Division D

rs2excelsior (Viking, Ireland 900-1049 AD with Scots 851-1051 AD allies) beat ggarynorman (Byzantine 963-987 AD) 41-7

The Vikings deployed with their shieldwalls and huscarls in the open, flanked on one side by a large wing of Pict/Irish auxiliaries hidden in the forest on their right and mounted huscarls to the left. The Byzantines hung back, forming a line just in front of the lakes, with cavalry to each flank, a unit of cataphracts in reserve in the center, and artillery backing the position up. The Vikings pressed forwards, trying to minimize the time they spent under fire from the Skoutatoi's archers, while the Byzantine cavalry fell back and the reserve infantry moved to refuse their left flank against the medium foot horde. For once, I actually managed at least local superiority in cavalry on my left flank, and managed to roll up the Byzantine horse there while my reserves extended the line to the left to prevent my main attack from being outflanked. Not many fancy maneuvers here - although my medium foot ran into trouble on the right, having very limited success in attacking the Byzantine skoutatoi and getting outflanked by cavalry, they managed to hang on long enough for the Byzantine center and right to collapse under the Viking assault.

The battlefield at the end, zoomed out a bit to show the woods I used to initially conceal my medium foot:

Good game to you, it was a tough matchup against the high quality Viking infantry.

Division D

rs2excelsior (Byzantine 551-578 AD) beat ggarynorman (Palmyran 258-273 AD) 61-32

This was a tough one that I wasn't really expecting to win. The Palmyrans were deployed with their archers on the left in a patch of rough ground supported by Roman auxiliaries, and their cataphracts and legions to the right secured on a small hill. The Byzantine infantry advanced against the archers into the rough, while the lancers and horse archers attempted to harass and work around the flanks. Despite an early lead, the Byzantine position felt fragile, with the cavalry suffering heavily to Palmyran arrows and the excellent Roman auxilia holding up well in the rough ground. However, a few things happened to tip things over - the Palmyran cataphracts were flanked and defeated, two of the legion cohorts got drawn out and flanked, and one of the auxiliaries autobroke before it could finish off the Byzantine heavy infantry it was facing.

The battlefield at the end of the game:

Division E

Stew101 (Arab Conquest) beat Snooky51 (Ghaznavid). Score 48 : 20.

Love the adventure of my opponent to try something different - 8 elephants!
Not a good match for them I'm afraid and the Arab Spearmen stood their charges.
They could not all come at once and those flanking arrived a turn or two late.

Good agme Snooky, see you next time.

Division D

edb1815 - Breton 411-579 AD defeats Supervark - Sassanid Persian 477-590 AD with Hepthalite 350-570 AD allies 40%-12%

Well played by Supervark. Thanks for a fun game. This was a cagey affair that saw alot of maneuvering by the Persian horse to start the battle. Arrows started raining down as the Breton medium foot tried chasing away the horse archers. The Persian infantry stayed in reserve as the archers sought to soften up the Breton forces. There was a hilly area with some rough patches on the Breton right along with a wood. On the left a swampy area provided protection from the cavalry. These areas were the focal points for the Breton deployment with the lancers and noble cavalry trying to keep away from the elephants. Fortunately the elephants ended up being fairly well neutralized for most of the game with one being routed. Some Persian cavalry was pinned by Breton horse and then pounced on by multiple medium foot units. The Persian infantry then came up with an elephant in support. A Breton below ave heavy foot luckily held the elephants charge and the Breton lancers finished off the Persian foot archers to complete the victory. The Breton ability to field numerous medium light spear helped in this battle.

That's it for me in here this season. It was fun playing with my fourth choice army. :D

Straight up affair with the Veteran Muslim Spearmen outclassing the Viking Shieldwall. The Viking army can't afford to put enough of the elite Hurscarl units on the field to even things up.

Weekly round-up
In Division A a seventh victory for Nosy_Rat has confirmed him in the runners-up position, while in Division B nyczar (Spartan) recovered from his first defeat to end with a win to set a target of 30 points at the top of the table. XLegione (Roman) needs 5 points from his last 2 games to win automatic promotion, but one of those is against Questar17 (Ptolemaic) who can still win the division outright if he wins his last 4 matches convincingly. The automatic relegation place will be decided by the outcome of the GDod (Seleucid) versus ulysisgrunt (Lysimachid) match. GDod just needs a point to avoid the drop. NikiforosFokas (Hannibal in Africa) has won automatic promotion from Division C after winning his last match to finish just 2 points ahead of Swuul (Samnite). phoyle3290 (Hannibal in Italy) has finished third after defeating devoncop (Etruscan). In Division D bomber23 (Hannibal in Africa) secured another win to complete his escape from the bottom of the table. Rob123 (Hannibal in Africa) will be relegated unless ggarynorman (Indo-Greek) fails to get a point from his last match against Bluefin (Syracusan). Division E finished last week and Division F has been completed this week with DanZanzibar (Carthaginian) winning the vital last match against Blagrot (Samnite) to take his third automatic promotion of the season. The defeat for Blagrot means that he is pipped for second place by random27 Ptolemaic).

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
XLegione (Division B) 7 matches
NikiforosFokas (Division C) 9 matches and finished
DanZanzibar (Division F) 8 matches and finished

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 44 out of 45 matches completed
Division B - 36 out of 45 matches completed
Division C - 45 out of 45 matches completed
Division D - 44 out of 45 matches completed
Division E - 45 out of 45 matches completed
Division F - 45 out of 45 matches completed

These are excellent match completion rates, Division B is a little slow. :D

Player of the week
NikiforosFokas (Division C) and DanZanzibar (Division F) who both won their last match of the season to secure automatic promotion. :D
