Division D

rs2excelsior (Roman) beat GeneralKostas (Lysmachid) 54-29.

After suffering defeats in Carthage and Thrace, the legion was eager to redeem itself against Alexander's successor. Initially, the Romans deployed in a steep, narrow valley, with medium infantry covering the rough hilltops on either side. The Lysmachid phalanx deployed on a hilltop just outside of the range of Roman artillery, with their own medium foot and hoplites in the open ground to their right. As the Lysmachids showed no interest in advancing from their position after a couple of turns, the Romans made the first move and advanced obliquely to the left, hoping to engage and destroy the lighter enemy forces. The Romans pushed the Lysmachid left back, and the phalanx finally advanced off of the hilltop, harassed by Roman skirmishers.

The Roman and Lysmachid cavalry forces each made a wide flanking maneuver to the right. The Roman push was blocked by Thracian infantry in rough terrain. The Lysmachid horse were out of the fight for a while, but they sent off the Roman artillery and turned towards the legionnaires, now engaged to the front and flank. Despite being flank charged by Lysmachid lancers, the legions caught in the pincer fought like lions, refusing to budge even though outnumbered and outflanked. Though they eventually gave way, they bought time for the Romans to see off the other Lysmachid infantry, allow Roman troops to flank charge and break one of the phalanxes, and edge out enough of a lead to swing a Roman victory. The Legate is considering awards for many of the centurions and legionnaires of those cohorts.

The fight was decided by a confused scuffle right in the middle, with both sides getting outflanked. Despite a well-executed cavalry flanking maneuver, the Romans proved exceptionally resilient, surprising both of us in the amount of punishment they took without yielding. Well played to General Kostas, bad luck on your part (or good luck on mine) tipped this one. GG.

Division D for Determined

Barrold713 (Palmyran) defeats gamercb (Romans) 61-51

in a brutal slugging match where my massed archers managed to do enough damage to the Roman cav that my superior legionnaires held the center and my cataphracts held the flanks. It was costly but eventually broke enough points to pull out a squeaker.

Div D

SLancaster (Indo-Greek 175 BC-10 AD with Indian 500 BC- 319 AD allies) defeated GeneralKostas (Lysimachid 320-281 BC with Thracian (Hellenistic) 350-281 BC ally). 68-31.

My Indians did well and defeated the General. We are on a roll now..
1) Basically, i underestimated my opponent and did many mistakes in the battle line. Great victory for the Indo-Greek army.

2) I noticed something weird in the battle. Indian Archers with no impact capabilities attacked from rear against my pike unit (already in melee). That added +200 PoA to the archers. The result was the pikes to be disrupted, fragmented and broken in the same turn. 791/931 men withdrew from the battlefield. Not even the half men.
Why archers obtained suddenly impact capabilities?
The archers were massed archers not skirmishers.. like infantry. It was a rear charge, too.

Division A

SnuggleBunnies (Thracian (Getae) 680-330 BC) defeats Cunningcairn (Hebrew 681-586 BC with Egyptian 664-571 BC ally) 62-47

A near run thing, in which stubborn Egyptian Guard Spearmen resisted all attacks by Thracian Medium Foot, shielding their Heavy Chariots from flank attacks. In the end, sheer numbers won the day for the Thracians.

Weekly round-up
Snugglebunnies (Hannibal in Africa) has moved to the top of Division A after registering his fourth win of the season but still unbeaten Geffalrus (Antigonid) is just 2 points behind with 2 gaes in hand. Cunningcairn (Ptolemaic) and MikeC_81 (Roman) are further back but also have games in hand and may still be able to make a challenge. At the bottom MorkinTheFree (Pontic) has had a difficult start with 3 straight defeats. herm (Roman) is the new leader in Division B after his fourth straight win and his main challenger looks to be Morbio (also Roman) who has won his first 2 matches. Ulysisgrunt (Jewish) is struggling for the second season in a row with 4 straight defeats. In Division C early leader DzonVejn (Saka) has been pegged back with 2 defeats and now has a large group of players sitting behind him, all of whom have matches in hand. Schweetness101 (Hannibal in Africa) now looks odds-on favourite to win Division D after securing his seventh consecutive win this week, while GeneralKostas (Lysimachid) looks likely to end up with the wooden spoon after suffering his seventh defeat.

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
Geffalrus (Division A) 5 matches
Snugglebunnies (Division A) 4 matches
herm (Division B) 4 matches
Schweetness101 (Division D) 7 matches

Division B - 19 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division C - 14 out of 45 matches completed :D

Weekly round-up
Snugglebunnies (Jewish Revolt) has taken over the top spot in Division A this week after posting his fifth win from 8 starts. His stay there is likely to be short-lived as dkalenda (Palmyran) has 4 games in hand after 4 straight wins. In Division B early front runner XLegione (Arab City) has continued his fine start with a fifth straight victory, but paulmcneil (Ancient British) has also started very well with 3 straight wins. Division C looks like being a very close affair. desertedfox (Indian) is the current leader with 4 wins from 6 starts but expect challenges from currently unbeaten Breogan (Germanic Foot Tribes) and MorkinTheFree (Romano-British). Division D has not really got going yet but MikeMarchant (Ancient British) has made a very good start with 3 straight wins.

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
dkalenda (Division A) 4 matches
Snugglebunnies (Division A) 3 matches
paulmcneil (Division B) 3 matches
XLegione (Division B) 5 matches
MikeMarchant (Division D) 3 matches

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 16 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division B - 16 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division C - 16 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division D - 10 out of 45 matches completed :cry:

These are good match completion rates, Division D is slow.

Player of the week
Snugglebunnies (Division A) and paulmcneil (Division B) with 3 wins each this week. :D

Division C

oscarius (Roman) beat MorkinTheFree (Romano-British) 62 - 52

An evenly pitted head-to-head clash of quality vs quantity on a flat plain saw neither side gain a significant advantage even to the end. My investment in Armenian massed archers proved unwise due to the large unit numbers, armour and size of my foe (warbands and protected medium foot). However early success in the centre and the maneuverability of the legions allowed me to prevent the Britons from engaging in any serious flanking. A tough match that I was lucky to win considering my overly shooty army composition.

(3-1)
