oscarius (Rus) beat Ulysisgrunt (Byzantne) 62 - 46

A large swamp in the centre of the map neatly saw both sides, lacking medium infantry, divided in two with the Byzantine general sending a whole cavalry force on one side while I supported my cavalry with axemen one flank and my regular infantry on the other. The klibanophoroi, deployed with the Byzantine infantry, gave me great cause for concern but my spearwalls and huscarls managed to contain and flank them. The skutatoi ended up swarmed by spearwalls who weren't much fussed by their bow fire. A good match, those klibanophoroi especially had me scared.

SLancaster (Indo-Greek 175 BC-10 AD with Indian 500 BC- 319 AD allies) defeated KiFi (Macedonian 320-261 BC with Greek ally) 52-17.

Harder fight than the score suggests. My elephants and archers did well. The centre held and I was able to turn the flank and put the enemy to flight.

rbodleyscott (Arab Conquest) defeated batesmotel (Khorasanian with Dailami allies) 50-25

As Chris said, the Arab Veteran Spearmen amoeba seemed inexorable, shrugging off the Dailami impact and then grinding them down.

A steep hill covered with light infantry neutralised the Khorasanian left wing cavalry (though these were more of a forlorn hope than anything else, being all his lower quality units), allowing me to concentrate all of my cavalry to hold off his right wing. His elephants attacked my armoured lancers twice, but they were able to break off, and then I was able to interpose spearmen to block the elephants from doing further damage.

My cavalry were mostly slaughtered, but they bought enough time for my infantry to grab the win.

(Chris: Apologies for no message on the last turn, I had not noticed that the rout difference was 25%. It was a great game, thanks)

In Division D SawyerK (Pictish with Scots) defeated Garokan (Roman with Arab) by 49 to 22. This was a hard fought match with the Picts relying on a patch of rough ground on their left flank to hold that side of battle while their right flank fought and won through a mixture of legionnaires, allies and cavalry.

Very tough game. The Romans held out for a long time in the centre. It was a war of attrition and I just had enough units left at the end to push the enemy to 60%.

Division A

a draw:
klayeckles (arab) 58 harveylh (roman) 43

romans, seeing the large cavalry arm of the arabs chose to take a defensive position with heavy woods on both flanks. The arabs began a long process of marching to the furthest corners of the map in an attempt to find a gap in the roman flanks. Battles broke out in the woods with both sides seeing some success. then the arabs finally got a single lancer into the rear of the romans. Soon gaps were opening and romans were charging forward in hopes of defeating the arab center before things completely fell apart. As night was falling it looked like the arab lancers might crash into the roman rear while others were threatening the flanks. but the romans found the rally horn and managed to convince a few routing troops to stay for the fight...night fell just in time to save the roman army...but Augustus would not be throwing any victory feasts. GG! another fun fight.

(2-2)

The second Time Control check was scheduled for today. Because this season started on a Monday and is actually 10 weeks and 6 days long I am going to allow an extra few days and do the final check this Sunday November 10th (when there will still be 5 weeks of the tournament remaining). I have checked through the latest league tables (including the results that have been posted since Sunday) and there are a few issues of concern at the moment. This morning I will send a group PM to all the players who have not yet registered three results in each section they have entered. If you are a reserve hoping that there might be a place for you then final decisions will be made on Sunday, although if players tell me before then that they have taken on too many matches then there might be some news before then.
