Division A

sunnyboy (Lydian) beat SnuggleBunnies (Thracian) 44-18

The Lydians managed to somewhat successfully maneuver away from the broken ground that dominated much of the centre of the map. With the fight mostly on open ground the Thracian medium offensive spear struggled to match the Lydians armoured hoplites.

Thanks for the game, well played.

Weekly round-up
A very interesting situation is developing in Division A where early frontrunner CheAhn (Arab Conquest) has now lost a second match to leave him 10 points clear of second-placed harveylh (Khorasanian) who now has 4 games in hand. Further back both Nosy_Rat (Abbasid) and Triarii (Spanish) have 2 wins from 3 starts and could still challenge for the top position. Something very weird is happening in Division B where just 1 point separates second from ninth. rbodleyscott (Arab Conquest) seems to have decided he is better off out of whatever is happening and has gone to the front with 2 wins and a draw from his first 3 matches. GDod (Arab Conquest) is the early leader in Division C with 4 wins from 5 starts while Schweetness101 (Abbasid) has extended his lead in Division D with his fifth win from 6 starts. Questar17 (Pictish) has started well by winning his first 2 matches.

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
harveylh (Division A) 3 matches
rbodleyscott (Division B) 3 matches

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 18 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division B - 11 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division C - 15 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division D - 13 out of 45 matches completed :D

These are good match completion rates.

Player of the week
rbodleyscott (Division B) with 2 wins and a draw this week to go top of the table. :D

Division D

Schweetness101 - Arab (Abbasid) 874-946 AD defeated Garokan - Byzantine 963-987 AD: 54-23

Expecting an infantry battle, I lined up with a mostly infantry force with a decent complement of cavalry, but was surprised to find myself facing an army that was the opposite! The Byzantines had a small infantry force in their middle, and a very wide line of cavalry on each side. I marched forward as quickly as possible with my best infantry in the middle to take out what infantry the Byzantines did have, while drawing in my flanks as much as possible to delay the inevitable cavalry double envelopment.The Byzantine outnumbered skoutatoi fell quickly to veteran dailami foot, and a few cavalry routs on each side made up the rest of the Byzantine casualties.

gg to Garokan

A message to players in Division D

cromlechi should be back now to resume his matches.

Tomorrow is the day for the first Time Control check. Players are required to have completed one match in each section that they have entered. There are a number of exemptions including players who have also entered the Themed Event (these matches take priority) and those who have joined the tournament after it started as reserves. I will be sending PM's today and I will also be checking the in-game multi-player lobby to identify challenges that may have been missed in the early season rush.

I have just done my preliminary check and all divisions and groups in Classical Antiquity, Early Middle Ages, Biblical and the Themed Event have already passed the Time Control check. There are a few players who have not registered a result in these sections but they either have exemptions (entered Themed Event or joined recently as a reserve) or have notified me that they would be away at the start of the tournament (cromlechi). So I will just be checking Late Antiquity more thoroughly where there are 10 players yet to register a result although 5 of them also have exemptions. So, overall, things are looking very good indeed. :D

I have completed the multi-player lobby check (up to and including challenges posted on 14th October) and I have found nine potentially missed challenges. I have sent PM's to the players involved asking them to start the match as soon as they have a free space. Again, the situation is not too bad at all really. :D

Division B

General Shapur - Kingdom of Soissons 461-486 AD defeats devoncop - Moorish 350-698 AD 51:20

A fun see sawing game. Pulling back against the moorish advance then a reversal chasing them all the way to the other side of the field. Went to the last turn.

Division D

MikeMarchant (Ancient British 60 BCE-80 CE - Allies: Roman 24-196) defeated phoyle3290( Lombard 568-569 AD): 62/53

This was a real slugfest that went right to the wire. The advantage seemed to swing back and forth between us, and phoyle could easily have come out with the victory instead of me, but the gods of war (or the dice, if you're less religiously inclined) answered my sacrifices more favourably than his.

Great game, phoyle, you were very unlucky in this one.


Best Wishes
