Division B

Geffalrus (Polish) defeats rbodleyscott (Arab Conquest) 59-31 in a rolling brawl of a battle.

Deeply concerned by the giant mass of superior spears backed by lancers, the Poles spent most of the battle shuffling backward and shooting forward. Their hopes rested in the slim advantage provided by their 3 superior armored spears and their slightly larger cavalry force. The Arab formation did an excellent job of protecting the vulnerable left and rear flanks via a combination of veteran spears and lancers. Eventually, the Polish backpedal ran out of the room, and the two lines slammed into each other. The Polish commander said a quick prayer and hoped that this lesser spears would hold out long enough for something to happen.

And something did. The Arab advance resulted in a slight over-extensions that could only be exploited if a couple Polish cavalry units impaled themselves on the flank infantry units. The ability of skirmishers to box units in and prevent them from retreating made it's appearance. The gap was open and some Polish nobles and attendants rushed into the gap. With the lines engaged fully, a Polish cavalry unit found itself with a plethora of flanking opportunities and a ticking clock; the Arab rearguard recognized the danger and wheeled about to seal the gap. What resulted was a regular old ballroom blitz as the flanker flanked the infantry, but was then flanked by the Arab cavalry, who were in turned flanked themselves by the Polish harassing force that they'd previously been blocking. The Arab infantry did their best to rally back into the fight, only to be sent packing again by the Polish cavalry zigzagging around the field of battle. Shortly before nightfall, the Arab commander was forced call it quits.

As would be expected, a very tough and good game.

Can you spot the gap?

Really close game. I had a lot of luck, secured win 2 turns before end and Byzantines didn't rally... Really close game.

Shouldn't I have 4 points instead of 5? One marginal defeat and one victory?

To avoid confusion - now, after three games, one vicory and two marginal defeats I think I should have 5 points...

Great report Geffalrus, are you a writer?

Bloody battle, a lot of emotion and fun I received from it, probably you deserved the victory but the fate decided for another result.
Non-professionally. I find it's a good way to add extra spice to things I enjoy.........like gaming and ancient history. These matches can be crazy fun, and I feel compelled to share the twists and turns.

Fate is a fickle mistress - that much we all know. I'm smart enough to know that I should always, ALWAYS have some light cav available to deal with such things. And yet, they always get caught up elsewhere. You're very capable skirmishing saw to that. :wink:
I have to say, I ran across this league at the end of the last season and eagerly read all of the battle reports from you and others who took the time to describe the battle they fought. I loved what was essentially a massive collection of battle reports, and have attempted to put as much detail into my (alarmingly few!) reports on these threads myself.

Division D

Schweetness101 - Arab (Abbasid) 874-946 AD defeated bomber23 - Moravian 833-907 AD with German ally: 53-20

Split by a large hill in the middle, the battle ended up as an infantry clash on the right, and a mostly cavalry one on the left, while bomber took the hill. Bomber123 had a few good flanks and breaks early on, and I thought he had me for the first half of the battle, but the greater number of Arab cavalry, in tandem with massed archers and spearmen, overcame early setbacks against the Moravian/German lancers, and the Moravian lack of medium foot was a liability in some rough terrain.

There is a mistake Mike. Your army is Ancient British 60-80 AD with Roman 24-196 AD ally. You must create the game again in the lobby.

Sorry, the mistake was in the wording of the challenge. The battle was set up correctly.
