Group 2 (Alexander's Conquests)

Geffalrus (Thracian Triballi) defeated MikeMarchant (Indians) 45-4 ..... good game to my opponent who was dealt some truly terrible elephant luck.

The Thracian Triballi arrived in India as an allied force within Alexander's conquering army. Splitting off to partake in the plundering of a local Hindu temple, the warbands were blocked by a large force of elephants and archers. Both sides formed up, with the Indian army adopting a thin center of elephants and archers, while weighting the wings with melee infantry, cavalry, and more archers. Screened by a mass of peltasts, the warbands charged forward and tied up the elephants just long enough for reserve units of Thracian spears to infiltrate the melee and flank the elephants. In the space of two turns of combat, 5 elephant units chain routed and sent the Indian center into flight. Sadly, most of the Thracian army died of exotic bowel ailments that were the result of over-eating local curry in the battle's aftermath.

Things start to go badly for the elephants as the Thracians activate a Zerg swarm maneuver......

Sadly, our strategy was severey undermined by a dodgy catapult salesman. He was supposed to supply us with tremendous catapults, absolutely tremendous, which would have allowed us to launch the curries into the Thracian camp on the eve of battle. Anticipating the Thracian overindulgnece with the curries, and the consequent exotic bowel movements, we'd imagined an easy stroll across the battlefield while Thracian all about waved little white flags in the form of Andrex.

We only trusted him bcause he was the leader of an elephant party, and his name reminded us of our own adorable pachyderms, but the absolutely tremendous catapults failed to arrive, and the catapult salesman was nowhere to be found. Having left our unneeded, but brave, warriors at home, we'd fielded little more than curry cooks and elephants. And it was the Thracians who Trumped us. So sad, so tremdously, tremndously sad.

Great game, Geffalrus, and one in which I was well outplayed.


Best Wishes

Mike

Group 2 (Alexander's Conquests)

Geffalrus (Thracian Triballi) defeated IMC (Macedonians) 45-15. Good game to my opponent for a well fought match.

In order to cross over to Anatolia, Alexander first needed to pacify the Thracian Tribali on his Northern flank. Battle was joined in between two large forests that protected the Thracian flanks from the Macedonian heavy horse. While the Macedonian medium foot got tied up hunting skirmishers in the forest, the Triballi were able to squeeze a few units past the battling warbands and pikes, allowing for a succession of flanking attacks. These attacks, combined with a general's death and some bad cohesion double drops, allowed the warbands to roll of the phalanx in a speedy fashion. Eager to get on with the business of conquering Asia, Alexander opted to instead marry a Triballi princess, coopt the Triballi into his army, and continue marching east. Excited by the prospect of plundering Persia with their new Macedonian friends, the Triballi raiders turned their eyes towards a new foe.......

The chaotic battle line exposes exploitable openings.

Instructions

Either player may set up the challenge in this section. Remember to PM your opponent as well as placing the challenge and password in this thread.

For matches in this section players will select "Open Battle" and will field a "Large" army and choose a "Wide" battlefield unless otherwise directed. Players are free to customise their army before each battle so "Default" is the correct Force Selection option. Terrain will always be "Pot Luck" unless otherwise specified. There are no exceptions to this standard set-up for a match. If a match is set-up incorrectly for any reason then it must be re-started as soon as possible.

Players will need to have the base game, the Immortal Fire and the Rise of Persia DLC's, and you will also need to download the TT mod (v1.5.3) to enter this section. You can get the TT multiplayer mod from here . . .

http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtop ... 77&t=89442

The final % scores for each player are taken from the in-battle display in the top left-hand corner of the screen and not the Final Losses screen that appears after the battle has ended where losses are adjusted for wounded and deserted troops.

Reporting the result of a match is the responsibility of the winning player. However, if you are the loser in a match and notice that the result has not been posted within 24 hours please post the result yourself. This helps to keep the league tables up to date.

Please be sure to familiarise yourself with both the Rules of Competition and the Players' Guide.

Hi, stockwellpete!

The administrative burden of sorting this tournament must be akin to organizing the D-Day landings! Good on you!

Classical Antiquity: There is no mention of using the TT Mod for this tournament. Do we create challenges without it for Classical Antiquity?

[SOLVED] Late Antiquity: Kingdom of Soissons - I can't find this listed as an Army, though I have the Legions and Belsarius expansions.

Kingdom of Soissons is not found listed in alphabetical order. It can be found near the Romano-British armies.
