Division A

SnuggleBunnies (Carthaginian (Hannibal in Africa) 202BC) defeats youngr (Italian Hill Tribes 490-275 BC with Latin Allies) 44-6

Italian Hill Tribes is a very tough army to work with indeed, so little of the credit goes to my maneuvering here I think.

Division D

Schweetness101- Carthaginian (Hannibal in Africa) 202 BC defeated GeneralKostas - Lysimachid 320-281 BC with Thracian (Hellenistic) 350-281 BC ally: 40-13

The Lysimamchid force deployed a powerful array of phalanxes and armoured hoplites on their right, with light troops, medium infantry and cavalry on their left. I had greatly inferior infantry, and so denied any main infantry engagement (the pikes didn't get an opportunity to fight at all) and instead wheeled around with my whole force to the Lysimachid left, where I could make the most of superiority in cavalry and lights to try and get to 40% on those alone.

Weekly round-up
Geffalrus (Antigonid) is still top in Division A with 2 wins from 2 starts. Snugglebunnies (Hannibal in Africa) also has 2 wins but has played 4 matches and XLegione (Samnite) has started with a win. The wheels have come off for paulmcneil (Galatians) at the top of Division B after his third successive defeat leaves him with just 4 wins from 8 matches after a blistering start. herm (Roman) and Morbio (Roman) have both won their first 2 matches and look likely to contest the top position very soon. In Division C DzonVejn (Saka) decisively won the top of the table contest against Tresantes (Pyrrhic) while fikabo (Jewish) moved into second place after his second win from 2 starts. Schweetness101 (Hannibal in Africa) has a firm grip on proceedings in Division D now after his fifth straight win while vakarr (Thracian) is in second place with 3 wins from 4 starts.

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
DzonVejn (Saka) 3 matches
Schweetness101 (Division D) 5 matches

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 9 out of 45 matches completed :|
Division B - 15 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division C - 10 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division D - 13 out of 45 matches completed :D

These are generally good match completion rates.

Player of the week
Schweetness101 (Division D) with 3 wins this week. :D

Division C

Bluefin (Kappadokian) defeats DzonVejn (Saka with allies) 40-10.

Just might have been the roughest terrain I've ever seen, which is exactly what the Kappa medium footers love.

Division D

Schweetness101- Carthaginian (Hannibal in Africa) 202 BC defeated bomber23 - Syracuse 412-281BC with Kyrenean Greek ally: 56-31

I tried an odd deployment in this game with my infantry on the far left on some rough ground and held back, with light cavalry way in front of them, while my non-light cavalry were on the far right with an elephant and light foot in front. I had some difficulty at first, not doing well with my light cavalry against the enemy light foot on my left, and losing almost all of my light foot on the right to enemy light foot and infantry charges. However, the overall plan of getting the Syracusan giant hoplite line split into two parts, with their left wing of hoplites committed against my right wing of faster cavalry, worked in that those cavalry of mine could return to support my infantry before his infantry left wing could cut back to join them. Ultimately, this left all of my cavalry and infantry working together against half of his infantry line, while the other half of his infantry line was way across the map.

Here is a shot from the end of the battle. My infantry and cavalry in the picture occupy where his right flank of infantry were, and his left flank, at this point consisting of 7 mostly untouched hoplites, are on their way back to help, but it was too late (2 of them almost got there):

Division A

SnuggleBunnies (Carthaginian (Hannibal in Africa) (5% routed) draws with Geffalrus (Antigonid) (2% routed)

The Carthaginians occupied some good rough ground. They attempted to gain skirmish superiority but were badly thrashed. The Antigonids stayed deployed in open ground with their phalanxes covered by Heavy Artillery, limiting the ability of the Carthaginian elephants to advance. With neither side willing to attack, both armies called it a day.

(0-0)

Division D

Schweetness101- Carthaginian (Hannibal in Africa) 202 BC defeated SLancaster - Indo-Greek 175 BC-10 AD with Indian 500 BC- 319 AD allies: 61-37

Was a close game, closer than the score betrays due a number of late game rallies for me. The battlefield was split by a forest in the middle that SLancaster deployed behind with his massed archers inside of it, and chariots and elephants on his right. I moved forward with a light foot screen to protect my infantry from massed archer fire, and attacked and routed the massed archers in the forest with phoenician foot and scutarii, but suffered some chain routing of my left wing from a chariot flank and elephant attack. My light foot also suffered from elephant pursuits, being regularly chased down and caught, leaving me down by quite a few points early in the match. However, the Indian close fighter and bowmen line in their middle and left eventually succumbed to the superior numbers and quality of Carthaginian foot, and a few cavalry flanks, while the veteran african spears held off a pike unit until I could get two flanks in on it.
