Division B

lydianed (Samnites and Gauls) defeated ulysisgrunt (Jewish) 60:42.

Lots of Jewish zealots put up a dogged resistance on a hill and exacted a heavy price from the Samnites who were forced to attack uphill. Thanks for the game.

Division A

SnuggleBunnies (Carthaginian (Hannibal in Africa) 202BC) defeats MikeC_81 (Roman 199-106 with Greek allies) 54-24

After much skirmishing, the armies ended up meeting on basically flat open ground, but the Carthaginian elephants proved decisive.

Division A

Geffalrus (Antigonids) defeats Sennacherib (Pergamenes and Greeks) 9-0 via honorable surrender.

In an attempt to counter the superior unit choice variety of the Pergamenes, the Antigonids decided to go big with pikes, elephants, and horse skirmishers. In turn, the Pergamenes went big with cavalry, Thureophoroi, and foot skirmishers. The Antigonids attempted a fancy flank march that had the effect of drawing the thureos out of their rough ground defensive position and onto the open ground. With a prayer to all the gods, the Antigonid pikes swung around and advanced on the thureos with elephants in support. Unable to wrap around the Antigonid line, the thureos were forced to engage the phalanx frontally. A brave Pergamene general charged his opposite number in a thureos vs. thureos clash.........and was immediately speared in the eye for his troubles. His death disordered the neighboring thureos and shocked the Pergamene commander. This, combined with the Cataphracts failing a fall back roll and then getting promptly charged by the Antigonid elephants, convinced the Pergamene general that all hope was lost.

Good game to my opponent who was undone by some particularly terrible luck.

The Pergamene line in dire straights as raw thureos and disrupted regular thureos find themselves locked in melee with fresh pikes.

Div D
vakarr (Thracians with Greek Allies) def Kifi (Macedonians) 53-14 ("Final Losses") or 50-19 (end of battle). The Thracians marched up one side of the battlefield on top of a flat hill that had some patches of rough terrain on it and were able to gain a local superiority at one end of the Macedonian line, which eventually collapsed (a pike phalanx actually exploded or at least disappeared in a puff of javelins). The Macedonians were slow to turn to meet the Thracians but put up a good fight, with the Thracians at 25% worried that they were going to have to fight the pikemen head-on but luckily some rallies took them down below that figure. A blow was struck for freedom from Macedonian tyranny this day!!! My first ever multiplayer game was against a Macedonian army, and I lost, it so it's nice to beat them this time.

Cheap Phoenician foot, cavalry, and skirmishers held the shaky right flank long enough for the left to be victorious and begin rolling up the line.

Division A

Geffalrus (Antigonids) and XLegione (Samnites and Gauls) fight it out to a bloody draw, 58-38

Initially, neither player wanted to commit their heavy infantry as the Samnites held a dominant defensive position on a low ridge with rough patches, anchored by a rocky mesa. To gain an advantage, both sides did the dance of the skirmisher. Much violence between scantily clad men was accomplished, but no decisive result was achieved. The Antigonid phalanx did a few shuffle step maneuvers to see how the Samnites would react. The Samnites in turn, ignored the complex choreography and stayed on their ridge. Depressed by the cold reaction to their dance number, the spirits of the Antigonids were raised when they noticed that some Samnite units had left the mighty mesa in support of the skirmishers currently chasing the Cretan archers. Throwing caution to the wind, the Antigonid phalanx pivoted and marched to engage them with lancers and thureos racing ahead to tie them down. The Samnites were quick to act, and set off in pursuit of the pursuers. The Antigonids were unable to reach the high ground before they were forced to turn and confront the Samnites.........on open ground. A tremendous and bloody clash ensued. The Antigonid pikes swatted down Samnite mediums where they could, but sheer numbers started to tell, and the pikes were gradually outflanked. Complete disaster was averted when the Antigonid cavalry returned on the scene to drive away the Samnite horse and allow the elephants to go on the offensive into the flanks of the Samnite infantry. Two times was victory almost secured, and then snatched away by the clutch rally of a Samnite unit far, far away from the action. Night fell, and the battered armies were forced to withdraw.

Good game to my worthy opponent.

Darkness brings an end to a bloody afternoon.

Division C

edb1815 (Thracian) draws with Karvon (Sarmatian) 30%-29%

The terrain with bits woods on the flanks and bits of rough terrain and trees scattered about did not favor the Sarmatian lancers. The Sarmatians won the skirmisher battle and advanced finding the Thracian center held by Antigonid allied heavy infantry and an elephant which caused some havoc. The Sarmatians then withdrew to the more open side of the field and more desultory combat occurred (Both sides trying to get at least to the 20% threshold) as night fell on the battlefield. Well played by Karvon.

(2-2)

Probably the closest battle I have ever played. Both armies were completely spent and in the last few rounds both of us went to the brink of breaking and back again. I think going into the last round it was 54% to 52%. Another great contest XLegione! Thanks for the game.

SLancaster (Indo-Greek 175BC-10AD with Indian 500BC-319AD ally) beat vakarr (Classical Thracian with Greek allies) 63% - 30%.

It was a good game and my first win with this army in the league. I haven't used the Indians before. After some manoeuvring my left hit his right flank with some force. Thracian wills crumbled in the face of spears, massed archers, elephants and tribesman from Assam. I also had a few chariots running around. Thanks for the game!
