Please use the following format when reporting your results . . .

Division A

hidde (Byzantines) beat stockwellpete (Arabs) 50-25

It is very helpful to me if we all get used to reporting the results in the same way, so please report the score as 50-25 rather than 25-50. This avoids much confusion when discussing match situations by PM with regards to adjudication or some other issue regarding the rules of the tournament.

Indians are never easy and they were used very well but terrain mattered in the end

Division D

MikeMarchant (Ghaznavid 962-1187 CE - Allies: Turkish) defeated bomber (Moravian 833-907 AD with German ally): 46/19

It was the elephants. It was all about the elephants. With the Moravians fielding something like 16+ cavalry and the Ghaznavid elephants in a bad mood, there was only ever going to be one outcome. I don't envy whoever has to clear up all the squashed Moravians.

Thanks for the game, bomber, and bad luck.


Best Wishes

Division D

Schweetness101 - Arab (Abbasid) 874-946 AD defeated MikeMarchant (Ghaznavid 962-1187 CE - Allies: Turkish): 40-16

The arab army had a favorable starting position on a low but wide plateau that could be defended with masses of cheap spears on the slope and massed archers shooting over. A lake also split the battle in two, with my left flank/mike's right being an infantry and massed archers melee where my veteran dailami foot could close quickly with the massed archers. Most of the battle though was an archer/horse archer ranged exchange over a line of spears. Mike started off very strong, easily scattering my light foot and light horse, but massed archer fire and a few lucky flanks broke some elephants that started a chain rout in my favor.

Here's a screenshot of the end game for the curious:

You can see I had a few units close to breaking and the battle could still have potentially gone either way, but I got a bit lucky and snagged a 26% disparity right as I hit the 40% threshold.

thanks for the game and gg Mike

Division D

MikeMarchant (Ghaznavid 962-1187 CE - Allies: Turkish) defeated Doyley50 (Anglo-Danish 1017-1041 AD): 71/40

This was a really tough scrap and for several turns I thought I had it, only for one of my units to break or for one of Alan's to rally. I should have been more patient and allowed my cavarly to work its way further round the flanks before charging in, but... I just can't resist charging in.

Alan suffered from having a very heavy slow moving army strung out in a long line, while my highly mobile army was able to choose where and when to attack. Hitting both flanks at once and leaving his centre alone, I was able to encircle enough Anglo Danes to cause serious problems, while most of his infantry struggled to turn and march to the sound of the buns (my elephants eating the buns, of course). My elephants wreaked havoc and won the game for me, really, and those Anglo Danish heavies who did manage to stand their ground were repeatedly hit in the rear and flanks by cavalry and light horse, until they decided to give up and go home for a bacon sandwich and an eponymous pastry.

Back luck, Alan, an epic battle, and a lot of fun to play. Thanks for the game.


Best Wishes

Division C

oscarius (Rus) beat markwatson360 (Frankish) 62-46

Advantageous terrain and narrow frontage helped me to hold my left flank long enough for the rest of my forces to defeat their foes and come to their aid. Even so it was a gruelling drawn-out bloodbath between two similarly compiled forces. Amusingly a 15 point rabble that was able to single-handedly pin down Mark's own flanking force for about four turns (and inflict a surprising amount of casualties too) might have won me the watch. Great match thanks

Nijis (Byzantine 963-987 AD) defeats (General Shapur - Arab (Conquest) 629-637 AD) 49 to 24

The dice were on the Byzantines' side, for this game. Veteran Muslim spear slammed into average mixed foot and... the mixed foot passed morale check after morale check. The Byzantines' longer line and cavalry superiority broke enough units to rout the Muslims before their left and center gave way.

Division D

Schweetness101 - Arab (Abbasid) 874-946 AD defeated gamercb - Rus 960-1053 AD: 60-54

A very close game that was touch and go the whole time. I don't think that the disparity in percent routed was ever much over 10%. I sent lancers ahead to meet Russian spears on a hilltop that dominated the map in the middle towards the russian side, with some spare cheap muslim spearmen holding the right, and a force of veteran dailami foot on the left. With lots of ranged units to cause disruptions first, I charged the dailami up the hill on the left, but out of the forest on my right a great mass of hitherto unseen Russian spearmen, massed archers, and horse archers emerged to roll up my weak right. Both of our respective right sides were routed, and by the end we had switched sides.

Here's a view of the end of the game:

Division C

markwatson360's (Franks) defeated Rob123's Indians 54-29.

The Indian elephants did quite a lot of damage but the medium indian foot were no match for the shieldwall's of the Franks on a mostly open map. An attritional battle. Thanks for the game Rob.
