Division B

IMC (Viking) with a mutual defeat vs youngr (Anglo-Danish) 62-60

Thanks for an exhausting game. Well played Sir

I've now finished 4 games with the Anglo-Danes with 2 mutual breaks, 1 draw and 1 loss (which I think I could have won but for very disproportional luck at key moments). I've scored over 50 points in all games. Is this a record?!!

Cheers
Richard

Weekly round-up
CheAhn (Arab Conquest) is still well out on his own at the top of Division A but 3 wins by Nosy_Rat (Abbasid) has taken him up into third place and back if fifth place is harveylh (Khorasanian) who has won all 3 matches so far. Both these players are in a good position now to mount a challenge for the top place. At the bottom Cunningcairn (Byzantine) is in dire straits with just 1 point from 6 matches. In Division B front runner rbodleyscott (Arab Conquest) has suffered his first defeat to second-placed Geffalrus (Polish) but everyone else is still tightly bunched together. In Division C GDod (Arab Conquest) now has 6 wins from 8 starts and has a commanding 12 point lead. It is not clear who his challengers will be but they are likely to include sunnyboy (Scots), lydianed (Ghaznavid) and fikabo (Polish). Schweetness101 (Abbasid) has a 13 point lead in Division D and has nearly built an insurmountable lead, although Questar17 (Pictish) could make a challenge after winning his first 2 matches.

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
harveylh (Division A) 3 matches
Nosy_Rat (Division A) 3 matches
gamercb (Division D) 3 matches
Schweetness101 (Division D) 3 matches

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 22 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division B - 15 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division C - 19 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division D - 19 out of 45 matches completed :D

These are very good match completion rates.

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

Div C

oscarius (Rus) beat lydianed (Ghaznavid) - 63 - 46

My foes massed eight elephants (I've been facing a lot of these in every era..) didn't prove quite enough to seriously dent my spearwalls while my bowmen and light foot slowly but surely won the shootout against the ghilman. On a battlefield dominated by hostile elephants, rough-ground entrenched bowmen and horse archers the Russian cavalry gave a so-so performance but the success of the other arms led us to victory. Thanks for the fun match!

Division B

rbodleyscott (Arab Conquest) defeated devoncop (Byzantines + Georgians) 8-4 (devoncop conceded)

This concession was entirely reasonable as the massed Arab veteran spearmen were rapidly chewing up the Skutatoi/Archer line with no real hope of a significantly counterbalancing Byzantine breakthrough anywhere else on the field.

Divsion B

melm (Andalusian) beat devoncop (Byzantines + Georgians) 12-8 (devoncop conceded)

Possibly devoncop morale was broken by rbodleyscott's Muslim conquerors nightmare that he had no willingness to combat with my veteran muslim spearmen as well.

Division C

fikabo(Polish with Vikings) defeated Paulmcnell (Dailami) 41:9

There was two hills: one occupy Polish, second occupy Dailami.
Dailami attack my hill from Polish right side and Polish attack Dailami hill from Polish left side.
Both attack has good chance to break front so it was game who first do it.
About 3 turn before end something strange happen. My Shieldwall which was in mele uphill with Dailami (FOG show combat result something like 5%:40%, not remember exactly) make Dailami double drop morale.
This help me break as first and win game.

Division C

fikabo(Polish with Vikings) defeated Rob123 (Indian) 44:13

The Indians were in 1/3 hidden in the forests they had on both wings.
My troops were waiting on the hill. Because the Indians wisely did not eager to attack after blocking the troops in the forest, my troops attacked. Because in centre was mostly open terrain (except stream near hill) my heavier units had an easier task, but despite this and result it was not an easy battle to win.

Division D

MikeMarchant (Ghaznavid 962-1187 CE - Allies: Turkish) defeated lunecastle (Byzantine 988-1041 with Georgian ally) - 61-58

I don't even know how to describe this battle, but it was murderous scrap until there was nothing left of either army. The Ghaznavids held a significant lead most of the way through until they just ran out of steam and on the penultimate turn the Byzantines took a 1 point lead, causing me to fear for the result. Man-of-the-match definately goes to the unit of Varangian Guard that held out, all on its own, turn after turn after turn, being charged constantly by Ghaznavid cavalry, from the front, the flanks and the rear. Even when I finally fragmented the obstinate bastard it just rallied straight away. Fittingly. perhaps, the battle ended when those Varangians finally fell. Harald Hardrada would be proud.

Bad luck lunecastle, an even scrap that could have gone either way and I consider myself lucky that it ended with the Ghaznavids in command of the field. Neither of us deserved to lose this one. A really great game, and I'm grateful for it.

Best Wishes

Mike

Division B

rbodleyscott (Arab Conquest) defeated Nijis (Byzantine) 55-30

Great battle on very interesting terrain.

The true battle, as would be reported in a book, was fought on the far side of the steam, but preceding the clash of the main forces, a major skirmish was fought for control of the huge hill in the middle of the map. The Arab light infantry, assisted by Dailami and Bedouin foot took the hill, while the Arab spearmen, divided into two halves, advanced round both sides of the hill. The Byzantines awaited on the far side of the stream, arrayed on their own lesser hill in serried ranks, bows at the ready.

And so the main battle began.

In for a penny, in for a pound, the Arabs attacked up the hill, relying on the superior quality of their infantry and massed bow support from the central hill. After heavy fighting the Arab infantry swept the Byzantine infantry from the field, though meanwhile most of their cavalry was killed buying time.
