Division A

harveylh – Khorasanian 821-1003 AD with Arab (Abbasid) 815-835 AD ally defeats Cunningcairn - Byzantine 963-987 AD with Arab (Syria/Iraq) 890-1008 AD ally, 55-26

On a fairly open map, the Muslim infantry outfought the Byzantine infantry but the Byzantine cavalry made it a tough and hard-fought battle. Good game.

Division B

Geffalrus (Poles) defeated IMC (Vikings and Franks) 42-8

A rematch from last season, the Poles and the Vikings faced each other once more on an open field. Military reforms had provided the Poles with a powerful force of dismounted noble riders and cheap mounted grooms, while the Viking alliance with the Franks gained them a supply of veteran horse to counter the Polish cavalry. With a wide open plain on the coast to fight on, the Vikings brought a mass of Huscarls and lancers, while the Poles brought a large mounted contingent, the new model spears, and a bunch of raw levies. The Huscarls headed straight for the juicy levies, while the Polish cavalry rode wide around the Viking right flank as it advanced. Frankish horsemen were dispatched to cover the flank, but were shot up and overwhelmed by the Polish cavalry and foot skirmishers. Meanwhile, the Polish right wing infantry attacked the Vikings at a gap in their formation and snuck some cavalry through to start hitting the Viking shield wall from behind. The Poles were able to rout just enough Vikings to end the battle before the Huscarls could smash through the furiously back-pedaling levy spears in the Polish center.

Good game to IMC.

The decisive assault by the Polish right wing finds some gaps in the Viking line and get to work flanking shieldwalls and huscarls.

Weekly round-up
It is still very exciting at the top of Division A where three players are in with a chance of being the champion this season. CheAhn (Arab Conquest) has a very creditable 6 wins from 8 starts but he can still be caught by Nosy_Rat (Abbasid) and unbeaten harveylh (Khorasanian). At the bottom Cunningcairn (Byzantine) is almost certain to be relegated. In Division B rbodleyscott (Arab Conquest) has posted a very good target of 30 points from his nine matches. Both melm (Andalucian) and Geffalrus (Polish) have chances to overtake this total but will almost certainly need 8 wins to do so. In Division C GDod (Arab Conquest) is still out in front by 3 points although he has completed his matches now. It looks certain that fikabo (Polish), who posted his fifth win from 5 starts) will soon hit the top spot, while oscarius (Rus) and sunnyboy (Scots) are still in with a shout if fikabo slips up. At the bottom the automatic relegation place is between Ulysisgrunt (Byzantine) and Rob123 (Hindu). Another 30 point target has been set in Division D by Schweetness 101 (Abbasid) who has now completed his fixtures. One player, Questar17 (Pictish) has a reasonable chance of overtaking this total after starting with 3 wins and a draw from his first 4 matches.

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
harveylh (Division A) 5 matches
Nosy_Rat (Division A) 5 matches
Geffalrus (Division B) 3 matches
melm (Division B) 3 matches
rbodleyscott (Division B) 4 and finished
fikabo (Division C) 5 matches
gamercb (Division D) 4 matches
Questar17 (Division D) 4 matches
Schweetness101 (Division D) 4 matches and finished

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 32 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division B - 24 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division C - 28 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division D - 26 out of 45 matches completed :D

These are good match completion rates.

Player of the week
fikabo (Division C) 2 wins this week. :D

Division B

Geffalrus (Poles) defeats youngr (Anglo-Danes and Welsh) 52-26

As the score attests, this was a real beef-slapping competition between packed shield walls. The Polish army anchored itself between two forests with some low hills where the massed archers were stationed behind the shield walls. The Anglo-Danes brought an absolute ton of up-armored spears with some Huscarls, skirmishers, and Brythonic foot in support. The sheer number of armored spears diluted the efficacy of the massed archers who were eventually swarmed to death by any thirsty dane that found a hole in the valiant Polish shieldwall. As the left bent, buckled, and almost gave out, the Polish right wing was able to secure victory. While the Welsh medium foot were able to slowly clear the light archers out of the great forest, doing so left them out of position to prevent the Polish cavalry, hidden behind the forest, from doing a wide ride around the Danish line. This was combined with a spirited assault by the dismounted Polish nobles massed on the right wing to bring the anvil to the hammer.

No victory is without cost, however. The Polish offensive was almost undone by the untimely - and simultaneous - death of the Polish commander and his lieutenant (two generals died near each other in the infantry line during my turn). Another general was auto-broken and wiped from existence. Bad as that luck was, the nearby infantry held their cohesion and the offensive continued (EXTREMELY lucky to pass those two cohesion checks - the heavy infantry +1 bonus made a big difference as nearby cavalry units failed those same checks).

Good game to youngr, my valiant foe in all three divisions this season.

The lines clash a turn before the synchronized death of both my generals.

Division C

fikabo (Polish with Vikings) defeated lydianed (Ghaznavid) 42:5

Very complex map - forest, lake, hill and marsh which give some more power my massed archers and skirmishes.
I was slowly starting to win but elephants were coming which could reverse result.
Fortunately, after shooting down another horse, 2 elephants near got disrupted. This was I think decisive moment of game.

Division D

Lunecastle - Byzantine 988-1041 with Georgian ally beat Challenge1 - Viking (Ireland) 900-1049 AD with Scots ally 66-52

To see a unit of Viking Huscarls take on 2 units of Varangians ,toe to toe, for round after round never getting so much as disrupted until they autobroke with 80 men left
shows the ferocity of this game. Good formation and order was held by both sides, and there was an inspired use of Viking cavalry (defeated 3 byzantine HC).
Thanks for the game Challenge1, All the best Lunecastle.

(3-1)

Division C

fikabo (Polish 966 with Viking ally) beat Herm - (French) 49:8.

The French had better troops, Poles had more of them.
The Poles decided to encircle the opponent and try to fight with more units per one opponent's unit.
The French attack, the forest and a large number of skirmish made this task easier but it was very hard task.
Most of the time I had a slight advantage, only the last two turns French troops fighting with several of mine began dying.
