CheAhn (Roman) deafeats Geffalrus (Byzantine) 46 - 12


Thanks and Cheers
The massive beating I received is sparking some serious research and development in the Byzantine Military Industrial Complex to figure out some new army compositions and tactics. Sadly, I fear this may be too late to save the force sent to confront dkalenda and his murderous Palmyrans........

Question regarding reserve players. Can reserve-players pick their own army, or do they have to continue with whatever army the player they are replacing had selected?

Anyway, please add me as reserve to any group, but I will take part in one (thus I am available for any one of them, but not all, if that makes more sense :) ).

Hello Swuul. Reserve players are able to pick their own army. If a player drops out of a division and has not completed three matches their results are completely expunged from the tournament and the new player starts from scratch. If a player drops out and has completed 3 or more matches then those results stand and any unplayed matches are awarded to their opponents. The Second Time Control check is next Tuesday November 5th and I should know shortly after then if there are going to be any drop outs this season. So be sure to look in next week to see if there is a space for you. If there isn't, Season 7 will start on February 1st, 2020 and I will add you to the invitation list for that tournament. :wink:

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.
Well played Fikabo. As usual it was a shame about the double drops in ridiculous circumstances on my army's part spoiling what would have been a more interesting game.

Division D

Schweetness101 (Carthage, Hannibal in Africa 202 BC) beat cromlechi (Egyptian 405-343 BC): 53-27

Knowing that the Egyptians would vastly outnumber me with defensive spearmen, and have superior ranged capability with the massed archers, I determined to rush forward with my best infantry (veteran Italians, African spears, and heavy warband) behind a light infantry screen in order to engage as quickly as possible. I had a few cavalry for flanks, but no elephants because they would simply be too vulnerable, and not a good matchup against the Egyptian forces.

I formed up the infantry into a column all on my right flank, where the hill that dominated the map was closer to me, best troops in front, with LF screening from MA fire, with the hopes of routing the Egyptian left and center before their long right wing, and reserve of hoplites, could wheel around. I nearly succeeded in that, getting up to almost 30-0 percent rout wise at first. But, when the Egyptian right finally came around, they rapidly routed, through massed archer fire followed with charges and chain routing, my pinning force on the left consisting of scutarii and a veteran African spear unit. This almost closed the gap in a single turn, leaving us at ~39-29.

The battle then became a bit of a slog fest, but a few more flanks on isolated remnants of the Egyptian left, routs of Egyptian early cavalry surrounded by my light foot, rallies of a few scutarrii of mine, and the sheer tenacity of veteran African spears, even when surrounded, finally got me to that >25% gap.

In the picture below:

the top right was the Egyptian starting position, and the bottom left the Carthaginian starting position. The Egyptian left is gone, and their center is engaged all along the ridgeline, both armies having pivoted 90 degrees. The Egyptian right is still intact, has wheeled around, and begun to seize the territory the Carthaginian left and center started on, but too late.

gg to cromlechi

and that's all for me this tournament, good luck everyone! :)

Division C

Bluefin (Kappadokian) defeated MikeMarchant (Seleucid with Jewish Ally) 43-13.

With "O Fortuna" playing as a backdrop, the inspired Team Kappa charged like a pack of wild chihuahuas toward the Seleucid army without worry, overwhelming their opponentswith its large number of medium troops. Taking advantage of some early skirmishes that went it's way (except for that Marsh Man), Team Kappa was able to claim victory.

Thanks for the game -- we always seem to have some pretty good match-ups!
Thanks, Bluefin, it was a great game to add to our catalogue. I think, fearing your vastly superior numbers and all the rough terrain on the field, I was too passive. To try to sit in a defensive formation, relying on 'enclosures' to protect me was probably not the wisest of strategies, unlike your inspiring "Charge!"

Look forward to the next.


Best Wishes

Mike
