Division A

harveylh - Arab 1000-313BC defeats Cunningcairn - Thracian 680-461BC with Greek allies 680-551BC, 41-14.

Terrain was a big factor as the battlefield was constrained which mitigated the Arab camels, but one large woods and a smaller woods protected the Arab flanks. Closer game than the score indicates as Thracians were winning the battle of the large woods. Worse than average luck in the woods kept the Thracians from winning that battle till the game was decided in the center. Good game!

Division C

rs2excelsior (Lydian 550-546 BC) beats kerrak (Assyrian 681-609 BC with Arab allies 1000-313BC) 62-42

A hard fought match from start to finish. The Assyrians deployed their main body in between two woods, while the Lydian forces faced them on a low hilltop. I knew I wouldn't be able to take advantage of the position--the Assyrian archers would shoot my hoplites apart rather than assault into a strong position, so my forces pressed forwards. Raw hoplites formed a smaller second line on the flanks, and Phrygian medium foot extended the lines, with a small detachment of cavalry on the left and a larger one on the right. The cavalry met on the flanks first, followed by a general melee all along the line. Arab allies emerged from the trees, which my medium foot responded to. My lancers got the better of the Assyrian cavalry and chariots on the right, and the larger group of medium foot broke through and wheeled in to help the main infantry line, which was struggling to break the Assyrians--it seemed my hoplites couldn't pass a morale check to save their lives. The left flank collapsed, pressed by superior numbers, but the center eventually made a limited breakthrough. Reinforcements from the right flank came to shore up the faltering center, and eventually pushed the Assyrian army over the 60% threshold. It was a hard-fought battle, bought with blood every inch of the way. My hoplites struggled far more than I thought they would, and my medium foot was far more instrumental to the victory than I expected. Them and the Lydian lancers, who absolutely chew through other cavalry in this era.

The battered remnants of the two armies duking it out, perpendicular to the original battle line:

Well played to you, but unfortunately, it was not my own empire which was destroyed today :)

Division A

klayeckles (kyrenean w libyan) vs snugglebunnies (median bab) 52 to 25

open terrain was no place for Mede MF to face off against armoured hoplites...Kyrenean gets a lucky draw on the terrain and a respectable victory. the messengers conveniently forget to mention the lucky draw when they bring home news of the wonderous victory of klay the great...(his advisors know that the time will come when the terrain dice go the other way)

Biblical Division C for Courage

Barrold713 (Urartians) draws with baldrick52 (Kyrenean Greek) 53-51 in a match that went to the full 24 turn time limit.

If this one is to be streamed on Richard's YouTube channel, I am quite keen to see it. What a battle.

Division A

SnuggleBunnies (Medes) defeats desertedfox (Egyptians) 65-46

Squishy squishy Medes squish against squishy squishy Egyptians. Both sides obliterate the enemy's left, and the victorious right wings wheel for a second encounter. Caught out of formation and already weakened by archery, the Egyptian center is given a bloody nose, squishing the Medes to a narrow win.

Division C

edb1815 - Cypriot 680-550BC with Greek ally defeats kerrak - Assyrian 681-609 BC with Arab allies 65%-38%

The Cypriot medium wing defeated the Assyrian medium wing and that turned the battle for the center with the hoplites that was going the Assyrian way whilst the chariots swirled about on the other flank. Thanks for the game.

Division C

edb1815 - Cypriot 680-550BC with Greek ally defeats Garokan - Egyptian 570-525 BC 61%-41%

A close fought battle that became who would reach 60% first. The Egyptian chariot wing decimated the Cypriot mounted wing and turned to the center. At the same time the Egyptian bowmen on the other flank fell back whilst peppered the advanced Cypriot line with arrows. The Cypriots patched together some reserves to hold off the chariots as the medium foot finally hit and started to rout the bowmen. Then it became who would flank the heavy infantry in the center first. A very close battle that could have gone either way. Thanks for the game.

Division Cool

blobka (Corinthian 550-461BC) beat Barrold713 (Urartian 681-585BC with Skythian allies 550-301BC) 66-49

It was going very close but in the end my insane numbers of hoplite compensated well for lesser diversity in type, GG, cheers B! :D

Weekly round-up
harveylh aka "the camel thief" (Arab) is making the early running in Division A with 3 straight wins. The Biblical section is in its fourth season now and so far it has been won 3 times in a row by ianiow (now Syracusan) using the aforesaid Arab army. But it will not happen this season, although the Arab army may prevail again for a fourth time. In fact, ianiow has not recorded a result so far this season and he was last seen wandering about in the desert muttering to himself, "I'm sure that I left those damned camels here". In Division B batesmotel (Kyrenean) has started with 2 straight wins to head the table and pompeytheflatulent (Median) has recovered from an opening defeat to record 2 wins as well. lunecastle (Babylonian) has started strongly in Division C recording 3 straight wins, but it is baldrick52 who is currently top of the table having played 6 games in total. edb1815 (Cypriot) and blobka (Corinthian) both have 2 wins apiece in third and fourth places respectively.

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
harveylh (Division A) 3 matches
lunecastle (Division C) 3 matches

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 7 out of 45 matches completed :|
Division B - 9 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division C - 15 out of 45 matches completed :D

Division A is OK, the other two divisions have good match completion rates. :D

Player of the week
lunecastle (Division C) with 3 straight wins (all four-pointers) since the start of the tournament. :D
