So, if one decides to surrender, do you take a screenshot of the battlefield and scores before clicking surrender, and then click surrender? What do we do if we wish to surrender but play out the battle out of curiosity? (Not a man will be left alive on my side if I don't surrender, I fear. However, I would like to let my opponent have the satisfaction too and see how well he can execute.)
No screenshots are necessary. Just hit the surrender button and post "I surrender, well played" in the chat box. That's all I need to say really. If you still have curiosity about a tournament game then don't surrender it. :wink:

Division D

General Shapur - Kingdom of Soissons 461-486 AD defeats uneducated - Jewish 64 BC-6 AD: 46-2

The 2 battle lines met on open ground and in 2 turns a series of catastrophic morale check cascades sealed the fate of the Jews.

This is odd - Deve has had very quick turn around in my current game

Division D

Tresantes (Pyrrhic) defeats SawyerK (Seleucid) 53-27

A good scrap, with some rolls going my way. One of SawyerK’s pike units (veteran, with a general) survived being hit from the front by one pike, in the flank by an elephant, and another pike in the other flank, all at once. It went on to rout two of those attackers before the battle was lost elsewhere...
Thanks for the game!

When the quartemaster tells you he doesn't have any mountain boots, only sandals, you need to tell him where you're going to shove your vine stick if he doesn't immediately reassess his stock position, or...

Or you could find another plan that doesn't involved marching your legionaries up a very steep hill onto rough ground, in the hopes of teaching some amateurish medium foot the basics of modern warfare.

Trouble is, it's such a good plan.

Okay the slopes are steep, okay the top's rough ground, but it's only lightly defended and you are seding a screen of auxiliaries up first. And, once you've taken the lightly defended hill (Pork Chop, anyone?) you'll have the main mass of your opponent's army trapped in the valley. The valley's already sealed off by a legionary blocking force and he's only got endless masses of more amateurish medium foot plus a Hercualean stable full of cavalry. Well... we dont really do cavalry, being Roman. Cavalry's for wusses... I mean equestrians. What did the middle classes ever do for us, eh?

The main sweep up the hill's about as successful as cheap Gallic dinnerware at a Greek wedding, and soon the broken bits are rolling back down the hill backwards. Blocking force has done it's job now, nothing to block for anymore, and so they very sensibly head for the... no not the hills, in the opposite direction, hoping that crappy little local road really does indeed lead to Rome.

Great battle, Rob, thanks for the game, and very well done. A very well deserved victory.


Best Wishes

Mike
