A charge across the stream by massed Thracian peltasts disrupted a hoplite unit that was uphill of it (it had previously suffered some casualties but that was a surprise!).
The funny thing about Offensive Spears like Hoplites and such is that their big advantage in infantry combat is in the successive melee rounds, not on impact. Light spear swords are functionally equivalent to hoplites when charging to impact. Subsequent rounds the advantage shifts as Off Spear has +50 POA over most generic swords. The hill slope probably provided......+25 POA on impact to that hoplite, I think? Since that's the most common slope, I think. So definitely that victory was a rare occurrence statistically speaking. The cohesion drop is probably due to the casualties it suffered previously, as I think those can provide a -1 penalty, cancelling out the +1 heavy infantry normally get. Much more likely that the two units would have stuck together and then you would have a flanking opportunity.

Anyway, congrats on the victory.

I have many skirmishes which doing what possible to weaken stronger infantry of enemy in centre and with elephant try to lock enemy cavalry from attempt to encircle my army from my left. On my right the same thing make my 2 horses on small hills. My center was first on 4 square hill so I have some terrain handicap. My left wing win and finish battle just in time because my right part of middle start to collapse.
So was it the JPF or the PFJ that won?

Division D

vakarr (Thracians+Greek allies) defeated rs2excelsior (Romans) 51-13

on perfect Roman terrain - a mountain map with a lake covering one side of the map and a mountain covering the other side, with a bowling green in between. There was a wood and a hill at the Thracian end of the battlefield but the Thracians went in for the attack and destroyed all but two of the non-legionary units. The legionary units were just beginning to make their way through the Thracian infantry when the game ended. The Roman elephant was seen off with some really good shooting and the Roman cavalry suffered similarly before being charged from all directions by light horse. Elsewhere the Thracians advanced across the front of the Roman line or fell back, it was a tough battle to win!
Well played to you--the Thracian infantry did a wide flanking march, forcing my infantry to turn to meet them. Our main battle lines were just meeting perpendicular to our initial deployments. I have to say, I was surprised to see this--I thought my force had some more fight left in them and might be able to turn things around. GG!

EDIT: Do we report the rout % or the casualty % at the end screen? Casualties were 51-13, but rout was 44-17. Not that I think that matters for scoring, but for my own reference.(Answer: Rout% stockwellpete)

A results chart for Early Middle Ages will appear in this space once I know who the replacement for Okie will be in Division D. The charts are set up in alphabetical order so I need to know the full player list before I can enter the data.

I have not heard anything from grumpydaddy845 and Breogan about these two vacancies even though they put their names down on the reserve list recently. I will approach other players today - SLancaster and Garokan for starters - and then I will advertise the vacancies on the forums. If there is anyone interested in taking up these places, either a new player, or a player with a current FOG2DL rating below 3.50, please put your name in this thread.

I have all the scores the wrong way. It's because I use the "old fashioned" way.
I just think it looks better in this kind of charts but maybe I should listen with Pete how he likes it...
