Division D

Schweetness101 - Arab (Abbasid) 874-946 AD defeated Doyley50 - Anglo-Danish 1017-1041 AD: 43-0

Was a matchup of total opposites. The map was a wide open field with very little rough ground, and patches of forest only on the periphery that played no role (except to hide my mandatory 3 infantry units). Knowing the vast superiority of armoured, Anglo-Danish shieldwalls and huscarls in an open field to Arab medium infantry and raw spears, I went with an all cavalry and light foot army. Seeing this Doyley50 sensibly pulled up into a defensive formation with cavalry on the flanks and lights out front, but the handful of Anglo-Danish cavalry and light foot stood no chance against a huge mass of Ghilman and Arab Lancers and archers. That took me to about 20%, and then I pulled up to the corners of the shield wall and picked off a few of the more vulnerable units while ignoring the huscarls for another ~20%, evading away when charged and flanking with lancers and light lancers with impunity. The game was more or less decided at deployment because of the nature of the matchup.

Division A

SnuggleBunnies (Jewish Revolt 66-135) draws with harveylh (Roman 197-284) 5-5

The Rebels feared to come down from a hill topped with some rough ground to face Legionaries and cavalry in the open. The Romans feared to advance up said hill. After half a day ineffectually pelting each other with rocks and pointy sticks, the two armies called it a day.

(0-0)

Division A

SnuggleBunnies (Jewish Revolt 66-135) defeats youngr (Dacian (Carpi) 107-380) 45-11

The Dacians moved their infantry host of Warbands and Falxmen to a great hill to the West, as their cavalry ranged behind the Jewish army. The Jews, with their great mass of skirmishers, moved forward. Some skirmishers supported by Irregular Foot held off or delayed the Dacian cavalry. The rest of the skirmishers overcame their Dacian counterparts. The Dacians, faced with the choice of either huddling behind their shields, or, in the case of the shirtless Falxmen, praying, and getting shot at, or charging, elected to charge. With their greater maneuverability, the Jewish infantry gradually outflanked the Dacian line, and made local flank attacks, to win a victory.

Division D

Schweetness101- Carthaginian (Hannibal in Africa) 202 BC defeated GeneralKostas - Lysimachid 320-281 BC with Thracian (Hellenistic) 350-281 BC ally: 40-13

The Lysimamchid force deployed a powerful array of phalanxes and armoured hoplites on their right, with light troops, medium infantry and cavalry on their left. I had greatly inferior infantry, and so denied any main infantry engagement (the pikes didn't get an opportunity to fight at all) and instead wheeled around with my whole force to the Lysimachid left, where I could make the most of superiority in cavalry and lights to try and get to 40% on those alone.

Division A

harveylh - Kyrenean Greek 630-461 BC with Libyan 549-301 BC ally defeated nyczar - Assyrian 681-609 BC with Egyptian 664-571 BC ally, 62-39

Hilly terrain somewhat channeled the battlefield. The Assyrians concentrated strongly on their right flank and smashed the Greek left flank. Meanwhile, the Greek center and right rapidly redeployed and managed to hold the center and then destroyed the Assyrian left flank. Good game with a lot of maneuvers.

The Dacians are truly an awful army and a big mistake in my choice. It's not big and have very few troop types. It isn't helped by me making mistakes either :roll: I'll be amazed if I don't come bottom of the pile this season.
