Weekly round-up
desertedfox (Egyptian) has moved to the top of Division A after posting 2 wins this week and now leads Snugglebunnies by 1 point. However, the group of three players behind him look more likely to challenge for the top spot. ianiow (Arab) got his faltering campaign to win this section for the third time in a row back on track with a closely fought win over previously unbeaten fifth-placed sunnyboy (Lydian). harveylh (Kyrenean Greek) is currently fourth with 4 with 4 wins from 5 starts. The third 30 point target set this week is in Division B where Ulysisgrunt (Cypriot) has finished his matches with an excellent 8 wins. It is still possible for markwatson360 (Median) and General Shapur (Egyptian) to beat this score but they will need perfect performances in all their remaining matches.

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
desertedfox (Division A) 3 matches
markwatson360 (Division B) 3 matches
MikeMarchant (Division B) 3 matches
Ulysisgrunt (Division B) 5 matches and unfinished

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 30 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division B - 25 out of 45 matches completed :D

These are very good match completion rates.

Player of the week
Ulysisgrunt (Division B) with 3 wins this week. :D

Re: Second Time Control check . . .

Post by stockwellpete » Sun Nov 10, 2019 12:53 pm

I have completed the Second Time Control check now and everyone has the green light to continue. There are a few players who have only registered two results in a division but I am satisfied that these are still playing and have enough matches in progress to ensure that they will finish all their matches by December 15th. Some of the players still on 2 matches have exemptions because they joined the tournament as reserves well after the starting date.

Thanks to all the players who replied to my Time Control check PM with all the details of their matches in progress. :D

Division B

Nijis (Byzantine 493-550 AD) defeats devoncop (Moorish), 4-0.

After the initial skirmishing, the Moors decided that their skirmishers did not have the means to defeat a force based around armored horse archers, and scattered. (Concession.) The Byzantines were glad not to have to face the javelin swarms. They erected a monument to their victory and departed, leaving the arid hills to the tribesmen.

Division B

Geffalrus (Poles) defeats youngr (Anglo-Danes and Welsh) 52-26

As the score attests, this was a real beef-slapping competition between packed shield walls. The Polish army anchored itself between two forests with some low hills where the massed archers were stationed behind the shield walls. The Anglo-Danes brought an absolute ton of up-armored spears with some Huscarls, skirmishers, and Brythonic foot in support. The sheer number of armored spears diluted the efficacy of the massed archers who were eventually swarmed to death by any thirsty dane that found a hole in the valiant Polish shieldwall. As the left bent, buckled, and almost gave out, the Polish right wing was able to secure victory. While the Welsh medium foot were able to slowly clear the light archers out of the great forest, doing so left them out of position to prevent the Polish cavalry, hidden behind the forest, from doing a wide ride around the Danish line. This was combined with a spirited assault by the dismounted Polish nobles massed on the right wing to bring the anvil to the hammer.

No victory is without cost, however. The Polish offensive was almost undone by the untimely - and simultaneous - death of the Polish commander and his lieutenant (two generals died near each other in the infantry line during my turn). Another general was auto-broken and wiped from existence. Bad as that luck was, the nearby infantry held their cohesion and the offensive continued (EXTREMELY lucky to pass those two cohesion checks - the heavy infantry +1 bonus made a big difference as nearby cavalry units failed those same checks).

Good game to youngr, my valiant foe in all three divisions this season.

The lines clash a turn before the synchronized death of both my generals.

Div D

cromlechi - Egyptian 405-343 BC defeats SLancaster - Indo-Greek 175 BC-10 AD with Indian 500 BC- 319 AD allies 60 -49

Very close game. The Indo Greek Elephants soaked up a lot of Egyptian arrows at the start of the game and the Pike Phalanx became isolated in the centre and were forced to form squares for a period of the battle. Egyptian numbers just edged it in the end.

Div C

General Shapur - Spanish 300-10 BC defeats DzonVejn - Saka 300 BC-50 AD with Seleucid 166- 125 BC ally 61:47

Hard to chase the horse army down with foot troops, mid-game it turned into a brawl where the dice decided the outcome more than strategy.

Division C

fikabo (Polish with Vikings) defeated lydianed (Ghaznavid) 42:5

Very complex map - forest, lake, hill and marsh which give some more power my massed archers and skirmishes.
I was slowly starting to win but elephants were coming which could reverse result.
Fortunately, after shooting down another horse, 2 elephants near got disrupted. This was I think decisive moment of game.

Division C

General Shapur - Spanish 300-10 BC defeats MikeMarchant - Seleucid 124-63 BC with Jewish ally 61:54

Something that didn't look like it was going anywhere turned into a massive brawl.

The Spanish fearing the Seleucid pikes set up in rough ground split about 50/50 on both sides of the field. The enemy were not going to fall for so obvious a ruse, however, and bypassed the Spanish for some nearby high ground. Seeing this happening the Spanish rushed in from safety while the pike squares were scattered across the hills managing to single out a few that broke easily when flanked and then attacking themselves from the high ground. Well, you had to be there. Great game.

(3-1)
