Weekly round-up
As expected dkalenda (Palmyran) completed his victorious passage to the Division A championship with his eighth win this week. I think dkalenda is the player to beat at the moment and we do have many fabulous players playing regularly in this tournament. Second place is still up for grabs with Snugglebunnies (Jewish Revolt) currently holding that position with 23 points from his 9 matches. There could still be late challenges from nyczar (Ancient British), klayeckles (Arab City) or Nosy_Rat (Hunnic). At the bottom there is a 3 way struggle to avoid relegation involving youngr (Dacian), harveylh (Roman) and hidde (Parthian). harveylh and hidde have yet to play each other and that could decide the issue. XLegione (Arab City) also secured his eighth win this week to secure automatic promotion from Division B although he did lose his last match to NikiforosFokas (Sassanid). Morbio (Roman) registered 2 wins to move into second place. At the bottom IMC (Roman), General Shapur (Kingdom of Soissons) and sunnyboy (Hunnic) all need points to avoid the drop and fifth-placed devoncop (Moorish) has an anxious wait having finished his matches with just 10 points. Najanaja (Roman) is top of Division C with 4 wins from 6 starts but everyone else in the division seems to be trying to end up with the same number of points! Just to give an example, Breogan (Germanic Foot Tribes) is currently in ninth place but could still win the division. In Division D MikeMarchant (Ancient British) posted another victory to keep himself clear at the top. Challenges can still come from Ulysisgrunt (Kingdom of Soissons) and "D for Dastardly" Barrold713 (Palmyran) who now has 3 wins from 5 starts. At the bottom gamercb (Roman) and GeneralKostas (Frankish) are currently neck and neck for the wooden spoon position.

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
nyczar (Division A) 3 matches
NikiforosFokas (Division B) 3 matches
DzonVejn (Division C) 3 matches
Karvon (Division C) 4 matches
Najanaja (Division C) 3 matches
Bluefin (Division D) 4 matches
Garokan (Division D) 3 matches
MikeMarchant (Division D) 7 matches
Ulysisgrunt (Division D) 3 matches

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 33 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division B - 32 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division C - 29 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division D - 31 out of 45 matches completed :D

These are good match completion rates.

Player of the week
Garokan (Division D) with 2 wins this week, including a 40-0 whitewash!. :D

Weekly round-up
CheAhn (Arab Conquest) is still the leader in Division A and he has set a good target of 29 points from his 9 matches. Two players can overtake him - harveylh (Khorasanian) and Nosy_Rat (Abbasid) who both have 5 wins from 6 matches and are yet to play each other. There is a similar situation in Division B where rbodleyscott (Arab Conquest) has set a target of 30 points from his 9 matches. Again there are 2 players who can still overtake him - melm (Andalucian) and the unbeaten Geffalrus (Polish). fikabo has cruised to the top of Division C after posting his seventh straight win and only sunnyboy (Scots) can now mathematically overtake him. To do this sunnyboy must win his last 4 matches decisively, including a match against fikabo while fikabo must also to markwatson360 (Frankish) without gaining a point. The situation in Division D is unchanged where Questar17 (Pictish) needs to harvest 16 points from his remaining 5 matches to overtake Schweetness101 (Abbasid) whom he defeated in their match together.

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
Nosy_Rat (Division A) 5 matches
Snugglebunnies (Division A) 4 matches and finished
Geffalrus (Division B) 4 matches
melm (Division B) 4 matches
fikabo (Division C) 7 matches
gamercb (Division D) 4 matches
Questar17 (Division D) 4 matches

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 35 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division B - 29 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division C - 35 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division D - 30 out of 45 matches completed :D

These are good match completion rates.

Player of the week
Snugglebunnies (Division A), markwatson360 (Division C) and fikabo (Division C) all with 2 wins this week. :D

Weekly round-up
ianiow (Arab) has returned to the top of Division A this week in his quest to win this championship for the third time in a row. Just to illustrate how close this division has been, ianiow's last match is against bottom-placed nyczar (Assyrian) and should nyczar win it decisively it would still be possible for him to win the league outright if he was to win his last 4 matches. Other players still in with a shout are desertedfox (Egyptian), who has 5 wins from 7 starts, and sunnyboy (Lydian) who has 3 wins from 4. The situation in Division B is clear-cut. markwatson360 (Median) needs to win his last three matches decisively to overtake Ulysisgrunt (Cypriot), who has finished with 30 points. markwatson360's remaining opponents are Barrold713 (Boiotian League), General Shapur (Egyptian) and lunecastle (Assyrian).

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
desertedfox (Division A) 3 matches
ianiow (Division A) 3 matches
markwatson360 (Division B) 4 matches
MikeMarchant (Division B) 4 matches

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 36 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division B - 31 out of 45 matches completed :D

These are very good match completion rates.

Player of the week
ianiow (Division A) and garymann (Division B) both with 2 wins this week. :D

Division D

MikeMarchant (Ancient British 60 BCE-80 CE - Allies: Roman 24-196) defeated gamercb (Roman 313-378 AD): 64/55

This was a totally epic battle that swung back and forth from turn to turn.

It started with a good opening for the Brits as they took on and defeated the Roman lights. Meanwhile a large force of chariots raced wide left, while the main force were deployed failry wide right. The Romans moved to occupy the centre ground and deply on a large hill. The Roman cavarly did a good job of meeting the chariots with a large cavalry force scattering them, destorying them, forcing them from the field and generally preventing them from playing much of a part. When the two infantry forces met on the hill the fighting was brutal, but very slowly started to favour the Brits.

As more Roman infantry arrived, along with elements of cavalry, the Brits started to suffer a major reversal, especially with well-timed flank attacks hitting them hard. Just as the Brits started to fall well behind, the few surviving chariots joined the fray to the Roman rear and warband started to wonder why they'd been running away and turned to make their way back to the sound of the swords. At about the same time Roman cavarly units started to return from distant parts of the field and the fighting ground on and on, with neither side giving up much dirt.

Back and forth the score oscillated, until finally, the Romans started to feel the attrition and a few auto-breaks, allowing a greater concetration of Brits against eh few remainign Romans, along with an heroic last rear charge from the remaining chariot tipped it over the edge.

A really tough, really long, and really bruising battle this one, and for most of that time I felt close to defeat. A very unlucky defeat for Colin, in a battle that could have ended up with either fo us the winner.


Best Wishes

Mike

It was a tough linear and balanced battle. But seeing the superiority of the Palmyran cavalry in my right flank, i planned to lead the game to a marginal defeat and get 1 point with my superior warbands in the left, but i didn't make it. Good game Barrold!!
