Division C

I am delighted to report my first win in this section:

MikeMarchant (Seleucid 124-63 BCE - Allies: Jewish) defeats Karvon (Sarmatian 350 BC-24 AD) : 50/23

The score is not at all representative of the game. This was a tough slog against a predominantly lancer army and the game was won by the 'Battle of the Big Forest' between medium foot from both sides. It ought to have ended in a draw, with the Seleucids unable to push the Sarmatians over the line until the very last turn.

Bad luck Karvon and thanks for the game.


Best Wishes

Mike

Division B

gamercb (Achaemenid Persian 545-481 BC) beat MikeMarchant (Elamite 815-539 BC with Babylonian ally) 67-54

A tense battle with arrows flying everywhere. The Elamites overwhelmed the Persian Infantry, despite the latter being uphill. Numbers told in this area of the battle as the Elamites had twice as many bow units to the Persians and wore them down before charging in. The Persian cavalry and chariots drove off their Elamite opponents from the field before turning to take on the Elamite infantry. Returning Elamite chariots arrived to late to save the day.

A good close battle that looked bad for the Persians as their infantry were massacred. Thank you Mike. Look forward to fighting you again.

Let's put this in the right thread this time.

Division B for Bumbling Barrold

Barrold713 (Boitian League) defeats gamercb (Persians) 40-9

The Boy Band League enjoyed playing with the Persians this time. Not lingering under the clouds of arrows seemed like a good thing to do in this match-up. Thanks for the game!

Div A

Geffalrus (Antigonids) and Triarii (Hannibal in Italy) agree to an honorable draw of 27-36.

Seeing the open land with few hills and little rough terrain ahead of them, the Antigonids experimented with an aggressive approach of mass pikes, max light cav, no foot skirmishers, and thureos and cavalry in support. Worried that the cheeky Hannibal would escape across the river running up one side of the map and force a 0-0 draw, the Antigonid cavalry rushed forward to try and seize the ford. Completely unnecessary as it turned out. The Carthaginian cavalry were all massed on the opposite side of the field from the ford with skirmishers in tow, while the infantry were all hidden behind a far hill and in some woods (some elephants attempted to hide in a small villa, but were actually visible from turn 1). The Antigonids changed plans and vowed to chase down the cavalry and deal with the hidden infantry later. The Antigonid left flank phalanx and cavalry pursued the elusive cavalry, while the right flank phalanx wheeled about to join them.

Then - TRAGEDY. Some wily Numidians snuck around behind the lines and charged a phalanx in the rear. And didn't bounce off. Oh the indignity. Even worse, this happened in range of some advancing Samnite infantry. The rest of the pikes turned around to try and support the exposed phalanx, but it was no use. Unable to kill the Numidians........like at all......the pike unit was flank charged by multiple impact foot units, quickly routing it from the field and disrupting much of the rest of the formation. One pike squared up and tried to escape, but was quickly surrounded. Fortunately, the left flank was successful in catching a large portion of the Carthaginian cavalry and skirmishers, as well as the prospective home-owning elephants.

As such, both armies found themselves over 25 points with not many turns to go. The Anitgonid infantry was completely outnumbered by the Carthaginian foot and unwilling to mount an offensive. Furthermore, most of the Antigonid cavalry was off the field pursuing routed foes. The pikes turtled up, while the thureos retreated to some rough ground. Unable to reach the now VERY cautious Antigonids before night fall, the Carthaginians proposed a truce and a mutual burying of the dead.

Good game Triarii. An excellent contest of maneuver, hide, and seek.

Triarii finishes murdering my pikes, while I trap half his cavalry against the map's edge and gain some measure of vengeance.

Division C

fikabo(Jewish+Romans) beat GeneralShapur (Spanish) 40:3

On the Spanish side there was a large but narrow mountain in the middle. It was large enough to fit all Spanish units. I decided to use the shape of the mountain that hindered maneuvering and attack from the narrow side to have a quantitative advantage. In addition, my skirmishes wounded many Spaniards and forced attacks on them not to be fired there.
Hence, many fights were fought before the mountain, not on it, which made winning even easier.
The troops from the non-attacked side of the mountain began to descend from above and attack my left wing. If they did that at the very beginning I would have a problem. But it was too late.

Thanks for game.

It looks like you are making quick progress.
As I played with you recently I was surprised that you only have 1 point because you played as well as better scoring players in divC (especially at the beginning of the game).

Division B

edb1815 (Rus w Bulgar ally) defeated Nijis (Byzantine) 53% - 26%

Interesting map with a deep stream running between high ground on both sides cutting through the battlefield. The Byzantines came with cavalry and missile superiority including 2 units of Klibinari. After maneuvering and getting shot up on approach the offensive spearmen with huscarls began to tell on the Byzantine line. Combined arms defeated the wing of Byzantine cavalry after a seesaw battle on the flank.

Well played to my opponent.

Division D

Challenge1 (Viking) defeated KiFi (Sassanids) 46-18

A Viking shieldwall managed to hold most of the Sassanid cavalry while the main battle line engaged the hastily arriving infantry. The battle was constantly evolving as more Sassanids arrived, seemingly every turn the outcome was not clear until the very end once the Dailami foot had been routed. A really good game that could have gone either way, despite what the score says.

Thanks for the fight!

Division A

Triarii - Carthaginian (Hannibal in Italy) with Samnite allies - defeats harveylh – Syracusan 280-211 BC with Carthaginian 235-146 BC ally 64-50

On a flat battlefield with yet another river cutting off 1/3 and a significant wood on the Carthaginian left an echelon advance allowed the Carthaginian right to finally flank and then gain the upper-hand over the backward moving Syracusan left - meanwhile the few Carthaginian lights and a couple of supporting Scutari were seen off by the rebel Carthaginian cavalry and large numbers of light troops on the Syracusan right. However a very fortuitous pursuit for one of Hannibal's Scutari put them firmly in the rear of the engaged Syracusan centre at the same time as the Syracusan left collapsed made it all difficult for Syracuse. A master class in shifting Syracusans in orderly withdrawal then followed keeping the points below 60% until the penultimate move. An earlier reinforcement of (unlucky) failure where Syracusan LI attacked the single Scutari unit left in the woods made reaching the 60% just possible. A good (and long) game.

Division A

Triarii - Carthaginian (Hannibal in Italy) with Samnite allies - defeats MorkinTheFree 46-13

A river across the map this time.
Carthage raced to a hill on the left crossing the river and a Pontic phalanx was caught by MI at a disdvantage in the river after a rash follow up of LI. Meanwhile Carthaginian spears and pseudo legionnaires came straight off the hill and matched up with the Pontic MI until LC and MI outflanked and rolled up the Pontic line before the phalanx and warband could force a way through battling LI and/or disentangle themselves from the river.

Weekly round-up
Geffalrus (Antigonid) posted his third draw this week to stay top of Division A, but he now faces a late challenge from MikeC_81 (Roman) who is currently in sixth place and still has 3 matches to play - against harveylh (Syracusan), Triarii (Carthaginian) and Geffalrus himself. Geffalrus will need to win that match against MikeC_81 if MikeC_81 is victorious in his other 2 matches because MikeC_81 will then have more wins than Geffalrus. At the bottom MorkinTheFree (Pontic) is relegated. Very quiet in Division B this week where Ulysisgrunt (Jewish) lost another match meaning that he has to beat phoyle3290 (Hannibal in Italy) by any score to move above Najanaja (Pontic) and avoid relegation. It is still very exciting in Division C where fikabo (Jewish) has stormed to the top of the table with his his seventh straight win from 7 starts. Both edb1815 (Thracian Hellenistic) and batesmotel (Roman) can still overtake him and a lot will depend on the result of the matches between fikabo versus batesmotel and batesmotel versus edb1815. At the bottom Rob123 (Roman) must decisively beat fellow struggler MikeMarchant (Seleucid) in their last match to avoid automatic relegation. Everything has been decided in Division D now after bomber23 (Syracuse) defeated KiFi (Macedonian) in a close match leaving GeneralKostas (Lysimachid) with the wooden spoon this season.

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
Geffalrus (Division A) 8 matches
desertedfox (Division B) 5 matches
batesmotel (Division C) 5 matches
edb1815 (Division C) 6 matches
fikabo (Division C) 7 matches

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 41 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division B - 41 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division C - 36 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division D - 42 out of 45 matches completed :D

These are excellent match completion rates. :D

Player of the week
MikeC_81 (Division A) and fikabo (Division C) both with 2 wins this week giving them a very good chance to win their respective divisions. :D
