Division C

MikeMarchant (Arab Bedouin (300-636 CE)) defeated Bluefin (Hunnic 376-476 AD): 65/28

A great game, as usual, and a result which doesn't really represent the to and fro of the battle.


Best Wishes

Weekly round-up
A very busy week in Division A where 3 wins for nyczar (Scots-Irish) banished any relegation fears for this season. Another defeat for Schweetness101 (Kushan) means he is most likely now to be relegated, particularly as NikiforosFokas (Palmyran) recorded his first win of the season this week. Snugglebunnies (Byzantine) secured a very creditable second place with his seventh win. Only one result in Division B this week but it was a most important one in which desertedfox (Roman) secured a most emphatic win against lydianed (Sassanid) to replace him at the top of the table. Things are still incredibly tight though in a division where there has been an extremely high number of draws. Despite being top, desertedfox has only won 4 of his 8 matches and he can reach 26 points if he wins his last match against Questar17 (Gepid). Questar17 is currently in sixth place, but has 3 matches left and can reach 28 points, while third-placed Nijis (Hepthalite) can only get to 24 points. All the major issues have been decided in Divisions C and D.

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
nyczar (Division A) 3 matches
Snugglebunnies (Division A) 4 matches and finished
XLegione (Division A) 6 matches
Challenge1 (Division B) 3 matches
desertedfox (Division B) 7 matches
MikeMarchant (Division C) 3 matches
Macedonczyk (Division D) 4 matches

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 40 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division B - 41 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division C - 41 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division D - 44 out of 45 matches completed :D

These are very good match completion rates. :D

Player of the week
nyczar (Division A) with 3 wins this week. :D

Division B

Karvon (Parthian 250 BC-225AD with Arab allies) defeated Challenge1 (Hunnic (Western) 376 AD with Germanic Foot Tribes allies) 61-38 for a score of 4-0.

Large areas of woods cluttered up most of the left half of our side. A stream ran across the middle overlooked by gentle ridge on our right side of the field. A long patch of rough ground ran across the stream and up this ridge in about the center of the map.

I opted for a heavy horse archer force, figuring I could have a quantity advantage over the more expensive Hun cavalry. I added in a couple of camels and 3 cataphracts to deal with any lancers. I took a full compliment of light foot to take advantage of the rough of woods for added sniping at more expensive enemy horse. I brought along some irregular foot to help herd enemy horse archers.

I deployed my light foot in the woods and opposite the rough patch in the center. My cavalry horse archers were a long line across the center with the woods on our left. Given the uncertainty of cavalry battles, I didn't really have much of a plan aside from "advance and engage the enemy" with the idea of shooting down or driving off the opposing horse archers.

The Huns also had a fair number of heavy horse archers deployed in the center, supported by a some light horse archers on the flanks and a few lancers held back in reserve.

Given the woods dominating my left, the Huns advanced initially focused on the center and my right. I moved my cavalry up to the ridge line overlooking the stream and moved my light foot up into the rough and along the stream in the center, supported by some horse and my irregulars. The Huns shifted their cavalry to oppose my line on the ridge, but both sides were just out of arrow range. I advanced all along the right and center and poured arrows into the Huns. This led to a brief exchange of fire in which I came out a bit ahead given my superior numbers.

The Huns then regrouped and charged my cavalry line, which evaded. This led to a running skirmish battle on my right as my horse regrouped and concentrated fire to wear the Huns down slowly but surely. Naturally, some of our horse got chased off the map and some were caught while evading, so our own casualties mounted. In the center and left, our foot, supported by some horse and camels, corralled or drove off the opposing horse.

Then, our cataphracts, rumbled into the flanks of the pursuing Huns on the right, crushing some and driving others off the map. With support from our surviving horse archers, they chased the scattered Hun away from the battles still raging in the center.

Just as the last light of day was disappearing, a couple of the last battling Huns in the center were flanked and succumbed, leading to the final collapse of the Hun army.

The final scene...

Division C

MikeMarchant (Arab Bedouin (300-636 CE)) defeated rs2excelsior (Palmyran 258-273AD): 54/16

Really bad luck to a very sporting opponent. rs2excelsior did nothing wrong in this battle, he just suffered from ridiculously savage lancers who just wouldn't stop charging.

It is really scary what a bunch of overzealous horsemen with pointy sticks can to do an orderly line, when they give up a pursuit and decide to charge into the flank and rear of an army.

Division B

Questar17 - Gepid 493-567AD with Germanic/Gothic Foot Tribes allies 260-599AD beats desertedfox - Roman 24BC–196AD Jewish allies 64 BC-6AD 63:53

In a very woody terrain despite of loosing skirmisher stage, my outnumbered cavalry performed brilliantly making a flanking maneover on the frontal legions/ warbands clash.
At the final stage of the battle skilly desertedfox using his fierce legions made a score 47:47. However using a combination of warbands/ lancers i got the victory outflanking his standalone infantry troops and breaking his fragmented cavalry.

Thx for the game to you, i assume very enjoyable battle for both of us

Macedonczyk (Jewish) beats baldrick52 (Pictish) 49:13

I attacked uphill too early. I thought my Zealots couldn't withstand this attack, but a little lucky and I could help the other units with flank attacks.

Weekly round-up
nyczar (Scots-Irish) continued his winning ways in Division A this week to finally finish in fifth place after being in the relegation battle for much of the season. That relegation struggle will now be decided in the match between Schweetness101 (Kushan) and NikiforosFokas (Palmyran). In Division B Questar17 (Gepd) narrowly won the top of the table clash against desertedfox (Roman) to take the top spot. He needs just 1 point in his last match against Nijis (Hepthalite) to win automatic promotion while Nijis needs a 4 pointer to finish on top of what has been a really exciting division. In Division C MikeMarchant (Arab Bedouin) seems to have perfected the art of coming with a late run from mid-table to secure third place. He also managed to do this in Classical Antiquity. Macedonczyk (Jewish) completed an excellent season with his eighth win leaving baldrick52 (Pictish) in the wooden spoon position.

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
XLegione (Division A) 6 matches
Questar17 (Division B) 3 matches
MikeMarchant (Division C) 4 matches and finished
Macedonczyk (Division D) 5 matches and finished

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 42 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division B - 44 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division C - 42 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division D - 45 out of 45 matches completed :D

These are very good match completion rates. :D

Player of the week
MikeMarchant (Division C) with a fourth consecutive win this week to take third place. :D
