Re: Chaos Tourney V

Regular Division 2 rs2excelsior (Arab (Abbasid) 874-946 AD) beat Kerait (Roman 199-106 BC) 59-28 The Romans literally had an uphill fight. The map was split by a deep stream with a hill on my side of the map. Most of the Romans were able to get across the stream uncontested, but then they faced an a...

Re: Ahistorical allies . . .

Does the midpoint of the ally’s army list need to fall between the given dates (iirc that’s the rule for determining which section an army list which covers two sections goes to), or just have any date within the section’s range? I.e. would a hypothetical 5 BC - 100 AD list be an allowable ally for ...

Re: Chaos Tourney V

Anyone heard from SSB recently? I have an outstanding challenge for them that's a week old and a checking in PM from a few days ago that's still unopened in my outbox.

EDIT: Never mind, the challenge just got picked up.

Re: There Can Be Only One! - New Tournament - Looking For Players!

Yes, they are not "proper" in that each person only plays one of the games. Each team member plays one of the matches, and yes, they are on different maps. Also, welcome!^^ Sounds good! Wanted to make sure there wasn’t a way to set up a mirror match with two different sets of players that I wasn’t ...

Re: Tournament News and Diary . . .

Thanks for another awesome tournament! I was busier this time around so didn't get to play in as many sections, but it was still a lot of fun - and I like the way the variable match sizes worked out in EMA, hopefully that system will see some more use. Looking forward to next time!

Re: There Can Be Only One! - New Tournament - Looking For Players!

Pikes are fun, I'll give it a go!

I do have one question - these won't be proper "mirror" matches, will they, since mirror matches automatically are between the same opponents? i.e. the two pairs will be on different randomly generated maps?
