Re: ConstantinIX has won Late Antiquity Division A!

Well played! It was a pleasure to lose to you. I agree with the "well done" part....my own ego won't allow me to say it was a pleasure :oops: I definitely learned something too...you used the interchangeability of the lancers to great effect, as well as the 50% bow on your cav. that is an army to b...

Re: dkalenda has been expelled from the tournament for multiple re-loading of turns during his matches . . .

They spanned the whole of June, and were FOG2DL games. Ok thanks. I asked because I had noticed a strange pattern when playing mirrored games against dkalenda: when I logged into multiplayer I would often find one of the pair of games submitted and back to being my turn to move, but the other game ...

Re: Larger armies right across the FOG2 Digital League?

nyczar » 10 Jul 2020 10:28 More list points mitigates the medium infantry swarm risk faced by high quality (heavy) lists due to inferior unit numbers In all likelihood, the player using a " medium infantry swarm " will be very reluctant to agree to a large battle. Hence, the argument for larger bat...

Nevertheless, I had some cold sweat with a mad elephant who ...

Re: The Rally Point (discussion, questions and some highbrow philosophising)

I think it depends on the matchup of both players and factions. I tend to play rather defensively against people who usually beat me; not that it saved me against Nosy_Rat or Ludendorf or pantherboy! But I think I did better than I would have with an offensive strategy. I even went so far as to cam...

Re: Late Antiquity: winners post your results here . . .

Division A klayeckles (persian+arabs) defeats Questar17 (Ostrogothic) 53 to 25 a wide open field and no real answer for the elephants made it tough going for the ostrogoths. as a side note to interested parties...the absolute best antidote to elephants is superior spearmen (not so expensive, don't b...

Re: Advice on cavalry tactics?

Just a quick note on "wide and deep". Yes, the idea is good but I see quite a lot of new players and not so new players just push out their cavalry so wide for elaborate flanking manoeuvres that never get going because the battle is over in the middle.. cavalry gets blocked or just takes too long t...

Re: Advice on cavalry tactics?

one of the most important "tactics" involving cav that many gamers fail to utilize involves Threat. sure cav can manouver...sure they can get a local outflank. but even if you don't have an overwhelming cav force...if you can manouver and KEEP manouvering to get to the rear your cav become much more...

Division A klayeckles (persian+arab) defeats Nosy Rat(Hunnic+) 64 to 53 a great matchup...the lead swapped multiple times, the the persians taking an early lead when the elephants caused an early rout of a warband, but then when the hunnic horse archers struck in earnest then charged causing chaos a...

Division A klayeckles (sassanid + arab bed) defeats Triarii (Arab Bed+ Byzantine) 44 to 0 this is my luckiest outing on record...i was thinking we had a likely draw on our hands, as the arabs, led by a highly capable general were 100% mounted and my persians had some slow weak foot troops. but one w...

Re: Late Antiquity: winners post your results here . . .

Division A

klayeckles (persian w arabs) drew with Snugglebunnies (bosporan w romans) 30-18

A Bloody Draw, a very narrow frontage and a treacherous stream crossing ended the battle at nightfall with neither army being able to force a successful crossing.

Re: Larger armies right across the FOG2 Digital League?

i find the larger battles add more work, but fail to add more strategic thinking...you still only have two flanks, etc. larger battles offer more chance for tactical minutia but no more strategic benefits. so the result is a more ponderous effort that reduces the total number of battles one can proc...

Well the Indo Greeks fell to the onslaught of superior spearmen...it was not a pretty sight. Congrats and very well played. Unfortunately my army just didn't match up well here, and the battlefield was a wreck for me. For those that watched it unfold...just a comment on my tactics. I figured he'd br...

Re: KO Tournament: winners post your results here . . .

As Las Vegas odds makers take a closer look at the match up they'er seeing that the Arabs are the perfect "Indo-killer" army... overpowering Cav, more numerous equivalent HF, better MF, and greater number of skirmishers. And overall numbers are almost equal...the one place Indo usually dominates. On...
