After a fierce battle in classic linear formations the Romans ceded their ground to the Pergamenes whose onslaught was unstoppable due to the presence of dogged units of elephants and pikes.
The final result was 58 to 31, demonstrating the high skill of the Pergamene General.

Well deserved victory NikiforosFokas!

Its going to be super tight. I am not confident.

Just as the Bithynian authorities were in complete chaos (much like their so called miltary) over the prospect of the Bithynians breaking centuries of tradition and actually winning a battle, the military promptly disintegrated so allowing the citizenry to be reassured that the old certainties like the rising of the sun and the incompetence of their Army remained in place.

Congratulations to Mike who deserved the win . Final figures will need to come from him but were inprobably close. ☺

Thanks for your good words, Lysimachos but i am afraid my win was more a matter of luck. I think you played better than me. Anyway thanks for the game.

Pontic vs Bithynian ends in a total bloodbath but the Pontics miraculously hold the field. Final score was 57-60 in favour of the Pontus army.

Great game vs Devoncop though both sides did blunder at times.

Thanks to Aryman for our nice game. For sure the points margin does not show the reality. It was a close battle until his warriors start to push our thyreophoroi. Then it was an easy job for our second line. Thanks again.

After a fierce battle the Romans defeated a fierce Galatian army overwhelming their left flank, where cavalry couldn't stop legionaries and elephants working together.
63% to 37% is the final result, which testifies the toughness of the encounter.

Thank's to Aryaman for the really intense match!

I can handle another game if you can Lysimachos, I believe you are the one to set that one up between the two of us?

Good luck!

Also the Pontic army held off the Barbarian masses of Galatia and won the battle 31 - 58. Good luck to Aryaman in future games!

In an event as predicable as the sun rising in the East the Pergamene forces expertly marshalled crushed an army of juvenile one armed schoolchildren who had somehow aquired Bithynian Army uniforms.

It was universally agreed by onlookers that the schoolchildren's performance in losing 48% to 13% imitated that of the real Bithynian Army in every way...

Congratulations to the Pergamene High Command for a swift and merciful decapitation ! :-)

So my army vs Nik is down to 50% strength. I am in danger of losing and giving him a clean sweep. Pray to Mars for me boys :lol:

Praise Mars! Several lucky rallies for broken infantry regiments combined with some ignominious tactical flight from the Pontic cavalry from Pergamonic Cataphracts and Elephants was enough to secure a small victory. Pontic takes it 46-60.

The fierce Galatians defeated the Seleucid army in a most difficult terrain for both armies 15% vs 51%.

I am afraid the lover of Afrodite has nothing to do with our defeat. It was the masterfully command of the Pontic general blend with some very poor and idiot moves from our general. A well deserved victory Mike. Congratulations.
