I am changing my fourth army choice from Carthaginian 235-146 BC to Carthaginian, Hannibal in Italy.
Thanks.

Re: Early Middle Ages needs one more player to open up a third division

Post by Geffalrus » Thu Jan 24, 2019 2:36 am

If all you need is one more person, I can volunteer as tribute.....*cough*.....I mean cannon fodder. If anyone else joins after me, then I would request that I be moved to the Reserve until enough new players sign up for another division to be formed. And so on and so forth.

Basically, I've really only practiced with Classical armies, so I have no expectation of much success. But it would be a good excuse to branch out.

Armies:
......honestly, I'll play whatever army list doesn't bump someone else's first choice.

PM sent to Geffalrus requesting army choices and a definite commitment to play. I cannot open a third division on this basis. (stockwellpete)

We have received interest from a player regarding the Early Middle Ages section but it is really on an "half-in, half-out" basis. I have sent a PM asking for a definite commitment to play. Until that is received I cannot open a third division in that section. I will review the situation at the end of the day.

I have now added the current player rating score to this division list. For the benefit of new players, the significance of the player rating score is that it determines in which order each player has his army allocated. If we look at Division A, for example, we can see that the lowest rated player is rexhurley with a score of 3.82, so he will be allocated his army first and so will get his first choice army. That army, or the nation it came from, cannot then be used by any other player in that division. We do this to ensure an interesting spread of army selections. The next lowest rated player is Ulysisgrunt and he will get his first choice army only if it has not already been allocated. If it has, then we move to his second choice. And this procedure is repeated through the division until we come to the top rated player who is pantherboy. By this time, nine armies (and nations) have been allocated so pantherboy will probably be allocated his third, or even his fourth army selection.

You can also see in the lists above that a number of players have "n/r" after their name. This means they have no current rating. This is usually because they are a new player, or it may be that they are returning to the competition after a long break. Najanaja and Tiglath are two such players this season.

The player ratings can be found here . . . viewtopic.php?f=501&t=80847

A different player has signed up for Early Middle Ages this evening so now we definitely will have three divisions in this section as well.

Re: Live Draw for the Themed Event will be on Friday 25th January at 10am (UK time)

Post by stockwellpete » Fri Jan 25, 2019 8:06 am

Just a couple of hours to go before I make this draw. I will be sending a group PM to everyone early next week just outlining a few things that need to be done to make the group stages work properly. You will be playing three single matches against the other opponents in your pool. The paired game format will start in the knock-out phase when we get down to the last eight players. I hope everyone has already downloaded the three scenarios required for the first stage of this section - Soissons, Tolbiac and Vouille - if not can you please try and do so over the weekend so that any issues arising can be sorted out before next Friday (February 1st). It should all be very straightforward. Some players will use the Frankish players twice at the group stage, others will only use them once. It will be the two players with the lower ratings (or no ratings) in each group who will play with them twice.
