Weekly round-up
harveylh (Jewish Revolt) is currently top of Division A with 3 wins from 4 starts and pantherboy (Bretons) has moved into second place with 2 wins, including one against last season's champion ruskicanuk (Ptolemaics). At the bottom Cunningcairn (Dacians) desperately needs to win his last match against NikiforosFokas (Scots-Irish) to stand any chance of avoiding relegation. Two wins for XLegione (Romano-British) this week moves him up into third pace and currently he looks the best bet to challenge youngr's (Jewish Revolt) supremacy at the top of the table. SpeedyCM (Sarmatians) could also yet make a challenge. Division C is a bit slow at the moment, but greekiraklis (Byzantines) has extended his lead at the top with another victory. jjaquemond (Kingom of Soissons) is in second place, 8 points behind but with 3 games in hand. There were big developments in Division D this week where the runaway leader sunnyboy (Germanic Horse Tribes) has lost his final two matches to post a good, but not insurmountable target of 29 points. Two players can still overhaul that total, MorkinTheFree (Ptolemaics) and lydianed (Kappadokians).

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
XLegione (Division B) 5 matches
MorkinTheFree (Division D) 3 matches

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 15 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division B - 21 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division C - 12 out of 45 matches completed :(
Division D - 27 out of 45 matches completed :D
These are generally very good match completion rates, although Division C is a bit slow.

Player of the week
XLegione (Division B) and MorkinTheFree (Division D), who both won 3 matches this week. :D

Division C

The game ran to the full number of turns leaving Zardoz02 (Lysimachid 320-281 BC) ahead of cromlechi (Seleucids 166-125 BC) at 44-50. More-or-less evenly matched pike armies with the Lysimachid pikes gaining terrain advantage on a hill but still facing difficulties countering the Seleucid cataphracts and elephants.

(2-2)

Weekly round-up
harveylh (Sassanids) moved to the top of Division A this week with his second victory, but his stay there is likely to be short-lived with ruskicanuk (Arab City), Triarii (Arab Bedouin), NikiforosFokas (Romano-British), pantherboy (Bretons) and dkalenda (Huns, Sabir) still all unbeaten. In Division B, a win for rexhurley (Moorish) over DzonVejn (Arab City) has seen these two swap places in the table just behind the leader, youngr (Romano-British). The player most likely to challenge for the top spot though is melm (Sassanids) who remains unbeaten. A storming run of 5 wins in the past week has seen MorkinTheFree (Romano-British) surge to the top of Division C. Geffalrus (Bretons) is his most dangerous pursuer with 2 wins and a draw from 3 starts.

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
harveylh (Division A) 3 matches
melm (Division B) 4 matches
rexhurley (Division B) 4 matches
Geffalrus (Division C) 3 matches
MorkinTheFree (Division C) 6 matches

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 13 out of 45 matches completed :|
Division B - 30 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division C - 21 out of 45 matches completed :D
These are very good match completion rates.

Player of the week
MorkinTheFree (Division D) who posted 5 wins this week. :D

Division D

Geffalrus (Antigonids) defeats blobka (Samnites) 46-7.

Good game to my opponent who bravely charged my pike and elephant line like he had run out of fear and bubble gum. The first impact had me REALLY nervous when his foot were able to mob my reckless CinC and stab him to death. Fortunately the nearby units were Superior and passed two morale checks, stabilizing that part of the line. The double depth Samnite line was then ground down by a combination of angry elephants, grizzled pikes, and lucky dice rolls.

The lines collide........

Weekly round-up
Wins for rbodleyscott (Cypriots) and stockwellpete (Carthaginians) closed the gap a bit on the current leader harveylh (Medians) in Division A. In Division B a sixth straight win for XLegione (Phoenicians) has seen him overtake Cunningcairn (Lydians) at the top of the table. Jagger2002 (Carthaginians) and SpeedyCM (Medians) have both started quite well with 2 wins from 3 starts but it is going to be a tall order to challenge for the top spot. Similarly in Division C, greekiraklis (Egyptians) is in a very commanding position with 6 straight wins. MikeMUC (Achaemenids) has started well with 2 wins from his first 2 matches..

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
XLegione (Division B) 6 matches
greekiraklis (Division C) 6 matches

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 12 out of 45 matches completed :|
Division B - 20 out of 45 matches completed :D
Division C - 19 out of 45 matches completed :D
These are good match completion rates.

sunnyboy remains in pole position in Division D with his sixth straight win, but there is a formidable pack of players pursuing him hoping for a slip up. It includes Geffalrus (Antigonids), General Shapur (Hannibal in Africa) who has now won 5 matches in a row, MorkinTheFree (Pyrrhics) and Karvon (Graeco-Bactrians).
Oh make no mistake, while my efforts to subdue his army in the field met with what most would call "less than success" - I have now moved to phase 2: sending wagons of gold to his Celtiberian nobles to convince them to switch sides. It's only a matter of time Sunny, it's only a matter of time............ :wink:

Division D

Herode_2 - Kingdom of Soissons 461-486 AD defeats lydianed - Kappadokian 260 BC-17 AD : 46/16

The battle started late in the day, as Soissons crossed the map and moved towards the Kappadokians waiting for the attack on a good and wisely choosen defensive position. As Roman soldiers looked reluctant to attack uphill such an army, a few turns of mutual observation ensued, ended by a fierce charge of the Kappadokians. Despite their courage, gods eventually favoured Romans. Thanks to my opponent for the game, good luck & have fun for the next ones !

Hats off to harveylh and Ulysisgrunt!!

Post by stockwellpete » Sun Feb 24, 2019 2:02 pm

harveylh is currently sitting at the top of Division A in all four league sections. I don't think that has ever been done before. :D

And Ulysisgrunt has secured his third win in Classical Antiquity Division A which almost certainly ensures that he will be playing in Division A next season. This is noteworthy because Danny plays mostly in Division C across the FOG2DL, but he did very well in Classical Antiquity Division B last season (runner-up) and now he is doing very well again. For me, things like this bring out the beauty of the league format, where players can win promotion and pit themselves against the very best players. :D

Division B
devoncop (Spanish-Sertorius) beat Bluefin (Visigoth) 49% - 23%

The Visigoth cavalry and warbands ventured into a large forest to try and bring the skulking Spanish to battle and came to grief at the hands of the Scutarii and light javelins of multiple skirmish troops.

Thanks to Bluefin for a hard fought contest.

I have heard back from 6 of the 7 players now and everything is OK with them. They have matches well-advanced in the sections where they have not posted results yet. There is one player who I have not been able to contact and that is NikiforosFokas, who has entered Late Antiquity (0 results in) and Early Middle Ages (1 result in). I know that he is away until 1st March so I will contact him then. He is a regular player in the FOG2DL and I'm fairly certain everything will be OK.
