Congratulations dkalenda!

Anyway, Division A

Geffalrus (Byzantines) defeats harveylh (Roman) 62-37. Good game harvey, that was a hell of a match.

This was an absolutely terrible map for the Byzantines with their focus on cavalry and heavy infantry. The Roman spawn zone had a giant mountain in its center, and much of the rest of the map had streams, marshland, and large rough patches. The Byzantine cavalry wept to see it. Lacking more than a couple medium foot units (of low quality), the Byzantines ceded much of the field to the Romans who advanced bravely down from their mountain. With flanking maneuvers largely out of the question, the Byzantines put their hopes and prayers in 4 units of dismounted lancers and the belief that they could resist the Roman legionary foot. Their prayers were answered. The impact phases passed without disaster, and the superior offensive spears went to work stabbing the legionaries to death. Some units of mounted lancers snuck through to charge the supporting ballistae and flank the engaged legions. The auxiliary forces in the rough ground counterattacked against the Comitanesis and Limitanei, while the Roman cavalry moved around the flanks. The Byzantine regular infantry held out just long enough for the un-engaged Byzantine cavalry units to outflank the Roman cavalry and roll up the infantry in the open. The Byzantine commander was extremely lucky that enough Roman units were caught out in the open to reach 60%, as the auxiliaries and archers in the rough ground were basically untouchable.

You can clearly see the battle line outlined by the bodies piled in the open ground between the rough ground.

Division B

oscarius (Thracian) beats IMC (Macedonian) 77 - 52

Successful positioning of elephants proved highly advantageous to my cavalry over his, they then returned to the fray quick enough to allow me to envelop the foe. A good tough game

Division C

Bluefin (Kappadokian) defeated MikeMarchant (Seleucid with Jewish Ally) 43-13.

With "O Fortuna" playing as a backdrop, the inspired Team Kappa charged like a pack of wild chihuahuas toward the Seleucid army without worry, overwhelming their opponentswith its large number of medium troops. Taking advantage of some early skirmishes that went it's way (except for that Marsh Man), Team Kappa was able to claim victory.

Thanks for the game -- we always seem to have some pretty good match-ups!

Division C

Bluefin (Kappadokian) defeated Tresantes (Pyrrhic) 61-55.

Not sure how this came about as Team Kappa spent most of the time expecting those pike and pachyderm to run over it's medium troops. But hope grew as it's cavalry got some big breaks and then held on for the win.

Thanks for the game -- fun battle!

Division D

rs2excelsior (Roman) beat bomber23 (Syracusan) 45-16

The field was fairly open, which favored the Roman legions. A single unit of Thureophoroi posted on rough ground on a hilltop and the Roman cavalry screened the right flank, while the main body crashed into the Syracusan right. Despite the disappointing performance of the detachment of elephants--fragmented almost immediately by arrow fire and routed by light cavalry, no less--the legions went to work, shattering the hoplites opposite them. The Roman right flank was under serious pressure, but the legions wheeled about and began surrounding the Syracusan hoplites and phalanxes in the center. Assaulted in the flanks, a Syracusan general fell while trying to re-form his fragmented phalanx, which caused the entire formation to break, resulting in a general collapse of the Syracusan army.

A screenshot of the final turn of the game, with the legions preparing to continue their assault along the Syracusan line.

Division A

SnuggleBunnies (Anglo-Saxon) defeats NikiforosFokas (Byzantine) 66-33

The Imperial Varangian Guard and Klibanophoroi were unstoppable, inflicting terrible losses on the Saxon shieldwalls even when outflanked. The rest of the Byzantine army, however, couldn't stand up to the storm of spears in close combat, and were surrounded and destroyed.

General Shapur - Arab (Conquest) 629-637 AD defeats IMC - Viking 780-899 AD with Frankish ally 62:53

Another see-sawing battle helped in no small part by some useful rallies and the survival of a few lancer units to pick of viking rallies. I'm not doing so well with these guys, so at the expense of IMC, it was a morale booster for me. GG.

Look back over the past, with its changing empires that rose and fell, and you can foresee the future, too. M.A.
