I think we are over this little hiccough now so I will move this thread to "The Dustbin" at the end of the day.

Doyley50 (Anglo-Danish 1017-1041) defeated grumpydaddy845 (Viking 780-899) 60-43. Good game thanks, you were unlucky.
Nah, you beat me fair and square. great battle with both sides rolling up the enemies right flank resulting in a new battle line oriented 90 degrees from the first. Lots of fun

I have actually two wins, vs telesien and Spacemonkey76, but the table shows only one win.

Division D

Swuul (Rome) beat grumpydaddy845 (Greek) 60-35


I was ready to throw in the towel when both my flanks collapsed, greek cavalry got to the rear of my center, and the score was around 30-20 in the favour of greeks. I felt like being out of my league, grumpydad simply outplayed me. Then suddenly the greek center collapsed, my cataphracts successfully waded across the deep stream routing some raw hoplites in the process on my right flank, my archers were able to throw back the greek assaulters on the rocky hill on left. When the phants and legionares in center turned around to charge backwards, greeks seemed to self implode before the romans barely had time to get back in contact. I am still staring at the screen with my jaw open :o

Thanks for the compliment, Swuul. The only practice match I played was against the Romans and I was beat handily by the AI, so I felt pretty good holding my own at the half way point. Both of us had played perfectly till that point. Then everything fell apart! One more turn would have allowed me to outflank your center on both sides, but such is the vagarity of war. My center collapsed, allowing you to confront my flanking force while they were wading across water up to their knees! I think I made one mistake by chasing a skirmisher with cavalry that might have made it in time to flank attack your left, but other than that, I have no regrets.

Classical Antiquity Division D, just wow!

Post by stockwellpete » Thu Feb 13, 2020 8:47 am

Division D of Classical Antiquity has already passed its 2nd Time Control check, which is due at the half-way stage (after 5 weeks) of the tournament! 21 of the 45 matches have been completed and Swuul has already finished all his 9 matches! :shock:

Incredible really, as I haven't begun to think about the first Time Control check (at 3 weeks) yet. Well done chaps. :D

the problem is, now we have nothing to do for eight weeks. I'm slowing down starting my remaining games to make make them last.

This was pretty one sided with the Welsh proving to be too brittle to stand against the Viking shield wall.

Their defeat, however, will be will be artfully turned into a saga of bravery and sacrifice in the face of certain and utter defeat that will spur further generations of young Welsh men to throw their lives into the meat grinder of war!

After the league matches are done, we have to set up friendly matches to test out things. I know for sure I need to learn how to counter those darn samnite medium infantries :?

Sounds good. The Samnites are beasts! I was amazed at how much carnage they inflict on the initial charge. I'm still battling it out, but I did find that they eventually mellow out. Bomber23 was absolutely crushing me early (like he tore my arm off and then proceeded to beat me with it!) and now it looks like I'll still lose but not as badly as it once seemed. If we have a friendly match, can I be the Samnites? :)
