Re: Larger armies right across the FOG2 Digital League?

Post by desertedfox » Fri Aug 07, 2020 4:07 pm

Hi Pete, assuming it all goes well nest season with the trial. Istead of then rolling out all periods deafult 1200 pts (if I am reading it correctly) with player option for 1600, why not split it with 2 periods at 1200 default and 2 periods at 1600?

The way you currently have it, and I could be wrong. every player who prefers 1200 pts will play every game at that level, and the 1600 pointers will be ucky if they get 50%.

Am I reading what you are saying incorrectly?

Cheers,

Mark

No, you are not reading it incorrectly. One of the things that I am not sure about at the moment is if players will mix their preferences between 1200 and 1600pts. I think it is likely to be wrong to assume that everyone will choose either just 1200pts or just 1600pts. One possibility is to split the default preferences as you say, 2 sections and the Themed Event at default 1600pts, 2 sections at default 1200pts and that would be in line with the poll. Some people have quite correctly pointed out that the battles in Classical and Late Antiquity were often very large scale whereas those in Early Middle Ages could be smaller. Biblical could switch to 1200pts too. So maybe the smart move for Season 10 would be to split it that way. I am loathe to make too many changes because some people do not read the instructions and will get muddled up, but maybe judicious use of LARGE FONT in the invitation PM will help. :lol:

You crack me up Pete. I was just explaining the technical limitations of the implementation of the PBEM system and you react like I went and shot your dog something. ;)

snooky51 - Ghaznavid 962-1187 AD defeats Tratmot - Andalusian 756-1049 AD with Spanish 718-899 AD allies -- 61-50

After an indecisive skirmish, both armies collided. Ghaznavid center held against veteran arab spears long enough to collapse the Andalusian flanks.

(3-1)

Weekly round-up
There was an eighth win for Nosy_Rat (Indian) in Division A this week and he has finished just 2 points behind the champion Ludendorf (Hannibal in Africa). In Division B a seventh win for XLegione (Roman) means he needs 2 points from his last match against Questar17 (Ptolemaic) to win automatic promotion from Division B. ulysisgrunt (Lysimachid) is relegated after losing to GDod (Seleucid). And in Division D a defeat for ggarynorman (Indo-Greek) in his last match against Bluefin (Syracusan) sees him relegated after finishing level on points with Rob123 (Hannibal in Africa). Rob123 won their match together this season. Divisions C, E and F were completed last week.

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
Nosy_Rat (Division A) 3 and finished
XLegione (Division B) 8 matches

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 45 out of 45 matches completed
Division B - 42 out of 45 matches completed
Division C - 45 out of 45 matches completed
Division D - 45 out of 45 matches completed
Division E - 45 out of 45 matches completed
Division F - 45 out of 45 matches completed

These are excellent match completion rates. :D

Player of the week
GDod (Division B) with 2 wins to avoid finishing in the automatic relegation position.

Weekly round-up
A fifth win of the season for Nosy_Rat (Western Huns) means that he will finish in 3rd place in Division A. In Division B desertedfox (Germanic Foot Tribes) won his last match so cromlechi (Roman) is relegated. IMC (Ancient British) is automatically promoted from Division C after phoyle3290 (Western Huns) lost to GDod (Byzantine) in a crucial match. GDod finished second and phoyle3290 third. At the bottom a narrow defeat for Bluefin (Scots-Irish) against batesmotel (Bosporan) gave him the point he needed to move above Swuul (Germanic Horse Tribes) who is relegated. Nothing much to report from the other divisions this week which are mostly finished apart from the minor placings.

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
Najanaja (Division B) 3 matches and finished
GDod (Division C) 3 matches and finished
General Shapur (Division D) 4 matches and finished
Morat (Division F) 4 matches and finished

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 44 out of 45 matches completed
Division B - 43 out of 45 matches completed
Division C - 45 out of 45 matches completed
Division D - 45 out of 45 matches completed
Division E - 42 out of 45 matches completed
Division F - 45 out of 45 matches completed

These are good match completion rates. :D

Player of the Week: GDod (Division C) with 2 wins this week to finish as runner-up. :D

IMC has won Late Antiquity Division C!

Post by stockwellpete » Sun Aug 09, 2020 8:41 am

In a very closely fought division, IMC and his Ancient British army held off very strong challenges from both GDod and phoyle3290 to win automatic promotion. Well played IMC. :D

Weekly round-up
Division A was completed this week with champion Nosy_Rat (Frankish) finishing unbeaten after defeating third-placed pompeytheflatulent (German). There was another win each for ConstantinIX (Arab Conquest) and Macedonczyk (Byzantine) in Division B where the outcome of their match together will decide who gets the automatic promotion place. In Division C Questar17 (Norman) has moved into second place and just needs a draw against third-placed sunnyboy (Scots) in the last match to secure his position. The relegation battle in Division D is a three-way contest between baldrick52 (Indian), Bluefin (French) and garynorman (Byzantine). What makes it particularly interesting is that they all still have to complete matches against each other! In Division E there were 2 wins for texanotedesco (Khorasanian) to see him finish safely in mid-table. At the bottom Stormcrow (Viking) must win his last match against ninth-placed Supervark (Rus) to have any chance of avoiding the drop. In Division F Nikobeg (Viking Ireland) finished with a big win to tie with random27 (German) in second place.

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
Nosy_Rat (Division A) 9 matches and finished
ConstantinIX (Division B) 8 matches
Macedonczyk (Division B) 7 matches
sunnyboy (Division C) 5 matches

Match completion rate (45 matches in total to be played in each division)
Division A - 45 out of 45 matches completed
Division B - 43 out of 45 matches completed
Division C - 44 out of 45 matches completed
Division D - 42 out of 45 matches completed
Division E - 43 out of 45 matches completed
Division F - 45 out of 45 matches completed

These are very good match completion rates. :D

Player of the Week: texanotedesco (Division E) with 2 wins this week. :D
