Weekly round-up
Everything has already been decided in Division A. In Division B we are still waiting to see if sunnyboy (Syracusan) can still take the automatic promotion place from Macedonczyk (Assyrian) by winning all his remaining matches 4-0, including a vital match with Macedonczyk himself. In Division C there were sixth wins for both SpeedyCM (Median) and sarmation (Phokian) and they have finished second and third respectively. This was a very tough division with the top 4 players all registering 6 wins each, something that may not have happened before.

Unbeaten runs of 3 matches or more
Nosy_Rat (Division A) 8 matches
Macedonczyk (Division B) 8 matches
sunnyboy (Division B) 6 matches
sarmation (Division C) 3 matches and finished
SpeedyCM (Division C) 5 matches and finished

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

These are very good match completion rates. :D

Player of the week
sarmation (Division C) who won his sixth match to come third in a very tough division in his first season. :D

Division B

ConstantinIX - Arab Conquest 638-684 AD beat Macedonczyk - Byzantine 963-987 AD with Arab, North Africa 789-999 AD allies 61-57.

A very,very close match which I saw as the final of our division so I kept it for the end. It was not disappointing, as during all the match , we were in less than a 5 percent intervall

We fought on a open map with two small hills (some forest squares on the left one) which were both in my reach at the beginning. I deployed in line in order to deny the use of the hills (on the left and right of the deployement zone) for the enemy skoutatoi
The line approach was a small mistake as my opponent attacked with numeric superiority whith his two klibanophoroi and most of his skoutatoi on my left flank. He used delaying tactics on my right where I have infantry and cavalry superiority. And I wasn't able to transfer units on the left except one more spearman and a camel to counter the flanking maneuver as I didn't kept any other unit in reserve.
Results : my left flanck with half of my almighty veteran muslim spearmen was dislocated piece by piece by flanking attacks and even two medium bowmen units hiding in the forest have to flee shamelessly . In the meantime, I won the battle on the right due to quality and numeric superiority . At middle of the game, I have still most of my cavalry , less than half of my infantry and it was the opposite for the byzantine : More than half of the skoutatoi and few cavalry units (including the two klibanophoroi) . I think I was doomed as cavalry against skoutatoi was a difficult match.
But at the end , my two remaining spearmen disbanded their infantry opponents and I gambled on a disrupted muslim cavalry lancer to whom I transfered my C-C so he could hold long enough against a klibanophoroi to be rescued by a camel and an another cavalry . The lancer hold two turns (with a 50 % loss chance) , camel and cavalry flanked the klibanophori and won the day... Honestly, A draw would have been more appropriate : Thanks for a very balanced game.

(3-1)

Division B

Questar17 - Ptolemaic 166-56 BC beat XLegione (aka Stefano63) - Roman 105-25 BC with Numidian 55-6 BC allies 62:50

Tough battle vs roman legions. XLegione chose his deployment without heavy cavalry, but lots of skirmishers on both flanks didn't allow to my cavalry to do flanking manevours.

gg, thx for the game

A very precise description. I can only add that in the end I made a mistake deciding to go to the back of the enemy through the forest which was cleverly blocked by skirmishes and those forces were missing in the center. Probably the my coolest game in the tournament despite the loss.

nyczar and XLegione have tied for top place in Classical Antiquity Division B!

Post by stockwellpete » Sun Aug 09, 2020 9:59 pm

An astonishing end to the promotion race in Classical Antiquity Division B saw XLegione (Stefano63) beaten in his last match by Questar17, but as he picked up one point for reaching the 50% enemy damage threshold it was enough to bring him level with nyczar on 30 points. The two players had drawn their fixture together 2-2. Well played to both nyczar and XLegione (Stefano63)! :D

The last automatic promotion of the season goes to Macedonczyk and his (so far) unbeaten Assyrians who cannot be caught now after also unbeaten sunnyboy was held to a score draw by paulmcneil. Well played Macedonczyk! :D
