I think more variety is a good thing and it makes more armies viable for league play. A fair number of players opted for no allies.

Group 1

SnuggleBunnies (Syracusan) defeats Barrold713 (Spartan) 55-18

As usual, a far closer game than the score suggests. My left wing was under considerable strain, thanks to Barrold's superiority in skirmishers. In my center, he led a skillful and ferocious assault to take advantage of my backpedaling to avoid the psiloi-infested forest. This had created a salient holding a hill, which he pinched off and destroyed. However, my cavalry wing outnumbered his 2-1, and this proved decisive; as the bloodbath in the center continued, my horsemen, having disposed of his cavalry and ridden down some skirmishers on the way, crashed into his infantry from behind and secured a hard fought victory.

GG.

At the moment you only allow one army per nation to go into each league. With national army composition drastically changing due to allies, maybe it is time to rethink this rule?

Do you think we should increase it to two armies per nation?

Division D

lydianed (Gepids) beat Supervark (Lombards) 52-27

In a match up between two almost identical armies, the Gepids got the rub of the green and were able to see off their kindred. Thanks for a good game.

I would vote for just not identical. But I could live with your suggestion. :)

This time I have treated Viking and Viking (Ireland) as one nation, even though, strictly speaking, they are Danes and Norse. But, on the other hand, I have allowed more than one Arab army per division because these various dynasties were spread out over a large geographical area from North Africa to places like Syria and Iraq. So this slightly awkward situation would be resolved if we allowed two armies per nation in future.

devoncop (Dailami) beat Youngr (Sassanid Persians) 60% to 31%.

The hilly rocky desert map with a stream through the middle did the Persian Jumbo's no favours at all.

Thanks to Youngr for a great battle against the odds !
A very enjoyable game. I'm learning to play the Sassanids the hard way!
