Match 4

Pydna

rexhurley (Romans) defeats nyczar 52/17 a lot harder fought than the score lines indicate as I had a lot of units and a left flank in tatters but once my elephant went rampaging around in the back and my my right flank cav got into the back of units its fell apart form nyczar.

Thank you for quite a challenging game, quite like nyczar will get his revenge in the mirror as I only have a centre left at this stage

Division B

rexhurley (Numdians) beat Geffalrus (Palmyran) 64/44 An early lead and heroic rolling by Geffalrus put the pressure on, the game then swayed back and forth to the point where we thought we would salvage a draw with 3 turns to play then I finally nailed him

GG Geffalrus

The poll on player army choices is now closed . . . 23-20 in favour of no change

Towards the end of our discussion in the thread (with a poll) about the new allies feature, pantherboy wrote this about the way he used to organise the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (LOEG) back in the days of FOG1 . . .

"Each season players are not allowed to reselect an army list they have chosen in a previous season until they have played 5 different lists with each list originating from a different nation. I wish to encourage variety within the league and broaden players play styles."

I am wondering whether enough players feel that a similar approach is preferable for the FOG2DL? While I have no intention at all of checking back through five seasons to make sure players are choosing different armies, we could have a much simpler rule that says that players must pick an army from a different nation each season in each tournament section that they enter. So that would mean a player having a particular fondness for, say, the Romano-British or Jewish Revolt armies, could only have the chance to play with them in the tournament every second season, and not in consecutive seasons as at present. I have already adjusted the army lists so that no army is available in more than one tournament section so that players cannot use the same army twice in the same season.

There are probably a few anomalous armies such as the Diadochi group that should be specified as one "nation" for the purpose of this rule. Please suggest any other candidates for this designation.

The poll will run for 10 days and you may change your vote at any time.

CLARIFICATION

JUST IN CASE THERE IS ANY CONFUSION - ALL THAT IS BEING PROPOSED IS THAT IF YOU USE AN ARMY IN ONE SEASON THEN YOU CANNOT USE IT AGAIN IN THE NEXT SEASON.

I feel that the priority order of picking (lowest rank to highest within a division) already works to limit the ability of players to ride a single army to victory. The better the army list, the more likely someone else is to pick it ahead of you the higher ranked you are.

I also think players are more likely to pick new armies the more the play and the more bored with one approach they get. Honestly, I just don't see the advantage in not allowing people the freedom to stick with an army they like.

The only reason I play Classical is to take my favorite pike army through a tournament. If that's off the table due to rules (rather than an increase in their popularity), then I'll be less interested in participating in that division. At some point I'll get bored and experiment, but that's not gonna happen for a few seasons.

Agree fully with the above.
