Division D for Determined

Barrold713 (Pergamene) defeats phoyle3290 (Carthaginians) 60-58

Down to the wire slugfest with back and forth teetering on the edge of defeat for both sides until the very last.

My hair was dark before this battle...well not really but it was at one time.

Div A

Triarii - Dailami 928-1055 AD (Arab (Syria/Iraq) 1009-1150 AD allies beats GDod - Ghaznavid 962-1187 AD (Turkish allies 600-1036 AD) 65 - 46

GDod - The elephant whisperer - completely trashed the Arab centre with 5 elephants and 3 Generals so intimidating the Dailami that even the veterans disrupted when the elephants so much as looked sideways at them. Despite Gdod's pachyderm success both Ghaznavid wings took to their heels and the Dailami just held it together.
A game very much in the balance until the end. Thanks to GDod.

You won the Division !! Two more points from Ulysisgrunt and you would have come second :-)

Great job ! Well played.

Re: Poll on player army choices restriction

Hi Pete,
I remember LoEG (when my memory does not fail me) and the enforced list change worked fine.
That said I do not think it is in anyway a necessary rule and I agree with Morbio; For those who have played a bit the required new list does not matter and for those who are new it might be off-putting to have to leave the comfort blanket of the familiar - I know some who are new feel happier continuing to learn with what they know.
So as I see it there is a risk of discouraging some newer player entrants, it will require extra administration and potentially/inevitably some carping will arise. Your current system works and your seeding system means a likely second or third choice if a player is seeded high so don't change it.

As a PS
However if the poll is inconclusive/equally split how about applying the rule for those in Divs A and B as long as they remain in Divs A and/or B?
