This poll is now closed. I am a bit disappointed that this didn't pass as I really would have liked to freshen things up a bit. It was very close in the end so I may re-poll at some point in the future, maybe towards the end of Season 7.

Btw, I am planning that there will be 12 seasons of the FOG2DL overall. So that is for the whole of 2020 and 2021. After that, we'll have to see as we may have all the DLC's by then and player numbers may start to diminish.
I have been thinking about this issue a bit more. What I have decided is that I am not going to poll this issue again as it is clear that we are split roughly 50/50 on the issue, but I will introduce the restriction on choosing the same army in consecutive seasons from Season 9 onwards. So, for forthcoming seasons 6, 7 and 8 you will still be able to choose the same army as last time, but from Season 9 onwards you will not. Hopefully, this will satisfy both sides in the discussion (or at least irritate them both equally! :lol:)
King Solomon would be proud of you :D Good call!

Good call on still implementing the idea as well as postponing it. I think those who voted against this idea overestimated the effects this will actually have. It's only one of your 4 choices that gets taken away from you, so if you like a particular style of army, you can just pick a similar army instead. I may be a little bias though, since I am yet to get my first choice in the Classical section :lol:

klayeckles(persian) vs pantherboy (indians) 46 to 15.

persians hid in the woods to avoid arrow storms as long as possible, so they were not too damaged before the armies met...so the indian archers melted before the better persian infantry.

Division A

harveylh - Arab City 300-633 AD defeats pantherboy - Indian 320-545 AD, 60-46.

A good and hard-fought game. The Indian elephants supported by bow and artillery smashed the Arab infantry center. The Arab lancers beat the Indian cavalry after a long hard battle and finally arrived in time to rout the Indian artillery and bow in the center.

The Indians occupied a great big steep hill the Dialami occupied a great big wood. Er that is it.
Apart from inconclusive rushing about by LC after 20 moves we all went home.

Division A

harveylh - Arab (Umayyad) 685-750 AD (no allies) draws with pantherboy - Indian (Hindu North) 600-1049 AD (Indian (Rajput) 650-1049 AD allies), 43-35.

As the Arab center keeping their flanks secure approached the Hindu center, the Hindu MI bow and close fighters turned around and marched to rough terrain and woods near the board edge. Unfortunately, the Arab HI could not catch them and the Arab cavalry had not finished winning their flank battle so there was no effective pursuit.

Division B

Geffalrus (Polish and Vikings) NARROWLY defeats youngr (Persians) 63-51. A titanic finish to this season of Early Med for me. Good game all around.

This battle was a map reroll after the first map featured swamps, rough ground, forest, steep slopes, and two armies that wanted nothing to do with all that. Second map was a little better, but the terrain still made things annoying from time to time. After taking several arrow volleys to the face, the Persians backpedaled rather than deal with Viking shieldwalls backed by massed archers on a hill. Eager for a victory, the Polish army followed them into what nearly became a disaster. Unable to breakthrough the surprisingly sturdy Levy Infantry of the Persians, the Vikings came to grief at the tusks of some rather angry war elephants. The Persian cavalry charged through the gaps to reach the archers behind, but not before some heroic Polish archers banded together to flank a pursuing elephant and rout it from the field (?!?!?!?). Despite these mistakes, the Polish army was able rout just slightly more of the Persian army than the Sassanids did in return.

After that bloodbath, it's time for a gorram nap.

Division D

Antiquity D with Bomber23 - Night fell, but I had to leave the battlefield. I think that is a draw and asked Bomber23 to report the result as I wasn't sure about it.

(0-0) This will be corrected in the final tables (stockwellpete)
