Excellent defensive play by Schweetness, coupled with some rather poor rash play by me, contributed to the creation of a new lifeform - the pocupine/elephant. Needless to say, the elephants were not amused.Schweetness101 wrote: ↑Sun Oct 06, 2019 9:33 pmDivision D
Schweetness101 - Arab (Abbasid) 874-946 AD defeated MikeMarchant (Ghaznavid 962-1187 CE - Allies: Turkish): 40-16
The arab army had a favorable starting position on a low but wide plateau that could be defended with masses of cheap spears on the slope and massed archers shooting over. A lake also split the battle in two, with my left flank/mike's right being an infantry and massed archers melee where my veteran dailami foot could close quickly with the massed archers. Most of the battle though was an archer/horse archer ranged exchange over a line of spears. Mike started off very strong, easily scattering my light foot and light horse, but massed archer fire and a few lucky flanks broke some elephants that started a chain rout in my favor.
Here's a screenshot of the end game for the curious:
You can see I had a few units close to breaking and the battle could still have potentially gone either way, but I got a bit lucky and snagged a 26% disparity right as I hit the 40% threshold.
thanks for the game and gg Mike
A really good battle, but in the end I was outplayed. Well done, Mark.
