Division 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

Schweetness101
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.

Great game, Schweetness, really enjoyable.


Best Wishes

Mike

markwatson360's Medians defeated MikeMarchant's Elamites 40 - 15

A good game, closer than the score would suggest. God only knows how many arrows were used, a real shooting match.
A really good battle, but in the end I was outplayed. Well done, Mark.

Please read: First Time Control check, Tuesday October 22nd . . .

Post by stockwellpete » Mon Oct 07, 2019 11:10 am

Most of you know the procedure regarding the two Time Control checks (at 3 and 5 weeks) but we have quite a few new players this season who will not. The first check, at the 3 week stage, is designed to identify non-starters. All players are asked to complete one match in each section they have entered by this date. I am usually fairly flexible, so a player entering three sections who has completed two matches in one section, one match in another, and has started (but not finished) a match in the third section will be OK, whereas someone who has only completed one match in one section and has not started the other two sections may well lose one of those sections to a reserve. It is much better to play evenly across the sections that you have entered rather than concentrate, say, just on Classical Antiquity, or just on Early Middle Ages.

A slight rule change for this season means that players cannot claim a match under the 7 day rule (an opponent not making a move for 7 days without explanation) in the period up to, and including, the first Time Control check.

If you have any problems contacting a player in this first period of the tournament please contact me by PM and I will see if I can get your match started.

Also, it is very helpful to me if you do post your challenges in the "Arrange Your Matches Here" threads, rather than just arranging matches by PM. This is because I can see what is exactly happening in the tournament and who I might need to send a chaser to. Thanks. :D

probably a silly question, but have you definitely got 1.5.18 installed not 1.5.3?

Good fun. I was 28-8 up at one time but for every unit defeated 2 more took its place. Arabs = the ultimate giant wall of crap!

Try playing the Moors or Numidians.
