Please use the following format when reporting your results . . .

Division A

hidde (Romans) beat stockwellpete (Carthaginians) 50-25

It is very helpful to me if we all get used to reporting the results in the same way, so please report the score as 50-25 rather than 25-50. This avoids much confusion when discussing match situations by PM with regards to adjudication or some other issue regarding the rules of the tournament.

Division A

Geffalrus (Macedon) defeated Cunningcairn (Hannibal in Italy) 47-20

While much of the battlefield featured flat, open terrain, both armies were immediately mesmerized by a small, tall hill in the left-center of the map. Both armies sent in their best troops, and a furious struggle ensued on along the slopes. The Macedonians took an early lead when they brought down Hannibal's elephants with a forest of sarissa points and stabbed the Shophet of the Sacred Band to death. The Carthaginians struck back with a furious assault by some Veteran Samnites that disrupted two pike blocks, and an overwhelming force of cavalry on the open right flank that came a hair's breadth from rear charging the engaged veteran pikes. Only a brave rear charge by some horse archers saved the pike line from a dreadful flanking by the mercenary Gallic horse. Unmolested for just long enough, the Macedonians pikes finished their bloody work and broke the majority of Carthaginian infantry line.

Good game to my valiant opponent.

The routing of Hannibal's elephants destabilizes the Punic line on the hill, while a dangerous gap opens on the Macedonian Right.

Division B

Schweetness101 (Carthaginian) defeated oscarius (Seleucid) 41 - 8

The Seleucids were posted up behind a Rough, but not Difficult, stream at deployment, with a force of horse archers and Cataphracts on their right, elite legions and pikes in the middle, and some medium foot and additional cavalry hidden in the woods on the left. The Carthaginians advanced on the river with a force of Scutarii, an elephant, Numidian Cavalry, and Noble Cavalry on the left, Heavy Warband and a reserve elephant in the middle, and Hoplites holding the right wing (held back in echelon), with a small screen of javelinmen to engage enemy skirmishers during the advance.

On their right The Seleucid/Parthian cavalry could not contest a rough terrain river in the face of medium infantry . The horse archers were caught or driven off by the Numidian and Noble Cavalry, and the Cataphracts charged by the elephant, while the Scutarii crossed in a heavily weighted flanking maneuver (6 Scutarii in total), quickly surrounding the pikes on the Seleucid right.

Meanwhile, in the middle the pikes and legions, understanding they were pressed for time (their right flank collapsing), and taunted by a few javelins, pursued over the river and, in a stroke of bad luck, the legions ended up diagonal facing the warband, revealing a flank that was exploited quickly. On the Carthaginian right the Hoplites held out, aided greatly by the fact that the Seleucids were spread out a bit too much at deployment, especially on their left where the units left in ambush in the forest did not arrive until the battle was nearly over. The Seleucid middle may have raced forward to secure the river too fast for their left wing to catch up. Seleucid luck in the middle went from bad to worse, as the legions breaking and the pikes pushing the warband back opened multiple vulnerable flanks, along with disruptions caused by the broken legions. Overall, the Seleucid/Parthian army had had no room to maneuver their cavalry, were caught at disadvantage on a rough river by medium foot, deployed too spread out (many elite units barely participating or not participating at all, including 1 superior legion, 1 superior warband and 1 cataphract) and were simply outnumbered in infantry.

GG to oscarius.

A bloody battle, which toppled with my 'phants timely rallying while two samnite troops broke on same turn. A match which truly could have gone either way! Screenshot of end-situation: https://i.imgur.com/v9E7p6m.jpg

The end score does not do justice for the happenings in game. Several of my romans passed morale checks while they were fragmented, while a couple morale checks for Barrys romans failed in spectacular ways. Thank you for a very intense game, things just escalated real fast on the last couple turns.

Division D

Swuul (Rome) beat grumpydaddy845 (Greek) 60-35


I was ready to throw in the towel when both my flanks collapsed, greek cavalry got to the rear of my center, and the score was around 30-20 in the favour of greeks. I felt like being out of my league, grumpydad simply outplayed me. Then suddenly the greek center collapsed, my cataphracts successfully waded across the deep stream routing some raw hoplites in the process on my right flank, my archers were able to throw back the greek assaulters on the rocky hill on left. When the phants and legionares in center turned around to charge backwards, greeks seemed to self implode before the romans barely had time to get back in contact. I am still staring at the screen with my jaw open :o

Thank you for an educational match, I learned some new ways how to use Irregular infantry! I thought it would be walkover, legions vs irregular infantry, but it wasn't. A few successful rally rolls saw the score swing to roman victory, otherwise it would have still been more than a hard fight.
