Thanks for the game.
I didn't share the vision of a clear victory for the Romans as my C-and-C was badly mauled by the two opposing units and could have broke in the center of my army reversing most of my initial advantage.

klayeckles (indo-greek+indian allies) defeats elrawen (macedonian 260+greek) 62:49
an epic battle for the historians to ramble about for ages. macedonians were stuck with some very challenging terrain on their side of the field, with a large steep hill flanked by deep forests on both sides. rather than deploy into it, they chose to wait far back by their baggage train. The Indos advanced confidently into the woods and up the hill with a preponderance of MF well suited for the terrain. but the Macedonian general laid a brilliant trap...deploying most of his troops as MF as well...with a large number set in ambush in the woods. They pounced on the Indian troops that stumbled into the woods...and soon the indians were in a deep jam...even sending their bowmen into the thickets. It looked like the macedonians had things in hand, as the outflanking force sent by the indians ran into a phalynx and thracians led by the general himself. the indians looked ready to run. but on the furthest flank the indians managed to drive off the enemy cavalry and in the fading light the indian wing swung all the way back to crash into the macedonians. As darkness fell the the indian bowmen led a final charge into the exposed and weakened flanks of several macedonian cohorts...winning the battle on the final turn. WHEW! a good lesson from an up and coming new player. GG!

Schweetness101 (Andalusian 756-1049 AD) defeats edb1815 (Arab North Africa 1000-1160 AD with Byzantine allies) 44-10

here was the battle around turn 5:

and the end:
https://i.imgur.com/Apjj0Zq.jpg

I went with expensive infantry and cheap cavalry, and edb did about the opposite. His cav on the his left were held up (ZoC'ed) by cheap spears and shot by massed archers, light foot and some light horse, and finished by cheaper light spear cav, and so didn't manage to get through and flank left. In the middle the Andalusian superior spears were mostly able to win against the average muslim spears and skutatoi of the Arab list (except the one Andalusian veteran spear that pushed back and got annihilated on both flanks).

gg to edb1815

harveylh - Andalusian 756-1049AD defeats Nosy_Rat (Khorasanian 821-1003 AD with Abbasid 815-835 AD allies), 60-56.

Tough, tough game. On a fairly open battlefield, both armies deployed more cavalry than foot. The battle surged back and forth with both sides ahead at different points. As usual, Nosy_Rat’s horse archers were deadly but the Andalusian lancers successfully counterattacked. In the end, the game largely came down to five Khorasanian infantry attacking four Andalusian infantry and the Andalusian infantry barely held on. More luck than skill helped the Andalusians at the end. The game ended on the next to last turn and could have easily been a draw or Khorasanian victory. Good game!

Round 3

Morbio (Roman 197-284 AD with Arab 312 BC - 299 AD ally) defeated XLegione (Kingdom of Soissons 461 - 486 AD), 64% - 46%

The Kingdom had the advantage on their left flank and the right was an advantage to the Romans, the centre left was reasonably even, but maybe slightly in favour of the Kingdom's troops because of numerical superiority. The start was a repeat of round 2 for the Romans... Once again good start during the skirmish phase, which was again clawed back and a small lead to Kingdom of Soissons, then the Roman cavalry of the Kingdom right was mostly either beaten or driven from the field and without their threat the Kingdom troops turned the centre-left to their favour and it was soon 40 - 15 and the Kingdom was offering commiserations to the defeated Roman general, defeated providing no units rallied...

... but one auxiliary unit did! The Roman leader stated that this would need to be a legendary comeback. The Romans, who had gained significant superiority on the Kingdom left, managed to wipe out the remaining enemy on that side and begin to regroup to defend the the Kingdom's push to the left. Inspired by the auxiliary rally a cavalry unit rallied, then over successive turns the Sagittarii, then the superior legion, lancers and a the superior legion. Once rallied, their discipline told and they addressed their formations and mostly became steady providing a threat to the Kingdom's left and right. Word must have carried far because light horse returned to help with the battle and soon the battle was level, but the Romans had a better position and superior quality even if outnumbered. The quality told and the Kingdom's troops slowly gave way and as dusk fell the Romans were victorious.

Clearly, prayers to Fortuna, Mars and Mithras were answered and the legendary comeback was delivered. The Kingdom's general was beginning to wonder if the pacifist Christ was really the right god for battle!

My best wishes and sympathy to XLegione who played well and deserved better.

It was an incredible battle, I have never played a battle like this. The quality made the difference and my mate praied a lot the Gods that gave him all the necessary support, probably he rallied 6 units.... that rushed in the woods and had time to rally without any problem ;-)


Anyway, honor to the winner!

See you soon on the battlefield!
