Civil war with a big number of veteran spearmans.
I was lucky with the map. There was a big hill on my side that I'm defending. The enemy tried to circle me and I fired at him at the time.

Quarter-final draw preview
We are getting to the sharp end of the competition now with just 8 players left in the tournament (once the Aetius39 v Questar17 match is resolved). The big match in the third round saw a titanic clash won narrowly by harveylh against Nosy_Rat, who was my choice to win the tournament. I think now that harveylh and klayeckles are joint favourites, but we also have these two relatively unknown players who did so well in the FOG2DL last time left in the draw - Macedonczyk and ConstantinIX. Then there are 3 players who have worked their way up through the divisions of the FOG2DL to reach the A divisions namely Morbio, nyczar and Schweetness101. Like harveylh, Schweetness101 is using the very dangerous Andalusian army. And finally we have the 2 outsiders who are still playing. Questar17 has been making steady progress in the FOG2DL but has not reached the A division yet, while Aetius39 is a new player who is doing very well in his first tournament.

Pete, thanks for the interesting analysis. And I agree with you as I also thought Nosy_Rat would win this tourney. Hopefully klayeckles and I will meet in the finals assuming we win our next games and not this round.

Round 3

Questar17 (Pontic 110-85 BC) beats Aetius39 (Ptolemaic 166-56BC) 53:22

Enjoyable clash of hellenic armies on almost plain map, the result was determined by Aetius39's extremely bad dice rolls chain

Thank you for the game and chat

Quarter-Final result

harveylh (Andalusian 756-1049 AD) defeats Morbio (Roman 197-284 AD with Arab 312 BC - 299 AD allies), 49-22

A very constrained map as there was a lake on one flank and rugged hills on the other. This was largely an infantry struggle though, in the end, some Andalusian lancers were the difference. Well played by the Romans and one Arab veteran spear passing multiple morale tests and keeping two Roman legion units in check for several turns was probably the difference.

quarter final result:
klayeckles (indogreek +indian) defeats CONSTANTINIX (Roman+Jewish) 62 to 50

Wow the indogreeks pull off another come from behind victory! The Roman general moved to his right to engage the numerous indian bowman and elephants that were attempting to work to the flank. the indian bowman tried to play a cat and mouse game , but the legions were too manouverable, catching a bowman. the general of the elephants forgot his orders and charged 4 elephants into the roman line to try and save the bowmen, and things decayed quickly for the indians as the bowmen quickly routed sending panic into the nearby elephants. Meanwhile the indian cavalry attempted to dance around the roman flanks, but were unable to find a weakness, and the indo greek phalynx ground up against the crack roman legions. Things were looking dire for the indians; their entire left flank almost gone, the center in a stalemate, and the wide flanking force lost and confused. A rag tag group of indian javelinmen found a gap and marched toward the roman rear, only to be surprised by jewish forces lying in wait in the woods to the roman rear. The romans were nearing victory, if they could crack the steady phalynx and one remaining elephant. but some of the less experienced romans broke against the elephant, allowing it to rampage into the roman rear. in quick succession the tiring romans, depleted fighting the indian horde, broke as more indian troops poured into the hole. In minutes it went from a glorious victory to a potential catastrophe. the remaining roman legions, pride of rome closed the gaps, called for the distant jewish troops and roman cavalry fending off the indian cavalry. but it arrived too late. the indians managed to find an open flank, exposing their own flanks in order to land a final blow.

Extremely well played by CONSTANTINIX...A pity his exceptional efforts were not rewarded--except for his name being put into the annuls of history!
