Division C

Breogan (Greeks) defeated Dzon Vejn (Indians) 52-23.

Elephants are tough, but hoplites beat bowmen when they contact them. Anyway, an exciting game!

Re: Poll on army selection rules

Post by klayeckles » Mon Jul 01, 2019 9:12 pm

I think this is on the right track, but is still confusing...we don't want 9 of the same nation necessarily...but i don't know this rule as presented (where it is based on the number or armies in of a nation), really gets at the issue of providing option while limiting the number of "same" armies....there really aren't that many armies to deal with...and the "Nationality" designation is kind of a arbitrary...ie there is the Lysimachid, the Macedonian, and seleucid that are all more similar than some of the other nation lists. So why not just look over the lists and pick some variants without including all. so there are already several Mac-centric nations so we wouldn't need other additional Mac armies; but maybe there are a couple of romans, as they vary significantly from early to late, and an early and a late carthage. and so on.

so rather than saying..."you can pick any roman, but only two will be allowed"... maybe we list two and only two roman armies to be chosen (i bet pete has a very good idea of what is popular, and which are a bit different). This way it is more clear what choices might be available when you choose your army, and there will be automatic variation in the same nation options

so for instance in the classical division

rome 280 AND rome 210 (same nation Very different)
carthage 350 and carthage 218 (heavy chariots vs. hannibal in rome)
Greek 460 and greek 280 (citizen hoplites vs thoraktai)
gaulic 390 and gaulic 100 (chariot based vs cav based)....note this wouldn't be allowed under the strict rules as defined as there are only 3 gaulic armies,
thracian 329 and 279 (hellenistic vs getae based)



something for another day...but if folks are tired of facing the same 5 armies every time, we might consider a themed event titled..."battle of the misfit armies". there are some very interesting armies out there that never get picked (like my hepthalite army i'm using now--and successfully proving horses don't mix with pikes), because they don't do well against the predominant army selections. but imagine battles of pergamene vs. Bithynian Kushan Vs Samite etc...

I take your point, Klay, and along with batesmotel's earlier suggestion I think it could offer some interesting alternatives. I have to say though that I am at about my limit in terms of what I can contribute myself to the FOG2DL. I have no objection if you or Chris want to establish small working groups to flesh out your ideas and then you can present them to me and I will poll them to see if people like the ideas. We could start off with a trial in one section for one season and see how it goes and if there is enough support roll it out further in subsequent seasons. I do feel that the league needs to keep evolving to maintain player interest and recruit new players.

Well, this is what the sections in earlier seasons like "From Maurya to Alaric" and "From Zhou to Chen" were about. A lot of those match-ups were quite obscure. I could put something together along these lines again for the Themed Event in a future season soon.

Div C

Karvon - Achaemenid Persian 419-329 BC drew vs. cromlechi - Carthaginian, Hannibal in Africa 202 BC 34-0 for a score of 2-0.

The short version: Carth divided his force onto two steep hills initially which my horse couldn't reach. He did advance his elephants and some Spanish off which I managed to mostly dispatch with a mix of skirmishers and horse. We chased and fenced in several other sectors but ran out of time before I could regroup enough to try to finish him off.

(2-0)

I suspect if you get people who know some of the armies well, it shouldn't be hard to split them up into buckets or at least into groups like Klay has done. And no reason Pete has to do it. (I probably spent 15 minutes or less on the examples I did in my prior response and I suspect Klay didn't spend hours either. Some, like the Achaemenids are almost no brainers.

The relatively open map was tough for the Ptolemaic as it made the Arab Lancers even more effective.
