Division A

youngr (Dacians) defeated harveylh (Romans) 62-38

Much to my amazement the Dacians proved very lucky and resilient in this game whereas the Romans failed to make the major breakthough they deserved. I doubt my poor army choice will achieve much else in this tournament!

Cheers
Richard

Div C

fikabo (Polish 966 with Viking ally) beat Oscarius - (Rus with Viking ally) 45:5

Despite result it was very hard battle. I have strong skirmishes and mass archers which win very effective on my left.
In centre I have smaller number of heavy infantry so I delay mele and at end get help of left wing.
On my right I have smaller number of cavalry but with help of some arches and mass archers I balance it.

PS: This was finished 10 October. I put next day info on forum but diseapear: Either I send it to other forum or not press submit, sorry.

Division C

fikabo (Jewish+Romans) defeated edb1815 (Thracian Hellenistic with Antigonid ally) 49:12

Strange mountain map.
Battle could be only in two narrow gorges.
I have better position because those gorges were wider on my side and I have shorter distance beetwen them so could move units from one side to other.
I have many skirimishes which were quite effective in this map but frequently get trapped trying to evade to not available areas.

Division D

rs2excelsior (Byzantines) beat Bluefin (Alan) 48-21

A map that wasn't particularly suited to the cavalry armies which met there, with the center dominated by a deep stream flanked by hills, the left a river and a marsh, and forests between the deployment area and the bit of open ground on the right flank. With a direct assault across the stream looking suicidal for either side, the Byzantine infantry and a force of Alan lancers spent most of the battle eyeing each other from the opposite hills, while the Byzantine horse archers pressed up the marsh on the left flank backed by a small group of lancers, and the main body of Byzantine heavy cavalry made a sweeping right movement through the forest. Initial clashes took place on the left, where the Alans looked to have the upper hand at first. The Byzantine horsemen took casualties, but the lancers managed to get engaged and that area bogged down into a bloody melee. On the right flank, the main force of Byzantine lancers managed to force a crossing against the Alan horse archers sent to stop them, despite the stream, and after a brief pursuit re-formed to threaten the Alan center. A portion of the Byzantine infantry committed itself to the battle on the left, helping to stabilize the situation there, and eventually Alan resistance on that flank began to falter as well. As Byzantine lancers wheeled to strike the Alan center, the main body of infantry crossed the stream, pinning them between the two forces. With the Byzantines getting ready to mop up the last of the resistance on their left flank and the remaining Alan forces caught between a hammer and an anvil, the nomads took to flight.

Good game, Bluefin, thoroughly enjoyable. If you'd had better luck in that scrap by the river and you might've been the one making this report.

Division B

devoncop (Byzantine 988AD with Georgian Allies) beat Nijis (Byzantine 963AD) ....... 55-28

In a time travelling civil war a tough match was won as a result of successful skirmish and Cavalry actions on the later Byzantine left allowing a partial roll up of the earlier Byzantine line.

A game that could easily have gone the other way.

Thanks to my opponent.

You have Triarii and my scores the wrong way around.
I have all the scores the wrong way. It's because I use the "old fashioned" way.
I just think it looks better in this kind of charts but maybe I should listen with Pete how he likes it...
