Re: Please sign up for the KO Tournament here . . .

As we are not going to reach the optimum number of 64 players now, I need to ensure that we recruit an even number of players so that I can ensure everyone gets a match when the tournament opens on April 1st. So from now on I am only going to be able to accept new players in pairs. We have 38 playe...

Re: The Discussion thread . . .

It seems very certain now that we are not going to reach the magic number of 64 players this year. The numbers joining are well down from 2018 and are likely to be around 40. What this means is that less than half the players who have entered are likely to get a first round match because there are g...

Re: Poll on trialling the use of larger armies is now closed

Maybe we could vote on which Era we try out the larger armies in? I, for one, am kind of curious to see how a pike army would do with larger settings since unit paucity seems the most extreme for them. I don't think that is really necessary and I would prefer to use the polls sparingly. You can alw...

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

When double drops or general deaths happen to you it is perhaps only human to seek fault in the game design. Not this argument again please. Double drops and general deaths happen to everyone and each players' luck evens out over time. The large trial I did clearly shows that the RNG can favour one...

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

Except that was largely eliminated in the last patch as the vast majority of units are routed before they are pushed back twice now. I think Geffalrus was referring to pikes that push back once. If a pike unit does this then the Roman player can bring up to 2 units from the reserve to attack this s...

Just 3 weeks left to go now!

There are three weeks left in the tournament so players should be thinking about starting their remaining matches this week. Please remember that in the FOG2DL it is expected that players complete all their matches and there may be restrictions imposed in forthcoming seasons on those players who do ...

Re: Poll on trialling the use of larger armies.

This poll is now closed. There is clearly considerable support for the idea of a trial with bigger armies next season. It is certainly far more than the 40% threshold I had in mind when I first set up the poll. Also, 1600 pt armies were clearly preferred to 2000 pt armies so in Season 5, we will tri...

Re: Biblical: winners post your results here . . .

Weekly round-up For the second week running a quiet week all round in the Biblical section. Nothing to report in Division A; the most noticeable event in Division B was 2 wins for Morbio (Thracians) that takes him off the bottom of the table. The situation at the top of this division is that Jagger...

Re: Early Middle Ages: winners post your results here . . .

Weekly round-up Things are moving very slowly in Division A at the moment, but pantherboy (Bretons) is the new leader with 5 straight wins. Triarii (Arab Bedouin), dkalenda (Huns Sabir) and ruskicanuk (Arab City) still have a chance to win this division as there are still many matches to be complet...
