It is broken. The players riding the luck wave at the moment might not see the problem but as we know the luck wave breaks at some point.

I think it is the translation of PaulMcNeil's cryptic statement.

Indeed so. Great tournament. Thanks to my opponents.

The traditional devoncop place in the middle of Division B in splendid mediocrity has once again been reserved needless to say for next season :D

I wish I could voluntarily be demoted to Division B so I don't have to keep ending up in the bottom third of the table.

I managed to be one off the relegation zone in all 3 Divisions. I'm bad but just not bad enough

Thanks Pete. I ended up in the boondocks due to taking - cough, cough - Spartans in the biblical group. But, still had a good series of games and fount the whole thing really well run.
Look back over the past, with its changing empires that rose and fell, and you can foresee the future, too. M.A.

Outstanding as always Pete! to you and RBS and all the gang....i think my money spend on the FOG series is the cheapest entertainment and most rewarding of anything i've ever done....i don't dare even calculate how many hours i've put into this rewarding experience. there is always something new to be learned, a new army, a new strategy, a new gambit. GREAT FUN!

I agree completely with klay. Kudos to Pete and RBS and Slitherine for my favorite challenging and historical online game. Looking forward to next season.

According to Steam, I am approaching 1200 hours...damn cheap entertainment!

Cheers to all for another great season...and another wooden spoon I think.

Once the timeline expands up to the 11th century a Britain themed event could be interesting. Starting with the Ancient Brits, Romans, Caledonians, Scots-Irish then moving on through Romano Brits, Saxons, Vikings and finally Normans.
Yes, that would definitely work for a Themed Event in the future. :wink:
Pete it appears that the future is here with the Wolves at the Gates DLC! :D

Although I didn't catch the release date, it may be a bit late for season 5.

I am consulting with Anders (hidde) and Ian (ianiow) at the moment about this. The difficulty is that the release date of the new DLC is a secret and we won't know it until it is announced by Slitherine on the forum. Also with the DLC is the option to choose historical allies with your army choices for the first time. There are at least three ways that we can go at this awkward situation (from a timing point of view, I mean), and as soon as I have heard from Anders and Ian I will post again.

We are also going to be trialling the use of larger 1600 pt armies in one of the sections following a poll we did towards the end of last season.

The answer to Cunningcairn's question about the Wolves at the Gate armies is "yes". What we have decided to do is to start the tournament as originally planned on June 1st, except that the start of the Early Middle Ages section may be delayed for a short period depending on the release date of the new DLC. I do not know the release date as it is a secret, so we will just have to wait for the announcement.

What I also plan to do is trial the new "allies" option in the Early Middle Ages this season as well and then run a poll before Season 6 to see if we want to roll it out across the tournament as a whole. In addition, the trial of larger 1600 pt armies (which we have already polled) will take place in the Biblical section in this coming season. We will then run another poll to see how players feel about that issue and whether we want to extend it further in future.

I hope this meets with general approval. The main thing is to get players using the new armies. The use of allies is a secondary consideration but at least we can make a start with a trial in Season 5.
