Cheers to a newcomer to the league and our multiplayer madness. Really enjoyed the conversation and I expect others will share that impression as well.

How many turns did you play in three days ? 40-8 is a totally defeat for Mike.
I don't recall, and having tried to check, there doesn't seem to be a way to find out.

I think you can check it. Look at in the completed games in the lobby and press the PLAY button. You will watch the last turn again. So the turn number is at the top right of the screen. Try it.

Yes, that's what I tried to do, but it doesn't report the turn number, it simply tells me it's the enemies turn.

Division D

MikeMarchant - Roman 105-25 BC beat uneducated (Jewish 163-111 BC) - 64/24

A whirlwhind of a scrap where the result really doesn't do uneducated justice.

It was a steady tromping advance by the legionaries in the centre until contact on a broad clear hill. The opening rounds looked bad for the Romans as the Jewish Zealots cut their way through a legioanry unit against the odds and the Roman right flank started to look under threat. On the left flank, the Romans accidentally advaned a cavalry force behind a hill, unseen by the enemy, and swept into the Jewish flank just in time. The pike units on the Roamn flank held out bravely but evetually crumbled at the flanking cavalry, supported by infantry, wrapped round. The Roman right fell to the Zealots and Jewsih cavalry but by then it was too late. On the final turn there was an almost complete collapse of the Jewish army and their general was captured and sent off into exile in a jelly bean grove on Crete, for a sweet retirment.

Great game, undeducated, a pleasure to play with you.


Best Wishes

Mike
That's a nicely written summary!

It was, these close games are great nail biters. Oddly my rubbish units seem to have done the best - when it mattered.

Retreat/Surrender?

Is this permitted? What is the penalty and how is it calculated? What is the procedure for clicking the retreat/surrender button?

When you can clearly see that it is time to leave the battle, should you just keep fighting till the last man? Are these last ditch efforts?
Yes, you are allowed to surrender. There is no penalty for doing this. A player losing a match, but scoring 50% or more can get a losing bonus point, so surrendering early is not always a good idea.
So, if one decides to surrender, do you take a screenshot of the battlefield and scores before clicking surrender, and then click surrender? What do we do if we wish to surrender but play out the battle out of curiosity? (Not a man will be left alive on my side if I don't surrender, I fear. However, I would like to let my opponent have the satisfaction too and see how well he can execute.)

No screenshots are necessary. Just hit the surrender button and post "I surrender, well played" in the chat box. That's all I need to say really. If you still have curiosity about a tournament game then don't surrender it. :wink:

There is a vacancy in Early Middle Ages Division C. I can hold it open for you until the end of tomorrow, Monday June 10th. If I wake up Tuesday morning and you still have not claimed the place, I will offer it to the next player on the list (batesmotel).

Rob123 (Romano British) beat Mike Marchant (Roman) 40-11
When the quartemaster tells you he doesn't have any mountain boots, only sandals, you need to tell him where you're going to shove your vine stick if he doesn't immediately reassess his stock position, or...

Or you could find another plan that doesn't involved marching your legionaries up a very steep hill onto rough ground, in the hopes of teaching some amateurish medium foot the basics of modern warfare.

Trouble is, it's such a good plan.

Okay the slopes are steep, okay the top's rough ground, but it's only lightly defended and you are seding a screen of auxiliaries up first. And, once you've taken the lightly defended hill (Pork Chop, anyone?) you'll have the main mass of your opponent's army trapped in the valley. The valley's already sealed off by a legionary blocking force and he's only got endless masses of more amateurish medium foot plus a Hercualean stable full of cavalry. Well... we dont really do cavalry, being Roman. Cavalry's for wusses... I mean equestrians. What did the middle classes ever do for us, eh?

The main sweep up the hill's about as successful as cheap Gallic dinnerware at a Greek wedding, and soon the broken bits are rolling back down the hill backwards. Blocking force has done it's job now, nothing to block for anymore, and so they very sensibly head for the... no not the hills, in the opposite direction, hoping that crappy little local road really does indeed lead to Rome.

Great battle, Rob, thanks for the game, and very well done. A very well deserved victory.

Banter in the results threads . . .

Post by stockwellpete » Tue Jun 11, 2019 6:14 am

It is perfectly OK to have a bit of banter in the results threads after you have finished a match as long as it is accepted that I will regularly tidy up these threads a couple of times a week (usually after I have posted up the new league tables). So please do not be offended if such posts are eventually removed to "The Dustbin". Battle reports with one screenshot are exempt from removal. The reason for removing posts is so that other players can find the results they are looking for more easily and it makes my job a bit easier when I am compiling results and statistics, :wink:

The hilly rocky desert map with a stream through the middle did the Persian Jumbo's no favours at all.

Thanks to Youngr for a great battle against the odds !

Division B

devoncop (Dailami/Khorasanian allies ) drew with Geffalrus (Polish/Viking Allies) 22% to 40%

Early Dailami success in peppering the Polish line rapidly turned into something else entirely as the Viking Huscarls and Polish Lancers drove unstoppably forward...a general retreat was ordered to save whatever could be saved and the Poles were only a turn or 2 away from total victory but nightfall saved the Dailami and their exhausted horses.....
Here is the moment at which the Polish cavalry turned about and charged the Dailami, while the Viking allied foot flooded out of a nearby forest to add to the general chaos.

Division C: MorkinTheFree - Pyrrhic 280-272 BC drew with Geffalrus - Antigonid 320-301 BC score 55-53.

Great game with many turns, one turn even routed enemy 60+%, but Antigonids rallied to below 50%... Dramatic. I regret there is no replay function, this would surely be the game to keep.

Result reported twice
