Logfiles and more specifics will be added later, but I wanted to take a moment and salute MichalK for a great performance in the MT61 finals.
The Battle of Silarus was surprisingly won twice by the left command of the Servile army of Spartacus. In the first game, a 6-3 result for the Servile forces, I was able to withstand Michal's Roman ranged assault just long enough for a small opening to form. In a risky maneuver, I was able to hit him with charging warriors (DT) and charging light cavalry (MC) in successive turns, with my rolls and mobility of the latter proving to be just enough to get the banners I needed. Michal was certainly unfortunate with a few rolls to be sure, and the score left me with a seemingly comfortable cushion for the second game.
Even though the 2nd game was a 6-5 win for Michal, he very nearly pulled off the stunning overall victory, and was within a single die roll of overrunning the Roman right (and center) on a couple of occasions. I had settled in for a siege of the Servile position, due to the fact I had few cards that supported a move by the center. Michal picked the perfect time to engage the Roman right, after I had expended too many cards getting troops into position and moving a leader up for support. His combined forces of cavalry and infantry placed two full strength warriors on the verge of collapsing the entire side, and capturing the necessary banner by taking the camp hex, but I was able to just barely withstand the Spartacus-card charge, and then finally collected cards that allowed me to properly respond to the crisis. Michal deservedly won the battle, but I was able to do enough last-ditch damage to win the combined score.
We are both having trouble bringing up the logfile, it looks like neither was saved properly; unsure of why it didn't work for either of us. A shame because they were both very exciting/stressful games that could've gone either way.
