Salamanca
Gonzo (French) 6 Banners and killed 37 blocks Shaqq 88 5 banners and killed 25 blocks.
Battle developed with much cavalry action on British left with after awhile the French got the worst of it. French put out some damage, but British effectively screened crippled units. French looked in dire shape until last turn withgreat inf rolls against cav and battlefield smoke obscuring British spoiling blow on right. Narrow victory and well played, thanks to Marco

Round 2 Austerlitz
Gonzo (French) 8 banners 18 blocks lost - Mark McG (Allied) 3 banners 35 blocks lost
French assault on right mowed through Austrian militia and had luck in dueling Cav charges and neutralized Austrian Cav who ended up sitting in objective hexes for several turns to prevent earlier French win. Eventually French inf returned but could not get pesky Cossacks to stay out of town. Russian Hvy Cav assault on Right lead to disaster and final banner. Thanks to Mark for a good game. Dice pretty lop sided in this one.

Round 5
Gonzo (French) 6 banners, 24 blocks; Tarheel 3 banners, 24 blocks

Tough fight. Saddled with probe lefts, French had only Right flank card guerillad at onset, but no more guerrilla cards drawn for Spanish. Spanish retreat was followed by French cav charge with mixed results, 1 Sp inf and cav, one fr cav dead. British push on their right chewed up French who could never get 1 hit on the redoubt. French block losses high but traded units. Ended game on good elan roll with inf leader forward and ca attack on exposes Br RL unit. Game ended with last row for French with numerous 1 and two point units and British right closing in.
Thanks for good game in difficult circumstances for Tarheel.

Laon, French Right

Tarheel (Allies) - 8 banners - 10 blocks lost
Charlescab (French) - 2 banners - 30 blocks lost

Initial allied move shifted units into Ardon and advanced cav and infantry towards the hills. French shifted center forces behind hills and took a pot shot with center ART to hit a LT. Allied response was a bold move up hills to attack a LT behind the hills, with a net Prussian retreat. More successful was the Prussian LC attacking the center FR ART with help from a cav forward card unit using combined arms with distant guns. It was an overrun, and the exploiting cav then hit one of the FR LT, with a hit and retreat forced. FR then maneuvered the two left flank cav units towards center to threaten the dangerous LC.

Prussians shifted action, swinging the LC towards the Athies side of the battlefield, of out of reach from Fr cav units. Some brief fire exchanges with little damage near Athies/center was followed by French HC and LC with infantry and artillery support pushing near Athies. Eventually, FR had their other FA unit destroyed and the LC put a FR unit in square. French cav finally arrived, and counterattacked Prussian LN, threatening their squared LN. The GLC however were surprised by prepared Prussian LN (inf first) and were completely destroyed in one volley. The CU met a square. However, the CU were hemmed with no retreat path when the Allied GR unit attacked causing heavy damage. Minor damage on CA.

Prussian advanced now on the other side of Athies with a screening force of Militia lancers. The every present LC shifted behind the FR on Athies flank side and caused heavy damage to one LN, which the miltia lancers then put into square.
Command control looked grim for France at that point. French adjusted a bit causing some damage to Prussians in center. To keep FR in square, the LC (now at 1 block) shifted back to first square, but was destroyed by the CU unit, which met its own fate as it got hemmed in by the allied LN coming out of square and finishing it off.

Finally, the FR Grenadier forces were able to take the town for the 2 banners to finish the battle.

Luck of the dice was totally Allied.

Thanks for the game!

Hi, is 16th of July the true deadline of this tournament?
Because I'm not able to receive answers from my last two opponents.

Please keep playing the matches you can. I'd like to get a definitive result for the Alpha side before declaring.

Charles has now withdrawn for personal reasons, so those matches are forfeit, but probably won't effect the semi-final outcome.

I do think the results are incredibly important. Somebody needs to replace charlescab at Ordal Cross at least, because as you see that is the only scenario that cost me several banners and has put me potentially in a position not to make the semi final. A default allowing full banners to shaq could cost me the opportunity to advance as otherwise I had perfect banner counts. Ordal Cross is he only scenario with significant Allied losses, so giving shaq default win is not consistent with the majority of allied players

It might matter.

I am willing to play substitute. There are probably others that missed the entrée. We should all feel good about this.

The Beta Semifinalists are already determined.

Shaq has 3 matches to play, and the Ordal Cross match may not be required at all if the results of the other 2 matches decide the Semi Final outcome. So let's see how those two matches play out before we grow concerned about that match.

Glory is fleeting, but obscurity is forever.

We are sorry that we are one day late for the game. The frech was heldıng the hılls and defendıng very bravely the shootıng and the Lebreu s attacks on the rıght flank make the allıes lose 3 unıts and loose a lot of strength ın the center wıthout losıng any of the french unıts. At whıch poınt shaq88 decıded to retıre and reform for the next tournament so ıt ıs a 8 -0for the French
