    Yes they were a decider but they weren't 50% of an army. More like 10% though that might even be a bit high:hmmm:. And yes, archers are just a bonus. Damn really I hate archer spams.

    Cavalry were about 10% of an army and that was high?! That one I have never heard of before. The ratio only applies for Roman armies. Look at Hannibal's Carthaginian army. Of approximately 40000 men total, about 7000 were cavalry. 10% probably is one of the lowest for all armies except for those of Rome.

    See you guys in like 10 minutes - don't be late. With this many people, I won't be able to re-organize if there are games are already going on. So, you'll have to catch the next tourney if we've started already.

    Another great tourney Prince! I had unbelievable luck in group phase, but Selifator can beat any luck I guess.
    I must say that I played whole Tourney with Pontus, but well lead Egypt is still too much for me.
    Congrats to Oman, I still cant believe I won that game against you.
    Actually 2nd place in groups fought in finals and 1st for third place. lol
    Cant wait till next one!

    This was a really fun tourney. I didn't do as well as I did in the last one, but never was good against Egyptians, and since I faced two them in the robin rounds, well, just my luck I suppose. But it was great fun, and I hope everyone in who participated agrees with me.

    Thanks everyone, and particularly to Seli who was very honorable and selfless in letting me choose Eygpt in the final. You will choose 1st next time we meet in a tournament Seli.

    Even with restrictions, they still have a desert bonus to deal with and this no doubt helped with the result. I was glad he didnt use his trusty sythians as he had already beaten me twice with them earlier in the day.

    Thanks again to Prince for another well organised tourney.

    I would also like to apologize to my fellow combatants for my early departure. My father had plans that afternoon and I promised him to accompany him, since I assumed the tournament was Swiss Army Style and not Round Robin. I am utterly ashamed at myself and hope to receive your forgiveness. : (

    No worries. Family/School/etc comes first.

    But check out this thread. If you'll notice, almost every tournament for a solid year now has been Round Robin (with few exceptions).
