Pool A Round-Robin Game
At the start of this game, Ananab Tilps' ghols were able to succesfully hunt all of e.i.'s wights, while e.i. relied on the more traditional thrall-hunting technique and missed several Civil wights. Thus, when they charged at 2 minutes remaining, they were wighted twice. Fortunately for e.i., the Civilians' infantry was scattered and exhibited poor coordination, commiting in several distinct blocks. e.i.'s lesser number of ghols probably also helped contribute to their victory over Civil in the crucial infantry battle, giving them the game.
The Civilians were out for blood, and Stinger's choice of dwarves signalled that he wasn't going to take any prisoners. Civil flanked south with a force consisting entirely of archers and dwarves. Seeing this, e.i. withdrew their north flank and sent a small group of warriors after the archers in the south. These warriors were quickly cut down by Stinger's archers and dwarves, signalling the start of a rout for e.i. as they charged across the bridge into overwhelming force and were slaughtered. Stinger's archer flank proceeded north and helped to eliminate the last defense on e.i.'s home flag, however unfortunately for the Civil order he neglected to leave any defense on the SW flag. This flag was taken during the final seconds by a thrall who had been hiding out in the hills to score e.i.'s only points of the game.
Civil (by some skilled trow maneuvering) were able to tag both center flags, and their flanking forces in the NW and NE were quicker than e.i.'s, to tag both side flags. They then sent one trow to the final (almost undefended) flag for the win, leaving e.i. wondering why the match was already over...
Match Summary (films)
The Civil Order suffered a defeat in the first game due to their fondness for ghols and lack of infantry coordination, but were able to bounce back in the second two games to take home the bacon (metaphorically speaking, of course).
