Pool G Round-Robin Game
The Knights of Camelot set out on their first match with three wights and a dwarf as part of their army, healing two wights for pus. They chose not to use the dwarf's satchels for a ghol bomb, but instead tried to use the dwarf as a standalone unit (not very successful when the flag is in the water). Meanwhile, Cross of Valor had taken only two wights, healing one of them for pus. They hunted down the KoC wight with a thrall, killing it and damaging a few enemy warriors in the process. An early archer war drew KoC into a confrontation they were unprepared for; they were split up and destroyed. An own-goal wight and a late pus attack from KoC maimed the CoV forces severely, but the tone of the melee can be judged from the fact that they still won with 42% remaining after the blast.
Both teams took two wights, KoC also selecting a heavy load of archers. CoV chose to take a lot of ghols instead. The Knights were still handing out units when the game time started...
Cross of Valor split their units into a 50/50 setup center and north. The Knights sent all of their warriors north, where they stared across the river at the CoV force. Both teams got both their wights in, however CoV subsequently chased one KoC wight out and nailed it with a ghol. A large battle started in the middle, with CoV getting a nice wight on the enemy archers. The Knights' thrall were swiftly sandwiched and taken apart, but not before they managed to lead a wight onto the CoV thrall. Soon Cross of Valor owned all but the northwest flag, with the former KoC flank penned up there. CoV coordinated from the northeast and the center, and it was all over. Very nice work by Cross of Valor in this game.
CoV tagged both center flags first, but foolishly let the Knights' trow tag one as well. However, they quickly tagged the NE and NW flags and then trow rushed the south flag to win.
Match Summary (films)
CoV pull out all the stops in this match, showing why they deserve to come out on top in their pool. This match gives them a 3-0 record, and with play like that shown in Game 2, I pity their opponents in the Elimination Brackets.
