Pool I Round-Robin Game
Ascension go for six wights (healing two for pus), three journeymen and one dwarf. Meanwhile, BoT takes six wights as well, but archers rather than journeymen. The match begins, and Ascension nail two BoT wights with a ghol. BoT manage to kill all four Ascension wights, using one wight and a few ghols to do so. Aenima plinks the A army extensively, and Case wights the enemy melee forces. Ascension retaliate with a nice ghol bomb on Malory's warriors, but this isn't enough to stop Blade of Thorns winning decisively with 58% remaining.
Blade of Thorns take three wights, and two dwarves. Ascension take one dwarf, and two wights (both healed for pus). Ascension prepare a ghol bomb for use on their hapless BoT prey...
Meanwhile, both armies set up in a juggernaut configuration in the center. An archer war breaks out, and BoT wins by using a wight. Then the ghol bomb hits, taking out approximately 12 warriors from different players. Ascension charges the bridge, taking a wight hit on the way but still possessing enough force to overcome BoT easily, thanks to the ghol bomb.
BoT seem to be too busy writing taunts on the overhead map during planning time, as although they started in the north, Ascension (SW) was able to beat them to both center flags. Ascension then executed a very close attack on BoT's home flag, and broke through to win.
Match Summary (films)
Blade of Thorns record their first loss of the tournament. By way of explanation, Aenima offers: "I can sum up the strategy too. Canadians lagged out or crashed."
