Pool N Round-Robin Game
--V-- decided to go with no archers, and two dwarves + two wights worth of satchel/pus bomb. Very active wight hunting from both sides, however both sides managed to conceal several wights underwater. Malkavian's satchel bomb completely misfired, but Beavis Christ was able to wight a significant number of archers and warriors close to the end. Unfortunately, as the Violators charged the Soldiers of Tyr brought a wight up out of the water right in the middle of their infantry and wounded them severely. Even despite this setback, the Violators' infantry somehow managed to win the battle in the center; this reviewer has no idea how, except possibly that SoT's archers might have used points that could have been used on thrall.
The Violators decided to go for a three-way split of their army. Seeing this, the Soldiers of Tyr formed into a juggernaut in the center and crossed with 9 minutes remaining. However, the V forces displayed excellent coordination to hit the massed SoT warriors from three sides at once with warrior+thrall forces, while the SoT thrall were delayed by a well-placed wight. An excellent display of coordination by the Violators, to romp home with 61% of their army remaining.
A confusing start to this game saw both teams tag four flags, including both (foolishly unguarded) center flags. The game then turned into a footrace, which was won by the Soldiers of Tyr due to the Violators failing to defend the NW flag at all. However, the SoT defense fell soon after to result in both armies tagging all 5 flags.
Match Summary (films)
The Violators operated extremely well as a team in this game; despite a bomb misfire in the first game and an embarrassing lapse of strategy in the last game, they moved and fought almost as one unit. The second game in particular is an excellent demonstration.
