Andre has queried game times. As i said earlier start time for both days is 9am. I left it vague after that because i figured if we ended a round early (within 2 hours) then the next round would start earlier.
The tentative schedule is something like this:

Saturday: 9:00 to 11, 11:15 to 1.15, 2 to 4.
Sunday: 9:00 to 11, 11:15 to 1.15, prize giving cleanup and gossip.

It was another great weekend.

Brent, are you going to post the final rankings so Josh and I can strut and fret our hour upon the stage?

no compassion for sniffers it seems...

I came up with a somewhat pleasing kinda mathematical deduction what the problem with averaged dice and grading is.
If your weapons do not give you more than 1 on average (more often 0 than 2) and not more than 1 or 2 for tactical factors (impact/imptous, uphill. flanks) and you have a minimum of 2 for dicing and make that 3 for elite, that is not so good when the damage you inflict is the difference as it does not up the tactical side compared to the dicing which is what I would like to see. The good solution would be to double all weapons factors and twist the tactical factors around. That for me is beyond the scope of an optional rule.
So one needs to not use dices that go higher in factors but rather lower keeping a variation in results that makes the game interesting.
Something like a D3 or D 4, one damage for every difference in result and elite adding one if they win by one or loose by 2 or more. Mediocre the other way around. Like this everybody can still beat everyone else on the dice without giving ridiculous results.

I always thought that dice should alter the outcome of an engagement, because chance did alter historical outcomes. But if dice lead for a win by weapons and tactical factors converted in a rout of the better troop, that is over the top for me, as I see no such results in history. If we split for the convenience of the argument combat outcomes in 5 like outright loss / loosing draw / plain draw / winning draw / outright win, than dice should change this outcome by weapons and tactical situation by 1 or rarely 2 stages, but not more. Because there is a difference between getting lucky/unlucky and divine intervention.....

happy to read any thoughts about this

Tilman,

Were you drunk when you posted these? Because I read them on both threads and neither made much sense.

Discussions on rice etc should continue on the other thread.

Richard,

Can you please post the results of conquest, Brent has buried them in a box somewhere.

Thanks,

Andre

I moved house last weekend.
Never mind the results I'm still looking for my armies.

I am rarely drunk (not even on rice-wine), my English sounds like this when I am sober. ;-)
I guess after some average war movies almost nothing said with a German accent makes much sense
(....this ... is.... impossible!!!...) ;-)
never mind an occasional spill of rice wine on the far end of the world...
CU sometime
