So...one of my first team battles. It was interesting as my ally was German who understood me very few (I wrote many things - use alt attack with catas, please, deploy closer and so on...nothing. Even sadder was when after wiping most of Parthian out I said "Let´s coordinate and get some shape" - he sent his eles first, in whose wakes catas went to die (with SPEARS)).

Another thing was that before battle I said: No rules - I hate them, but I expect you won´t take some spams or so - Parthian was 10 eles + general+onager+2 catas and rest were cata camels.

Enough ranting though, let´s write something about the battle. I didn´t calculate too much and deployed rather universally - after start of the game, I went into defensive shape (with empty space in my back - I hoped to lure roman cavalry here - succesfully :-)). Luckily, romans didn´t send in the rest of their army in time (which was actually long before Parthian charge) - still I believe we would manage it, but it could be very difficult. Parthian eles went on my spearheads or met them early, my ally played that part really well too.
I was relieved as I feared cata camels in desert (I hoped they would charge my bands).


After that short Parthian episode, it was obvious who will win - although we didn´t coordinate too well with my ally.

Maybe we could sustain fewer losses, but I (and I believe Germanicus too) knew that if we pay standard attention, it will suffice. It did :-)

My view can be limited though, your opinions will be welcome.

Alpha Pack nice game you got 700 kills and lost about 200 men

it seems that you are an aggresive player because you moved faster than your ally or he moved slower but good battle

Lol, I said to my ally to advance, but he didn´t understand me :-)...and I am used to move as fast as possible - when my opponent has less time, he has less time to prepare some fast tactics.
confusedboy sounds like it was very one sided, lots of kills, low losses, the way i like it, well done
