On Decemebr 29th we hosted a ladder party for the RTW multiplayer ladder. I fought three battles, two of which can be found in this download.
The first battle was me playing as Parthia against Selifator who commanded Carthage. I was able to rout his heavy cavalry, but then I lost my horse archers to his light cavalry. I still had cataphracts left, but they couldn't defeat Selifator's still fresh Sacred Band Infantry.
The second battle was closer. I fought Gaius on the Gallic Countryside. I commanded the Brutii, he took command of the Julii. The battle started out with a cavalry battle on my right, which I lost. Meanwhile I attacked his infantry with my more numerous counterparts and was able to defeat the cavalry on his right flank and started attacking his Urbans in the rear. Gaius however was doing the same to my Urbans on the other side of the battlefield. In the contest for rolling up each others lines as fast as possible he beat me and I lost again, though it was only a close defeat.
