Podczas Pól Chwały w Niepołomicach odbył się ostatni w tym roku turniej DBA, kończący rozgrywki ligowe. Do walki wystawiłem moich ulubionych Traków.
During Fields of Glory the last DBA tournament this year took place. This time I fielded my favourite Thracians.
First battle agains Fatimids who were defenders. In the open Thracians didn't do well and fatimid archers were effective agains Thracians in difficult terrain. several charges were repulsed. Mainly due to archers' fire loss 4 to 0.
Second battle against persians. Again an unplesant surprise. Persians were choosing terrain. Of course it was really not a Thracian one.
The only solution was a frontal clash of the entire line. After destroying scythed chariot Thracians succeded in breaking Persian line. Despite loss of the light horse on both wings victory 6 to 2. Also persian commander was killed.
Third battle against Alexandrian Macedonian army. This time Thracians were defending. Difficult terrain forced my opponent to split his forces. thracians destroyed enemy light horse, auxilia and psiloi winning 4 to 0.
Next battle against earlyu medieval Polish (12-13th Century). Thracians are defenders.
The most interesting battle fought only on Thracian left. I finally managed to win 4 to 1.
Turniej ukończyłem na 2 miejscu, a ligę na 4. Nie jest źle.
I took 2nd place in this tournament and 4th in the league - not bad.
