Bill O'Neal wins his third CCA title vs UK's Peter Eldridge.

Blocks & Blades ...

First to Three ...

The 8th rendition of the CCA tournament continued to use the pod system where we divided into 4-player groups with each player playing the other three players in their group in the same scenario, Cannae. The best record in the group advanced automatically and the best runners-up filled the remaining slots. Side selection was handled by players bidding victory banners. Carthage forged a 39-15 win advantage. In only one pod did Rome manage a split result of 3-3. Every other pod was either 4-2 or 5-1 for Carthage. It appears players have figured this one out, so it will be replaced next year.

The second round formed four more pods. The battle was Caralis from C3i and available on the event page for free. Only the winner of each pod would advance to the semis. Carthage again won overall 15-7. This time, the four pods split the results with Carthage going 3-3, 2-2, 4-2, and 6-0.

The semifinals were conducted as two-game matches, playing both sides of a battle against the same opponent. The battle was Gabiene. In one pairing, two-time champ Bill O'Neal faced the Pei-Killer, Riku Riekkinen; could the famed champion killer do it in another event? Not this time ... Bill won the first game, 7-2 as Antigonus and Riku conceded when Bill scored his third banner in the re-match. In the other battle, 2009 champ, Rick Young, engaged Peter Eldridge. Antigonus was victorious both times with Peter edging Rick 6-5 on banners as Eumene.

The Final battle was Edessa. Bill played the Persians in the first game and won 6-2. Peter conceded defeat when Bill tied the second game 3-3. Bill thus became our first three time champion, having missed laurels only once in eight years.

 Allen Kaplan's painted miniature set makes it almost worth losing, right Mike?
