10% said "DBA"

I would say Historical Battle DBA over all…

But, Tactica II does a good job with Ancients as well…

Good job!… to both Phil and Arty!

And don't forget 48% said none of these.

These poll results always seem to come out wacky, IMO.

Cherry picked is the term that comes to mind I think

How would any of the respondents even know if any of these rules are historically accurate?

They may have tried to recreate an actual historical battle using the rules. This is done every year at the Society of Ancients Battle day. Here a specific battle is chosen and fought using a number of different rule sets. Last year for Telamon, 12 sets were used. I've always been pleased with Historical DBA.

This year it's the Battle of Bosworth field :)
