The Uberquiesenberg Invitational Total War event was a Medieval II: Total War e-sporting event held in Uberquiesenberg, on the 11 January 2018, and played between Alejandro Whyatt, Minister for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs in Abelden, unofficially on behalf of the same nation, and Newton von Uberquie, Palatine-Viceroy of Uberquiesenberg. Alejandro Whyatt won 2-0 in the event, after winning the 10,000 Florin and 20,000 Florin battles decisively.

The Invitational Event was the first of it's kind in both Abelden and Uberquiesenberg, though both players had played unofficial friendly matches with various winners on several occasions. The event was intended to serve as a precusor to the implementation of a leaguing Guild system in Abelden, as a way to test rules and the capabilities of the games under professional circumstances.

Rules

The event was fought using the standard Medieval II vanilla. Both competetors had to chose a faction which they would stick to for the remainder of the event, Whyatt chosing England, notable for it's strong longbows and a vareity of infantry, and von Uberquie taking France, for it's heavy cavalry and relatively good infantry. Both games were fought using the Last Man Standing gamemode, with no time limit, and a maximum of 6 Cavalry units and 8 Missile units under huge unit sizes. During the first game, the competetors were limited to 10,000 florins (the ingame currency) to buy their units and upgrades, whereas the second game was limited to 20,000 florins. A third game would have had a limit of 50,000 florins though, due to Whyatt's victory after the second game, a third game was not fought. All games were fought on the equal Grassy Plain map, which has no characteristics that favour either side.

The opening game was a decisive Whyatt victory. Whyatt opted for a reserved strategy, with thin lines and eventually split into two flanks - heavy archers staying on his left flank, while his cavalry was moved to the right flank to attempt an encirclement. von Uberquie maintained a stable force, and used Mounted Archers to whittle down and skirmish against Whyatt's right flank, gaining a small lead using the Culverin cannon. Later, after a long stalemate, Newton initiated an attack on his right flank but came up short against the heaby contingent of English longbowmen. Whyatt used this opportunity to strike with both flanks and eventually routed von Uberquie conclusively.
