“Primus pilus, what news?”
“Hail Caesar! Your legions have wona great victory!”
Caesar casts a baleful eye along the road. Battered and bloodied menlimp toward the city, broken lances used as make-shift crutches.
“Where are the men, Centurion?Where is my centuria?!”
“But great Caesar, we return with 20% ofthe men. Are we not victorious?” the man gurgled as his throat was slit.
If you wanna go with a historical reference, you could at least use Pyrrhus, as in.. Pyrrhic victory - which is an actual term for the above (ironically fighting against the romans, not the other way around).
Anyway, that aside - can you give us a dramatic recount from your own side then? I'd like to see your take on "We won a great victory! All of ours troops were slain and our food supply set ablaze".
Not even playing, so I'm not here to spin and say catching 80% of a hammer can't be good - if it's a very good size, or if it's only done little damage (hit few times), or if you splat several other hammers at the same time.. But if it's only caught after multiple cap hits, or in an OP were several caps were hit succesfully without other splats... Really not so much.
But yeah, don't know the exact situation, just thought it funny that you had to set up a cute little stage play to make it look good, when the exact same situation from the other side would be called a tragedy if it was shown in a theater.
