Good game, Chad! Folks can see my own report on the same game here
I just barely met Core, and trading in two 0/3 Salvaged for a Spearmen would've put me under. In hindsight I could've done that trade and swapped a Crossbow unit for more Spears to meet core. On the other hand, I often have found that a wider line is a very good thing defensively. Only the presence of your 3 slingers allowed your line to stretch out wide enough to attack everywhere without fearing pinches. (Also, this game was the first time the Crossbowmen saw action, so I thought it best to err on the side of more.)
Standing and shooting has another hidden drawback, which is that the opponent has some leeway to rearrange his line on the way in. For example, on the far flank I clearly would've rather had Spearmen lined up vs. your Elephants, but had I done so you probably could've switched the places of your Elephants and Libyans. I'm not at all convinced that, barring something like 3 Spears in a row, that you could not have sent Elephants plowing into my Crossowmen while adjacent Spearmen looked on in annoyance.
