Game 1
Greg O (Persian) 5
Baloo (Greek) 3

The Greeks pushed first on the right and then in the center, with battlelines forming in the river against the Persians on the opposite bank. Persians killed a MH, but took some serious losses and several 2 block light units fell back and the Greeks surged across the river and the Persians counter attacked with their Mediums and secured a victory in the end with a bow on the right flank.

Greg O (Greek) 4
Baloo (Persian) 5

The Persian's first play was a Darken the Sky with 6 units causing 6 hits against the MH in the center and pushed back the MH5 on the left, not a good start for the Greeks, who bravely moved forward into the river and lost two units and a leader before finally gaining some traction on the left and the center, gaining 4 banners before the Persians ended the battle.

Game 1
Tomek (Persia) 5
Max_Bogatov (Greece) 2

That was long battle with a lot of missile exchange and outmaneuvering until in a desperate defensing effort (Clash of Shields) Mardonius managed to annihilate the entire Spartan mora. The Athenians had been significantly depleted by then and got bogged down in the shallow river.

Game 2
Tomek (Greece) 5
Max_Bogatov (Persia) 3

The Greeks won finally at a terrible price. The well played defense by my opponent all along the creek made the crossing a torment. When finally I managed to establish a beachhead I literally had no army to push further. Luckily we don't count the losses.

Game 2

Gonzo (Greek) 3 banners
Viridovilas (Persian) 5 banners

The battle was similar to the first one: the Persian sitting on the other bank of the river waiting for the Greek army approaching and throwing them a cloud of arrows and spears. Once again Greek hoplites struggle to cross the Gaison. When they finally managed to do it they had one chance to close the battle: dice went on the wrong direction and then the Persian closed on the weakest enemy units finishing them end pushing the remaining attacking forces off the map.

Thanks to Joe for the nice battle. The final result is probably the perfect mirror of an extremely even match!

The first game results were reported earlier by Gonzo (Joe). Here below the final score and attached both my log files

Game 1
Asqwasqw (Greeks): 5 banner
Toganalper (Persians): 4 banners

Game 1:
The game started with the Greeks reformed their lines while arrows rained down among them. Persian archery failed to find it’s mark, but their valor in close combat was evident. When the Greeks advanced quickly with a double time command, they managed to push the Greeks back, killing a hopolite and Xanthippus. Perilaus advanced forward to support the troops and managed to push a wedge into the Persian lines. He too however, fell in battle, and the rest of the Athens retreated across the river to safety. It was then that the Spartans arrived, pushing the Persians out of the hills. Leotychides charged downhill with his Spartans, routing the tired Persians and giving the Greeks the victory in a close fought battle.

Game 2
Toganalper (Greeks): 5 banners
asqwasqw (Persians): 4 banners

The game began with the Greeks pushing forward on the left and the right flank. Mardontes advanced quickly to block off the Spartan approach. Some light arrow fire and a contested river crossing dissuaded the Spartans from advancing, leaving the Athenians to try to win the fight by themselves. The Greeks were well coordinated in their advance, and soon had a full line of Hoplites on the river. The Persians stood firm at the river crossing and managed to deal some heavy damage, but their left flank started to crumble. Seeing this, Artayntes rushed forward and closed the gap, killing the the Greeks before they could push through. He started to attack down the line, killing the Greeks as he went, but failed to finish off a group of Athenian Hoplites. That gave the Greeks the momentum they needed to push through, and with heavily wounded troops managed to take down Tigranes in a surprise attack. Another close game.

First tie of the tournament! Thanks for Toganalper for showing the the ropes of Vassal.
