The Macedonians defeat the Persians at Gaugamela.
allendeuce's Macedonians (28/62;45%) defeat TDefender's Persians (78/78;100%)

Macedonians (allendeuce) 10.0
Persians (TDefender) 4.5

The Persians succeeded in crashing through and basically crushing the Macedonian's left flank, but the right flank holds and the center phalanxes crash through and rout the Persian levied infantry before the Persians could exploit the destruction of the Macedonian left.
Good game, TDefender!

Poor TDefender had a couple bad breaks in our second game, or rather maybe I had some good breaks. As the Persians some of my levy infantry actuall survived attacks that should have done them in.
Sorry about that, T!
Anyway, allendeuce's Persians (66/78 85%) defeat TDefender's Macedonians (71/62 114.5%)

TDefender 8.5

allendeuce 11.5

Lord Nytram and I had a furious battle,

I guess it's better if the Persians just go all out on the flanks in melee combat instead of shooting?

His Persians 8.9

Our Mac'n'Cheezers 10.9

Thanks Martyn!

Could you also post the actual scores?
I think the Persians should shoot more on the Macedonians right (with more horse archers there) and charge more on their left.
Historically Alexander had to come back to save his left wing. His right wing held, but probably only because the Persians withdrew upon learning of what happened in the centre.

Further to Enakan's post on our Gaugamela game
Enakin (Macedonians) 55/62 defeats LordNytram (Persians) 85/78

So the score is:
Enakin 10.9
LordNytram 8.9

I don't think these have been posted. Apologies if I am duplicating

Gaugamela1:
Edmund_Blackadder (Macedonians) 62/62 loses to fogman (Persians) 67/78
Edmund_Blackadder 8.6
fogman 10
Alexander died early on and his successors didn't come close really - 8.6 points flattered the Macedonians

Chaeronea1:
Edmund_Blackadder (Macedonians) 26/58 defeats TDefender (Greeks) 72/72
Edmund_Blackadder 10.0
TDefender 4.6
The Athenians collapsed giving the rest of their army no chance to recover

Chaeronea2:
Edmund_Blackadder (Greeks) 55/72 defeats fogman (Macedonians) 63/58
Edmund_Blackadder 10.9
fogman 7.6
Both flanks held enabling numbers to count

Next weekend I will post the scenarios and matchups of the Hellenistic age: Paraitakene 317 BC and Raphia 217 BC. The era of the huge pike pileups in the centre and cavalry charges on the wings with a few elephants thrown in for good measure.

Gaugamela

Londo (Macedonians) 28/62 - Enakan (Persians) 85/78

Londo 10.9
Enakan 4.5

Alexander carved through the Persian centre, ultimately surrounding and eliminating Darius and the last pocket of Persian infantry.

There are three Greek cavalry in the centre that could go in any direction; these were all brought up to support Alex. The Macedonian left had to fend for itself, and managed to do this to the very end, though they took heavy casualties.

Meanwhile, Persian archery against the Macedonian right proved ineffective. Frustrated, Bessos led a charge, only to get himself killed. Prodromoi and hoplites counter-attacked and pushed back the entire Persian wing.

Round 3: the Hellenistic Age: Alexander’s successors at war.
In this era of huge pike armies, it was actually on the cavalry wings where battles were most often decided.
