And, yet again, first things first. As some of you may know from the GCvets facebook page or even the actual Sand Table channel, Carter’s done a really nice video about GC. I love to see those beams and think “hey, that’s me!” :0)
And now, the subject that titles this post.
As far as I know it wasn’t very common to play 2vs3 or 3vs4 on the old days but the lack of players has made us to get used to them. I usually place myself on the small team so I’m quite familiar to the problems of having one player down and recent repeated strategies as the one played in this screenshot have decided me to make this post.
4vs3 in a tower map. Yes. You can fill the map with mines, bring arty and camp in a base, you will most certainly win but that’s not the point. We are all vets on both sides so that strategy is plainly not fair. Effective but not fair. The only hope for the small team is to move and get as much score as it can and then run away as fast as possible but if you fill the map with mines you take away from them that option so they just can stay after lossing some squads and wait you to attack. Ok. It’s an option but if you don’t even attack it’s just like shooting fish in a barrel.
So, when playing agains a smaller team mind this:
– Bring 1 scout at most.
– Don’t plant a base and wait them to do the job. Be brave and make them sweat. They are already a player down. I don’t mean to behave foolishly and commit suicide. I just mean not to seat and wait. Cause otherwise you’ll make that player angry and it will lead to games like this other one
And now… the actual report
It was a great weekend and specially a great Friday. Long and intense. It started for me with this a bit chaotic DM4. BTW. We have to solve our problems with the new maps cause I miss Ninjas’ maps a bit
What a mess and what a mining pain. We tried to flank after see how a professional minefield was to be properly built to find they had mines enough to welcome us from the other side… I still want a rematch ¬.¬
Orion seems to be Crinkles map as DM4 is mine or DM3 is ghat’s. At least it seems he feels quite comfortable there. If you play with him there, just be a barrier first and then a bait. It’ll work great.
That’s all little ladies. More in few minutes on the ground!
