It was a very umbalanced weekend. A great Friday with a row games with just 1 player replacement in one of the teams making the instensity sloping up and a Saturday kind of… lame.
We did manage to coordinate quite well at the beginning but as the game go on we kinda desynchronized and at the end we were just playing at a completely different pace. That and the fact they did a pretty nice solid work gave them the game.
Room got full and after the usual I-don’t-have-this-map problems we ended in uncomfortable movement land. We got a slightly advantage from very early in the game and then slowly retreat our front lines to the south-east corner while they kept constant pressure from west and north. Quite close and fun.
Carter came back to replace Compuguy, Fire started to “cheer us up” with his tunes but despite this we managed to, again, get a small lead and they play it while retreating deeper and deeper in our DZ. Quite close again. One of those games where you find yourself wondering how could they managed to keep sending more and more units considering your team has run out of shield and units and they are back in the score.
But This time the replacement was Ghat… we were just fucked. We somehow managed to hold not too bad at the beginning and we even got ahead in the score but then they grip closed, shpooky freaked out as he found himself surrounded and, well. It was too much to recover from.
It was too evident that at this point we did run out of ideas. We tried several flanks but they were dug too deep and to solidly in the southern hill for us to be able to dream with coming back in the score. The night finished with a tie between both teams.
Oh my! What a dreadful night… We started with a 2vs3 where our two new players decided to run for it up to the very most distant edge from the other team which leaded to a slow point bleeding due to their coordinated attacks, their nicely placed radars and their extensive mining. By when I convinced them to attack we were too far behind on the score to have any real chance.
And when we were starting to get in job with Joxer to fill a 3vs3. When we managed to do a great start, jumping on them as maniacs (I was really pissed), holding the score to a even 300 vs 300 despite Elektro’s inexplicable suicide being ahead in the score, just few second before the end of an intense thrilling game… GameRanger Crashed for all of us and refused to work again for an hour more… Grunt, regrunt and megagrunt… ¬.¬
With that said it’s obvious I’m as revenge-thirsty as one can be so… see you on the ground, little ugly ladies!
