Review
A very common reaction when players find out that one person on their team is a newbie, is to try and get rid of him. Ignore him or just quit. Newbies are not popular in the TA community when important games are about to be played.
But in this game, one team does something different, they take what the less experienced player has to offer and adds that to their force.

This is a 3v3 on 100 isles, a map known for Skeeter only games. But here we have 6 players using very different strats. Some of the buildorders and unit choices are not what the experts would recomend, but then again, not all players are experts in this game. The variety is what makes this demo worth watching. Itīs a good introduction to 100 isles, showing what works and what doesnīt.

But itīs an even better introduction to teamplay. Scott quickly takes command of his team, and starts giving out orders and suggestions left and right. Including the guy who some people might refer to as a newbie. And it works.
abigsmellyork, who asks things like "how do I ally chat?", may not be the best player in TA but he sure backs up his team the best he can.

If you want to see a different game, and enjoy watching very mixed teams, I highly recomend this demo. If youīr only into th l33t stuff, this may not be youīr cup of TA.
