Trout farm! Map with alot of wrecks, alot of buildup alternatives and alot of lag.

This is game from CBL 8, BTU vs Gnug/Tos. I uploaded this from my collection to show good game on underplayed map i like alot.

On 2v2, cause of layout of map, tactical teamwork on early-mid game isnt very often shown. So this game is pretty much 2x 1v1 as Natas vs 115 and Vapor vs Nov.

Early game is like silence before storm, all players build several labs and suck metal laying around. Vapor goes most agressive on land, but novice is too strong on frontline altho hes not making as many units at time. Novice secures frontline with mts and flashes and gets on sea. So does vapor. On other side of map, we see 2 different styles against each others, which is interesting to watch. Jorne going fast adv and pels/BB. Gnug building generally alot of everything. Fast tech vs Fat turtle :P

Action is on and to me it looked like vapor prolly plays map first time (?) he skips adv and goes mass tidal when tidal is +7, build he did would been good on some other map, but not here. Meanwhile Novice builds very consistent on land and sea, generally massing resources while putting up a subfight on sea. On another duel, Natas is BBing gnugs base while gnug has huge groundarmy sitting next to hlts and having vote how to try get through... For learning value here, watch Gnugs and Natas BB war, is it more important to get mass BB or use good one u have and keep it alive? Soon it looks like Novice is outbuilding vapor big time, while his gnug ally is struggling under pressure of BBs and pels. To be continued...

If you like to see massive building you should enjoy this one. Game would been more even but imo way it is, it stays short enough. Very long game on map like this could be bit boring to watch. Also all players play different, which is bonus from watchers opinion.

ps. if u want to know how to play TF, watch novice here, very impressive.
