Review
This game is a standart gow 2v2 game, with a morality in the end :).
Lots of good moves, and lots of mistakes in this game, so you will switch from appreciating the good skills showed by the 4 players, to screaming or laughing when they do things that, when you watch the game, seem completely absurd.

It starts with Metn/Heze on the left doing the Air/Veh strat and Abaddon/Rugga on the right going both veh, one veh then air, one veh then sea.
Metn going air first, shows good bombing skills, but it unfortunately draws his attention too much, and when Rugga goes air too, Metn finds himself almost without AA. The fight now takes place above and around Metn on the peanut, where both teams use skeets and bombers to try to hold back or erase their opponent.

The battle then goes deeper in the sea, as skeets start to roam around the map, trying to find air cons, bombers and lonely conships. Metn successfully secures top (tho unchallenged there), while Rugga and Heze try to mass skeets and lose as few as possible to each other while still doing damage.
Then a surprizing blow comes, when one of the players does not resist to the temptation of reclaiming wrecks a little too far, and dies in a trap set by his opponent, who skillfully takes immediate advantage of the error. Afterwards, it becomes 2v1 and while the courage of the remaining player should be noted, the game has no value after that, and you certainly will go at 400% speed until the end.

Overall, a solid but flawed show, showing in average better UC than building skills.

On the technical side :

Intense battle : average.
Skill balance between the 2 teams : almost equals.
Average skill/learning value : average.
Originality : you wont see anything new here.
Fun : the ending was fun :). Or frustrating for the ones who lost :).
