The map is Water 7, A map by Safeway. When Safeway designed his maps, he made them mostly for the 3v3 and 4v4 arena, the types of games that Safeway enjoyed himself. At the same time, he created a slough of maps that are not just playable in team games, but very interesting for 1 versus 1. . Small islands with shallow water similar to Ring Atoll, with a layout that caters to a different style of play. Water 7 is one of those maps that hasn't really been explored in the 1v1 realm, and I think it has some potential

Unfortunately, its not with these players. I know AbdulRahman has been around for a while, but I've yet to really see him in a game, neither do I know anything about his play. Xpoy, from my understanding is one of the new TAClub of China players. Really the thing I like the most about him is that hes the only Chinese player that I know of right now who is currently playing any other map than Comet Catcher.

Like the other TAclub members, it starts out seeming like xpoy knows his stuff. He seems to have a clear plan, while AbdulRahman piddles around on the other side of the pond. Xpoy builds vehicle, reclaims to air, and builds a bomber. All my notions of him went out the window as he missed almost anything he aimed at and really failed to make anything out of an early lead that should have won him the game. After a little while longer, he somehow manages to get advanced sea up, push out two warlords before he realises that Warlords cannot cross the shallow water.

"Unpossible win" he declares. Oh the finality of the statement. Really it had little to do with the fact that warlords couldn't cross the water, but had more to do with all of the facts that led up to his building Warlords in the first place. "Only skate can go fight." Neglecting a myriad of other perfectly capable units, xpoy proceeds to attack with his searchers, while AbdulRahman continuously feeds him metal by driving his Pelicans into the otherwise useless Warlords.

So I'll use this demo to say this; Don't bother downloading this game and watching it unless you're interested in seeing two newbies in a wildly unpredictable, and otherwise boring match. Or unless you're interested in watching the immpeccable marksmanship of warlords as they knock bombers out of the sky. But do download Safeway's maps and play 1v1 and 2v2 games on them. And heck, if they're good upload em to TADRS. There are a lot of new maps that need attending to, get busy folks.
