Review
First of all, I recomend watching the previous game between these two (the one on GoW) before this one. The similarities are interesting.

Crip and Space face each other on Coast to Coast for their second game and what youīr about to see is somewhat of a Deja vue. Once again these players throws everything at eachother, with no signs of taking a step backwards or play it safe. Aggresive TA - round two!

Both players go vehicle first, buildorders are very similar. The main difference is that Crip builds five cons before reclaiming, while Space goes air after only two cons and a Samson. 3 cons more or less may not seem like a big deal, but when the bombs begin to fall on both sides, thereīs no question that itīs harder for Space to rebuild and keep his mexes up.
The only advantage Space had was an earlier first bomber, but soon Crip has compensated for that and grows stronger every minute.

Space, probably knowing that heīs on the losing side if the bombwar goes on, has to do something. He builds a sea plant, skips the cons and put all metal into skeets. Crip offscreens his bombers to avoid the sea, and Space doesnīt get any less bombs on his coastline.
In a sign of frustration, or perhaps a desperate plan to change the tide, Space attacks Cripīs shore with his skeets, taking out a few MTs but mostly leaving wreckage.

As the game progress, Crip keeps bombing while going Kbot to Adv and Pelicans. Space answers with a few crusaders and then reclaims sea to go Adv Kbot as well. The battle for the sea stalls when none of the players are strong enough to break through. Time to bring out the big guns.

In the final battle, that seems to have a clear winner, Crip lags out and I donīt know who was ruled the winner unless it was called a draw. In either case, this is a game worth watching even though the previous battle on GoW had more entertainment.

Main reason to watch this game: Intense battles are always fun, and itīs a great introduction to effective buildorders and strats for 1v1 on this map.
