Review
A somewhat amusing game between two average players on a somewhat unbalanced map. Sissie starts on top, Lethalpred on bottom.

Like Gasbag Forests, Lake Shore is notorious for its unbalanced metal spots which favor the top player. Lethalpred immediately realizes this, going straight for the middle island with it's abundance of metal. Sissie in the meantime goes air first, but rather than going bomber first, builds several con-airs and sends them to reclaim rocks without bothering to build any mts. His base gets totally mauled by Pred's bomber which gets 10 kills including two plants. However, one slasher manages to eke through and kill the bomber before further damage is done.

Pred then atlases his comm to the east end of the map without bothering to cap the mexes or reclaim the few remaining rocks in the middle as well as leaving his air plant idle for a good four minutes. He builds a vehicle plant and then atlases his comm back to the middle, builds an hlt for who knows what reason (Sissie is Core) after which he atlases his comm (again without capping the remaining mexes) to the bottom just in time to meet Sissie's gator rush. From then on both sides start porcing heavily, building dt lines, guards/puns out of range and mass units and resources. Sissie goes sea->adv sea and builds a combination of subs, hives, missile frigates and warlords and successfully captures the middle isle. Finally, Lethalpred starts a guardian creep and manages to penetrate Sissie's defense, but makes a brash mistake with his comm...

There were quite a few critical mistakes committed by both players. Lethalpred, despite having control over 3/4s of the map, leaves his few cons idle whereas Sissie does a fairly good job building up resources in his quarter of the map. Neither side went bb or nuke which would've determined the winner far sooner. Finally both players built their first MRPC's out of range of enemy lines, wasting metal that could've been put to much better use...
