Review
This may not be the most entertaining game I've seen, but it's a good one. Why? Well, the game contains only 1 varying strat, only 2 or 3 attacking units, and there's about 15 to 20 mins. of single bomber bombing. But, just about everything is performed well in this game, and it definately has some learning value for those who have trouble with this map. Also, it presents good examples of good technique.

Divine starts on the right, going veh. first, and FU starts on the left, going air first. Of course FU tries to bomb the life out of Divine. Well, Devine showcases why a veh. start is beneficial on any map similar to this one. He resists and rebuilds, making an air plant of his own.

Both bomb fairly effectively, targetting resources and mts. This bombing back and forth makes up most of the game but showcases some good off-screen bombing, the practicality of sending a damaged bomber back to base and repairing it, the effect of constant bombing pressure, and the protection of metal patches(FU has 3 or 4 air cons rebuilding winds that stump Divine's bombers on more than one occasion)

75% through the game, FU decides to go k-bot then adv. Divine sees this on one of his bombing runs, and goes kbot as well. Yes, that's right, there are no SY's in this game. Both make an adv. con. for an adv. radar, and then make pels. 1 move is made by 1 player, that changes the entire game.

THE GOODS
-offscreen bombing
-repairing damaged bombers
-overall good bombing
-constant bombing pressure
-"instant!" wind gen. repair by FU with air cons
-1 move made by 1 player (Watch the game sped up if you like)

THE BADS
-no one went sea, it could have changed the game in someone's favour
-initial MT placement by FU allowed most of Divine's bombers to drop their first two loads before they were seen
