Review
A pretty good game here, played by 4 good to very good players, with lots and lots of action on all fronts. There's so much going on in this game, it was hard to follow it all at some points! (I had to watch it twice, and didn't mind doing so!) Definately worth the download!

Silvertool(ARM) and Ocine(CORE) are on the left, Beanx and Bastet(both ARM) are on the right. Team 2 takes the initiative by Beanx sending out a quick raiding party and keeping the pressure on Silvertool. Bastet also joins in the attack, making it a smart double team on Team 1's stronger player. Silvertool exhibits his skill, and maintains eventually preventing, or making it extremely difficult, for any raiding parties to enter his base. Ocine on the other hand is left alone for a while, allowing him to expand and establish defenses, which is a good thing considering he's executing an all con strat.

In the beggining of the mid game, both Team 1 players put up gaurd's targetting Team 2's defenses. Team 2 does not really counter, with Bastet building more mts and units, and Beanx going adv. at 12 mins. Bastet(bottom) tries to go for Sivertool's(top) gaurd with mass flashes as his partner is busy setting up Jammer's and goes for a BB. Ocine on the other hand, gets a Timmy up and firing at the same time as Beanx. So Silvertool and Bastet both have hi energy shells falling into thier bases destroying random targets. The big difference here, is that Silvertool is mass producing both CORE and ARM bombers with 4 Air Plants, while Beanx has 1 producing peeps.

In the late mid game both bbs and timmies are taken out, and Ocine finds himself in a little bit of trouble. Silvertool sends units down to hold off Bastet, so that Ocine can establish some defenses again, as Bastet's gaurdian has taken out everything within range. At this point in the game the questions are: Can Bastet push through? Who will be the next to make a bb? Can Beanx recover from Silvertool's bombing?, and of course...Who will win? I'll leave that up to you to find out:) GG guys!!!

THE GOODS
-excellent UC by some
-radar targetting
-good use of air units (bombers and peeps)
-targetting gasbags with mts to clear a way for gaurdian shells
-use of radar jammers to counter employment of gaurdian's
-sharing of technologies by Team 1 (Silvertool got a CORE con)
-nano-sheilding
-hiding bb and timmys behind gasbags
-off screen bombing
-good teamwork

THE BADS
-poor resource management by some
-too many idle cons by some
-geos (providing most of the E produced in this game) were not targetted enough by BBs and Timmies
-not enough scouting in the early and mid games
