All con K-bot start. How silly is that? Itīs an insult to your clanmate to try and pull off such a thing on a map like Comet Catcher.

At least thatīs what I thought when I saw the beginning of this game. I donīt like all con. Itīs boring, itīs the flavor of the week for experts who have done everything else 1000 times and need to make things harder for themselves, just for the challenge. I was expecting a bragdemo-showoff-waste of my precious time. Oh yeah Scotty, the flame vault was standing by!

But, thanks to Eyedoll, this turns out to be a very intense game. Eye plays the map in a traditional way, vehicle, raiding flashes, samsons later on. And his offensive gameplay vs. Scottys defensive and slow expansion, is a great combination. Scotty has to bring out some offensive units later on in the game, and the game is on. The H is O! (about 1% of you, tops, will catch that reference)

Thereīs no way to tell whoīs gonna win. One moment Eye is getting the upper hand, only to get hit by a sneaky flank attack, before counterattacking somewhere else. Creative gameplay on both sides, very good UC all around. Well, expect for when Eye had the chance to kill Scott early on with his Samson army, but didnīt see the opportunity. (See if you can spot it, itīs just below the left/top crater)

More games like this please! No, I donīt mean all con, I mean creative games where the players have to adapt to something they arnīt used to. That makes a good demo.
