It's a pretty even game on flasheller here. Even if games like this one, on this kind of map, have been seen 10 000 times, a good back and forth flash war is always fun to watch.

I noticed a few mistakes tho. So there are my tips (people who haven't watched the game yet, do not read it):

MJ, when you see 4 dots on radar coming after 2 minutes, do not wait to have 3 const before making one mt, just make a sam. Simon only killed two mexes and two winds, but he could have killed way more if he turned his shootall on.

Also, going sams 10 mins in game, on flasheller, when there is a huge fight for expansion and flash wars all over the map isn't really a good idea. Especially when you almost only used them to attack top with a group of flashes that got killed very easily. Go sam to defend something (i.e top right, which was crucial), or to finish a game when you think you are ahead.
That was a waste of metal on flasheller, which is a map where you HAVE TO be agressive to win.

Simon, try to use your units better when you go for a const, mexes, or territory. That attack top right of the map near the end cost you the game. You knew there was mts there, and that MJ got a lot of flashes.
Why going in? Move your flashes somewhere else, make him move his units from there, then go there again with 8 flashes or so. You wasted at least 5k Metal there.

About your adv now. Never go adv so early when you think you are behind (i'm sure you could feel it). If you want to go adv early, you have to be sure you can handle all his attacks, from all sides.
I can't really tell you when to go adv, because there is not really a good time for it. I guess it comes with experience.

Keep playing these kind of games guys, they are the shit believe me!
