Iīm not sure it is Pic but the name and playing style of ShesSavingMe is very Picish. Reminds me of how nice it would be if people could stick to ONE name. ONE. I need a consultant just to keep track of all the smurfing.

The map is Acid Foursome, so thatīs not a typo. Rarely played as 1v1, so that adds a few points on my innoficial scorecount. Anything but the default maps gets a bonus. Whatīs a default map? Those are the ones that no one types the full name of any more, such as GoW, GPP, C2C, RP, JP.... you get the picture.

Odd map, two great players and off we go. Arglist in the top left corner tries a scout rush but isnīt very succesful. Pic takes care of the Jeffies and retailiates with flashes. A lot of them. He stays at two cons only for the first 10 minutes of the game or so.

Flashes are known for being simple units. Fire and forget, just send them and they raid by themselves. In fact some people will tell you flashes takes no "skill". And while they are simple units, this demo will show how much unit control means even when it comes to such simple vehicles as the good old Flash.

Acid Foursome is a large map, hard to defend and youīll see two ways of handling that. Arglist tries for a smaller, MT protected base. Pic defends with units instead wich means a lot of travelling all over the map and of course no ctrl-w or even ctrl-z. Very nice performance in unit control.

Only bad thing that can be said about this game is the unbalance. Kinda predictable after 20 minutes even. But skillful moves and top notch building to the very end keeps the entertainment value up.

You can learn a lot from this game, and if you always wanted to know who that guy Pic is and what he can do, this is one for you.

Recomended download.
