"John's Pond" is the map. Cool map. 2 land masses, one at top, one at bottom, seperated by a good bit of water. Ooloks, uw mex...hills etc...Sort of JP turned on it's side but without the outside water. Now I got the map from the unreviewed games section here but I am not sure how you will get it if you don't have it. Hit me up and I'll slide it to you or ask around because you NEED it. If only just to watch this tad it's worth the download. Hell of a game.

MOFO and Raster start bottom(A). Neo and Snoop top(B). Funny thing I noticed about expert games...many have almost identical builds. Would you believe: ALL 4 go vehicle...and ALL 4 do 4 cons lol...Neoo adds a couple sams but still...funny.

Builds switch up quite a bit as game progresses. Constant push and pull in the sea. One side gets pels faster than the other and it looks to be ugly but the other side quickly adapts.

Snoop is determined to go bb from start and does...and it must have been built on a horseshoe. He's left Neoo to hold the sea and that is a large task.

Raster goes heavy sea with a great build...veteran NS-mts lol. MOFO makes subs but mostly focuses on pels and bombing those long lines of winds up top.

There's lots of room for winds and lots of resources in general on this map(Not a lot of trees in the way like on JP). Everyone has tons of metal so it's up to UC and good decisions to win it. There are a few blunders/idle cons but the game is intense. There are more skillful uc moves and shielding/repairing (especially by Snoop) than errors by far.

Great game. Get the map somehow someway and watch it.
