Here we see three rising stars of TA - Snoop, Dune (we're not sure it's him, but Snoop claims that) and myself. Hrrum.

This is typical old school GoW. Three players go air, one go sea first. No sharing of resources, hardly any team play etc.

You might get an idea how the players are trying to improve their strats in this game. Soulrain being the guy who's ahead of his time here. Tidal farming was unheard of, but the building isn't that bad. The most radical move is the mass bomber strat by Soulrain. This was the time when BB ruled GoW. Some games back then was all about getting a fast BB. Knowing that Snoop is going for the big gun, Soul puts several adv cons on the air lab to pump out bombers. Radical. Usually people didn't guard their air labs at all.

Some funny details to look for:

1. Me getting hit by a sub and just leaving the sea plant to die, while building a new plant on the opposite side of my island. Why not a torp launcher instead? Don't ask.
2. Havik attacking an island with a single Crus. That was the level of UC back then.
