Well, here we have Error facing off against Saigon. It's a nice action packed game on Coast 2 Coast.
Error has a risky start as he goes a very late vehicle plant, capping all the mex's before starting his plant. This pays off for him, as he gets a big boost in metal over his opponent, who went a much earlier vehicle plant, and gaurded out a few defenders. Error then hops into the sea and makes some cons and skeets/crusaders.
Saigon as well, after going vehicles, jumps into the sea and makes an early crusader.
From here on we have a big clash in the sea with skeets, crusaders, subs and defenders. Saigon even uses some hovercraft which is very rare for online play.
Neither player shows particularly good UC as they send in countless crusaders into the other guys base, to be chewed up by defenders on the coast line. Saigon also keeps his comm right in the middle of things and it looks like he is gonna do on numerous occasions, but manages to get saved in time.
This is a real sea-saw battle, as both players seem to take a strong hold on the game, then to just have it turn around a few minutes later.
A very crucial mistake by Error looks to have cost him this game as he sends all his units to Saigon and loses 3-4 crusaders to the dgun. From then on, Error seems to be fighting for his life and the game goes downhill for him. Perhaps the nail in his coffin was when he decided to retreat from the sea to go pels. Very bad idea against mass crussies and when your opponent has unlimited metal in wrecks to make lasers.
Overall a nice game to watch, with lots of action, but not much as far as learning goes. Id recommend both players d/load the game with pic and scott on beta tropics to get a better idea of how to handle Crusaders. But for you TADRS regulars out there go ahead and download this one if you are in the mood for some fast paced action and loet's of explosions. Peace.
Special thanks go out to Panda for giving me the title :)
