This is a 4vs4 game. Pretty much nobody attacks for the first 8 minutes (on a medium sized land map). Ferball builds a reasonably big army (maybe 80 units) after 20 minutes (FFAxNoob - "OMG, is he cheating!?") and massacres everybody.
The rest nonce around going for incredibly stupid strats like going sea at the edges (and LocBoogieman is usually a pretty decent player) and lose miserably.
