(No, I don't know why this is called "no0b strat")
This rather long 1v1 starts off with JR going air, 1:45 FF, & then using a map exploit to place his FF(s) half off the map, so that they can fire on Sauron's buildings, without being hit in return by the surrounding anti-air units.
Most of the action in this game is around the bottom island, including a rather amusing Comm rush, where JR gets Atlas dropped onto the island, then realises he has no energy for D-gunning. He retreats into the water to build tidals, giving Sauron plenty of time to throw up even more MTs for the second round.
Lastly, JR has an ingenious plan to defeat Sauron with a Bertha. But it is scouted & bombed just before it's built. Even JR putting the speed all the way down to try & save it doesn't work.

Not a bad game, but Sauron didn't put enough pressure on JR, so the action seems sparse. Also, I might add - Sauron has such a low building score was because by the end he had 16792 excess metal, & hell, that's 2 BB's after all (as it turns out, I add up like a 6 month old mango, it's actually 4 BB's). Secondly, he only had one radar on the bottom for most of the game before he got adv. radar around the 40min mark. Thirdly, please get a leash for your kid.
as for JR, use the F3 key more often, that way you won't lose idle pels to subs.
