No emg 2v2... hmm always makes some kinda static games. It doesnt happen here, on both teams, one is able to outplay his direct ennemy and gain ground. Teamplay will thus be a key point of the game.

Game Summary

The game begins with a messed cmdwarp, and swe_yzer has to walk all the map while others sit and wait... Loc team is a bit lame here as they move closer to their mexxes, Corb even building a mex and a wind. Hmm ok, why not. The game really starts, all of them long building queues, and as there is no flashes allowed, expansion is fast on both sides, the loc team using their comm to build mexxes instead of guarding plant. All of this is very classic. The swedes start to put pressure on the ennemy, with good radar targeting and aggressive defense building. But on top, locCorb is able to build a guardian very fast, and annihilates all of Rookie's defenses. Its weird (btw is it weird or wierd) as Rookie saw very early that corb was going guard and didnt seem to do anything about it. On bottom tho, yzer's strat pays off and he slowly is gaining control of the ennemy ground. Then the sad thing of the game happens : Rookie and Oreo both tell their partner they are losing, but do u think they would help each other and play as a team ? nooooo they just prefer to blast stuff instead of going thru the undefended middle area (on both sides, really NOTHING at all). There's a hint to take here guys.
And so, the endgame is a race for the kill between corb and yzer to kill respectively rookie or oreo. Download to find out (not too hard to guess tho :)).

Final Words

Overall, a nice game but i strongly wished they had more teamplay and ideas, cos all of this was really really classic gpp, and it didnt enter lvl 2 stage so there are no surprises at all.
