As you might know, Crip sent in about ten 1v1 games recently, and hereīs perhaps the best of them. (Crip himself isnīt playing, but I can see why he sent this one in)

In the left corner we have N_Saint and down to the right thereīs a guy called RustyAna1Probe, hereby refered to as iWIN. Iīm not 100% sure it really is iWIN, and in this confusing world of smurfs, fakenickers and clan politics I canīt guarantee anything. But that stuff is irrelevant anyhow.

This is GPP in a nutshell. Flash, MTs and the occasional D-gun. Nothing fancy and nothing new. But what you can see here is a VERY creative use of those units. Constant action here folks.

As usual when great players collide, itīs the small details that makes the difference. Flashes dividing, spreading out, attacking from new angles and regrouping. Retreat and flank attacks, defending or raiding. You wonīt see many (if any) ctrl-W in this game. Intelligent unitcontrol from start to finish.

Most games on GPP has three parts. First thereīs the rush, then you have the expansion, and finally when both players have secured their section of the map itīs a BB and/or Guardian battle to break through. And that gets kinda boring to watch when youīve seen it so many times before. In this game however, you canīt tell when the rush ends or if thereīs any "mid game" at all. No area is safe, no player can relax.

Watch at normal speed, recomended download.
