Lets talk ying-yang. Ever seen that symbol? Imagine trying to make a circle out of two triangles. Not the best explanation but feel free to use Google.

When we play LAN games, the ying yang symbol means something that chinese scientist never thought of. The shape of a radar map when your ally´s base has been reduced to a stampsized area of flashing dots that represent the last line of defense. And at the same time, you are beating the weaker of your opponents the same way. See the similarity? It´s obious!
Picture a game of JP when you are breaking through on the right side, at the same time as your ally gets the same treatment on the left.

When that happends on our friendly LAN, we declare the ying yang and start yelling at out ally that he sucks.

This GPP game turns into a Ying yang after about 5 minutes. Sensation pushes back Bomba with some early scouts and flashes, forcing him to flee into his corner. Down south, Halide is under heavy pressure from Osiris.

But, instead of completing the ying yang and call your ally names that would be censored if I typed them here, Sensation comes to the rescue and helps his ally in a patient way that is rarely seen. Bomba seem to be happy with his yning-yanged corner and brings every unit to the fight down south. Soon you have all four players flashing like mad on a very small area. I have yet to find a symbol for that weird style of gameplay.

Eventually, one player goes down. Up until this point, the demo is pretty good. But the 2v1 doesn´t end. Oooh no, lets keep flashing the poor guy for another 20 minutes shall we?

Those last 20 minutes were pointless, but the first half of the game was decent.

Ying yang baby.
