Review
Oh yeah, back on GoW. Same old map that we've seen a hundred times before. Fortunately, the players are good enough to make it interesting.

We have Novice (playing CORE as usual) and Dominator (TAG_Shamon) on the left, Nucks and Metn on the right.

Game starts of with a decent air battle between Metn and Domi. Metn focus more on getting the top, and wins it for his team. But Domi takes the opportunity to bomb Metn's home isle while his cons and FFs are away.

Early game: 1-1

After that, boats comes into play. Nucks quickly surround the top with skeets, securing the area and keeping Novice ships away. At this point, Domi decides to share his metal to his ally. Pretty soon, Novice has a unit advantage over Nucks and attacks. For some reason, he ignores the top, and takes the fight to Nucks home isle. Nice to see someone take a risk and attack at this point. Most players would fall back and build +1k energy in tidals, first.

Midgame: 2-1 favour of Nov/Domi

CanuckisH has to build a guard to keep Novice away, and by now all players are in the water. Skeets, Crus and Pelicans fight for territory and wreckage. You've seen it all before, but it's better simply because the players skill level. All out attack mostly, and not many bolining moments.

End game: d/l to find out

Oh yeah, there's a Warlord too. Voted flavour of the month unit by Annihilated Weekly. No ARM equivalent was built though, pity.
