Very innovative game here (as it isn't GoW).

Interesting thing about Show Down is that, besides being underplayed and banned in general by the GoW mafia, the map is creative. You've got the sneaky passage north and south, as well as the main entrance in the middle.

Key is to control and use all three.

Shollos gets the better start, by far, when he sends a few flashes north, south and in the middle. Scott, who plays Core, doesn't even have decent defence when the flashes arrive, and has to rely on the good 'ol D-gun.

Unfortunately, Shollos doesn't continue in the same fashion. After the flashes, he starts building ineffective Samsons, and he seems to completely forget about the north and the south passage. Pity.

Scott, who only got slightly shaken by the early rush, compose a strategy of three different plans. Good thinking!
Step 1: Com builds lab at south, and sends out a huge army with Instigators that tears up everything behind Shollos.
Step 2: Mid is taken care of by a slow but effective guardian creep, con only.
Step 3: Top is taken by a single con, later followed by Storms.

Excellent plan. Shollos is in big trouble. But as any sane man would do in a FUBAR situation, he goes all out EMG and almost lags Scott to insanity. Nice counter, not very subtile but fun to watch.

Will Shollos turn the game around with his onesided plan?

If you really think that's a valid question that needs an answer, feel free to download this mediocre game on a fun map.
