OK this be OLD SCHOOL! Remember when watching this that these guys were top notch at the time. This is a 1337 game :P If this had been played recently the scores would be a lot lower.

Having said that, this was still an epic battle and there is much to be learned. This could have been a gw at BY as Cytree is CORE/ Krono ARM, but if I recall correctly Cytree didn't go BTU until after BY died? Not sure. Cytree was somewhat the "core guru" in BY days...damn so much comes to mind after watching this lil piece of history heh.

Viewers should take note of the conversation during game...2 battle hardened veterans with respect for each other, complimenting each other on wise moves... as opposed to what you might see with a lot of the current "expert" crew. Also note Krono's use of early raiding tool...then mostly sams, as at that time going 100% flash was considered rather noobish.

I called this Dance of Death due to the frontline commander use. Very few cons were used early on, most of the work was done by coms and tree's com was at 1/2 health or below a good part of the game. Lots of punisher/guardian battles...loads of dgunning, nano-shielding etc...

Krono got a low UC score due to idle cons, idle bb, lack of move orders for factories...and not capitalizing on advantage gained by bb (troops just sitting there when tree's defense was all but gone). Cytree got a higher score from better scouting and very effective late game tactics. Kronos also did a poor job of sucking wrecks...wish sharemappos had been available 'coz at some points u gota wonder wth he was doing heh.

All in all a nice big game and a nice bit of nostalgia...blast from the past. Again I must say...these guys woulda kicked yer a$$ back in the day...this was advanced TA so keep that in mind. Thnx to whoever sent this in. Enjoyed it. Download.
