Quick Game Summary
Turns out, I am unfamiliar with this AK Tourney going on right now. Maybe M0rtem can fill us in with more details.
Well these two players take there game to comet. Itís hard to understand whatís going on at first, because they are speaking in some other language.

This games shows how TA seems to be making a much bigger change ( Something close to a TA Rennessaince ). More people are recognizing the early game, emg are finally being allowed again, and people are starting to expand using offensive units, rather than long MT lines. These changes are bringing much needed relief from just a year ago. When I used to play Comet while back, all it was for ĺ of the game was making Mt lines. ZzZz, stuff that can make you quit Ta!

Back to the game. Good strategic emg attacks on unguarded mexes. What I noticed about this game is these players had a hard time expanding. Remember, Emgís might win you the early game, but it matters how much you expanded during the time that effects the outcome of the game. Overall game is somewhat short, intense, and fun to watch.

Game Summary

-Beginning Game Both players make rapid emgís, and throw them at eachother. Mexes get taken out left and right but itís the expansion of this game that bothers me. Itís that neither player has any interest in claiming any of the corners of the map.

-Middle Game The game doesnít pick up till BL4CK_Death, fills the mexes on the left side of the map. BL4CK_Death_ with his metal poring in, sets up a MT defense shield to block M0rtem swarming emg attacks. M0rtem seals his fate when he decides to attack useless targets, rather than to expand one bit. BL4CK_Death_ goes on the defensive once again with massive amounts of sams built up, and lets M0rtem walk right into his trap
-End Game
All BL4CK_Death_ has to do is to lash out, and itís exactly what he does. With Sams coming at M0rtem from the bottom side, all he can do is wait. Outcome of this game would have been better to watch if M0rtem would have just expanded a bit, and maybe saved a few of those emgís for protection of his cons.

Comments and Tips on Individual Player
BL4CK_Death_ : All you needed to do was make 1 con, and send it to the corner right, and he would have left it alone. You expanded to late but you kept everything cool.
AK_M0rtem : You probably know what you need to do differently. I donít know if it was the pressure of the tourney or what, you need to build much more and your attacks late in the game where just idiotic. ; D
