Players: David R vs Conall O
From the very start of the game Conall was doomed as Dave scout rushed and quickly disassembled Conall’s macro was quickly decimated.
However Conall was able to respond in a fantastic show of both macro and micro by producing a barracks away from the main battle.
Which lasted all of 2 minutes.
Players: Eoin F vs Robbie M
With Eoin reaching the Feudal age seconds before Robbie we knew a battle of an epic scale was about to ensue.
With a fairly standard stupid non-hun build it would appear that Robbie was king of derp from the opening,
leading one of his scouts to be walled in and COMPLETELY obliterated… by villagers…
As Robbie built a stupidly generic army, not taking advantage of any the huns perks, Eoin was able to harass Robbie and make a fool out
of his incredibly terrible micro. Eoin was able to disperse Robbie’s army by running a scout through the ranks dispersing the force, allowing for a few successful harasses. Alas…despite Robbie’s incredible derpery he bested Eoin in the end with an incredible lol trebuche paladin push…
For future reference it is advisable to keep your trebuche’s OUT of range of castles, and to not allow the monks in the rear to get slaughtered.
After a solid 5 minutes of Robbie’s control bindings running out of control and his horde of horsies running around in circles not attacking anything…
Eoin was somehow bested.
Winner: Robbie… somehow?
Players: David R vs Robbie M
Dave opening again with a decent production of scouts, Robbie had a fairly standard macro opening… i think, as i started typing this as they started.
Robbie had a fantastic derp though, losing his scout to a single villager in true derp micro style. Dave was able to trim Robbie’s expos down while
expanding resource collection. Meanwhile Robbie mustering up a stronger force was able to successfully not notice villagers on outlaying resources getting slaughtered….and then the ones in his main centre. Dave danced around Robbie with a large force of cav archers, shaving a bit off Robbie’s forces each time. Robbie’s castle’s proved difficult for Dave, after calling in a few rams, Dave took a hit however his experience in starcraft stood to him spawning infestor like trebuchet’s cutting a hole in his defences, Robbie for once in his life responded well with pikes which Dave took a hefty blow. With an amazing display of glitching, an amazing invisible-tree bottleneck formed, with robbie’s troops dying to Dave’s skirmishers, however after a tactical retreat(he ran away as he was scared) Robbie was able to wipe out the force of lightly armoured ranged units.
A large battle manifested as Robbie threw a large force into Dave’s army… in an attempt to strike a castle… getting ruined…Dave, feeling(unnecessarily) threatened threw everything into Robbie’s base, destroying anything Robbie had.
Meanwhile on Robbie’s outlying utopia’s of prick villages began battening down the hatches as Dave’s raiding force cut a swathe through the remaining of Robbie’s force, with glorious victory resounding through the room.
Winner: DAVID RUANE
