I haven't been around enough lately to notice this apparent decline in aggressive attacking, although your observation seems rational since defenses continue to become harder to break due to safer techniques and better sweepers.

On a side note: It was a great feeling to not have to worry that much about center attacks, which, in my opinion, are becoming an obsolete tactic (thank god).

Gratz TX, you played excellent game against CTz (we sucked a bit too :)) with some very agressive and effective fortplay. Overall it was another nice Ladle, although CT should've done better :(

Wow tx, just wow. You guys were a real powerhouse, and we all felt it. It kind of scares me to hear that your defense was so hard to crack, because your attackers were absolutely just destroying us. You guys doubleteamed me so f'ing much, it was actually a huge challenge just staying alive. I told raph this, and I'm completely serious when I say that my going inside luffy for a double defense was more to hide from you guys than to actually provide a double def. Jebus.

And to unk: you guys were really really good too. Any other ladle, and you guys would have had a great shot at winning it.

Also, great matches with sa and Tu. You guys really took us by surprise. Tu: holing our pos 2 wingman for a center attack nearly every round was a really interesting (and good) strategy; it gave us tons of problems. And sa: some of you just need to learn to die more quickly (*cough* Eber *cough*).

And also, thank you so much to the organizers of the ladle and to everybody who worked on it. You all were great as always (it's coming to be expected...maybe you should stop spoiling us...) and it's much, much appreciated.

THANK YOU EVERYBODY! :)

By "that," I assume you mean holing the wingman? Ahh, cool.

gm's Open team and R.

R the 5 of you played really well waiting for Lacka to show up and we made too many stupid mistakes to take advantage of the extra player. And you capitalized on our mistakes. Well done R.

And gz to TX.

Also some bigups to sa, who managed to gave us quite a run for our money with only five players most of the time, and also to tu for a nervebreaking third match.
yeah sweep was very nice.

You were there when the trend became holing > aggressive attack weren't you?
