Wow. I just watched this and, yeah, that was one of the most amazing things I've ever seen.

Code: Select all

Round  TX  uNK
  5    86  36
  6    88  56
  7    90  74
  8    92  92
  9    94  106
:( What a bad turn of events for TX. I think this also underscores how much luck is actually involved in Fortress. Speaking of luck...

That lag was pretty terrible and even made the recording hard to watch. TX totally got the worst of it from what I saw. But that second match was great.

I see what you mean about redundancy in attacking: break down the def, make a space, hole, repeat. A good "cut" is really exciting, and so are center attacks and any other technique that has become increasingly rare to see. But here is the thing; I always believed those types of attacks benefited certain players over others -- those with better connections/ping and more reliable rubber, not necessarily skill. I'm not too sad to see them go. There is still plenty of excitement to be had in Fortress, in my opinion. And the redundancy is only at the higher levels of play. You can still pull off some amazing attacks on weaker defenders/teams.

So, maybe you were the first to hole your own defense in Ladle? That seems weird but it totally worked out; you won the round (and I think the match too). It was good thinking on your part and good teamwork by your mates for making the most of your sacrifice.

I don't think you need to give us that much credit. We definitely thought we were in the clear and uNk took full advantage of that. Thanks for pulling those scores out; interesting to see how it played out.

Tronny Awards might have to go twice a year, because who is going to remember all the awesomeness of single matches months and months later in December? :) uNk also came back to beat CT from behind in the third match. Crazy how powerful they seem to be these days :P

Semi Annual Awards, seems more fair, because last year most of the votes and actual awards were based on the last few months of the year, not the entire thing.

BTW, I don't know if anyone was paying attention, but those guys in "Pure Luck" are pretty awesome. I had very hard time with them and had to ramp up the speed of my defense quite a bit. They kept me on my toes. Watch out for them. I think they will be hot once they develop a play-book. Right now they are just doing the basic stuff, but really well I might add.

FYI.

New VPS's from New York, New York. Just tested a 5v5 and they are amazing.

For Americans, the lag_o_meters are hardly visible!

Server holds up great.

Of course you never know what happens on ladle day. :/
