XLI Ladle with mdm, looking forward ->

Post by Rain »

I would like to thank ashitaka for giving me the opportunity to play with mdm this ladle and I would like to thank 2020, j and quack to have played with us. We had no meeting before ladle, we played in 5 versus 6 and we lost. In spite of all, we left the game happy and proud of our team.
I'm in a forward-looking mood. I've yet started thinking about strategies, possible meetings, etcetera.
So, I'm officially inviting with this: concord, sinewav and all mdm players to play with °°ps on next ladle.

Sincerely,

rain

:) Oh wow, thanks. That would be a conflict of interest with my current team. However, if it looks like Team Unknown has commitment problems in a few weeks, I'll definitely contact you.

In my eyes 5vs6 as rusty and as unprepared as you guys were (to wich my team was the opposite 7 guys showed up and we practiced an hour early) you guys played well it was also nice to see 2020 and rain play again :D

I too have prior commitments.

Perhaps as °°ps we should plan a date and challenge some opponent. Maybe DS for old time's sake.

Thank you, too. I didn’t expect that many players would come. And in my eyes the rounds were closer, than I thought they would be. Even if we lost 2-0, we fought till the end.
So rain, I hope we will get some for oops. If all from mdm will come and a few others, we would have a complete ladle team. Practise, tactics and meetings wouldn’t be bad at all, like Concord said. Let’s see who and what we can get…so long.

Left wing, position 2, double or single grinding.
If possible, I wish to try keeper and position 1 too in our meetings, since training is not allowed in G5's...

I have seen some interesting techniques in last ladle, like castle sweeping by Pru, that I would like to try. And I think some others, like middle trap, should be retrieved.

I also purpose to have some practice all together in Nexus9, what does it have to do with fortress? I will demonstrate you.

bring it on!
time and location
and i will be there
(except 26th to 2nd feb)

and
i don't know who was responsible for it
but someone was coming down the inside between me (pos3) and pos 1
and creating a little box just at the split

definitely to avoid centering
but i have not seen that before

liked it a lot

but i think it depended on my doing a loose grind
is that right?

2020 I beleive your talking about mazuffers center block it does not require a light grind only that one wing splits a bit earlier than normal though I don't trust only it alone because I can center past it if anyone grinds light. Though if you do it then lightly block that side it's fairly effective.
