One red bar away from a tie. The origin marine strat was a failure though.

Too bad about the the player who crashed on veil, but seriously, we didn't notice it and you didn't tell us until after the round was over. By then it was too late to replay.

I like the idea of it Fana, really didn't know someone did anything of that kind on NS :P
I wish NS2 provides us with so many different tactics that each team will have to specifically study each other's gameplay instead of going classic 99.5% of time ;o

Been doing this for a long time, although not with strats as crazy as these. This is the first time I've put them online for the team to read though, as opposed to just telling them what we're doing on Vent. Somehow frG managed to get hold of the URL (I smell a rat).

One of the biggest problems with NS is the lack of viable alternatives to the cookie cutter strats everyone uses. If you think outside the box, or just adapt some old school tactics, you can get some interesting results, but you're still very limited.

Hopefully NS2 will allow for more interesting strategizing -- I doubt it though. They don't seem to be thinking along those lines at all.

I've got a few dozen insane variations and tactics in my mind. It just takes either activity or some more informative commander than me to pull them off. Most of the time it just ends up being a mess and nobody is having fun.

How many of those insane variations revolve around loller-sieges? :D

A few. Nova has more lollersiege oriented mind than I do.

At current state of NS tactics which are focused for first 2 minutes are highly questionable. Sure I would have done same thing 3 years ago and I also did if we face clearly stronger opponent but I don't play anymore just for win. I doubt you will play just for win either maybe you want to have fun at playing the game and not just the euphoria which come from winning rounds?
It really weird season. We played one normal and good game before finals. In other match, time between rounds took longer than actual playtime maybe this is why most of our players felt rather upset after this match.

If we were to do normal strats, we might as well have forfeited. It would've been pointless. Instead of doing that we challenged you with some innovative tactics that played on the weaknesses of your tactics.

I should also take this opportunity to apologize for the comments Sub made during the match. He doesn't speak for the rest of the team.
