Basically Rush fails due to bad micro. Then its Russia vs Germany on a seomwhat equal footing. I thought it was a good watch.

Two highly rated players - Russia vs Germany. Russian does double proxy start but it doesn't end the way you might think!

Additional Comments:

Very nice back and forth action, both players do a good job with micro and healing/conserving troops when needed. German player uses Toxic cloud very effectively, preventing the Russian from getting overwhelming numbers early on.

Snipers are largely neutralized in this game as the German player gets an early tank to lead the main force into combat and mortars take a heavy toll on Conscripts and Snipers.

Air makes a significant difference in the end game as Russian bombers tend to own with their area damage while the German's AT guns are busy dealing with Armored cars. Nice coordination of attack by the Russian player here.

Bottom line: Very nice game guys. I thought Germany could've boomed a little more to get to WWII or to add more troops mid game. The TC looked pretty idle off and on - the Econ. numbers at the end tell the story here. Once the proxy was killed that might have been a goal to shoot for, but then the meteor would've just killed more expensive units I suppose. ;) Hats off to both players.
