Now both players are in the most competitive, ruthless mood in an astonishing tiebreaker. The expertise is overwhelming in this extremely competitive ww1-ww2 match that turns back and forth repeatedly. Even the players' attitudes help shape the course of the match, which is evident by their use of chatting.
This match is a must see for those who like micromanagement, raiding, countering, strategy... basically everything. This game has it all!
First this was a good game and fun watch. Both players are very talented and the hotkey work was astonishing.
There was no chatting in game only Stealth trash talking as usual. I mean this guy never, I mean never shuts up. He is by far the biggest prick in this game hands down. I don't know this 123Niko guy but I was rooting for him the whole match. How do you trash talk so much and lose??
Anyway back to the review. The battle for the most part takes place in the middle of the map as both players battle for positioning and stragegic resources located there.
Stealth had some nice moments with his Arty/cossacks combo, a really nice counter to Niko's A/T's and smoke/infantry. He also was the only one who tried to raid in the game as he split up his forces and attacked in two different areas in Niko's base. The attacks however were not very effective as Niko dealt with it relatively easily. 123Niko used mostly A/T's and smoke with some supporting AA's to counter Stealth's bombers. Niko later added Bikes and some Bombers to the mix and some flamers to deal with the cossack threat. Stealth used basically every unit available to Russia except fighters, standard A/T's and snipers. He was the only one to make it to WW2 also. Every other unit was used and some were not as effective as they could have been such as the rocket launchers which for the most part did not catch their targets as clean as they could have.
The turning point in the game is when Stealth realized his psychological words of war were not effecting Niko's gameplay as the France player stuck to his game plan not uttering one word, but letting his gameplay speak for itself. Stealth through all of his trash talk had no solid answer for Niko's A/T's and the so-called "BloB" which I first heard this term from Elder King in a recent post on our forums. I had no idea what a BloB was until now.
Nice match good players and if you can take Stealth's bashing of an obviously really good player, worth the download!
