Yes yes, I read the AWBW FTA thread, recon rush, yada yada. You can host.

Guess I'll pick Waylon and get owned due to inferior stats.

I think you're just a little too reckless and you underestimate people's abilities to break through any sort of meatshields you setup. If you can learn to set priorities while maintaining those nice solid openings, your play will definitely improve.

I really really love the way you use motorbikes, you make them seem like they belong in DoR, I try to emulate it but it never really feels right, I prefer DoR's mechs.

Dusters are an amusing unit, they make people go paranoid and definitely can give you nice results.

On usage of CO units, you really want to make sure you keep your unit where there's a battle, do all your moves in that area, then move your CO to another area and continue attacking with it to build meter. Even if your CO unit gets killed, your opponent has wasted two shots on an incredibly buffed unit, one that gave out good counter damage while it was taken down. It's harder for you because of the CO field size, but I still was expecting a little bit more.
Awww, dear, you're making blush (okay not really but you get the point). And yes, you're absolutely right, I need to improve both my meatshielding abilities and I need to be more free with my CO Unit, since if I would've used Isabella properly, I could've ended up with a decisive COP or at least stalled you a little longer with my CO Zone until reinforcements could arrive.

And I totally agree, DoR's Mechs are fantastic units now on maps like Pheasant, since they can cost-effectively destroy vehicles without having to worry about so many infantry getting in the way; I definitely underestimated yours. Also on the subject of units that I thought would never end up being used, Flares came in surprisingly handy as effective Recon defenders, and though their movement is restrictive, they're definitely worth their price in the right situation. And those damn Dusters can be surprisingly hard to counter and make a wonderful harassing unit, so I'll have to keep my eye on them more often and make use of them in the right situation; there's nothing like a 13000 G, 8 move plane to make your opponent cringe.

And Kimmy, you have to fix your internet; I was looking forward to having matches against you :(

I main Brenner, so I am using a fairly solid CO.

As for FTA, you never really realize it until you get fudge over by it. If you need me to demonstrate that, feel free to ask. :).

If you're playing that Pheasant map, he might be surprised how easily you can screw over his factory capture with a recon, if you're blue rather than yellow Sven deary; of course, there's an easy way to stop that, but I'll let him figure that out, hee hee.

Put on a 30 day limit in case it stalemates. Thanks.

Hoping you're good, haven't had pre-match jitters since I first played someone online on AWBW. Considering the War Room scores you've pumped out, plus the fact you've had at least 50 matches, I'm ready for a good game.

The map won't stalemate, but I'll add the 30 day limit anyway.

This map sending takes a while, doesn't it? :?

EDIT: I was on it for a while, but needed to quit due to school. http://awbw.amarriner.com/profile.php?username=gipface

I was in match #1337 before the reset. Good ol' times. ~.~

The only design map I have was one with all the units in order to produce the damage chart. I think it crashed, try hosting again.

Ugh this sucks. Is the server borking on custom maps?

What the hell, let's play on Barren Plains for crumpets and giggles :twisted:

JK, I'll host then. Hosting....

Well, this is just grand. Stuck on "sending data" again. I'm sure it's not my end, but I'll delete the custom map I have. Sorry.

I've never had this problem before either, I'm pretty sure it's the server.

Perhaps we can do this sometime during the weekend? Pick a time and I'll login for that time.

Let's see how Penny fares against Brenner. She beat Tabitha thanks to the Sandstorm power, and she got Treed with Gunboats.

No FTA counter? Tis fine, I'll suffer.

I was much more afraid of rain to be quite honest.

I completely forgot I had to make a CO, I only have one because I missed what I wanted to hit.

Gao told me the effects of Rain. Wow, I clearly didn't know that.

Do I have the property advantage at the moment? I wasn't sure.
