    And more generally, after all this time playing the game, I suddenly find that while I enjoy blowing up/shooting/roasting people a lot, I am actually best as a medic

    Anyway, well played boys, total ownership with 8.5 players on upward. And as for their tactics on gravelpit, well...
    How DARE he? I earned every ONE of those medals I made!

    We capped all three gravelpit points in less time than it took them just to take away A from us

    Doesn't surprise me, considering earlier contact. Out of all the teams I've spoken too / we've played against, they have to be my least liked...

    Gratz on the victory, especially considering all the troubles!

    And apologies to those who contacted me on steam, for not being available, wasn't back from college.

    Also, intrigued about what the secret plan was? Did you use it?

    Great job guys, particular thanks to Cowmugger for jumping in for me at such short notice (and carrying it off like a boss) <3

    I saw gravelpit on the cast but missed upward - however it was obvious from the ease of your gravelpit victory that you MUST have rolled upward Seriously, the time you set on gravelpit attack in the second half, C capped in 3 minutes something, that has to be some sort of comp record. And 4 mins on upward attack I hear, spectacular! I'm so raging I didn't get to play.

    I could tell they were going to be like that. Disappointing, but not wholly surprising.




    Cheers for those screenies Apoc (incidentally, you should be a team leader now on ETF2L as well), does anyone happen to have the status screenie?

    We were looking for a sub for like the first hour of play, you weren't online when i looked though :-o

    You'd probably have gotten to play the second half of Upward

    Re: ETF2L Highlander Discussion Thread

    The match vs. Lambrini boys was excellent all told. Here are my thoughts on the game, but please remember that: A) playing sniper didn't really get me the best view of all the action all the time; B) we had several class changes due to people dropping, etc., so I'll refer to classes rather than players.

    Map 1 - pl_upward

    They started on offence after jerking about with spawnkilling and general trashtalking while we waited to ready up. We set up as planned but they blew us apart, capping point 1 with a roll and then pushing through to cap point 2 after only 2 or 3 minutes. Clungineer's internet problems left us without a heavy for large sections of the map and his absence really hurt for those first two points.

    We rallied well, however, and stopped their advance dead on the uphill track just before point 3. Good communication and high awareness from everyone on the team meant we held point 3 for a long time, and that continued through to point 4. Eventually they did blow our base to bits, but only after 12 minutes and 45 seconds - an admirable recovery. Knowing we took our practice against KritzKast Ducks in just over 8 minutes gave us a bit of confidence, but it definitely didn't feel like a sure thing.

    We changed teams and set up to attack. The first point was a little tricky to clear out but good focus on the cart by the light classes and on clearing out by the heavy classes resulted in a fairly decent cart speed. The story was much the same for the rest of the map and we won in just over 4 minutes or so. A very well played round by everyone, all told, but particular commendation must go to the medic and his pockets. Keeping our medic up and safe from their occasionally-troublesome spy was key on both attack and defence.

    Map 2 -cp_gravelpit

    We started off defending gravelpit as planned - solid defence on B and a token militia of Apocalypse and Dances on A. Between their scout and spy, however, they managed to prevent a capture at A for a full 3 minutes 58 seconds, due in part to Lambrini Boys' decision to try a full press on B out of the gate. We locked out B leaving them with 1 cap in just under 4 minutes, a time we soundly crushed by an almost instantaneous capture of A when our turn came.

    We won the first half of gravelpit so convincingly our opposition virtually conceded defeat and suggested we play the next round 'for fun'. We set up to attack and cleared out their split defence very rapidly, capping A almost instantly, B shortly thereafter, and C almost immediately after that. Our score for our attack section was 3 points in just over 3 minutes.

    They did rally a little on their attempt to beat our capture time, securing A quickly and pushing hard against B. We had become a little complacent, but once the shock of their new-found vigour wore off we respawned, regrouped, and successfully barricaded B.

    Again, spectacularly well played by everyone, with good calling and excellent teamwork. Hard to pick special commendations for gravelpit because everyone played excellently, but I'm going to give it to Apocalypse and Dances for holding their entire team from capping A for nearly 4 minutes during the first round.

    Thanks to everyone, and I very much look forward to watching the Twitch archive and the recast YouTube version.

    Yeah I mean the status-in-console screenie which shows everyone's Steam IDs. If nobody took one no big deal, we might get a minor infraction for it but nothing will happen unless we do it repeatedly.
    Will leave it a day in case anyone did get status screenie, then submit.
