Last night 'Redux' reminded us, how important it can be, to know other maps than DM2 DM3 and E1M2, as they played the undefeated clan in division 1 - 'LegeArtis'.
Seeing as 'Redux have been having some connection problems lately, hence they havent played so many games as they should have, one might think they were without any chance, of giving 'LegeArtis' a real battle.
I for one, was proven otherwise. Starting out on DM3 it looked very equal during the first 5 minutes. both clans fighting to keep RA/YA and getting those quads. But it wasn't until 'LegeArtis' got the 2nd pent, their frags got underway. Sadly that was the end of that match.
A rumor runs that retic announced himself as being top 10 on DM3, in sweden. I can neither confirm or deny that rumor, but only state the fact, that this couldn't have been his best day.
And now for the more interesting map of this match - E3M6. A map I for one know was something silver was looking forward to. It was clear from the start, that 'Redux' knew how to play E3M6 as a team, and use the full area of the level, as opposed to 'LegeArtis', who for some reason flocked to RL area only, as flies to a dog-poo.
Some might call this round CS@de_e3m6, but I was sure biting nails to the end. It was for once nice to see 2 teams, struggling to hold their ground, none of the usual 50 frag rape counts we see on DM2. But despite 'Redux' effort to hold RA/YA/gl and taking almost all quads, they didn't manage to penetrate strikers fortress at RL area.
2 highlights of this match come to mind. First when 'LegeArtis' gained control over most of the map, including RA and Quad, and somehow throws it all away by flocking back to RL and camp, instead of staying around quad/ya like 'Redux' did most of the match. If it wasn't for silvers rather clumsy quad run in the very end, I would have put my 2 danish kroner on 'Redux' as winner of this map.
The second highlight, relates to the incident I described just before - silvers quadrun. With only a minute left, and a few frags behind, silver took the quad with RL and YA, and up the elevator to shaft/bridge, where 2 enemies were guarding. He missed the first shot, alerting the two opponents, exposing his position, which ensued in a mass rape from above. If he wouldn't have missed that shot, I'm sure 'Redux' would have won. But shit happens.
A very big "well played" to both teams on this rarely played map.
On a fnny note nabbe was trapped by the nail room for a few minutes, cause he didn't knew that you were supposed to press the button, 1meter away :)) Took about 5 minutes before someone from 'LegeArtis' finally found the button, after 3 lost rocket launchers, being trapped there.
