damn shaun you get all the ladies

@erica: you had your chance with those flame tanks but lost it when they started attacking buzzers, if you had made them assault each refinery you would have won

I don't know whether to wub this or not. Veronica had an excellent shut down of the R17 corrupter/devourer rush, but couldn't close the deal even with the most advantageous situation...

It looked like you were going to pull off a flawless victory when you had beam cannons and ~10 ConCabs. I thought, "surely that tech center is researching the newly inexpensive particle beam upgrade", but it wasn't. ConCabs work great vs disints (and in 1.01 they slaughter buzzers as well), but without that upgrade they're toast vs Corrupters. Beam cannons work great to outrange Devourers, but they die too quickly when facing forces more substantial than the minimal dev/cor rush.

Your Purifier came at a perfect time, and you made the most of it, but once you saw you were facing all shard walkers and corrupters... why didn't you switch from beam cannons to scorpions? Obelisks are very slow to kill large numbers of forces. 4 scorps would have eliminated all of apollo's remaining forces, and a shredder would have kept disints away.

Apollo's flank into Veronica's main tib field saved the game for him. Panic selling the tech center instead of the radar center to deal with disints+lightning was a bad move (Veronica could have also won with 1 more Purifier), and the subsequent econ crunch rendered her superior infrastructure worthless.

What the hell, I'll wub it, I'm a sucker for a good BH replay.

Creative play style by the Nod player.

GG WP by both.

My scouting at the start of the game almost lost this because I didn't see the flames until they were in my base and then I was on the backfoot all game.


Ladies just follow me......

I'm glad as hell to finally see a BH game in the replays section.

Unfortunately BH lost.

Amazing start, however. That reckoner was wicked.

Awesome start for NOD, but you need to think about mid-late game, you ran out of resources and then were totally fucked.
