Nice game here, very technical and supreb micro from both players. Eshez starts a little better and manages to OC one of Grandors factories but has to retreat, after this there is alot of skirmishes for a few minutes but ultimately lobos are kicking the shit out of the fervors and Eshez gets pushed back, Eshez looks on the back foot and loses 2 of his mex points to grandor and 5 factories in the process, he does however manage to get a t2 factory and starts making obsidians and missile launchers, which proceed to kick shit out of the lobos. Grandor has a very offensive ACU at this point and is hovering around the 1.5k mark, eshez sees this and starts to kill the ACU, just about this point Grandors titans are coming but it is too late and his ACU explodes from bombers and obsidian fire. GG.


+Good start, nice build order
+Good move making obsidians rather than more missile launchers or t2 engineers.
+Nice spot on his ACU and a good close.
-Persisted with t1 even tho you were getting pwned.
-Slow to T2, a 5-6min t2 here would have killed his entire army and left him with his pants around his ankles and you behind him with an erection.
-Could have used your ACU when it was on 9k hp to kill his ACU that was on 2k hp, not sure if you saw this one but you decided to fight his army with your ACU instead of chasing his.

Nice play here, a bit slow to t2 but a good win in the end. Good micro and alot of neat tricks to learn here smile.gif



+Good t1 push, even tho you lost a factory you didnt stop and kept punishing him with those lobos.
+Good placement of t1 turrets on cliffs from below this was pretty neat.
-ACU was a bit too aggressive.
-Went straight to t3, maybe a stop at t2 with some pillars or a triad on his hill would have fucked him.
-Pretty silly move with the ACU at the end, but i guess you know this smile.gif

Overall nice play, could have been a different game had your ACU escaped. Very technical play and nice micro.

Im not too sure if Obsidians were smart. From what ive noticed, the 3-4 Obsidians hunting his ACU missed like 75 % of the time. I would rather have 2 Flapjacks with 100 % hit.

I would have thought this too, but he had piles of other units about maybe one or two of them just sitting back shooting rockets would have hurt more.

I figured I had to get more T1 to stop his damn push, couldnt afford to go T2. When I saw that obviously ain't gonna work I've put everything I had on going to T2 and very luckily got his commander.

I really have no clue how to stop UEF on this map, cauldr0n says flares might work, i'll give them a shot next time I'm in this situation.

gg, lucky me tongue.gif

Actually, he did put a triad on Eshez's hill.

This should be a positive. He did the correct thing by going to tier 3. Had his ACU not been so careless he would've easily won with the Titans. If he went with Pillars then it would basically be a tier 2 battle and it would be even again. He had Eshez on the defense which is great opportunity to rocket ahead in techl, Eshez cannot follow because he is too focussed on defending.

gg, shame about the ACU but I guess it's just something to learn from.
