Dom - The Rematch
|Totals / Av.
We knew we could do it. We knew is was plausible
after the right pasting ;-) we gave an unsuspecting KoD team with 3 LPBs
to our none in yesterday's practice.
But we also knew the Dom game would be harder. In the
practice the other team didn't have any tactics, and they didn't think
we had any new, radically different (for us) tactics.
Having said that, it started pretty well for us but didn't stay that
way for long. I spawned at the start in the perfect spot, and so
did Drool from his demo.
There was, however, a fair amount of resistance with BigFoot racing ahead
to an early lead with most of KoD evens on 1. I found Quad LGing
people was a bit of a pain in the arse, called BigFoot. He was foiling
me like hell around the Quad with his Rocket Launcher, though I did get
my own back later.
Drool and Fab were having a tough old time in the red armor/grenade
launcher room, but they were holding their own. Sid seemed to be
doing steady too, the times I met him. Sid didn't exist on Drool's
demo so I'm afraid I can't say much more about you Sid :-(.
Then, disaster struck! Everyone in CP managed to die at the same
time, and for the next 4-5 mins Dom were racing around gibbing me and the
rest of CP. I'm not sure how they did it, because even though I respawned
in the usally peaceful areas I had a Dom with RL right on me - ie. To me
they weren't guarding and stopping us get any weapons.
Luckily Drool and Fab steadied the ship, regaining the GL/RA room and
giving Dom a focus for attacks. This left me to zap away in peace
and Sid also held off peeps round the YA above RL. Things continued
like this, with CP and Dom sharing the spoils and captures, until 7 mins
from time. We were getting quite desperate with 20 frags to regain.
And then everything just clicked into place. I suddenly found
it suprisingly easy to get the Quad - BigFoot wasn't pissing me off.
Fab and Drool had the RA/GL rock solid, and Dom were therefore starved
of the 200% Armor. Fab had a storming 2nd half. Dom
pushed into the RL area and this was just perfect for us. With Sid
harassing them from above and my clockwork Quad handy at clearing out rooms
with lots of peeps with no armor, they took a battering in the last
7 mins. It took us 4 mins to overhall the 20 frag margin and other
two to build up a lead of 8. The last 2 minutes were tense but ultimately
I'm really happy with everyone's play, we played as a team and it worked.
One thing is for sure, we have damn well done so much better than our previous
meeting with Dom in the MCW ( 88 - 152), and we actually beat a team that
only lost 1 match last MCW season. Also our UKCL victory against
Dom (132 - 130) was pretty much won by 'brute force' and saviour Spud.
I think we could be slightly more competitive in the MCW now that for some
(and possibly most) of the levels, we have foung that 'organic' tactics
just don't work as well.
This is me, Keeper, signing off. I may be some time.
