Awesome matches of the past.

Postby Mogwai » Tue Dec 18, 2012 4:23 pm

So i was going through some of my saved recordings from the past and thought, damn.
must have missed a ton of them my self, and maybe you did to.
Let´s share them, nail biters and one sided brutal one´s alike.


This one is a classic in my opinion. Senator, Why?, Mike and Ace all in one game!
All very strong players, but witch team pulls the shortest straw?!

And there is the nail biter, Ace Rimmer versus myself. Pretty much anyones game thorugh out!

About the rus|Mike + Ace Rimmer vs Senator + Why? game:

New link: http://sfcon.demoszenen.de/dcrec/legacy ... 5.52.dcrec

To my knowledge it was the first 2v2 game with a massiv double team strategie. Therefor I rate it quite important for Defcon play style history. But it still makes me mad to see me on the losing end of that achievement.

But I have found a nice counter weight to it:
Ace Rimmer + rus|Mike vs Nightwatch + Senator as
Na + Sa vs Eu + AS

http://sfcon.demoszenen.de/dcrec/2011-0 ... _15.28.zip
Mike + Rimmer did go for a double on EU Nightwatch. And they were so sure about the outcome of this, their arrogance skyrocketed. We could take advantage of it by a delay + surprice strategie. After all that pretext the outcome is pretty clear, still worth a watch.
It amuses me in retrospective how hysteric my chat is, guess the game meant much to me.

Yeah, it was merciless. There isn't anyone around nowadays who plays with that classic Ace "all in" style.

It guess it's an interesting match from a historical perspective, and it was almost five years ago, but the play style looks a lot like "modern" defcon. The only big difference I saw was that Mike didn't seem to know the fighter trick. I would be interested in seeing really early games, where people were still figuring out how things worked. For instance, there must have been a time that spreading silos was a perfectly legitimate deployment strategy. People must have been amazed the first time they saw packed shots. Seeing that game would be nice.

Acutally silos clusters were common very early on, way before most other tactics were established.
Good times, the match with Senator against Ace and rusMike definiteley was one of my favorite moments at Defcon. But its surpassed by the Fall of MOR aka the Slaying of BOR, a game with me (Africa) and seii (Russia) against Blackbeard (NA) and the unstoppable MOR (SA). Mor dominated Defcon back then and it was next to impossible to beat him.

@nighty

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

@noryb

I think spread silos could be fine also today in some special occasions. About instafighters..yes, before hitheredoggyhooru noone used it.

@senator

In that game you and why? could have won and you was the mvp of the match.

MOR should've just played on his own with a double territory. Would have won every game like that :mrgreen: .

@jon

MOR is not the best for a period. MOR is simply the best defcon player ever.

@mvpe

Hahahha...I replyed to your post but you deleted it.

Anyway It is properly that recording. But yesterday as today I think that Senator was the best in it. I personally learned a lot in that day and I think that Ace/mike strategy worked but it was not the right one (today wouldn't work). With a different silos launch and a different indic action by Why? the end game could been different.

Anyway, I took thousands of shots in that moment..hehehe...it was an historic match and thanks Senator to post it again.

Yea, I was asking if this was the recording with the famous Double launch by Ace+mike, but then I simply watched the recording, and yes, it was that game.
My fav moment was after the launch started

Sen: what is that, a cluster fake?
Rusmike: no, its ur death

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Here is a more recent replay from 2013, with Senator, Baton, Jon IL and me. It's one of those sweet games where the timer runs out before one side can use all their subs.
