So we just finished our 2nd Friendly War ever against d:R^ and I'm not gonna spread the news in a roundabout way:
We lost with one tiny wee cap-point.
CTF_Turbine: I have to admit, I never played this map properly before today. And I think a few others were new to it as well. It was hard to break the enemy's defense, they were very well organized, we had problems to defend our intel, just because we had no real tactic on this map. Eventually ssq | Galvatron made it through and saved us one cap in the first round.
PL_Goldrush: We were on defense for the first round and due to lack of experience and formost because of connection issues we honestly got steamrolled - the enemies were unstoppable and we had no chance - but the main reason was, that we lost 2 people and were playing 5 vs 7. It was the same as soon as we were on offense, we didn't even make it to the first checkpoint, but I have to point out, that it was really close ;)
This sounds pretty, pretty devastating, but don't hang your head in shame, fellow squirrels, this is a result we can learn from. We had major issues getting together enough people as the war was about to start plus nearly everyone was experiencing connection issues resulting in a lack of players during the game, so that it was impossible to properly play anymore. We surely have potential, we have some very very good players and I think we can do way better next time! We just need some practise, especially on maps, we usually don't play. We have to refine our teamplay and our communication, so we'll be ready for the next match up! :)
Nonetheless I thank everyone who participated and I hope we have better luck with our next match! :)
Have a nice weekend everyone!
