That match was surreal. :P

Overall things went quite well, got 5 rounds out of it.

It seems decently balanced as well, last week my team won almost every match, this week my team lost almost every match.

Moving forward I might do more mirror matches to balance things out.

Next week is a TC game though.

It was pretty epic that round, It was just balls to the wall action for 20 or so minutes before the timer ran out lol.

The firepower on display was phenominal, like 24 armoured knights in a fight to the death with nerf bats.

I think I've seen more Bushwacker Primes in that match then in my whole 2 years of playing MWLL.

Hah, yeah was good games. Thanks Invictus for organising it, and thanks everyone else for playing ^^
As far as balance go... not so sure. If you win all or lose all that says next to nothing about balance. This time my team won all drops (Except the bushy fight seeing as it was never concluded), but I know at least the Mirage game was rather tilted in our favour as far as assets go. Enemy team had 2 Atlas or so, we got 1 Fafnir and 1 Blood Asp. That is the charm with the random drops though, you will not be perfectly balanced. Still it does lead to some surprising things and over all it ended up fun I thought.

Mirror match has its charm, but for me I think the random drops were more fun. Mirror match means both teams will most likely want to play with roughly the same over all strategy. It is.. a bit boring I say. One can not argue it is the epitome of balance though =)

Prime mirror is fun though.
And... the Inferno prime mirror was awesome. Love primes.. love inferno. Good mix =)
With primes you do not run the risk of having both teams forced into much the same strategy seeing as most primes are rather diverse.

/Merf - Had way fun

EDIT: After consideration added some on prime mirror match.

Well by balanced I mean in the grand scale, not in individual matches. IF there is a roughly 50% chance you won't be screwed before you fire up the engines, I'd say that's pretty balanced. X)

Playing with primes is always great because they are so diverse and non-boaty (well most of them) but you usually never get the chance to use most of them because they are outclassed by everything else.



And I'm still surprised I survived in that Vulture without blowing myself up  ;D

I actually enjoyed riding that MK II Prime. The only thing that still annoys me is the lack of free tons for Gauss ammo.

Anyone got more vids from this event?
Not that the Bushwacker Prime fight is not epic and all, but it would be awesome to see some clips from the other drops as well =)

/Merf - Likes vids

The prime mirror matches were great fun, with the random picks providing several interesting moments.

I am hoping for more of these mirror fights.
