I was too late for the first round (why are the At-times so early atm?!?!), so i can´t really tell something about the first round. All i know is the lineup and the stuff i saw on obs:
1. Match vs Husaria Pol [HSR], r25:
Nec+Ele-Build vs. Balance without runner
I logged on Guild Wars and saw [Boo] playing the C-AT. The first round had already started and their opponent was Husaria Pol [HSR]. My first thougth was "Okay, that should be a win!" since we won every match vs them.
Robert who wasn´t playing the AT aswell added "[HSR] is playing with a Henchie", so my next thougth was "Okay, that should be an EASY win!". So i logged on TeamSpeak and started the observe.
I was wondering if i had muted the sound, because there were unusual silence- the silence of concentration!
As i saw in the observe, [HSR] really had a Henchie: A Water-Henchie instead of a runner. They were running balance. [Boo] played with an Ele+Nec-Midline.
2 Kills after already 1 minute! Ele+Warrior down- but not their Ele or Warrior. Cyner (ele) died when he tried to capp the flagg (no monk in range) and Happy died to their spike.
After this "wtf-moment" i thought it would become better- and i became better, much better! But not for us. [HSR] got one kill after the other and i though that would be the reason for the silence on Ts when i heared Dani (or Happy) saying "Well, that wasn´t really good but we won".
At this point i left the observe to check the guildhistory because i couldn´t really believe it, but they really won.
After the AT i obsed the whole match again and till minute 6 [HSR] got like 5 or 6 kills, a boost and stood in our base.
[Boo] won by splitting/pushing around, but it was quite ambarrassing to observe. At least i wasn´t playing there.
After the match [Boo]s personal Fanboy aka Benny aka Prott from [HSR] started flaming in allychat like he does after every loss to us. I thought he would get used to loose to [Boo] since it´s nothing new for him...
Luckily nobody in [Boo] really cares about flames expect me and since this match was really, really, really, really bad and i haven´t played it, i had no reason to counter his flames by kicking in his face in a verbal form as i usually do with everyone who is flaming [Boo]
If anybody of [HSR] should ever read this: If you treat us like this (flaming), we´ll never let u win, so maybe try a "gg" <3
2. Match vs What Are You Talking about [wtf], r10:
our Quad-Ele-Build vs 3x Melee
I joined the party at this point, so Leo had to leave for me. Thank you for guesting anyways.
At the start we did what we always do running this build on burning: We killed the first Sentinel. Surprisingly nobody died to the Sentinels (not even vs the 2nd!) this time- not even Cyner.
As i always knew, [wtf] isn´t really prepared vs splitts, so they sent their Infuse+Runner+Assa back vs our 2 Fire-Eles.
In the mainteam we stood in our base and played vs their damage+one Prott.
Luckily i know what bar i have to run (hi Dani!), so i ran Axe-Warr this time. This worked out much better than Hammerwarr (ty for the tip Happy!) and we could get the first kill on their single Prott after only 50 secounds and were even able to kill another one before the prott got ressed. By leaving our base through the lava, we could kill their prott again. 30ed!
Even when their Infuse joined the mainteam again, we didn´t fall back as we usually do and tried to face them at the flaggstand to not give them one free boost after the other.
I don´t know what our splitt did, but when they suddenly joined our mainteam, we were even able to kill their Infuse (?) on baseres, so we could kill some guys after time. Of course we focused on their already 30 DPed Prott and could almost kill him twice in this situation
After they got baseressed, Dani did his usuall Dani-mistake, like he does one in like every match: He had a good idea and did something clever, without telling anybody.
In other words: He got soloed by a 30% HP sin, even he was close to our mainteam but he just haven´t said a word about leaving our monks range for like 3-Aggro-circles
Anyways, we dominated the match, could even kill their Bodyguard later and could still stand at the flaggstand with our mainteam.
Because of the fact that we had quite bad positioning there (balled in a choke), we got pressured quite hard. Additionally Alex got trained by 2 melees with the flagg in his hand, unable to weapon himself (Mai: "Put at least a weapon on yourself!!"->Alex:"I can´t, i don´t have enough energy.").
I think one of our Eles died in this situation and i was like "wtf, i have told them like 100 times to push up a little bit, but they´re not even listening to Mai! Something is really going wrong here!!"
Right before 26 they pushed in our lordroom to do some lorddamage and die before 26. That DPed their prott on 58 (because of Danis death not 60ed!!) and we pushed with our damage to their lord to get some lorddamage on our side. They sent all their damage+Prott in our lordroom again, where Erzi, Controll and Alex hold our lord.
This was a quite close end for such a well done match and i wasn´t sure if we were able to deal enough lorddamage.
Luckily they sent their almost 60ed-Prott who couldn´t hold it up till 28, so their damage died in our base @ like 27-27:30.
In the end we won almost flawless
Only Dani-Nap died- and Mai one time in their lordroom, but what should she do when our Splitt only killed the bodyguard...
Happy also did a Video to this Match: http://de.justin.tv/guildwarsguru/b/277043877
3. Match vs Die Kaputte Truppe [DKT], ~r150:
3x Melee Mirror
We didn´t know much about [DKT]- they could run Balance or 3x Melee. We just knew that they had 2/0 stats and that ex-[sup]-members are in there.
We 3x ran and they already pushed on me, running the 2nd flagg. When i arrived at the flaggstand they already had their backup flagg there, so we even had a little disadvantage because Alex had to run the next flagg.
Both their Monks played with Doly-Signet, which was kinda annoying since you couldn´t "just stomp" them. That´s why i became to an epic Nec+Warr-Linebacker. Mai ran dis. Stance, Controll Balanced Stance so we really had a builddisadvantage.
Although both teams could pressure each other hard, we could scoore the first kill(s). If i remember right, [DKT] capped their own seed, so Erzi could camp their partyheal over minutes and we were able to kill them.
Right before and after minute 6 they wiped and we could timekill their Infuse+ something else.
The rest of the team ran into their base/got baseres. After that, they tried to splitt to res up their Infuse, while we pushed straight into their base to finish it. Ezi controlled their resses and we could win after 8 mins.
-> We won the AT and did some nice matches (at least the matches i played!)
rating 1.378, rank 28, 43 QPs.
Thanks to our guests: Mai and Leo!
