1. Match vs Arcane Guards [ArGu]:
Spike vs Spike
We wanted to farm some GvG-Quests in [Boo]- but since Robert was Ating for [tyro] we had 5 Guests: Lorrin, Dragon, Kaddy, Mia Winterwind on runner and Scarlett. Leo wanted to play Mes so we ran Dual Ele-Mes-Spike- when we faced ArGu we were like "wow they just need 6 points to champrange, how it comes?!" but we were sure to easyly win this match.
Saints´Headset sucked a bit, so nobody heared his calls and Scarlett never called- ArGu did better: They spiked like 1.000 times and always with Diversion on me
. After i diverted my Stance, 2x Draw, Patient, Cure and my Signet (hat to cast in Diversions to Infuse right after) i even diverted my Infuse and could just try to catch their Spikes with WoH which didn´t work out and we died.
Lost after like 8 Mintes to top 1.000 players, gg!
I was super angry on Leo and our crappy frontline which didn´t call so i said "okay we run 3x Melee now till we got this 9 rating again and then i´ll bench Leo and never guest him again." Scarlett ragequitted and PMed me that Leo is the worst Mesmer ingame and he wont ever play with him again x)
2. Match vs Dangerous Bubles [db]:
3x Melee vs Spike
Easy Matcht, we killed them in like 6 minutes. Nothing more to say.
3. Match vs Glaring Talents [tyro]:
3x Melee vs 3x Melee
Robert vs his own guild! Kaddy just needed 1 champpoint to rankup and before the match i said "gz Kaddy to rankup" since [tyro] is in champrange aswell and last time we epicly farmed them.
In our frontline now Saints, Saint and Leo since Scarlett left us. Early in the game we baseres-killed their infuse before 2 (or 4?) minutes- a quite nice start. But this was something like the first and last kill for us in this match. We couldn´t even kill when their Infuse was on his way to mainteam again.
Trooper camped Erzemos Apply and Dragon, our Nec, couldn´t really deal much pressure alone (after the fight i heared he was angry on Kaddy because of so many KDs). [tyro] in contrast did quite nice pressure with their Nec and Ranger, even their Warriors (besides Robert) were bad as hell. Swuuusch hitted his first successfull @ Min 21 on me, when everybody else was dead xD
The rest of the fight was really frustrating: Kaddy and me held it up for ages, we only got some kills when one of Troopers random rupts hit something: once WoH, twice RC, nothing more. With the time we lost out footmen, because we were just to low to heal them up- special thanks to our runner, who couldn´t cast Heal Party for like 80% of the match because he was standing next to trooper or too close to our mainteam!
When [tyro] repaired our catapult the match was quite over, since we couldn´t really fall back in our base and couldn´t old it up in front of our base.
Our whole team was really startic, like we were just waiting to get killed allready. No ideas how to change our bad situation and without a chance to kill anything. Even kaddy said "guys, do something, just anything and do´t wait till we wiped" nothing changed. At least we stopped dieing at some point for like 10 minutes. Before 18 min we decided to rush in our base, so if someone dies from catapult, he gets baseres right after. That worked out- only Kaddy got timekilled
After Kaddy was with us @ 20 min again, we started splitting with all our offence, they died before time and killed some people in our base after baseres. At least some kills! [tyro] hat perm. boost etc. so they just ressed up and killed us- what a bad match.
After that match Erzemo went emo and said stupid things like "if we (better: me) keep whining in matches, i´ll join another guild Q_Q". Loosing to [ArGu] and right after to [tyro] was just too much and we disbanded for the moment.
Later, when Robert had finished his AT with [tyro], we started ladderin again. Since there was no leo-noob, Scarlett joined our ladderactions again and even Mai came later to replace Controll.
4. Match vs Zulu Ox Tactics [zulu]:
3x Melee vs 3x Melee
When i saw our opponent i really though "okay, if we even loose to bad RA-syncers, we should finally disband [Boo]". Even i didn´t expected it, the match was quite easy. They did like 0 Pressure (thanks god we had Alex on Nec again!!) and our Killmachine Robert did his job: after 6-8 mins they wiped and resigned.
At least we´re better than [zulu]!!
5. Match vs Mindbenders of Kaatu Keep:
Can´t remember the fight, must have been easy like the most ladder matches with our core.
6. Match vs Rentless Aggressors [rA]:
3x Melee vs Para, Fire-Ele, Nec-Midline
We played on Druids Isle our homemap- too bad Erzemo kicked his Crippshot for Magebane since the match vs [tyro] ("mimimi he camps my apply mimimi"). They played with Luzy Fiera, the Fire henchman, with which they beat guilds like [GeAr] and [OG] in the ATs- so no easy fight.
Their Spikes were sometime quite powerfull, sometimes just the targets didn´t even drip under 50%, which made it hard to heal up ("Is WoH enough or do i have to Infuse this shit?"). This fact together with the fact that we balled up while pushing their runner and spreaded out at the same time (-> over targets and Fire-Ele gucked our balling warrs) burned most of our backlines energy and gave them some preventable kills. After we focused on one thing we could wipe them whch gave us an important boost. In their Base they got some kills again, whch didn´t really matter since we got perm boost. After some mins they rushed out of their base with a flagg and we did the did a quite nice move: The 3 warrs and me stood in their base, the rest of our team went back. They just left their runner alone with an Para vs. 3 Warrs! The got easyly killed and we lorded right before their backline arrived again.
and a champpoint!
Right after we did 6 more successfull laddermatches which were all quite easy and boring and Mai+Liam went offline. We jsut had like 20 mins to the american AT and we decided to give it a try. We guested Steven and Richi from KinG and Eryon from [tyro] and started the AT:
1.Match vs Lake and Lake:
3x Melee vs Henchiehexway
Fast and Easy win!
2. Match vs Paradoxical Penguins:
We started ladder after the forfight and just met Paradoxical Penguins:
3x Melee vs 3x Melee
American servers, i completly failed at the start because my healings were all to late (great 2 secound delay again -_-) -> they boosted, some of us died. Later i got it and nothing died anymore- on both sides...@ min 20 we rushed them because of the AT- it failed. Again an epic bad match, Robert muted himself and withour robert we just don´t kill anything (maybe Bloom is missing aswell ;p)
3. Match vs One Time To Many [TruE]:
3x Melee vs 3x Ele Splitt, on Meditation
They were r 41 or something, so it was a champrate-match, too bad kaddy wasßt with us, she could have gotten her last point
They splitted with Sin+ Fireele, we reacted by sending Erzemo back. Later their Sin collapsed main and tried to spike something- it failed. Even they had uberdefence, Robert killed some stuff. It was late in the night, so we had one communication problem when their sin splitted through our mainteam in the base- he got one knight :S
After killing the first Ele on mainteam, Robert started his killingspree and we ppushed them back to their base and half wiped them- in their base we couldnßt kill anything again, because they saved their Knights like their own lifes. For some reason they sin ragequitted when he was splitting and after some time even one of their Eles disconnected- i´m not sure if it was a ragequit or DC- more a ragequit since we didn´t just loose the connection. They resigned.
Anyways: we dominated and would have won anyways. Good game, besides the situation wit the assassin.
Rating: 1.293, Rank: 58
All in all: we did +rating and got all QPs for the mAT! But we also saw that we couldn´t play with too many guests and have to work on some tactics. With our Core in 8 vs 8 we´re pretty hard to beat, just tactic can own us too easy.
