9 pm EST (3 am GMT) Thursday July 23 - RC v Frostfire for the championship.
I totally agree about the chemistry. These players will be the best match up for years to come, and a classic, too. Also, dush, what's with the inconsistency. You're always griping about how I MM you too much, and then you say Frosty should've done it . But yeah, I really give Frosty a hand for not doing it on the most important round of the whole tournament. Although we know you were probably shocked to lose it, when everyone thought it was over, but we all appreciate your awesome sportsmanship and raw effort. This'll make the match remembered for years to come. GGs! Also, seeing Kalle yelling SBR in the other chat was a nice and expected touch to the drama.
I'm calling it, this is definite contender for matches of the year. Thanks for all the effort you put into streaming the games, as well as Kalle and Regi. Thanks to everyone for the write-ups. Now on to some comments.
Now I DO believe this kind of evens it up, because of the lag spikes that RC suffered on Triumvirate, and I applaud Frostfire for the sportsmanship he showed on Architecture, going for that last gem twice, whereas usually he would never do it when in front and on his favourite level.
I thought that me and Imperial have even matches, but clearly the chemistry between RC and Frostfire is unbelievable.
Take a bow gentlemen, this is what an elite match-up is.
Congratulations to RC for the impressive win and going through it all unbeaten. And let's not forget, congratulations to Frosty for arranging a successful tournament and putting up such a great fight in the end. Great work! Credit where credit is due, now don't go completely inactive on us you two.
"What noone realizes is it maximizes gem collection efficiency on many maps, which is exactly why I use it. Plus, I learned from MBU players to use MMs".
1. Really? LOL dude me, Matan, Imperial, Technostick etc etc have known that MM is good for that since the MBO days, go look at the Marbe Melee Primer WR in MBU and you'll see anyone who has used it knows this.
2. No you are not primarily a MM user. But we have played many games, especially last year, where I was winning and you started going MM 24/7 NOT for the sake of the gems but to MM me, and those are practice games. I didn't think it fair as with the ping delay I had, having a MM basically means I lose no matter what. But I don't have anything against MM really, it's just that I used it a lot before Tsuf and a few people said I use it more than anyone or I should reduce.
"And MBU players are considered godly good. MMing is sort of an aspect that we've lost in MBP. I think we should bring it back because what's the point in swerving around every MM powerup just to avoid imitating a style of many good players"
3. Tbh, I'll say it, MBU players have been the best for ages, but that was only because they had MP to begin with. I'm fairly confident they are on an Imperial/RC level, seeing as we have MP now too.
And you misunderstand the reason why MM isn't as popular. It's because its mechanics, if you will, are very different to the ones of MM in MBO/MBU. For one despite the size it only seems heavier, as it can basically blast/use powerups the same way as the regular marble. It also has some issues, such as the bug when you activate it that gives you a speed boost. Also the fact that if you use it while rolling, you hit an invisible edge or something.
Those reasons can end up making it inconvenient or cost you a game.
Anyway use it as you wish next time we play.
P.S. Yes Kalle please tell us what you had in mind. And EW a sp tournament.
