A short game analysis of the longest CW match in history.
As some of you may know !s] and =DK= played a single CW match which ended in a completely different direction than nobody expected.
A game on mercury which begun under the reason of playing just one short game which was finally finished after insane 68 minutes inclusing 29 overtimes.
Before some people cry about this post . Its my opinion. I try to be neutral as much as I can.
Clear favorite the whole time was !s] with the strong horsepower of the duo Gangler and Darkfire.
All players expected a high win on the side of !s]. After the regular 10 minutes the result was still 0:0. While !s] tried to rush the base of =DK= with strong power =DK= managed a strong and well-organized defense. Five overtimes later both teams slowly became clear that this game could last a few minutes longer than usually. !s] managed to steal the flag over 20 times but got stopped and returned every single time by =DK=. The first real chance of !s er clearly notice in minute 21 where !s]Zob (Arcane) successfully stole the flag in a quite sneaky and even invisible way. Furthermore he did a fast run through the middle corridor while !s]Darkfire blocked =DK=r4 and =DK=Würger. Due to a cover mistake of !s]Gangler =DK=hamon invisibly followed !s]Zob and stopped him with a long mid-range rifle shot a half second before he could score directly in front of their own flag in midair.
In minute 31 both teams had the next big chance. While !s] overrun the enemy base and got the flag, =DK=r4 managed to steal the flag as well in an empty base and he went back to the =DK= base. The !s] team gave him a warm welcome over there and tried to return the flag. After a short fight, Darkfire successfully returned the flag and Gangler tried to run with the flag but also got stopped by Würger with a long range rifle. Still 0:0. The following 17 minutes nothing important happened.
In minute 48 !s]Darkfire successful managed to sneak into the =DK=base and stole the flag and scored. Covered by Gangler who stopped more or less the whole =DK= team alone.
1:0 and around one minute on the timer. After a fast rush of =DK= against the weakened !s] team. Würger rang the counter score just 20 seconds later covered by his team.
In the 58th minute !s]Gangler took the flag again and run to the upper mid covered by one mate and met =DK=hamon who also stole the flag. After a few seconds the weakened team lost the flag but =DK=r4 managed to secure the flag. So both teams decided moving back to hold the flags in their own bases.
Now its a fight of All or Nothing.
In Minute 62 and 64 !s]Gangler and !s]Darkfire break together through the defense of =DK= and killed =DK=r4 and =DK=Würger but were not able to kill the nearly dead hamon hiding before his mates could spawn and help him.
In minute 67 after several attacks =DK=hamon was able to kill the surprised flagholder Arcane with two direct rockets and he returned the flag before !s]Gangler killed him a second later.
=DK= is leading with 2:1 and around 80 seconds left on the timer.
After a short shock about the lead of =DK= !s] tried to focus their eyes on getting a score but their power got reduced in the first rush already at mid. In the second rush they were able to steal the flag but !s]Gangler got stopped before he could become dangerous for =DK=.
Since then =DK= started a pretty "badass timeplay" with a convincingly strong defence power for the remaining 25 seconds.
After 68 minutes the clanwarmatch on mercury finally ended and both teams deserve respect and honor for this hard persevering game which required all concentration for the players.
