This was a well fought match that shows the power of the Ostruppen doctrine. Truppen/Sniper/1MG start. Lots of converting fuel to muni for those giant artillery call-ins. Unorthodox play.

Both players are ranked 200 to 300 in 1v1.

So far since using this doctrine this is the closest game ive had so i knew it would be good replay. The cheapness of the Osttrupen squads makes it easy to keep map control even when losing battles. They make great meatshields, scouts, and recrew field weapons,.. but the munitions for fuel trade is probably the most powerful part of this doctrine. In my opinion, the strength of Osttrupen is to be spammed in the late game when your both starved for manpower trying to keep your armys afloat, this will overwhelm your enemy who cant hold all the VP's/Fuel and fight the bulk of your actual army at the same time... not so much to be spammed in the early game.

Game lasts about 40 minutes and is epic back and forth. So fast forward if you like short matches :P

Pretty nice. I can see this doctrine working well for sheer staying power. In bloody battles being able to have so many squads for recrewing all the equipment lying around is a real benefit. In the early game you're really lacking though? You get run off a lot :)

FestiveLongJohns: I'm really looking forward to a soviet meta that doesn't revolve around T2 into call ins every...single...game. The IS2 and T85 combo is just such a faceroll combo in 2s

FestiveLongJohns: Yeah the state of the game for the last year or so has been fucking horrible. The call in meta is sooo god damn boring.
