On a final note for General Hell/Ami/whoever else - I find Semoskiy to be a really bad tournament map. snip
The maps were chosen by veto for the contender bout, so you can blame the players
+1 to everything you had to say, btw.
I was really hoping to see some good combined arms play in these games (since that's what I root for every game). It's too bad that when OMGPOP actually tried some in the final match his MG immediately died to a mine and then bugged out so it wasn't recoverable.
I was very surprised that OMGPOP didn't get a Command P4 in his first game as Ostheer. He was floating quite a lot right before the T-70 came out, had just gotten 4 CPs, and had already chosen a commander with access to the command tank. Would that have been a decent counter to the T-70 that he must have known was coming? It wouldn't even needed to have killed it, just slow the damn things down.
Anyway, congrats to both players and I'm looking forward to more SNF next week!
