Hondo vs Hondo.

Mano vs Mano.

Jan Ors vs No one.

This match up has all the hallmarks of being an absolute Belter. Dark Raver takes a leaf out of the two ship playbook here, (also known as the Ginkapo Sloane playbook but nevermind), and brings a monumental bid and Pryce. An absolute bruiser in the Kuat will be absolutely ensuring that Roquax drops that Liberty early, with some additional help from the cold sweats and night tremors that Roquax suffers from after THAT encounter with @Jimble at Worlds last year. Once the Liberty drops it will be interesting to see if Dark Raver has been watching enough back catalogues of @PT106 manuevers to know how to handle this game or not. If he has, it will be over in seconds, if he hasnt its an even fight. The Liberty forgot to bring Mon Karren to the fight and is thus vastly inferior to the Lola build and indeed facing ECM's all round.

The good news for Roquax is he bought a 20pt bid, and will be able to abuse first player.... oh hang on. Nope. Thats right kids, be careful with your bids or you might find yourself short a jammy dodger down the local hangout and no one likes to be in that situation. The YT2400s are uncontested which will help but even so I cant help but feel overall that the Defence for Roquax is weaker than Huddersfield's after eating at a Gunners Lasagne place.

And so for me, Dark Raver will take this one.

Eat, Sleep, Dark Raver, Repeat.

Hey @Ginkapo,

thanks for the short write up. Fun to read since iam not knowing how i will start into the game against @Roquax.

"Alles kann, nichts muss" as we germans say. Means like everything is possible but with no must haves:) I dont know if i should be affraid of the raddusdrop Liberty or the 7 YTs or if i should be affraid at all. Fact is that iam profiting the first time from my huge bit. In the POD-phase i faced two dodonna yavaris lists who definitly wanted to go second or at least didnt care about it. Got the most out of it by running straight away. As a matter of fact and to calm down Roquax i dont know any of @PT106 maneuvers to handle this kind of fleet and iam expecting an even fight which will last longer than seconds. Big plus on my side could really be the missing of MonCarren, but as i said in the beginning: I really dont know. Maybe i can do it like the last season huddersfield with more offense for better defense. Worked out quite good for huddersfield in the last years case and i hope that history repeats itself when it all comes down to my huge triangles!;)

By the way: Me and @Roquax are sceduled for saturday evening around 7pm CET for all that are interested.

Viktor turns up to this one with Raddus saying Hie from a Profundity drop. With Raddus hidden inside Landmonition it becomes quite hard for anyone to force an early drop at I dont think Aresius will be able to either. However, with Rieekan on the board, it doesnt really matter, the Raddus russian dolls wont be able to have a big impact without feeling the backlash of vengeance. In terms of predictions I have multiple for you to enjoy:

If Viktor uses his iniative to be first player I predict he will lose.

If Viktor uses his iniative to be second player I predict he will lose.

If Aresius logs in, he will win. You just cant understimate the Italian factor in this game.

And just to prove @MandalorianMoose correct:
