    Hi folks, over the weekend I was able to record this game, the first part contains our team's effort at surviving in a very nasty world; we didn't succeed. The second part contains the rest of the game spectated while talking with the rest of the team and also some of the other Realm members on Teamspeak and it also includes the largest orbital offensive I've ever had the pleasure of seeing.
    Part 1 is up now, subscribe and stick around for part 2 to follow soon!

    I hate to say it, but I think you were taken out due to enormous amounts of dithering about what to do, and then right at the end instead of microing your commander attack you let them stand there while white regrouped and you went and peered at the back of your base... for some reason.

    Do love these small aggressive games though.

    Oh we weren't playing serisously; far from it - fun is the name of the game and personally, I think we were more privileged to be able to watch the rest of the game, as you'll see in part 2 - coming soon!

    Serisously should definitely be a word though.
    Cool game btw, I'll watch part 2 when you release it.

    Marshall, you need the improved system view mod to help you switch planets faster, or perhaps use saved camera positions.

    BTW, the reason the avengers didn't shoot the lander is, I believe, because when given an attack order Avengers sit outside their maximum range. You have to move them into range manually.

    It was weird, it felt like orange stopped playing a third of the way into part 2.

    The fighting on the second planet was just painful to watch. All someone had to do was use that eco to spam a tank blob and win, but instead it's this incredibly passive confrontation. I wished it had been some RLM guys there because clearly these players were still in the FFA mindset of cause no trouble, turtle and eco, when what they'd got into was a 1v1 which called for aggressive action. Hell, even RLM on the main planet were doing this, they stopped expanding, they stopped scouting...

    Just get the PA Mod Manager, it will show you all the available mods and handle all the downloading and installing for you.

    It's ok Brian, I've only been using separate threads because it was pretty inevitable that the large games would be 'fixed' and because they aren't just your 'average' PA game I do think they deserve a bit more of a mention. Don't you? ;)

    Except there were 3 or 4 of these threads on the front page at one time.

    Post them on reddit (which you do).

    If everyone thinks their certain match deserves more of a mention, then the forum will be overridden with these posts.

    I'm just trying to keep them clean and a place that promotes discussion.

    We really do need a sub forum for these things.
