BoMB – Band of Maniacal Brothers
Direct Strike

Direct Strike

Oh man. This game lasted for 44 minutes and 23 seconds, and was a total whopper of a game.

Cortana (AlmightyPush), fishbord and I started as triple Terran and tried to cheese our way to victory with fast Battlecruisers and Thors, but it didn’t work out very well, so we had to transition to a normal strategy where we just played the long game. The game lasted so long and started lagging so slowly that one of the opposing team, Swarm, left the game. SHADOW and <NACA> DBO stuck around until the end, and we didn’t get to bed until after 5 am… I’m dead X_X.

This may be one for the record books. I haven’t had a game lag this slowly since I used to play the old legacy version of Desert Strike back in 2011, back on the original arcade in the first release of Wings of Liberty.

Here are some endgame screenshots…

The score summary, sorted by the most points. Shout out to Cortana / AlmightyPush with over 1,000,000 points. I have only seen that a few times before.
The units summary, sorted by killed unit count. Cortana / AlmightyPush wins again here.
And finally, the unit graphs. Swarm left early, fishbord and I stayed a little after to take screenshots and chat, and you can see that <NACA> DBO did a massive tech switch very late in the game, evidenced by the downward spike in his unit count (teal color).

All in all, this was a very fun, but very tiring game. I look forward to playing more Direct Strike very soon! 😀
