BoMB – Band of Maniacal Brothers

FlameHeart and NeMustang faced down in this gargantuan Direct Strike 1v1 battle for the record books. Instead of just hundreds of thousands, these scores hit the millions for mineral value killed and lost.

Of note is that this match was the third of three 1v1 matches (one for each race, in mirror match-ups of Zerg-vs-Zerg, Protoss-vs-Protoss, and finally, Terran-vs-Terran), in which FlameHeart came out victorious each time, crowning himself as the best Direct Strike player of the Band of Maniacal Brothers. Huzzah!

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.

I am reviving the StarCraft II division!

Mostly I just wanna play Desert Strike, haha. I’m gonna start inviting people when they show me they can be cool for extended periods of time, and not be rageaholics. Meanwhilst, if you’re already a BoMB member, and you wanna play Desert Strike with me, hop on SCII with me, and let’s do it!

Desert Strike is a StarCraft II Custom Map in the Arcade section, which is a ton of fun for hours on end. Read the full post to learn more about the game!

As it turns out, I have indeed decided to head up a new StarCraft II division. The sad news is that for now it’ll be a StarCraft II division only that I run. I’ve decided I’m not going to pursue re-forming any other divisions at this time, mostly due to me being pretty busy. Even though I’m very interested in playing CS and TF2, I just don’t have the hours of the day to devote to playing three different games on any sort of a competitive level. If someone else (i.e. Unibomber, Venom) is interested in restarting another division (i.e. Counter-Strike, Halo), then as always, let me know and I will make things happen! 🙂
