Duel demo fans - EDL playoffs begun! ("select" demos posted)
« on: February 23, 2009, 05:23:00 PM »
 :smiley_abyz:

To those fans of duel demos, the 7th EDL season has begun its playoffs. Damiah and Purri already advanced to the quarterfinals, but there's many other exciting players who dominate certain maps.

The resulting demos will probably appear HERE because of some script problem at demosquad. pm me if you want some of the regular season demos; since demosquad's been down, a few of the regular match specs send me the in-eyes demos. There's been some awesome matches NOT involving Purri, Damiah or Provi!

 :heart:

I'll begin posting some "choice" demos from EDL #7. Obviously you can d/l all the match demos you want directly, but for your convenience and above all, hopefully, for your limited entertainment time -- I've selected some demos from the regular season and the on-going playoffs.
 :grinelectric:
Let's start with the most familiar name in q2 duels, Purri (with DaHanG a close second *wink*). He's battling a fellow Scandie, Gerppa, on q2rdm2 in a recent playoff match. Gerppa is a solid teamplayer, not so much a 1v1'er, except that he has a monstrous chain on Edge duels. Lately Gerp's displayed a very patient, somewhat sneaky, evasive approach on rdm2 -- after getting a lead, he's able to avoid the main combat areas while circulating the "back half" of the map -- strategic stalling, imho, arguably different than hiding or camping.
 :frustration:

p.s. *NO spoiler ahead* Watch this demo like a chess match, and pay attention at the 2:57-2:50 mark. We've all seen a player sneak up on an opponent looking the other way, BUT this sequence is hilarious, almost like playing that old game Manhunt[/url] and thankfully ends in a satisfyingly gibby frag!

To paraphrase DaHanG's opinion of the world's best rdm2 player Damiah, it's not at all that he's got better aim, it's that he thinks faster and predicts better than anybody else: all skills particularly needed on this map.
 :zzz: (my prose)

Although that sneaky walk to the pad was entertaining, I didnt really enjoy the demo. Gerp knew how to hide and play it safe, but thats why he lost..instead of trying to win he was trying to not lose by a large amount. Yes he was up and trying to avoid duels, but i would of played it differently in his position. Of course that doesnt mean i would win either  :forceac:

...Gerp knew how to hide and play it safe, but thats why he lost..instead of trying to win he was trying to not lose by a large amount...

Good point. There's using that defensive stalling to break your opponent's rhythm SO YOU CAN THEN ATTACK...and there's just plain 'ole defensive stalling. To be fair, Gerp did go with the high percentage attack by whipping out CG, but Purri's flickrail-on-CG has been unreal lately...so what can you really do against that?

NEXT Demo:

In a best-of-five or even a best-of-three match tournament, the fight begins long before any fragging: map choice.

Picking and kicking maps can help a player advance to the next round. Take q2duel1 aka Aerowalk aka d1. You know, the map where you need to make that speed jump from the top of stairs to RA continuously...and with spectators, without looking completely noobish when you miss a few times while taking rocket fire and bullets!
 :help:
Aaaanyway there's an accomplished Polish player (and graduate of fellow Pole Scooby's School of Strategy!) named Ib0ginE who literally WORKS this map like a rented mule: whores the RG-RL ledge jump, consistently calm aiming, freaky anticipation...ah hell, here's the demo from this regular season and victim Damiah.
 :shifteyes:

p.s. Ibo will most likely be Purri's next opponent in the playoffs where they've met before.

I was listening to your cast for a bit -- GREAT idea to give TS some "ambience!" Apart from that pun, just awesome music picks, professional station identification clip, and cool that you're speaking between songs sometimes.

Thanks for adding thread to your highlight board -- I've got some demos not posted at demosquad to put up in a day or two.
Well done Jehar.

Not sure what's causing the slow-forum-loading; but I've seen it sporadically here too.
