Today was a great day: we, The Bastards signed up for the Alliance Tournament Number 6 and had drawn KIA ALLIANCE first. A big name and feared in some quarters but as soon as we knew we were in; nearly all of the corp went to SISI and started training and practising. We temporarily stopped our recruitment process and cut back on more, 'ordinary' activities.
We trained hard and tried out dozens of setups.
After each practise, we learnt more and our grin got wider and wider. Right up to the last minute, no-one knew what the team set up would be. Only our FC knew and he was playing things very close to his/her chest.
This afternoon, the team was announced, moved to a staging area and the ventrilo server became a cacophony of mad noise. The rest (including me) cheered ourselves hoarse. There was no worry or fear amongst the Bastards team; no talk about the opposition only on how we were going to do. The entire corp had volunteered time and resources to train and train and train. We were ready.
KIA came with seven Ishtars and a vigil.
The game kicked off....and here you can hear the rest.
Ishtars died horribly and two ran out of bounds too. I think the match was the shortest so far.
Some quality quotes from the audio commentary:
"OMG this is absolute carnage!"
"I don't think jesus is with the ishtars today...."
"A smart bombing scorpion from The Bastards!"
"I was a little but surprised that the KIA Alliance ishtars were fielding hammerheads...."
"Very unfortunate for KIA"
