Match Notes - (7/3/00):

As always LoD is just tough as nails. This west coast clans ALWAYS give us a hard time. Server issues were tough as usual but worked out alright. We abandon Kannibus for a more stable connecting server. We selected our usual Thunderdome server for our home base. LoD picked DM2 and we selected DM3 for our map.

Map 1 DM3: It's been a while since the last time we played DM3 in a match. It felt like an old glove. Veteran members Riva and Takedown took position along with relatively new members Biggy and Diendai. We were able to take control of key areas early on and for the most part keep control. Diendai led the pack with 37 frags followed closely by Riva. Takedown always right in the heat of the battle along with poor Biggy and his wonderful connection.

Map 2 DM2: It is no secret this is not our favorite map but we've been forced to play it so many times it's becoming easier. It helps that it's on of Diendai's best maps.. then again I think all maps are Diendai's best maps LOL. Rookie started out with a bang dishing out with the strength rocket. Rookie held up an impressive 72% effeciency outdone by only Riva. Unclewad was plagued with connection problems preventing him from his usual dominant performance.

Map 3 DM3: After enjoying the homefield advantage it's always hard to adjust to the higher ping of the away server. I don't think Riva was informed of this however as he posted yet another PERFECT 100% effeciency game with 29 kills and 0 deaths. I was right here watching him and I still just don't get it.. think he deserves an honorary PhD in Lithium. Diendai pitched in 31 frags to ourpace Riva's frag count. I'm going to start calling these two the dynamic duo just to shorten my writeups. Takedown the rocket king down in the trenches locked control allowing Diendai and Riva to target unarmed LoD. Biggy was again plagued with a really poor 200+ ping most of the game but hung in none the less. Great effort.

Map 4 DM2: LoD showed us their true colors on the final map rallying a map win. Subset lead LoD and T2K in effeciency with an impressive 74%. Diendai again at the top of the scoreboard lead LoD and T2K. Biggy and Rookie both suffered severe connection problems along with poor He-Man who normally enjoys a 60 ping on his home server. Watching this map was a trip.. was like fireflys in the sky with LoD and T2K never hitting the ground in the rocket and armor rooms. You would think these guys were born with wings!

Final Notes: LoD put up a great fight tonight. I think tonight they saw the old T2K sharp as ever. The guys have been working hard under Biggy's determination to win the crown of the LIL. I'd like to personally thank Biggy for all his hard work in getting this crew ready for battle. Thanks also to all the T2K Q2 members who didn't play the match but are there every practice to sharpen the teams skills.. Eratamus, Flagship, Ronmaniac, Methane, VVV and Dr Demento. You guys are ever part as integral to this as those who posted the scores tonight.

Thanks to He-Man and LoD for a great night of fraggin. He-Man made match setup a breeze and as always demonstrated why we all consider LoD such a class act clan. Thanks also to Exasperate of OCC for reffin the match.
