TFL: DJedi vs. automatica!

Last night we played Automatica! on everyone’s favorite map, ctf_2fort. Before the round even started automatica wanted to make some roster changes to allow a new member to play. Apparently, Brotherhood of Assassins is now defunct having forfeited their last few matches and Naufragus from BoA wanted to play on auto’s roster last night. That was fine, because we wanted to play and not get a lame forfeit win.

Automatica had trouble fielding 8 and played down a man for the initial 20 minutes of the first round. Since they were down a man the majority of the 1st round we pushed hard against their reinforced-with-turtle-shells defense. We ended up pulling the intelligence to the top of their spirals and managed to pull out a cap. Meanwhile auto was running a spy who made it out of our base with our flag while we were busy trying to capture their flag. We defended our flag in front of our base while we captured again to go up 2-0. Auto eventually capped the flag and we were able to pull out 2 more after their 8th player joined. Round 1: 4-1 DJedi

We switched colors for Round 2 and we both started with complete teams. We stuck with the strategy we were using before and pushed 6 O with only lunk and Tendril left to defend our base. Automatica pushed hard into our base a few times in the 2nd round now that they had a full squad, blowing two ubers to push past the ramp room. With both Tendril and myself down we called for help and the rest of DJedi collapsed back to the base to stop our flag’s advance. Towards the end of the match defense was pretty boring so lunk switched to sniper to allow Slingshot to roam free as a soldier in the enemy base. Automatica’s more powerful offensive pushes left their defense vulnerable and DJedi exploited that to pull out 7 caps in the 2nd round. Round 2: 7-1 DJedi

Final: 11-2 DJedi over Automatica!

Excellent match guys, hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a happy new year. DJedi went 4-0 for the last 2 weeks of competition in 2007. Good job guys, see you next year.

TFL Match Results: DJedi vs ABLE

In a very heated match, ABLE fought an epic battle against us on cp_well last night. Twice we almost captured ABLE’s back point in the 1st round, only to be driven all the way back to our last point. Whatever we were doing wasn’t working well and they kept the momentum once they got it. The first round ended with ABLE 3 vs DJedi 1.

DJedi made some halftime adjustments, bringing in Tendril to scout with Rental. We also switched out Retro as demoman who was replaced by Infinite who played heavy. These changes worked well for us as we held them off and persevered for the win in the 2nd round. Please send me a screenshot for the 2nd round if you have one. I think my demo cut off or changed to a different file, will check tonight. 2nd Round Score, DJedi 3 vs ABLE 1

This created an overall tie for the match and we went into overtime to determine the winner. The momentum switched back to [ABLE] and they were able to capture and hold the middle during overtime to clench the victory. Can Rental and his one pipe hold everyone off by himself? With a medic and soldier down around him and a sniper off to his left (not in shot), he doesn’t stand a chance.

That’s how it ended, in OT, with ABLE controlling the middle point for the win. Great, game ABLE, we look forward to playing you in the future.

Final Score, 1-3, 3-1, 0-1. ABLE over DJedi 5-4(OT)
