g1- I felt like I played it pretty well.
g2- Wasn't really sure how to beat the atp. Probably staying age 2 to contest the line with pikes/grabbing some tps early on would have been a better way to play it.
g3- I think I would have won if I hadn't made so many mistakes(ageing with 4 abus, being too scared of lbows behind a wall ect). Also I feel the last ditch revolt would have gone much better if i wasn't forced to waste all my jans to defend my tc since I was a few res too short of revolting.
g4- I picked spain because I felt like it was the civ that can best contest the trade route although i had no idea how to play the mirror since it's not a civ I ever play so maybe would have been better to stick to a civ I know.
g5-No idea how I lost after he deleted a vill in age 1. Guess it was because I forgot steel traps and made too many lbows and not enough musk/huss.

wp and congrats

gg wp to Britishmusketeer. I'll add a couple of comments:

Pre-match: lemmings and I had practiced quite a bit together, so seeing lemmings lose 3-0 made me pretty nervous. I think the map pool was well-suited to my playstyle (Jebel Musa and Klondike have great TP lines, Indonesia has water, Herald Island permits turtling, and the only reason I play Japan is because of Thar Desert). I thought that if I could win 1 game on the first 4 maps, I would be favored for Thar and Indonesia (this might not actually be true), so I was mostly hoping to avoid a 4-0.

Game 1: I had practiced this build a little bit and done pretty well. The idea behind Ottomans was that I was planning on using Portuguese for Jebel Musa and Spanish for Klondike, so I needed another civ that could do a reasonable water boom or make use of TPs (Japan was an option, but I'm not experienced with Japanese water play). The cutting of a house and waiting until transition to pick a deck was cute, but Britishmusketeer killed more villagers than I could really afford to lose and he did well keeping me from building a large Jan/Abus ball.

Game 2: Was a fairly straightforward victory. Amusingly, in most of my Portuguese ATP games I'm only able to take 2-3 trading posts, so getting all 4 was unexpected and led to some rather poor macro later on. I think that the victory would have been way less straightforward had the Mameluke timing not gone as it had.

Game 3: This one was pretty good. I didn't actually see the revolt coming until it happened, but it was probably best to siege the TC down to avoid having that happen. Despite a few misplays from both sides (I threw cav away like they were free, Britishmusketeer had a number of missed opportunities to kill me), I think this game was a highlight for the series.

Game 4: Mostly a product of some age 1 shenanigans. Some mistakes age 2 for similar reasons to game 2: I didn't expect to get the whole TP line.

Game 5: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I wasn't sure if I could ask for a re-game here since deleting a villager was within my control. I don't think that I should have gotten one anyway, since it was a mistake that I made albeit an incredibly silly one. I hotkey delete to the ` key to make it easier to delete wall pillars, but I'll probably be rebinding that key since this has happened more than once: it actually happened game 1 with a Native Scout, and earlier in a practice game against lemmings with a Cherry Orchard.

Thank you to @Eaglemut , @Mitoe , @n0el , @pecelot , @rsy , @sirmusket , @SirCallen , @site , @XxFearingxX , and @quicksearch for helping me practice for this series and previous ones, my clanmates @oats13 and @williamwallace30 (and @musketeer925 ). Extra huge thanks to @lemmings121 for the dozens of practices games.

I think my control overall is really good, maybe top 2 in the world

told you to change that hotkey. :lol:

The fact that I always contested your tp line distracted you from someone not doing it xD

wut

Thanks for the shout-out, although we didn't really play that much, but hopefully we'll meet more often in the future. Nevertheless, congratulations!
I have to say that this tournament was quite even, at least from the semi-finals onwards, I couldn't really predict the eventual outcome at all, and also it's not like duck is that uncontested like, let's say, Ryan in ASC Winter. I look forward to future events of such a kind! Hopefully I will not be able to participate in them... :twisted: (which is not really likely xD)
