In the Challenger’s Cup semi-finals, the Crimson Guardians put up their best fight yet against the Peoples’ Imperial Confederation. This battle was hosted by our Burnt Colonel, Landless, with a 13+ max. Although we unfortunately didn’t take home the victory, we still made sure to give PIC a challenge.
We started strong in the first room, beginning with a horizontal formation against their V formation. PIC used several bombs, but we made sure to keep our cool and keep up tactics. When it came time to switch formations, we took the chance to invert their former position. We tied in this room.
We began the second room by J bombing, then settled into a V formation. The next few tactics were done and held well. We proceeded by forming a = formation. Although this room was just as tough as the last, we kept our heads up and did our best. This room was also a tie.
In the third room, we began by bombing E6, then settled into an X formation. We did a few more tactics then performed an EO (popcorn) waterfall. Our next formation was to surround the Stadium. We then did an E8+E9 bomb to the middle of the room. We ended strong with a J bomb and a GG to our competitors. PIC won this room.
Although we didn’t win this battle, Crimson Guardians did an amazing job getting this far and put a lot of effort into each and every part. This Cup was a learning experience for our army. We can expect to see some improvement come from what we’ve learnt during this time.
We’re proud and honored to have made it this far. Let’s do even better next time! Do you have any thoughts on the Challengers Cup or CG vs PIC? Let us know in the comments!
