Match report

As the match began, both teams rushed towards the Flag Stand and started a direct assault. In a full out battle, The Last Pride (EvIL) took an early lead by killing two Idiot Savant (iQ) players at the 1 minute mark, and 2 more shortly later. iQ resurrected and dove right back into the fray. They tried some strong Gale locks but couldn't get a kill.

At the 3 minute mark, iQ regrouped and made a strong push towards EvIL, forcing EvIL to fall back to their NPCs and regroup. EvIL grabbed their flag and forged forward, planting their flag and killing another iQ player in the process. EvIL kept advancing, pushing iQ hard, right back into the iQ base. iQ takes a second, resurrects their fallen teammates and regroups, surging out of their base at the 5 minute mark. iQ tried to retake the Flag Stand before EvIL's Morale boost, but EvIL blocked them and succeeded in getting their Morale boost at 5:20.

Fighting continued unabated at the Flag Stand for about 2 minutes, but EvIL slowly started to gain the upper hand, as they pushed iQ back to their own base. EvIL managed to kill all three of iQ's Monks, forcing iQ into a full retreat.

However, it was too close to the next respawn for EvIL to risk a full press into iQ's base, so they held back and worked on killing iQ's NPCs, instead. At 8 minutes, iQ made a desperate push out their back door. EvIL responded by splitting, and iQ had to send Monks back to deal with EvIL's split team. And with that maneuver, both iQ and EvIL were running split teams. Half of iQ continued the push towards EvIL's front base, and EvIL was able to defend successfully and kill four iQ players. At the 10 minute mark, one of iQ's Monks was already at 60% death penalty and thus couldn't respawn. That forced iQ to turtle in their base.

At 11:30, EvIL started the advance into iQ's base. EvIL took down one of iQ's remaining Monks just before the 12 minute respawn, waited for him to respawn, and killed him again. EvIL took down one of iQ's NPC Bodyguards at 12:30 and another at 12:50. iQ got one kill on EvIL, but the dead player was quickly resurrected, and EvIL continued the onslaught. By 13:20 iQ's entire party was dead, and EvIL turned on the Guild Lord, finishing the game at 13:40.
