Hey guys!
Welcome to the 14th edition of Clan League. I have the honour to keep score for Division B, for as long as you don't vote me out!
I could have started this thread a long time ago, but I choose today as there's the first finished game of CL14! Congrats to Boiz Army for what looks like a non join. As we're the division with Blitz we need this thread ready for when they start booting.

I truly wish you all good luck and, most importantly, have fun.

I massaged AI. I believeh e is clan leade.r. Love that guy

- Reasonably low boot rate


I'm good with that

- Main accounts ONLY


I'm good with that

- Skill level above rubbish (Please read our linked strategy guide. We can't accept guys being to lazy to make a 6th pick in autogames.)


I'm good with that, I watched the guide

- No weirdos like ladder stallers or speedy booters


I'm good with that, learned many techniques from fellow M"Hunter

- Explicitly NO level prerequisite. We are open for determined newbies


Perfect for me

I spent years practicing my ability to lose and get angry

- Playing RoR and being #ELITE! with nubs

Hot Jings!
The guys far smarter than me have made a script and literally, O.M.G. The output is beautiful


3v3 Europe

sb, forksandwich, DrApe defeated FALSTAFF, ARand0mPlayer, _ - https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=25971263

Just the one game finishing here, even though 3 were created at the same time. Just remember folks, there's no prize for finishing first, and slow playing the first games causes a high game load later on.

Here, everybody mirrored in their teams, even both teams matching the classic 1,2, islands.
There we differed, MH going for Denmark and a high Germany counter with 101st preferring Switzerland and the centre.
Picks happen and looking at it from 101st perspective. You can't be unhappy with that, yes _'s picks (yes, that is their game name) has a bordered pick, a counter pick in Karelia and a holiday resort in Bologna but his best pick is Iceland. With full deploys he can hold up whichever player is in Ireland and gets on top if a teammate can also challenge the player in Ireland. Otherwise, they have to like the centre, they crammed their picks there and gain its reward. ARand0mPlayer coming up tops with the FTB Austria.
From MH side, from Bucharest to Cern is a foggy mess, but they're not so far away they can't get there. DrApe has possibilities for income with Ireland, Portugal, or even BG, SB a lovely lucky baltic combo and Fork a clear Danish take.

- Turn One
Falstaff goes hard on Russia expecting the two MH picks to have done something, but finds nothing
_ goes hard on Ireland, finding a sleeping DrApe
ARand0mPlayer takes his spots
Meanwhile MH choose baltic, Norway and BG
Income advantage +3 101st

-Turn Two
DrApe takes his BG but loses Ireland, not a loss when SB covers iceland from Norway and DrApe gets into Belgium as compensation
ARand0mPlayer takes Finland but finds himself sandwiched between both the sets SB took
Falstaff keeps the drive into Russia
_ clears Ireland but loses a man in Belgium
Fork hammers into Slovakia for no cigar as it's not being taken
MH over swing the Income advantage coming out +2

Turn 3
_ completes Ireland but the only contribution to the fight comes from sending 1 to support Finland
SB and Falstaff dance in Russia, advantage SB as he's playing with less deploy
Falstaff moves on Belgium to challenge DrApe, this plays into MH hands as it's one less neutral for DrApe to take to get back into the game with BG
Fork moves his stack to border Czechia
Surprisingly no breaks in Finland vs Norway+Baltics
101st swing back 2 on the income leaving it all square

Turn 4
_ goes hard in Iceland but doesn't manage to take, countering the counter that never came costing 3 income next turn.
Falstaff wins Russia, but gains no income and his new dance partner Fork moves across to Kostroma.
Fork smashes Czechia unopposed for a break
DrApe goes greedy adding Portugal and Belgium for a big income advantage
FalStaff deploys hard against Belgium, but does nothing, defending his +2 and maintaining a double border into Belgium
ARand0mPlayer swings and miss in Baltic but doesn't even hit Norway. I hate to say high level games come down to guesses but they got this one wrong. Norway won't hold vs Iceland+Finland, but then neither will baltic hold vs Lenningrad but it did. SB firing back with enough delays and taking a decisive break of Finland.

MH power ahead on income with an extra 11 deploy for next turn.

Turn Five
101st level it out, taking back Lenningrad to load the gun against baltic, breaking Belgium, breaking Norway income levels out to +1MH but there are definitely more MH troops on the map and MH definitely has safer bonuses going forward.
Fork chooses to fight in Russia and holding SK, HU, CZ for no deploy
DrApe goes hard to the centre
SB goes hard in N Norway, for no gain against a ARand0mPlayer who saw it coming.
Falstaff loses a stack
_ completes Iceland and breaks Norway, but is at T5 it already feels late to the party

Turn Six
The end of all things. DrApe retakes a now safe Belgium and breaks the Swiss
Fork stays safe in the centre and adds a Russian holding
SB stacks up to fend off elimination long term and be able to block the baltic/Finland
_ breaks the Baltic and moves on Denmark but it's too late, they are cleaning up the party and his teammates are passed out on base income.

3v3 Europa Magna

lineal2012, Vindude, Easyfragger defeated Ze, Oversea, Zev - https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=26038535

Knowing far less about this template, like most us(!), the commentary will be a bit less knowledgeable, a bit less accurate.
VIWs picks end up with far more income than FC (a full 5 deploy for T1)
VIW add another income advantage for T2, these early deployment advantages count for so much more than later game.
Looking closely, choosing a -2 for #1 pick when there are two A sets seems poor. Even to take the uncontested Mesopotamia and block the start is a slow play and not a #1 pick.
For FC they managed to pick get their 4, 5, 5 picks. Not picking deep a sure sign of different strategy and coming out with a loss suggests a change is needed.
Contrasting to VIW with 8, 9, 3
However, getting your shallowest pick of 1,2,3 can also be amazing. Vindude slots his combo and hits 11 income
EasyFragger also shooting his combo for a +11.
That's 11 troops more for VIW for the start of T2.

Turn Two
Vindude slams Ibossim but too hard and allows Carthage to be countered.
EasyFragger slams into Ze in Denmark, who blocks in Germany but retains a -1 for board position
And some general growth goes on across the board
FC coming back to within 2 on income/turn

Turn 3
FC drop a full 4 blockades. They're keeping the income close with the slash and burn game play but board positions are being lost and there's already that 13 income disadvantage from picks
EasyFragger going like a tank on this one and taking what anything close
Lineal and Oversea picking the same border to stack and attack and only tumbleweed seen on the Egyptian border

Turn Four
Lineal makes the same play with a break this time, Oversea taking a break from Egypt net 0
But Carthage falls, and +2 for VIW
EasyFragger shows their full power and nothing stands against it. FC losing in all skirmishes while they have a safe Egypt+Mesopotamian it's not developed and it's not enough. GG VIW

Every public game of Europa Magna increases the playing standard of all who play, all who review and all who spy them out. We'll be expecting closer matches soon!

1v1 Malvia

SerFen defeated Sandokan - https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=26399422

I think you could spend more time examining that one than they played it! Sadly, I know nothing of this map. Sandokan taking an easy +1 but Serfen with a better counter of a +2. T2 a predict from Sandokan misses as Serfen holds in the NW and hastily plan C of a +4 in the east goes into effect. Serfen adding to their income advantage. It remains level in T5, with Serfen having more troops on the board but Sandokan misses a 2nd predict looking for Serfen's income.
Turn Six and Serfen lands the killing blow, eliminating Sandokan from the NW.

1v1 Strat ME

BellRO defeated Mr.Carpenter - https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=26431259

Fairly equal picks, each looking at board the same way, with Mr.Carpenter preferring mutual support/clustering and BellRo liking a safe East China. They take income in two, always critical!
And turn 3 BellRO makes a killing play into Antartica. The block in T4 just pens in Mr.Carpenter, as long as he can remain alive in the Scan/WR fight BellRO looks in good position. And check out that last move t4. 5 v 4, very close to a regional elimination and winning the game for Mr.Carpenter. They play on, it's not decided by this point but the player adding W China compared to S Africa has the advantage. There's a good Svalbard block and Mr C's stack starts the march on WC but T13 it turns back. Turn Twelve BellRO's order delay card finishing the fight as he swallows the stack guarding Southern Africa.

Lord Syvedyas defeated Emu Pub - https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=26431257

I think the script picked up the wrong game? Are we sure this is B? That's not the Emu that regularily beats me drunk, maybe that was the problem! To be fair to Emu, he's a high chance to complete. But Lord Syvedyas has no gain for the extra spot in europe, it doesn't set up a T3 completion.
Turn Three
We get to where we all expected to be at the end of T2 and they're playing at a good speed.
Turn Four
Emu decides there's nothing in WR and heads to Asia
Lord Syvedyas decides it's about time to finally try and take WR
Certainly putting the breaks on Emu as his stack is wrong footed.
Turn Five
Emu thinking Lord has WR with combo from CR and moves into CR. He's met by a neutral 4 start and rewarding with no double border. He plows on in T5 to get a double border, taking the 4 neutral in his stride. But Lord has been pumping out an extra man for a while and with WR added and Caucasus being watched over, the time is ticking on Emu's chances
T7 Emu takes West US to level the income, but loses stack power in the Russias, doesn't get a cheeky break with his 2 probes but Lord has found West Africa.
There's a nice smash of a block in Venezuela by Lord in T10 that truly finishes the game, East US will not be overrun by Emus

1v1 Biomes of Americas

Phobos defeated Andre Laufmöller - https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=26511921


Aargh! I hate this base 0 setting :) But these players must have trained for it, dreamed of it and dare i say it, enjoyed it? Sadly, it's the first game lacking any gg.
Phobos takes an early lead with his California uncontested set backed up by his French Quebec cedar plantation, while Andre preferred the rainforests and a couple of islands. Phobos pushes his margins in a tight game and duly comes on top

Weekly updates? You'd better believe it! #HastagBlessed

Top of the script and top of my heart is
3v3 Europe

Enkeveh, sanjo91, Johnnygoodboy defeated Maxbag, Phaeril, Wazz - https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=25971264

Oh dear FC.
Both teams going for a mirror, with perhaps the odd mistake that doesn't seem planned, at least it doesn't show for any gain. Both teams knowing FTB Denmark is worth it at #1, especially so with the counters being so far away (3 turns)
But then we walk in the wild. Picking goes AabBCccCBbaA or A12BC33CB21A or any way you wish to write it, but who ever loses first pick gets the next two. On 3v3 Europe ladder settings when you choose FTB Denmark you slot #2,#3 in the islands, you lose Denmark you gain the islands. It's classical picking, it's the best picking. Here it doesn't actually effect the game as they got Denmark they'll always lose the islands but had they lost out Denmark the game would be over on picks.
If you can find a way to beat islands it you need to bring home the _W_ and here FC did not. They chose the motherland Russia tactic. Which can be good, but more of a 456 and here NE Russia is in the game and needs to be taken, and baltics and finland and belarus and it's not looking you'll be able to block out the East enough to score all the income fast enough and safe enough.
But they try, I'll even go ahead and crown somebody the Tsar

Turn 1
Lu Fredd start with the islands = 6 and scattered picks across the board, no BG and no Portugal nor Denmark
FC obviously with Denmark, BG, Portugal. = 9 but BG taking a few turns

Lu Fredd's start require a defender against motherland Russia and with Maxbag stuck holding the centre it is left for Enkeveh to take the call and moves up on Vologda. That + Leningrad really control the board out there.
sanjo91 doubles up taking out Austria to make Switzerland a bit safer
Johnnygoodboy taking the call to defend SK and worry CZ, HU

FC starts force the taking of Denmark in one, losing Austria when Lu Fredd go all in there
Wazz defends the Baltics which has to look a bit suspicious but Enkeveh has moved off
Maxbag blocking out CZ for a hold

Turn Two

Enkeveh can do nothing about the suspicious stack in the baltics that duly takes Belarus, some good intel work should pick up what's going on there. Enkeveh can and does camp WC Russia as Johnny is expelled. The French not having diplomatic immunity in Maxbag's Russia!
Phaeril adds Belgium and sets up BG but is immediately met with Sanjo at a double border.
Sanjo and Enkeveh add their islands
Maxbag and Johnny trade blows in Czechia
FC with initial income advantage +9 v +6, but half the nine doesn't border the enemy and Belgium has a double border to solve

Turn 3
Phaeril takes the safer BG giving up Belgium, MVP neutral killer Mr P!
Enkeveh changes from being the Russian aggressor to driving hard on Denmark. They'll really know 3/4 Phaeril's starts and should be placing him on BG. This is good play setting up a 2v1 opportunity and also good play as they avoid a fight with Wazz, as long as they can win before Wazz wins solo they're doing good. Enkeveh also manages to add a safe Balkans +3 knowing only Max stuck on base and stuck with a Johnny on his back is anywhere nearby.
Wazz sets up Baltics and moves north, seems a bit defensive but it's safe play, you haven't poured 3 starts into Belarus to lose in this fast.
Max and Johnny seeing just how far they stay on base. The centre really was avoided this game
Income levels out, but the coming 2v1 and Wazz's cluster start and lack of input are hurting FC

Turn 4
This looks a well orgainised turn by Lu Fredd
They get Northern Norway right, so right they probably know it's Max on base beside
They get southern Norway right
They march on the triple BG border with Johnny topping up Sanjo
They fix Belgium ready for a take next turn
Enkeveh avoids the coming stack and gets a free pass into Udmurtia, he's just buying time, no deploy needed and Russia is still not a threat

For FC it's also a better turn, but it can't go right playing 2v3 when they enemy know what's up
Max sets up Portugal, runs in Czechia but is found out in N Norway
Wazz finally starts moving to the centre to take over from Max and get into the game, he adds baltics and has a lovely empire
Phaeril goes hard for Norway but not hard enough, Lu Fredd know your 4 starts, they have your number mate!

Incomes are still level but it's the same story, we're looking at another turn of 2v3 Udmurtia being safe

Turn Five
Southern Norway a tight hold, but when it's a tight hold here you allow your teammate to take an uncontested Belgium. Sanjo also arriving at Walachia and the death of all things Bulgarian.
Enkeveh keeps a hold in Russia but Wazz has caught up and next turn will be tight
Johnny throws himself under Wazz but a turn of delay here is great for Lu Fredd long term
Max with a checky elimination attempt in Russia but we all know your on base; don't do that ;-)
Wazz starting to call themselves a Tsar and setting up W Russia.

Turn Six
It's still remarkably tight, we'll end this turn tied on income 31=31
But Wazz is finding his teammates heavier and heavier to carry. BG dies, allowing Denmark to survive a few turns more, but Phaeril is in a death spiral. He'll be able to tie up some Enkeveh income but isn't a threat.
Maxbag takes Portugal but his other starts are no use. His Russia holdings to be taken by Wazz and his Czechia start not much use to anyone but Wazz. A slog to Freistaat Bayern and stack what he can is the best i can see for him, but is it helping their cause?
Wazz adds 4 more in Russia, and eliminates Enkeveh!! Hurrah!! Until Enkeveh immediately reappears in Karelia with access to the powerful triple, quad and cintiqo borders! Max might have been better blocking out this easy route for Enkeveh back into Russia
Johnny with not many options at least poses the question to Wazz as he moves towards Belarus


Turn Se7en
WarZone is a game of questions. The more questions you pose to the enemy, the more times they get it wrong. For FC they have one route to win, motherland Russia, Wazz running solo. But they have two questions, is it Enkeveh from the north or Sanjo from the south? Enkeveh has far better multiple options with the powerful multi borders. Sanjo looking at a single border.
FC and Wazz don't get it right, Sanjo gets his solo border to Brest and Enkeveh cracks Denmark. Wazz gets a big stack a turn away from a solo Norwegian border. Lu fred getting game winning positions.
I said in T6 that Max shouldn't be doing anything with WCR and it should be left for Wazz. At the end of T7 Max has 11 income and doesn't border an enemy. FC will be ahead 1 income at the end of this turn but Max is sending postcards and giving the troops R+R. Lu Fredd have managed the game very well to keep Wazz then Max out of it. Now they even have elimination chances of Phaeril

Would turn 8 go better if Wazz had another +3? If he had another set of delays? Well, attacking 2nd move probably not. But Sanjo is there with the questions. Sanjo had first move, would he run to Podlassie and triple border, or Zhitomir and double border? FC have seen how Lu Fredd played and they imagine he would, but Lu Fredd keep their stategy mixed with a hold and late attack. Belarus breaks and a fantastic guess in Austria adds icing to the cake. Sanjo adds Switzerland 7 turns after making it safe, and sets up a safe BG.
A decent match up
Poor

Week 2 of a very long CL season, will I remain looking better than you let's fight? Not a chance!!

3v3 Europa Magna

pip, Banana, SerFen defeated lineal2012, Vindude, Easyfragger - https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=26219837

Gotta love a bit of INSS teamplay, some of the hardest picking around. And with Magna being new to many of us there's a lot of play testing going on. Here VIW went for a good spot, good combo and block routine.
Easyfragger going 1,2 is powerful assuming he gets his one, but is Paraitonion even close to a 2 pick when it's just blockaded? Turns out Easy doesn't get his first pick and so his first on board pick is a -3
Vindude going for a more classical 1,2 in the black set of Italia, getting half. He also goes for a nice backup C set combo in the NE.
Lineal another 1,2 Black set and bordering, but Galatia Et Cappadocia (B set) is worth a 2nd pick and he gets his combo
1:3 combos does not a win make

Blitz Spread the black sets, Pip in the Italia combo sharing half with Vindude
Pip and Banana going 1,2,3 in the others.
Of the 5 black A set picks, Blitz get 3
Of perhaps the 2nd best sets, the E sets VIW get 2 to Blitz's 1
Blitz however do pick up a combo block with Illyria

But what does the board look like after picks?
VIW have got limited knowledge of the board, Vindude has a very slow 3 turn take to get 2 income and is else wise stuck
EasyFragger has a good spain and french start, but has a -3 that needs to counter Egypt
Lineal far ahead of their teammates with his combo and a nice Germany minor to counter Germany Major.
For Blitz the board is a bit better,
Pip starts on 2 but has FTB for no deploy +2
Banana has the East, two B sets when he wants and Egpyt, i like these 3
SerFen Africa is a good start with a fight to come in Germany

Turn One
Everyone does sensible stuff and 4 blockades from poor sets reduce civilization. The barbarian neutrals are retaking the board!
Even a sensible gift in Italia to get their other player into the game
Each team has the intel the NE C set is shared, each retreat and block with a spare to leave it with 8.

I like VIW's position but already Vindude is massively the short runner

Turn Two
Vindude makes the most of their minor holdings, advances in his slow safe +2 and blocks Carthage hard. Certainly looks to have needed a blockade there, I doubt Corsica holds and if Carthage attack was blocked you're going nowhere anyway.
Easy does the best they can in Alexandria, takes a card piece and blocks but only 8 is not the set destroying heartache in MME. Italia is again gifted with Easy the third VIW to hold it in 3 turns.
Lineal passively watches Germany Major get away but gets good growth
Blitz and Banana gets the most kills possible in Alexandria, leaving a small blockade to deal with and moving to 11 income
Pip fires late into Corsica for an easy break
SerFen works Thracia but his greed costs him carthage.

VIW have the income advantage here, but i like Blitz's position. There's not much needed for significant revenue swings

Turn Three
Third turn in a row that VIW gift Italia, it's a game of musical chairs and it's back to the original owner. I'm sure they were expecting to defend with +8 next turn but nobody told Vindude that Banana is counting and waiting. Aktau is Blitzed away and already Vindude is an elimination prospect.
Lineal finally uses his great income and slams the single Blitzman holding Germany Major. and is met by a blockade. Last turns hold has cost the chance of getting a +2, momentum was lost. The blockade of 12 isn't insurmountable but that's 9 free troops working for Blitz. Germany Minor is also added and Lineal is the game's biggest army
With no enemy Easy takes another +2 set and advances toward Carthage and the fight, the 2nd biggest player.
With the two biggest players have VIW set themselves up? I do not think so, this template has a sanction card, this template has +6 base and they are not going to finish the game with 3 teammates also costing them card pieces.
Blitz count out Vindude's slow trek across the steppes and counter, i guess it could be argued they over edged but Banana had nowhere else to drop a man, they start chipping away at the 8 in Alexandria.Pip works Corsica and SerFen grows

Turn Four
Vindude blocks his last territory and starts to run his commander, but by running he also gives up 2 income to the enemy holding 3/4 A set Italia.
Lineal pushes back against the barbarian hordes and borders Banana's +2 from either side.
Easy adds another +2 and tops up his border stack.
There's nothing here I see as bad play, but there's no questions being asked of Blitz. The Media Magna being approached from both sides, Blitz can't defend it but they'll turn it into a Lineal counter otherwise just small stacks. Blitz are going to take out Vindude and there isnt a plan to get more borders on Pip (Massalia). The fog covers so much of the map, but they do have the income and a large Spainish/French/German empire.
Blitz, Pip going for blood with Vindude, Banana growing and takes Alexandria and Serfen growing and supporting Corsica. Their board position, equal income and growth prospects are looking great!

Turn Five
Vindude's options are now limited to the chat box
Lineal gets it wrong and doesnt kill Banana's stack but does get the break and adds 4 income
Easy drops a tonne on the border and gets rewarded with a stack kill

Pip gets a kill badge but fires his stack off for no reason, i can't think of any scenario that works. Why would Easy not deploy 2 turns in a row? If you have intel you have to know where they are, Easy has nothing useful to take, pairs of +1's or slow take C sets.
SerFen starts growing like he's already got the win
Banana guesses right with his stack but is a little short and doesn't break through with 3 more delays he could have. But on these settings there's very little point. He breaks the +2 and gets -2 for his efforts, net swing none!

End of this round and Blitz are 3 matching Princes with 13 each. Only 5 ahead but we're about to see a sanction knock 5 more off the income and the board is Blitz's for growth.

Turn Six
For a moment i thought Banana had played it right and held onto Rhaga with his stack, but no an aggressive attack that will gain net nothing was made. There's no need for solo heroics here, follow through the 3v2, card piece them to death.
SerFen leeches like a plague all around him sending 6 to Corsica where he does something for the war effort
Pip does the only thing he can with his kill stack and takes S italy.
VIW fightback with a block of Ibitha/Ibossim and transfer their stack to pressure Carthage. Move order lines them up perfectly for next time. Lineal hammers Banana but finishes the turn with a case of the just one more man syndrome.

Turn Se7en.
We're here, it's been going since early, some say the picks but finally the game can be called for Blitz. They get Banana's spot, they chip away at Easy's stack the simple and standard whoever commands the most troops wins, starts to bite. Blitz finish the turn +11 with a 2v1 to retake carthage an an unchallenged +2 to come.

1v1 Malvia

We ride! defeated pignouf71 - https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=26399421

This looks like a game for the mathematicians. We Ride! gets his first 4 picks and his first four picks give more and faster income than pignouf71's. Pignouf71 also got his first four picks, but still ended up with 2 counters, but crucially, each counter knocking on a single border and not supplying any income till halfway through the match. Well picked We Ride

1v1 Guiroma

Bbraw defeated René Descartes - https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=26482858

Blink and you miss it. Rene plants his whole game plan on NORTH ITALY. He knows it isnt safe from the picks and goes, NORTH ITALY FTB. Fantastic income, if he can just predict every turn until he breaks Aventicum this one is in the bag. And just remember, Random move order <evil!>
Turn 2
Bbraw goes for the hold and gains as 5's smack him, gaining back all the extra income Rene has and more. NORTH ITALY holds.
Turn 3
Bbraw goes for a late hit managing to out delay master Rene but it isn't enough, but another kill gained. NORTH ITALY holds.
Turn 4
Rene forgets the game hinges on NORTH ITALY and does something in Thracia. NORTH ITALY doesn't hold.
GG chaps

1v1 French Brawl

DrApe defeated lineal2012 - https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=26549569
#Master [QB] defeated Bbraw - https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=26549567

Maybe if I spend a day looking through these i'll be able to say something better than. Jeez, those territory names are fair weird with all them numbers. I could tell you which I've been to, couple of holidays in the north, a road trip from Spain to Italy. And I once flew to Berlin, and got a lift to Warsaw via the PARIS RING ROAD. For our geographically challenged friends (much like the driver!!) that was the WRONG way!

So, it seems very close on DrApe's game. But it's base 4 and very much a low income gain. Every man needs to count and DrApe is playing in the wrong division. DrApe takes a close game showing the power of hitting them after they hit you

Much like DrApe should be in A so should Masters! #Master [QB] finds himself in B and proceeds to play better and 16minute faster than Bbraw. QB's covering starts giving the early advantage that Braw's board position doesn't bring.
