Ladies and gentlemen, the moment you’ve all been waiting for is here!
Rakleader and Forsaken have finally agreed to play a best of eleven series, in what is shaping up to be the most widely anticipated series since the original Nauz vs Phobos challenge.https://www.warzone.com/Forum/550812-challenge-phobos-vs-nauz-megathread
For those of you who are unfamiliar with these players or their backstory, I present to you 'Forsaken x Rakleader: A Love Story'https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJNLJwXr12I
The concept here is quite simple, they'll play a best of 11 multi-day games from a selection of templates from the MTL, and the first player to win 6 games wins the challenge
The MTL uses the following templates: Atlantis, Australia, Baltic Sea, Basileia, Battle Islands V, Battle for Middle Earth, Belarus, Biomes of America, Black Sea, Blitzkrieg Bork, British Raj, Cat Fight, China, Discovery, EarthSea, Elitist Africa, Fast Earth, Final Fantasy 7, French Brawl, Georgia Army Cap, Great Lakes, Greater Middle East III, Greece LD, Guiroma, Hannibal at the Gates, Laketown, Landria, MA Battle Islands V, MME MA+LD Light Fog, Macedonia no split, Malvia, Master Mania, Numenor, Pangea Ultima, Phobia WR, Post-melt Antarctica, Randomized Strat ME, Saudi Arabia, Strat ME, Strat MME, Strategic Greece, Timid Lands, Tor-ture, Treasure Map, Turkey LD, Unicorn Island, Volcano Island, World of Warhammer, Yin'angzhou, Yorkshire Brawl.
The selection process is quite simple, each player has the option to ban up to 5 templates, before template selection. As the challenger, rakleader has agreed to allow Forsaken to select 6 of the 11 templates and he will select the remaining 5.
Min34 has graciously agreed to host a few livestreams where he will preview/review some of the games. The time and date of these streams will be announced in due course, we're also looking for people to join these streams and share their thoughts on the games, let me know if you're interested. https://www.twitch.tv/min34
We have also recruited 3 elite players to post in-depth analyses on the forum for each game, these players are: Jefferspin (1v1 and RTL trophy holder), Rufus (The WZ GOAT) and Texx (God Amongst Men).
Now let's get some predictions going.
If you want to participate, you only have to copy/paste the following questions and reply to this thread:
Is rakleader an elite player? (Why?)
Is Forsaken an elite player? (Why?)
Can this challenge run its course, or will one player disappear before they lose 6 games, if the latter, which player?
Who will win this challenge?
What will be the final score?
Who do you want to win?
Did you agree with Greece's decision to drop out of the Nations Cup?
Is Fogless Fighting strategic enough to warrant its Clan League 17 selection?
Do you think Phobos and Nauz will ever resume their bo11?
Marcus Aurelius, genius or idiot?
@Rak @Forsaken Please post your template selections on this thread and then we can get this challenge underway.
