Frankly, I found the win deserved.

A double bomb, which clearly describes as a gambit, urging fab to comply with, won.

That's called "knowing your enemy", and is, cliched as it may seem, the heart of strategy in many analyses, even The Art Of War.

Nothing fluke about it. A Trap was laid and duly sprung. Bravo.

We knew we'd get one, it is luck that we got all three when it mattered with no time for them to come back though. Anyone think there spawn times at end were weird though? After the triple kill.

Luck?

Three people failed to use listen mode before hoping over a wall.

Yes, Scootgar, everything that happens in matches is carefully planned strategy. You'll notice how people's strategies change throughout the match by listening to their commentary and, if we'd recorded voice, ours.

 

Anyway, the bombs were in the fountain (as in, inside of the fountain wall where you can't blow them up with gunfire but they can still kill you), and it was unfortunate timing and not divine ordinance that saw 3 of us use the passage between box and fountain as our escape route (having planned to sit back and defend for the last 30 seconds) at the same time.

Some nice gameplay footage. But I got a little irritated that one of your teammates dropped the N bomb for no reason.

Nuclear bombs are pretty scary

Hello everyone! I’m Scott Lowe, the newest addition to the community team at Naughty Dog.

It’s week two for me, so I’ve got a ton left to learn and get up to speed on. Nonetheless, I plan on posting on the forums as much as possible. You can also hit me up on Twitter, @ScottLowe, whether it’s to talk about games, the studio, or exchange GIFs. Beware, my GIF game is strong. -ND-ScottLowe
