Hey guys,

I'd like to announce the ultimate battle of two OpenRA Red Alert titan nations:

Saturday, 26 August, 6:00 PM UTC live on https://www.twitch.tv/lorrydriverora

Team USA represented by Barf and Smitty
vs
Team Germany represented by kazu and Lorrydriver

We'll be playing a total of 3 best of fives:
1st match: Smitty vs kazu (first map: BBWD/Siberian Summer picked by Happy)
2nd match: Barf vs Lorrydriver (first map: A Nuclear Winter picked by Happy)
3rd match: 2 vs 2 (first map: Haos Ridges picked by Happy)

After the first matches it'll be loser's choice.

The 1vs1 map pool:
Behind the Veil 2
Sidestep
Pitfight
Borrowed Time
BBWD (Siberian Summer)
Duel Cold Front
Shadow Fiend
Ysmir
A Nuclear Winter
Sirocco
Warwind
Portent

The 2vs2 map pool features a couple of 3vs3 and 4vs4 maps, since every participating player is a fan of big boy maps:
Tandem
Doubles
Tournament Island
Tabula Rasa
Pie of Animosity
Haos Ridges
Great Sahara 2
Arctic Australia
Minor Pressure

The 1vs1 best of fives will be worth 1 point. The 2vs2 will be worth 2 points. So in case one nation loses both 1v1s, they could still tie the score by winning the 2vs2. In case of a tie, there will be a deciding match on the 2vs2 version of BIGGER MAP http://resource.openra.net/maps/17971/


I feel that you could be missing some of the action if you only watch it from my point of view, thats why there also will be a stream by my dear friend Raishiwi, where the games will be casted and analyzed.

I really hope you'll like this format and I look forward to seeing you guys on Saturday!

Super in depth analysis where we will label trolls and disturbers of peace.

Look at the flags on Wippes avatar do you think it is a german flag?

Another broadly-held prejudice about americans seem to be right hehe

And yes we are proud to be not proud on our flag.

1. I thought this tournament was Lorrydriver's idea, and wasn't specifically addressing Wippie in my post

2. I was just joking, riffing if you will, on the WW1/WW2 theme brought up by one of the Americans in the thread, and Wippie's, and others', use of cultural stereotypes

3. I'm not American so who's showing their prejudice now?

4. Just jokes buddy, apologies for any offence though
