Greetings everyone ^^

I played in my first Sealed touney a few days back and although I didn't win I had a ton of fun and I wanted to share the story of how I barely beat Stumblebee in the most exciting match I've ever played.

The battle was not going in my favor and I was only just barely holding my own for most of the map. Near the end stumble had control of nearly every resource and was only a few turns away from winning by control points. I had only 4 units left on the board. 2 heavy tanks that were advancing on his base, 1 fighter that was nearly dead and 1 artillery that was hiding in a corner. In a normal match, this would have surly meant defeat, but I still had one trick up my sleeve.

As my tanks made their way closer to his base I switched the direction of my fighter to join them. My tanks and fighter moved into range perfectly, I knew this turn that he could see my tanks and had several air units already in the field that would quickly move in to counter. I purchased two anti-air units and sprung my last trick, using airlift 3 (which was a last second change from what I had used in the previous match) I moved in both AA's and the arty, leaving me with 5 units total to try and burn down his base.

To my great surprise, the same turn I Airlifted these units in, he bought two fighters that were in perfect range. The details get a little fuzzy after that, but having spent all his resources on two now dead fighters, there was not much of a fight put up. 3 or 4 turns of beating on his base and an assured loss turns into a very jank win!

The Morale of the Story: Sometimes a desperate move can make all the difference. Never give up and never surrender!

You're lucky I had to leave after that game anyway.

If I didn't I wouldn't have lost. ;) Had a very good chance of winning the entire thing otherwise. :D

Still though. Didn't expect that strat. That was a pretty good one. Smart times with the AA.

Also, I'm really impressed you had the resources for all of that.
