Phrawger vs Caralad, Round 1
Phrawger wins, 4:3
I was expecting Troq, and had practiced this just enough to think it'd be fun. It's a lot less fun vs Rook!
Such low normals for the entire game, I got tilted. Also didn't help that I got schooled.
Rook is the counterpick for Rook, confirmed. Pretty close game, I had a string of 4 attacks that worked that I liked.
PERFECT. Cara's hand was weak to K and I had a few very successful guesses and well-timed special blocks. I have never felt more alive.
No blocks in my opening hand!! Turns out when you have to play erratically, it's harder for the opponent to figure out what you're doing.
I'm no good at Rock Armor, which cancelled out Cara's unfortunate RTD.
Extraordinarily tense match. Down to the wire, Cara was extremely careful re: Ace management but I got all four in the end. Ended up running out his whole hand and Q'd for the win.
GGS, Caralad. Fantastic playing and I really enjoyed all the matches beginning with the Rook mirror. (I'm not too proud to admit I had some salt from the Oni game.)
