[XCAPS20] ROUND8 FrozenStorm [Anarchy]/Strength/Growth vs Bolyarich [Demonology]/Anarchy/Balance

GL HF @bolyarich! I’m very concerned how this casting ultimates whenever will tilt this matchup, as I don’t think it works to my advantage!

My Thoughts

I actually foresee Max Anarchy being SUPER important to this map, and perhaps Gunship rush is going to be a big deal here. This is going to get super weird with Meta + Zane being a constant mid to lategame threat I should probably utilize Earthquake some and just be always on the lookout to chip buildings to set that up. We’ll see how important a tower looks as we move forward here.


You probably want to move this to the PbF subforum. I’d do it for you, but I seem to have lost the rights to do that somewhere along the way.

I think it’s worth to kill Vandy for two turns? Feels worth. Means Zane might come and beat up Rook, but cest le vie. I’d be in decent position to win a Gunship rush either way

My Thoughts

Still looking at Gunship rush. Need the tech2 down now though so Boly can’t make a tech1 break play. I’ll tech one earthquake in the hopes Rook either dies right now, or survives, and next turn probably teching Gunship x2 or Gunship + Earthquake. I’m taking down heroes like nobody’s business, which is definitely good for me

My Thoughts

Okay, Meta Zane is still an issue, but Earthquake is an issue for him also. So we’ll lay Arg out as a chump (don’t really need him this game, same w/ Boly and Midori), in front of Rook to try and ensure he survives, and play to break stuff with Earthquake. Gunship is the backup ace. I’m about a coin flip to draw an earthquake so let’s hope heads

That’s a slam dunk, let’s trash all three tech buildings and leave the board stacked. No Zane for next turn or the turn after, so with the techs down nothing immediate of concern. Should be GG


gg wp. @zhavier

GG WP @bolyarich! The max anarchy + t3 was a good play and timed well for ya, I caught a break w/ the earthquake draw though. Weird map!

Weird that aside from Max anarchy you guys didn’t cast any illegal ultimates. :). I think the extra hero timeout actually had more impact
