SPOTLIGHT MATCHES

MATCH OF THE WEEK

PLAY OF THE WEEK

BLUNDER OF THE WEEK

TEAM OF THE WEEK

The Team of the Week award isn't necessarily given out to the best team every week... otherwise, the same team would get it every week! Instead, we pick teams that play well and more importantly surprise us with good all-around play and strategic planning. To view detailed statistics about any team, click on their heading.

ROUND 1 - WOLFPACK

One of the few low seeds to win this week, WP also pulled some quite nice strategies and tactics into their match. Highlights were the trow/ghol maneuver in game 1 which both brought their trow into the major battle and enabled their ghol to tag a flag, and the damaging of tna's own units with their warlock's fireball in game 2.

ROUND 2 - IRA DEI

After some poor showings early on in the tournament, pundits were predicting ID's quick exit in Round 2 when they met young up-and-comers Glue the Moose. However, in a dazzling display of coordination and reactive strategy, Ira Dei easily defeated their GtM opponents, running rings around the increasingly frustrated Moose.

ROUND 3 - SNAP, KRACKLE, DIE

If we were giving out 'Most Improved Since MWC98' awards, Snap, Krackle, Die! would walk away with a great big shiny trophy. While they obviously had a lot of fun in MWC98, their level of gameplay wasn't quite up there with the top orders and they were eliminated rather early on. This year, all that has changed; their playbook is crammed full of cunning ploys, coordinated attacks and excellent use of combined arms. This week, they showed off their stuff by defeating the formidable Evil Incorporated, an order with an illustrious history that stretches back into the glory days of Myth I. Their feat earns them this week's "Team of the Week" award.

ROUND 4 - DWARVEN ELITE STRIKE FORCE

After meeting with an early loss to Ascension in round one, the Dwarven Elite Strike Force went on a streak of conquering their opponents. Some were surprised as they went forth to eliminate Demo Clans United from the bottom bracket. Suspense grew as they went on to eliminate The Wight Foundation. Their final victory over Ira Dei was almost shocking, especially with the ID vs. GtM battle in such recent memory, and it proved to be enough to seal their claim on the "Team of the Week" award for round 4.

ROUND 5 - GLUE THE MOOSE

Glue the Moose are one of the more infamous teams participating in MWC99. A collection of strong-willed players from the halls of ranked bungie.net, we have seen their teamwork evolve and grow over the weeks as this motley crew have forged together into a formidable fighting force. This week, they faced off against Fellowship of Stoneheim and Snap, Krackle, Die ... two opponents who were completely undefeated a week before, with Snap even carrying a four-trow threat rating. This pair of great victories gives GtM the final Team of the Week award, as we move into the final few games of MWC99.
