Battle #2 in Lamers Ultimate Majority Guild Hall (Burning Isle)

LuM build: Ranger Spike
EW build: Mixed 2-Monk

  • LuM altered their build to Ranger Spike, while EW left theirs largely unchanged. Both teams rushed to the middle at the start of the match, where after some stiff fighting LuM suffered the initial losses.
     
  • LuM held strong for six minutes, but was eventually forced back into their base. EW held the flag for several minutes but dropped another member two minutes later. Despite their smaller force, EW kept up the pressure in LuM’s base and scored some good kills. They focused their firepower on player 1, which seemed to have paid off as he was knocked out by a death penalty.
     
  • LuM was forced to fight with a man down. At this point it became an even 7 vs. 7 match. EW continued to heap on the pressure but suffered additional losses. They kept a firm hold on the flag, earning plenty of morale boosts.
     
  • Victory or Death soon kicked in. EW again pinned down LuM’s NPCs in the lava, quickly finishing them off before moving on to slay the Guild Lord.

  • LuM forced EW back to their base and took control of the flag stand. Both sides fought fiercely at EW’s base for an extended clip, where EW scored kills on LuM.
     
  • Nearly half-an-hour from the beginning, EW drove the invaders from their base.
     
  • Victory or Death was called and LuM once gain pinned EW’s NPCs in the lava. As before, LuM methodically eliminated enemy NPCs and bullied EW back home. Five minutes is all it took for LuM to finish off the other team and their Guild Lord.
