Needle and I have decided to post screenshots of our match here on the forum. Everything will be on a two round delay so that any comments will not impact the games.

Hello Uniwarriors, welcome to this final. We think it might be interesting for you to be able to follow the two games quasi live and hope you enjoy it. Cheers!

Preparation:

I found four high level replays of Khralean vs Khralean battles on this map from previous rounds of the Uniwarriors tournament:

Round 4 - Fobos_rus vs Simsverd
Round 4 - Needle vs Willingham
Round 7 - uniKZ vs Red Five
Round 7 - Needle vs SnakeHK

I also played four practice games with my training partners, Willingham and GOUT.

EVR1022 vs Needle



The starting credits on this map are 300, which gives Blue a difficult choice: start with a Swarmer, while knowing that Red will be able to build a Garuda on his first two turns, or build nothing and save. Fobos and Needle (in round 4) built Swarmers in round one. However, in round 7 Needle opted to save his credits for a second round Garuda. uniKZ did likewise. After some testing, I also concluded that this was the best option for Blue.

Needle vs EVR1022



An interesting note: Red cannot use undo here to discover how Blue played his first turn. He simply doesn't have enough vision. So I had to wait until round two to find out how Needle opened. But regardless of his opening I was planning to build a Garuda.

Preparation: I played this matchup already twice in that tournament, now this is the third time! In the same tournament! K vs K! This is just pain. But on the other hand, I have won practice and dont need to train beforehand.

EVR1022 vs Needle, round 1


As red K with 450 credits in the first round, I also choose to build a garuda first.

Needle vs EVR1022, round 2


As blue K, after I have saved my 300 credits of round one, I have 550 credits now and also decide to build a garuda.

EVR1022 vs Needle, Round Two
Blue units: none
Blue credits: 550c

Red units: Garuda
Red credits next round: 350c



Look familiar? Same opening as Needle. Built a Garuda on the lower forward base. Not ready to break the symmetry quite yet

Needle vs EVR1022, Round Two
Blue units: Garuda
Blue credits next round: 450c

Red units: Garuda
Red credits: 350c



I advanced my Garuda as far as I thought it safe, and built another. Note: next turn I will not be able to build a Garuda. It will be a choice between a Swarmer or saving my credits.

EVR1022 vs Needle, Round Two

Moved my garuda into the center, saying hello to blue.

Needle vs EVR1022, Round Three

EVR1022's garuda is even nearer to my bases than I am to his in the other game. I did nothing but building another garuda.

This is awesome. And God do I need help in KvK... Truly an awesome thing for you guys to give to the community. Even after the game was totally over this would've been sweet. To have it on a few turns delay is even sweeter, makes me feel like I'm following it live

EVR1022 vs Needle, Round Three
Blue units: Garuda
Blue credits: 450c

Red units: Garuda x2
Red credits next turn: 250c



I built a second Garuda and started acquiring some space.

Needle vs EVR1022, Round Three
Blue units: Garuda x2
Blue credits next turn: 350c

Red units: Garuda x2
Red credits: 250c



I repositioned my units and saved some credits. This gives me the option of either building a Garuda or two Swarmers next turn.

EVR1022 vs Needle, Round Three

I decided not to save credit like EVR1022 did but built a swarmer while placing the second garuda in the center.

Needle vs EVR1022, Round Four

I built my third dragon, now Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion are out to fight with me the game of Uniwarrior thrones.

EVR1022 vs Needle, Round Four

Blue units: Garuda x2
Blue credits: 350c

Red units: Garuda x2, Swarmer
Red credits next turn: 250c



Needle took an aggressive stance here, and the dice didn't favor trying to punish that stance, therefore I stayed out of range of his Swarmer and built another Garuda.

Needle vs EVR1022, Round Four

Blue units: Garuda x3
Blue credits next turn: 250c

Red units: Garuda x2
Red credits: 500c



After saving 250c from last turn I had the option to build another Garuda or two Swarmers. Given the aggressive stance taken by Needle I opted for the stronger front line provided by the Garuda. A Swarmer would need to be hidden, which would've made my position very passive.

No change, I saved my credits for the next turn: Either a garuda, 2 swarmers or a wyrm

Also in this game I decided to save my credits.
