Summer APL Final Game #1
August 21, 1999
HEADLINE!!: SN def TBWA 1-0
- TBWA – Acolyte, Nano, Etern, Guess
- ZULU – Astrok, Access Denied, SilverSpider, Nanaman
After about 2 minutes into the game… Viper crashed the Arena with no team having the upperhand.. After an hour or so we restarted..
The game was tough… Perhaps the toughest game ever.. TBWA and SN were at a complete stalement for 45 minutes… However in those 45 minutes much was to be said.. SN had a strong flag run going, they made it past 3/4 the map with all 4 SN’s protecting it looked like a sure cap… However 1 TBWA was able get in front before entering the bridge to the red area and killed of 2 SN’s stalling them, enabling TBWA to return their flag back to base.
More stalement fighting took place, however the whole game AD and SS were warping the entire game. (not blaming anyone) 🙂
It was so bad, I (Guess) asked the game to be called.. Not the fault of either of them but perhaps ten or the arena. Nana wanted to continue, so we played (fighting 4 SN’s) and 2 ghosts 🙂
Overtime began.. a few minutes into overtime, I saw SN with our flag suddenly already over 1/2 back to their base, at the time I had no idea what happened tried to stop it but died.. SN scored.. AD who had warped across the map which the ref saw and we replayed with 20 minutes on the clock.. 15 minutes of which were ovetime minutes. More of same happened. SN grabbed our flag and took off scoring 1-0.. TBWA went full offensive with 2 1/2 minutes left.. Killed the SN defenders and looked like a perfect run.. However SN had 3 perfect respawns deplating the flag run to tie it up….
TBWA outscored SN almost the entire match with each SN under 10 points..up until the final few minutes..This was a tough tough game, especially with the warping thing:( Hopefully tomorrows game will be different..

Summer APL Game #10
August 1, 1999
HEADLINE!!: TBWA def ZULU 3-0
- TBWA – Etern, Acolyte, Nano, Guess
- ZULU – Iginest, Wizard, Baron, Parrot (Bantu)
ALl thru the house, not a creature was stirring not even a mouse.. BEEEEEEP! BEEEEEEP! BEEEEEEP! *Nano turns off alarm*.
TBWA gathered in their town to face up against the big bad ZULU warriors for the second time this season. With a shock lost in the first encounter, everyone was well prepared with a last minute drill session just before the game.
As we started play Guess and Aco double teamed Igi right away, to hand Igi the first death of the game. Aco then doubled back on defense with Etern, as Nano and Guess made their charge into the ZULU base. Guess grabbed the flag and with the help of Nano breezed past the ZULU defense up until the half way mark. However respawns started to catch up and Guess was killed. Nano finished off the respawns and proceeded to complete the flag run with the cover of Etern and Aco below to give us a lightning quick 1-0 lead.
ZULU then went on an offensive charge keeping 3 bubbles busy at base while Nano slipt behind to grab the flag. Just as he reached halfway however respawns caught up too soon and the TBWA cover couldn’t get there in time.
Again Nano made another flag attempt with the cover of Guess, this flag run also manage to get halfway before respawns caught up and killed them both. However Etern and Aco were on the scene fighting off the ZULU rescue attempt. Etern died but gave Aco enough of a break to make the flag grab and kill off a ZULU in the process. The rest of TBWA then respawned to surround Aco and give him a nice comfortable journey the rest of the way for the 2-0 lead about 12 mins into the game.
The next 5 or so mins was scrimmaging between the two teams until Nano made a break for the flag. It looked like certain death when 3 respawned ZULU’s surrounded him however Guess flashed onto the scene allowing Nano enough cover to double back and move along the bridge. By the time he had left the bridge Guess had killed off 2 ZULU defenders and killed the wounded one that was following Nano. Then with the cross cover of Etern and Aco, TBWA brought the flag back for the 3-0 win with about 9mins left.
This was a perfect game for us and we all worked really well together. An enormous turn around on the previous result! Good Job! Also special thanks to Day, Prun and ID for being awesome subs in TEN chat 🙂

Summer APL Game #8
July 25, 1999
HEADLINE!!: TBWA def Jade 3-0
- TBWA – Shiva, ID, Atomic, Etern
- Jade – Guile, Pain, FLWar, (Cosmo)
The game started and TBWA went on offense and was able to kill off the Jade squad, atomic grabbed the flag and the rest of TBWA held jade off. About 1/2 of the way home a cheater came in and nuked the game:(
Luckily Gortex was here now and a new game restarted. Before the game started Jade lost one of their players (Cosmo) he couldn’t play so Jade was stuck with a 3 on 4. The game began, TBWA once again rushed offense, Shiva and Etern broke in and Etern picked the flag with Shiva guarding.. as they met up with ID and Atomic for the full escort around mid way and scored the 1-0 lead.
The next round Shiva snuck around 2 attacking Jades and grabbed the flag. Shiva ended up killing one, but she got smokey from the second attacker, just as the TBWA rescue squad came along to give her the TBWA style escort home 🙂
The 3rd flag run wasnt as fast as the 1st two runs with all of Jade playing Defense. TBWA took off, but got popped after some fighting in the Jade base. Finally Atomic rushed in and grabbed the flag while TBWA shooting up the Jade defense. The escort was going good about 1/2 of the way back 2 jade got ahead of the run 1 picked up the TBWA flag an attempted to the kill Atomic with flag, ID along with the rest of TBWA guarding him 😐 but died in doing so. Etern grabbed the remaining flag and took it to base, then noticed a Jade an inch away from Atomic while he was smoking, Etern quickly ran in front of the attacking Jade and Atomic and Etern killed the last Jade for the 3-0 win.
Summer APL Game #7
July 24, 1999
HEADLINE!!: TBWA def FFoD 3-0
- TBWA – BmoC, Nano, Guess, Etern
- FFoD – Blizz, Tech, Bilbo, Smokey
With 10 minutes till game start, FFoD is only able to round up 3 players. A few minutes past the start time, Blizz quickly called Frogurt to wake him up from sleep right as Tech was trying to get in the arena… FFoD was able to field 4 players.
This game was a must win to keep a tie for first place for both TBWA & FFoD divsions..
About 30 seconds before we were about to be unleashed from holding, FFoD already began having trouble. Blizz pinged out before the match even started… TBWA made an offensive charge which resulted in Guess grabbing the flag and making the way while Etern, Nano, and BmoC held off the short handed FFoD back… Blizz came back just as TBWA capped after 3 minutes of play..
Some stalement fighting took place (mostly in FFoD base) with TBWA making some grabs but FFoD was able to play a good defense position… Tech made some solo advances to the TBWA flag, one of which he picked up but Etern was there and stopped his run while Nano had the flag for TBWA who died, but TBWA was able to keep the offense going and BmoC picked it up and dodged some Flying Frogs of Death and scored for the 2-0 lead..
The clock now near the 1/2 mark. Some more stalement fighting took place the Frogs were talking out loud of the secret plan for tech and blizz to get flag:) TBWA pushed hard into the FFoD base and were able to get an offense going, while Tech snuck around to get the TBWA flag, once again Etern stopped the run, just as Guess grabbed the FFoD’s flag and proceeded out the base and avoided the Flying Frogs leaping left and right, and with excellent cover made the 3-0 cap..
MVP: Etern – for getting double our scores:)
Summer APL Game #6
July 18, 1999
HEADLINE!!: ZULU def TBWA 2-0
- TBWA – ID, BmoC, Guess, Etern (sub: Shiva)
- ZULU – Tribe, Wizzy, Baron, Parrot
Perhaps the toughest game on the season was about to start. TBWA waiting for their own Acolyte to show up ran out of time as the match was about to start.. Starting for Acolyte, TBWA’s very own ID! 🙂 ZULU in the red corner, TBWA in the green corner.
As usual the 2 titans squared off in the center, TBWA mananged to gain the upperhand early in the match, a few minutes of fighting Guess and BmoC charged into the ZULU base and killed the defending ZULU’s and proceeded out of the base, Guess managed to get the flag just to the 1/2 mark when ZULU was able suround the TBWA flag run and stop it before the other TBWA could help the run. a few minutes later, Guess was able to sneak in the ZULU base once again and kill 1 off, still having Tribe alive. Guess was able to get Tribe smoking and stuck a bomb right on top of him, but somehow he survived and was able to kill the flag run right at the zulu base.
At this point, ZULU’s were on all defense telling their team “a tie is all we want”. Zulu was able to stop the TBWA flag runs.. TBWA was on the offense until BmoC suddenly pinged out. This is when the tables turned a bit, ZULU was able to push TBWA back, back to our flag when Shiva subbed in TBWA. TBWA was able to finish them all and fight for middle ground once again. ZULU was able to get a flag run going after some fighting they were able to escape the TBWA defense and score for the 1-0 lead.. Thats all ZULU needed at this point.
After the first run by ZULU, Wizzy pinged out thus giving TBWA a break, however he came right back before any advanced could be made. after this a lot of stalement fighting took place, with a few minutes left in the game TBWA had to “go for it”. Sending over some offense to the ZULU, however at the same time ZULU stole the TBWA flag and was able to cut the TBWA attack down.. ZULU was just about to cap the 2nd flag when Etern managed to bypass the entire ZULU defense and kill Wizard with flag a few inches from the base. However ZULU quicly sourounded and recovered and capped the flag for the 2-0 lead.. with 2 minutes left, this didnt look good:)
Guess along with the other TBWA did a literal Suicide. hehe. yes we all died:( The clock wound down giving ZULU the 2-0 win.. Congrats to ZULU on their win..

HEADLINE!!: TBWA def uFo 3-0
- TBWA – Nano, Guess, Prunus, Etern
- uFo – Andy, Jubi, D-Eye, HappyKen
After quite a few arena hoppings we finally got underway!
TBWA started out strong and took control of the map and launched into uFo turf, after some squabbles uFo was able hold off the TBWA attack.. The freshly respawned TBWA’s were able to make another attack, Guess was able to kill off Happy Ken and proceed out the uFo base while the the rest of uFo at midfield. Nano, Etern, and Prunus drove out the aliens 1 by 1 and Guess had an easy way out to return with the 1-0 lead after about 5 minutes of play.
Both teams unleashed out the holding pens once again, being down by only 1-0 uFo still was keeping their cool. TBWA once again took to the offense, Guess grabbed the flag but died about 8 inches away from the holder, Etern grabbed it next but was low and died escaping out the bottom part of the uFo base..
Prunus respawned in the upper part of the TBWA base while a lone smokey Jubi tried to grab the flag.. Guess proceeded to offense to meet of the TBWA attackers while Prunus finished off Jubi. Guess grabbed the flag for TBWA while uFo was in the defensive position. With the help of Nano, Guess took the middle route while Andy proceeded to follow him and try and stop the flag run. Nano taking shots for Guess died, but gave him cover to Barely escaping Andys missle and lasers, Prunus came to the rescue and gave excellent cover. Some uFo’s were able to make their way around mid field near the bridge, Guess hugged topped wall and prayed for the TBWA defense 🙂 TBWA was able to finish them off and returned home with the flag for the 2-0 lead after 12 minutes into the game.
With 18 minutes on the clock left, uFo needed to come out a little stronger and try to get some attackers going. But TBWA once again drove into the base. Guess grabbed the flag and killed Jubi but still had uFo in all directions, this flag run didnt look like it was going to be successfull with a few TBWA smoking and aliens everywhere. Prunus covered just enough to give Guess a spot to go top. Etern was holding off Deye on the bottom part of the green bridge to give Guess an opening, right when Jubi respawned top before the bridge, Guess was only 1/2 across. Jubi came down the bridge firing into Guess and Deye almost on the other side, Etern was able to jump in front of Guess and take the shots and while killing off both of the them. The other 2 ufO went around to block off midfield but Nano was there destroying the rescue attempt.

HEADLINE!!: TBWA def JaDe 3-0
- TBWA – ID, Guess, day61, Etern
- Jade – Zinks, Florn, King, Cosmo
BmoC being sick had to call in sick for todays match. So we scheduled in Phroz, but he had a lil trouble with mr. alarm clock, so ID quickly filled him for him today 🙂
We were hoping this game would move fairly quickly as Etern and Guess had to leave ASAP! Both teams agreed on a 4 on 4 and the game was underway quickly as both teams were very organized..
Well. The game started out the TBWA literally sweeping up JaDe’s all the way back to their base and Guess rushed in and grabbed the flag and was covered excellently allowing him return with the Flag in a 2:40 run.
The 2nd flag run was just about the same, however 1 JaDe sneaked around to the TBWA base the defense and grabbed the flag, Guess instantly did a 360 and stopped the flag run. day61 & ID were on attack and held up superbly until the other bubbles caught up to them and Etern picked up the flag and carried it back for the 2-0 lead.
The 3rd flag run didnt go as smooth as the 1st two did.. Guess rushed in and grabbed the flag, but was killed exiting the bottom part of the base with the flag still being left in the bunker, JaDe was unable to take it back to their base under constant attack from the other bubbles, Guess finally made it back where day61 was holding ground stilll next to the flag, Guess grabbed the flag with day61 along with ID covering excellently while Etern scouted the top for Jades…
TBWA wins 3-0, Jade may have been a little overwhelmed by us, but showed great attitude and never gave up.

HEADLINE!!: TBWA def EgO 2-1 (ot)
- TBWA – Guess, Etern, Nano, PhRoZ
- EgO – Acolyte, ZZzZZSNORE, Dragon, Chaos, Wizard (sub)
Wow, is all i can say about this game. The TBWA crew gathered before the game for a quick warmup then after a minor glitch with Etern and Guess’s modems, the game got underway.
Nano made a break for the flag early, killing Dragon and grabbing the flag about 30seconds into the game. However he only made it half out of the EgO base before he and Guess were swarmed by EgO cover.
About 10mins into the game Guess pinged out leaving the bubble team with a man down. EgO capitalized on the power play scoring a cap despite the persistent defence of Phroz, Etern and the returned Guess. Nano was only half a second off grabbing the other flag when the cap occurred.
After another 10mins TBWA broke into the EgO base strong on a power play of their own after Chaos pinged out. Guess pushed in hard and grabbed the flag and with the cover of Etern made it to the bridge in the red base. However Nano was held up killing Dragon behind and Acolyte caught up and killed Guess and Etern leaving the flag exposed. Nano killed Dragon then went to stall Aco. The result was Aco and Nano killing each other just as Guess spawned on them. With nice recovery skills Guess and the rest of the bubbles returned the flag to give us the 1-1 tie.
The clock entered overtime and it was sudden death, next cap wins. EgO went hard on offense into the TBWA base but Etern, Guess and Phroz held them all off superbly while Nano went for a lone solo flag run. Nano grabbed the flag having to contend with Snore to get out of the base. Nano turned Snore inside out and got in front of him, killing him off from behind. The rest of the bubbles were still busy defending as Nano got to the outter limits of the TBWA base. Aco was inches away from him but Nano killed him and a still smoking Nano returned the flag as the other bubbles finished off the rest of EgO.
This was a tough tough game, one of the best we will play all season. Congrats to everyone who played, especially Phroz and Etern who did awesome on defense and Guess who provided strong support where ever it was needed. Also thanks to Atomic and ID for being our loyal subs 🙂
