Two of my losses for people to watch and tear apart my play, if they would be so kind!
IG < Ork, Quest's Triumph
If one thing lost this match for me, I think it was failure to get a bassy. 2 Nob squads + MANZ = huge pain for IG, unless you break them up. I'm not too sure what else I did wrong on this one. There were some micro screw-ups, but I'm slowly getting better, and there were a couple of uncovered points that I should have scouted / decapped / capped.
IG < Eldar, Battle Marshes
The Eldar went for a GU harass, while teching for Falcons and then onto Warp Spiders and Wraithlords. Once a 3-squad WS mass hit, I didn't feel like there was a damn thing I could do... so... what did I do wrong?
I used a tactica build to get GLs / scan for the anticipated Rangers - naturally, he didn't actually use them (damn). I also had a turret up next to a crit anticipating Rangers. A foray into his base @ about 5:00 with two GM squads with grenades finished off his GU force but was then screwed by his falcon tanks appearing. Upgrading the turret that I built next to the crit to use missiles allowed me to fend off the Falcons. What surprised me was just how fast a FD squad nails a turret. Very, very fast. 3 full GU squads (with a couple of heavy weps) firing at a single Firedragon squad in cover failed to kill a single one. I should have CCed them, in hindsight. Doh. If I had put the pressure on more at around the ten minute mark I might have stood a chance, but I actually assumed that he would have WS ready for me, and tried to tech to T3 to get some LR out.
He attacked on one flank, I countered on the other, but he swiftly moved around and then teleported 3 WS squads in behind my GMs, cutting off their route to the nearby cover, and then slaughtering them. It was gg pretty much there and then.
Any and all comments on macro / micro / BO would be most welcome.
