First game took place on Himmelsdorf. MYM spread their forces along the northern half of the map, while Virtus went for the hill with most of their vehicles and managed to secure it. Right after that both teams rushed for the foot of the hill at the H row. The MYM team however used the spread of their forces and managed to start capping. Virtus managed to win the encounter at the foothill but MYM won by base capture!
Second game took place on Mines. Virtus spread their forces evenly leaving two self-propelled guns behind and trying to secure the foot of the hill, while MYM took the west island, hill and rushed past the village in the east. The combat began and within just two and a half minutes into the game Virtus managed to clear the entire field off without a single tank lost!
Third game took place on Airfield. Both teams chose to spread their forces out evenly and met in the middle of the map causing a small stalemate for the first several minutes of the game. Finally with just slightly more than three minutes left Virtus pushed the northern side of the map closing MYM in the close vicinity of their base. Eventually the game lead Virtus scoring the decisive kill 3 second before the timeout and winning the game by on points!
Fourth game took place on Prokhorovka. The teams unevenly spread with MYM going majorly west, while Virtus took the east. Both teams quickly reacted to the misbalance and encountered each other in the middle which led to destruction of the majority of the vehicles on the map. Virtus turned out on top and won the entire match!
First battle took place on Prokhorovka. Neither of the teams decided to go over the tracks, which caused them to meet early in the middle of the map. Mouse decided to hold ground, while SPALE took over the West side behind the road and performed a wide push to the East on Mouse, who lost the first battle.
Second battle took place on Himmelsdorf. SPALE pushed to the east sending just one scout to the West and stopped at the foothill road, while Mouse pushed full strength West on the tracks and rushed directly to the SPALE base. After a fast retreat of SPALE and a fast shot exchange SPALE managed to take the cap point counter down and destroy the entire Mouse team.
Third battle took place on Ensk. Both teams went for keeping the majority of their force in the city, with their tanks in a tight formation. SPALE pushed first going South which resulted in Mouse retreating south to the H line and sending forces to capture the SPALE who were unable to decap in time and eventually lost the game!
Fourth battle too place on Mines. SPALE took the hill and west side of the map while Mouse spread their forces more or less equally, also covering the town. SPALE took over the hill and pushed over towards the north which turned out to be a mistake leading to a decisive Mouse’s victory.
Fifth battle took place on Widepark. Mouse took position at the tracks while SPALE went majorly East and the stalemate lead to a draw.
Sixth and final battle took place on Widepark as well, as it was a rematch due to a draw. The teams took similar positions compared to last time. Mouse got the first frag and being a comfortable winning by points situation retreated behind their northern cap zone. SPALE tried to perform an assault on their position but lost in clouds of smoke, giving the match to Mouse!
