Well-written warstory all round: perfect example of 'this is the situation, I predict this will happen, so I'll do this' structure, rather than recounting the log.
Tbh, I really like the camaraderie/sportsmanship of it too. It's 'my boy HSA', not some random, and that set the right tone.
The fact you knew each other's teams and playstyles made it more interesting for me. Games where you have to figure out a new opponent are fun, but trying to outfox a familiar opponent is something else, and I really got that feeling from this.
'I knew you knew I knew' - exactly. 9/10
