Match Two: Round Two: itp Athenodoros' sacrifices pay off again
Alright, so he can Illuminate/crit/etc HAX dogfish44 out of a win, and you would think that the water leader's goats would've run out, right? Wrong. So Krillowatt begins Operation: Blizzspam and huge waves of icy wind start tearing into Cyclohm, doing huge amounts of damage. Cyclohm replies by roaring the substitute away, showing that CMFP may still be able to outmaneuver and secure victory. And then he starts bide.
To any newcomers: Bide is the move that will cause most experienced players to shit themselves when they see that the opponent has ordered it against them.
Now, Athenodoros can't actually freeze-HAX C$FP out of a win because Cyclohm has Shield dust, as all sheep-cloud-dragons clearly do, and that blocks secondary effects. So, Blizzard misses. To sumarize how bad this is, on a 13% chance C$FP:
1) Lost 35 points worth of potential damage (net gain of 14, but whatever)
2) Lost an action going second.
Welp, I just have one question. Athenodoros, where do you get your goats from and can you give me advice on how to properly sacrifice them?
