    Great warstory Ray.Four stars is really low.5/5 from me.
    I wonder what would have been the outcome of the battle if both sleep poweder and hypnosis had missed.

    Great job to both of you, this was an excellent read :). Both played very well throughout the game, but Rey's endgame execution was stunning. It's rare that you get a warstory with an excellent battle and excellent comments, usually one or the other lets it down, but this had both!

    5 stars, recommending for archive.

    This was a nice close battle, and very fun to read. The ending was phenomenal and both of you played nicely throughout the entire match. This was a well-formatted and thoughtfully written warstory! Excellent work, Rey and Mizuno =]

    I thought the warstory was excellent. Good predictions and long term thinking made the match gripping throughout. Reading the match in the warstory was almost as entertaining as watching it live. Great Job!

    Firstly, in before archive.

    Secondly, this battle is simply amazing. 5/5 for little hax, and a lot of guessing games at the end.
