|3:30 for first comment. Slower than I expected. I guess it's late. |

|I think there's something wrong with your pictures...|
I'm sure that you'll get it fixed up sooner or later, so I'll read it when I'm not (as) tired.
Sure, it's 3:45 in the afternoon here, but I'm still damn tired and there's nothing you can do about it! =)
|Whoops! Uploaded the wrong version. |

|looks about 9 quality, have yet to read it in depth, as it is just demo. |
|I don't play strifeshadow, but I found this very well done. Even if I don't understand if one of a certain unit should be able to handle one of another. Colors were a little off, but I'm not picky. Maybe the same color for each teamate and the team name. That's nitpicking though.|
|Too long for my liking so I didn't read it all, seemed classy though should get high ratings! |
|Holy long report batman! |
|I'd like to read it, but the "Team 1" and "Team 2" labels really make it difficult to read, IMO. I'll try again later.|
|very nice! id give it between 8-9. good job. |
Looks good though.
|yeah, those team tags were kind of annoying... I felt like I was reading through a kaleidoscope :P|
|Nice report, but would be a lot better if you removed team tags. YAY for Strifeshadow! |
|i dont have ss but good report -.- k pay me later for comment |
A little too much information in my opinion. It was a blow by blow description of the game - every skirmish, every unit death, including the killing of the kitchen sink. Maybe some of the less important ones could have been skipped, or at least summarised?
The other issue is the constant use of player names.
"When Tonderski had 3 Carvers ready, he headed south across the map to strike at AlienatedX . When Tonderski reached AlienatedX's base, he scouted the outer towers before striking at AlienatedX's pivot tower."
The names appear a little too often for my liking. The second sentence could have been just:
"When Tonderski reached the base, he scouted the outer towers, before striking at the pivot."
Shorter, and IMO, easier to read and understand.
Nice to see another Strifeshadow report.
|I kinda like the "Team Tags" but I do agree that they got kind of excessive in some paragraphs.|
As for the overuse of names, when you're referring to 4 people in the third person, there are few chances to use other references without becoming unclear on who you're talking about. But yeah, that got a little excessive too.
I can remove the "Team Tags" or at least most of them in the future, but I want to see what most people think of them. I use them because in some other battle reports I lose track of who is partnered with who.

Other than, decent report. The intro was a pretty good Strifeshadow guide on its own.
|My one caveat is that I wish you'd not have inserted those endless "Team1"s and Team2"s. ..I think they detracted more than they added.|
Happy Carvers ^^
|It is annoying to forget which teams the players are on, but it's not too hard to remember if you try, and all the extra information is annoying. On the other hand, you could do something like this:|
Where it shows that I am NotDefault, on team 1, and whatever color the name is is my color.
|The best report of this year!!! |
|Pronouns pls ^^|
|Ack. I wrote up a large write-up on what I liked and didn't like about this report, but I guess it got swallowed up by the 1000 char limit and I didn't notice... *hint**hint* admins...|
|nifty report, but I too dislike the team tags :P|
|IE 6? Since when? |
|to CKane: came out with xp. |
|nice report cept for the whole balance thing, imo maps shouldnt be balanced, war isnt, and it makes it way to sterile. Someone should make a map where 1 guy starts up on a hill, 1 guy in a trench or something, 1 guy with lots of aether pools with small amnt, 1 with small amnt of pools w/ lrg amount of aether, and so on. just my opinion. Thorough report tho. |
|Those Team 1 Team 2 tags are very evil. Keep sending more reports though, plz :D |

Credit/blame for the new format replacing the Team Tags goes to NotDefault.
