Fight Night – January 29 2011

File photos: Neobokrug Elytis, KittyKat Borkotron.

A points system was used this week, however due to extenuating circumstances the final official match was called off and instead featured NeoBokrug Elytis fighting KittyKat Borkotron.

Matches were as follows:

Round One

Combatants Weapons Map Winner
Evil Udein Crowbill
Riley Boccaccio Flayer
Minefield Ridley Boccaccio

Remarks: Both fighters were relatively new to the Fight Night arena and ran in to multiple mines during their match. Riley was the last person standing.

Dassina Andel Vicious Clobbering Stick
Mira Kamiguwa Kidney Burster
Fort Stygian Dassina Andel

Remarks: Both fighters moved at high speed but due to the exceptional amount of space afforded by the Fort Stygian map were able to fight most of the match unhindered by traps.  A volley of grenades was launched at the 14 minute mark but the fighters continued for a few minutes afterward, occasionally attempting Hooper Gambits and emerging with mixed results. The fight ended a couple of minutes later when a second volley was launched, taking Mira out of the match.

Virus Resident Flayer, Kidney Burster, Crowbill
Psycho Baroque Vicious Clobbering Stick, Slugthrower, Nailgun, slugthrower
Fort Stygian, Shark Attack Virus Resident

Remarks: The match started off once again on the Fort Stygian map. Virus attempted a Hooper Gambit early in the match, becoming poisoned in the process. Each player switched weapons a number of times – after an extended chase mostly by Virus after Psycho, Psycho changed tactics and attempted to gain the upper hand by attacking from a distance with a number of guns. After a map change mid-fight, Psycho ran in to a saw trap and expired abruptly.

Oku Ghost Vicious Clobbering Stick
Smoky Steamweaver Crowbill
Shark Attack Oku Ghost

Remarks: Smokey ran in to a spike trap, recieving both damage and poison early in the match. The fighters kept a mostly tight match afterward near the northern edge of the map, however Smokey fell first due to his injuries.

Camden Wryden Flayer
Tokiko Tigerpaw Vicious Clobbering Stick
Space Inverters Tokiko Tigerpaw

Remarks: Camden nicked a saw on his way out of the gate, then ran in to a couple of mines. He managed to hold on for about a half minute afterward but succumbed to injuries incurred while attacking his opponent.

Aposiopesis Fullstop Vicious Clobbering Stick
Fei Bourdeille Crowbill
Initiation Fei Bourdeille

Remarks: Tight fighting, no traps triggered, however Aposiopesis was arguably taken out of the match by radioactive damage dealt by a piece of salvage that fell in the arena.

Evil Udein Crowbill
KittyKat Borkotron Flayer

KittyKat Borkotron

Remarks: Evil ran in to numerous mine and spike traps at high speed while attempting to hit the more seasoned KittyKat and expired within a minute of the match start.

Riley Boccaccio Flayer
Dassina Andel Vicious Clobbering Stick
Sumo Dassina Andel

Remarks: Riley ran in to several saw traps during the match. While she managed to hold out for about a minute and a half, the damage she accumulated from both the traps and Dassina’s clobbering stick proved too much.

Psycho Baroque Vicious Clobbering Stick
Smokey Steamweaver Crowbill
Psycho Baroque

Remarks: Smokey hit a couple of mines early in the match. Despite a relatively tight (but high speed) match following this, Smokey expired first.

Oku Ghost Vicious Clobbering Stick
Camden Wryden Flayer
Russian Roulette
Oku Ghost

Remarks: Camden forfeited the match after accidentally flying during a jump.

Tokiko Tigerpaw Kidney Burster
Aposioesis Fullstop Kidney Burster
Russian Roulette Tokiko Tigerpaw

Remarks: Mostly tight match confined to clearer areas earlier on, but both players made heavy use of gas traps closer to the end of the match.

Fei Bourdeille Crowbill
Virus Resident Flayer
King of Mine
Virus Resident

Remarks: Fighting was concentrated mostly in the north-eastern corner until such time that Virus fled to the southern edge of the arena in an attempt to trip up her opponent. While no traps were sprung, Fei received the most damage during the match and thus expired first.

KittyKat Borkotron Flayer
Neobokrug Elytis Machete
KittyKat Borkotron

Remarks: A tight match fought in earnest, however whether through unfamiliarity or rustiness, Neobokrug was incapacitated quickly after running in to two mines and , leaving KittyKat the clear winner of the match.
