End of the game :

A few words after game :

  • After getting rid of two huge bases, the game was practically over.
  • I am glad that I changed the Vindictus for HR.
    Vind could have problems dealing with 22/23 arm.
  • It is worth remembering, that blessed ignores Baldur’s FEAT.
    It is so important in this matchup.
