When the game started, Mukla's Army rushed to the capture circle and set up a defensive position.

They moved to the capturing circle to engage their enemy. Holding the advantage of a defensive position, Mukla’s Army bashed SWS in the first engagement and finished SWS off with a perfect flank.

Over the battle, SWS once had a 2 vs 1 advantage but made some severe mistakes while cleaning off the last tank, and let Mukla's Army strike back and turn the tide over.

Game 3 - Prokhorovka
  • Mukla`s Army: Chaffee x3
  • Super Whiny Singaporeans:Chaffee x3

After winning 2 games in a row with the same strategy, Mukla’s Amry decided to use it again. SWS, on the other hand, learned their lessons to be more careful in how they engage their opponent. They moved slowly along the central high ground using it as cover while trying to figure out their enemy’s position. In this round, SWS made another big mistake: the team spread out too far away making them an easy target for Mukla’s Army. Seeing their opponents spreading out too thin, Mukla’s Army rushed in immediately, but the rush wasn’t coordinated well enough. Some of Mukla’s Army were left behind letting SWS take the chance to counterattack. In the end, SWS turned the game around and took down Mukla's Army.

  • Mukla`s Army:Chaffee x3

Both teams played very cautiously at the start. IMT_Warrior used the terrain to set up a defensive position near the capture circle.
