Arkroma is Just Ridiculous

                                                       (Click The Picture to Zoom in)

Was Playing in a 2-man que Yesterday, This guy got greedy and, on the play, Skipped 1 and then went straight to 7 without stopping, because he smelled blood when he hit sphinx summoner on 4 vs my no fliers. I made it to 8 and arkroma killed him from 22 in 2 hits.  There is actually a lesson to be learned here: Momir basic is about commitment. There actually IS a time where its going to be correct to go "all in" on 6's or 7's but that will happen alot more and be more successful if you PLAY YOUR 1-DROP, on the play!  This guy hedged on t1, and when he got the goods on 2-4, he wasn't able to capitalize because he wasn't aggressive enough early.  There is a reason why the default strategy stop at 8: 8's are amazing, and im not just talking about Platinum Emperion or Hoverguard Sweepers here, both Arkromas, Hellkite Overlord, Sphinx of the Steel Wind etc, these types of huge idiot flyers end the game or put it out of reach VERY quickly, especially against an opponent who isnt playing 8's of their own.

So Today's Momir Lesson: Commit, and if you aren't getting to your 8's there better be a damn good reason.
