Company of Heroes News - Tournament XXVII After Action Report
During the two days that Tournament XXVII was played a total of 126 matches were played! If you give the brackets a quick glance to look for GG's, you might feel overwhelmed by the amount of good players, interesting match ups and surprising results that faces you. But don't fear! This AAR is written to find the gems in this huge mass of games and tell you who fought in them, where you can watch them and why these games are worth your time!


Aimstrong vs Silence Game 1


Aimstrong is easily one of the best players around right now, and after steamrolling through the first 3 rounds of the tournament seemingly without breaking a sweat, he faced purehatred AKA Silence in round 4. Silence is a popular livestreamer as well as an above average player with solid Wehrmacht play, but few would say he have the skill and ability to go 1 on 1 with Aimstrong. In this game however he seems intent to show his skill as a player, taking on Aimstrong on Langres utilizing a huge T1 and several bunkers to springboard to t4, effectively basepinning Aimstrong in the mid-game. After several failed attempts to dislodge Silence's position, Aimstrong rolls the dice with 2 consecutive OMCGs in a last ditch effort to win the game.

Silence solid T1-T4 tech proved a strong obstacle for Aimstrong to overcome


Sandland vs KoreanArmy Game 1


Sandland seemed to be on a proverbial mean streak for Tournament XXVII; Fighting from one of the toughest brackets of the tournament he knocked out Maccaroni 2-0, and followed it up with beating top 4 seed and SNF season 4 winner, Devm, 2-1! His opponent was decided when KoreanArmy beat TitiTwister 2-1 to earn his own spot in the Quarter Finals.

Winning BO3's against extremely skilled opponents didn't seem to fatigue either player though, for when they faced off on Angoville for their first game both players gave it all to win, making it into a definite must-see match! KoreanArmy used his fast nade strategy against Sandland who went with a T1-T3 tech to counter it with early pumas. We see some great flanks from KoreanArmy as well as solid Wehrmacht play from Sandland. The game goes long and both players manages to build up substantial forces, making the end of the match a spectacle to be watched!

Jeep vs Sandland Game 1


After a long, exhausting tournament were both had to fight some of the best the current CoH scene have to offer, Jeep and Sandland face each other in the fight for the third spot. Sandland had gone through Devm and KoreanArmy but lost to Tommy in the semifinals. On the other side of the brackets, Jeep had gone through both Bjarkey and Guderian, but lost versus Aimstrong in the semifinals.

The first match between Jeep and Sandland was played on Semois and it goes back and forth as the will is certainly there in both players, but being robbed of most of their energy from a long and grueling tournament the contenders both lose squads and vehicles trying desperately to give the other a fatal blow. In the beginning of the game there are big infantry battles for the centre of Semois, but as it progresses, Sandland's army turns into a more mechanised one while Jeep uses a strange combined arms US force to try and get the map back under his control. The game goes on pure adrenaline; never stopping and constantly turning back and forth, and whoever you hope will win, you'll with all certainty find something in this game that makes it one of a kind!

Aimstrong vs Tommy Finals


With two of the most famed and skilled current players reaching the finals, the stage was set for epic games. And though fatigued, Tommy and Aimstrong fought hard and had a intense showdown for a second game. Fittingly, so close to the release of Company of Heroes 2, the game was set on Semois, the first 1 versus 1 map for Company of Heroes at its release almost seven years ago.
Tommy had trained and improved at a intense pace the last few months before the tournament under the mentorship of Aimstrong, and it could be seen in his games against Symboisis, Noluckystrike and Sandland as he beat them all without chalking up a single loss. Aimstrong had a strong showing too in the other brackets, beating all comers and only losing one game to Inverse in the quarters.

The first game of the series was a quick affair as Tommy tried for a 4 pioneer opening for quick map control and shock value. The shock value of the tactic was lost however, as Aimstrong predicted he would use it and used a 4 engineer build. He used the build to great effect and managed to close the game in under 20 minutes.

Losing the first game of the Best of 5, Tommy gathers his wits for game 2 and, with the factions reversed, he seeks to return the favor. The game almost feel like a sentimental glimpse at what made people love Company of Heroes when it came out 7 years ago; a strong tier 1 build from Aimstrong allows him to hang on to his cutoff in the first few minutes, and then push out step by step until he manages to establish his position, holding the center of Semois. Meanwhile Tommy played a classic 4 rifle build, holding a good portion of the map and constantly harassing Aimstrong's high fuel and position. Transitioning into the late game Tommy rolls the dice with the OMCG, as Aimstrong uses vetted up stugs and a King Tiger to counter it. A quintessential and almost sentimental game for lovers of the Company of Heroes vanilla match up!
