To my knowledge all players do not know each other nor have witnessed each others play style prior to this game.
The game is quiet for the first 10 minutes as everyone goes through the basic steps of advacing their economy and exploring but soon enough one team decides to expand aggresively with the other team fully aware of the expansion efforts. Conflict ensues and a full blown war with *many* medium-large battles is soon fought *through out* the game which lasts about 1 1/2 hours.
There is no team which has the decisive upper hand until the very last 30 minutes of the game. During this time the team at an extreme disadvantage launches a daring yet desperate full scall assault which nearly turns the tide of the war.
Strategic learning highlights from this recording would probably be the use of the Briton's Longbowman and a good screening of Pikemen/Swordsmen Infantry in Scattered Formation as their defense. Also demonstrated is how *not* to attack a Castle.
All players make the basic human mistakes in this match and are by no means the elite of the elite of AOK players. Everyone involved seems to range from experienced to semi-newbie on the verge of becoming a formidable regular.
