'Into the Breach' is an amazing strategy game that manages to use its small scale to great effect. The missions are fast-paced, but the twist on the typical strategy game objectives means that a whole new world of completing missions is opened up. The music and aesthetic are appropriately fantastic for Subset Games and improves upon their previous work. And while long gaming sessions can be a detriment to the game’s quality, in short bursts this game is an amazing experience. Finally, the game creates a whole new world of empathy that I never expected from a game like this. For the price, it’s definitely worth the hours upon hours that can be dumped into this game.
Team Solomid, Team Liquid, and the surprise contender of Counter Logic Gaming are all still competing for those final two spots. Who will claim them? Which meme team will play spoiler?
As the last few weeks shake out, there seem to be three tiers: the top two, the bottom two (or three), and then everyone else in the middle.
Only the top six teams will be competing for that big win and a chance to represent North America at the Mid-Season Invitational and I don’t think every team has a chance to get there.
I’d also like to issue an apology on behalf of anyone who bet on the teams that were expected to win, because no one could be expected to predict the absolute madness week four brought us.
