Your Memorable Matches!

Post by socrates on Thu May 05, 2016 8:38 pm

Hey guys, I had an idea for a thread which I thought might be quite interesting and that is for each person to post a game that was particularly memorable to them and give a short summary or match report (doesn't have to be this long). Can be from any league, with any players but would be nice to see which matches that people are fond of. Without further ado here is one of the games which sticks out in my memory.
______________________________________________________________________________________________


Ajhax 2-1 HK Flamingo
(3-2 inc lag goals)
League: Feed Me, Season 3, Division 2
Rec: http://www.haxballtube.com/watch/414d848c

Build up

My time in Feed Me began as captain of Soccerettes during Seasons 1 and 2. It was here I gained the reputation of worst captain in haxball as we won probably less than 3 games altogether despite many considering us to have one of the strongest teams.

After Soccerettes disbanded I entered the Season 3 draft as a player and was signed by FM legend Cathalio11. It was a nice team but it became apparent quickly that I was surplus to requirements there. Cath was arguably the best GK in FM at the time and so my chances were limited. At this point the wheeler dealer Terry Tibbs (TT) used the opportunity to twist the arm of Cath and arrange a loan for me to move to Ajhax.

I already knew the Ajhax lads quite well from playing in TT's private rooms and the squad at the time of me joining was Tanzim (c), Griffin, CamSampbell and TT. Before I had even played my first game I realised that this was a special team, it was such a close knit bunch where we would spend hours in TT's room passing the ball around, discussing tactics and just having a laugh. To this day I've not experienced a team atmosphere quite like that one where everyone was playing more for each other than themselves.

And so the time for my debut arrived and it was fair to say, with how I was welcomed and with who my teammates were, that I had never previously been as determined to do well as I was for this game.

The Match

It's fair to say that the level of UK hax was pretty appalling at this time so please forgive the horrific positioning you can see from me.

We started off with me, Tanz, Griff as the lineup in the 1st half. Right from the start I'm incredibly nervous, which probably wasn't helped by the game being on stream and I really really didn't want to concede and so find myself stupidly deep. As expected in a team captained by Tanzim passing is essential and he quickly gets me on the ball to try and include me in the game. We were the better team initially with Griff and Tanz passing it round quite nicely and not giving me much to do. But then disaster struck in the 3rd minute as HK Flamingo scored with a GK mistake which is quite frankly laughable. Such an awful error as I kicked the ball straight at the opponent to gift them a goal - no idea what I was thinking.


The 1st goal - wp soc

The first half finished 1-0 and after my costly error I was firmly in the dumps feeling awful and that I had let everyone down. Without the support from my teammates at half time I'm not sure what would have happened.

Tanz and Griff sat out in the 2nd half with TT and CamSam coming in to the team. A bold move considering my first half performance. TT slotted in as GK and I pushed outfield to somehow try and make amends. The moment came after just 20 seconds where after lifting the ball off the wall I had left Barry for dead and was bearing down on goal. I think 99 times out of 100 I would have passed here but for whatever reason I went for the shot trying to deceive the keeper. The relief as that cannoned in of the post was huge.


The equalizer barri

Less than one minute later almost the exact same thing had happened again. I had bounced off the same wall in the same area and after bulldozing my way through Barry and bLaaaa was closing down on goal once more. At the time CamSam was desperate to get his first goal of the season and he was in such a lovely position I knew straight away I was gonna pass to him. Amigo worried of Deja Vu was clearly afraid I would repeat the near post shot and so left Sam in too much space. I picked the right moment and passed to leave him through on goal to score what turned out to be the winner. We didn't sit back despite the lead and looked the more likely to get the next goal but it was already over - no way were they gonna get past TT.


The winner! barri barri

Aftermath

The Ajhax post match rooms were always very special and I remember how happy we were at this time. There was no teamspeak in those days so we used to congregate in TT's room and the chat after a win would go by at 100mph. Sadly this team was broken up shortly after my loan spell ended due to the infamous Gary impersonation which left a big hole in the community. It would be a long time until I again played for Ajhax after that scandal where I played for them in the final game of season 11 which was also quite special to me but I'll save that for another time Smile

Nice work soc!

While I wouldn't say this is my most memorable game ever, I guess I'll leave it here since I made a video for the whole tournament.

The RFL Nations Cup Final #1 everybody



I guess it was significant as it came at the peak of the old RFL community, which was a pleasure to be part of. We were certainly not favourites to win the whole tournament at the time, but we practised incredibly often and well, to beat the French (who were the 2nd country after us to create an RFL league) was very nice indeed.

Pelicans 2-1 Ghost Whisperers

First game we played in season 6 where it took me months to convince TT to join. After a goalless first half, we conceded straight away due to a powerful shot by Stefan which knocked me in the net. We then responded, p4 scoring a brilliant goal before setting up wieser for the winner against the run of play. I did a shit job as cap that season since we had a lot of inactive players come the end of the campaign, but that result stood out, 2-1 against some decent foreign players.

HK Flamingo 2-1 The Crab House

Think it was the second game I played that season because I had to play vs Pablo when we only had 4 players online. I played AM because I felt confident, although after the first half I felt like I had made the wrong decision. However, I played in the second half and scored my first ever Feed Me goal. We won 2-1, thanks to huub and Knucklezz and Kepes making a great save at the end. Knucklez had a go at me for playing in that game afterwards Very Happy, but that win kept us up after it was likely we were going down, especially after losing to last placed NWA in the dying minutes and Kalajan playing the game of his life in goal, so it was great to play in that game and contribute to the result.

Those games aren't the most fun I've had in the game, but those games stick out as the best league matches I've played. Most fun I had was when me, ogre, Amunike and weiser played and beat Route 59 and Tabularazers in FS. Aside ogre, we were all new to 4v4 so it felt great beating some of the powerhouses of the hax world, even though they probably weren't treating it seriously.

Best premierhax game I played in was probably the 0-0 vs Can't Score on the last day of Season 3. Was fun defending with Punk and Iceman and we almost scored at the end.




"We used to pride ourselves on producing midfield artists in this country. Players like Tony Currie, Alan Hudson, Glenn Hoddle and Paul Gascoigne were just a few English playmakers developed in our clubs - players who could peel an orange with either foot but sadly no longer. What a pleasure then to see an artist at work even if he is a foreigner."

All matches ive played where memorable, not only because the mighty Kamina never forgets, but also because a legend like me was on the pitch!
Special were of course TuT's win in fm on the last day of the last season, we had to draw to stay in the league and also didnt play bad, but then skinny made the goal of the season with a rocketshot, but we scored a very nice goal in the last second, with giva screaming in the stream. And the best of it - with salamini, aeRo and Ayla on the pitch it were some of the nicest players i met in Haxball.
And the Cup Final in haxtrick of course, also players like Hannes, socrates and Tuntija in the team, we made a really nice game against the rivals in haxtrick and soc scored in 2nd HT of overtime after both teams had nice chances in a nice match.

their other loss that season was also a classic Very Happy

http://www.haxballtube.com/watch/2c533a00fa

Coming from 4-1 down to win 6-4 in the final seconds of a title clash. Other notable moments were falk juking fap off the face of the planet and aguero10 having a go at wawamax for "flying in def like harri potter" mani

Sadly we lost the title on goal difference in the end but I think we claimed a moral victory of sorts by taking girgs' band of mercenaries to the wire.

haxballtube not working for me Sad

I'd agree that the end of season 4 fm was probably the most exciting thing that happened in UK hax. Was glad to be part of it at the end when Joehan traded me to Arriba for the last 2 games.

A mention I guess for the final match of the season with NL vs TIS, where Nino missed that sitter to hand NL the title. Epic stuff.

One of the most memorable matches for me is probably the Ajhax match vs HK Flamingo/Reivers Design when we had one of our few seasons in division 1 of FM.

Although we drew 3-3 it sticks out for me as it was the first competitive match that Jds decided to stick me in at AM (I think) and I also scored my first ever goal in division 1.

I'm not even in TuT but that's a great memory for me. What an end to the final match!

Wouldn't have been the same if it wasn't against GoodFellas in the final. Fantastic team to play against and they have matched us all the way since division 3 Smile

Didn't realise you played for MMO Surprised

I guess this is more Quickswans with Frank as captain though? Some top quality players in that match!

Big ups to grenbo as well, great guy and ofc one of the greatest FM caps in CB.

Yeah all the old streams are gone as twitch deleted everything about a year ago. Weird how haxballtube isn't working but when it's embedded into FM then you can still view them. Maybe jonny can shed some light on the situation.

I must be getting old. Enjoying all this reminiscing Very Happy

Almost as if it were destiny.  :love:



I would have loads of these but I have the memory of a 47 year old goldfish.

2nd game in the Inaugural FM cup(pre league, this!). Socghostico winning against I think Chef's team? I managed to nab a hattrick that included a goal good enough to make Jonny say 'wow'. I forget how many goals I used to be able to score ... what the hell happened to me?

Arriba vs Leftovers in the first FM season. Jonny, Deer & myself passing rings around everyone. I think Deer got 5/6 goals in that game. In fact, all of those games aside from that DEJA game that we shall not talk about were loads of fun. No practice necessary, just turn up, do the job, chat shit in the chatbox for hours later. They were simple times.

Basically every ACDP match ever played. Each one just as hilarious as the next in their own unique ways. It was so cool being able to build something so special. Great friends and a brilliant team. Same goes for all Soc's matches. They are always fun even when we play shit. It makes the few good results we get so much special when you are able to share it with good friends like that.

I even tried looking at the FM league archives to see if any results would jog my memory but apparently we were retarded admins back then and didn't really seem to log anything.

hehe - how you ever managed to beat a decent team with TTwat in goal i'll never know - maybe down to the fact we had TTom at the other end, who was in ther habit of scoring on request. That was my favourite part - like 10sec after i asked him, he'd planted the ball in the opposing net Smile

Post by nero on Sat May 21, 2016 12:03 am

my first official hax game was in cc 2012 vs croatia. I had only played 4v4 a few times in public before, so I had no idea how to play. But I got lucky and scored my first goal! and it also somehow won gotw.
at 2:58


Another important win for me was in the ESL 1v1 ladder, the ladder was extremly popular at the time and getting to the top 10 was huge achievement for anybody. I wasn't that good at the time but I had somehow managed to defeated much more experienced and better players and I got to the top 10 with crazy camping strats.

But for it to get recorded and saved in the statistics I had to play one more game as rank 10. It was gonna be my last game, because i wanted to quit once i reached my goal (top 10), so I start the random match maker nervous as hell hoping to get an easy opponent....

I get matched up vs a player ranked around 550.., Pedy from Denmark. He was really good for having such a mediocre ranking. He also happened to be my biggest enemy at the time out of literally anybody (I usually always lost vs him in public rooms and we hated each other at the time). I wanted to curse the haxgods for giving me this opponent, it was just so ridiculous and I would lose like 30points just for a draw.

But luckly I managed to make a comeback from 2-3 and win with 4-3!, it was such a scary game. We both played very conservative and strange. I could happily quit the ladder!  

A year later or something, when I was a better player, I returned to the ladder and got to 1st place! I used very strange camping tactics were I pretended to be a bad player. I made tons of semi mistakes on purpose to make the opponents think that I sucked and then they would get impatient and punished. (I had tons of nervous/intense games here too).
1:


ESL ELIMINATION CUP - 1v1 Small

Ok, this wasnt just one game, more of a memorable cup. I have won tons of differents cups in haxball, but no cup was as nice to win for me as this one, i needed this mentally.

This cup had so many people, and so many good players, it must have been the most serious 1v1 small haxball cup ever to take place.

I got a very rough first opponent, a spanish player who had experience of winning serveral ESL cups before. But I destroyed him with tons of goals with my odd playstyle.

I won a couple of more games vs good players with tons of goals until the semi, which was vs a portguese player who also had experience of winning cups. I was nervous but won pretty easy. But after the game he constructed recs and faked the result, but after tons of investigation the esl admins banned him from the site.

half 1 if u wanna see my weird playstyle:
http://www.haxball.com/replay/12.swf?token=hax&wmode_direct=yes&replayurl=http://ehaxball.com/replay/7ad128d298967436113d3caabf33ac68.hbr

I was so happy to get the final game vs Muris 9, he beat some much bigger names on his side of the brackets.
But unfortinally I couldnt destory him like I did with everyone else in this format, he was too smart.
I remember banning the ESL admin dynamix because he joined the room and wanted to stream the game, I blamed it on Muris.
Here is some game play of the final game:

He had 1-0 and 2-1 on me. But I managed to get 2-2 in the last seconds and later won in over time!


My most memorable game in premhax was when c3 played vs SH.
cat-naho-Yawn(still noob) vs. Jai-Mad-aero
I was so extremely angry when they scored the 1-1 goal so that I had to walk around for 30seconds before I could sit down and continue to play. I really wanted to win this league and this game was very vital.
Yawn scored with 4seconds left after an insane save by cat and we won with 2-1, such a relief.

Also winning fm season 15 was big to me, because there were so many good teams and players this season. It was the strongest season in fms history without a question, so far. There were some very nervous games for me here, because we couldnt lose any points, but we didn't choke. yeeh it was recently, but im sure that some of these games will be very memorable for me later on.
