LordSoth vs. John Romero
This was a game between Sean "LordSoth"
Wolff and Doom/Quake/Daikatana creator John Romero. It seems
there was a little trash talking in the pre-game chat, but could
Soth beat the FPS pioneer and keep his dignity, or would he lose
at his own game to grandmaster frag himself? Let's see...
Here is a little "Exchange" that lead to
the below Match!
LordSoth@ES> we need to do this again romero
The_Romero> C'mon LordSoth, let's go. You think you're a

The_Romero> You bringing someone? Team?
The_Romero> OK BIG BOY!!!
LordSoth@ES> you must meet the LORD
Here's the "Summary"; From Lord Soth himself!
We played an Large Island map, with me to the lower right and John
in the upper left. I was able to progress to bronze age rather slowly
compared to the games we play up here (about 20 minutes). Sent a
transport full of villagers to his island and create a second town
(more of a military camp). I had it up and running and still didnt
see or hear from Romero (got bored of that quick). So I sent so
galleys around to the other side and scouted his island out. I don't
even think he knew I was there. I finally saw his scout run into
the military camp and killed it fast (got to love those Phalanx).
By this time it was way to late for him to make a difference. But
he brought his boats around and killed a couple of villagers and
towers that I placed to close to the shore.
I thought it would be funny to harrass him. I sent 4 phalanxes
at a time to different parts of his town. Let him kill them for
kicks. While I was doing this I was going IRON. Didn't take long.
Captured all the Ruin sites and upgrade to Heavy Catapults and
Then it was time to cut off his blood, and show him the true light
of the Lord. :) I sent groups of 8 Phalanx and 3 or 2 catapults
to both sides (FLANK HIM GOOD). I easily crushed his town and was
picking up the Last ARTIFACT and we had com problems. It dropped
the game. :( No ROMERO DEFEATED MESSAGE. All he had left were a
couple of houses, his 3rd town center (I killed them every time
he finished building a new one, that had to be a pain for him).
We chatted a bit afterwards. It was a clear VICTORY for me. He
wants to give it a rematch sometime soon, I believe they all do.
Guess we will have to make the next one a shut out. - Lord (And
Master of ION) Soth (Ensemble Studios)
Personally I enjoyed watching the chit chat and play by play on
line last night - but Whats gong to happen in the next match up?
Or better yet, when Daikatana hits the streets and its ION's turn
to have the home court? Only Heaven Knows :)
