yDecoy To-o, Deflection From, Remove Fredthebear
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

Combinations (tactical maneuver that begins with a sacrifice of a more valuable unit) are as common as pizza... if you study the great players.

This collection has been great fun to assemble. It's LOADED with action! Definitely one of Fredthebear's top ten collections.
