Stock games or "stockish" in this case are very slow games. if we do it again next year we will have to look at some more changes.. like 1/4 build times in stead of half.. a better red ship... etc...

It wasn't a jab at the edit or your hosting, more at the other team to bring some life in to this. It's kind of a fun edit, but yes a little faster would be nice and a red ship would be great!

The V screen is always low. Corp 1 probably has about 2.4 million fighters. 50% more then Corp 2.

Also it appears as though Deign still has the highest red alignment.


Hey noob... figs on empty ships don't count. :lol:

Ah. That explains why you fused and died on Haz almost immediately after xTern, day 3 I think it was; because you wanted to give the little critters a break! Very thoughtful. I was too shy to ask what Elite tactic that was. At 1200 baud, that whole event probably took almost 30minutes. Next time just use the CBY trick.

If I could blow up people who are cloaked out, I'd be at least half as good as I think I am!

Alas, I can not.

I'm sure that if you could, you would do it at 5am in the US when all your competitors are sleeping.

I don't know why you guys hiding on ports AFK is our issue. But we do appreciate it.

And I'm pretty sure 1 # Ship Destroyed # is worth at least three pods where you get to keep all your turns and time in the game. But you guys will have to get a kill first to see the benefit, I suppose.

Is this how you smack talk? I'm new to this.

Because most of our guys actually work and/or don't live in Australia, so we don't have players at keys 24x7 like you guys do. And we need them available to cash when we actually have the opportunity to do so.

If you think any of us are impressed with anything you guys have done this game, you're badly mistaken. Yes, you have the lead in this game, congrats. Despite the countless times you've fused ships and/or blown them up to navhaz (neither of which we have done a single time), despite the unbelievably stupid decision to blow dock when you were very close to ending the game on day 3.

Maybe I'm just bitter, but it leaves a bad taste in my mouth when you refused to allow us reasonable replacements for two players prior to the tournament, one who had never shown up or responded to a single ping since the draft (and still hasn't) and one who showed up for one practice a month before the game and then vanished. As a result of that, combined with some people generally not being available, we started the game with four players at keys for the first several hours while you had 9 players and bots log in perfectly, give their cash to your guys, and send you off right as the game started. Only after you had a massive early lead were you gracious enough to allow us to replace those who didn't show so we actually had the same number of players as you, a day after the game opened.

We win some, we lose some, that always has been the case and always will be and this is no different. But in case I haven't been clear yet, let me be: I am not impressed and nothing any of you has done in this game has earned any respect from this side. If you end up winning, congrats, you proved you can win with a stacked deck. We'll see how it goes in the next one.

lol

Edit: To be clear, if you guys pull an upset win you aren't going to get anything but a congratulations from us. This game or any other game that comes after. Probably doesn't fit the smack talk thread, but that's just the truth. Everyone can point to things that didn't go their way in a game.

Agreed. Maybe I'd feel differently if not for Cruncher's post and some of the general attitude and taunting of some of your teammates.

I am proud of what this team has done given the circumstances we found ourselves in after day one.
