I am not sure. I was playing all my turns in The Big Game but now I can't log in.

SK why did you delete me?


I was asked to remove and replace you by your team Captain. I was told you quit.

sk

Wow I never said that.


I am trying to find the exact quote but it appears that when you remove someone from a group chat in ICQ, it deletes their posts in the chat, unfortunately. But the last time we heard a single word from you was on 8/19, one week ago, the morning after you and the rest of the reds were killed in your sit sector. You came on the group chat and basically said we all suck and it's over. Myself, and several others, pointed out that we hadn't quit yet, but you said 'what's the point?' or something similar and then vanished. When we didn't hear from you after several days, I asked for permission to replace you. You had been responding daily until that point, and we were pinging you constantly and you stopped responding.

It's now been a full week, and you come back and ask why you can't log in? Come on. You quit, we replaced you.

I never quit. I got SD on 8/20. I first noticed I couldn't log in on the morning of 8/22. I wasn't even at full turn regen yet. I received no communication from yourself or SK.

Yes I was critical after mistakes were made but after you threatened to kick me out of the ICQ channel that was the end of the discussion. That was the night of 8/19 and I played my turns after that. I specifically remember because my exp was 0 so I had to run the haggleexp again which for some reason kept stopping after 1 loop so I had to write a quick script to interface with your twx script.

Apparently the rumors of our demise were greatly exaggerated.

S: --------------------
S: Corp Assets vs Game
S: --------------------
S: Corp fighters: 1630804 Game fighters: 3522089

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.

Yeah, bot is still connected, but you're not currently on the cashing rotation. Probably a good call.

What's up in OK? I don't see any storms on radar.

Here’s to the animosity quickly becoming bygone, and the new friendships everlasting.

Well done Corp 2 for doing as well as they did despite early setbacks.

Thank you corp 1 for putting differences aside and playing like we have been corping together for years. Everybody contributed and it was a well earned victory.

Good game everyone!

I must say because of Shadow's reputation, he forced us to come up with some out-of-the box strategies and we made sure we practiced them before the game started. He was feared which in turn made us work harder.

Hammer and Mind Dagger are great a CEO & second. The whole team was a lot of fun to play with and hang out with on Discord. I thoroughly enjoyed this draft corp.

Thanks SK for hosting.

Thanks to everyone for playing, it is increasingly hard to get enough players to form two teams in a normal tourney let alone three, which we had if you added everyone together.

Corp 1, good job executing your strategy and keeping your players motivated and active. We, unfortunately, struggled mightily with both - we did not give you a very competitive game this time thanks to a poor start and lower than expected participation.

I do want to thank everyone who played for corp 2, even those who only had the time to be bots. I enjoyed playing with all of you.

Since I always try to do this after a tourney, I am naming Loc team MVP - he put in a massive amount of key time and was always there when needed. Also, thanks to Zip for showing up and contributing after we had to drop a player, and to Doomed and Lonestar who were not drafted on this corp but showed up with zero notice to fill in spots for others who were drafted and never showed up at all.

Very little went right for us, from getting our draft team to show up to our disastrous start to the constant problems keeping bots connected or getting them back when they died. But we did what we could with what we had, and everyone on the team came back and fought to get back in this after all of our reds were killed and we almost had to quit just a few days into the game. That comeback, where we went from less than 50 to 3,000 sectors gridded in a day, would have kept us in this till the end if we had fotons to protect our grid :) Not complaining here, just pointing out that we banded together and fought hard when many would have wanted to quit.

See you all next time. While I can't promise the final outcome, the next tourney we play certainly won't be a repeat of this one.
