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.


Lit a fire under your arses, didn't it? :lol:

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.


1. Nothing but excuses.
2. I thought Big D was replaced right away? Must be mistaken.
3. We get you are not impressed.
4. Yes we are all at keys 24/7 and/or live in Australia. One of the may perks of living off of our government.
5. Respect, hahahaha FFS like wise.
6. You keep blabbing about us having a full team, but wait we started with a randombot, and have yet to swap any of the players out.
7. You are starting to be one of the poorest sports, almost Helix bad. Make an excuse when things don't go your way. It's almost comical.

If the roles were reversed I highly doubt you would see many if any of us crying like a kid who lost a Fortnite match because of lag.

I for one have had a blast playing with this team there has been zero drama.

Good luck with the rest of the game.

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


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.


To be fair this game was always going to go the distance. No fotons. You guys are hanging in there. Good job on that. We would have done the same if the roles were reversed.

The fact that you point out we have had countless mistakes with fusing and nav has and are still this far in the lead says more about what we have done. Had we not made those mistakes we would be doing even better.

As for our ability to keep a good eye on the game, advantage us. We have our own bots as well. I have been afk most of the game. Get a few min here and there and we have an actual bot only. Instead of making excuses either way, we played the better game this time around. Happens. Things didn't go your way day 1 and that hurt. Happen to us last game. Is part of what makes this fun.

For the record I like playing games with no fotons. Makes you actually think about the game and come up with new tatics. Should do this every game.

Last tourney I'll ever personally play without them. Not even a discussion for me, automatic "no" from now on.

No fotons puts way too much advantage in the position of those who can be at keys when others can't. Fotons are the great equalizer - they enable you to defend when you can't be at keys. When your team is the one with about 1/10th the key time of the other, this doesn't seem like as much of a good thing, trust me.

SK makes a point to note that he sets latency to 150ms to avoid any advantage due to better ping times. To me, this is a WAY bigger advantage than that.

You guys actually have the clear timezone advantage since you don't cash when I'm awake since the last couple of times failed.

I'm confused, what failed exactly?
