Re: Forum game: Rules/Discussion
Guys I am absolutely loving these write ups  :yes2:

I have spend several hours today finding the source of the mysterious error that's been bugging me (aka preventing me from recording footage) and finally found it thanks to the aid of The E and Zookeeper. But I still don't have a video to show for it. Sunday's turn will continue as planned, but I'm not sure if it'll come with a video too.
My deepest apologies. orz
Urutorahappī!!

I never would have expected such quality and enthusiasm and volume of RP when this all got started. I'm enjoying them too, and I'm just a player, I can only imagine how much you must be enjoying them as the creator, and we're just getting started!  :D

Then I salute all of your efforts!  :)

So tomorrow, perhaps we can all watch the glorious footage of us getting our asses kicked our fleets in battle.

And don't worry about the video issues. Teething problems should be expected for something like this.

Flagship of the 1st CRF is the Silver Arrow, you've accidentally confused me with the 1st UGCR who's flagship is the Garuda:)

That's what I get for not triple-checking my writing. :p Sorry 'bout that. Will correct in short order.

I wouldn't worry about it too much, I try and triple-check everything I do. Impossible to account for every detail. :) But thanks for the change. I should post something..., may be when i get home from work tonight. Sounds like a relaxing idea.

Re: Forum game: Rules/Discussion
Spoon, is it possible to get Fleet Status info on the enemy fleets at the end of a turn (at least the ones we know of), like we do with friendly fleets? The information's already there, just hidden around the battle results parts, so this might make it easier to pick out targets and so forth. Totally up to you, no pressure, it's just something I could see making it (a tad) easier.

And, of course, thanks for setting up this game for us. :yes:
[16:57] <CommanderDJ> What prompted the decision to split WiH into acts?
[16:58] <battuta> it was long, we wanted to release something
[16:58] <battuta> it felt good to have a target to hit
[17:00] <RangerKarl> not sure if talking about strike mission, or jerking off

I have considered doing that but then I thought being the mean bastard that I am "haha, no. They'll have to keep track of that themselves!"

Fleet: 2nd SF
First action: Major - Defend
Second action: none
X3NO, your fleet is currently in a contested system. You can only use the defend action when you're in a friendly one.

Re: Forum game: Rules/Discussion
With the 3rd SF heading down to Vega, I am concerned. I hadn't realised that until I saw this:

Fleet: 2nd SF
First action: Major - Defend
Second action: none

It made me think if he is not confident enough to risk an attack, why not retreat and resupply? But we have no reserve in the 3rd SF now which I would have advised take the 2nd's place and attack. I think it would be better for when the 2nd UGC arrives for it to head to Alderbaran instead of Tauri, as under these circumstances, I think it should be down to me and the 4th SF to handle whatever is coming, surely the two of us can take it. I just thought we'd have enough forces around to have 3 in each system with 1 in reserve at Aldebaran to rotate in and out, but now we have no reserve, so the 2nd UGC should act as that reserve when it arrives.

I would still rather that not happen and the 3rd SF stay up here. Our last 3 fleets will be placed on the map next turn, with 2 of those 3 deploying at the bottom. If the 3rd SF goes down, there will be 9 fleets on the bottom and 6 on the top, and I think this is dangerously imbalanced, especially with the top being the closest route to Sol with rich systems along the way. I really believe it's better for it to be 7/8.

Re: Forum game: Rules/Discussion
Has anyone taken a look at the comparison between the base stats of the Cordi and the Nordera? Look:

Nordera Fleet
Fighter attack strength: 12 (10+2)
Capital attack strength: 10 (8+2)
Morale: Very High

--------------------

Cordi Fleet
Fighter attack strength: 20 (20)
Capital attack strength: 12 (12)
Morale: Normal

The Cordi are so much more powerful than the Nordera. I wonder if that is an indication of change to come in the new WoD. Maybe the Nordera will be just fodder, while the Cordi are much more of a threat?

I believe that is because of the gunships that the Nordera don't have. Also the EMP missiles which in addition to doing significant damage to capships, they also give the fighter escort an interface screw.

Re: Forum game: Rules/Discussion
It's relative fleet strength, the Cordi numbers are high because they have a lot of fighters to throw at you.

Okay so Turn 1 video is up. If some of the transitions seem jittery, its not you. My video editing program does some really strange things with fraps recorded footage and I'm unsure why or how to fix it. (Also the music choice for the first bit was because of popular demand  :p)
Turn 2 happening in a bit.

Oooooh, love it-love it-love it!  :D  :D  :D

The Soaring Spirit was right where I said it would be, in the thick of the action kicking ass. Yes, I caught the name on the side of the ship.  :)

So, what class of ship is that, a Champion or a Lord?

Also, what did you mean by "popular demand"? Was it just your way of saying "My choice, deal with it. :cool:" ?

I have actually seen that before. I have no clue what it is, but it's something that showed up in my sidebar one time and I clicked it.

Hmmm, what people? Those who helped you fix the bug you were having? Well, whoever they are, I think they made the better choice. Your pick just doesn't have the impact needed for something like this if you ask me, especially for the very first piece of battle footage. I've liked all the music choices so far, including 1st vid, it really adds to the videos. I'm hoping you'll get a turn 2 vid out, as I want to see that lone Nordera fleet get smashed. But if not, perfectly understandable. This is going to be great once the action really heats up, there'll be a lot more activity from here on out.

And please, what ship class is the Soaring Spirit?

Lorric, your big carrier is a Lord-class.

Spoon, any chance that some of our characters from here might cameo in the WoD reboot when it comes out?  :)

"We have now reached the point where every goon with a grievance, every bitter bigot, merely has to place the prefix, 'I know this is not politically correct, but...' in front of the usual string of insults in order to be not just safe from criticism, but actually a card, a lad, even a hero. Conversely, to talk about poverty and inequality, to draw attention to the reality that discrimination and injustice are still facts of life, is to commit the sin of political correctness. Anti-PC has become the latest cover for creeps. It is a godsend for every curmudgeon and crank, from fascists to the merely smug."
