(Nordera fleets need to be Zealous to use their kamikaze special)

Thanks for that info   :D :yes:

I've suspected it for some time now, but it's nice to know that for sure. :)

Re: Forum game: Rules/Discussion
Should we give some thought then to calling off the attack on the Nordera? The explosion will still be survivable, or we can try and take them out in one blow with the UGCR Fleets in the future...

Re: Forum game: Rules/Discussion
Isn't there some suspicion that the Nordera *gain* morale after taking 50% casualties? I'd prefer to wipe them out if we get the chance to do so - maybe next turn. The UGCR are positioned such that they could move North or South quite easily.

They went from High to Very High this turn.

Flak's going in on the attack btw, he's already made his move. If they counter with an explosion, he'll live.

I'm not sure how the Resupply works right now. Looks like just under 50%. UGCR Fleets are weak too when not merced up.

Re: Forum game: Rules/Discussion
When we destroy the Special Fleet, how about I send 4th SF through the node beyond Librae? What will happen?

Re: Forum game: Rules/Discussion
If it's still there. Might be gone soon.
Green blob been getting smaller every turn.

The Nordera probably get morale by...fighting. Would be my guess. Never checked the logs though, could be totally wrong~

Any reason why I should be securing Draco over punching the 2nd Fura in the face? I'm not sure how taking a system which I'm likely to end up having to abandon (via breakthrough specialist) improves our position on the map. Feels like I'd just be ceding the first strike to the 2nd Fura?

Re: Forum game: Rules/Discussion
I am playing Xanatos Gambit with the Nordera now. If they do nothing next turn, then hopefully the UGCR fleets are ready to help me destroy it. On the other hand, if they decide to go TENNO HEIKA BANZAI next turn, I can still take it and they are free to move forward while I resupply, hopefully also preventing the 2nd Fura from reinforcing the doomstack.

Sounds good to me :D  (and I can't see any downsides at the moment)

It doesn't matter who strikes the first blow when it's a 1v1, the result will still be the same.

I would be nervous about being in Kardoen on the off chance something else comes through. Also, you're closer to friendly support if anything like that does happen, with a system retaken into the bargain.

Oh and I never noticed the portal was shrinking! Well spotted! Looking at the size of it on the map now I'm surprised I didn't notice. It might well be gone completely next turn.

Fighting the Hertak again. They'll start running as soon as Katyusha limps into the system.

Seriously, now, how many Armageddons do I have painted on my hull? Two or three?

I'm the Cordi killer. Nearly all my engagements have been with them. In order, the 1st Cordi, 2nd Cordi, 5th Cordi, 1st Fura’ngle/Zy, 6th Cordi and 3rd Cordi have fallen before the 2nd CRF (with plenty of help.)

The 4th Cordi are lucky they didn't come up to the top like all the others.

Fleet: 4th SF
First Action: Minor, Travel to Sol
Second Action: Major, Attack Special Fleet
I don't know why you're so adamant about going to Sol. It's better you stay and destroy the Fura/Zy.

But if you won't listen, then Veers, you'll have to switch your orders and take them out instead.

Morale, politics and military concerns.

The military will be stronger without you. But if you must...

EDIT: So Veers, I guess you're going to have to switch to attacking the 2nd Fura/Zy, then Resupplying.

The difference isn't that great between your two fleets, and who knows, maybe it will yield a positive bonus of some description having a Sol Fleet enter Sol to defend it.

Either way, the Special Fleet isn't going anywhere anytime soon. You people in the Sol area will likely all get your time with it at some point.

Well, ok then. What attack force do we still have entering Sol though?

The plan without you should be 4th SF, 3rd CRF and 2nd DD.

Re: Forum game: Rules/Discussion
Spoon, is this how it works?

Fleet - 1st CRF
First Action - Minor - Attack 2nd Zy&Fura Fleet
Second Action - Major - Capture 2nd Zy&Fura Fleet

I can't remember the specifics of how you said we can capture things. Also, if we do need an extra action to capture it, Veers has enough power to destroy it on his own, so could the 1st SF's first action be used for the capture instead?

Re: Forum game: Rules/Discussion
Last I asked, We have to attack. And can 'try' to capture by using the next action. If the fleet is not destroyed. We cannot attempt capture.

The other Fleet can secure the system on their final action I think (Actually, can't remember)

I wonder how you go about capturing Fura'ngle when they are the ships?
