Re: General forum game discussion
Ouch, gonna need some burn cream for that one.

But I can dish it right back out. (Or would you just rather wait for the results of this phase before our next verbal round of Enioch vs. Lepanto?)

(OBTW Spoon, we never actually gave the DD a 1/3 share of the refinery. That, as Enioch made specific in his treaty terms, was contingent on our resolving the dispute in Aldebaran. Which we obviously didn't.)

 :p

Hit me at your leisure.

Re Aldebaran: Did you secure the location again? Don't forget that the last 'secure' command takes effect.

Haha oh man, these diplomacy posts give me such delight  :lol:

I wasn't sure so I asked the DD before the turn:
Remind me, did you guys have some kind of agreement with the other groups to share the resources of the refinery or is this a 100% grab of it?
Both the CRF and the UGC appear to have been OK with a three-way split of the refinery. They did seem to adopt our stipulations against the SF, which included a three-way split of Aldebaran.
Else the refinery would have been 100% in the hands of the DD since last turn.
But I guess any sharing in the nearby future is coming to an end?  :p
Urutorahappī!!

Your nation lacks plot armor, so you don't have a choice in the matter. ;7

Spoon, you have your war. I hope you're happy. :P

All you guys had to do was keep out of SF interstellar policy and the war would have started already  :banghead:

Sorry if my previous foreign policy prevented anyone else from having fun.

Glad you're being entertained by our back-and-forth, at least. ;) Who do you think has the better zingers?

Spoon, it's a good thing you told us you needed your data. I think there's still a decent chance that even with your new points system, we'd have been able to keep peace in this galaxy. I personally would have found the challenge of that appealing. :)

But the literal God of the Universe has spoken. And he is a God lusting for the flames of war to spread through his galaxy.

So many hot heads in one sub-forum. :D

Good stuff guys, and we're better testing the combat now than later. The diplomacy has certainly been interesting, especially as each side really takes a different view of the same issue. Hopefully my next post highlights that a little bit. But yea, word spam.. it's all I can do.

If there was no war for like say 3-4 turns, I'd throw in the cyrvans as a "random event", If I were Spoon.
Well, to late already

Re: General forum game discussion
Could have thrown in some other faction/universe event instead of the Cyrvans as well. I had an idea of what but forgot...

How is everyone else finding the game so far?

Re: General forum game discussion
Turn has been turned, Actual shots fired.

Missiles seem really strong at the moment, but I don't wanna draw any conclusions yet after a single battle.

Regarding shields: Since these regenerate after each battle, I'm not going to change the number on the map. So don't get confused if they should be at zero or some other number after getting fired on.

Regarding Center/Centre: Since I'm copy pasting a bunch of orders from different threads, there will be a delightful inconsistency between British/American spelling, you will all have to deal with it :cool:

Regarding 'overwatch' commands as I remember someone coining that term. <-- lemme get back on that later, I wanna type stuff on this subject but not right now.

Re: General forum game discussion
Spoon, I hate to do this to you but you resolved the Aldebaran Tactical Combat wrong:

3rd CRF Orders were:
1. ------------------
2. ADVANCE 3rd CRF Right PORT
3. ADVANCE 3rd CRF Right PORT
4. ADVANCE 3rd CRF Centre FORWARD
5. 3rd CRF Centre FIRE AT 1st DD Right

you resolved 2 and 3 for the wrong part of the fleet (Centre instead of Right)

and I targeted the wrong flank, figures

Welp, I was about to suggest that we pull back from Aldebaran, but apparently front-line reports were erroneous.  :p Rumours of casualties were greatly exaggerated.

(was supposed to be an edit but there is a reply now)

I guess we can accept the results as-is... but I want to point it out for future reference

I'm all for reducing the damage taken, simply for rewarding fair play. Orph3us could have kept mum and nobody would have ever known.

But then Spoon kills me for suggesting he should redo everything, so I keep my mouth shut.

No need to bend over backwards on my account; I have one more reason to fall back and get my free Veteran upgrade now...


BTW if the 3rd CRF were to return now to a CRF planet and get its free Veteran upgrade from the Academy, does the fleet retains it's combat XP?
