Topic: What about ending the game now?
Replies: 6

I'll vote for ending the game with the top 3 as Bots - Feds - Birds, everything else seems more or less a waste of time. To discourage you further, I'm not stocking the queue with useless ships, at the moment Echoview fleet summary shows 35 instrus, 29 golems, and 31 automas + 36 cats paws. Of cours...

Re: PHost & Ion storm

... just wondering how can a privateer ship tow me away from an ion storm and more importantly, stay cloacked orbiting the planet turn 39 :D I know its been a while since my last PHost game but at least this one keeps surprising me :) Ion storm effects happen before movement. That is, you can move ...

First Virgo down

... have to admit, took some time since I failed the first attempt miserably - forgot the PHost battleorder that NUK-planets fight with code 000 and my carefully planned battle order was an epic fail. But, a fit ending for backstabber-campaign and as you can see from the CM-game scorechart the fight...

The outcome might be obvious for the robots, but there is still a lot of fighting going on, especially for the lower ranks. We've just hit shiplimit, and more and more is happening every turn. I think it's too early to end the game. I would propose, however, to switch to a schedule of 2 or 3 turns ...

Vote to end

The game has obviously processed to the point where standings are most likely final and won't move much until something really dramatic happens. The birds may be dropping out (missed 2/3 atm). So, all in favor, pick your choice - all good for me but I'll just vote now :D Thanks all anyway for playin...

Theres a fine line between game becoming boring and totally unmanageable. In my experience, daily games, such as Chrismas Chaos, should be played on smaller cluster - max 300 planets or so. 1st reason : if your empire grows rapidly you end up spending a lot of time managing it. And doing it daily be...

Well, this sucks a bit from my point of view as wiped out Empire HW and got one fuelless Gorbie on tow. Too bad there was a missed TRN (didnt know it naturally b4 hand :D) but shit happens. Anyway, its a bit likely that Hennef now knows whats gonna happen and can prepare for it accordingly.... But, ...

well, the enormously fast growing empire stumbles across one tiny weakness in its ingenuity: lack of firepower! DAMN! I think this will be the end. But at least it will be a fast end! :D Lets see how this continues... SSD's are quite useless if they're spread all over the galaxy without an escort -...
