If someone ever takes it to an exxtreme, they will deserve the pounding they get. 20 SDSFs don't make much of a home defence...

No.

So tell me Bane - do you ever build a small ship with the aim to recycle it or not?

It is a nearly unkillable vine that grows at a staggering rate.
At the time, the members of that 5man VGAP team lived in:
Louisiana, Mississippi & Florida.

The other members of that team moved on to EVE:Online

I googled it. It will be over your house - in your windows and tying you to your chair as you snooze before you know it....

Kudzu is a bonkers vine.
It can grow IIRC up to 18" per day.

Kinda like the Borg - just when you think you've wiped them out there's more of the buggers....

Hawkeye,

I've only removed 1 person for queue stuffing in the 3+ years I've been hosting. That only happened after multiple warnings that were disregarded. The player in question had over 200 ships relatively early in a game.
Yup, but does building a sdsf and recycling it the next turn constitute "queue stuffing"....?

I don't think so. Keeping it so that the ship slot is filled, that according to me is Q stuffing.

When does this alleged Q stuffing stop :?: and what designates a crappy ship :?:

If its 2/3rds to 3/4's of the way through a game, and as the empire you build crappy SSD's that cant possibly get to the front before games end, is that Q stuffing :?:

Maybe in the occassional team game its been abused, who knows, its all amatter of perspective. I have no problems with players trying it in any game i play here.

I certainly find it less questionable that the scenario below....

" 4 races killraced for cheating and hence you would think could play no further part in a game. Yet through the addon give planet, the Romulan are able to build a base, load it with torps, give the planet to the crystals (who were killraced for cheating) and then change the starbases fc to LWF"

Both exploit so called limitations of the addons/game, one being a 500 ship limit, the other being that killrace doesnt actually do it :roll:
Rather like having your cake and eating it, being choosey about which explotations of game limitations are acceptable and which are not.

Of course this now begs the question,........ since there is also a 500 minefield limit, am i mine stuffing if i lay hundreds of pointless little minefields around the place just so the others cannot, especially the crystal and his webs :?:
