You forgot the out of fighters part...

I much prefer the one Nova for one Skyfire deal :P

My ships don't fare well against Nova in a torp vs torp combat.
So I could give you more PBP, or go home for new fighters and go back...

Anyway, we are advancing on you much too slow to be able to lower your score enough before the end. :cry:

I agree, I don't see you holding ground long with me getting builds on the Front lines LOKIs are going to mess up your Cloaking Plans, the COM gifted me Virgos to offset your Death Stars, what a nice guy :D I did my best to deny you fuel/Minerals/cash and that is a huge void to be getting supplies across and I don't plan on crossing it again LOL.

Yup, you crossed over and paid for it. And now the same problem goes for me :lol:

Oh well, sometimes you loose a game even though you are winning it. I don't think in the end you would be able to deal with the 17 Death Stars we have, but by the time we get them to you, it will be turn 200...

Yup, like I said, just ally with the Colonies and our advanage quickly vaporizes. 2500kt mass on a death star is nice versus torp races, vs carrier races it will just make you loose the PBP war :mrgreen:

I would not be opposed to ending the game either, unless Fireage has something up his sleeve and is going to snatch first place away from Casebolt. I should add that I have more Virgos on the way to Federation Territory (They're just a bit stalled by the cheaty Q-Lizard who I formerly had a NAP with in its human form) (Also, we were already allied from near the beginning of the game-- I was working with Andor/The Feds prior to him leaving). Plus, laying tons of mines with my cobols.

...I think we can all agree we're playing a stalling game here til' 100. Anyone think there's going to be significant changes? =P

Sorry for the late reply, I was travelling and didn't bring my forum password :?

It's no problem for me to cut it short, I'll come scoop up that fleet of Nova to lower your score a bit and then we can stop 8)

Would be best to start a poll and post an in game message.
I'm sure most players are Fed up. :lol:

Yeah I must admit that in the end I really lost focus.

- I actually made a late night turn with baby + wife finally sleeping, but it didn't get in because I forgot to send the mail after I made it.... This killed several minefields which were on a move command from the previous turn, allowing you to send reinforcements.
- I miscalculated some minefields combined with movement, which resulted in a lot of mines swept for no drain [-X
- I split up the combat force with the Gorbies, resulting in half a fleet retreating for lack of fighting power.
- I kept flying weak ships into your base because I thought I was going to attack it, but then decided not to and didn't change orders for all ships..

All in all, not my best turns. Oh well, at least my ally kept going and though our border my not have moved much into your area, our other borders grew steadily :-)

But more about that in the review I'll write. Hope to find some time somewhere this weekend.
