Can you send me the relevant files?
I only got the turn 5 RST and DAT file.
No xyplan etc.

Unless I can somehow request those from the troll, then teach me :-)

Only the xyplan.dat is sent along with your rst. The rest of the files are the standard ones.
I resend the xyplan to your mailbox just in case,

Oh drat, I have never seen a game spoiled in 5 turns like this before.

Who the #^$*(#^$#@@! would raise all the base tech levels, and then not build ships with them ??

Sorry to say, this game is unsalvagable, I'll do damage control, but I guess everyone can breathe easy knowing there won't be any real privateer action. Real shame too, as the location was awesome :(

Well it explains the score.

It is a shame in many ways, a new player lost perhaps forever due to a very bad beginner mistake.

A game with a drop before it even really started.

When picking up a dropout, always remember to think positive about what can be done, instead of what could have been done. :)

Hi @all,
first of all - let me say sorry. I controlled the Priv before and due the lack of time (new project at work) I decided to drop before it gets busy (and I was hoping there will be a replacement so early in game)

@Fireage: Hmmm it sounds like the turn was "manipulated" by the KI. As I dropped, the tech-levels were 5,10,5,5. If you like I can send you the previous RSTs ;)

Ciao
Marcel

No worries mate, you don't have to prove anything, I believe you :-)

And our gracious host allowed me to sell the useless tech levels.
So maybe the privateer will live on in this game, giving nightmares to all who oppose them ;-)

Game on!

Doesn't appear to me that it mattered what the original Privateer did.

Looks like the only reason the Privateers joined this game was to hand off all his assets to the Crystals and the Rebels. Not much playing to be seen.

Have seen enough of this before.
been there, done that...
