Those warp gates are expensive
A lot of back and forth smash action between @Karmadrome and I so far, but I’ve built some momentum over the last half-cycle, at the cost of some warp gates, fortunately about as many of his as mine.
That’s a pretty wild game you guys are having - at tick #234, @MalcolmReynolds is barely leading @Karmadrome 84-82 … but he is ahead in all the stats and has TWICE the Science … but only leads in Scan and Terra.
Recall that Science is cheap (to try to balance out just being an Indy-fest) … so I’m curious how that strategy is playing out and/or if you guys think any parameters should be adjusted.
I think the parameters are fine the way they are.
can ya’ll contact me for the next 1v1? I wanna take part in some of this
When we have another 1v1 tournament, I’ll try to remember to ping this thread.
The winner will advance against @nick.muzzio … and from there, onto the Finals against the Jolly Green Giant!
I’ll also join the next tourney! Ping me if I miss the post please!
…and against all the odds @Karmadrome takes the lead
Seriously though, @MalcolmReynolds has played a great game and I have the cuts and bruises to show.
I’m still just about hanging on, but don’t expect that lead to last very long.
How do you make those mirrored maps?
@Golden_Ace - you have to ask Jay to enable your account to create Mirrored Maps.
Indeed, the steamroller action vs. @Karmadrome has begun. I hope he enjoyed his last taste of being “in the lead”.
BTW, while I’ve been waiting, I played a 1v1 versus Solfyre (no forum name of the same?) and he promptly kicked my big fat hairy green a** - D’OH!
He had a good suggestion that maybe if Banking was Cheap, this would balance that tech more and provide yet another “interesting” option for players to consider - seems like a good idea. Any thoughts/comments?
I like the idea, anything that makes it hard to decide what to research is always a good idea to me. analysis paralysis ftw!
@Solfyre? I think this is him lol.
I like the idea of cheap banking, could make things interesting with more viable options at the start.
EDIT: Ok he joined 5 hours ago, that explains it
And I agree on making bank more valuable.
Thanks guys! And especially @panblanco , those are some very nice words. I very much appreciate playing with you too! And yes, I wasn’t on the forum officially until just now. Better late than never.
Pretty sure I didn’t “bump” into @Solfyre until earlier this year, but yea … fearsome friend … and even more fearsome foe.
He won the most recent Last Hero game (I was on the other side) and did a serious “SMASH the HULK” in a 1v1 game. Hoping he’ll consider playing in our next tournament as he’s a worthy opponent.
Speaking of which, this 1v1 tournament (started in April - LOL!) is almost done as there is just three players left. Should we start up another one … and yea, I really like @Solfyre’s idea of making Banking cheap so I’ll propose that modification to the parameters.
