I missed it? : (
Sorry you missed this one @gyts - I had left the thread open for a week.
Keep checking the forums as I’ll probably start another one in Feb or Mar.
So @DarkDragonwing and I are off to a fast start - already 4 cycles in at tick #96.
Might slow down a bit this weekend as I’m skiing, but nice to have the game move along.
He was leading in some of the stats, but I made a bold move to the Western Sector, so snarfed some stars from him. Plus I got Hyper2 early, so I was able to expand to the back-side … but he recently finished that, so he’ll be catching up in star count.
Still too early to tell who will prevail - we’ve had some carnage, but a lot more to come.
it’s been a fun/good game!
You’re not kidding. Around 34LY across the center of the map, would take over 4.5 days to cross from one end to the other. Making these moves is stressful!
It’s a great map for plenty of conflict. Tight contest at the moment.
FYI that after 306 ticks, I have finally prevailed against @DarkDragonwing
This was the first time he played a 1v1 … but I would have never guessed that as it was a furious fight. I got lucky with a HULK SMASH play for the Western Sector that gave me an edge in star count. I made a similar HULK SMASH move in the Eastern Sector, but @DarkDragonwing did some brilliant Warp Gate moves that stopped me cold … but it cost him some $$$ that enabled me to catch back up in the stats … and I eventually did an all-in move that succeeded and was able to blunt is counter-attack … plus his final last-chance desperate play for my core star which came close to succeeding.
A very enjoyable game that moved along fast against a formidable foe. You better watch out @Karmadrome when you play him in round #2 of the round-robin tournament!
