    The game I'm in started a bit earlier than you guys', and it only took a couple days to go from "At current mining rate X will win in 30 days" to "X will win in 5 days" as people snapped up all the empty outposts and people started getting knocked out. Mining rate depends on the number of outposts, and it starts to add up quick.

    None of us can knock eachother out!

    Oh, I wouldn't be too sure about that.

    There are a couple in our game who are weak enough to knock out with a combined effort.

    Turtling only helps for so long. At some point you gotta take risks or people will gain too much momentum for you to catch up to.

    Hmm. Well, I suppose my game had a few AFKers that made things a bit easier on that front.

    Side note: do not leave your queen undefended overnight (or anywhere near your borders).

    The WeedLord, Vegeta... is a liar, and a traitor, and a coward. No stock can be put in their word. Whatever agreements you may have made with them, trust that they will be violently shattered.

    I did what I had to do to secure a place at the table. Once tal is removed, I have no vested interest in further quarrels.

  • LasbrookLasbrook It takes a lot to make a stew When it comes to me and youRegistered User regular
    So I decided to grab this game and have been working through the challenges. I can't tell if the interface is bad or I'm just not grasping it as there have been a couple of times I knew what I needed to do but couldn't manage to make the game do it.

    Specialists 6:
    So I know I need to get the tinkerer to raise my electrical output so I can have drillers to protect Vintgar and I can't hire one until 4 hours in the future but I can't like manage to scrub the time forward and hire a specialist. cause as soon as I leave the time dial and click on specialists it reverts back.

    How do?

    You can hire through the queen as well - she should have the option to "jump to hire" too so you don't have to dick with the time thingy either.

    I feel like I'm playing okay.

    But it's nerve wracking because I can't tell who's attacking who, and it seems to change daily and I'm afraid if I launch subs at one I'll see like three different colors headed my way.

    I have yet to actually attack anyone! I'm honouring all my agreements and my borders look so pretty right now.

    Though they could look even prettier in the future perhaps.

    Bluedude and tal have wasted everything they had on a lost cause. I suggest you take advantage.

    In all honesty, what happened there was I overextended on my southeast to try and put tal out of the game for good.

    I knew I shouldn't have, I KNEW he and bluedude would eventually muster a revenge force against me, but I wanted to see if I could knock him out and then immediately turtle up.

    So when I saw all of bluedude's forces launching this morning, I knew I was basically out of the top 3. I COULD probably make something happen, but it'd be costly, bloody, and we'd be too battered to deal with anyone else.

    So I resigned. Now -tal and bluedude have to not only deal with the combat that's going to resolve, but they immediately have to figure out how to divy up the remnants of my empire before anyone else falls upon it, without stretching themselves too thin. All while stay friends, even though tal and I were attacking bluedude from the start.

    I COULD have sent a bunch of forces at bluedude, but I'd rather make my bases tough nuts to crack. Plus, it gives him more leverage over tal.

    I was sending my hypnotist up on a 43 fucking hour adventure to capture that infiltrator but I guess I'll send him home if the game continues that long.

    Anzekay is the only one in position to attack stilts

    It would take me days to even get to his border

    Also you cant win this war, I have over double your driller production and most of them are directly at your border. I can just keep sending 24 drillers at your base for the forseeable future

    Man its so weird to not need to log in to the game

    It's refreshing, really

    I feel like I have energy to divert towards creative ventures for the first time in awhile

    I do kinda wish there was a spectator mode though

    25Mj5br.png
  • StiltsStilts Registered User regular
    Oh yeah, spectator mode would be cool.

    Though they'd probably be worried about cheating via social media,

    Though that would likely only be feasible in private games, and if it occurs then just don't invite the cheaters again.
