A 5v5 I played in a 5 system map. All 10 players located in 2 systems. Being newer then I was, I did my fleet building and all, and got a decent sized fleet. I was co-ordinating with an ally who was on the other side of an enemy, and we got ready to hit him. We both got delayed, as the player hit me, and rebels hit him. I had had no real fleet before, so I kind of surprised him this time, managing to pick off one of his capitals, while no damage was done to me. He then hit one of my 3 planets with a sizable fleet that I thought was his entire fleet. Whoops. I went and hit one of his planets and found a fleet there. He kept sending a ton of reinforcements, which I held out on for a long time, doing a sizable amount of damage to his planet's structures, and his ships, while he demolished my planet meanwhile. I'd had defenses, but they were nowhere near enough. I did some damage there, I suppose. My ally had hit him meanwhile to find out that he had backup, and another(If smaller) fleet. Not sure what happened to my partner overall in that game, but I'm assuming they lost, especially as we had a drop where two of our players became AIs. I built up a fleet of like 40 LRMs at my last planet, and when he came in a huge fleet, I managed to get his level 7 capital ship, atleast. =P
Was my first good online experience.
