There was a decent battle going on, I remember seeing about 3-4enforcers, 2-3 transporters, 5-6 assailiants, 2-3skirms, not some uber fleet. 3proph had just gotten 1st fleet right before the dump, I remember him saying, "alright guys, I got number 1 now, we gotta get those gates" I know for a fact we were 1,2 and 3 in col, and eco. I think i was 4th in fleet, being probablly, Hunting hit second, astax 3, me 4, and jinx or whoever who just got wiped by 3proph, was eitehr 5or6. I had a quarter of my fleet at his astroid taking out the 1 gate that was there, with our 3rd player placing his 17 timed explosives on the 1 in his home world. I recall scouting Astax nonestop, with his planet and his astriod, he was poo for income, and only had 11, maybe 12 Heavys, I had 15carrier/bombers rdy to keep them busy while I sent my othr 41 LRMS around the backside of HUntingx to split his force and help take out more gates.
The game could have gone either way, with our strong eco, and extensive colonization, we could overcome what you guys had created. IMO that is. Its hard to tell, RA is a very strong ability, but with the right tactics its easily overcome, expecially if no one has a decent eco. and you DONT have an eco with RA, unless you estabilished one prior to increasing fleet capacity. you slowly get credits, and you had home, say 15crd/s, astriod, maybe 2 crd/s, and an ice planet, so maybe 20-25ish crd/sec max, but with paying 1500 credits per gate, and not to mention the extensive research cost, plus the huge penatly of lvl 5 fleet supply, you maybe were getting 15crd/sec. And you had just gotten RA maybe 5-10minutes before dump, because not a single one of you went eco, so if you really did have 10 gates, then all three players were pitching in and placed all your eggs in that one basket.
But either way, it was a tight match, that kept us on our toes. I remember when Astax jumped in and had like 21 LRMs to my like 7 at first in early game, I had two frig factories so I pumped 20 Flak and quickly turned the 21 (with more coming every sec) into about 12, and then the rest of them fleed towards 3proph and I sent Half of my flak (22 at that time) to follow with backup, since 3proph was ingaged with jinx at that time.
It was a nice game, and I definetly look forward to playing again. As long as we dont have any spam or flame messages against anyone without reason, there should be no sense in anyone hating on anyone in this community. ICO deserves better.
This company is putting alot into this product, instead of just dumping it on the shelves, and are still supporting this game like crazy, I understand competitiveness, and enjoy it, but still we are a community at whole here and its our job to be positively competitive, not negative. We are here to attract more players to the community, not scare them off from hateful messages.
I really enjoyed the game with you guys and look forward to the next match. Until next time, good luck in your games, and we will see you online
