Quoting Timmaigh, reply 47Was it you, who got beaten by Turchany?
I don't even know who Turchany is....I also haven't played on ICO for quite a while, so unless he's referring to an Internet Spades game I've played recently then no....
Besides, haven't you heard about my grand victory over Radio? All I did was wail his ass despite sucking at everything else and he still is pissy about it...not like Turchany's story is unique or highly suspect....
LOL Ashanti never defeated Seleuceia, I only played once, on his side in a 5v5, probably lost because he was trying to go only starbase on the other front (Vasari), trying out if that is possible.
So I go by the name Ashanti, propably never heard of it as I rarely have the chance to play online, and I can't play on the weekends for an unfortunate reason.
Anyway, i dont really give a shit whether VL get banned from competitive play, nor any other faction for that matter. It is just funny to observe all these "ban this, ban that" shenanigans. I would bet the moment VL got banned, someone would find out that lets say TEC Rebels are OP compared to remaining factions as well, cause you know, they have TAR and Ragnarov can beat a shit out of Ankylon/Coronata...and whatever else... seems like for everyone to be happy there can be only one single faction, otherwise this stream of complaints wont stop.
The problem is that WAIL, JUMPING SB, and VORASTRA is significantly better than anything else in the game. Otherwise you are saying interesting things, but it would end ridiculous if people started to say OP on every good stuff.. But a Ragnarov is not even near invincible, not to mention other good toys, the things written in capital letters are hardly counterable and require so much attention like a brain operation.
Advent Rebel without wail, VR without jumping starbase are allowed online, but VL cannot be restricted in an OK way, players cannot tell VL not to build a titan LOL. More and more games ban VL and personally I like this banning as no other faction is as hard as it is, maybe VR is close, but the other two races' factions.. Only if they had the time and resources to build up properly and the VL player haven't (like it's possible when the VL is an eco player..).
Anyway you admit you dont like Vasari, so clearly you are biased here. For the record, so am i, as i like Vasari
OK I don't like Vasari, boom. It was my favourite before coming online, both factions because they were the easiest to kill AI with, as AI stood absolutely no chance against them, but in no circumstances was it a competitive fight neither from my side (as I was just a noob all the time as I look back to my playstyle), neither from AI (as it was cheating all the time).. And in competitive play for me Vasari factions are OP and many agree with it, both factions have so many innate unbalanced things like the phase missile upgrades, offensive early starbases, best late game fleet, supported by a not-much-worse economy than TEC race.. And I wasn't even mentioning the faction-specific stuff. OK many of these can be countered inefficiently, but the things banned from multiplayer games cannot, and Vorastra is becoming one of this group, as even with medium level micro from the owner is it near impossible to kill. Not to mention Advent VS Vasari comparison, the advantage for Vasari is so huge I can only just laugh that it is still not changed in a patch...............................................
