Norse had two days with more than 40 incs all round, thanks to Brams stats we can see your lying. Unless sending 30ish fleet a-night at someone is targetting.

Unfortunately such was the state to which p3n attacks had got to by the end of last round 40 would have been pretty reasonable night.

Looking at his stats the 39 incs on day 40 would be p3n's first attempt. The 107 on the third last day presumably fl. Then the 58 on the second last p3n. Perhaps you should take a chance to look at the stats before you immediately decide that what I am saying dont match them. I should also note that in both cases we had some ult targets on our raid too simply to keep them occupied - something I objected to at the time as a pointless division of firepower. (But then I was against hitting Norse at all and in favour of helping them rather than hindering them).

So sending 30ish fleets at someone actualy is what p3nguins means by targetting, so by all means, then p3nguins was probly the alliance that was most active on targetting other allies.

I would define targeting by how you are raiding not by the number of fleets as I am sure you would too. If you are hitting a galaxy it is gal raiding. If you are hitting one alliance it is ptargeting. If two it is split targeting. In this instance it was split but with at more than half (in practice if not in theory due to norse being considerably better targets - actual target numbers up equal) on norse. So 20 attack fleets all on one alliance if that is all the alliance sends out would indeed be ptargeting. But similarly it could be 150.

On the subject of which p3n has been ptargeting bows for over a week now... and a good chunk of the time they have been ptargeting us back. It seems to be going nowhere fast.

Maybe they are entering the stages of where they create a 4 allie block just to stop p3nguins from winning

It is fairly common for alliance activity to decline sharply near round end, when it becomes clear the win is out of reach.

Why would they? You make very little sense.

Re: R66 who will win

So how is everyone planning to stop the value juggernaut that is BF?

Question is will Ult be able to gather enough allies to their side to help or has their enmity alienated too many allies?

Re: R66 who will win

i'm surprised how many actually can't see BF is running away with it. Thing is, Ult is pure FI and has no way to roid BF.
So guys, its a BF win unless the other allies block agaisnt a less traditional favourite and take them down. Ult will do Ults thing, but by looks of it will come in second behind, as mz eloquently puts it, the BF value juggernaut.

Re: R66 who will win

I think its pretty obvious that zik/cat value players will have the edge over low value xan planets in the second half of the round.
The xp-game is alot of fun.... untill you stop landing.

Let's see if Ult tries to mend fences and form a proper block. I don't see CT forming it against BF. Nor some of the other allies caring enough this round to do so.

As Kaiba mentions value unlike xp goes down as well as up. It is also easy to slow its growth if you take BF's roids so it is certainly still possible to halt BF.

First you show up on CTs public channel on a friday night and have some quality youtube music URLs ranging from Eagles - hotel california to the prodigy's smack my bitch up and talk to GM about the good old days.

You also NEVER ... EVER slap Hedgie in public channel, thats like saying to king of the old days that your Queen as Ugly as XXXX

and if you don't show up with the following tribute in PM to sweeten the deal.

Re: R66 who will win

Unlike the rest of the uni, ct and ult won't land BF. We warred them for 2-3 days, putting around 400 fleets on them in that timeframe, didnt land much because of strat. So that's entirely up to the rest of you ReaperSix if you want BF down.

Paisley, I'm enjoying some recreational time more or less away from pols Schools out!

Why would we want BF down? Yes there is the traditional fear of a hegemon but is it really in our interests to put our heads above the parapet?
And why should we be any more likely to succeed? We are a mostly xan alliance just like you are, just one that is less successful at xping hence our terrible rank. Sure we do have cats but they are mostly meant to be def planets this round, hardly the tip of an offensive force capable of taking down BF. This then leads back to the parapet, if we cant win it is much safer to stay off the radar and hope BF avoid us.

So as an alliance which I believe it is 90+% Xan they can't land on an alliance with no cloaked defence where half the viable def ships don't even make alliance ETA. Surely it's possible to soak up a large chunk of the defence with fakes and then cripple the caths with mass incomming. No matter how good BF are they only have a finite amount of def value and Ult has up to 180 attack fleets which are cloaked

Ult have played so little interest to their own value this round surely wasting a bit to blow up some clippers and roid BF down would be worth it, they have their guaranteed xp gains to sit on

They have more than 2x our value already and emp eff is crazy.

You do need some value to get xp so crashing our already small fleets makes sense yes

Do you know how lazy BCs are these days? .... pfft.
I didnt say they were unroidable .... on all 6 ship classes.
However as as GM and eksero put it? "where is my carrot? "
Politically BF can ride the political wave because the Politics men of the major alliances aren't budging on their stances and its like northern Ireland politics back in the day.... If I was to do drunken karaoke I would be sing Zombie by the cranberries.

Re: R66 who will win

The carrot is the thrill of the hunt. The trying to do what people say can't be done. If BF already are too far ahead then what do you have to lose. If you can't win the current environment then don't just let them roll past you. Make them earn it

All BF has to do is keep farming roids and sit pretty and let politics take care of themselves as I've previously explained, Unless clouds does some stupid shit like claiming No one can Roid us.

I'm afraid even guinness wouldn't do any good since GM claims we are cheaters, and I'm pretty sure he wouldn't want to associate himself with a bunch of shady characters!

Murphy's is no good man!

Gzambo is not playing with us.

Yes that wouldn't surprise me!

Edit: I have been informed he is indeed playing with us!

Yeah, being TA'd doesn't take much effort I guess, except for the person that does it...unless ofc, he is controlling you all.

Also wouldn't classify the usual 90 planets as not trying - won't even be able to moan about blocking this round because no one cares.

At the end of the day like I said previously, in our experience BF's def always was better than Ult's ever was, even taking into account race selection this round.

You don't need defense to deal with incomings from an alliance less than half your value, especially when you have much of it in ships that hard counter them. See Ultores' score graph when they hit BF and when they hit CT.

Losing value harms your ability to gain XP. If you don't have much to begin with, and you land this, then this happens instead of this.
