Lost my 1300 shadows on some stupid def a few weeks before round ended.

Another extremely bad planet rank round for me. Had my worst luck attacking ever seeing as my plan of roiding fat edts for xp turned out to not be so smart seeing as every edt had no value. After a month of def on 4\5 attacks i kind ofgave up attacking and instead started using my highly effective fleet defending instead, something which atleast did some good.

Did not enjoy this round at all, it truly cannot get any worse than this, neither planetwise or fun wise.

Started off pretty well, was top20 value for 2/3 of the round, top terran most of the time. But it was impossible to hold onto roids, so i decided pretty early that i was going to whore refineries and fc's, it worked pretty well, kept my value high since i couldnt hold onto roids, i was mining what most of the top planets were most of the round. I went for a balanced fleet at the start, had syrens and bs.

Started to attack ziks with syren and dems only faked as my bs fleet, this worked pretty well as they would get anti bs def, keep thiefs home incase of fake de, usually ran there clippers pirates etc, because of wyverns and dragons, so my syrens just twatted the thiefs and dems picked up the roids.

Syrens became pretty useless when all etd's would do is whore dealers and what not, so i never built more, then i lost them all I never attacked with BS, maybe a couple thats about it. I was mainly de with harpies, my harpy+dems got through alot on targets hence I could pick up roids alot. But yeah i decided to let my bs die at home for salvage and whore de for the rest of the round, I had more but lost a few in the end.

Funniest moment of the round: Kept getting cov opped so i decided to spend each tick and cancel right at the end. The first tick i tried it i forgot and ended up ordering like 4.5k harpies, so i cancelled and lost alot of res

What a terrible round! Although id like to thank #ascendancy for making it rather enjoyable at some times

edit

More too add, once i hit 700-800 drakes and chims, i decided im not going to need more, so just pumped pegs, and started hitting xans with 20-25k banshee which was my aim, also to scare banshee def, i must say my de fleet never once encountered a real banshee fleet, they always ran because losses were so high for them, and pegs were the most underrated de of the round. I attacked agony solo forced him to spend his whole stock on bansheees forcing him upto 60k banshees. Big xans had between 20k-40k banshee but i still took them expecting losses but never had any

The nixes and harpies in my fleet where last day spent res decided to kill some incs

Gaining 1.4 mil in a week isn't bad, even if it's done by xp. I usually go for value but was way too lazy to do that now + didn't have the time to play decent.

Ter DE rocked against fat etd's, pitty though most em them were xp whores

Sidenote: one of the worst rounds i've ever played: stats, alliances, overall boringness...
I thought this was supposed to be a wargame, not a "who can do galraids & get most xp" game

Decided to pick another race than Cathaar to try and hold on to roids a bit better and thus grow some decent value, but this obviously didn't work out well with the stats in favour of XP. No matter what my value was (usually around top50), as soon as i got above 400 roids again i would be hit and roided. Also didn't have much 'luck' at the start by landing on alot of targets who had under 150 roids left by the time i'd land, due to doublebooking/piggies.

Really enjoyed the BS fleet as there weren't alot of times i had to recall it (and for some reason they were mistaken for DE on quite a few occasions leading me to kill quite a few Thiefs), unlike the DE fleet which was frequently defended by Thiefs / Banshees (of faked ones). With a few exceptions I never attacked with the Chims as they were on def duty nearly every day. One thing i learned that with XP its almost pointless to even bother to help others defend their roids if you want to get a decent rank, as basicly any day i shifted my focus to defending (be it with 2 or 3 fleets) i dropped ranks. All in all a pretty shit round due to all the incoming (FR/DE and FI) that i couldn't protect myself from regardless of the value i invested in the anti-ship, but not to unhappy about where i ended.

I did my standard 'do all my scan tech before I start attacking' act. This round it worked remarkably well, going from around 800th when I started attacking to 17th at the end. I only lost a significant amount of ships when I forgot to move 100 returning syrens away from dealer incoming. I tried the usual DE as BS fakes to begin with, but I couldn't find enough Xan active enough to have their Banshees out that were worth hitting with DE. And besides, I got better XP off Etd targets most of the time. So I used my DE unfaked and my BS unfaked.

I wouldn't call this the dullest round ever, primarily because the last week has been hilarious. Between the attack set up on Caj (along with the ensuing drama and action), jerome being closed for racism and then reopened when remy realized he 'couldn't be racist' and DeLoS winning the round, it was a good week. And really, a good week is all I need from a round of PA. A good round and I might spend too much time on it.

I spent most the round t10. Instead of just going CO only like I had originally planned I decided to build a decent CR fleet to complement my CO. Then I took a chance and lost my whole CR fleet and didn't really recover, (despite the fact that dealers laughed at cat CR and I prefered CO anyway.) I tried to do a balance of value and xp, but it failed....

Anyway I organized probably the best attack ever seen in the history of pa against Forest on the last day that involved the brilliant skills of Roy Makaay and Mark van Bommel, however he was able to thwart even those 2.

i tried play value whore from the start... got some roids and tried to protect them.. kept them for awhile and before long i found myself if first spot.. i held first spot for the majority of the round before mac/elviz made me spend(far far too much of my stock).. this opened up the round

Next night i had 16 waves and my galaxy had 200~ fleets.. OUCH! heh.

i decided to make a move for #1 planet and i broke the nap with VGN with encouragement from mac/elviz/jer lol... reason why ? boring round. Xp sucked. I wanted a bit of fun -- anyways! landed on agony for schweet xp and a huge fc for my trouble lost fr/cr/bs (i shud of ran it but fell asleep ) (ps: fr/cr was fc'd)... my fi died the tick after vs crusies' pegasus... thus i tried xp whore on last days and managed to get back to top ten yay

my fleet is like pure de and pure co, left overs from my trouncing

least the last 3 days had a bit of energy and zest in them

\o/

ROLL ON A 100% VALUE ROUND

my biggest mistake was making those ****ing shadows which i had to either leave a fleet home or pray to god i don't incoming for - if you're one of the 2 terrans who 3 waved me with a meagre amount of leviathons for me to build em **** you!

fleet composition wise, i attacked terrans with phant/bansh/wraith and etd's with apparitions, with some phantoms if the terran target didn't have all that many nixes. the biggest problem with xan was that, not only was it impossible to keep roids whilst being ascendancy at least, but also that xp was extremely difficult to gain since my own viable targets were terrans and etd: both of whom had barely any high value/roids players.

round in itself was pretty awful, but i still stuck with it attacking in and all out with a couple of lapses when i went clubbing with deep and nod, waking up to find my #1 roids planet with several, several uncovered waves heh. i stuck with it, choosing my targets carefully each night figuring out where i'd be the likeliest to land knowing that i'd need around 500+ xp (yes, 500; it's nothing but keep in mind i played as a VALUE xan, and was t100 value all round) with each landing, aiming for 1k xp usually really and with my persistence i eventually kept going and going and burst into a t10 contention regardless of my inability to keep roids due to the plain ridiculous amount of etd bs incoming i received. thanks to achilles, crusie, furbie_fanatic, spas and anyone else who defended me this round! qebab too, for wasting a slot on the last night

other than my planet management, i had a little bit of fun as i always seem to do these days, chitchatting with various hc's and officers, discussing the round and possible future moves and scenarios this seems to be a habit i've picked up off old bwtmc. plus, the whole business of wasting hours with shoshuro/barrow (and jesterina for the initial idea!) on organising ridding 60% (12k+) roids off 2:5 a few days before the end of the round was quite rewarding in the end too, especially with the chain of destructive events that followed concerning gosu/destiny.

all in all, i'm basically awesome. seriously awesome. and these stats were awful.

Should have ended with 693 roids, but I got roided right before the end apparently; I was out drinking all day and cba with PA

Pretty dull round. I played a freebie and started pt 300-ish I think, getting increasingly active as time went on. Made it almost all round without getting roided, or even attacked for that matter...which I thought was odd, given my size lately.

I focused on Cath planets with too few beetles, and Terrans with too few Harpies. Found someone's farm right at the end and nicked some 393 roids off it in three waves

Stats were pretty damn crap...wtf was up with the Wraith's initiative, I don't know :/

Re: R20 Who were you?

7:9:2 Unholy Damnation of Holy Deliverance, Xan, 972,000 value and 3.1mill score.

Phantoms were lame without emp res, apparitions, banshees, wraiths and illusions were great. Everything else sucked, although the DE that targets co is decent if you had the odd 200mill laying around that you could afford a decent number of them.

I was top10 value and top25 rank early into the round didnt get enough def but the main failing for this round for xans were the inneffectiveness of the frigs, simple as. The ghost wasn't really useful either unless again you had plenty of res to spare. Eventually I just xp whored (I'm bad at it) and finished the round feeling annoyed at how uber the etd bs were.

I got hammered the first few nights by 5+ waves and even more attackers. With out roids the growth was slow but I eventually caught up by round end. The last day was awesome as an attacker felt I needed more ships and resources to finish the round with.

Size: 175 1306
Value: 1,154,514 216
Score: 2,866,554 267
XP: 28,534 319

Can't remember exactly what my fleet was in the end but something like this (before the last 2 days atleast)
Wyvern 46 Dragon 67 Levitan 49
Voyager 1000 Vendor 5500
Ranger 450 Dealer 1650
Merchant 550 Investor 350
Tycoon 400 Broker 100
Rambler 200 Balif 80

Started slow as always and the finish crap just as the previous rounds
attacking Ter with my FR and xan or Etd with BS all round long. Don't think I ever attacked any cath or Zik. would have loved to steal some rouges to keep xans off my back but Vendors worked well. In one of many stupid moments I bought those Investors wich i regreted for the rest of the round as they were too few to be good for def and I always required a slot to flee them when incs were around. Most usless ship of the round for me atleast.
Had a few guest apearences in top 100 but usually dropped out again a few days later. Wasn't so hard to land but found it hard to keep roids as Edt. (I guess most others did as well this round tho)

Messed everything up in true muppet manner 3/4 days before round was over.
First got my bs cought by a terr when returning home. Got no love for Chims :\ Next tick I lost 90% of my FR couse I couldn't log in to move them in time due to being busy at work. So when last evening came I decided to go to bed to sleep ratrher than attack 1 last time as I was too tired and didn't really care any more. Didn't log in to move ships the following day so lost a bunch more and ended in red on the last day of the round again :P

Wasn't really much exiting round for me. Being an uninformed twat I found it rather boring mostly. I still enjoyed it tho but glad it's over. Bring on round 21 already!

Oh.
And thanks to those Terrans that attacked me with bs when I had a nice stack of res res saved. Those ships were quite usefull to me even if I lost a bunch along the way

Worst. Round. Ever.

The sole aim this round was to piss off as many top planets as possible. I built only CR and attacked in a small BG most nights. <3 elviz and voodoo

If it hadnt been for that id not have finished this round. And tbh, the only thing of note i did was making Caj spend his entire stockpile a few days before the round end.

Fleetwise, I had ~1500 roach. 600 tula and 300 hornets. + customary spiders for faking.

Killed many a structure this round.

Led early on despite the recall bug pulling me from 3 targets ETA 1, fell away to outside the top 100 then settled on a serviceable DE fleet and stockpiled, playing for XP, sitting in the middle of the top 100. Then spent stockpile and went after larger players for bigger XPs in the last week, landing on the likes of Caj. Finished poorly with a silly fleetcrash as I just saw lots of piggies and couldn't be bothered to check, cost me 350k score.

Can't say it was really exciting until I started mixing it with the big boys. Up to then roiding easy Etds was hardly fun.

Re: R20 Who were you?

I have to say playing for value is more fun. I researched xan fr early so I didn't get attacked at all before advanced units saw daylight. I think I got first attacked around tick 300 or later. Also because of the lack of fleet analysis there was no need to spend all the resources on ships so I basically roided people with minimal fake fleets with pods only and stockpiled resources. This quickly resulted in a top 5 value rank. Once AU's appeared I built quite a large amount of shadows which I think were underestimated as self defensive ships. Etd's weren't value heavy enough to hit xans with lots of shadows early. The first real problems came when cathaars started massing roaches (hello `mac^, elviz and voodoo). However being value heavy helped getting a lot of stuff covered without ally defence. HOWEVER, after QEBAB SCREWED MY PRECIOUS FLEET (yes yes it wasn't even a bad crash but don't trust qebab to dc!), I decided to try something completely different...

Before reset at tick 735 as a xan:

Size: 634 75
Value: 1,453,119 7
Score: 1,969,059 45
XP: 8599 634

Then planet reset, bs research, landed first etd bs attack around tick 900. Three fleeting for 10 days straight with bs, and round ended like this:

You are: The hot flavor (10:6:7) (Clear)
Size: 779 82
Value: 585,720 857
Score: 4,060,200 38
XP: 57,908 12

Worst and easiest round ever. I hope they come up with something new or this game is dead.

Top 50 value, not even top 150 in score. I hate XP.
Other than that, i had fun playing zik. Having a stockpile meant almost 0 incs.
The most fun was faking my rogues + my 12 baliffs (<3) as cr on xans without shadows and few ghosts.

I also happen to hit whatever target looks good to me, be it under my own value, or over it.
As i happen to be a value player, i don't just concentrate on my attack fleet, but also on defence ships and a balanced fleet altogether, which usually makes it more difficult to roid high value players.

One weekend i got bored and decided to play 1 more round. I signend up two weeks after tickstart. I choose Zik cause my plan was to go for value since i already knew im not gonna be active. When people would land on me, i could at least cap sum ships back. After suicided most of my fleets in the first 2 weeks i played, i decided to XP-whore. I went only for reffineries and 3-fleeting. I could only login to claim targets and build reffineries. I landed 99% of my attacks blind, wasted loads of ships that way, but i couldnt be arsed about it.
I only picked targets at least twice as higher in value than i was, my attackfleet was only DE. Seems this worked out for me with a minimal of activity, thats ridiculious!!!
I managed to end #76 and #1 Xp-whores for zikkies.

It have been a blast, Salute
