EoRC Round 12: 24/12/04

<A2> go for it then
<Aif|CF> \o/ i finnaly made it ;-), after 12 rounds of playing this game. this round has been very good for me, and i have to say tnx to 1UP for beening a GREATH ally to play in, but i would never have done this good alone i needed help so i have alot of ppl to say tnx to ;-)
<Aif|CF> Stals for beeing THE best GC u could ever ask for without him i dont think we would even be nr10, this man works for his ally 100% BUT makes it a 110% so that his galaxy can win. and \o/ we WON other round should we try and do it a 3 time ? ;-)
<Aif|CF> Therat for makeing attack´s u owned ealry in the round m8, but lch got u down :/
<Aif|CF> Synthetic_Sid well u allway´s try to do ur best at makeing ur ally top 1 (even tho i have to say : tnx for leting us take down 31:3)
<Aif|CF> TeK well m8 ur one hell of a player, but imo pipe down ur NOT that good ;-), and if u play active next round try not to get as many ppl pissed at u, like stals said: WTF he GOT 179 fleet´s inc and he SAYS ahhh u guys can handel it i go play WOW <--- next time stals wont cover ur ass ;-)
<Aif|CF> and to all the 1up scanners TNX u for a greath round ;-) (heres something columo liked me to say for him)
<A2> Well - as you're not only the #1 player, but also a member of the #1 galaxy I think we need to have a word with your GC
<Aif|CF> pa controlled my life in the last years and that i really love this community, and it is great to be part of the best ally.
<A2>
<A2> care to point him out?
<Aif|CF> ;-)
Aif|CF> ;-)
<Aif|CF> stals show ur self
<A2> so... Stals...
<blixxard> who is also in 2nd place.
<Stals|CF> no,i'm rank 21
<blixxard> shhh
<Aif|CF> hehe
<A2> what's aif really like then?
<A2> (go on, you can be honest, no-one listening)
<Aif|CF> ;-)
<Stals|CF> well, aif turn away
<Stals|CF> your a great guy to play with
<Stals|CF> and
<Aif|CF> Columbo> u spelt my nick wrong <--- sorry
<Stals|CF> my best pa mate
<Stals|CF> what more to say ? i love u man (pa-wise)
<A2> can't say fairer than that
<Stals|CF> I was to talk about aif right now right ?
<A2> yeah
<Stals|CF> well
<Stals|CF> he was supposed to be a scanner you know
<Stals|CF> with amps and such
<Stals|CF> we all see
<Stals|CF> how good a scanner can be
<A2> how did your round go then, as GC of the top gal?
<Stals|CF> we were very lucky I must admit
<Stals|CF> with the randoms
<Stals|CF> and
<Stals|CF> that the alliances started to block in a way that worked out well for our galaxy
<Stals|CF> 31:3 was far ahead from early start
<Stals|CF> but we kept on fighting
<Stals|CF> and at the end it worked out kinda well
<Aif|CF> nauti/elviz/coctuea/titos/buddah|away well u guys did one hell of a jobb it´s hard to keep a whole galaxy to follow 1up rules but NEXT time try not to fencesit, try to spot the "blocks" and work from that instead !!!!!
<Stals|CF> I was talking now get in line
<Stals|CF> I have to thank all the alliances thats been supporting our galaxy
<Stals|CF> so thank you 1up
<Stals|CF> thank you Newdawn

Doesn't everyone just love me
<NitinA|CF> Thank you WolfPack for *everything* I could ask for and more, when I needed it, or when it'd just be nice Thanks Elviz and Cocteau for attacking the gal mid-round making you a legal target after waiting so long (it was worth it in the end).

Some humps and bumps and heavy losses in the beginning but its funny how you learn from it and dont trie that again... And Thanks SiN, for some tasty targets, Keep em coming. Amnesia: thanks for greating me, the n00b with open arms.
<blixxard> if one of their HC's would like to pm me to get the 5 free credits
<A2> and now, over to blixxard to have a few words with the winning alliance in the game.
<blixxard>
<blixxard> well ofc, we all know who won.
<blixxard> 1up
<blixxard> hey guys
<[1up]Syn_Sid> hi
<mazzelaar>
<blixxard> Well, amazing round for your alliance. Just how did you do it?
<[1up]Syn_Sid> More luck than judgment in some ways
<[1up]Syn_Sid> FInishing #1 was never our expectation - or even our aim
<[1up]Syn_Sid> But when we got to #2, the current #1 alliance decided they'd hit the #3 alliance and settle for 2nd place
<[1up]Syn_Sid> so we pretty much had no option but to take #1 then
<blixxard> aha. so the winning tactic was luck?
<[1up]Syn_Sid> In more general terms, activity discipline and loyalty from our members is the key
<[1up]Syn_Sid> well - in general, no, luck isn't a winning tactic
<[1up]Syn_Sid> but we weren't aiming for #1 alliance spot
<blixxard> so i am just a bad player
<blixxard>
<[1up]Syn_Sid> so it was "Luck" or whatever, that made the circumstances such that there was no palatable alternative to us winning
<[1up]Syn_Sid> (for 1up, that is)
<blixxard> Could you briefly sum up what this round has been like for your alliance? the highs and lows of it?
<[1up]Syn_Sid> there's been a lot of small highs and lows, rather than one or two big ones
<[1up]Syn_Sid> for most of the round our aim was to stop any one alliance running away with a win
<[1up]Syn_Sid> and whenever we pegged an alliance back a bit (notably mistu and LCH) it was a high
<[1up]Syn_Sid> obviously getting to #1 on score was quite a big high
<[1up]Syn_Sid> as, indeed, was each place we gained up the ranks over alliances with farm ore members
<blixxard> hehe, yeah, towards the few final weeks it looked very certain
<[1up]Syn_Sid> by a week ago it was certain, yes
<[1up]Syn_Sid> i don't think we had any huge lows
<blixxard> hehe, so overall a great round?
<[1up]Syn_Sid> yeah - i'd say so
<[1up]Syn_Sid> it remained competetive until very near the end
<[1up]Syn_Sid> and for at least the first 2/3 of it, it wasn't clear who was going to win
<[1up]Syn_Sid> which has to be good for everyone
<blixxard> so there was no major turning point?
<blixxard> long drawn out war
<[1up]Syn_Sid> there were a few fairly major turning points
<blixxard> oh, tell
<[1up]Syn_Sid> initially LCH seemed to be running away the round
<[1up]Syn_Sid> they decided to try to hit all 1up planets at once
<[1up]Syn_Sid> and managed to hit most
<[1up]Syn_Sid> (though some were hit by fence-sitting LCH who told us in advance that they wouldn't land, or recalled 1 tick in)
<[1up]Syn_Sid> we then, with some other alliances, decided it was time to knock them back a bit
<[1up]Syn_Sid> for about 5 days LCH hit 1up
<[1up]Syn_Sid> while other alliances gained roids off LCH
<[1up]Syn_Sid> that was teh 1st major turning point
<[1up]Syn_Sid> as although they kept a score lead, they lost their roid lead - to Mistu
<blixxard> ahhh
<[1up]Syn_Sid> Next something siilar happened to Mistu - but they took more pain than LCH
<[1up]Syn_Sid> after they'd been hit for only a few days they ceased to be a candidate to win the round
<[1up]Syn_Sid> and not too long afterwards their Angels AG left them
<[1up]Syn_Sid> that then left LCH back in front by quite a margin
<[1up]Syn_Sid> there was then a bit of a two-sided war going on
<[1up]Syn_Sid> LCH and 1up were mainly hitting one another
<[1up]Syn_Sid> 1up were gining on roids though pretty steadily
<[1up]Syn_Sid> and in the meantime ND were also catching up fast on 1up/LCH
<[1up]Syn_Sid> the biggest turning point of the round then came
<[1up]Syn_Sid> the biggest turning point of the round then came
<[1up]Syn_Sid> when LCH swapped targets to ND
<[1up]Syn_Sid> and got their allies/support alliances to do the same
<[1up]Syn_Sid> it totally ruined any hope ND had of finishing #1
<[1up]Syn_Sid> but let 1up cruise past LCH fast
<blixxard> cool
<[1up]Syn_Sid> when they tried a couple of times later to swap targets back to 1up they failed
<[1up]Syn_Sid> typically they'd mass atatck 1up early in then ight
<[1up]Syn_Sid> run into a stone-wall
<[1up]Syn_Sid> then go attack ND instead
<[1up]Syn_Sid> instead of taking advantage of the defence fleets we still had heading out
<[1up]Syn_Sid> anyway, a few quick words of thanks are in order I think
<blixxard> oh oh
<blixxard> hang on
<blixxard> this is all scripted on autoque. 2 more quick questions then you can have your words
<blixxard> If you have one piece of advice for a new alliance what would it be? As probbly many people have noticed there are many new alliances now.
<[1up]Syn_Sid> advice for someone making a new alliance? or for someone looking to join one?
<blixxard> new alliances
<[1up]Syn_Sid> Start small would be the one piece of advice i'd give
<[1up]Syn_Sid> if i only had to give one
<[1up]Syn_Sid> If you need advice, then you shouldn't be trying to make a 100 member alliance right away
<[1up]Syn_Sid> If i were going to make a new alliance, and didn't have teh contacts etc I have, i'd be looking to start off with amybe 10-20 members
<[1up]Syn_Sid> preferably all in different galaxies
<[1up]Syn_Sid> enough to run one decent galaxy raid per night
<blixxard> ahh wise words indeed
<[1up]Syn_Sid> small and active is the way to go for a new alliance
<blixxard> great
<blixxard> So, what can we see from your alliance in the future?
<mazzelaar> incoming
<mazzelaar> ;p
<blixxard> rofl
<[1up]Syn_Sid> we'll be around next round
<[1up]Syn_Sid> haven't decided yet on membership count etc though
<blixxard> great, well best of luck in the future. over to you
<[PATeam]Phil^> sorry to interrupt sid but to those who are nicktalking - pls, grow up.
<mazzelaar> my go?
<[1up]Syn_Sid> go for it
<mazzelaar> I shall be very brief
<mazzelaar> Well done to Aif and the rest of 22:5. It goes to show you get out what you put in.
<mazzelaar> Congratulations to everyone on a great round of PA - I have to agree with biffy in that it has been the most entertaining by far and we can only hope following rounds follow in the same vain.
<mazzelaar> The members of 1up deserve a massive shout, thier activity and dedication have been amazing - well done all of you.
<mazzelaar> I have to say a big up to Zhil - without those 8 def calls you covered we would've been screwed.
<mazzelaar> and finally:
<mazzelaar> <3 [ND]The_Fish
<mazzelaar> thats all from me
<[1up]Syn_Sid> Without repeating the ones Mazz already covered,
[1up]Syn_Sid> Without repeating the ones Mazz already covered, there's a few more thanks to add
<[1up]Syn_Sid> Thanks to most of our enemies for fighting the majority of the round in a civilised manner
<[1up]Syn_Sid> I think this round's been a lot "cleaner" than many
<[1up]Syn_Sid> Thanks to our friends for their cooperation and assistance
<[1up]Syn_Sid> (Some alliances have been in both the firends and the enemies columns at various stages in the round)
<[1up]Syn_Sid> Thanks to 1up's Military Team for going without sleep doing a largely thankless job
<[1up]Syn_Sid> TeK wanted a mention : TeK you're a twat
<mazzelaar> seconded
<[1up]Syn_Sid> And thanks to all fence-sitting enemies - without your spinelessness, none of this would be possible.
<mazzelaar> \o/
<[1up]Syn_Sid> That's me done
<mazzelaar> happy christmas everyone
<blixxard> okey
<blixxard> thanks for the advice sid.
<blixxard> right well
