EoRC Round 38: 24/09/10

<Appocomaster> Welcome to the Round 38 (Tick of Destiny) End of Round ceremony!
<Appocomaster> oops
<Appocomaster> I always forget someone :p
<Appocomaster> It's nice to see lots of people here
<Appocomaster> ok
<Appocomaster> let's start the ball rolling
<Appocomaster> now, I've helpfully run the end of round script
<Appocomaster> so we can see the top 3 planets are MythX, Phant and ManiacMagic
<Appocomaster> :)
<Appocomaster> unfortunately
<Appocomaster> I don't know if Maniac is actually around
<Appocomaster> despite the fact there's two of him!
<Appocomaster> oh
<Appocomaster> apparently MM is coming soon
<Appocomaster> :)
<Appocomaster> ok
<Appocomaster> so, we'll start with MythX
<Appocomaster> congratulations MythX
<Appocomaster> #1!
<[ND]Mythx> Thanks :D
<Appocomaster> I think it's the first time you've been in one of these?
<[ND]Mythx> Yeah, normally asleep
<Appocomaster> but iirc you've never finished top 3 :)
<Appocomaster> (maybe a galaxy win or two?)
<[ND]Mythx> Yeah, a couple of rounds ago when I came back to PA I was winning around the middle of the round for awhile, but never finished top3 planet/top gal before
<Appocomaster> :)
<Appocomaster> well, congratulations
<[ND]Mythx> Thank you :)
<Appocomaster> so, quite a big win
<Appocomaster> what would you say the key factor in winning was?
<[ND]Mythx> I think for me being Cath helped a lot, having hulls1 and hulls3 made for effective fakes, and having a really good teamup partner in DemonatrX who managed to get ahold of CO pods early on helped a lot with that faking too
<Appocomaster> timezone? alliances (?)? galaxy? etc?
<Appocomaster> ah :)
<Appocomaster> none of those :p
<[ND]Mythx> yeah the timezone definitely helps, and ND always does a good job with politics, being a Cath your heavily at the mercy of your alliance I think
<Appocomaster> yes
<Appocomaster> interesting last week or two?
<[ND]Mythx> Yeah things got a bit interesting, lost about 2,500 roids in 4 ticks to all of CT and others when war broke
<[ND]Mythx> but up to that point it was just a roid race, so that made it a meaningful round from that point on
<[ND]Mythx> just if I might, would like to thank a couple of people
<Appocomaster> did you have any friendly banter within ND, or with NFI, about the race for the top?
<Appocomaster> sure
<[ND]Mythx> Firstly demonatrx for being a great attack partner, bp and friend
<[ND]Mythx> ND for getting behind me and setting the goal of #1 planet when we all decided to stick with our friends NFI for the rest of the round and not go for #1 ally
<[ND]Mythx> and to Asc (and friends) for all they did to secure the win planet in the last week, couldn't have done it without them taking roids out of phant
<[KENNY]Phant> =/
<Appocomaster> :o
<Appocomaster> Phant: want to comment? :p
<[KENNY]Phant> rather not :P
<[ND]Mythx> Hey, CT took roids out of me :p
<Appocomaster> Phant: from your point of view, how did the race for #1 go?
<Appocomaster> also, do you think that cath was the best race for attacking? you both being cath may have played a role in the #1 #2 ?
<[KENNY]Phant> I thought I had it on lockdown. Until I opened my big mouth and Asc shut it for me
<Appocomaster> oh dear
<Appocomaster> not some pre-round-end bragging?
<Appocomaster> that's always a fatal mistake :(
<[KENNY]Phant> oh yes
<[KENNY]Phant> live and learn
<Appocomaster> your first time up here too, iirc?
<[KENNY]Phant> I was in top gal like 30 rounds ago
<Appocomaster> oh
<[KENNY]Phant> but other than that yes
<Appocomaster> I don't remeber that ;)
<[KENNY]Phant> diff nick :)
<Appocomaster> even worse!
<Appocomaster> so, key point sin the round?
<[KENNY]Phant> I was told all round that cath were horrible and would never win. so grats to Mythx and me for proving them wrong
<Appocomaster> :)
<[ND]Mythx> Yeah I heard that a fair bit too
<[ND]Mythx> I didn't think CO would work though with not many people attacking with it, so nicely done on Phant's part to make that work
<Appocomaster> was defence hard?
<[KENNY]Phant> not for me. I was only CO in NFI for a long time
<[KENNY]Phant> so Alli carried me in def
<Appocomaster> ah. I meant getting defence for incoming :p
<[KENNY]Phant> not really
<Appocomaster> how about you, Mythx? similar tactic?
<[KENNY]Phant> Sun_Tzu and Patrikc DC very nice for me while i slept
<[ND]Mythx> The big waves I got we let land because they wern't who we were worried about giving score to, so towards the end it wasn't a problem
<[ND]Mythx> but in the early stages ally came through for me with a lot of def
<Appocomaster> great
<Appocomaster> any general favourite parts of the round?
<[ND]Mythx> I'm glad I JGPed before landing my mantis in defense, almost went to bed but that would have been the round if I had landed that
<[ND]Mythx> that FC :/
<Appocomaster> MM is still 5 minutes away. his time keeping is worse than mine
<Appocomaster> so we might do galaxy then come back to him briefly
<Appocomaster> any final comments?
<[KENNY]Phant> from who?
<[ND]Mythx> Congrats to NFI on winning alliance, locked it up really early and played well throughout
<Appocomaster> both of you
<[KENNY]Phant> Yea. Thanks to Great/Nolez/Sun_Tzu for attacking partners
<[KENNY]Phant> Thanks to Patrikc for DCing
<[KENNY]Phant> and Kenny for being awesome
<[KENNY]Phant> and thanks CT for trying to get me back to #1
<Appocomaster> ok
<Appocomaster> thanks
<Appocomaster> quicky
<Appocomaster> WELCOME BACK MM
<Appocomaster> MM the thief!
<Appocomaster> (say it in here)
<Appocomaster> oh

<[ND]ManiacMagic> I would also
<[ND]ManiacMagic> love to thank my great support group, gangster aries and speedy-j
<Appocomaster> (<3 catwoman)
<[ND]ManiacMagic> being top 100 was my goal and they helped me dc like no other
<[ND]ManiacMagic> and i recovered from huge losses to top 3
<[ND]ManiacMagic> also
<[ND]ManiacMagic> CBA much love, you always make it worth playing in your gal
<[ND]ManiacMagic> CBA Sun_Tzu and ANA3d have beent he best support
<Appocomaster> any key moments of the round?
<[ND]ManiacMagic> no matter what until the end, it wouldnt have been done without those three
<[ND]ManiacMagic> actually yes
<[ND]ManiacMagic> Non calcing
<[ND]ManiacMagic> people not calcing attacks vs me ... had saved me vs 3 attacks landing on me
<[ND]ManiacMagic> and then ASC
<[ND]ManiacMagic> ASC was attacked twice by the same APP guy deffending me INCLUDING the last one to give me the score jump
<[ND]ManiacMagic> i was about to recall then i asked asc if they had an inc scan
<[ND]ManiacMagic> Also lynx and shibby omg you guys are great deffers
<[ND]ManiacMagic> this round was not about me getting top 3
<[ND]ManiacMagic> i want to thank all of those who helped me be the best DC i can
<[ND]ManiacMagic> yall dont realize how much it means that i can sit up here at EOR and shout out to all of you

<Fiery> Well done, MM :/
<Appocomaster> !! :D
<[ND]ManiacMagic> lol
<Appocomaster> thanks
<Appocomaster> ok
<Appocomaster> sorry for that slight overruning, but I think it was worth waiting for MM
<[CT][13-3]oil> time for the big hitters.
<[CT][13-3]oil> the big boys.
<[CT][13-3]oil> the real deal.
<Appocomaster> and oil
<[CT][13-3]oil> :|
<Appocomaster> now
<Appocomaster> 13-3 won
<Appocomaster> top #1 galaxy
<[CT][13-3]Spral> thats right
<Appocomaster> reasonably close
<Appocomaster> so, congrats guys!
<[CT][13-3]Spral> oil is a born leader
<[CT][13-3]Spral> he took charge early on and lead us to victory
<[CT-13-3]Nazqil> sprally...
<[CT][13-3]oil> agree, keep going i'll talk in a minute
<[CT][13-3]Spral> also, he is very handsome
<[ASC][13-3]adju> Hes a great forum poster as u all know
<[CT-13-3]Nazqil> norton is missing :) I think he needs +v
<[CT][13-3]oil> agreed.
<[CT][13-3]Spral> and masculine
<Norton> thx
<[CT][13-3]oil> yup
<Appocomaster> masculine: No such nick/channel
<[CT][13-3]oil> if i could just say one thing actually?
<[CT][13-3]oil> on a serious note...
<Norton> i was lucky to have n30 fighting on my side. eventhough he crashed (again) he gave me the courage to push forward. And ofc carDi who for once not backstapped my gal but f*cked asc over.
<Norton> i blame universe i am voiced here ... 13 3 was best of the wurse gals... we failed at all inc i seen around except for last day mebe when atleast some got covered
<Norton> so shame on you all:P
<Appocomaster> oh god
<Appocomaster> oil: did you train them all to troll for you
<[KENNY]13-3Tez> o/
<[CT][13-3]Imp> nah, we won since we kept attacking
<Appocomaster> Norton: you feel the other galaxies were better?
<[CT][13-3]Imp> we sucked at def maybe but just didn't gave up
<Appocomaster> you out roided?
<Appocomaster> Kevin Keegan style
<[ASC][13-3]adju> We had a good start until ct pissed everyone off
<Norton> gals i been in in past covered far better
<[CT][13-3]oil> as far as i know sprally is the first person to play a round as an openly homosexual man. not something that necessarily means a lot game wise. (other than a noticeable rise in inc on his planet - seriously) but i think in terms of what he's done for the community is something seriously worthy of merit.
<[KENNY]13-3Tez> the gap would have been bigger if we had someactive planets in our gal ^^
<Norton> we got of easy for 400 ticks at a time or so
<Appocomaster> you came through on the last day
<[CT-13-3]Nazqil> yeah
<Appocomaster> were you worried?
<[CT-13-3]Nazqil> little bit I could say
<Appocomaster> any alliance help? ;)
<[CT-13-3]Nazqil> yes indeed
<[CT][13-3]oil> yeah
<Appocomaster> you were saying earlier that ct roiding 1:8 may have helped
<[CT][13-3]oil> huge
<[CT-13-3]Nazqil> thanks to CT who helped us alot
<[CT][13-3]oil> ct are a brick. we're recruiting btw
<[CT-13-3]Nazqil> and nfi for accepting that the gal was exempt from alliance politics
<[CT][13-3]Spral> YEA! CT is amazing
<[CT][13-3]Imp> also thanks to ascendancy for getting adjuhh so much xp
<[ASC][13-3]adju> Yeah asc was awesome, they supported us all the way :D
<[CT][13-3]Imp> couldn't have done it without you guys!
<Appocomaster> Nazqil: how did you swing that "NAP" ?
<[CT][13-3]Spral> as the only super champion in the history of PA with 3 galaxy wins in a row.. i recommend CT!
<Appocomaster> so how did alliance politics affect you?
<[CT-13-3]Nazqil> it was set up from alliance I suppose
<[ASC][13-3]adju> And ofc fc on 8.2 helped
<[CT][13-3]Spral> PS. i beat you all at going random
<Appocomaster> obviously yuou're a ct/asc galaxy
<[CT][13-3]oil> yeah politics helped a lot
<Appocomaster> who was the original buddy pack?
<[KENNY]13-3Tez> NFI
<Norton> APPRIME
<[KENNY]13-3Tez> the big man was NFI
<Norton> secind app
<Norton> :P
<[KENNY]13-3Tez> ^^
<[CT-13-3]Nazqil> I really like to thank asc for trying to ruin my round :)
<Norton> the ct helped us though
<[CT][13-3]oil> can i just say it's really inspiring being able to get up here infront of you all and just let our thoughts, our ideas and philosophies out like this.....
<[ASC][13-3]adju> The ct nubs were the bp
<Appocomaster> so 1.8 - who were they?
<[CT][13-3]oil> ascendancy are a gay alliance.
<Norton> hehehe
<[CT][13-3]oil> they are gay and like men.
<[ASC][13-3]adju> But had some luck with decent players exiling in
<[ASC][13-3]adju> Stfu oil
<[CT-13-3]Nazqil> 1.8 were our rivals
<[CT][13-3]oil> i'm just saying it's something we spent a lot of time thinking about
<[CT-13-3]Nazqil> then they disappeared :P
<Appocomaster> oil: hands on keyboard
<[CT][13-3]oil> yeah thanks ND for telling asc you were going to hit us on the last night or w/e
<Appocomaster> "disappeard" - like, they were still around yesterday :p
<[KENNY]13-3Tez> without the good exiles we would have been doomed
<[ASC][13-3]adju> Cardi and friends took down 1.8 more than we got hit
<[CT][13-3]Imp> well, we had some awesome late signups too
<[ASC][13-3]adju> They did an awesome job, great ppl there, but app/nfi and more was abit much incs there
<[CT-13-3]Nazqil> could say that last 24 ticks lead us to victory
<Norton> the xp lands on nd helped us a lot too
<Appocomaster> what alliance were 1.8?
<[CT][13-3]Spral> this was supposed to be our gal pic, but we're not able to change it
<[ASC][13-3]adju> Asc
<[CT][13-3]Spral> http://demonimage.blueaspect.com/ar...Uj75uePhf1Vov22
<[CT][13-3]oil> there was another one
<[CT][13-3]Spral> oil did mouth to mouth on naz and revived him luckily
<[CT-13-3]Nazqil> last few days were 13:3 vs 1:8
<[CT-13-3]Nazqil> could say that it was ct vs asc
<[ASC][13-3]adju> So i probably should have suicided for the greater good of asc galwin, soz guys
<[CT-13-3]Nazqil> besides appoco, only 1 asc planet in 13:3
<[CT-13-3]Nazqil> we are ct/nfdi based
<Appocomaster> why is Nazqil in the pool?
<Appocomaster> sigh
<[CT][13-3]Spral> because he had to much to drink
<Norton> hehe
<[CT-13-3]Nazqil> well
<Appocomaster> silly!
<Appocomaster> ok
<Appocomaster> key moments in the round?
<[KENNY]13-3Tez> check sandmans
<[CT][13-3]Spral> when naz came back :)
<Appocomaster> also where is Mano? mano is cool!
<[CT][13-3]Spral> and adjuhh stood by our side
<Appocomaster> where did Naz go??
<[CT][13-3]oil> there were a lot of bonding moments
<[CT][13-3]oil> where we really came otgether
<[CT]Nazqil> got real life issues
<Norton> naz getting his ass fc ed and ct not covering?
<Appocomaster> ok
<[CT][13-3]oil> talking about when we were young
<[KENNY]13-3Tez> we have mor then 2 planets with a total of more then 500 idle ticks this round ^^
<[CT][13-3]oil> talking about other dudes
<[ASC][13-3]adju> Ct getting raped took our galdown
<[CT][13-3]oil> just kind of finding out new ways of thinking about other dudes
<Appocomaster> oil, thin line
<[CT][13-3]oil> and kinda bonding over it
<[ASC][13-3]adju> And then with some luck we had a new shot
<[CT]Nazqil> our late sign ups did great job :)
<Norton> yeah dude crashing his bs in 1 8 helped a little too
<Appocomaster> any people you want to thank in particular?
<[ASC][13-3]adju> Ascendany!
<Norton> nah did it all myselve
<[CT][13-3]oil> yeah thanks asc
<Norton> hardly got def

<[CT]Nazqil> I agree
<Appocomaster> everyone knows oil is an idiot :p
<[CT][13-3]oil> we've been through a lot
<[CT][13-3]oil> and sometimes it's been tough
<[CT][13-3]Spral> thank you Appocomaster for keeping oil on a leash
<[CT][13-3]oil> but in the end
<[CT][13-3]oil> it's just a game
<[CT]Nazqil> no :P
<[CT][13-3]Spral> we were afraid he would embarrass us in eorc
<[CT][13-3]oil> poetry is for real..
<[ASC][13-3]adju> And ofc congrats to nd winning #1 planet
<[ASC][13-3]adju> And to the nfi's

<Appocomaster> (sorry oil!)
<Appocomaster> now, finally
<Appocomaster> NFI
<Appocomaster> first round as a new alliance
<Appocomaster> winning
<Sun_Tzu> ye drunk, ye drunk, ye silly old fool...
<Appocomaster> oh dear
<Appocomaster> Sun_Tzu is drunk?
<Sun_Tzu> nah
<[KENNY]Kenny> Yeah, he shouldn't do EORC ;)
<Appocomaster> less sensible stats :p
<[KENNY]Kenny> Expect a bit of nicktalking btw
<[KENNY]Kenny> For some reason I'm not the most popular guy in the game atm
<Sun_Tzu> nicktalking is like so cool and stuff
<[KENNY]Kenny> Once I've worked out why I'll let you know.
<Appocomaster> Ali wants in on this
<KennyFails> kk?
<[KENNY]Kenny> Does he?
<Appocomaster> yes
<Sun_Tzu> yes
<[KENNY]Kenny> What alliance was he HC'ing? :|
<Appocomaster> lol
<[KENNY]Kenny> oh crap
<Appocomaster> ok
<[KENNY]Kenny> ours
<[KENNY]Kenny> ok go on then
<Appocomaster> so, congrats :p
<Sun_Tzu> thanks!
<Appocomaster> hi too, Ali
<Appocomaster> so, it was quite a political round
<Appocomaster> I happily remember the mistu / phraktos / fang days personally :p
<[NotKenny]Ali> If Tzu was sober we wouldn't have won.. so we have to thank alcohol first for our win
<[KENNY]Kenny> That's err.. one way of putting it.
<[NotKenny]Ali> Sorry I'm on a phone so typing slow
<[KENNY]Kenny> oh god.
<Appocomaster> so, the key point is the napping
<[KENNY]Kenny> Yeah it's certainly been an interesting round for us
<Sun_Tzu> well, we took the lead at PT38, so in order to hold on to it we had to play politics ;/
<Appocomaster> and I don't mean what your dcs were deprived of
<Sun_Tzu> something I hadn't originally intended tbh
<Appocomaster> Sun_Tzu: did you take the lead in the politics?
<[KENNY]Kenny> Nothing about this round is how we originally intended it when setting things up
<[KENNY]Kenny> kafka :(
<Sun_Tzu> err, I'd say we basically just had a very strong alliance strategy and high activity level at the start which put us in front
<[KENNY]Kenny> Other alliances weren't as strong as we'd have hoped, there was little to no competition in terms of activity
<Sun_Tzu> and because we were in front, the choice was either to accept we'd get mass incs, or start making sure such incs didn't come our way, at least not hard enough to take us out
<[KENNY]Kenny> idd
<Appocomaster> Kenny: when did you realise this?
<[KENNY]Kenny> well
<[KENNY]Kenny> as soon as we got to first, killed app and asc, and were left twiddling our thumbs :|
<[KENNY]Kenny> heh, in all seriousness - when things kicked off between app and NFI
<Sun_Tzu> technically, we didn't kill asc, we started with that, then Asc organized 1 night of incs on ND, and JBG pm'd DZ saying "NAP us or we'll do that again", and they ran for a NAP
<[KENNY]Kenny> a lot of the success we had came from (like tzu said) superior activity and race setup
<Sun_Tzu> so that kind of busted our intention of being really allies with ND and taking down Asc together
<[KENNY]Kenny> Yeah, that was NewDawn's "involvement" for the round
<Appocomaster> which races did you go for?
<[KENNY]Kenny> anything that wasn't cath for the most part
<Appocomaster> why?
<[KENNY]Kenny> and fr/de based on everything else
<[KENNY]Kenny> well
<Appocomaster> cath came #1 and #2 :p
<Sun_Tzu> heavily ETD, mainly for ghost/wid
<[NotKenny]Ali> After our agreement to nap nd till tick 790 and we were able to focus on apprime and then build value mid round the end was easier with our value lead.. our avg score was in the t40 so everyone but penny did a great job
<Appocomaster> (I was etd. but I can confirm I wasn't a secret NFI planet)
<[KENNY]Kenny> tbh it started because we were only going to be a small 40-man tag
<[KENNY]Kenny> and we didn't want any races that didn't kill/cause damage
<Sun_Tzu> there's always one or two big flagshipped caths high up
<Sun_Tzu> doesn't mean the race is actually any good
<[KENNY]Kenny> indeed
<Appocomaster> so you decided your alliances races?
<[NotKenny]Ali> Ers
<[KENNY]Kenny> tzu, razer and lordn did most of the race strat discussions
<Sun_Tzu> yarr
<[NotKenny]Ali> Etd was great for the team but not solo
<Sun_Tzu> I landed some stuff solo as etd actually
<Sun_Tzu> I think
<[KENNY]Kenny> early round you did
<Sun_Tzu> yeah
<[KENNY]Kenny> nothing late round etcc
<[KENNY]Kenny> -c
<Sun_Tzu> well nobody lands solo late round ;/

<[KENNY]Kenny> heh, tell Reese that :p
<Sun_Tzu> heh, yeah well, ok
<[KENNY]Kenny> yeah, jeezo
<[KENNY]Kenny> we spent about £400 between everyon
<Sun_Tzu> poor Berten :(
<[KENNY]Kenny> +e
<Appocomaster> ok
<[KENNY]Kenny> credits for planets, skype talktime and sms creds
<Appocomaster> any special thanks?
<[KENNY]Kenny> expensive stuff!
<[KENNY]Kenny> Yes
<[KENNY]Kenny> CT
<Sun_Tzu> special thanks to Appoco for removing me from vacmode!
<Appocomaster> sigh
<[NotKenny]Ali> And kenny...........
<Appocomaster> !
<[KENNY]Kenny> I can't thank Conspiracy enough for their amazing support this round
<[KENNY]Kenny> I've HC'd a few times now, never in a winning alliance though
<[NotKenny]Ali> Ahem
<Sun_Tzu> because I actually put myself there so as to prevent myself from being distracted, because I had 1 deadline/day this last week
<[KENNY]Kenny> but their support was amazing
<[KENNY]Kenny> they stuck by their nap despite being pummeled for it
<[KENNY]Kenny> People can take a lead out of CT's books when it comes to sticking to naps!
<Sun_Tzu> yeah, respect to CT, they did a respectable job
<Appocomaster> sorry Sun_Tzu :p
<[KENNY]Kenny> What vacmode thing?
<Sun_Tzu> Appocomaster; it's ok, I managed to get most of it done, although almost went over on my last deadline this morning :(
<Appocomaster> sorry :(
<Appocomaster> I feel a little guilty
<Appocomaster> Kenny: comments on next round?
<Appocomaster> are you playing next round>
<[KENNY]Kenny> Well
<Sun_Tzu> oh, and one more thing about this round and politics, if I may
<Appocomaster> sure
<[KENNY]Kenny> Go on, tzu¨
<Sun_Tzu> While I don't have any issue with most of ND, and I still very much love Amon, what caused us to drop the NAP with ND ultimately was the actions of DZ
<[KENNY]Kenny> He actually pm'd to say 'congrats' tonight, which was nice
<Appocomaster> :)
<Sun_Tzu> Most of ND doesn't even know what DZ does half the time, so I won't hold it against them
<[KENNY]Kenny> But yeah, it was tensions between dz and I that caused the nap to end
<[KENNY]Kenny> tbh
<[KENNY]Kenny> I don't regret it
<Sun_Tzu> but as Amon stated earlier this round, he couldn't control DZ
<Sun_Tzu> and DZ had been shopping around for people to hit us with
<[KENNY]Kenny> there was an agreed 16-hour cooloff period for the nap
<[KENNY]Kenny> which I gave them
<Appocomaster> :)
<[KENNY]Kenny> So mehh
<[KENNY]Kenny> To be honest
<[KENNY]Kenny> above all else
<[KENNY]Kenny> the round had died
<Sun_Tzu> At that point, from my perspective, you're no longer my friend and I'll take action to prevent you from harming my alliance
<Sun_Tzu> that's all.
<[KENNY]Kenny> it was pretty boring towards the end
<[KENNY]Kenny> But it's ok
<Appocomaster> ok
<Appocomaster> next round?
<[KENNY]Kenny> I'm applying to NewDawn.
<[KENNY]Kenny> But seriously, this is the 2nd time I've started an alliance and cost ND a roundwin
<[KENNY]Kenny> so I feel pretty good about that
<[KENNY]Kenny> all I can say is, NewDawn win what we let them win
<Appocomaster> sure
<[KENNY]Kenny> which is why NFI is going to hand them the allcomp win tonight
<[ND]Kenny> NEWS TEAM
<[ND]Kenny> ASSEMBLE!
