EoRC Round 43: 07/10/11

<Appocomaster> Welcome, Ladies and Gentlemen, to the Round 43 End of Round Ceremony (EoRC)
<Appocomaster> we have had another interesting round
<Appocomaster> a new alliance has won
<Appocomaster> just a reminder - round44@planetarion.com closers tonight
<Appocomaster> *closes
<Appocomaster> if you want to submit a round name, do so during this :)
<Appocomaster> Also, a cluster-based havoc round starts tomorrow
<Appocomaster> something slightly different
<Appocomaster> ok
<Appocomaster> We'll start with the winning planets for this round
<Appocomaster> All from 5:1, which is unusual
<Appocomaster> in first place, we have Shaz of NewDawn, 5:1:7
<Appocomaster> in second place, arc of Conspiracy, 5:1:1
<Appocomaster> and in third place, Dav of ToF, 5:1:4
-!- mode/#planetarion [+v [ND]Shaz[5-1]] by Appocomaster
-!- mode/#planetarion [+v [ToF]Dav[5-1]] by Appocomaster
<Appocomaster> anyone seen arc?
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> timpayne
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> arc is sleeping
<Appocomaster> I was told it as arc /o\
<Appocomaster> ok
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> dav will speak for arc or something
-!- mode/#planetarion [+v timpayne] by Appocomaster
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> yeah
<Appocomaster> oh
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> a few words to say for arc etc
<Appocomaster> why did I voice timpayne then?
<timpayne> HELLO
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> he's recovering from his DCing last nite old arc ;)
* Appocomaster nudges Shaz
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> no idea
<Appocomaster> why did you say his name?!?
-!- mode/#planetarion [-v timpayne] by Appocomaster
<Appocomaster> ok
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> it's just timpayne
<Appocomaster> moving on!
<Appocomaster> congratulations, Shaz
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> thanks
<Appocomaster> you have joined the elite group of winners of Planetarion
<Appocomaster> and the even more elite group of women who've won Planetarion
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> and well deserved imo ;)
<Appocomaster> (the only others we could come up with are Reese and JBG)
<Appocomaster> so, how does it feel to finally sit at the top of the Planetarion tree?
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> been rounds since i missed the top always
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> especially apprime ppl always after me during most rounds
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> oracle/asc ppl helped
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> some of them wanted to see me up there
<Appocomaster> so was it more of a team effort?
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> not really
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> they send some pl def when things got hard 1 night
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> when ND was hit by multiple allies
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> of course their pinky and brain project helped too
<Appocomaster> what was that?
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> which will be explained by dav later
<Appocomaster> ok
<Appocomaster> :)
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> :)
<Appocomaster> was your alliance or galaxy more important in you being first?
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> anyway
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> hmm
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> both i guess
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> i've not bp for long time
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> always random
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> this rnd i bp ppl from ministry/asc
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> some ppl i played before for many rounds
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> mikee, arc, dav, alki
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> so galaxy was important for me
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> so was ally
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> since we were going for the win
<Appocomaster> the fact that all your buddy pack came in the top 3 ... that must be a first
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> if alki survived the round
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> he would be 4th i'm sure
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> lies, alki would have crashed remember
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> ya
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> thus 4th
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> we were all watching over him ;p
* Appocomaster nods
<Appocomaster> so, key people to thank>
<Appocomaster> ?
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> ya
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> ND of course goes first
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> for their def
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> during the launch and recalls from app, ult, xvx tgv etc
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> slevin and judge helped to dc together
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> we had to recall and resend def
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> dragonkin and drac were good dcs as well to help
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> digitalzero's politics helped too
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> special thanks to mick, new member in nd
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> and orcale people
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> including
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> TIMPAYNE
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> pt
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> casa
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> hugin
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> gzambo
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> hosie
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> hideo
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> and galaxy people who attacked with me together
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> arc, dav, sleepless and alki
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> smasher for organising in gal def well to keep things in line
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> and mikee for being mikee
<Appocomaster> I think that's the most people thanked in an eorc :p
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> great support from mario/monrue and tulling
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> think that's about it :)
<Appocomaster> well, congratulations
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> well its an eorc for records, so shaz ofc set another with the thanks :p
<Appocomaster> :p
<Appocomaster> apparently, in round 32 a buddy pack came top 3
<Appocomaster> so, Dav, if you'd like to cover off #2 and #3 for us please :)
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> sure
<Appocomaster> congratulations to both yourself and arc
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> thank you, was a fun round
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> i guess i will give arc the glory first
<Appocomaster> what was his high point, from your point of view?
<Appocomaster> obv coming second :p
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> well just how everyone gal / ally pulled as a team
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> especially last nite, arc saw mass incs, and CT - credit to them along with gal covered every wave
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> that certainly ensured he stayed 2nd
<Appocomaster> was it a close run thing?
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> so on arcs behalf he'd like to that CT
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> yeah i think 2nd and 3rd went down to the wire again
<Appocomaster> and fourth
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> Drac and whoops getting escorted to roids, we thought they'd clinched it, but turns out good team work prevailed in our favour
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> so comiserations to them, but good effort
<Appocomaster> Drac was third for a lot of the round
<Appocomaster> so I am sure he's a bit sad :(
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> yeah, but now he's 4th wen it matters ;)
<Appocomaster> lol
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> so we wont dwell on it
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> im sure he has some vodka on him now or summit
<Appocomaster> what was the big turning point?
<Appocomaster> was there one?
<Appocomaster> we'll get onto the galaxy next
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> arc would be higher if there are other DCs in ct
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> other than arc and sleepless
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> well tonight was a turning point
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> it is
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> smasher made the decision to defend
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> instead of attack
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> defend arc i mean
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> yeah
<Appocomaster> when was this?
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> then crashes from xvx came in
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> this was last night, when xvx came for arc
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> gal and CT pulled together to secure arcs t3 spot
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> so congrats to them on behalf of arc :)
<Appocomaster> and finally, your #3 place?
<Appocomaster> :P
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> he didnt leave me a list of names so appologies for not individual mentions
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> Yeah, was a close run thing as mentioned above
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> but i couldnt have done it without the help of the mighty ToF !
<Appocomaster> are you the highest ranking ToF planet?
<Appocomaster> did you expect to be so high?
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> big thanks to all the members there, especially Kirlack, MyKool, Reincarnate, fellah, Striker and ofcoure Zeyi on the night watch
<Appocomaster> was it ToF, the galaxy, or both?
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> it was both tbh, mainly ToF, but the gal would support anything that they couldnt cover
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> as small core member base
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> But they did me proud, especially when App, Newdawn and a few HR tired their hand the other day
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> covering 7 of the 8 waves contributed massively to my rank 3
<Appocomaster> they're not in the top 10 (slipped 2 places)
<Appocomaster> that may be the first time someone not in the top 10 alliances came in the top 3
<Appocomaster> did ToF have such a small memberbase all round?
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> I think the most we had was 34 ?
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> so yes
<Appocomaster> ok
<Appocomaster> any final thanks?
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> 29 for the majority
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> Yes
<Appocomaster> I'm sure they're proud
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> a thanks to oracle / asc
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> the pinky and the brain project
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> which was "bringing the fun" back by constantly launching fake attack missions at CBA but app spoiled it by roiding him before they could lol ;)
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> A big thanks to ToF
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> and 5.1 as a whole
<Appocomaster> well, congratulations
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> Tulling / killeah and even Yoshika when he was there and Mikee, Monroe and smasher
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> so thanks :)
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> congratulations to shaz also
<Appocomaster> as I understand it, you only have a couple of people (not you) representing your galaxy?
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> well deserved #1
<[ToF]Dav[5-1]> correct
<Appocomaster> ok
<Appocomaster> well, thakns to the three of you
<Appocomaster> have a nice rest :)
<[ND]Shaz[5-1]> thanks
<Appocomaster> well deserved

<Appocomaster> so, 5-1, top galaxy this round
<Appocomaster> with the top 3 planets
<Appocomaster> congratulations
<Appocomaster> :)
<killeah[5-1]> thx :)
<Appocomaster> the two of you are representing the galaxy, I understand?
<killeah[5-1]> correct, so many of us on the line already :D
<Appocomaster> would you like to list the galayx members?
<Appocomaster> buddy pack first
<Appocomaster> I think it's : Monroe, Tulling, Smasher, Yoshika, Mikee, arc, marioes, killeah, shaz, Dav, Sleepless ?
<killeah[5-1]> shaz, mikee, dav, alki (R.I.P), arc, killeah, smasher, sleepless, tulling, yoshika, mario, monroe
<killeah[5-1]> and
<killeah[5-1]> we had some in and outs lol
<killeah[5-1]> think those covers it for the active ones atleast
<Appocomaster> who was the core of the galaxy/
<Appocomaster> everyone?
<killeah[5-1]> well, the bp
<killeah[5-1]> myself at tick 50, and tulling/smahser/sleepless from around tick 300
<killeah[5-1]> yoshika 550 ish
<Appocomaster> lcuky exils?
<killeah[5-1]> not bad ones tbh
<killeah[5-1]> especially looking at races
<killeah[5-1]> etd and xan
<killeah[5-1]> perfect match for atts and def
<Appocomaster> mainly Xan
<killeah[5-1]> only mario as late exile as zik
<Appocomaster> why so many Xan?
<Appocomaster> were the whole buddy pack xan?
<killeah[5-1]> specs and broads made it a nightmare to hit us with CR/BS
<killeah[5-1]> no they were a mix also
<killeah[5-1]> etd/xan
<killeah[5-1]> but yea, as a side effect of uni being xan for the most part
<killeah[5-1]> we had a fair amount of those
<Appocomaster> key moments for the galaxy?
<Neo> NEW Article - Round 43 Rankings - http://www.planetarion.com/news/new...und-43-rankings
<Appocomaster> you had a fair mix of alliances?
<Appocomaster> Thank you, Neo
<killeah[5-1]> to start from the back
<killeah[5-1]> last nights awesome coverage of arc
<killeah[5-1]> getting in yoshika, which turned out to be a roid machine
<killeah[5-1]> suprinsingly
<killeah[5-1]> typo..
<killeah[5-1]> also
<killeah[5-1]> the ever will to give out intel
<killeah[5-1]> from everyone, about attacks on gal
<killeah[5-1]> we were a 6 ally spread
<Appocomaster> did you fence to the top?
<killeah[5-1]> and we always knew who hit and when
<killeah[5-1]> far from it, to bring a few boring stats
<killeah[5-1]> Total Round Roids: 31,628 Ticks Roiding: 250
<killeah[5-1]> so yea we lost 13k roids all in all
<killeah[5-1]> but a insane activity regarding attacks at all hours kept it even
<killeah[5-1]> in the end
<killeah[5-1]> we made it exciting ourselves
<killeah[5-1]> with alkis untimely exit
<Appocomaster> any worries?
<killeah[5-1]> not that many
<Appocomaster> any final thanks? :)
<killeah[5-1]> our late start smasher, kinda kept stuff in check all the time
<killeah[5-1]> right a few
<Appocomaster> Smasher does have a reputation for organisation :)
<killeah[5-1]> mikee and smasher, for doing the DC at all possible horrible hours
<killeah[5-1]> mikke at start of round smasher at mid and end
<killeah[5-1]> #scans for providing help whenever needed
<killeah[5-1]> freinds of freinds who seemed to have an interest in keeping us up there, I don´t know your names , you know who you are tho ;)
<Appocomaster> any final remarks?
<killeah[5-1]> and last
<Appocomaster> :)
<killeah[5-1]> <[app]Yosh{5-1]> and Yoshika for bring us roids and score and been very active and great player
<killeah[5-1]> ;)
<Appocomaster> thank you
<Appocomaster> well, congratulations to you all again
<Appocomaster> if you could get back to me with who I give the 5 credits to ... that'd be good

<Appocomaster> so, congratulations to you
<Appocomaster> hey I was voicing him!
<Fiery> slow poke
<Appocomaster> it's hard on irssi :(
<Appocomaster> so, congratulations
<[Ult]eksero> thank you!
<Appocomaster> does anyone want to explain how you managed to take an alliance of 50 to the top?
<[Ult]eksero> we managed to stay away from incs the first part of the round with the exception of 2-3 nights
<[Ult]eksero> and having mostly xans in ally
<Appocomaster> how did you play the politics? apparently there was a lot of action between alliances this round
<[Ult]Xyphistor> RaZeR picked a great race strat for us, and it paid off :)
<[Ult]agar3s> tbh our members were awesome at getting up to send defence
<[Ult]agar3s> and Appocomaster we just added 3 members today, they never sent a deffleet to any ult planet during the round
<Appocomaster> :o
<Appocomaster> hax!
<[Ult]agar3s> we just wanted no funny things happening
<[Ult]Xyphistor> ya
<[Ult]Xyphistor> just making sure we had a cushion :p
<[Ult]agar3s> in any case we won cause our members were awesome
<[Ult]agar3s> and our scanners managed to add in score aswell and tbh do a damn good job at scanning
<[Ult]agar3s> there werent many ticks they missed
<Appocomaster> as that your key?
<Appocomaster> what was the most important factor?
<[Ult]Xyphistor> activity/availability tbh
<[Ult]agar3s> and reese s naked pictures for the one with the most deffleets
<[Ult]Xyphistor> active members, came on when called
<[Ult]Xyphistor> good communication :)
<Appocomaster> agar3s!
<Appocomaster> so, key players this round?
<Appocomaster> did you feel lucky you slipped past CT near the end?
<[Ult]eksero> cheslink
<[Ult]Xyphistor> ok, I'm off the phone now ¬_¬
<[Ult]Xyphistor> lol
<Appocomaster> wb
<[Ult]agar3s> well we didnt have keyplayers appo, it was more a case of people caring for the ally more then their own planets
<[Ult]Xyphistor> yeah
<[Ult]Xyphistor> very much a team effort
<[Ult]Xyphistor> I will mention agar3s though (he's too modest to mention himself) :D
<[Ult]Xyphistor> did a lot of DCing and organising stuff during nights
<[Ult]Xyphistor> eksero too
<[Ult]Xyphistor> lots of commitment from lots of people DCing their gal's incs
<[Ult]Xyphistor> gals'*
<Appocomaster> how did you feel you fared against other alliances?
<[Ult]Xyphistor> surprisingly well tbh
<[Ult]Xyphistor> almost all xan gave us a pretty big advantage
<Appocomaster> did you not have issues roiding?
<[Ult]Xyphistor> not too many
<[Ult]Xyphistor> the initial plan was not to win the round
<Appocomaster> there was a protest from some xan players they couldn't hit
<[Ult]Xyphistor> so the fact that we couldn't roid other xan allies didn't matter (we thought) :p
<Appocomaster> :p
<[Ult]Xyphistor> there were plenty of other targets that we could roid while avoiding xan
<[Ult]Xyphistor> we thought ND would be the main competitor with their big cr/bs fleets, so we went pretty heavy on specs to counter that
<[Ult]Xyphistor> came in handy later on when we took DLR down in one battle :D
<Appocomaster> finally, are you returning next round?
<[Ult]Xyphistor> (for those who didn't see it: http://game.planetarion.com/show_ne...736j0b4p2jrvjh1 )
<[Ult]Xyphistor> :D
<[Ult]Xyphistor> yes, Ultores will be back next round
<Appocomaster> :)
<Appocomaster> well, thank you
<[Ult]Xyphistor> not sure how big/strong as yet, but we'll probably look to continue where we left off here :)
<Appocomaster> if you have no final comments?
<[Ult]Xyphistor> yes
<[Ult]Xyphistor> I do
<Appocomaster> ok
<[Ult]Xyphistor> first, really have to thank our allies
<[Ult]Xyphistor> xvx all round I think, very useful ally, great help from them
<[Ult]eksero> and also p3ng/tgv later on
<[Ult]Xyphistor> then TGV and p3ng later on came to our side, definitely helped us a lot
<[Ult]Xyphistor> ya
<[Ult]agar3s> and most none ult galmates in our fortgals
<[Ult]agar3s> for grounding each night when we were getting hit
<[Ult]Xyphistor> great ship strategy from razer <3
<[Ult]Xyphistor> mpulse wants me to mention #scans (again)
<[Ult]Xyphistor> public scan channel, they did a great job as usual (although probably not much for us)
<[Ult]Xyphistor> if anyone wants to contribute there next round go find mpulse in #scans :)
<[Ult]Xyphistor> final thing
<[Ult]Xyphistor> you might have noticed some consistency in our fleet names towards the end ¬_¬
<[Ult]Xyphistor> we're going to dedicate our roundwin to gangster's baby daughter Sara, who's currently in hospital and just had brain surgery
<[Ult]agar3s> !
<[Ult]Xyphistor> hope she recovers soon - our thoughts are with you Sara, and gangster <3
<Appocomaster> I'm sure the best wishes of all of us are with her
<[Ult]Xyphistor> thanks for a great round everyone, see you next time o/
<Appocomaster> I hope she does well
<Appocomaster> and recovers well
