<Appocomaster> Good evening, Ladies and Gentlemen!
<Appocomaster> Welcome to the Round 68 End of Round Ceremony
<Appocomaster> This evening we cover the winners of the round
<Appocomaster> some more details on the end of the round, havoc and dates for next round are on our portal page
<Appocomaster> as a reminder, please e-mail any round name suggestions to email@example.com
<Appocomaster> I've been told by Fiery to say that they "can't be dirty" - this is non-negotiable, apparently. If they are, we won't shortlist them
<Appocomaster> so, without further ado, we'll move on to the top planets
<Zwanstic> Party Over!
<Appocomaster> congrats to the three of you
<Appocomaster> despite the tagging, they are all of Ultores
<Appocomaster> with Zwanstic first, Wolf second, and agar3s third
<Appocomaster> so congrats to all of you
<Appocomaster> how did you manage to lock out the top ranks so well?
<Appocomaster> Adds snuck in to t5 final tick, so it was a fairly effective lock out for t5
<Zwanstic> Ultores was key to the ranks
<Zwanstic> The group of players we have is awesome and good gals backing it up
<Appocomaster> (no one has done that at all, or if so not in rounds)
<Appocomaster> so was it all easy going?
<[WWpal]Wolf> Adds was lucky to finish t5
<[Ult]agar3s> was no luck there
<Appocomaster> yeah, so it was only the other 4 which were not lucky? :p
<[Ult]agar3s> we roided #6 last tick :P
<Appocomaster> do you have your own little "top planet" bg within ultores?
<Zwanstic> my Bg really helped l0lz f1nch Tuck Spycors & Zapp
<Zwanstic> we attack every round
<Zwanstic> without them i could never have a top planet
<Appocomaster> did you all have your own bgs? how did you sort out who got support?
<[Ult]agar3s> and xerx who dced all your incs
<[Ult]agar3s> while u slept like a baby
<Zwanstic> calling each other and calvin
<[WWpal]Wolf> Yea had my galmate Fingman to join attacks with me, later on I had a chance for top3 he escorted me including galla and sometimes a few other people! you cant do it alone
<[WWpal]Wolf> xerxes was annoying again, keeps calling me every night 3/4 times
<Appocomaster> how competitive was it between you?
<[WWpal]Wolf> think we all wanted to win
<Zwanstic> Xer does the hard work while Aga take all the glory :D
<Zwanstic> it didnt matter to us we wanted ally win
<Appocomaster> says the winner!
<Zwanstic> then between us Aga knows he could keep up with me and wolf :D
<Appocomaster> Zwanstic: when did you realise you'd won?
<Zwanstic> T1 i signed up!
<Appocomaster> ha :p
<Appocomaster> did race choice help?
<[Ult]agar3s> zwan winning is like winning the lottery appo
<Zwanstic> Xan always helps but wasn't the strongest
<Appocomaster> he was 2nd in r60
<Zwanstic> Having the top gal helped a lot they all grounded for me every time i had inca
<[Ult]agar3s> ult defense is most likely the deciding factor
<[Ult]agar3s> what do you mean by that appo, that he s very lucky ?
<Appocomaster> maybe p
<[WWpal]Wolf> yea also 2:5 gal helped me a lot WWPALS ! :D
<Zwanstic> Very unlucky :D
<Appocomaster> Zwanstic: anyone in particular you want to call out beyond your bg?
<[Ult]agar3s> congratz Zwanstic
<Zwanstic> Xex & aga Dcing
<Zwanstic> with pl def and 230 inca
<Zwanstic> they protected our top planets
<Zwanstic> Eksero & Elviiz helping me in gal and attacking
<Zwanstic> + the rest of Gal
<Appocomaster> we'll get to them soon
<Appocomaster> so top gal was the deciding factor?
<Zwanstic> Top Gal is always the last line of defence
<Zwanstic> in this case they saved me many times
<Zwanstic> * our Chimp who does Ult Politics
<Appocomaster> to be fair, you have been t5 since about tick 160
<Appocomaster> so pretty well done staying there
<Zwanstic> i went 50 MC
<Zwanstic> then had to change as age had loads of ref until bows crash roided him
<Appocomaster> Zwanstic: any last thanks before we move on to Wolf?
<Zwanstic> nope i'm done, thanks all and until next round :D
<Appocomaster> apart from the OTHER TWO PARTS which you are involved in
<Appocomaster> okay, [WWpal]Wolf, congrats to you too
<[WWpal]Wolf> thx :)
<Appocomaster> did you feel agar3s breathing down your neck?
<[WWpal]Wolf> yes he always is
<Appocomaster> but partiuclarly in this round? :p
<Appocomaster> to be fair, he has been here a lot
<[WWpal]Wolf> hehe yes! me zwan and aga were very close from t800 orso
<Appocomaster> 7 top 3 finishes since r41
<Appocomaster> do you think if you and zwan swapped gals, you could have won?
<[WWpal]Wolf> ah cant say bad things about my gal apoco! ;)
<Appocomaster> ah, must have been race choice then :p
<[WWpal]Wolf> we did great as gal , some people in Ult didnt expect to do so well
<[Ult]agar3s> wolf lost 184 roids all round appo
<[WWpal]Wolf> yup, my gal saved my ass a lot
<[WWpal]Wolf> so did Xerx en aga
<Appocomaster> that's pretty good going
<[WWpal]Wolf> and we only had 8 planets till tick 715
<Appocomaster> any defining moments?
<[WWpal]Wolf> well had a lot of fun with gal, they pushed me to go for top3!
<Appocomaster> good :)
<Appocomaster> any other thanks?
<Appocomaster> or we'll get to agar3s :)
<[WWpal]Wolf> well think thats it!
<Appocomaster> agar3s! first third place finish
<[Ult]agar3s> have to taste every spot there is i guess
<Appocomaster> how are you coping?
<[Ult]agar3s> fine, i went into the round saying i d be inactive and not dc
<Appocomaster> not bad for an inactive
<[Ult]agar3s> for the most part i kept to that promise and got to where i was through chimpies politics
<[Ult]agar3s> if you have to launch 2 attacks and check up on them in the morning you dont lose alot of energy doing it
<Appocomaster> did you prelaunch much?
<[Ult]agar3s> +9 was the highest i think
<[Ult]agar3s> so yes, alot and often too
<Appocomaster> well, it seems to be a valid tactic
<Appocomaster> getting older, people seem to want sleep more :P
<Appocomaster> any thanks from your side?
<[Ult]agar3s> i want to think my galmates and bitesize in particular
<Appocomaster> ha :p
<[Ult]agar3s> for escorting me the final weeks
<[Ult]agar3s> yes asc for roiding zwanstic under my orders
<[Ult]agar3s> he cried himself to sleep that night!
<[Ult]agar3s> i guess rainbows for making me active the past 2 weeks too
<[Ult]agar3s> and whole of ult ofcourse
<[Ult]agar3s> they were splendid once again
<Appocomaster> are we going to see you next round?
<[Ult]agar3s> with what activity remains to be seen, but we ll be there
<Appocomaster> okay, well, thanks all
<Appocomaster> yep :)
<[WWpal]Wolf> agar3s will be swinging again
<Appocomaster> well, thanks all
<Appocomaster> now onto the top galaxy
<[ULT]Zwanstic> none are around :D
<[Norse]Sandvold> think joe is tired of gal wins
<Appocomaster> well, congrats to you all
<[Norse]Sandvold> don't think i've seen elviz on eor since the first he won so he's a no show as always
<[Norse]Sandvold> don't think anywone really planned on saying something
<Appocomaster> for reference, the winning galaxy was 4:10, including Joseph, XiCoT, zapp, Skydivenaked, Zwanstic, Sandvold, CRISMT, eksero, Joepie, and elviz
<[Norse]Sandvold> but we were really lucky with the shuffle
<[Norse]Sandvold> so we knew we would be contenders
<[ULT]Zwanstic> hardest part of winning gal was staying out of top 10 until PT336
<Appocomaster> also you had Joseph
<[FL]Joepie> ty :)
<[Norse]Sandvold> no zwan
<[ULT]Zwanstic> So Elviz nub could join
<[Norse]Sandvold> hardest part was keeping u from launching!
<[Norse]Sandvold> rest managed just fine
<Appocomaster> aww that was nice of you
<[Norse]Sandvold> but yea we waited a bit for elviz
<Appocomaster> then went on a stampede to the top?
<[Norse]Sandvold> and then we were really lucky getting joepie in right before elviz could late sign
<Appocomaster> did the mix of alliances help?
<[Norse]Sandvold> dont think we ever talked much about it
<Appocomaster> sorry XiCoT
<[FL]Joepie> yeh we didnt get that many galraids
<Appocomaster> nice of you to join us again, Joseph
<XiCoT> np i were joking
<[ULT]Zwanstic> Having Hc in Bows / Ult / Norse helped
<Appocomaster> everyone is waking up!
<Appocomaster> what I want to know
<[ULT]Zwanstic> Calm down Eks
<Appocomaster> I think the important question everyone wants to know
<Appocomaster> is what happened to the gal name and pic?
<[BowS]Joseph> I can only be brief.. Thanks to Gal and fantastic BowS
<XiCoT> having me there was what real metters
<Appocomaster> wrong Joseph :p
<Appocomaster> Joseph: what did you want to say?
<Appocomaster> if anything :o
<[Norse]Sandvold> Thanks to everyone in the gal, was great playing with you. Also thanks to all Norse. Sorry for being inactive this round. But always great playig withyou guys
<Appocomaster> XiCoT: I am sure you made all the difference
<[Norse]Sandvold> xicot only crashed
<Joseph> want to congrat all gal m8s from being active and played very well...
<[ULT]Zwanstic> thanks to all for grounding last week and defending vrs idiot waves
<[Norse]Sandvold> you forgot joepie Appocomaster
<[FL]Joepie> nah im here now ;)
<Appocomaster> pay attention!
<[Norse]Sandvold> why did u complain on wa you idiot:P
<Appocomaster> so, what do you attribute your fairly hefty win over 2:5 to?
<Appocomaster> was there any planning? or just good covering?
<XiCoT> "[18:09] <+Zwanstic> it didnt matter to us we wanted ally win" it was fun, after he sold all his top3 mates kkkkk
<[ULT]Zwanstic> We are better!
<[Norse]Sandvold> everyone is gal is good players,
<[Norse]Sandvold> so cover was easy
<[Norse]Sandvold> ppl knew what to send, updated calcs
<Joseph> the most important thing to say, imho, is the name need some gasoline... sandvold was talking about some ideas.. maybe its a good idea discuss it
<[Norse]Sandvold> getting cross def etc
<XiCoT> yeah it is
<XiCoT> 30 man allies
<XiCoT> full rank
<Appocomaster> different discussion, XiCoT
<Joseph> xicot is idiot
<Appocomaster> oh hey
<Appocomaster> that's unfair
<Appocomaster> that's like, 20% of your galaxy who are idiots now :p
<Appocomaster> any final thanks or highlighting or anything?
<[ULT]Zwanstic> Wa is key
<[ULT]Zwanstic> without it our gal would fail hard we never used irc once
<[FL]Joepie> I want to thank all Gal members and Faceless / Unsullied! We did a great job with half the alliance in top 100. Small tag, lots of fun, thanks for the round guys!
<Appocomaster> okay, thanks all
<Appocomaster> now, finally, the winning alliance
<[ULT]Zwanstic> always late!
<Appocomaster> back at the top
<Appocomaster> after 3, 3, 2
<Appocomaster> there we go
<Appocomaster> lots of people
<Appocomaster> Zwan gets to stay as he was in the other two
<[Ult]agar3s> ye otherwise he might get upset
<Appocomaster> so congrats
<[ULT]Zwanstic> Xer first time?
<Appocomaster> after your good run in the 40's you're back to the top :)
<Appocomaster> *members may have changed a bit
<[ult]Xerxes> I fell alseep and missed our last round win
<[ult]Xerxes> So i am happy to be here
<Appocomaster> so what was your winning tactic? with such a substantial win?
<[ult]Xerxes> Nice pols from chimpie, nice dcing from me and agar3s, and awesome members
<Appocomaster> you forgot BaZZa
<[Ult]agar3s> bazza is BC
<[ult]Xerxes> Nice target picking from bazza
<[Ult]Chimpie> Good members, good allies(for the most part)good dcing, good raids(given restrictions)
<Appocomaster> were there any rivals in particular?
<[Ult]Chimpie> And a good tactic
<[ULT]Zwanstic> you always need 1 token who is selfish and gets a massive score, lucky Ult have me i tick all the boxes
<[ult]Xerxes> Well, we didnt compete from the start... Since we werent set up to win in the beginnkng
<Appocomaster> did you purposefully not try and NAP or ally anyone else in the top 5?
<[Ult]agar3s> zwan was reported for tax evasion
<Appocomaster> not putting in the 5%?
<[ult]Xerxes> But, a lot of core members signed up late, and we started to dc around tick 300 - which turned the ship around
<[Ult]agar3s> put him on the wall of shame
<[ULT]Zwanstic> I am ROBIN HOOD
<Appocomaster> well, you certainly turned it around
<[Ult]agar3s> only to notice he s been there before
<[Ult]agar3s> its covered with his acts :|
<Appocomaster> surprised he got any def
<[Ult]Chimpie> I'm idling now, out fishing, but big thanks to unsullied and norse, and nd after our fight, you made a difference. That's all from me
<Appocomaster> well, enjoy the fishing :)
<[ult]Xerxes> Also, thanks to all the great members who keep waking up in the middle of the night to our calls
<[ult]Xerxes> It is really what puts us apart
<Appocomaster> do you use IRC?
<[ult]Xerxes> We added a few new faces this round, who all joined the family nicely
<Appocomaster> slack? WA? Telegram?
<[ult]Xerxes> Yeah, irc
<[Ult]agar3s> WA + irc
<[ult]Xerxes> But we dc through pms on WA mostly
<[Ult]agar3s> spamcall using irc and leaving whatsapp messages
<[ULT]Zwanstic> Xyph for tech
<[ult]Xerxes> And spam calli g obviously
<[Ult]agar3s> dont think we ever had credit on the ult bot lol
<[ult]Xerxes> Indeed not :D
<[ult]Xerxes> Also, thx to vulgar and berten for setting up callbots when we had troubles with xxx (xyphs bot)
<Appocomaster> did you expect more competition?
<Appocomaster> will we see you back next round to win agin?
<[ult]Xerxes> I thibk i expected the block to last lpnger tbh
<Appocomaster> well, everyone else be warned :p
<[ult]Xerxes> Me and my heroic spelling on the phone
<[ult]Xerxes> I would also like to mention, that the ally-fleet thingy should be removed - it is hilariously unbalanced
<Appocomaster> did you think it helped you to win?
<[Ult]agar3s> we do fine without it
<[ult]Xerxes> No, its just unbalanced imho
<[ult]Xerxes> It makes activity less rewarding
<[ULT]Zwanstic> it gives me a solid 8 hours sleep :D
<Appocomaster> there are balances
<[Ult]agar3s> did u ever use it zwan ?
<[ULT]Zwanstic> i used the launch feature :D
<[ult]Xerxes> Appoco, not really... I as a dc can solo stop 20 people live launching...
<[ult]Xerxes> With little effort
<Appocomaster> we will review
<Appocomaster> might be a feature we toggle for some rounds
<Appocomaster> any final thanks? if not we'll move on to the allcomp
<[ult]Xerxes> Also, we would of course like to mend fences with rainbows... So we habe decided to add a new person to ultores command - from now on, cardinal is our special diplomatic envoy to RB to mend fences and bring good relations
<Appocomaster> hahahahaha. sorry. haha. :p
<[ult]Xerxes> And final thanks is to our memebers for being awesome and letting us wake them 2-3 times a night
<Appocomaster> thanks all :)
<Appocomaster> now, the allcomp!
