<Appocomaster> http://www.planetarion.com/news/new...nd-and-round-70
<Appocomaster> then we'll have round 70 signups at the end of december!
<Appocomaster> Anyway, Round 70 round name subimssions are open, round70@planetarion.com to submit your suggestions
<Appocomaster> to entertain Fiery :P
<Appocomaster> and to provide serious suggestions which may win a credit
<Appocomaster> now, we'll go to the eorc ceremony
<Appocomaster> first place, we have agar3s
<Appocomaster> who has a semi permanet seat here :p
<Appocomaster> oops
<Appocomaster> second place, we have DeeJay!
<[Ult]DeeJay> HELLO!
<[Ult]agar3s> lol
<Appocomaster> and third, we just had Xoca sneak in
<[UNS]Xoca> SUP MY FRIENDS \O/
<Appocomaster> (bad luck Razer)
<Appocomaster> so, congrats to you all
<[Ult]DeeJay> it should've been RaZeR
<[Ult]DeeJay> :/
<Appocomaster> you just managed to stop ult getting a top 3 clean sweep
<[Ult]agar3s> razer too busy making #4 rank his own
<[UNS]Xoca> It should have been me anyway if your ally didnt betrayed mine last day of round :D
<Appocomaster> so, agar3s, how are you doing?
<[Ult]agar3s> good good
<[Ult]agar3s> waited 7 weeks to talk to you again baby
<[Ult]agar3s> ;)
<Appocomaster> 10 weeks!
<[Ult]agar3s> i guess
<Appocomaster> I was so sad :(
<[Ult]DeeJay> he didnt sleep i think
<[Ult]agar3s> but i slept those 3 weeks
<[Ult]agar3s> haha
<Appocomaster> do you start every round thinking we're going to have a conversation?
<Appocomaster> is there anything different you want to say this round? :P
<[Ult]agar3s> thats my goal in the round obviously
<[Ult]agar3s> but ye it was a close one, alot of planets able to win if they landed right on the last day
<Appocomaster> were you worried for your victory?
<[Ult]agar3s> i only started believing i could win a few days ago
<[Ult]agar3s> after ct's topplanet got roided really hard jumper started escorting me to #1
<Appocomaster> how much did alliance politics play in this?
<[Ult]agar3s> alot
<[Ult]DeeJay> a lot
<[Ult]DeeJay> with space
<[Ult]agar3s> we had a hard start but finished strong
<Appocomaster> depends if you're an oatmeal reader ;)
<[Ult]DeeJay> his girlfriend is british, she should at least teach him to spell right
<[Ult]agar3s> please
<[Ult]agar3s> :D
<Appocomaster> and you got the #3 galaxy and top 2 plnets - do you feel you should have been challenging for #1 galaxy?
<[Ult]agar3s> nah we were never really in that race
<[Ult]agar3s> we just went with the flow tbh
<[Ult]agar3s> got avoided alot while ult was being hit
<[Ult]agar3s> but we had our fleets grounded for too long to compete i think
<Appocomaster> what was the high point in the round for you?
<Appocomaster> apart from winning :P
<[UNS]Xoca> Probably attacking me last day ^.^
<[Ult]agar3s> landing xoca idd
<[Ult]agar3s> he sent me a creepy WA
<[Ult]agar3s> like a set of eyes
<[Ult]agar3s> lol
<[UNS]Xoca> I am watching you
<[Ult]agar3s> ye i got that
<[UNS]Xoca> thats what i means
<[UNS]Xoca> :p
<[Ult]agar3s> it was funny lol
<[Ult]agar3s> nothing in particular tbh
<Appocomaster> DeeJay, you?
<Appocomaster> congrats on second :)
<[Ult]DeeJay> thank you!
<[Ult]DeeJay> i have 3 big thanks
<[Ult]DeeJay> no particular order
<[Ult]DeeJay> darts for being my teamup the entire round and recalling last fed days to let me solo land for top 3
<[Ult]DeeJay> jumper for upgrading me
<[Ult]DeeJay> and agar3s for DCing me not even god remembers how many times
<[Ult]DeeJay> thanks to all of ultores, one of the greatest alliances in PA
<Appocomaster> quite a few :p
<[Ult]agar3s> ye he doesnt want you to ask him questions appo
<Appocomaster> haha
<Appocomaster> no problem
<[Ult]agar3s> he s a bit of an eager beaver lol
<Appocomaster> agar3s- any thanks?
<[Ult]DeeJay> heh
<[Ult]DeeJay> you can ask questions
<[Ult]agar3s> to my galmates for their support all round
<[Ult]agar3s> to ultores for keeping me alive and kicking
<Appocomaster> DeeJay - favourite moment? was it landing that solo?
<[Ult]agar3s> and to our opponents for making it interesting
<[Ult]DeeJay> favorite moment?
<[Ult]DeeJay> i can tell you my least favorite
<[Ult]DeeJay> huge apprime lolwave
<[Ult]DeeJay> fake covered
<[Ult]DeeJay> all fleets fake
<Appocomaster> lol
<[Ult]DeeJay> and some apprime guy crashes
<[Ult]DeeJay> and roids me
<Appocomaster> oops :P
<[Ult]DeeJay> i could stop 9 out of 10 fleets solo
<[Ult]DeeJay> just not him
<Appocomaster> ouch
<[Ult]DeeJay> favorite one?
<[Ult]DeeJay> i dunno
<[Ult]DeeJay> i fked up once
<[Ult]DeeJay> and sent real on fake wave
<[Ult]DeeJay> and fake on real
<[Ult]DeeJay> and each was covered for the exact opposite
<[Ult]DeeJay> so i landed both solo
<[Ult]agar3s> definatly a "mistake" ;)
<[Ult]DeeJay> i PLed and went to sleep
<[Ult]DeeJay> how would I know
<[Ult]DeeJay> :D
<Appocomaster> that worked :p
<Appocomaster> lol
<Appocomaster> okay, moving on
<Appocomaster> Xoca!
<Appocomaster> how are you doing?
<Appocomaster> kinda smug you madeit?
<[UNS]Xoca> Feeling good, i had accepted that i lost t3
<[UNS]Xoca> then xerxes came into my pm while i was driving telling me i made it
<[UNS]Xoca> cause razer crashed
<[UNS]Xoca> special thanks to him for it <3
<Appocomaster> I hope you didn't crash
<Appocomaster> :p
<[UNS]Xoca> I did a bit :x
<[UNS]Xoca> Thanks to all Unsullied who helped me covering incs and escorting me end of round when i needed, and also my gal who helped me a lot in the same way, couldnt make it without them.
<[UNS]Xoca> Everyone did a great job, its not easy to get a high ranked planet playing with a half tag
<[UNS]Xoca> needs a lot of good pols and dedication
<Appocomaster> sos t hat must have been your favourite part of the round?
<[UNS]Xoca> nope
<[UNS]Xoca> it was when i saw ultores breaking alliance with us
<[UNS]Xoca> and attacking me with lol waves
<[UNS]Xoca> cause agar3s was afraid of losing to me
<[UNS]Xoca> ;)
<[UNS]Xoca> that made my round
<[Ult]agar3s> only cause you go around asking people if you can land them
<[Ult]agar3s> ;)
<Appocomaster> :o
<[Ult]agar3s> ps: it is not allowed
<[UNS]Xoca> no i dont :D
<Appocomaster> any final thanks then?
<[UNS]Xoca> defamation, thats what its called
<[UNS]Xoca> :D
<Appocomaster> and then we'll get the galaxy up
<[UNS]Xoca> Thanks to all brazillians who helped me too, even if they landed quite a few on me during the round
<[UNS]Xoca> just for lulz
<[UNS]Xoca> And death to Ultores
<[UNS]Xoca> :)
<Appocomaster> thanks and congrats to you all :)
<[Ult]DeeJay> ohh
<[UNS]Xoca> I am rude
<[Ult]DeeJay> and a special mention to josh
<[Ult]agar3s> when you cant be the best, kill the best he says
<[UNS]Xoca> :)

<Joseph> yeah, i crashed to give my brazilians friends in 7 5 the taste of victory =p
<Appocomaster> but not hard enough
<[CT]Striker-3-7> Yea, it was too close at 1176
<Sandvold_afk> And coctaeu decided to crash 400k cutlass earlier this week
<[CT]Striker-3-7> Lol
<Appocomaster> well, you both obviously tried to lose it
<Appocomaster> I guess you didn't try hard enough
<Appocomaster> learn from razer!
<Sandvold_afk> Got to congratulate 7:5 they made us play real hard last week
<Joseph> haha razer my hero =p
<Appocomaster> <3 RaZeR
<Joseph> idd, 7 5 gave us reasons to play
<Joseph> well done bibas
<Appocomaster> yes, definite honourable mention to 7:5
<Appocomaster> was close
<[CT]Striker-3-7> Was supposed to be my round off, but every morning at work, i looked like a newborn kitten when i showed up
<Appocomaster> so what was the favourite moment?
<Appocomaster> lol
<Appocomaster> DCing all night?
<Joseph> app going into vacation
<Joseph> =p
<Joseph> we had many of them ingal this round
<Joseph> so i felt like that could make us lose
<eboGer> I hehe yeah
<Sandvold_afk> I stayed out for u joe!
<Joseph> but ended up being the high IQ plan (motti)
<[CT]Striker-3-7> Had to try and get deg for my incs :p
<[CT]Striker-3-7> Def*
<Joseph> u stayed out bcoz u had fleets returning hahaha
<Appocomaster> who did the most for the galaxy?
<Sandvold_afk> :)
<[FU]Legacy> Elviz
<Sandvold_afk> Cocteau no doubt
<Appocomaster> ooh
<Appocomaster> fight fight
<Sandvold_afk> Elviz played 1 eeek
<Appocomaster> galaxy vote!
<Sandvold_afk> :)
<Joseph> elviz always play 1 week
<Joseph> cocteau ftw
<[CT]Striker-3-7> Favoritt moment? When i managed to land 750 roids with stolen de-ships, and suddenly made a big jump:p
<[CT]Striker-3-7> And last week race
<Joseph> and we miss pompom btw
<Joseph> need him back
<Joseph> =)
<Appocomaster> Pommeh?
<Sandvold_afk> Ye
<Appocomaster> aww
<Appocomaster> well, get approval from his wife :p
<Appocomaster> anyone else have a favourite galaxy player?
<Sandvold_afk> Actually i think we played quite bsd
<Sandvold_afk> Loads of mistakes
<Sandvold_afk> But everyone got together last qeek
<Sandvold_afk> And did a massive push
<Appocomaster> when it matters
<Joseph> idd, was the laziest round ever
<[CT]Striker-3-7> My first gal win :s
<Appocomaster> wow
<Appocomaster> that was excessive
<Appocomaster> :o
<Appocomaster> wb
<Appocomaster> what was the game featuer which made a difference? are alliance war or alliance def fleets having an impact still?
<Joseph> dont like to talk about this in eorc, but would be nice if PA bring us some newsies for next year =)
<Joseph> well
<Appocomaster> newsies?
<[CT]Striker3-7> Ty
<Joseph> alliance def fleets helps the daily incs
<Appocomaster> asin news scans?
<Joseph> nope, some new features, dunno, anything nice
<Joseph> but alliance def fleets dont help when u get real incs
<Joseph> so in regular days, u can let members sleeps, but in hard inc days, its the same, u have to wake them up anyway
<Appocomaster> fair enough
<Joseph> ingame war button have to be improved, dunno how, but it can be a way better for the game dynamic then now
<Appocomaster> such as?
<Joseph> dunno, u guys usually do nice things
<Joseph> was discussing it with some players
<Appocomaster> well, we have the winter round to ply with for now
<Joseph> idd
<Appocomaster> with a ticker which might run twice as fast, which might help
<Joseph> summer round for us, tyvm =p
<Appocomaster> (a good time to trial it :P)
<Appocomaster> sorry :p
<Appocomaster> Christmas round
<Joseph> but actually, the game runs based on gangs.. maybe the ingame war button can change it a bit
<Joseph> make more fair wars
<Joseph> if some1 declare war to u
<Appocomaster> we had some few wars this round though - it semes to go in waves
<Joseph> u cap more XP on def
<Joseph> dunno
<Appocomaster> :) fair enough
<Appocomaster> we can take suggestions on
<Appocomaster> okay, any final thanks before we move onto the alliance?
<Joseph> anyway, i feel the round was nice
<Joseph> for sure thanks future, new tag, many problems
<[CT]Striker3-7> Thanks to my teamup, omni, wich sorter targets for me and him 90% of the time
<Joseph> but i can say start a new tag is very hard.. so well done, and ty for the support
<[CT]Striker3-7> And to the gal, wich did good with ingal def
<Appocomaster> well, thanks to you all
<Joseph> also thank all UNTOUCHABLES.. even the ones who cant play... greenhills, pommeh, redrush, sepa etc etc, nice team
<Joseph> cya appoco
<Appocomaster> okay, and lastly, ultores
<Appocomaster> retaining their crown!
<Appocomaster> my bad
<[ult]Xerxes> o/
<Appocomaster> agar3s told me to voice others :p
<[Ult]agar3s> ye
<[Ult]agar3s> i know you like some 1on1 action but ye
<[Ult]agar3s> not today
<[ult]Xerxes> lol
<Appocomaster> haha
<Appocomaster> np
<Appocomaster> later ;)
<[Ult]Chimpie> oooh, pay per view?
<Appocomaster> nope
<[Ult]Chimpie> :\
<Appocomaster> so, congrats on retaining your crown
<[ult]Xerxes> cheers
<Appocomaster> are you going to try and retain it for a third time in a row?
<[ult]Xerxes> ofc
<[Ult]Chimpie> we dont have a habit of not trying tbh, so if the members are up for it, i guess we all are
<Appocomaster> good
<[ult]Xerxes> We did a really nice come back this round, a special thanks to all of our members to showed real endurance in staying in the game when we got blocked for 350-400 ticks
<Appocomaster> yes, it was only really in the last week where you shot up
<[ult]Xerxes> well, we were top in the beginning, and got blocked
<[ult]Xerxes> too bad no one wants to fight us 1 vs 1 :D
<[Ult]Chimpie> screw that
<[Ult]Chimpie> 1 on 1 doesnt work
<[Ult]Chimpie> but blocks were big this round
<Appocomaster> how did you plot your comeback?
<[Ult]Chimpie> a bit too big at times
<[Ult]Chimpie> well, tryijng to influence the opposing block by talks and strategic incs
<[Ult]Chimpie> kinda made the block deal behind eachothers back and it created an opening
<Appocomaster> were you worried it'd backfire?
<[Ult]Chimpie> tbh we kinda set the endgame strat quite early, since we were so far behind
<[Ult]Chimpie> nah, we were what? rank 5 and almost completely out of it, we had nothing to lose
<[ult]Xerxes> yeah - well timed politics were essential, but we would have been dead and burried if our members didn't keep fighting on and agreeing to being woken up during the night after 350 ticks of gangbang - our endurance is epic
<Appocomaster> what was the biggest thing which allowed you to get first?
<[Ult]Chimpie> thats the thing, members kept launching as instructed despite us being in the shit
<[Ult]Chimpie> members' loyality is #1 in my book
<[Ult]Chimpie> they kept at it despite stuff being rough yet again
<[Ult]Chimpie> which made xerx and agar3s put in all nighters, which made enemies concerned about not landing etc
<Appocomaster> anyone you want to call out for in particulr?
<Appocomaster> ah
<Appocomaster> :p
<Appocomaster> ^^
<Appocomaster> anyone else? :p
<[Ult]agar3s> VGN & ND
<[Ult]Chimpie> ofc
<[Ult]agar3s> for stick with us while we were getting gangbanged
<[Ult]Chimpie> pure class, soldig standup guys
<[Ult]Chimpie> *solid
<[Ult]agar3s> others for keeping their eor deals \o/
<[Ult]Chimpie> lol, ye, that was a big concern
<[Ult]Chimpie> we had quite a few deals at the end, and we werent sure they'd be kept
<[ult]Xerxes> I'm gonna give a shout out to our top 10 defenders: Xerxes, [RB]Annihilator, iBorg, JoVe82, lrgcow, Sardaukar, Bazza, Legion85, Chimpie, GuPPie.
<Appocomaster> well researched
<Appocomaster> Bazza, anything to say?
<[Ult]Bazza> App going in vac was the turning point I think - it kinda split the block and gave us the opening to push on
<[Ult]Bazza> Thanks to Chimpie for being the master of politics & to Xerxes & agar3s for awesome DC'ing & ofc to all the members who got woke up at stupid o'clock to def, recall & re-send etc.
<Appocomaster> ah :P
<Appocomaster> magic
<[Ult]agar3s> for an old man you type fast baz ;)
<[Ult]agar3s> :D
<[Ult]Bazza> that's all from me
<[Ult]Bazza> notepad ftw!
<[Ult]agar3s> i know
<[Ult]Chimpie> and thank you to our contenders, p3ng went at us head on(respect) and app gave us a hard time for 1000 ticks(well played)
<[Ult]Chimpie> and our very own bc machine, bazza
<[Ult]Bazza> :-)
<Appocomaster> any final thanks or comments?
<[Ult]Chimpie> Xyphistor and the scan crew
<Appocomaster> will you be looking to do different strategies in r70?
<[Ult]agar3s> there should ne new rules about farming
<[Ult]Chimpie> i bet xyph hates us all immensely
<[Ult]agar3s> so the MH can take action more freely
<[Ult]agar3s> no one is going to use ingame mail to discuss it :p
<[ult]Xerxes> also... remove the ally def fleets please, they give the wrong incentives
<Appocomaster> we can consider for r70
<[Ult]Chimpie> <@Appocomaster> will you be looking to do different strategies in r70? <<< always and never, and not telling anyone(but it involves RaZeR not crashing, don't share that one)
<Appocomaster> :p
<[ult]Xerxes> I heard RaZeR is aiming for #4 again next round
<[ult]Xerxes> apparently his secret ambition every round
<Appocomaster> well, good luck to him
<Appocomaster> well, thanks all :)
<[ult]Xerxes> thx to recluse for reliable time zone
<[ult]Xerxes> and def
<[Ult]Chimpie> un4208 is pro
<[Ult]Bazza> I think also allies with full tags should not be allowed to ally/nap each other
<Appocomaster> interesting
<[Ult]agar3s> un4208 is a person ?
<[Ult]Bazza> just a thought
<[Ult]agar3s> i been typing bot commands to him all round
<[Ult]agar3s> no wonder he didnt reply
<Appocomaster> something to discuss :)
<[Ult]agar3s> lol
<Appocomaster> lol
<Appocomaster> well, thanks
