EoRC Round 79 30/11/2018

<Appocomaster> Good evening, everyone, and welcome to the End of Round Ceremony for Round 79 ( Beneath the Stars)
<Appocomaster> the round just finished, with a really close end to the round
<Appocomaster> at least on the alliance front :p
<Appocomaster> we'll be interviewing the top planets, galaxy and alliance
<Appocomaster> firstly, top planets
<Appocomaster> these were Swainey, of TS, zagaveg, of CaRnage, and "the fake Cashy", of Conspiracy
<zagaveg> Hey
<[TS]Swainey> Thanks appoco
<Appocomaster> where's elviz?
<Appocomaster> or
<Appocomaster> whoever it is
<Appocomaster> who is the fake cashy :P fake nicking doesn't help at eorc
<[TS]Swainey> Heh

<Appocomaster> anyway, congrats, Swainey
<[TS]Swainey> Thank you
<zagaveg> Gratz Swainey
<[TS]Swainey> What a finish hey
<Appocomaster> were you worried you wouldn't make it?
<[TS]Swainey> Well done to you zag and also nd and 4:8
<Appocomaster> you definitely had the most roids by some measure
<[TS]Swainey> Yeah its 5am and i havent slept at all
<Appocomaster> wow

<[TS]Swainey> Zag hit on 5 8 kept me awake
<[TS]Swainey> Last second pull of def
<[TS]Swainey> Thought he had a few lands that make it closer
<Appocomaster> I don't think I've ever seen anyone win by so many roids (3.3k more than the next, who's only 5.5k)
<zagaveg> You would have won even if you landed that deff :)
<[TS]Swainey> Yeah gotta thank my escorts this round for the roids
<[TS]Swainey> Iambrad and archangle were amazing
<Appocomaster> you've been top for so long
<[TS]Swainey> I came from quite a way back
<Appocomaster> or near top
<Appocomaster> well, for the last week :p
<[TS]Swainey> Yeah last week only
<Appocomaster> but you've been top 50 for a while
<[TS]Swainey> Ask me 2 weeks ago and given myself 0 chance
<Appocomaster> any favourite moment of the round?
<zagaveg> Indeed :)
<[TS]Swainey> There was a lot of hard work and sacrifice from ts
<[TS]Swainey> But today for sure

<[IB]MRG> Ayy
<zagaveg> After several attempts to exile.me
<Appocomaster> yeha I voiced you
<Appocomaster> well, congrats all
<Appocomaster> how does it feel, having the #2 planet but being #1 galaxy?
<Appocomaster> I mean you get more credits out of it :P
<[VGN]Dimvin> Thanks :)
<[IB]MRG> Dimvin Blacky lam0r
<Napoleon_> Bit gutted for zag thought he played great round
<Appocomaster> a 3 horse race for galaxies
<[IB]MRG> Feels great to be #1. Lots of hard work to win. I’m exhausted
<[VGN]Dimvin> Yeah was a fun race and kept us on our toes
<Appocomaster> was it more galaxy vs galaxy wars, did you feel it was close and aimed to beat them, or was it a side effect of other battles?
<[VGN]Dimvin> My wife will be relieved it’s over :-)
<Appocomaster> CBA was GC :p
<Appocomaster> obviously having him to champion you to victory helped
<zagaveg> He is a monster
<[IB]MRG> Gal on gal towards the end. Props to 5.8 for making such a great run
<zagaveg> You wany him on your side
<zagaveg> Want
<[IB]MRG> I have a message from him for later
<Appocomaster> lucky us
<Appocomaster> you can share it now
<Appocomaster> or is it something you're going to get banned for?
<[IB]MRG> CBA ‘firstly thank to all gal - we had the best BP this round CBA/MRG/Zag/Sevenseas/gmufc - and great active randoms who did amazing dimvin napoleon Blacky lamor and Daocan. Also thank you to our friends - Appie HR - Carnage HQ - Stella. LukeyLove said to me a week into the round that the cream always rises to the top and that’s where we stayed ;) cheers all - excellent round / stats / wars and drama !!’
<zagaveg> It can not be CBA :))
<Appocomaster> so which of you is the frothy of the cream?
<[IB]MRG> He loves war. And attracts drama. Great pa player though.
<[VGN]Dimvin> Thanks from me go to Sjimmy for organising def whenever he could and rdnk for his magic fi!
<zagaveg> The galaxy is the cream
<Appocomaster> who held the galaxy together?
<zagaveg> But we had Carnage support
<Appocomaster> apart from cba, obviously
<[IB]MRG> We aimed for top gal from the beginning. It was a great run
<zagaveg> Cba tput me.to.exile several.times :))
<zagaveg> Guess they did not have funds too do it
<[IB]MRG> We all did our part. It took 10 of us. We thought for a long time we wouldn’t get a 10th planet.
<zagaveg> Been 1st for a long period
<zagaveg> :))
<zagaveg> Is that what you call keeping gal together? :)
<[VGN]Dimvin> Yeah took an age to get a tenth which meant we had to work harder for quite a while
<Napoleon_> Can i just say thanks for the round I had great fun :) gal was amazing and cheers to carn for covering me
<Appocomaster> any feedback on it or major points?
<Appocomaster> excited for the winter round or havoc?
<[VGN]Dimvin> Blacky passes his thanks to Hr for the support and the gal for not exiling him lol
<[IB]MRG> I was worried when 2:5 and 6:3 started swapping roids. But we rose above it and kept landing and grounding if 2 or more planets had incs. Rinse repeat.
<Appocomaster> favourite moment of the roubnd?
<[IB]MRG> Special thanks to the support I got from IB. The most active 44 in the game
<Appocomaster> not a bad group for sure
<[IB]MRG> Appoco, tick 1177 when the win was real.
<Appocomaster> :)
<zagaveg> Tick 1175 when i was still 1st :))
<Appocomaster> lol :p
<[IB]MRG> Special thanks to my brother Murfdawgg for getting me hooked on this game.
<[IB]MRG> Lol zag. Try harder next time
<Appocomaster> do you call him that irl?
<[IB]MRG> Of course
<[VGN]Dimvin> Thanks to my vgn defenders, was good fun for my first round back in a while
<Appocomaster> okay, any final words?
<[IB]MRG> Not excited for winter round. I think I’ll be more present in real life for a bit. Need a break.
<[IB]MRG> Yes.
<Appocomaster> np
<[VGN]Dimvin> Looking forward to undisturbed sleep!
<zagaveg> :))
<[IB]MRG> To all of the players playing legit still without large escorts and multis, cheers. Keep the game pure.
<zagaveg> I mustbhave inspired MRG :))
<Appocomaster> well, thanks all :)
<[IB]MRG> 4:8 rules
<[IB]MRG> Thanks Appoco
<Appocomaster> thanks again to the winners of top galaxy
<Appocomaster> now finally, for ND
<Appocomaster> back at the top
<Appocomaster> and out here in force!
<Appocomaster> sorry
<[ND]Turjake> Hi everyone :)
<Appocomaster> had to find which window Spritfire told me who to voice in :p
<Appocomaster> welcome back
<[ND]Spritfire> Evening (:
<Appocomaster> after a round off the #1 spot, back again
<Appocomaster> though it feels quite a close-run competition with DLR
<[ND]Turjake> First i have to say sorry for DLR, for lose like that. we didnt want to win like that.
<Appocomaster> considering there's only 2 DLR people in the channel, that's quite impressive
<Appocomaster> yes, I understand DLR would normally have been expected to win
<[ND]Turjake> And they were winning until that incident
<Appocomaster> so, that aside, how do you fele the round went?
<[ND]Turjake> It went great. We had action, politics and everything.
<[ND]Turjake> And it was tight race, so many alliances so close in score until end
<[ND]Turjake> couldnt predict how it would end up really
<Appocomaster> who were the key alliances, both competitiors and "king makers" ?
<[ND]Turjake> key alliances, all top 8 i guess
<[ND]Turjake> DLR was obvious top competitor
<Appocomaster> indeed
<[ND]Turjake> but heretics carnage did good job, and then out of nowehre also TS CT and IB rise high
<[ND]Turjake> Even ultores rise closer to top while being down almost whole round
<[ND]Turjake> King maker in the end was the block, who they going to hit last night
<[ND]Turjake> well, the block maybe too strong, but some sort of coalition atleast
<Appocomaster> and was there a key turning point in the round?
<[ND]Turjake> Perhaps there was, but quite early i think. For ND it was to survive that couple days barrage from ult and vgn, and slowly to gain on ult and end up covering all or most of their incs.
<[ND]Turjake> and this happened early, like t200-300 i think
<[ND]Turjake> strenghtened us to see we can manage well
<[ND]Spritfire> Yeah ult started to FC us around tick 180 :o
<Appocomaster> were they afraid of you even then?
<[ND]Turjake> not afraid, afterall this is all imaginary starships etc. but ofc everyone put effort into this so i guess they were pissed atleast :)
* Appocomaster nods
<Appocomaster> are there any plans for next round? back again?
<[ND]Turjake> seems ND is forever hehe. but i predict we might get alot opposition, like winner does
<Appocomaster> you often alternate winning rounds
<Appocomaster> 74, 77, 79
<[ND]Turjake> yep. 2 in row is exception
<Appocomaster> 73/4
<[ND]Spritfire> We like to hibernate :D
<[ND]Turjake> and wait for xp round, and xp stats :)
<Appocomaster> lol
<[ND]Spritfire> even tho we have the most value this round
<Appocomaster> well, you can take christmas off
<[ND]Spritfire> :D
<Appocomaster> any final words?
<[ND]Turjake> ye athis round our overall value and score was in its own league i think
<[ND]Turjake> oh i have a thank you list :D
<[ND]Turjake> bear with me, gonna paste some lines :D
<[ND]Turjake> here goes
<[ND]Turjake> First of all, biggest thanks to all ND members. And by all members I mean also those who volunteered to go into sisterally, the Rising.
<[ND]Turjake> All trying hard, no emo, no drama and surprisingly few crashes. All the newcomers fit in well. Friendly attitude in channels.
<[ND]Turjake> Thanks to top defenders and scanners for their sacrifise: Jonnypod, 4MOTION, Beermonster, Dany, Kallysandra, Obi and many others.
<[ND]Turjake> Big thanks to HC team, AFK-Lukey, Kallysandra, paragon, erke, spritfire, Wuschel (why is this guy hc? :D)
<[ND]Turjake> Buly, carDi and Lukey making our strat.
<[ND]Turjake> Also Buly and carDi as "advisors" giving me constant headache with their peculiar style of diplomacy, and one word sentences making walls of text.
<Appocomaster> :)
<[ND]Turjake> Thank you all other fellow competiting alliances, especially DLR for being firm and trustworthy friend.
<[ND]Turjake> Special mention to Ultores for their fighting spirit, never giving up eventho ND did give them alot incs for a long time.
<[ND]Turjake> And finally a thank you to all other alliance HCs i talked with, for civilized attitude and talks: Duncan, Kheros, Blue_esper, Hylands, gm, Judo, sjimmy, dekker, demort + avenger.
<[ND]Turjake> and that is all from me.
<[ND]Turjake> Spritfire own list? :D
<Appocomaster> thanks [ND]Turjake
<[ND]Spritfire> No list - I am getting to old for that :D
<[ND]Turjake> hehe
