EoRC Round 80 01/02/2019

<Appocomaster> Good evening, everyone
<Appocomaster> and welcome to the End of Round Ceremony for Round 80: Crash and Burn
<Appocomaster> It's been an eventful round
<Appocomaster> not least because it sadly saw the passing of one of the biggest and well-known figures in the community, Pam aka Catwoman
<Appocomaster> The ongoing naming battle for Round 81 is at the tie-break stage, but I think everyone has acknowledged the impact this has had on the game in their Round 81 submissions and the tiebreak is no exception to that: http://pirate.planetarion.com/showt...d.php?p=3263030
<Appocomaster> Pam, you'll be missed dreadfully by the community and you're still in all our thoughts
<Appocomaster> Moving on, we're here to celebrate the winners of Round 80 tonight
<Appocomaster> This includes the top 3 planets, the top galaxy and the top alliance
<Appocomaster> we'll be starting with the top 3 planets
<Appocomaster> good timing, eksero
<Appocomaster> our winning planet
<Appocomaster> Joseph, second place
<Appocomaster> I can't see third place
<[norse]joseph[b> killerman
<[norse]joseph[b> cant come
<Appocomaster> thanks, Joseph
<Appocomaster> he snuck inat the last tick
<[norse]joseph[b> yeap
<Appocomaster> (bad luck, TeK)
<Appocomaster> so congrats to you both
<Appocomaster> [Ult]eksero: are you there?
<Appocomaster> just before I start asking questions :p
<[Ult]eksero> i am!
<Appocomaster> hurray!
<Appocomaster> congratulations
<[Ult]eksero> i joined irc just for this man
<[Ult]eksero> its been like 2 years since last time
<Appocomaster> I'm hnoured
<Appocomaster> you should win more often
<[norse]joseph[b> he try hard
<[Ult]eksero> its been a while since last time!
<[Ult]eksero> 40 rounds
<Appocomaster> feels more recently than 10 years ago, tbh
<Appocomaster> you had quite the lead - when did you realise you'd won?
<[Ult]eksero> this morning when i had no incs :D
<[Ult]eksero> i had so much value in roids
<[Ult]eksero> think about 1.6m in total
<Appocomaster> you have what, 3k more roids than anyone else?
<[Ult]eksero> something like that
<[Ult]eksero> everyone was too busy with allywin to attack me though
<Appocomaster> I don't think we've had many people breaching 8k roids in the last 40 rounds, tbh
<Appocomaster> I'll have to check
<Appocomaster> surely someone realised you had over 10% of your alliance''s roids?
<Appocomaster> once you get a 3k roid lead, you're going to win over time if you keep them
<[Ult]eksero> well i think most poeple realised TS would def me, while if they went elsewhere they'd get free lands
<Appocomaster> was your plan to pick up all the roids at the start of the round? or just a lucky coincidence?
<Appocomaster> just interested in how much was strategy and how much was not
<[Ult]eksero> just lucky! i started out the round by beeing on holiday in the us for 2 weeks, so i logged in twice a day to send attack and check landings
<[Ult]eksero> but then i landed every attack, and didnt get incs, so became fat very quickly
<Appocomaster> I'll generate stats later but I guess you haven't lost many roids
<Appocomaster> :p
<[Ult]eksero> around 3k i think in total
<[Ult]eksero> carn roided me with some big fi waves around tick 800
<Appocomaster> any key points before you strolled onto yor win? :p
<[Ult]eksero> not really tbh, TS did well with politics, didnt get much incs until the later stages of the round
<[Ult]eksero> my gal died horribly though, as they were part of the block wars
<Appocomaster> and for general benefit, was it a personal deal with TS?
<[Ult]eksero> but they all supported me once i had a chance to win
<[Ult]eksero> what do you mean .d
<Appocomaster> nm :)
<Appocomaster> was it part of the official alliance to cover you particularly?
<Appocomaster> (between Ult and TS)
<[Ult]eksero> only in the last week or so, ult i think sent me def once
<Appocomaster> anyone you'd like to thank apart from TS?
<[Ult]eksero> of course!
<[Ult]eksero> my gal ofc! venox, knight, murf, swainey, nolex, pan, DZ and anakyn, and also dza, inori
<[Ult]eksero> delgado for dcing me
<[Ult]eksero> and ofc all the people in TS, MQ, greg, blue esper etc!
<Appocomaster> :)
<Appocomaster> thank you
<Appocomaster> and now, will ask Joseph
<[norse]joseph[b> hi
<Appocomaster> Joseph - congrats on getting second. was it hard to compete with someone you were allied with?
<[norse]joseph[b> well, tbh entire universe already expected eksero to win
<[norse]joseph[b> so nothing new
<[norse]joseph[b> the fight was always for second place
<Appocomaster> well, you won that fight :p
<Appocomaster> do you think race choice or alliance politics wasa bigger impact?
<Appocomaster> or something else?
<[norse]joseph[b> more about the game getting balanced, with more roids around the universe
<[norse]joseph[b> so value play works, xp also.
<Appocomaster> 4 of the top 10 xp players were actual top 10
<Appocomaster> anyone you want to thank? :)
<Appocomaster> or you think that killer would want to?
<[norse]joseph[b> probably same ppl, obviously brazil crew, always a pleasure have u idling here... also greatful in norse, ty all. and entire gal too... =)
<[norse]joseph[b> nn all
<Appocomaster> nn and thanks
<Appocomaster> well, thanks to the top 3 (2?) :)
<Appocomaster> oh sure now he comes
<[norse]joseph[b> aoo Killer_man
<[norse]joseph[b> hahahaah cabulosooooo
<Appocomaster> Killer_man: quickly
<[norse]joseph[b> ganhamos seu corno
<Appocomaster> congrats on being third
<Appocomaster> is there anyone you want to thank?
<Appocomaster> say now or forever hold your peace
<Killer_man> Thanks
<Appocomaster> you're welcome
<Appocomaster> if there's nothing else, we're moving onto the galaxy now
<Killer_man> Yes.
<Killer_man> This round was different for our alliance, a little defense in ally, I would like to thank my alliance partners and especially JPH for the friendship and support for the third place
<[norse]joseph[b> haha mano, para de falar merda
<[norse]joseph[b> gastou quanto tempo no google tradutor? nerd
<[norse]joseph[b> cashy u are hero!
<Appocomaster> thanks :)
<Appocomaster> okay, we have to move on now guys
<Appocomaster> but thanks all
<Appocomaster> moving on to top galaxy
<Appocomaster> 6:6 one by a fair margin
<[1up]TeK> Yah... that last tick was tough
<[1up]TeK> Bigfoot isn’t gal
<Appocomaster> I know :p
<[1up]TeK> Jungle muffin is
<zagaveg> Wooo
<[ND]bankeris> he miss clicked on me :D
<Appocomaster> benneh left agian
<zagaveg> Cousin did not exile?
<[1up]TeK> Benneh doesn’t talk much
<Appocomaster> I think I got all of you who are here now
<[1up]TeK> Few words each day
<Appocomaster> he does sometimes!
<Appocomaster> well, congrats
<Appocomaster> why was the last tick so tough, TeK? :P
<zagaveg> Thnks
<zagaveg> For his own prank
<[1up]TeK> Cause the Brazil’s escorted like crazy last two weeks.
<[1up]TeK> Poor butcher
<zagaveg> Gwi was done tick 50 or so :))
<[1up]TeK> But gal win it is !
<[ND]bankeris> tek went emo :D and left gal chan 3 days ago!
<[1up]TeK> More like 5 days ago
<Appocomaster> oh dear
<[1up]TeK> But Bankeris was the cousin that set it up the g win
<zagaveg> We had 2 gal chans
<Appocomaster> actually, third place for the galaxy stuff was pretty close, 91,91,91,90,89, etc
<Appocomaster> only your gal and 4:6 which were off a bit
<Appocomaster> zagaveg: why 2 gal chans?
<Appocomaster> keep the newbs out? :P
<zagaveg> Keep emo out
<[ND]bankeris> they did not trusted me :F
<Appocomaster> oh dear
<zagaveg> We had 10 mil lead and some people think we can loose this lol
<Appocomaster> well, you still made it
<zagaveg> He hoped he gets closed or self.exile :))
<zagaveg> But he made it
<[1up]TeK> Cause this game is all about backstabbing, deal breaking and escorts !
<[1up]TeK> So after Xoca last round you never know!
<[ND]bankeris> i had to change password and send screenshot for a q reward :D lol
<Appocomaster> :)
<[1up]TeK> Yah Bankeris had to make a password Cardi wouldn’t guess
<[1up]TeK> Once jungle is done arguing with Kheros
<[1up]TeK> He will talk about the gal win
<zagaveg> Probably if we are to get same gal again we will even have higher margin , you just can't have these players in one gal
<Appocomaster> too much concentrated goodness?
<[1up]TeK> Well you had the obvious block war...
<zagaveg> We had like 5 planets fighting to pwin :))
<[1up]TeK> Incs came on 2 planets or 1 planet
<[1up]TeK> 4 in gal ziks with rogues to def
<[1up]TeK> Kept roids in gal, so margins grew, while other gals couldn’t hold it
<[1up]TeK> V moonless please
<zagaveg> Yeah he crashed deff me
<[ND]bankeris> wuhu he made it
<zagaveg> Also JM crashed deff me
<Appocomaster> that was nice
<zagaveg> All was in vain
<[Stellar]Jungle> I'd like to give a shoutout to Colt, Benneh and Moonless as part of the zik crew, the selflessness those boys showed and their willingness to sacrifice their own planet rank went a long way to helping us achieve this win.
<Appocomaster> morning moonless
<moonless> Morning
<Appocomaster> came in just to be thanked :P
<moonless> Haha yeah seems so 😂
<zagaveg> Good he showed up :))
<Appocomaster> who was the original crew?
<zagaveg> We called him one day four hours to get him on still he crashed :))
<Appocomaster> I guess you were planning to win from day 1?
<[ND]bankeris> probably after 9 and 10 got exile in
<[1up]TeK> Nope, we didn’t fill bp till a few hours before start.
<Appocomaster> so almost luck :p
<[1up]TeK> And after the randoms, we didn’t have to exile anyone. So it fell into place from there. First few nights we were biggest roid loss then followed up with biggest gains.
<[1up]TeK> Well if you ask a few people it’s cause they were on vacation and someone had to step up.
<[1up]TeK> So they “let” us have gal win.
<Appocomaster> sure
<[1up]TeK> So this one is for them !
<zagaveg> Arrange same gal again
<zagaveg> We do 20 mil margin :))
<[ND]bankeris> +v Aracknid
<[1up]TeK> Zaga is a back to back winner!
<Appocomaster> any final words?
<[TS]Delgado> YO AGAR3S I DID IT!!!!!!!!
<[Stellar]Jungle> I'd also like to thank Stellar dor being so understanding of the amount I was prioritising def to gal. I'd spexifically like to thank Wendy for her awesomeneas and the huge amount of works she puts in, and also Dekker for work he did with pols this round, ot was awesome, cheers guys.
<zagaveg> I'd like to thank to gal for deffwhoring me :)
<[1up]TeK> Colt wants to thank 7seas
<[ND]bankeris> I want to say big thanks for few ND members: 4MOTION, Ony and Paragon for every help and work they made for Ally. Also big thanks for [Stellar]Jungle makeing this gwin happening
<zagaveg> JM colr Benneh
<zagaveg> Also for crashing deff me
<Appocomaster> lol
<zagaveg> Special thanks to Carnage Prisco Ave
<[1up]TeK> And Benneh wants to call him a bad word
<zagaveg> Great guys!
<[TS]Delgado> i would like to thank TS for inviting me into HC this round with them and for the people i brought there with me good job like Eksero and Arty The Orginal Bp was Colt Benneh Tek Mista Me but Mista had Watched to much Narnia so i called a OLD FRIEND UP AKA JUNGLE MUFFIN to come join the bp and the rest was just good ol luck
<[Stellar]Jungle> I'd also like to thank the gal as a whole for working through the tough times that we all had, and all buying in to deffing so much. Great job guys.
<Appocomaster> that's a lot of thank yous :)
<Appocomaster> okay, well, we're finishing up there
<Appocomaster> but thanks all
<[TS]Delgado> CARTEL WHACKED THE DONS!!!!
<zagaveg> :))
<[1up]TeK> Congrats to sheen ( Rhorry ) on the birth of his beautiful daughter !
<moonless> Those WA logs make an amazing read
<Appocomaster> lol
<Appocomaster> (congrats sheen)
<Appocomaster> now finally, to the winning alliance
<[ult]Xerxess> o/
<Appocomaster> Ultores (renamed for this round)
<[ult]Xerxess> whoop
<Appocomaster> back after last round's 6th place
<Appocomaster> congrats
<[ult]Xerxess> before you start asking questions appocco, can I just ask you.... how on earth did we win this round ?
<Appocomaster> (though you did win 78 & 75)
<Appocomaster> well, I wasn't paying attention a lot of the round
<[Ult]agar3s> we we're 5th earlier today
<[ult]Xerxess> [3/1, 19:26] Dogg: Dont forget xerx not loggin in for 4 days once we was worried
<[Ult]agar3s> were*
<[ult]Xerxess> me neither, appocco
<Appocomaster> forgot to accidentally co-ordinate all the attack on you
<[ult]Xerxess> ye, you did
<[Ult]agar3s> isnt that ace his job?
<Appocomaster> haha
<Appocomaster> well, you are her now
<Appocomaster> *here
<[ult]Xerxess> well, since we won with XP this time - I guess you will finally nerf XP... since PA team keep changing the game to the disadvantage of ult
<[ult]Xerxess> anyway
<Appocomaster> I thought we nerfed xp last round
<[ult]Xerxess> no, you didn't
<[ult]Xerxess> that nerf only stoped someone from signing up last week and win planet with XP
<[Ult]agar3s> dont be so salty
<[Ult]agar3s> jeez
<[ult]Xerxess> anyway, we were gonna have a chill round and just attack ND all round because they have been (banned word) for a few rounds
<[Ult]agar3s> lets talk about heresy instead
<[ult]Xerxess> HAHAHA
<[ult]Xerxess> I'll get to them, 2 secs
<Appocomaster> who is doing the explaining here? :P Xerxess I guess
<[ult]Xerxess> so we were hitting ND (with some DLR mixed in from time to time) and minding our own business when last week we realised, wtf!?! we can win
<[Ult]agar3s> yeah he wrote this all down before
<[Ult]agar3s> he needed to do something productive at work
<[ult]Xerxess> and you say I am salty? :p
<Appocomaster> I miss those sorts of days
<[Ult]agar3s> nah you are the sweettooth
<Appocomaster> hey hey
<Appocomaster> you can get a room later, both of you :p
<[ult]Xerxess> anyway
<[ult]Xerxess> so then we just continues to idle for 5 more days, and we kept getting fat
<[ult]Xerxess> I think we were on track to win with roids when Heresy back-stabbed us 2 days agoo
<Appocomaster> yes, your roids are certainly not as big as some of your competitors tbh
<[ult]Xerxess> ND, pingu, DLR were gonna hit us - but I think we could have covered that, but with heresy and quite a bit of value in CR - there was no chance to cover that since we had no value in def ships and we had really no discipline this round so our fleets were a joke
<[ult]Xerxess> so then we bled a lot
<[ult]Xerxess> now, we had a deal with Heresy to tick 750, it was extended to eor
<[ult]Xerxess> and now they claimed the deal ended at tick 1k... which is hilarious, tick 1k was never ever mentioned
<[ult]Xerxess> it's just some BS because they tried to hand the win to canage
<Appocomaster> https://game.planetarion.com/univer...ed.pl?rn=570869
<Appocomaster> what is really interesting
* [Ult]agar3s hands xerx a pancake
<Appocomaster> lots of planet ranking jumps
<[ult]Xerxess> well, that didnt work out too well - because while we bled a lot 2 days agoo, we just landed for free on Heresy today instead, which gave us a lot of xp
<Appocomaster> I think a fair few are ult
<Appocomaster> ^ from that
<[ult]Xerxess> yes, agar3s TAed us last day
<[ult]Xerxess> we landed for 18 million score in one tick
<[ult]Xerxess> (so can we pleeeeeeeeease nerf xp now? )
<Appocomaster> we'll see :P
<Appocomaster> kinda exciting
<[Ult]agar3s> and make xan cloaked
<Appocomaster> that it was open till so late
<[ult]Xerxess> real kudos to agar3s, he spent hours figuring out how to max out XP
<[Ult]agar3s> xan is like some worse version of etd now
<[ult]Xerxess> anyway, the fact that Heresy is soooo shitty helped ofc
<Appocomaster> anyone still have the leshy images?
<[Ult]Bazza> I like etd
<[ult]Xerxess> I honestly think they dont know what DCing is
<Appocomaster> the "calcing" planetarion face of his seems appropriate now
<[ult]Xerxess> so basicly, we won by agar3s playing for 3 days
<[ult]Xerxess> thx to XP
<[ult]Xerxess> and thx to the Heresy backstab
<Appocomaster> well, congrats
<[Ult]Bazza> I'd like to thank our awesome scanners Xyphistor & Keara as the importance of scanners often gets overlooked. Also thanks to all our members and especially Dogg & DG for helping me do attacks
<[ult]Xerxess> Also, a shout out to all the traitors leaving ult to play for rank in Faceless
<[ult]Xerxess> Wolf, winY, dorf, etc
<[ult]Xerxess> just because we were chilling :D
<[ult]Xerxess> well, that worked out like a charm
<[ult]Xerxess> Oh, Knight as well
<[Ult]agar3s> eksero too!
<[Ult]agar3s> :D
<[ult]Xerxess> we seem to win every round Knight goes to another ally
<Appocomaster> well, nice to see a different playing round
<Appocomaster> haha
<[Ult]Bazza> lol
<[Ult]agar3s> dont you normally ask questions Appocomaster, all i see is xerx telling his life story
<Appocomaster> [Ult]agar3s: did you find any of the round interesting?
<[ult]Xerxess> also, a BIIIG shout out to Hobster and xicot for giving up their chance at winning planet so we could focus on ally win
<[ult]Xerxess> this is what ultores is all about
<[Ult]agar3s> i logged in twice a day for most of it
<[Ult]agar3s> in general the round went as planned
<[Ult]agar3s> we wanted to hit nd and we did for nearly the whole round
<[Ult]agar3s> made some deals in the process to make us fat
<[ult]Xerxess> yes
<[Ult]agar3s> and that allowed us to get in a position to win with near to no effort
<[ult]Xerxess> next up is Heresy - their backstabbing this round shall not be forgotten
<Appocomaster> well, glad you're coming back to play next round, th en :)
<Appocomaster> any final words of thanks?
<[Ult]agar3s> haha we will do the same
<[ult]Xerxess> Heresy will die next round
<[Ult]agar3s> hit a tag pretty much all round
<[ult]Xerxess> and thx to Heresy for all the free XP
<[Ult]agar3s> and heresy begged it to be them
<[Ult]agar3s> so i guess this is ult saying heresy will burn
<[Ult]Bazza> I'd like to finish by quoting gm
<[Ult]Bazza> <[CT]gm> you cant win if ultores are left alone
<[Ult]Bazza> <[CT]gm> they are by far the best allaince in terms of skill and it requires a lot of politics to stop them winning
<[ult]Xerxess> word
<[Ult]agar3s> and i would like to thank all my members and my co hc
<[ult]Xerxess> for once, I wont be spamming top 10 defenders this round
<[Ult]agar3s> for doing an excellent job as always
<[ult]Xerxess> because well, we didnt defend :D
<[Ult]agar3s> and i would like to thank [Ult]eksero for getting ult the planet win
<[Ult]agar3s> and [TS]Delgado for pretending to be TS
<[Ult]agar3s> its hard to win planet in ult
<[Ult]agar3s> oh btw appo, did any tag ever get 18m in a tick?
<Appocomaster> I don't think we track that
<Appocomaster> sorry
