EoRC Round 87 12/07/2020

<Appocomaster> Good evening, everyone
<Appocomaster> and welcome to Round 87 - Isolation's End of Round Ceremony
<Appocomaster> We will be meeting with the top planets, alliance and galaxy tonight
<Appocomaster> to hear their thoughts on the round
<Appocomaster> as announced ingame
<Appocomaster> the stats will unfortunately not be available until tomorrow, apart from the standard top ranking stats
<Appocomaster> now, unfortunately, we have had some fake nickning going on
<Appocomaster> but I will attempt to voice the top 3 planets :p
<[DLR]Goat> thank you my man
<[App]cocteau> Hello again Appoco
<Appocomaster> sorry, "its like tomas"
<[App]cocteau> im back in my usual 2-3 rounds every 2 years
<[DLR]Xomaz> Hmm im voiced?
<Appocomaster> okay
<Appocomaster> well
<Appocomaster> 2/3 wasn't bad
<Appocomaster> maybe second place won't be turning up :
<Appocomaster> anyway, congratulations, [DLR]Goat
<[App]cocteau> I was just speaking to Tomas in whatsapp an hour ago, he indeed said he's 50-50 in attendig
<Appocomaster> thanks
<Appocomaster> clearly I misunderstood the excitement people may have on being here
<[App]cocteau> hi goat!! Congrats!
<Appocomaster> so, Goat, congrats on the win - you've managed to keep other DLR people at bay
<Appocomaster> (non-DLR top players are also available)
<Appocomaster> did you always feel you were going to be the winner this last week?
<Appocomaster> a fairly big score jump surely helped you cement that win
<[DLR]Goat> well, the rest of DLR are slothslothgo users, and are shit
<[DLR]Goat> i am the mighty google employee
<Appocomaster> it seems to have made a difference
<[DLR]Goat> but they are good people
<[DLR]Goat> just misguided
<Appocomaster> you were basically only the only 2 terrans in the top 20 - did racechoicemake a difference?
<[DLR]Goat> prone to falling for national socialist party leaders... any interesting question you pose
<[DLR]Goat> Terran master race ofc
<Appocomaster> sigh
<Appocomaster> so
<Appocomaster> apparently, 1/3
<[DLR]Goat> :)
<[DLR]itsgoat> hehe
<[App]cocteau> haha
<[DLR]itsgoat> Nice one budious, the irony of you stealing MY identity is not lost on me
<Appocomaster> honestly, if you just use simple nicknames in game and don't mess around
<Appocomaster> this gets a lot easier :p
<Appocomaster> so, itsgoat, congrats, and
<[DLR]itsgoat> what is more simple that a 4 letter name?
<Appocomaster> keeping your ally mate from stealing it :p
<Appocomaster> did you feel you would win comfortably, and, race strategy ^
<[DLR]itsgoat> I honestly didnt feel I had a real chance until probably last Sunday night
<Appocomaster> when you got #1
<Appocomaster> for the ... first time?
<[DLR]itsgoat> I was consisently hanging around the top5 for a while, but it started to look promising with only a few days left and some of the guys noticed too and wanted to help
<Appocomaster> I guess DLR weren't in the top couple of alliances
<[DLR]itsgoat> that was never the idea no matter what anyone wants to believe
<[DLR]itsgoat> I commend Grog for sticking to his plan and ignoring the 5 million NAP requests throughout the round
<Appocomaster> did alliance strategy help you get to the top?
<[DLR]itsgoat> of course
<[DLR]itsgoat> 3 fleeting every single night
<Appocomaster> ah, typical DLR tactic
<Appocomaster> :p
<[DLR]itsgoat> well recently anyway
<Appocomaster> who were your biggest threats?
<[DLR]itsgoat> I still need to give credit to guys like zebra my attack partner all round, and guys from my BG like Xomaz, Religfree, Mek, rad, etc who wanted to help at the end
<[DLR]itsgoat> threats?
<Appocomaster> to win
<[DLR]itsgoat> what threats, I was #1 in roids capped and roids lost
<[DLR]itsgoat> only real threat was carbone, I knew Zwan's SIM army would screw it up
<Appocomaster> the site going down is not great for this eorc :p expect some time outs
<Appocomaster> (dns issues, outside of our control)
<Appocomaster> anyway, going on
<Appocomaster> any highlight of the round? apart from this clearly epic EORC :p
<[DLR]itsgoat> Zwan fcing himself was a nice highlight
<[DLR]itsgoat> and probably the troll rant on p3n
<Appocomaster> honestly, fcing never gets old
<[DLR]itsgoat> sorry p3ns
<Appocomaster> anything else?
<Appocomaster> any other thanks?
<Appocomaster> otherwise, we will see if we still have its
<[DLR]itsgoat> oh one last guy to thank
<[DLR]itsgoat> eksero, some of his pilots died, but it was a sacrefice I was willing to make
<Appocomaster> http://146.185.135.215
<Appocomaster> for those whoare triyng to logback in
<Appocomaster> okay, thanks [DLR]itsgoat
<Appocomaster> will move on
<Appocomaster> congrats on second,its, and thanks for attending :p
<Appocomaster> do you feel beaten by your alliancemate?
* Appocomaster pokes liketomaspal
<Appocomaster> we lost cocteau
<Appocomaster> okay
<Appocomaster> movingon then
<Appocomaster> congrats to the top planets :p
<Appocomaster> let's see who ishere from 4:7
<[THC]iBorg|mob> I am
<[THC]iBorg|mob> Hi
<Appocomaster> hi
<Appocomaster> and congrats
<Appocomaster> I can't see anyone else on at the moment?
<[THC]iBorg|mob> Thanks
<[THC]Crowsnek> also here o/
<Appocomaster> oh, missed someone :p
<Blue_Esper_> How
<Appocomaster> I don't know
<[THC]iBorg|mob> I want to thank all members of 4.7 for helping to win gal. That was our plan when we set up the BP making sure we were all in different alliances so we could def soak ourselves individually. It was a bonus to get good active players (Coops & Crowsnek) at shuffle plus Tuck exiling in later. It was a bit worrying that the gal turned into a THC fort and all the incoming that came with that title but the lack of incs on App
<[THC]iBorg|mob> helped keep the value up despite Zwan and Blue_Esper_ doing their best to ruin galwin by crashing but we were never really in doubt about winning, holding #1 spot since day two I think.
<Blue_Esper_> It was very close all round had like 3 or 4 gals biting at our heels
<Appocomaster> it's been a long time
<Appocomaster> you've been #1 certainly for almost all of the last 4 weeks
<Appocomaster> pretty consistent
<[THC]iBorg|mob> We finally got Blue_Esper_ galwin after all his 2nd places
<Appocomaster> how did you win by so little?
<[THC]iBorg|mob> 2.5m isn’t little is it?
<Blue_Esper_> We shipped roids last week trying to save zwan gor pain
<Blue_Esper_> But the gals that came close just kept getting fc by purge
<Appocomaster> I guess all things considered, I half expected something bigger considering the length of time you've been first
<Appocomaster> I mean, the crashes didn't help :p
<[THC]iBorg|mob> THC members in the gal were constantly being roided
<Blue_Esper_> Mine were small crashes. Zwan was like 1mil which killed his pwin
<Appocomaster> yeah, 15th for rank
<Appocomaster> for roids
<[THC]iBorg|mob> We tried to keep value up
<[THC]iBorg|mob> I’m not an xp fan
<Appocomaster> well, that won it
<[THC]Crowsnek> We just kept doing what got us to the #1 spot in the first place
<Blue_Esper_> For 90% of round hone and me were able to cover our inc. Then final week def went out the windows as attacking was the only way we could stay ahead
<Appocomaster> well, congrats
<Appocomaster> how did the galaxy sizes work out?
<[THC]iBorg|mob> Great
<Blue_Esper_> Thsnks to oddr and cba for being so selflesd
<[THC]iBorg|mob> Happy with small numbers
<Blue_Esper_> Gal size was good. Smaller is better for small tag rsiding
<Appocomaster> wb [App]cocteau
<[THC]iBorg|mob> Gal is usually so dependant on who comes in at shuffle
<[THC]iBorg|mob> So it’s nice we got 2 active people in at shuffle
<Appocomaster> it's hard - bigger bps is great to have more friends, but smaller bps mean more galaxies, more dynamic play, etc
<[THC]iBorg|mob> And then Tuck exiling in helped also
<[THC]iBorg|mob> Yes small gals are best
<Appocomaster> wb everyone
<Appocomaster> any final thanks?
<Blue_Esper_> Capping gal's at 8 is great for competition
<Appocomaster> it's nota cap
<Appocomaster> *not a
<Appocomaster> it will never be a cap
<Blue_Esper_> Well no one has more than 8
<Appocomaster> just luck of the shuffle et
<Blue_Esper_> Thanks to zwan he organised bp
<[THC]iBorg|mob> Congrats App for winning ally
<Blue_Esper_> He cared the most
<[THC]iBorg|mob> He did yes
<[THC]iBorg|mob> As he was up for pwin for a while
<Blue_Esper_> Thanks to hone for dcing
<Appocomaster> :)
<Appocomaster> thanks all
<[THC]iBorg|mob> Ty
<Appocomaster> okay, wb #3 planet
<Appocomaster> congrats again on #3
<Appocomaster> anything you wanted to say in terms of specific thanks?
<[App]cocteau> Thanks to my alliance Apprime of course
<Appocomaster> you looked like you were in a strong third place but not really threatening the top 2
<[App]cocteau> my galaxy, notably Gizmo and Coala.
<[App]cocteau> Yeah i wasn't really playing for ranks, im just active.
<[App]cocteau> Plus my usual Timezone advantage
<[App]cocteau> i am surprised tot isnt bad playing value
<[App]cocteau> I play for tag as per usual, score just happens.
<Appocomaster> you must have got lucky
<[App]cocteau> Yes and No. Because i kind of have to do well. If Apprime is a soccer team, i take the lion share of the salary cap, i have to perform to make it worth it. :)
<Appocomaster> well, looks like you deservedit
<[App]cocteau> I played my usual build, not going for Refs - why i always have amps more than other value planet.
<[App]cocteau> I am surprised DLR didn't take t1-t5
<Appocomaster> well, no one is perfect, apparently
<[App]cocteau> Their strat has the potential to do so.
<Appocomaster> well, they need more players
<[App]cocteau> That's about it for me. Also would like to thank my retired Untouchables friends. We're scattered, mostly go random. But we help each other.
<Appocomaster> :)
<[App]cocteau> Mainly thanking my Apprime members.
<Appocomaster> okay, well, I will leave you up because apparently you're also representing the winning alliance, Apprime
<Appocomaster> so, congrats to Apprime
<[App]cocteau> I thought i am with Spiderpig and Sim31
<[App]cocteau> Thanks! We were really good this round
<[App]cocteau> We were top avg PT 30
<[App]cocteau> That' when we though we're really badass in attacking, that's when we were' 35ish members
<Appocomaster> well, they are not here :p
<Appocomaster> was the round tactic to add people through the round?
<Appocomaster> it has been obviously noted
<[App]cocteau> Well believe it or not, Sandvold strat of FICO (with 20% FR) turns out the best.
<[App]cocteau> We were initially wanting to jsut attack.
<[App]cocteau> I tried defending some incs, one thing led to another.
<[App]cocteau> We were covering 70ish random incs a day with our build, so we go back being traditional. But still leaning more attack oriented.
<Appocomaster> "one thing led to another" "we won the round
<Appocomaster> brb
<[App]cocteau> Haha, yeah. Mid round we made a DC chan. Then we start to cover really well.
<[App]cocteau> When DLR warred us and arrived solo, we lost a whooing -2%
<[App]cocteau> When gangbang arrives, we have acceptable losses against 250 fleet incs, more or less 18-22%
<Appocomaster> sorry, teething babt
<Appocomaster> *baby
<Appocomaster> that's crazy
<Appocomaster> good numbers ^
<[App]cocteau> Yeah for a 45 man tag
<[App]cocteau> Members really showed up.
<[App]cocteau> Can i say the usual thanks Appo? Unless yu have questions.
<Appocomaster> yeah
<Appocomaster> no more questions
<Appocomaster> go ahead with the thanks
<Appocomaster> sorry, this has been a slightly disjointed eorc
<[App]cocteau> All members, you all pushed yourself and made extra effort to get this win! This is for you and you deserve it Apprime members.
<[App]cocteau> HC - Cardi our Fuhrer, Joseph, Zwan and Sandvold DC Team (non HC) - Yarden, Kvakzo, Greytonic, vex Top def planets : cyzzy, Phantasm, stojke, Gallz, f1nch, Sere, Synapse, burmel
<[App]cocteau> I would like to take this opportunity to say that Apprime is open for recruitment.
<[App]cocteau> Only quality and Ally first type of members are allowed. We have a few members who will go back to their hole. We have around 20ish short of being a full tag. For recruitment, pm Buffy and TeK for interview.
<[App]cocteau> Thanks to THC for being should i dare say 'mischievous' on their approach. Thanks for ZT for trying to avoid wars, it always backfires when someone do that. For those mistakes, we managed to saw the opening in taking the win (which up to 3/4 of the round, we refuse to accept we're playing to win)
<[App]cocteau> Thats all Appoco. :)
<Appocomaster> you're welcome
<Appocomaster> and congrats again
<Appocomaster> and now it's time for the allcomp!
<Appocomaster> for those who managed to cope
<Appocomaster> and stay around
