Is that the best incentive for orders for forum battles so far? Perhaps.

I had a good chuckle at the fun police failures.

Congratulations to ninja_bait and Kommander Ken for winning this battle. I expected it to last for one more turn, but the first two teams just killed everyone else. The cannon would have been fun.

How did you like my first forum battle?
Was the cell pone photography too crappy?
How did you like the teams?
Was the initiative system ok?

Everything worked out pretty great. I knew grabbing the train was the right idea.

Photography is decent, teams were plenty rounded, and the initiative idea helped get our orders in faster. Overall a good battle. :tiger:
