Let The Games Begin Sign-up

Postby Colette » Sun Apr 15, 2012 5:36 pm

Important Note, Read Before Continuing:
Due to the size of this battle, there are certain problems that have a statistically significant chance of happening, but due to the potential awesome I will disregard those dangers for now. We don’t have to worry about the battle getting stepped on because it’s LDD; however the file is nearly 17000 pieces big, saving takes a full 45 sec.-1 min. For one, expect relatively large delays between turns. There’s lot’s of lag for moving pieces and I expect there to be lot’s of carnage during the battle. Second, there’s a good chance it will simply be too much for my computer and it will be forced to be baleeted. By signing up you accept all these risks and won’t bitch if any of them happen. Pray to the dice-gods for fortune, and if you’ve reached this sentence, then remember, together we pwn!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Danedal. When the Praetorians found the planet shortly after arriving to our galaxy, they jeered at its utter uselessness-no life, no resources, just a strange gaseous purple atmosphere and a frozen hell below. Nobody would care.

Image
Fortunately, wars raged on elsewhere in the galaxy, and the Praetorians realized no planet could be wasted. So they began a primitive shipyard. It churned out fighters and frigates around the clock.

Soon enough, it evolved through the ages...

Image
Today, the Danedalian shipyards is the main producer of battleships and mega-carriers for this sector of Praetoria. Defended by no less than 13 battleships and 4 mega-carriers, it has recently received defense fleets from Trattoria, USA, MASS, and Zupponn Mining Co.

Image
As ordered by the delegation of Luchardsko in the Third Alliance, they have sent a fleet of ships to strike back at the AN for damaging the RIN’s RT asteroids. The Scythians have also joined to revenge the death of Captain Conor Kole and his crew. But most importantly, the Briktoid Automata has provided the jewel of the fleet, the Grond of the Third Alliance, the Conifer-class super-dreadnought.

FACTIONS

Praetorian Shipyards
Image
The Praetorians are determined not lose their valuable shipyards to the Third Alliance. Includes the yards and the fleet except for the mega-carriers.

Praetorian Carriers and Fighters: darkpaladin
2XImage
The Praetorian carriers will back up their battleship friends. Each carrier has 6 fighters in its holds.

Trattorians: Ex_Bajir
Image
Sent to the Praetorians before Siri’s coup, these Trattorians are almost as loyal to Praetoria as the Praetorians themselves. They are cautious about shooting the Scythians and thereby worsening the diplomatic situation, however.

USA: Stormblessed
Image
The USA. With giant OTCs. ‘Nuff said.

MASS
2XImage
The MASS, while one of the smaller players, can still make a different with their 6 cruisers. Here’s to hoping they are as effective as they are in Winter Has Arrived.

Zupponn Mining Co.: Zupponn
Image
The Zupponn Mining Co. have been paid to provide further defenses to the Praetorian positions.

Scythians: lrdofbriks
2XImage
The Scythian Empire is one of the biggest factions on the board, with 4 Monarch butterfl... I mean battleships and 2 Emperors.

Briktoid Automata: badagle
Image
Conifer-class. Be afraid.

Bavaria: Silverdream
Image
Kind of hard to get an overview, but Bavarian ships are the blue ones surrounding the Conifer.

RIN
Image
I must say, the RIN looks very impressive all lined up like that. I would recommend designing bigger ships though, they’re all very small compared to the behemoths shooting at each other in this battle.

Avalonians: Semaj Nagirrac
2XImage
The Avalonians are one of the two smallest factions on the board. Will they be able to pwn the Praetorians like they do in Winter Has Arrived?

Akkadians: tymon555
Image
The Akkadians are a bit reluctant to get involved in the whole AN-TA war, but have regardless sent a token fleet to help the war effort.

Secret Faction A: Falk


Let the games...

There was a saying in the Art of War about letting everyone kill each other first or something like that...I could imagine the Conifers/Emperors and the Praetorian/Trattorian battleships pounding each other while your tiny frigates are ignored and ultimately survive. :lol:

Quite a few people are into micro and squad tactics rather than macro and fleet tactics. It's also less pressure.

Yes, I got Briktoid Automata!

Now a little role-playing to set the mood...

Image

The Briktoid Automata's Contingent Commanding Program, IR2C00l, stared dispassionately at the large tactical display through the optics of an Astromek shell and metaphorically sighed.

It had been sent to assist their Third Alliance clients in strike on an enemy shipyard with only its prized ship-shell, the Confier-class BAS-N00bcrush3r, in Annihilation Escort configuration and four Quadfighters.
Normally such equipment would adequate for long-ranged harrassment and ambush tactics, but orders had them flying right in the middle of the Organics fleet...

Image

...It wouldn't be suprising if every gun the enemy had opened up on the N00bcrush3r out of sheer terror as soon as it was sighted.

Of course, what should one expect when they Tea-bag a superior in a game of Counter Duty 1954?

LOL that would be my reaction if I were a ship captain and I saw that thing.

I wonder if there is such a thing as redshirting in space, I mean the N00bcrush3r has like dozens of capital ships escorting it so they would be doing something I guess.

@stormblessed: Simple, build an army, and then you own that faction. I doubt you have an army large enough to necessitate being owned by multiple people (i.e Brittannian league).

@Silverdream: Of course, just imagine some n00b accidentally smashing two Scythian battleships into each other or like chain-reactioning the hell out of the row of Praetorian battleships.

I have a pretty ghetto way of starting weapons:

Levers are automatically small weapons. For the Conifer in particular, all the telescope guns are large lasers, Guns with 2x2 black cone bases are massive, the one in the center is a super weapon, and everything else is medium.
