*Dome@Z (Yellow) Omicron Hive - Adv Expansion, Adv Tactical, Adv Supremacy
v
Spideycw@XEXY (Blue) Iron Coalition - Tac, Drydock

Settings: High-Med

Map: Star

This was an incredible game with some real quality squad game play. There is no way I will be able to remember everything so think of this as the highlights:

-Both squads opened low, 9 Xexy lt ints and two scouts vs 9 Zenith fighters and two scouts. Both squads bunched their players together and slowly moved towards each other. When the formations got within 1000 meters of each other, all Zenith ships reversed thrust and lured Xexy in to attack. The opening furball was one of the better ones that I've seen. Both op cons went up and were about 1.8k from each other.

-Zenith sent second tp and op high, while Xexy took its choke with a TP. There was only one Uranium rock on the whole map, in Zenith's home, so we took it early. Xexy got a Tac low next to its home and started in on miner-o, killing two Zenith miners. Zenith was fairly successful at miner-o as well and scored some critical kills.

-Xexy bought bombers and bombed Zenith's low op and low tp, then started ripping around making Zenith scramble to d from various approaches while they mined, and Zenith could only mine with one miner. Zenith owned only one sector (high) outside of its home at this point. We focused on getting heavies up and got there relatively quickly. Zenith also tried to push a con to and bomb Xexy's choke tp but failed, lost the op con and bomber.

-Xexy got a Shipyard in its home and also took Zenith's choke with a tp. Corvettes started poking around everywhere both aggressively and defensively. Zenith massed heavy ints and swarmed corvs, killing some.

-Xexy secured the middle of the map with tps and started mining full loads out of there. In response, Zenith sent a full force bomb run and op con push to its own choke and thankfully succeeded. Zenith then had a better position for miner o, and claimed the He3 in that sector.

-Zenith got a tac up high in the sector next to its home. Xexy got its drydock up and sent a cruiser from left choke to Zenith's op/tp high and a cruiser from mid through to Zenith's choke. Zenith ALL docked, everyone got killer 1 sfs, five launched to defend high, while 7 launched to defend choke. Both cruisers were destroyed but the cruiser at choke was able to destroy the Zenith op. Xexy then went back to mining for more cruiser money and Zenith went back to mining for sbs.

-Zenith got sbs up, and sent four out to start clearing the map of tps. While that was happening Xexy got an assault ship in Zenith's tac sector and ripped in a cruiser while two more cruisers entered the sector from Zenith's choke.. Zenith had killer 2 at this point so we all scrambled to defend and shoot down nukes. Zenith successfully killed all three cruisers, leaving the Tac with a tiny sliver of hull. In the fray KingJoffrey ate a tac-bound nuke with his sf, then ate another nuke with his pod. Definitely the most clutch save I've ever seen. (All three of the cruisers had a 0 kb. If any of them with missiles that hit had even a 10kb the Tac would have been gone.) While that was happening the assault ship got into Zenith's home/exp sector and another cruiser ripped in and successfully killed Zenith's exp, but was killed before it could kill the Gar. While all of that was happening Zenith's sbs wiped Xexy's tps off the map.

-Zenith focused on taking the map then, got more miners, and snuck sbs into Xexy's tac sector. Xexy took a cruiser and a large force of nans high, so Zenith sbs attacked and just barely killed Xexy's tac low.

-Xexy continued sneaking more assault ships around and ripped in a couple cruisers right next to Zenith's high tac and destroyed it. Zenith rebuilt the tac, then got another one, and then a sup and upgraded it (ab hammer3, dis3 adv figs, etc). Zenith sbs started killing Xexy's home tps over and over. Xexy used assault ships with corvette cover to rip in bombers and kill some Zenith tps.

-Xexy sent another huge assault ship/cruiser/corve run to try to kill Zenith's second tac high, but were all podded. Zenith took the opportunity and sent all craft into Xexy's home: sbs, figs, sfs, reg bombers, everything. With coordination from sbs already set up on the drydock, the gar was destroyed and the drydock immediately after.

GREAT GAME! Allegiance at its most epic.

Not sure how you guys got stuck to two sectors and almost lost that despite having the best tech path for star. Sometimes you just get lucky though.

GG.

Interceptors are fun because without one, Drizzo would be physically incapable of entering a sector.

GG. If only Blacksun was podded. If only. Was a really fun game, and in my mind nobody truly lost. No one is out and it was an intense 2 hour and 22 minute squad game. Who could ask for more? Well played Zenith, this was a game for the ages.

A long but great game! Was good quality play on both sides! But oh man sy, what has happened to you? Not sure how you stopped 4 cruisers at once on your tac with only 15 people but very nice! Nice comming from dome and good flying from z.

P.s. my life for an exp rock lol



I'm sorry I don't remember any of it. For you the day spideycw graced your squad with utter destruction was the most important day of your life. But for me, it was Sunday

I am ashamed for all the drama I caused, I have much to learn on how to behave when things don't go my way.

My apologies.

That was an enjoyable game to watch (at least part of it, I had to leave before it ended). When I joined it looked like @XEXY had it in the bag, but it was impressive to see OH get dual adv tech with only four safe sectors to mine. I also had no idea killer2 was so effective on caps.

I didn't see any nukes being shot down on that 3 cruiser run, it looked like they got 4 nukes in but left the tac with a sliver.

I feel really responsible though, I was giving vogue @#(! during the game and I guess it really got to him, put him off his game, that's probably why you lost. I'm sorry about that @XEXY.

Looking forward to our rematch next week.

The three cruiser run on the tac was epic, especially when one of the sfs took a nuke to the cabin. Damn good game, and great write up.

cashto should've been booted and banned for his transgressions against hypervets trying to play a squad game.

lucky for him spidey has softened with old age and dome is a sociopath


QUOTE (phoenix1 @ May 5 2013, 08:35 PM) *
Vogue is clearly #1 and commanding against him feels like commanding against Spideycw at times... though he lacks that little bit of "I don't care who's on my team or what the factions are, it's going to be a stomp anyways" that Spidey managed to pull off in his heyday.

Also watching this closely you can see that we actually didn't shoot a nuke down at our tac, KingJoffrey guided his pod into it. Incredible.

And all of those crusiers had 0 kb. If either Drizzo or Vogue had even a 10kb it was game over. My god.

Looks like he ate one with his sf and one with his pod. Clutch.
