SW-AM/288
« on: June 30, 2017, 01:31:16 PM »

Just finished this slow anonymous multi game.  Any other players want to discuss? Just saw that Craig was in the game, so figured I'd post here as I don't have anyone's email address.

Even though I won as Merchant/Berserker/Apostle, it was tough scoring. Low pop and mines really limited all characters. Plus I had 2 players attacking (more like nibbling my fringes) me at the same time. It was annoying as I didn't want to use ships for defense/war rather than berserker/apostle scoring. I actually had just run out of worlds on the last turn to get kill points for the apostle and would've only killed about 100 pop on someone else's world.

A higher VP end score and Gayle likely would've beat me.

Looks like there is a new bug in the system -- used to be you could preview and post a message, now preview followed by post deletes your message and posts a blank post.

Anyway, I wasn't in this game, but wonder if Jack Fulmer was; I played a multi anon (non-BE) expecting him to be in it.    He went to war against me (he being a M/P/B, as was clear from his articles on SW), I also a M/P/B.    He went to war against me and did slightly better (mainly because I lost 100 ships or so to an unexpected ambush, but came in last in the standings (perhaps a first for him).    I considered the game a success, since I finished a higher place them him, foiled his signature attack, and timed the game perfectly in helping a M/B/A win and end the game.   In
the end=game, Fulmer was able to swarm and capture worlds in one of my position's territories -- I allowed this to concentrate on gaining points in the rest of my territory; Fulmer found the game most enjoyable despite coming in dead last because he was able to grab the territory.

If Fulmer has quit playing, I might try another game is a M/P/B.     Two of these players in a game,
though, may be too much.

Not previewing this message, or risking a spell check (my spelling is pretty good, though.)

Nope, Jack was not in this one.

There were two other MPBs in the game that came in 4 and 5. One of them was attacking my Apostle position with Berserker robot attacks.

Yes, I was in that game. Didn't do too well, so I'm trying again in a new game.

Paul,

Did you consider the robot attacks by your opponent on your apostle position actually
beneficial to your goals?

Lin,

No, the aggressors killing my apostle converts didn't do me any good as I was on a jihad. They were chewing up converts and taking worlds from me. No benefits there.
