Hi guys!!

I've been trying to get into contact with my Allies but I've been having some trouble so sorry about the delay and missed turns.

I, ForceUser, as leader of the great BBV Alliance, would like to call a vote to end the game. My R/L time is getting drained and so I don't have enough time to continue the game. Also, I know when A battle is unwinnable and I will cede to a superior Player.

I vote The Conjoiners/BFT Alliance as the Winners with the Esteemed Blob/Bolariun/Vintilli Bond in a solid second place.

I will give the honour to my opponents of starting a Game History/Discussion Thread.

ForceUser, Keeper of the Way.

If the alliance were still intact, I would agree. However, seeing as our end of alliance clause that the Conjoiners have invoked is coming into effect in 2 years, Crying or Very Sad the game is still up in the air. I'm sorry if RL gets in the way for you though- we all know that that's what's really important.

I disagree. I was looking forward to fighting the whole universe against me. I was looking forward to seeing if I can hack apart enough of the universe to prolong my life before everyone kills me. I just claimed solo victory, and I'm not even in first. Surely that deserves a thorough beat down.

Well....that depends on if all major parties keep playing. Not much point if I'm the only one still in the game.

I'de like to keep going, and I think the Bolarians would too (I've been in e-mail contact with them), although I think that the Blobs are stil a major power, and their leaving would affect the ballance a large bit (not sure which way). G.E. me and ForceUser are the only responses- what do the Vinitilli or the Bolarians (directly) have to say?

Conjoiners- what say we just keep our alliance and call it a win, if enough people leave? Smile

I came in as a replacement and took the Blobs from 6th to 3rd and it was my FIRST online game. I'd like it to end in a second team rather than a total destruction af everything I've built up.

As you guys can see, I just can't keep up with you guys even if I wanted to. Work and other projects have been viing for time and I just can't pour so much more time into the game.

So no matter what the desicion, I'm not going to be able to submit more turns.

Poop.

It occurs to me that this is a less than optimal result. Not quite the level of opposition I was expecting. Though, now I've basically taken the last 2 turns off, basically submitting raw husks of a turn. I've realized it's kinda nice to take a break from the game....

My turns are starting to look like work at this point, having maxed out on available fleet slots, ship designs, and turn files topping out around 15kb worth of MM in the x files...

If I had a unified universe that, in theory should still be far more powerful than me, it might be worth it. Though, I'm starting to regret joining a game in a universe w/ so many planets. Starting to remember why I had sworn off anything larger than a medium sparse w/ 16 players a long time ago....

It may be time to end the game. Starting to think I need to get out and enjoy the summer a bit more. Smile

Call it a draw? I agree that they are starting to look like work- I've not spent the time I should either. I do still think that me+ the Bolarians could win, if you insist on trying- I can produce around 250 beamer nubs/turn, and keep it up for around 3 turns before even having to re-destribute minerals.

I would still like to call off the alliance end and declare it a joint victory, but a draw (with congradulations to everyone- it has been a fun game) is a good solution for me too.

I'm okay with this. If I were to go back to maxing out production, I could probably produce 100 beamers/turn. More missile boats, but for fewer turns unless I ramped up miner production again.

You could come close to matching my fleet in those 3 turns, but I am still producing a bit under 100 ships/turn. I figured you had something over 200k resources.

I could probably strike out a few of your worlds before you could really hit me. That would slow you, and give me a chance to establish some bases elsewhere to make up for the backlash that you would unleash for the next 10 years, claiming up to 10 of my worlds over 15 years time. These losses would be offset by blob and bolarian worlds. They would likely offset their own losses, given natural progression of game, by canibalizing the Ancients and Vintili worlds.

After that period things would be highly equalized...big gray area. Still, this game has about twice as many planets/player on average overall...the amount of management required per turn is insane to really run the game. To really complete a turn, I would need something closer to a turn/week at this point. I've again burned myself out on stars! for the next year or so. This happens every 15 months. Smile

draw is fine.

A draw it is then. I'll not post my password, because I am using it in anotehr game right now. My resources are courently at 195K, but still going up at 6k per turn or so.

Acually, I was incedably vulnerable- I'm glad the 5 year termination clause was there. If I had just been attacked, almost anyone could hav nearly whiped me out- my only warships were cruisers from ages ago, and only a hundred or so of them.

Good game to everyone! I'll see you in other universes, eventually.

Still growing quite a lot faster than me. I was growing at only about 3-4k/turn. Mineral supplies were around a 2 year reserve on most worlds. Some without.

You overestimate your vulnerability. There's only so fast that anyone can attack w/out risking catastrophic losses. Granted, I was probably using my ships far more conservatively than I could.

Congratulations on a nice draw Nod

Thanks for playing. I'll leave the forum up for a while if you want to talk more.

See you out there in the Galaxy
