This game has been a complete waste of time. Alien, Chaos, Goober, thanks for nothing.

There's not a single chance of me having any impact in this game, but I'm going to dedicate whatever turns I have left to be as annoying as possible to you three players by whatever means necessary.

What'd you expect me to do? Attack the Kotosians instead when they decided they wanted a piece too?
Feel free to annoy me. I was hoping for a challenge.

No, that would not be same/fair.

IF Kotosians pick on your AR THEN same/fair=pick on his AR

Well, it would have been nice for you not to detonate your minefields and kill off my fleeing freighters and colony ships.

As of now, I have zero colonists in transit.
I have two planets, one of which is targeted for destruction (and unable to get a single ship into space), the other of which is painfully useless. (less than 3000 colonists and terrible mineral concentrations)
My transformers were destroyed by Gooberloons who chased them as they fled, trying to escape to a friend's space.

Usually the goal is to get 25k by 2450. By then, I'll be completely wiped out down to the last ship.

Frustrating is probably the word I would have used back when your minelayers invaded my space. I don't know what you call this.

ok... since you seem so mad about this, I'll tell you why it happened.

1) You are AR, meaning you are easy to attack since you don't need bombers to knock out your worlds.

2) You didn't have a *single* armed ship when I attacked, hell you didn't even have an armed starbase besides the default HW one...

I'm sorry but that is almost asking to be killed.

So what you're saying is that because I chose to play AR, I deserve to be killed?

As for not having any armed ships;
1. In my experience, Stars! players usually do not get homocidal until some sort of argument or dispute takes place. I made a few deals with my neighbours over borders and race relations were good. Stars! ettiquette has, as far as I've known, been that you don't attack a neighbour who's been cooperative and peaceful.
2. I build a minefield around my core worlds as my first line of defence.
3. I kept up a bit of weapons reseach in case I needed to build warships quickly. Obviously, it's difficult to produce enough ships to fight off three other races at once. Would it have really mattered how many armed ships I had?
4. Maybe it was stupid for me to assume this, but I figured I wouldn't prove to be enough of a threat (or have enough that an enemy would want) to provoke any sort of attack. I had like 10 planets. What do you want?

Really, what did you accomplish by all this? The three of you have now stolen about 2 planets apiece (which you could have well colonized on your own and saved yourself building some warships)
and have proceeded to systematically destroy everything I have.
At what point does this stop becoming a game and start becoming a crap shoot?

Stars! etiquette was thrown out of the window in this game long ago. Just look at the Goober attack on Djurids while on freindly status at the same time as receiving trade ships blcch... Djurids weren't any threat either.

At least I have the benefit of escaping with 4 of my 5 transformers and several hundreds of thousands of colonists. You can't kill what you can't see. Somebody surely wants to provide safe haven and use my SS abilities to help kill the #¤&%.

I at least get to look forward to the day of revenge.

Borg see Djurids travelling through lots of Borg territory. Borg see 80% cloaked Djurid warship blowing up Borg colonist transports...

Aurelians and Borg playing GAH! First Aurelians give orders to crash minesweep to wrong fleet. Grr! Shocked Then Borg follow by somehow forgetting important step or not saving turn after step was done. GAHHHH! Embarassed

Well, the few warships that survived ran - they want something to do and they aren't going to commit suicide on Goober space stations. Twisted Evil
