What is the most amusing supermelee fleet?
« on: January 07, 2004, 01:21:17 am »

One can debate what supermelee fleet might be best in terms of winning, and I think we have... but I haven't seen much conversation what the funniest fleets to fly are.

For example, I recently began doing theme fleets of about 180 points...

It Ain't Easy Being Green: 2 Ur-Quan, 4 Supox, 8 Umgah (this quantity makes the total point value about the same for each)

The Ancients: Arilou, Orz (both timeless), Slylandro (older than precursors), Mycon, Mmrnmhrm (both tools of ancient races, perhaps precursors), Melnorme, Ur-Quan, Kohr-Ah (Milieu races), Thraddash (have risen to spacefaring about 10 times)

The Quasispace Tango: 4 Arilou, 3 Orz, 3 Androsynth

The Comic Relief: whatever species you find the funniest, with quantity based on how funny they are. For me, that's 3 Zoq-Fot-Pik, 2 Pkunk, 2 Orz, 2 Spathi, 2 Shofixti, Umgah, Thraddash, Syreen (lights out scene only. Also, that voice actress doesn't do rage well, so if I have voices on that's pretty funny)

The Religious: 3 Pkunk, 3 Utwig, 3 Ilwrath, 2 Shofixti, 1 Thraddash, 1 Zoq-Fot-Pik

Sir Not-Appearing-In-This-Game: 2 Chenjesu, 2 Mmrnmhrm, 2 Androsynth, 2 Melnorme, Supox, Zoq-Fot-Pik (these last three do appear, but the chances of you bringing them into battle in-game are slim or nonexistent)

The Zero-Eyed: 2 Chmmr, 2 Chenjesu, 1 Mycon, 1 Mmrnmhrm, 1 Slylandro

The One-Eyed: 3 Spathi, 3 Melnorme, 4 VUX, 4 Zoq-Fot-Pik (The Pik is one-eyed at least)

The Two-Eyed: 1 Orz, 1 Yehat, 1 Utwig, 1 Pkunk, 1 Druuge, 1 Arilou, 1 Supox,  1 Androsynth, 1 Syreen, 1 Earthling, 1 Ilwrath, 1 Thraddash, 1 Shofixiti, 1 Zoq-Fot-Pik (Zoq and Fot have 2 eyes)

The Three-Or-More-Eyed: 2 Kohr-Ah, 2 Ur-Quan, 5 Umgah, 5 Zoq-Fot-Pik (If you add the number of their eyes up)

reunification:

7 earthling crusiers
7 androsynth blazers

vs

unified:

7 kohr-ah
7 ur-quan

this match up pits a returning androsyth (from parts unknown) to help defend mother earth and its people from angry ur-quan and hohr-ah. just hours after the desruction of the sa-matra.

can you hold out long enough...?

During a random spurt of hexediting, I tried dinking around with the fleet files (seeing if I could cause any other ships to appear in Super Melee). Though the fleets themselves are not inherantly amusing, I came up with odd names for a couple of fleets.

Androfixti: Every ship between Androsynth and Shofixti.
Sly-VUX-Pik: Every ship between Slylandro and Zoq-Fot-Pik.

And why is it that nobody acknowleges that the one in the middle is the Fot? Perhaps that should be the next UQM Fact.

Nic already proved that the Fot is the guy in the middle. The source never lies.

I'd prefer not to argue about the Zoq-Fot-Pik. I think the middle dude is Pik. Almost everyone agrees the green plant lady (?) is Zoq.

Faster faster fast it goes: 3 Slylandro Probe, 3 Pkunk Fury, 3 Androsynth Blazer, 3 Druuge Mauler (backwards flying)

There's nothing to argue about, it's in the source

reunification:

This one has made me think of a match-up:

Outlaws for Inlaws: (basically, groups of ships that have a genetic history)
1 Earthling, 1 Androsynth
1 Urquan, 1 Kohr-Ah
1 Pkunk, 1 Yehat
1 Chmmr, 1 Chenjesu, 1 Mmrnmhrm
1 Druuge, 1 Shofixti (if you sell them the maidens, that is)
1 Zoq-Fot-Pik

I suppose if you really want two more ships to fill up all the blanks, you could add the Earthling-Syreen pair from your eventual marriage to Talana.

Well, Talana probably had a point when she said that the Syreen and Humans were too close genetically for coincidence. So, how about for the Earth's family ties one...

Earthling, Androsynth, Syreen, Arilou, Orz
(Orz because they absorbed the Androsynth, others should be obvious)

The Getyer/Opposition-Royally/AnnoyedAtchoo Combine is one of my favorites when playing a hunam.

2 Spathi Eluders
2 Arilou Skiffs
6 Shofixti Scouts
2 Supox Blades
2 Pkunk Furies

Whatever you throw at them, after it dies and your opponent has still got his/hers/its, send a Scout.

Neutral Aliens, don't shoot!: 3 Melnorme Trader, 3 Druuge Mauler, 3 Slylandro Probe, 3 Arilou Skiff

@Nic: Argh, what next? I say the Burvixese were killed by Kohr-Ah and then you come and say "No no, they were killed by Druuge and it's in the source (3DO)" or something other crap? And everyone else agrees. You are really starting to piss me off.

How about the fearful: Spathi, Druuge, Earthling, Mycon
(Because all you do is run away and fire if you are a Druuge, Earthling or mycon)

And how about the Fearless. Zoq-Fot-Pik, Sofixti, Arlou, Umagh and ?syreen?.  

All of those races were chosen because the range of there weapons,   and their nature in the actual game.
