Sometimes I amaze even myself. Though not much recently. I
think toasting a Ur-Quan ship with a Supox. Not that it's
overly hard, just tedious.

Took one chenjesu through most of the SC1 fleet (both sides), only stopped by a Mmrnmhrm (the irony!).

Most of the damage I got before that was from the Umgah.

Once, I took out three Ur-Quan Dreadnoughts, two Kohr-Ah Marauders, and a Mycon Podship with an Earthling Cruiser -- I was on a crazy roll.

Another time, I took out a Kohr-Ah Marauder with just a Zoq-Fot-Pik Stinger.

Those were my two best killings that I can recall.

Killing a Skiff with a PODSHIP (on Awesome). I went like "OMG A SKIFF" or something along those lines, so I pressed fire and hoped.
That thing died.

Soon afterwards I got into an another Arilou vs. Mycon fight. It happened again.

But generally, I congratulate myself everytime I kill a Skiff with some non-laser-equipped ship (it's easy with some ships, but it's tedious).

------------------------

Other good kills were taking down a Terminator with a Stinger, and almost taking down an X-Form with a Drone (stupid planet! Angry)

Once (and only once) I killed an Avatar with a Guardian in comet mode. It got stuck in one of the Avatars wings, and destroyed it in just a few seconds.

Once I was fighting a Slylandro probe, and suddenly it initiated communications and asked "Why are you doing this? What you are doing is wrong!"
Ok, maybe not.

Might as well answer my own question  Grin

The last time was taking out all the 300 pt Armada except for the Orz and the Druuge with a single Syreen ship.  Shocked

Definitely one of many performances I wish I had videotaped for posterity Cheesy

You can reliably defeat an Avatar with a Guardian simply by laying a cloud of bubbles for the Avatar to blunder into, saving some energy for Comet mode.  Fly away from the Avatar at all times, drop the cloud (leaving maybe 1/3 of your energy), and fly around and behind the Avatar and continue flying to counteract the (inevitable) tractor beam.

got challenged by my 12yo nephew to a melee showdown. His favourite is the avatar, and he's pretty damn good with it.

I like the nemesis. Someone is very annoyed with me now...

Speaking of this one, I thought I'd do a little myth-busting on this one.  As far as being able to capture it, I went trying to at least duplicate it.  In fact, I exceeded it on my first try, and actually have it to show the world.

One syreen ship destroying the entire 300-pt armada set to the awesome cyborg.

I recently destroyed a Pkunk with a Druuge. Then I tried going against the Arilou and got killed very easily. Is winning that possible?

Yes, it relies on the incompetence of the enemy though. A human opponent may be defeatable due to inferior reflexes and getting scared of that fat gun.

I surprised my self in melee when I died horribly my never-played-before friends Orz Nemesis's against my Utwig Juggers... that's gotta be the only ship the Juggers aren't good at.

Juggers get owned by Chenjesu if the Chenjesu has either grav whip or a few DOGI's out.
