Elerium and I played our semi-finals game. Despite massive bouts of lag, we finished, with me winning (by 64 points, in case you wanted that information.)

Well, it's over!

The final match was very intense, and it finally ended with me defeating Tiberian by one Ilwrath.

Finally.

Nope. I could tell you what happened however Tongue

I will, just because I'm bored Tongue

The game began with him as Supox and me as Umgah. I tried various tactics - zooming backwards, lunging from the planet, going on really fast gravity whips - and managed to do 2 damage before dying. I picked Melnorme, and I did an awful job aiming at him, and he managed to shoot me down to 1 crew before I smacked his ship with a large shot. He picked Shofixti and tried to win without using the Glory Device. He used gravity whips and got close enough at one point to hit me, but missed. Eventually, inevitably, I got a lucky shot on him. He picked Kohr-Ah; I kept high-powered shots and just blocked all the disks, periodically aiming a confuse ray at him, hitting, and then firing a red shot. I hit with two red shots before he managed to catch me with the disks. I picked Earthling; hitting with three missiles wasn't that hard. Earthling vs. Kohr-Ah battles are interesting but not easy to summarize. He picked ZFP. He didn't try to tongue me (probably wisely) but I hit him with a missile, two zaps, and then another missile I had fired came around in a wide circle to finish him off. That was a surprise.He picked Chmmr. Haha. I picked Kohr-Ah, and screwed up the fight - I only got him down to half his crew and with no zap-sats.

This is where it gets interesting:

I picked Mmrnmhrm, used the Y form; at the end of the round, he managed to accelerate me to ridiculous speed with the tractor beam. He picked Syreen, and I tried to use the high speed to my advantage, but I ran into his ship, stuck against it for a moment, and lost half my crew. Then I lost the other half of my crew by normal means. I used Chmmr to get rid of the over-crewed Syreen, then he pulled Orz against my Chmmr; I repeatedly used the tractor beam while gravity whipping at him until he got a bad start and was basically run over. Then he tried Utwig: I lasered him luckily for half his HP right away, and for the first minute of the fight, he somehow managed to not regain any energy from shield - he almost got down to no energy, but then he recharged it on my zap-sats. I ran him into the planet a few times, and finally won with another laser shot just on the edge of my range. By that time, though, I was down to 1 crew, so he finished me off with Melnorme green shot. I pulled Androsynth against his Melnorme, since he'd already used Orz, and pounded it, dodging the inevitable confusion ray. He killed the Androsynth with his usual Slylandro.

At that point, I only had Ur-Quan, VUX, Druuge, and Ilwrath left, and he had the Slylandro, an Umgah, and an Earthling. I tried to use the Ur-Quan on the Slylandro, but failed - I didn't manage to hit at all, although I did get in a few damage with the fighters. Then I tried VUX, and got a bunch of limpets on him, but he did a lot of damage to me - by the time I got a good shot with the laser, I was almost dead. The Slylandro killed my VUX first, so I was left with Druuge or Ilwrath to kill the limpeted thing. Thing is, Druuge can handle Earthling or Umgah while Ilwrath can't beat Umgah, so I used the Druuge - he tried dodging for a while, but since he could barely turn, I inevitably hit him with a shot, and one shot was all that was necessary. He tried Umgah first, attacking by reversing up next to me, but either he did it badly or I was just prepared for it, and I ended up shooting him as he approached. He continued trying the attack until I killed him with another shot. Then he was left with only Earthling, and I just kept missing - I only landed two of the necessary three shots before he finished off my Druuge. Of course, at that point my remaining ship was an Ilwrath, so the last fight was trivial. Smiley

That is quite a story. I think in light of this, Vidshot should be employed for all league games.
a) it provides replays of awesome melees
b) as a tool for despute resolution

You should all down load it now - its real easy to use.

I cant get sound to work on it though.
