"Misspelled" is correct in both UK and US English. Are you confused or trying to wind us up?


*Profanity deleted* I really thought I had spelled misspell wrong. Oh My God. I'm really sorry.  :-/

'I' before 'E' except after 'C'
And when sounding like 'A'
As in neighbor and weigh
And on weekends and holidays
And all throughout May
And you'll always be wrong
No matter what you say.

 - Brian Regan

As for the original topic, my favourite US English ship is the Yehat Terminator.  My brother and I have played many fun Yehat vs Yehat joust matches.  Balancing the guns and shields is an artform.

"my favourite US English ship is the Yehat Terminator."

I always thought the Yehat built the Terminator.  Tongue

mmrnmhrm transformer, pure owning.
this ship can terminate all ships but 2:

1) chmmr avatar:

y mode is useless vs him cause damn shield
x mode`s tween laser is weaker then the shield + mega laser of the avatar.

2) yehat terminator:

y mode can do nothing vs the damn shield
x mode misses most of its attack cause shield + terminator`s range is greater then the x form so the terminator can kill him easely.

all other ships would be destroyed vs a transformer controlled by a skillful player

Hands down the Suppox Blade. It's perfect for zipping in and out of danger, strafing enemies and evading their return fire. Ooooohh, it's so exhilerating!

Blade, the choice of every foogspy.
I, however never claim to be a foogspy, and actually prefer the drone.  Yeah, that's right: the Umgah Drone baaaybeee.  I love ramming the enemy into a random direction (i never really win, but I have loads of fun).   Grin

Pardon my ignorance on online terminology, but what exactly is a "foogspy"?

BTW, I agree C20, the Drone is fun for sending people cometing into the planet.  Grin

Online terminology? Google returns 0 hits for "foogspy". Culture20 must have invented the word (or at least the spelling).

I talked with the Trademaster and he does have some information on this term, I however could not afford the 1,000,000 trade units he was asking...

Oops, sorry.  It's a term from way back on the timewarp boards meaning "a really good pilot".  I have no idea how it originated.  I might have even spelled it wrong.  I was hoping to find an example of its use in the waybackmachine, but TW's old forums don't contain data in the threads (wayback never converted the dynamic stuff into html).

I'm feeling like shouting "Boo!" in the Oort Cloud.
I think I'll rather shout it here.
So, here it goes...
BOOO!!!

As a BIG ship I prefer the Broodhome when I'm all about winning - it's a good ship and I'm not really bad with it. However, as Elvish can attest, I usually hit the planet badly (mainly when I've got only the kaptain left).
As a BIG ship I use the Dreadnought if I don't mind being unable to hit anything (and losing three quarters of my crew on fighters).
As a FAST, FUN ship I really love the Guardian (in Blazer form); bubble bathing is fun too. And Avatar-wedging.

As an opponent, I love the Dreadnought.

I like different ships for different reasons.

The Orz Nemesis shows that fast ships with little defense do have a place in this game. The Nemesis has good speed, great weaponry, but almost no defense.

I like the Transformer's idea, but I just suck so much at using it.

I always liked the Melnorme Trader. It's appearance just seemed so much more clean and realistic than the others, with its silver appearance. It's charging weapon I'm also akin to, being a rather avid MMX player.

The Supox blade is another ship I really am bad at using, but has some great potential.

The Arilou Skiff I love, too. It's ability to teleport out of danger has saved me from many a death, and its auto aim weapon is extremley good.
