Good rendering...speaking of the Spathi they are on the warpath for me...it shocked me when I did it, still shocks me...

In my last 2 matches, Chmmr vs Spathi (me piloting the Spathi), I'm 2-0 against the Computer.

Scarrrryyy...

What, were you playing this against the SC3 AI?

I guess you used the main gun, didn't you? That's the only way to have an effect...

Oh, by all means, go ahead and post it wherever.. I can give you larger, more detailed, copies of it.   Maybe I'll make an Ur-Quan Kzer-Za and have them fight or something later on.. Or, just have him riding on the hull of a "eluder dreadnaught" screaming and blasting hot plasma death into the heavens.

I never played a day of SC3 in my life...this is SC2...

Yes the main gun until I took out one of the satellites then the BUTT to finish them off (time it right, it goes in untouched).

How is that possible? I thought the Spathi couldn't even damage the Chmmr because of the zap-sats...

They can with the main gun - the key is you have to send a full load at it (it's fast enough that the zapsats can't block it all) - sometimes the zapsats do block it, sometimes one or two will hit the main ship....as I eluded to earlier it's more likely that you'll take out one of the zapsats....when you do that, it finishes out pretty quickly since as was said, you can lace the BUTTs in untouched if you time them right.

Only problem is it's a long enough battle to be boring as hell - more or less just actually did the fight because I wanted to see if I could do it.  My guess is this takes 5-10 minutes.  And it does take away about 12-15 of my crew because of the planet, getting hit by the zapsats, etc. from flying too close.  I'm 4-1 now (the loss because I had 9 crew left when I met the Chmmr that time - at least I did get the Chmmr down enough that I could fly my Shofixti in and blow up the Chmmr :-) )  Probably won't purposely try in the future, since it's so damned boring.

If you're wondering, I fly in close enough so it doesn't tractor, but fly in circles around it, fire while I keep moving in the circle.  Works for the Spathi, works for the Yehat (usually it's a very one sided battle for him), and works for the ZoqFotTurd (I'm 1-0 now actually trying with that ship - there's more shot so the Chmmr gets hurt quicker).

Figuring it out enough - more time and I might punk the Chmmr out with everything that's capable enough to do it ;-D

I want to see somebody take down an Avatar with a single Earthling Cruiser.  That would be impressive.

Done Chad.  an 800x600 version of the Spathi and my SCII hyper melee remix in fasttracker format.

I'll probably work on some ships or something next.. If anyone has a request, I can see about making it.

Does it count if the chmmr just sits there? It's very nearly as difficult...
