Well, the round's almost over
and I've had a blast, for sure. Thought it might be interesting to have a
thread where people could recap the round and post their most interesting
experiences / favorite memories of the round.
1. The big jump on the Rens raid in the racials. I didn't
participate because I'd taken a pod (to Rens) the day before, but I was
watching on IRC. Great fun.
2. Trading shots with John the Rock in 23k, early in the
round. He'd been killing some of our traders there earlier, and ZZT and I
were trying to kill him. I kept getting seperated from ZZT and finding myself
IS with him. We'd both trade a few shots, run, and repair. This happened
several times before ZZT and I finally managed to catch him 2v1 over the
3. Our first level 50 port raid. Done with 6 swarms and 4
TTPWs, and a beautiful 15 minute raid with that sort of weaponry.
4. The really big jump on the SH fleet camping Crimson.
Though we ended up getting slaughtered on their levels, was an interesting
experience to scamble so many people into warbirds and attemt such a risky
jump. I remember the entire top half of the F2 roster being online.
5. Mal and I podding Greven in 31k.
6. Genocide solo jumping three of us as we escorted a
HOLY raid. Me triggering and getting the kill. :) Then the resulting flood of
curses and insults as he came to whine in the public channel.
7. Numerous escapes in 1v1 combat that ended with me
running away at under /5. And a few the other way around. :)
8. Myre, ToMa, Ghost and I causing havoc with the
attempted ASx planet raid in 22k. We killed a bunch of RCs, suiciders, and a
couple escorts before they finally managed to swarm us at the node.
Completely screwed up their plans and made them cancel the raid. :)
9. Triggering on a high level 0/5 ID wraith resourcer in
26k and NOT KILLING HIM. I'd needed so many scouts to see him consistantly
that my drones did no damage and I missed with just enough weapons that he
survived. Very embarrasing. :P
10. A brief hunting stint in 26k and being delighted at
how many high level, fat targets there were busily trading and resourcing away.
Made several billion off hunting there before I relocated. :)
Side note: I've had a great time this round. I couldn't
ask for a better crew of people to fly with, and I'm honored to be a part of
a group of such fine new players. I'm very proud of what we've done this
1. Jumping Darkforse with
assorted Tpx escorts and a high level SH kit with Zzt. First real hunter
experience and a tremendous one at that. End result: Two dead tpx escorts,
one dead SH, one dead raider. That was probably the best jump of the round
that I've been in... outnumbered and still mauled them. Lots of newbish
mistakes in hindisght, but if they weren't made then there would have been
less genocide. :D
2. Sabateour triggering on Zzt and getting mauled. Not
much personal involvement here, but this wins the comic relief award. It
would have been funnier if Greven hadn't been such an arse about it.
3. Ignorance camping Max, Sol trying to kill him but
failing to fool him, while on my first try I came in and mauled him after he
triggered on Max. >:D
4. Droning DA to death, followed by droning SH. Also
clearing drones in general, especially in Asx land (hehe...). I didn't enjoy
at the time, but in hindsight it's quite a bit of fun. Especially worth
noting was driving John Doe insane and almost getting him killed by Iccyh and
5. Solace getting killed by Sixes and some other tpx
guy... while Ghost and me escape nearly unscathed after blowing them up. Is
it possible to have any worse luck?
6. Working with STS. Who would have thought? Very rough
on the edges at first but it smoothed out near the end. On a similar note,
Wonks being a doomsday prophet and actually being right (these people are
supposed to be crazy, what is the world coming to >.>).
7. Selling the raiders after every op and then rebuying
them, followed closely by pirating the raiders. Okay, so I thought Myre was a
complete idiot when he suggested the second one. I still do... :o
8. Malhavoc guarding me when I got stuck in space early
in the round. In general Dathkara being womblike in the earlier stages of the
game. I grew up there from a little sniv to a great big one... *sniffles*
9. Malhavoc taking rping a bit too far while stuck at a
port during a layover. :P
10. Killing 3 low level newbs in our very first raids.
Wasn't that significant, but they were my first kills dang it and I was happy
11. Ghost getting raided out of 26k after having stayed
docked there for weeks, then dying twice in two days as a raider. Someone
slap some sense into the kid please.
12. Being the high and mighty level 68 sniv in a cheap
ship. Yes, z0r can be quite the trade whore. A cheap ship but a good one. I
had a ton of fun while I was in that thing, twas a shame I was raided out. My
previously learned hunting skills and my experience really paid off here and
came together nicely, I thought.
13. Ship building in 30 minutes under the nose of SH.
That almost gave me a heart attack.
That's all I can think of at the moment. I'll probably be
trying to compile a Fury history of the round in the coming days. No school
and all. :O
Not much by me but...: 1. My first alliance, TNT, and a great time spent w/ hype
learining to trade and the basics. However, the most important thing was
realising that tdzk is 80% irc ;] 2. Some good time in FX. nice ppl. 3. Finaly in Fury ;] beeing #1 queelar player in exp for
some time (yay! ^_^) my first hunting expirinces. 4. pod pod pod... while building a ship, lags, etc...
generally bad luck :/// 5. Banzaiiii, i.e. suicide missions during an op. Waiting
till 6 AM for someone from sts to appear while complaing to myre "i
wanna go sleep" :P ... and than it turns out myre forgetting about the
station not being in a nebula and giving me a wrong design, which results in
my fruitless crash against the port. well, better luck next round for me ^^'
1) Goes back to the ole' ir days. For any of you that
know, beburos got me into the game. I'll never forget the day he tried to
teach me(and he's horrible at that) and told me "i can't talk, ir is
having an emergency" and the notices/news were completely empty.
2) still in ir days(fury is coming, i assure ye). My very
first repping job, bonsai taking on a level 11 port. He had the faith in me
to keep him alive, and ill never forget him. Great leader he was.
3) (first fury one). Max and i coming to the mutual
opinion that i'd do better in fury. I'd repped for fury before, and even
caused the mauling of the entire raid team>.<(someone did something
bad, and triggered more than once, i repped him like i was supposed to, all i
remember was that it was the first time jerle mentioned my name in
public^_~). That goes out to max:D.
4) my first lvl 50 raid by myself in fury. I will NEVER
do another 2 and a half hour raid if i can help it. That was the worst raid,
including the first sts on "spam rep, its more efficient".
5) IRC @ Myre. That is all i can say to explain it. I
know i've made myre pull his own hair out with my stupid ideas, but yet
everytime he made a better impact on me, and made me decent in what i do.
6) back to the start of the round. Me owning 21202, and
making it damn hard to take. Rens put 3 suiciders, and the planet killed 2 of
their raiders. LOF owns it now, went by there only to found out ren actually
wasted turns destroying stuff:D
7) the sh war. Alot better than the sts war in ir. We
stood up for something that was right, and won. Best time i've had, too bad
it happened to late.
1. Being kicked from Fury for
inactivity by the great and honorable Solace 2. Joining CoG after that and finding out the benefits
and luxuries i had in FUry were now gone in being in a newb alliance 3. Re-joining Fury as an RC 4. Being the #1 cash whore in Fury for the majority of
the round 5. RCing GC raids and Fury raids 6. Hunting with Agito in my RC and getting my ass whooped
by dronestroyers 7. Restarting as a Kitaran and getting in an RC again 8. Pinging almost every FX drone and being jumped by 6 of
them at the node and survive with a /2 rating 9. Begging to be an Op in the private room 10. Becoming the only op for one night with COMPLETE
power, MWAHAHA 11. lets see......19 pods 12. doing all 11 above on dial-up =P
