Honestly guys, I'm more pissed at Gnaw and Tapper than anyone else. If Morgoth wants to waste his CT on destroying my carrier, that's his prerogative. I never gave that carrier much chance of living in the first place. I was honestly just hoping I'd sneak by long enough to take a shot at Teq/Tork for a turn, but fully expected to lose it immediately even if I did get that chance. And I'm obviously not angry at Nom, who's doing what he feels is necessary for his game, though I'll still argue that if he had just gone towards Tapper instead, he'd have more systems right now.

Tapper's just fucking with me for the sake of it. There was no reason for him to use the Plague card on me, nor any real reason to use the one that destroyed my PDS. It doesn't help him in any way, Nom was going to be going that way regardless, and that was pretty clear basically from the start. So all he is doing is making it easier for Nom, which doesn't really help Tapper in any way.

With Gnaw it's a little more personal cause it could have been a great alliance that would have given him and I an actual chance to win this game. But I guess that's not worth compromising 1 resource for.

In the end, I realize this is just a game guys, and I'm bitching about it, but I'll get over it! :)

Maybe tapper thought that destroying your odd would make it easier for nom and then you'd focus on nom more instead of him? I dunno

Your reaction is wholly understandable. I did type it up with some sheepishness.

Seriously, are you not seeing a connection between those two things?

That might have been a good excuse for using Plague, before it was obvious that Nom was not going to go his way, but keep building until he could burst through my barricade, but his using the PDS destroying card after I'd moved my War Sun outta the way, thus making it way easier for Nom to take M/Z back, was still in no way necessary to keep Nom headed in my direction. It was just a dick move for the sake of making a dick move.

Thatís your subconscious telling you to go for it! No guts, no glory.

There is nothing of value to "go for" though.
