Yeah a good secret objective draw can make or break the game.

I still think you have a scorable SO twelve, but since I can do very little to stop you I'll carry on trying to stop Toaster in case I'm wrong.

I'd like to applaud Tapper for current holding 3 different homeworlds though!

I'm looking forwards to the upcoming battle.

Oh I have a scorable one It's just not going to happen this round. D'rek keeps messing things up.


Now I'm very curious as to what your SO is, as I can't think of any D'rek would be messing up for you!

And I'm not ready to declare victory for Toaster or D'rek yet. I want my epic battle vs Toaster's fleet still!

So does this mean you have spark?

You'll have to wait and see! :p The uncertainty about SOs in this game is great.

I still see a path to more points, and possible victory so I'm going to do my best to keep the game going until a better position is mathematically improbable.

I have been considering whether an attack on Toaster's homeworld instead of tork is the better option, odds are lower that i'll take a planet but then Toaster can't just win first turn next round. I'd need Tatts PN to make it a 50:50 shot though.

That said chances that the game goes to another round and I win seem slim, so probably not worth it as this way I'll more likley increase my average score compared to everyone else.

Man I'm going stir crazy. I just looked at the map and saw that D'rek only has 1 Dread and no carriers to bring troops to take back her homeworld and thought I was a complete idiot for thinking I still might need to take influence off her and I wasted a fleet token for nothing. Then I realized that she has cruiser II and Super Dreads. This game has been going on so long I keep thinking everyone has reverted to starting tech positions.

Tatts you using that action card on your next turn? I'm thinking now is the time to kill some dudes to reduce the troop count she has available to retake her homeworld.

Can he play it on lirta if it's exhausted? Is the better option to try and stop her gaining CT by exhausting lirta when she refreshes it? Or I guess you can probably take lirta if you need to.

I thought it best to play it if she uses diplomacy to refresh it. That way infantry and planet get exhausted before she can use leadership

Right

As I lost the 1 fct upon activation due to neuroglaive that means even if all the 4 cruisers survive space combat, one of them will have to be destroyed along with its infantry before it can land said unit right?

- assuming yes and editing accordingly

Moment of Truth. 3 boys vs 2 of mine..
Was really hoping IH would move in before you would. Then I could have retreated with the surviving forces of the first on Tequ//Torq round into Thibah.

Yup! No bombardment, destroyer might get a shot off, close infantry numbers, it could definitely go either way.

I kinda love it when D'rek unleashes her nerd wrath, as I knew she would here. Sorry innocent bystanders, but someone's gotta be the kindling.

Pfff 2 hits the first combat @NOM, brutal :(
Ok, game over for me. Unless somehow I win that space combat. But with Warfunding and +1 from Warfare that seems impossible. Odds are 91% for IH, 9% for me.
So I will use foresight and save my fleet for next round.

So who is now the most best contender?
Is it Twelve , IH or is it Morgoth who has speaker and could win first round with imperial next turn ?

Or you who will still have all those fleets, and almost certainly enough CT next round to score!

Ok posted my turn which uses my tokens, not able to score 6 tokens anymore.

With this build I also improved my chances in space battle vs IH, while also protecting my Space Dock.
