Subject: Fleet Challenge- BUMPERCARS!   PostPosted: Wed Dec 07, 2016 8:25 pm Reply with quote

Sorry this took a bit longer, I kind of forgot about this.

For this Fleet Challenge- I'm giving you all 50 pts to make a fleet that centers around Ramming and Boarding.

The fleet doesn't need to be solely dedicated to ramming and boarding, but i do expect to see several ships with "Cannot Be Pinned" as rare as they are.

Lastly, Let's avoid-
Claw Cannon with Switchblades/Scorpions. Even though that's a fun combination, it is also NOT considered "ramming" for the sake of this challenge. :p

What's Allowed-
2 UT's
1 Fort
1 Event

I'll give everyone a week and a half to build their fleets, and because I'm a lousy judge of fleets and whatnot- i'll just flip a coin! Just kidding, I don't know what i'll do to figure out the winner. Dec. 17th!

Let me know who's ready to go full tilt into the HMS Dreadnought !

Sounds like fun, I'm in.

@Xerecs: This would be a great time to get one of your brothers (you know which one) to join MT. Smile Arrow

@selvaxri: In terms of judging, you could potentially make it mandatory that everyone who submits a fleet must also vote on the fleets of the other participants, and then the highest score wins (with you deciding ties in the case of all 5's, etc).

I should enter this, although the next week is crazy town for me. Any chance you can make it the 18th? =)

I'm in as well, but a question. This is a regular game we're designing fleets for? They just happen to have ramming and boarding focuses yes? We're not designing a deathamtch fleet is what I'm asking.

First to submit, I see.

I'm curious to see how other people try their own entries.

Pun intended? Your seems rather boarding-focused, and boarding never REALLY struck me as a potent strategy. I suppose a purpose-built intercept and board ship could make a difference, but a lot of the game's boarding abilities never appealed.

Ah thanks. I saw that here but just added the forts as an afterthought as I finished the fleet.

What ironic timing - actual bumper cars in real life!

So I'm assuming that this doesn't have to be a pure nation fleet?

Nope, just 50pts to build a bumper car fleet.
