I've got no problem with Laika serving as a moderator. If he turns out to be an idiot, which I doubt will happen, it's easy enough to shut him down, no? Somewhat late to the party on this, but I agree. He seems like a pretty decent guy and has a solid commitment to the community. Granted if those a...

I'm just doing some renovations which required mothballing my desktop. I should be around in a couple of weeks or so.

This seems to fit the bill.

SJ, Baton is a top-notch player. Keep playing with people like him (and paying attention to what they do!) and you'll get better.

First, I don't really care about your opinion anymore. Second, let interested people watch the recording and make their own conclusions. Third, as I said, I'm not going to play with you again. I think I pointed out the reason clear enough. If you will come to play under alias again, feel free to wh...

Anyway, that's the final nail in the coffin for me. Between the bungled group stage and the various players "retiring" mid-way through this was already a bit of a joke. It has been almost three months now, for what should be a very simple tournament. If we are going to run a bracketed tour...

i mean a hard setup for Byron! :) It was still a very deserved win. I maybe played a little more relaxed than I should have, but not enough to call it a factor. I'm pretty sure he would have won regardless. He played the setup the way it was meant to be played: he crushed my cities early and then d...

It's entirely on you. A truly well supported refutation. I guess we will have to agree to disagree then. I was not angry about Tom leaving, which is something else you are choosing to ignore despite me telling you about it in game. Right after he left you said this publicly and nothing else in alli...

No, seriously, i am new, i bought the game on steam last weekend. However i asked on forums since i could find a few players still waiting for games during evenings GMT+1. And lots of single player matches vs cpu in progress. So i was asking if there is a particular time of the day in which is easi...

I don't see the opposition to maximizing points. It's the nature of the game, and among the "bosses" and the pros just below them, tourney or non-tourney, that is standard practice. You clean. I can't speak for others, but I still am up and down on the quality of my cleans, especially in ...

Why did you bother with maximizing points? He had 110 million kills (give or take), and you could easily have got 130 with your subs and silos. Even if he had four or five subs, you still had the game in the bag. It's that kind of turtling that really pisses people off. Maybe cover your launches wi...

Ok, let's get on with this. So far Ace, R3D and myself are through to the next round. With two exceptions, all the people who are still in the tournament are around and actively playing pub games. It can't be that hard to organize your tournament matches. If Care Bear and Zoro are out I suggest we j...

Anyone who plays this game would benefit from a series with hooru (or ZD, as Ace like to imply). I call next in line. Not till 100, but at least till I'm good!

Well I haven't played minicom, but I do have concerns about the ability of subs to nuke anywhere. It's not so much the seanuking thing, though that is a concern, it's more their being used for blind nuking silos. In some setups, like EU-Russia, that could be extremely devastating for one side. I thi...
