I lost my match with JESUS the other day. I really screwed the pooch in that one, boy he better look out for when I get another shot. I didn't grab a screeny though, didn't want to remember the humiliation :(

Does that mean you're free for a challenge?

It was actually alot closer than the score would suggest :o , and could have gone either way on the silo launch as we both had bombers and subs ready to strike.

Thanks for the match Ender . I look forward to the next one.

Having survived Half Dome, hungry black bears, 114deg Death Valley and the MGM Grand's craps tables I'm ready to be taken off TI.

Not sure when I'll have the energy for a game though :wink:

Well, after an entertainingly tense game, Rus|Mike and I came to some sort of conclusion. He dropped very near to the end. I was pretty much defeated, with 3 silos gone and my entire coast open to scouting / subs.

Since the server had stopped advertising on the metaserver, he couldn't put the password in, so couldn't rejoin. We decided to have me play the CPU and see what happened. Talk about confidence in your own position! Somehow, I managed to win by about 5m kills (more by taking advantage of the CPUs incompetence and predictability than actual playing skill).

After looking at the replay, I've decided to concede, since I'd never have been able to pull that off against an actual person.

If you disagree, look here:The Recording

I'm pretty sure I'd have lost.

If you disagree, please give reasons!

Well I almost played my match with MikeTheWookiee. For some strange reason I was dropped near the end and couldn't reconect because of a password.
That's how the game looked like right before I dropped:

Recording (one more long game by that slow rus|Mike):
http://dedcon.homelinux.net/serverlogs/Duel/2007/09/16/1315/recording_duel1_Sun_Sep_16_13_15_07_UTC_2007.zip

12 subs with 2 nukes each ready to strike, carriers ready to recon silos + 3 silos already destroyed, left bombers to patrol for subs and my silos totaly unreconed... we thought I would have won it. CPU lost it thought, but only with 2.9M difference.

I guess I rechallenge creator now.

P.S.
Bert said he'll fix it: make the hosts remove the passwords after the game is started. That means the connection via direct IP will be possible.

P.P.S.
MikeTheWookiee summed it up pretty nice :D
