    No server?

    I'd have to look, can I run a server too? I *might* have some rackspace in a month or so...

    No server?

    Checked just now, the drop team server is not up. :-(

    some questions

    Nice to see a new face. Would you be interested in a match, anytime soon?

    Where is everyone?

    Online now, if anyone wants to play. I'll hang around for ~30 min

    Where is everyone?

    \o/ Though, admittedly, my first thought was "Ut oh, a human! He's gonna kick my behind". You didn't quite manage :-P Tell me more about steel beasts?

    Good News on Demo and A Question

    Is there some way for full version players to play against the demo version online? This might be one of the (many) reasons why drop team isn't more popular. Not many people online!

    Sunday Bloody Sunday VS Black Sabbath

    Just tell the bot to stop, and they'll actually do somewhat better (they keep their frontal armor pointed towards threats) Anyway... to test your statement, I went out on the server today and played with 4 ion thors each time. It turns out that 4 ion thors under ai control are *easily* outperformed by 1 ion thor under human control, if only because the bots do not coordinate their fire. *Two* ion thors under human control are much more effective than you'd suspect. Just keep aiming at the impact point/puff of smoke caused by the other human, and you can destroy even a thor relatively quickly. Since you're ablating armor twice as quickly, this also means that the target has less time to turn the target patch away from you. (so all the factors add up somewhat non-linearly) Future trials: I wonder what happens if you have 3 or more human controlled ion vehicles. I wonder if tempests become effective in that case.

    Ad-hoc and/or daily play

    LOL :-P Anyway... maybe we could exchange IM addresses via private message or so to set up more meets. More meets is more players, more players is more games, more games is more meets. :-)

    :mad: YOU MAGGOTS LEARN THE BASICS. LEFT RIGHT RIGHT LEFT. YOU WILL ADDRESS ME AS SIR! IT'S ALL ABOUT TEAMWORK. THE FIRST DUDE TO BREAK FORMATION GETS 20 PUSHUPS. :mad: DROP DOWN ON THE FLOOR AND GIMME 20! <Heh, that's another definition for "drop team" :-P > In other news, I played with Dumbrocket today. (S)he's better than I am ^^;; If other folks want to be able to best Dumbrocket, I think you should also play sometime on weekdays. O:-)

    Ad-hoc and/or daily play

    I'm usually online around 20:00-0:00 CEST (18:00-22:00 UTC, 12:00-17:00 EST), and can sometimes be up 'till 02:00 CEST (0:00 UTC, 19:00 EST) or later. Are there other people around who might be up/online/able to play at those times. We could get in more practice, and be able to beat up on the wednesday and sunday regulars :cool:

    Sunday Bloody Sunday VS Black Sabbath

    Oh, you can pull just about anything on me and I don't mind one bit. I mean, maybe you were sacrificing those ewv's and thors in some kind of grand-master chess plan. That'd have been cool! ;-) I'm usually pretty laid back about things, as long as you explain what you're doing in some sane way. I wasn't pissed off so much by what you were doing as I was by your crazy explanations. :-P OHHHH! THAT explains EVERYTHING. This story just gets funnier and funnier. ;-D Dude. Here's the deal: You can mess with any vehicles anyday, even on the same team. Just explain what you're doing in some logical, coherent way, and we're the best of friends (even if the logic turns out to be flawed after, at least we learn something). And at least warn when you're drunk :-P
