Both games were hard fought with lots of vicious fighting over all the objectives. Thanks and kudos to Sendai for a couple of great games.

After a very difficult struggle, I was able to defeat rrorymoulton in both battles. Didn't take screen shot though... ;-0 Are we supposed to report results in this thread? Saw others doing it.


Anyone know how many resources the shooting-forts give you in that scenario?

I recall blasting one of the shooting forts gave me 100 RPs. I only switched to targeting forts on the last few turns so the resources were pretty much wasted. Next time I think I'd do it a lot earlier.

Hi, yeah, screenshots are really needed as proof of result. If you've won both though, it'll be okay as long as your opponent comes in here an confirms the result. Can you pm them?

Thanks

Hello Carth,

happy to be playing my first tournament game, finally (first opponent was a no-show). What Country/Time Zone/ are you in?

Just a quick update from our game with Duplex- the games are at turn 8 & 9, and hopefully we'll be able to finish over the weekend.

Hello gentlemen !

As for the game between Fabio and myself, I guess we'll use the 2 full weeks delay considering that we seldom play more than 1 turn a day.
Can you confirm me what is the exact due date : monday evening or tuesday evening ?

Thank you for the games, Duplex. Confirming I won both games. Replays and victory screens attached.

Unfortunately, I didn't do an AAR, as we were pressed to play the games quick since we started a week late due to no-shows for both of us. Will try for next round!

You should've played the games simultaneously to save time waiting between turns.

So me and Herode_2 decided to end our matches because of the deadline. At our current standing i won both games but it was very hard-fought on especially the middle city. :)

Confirmed. Although we have the same (symetric) scores at the moment, my defenses are slowly collapsing and it's only a matter of a few turns before Fabio would have scored much more points than me.

Interesting game, my first multiplayer here, and I very well may try more games like that, it's refreshing and fun :D

GG Fabio, and good luck for the following rounds !

I lost both matches to uran21. He was better and finally I surrendered in both games. I would have played the games to the end but I'm unexpectedly busy in real life right now and can't play very often.

Of course I forgot to take the screenshots... Sorry about that.
