Fed slot open! Very challenging game: http://play.planets.nu/#/sector/256858

Enough points to go from midshipman to Admiral in one shot should you win.
Good position, great ally.

Almost true... Tier 8 badges and above are not available to replacement players.

Vice Admiral is still a nice jump, should a player be successful in this regard.

What makes you think that a player jumping into this map as a Fed midshipman would be successful, though?

I mean, I'm willing to try just about anything, but I'm not sure how that works. Are they allied to anyone or is it a lone wolf game, etc etc?

I think a fed midshipman may get massacred. On the other hand it would be good experience.

It is not a lone wolf game and there are long-standing alliances and opponents in play. It's zero ally victory condition, so championship game material.

As Circus Maximus used to say: This is a Nationalism-style game

I would join but there are easier ways to embarass myself :)
Looks like a painful game.

What @Siggi said. Two very good players have just resigned, and there's quite a few still in. I'd need one heck of an inducement.

The fed resignation has nothing to do with tactical, entirely personal unfortunately for him. The rebel resignation is knee jerk and unexpected. His position is bad but not terrible if there's a fed.

Yeesh... two good players leaving doesn't really sound great.

But I hate to see games fall apart due to droppers. Any other information about the political situation of those two positions? Were they allied or working together (and thus the Rebel knee-jerk quit when his partner went missing?)

I don't know the full extent of the rebel fed agreements but clearly rebel survival hinged on fed support. I think Tom's reaction is knee jerk, his position is bad but not un-salvageable.

Rebels are fighting both the Crystals and Privateers. Neither is optimal, both is fatal.

Rebels began game with an anti-priv strategy of not putting beams on H carriers. So even if lost, they can't be used for robbing.

DM made strong territorial demands in our NAP which limited my only enemy to the privs.

With the help of DM robot mine laying and the lizard coming in from the other side, the privs were being slowly reduced.

Then Loner does what is smart and comes in to lay webs from cloaked MCBR's

Rebel then was in trouble, but Fed agreed to refit ships because Loner back stabbed him (he says).

Fleet getting refitted, but still losing to combined enemy forces. 10-15 ships in Fed hands including only refinery and he decides to drop.

He dropped. My drop was a knee jerk reaction, yes, but mostly recognizes the end is inevitable for the rebel without a third of my fleet and no fuel production .

Thanks for the recap Tom and DM.


I'll be honest, ya'll aren't selling it as a great position to fill. :) Rebels (without beams on carriers) with a third of the fleet in Fed control under pressure from Birds, Crystals and Pirates. Yikes!! (Even more so for me, considering my availability moving into the Summer.)


But it sounds like *IF* there is a Fed replacement who wants to maintain that partnership, it could be doable.... so if you find the Fed player, I can give serious thought to taking the Rebel position.

I make no promises though - I just hate it when sectors are changed due to droppers....

Everyone who has played against me knows that backstabbing or betrayal is not in mind. I have lost games before doing anything like that. It was the previous Federation player (Seveiht) who did that and it will be obvious.
