Greetings all - 

An assault was made upon MEGA forces and the MEGA forces lost.  Some of the details;

It was a WP assault

The attackers had about 400B tons 

The defender had 600B tons


The attackers won. This will certainly be a significant set back for MEGA as the following notable ships were destroyed in addition to others.

Along with the ships were 30+ Admirals and other such types that we hope to never see again.


This battle was many moons in the making and lasted 20 hours or so.  

Well fought MEGA, I wish you the best.  Games like this require combatants.

Hobknob did say it was a warp point assault so his side must have had insane numbers,  absolutely  insane, of gunboats and drones protecting them.  An attacking force with 100 billion in fighter bays and 100 billion in drone racks could carry 200 million Balrog gunboats and just the coherent beam damage vector on those would dish out nearly 80 trillion damage ( just one vector!!) they have 3. They probably had insane numbers of wild weasel drones protecting the gunboats so they could unleash unholy hell on the defenders. I suspect it was one huge battle wagon that launched the attack.

Greetings All,


This last battle was a WP assault through an E type WP so fleet sizes were limited to 125B tons each.  This limited the attackers total force to a maximum of 500B tons theoretical.  In reality there was only about 450B tons.  The defender had better than 600B tons and enjoyed the bottleneck of the WP so we used fighters and drones.  As you should be aware, all fighters and drones transit the WP with the first ship so with our first ship also went 200M + fighters and 80M+ drones ( I said before there were 160M but 1/2 of the expected drones didn't make it for some reason).   These fighters and drones then did the work of defeating the defenders while more ships transited the WP.  


As for tech, both sides enjoy all of the best weapons tech.  We all had best fighters, drones and direct fire weapons at our disposal.  The SFG's were also in play but figured little to the outcome.  They are hideously expensive to build and are only of limited utility.  If the situation merits they are still worth it but if not then they are just expensive.  


A devastator is just a weapon, nothing especially exciting.  It is not used much, in my view, since it costs more to build than many others.  However, once you get to be a certain size those considerations are not relevant any more and you build them just for variety.


For those keeping score this is the most recent in a series of battles involving MEGA and is most likely the last.  The battles have not all been one sided and between all the participants the losses have probably exceeded 1.5T tons of ships.  It has taken years to get this far, but I understand that this may be the last.  Evidently our opposition has fled the field, transferring assets to other positions.  

I could go on for some time about the tactics used and why and so forth, but I will suffice it to say that the results appear to have been exactly as the rules and Pete's clarification of the rules indicated it should work.  There was insufficient data to really dig into some aspects of the battle, but the results are what was anticipated and expected.  

Final totals for this battle 

MEGA   - lost 657,376,050,200 tons,  60,019,154 fighters and drones and 30+ admirals and such.

The rest of us, 4 total empires losses included  327M fighters/drones and some 55B tons of ships, ( the tonnage of the fighter/drones was in excess of 123B tons)


There you have it.
