  1. The evo is about finding what you want it to help you with since it has a myriad buffs and uses. I have used it in a lot of ways to get the most of other troops. I normally use to improve the odds of tiger drops and hacking support. Its caleidoscope and reboot supportware are great at stopping enemy hacks and the reroll may give you the edge you need in a quantronic face to face. My meta doesnt make use of many camo infiltrators so i havent had the oportunity to try satlock at its fullest, although its probably great vs ariadna. Overclock gets a bit wasted on our repeater rems as our weapons are normally better used in supressive fire in the reactive turn. Team pro is great if you want your links to stay together after an unlucky roll or a team leader suicide run. Its baggage is also pretty usefull whn you need points near your deployment to secure areas and to restock crazykoalas/madtraps or panzerfausts. I would recomend you run one and find where it can help you the most. Like all units it takes a bit of tinkering to get the most out of it.
  2. You are wasting a lot SWC, i concur with the spiitfire dao fei and also add that you might consider changing your liutenant to the hmg version or hacker in order to give supportware to your husong and make the zhanshi the liutenant then,
  3. Its usefull but you have to get the odds in your favor. I recomend you bring an evo hacker since it allows you to reroll a hacking attempt with a command token which will allow you to have another chance to hit them if they fail their reset. I also recomend the guilang forward observer as his surprise shot, camo and high will give you a pretty good chance to mark them. You also need to think about who and with what are you gonna make use of spec fire or guided the best platform for specfire is the wuming but its also the most expensive. The other options are cheaper on points but have higher SWC cost so its a tradeoff. Guidded on the other hand its pretty easy as there is only one platform in the entire army.
  4. Agreed, they all are acussing each other while doing the exact same thing themselves. By the conditions preset the factions with the most points will be the overall winner however what that means in terms of fluff is still up in the air. Since points probably represent power and clout it will probably mean that whoever obtained the most will bully 012 into granting flamia to them regardless of who controlled what in the end.
  5. I dont understand all the conspiracy talk, the winning conditions were up day one. Three zones or highest points. All this manipulation talk sounds more like sour grapes from not achieving your plans than anything else.
  6. What i would like from future campaigns are strategic bonus from holding areas. Better yet if they can be linked from multisector control. It can be as easy as flat bonus to victory points to really elaborate like holding the tracking station and power plant allows you to impede air travel to other factions limiting their deployment options.
  7. Okay explain to me how the appearance of a zone that no one had invested one game in, derailed the invasion of a zone not even related to it. If your only answer is psychological, then im sorry but its just an excuse you are hiding behind and looking at the data you decided to ignore it anyway so it didnt even split your active efforts. Else explain why ariadna haqq pano and aleph managed to rally and capture zones when their oportunity presented itself.
  8. Agreed you suceded no one denies that. However blaming aranda on all your setbacks is a bit childish. Yes some players quitted after that punch but every time a faction had setbacks that made players quit, others like yourself and me kept fighting so in the end if you couldnt keep a coherent effort thats on you. They didnt take your wins away or blocked the theater so if you rallied instead of disbabd you might as well captured it for good . I agree with a lot of your statements about the campaign, however i resent the acussation that scorch and yourself implied of the campaign being rigged as i have seen my faction struggle hard for what little sucess it has attained and i think everyone would be insulted if you implied the sane for any of their factions struggles.
  9. Well i second, all of his assertions of the Yu jing general strategy. If it doesnt fit your narrative we are sorry we arent the villains you wanted us to be. Everyone got setbacks in the campaign but only nomads and haqquislam seem to still use them as excuses and conspiracys against them. Lets have a quick recap of the campaign, pano and nomads came out swinging. Pano then came to a screeching halt at antela after realizing they couldnt take it easily. Nomads were busy in their Faux alliance with haquislam and lead the campaign at that point. Then came yu jings assault at narooma and we were barely capable of breaking their defense dispite having a larger pool of players. Then came the nomad assault on zhurong, which caught us with our pants down and forced us to pretty much abandon narooma and return to zhurong. This is the moment when antela opened and nomads started getting bitter and started with the conspiracy theories. As all invasions before their's got dragged into a stalemate and slowly yu jing rose as the victor with a slight lead on overall points. Then came the alliances which as we were then painted as the villain mainly by our lead in points resulted in no one but aleph willing to ally us. We chose to do it even if that meant sharing control of something we fought tooth and nail for. Luckily it was the right choice in the end as the rumored nomad haqq alliance in tianxiang actually came out in zhurong. Then came what we thought would be the final stalemate, only broken by the coding bugs and the release of new zones. In this final form we got thwarted at onza by haqq and our own allies and threatened in overall points by a renergized pano final push that has since claimed two zones, deus vulting all around. So tell us again how the game is rigged for hyperpowers? Or is it that since you didnt get your way now everything is wrong?
  10. If they couldnt fight one hyperpower, imagine fighting both. Guess its night-night for nomads.
  11. Congrats, hopefully there wont be a last minute counter offensive. Seems humanity achieved its overall objective.
  12. The representative from Haqquislam is manipulating information for his own gain. There is only one area controlled by the combined army and coincidentally its an an area that was entrusted to them at the end of the neocolonial wars by the 0-12 resolution something that does not apply to the 0-12 headquarters and zhurong power plant, which means that the backstabbers of humanity are actually haquislam, the nomads and ariadna who are the only ones which have continued to invade a zone that has not been granted to them by O-12, which falls pretty much inline with their battlefield tactics. Aleph and Yu ying have an understanding but either party is free to leave at any moment. Aleph probably calculated the most likely outcome of breaking the alliance which is the nomads erasing any and all aleph programs from every system and subsystem and cutting power to every node and aleph instalation on the island. OOC: I sometimes dont have my cell phone to take pictures and as you noted since when i take them at a higher resolution, they cant be uploaded for some reason when i do so they are blurry. Also its rumored there will be a purging of substandard reports, to which every faction has a few. Although there are probably people without cameras when they play and lazy to write extensive reports, so i dont know if would be fair to disregard their contribution.
  13. It might influence fluff that way, but there isnt any certainty, for all we know the winner gets all or everyone loses since no one managed to capture 3 sectors. Either way,i wish you good luck in your endeavors, kicking the combined army is always a good goal.
  14. It also depends on what victory in the campaign means, are the other powers expelled, destroyed, forced to bend the knee? Does it all remain the same and everyone keeps what they fought for?
  15. Seems Pano has also taken Mount Skillion and Agoge shall soon fall PanO are the best situated forces in aranda so they are the ones with the best means to take out the combined there since a second round of aliances is apparently not in the cards any force except pano and ariadna would be wasting their time going there. Yu Jing will maintain pressure on Onza considering the continued terrorist assaullt of the nomad/haquislam alliance on the power plant but if haqquislam were to break their alliance with the nomads Yu jing would reconsider its stance.
