    Well this was actually really fun, and I hope we can do this again sometime. Sundays seem to be inconvinient, since some people might need to go to work the following morning. So some Saturday in the future? 8pm was a good time, even though Pariah was late...

    If people are around later today we could get a game going! Otherwise I'd agree that the best time for it is Saturdays!

    Any chance of a group game tomorrow? Me and Fuus have been playing a bit with our fire extinguishers, but the game is much more shallow than with a full cooperating crew.

    I should be around from 9pm onward. WE NEED TO USE THE GALLEON. I had a go in it yesterday, having 4 big guns is crazy fun / firepower.

    Nah, the Pyramideon is much more effective. Still has loads of guns though

    This game looks rather tempting.

    Get it. The more the merrier and eventually we should be able to form THE BIT-TECH BATTLE FLEET

    most games are 2 ships vs 2. Some are 3 vs 3 though

    You know, having 2 AI engineers actually counters that quite well. You don't do a lot of damage to other ships however...

    The Pyramideon has the advantage of the two gun pods high up. It is really difficult to see, and then shoot at, them. Thus those guns rarely get damaged, but at the right angle they can completely toast an enemy ship balloon (assuming flamethrowers up there). But yes, the Goldfish with two flamers was quite destructive. :D

    I think that the goldfish worked well due to a rather inept enemy team (that never teamed up against us 2v1).

    However due to the relatively low damage output of the flamers the game did last about 50 mins

    TL;DR we have a mumble channel so this game is legit.
