Who's the best player on this forum?

Just curious as to what you all think (and wanted a new thread about the actual game rather than about some new game that you've made up). It's an open ended question and depends on your definitions of "player" and "on this forum". I decided not to do it as a poll as the format is too restrictive, and I would have had to make an initial judgement to narrow it down to 10, which I'm not really qualified to make.


I'll have to vote for Skythe as he's the only person I've played who has actually posted here. Although Mega is probably better I only have his reputation to go on (I'm not worthy to play him on the zone and wasn't unlucky enough to draw him in the tourneys I've played in!) and I suppose he's a ringer as he only started posting here this week after I lured him here.

So anyway, post away...

Well the only people I've played here are CorranSec, though he hasn't been here for a while, and Kimba.

And I'm better than them

Seriously though I don't know.

I think most of our best players (if we ever had any) have left by now...

As for me, I'm sure everybody could beat me (well, maybe not DMUK, but still).

I'm disappointed - where's all the arrogant egotistical posturing that I hoped to stir up? You're all too reasonable. Imagine the intense flame wars which would ensue from a similar post on the GiRL forums...

Anyway, wouldn't it be fun to have a competition so we can actually find out? We could have grudge matches to settle arguments between certain people who hate each other. We could even have a team challenge - purists vs EU fans. What do you think?

What if we don't fall into either category: the people who play the game cause its a good RTS, with the whole SW stuff as an added bonus. I dont give a crap whether GL thinks that the Gungans didn't specifically ride on a certain animal, as long as the game works and is well balanced and well thought out, Im fine.

EDIT: I dont think many of you were around long enough to remember the effects of the last grudge match on these forums (i'd check like page 7-9 of the last dreaded gunship thread for a refresher)

I did a bit of reading of the Gunship thread(s) the other day in preparation for my design of the Galactic Republic. Now that was a good war.

Purist vs EUist war... now that would be fun. To cater for Sith we'd have to have a third faction: Indifferentist.
I would of course command the Purists, and I'd suggest Phreak take control of the EUists, and of course Sith for the Indifferentists. Unfortunately the Purists would probably lose the battle, as I'd insist on only using canonical units, putting us at a slight disadvantage

i USED to be very good... then my hard drive slowed down and made it a bit of a pain to play games on the zone as my screen/game would freeze for a second or so every now and then... once i fix that i'll be back! but that entails buying a new HD and also adding a little more RAM for sh*ts and giggles..

Beaten by two easy comps? That's not something I'd be double posting about

Have any other Purists tried playing a game with only canon units? It's quite fun. Of course you can only do it with certain civs, because you need a Worker and some form of AA, so that excludes Gungans, Wookiees and Naboo.

I suppose purists would just have to be confeds, then it should all work out (as long as no-one resigned cos the hailfire droid refused to shoot ground units!). I'm only a moderate purist so I'd be happy to use anything, but maybe that would disqualify me?

Actually purists can be the following:

Confeds: they get pretty much everything, although it doesn't necessarily function the same way as the movies. Confeds are also the only civ who gets their Cannon.

Empire: They get a fair bit though you have to rely on TIE Fighters for Anti-Air purposes.

Rebels: Again you need to rely on Air for Anti-Air purposes, but that is not a problem at all for Rebels. They get no Mechs or Heavys, though.

Trade Federation: They get most things, but again with the reliance on Droid Starfighters.

Republic: They get most things, though it's a bit of a stretch since their Worker is actually the Waitress droid from Dexter's Diner.

The rest you can't do because:

Naboo: Their worker is not Canon.

Gungans: Their worker is not Canon and they have no Canonical units that can shoot Air.

Wookiees: Your army would consist entirely of Troopers.

The Imperial worker is a bit dubious as well. IIRC the only ASP 7 is in ANH special edition at Mos Eisley. I don't think we see any of them working for the empire.

As for the Rebs: you'd better be very good at trooper rushing, cos you'll die in T3 without mechs or heavies.

And I don't think I'd fancy playing Empire without pummels or artillery...

That's true about the ASP-7, though we don't really know that it isn't working for the Empire.

I rarely use pummels and artillery with the Empire, though I'm not the best player around...

Lol. Always use artillery, you must.

I wish we could really do a fight like this...but the world isn't flat...

Since most of us haven't played in ages, we'll have a huge bunch of noobs fighting each others well except for a few but for the sake of a fair game we'll put them aside.

Yeah, artillery is the best general purpose weapon. It's not particularly good against any one thing, but it's not particulary bad at anything either. It can be destroyed very quickly by mounties (if they get near it) but doesn't take much damage from other things.

Pummels are the only viable way to quickly take down fortresses or CCs in T3. You can get a CC with art or even massed mounties, but it takes longer, costs more and you have to send in more units to counter defenders.

BTW if you're confed, reeks are the best thing to use against turrets.

Yea but reeks aint available until T3 which is kinda a waste since hardly anyone uses the animals with the confed civ.

Artillary is one of the best units in the game they can crush mechs when massed and slaughter entire groups of troops with ease any successful army in the game will have a few artillary in it.

Ohh and for all us gamers/multiplayers in the forums we don't care about what civ we fight with cause they all the same anyways and we still kick ass just bonuses and 1 unique unit per civ is the only difference ohh and a few less techs which we all work around.

Now that vostok mentioned the confed cannon I finally remembered where I saw it , confed cannon is a large step since it definately did not have that purpose in the movie and we didnt really see it for long enough to see what it fully looked like.

The gungan worker is a design that was gonna be used for the gungan species but wasn't so the designers used it for this game instead so its now the gungan worker.

Frozted - actually there's a number of things that were designed for the movies but didn't get used, then ended up in SWGB. The Gungan Worker is correct, but also the Gungan Fighter (it was actually designed for The Empire Strikes Back, then they eventually used it in Attack of the Clones on Kamino!) and the Trade Federation and Naboo Advanced Fighters were alternate designs as well. I think that's what I like the most... it's as close to Canon as possible!

I think it's nice that they dug up stuff like that. It's nice to see an alternate star wars dimension(non EU might I say).

Skythe - i think you missed the point. The creature we see flying out of, then into, the waves on Kamino was originally planned as a flying creature native to Bespin.

Then, when Ep1 was being planned, that creature was going to be the Gungan Fighter, but it was decided that that was silly. Finally, the creature was included as a native of Kamino in Ep2.

As Windu said, the Aiwha as it is now called was originally going to be some sort of native creature of Bespin, that people would be flying around on for some reason or other. If you have a look at the old book of Ralph McQuarrie's art, which came out around the early nineties I believe, it's got a painting by him of an Aiwha flying through the clouds of Bespin. Interestingly this book also has art depicting Alderaan, and since it seems likely Alderaan will be an Episode III planet, I wonder whether they'll use some of his designs?

and for the nonpurists, EU maniacs like me, I believe in the YJK series, there are flying creatures that look like and are described as Aiwhas. So in the end, they were on Bespin.

And as for the best player on the forums, I think we should set up a tournament thingy for the forum

Wow a tourney...

geez...

I can't get to T3 under 20mins anymore!!!

Hmm, a tournament, I like the idea. But how could it work? Unfortunately the Time Zones pose trouble... yet with careful planning I suppose it could be done...

Yea, with planning it could be done. Maybe start the first eliminations by time zones, and then find a way to work around the time zone thing. Or we can just set it up and have matches whenever possible...

Also, DMUK is still an M+ at the zone right? he can get us permission to use the Tourny rooms.

I quite like this idea, Phreak. I have no experience with computer game tournaments, so I don't really know how they work or anything, though despite that I'd like to do what I can to help organise the whole thing. If no one else wants to run it, someone could tell me what I need to do and I'll do it.

I think that a tourney would be cool, especially the whole elimination by time zone thing, cause the only good player here in my time zone (that I know of) is pbguy. Doubt that DMUK will grant us access to the tourney rooms though. He really seems like he wants ot keep his M+ separate from his moderating of a SWGB forum, cause it could jeopordize his position.

This is true, but I think direct IP connection might be the best way to do things instead of the Zone. Not sure though, what do others think?
