The Wargamer is going to be setting up some Ladders and offering tournaments for Titans of Steel Warring Suns. I would expect something to be announced in the next two weeks.

[QUOTE]Originally posted by Thorgrim
[B]Peztor, as soon as you enter MONEY and/or SKILL, the hq will tag the team as special.

Michael, for 25k, hire the first jock and set his leadership and business to 90. This guy stays home. The next 4 will not have to waste ODPs on either leadership or business, and will get the full advantages of being hired by a leader with 90% leadership. They'll have better other skills and/or attributes. Those 25k you lose are worth it - 1.5 mill, isn't it, initial funds?
Notice that this doesn't work for a custom team. [/B][/QUOTE]

You have something of a point. However, notice this: my rules say "No more than 4 JOCKS" not "No more than 4 TITANS". Thus, you can't hire one with 90 busness/leadership and then hire four more, as then you would have 5 jocks.

And hmm. I suppose that would work. OK, Peztor and Ducados are paired up now, and I'll go against Lobsteve. when can I catch you on?

I won my match against Coyote. I got lucky early on with some cover, and his team seemed to be plagued by some bad luck.

"Bad luck" hardly begins to describe it. My jocks were more dangerous to themselves and each other than to the enemy. They probably wouldn't have been able to simply walk across the map without blowing up their engines. And that was when we had the game working...

Well, 1.5 mill is enough to buy you 3 assaults with business 90%. And nothing stops you from hiring 5 jocks and then dismiss the 1st. ;)

With max tonnage of 500, though, you couldn't use three assaults. I still see your point, however.

I only said it's enough to *buy* 3 assaults. There's no limit on the number of titans your team can have ;)

when i was building my team, i found $1.5 million to be more than enough for what i needed. in fact, my team has enough left over to buy an extra assault, if i wanted too. i only used just under $1 million.

I, too, found 1.5 mil to be more than enough. Though, I didn't have as much left as Firestorm.

It all depends how much you decide to put into the business skill. The jacked up prices will mulch that 1.5 away pretty quickly I tell you what.

Actually, once people are eliminated (or simply willing to share), it would be pretty cool for them to post their tourney teams. I, for one, am interested in seeing the route everyone took to try for the win, and I'll definitely post my team if I get eliminated (or even if I win...heh.). Obviously people don't want to give away their teams before they fight, but afterwards...

And firestorm advances to round two.

A lot of this victory was luck and terrain, and some careful use of tactics. That and a few mistakes on his part, mainly in where he applied his firepower and when.

Hey, has the tournament died? .... Something told me this might happen.... I'd really like to finish this tourny, if I could. I know WS is out, and a lot of peeps are probably kiling 1.4 off their drives, but those of you who entered the tourny, think you can hold off until after you're eliminated before doing that?

As a reminder, here's how it stands (bold are victors):

[B]Firestorm[/B] vs Lobsteve
[B]Tarendelcymir[/B] vs Coyote 27
Ducados vs Peztor
[B]Prince Corrin[/B] vs Rosary

If there's an error, let me know, or if you want to drop out, again, let me know.

I have my team ready. Just not enough time at this moment to battle.

Ducados:
Cuando tengas tu equipo deja un mensaje por aquí o en el ICQ con las fechas y horas que te convengan e intentaré arreglarlo.

i've gotten word from Prince Corrin that Rosary has become a non-combatant. Thus, I'm going to give the Prince a bye, provided he plays a round 1 loser (currently Lobsteve and Coyote27). He doesn't need to win, but it would probably bode poorly if he lost... So you two, don't delete your teams yet...

Actually, here's what I'm thinking. The winner of the game advances to Round 2. so i'm giving Lobsteve or Coyote27 a second chance, or Pez or Ducados if they do their game relatively soon. (However, i'll make sure that in Round 2 you aren't matched with the same person you were in Round 1.)

I won't be able to play at least until the 25th. Do what you think is the best.

*sigh* Unless you all want to make this a WS tournament, (in which I won't be able to participate), methinks this tournament is dead......
When I get back to california and buy WS, maybe I'll try again. i learned a little bit from this, so maybe the next one will be better.

Until then, good luck y'all! Have fun with WS (lucky b******s)!

I´m usually online often, but I´m on vacation now, and away from home. I have my team already done, and I´ll be back next monday.
So it´s up to you, guys, to keep this tournament going.
I still haven´t WS, but i´ll try to get it as soon as posible.

I wouldn't say i'm non-combatant. I'm very much a TOSWS player and have played Hetzer a few times. I hope to see the rest of you online.
