Happy 4th of July?
« on: July 04, 2014, 09:08:25 am »
The thread title is the name of a room I started and ran a couple of games in.

I opened it up to try out a very... uhhh... "special" Ship.



It was my first time ever piloting a Galleon. And my second. And third. It was also one of my first times in a non-novice match, which was required in order for this glorious brilliance to be an option.

In each battle, my crew was quite willing to play along with my madness as I commanded "EVERYONE TO THE LOWER DECK! MAN THE GUNS! ALL OF THEM!" and had us fire dual Hwacha salvoes out of each side of the ship while moving at full speed at the start of the match. I tried not to aim for our teammates. I'm hoping my crew did the same. :-\

We did immediately proceed to play sensibly once the "introduction" was over, and surprisingly, we did rather well once we got into battle. We managed to get through one match without a single death, thanks to a couple of rather good engineers and an impressive Pyramidion crew backing us up. Thank you [Cake] guys!

Salute going your way, you played marvellously, even when it was our turn to kill you.

Hope to see you around more :)

Thank you very much for the compliment. And it was a pleasure fighting both alongside and against you.

I was planning to edit this into my previous post, but apparently there's a time limit on doing so.



I guess that's what happens when you play with fireworks :D

I don't know about "brutally destroyed". You were extremely good at not dying.

Did you enjoy the show? It's just a shame I mised the timing on every double volley when I tried to take screenshots. Seeing 40 rockets impacting across a Junker's hull was quite beautiful.

...You forgot the part in that match when you and your ally brutally killed me, with me as queso's ally.

Yes we did!

Focused fire is OP. Everything fired at one target.

As for today... Thanks to SapphireSage, Imagine and allison for being a wonderful crew. Honourable mention to Puddi (from the same clan as allison) for being the first human crew member to NOT join in the festivities while on board. It was only a little disappointing, and joining in with some Carousel fire while the other two were manning Hwachas redeemed you.

It was nice meeting everyone in those games, I know I had a lot of fun, and my crew appeared to (mostly) agree.
