Epic Ship Battles?
« on: November 21, 2014, 10:54:32 am »
Since this is a tight community, can you recall the name of a ship you had a particularly tough time fighting? Anyone have a truly epic story about them fighting off other crews? I can recall a time where I went up against a Goldfish called "Charizard". As you probably guessed, he used flamethrowers all over the place. The reason the battles with that crew were so epic that one time, was because he would use the clouds for cover, then bust out of nowhere on the left side and toast my ship. We would then spiral around each other, blasting away, as my entire ship burned. We would then try to out maneuver each other and things got crazy. There would be rammings, surprise attacks, balloon failures and constant shouting. I don't recall which team won, but I do remember it being really close and stressful.

The best battle of all time. Gwth vs. Cake.
R&D Invitationals.
Has a video game made you sweat before?
Has a video game made you so relived to have won your hands are shaking?
100% most stressful video game experience of all time.

Watch it. As kirk said, down to the last explosive shot.
Not even the casters know what's going on.

It was a pleasure to be a part of, truly.

Holy Crap! I am so happy that was all recorded! Man, you guys pulled that win out last minute. Best part, was the sandwich your ships did. PINCER ATTACK!

I rarely ever re-watch my own casts because nyeeeeeeeeeh who wants to hear their own voice, but I did with those three matches a couple of days ago.

Other than noticing that I use the word "slam" entirely way too much... still such fuzzies from watching them again. Probably the most fun set of matches I've casted in a long time.

oh god, our first Aerodrome match - Clan/WoD/TBB versus the Ryders.  the Ryders took a Galleon, Mobula and Junker and yet managed to fly in formation throughout the match.  @.@  and they just picked us off, one by one from a far distance...I bow to them.

as far as epic matches go, this one man.  <3



the point was passed back and forth throughout the match, we were at 588 when they took it for the last time and honestly we thought they had it in the bag when we somehow?? turned it around with 6 seconds left to spare.  Nietzsche had already called GG before we took the point back too XD

My favourite games have to be these:

This was the match that made Galleons viable for competitive again, as a gunner this match made me so happy :P

Both the videos in this playlist are completely awesome, the last time Rydr ever played agaisnt Gwth :(

This is probably the best though (the first one I mean) was so close right till the end :P

Me and leuosi dancing the dance of death with two squids together as our respective teammates were pretty much useless. So it came down to not only who would beat who in a one on one duel, but who would wear down the other more so the teammate would actually get a luck shot in.

The match itself lasted at least an hour, now the score itself looks bad but we were the underdogs and everyone played so well and so hard, the initial first capture fight took over ten minutes! I've never seen a point go uncapped for so long!
Then came the grueling battle to get the point, every charge we would win the skirmish and neutralise the point but always loose out on capturing it!
It was so much fun and so damn frustrating, I loved it!
