I can see the old tag bug or whatever they call it is still there. When 2 players hit figs exactly at the same time it disconnects both players.

Just say you're testing an attack bug, don't take out the player's pods. As if it isn't hard enough to get people to come run turns, you're turning them away with poor sportsmanship. What's the point here D? That you can win an unlimted turn stock game?

This isn't about playing the game, it's about trying stuff out to see if we can break it. So later when we do play, it will be as bug free as possible, that's why I've set up 4 charactors to run on a day I can look in on things.

When are you going out of town? Hehe.. <EG>

Don't get upset. I'll be going out of town on Sunday night and you can test your invasion skills while I'm not at the keys. It's a game and killing is part of Tradewars. They only way you are going to learn to play the game is to be able to compete in combat situations and learn to stay alive when you are the underdog. I came into the game as a blue 5 days late and eliminated several reds that had been cashing for days. Give it a go, the game is all yours now.

And yet again you are so far from the point of this exercise it's scary. I DO NOT play unlims. You DO NOT have to teach me anything about combat. I'm simply running trading scripts and doing goofy stuff to try to break the game and find bugs.

What upsets me is that you keep killing off anyone who comes to test. This is a test game to stress. If you want PvP, ask me and we'll meet and whack at each other, but NO #SD#, that's counter productive to the point of this exercise.

This is not smack talk. Please take your *arguing* elsewhere.
