Who is Roland? Someone get booted off a team? What about Comet? lol


Don't know who Roland or Chicken Lips are, Comet came on and cby'd shortly after. Briana is a player from my server, out of her league here, but will shortly start getting lessons.

Again, congratulations Corp 1. We may have been ill prepared, but that should not overshadow how well you played this tournament.


Thank you, Good Game! Your corp hung in there despite all odds and kept cashing and building as long as you could. With edits like this, you really do need time to practice and study the ships, planets and other oddities like the way SK setup the universe, that was really challenging. We hope to meet you again next year.

So, now for the unmasking:

Rock Stars:

Doors - Xanos
Jimi Hendrix - Cruncher
Who - Crosby
Pink Floyd - TWDeign
Def Leppard - Micro
kOrn - BlackHawk aka Bud

Did you really believe sing was playing? He hasn't been around in years.


Congrats corp 1. I still maintain Def Leopard and K0Rn do not have a place on a team of Rock Stars. I'm not talking about the players just their choice in names.

I ran into Sing not long ago, don't recall what name he's using now. He was on SK's server testing scripts. Once TW is in your blood, you can't walk away entirely.

Do not try and bend the spoon. That’s impossible.
Instead… only try to realize there is no spoon.

OK, is there any hope for future tournaments?

I get it now, SK and Micro created this edit with assist from Xanos.

SK hosts, Micro and Xanos play. No wonder one one else wanted to play.

Honestly, SK and Micro did a great job on the edit. Micro really didn't play, he was a bot, didn't give us any clues about the edit. I found the "easter egg" the first day in practice.

I think Xanos only designed one ship and one planet.

Or... has the time of the "Bot Wars" finally come to an end and players prefer to be at the keys playing their own turns now?

Why didn't more players turn out or come early to practice?

Probably not, the player base is not what it once was. When was the last tournament that had more then a couple of teams? 10 years ago we had pretty good turnouts, 15 years ago it was even better. I can also remember at those times these very forums and a few others were very busy, now we can go days with out a new reply/topic.

Bot's are nice, I'm not going to get in to the reasons but if nothing else it helps out with the amount of time you really need to be at keys, say you have family things going on, well your team can still cash or command you to colo or whatever they need. If you want to be at keys and use your turns you can set the bot up for that. I really see no downside, other then it somewhat levels the playing field.

I think with HHT the edits have always been unique. The odd little twists can turn people off to it. I'm actually looking forward to play in the Subz tournament. I think it would also be nice to have some big turns games, or even *gasp* some quick paced death matches.

At one time we were trying or did (memory sucks) at trying to get a monthly low turns games going. I think that would be fun to do something like that.
