Subject: The Crew Targeting Fleet Challenge   PostPosted: Thu Nov 29, 2018 4:52 pm Reply with quote

The Challenge:
This fleet challenge involves making a 60 point fleet that excels at killing, capturing, or immobilizing your opponent's crew. The more damaging a fleet is to an opponent's crew the higher it will score. Standard rules still apply, this is not a death match.

Rules:
-Only one fleet will be allowed per player.
-Fleets must be pure nations.
-Game pieces from Return to Savage Shores are allowed.
-Custom game pieces are not allowed.

Fleet Scoring:
-I will pick the best fleet based on creativity and effectiveness.

More Stuff:
-Post a link to your fleet in this thread.
-If you make use of RtSS items: Since none of the RtSS items are in the database, you'll have to use existing items as proxies in the fleet on MT. Choose a similar ship/crew/etc. with the same nationality and point cost, and in your fleet description list exactly which RtSS item will replace it. Also, be sure to list the stats of all RtSS items you use so readers won't have to dig for them.
-Edits after posting are okay if there are rules issues or other serious problems; but try to avoid any drastic changes.
-If you will be participating in the challenge, feel free to make a post about it here in this thread.
-Please post any questions you have in this thread.

Prizes:
-Bragging rights.
-The opportunity to create the next Fleet Challenge.

Deadlines:
-Submit your fleet no later than Sunday, December 16th.

Good luck and have fun!

American guns shutting it down

Are we to assume this is a deathmatch setup with no gold?

Sorry, this should not be a deathmatch game. Regular game rules apply.

That makes it very hard to do with 40 pts. Time to redesign my idea heh.

Well, since only two members have responded saying they're participating in the challenge and both of you mentioned wanting more points to work with; are you guys ok with me increasing the total points for the fleet to 60 points? I would obviously allow edits or resubmissions.

An entry appears, out from the depths!

Sorry, I didn't throw my hat into the ring sooner, but I wasn't sure if I'd find the time and didn't want to commit to a fleet challenge I wouldn't do, again. I went ahead and used the 60pt limit since it seemed decided on? But if its not, then no hard feelings. This fleet only really worked with the higher limit anyways.

I basically had a fleet for Spain, France, England, and Pirates lol. Almost went with an Inquisitor/San Cris behemoth, but liked this one better.

All right, I'll take a look at these tonight and pick a winner. If anyone still wants to post a fleet, get it in soon!

Another tough competition to judge. Lots of things to consider on this one. It was close but Volt yet again, ekes out the win. I would definitely like to see these fleets go up against each other in real life. Especially the matchup between Harbinger and Kettering.

wow thanks!

I don't think I am going to start a new one, especially given the lack of participation in these last two. But, if these forums survive into the new year, maybe I will!

Volt, since the forum is still around; do you think you'll try starting another challenge?
