Well, we have until the 15th now to complete. Otherwise, let's call it a draw instead of a loss for you.

Hope the honeymoon never ends.

Mojo, the mighty Federation commander defeats the insolent Klingon commander, Krellex. My C7 got torn to shreds, while I was able to barely scratch his shield and land one measly internal on the Tokyo. In other words, the Klingons got their posteriors handed to them on a latinum platter.

Sorry, I was very busy all the time (still at work right now Smile ), I concede because eric, I insist, have crippled a lot more my ship than myself.

I would like to play the next tournament, if I can spare time.

  ----------       ------        --------------        -------------------

       1           Hydran             6.50                    16.00
       2            Lyran             6.00                    21.00
       3            Gorn              5.00                    15.00
       4           Tholian            4.50                    12.00

       7         Federation           2.50                    12.00
       8           Klingon            1.33                    13.67


I have excluded the Seltorians from the empire rankings because they were never really tested in battle.

I thank everyone for their great sportsmanship and Garrett for his assistance in running the tournament.

It was pleasure to conduct this tournament.

Thanks,

Jim

I'm not that surprised by the fed performance. The first online tourney was heading the same way as well, they were 1 win and 5 losses at the point that tourney ended.

The Feds were a 1.05 handicap because?.. they were seen as good? or popular? or both?

Just because an empire can be 'competitive' when played by top players doesn't mean they are necessarily balanced (in a tourney sense) for those who are not top competitive players. The Feds are of course probably the single most 'indentifiable' empire and probably most popular at least in part for that reason. With enough people playing it's not inconceivable that Feds could be both the worst performing empire and the one that wins the tourney.

It is something to bear in mind when handicapping empires - popularity and performance are not the same thing, handicapping an empire might simply increase the gulf between top competitive players (who generally play the empires that appear competitive at a given adjustment) and players who may be just wanting to play their favourite (handicapped) empires.

What happened? I didn't listen to Commodore Doyle until round #4...
Then I did better.

I'm going to fly feds AGAIN in FCOL#3, since I'm slowly getting better at them.

I had a really great discussion with Commodore Doyle on Federation Tactics, and he sent me some notes... I didn't "get it" / understand the details of what he told me until about round #3 or round #4, and then I finally starting to get some success with photons.

It's now my opinion, like everything else, the more you practice something, the better you get at it. And following some basic federation tactics from a player who is much, much, much more skilled than I am, helped me to start to do better.
