Since storeylf and Krellex have confirmed their information I am starting their match. The requests for starting positions and turn 1 EAs have been sent to the ship captains.

storeylf will be starting at 0328 or within two hexes of that hex and is commanding an Andromedan Cobra.

Krellex will be starting at hex 4003 or within two hexes of that hex and is commanding a FRAX SDD.

Break condition was met and I am waiting on possible rebid. Game will advance once I have that.

I'm going to concede this game.

The breakpoint I just recieved is the first time I've actually sat down and looked at what I'm facing properly (not being too familiar with frax subs) and what I need to do. Hence I've only just spotted that I'm taking on a ship that, under the frigate war rules, is already winning by the point difference and can remain cloaked for the time limit, whilst shooting/launching at me.

Whilst it is still possible I can win, I need to score at least 1 burthrough whilst not taking any damage/burnthrough myself. My TRLs can just do a burnthrough every other turn (so 3 chances in total at a burnthrough) but with a small chance of success against a cloak,, but only the one on turn 6 will count as earlier ones will be repaired. and that multiplied by the chance of hitting a system that DC 2 can't repair makes it an even lower chance of my scoring any points.

I can see some of the other ships beating the sub without so much problem, but the cobra trades some firepower for andro panels/batteries which makes this a tedious and (given the time limit) bad matchup for it.

It's the sort of thing I'd play out face to face, as it would probably only take an hour and we could yabber whilst playing. I don't mind the matchup, that's just the way the cookie crumbles. But it's not the sort of game I want to play by PBEM for the next how ever many weeks waiting to get to turn 6 when the game will be decided by who gets a burnthrough.

Apologies to Krellex if that is a bit of a downer.

This battle is concluded with the Andromedan Cobra conceding the match. The Frax SDD captained by Krellex is the winner.

Points awarded:
Krellex (Frax SDD): 21 (25% of Cobra) + 5 (Declared Winner) + 5 (Battle Completion) = 31

storeylf (Andromedan Cobra): 5 (Battle Completion) = 5

Both captains are on stand by until round two.

Thank you both for participating!

Understood, Storeylf. I too, was a bit worried about how long this game might have taken to complete once I saw the matchup. Perhaps sometime we could run this on FCOL? Shocked Very Happy
