Me being a douche again. And no me announcing that I am a douche should not have the affect of making me less of a douche, you're absolutely right. =P
I don't know why you have me that close to you but ok. unless the scale is 1 inch for 5000 km, then your a bit off. I'm allied with NTC now, so it's not like I had I was out in timbuktu with you guys. I started at least a thousand of kilometers in front of you and have smaller ships that don't have to dodge as much or take hits as much, just kinda fit through the gaps ('cept the carrier, but even it is initially faster than your big old bruiser).
As far as the mines go... anywhere you see black instead of the white of an asteroid, there are mines. It's a defensive field, not a trap that I just now laid. The ones I am carrying are simply the ones that were going to be far enough to your left and right that they wouldn't track so I am moving them in closer.
The asteroid field is also a lot more dense that you seem to realize. All asteroid fields are. A result of both gravity and electromagnetic forces.
Also sending out strikecraft in an asteroid field may seem like a good idea because they are small, but the electromagnetic interference in a field means that they fly almost solely on visual, lacking sophisticated tracking systems (unless yours happen to have them), and a fist sized asteroid could destroy a strikecraft. Just a note for next time and why I didn't send my strikecraft out.
I don't know. I was just thinking because I have a lot of work to do and what not at the uni, and no offense but I don't see this RP lasting. Part of that coming to fruition would be if I left and then there was only 4 players around, 3 of them on the same side. I'm just completely disillusioned with this one. I also can't stop handing out random corrections to people, and that has got to be annoying to the other guys (see above), sorry about that but my mouth (fingers?) just won't quit.
