Hopklis Nur Turn 3

Since AlphaLurker has not sent in orders for the Battle Droids I will be giving his spot away to someone more consistent. Another option would be that the droids malfunctioned and are no longer in operation.

AlphaLurker, if you send orders, confirm in this thread that they were sent.

If no one else who doesn't already have a place in the battle volunteers, I can take over the droids.

I'll give it a few hours (it's 7:30 am here). If no one else takes them then they're yours.

I actually applaud this idea because the militia sucked ass and the droids are epic game-breakers =)

The droids are good, yes, but gamebreaking, I wouldn't say so. I would say what puts the good guys in this match at such a disadvantage is their positioning, Warhead and his troops have the high ground in this match. However, neither side knows exactly what is going to come out of that temple yet. Somehow, I don't think it is going to be friendly.

Also, looking back over the sign-up topic, the droids are alright stat-wise, but certainly not better than what the side of good/Avalon have to field and, the droids don't have any heavy weapons either. I think that the droids will prove necessary to make this an interesting battle, as they are the bulk of Warhead's army here.

We also haven't had any of the good ranged troops get into range of the droids yet. This is actually fairly well balanced, but the irregulars chose to rush towards the side of the hill with the ranged kill bots, rather than the side defended by the ninja, who have no long-range options, which is why they were ineffective. Of course, however, seeing them all get shot down was pretty awesome, and they aren't out of the game yet. I, at least would like to the see battle to it's conclusion, without outside factors eliminating an entire faction with no carnage.

The commander droid could malfunction so badly it causes him to explode and take the others with him.

I think it would be much more amusing if the droids malfunctioned randomly. Moving in random directions, shooting random targets...

And I agree with this idea. If you guys are cool with it, then so am I.

This is for two reasons.

6. I'm taking fire off of the important guys.
7. The only good victory is a pyrrhic victory.

Well, I heavily disagree. I don't think the entire outcome of a battle should change just because someone didn't show up to post orders.

However, this being brikwars, I think that Semaj should make a "what I say goes roll" for it. Should it succeed, they malfunction, if not, I or someone else can take over. Regardless, I will stand by whatever Semaj decides, as it is his forum battle, and he is going through a lot of trouble to bring it to us.

Yes. Also, as most of Semaj's battles are mainly story-based, I don't think it would be too bad if we kinda know that Warhead's feces are going to lose.

Warhead's forces may or may not lose.

I'm going to roll an imaginary die in my head. If I win, then what I say goes.

Here comes the roll.... and its a B! Great! LORD MERCAT now controls the Battle Droids.

Send me your orders and I'll get the battle up tomorrow. Thanks for being champs!
