Winter Has Arrived Turn 5

Postby Colette » Sat Apr 14, 2012 10:05 pm

Trattorians
Image
The Trattorian fleet readies itself for some of the most mentally-grueling shots it will have ever taken.

Image
Slowly, the turrets rotate towards the Siri loyalists, the captains of the ships wishing it didn’t have to turn out this way.

Image
And in a sick twist of fate, Trattorian fires on Trattorian.

Praetorians
Image
The destroyed husk of the Space Oddity and the Life on Mars volley their remaining weapons at the Avalonians.

Image
They’re too far away though, and most of the turrets miss, sparing the worst for the Avalonians.

Image
The frigates mop up any survivors from the Bavarian forward fighter squadron.

Image
The result.

RIN
Image
The cavalry arrive, and the RIN reinforcements are here to save the day!

Image
Deckhand: Come you idiot, it’s time to abandon ship!
Admiral Ashley: No, the time has come for my ship, and I will go down with it. Have a wonderful life.

She gets out a drink and quietly sits down.

“Damn, just when I thought I would survive to be in colette’s real-life forum battle.”

Image
The glass shatters and the bridge of the Trattorians’ flagship is blown out.

Image
The RIN further pounds a destroyer into tiny ABS chunks.

Image
A cruiser suffers the same fate.

Akkadians
Image
The boarding pods and torpedoes scream faster towards their destinations, but damn, space is a big place.

Image
Akkadian frigates continue charging with their Avalonian allies, guns blazing.

Image
They manage to critically damage a frigate.

Image
Meanwhile those pesky fighters and gunboats continue their assault on the AN forces.

Image
Damaging the another frigate. Despite it’s mangled look it actually received great armor rolls, 3 critical successes in a row.

Bavaria
Image
The last Bavarian cruiser decides it’s badass time and charges the Praetorians.

Image
The crew of the Life on Mars begins to seriously start fearing for their lives.

Avalonians
Image
The Avalonians are saddened to hear of the death of their leader Uther Pendragon, but are only further inspired to cause moar karnage.

Image
The left wing of the Space Oddity is shredded like tissue paper from the combined firepower of the Avalonians.

MASS
Image
MASS begins to split into two groups, formation alpha and formation beta. Formation alpha is picture here and attacks the Bavarian cruiser.

Image
Luckily for the Bavarians, while a lot of the structure is damaged most of the weapons remain functional.

Image
Formation beta sneaks behind the Praetorians...

Image
...and unlike the Trattorians, have no problems killing Siri loyalists.

Siri Loyalists
Image
The Siri Loyalists regroup from their losses.

Image
Their fighters are deployed and move up, but without any nearby Trattorians to dogfight they gang up on a cruiser instead.

Image
What I’ve noticed in this game are how effective fighters are. Really, they’re quite useful.

Image
The as-of-yet anonymous captain of the destroyer makes a private call to the captain of his Trattorian counterpart.

Image
After some hushed discussion, the Trattorian decides to turn traitor and support Siri an the Third Alliance.

Image
The Siri cruisers nearly completely destroy the left wing of the Space Oddity. Practically the only thing remaining is the engine.

Image
The destroyer handles the battleship, and while it causes minor damage to it structurally, it unleashes its true weapon: its EMP Death Cannons fry the electronics of the Life on Mars and collaterally disable the Space Oddity. While the damage can be fixed thanks to Praetoria’s talented engineers onboard, the two ships will be forced to be immobile and helpless next turn.

Now now now, Ex_Bajir, I know you’ve been waiting to be called on as a secret faction. Good things come to those who wait...

Secret Faction A Unlocked: Lady Vega II:

Captain Roberto: Fuck yeah time for more karnage everyone!

*Note the Inquistadores will fight for no one but themselves. They will kill men on both sides of the battle lines just for the lulz.

Do I just have my cruiser left or do I have my six fighter wing too?

Both your cruiser and the 6-fighter reserve wing.

So why exactly are my drop pods heading towards Trattorian space? Because I'm definitely tryna board the Life on Mars.

Have the gunboats focus on the Lady Vega and take it out real quick.

Have my frigates start wailing on the Trattorian frigates.

@IVhorseman: Because the drop pods should be facing at an angle toward Life on Mars, but the problem with LDD is that unless I put it on a turntable/stud it will have to face a cardinal direction. I'm well aware of where it's headed though.
