USA

Image
The three USA soldiers, knowing their rifles are not enough to penetrate the thick TTSJ tank armor, instead aim for its main gun, and successfully disable it.

Immortals

Image
The Immortal phalanxes eliminate the remaining Trattorian soldiers and S1 drones.

Image
Thanks to an amazing sprint roll, the other Phalanx squad and the Sigma Shard join up as they head towards the USA infantry.

Image
Meanwhile the legionnaire with the hard drive continues sprinting away from the battlefield.

Image
The Sigma Shard leaps into the air, aiming his halberd straight into the Trattorian Laplace tank's barrel.

Image
Unfortunately he misses (failed feat), landing and eviscerating one of his own troops.

TTSJs

Image
The TTSJ tank chugs full speed ahead at the Trattorian tank. Also it tries to shoot it with its secondary guns, but the bullets barely dent the latter.

Trattoria

Image

Image
They are the panzer elite, born to compete, never retreat (ghost division)

The tank rams through the Phalanx wall, killing 4 Legionnaires and the Optio. Warhead manages to bail out of the way.

Image
To add insult to injury, the Trattorian tank knocks off 2 hit points from the TTSJ tank.

Immortals + TTSJs

Image
The Immortal Phalanxes fire on the remaining USA troops.

Image

Image
USA eliminated.

Image
The other Phalanx clambers on top of the Trattorian drone tank, and aims his rifle point-blank at the missile rack.

Inhaling one final time, he bellows at the top of his lungs, in an act of faceless bravery, "IMMORTALIS!"

Image
The explosion rocks the Trattorian tank, knocking half of its HP off in one action (3 out of 8 HP remaining).

Image
The TTSJ tank then rams its Trattorian counterpart, knocking off another hit point (2 out of 8 HP remaining).

Image
The Sigma Warhead Shard then attacks the tank with his OTC, but fails to do damage.

Image
In a fiery rage, he flips it over in frustration.

Image
The Legionnaire with the hard drive continues sprinting.

Image
What is it with Scratch's luck this turn?

Image
At this point, with the only opposition being a heavily damaged, flipped over Trattorian tank several human-scale feet away, I think the hard drive is safely in Immortal possession.

Immortal + TTSJ victory.

Is it just me or do the Immortals basically win 90% of the Chat Battles that Colette hosts?

Out of 11 chat battles I've hosted that had the Immortals, they lost 4 of them and won 7 of them (really 3.5 and 7.5, since in one of them the Immortals failed their objective but the Sigma Shard achieved his individual one). So they win more often than they lose, but it's not 90%. Operation Glass Leviathan was a notable defeat for them.

I think there are a few reasons behind the Immortals' good track record. Scratch usually plays them and he's a good commander, and the Phalanx shields are actually noticeably effective.

So what happens? Do people just forget that shooting directly at the shields is a terrible idea?
