Net melee video: Left-turn only, enemy selects your fleet

Post by Gekko » Sat Feb 25, 2012 7:30 pm

I decided to post this video as the game was among the oddest ones I've had. We decided to play a game with Oldlaptop on #uqm-arena last night and ended up using some bizarre rules:

1. Balance mod
2. Enemy selects your fleet
3. Ships cannot turn right

Not the best performance by Oldlaptop, but was quite fun.

You know... it'd be interesting if there was a ship that shot lil thingies out like the Vux ship does but instead of slowing you down it took out either left or right turning. But not both cuz that would suck.

This was me - I had trouble with my right-arrow finger straying back on to the arrow key. I'm pretty sure I managed to catch it each time before it actually affected anything, but clearly I'll have to pull the dratted thing off first next time :)
