Unless of course you had the bad luck of your sats being launched on the wrong side of the planet and being out of range. Sometimes there is nothing you can do.

2 missile platforms will always work before point defense is discovered and it makes your population happy to win the battle thereby increasing production.

True, but the weapons platforms will take damage and if they are destroyed you are back to being defenseless. The ideal would be both, but he didn't have time for that.

I guess the moral is, don't build only colonizers in the first turns if your opponent is starting right next door and is building frigates.

Well, I don't know if it's a record for PBW or not, and I am sure there have been TCP/IP games and hotseat games play more turns, but Thermo and I have played 40 turns today. That's a record for any PBW game I have ever been a part of.

I think it is safe to say that I will live to 50 turns, but 100 might be another story.

It will be a long game. Turn 25 and no first contact. We are probably as far away from each other as possible.

Are there any standings to report? Have any been posted yet? Question: Should we have a set of Maps that players can choose to play on? Having Planets in adjacent systems seems a bit to close. But I am all for quick games.

I think that random maps are better. That way you will never know what you are going to get, and will have to be prepared for every eventuality.

Random maps are good... Fryon's maps are better... But Custom maps designed for 2 players is best....
