Was nice seeing a fairly decent amount of Players in the Tourneys this year Pax especially, sure hope it doesnt ever get deleted - Papa.John you did a great job on there . /salute.
Id personally like to congratulate Chico.X on giving me a migraine from stress for the last 4 days, he played a blinding game and had a cracking stratedgy - it was a very close call right up until the end.
Totally agree with KUKA .. The Champs are the most epic 3 weeks in Starport and this year brought all different levels of gameplay to the game from despair to determination.
On that note i would also like too thank all that helped me on there - you all did a great job and the determination you showed enabled the win - some came from Pax Champs ( so were already exhausted ) and some were Players i hadnt seen in quite some time - to all of you i am truly thankful.
/salute you all
grats to champs.
id just like to mention that Chico.x had 6-7 helpers while D-Tox had 13 helpers.
But yeah, like you said D-Tox, the one who wins champs is the one with highest helpers number!
I'm sick of the subtle shots you guys have been taking at tox - and if you don't know what I mean then you're an idiot and I know you arent one
from day one chico begged to tox to not invade him - sort of silly in the champs, it's competition and everyone should be able to fight and still be friends - happens every year without any major problems. What a major coincidence that Chico solbuilt then and had all his helpers just filling cols with people from sol. Solbuilding of course is naturally risky as you can be found and invaded very easily - chico begging for peace was a calculated move to improve his strategy, not one to protect a friendship, or w/e he says it was. It was a smart idea, I give him that - just dont get sore cause it didn't pay off in the end. chico even told tox that if he invaded him he wasn't speaking to him ever again. So don't complain. The only person tox had to do a 'favor' for was CC, when he helped him last year, but he wasn't even able to be on much cause he was busy. Me, Kuka, MJS, Altair, and every other random person that came and helped for a day or two at a time did so on their own accord - cause they thought tox deserved it. As KUKA says, until someone wins champs by buying their helpers, they earned the help, and deserve to win.
One side overwhelmed another with its numbers, but also coordination of its numbers, as well as tactics. Chico's crew only took two cols that were never retaken by us, whilst we capped well over 100k of his that he never got back. A zoundz they were invading got it's bio 3 sold at the last second, so you had to waste fuel barging in resources/people and cash rushing the bio3. That col in particular was 2 hops from a port, and we had biggi suiciding into the mines outside of it - they constantly had to be replaced and sol prices were expensive as hug. Combine all that and it amounts to a pyrrhic victory, one that chico never recovered from.
There's really no logic, no excuse behind your bitterness - whatever reason you can come up with for losing is probably something that happens every champs and is not a cause for bitterness. On that note what exactly is it about tox's game that makes him so undeserving in the eyes of chico's side? That's a serious question - and I know at least half of them are reading this thread. sure tox's numbers advantage got him the victory, but champs have been that way for 6 years now. You all know this, so don't whine about it. The accusations (mainly by wit) that tox just paid all the people to help him are entirely laughable as well - especially if you look at the names he had on his side. Chico side is assuming what they want to be true in order to feel better about themselves - and that to me is what's sad, not that they're just upset about losing.
Losing always leaves a bitter taste - I think we can all agree. So I hope chico/wit/blur/you won't stay sour about these champs. perhaps ya'll have a right to be a bit pissed - thought it doesn't impress anyone who witnessed the sour grapes and certainly doesn't show any class - in 09 when KUKA trapped and killed the empire they were graceful in defeat.
Frustration from losing is natural - you say good game, no hard feelings, move on - but finger pointing, pouting, and making excuses is just childish, and I was disappointed from your side. 3 days before it was over, when Tox was still down in followers and exp, he said to chico that he'd wish him a good game and no hard feelings no matter who one - and now chico's not talking to him.
