Game 53742: Chris1977, Gooey Blob in 'Cabin in the Woods'

The direct approach is what has worked for me in the past! But like I say that's usually because I've been up against residents who are trying to be sneaky rather than brazening it out, so there's been no need for sneakiness myself! I guess I should have been more alive (as it were) to the fact that your tactic was working and altered my own gameplay, rather than just assuming you'd ultimately be overwhelmed by my sheer numbers (which of course you weren't, because you were consistently effective in keeping those numbers down). In short, your lesson is learnt!

Game 53742: Chris1977, Gooey Blob in 'Cabin in the Woods'

You were very direct as in heading straight for my team and not using cover. Which to your credit is how a zombie would fight. Knives and one precious sword helped. I play for fun. Mostly I lose.

Game 53742: Chris1977, Gooey Blob in 'Cabin in the Woods'

Nope, no good came of that for the zombies...<br /><br />I&#39;ve played this mission several times as both the zombies and the residents. The &quot;strategy&quot; for the former, such as there is one, is just &quot;be relentless&quot;, but for some reason it had never occurred to me (nor anyone else I&#39;ve seen play that side, seemingly) how effective simply taking the fight to the former (as opposed to hiding/running away) could be for the latter. I can?t believe that you won every one of your hand-to-hand encounters, for example! Oh well, you&#39;ve taught me something valuable here - cheers. :-)

Steve, I think it would fun in this mission if Aliens could produce acid smoke for cover. Either when any alien dies or a very expensive AP spit. Maybe the spit limited to the Queen? The Alien side/s nearly always suffer the same fate of long distance sniping and losing.

Well, this is only going to end one way! I definitely made a couple of mistakes, but I don&#39;t think they would have changed the eventual outcome - I must concede that you are the Blobmeister (in fact, you can have an award to that effect!), which is why I (and all other potential comers, presumably) have fought shy of accepting that Blob Assassins game thus far...

Smart move blasting out a massive expanse for the cons to have to dash across from all directions! Oh well, at least I was able to get it down to one-on-one; I just had to hope that Deadlime was out of ammo (sadly for me, he wasn&#39;t). Right, that&#39;s one game apiece; best of three...?

Game 53713: Dijon_p, Chris1977 in 'Prison Riot'

Some seriously good luck towards the end there (autoshots miraculously on-target when your opp-fires weren&#39;t, etc.), but also sometimes what seems like the most obvious, knuckleheaded strategy (in this case, just rushing the exit en masse!) is worth a punt...<br /><br />Good game nevertheless; cheers.

No worries. :-) There&#39;s a 4-player Kill Frenzy that xeno has set up if you fancy joining that. It&#39;s one of these last-man-standing affairs that&#39;s usually entertainingly brutal, and as it&#39;s a practice game there&#39;s nothing to lose whatever the outcome...

Peter and I weren&#39;t able to capitalise on our advantage. Rabid and Socrates convincingly broke our serve so to speak in return and now it&#39;s all even again. I think it&#39;s 6 - 6 might be 7 - 7 but even so it&#39;s back to being tied, so Rabid and Socrates to attack.
Posted by xeno 41 days ago


Grenade underthrow

It may have done so, there was a square of wall next to where it landed but it wasn&#39;t in front just next to it and I did throw it straight. Could&#39;ve veered off very slightly to the left and rested against it. But I&#39;ve had a two underthrow plenty of times and three on the rare occasion. Never had a three overthrow but had a two a few times before.

Grenade underthrow

Just curious to anyone&#39;s worst grenade throw. I just had one where it was a four square underthrow, I don&#39;t believe I&#39;ve ever had one that bad. It was thrown so short it blew the idiot up.

Game 53590: Chris1977, Ethereal Slayer in 'Rebelstar Alien Hordes'

Well played. Full disclosure: getting outside AQAP and then taking up sniping positions is a tactic that&#39;s worked in the past against less experienced opponents, but I should have known you&#39;d find a way round it! Also, the execution wasn&#39;t great; in particular, I don&#39;t know what I was thinking with that smoke - it ended up helping you far more than it did me! Still, 13 out of 18 ain&#39;t bad...it just ain&#39;t quite good enough...

Looks like this has nearly run its course...what were you saying about this one being impossible for the attackers to win? Good thing you were up against me, eh...? ;-)<br /><br />Obviously my tactic of hiding my three starting clones in cupboards (in the hope of sneaking up behind you once battle had commenced) fell flat on its face, but either way with hindsight I should have done more to repel your attack from the right - once your guys were within nerve-gas-lobbing distance of the cloning chamber I was severely hobbled.<br /><br />Fancy &quot;Impregnator&quot; next, in a similar vein? Don&#39;t think I&#39;ve had the pleasure of that one&#39;s acquaintance...
