I posted this challenge, asking people to play it, then launch counter-challenges of their own the same map. I was hoping to take the results and compile some sort of statistics.
The idea is to see if you can win this battle on the first attempt; then issue your own challenge, and see how many other people can beat your challenge on the first attempt, then compile a record of which player is the best at offering, and responding under these conditions.
With 27,000 points and 500 pilots, virtually any force can be created. So, it’s totally wide open.
I’d encourage anyone wanting to participate in this, to engage in some challenge action, and create a posting on this thread where you can edit from time to time, and update your personal statistics.
So, it’s sort of an open-ended, ongoing challenge, with an interest in gathering data as to which race might be the best, or which fleet compositions and orders combinations are the most successfull overall. And to see which player can amass the best personal winning percentage in challenge 1st attempts (a ‘challenge 1st attempt’ meaning the initial time a challenge is played).
My initial thought here is that, in offering a challenge, a player will have to give consideration to anti-fighter measures. The temptation for making a fighter swarm when accepting a challenge will be great. I wanted to leave it open for any possible configuration of ships, and a force made entirely of the 54-point imperial rocket fighter would fill out the roster of 500 pilots at 27,000 points. So, anything goes!
