How did you beat NEC2 with that fleet? Challenge 4616655. Actually I think quite a few of you skipped that fleet entirely.

I'm not sure what you mean? 1-13 has a huge amount of fighter defense.

Na I look at the record man, you guys haven't even played that one....... Follick also reposted it as 4617911, and you guys skipped that also.

So yeah, you guys gotta beat either 4616655 or 4617911. It was labeled as NEC 2 and now NEC 1-1. And no I don't mean the NEC 1-2 that Ramcat posted.

That said, I skipped the Ramcat one since I thought Follick one was the NEC2.

So include both of those from now on?

Okay, you are right. NEC2 kicks my ass. I didn't read the note on ramcat's 1-2.

Anyway 1-14 up. It's a Tribe Pulse Rush. I remember to beat Ramcat's 1-2 this time. Tribe just makes this so much easier.

Okay, I modified 1-13 so that it beats everything. Do you want me to replace it or just keep going? Also, 1-8 and 1-11 may be invalid as well. Darn tribe fighters!

Just keep going. Since I miss Ramcat's and I think ZGeneral miss Follick's. I mean if you want you can replace it....... I am too sick of looking at that swarm fleet to do anything else to it.

Besides 14 is already up.

Actually, this is why I think the game needs to automate some of these challenges/tournament ideas. But if NEC 1 is now too hard to beat, please post an NEC 4, or 5. Also, if you don't want it to become a fighter spam, limit the number of fighter hulls via the map and it won't be able to get out of hand.

Actually I want to thank all who played NEC 1. I have had the darndest time beating them all. I have been busy on another project and haven't had much time. When I get the other project done, I'll be back.

Thanks also to Joecairo for starting NEC 3.

Frigate only NEC?

Fighter only NEC - who really has the unbeatable fighters?

Cruiser only NEC?

Guys the ideas are endless....

This NEC is messed up now.
actually the idea of NEC was very fun at the begining but as the series got longer it got toooo time consuming.
I pesonally can not afford this much of time + let alone the disapointment and rage when u get stuck in 1 out of 10 that prevents you to post 11!!!

can we have a new challenges with some new rule (as suggested in other posts)
I suggest:
1) must beat last 4
2) last 3 must be unique races
3) a player must use unique races in his last 3 challenges (what do u think? we have enough races to enforce this)

This one would be more challening without having to go through all the previous challenges like NEC

How about 1 where you can skip any one of your choice by 5, skip 2 by 10, and so on? So while difficulty still goes up you are less likely to get stuck on 1 of them.

You begin to understand the amount of time and effort it took to make a SAC sweeper like SAC-27 or SAC-46 from the first SAC.

Ooooh I do - cause when I first was playing SAC I thought you had to beat all the proceeding fleets.
