NEC 5 with a twist

Postby zGeneral » Mon Oct 11, 2010 9:14 pm

May I start a new NEC 5

Rules:
Basic NEC rules + can skip 1 in 5
each player must play all 8 races - NO duplication, i.e. once u use a race, u can not use it again. so be wise!.

Winning Condition:
The first player to spend all his 8 races is the WINNER (thanks THC)

This NEC is going to be very stratigic and require a lot of thinking.
so I have started with my Empire Race that I do not know what to do with, so I got one out of the way ;-)

search it by map, it starts by 00_NEC5

hope u like it

How does the "skip 1 in 5 rule work?"

I have a fleet that runs the gauntlet, but it needed to skip 2 (#3 and #6). Can it be posted as 5-7?

BTW - it's an Empire fleet, and it takes on 5-2 without any issue. ;)

welcome to NEC 5
u can not skip the last challenge, u have to beat it i am afraid

skipping rule is as follows:
u can skip 1 in every group of 5
so skipping #3 is fine
skipping #6 would have been ok if it was not the last one.

can you send it to me as a retaliation, I would like to see it

good luck

Even better - I'll post 5-7. Had to skip 5-3 and 5-4.

Mind you, this one doesn't do as well against 5-2 as the prior incarnation, which, because I'm a bonehead about making ship adjustments w/out backing up, I can't quickly recreate.
