I've got one, too. Playing MkIII on defense. (Hopefully not too slowly.)

I just logged on and noticed they also had an update. Long-term PBEM-style games would be good for testing some of the mentioned fixes.

And dwalend, if we're playing together, we both can't roll worth a damn.

Yep. That was me. "There's something wrong with our bloody ships today."

I usually plan for one shot in four landing cover for bad luck. Normally I'll smugly scoff at blaming bad luck for bad maneuver, but after I started keeping a tally I had two shots land of 23 fired in the clash. I've got no tactic or strategy for that on a tan map.

The defense *should* have an advantage in MkIII Defending. Did you decide not to take the time to wipe out my missile tanks and MkIII because none of the guns were working? I was expecting to be annihilated after you drove through the craters at M3. Excellent job driving that MkV.

(And mercifully my guns started working again on the way out, so I didn't spend the whole week chasing you back to the south edge of the map. I was worried that three turns' work was going to take 12 turns. )

Up for another game? I should start looking for one at about 10:30 am EST.

All shots missing favors the attacker. Once I was close enough to the CP that I could make it even if you hit 1/3 of the time I did the sprint. I'd rather get a marginal win than try for a complete victory and get smashed.

The thought of having to traverse the map at one hex per turn was one I dreaded too, so I'm happy it worked out that way.

Yes. At the exteam, eventually that MkV can just run over the CP.

I gave up on the CP at about six hexes, guaranteeing that end. You'd done more damage to your own treads ramming my HVYs. At 4 hexes to go I finally started landing shots again. But at that point I didn't have a big enough broadside to go through 38 treads in two turns, even if I was hitting 2 of 3 shots.

I've been on since maybe 10:15. Let me try bouncing Steam...

... Nothing for 12 minutes.

Did you get a game? Else we've found another bug.

I did, but I think it was a few hours later. Against JJsomething.

Possibly we should start a thread logging the hours we're signed in.

Is anyone looking for a game today? I waited overnight, then while getting the kids to school and me back - maybe 11:30 PM to 9:30 AM.

I'm back to waiting now (10:45 AM).

... 3 pm. No game. I gave up around 4:30.

I checked one last time around 11:30 pm and picked up a game.

I'm sitting out until the next release. We sent a massive bug report from our last game. We both had fun but the buggy state problems made for a bit of a fiasco.
