repost from OE Forums (prior to inevitable censorship)

Must say I enjoyed the Douglas Adams tribute crafted by PS in their latest act of aggression. Somewhat like:

Quote :

PROSSER: But Mr. Dent, the plans have been available in the local planning office for the last nine months!
ARTHUR: Yes, well, as soon as I heard, I went straight round to see them. You hadn’t gone out of your way to call attention to them, had you? I mean, like actually telling anybody.
PROSSER: The plans were on display—
ARTHUR: On display? I had to go down to the cellar to find them!
PROSSER: That’s the display department!
ARTHUR: With a flashlight.
PROSSER: The lights had probably gone out.
ARTHUR: So had the stairs.
PROSSER: But you found the notice, didn’t you?
ARTHUR: Yes, I did. It was "on display" in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying, "Beware of the Leopard."
There’s no point in acting all surprised about it. All the planning charts and demolition orders have been on display at your local planning department in Alpha Centauri for fifty of your Earth years so you’ve had plenty of time to lodge any formal complaints and its far too late to start making a fuss about it now.
[Louder yells of protest]
What do you mean you’ve never been to Alpha Centauri? Oh for heaven sake mankind it’s only four light years away you know! I’m sorry but if you can’t be bothered to take an interest in local affairs that’s your own regard. Energise the demolition beams! God I don’t know…apathetic bloody planet, I’ve no sympathy at all…

Now c'mon people, PS territorial rights follow very simple rules, feigned ignorance is no excuse:

Rule 1: By divine right, PS lay claim to any system that contains one or more moons. It does not matter whether or not they are settled - hands off, PS property.

Rule 2. Other factions are free to place SSs wherever they wish provided it is further than 3500 LY from every PS system including those from Rule 1

Rule 3. PS does, however, generously allow free settlement of Quadrant 5.

This is a war game, do you think ppl playing Warcraft, Starcraft complain
When their empire is destroyed?

The analogy above doesn't work for me, arthur dent lost a home Ateam lost a couple of space stations in a video game. Ateam knew the risks, waited till our colonies were the right size, Ateam made ships with guns and armor to defend our stations.

PS had more ships with more guns. Kudos.

I put critiques in the oe forum, but it wasn't about them using their better ships and guns to take our stations that is the game. This isn't cooperative Railroad Tycoon.

I question the knowledge base from which they devised better ships, I'm not a big fan of taunting in general and PS didn't show much honor on their word breaking multiple cease fires.

If Ateam wants to defeat their preverbal galaxy super hiway Ateam will have to show up with more guns.
