Looks like Bob's going to be awkward. He is defending excellently and keeping his ships together rather than launching rash counter attacks. I am making progress but it's going to be slow.
Bob launched his counter offensive today. I'll neutralise his main fleet at Altais Mu, but he will successfully recapture Salm, which is the best world i've got off him so far. With a bit of luck i'll be recapturing it back within 12 hours. Bob is
I meant to blog this ages ago, but procrastinated heavily and have just stumbled across the notes I made at the time (nearly a year ago!!!!!).
I think game 2 highlighted the biggest weakness of the Neptune's Pride format which is a tipping point can be reached where the eventual victor is guaranteed, but the game will still take days/weeks to play out. For this reason I think lots of people lost interest towards the end (including me!)
In game we had Bursar, Honsou,
Looks like Boylee has moved against Seedy George. Which is good. The only thing I could see that could stand up to an alliance of PS and myself would have been a Seedy George + Boylee alliance. Now they're fighting I think that gifts either me or PS the game.
I've agreed a non aggression pact with George, which means I can polish off Sero's last world, and then start to move against Jeeva.

Got slightly worried that Sero was taking my invasion badly. He's clarified that he's role playing taking it badly. So that's alright then!
I think i've got the upper hand on Sero now. Yildun has flipped a couple of times, but I think i've got it now. I've moved some fleets around so now Sero's counter attack is walking into an ambush.
Postscript has polished off 3agle, and has a fleet of 180 odd ships around the galactic core.
Bit of an eventful day. Logged in this morning to see a fleet from The Sero descending on Bunda, in breach of our non aggression treaty. Not pleased so ping him an in game mail letting him know that! Then do some maths and evacuate some of the ships back to Al Kaphrah and Sirius leaving enough at Bunda to blunt Sero's fleet.
The fleet took Bunda as expected, then immediately turned for Denebola which is a bloody odd choice. Sero has no intel on Denebola

01:15 Confirmed Wondwi is heading for Maia. I hope Postscript logs in and sends his fleet as we've planned. Also spotted a Fletch fleet angling in after being sent packing by the
sero. It could also potentially hit Wondwi. I'll see in the morning.
A lot has happened today, though hardly any of it done by me. As predicted Wondwi is buggered. Postscript

These are my thoughts throughout the game. The first stage was the race for Maia... the planet at the centre of the Galaxy.
