Your pod drifts carefully and slowly through the system of Refuge, putting in great effort to avoid detection by the capital fleet. It has remained largely motionless since your arrival, but your pod detects movement further in. It drifts closer to the forested world where the hive ship orbits to get a clearer picture, and you see a number of shuttles moving in a low orbit. It is nothing new, and your pod begins to dismiss the activity when you feel a pang of mental anguish in your mind.It is not from the Obsidian Queen. Her anger continues to simmer from her fleets, but you feel it is hive. It is there only for a moment, and an instant later, an object erupts from the thick, foggy clouds and detonates beneath a corvettes as it attempts to skim the atmosphere. Its hull begins to break up, and the ship crumbles as it drifts downward into the misty clouds. Several other ships fire their railguns at where the object was fired from, and the clouds part for a moment with several orbs of light.There is silence again.

>>42346621Your drones have finished their scouting of the seemingly endless corridors of the Builder's vast space structure. While nearly all of the technologies are obsolete to your astounding technological leaps, you do find a select few items of interest. In addition, you have learned much from studying the structure itself, and your thinkers propose a more detailed architectural survey, something you have yet to have the chance to do with the mega-structures of human space.Cont.

>>42346621Hey OP I found probably one of the best soundtracks to listen to while I read your questhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4rpvyBWMJ40
>>42346712Awesome job with that map QD! Glad you managed to get it to work
was that a friendly relative?
>>42346768Only one way to find out.
>>42346768No.It's probably an orphaned Thinker.
>>42346768We can at least have the pod send out telepathic friendly messages before we send in the fleet. Even if the Union detects the, it'll be a moot point if the fleet does, indeed, show up.
>>42346768I hope so. We're rescuing it whatever it was.
>>42346712[New Research Unlocked]>Space city constructionMediumBy examining the details of how such a massive structure is formed and stabilized within its orbit, as well as techniques on laying out life support and logistical systems on a scale far larger then any ship, you should eventually be able to design and build space born stationary structures to rival even the works of the Builder herself.>Psionic sensorsSlowThis is a strange project indeed, and a concept that should not work at first assumption. It utilizes a basic concept of quantum mechanics, that being that the future of a particle effects it present state, and applies it to a mass scale. The hypothesis is a sensor that does not sense a target, but predicts it. The project is still in its infancy, however, and there is hardly any work finished beyond some basic mathematics and theories.>Tachyonic insulatorsMediumYou did not find any thinker alive that was working on this strange project, with all of them nearby fossilized long ago. You did, however, find a small sample of prototype material which seems to absorb tachyonic particles and then disperse them in random directions, scrambling psionic signals and making them appear as universal background noise.>Add Space city construction>Add Psionic sensors>Add Tachyonic insulators>Add all to research

So we making a space city near Leeland or somewhere else?

>>42346935Are you talking bout some BLAM! tier dyson sphere shit there son? Cause I think we might make the hivestar concept obsolete.
>>42346830>Add all to researchYou ponder the nature of the events in Refuge. Your rival queen's anger rises sharply, but it does not hold her attention for long. You feel her rage largely satisfied by the fields of cooling glass being quickly covered by the clouds, and her fleet resumes its stance.Waiting.Your pod continues to watch, more closely now."Watching things..." It thinks. "They are loud.

>>42346971>OtherLet's attack Reprieve and lure her forces away from Refuge.We wanted Reprieve back anyway.

>>42346971>>Send a fleet to attack the Obsidian Queen's forces in Refuge (write in)5 missile ambush fleetsto ambush them, followed soon after by5 heavy fleets15 light fleets
how many suicide pods do we have now again?
>>42346971Wait, I thought you said it was hive, but it wasn't the Obsidian Queen. But now we know it is, in fact, the Obsidian Queen? I'm a bit confused.I think we should send in a significant stealth fleet now, and be prepared to send a larger force if it becomes necessary.
>>42346971>>Load a pod with drones and attempt to land on the surface (write in drones)You mean, stealthily, from a direction the OQ can't see?Three Ghost Beetles, two Wasps, and 40 Flies can fit in a pod, right?Let's see what's what under OQ's nose.
>>42347010It meant that it was from a Hive, no mention of who's but it definitely wasnt the OQs nor was it background noise.
>>42347010The Black Bitch is in orbit; it was one of her corvettes that got shot down.
Tell Theseus to also send a fleet to back us up He also wants some new research projects right?
>>42346621i'm not sure i really get what happened here, english isn't my first language, was it a ship or a missile that exploded on the corvette?
>>42347035No, let's keep it to ourselves and sell those things to him later. We can take her.But research is irreplaceable.
>>42347035This we may need Theseus and Heretic to help us out on this one. Heretic might be interested in the space city
>>42347010Whatever is on the surface sounded like a command, and it felt like hive life. It was not the obsidian queen, you can feel sure of that.>>42347016Yes. It wouldn't be a sure thing, but a pod with a few drones could potentially land beneath the clouds, much like how you inserted your clones on Gemini.>>42347038Unidentified. It looked like a weapon of some sort, but you didn't get a good look at it.
>>42347045I was thinking of just giving him some of the BB fleet wreckage and combat data
I'm fucking psyched for the space cities. One step closer to a glorious Dyson sphere Death Star.
>>42347048>Yes. It wouldn't be a sure thing, but a pod with a few drones could potentially land beneath the clouds, much like how you inserted your clones on Gemini.Oh that sounds good.We can meet up with whatever lost Thinker on the surface before mounting a full rescue.
>>42346971Whatever we send, it needs to be overwhelming firepower and we need to send it ASAP!
>>42346991You know, we have the forces to pull this off, with 3 or more battleships and escorts bringing attention to Reprieve, and when they're distracted, have one battleship and missile ambush fleets whack the ships at Refuge.
>>42347063i'm psyched about the rip drive, is no one else? we can redirect asteroids into an enemy fleet or planet, or we could open it in a start and burn the enemy away, or as close to a black hole as we can get
>>42346971>Send a fleet to attack the Obsidian Queen's forces in Refuge (write in)>5 Heavy Battle Fleets>10 Light Fleets>5 Missile Ambush Fleets>Many boarding swarms
>>42347091Unless there's a terrible cost.Like exotic matter required in its production.Or a long cooldown time between uses of the rip drive.Not to mention probably a big size minimum, battleships only, but that at least isn't so bad.
>>42347091The Rip Drive is honestly hax, as hax as an Aircraft Carrier was in WW2 if my understanding of how it works is correct.
>>42347108Well, we know it will require a void crystal to function at least.
>>42347108it was a hole in space where anything could enter both ways>>42347111we already have a lot of other hax stuff and we are outnumbered so it would even the playing field
>>42347111Great analogy, that's basically Heretic's MO in space combat
>>42347121Nothing anywhere said that.
>the Rip Drivehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6esSwCQtzP8
>>42347141I mean, Heretic stated they were a result of combining hive tech with relics, so I just assumed he meant a void crystal by that.
>>42347161if he meant "an embodiment of pure evil we cannot trust and have never dared to use ever since the rebellion," he would probably have said that.
>>42347080Let's do it then.
>>42347080Has the OQ even stationed any of her forces in Reprieve? There's nothing of any value for her there, and last I remember there was nothing going on in that system that didn't involve smoldering husks of dead ships.
>>42347175'Relic' could very well mean that to him.'Heretic' and 'Researcher' are synonymous, remember.
>>42346971>Send a fleet to attack the Obsidian Queen's forces in RefugeSeems to be the consensus.>Send 10 Heavy Battle Fleet,10 Light Fleets, and 5 Missile Ambush Fleets>5 missile ambush fleets to ambush them, followed soon after by 5 heavy fleets and 15 light fleets>5 Heavy Battle Fleets, 10 Light Fleets, and 5 Missile Ambush Fleets>Other (write in)Just to elaborate, since you are the first queen you know of to develop dedicated surface to orbit defenses, the standard of all hives before you, as far as you are aware, is to utilize picket fleets for defense. You can expect your rival queen to be no different, meaning she does not use small patrols to bolster a planet's defense, the fleet is the planet's defense, and is much more stationary. Decoy attacks would be less effective then if they were used against other factions that rely on small patrols and defensive structures.
>>42347263>Send 10 Heavy Battle Fleet,10 Light Fleets, and 5 Missile Ambush Fleets
>>42347263>>5 Heavy Battle Fleets, 10 Light Fleets, and 5 Missile Ambush FleetsHold the rest in reserve in case she tries anything funny.

>>42347263>>5 missile ambush fleets to ambush them, followed soon after by 5 heavy fleets and 15 light fleetsThe entire point of an ambush fleet is to ambush it's target. Let it do that.
>>42347263>5 missile ambush fleets to ambush them, followed soon after by 5 heavy fleets and 15 light fleets
Dang, things have escalated!Have we set the happening-o-meter to the appropriate levels?Also a thought: Can we send a covert ops team to hit planetside while the spaceships wage space war?

>>42347366All of the titles.Also Zadornov is a surname of a comedian that was popular some time ago so I'm picturing the commandant as him and it's hilarious.
>>42347366Maybe black ops or research division
>>42347301>5 missile ambush fleets to ambush them, followed soon after by 5 heavy fleets and 15 light fleetsThis sounds like a solid plan. Overwhelming firepower against the OQ's forces present, while keeping a sizable force in reserve.

>>42347612The system is rimmed by a thick reflective debris field that hampers sensor data and impedes navigation. The giant fractured chunks and collections of ship parts creates a twisting gyre of gravitation, impeding any attempt to blink directly into the system. The strange properties of the debris field makes for an obvious defense, but it will impede approaching reinforcements in the same way, forcing them to risk missing their blink destination, or blinking outside the rim and moving in under sub-light speeds.It will be a cage match, for better or worse.Your pod's location within the gyre should help your calculations, but there is still a chance of your fleet missing the mark. By comparison, if your fleet enters the system through the debris field you may loose some of the element of surprise, but you your ships are sure to arrive, and will be able to engage at long range with speed on their side.>Have your ambush fleets attempt to blink directly on top of the enemy fleet while your other fleets close in from long range>Have your entire armada attempt to blink into close range of the enemy fleet>Have your entire armada move in from long range>Other (write in)

Okay at this point all you're doing is pushing the thread closer to auto sage. Our auto high rolls are over, no point in cluttering thread with mediocre rolls.
Rolled 31 (1d100)>>42348045It seems that our good fortune has passed.
Yeah, let's not auto-sage the thread.

>>42348014>This is the thread where /tg/ has officially lost it's mind. Congratulations QD you broke us.Look man, HQQ is incredibly awesome, but if you want the sheer crit rolling insanity, go read Evo Quest and Ogre Civ Quest in the archives.
>>42348068Yeah Blorp was just cursed
You guys do know that even with this successful opening she's just going to port over her peeps from the nearest systems right? IIRC, we already knew she keeps reserve forces for conflicts close to important areas to counterstrike sudden issues, like this one.
Rolled 77 (1d100)>>42348053We can make new thread for mother!
>>42348057You're not very bright are you?
>>42348078Yes, but considering the debris in the system this is fine. Any reinforcements have to coem from afar and we can work with this. Especially since we're brinding in so many ships.And consider how close Drift is, we can call in Heretic and he'll be in within like a minute. Same for Unity tbh.
>>42348088>>42348098I love these
>>42348078>she's just going to port over her peeps from the nearest systems right?Not as much as you'd think.>the fleet is the planet's defense, and is much more stationary. Decoy attacks would be less effectiveRemember.Since there is no distinction between this being a decoy attack and the real attack, since if you could tell the difference it wouldn't be a very good decoy, the amount of reinforcements sent is not going to be overwhelming.
>>42347994Actually thinks showing anyone more then necessary about our military capabilities and tactics is smart. You sir are a full blown moron and should kill yourself at the earliest possibility. Pic related. >>42348000Station change as do allies. Every bit of Intel they can get on our military is potentially deadly in the future.
>>42348104That is why I said we should patch them in. They have personal beefs with the OQ same as us.Heretic since she's a crystal fuckpuppet and Unity because she was a bad neighbor
Not that we'll need either, like, it's not as if we didn't bring enough ponies to the rodeo guys. We have no less than 2,150 ships and 480 smallcraft in system.

>>42347781Your pod can hardly contain itself. A passing corvette moves close to investigate the whispers of excitement and overwhelming joy. The pod vibrates with anticipation as your fleet charges their drives.A star appears within the system, for just a moment. The vibrant radiation of your fleet of over eight hundred ships is enough to scorch several shuttles, their hulls evaporating into clouds of particulate and ash in less than an instant."Kill! Kill all the things for Mother!" They shout, forgetting your training regarding their volume. It reverberates over the system, and for a moment, the enemy fleet is confused. For a moment.In the next moment, a wall of ferrous slugs and directed energy slams into the nearest ships like a super nova ripping through a solar sail. You hear an echo of their minds begin to register the events unfolding, and their hulls are torn open and scattered as shrapnel. The space behind the first salvo is filled with swarm drones. They swerve through the scattering debris like expanding tendrils feeling through the debris for survivors. You feel their thoughts racing with blood lust as they eviscerate the enemy swarms and vent the hulls of surviving ships.A mist of blood fills your view, and your ships continue their charge. A corvette is evaporated in an instant as it fails in its attempt to put down flak against your swarms, the ships it was charged to protect disappearing beneath a carpet of swarm fighters like a wounded animal in a piranha feeding frenzy. They turn away and accelerate to the next ship, leaving a smoldering husk behind.cont.
>>42348164>>42348133>>42348155Shhh, shhhhh, no shitposting now.Now is time for space wars.
>>42348133I don't even know where to start

>>42348177>"Kill! Kill all the things for Mother!"I love our children so very, very much.
There are lot of happenings going onSomeone hold me
>>42348177Now the thing is, the Hive Ship or any capitals is almost definitely, absolutely, going to have an advanced relay of the OQ's onboard.With the boarding swarms we sent, this may be our chance to jam one.Let's see how far one crit carries us. We'll still have to roll again to reach the heart of a 6 kilometer capital ship while disabling its blink drive.
Thinking about it, we haven't been actively violent in a minute, have we?This must be cathartic as hell.

>>42348250>"Sup, auntie? You mad?"
>>42348236BuddyFriendLet me learn you a thing.Unity and Heretic are perhaps the ONLY two factions that will not betray us for their own ends. Their ends are completely lined up with ours.Unity is just as big a research junkie as us and the Research shall never endWe gave Heretic meaning again. We brought back the race of its creators to give them a chance at redemption.Please sit your ass down and shut the fuck up

>>42348177Our children are bloodthirsty as fuck.
>>42348177Your feel the minds of the enemy begin to organize from their disorientation, and the ships begin to fall back together around the Hive ship. It fires its railgun, and a slug the size of a gunship is sent meters from the hull of one of your battlecruisers and cutting a clean swath through the debris. The slug detonates against the front half of a frigate's wreckage, erupting into a white hot ball of superheated plasma. It dims slowly behind your fleet, casting a crimson radiance over the battle as corvettes silently vanish into ripples of light in the darkness.The enemy fleet regroups, and the Hive ship begins launching its own drones. Clouds of swarmers swirling over its hull like an ablative shield. It fires again, and the blow glances your lead ship, ricocheting off the edges of your Battlecruiser's shield. It dips by several kilometers, knocking off its aim as its own railgun slugs fly wide into the void of space. Its companions open their own volley, and pockmarks of white hot luminescence cascade over the Hive ship as impacts equivalent to atomic weapons ripple over its armor, glittering against the ebbing light of the setting star.Enemy casualties:3 Cruisers12 Frigates44 CorvettesYour casualties:None>Launch all missiles>Move in and attempt to disable to Hive ship to board>Continue to attack as the rest of your fleet closes in

>>42348325>>Continue to attack as the rest of your fleet closes inEnemy reinforcements will be incoming. We have no reason to believe we can get away with boarding a hive ship. Remember, we're hear to rescue a friendly queen and her forces. Maybe if we roll another 100 (or 3) it will turn out this is the OQ's personal flagship and that if we destroy it she dies. I doubt it though.
>>42348325>Move in and attempt to disable to Hive ship to board>Continue to attack as the rest of your fleet closes inTry to disable Hive ship to stop it from escaping, then finish the enemy fleet and only later board.>>42348376Would agree, but we need to make sure the valuable target won't escape..I am not sure but would it be possible to refit the captured ship? Or atleast save in cost to rebuild one...because we seriously need hive ship.
>>42348412>>42348413I figure the best thing we can take from this hive ship is maybe some void shards

Rolled 34 (1d100)>>42348570NEW THREAD FOR MOTHER
>>42348462You can see the wings begin to fold forward, and you can sense the rising cry of its drive as the Hive ship charges to blink away, but such a large craft takes a long time to charge, and you do not need a long time with the numbers you brought.You sense the frustration of the Obsidian Queen. Her rage offers a sense of schadenfreude as your ships close the distance."Thing is leaving. Mother says stay!"The ship's wings rupture as it is riddled with slugs and the energy of particle beams boils away the flesh. The muscles snap, and the tendons burn to ash. The wings snap back, sending burning flesh and flash-boiled blood scattering as they snap off and are sent tumbling away. The Hive ship screams in panic and pain as its surface is burned away, your strike craft targeting its weapons and maneuvering thrusters. You can feel the Queen's anger wash over you, as if she is trying to harm you with her hate alone as her weapons snap under the weight of your fleet.A moment later, there is a flash of light as your main force arrives. It had truly arrived at the same time as your first wave, but the light is only now reaching the battle. The fleets are quickly accelerating, racing behind the light serving as their herald. A moment later a high velocity impactor erupts against the hull of the last enemy cruiser, fired from a hive ship as it closes in on the battle at relativistic speeds. The velocity is great enough to envelop the ship in fire. A moment later several more impactors detonate against various hulls and silently speed past the conflict. Several detonate in the atmosphere of the planet, casting the night time surface in a harsh light as your heavy fighters decelerate to engage.cont.

>>42348667The enemy Hive ship drifts helplessly as your fleet burns its escort. It fills the space around it with the shrapnel of chitin slugs, but its weapons are picked away by your swarmers and torched by your fighters. The ship enters an unstable orbit as the corpses of its companions begin to glow in the heat of reentry. It will join their fate in a few more orbits.Your own ships have taken damage from the Hive ship's defenses, but you count no losses.

>>42348750This one sounds good
>>42348715Supporting. Destroy relays, put to sleep thinkers, look for anything of interest on the planet, whether from the other Hive or just general ecology, ruins, ect...
>>42348741We can communicate with her telepathically. A neural interface would allow her to read our mind as well as we could read hers. I just want to capture it so we can give the bitch a seizure whenever we feel like it.
>>42348733Well, the first problem is that we are short with the time, Obsian queen will sent his fleets here soon. And repairing it's drivers will take a time..even if we manage to capture it before it burns from atmos entry.
What would happen if the Obsidian Queen tells the hiveship to an hero with everyone aboard?
>>42348764Ignore the obvious troll anon, and get with the questing.
>>42348770>Destroy relays>destroyBitch this is our chance.The obsidian witch doesn't know we even HAVE psionic jamming. There's a chance they won't be prepared.But after this try, they will be.
>>42348696Don't we have a psionic jammer weapon from heretic? if so i vote to use it on the ship.
>>42348733You can't use a ship from a rival hive since the ship's mind will instinctively resist against anyone who isn't its mother or a close relative.
>>42348784>an heroExplain how, anon.They doesn't even have nuclear weapons. There is no self destruct mechanism strong enough to destroy a ship without at least that or nanomachines.

>>42348785The anti-unity/heretic retard reminds me so much of the uguumonOP/myrmidonciv/discord666 with their pants-on-head retardation and how they type and mindlessly direct people to other boards instead of come up with a rebuttal
>>42348790We have to keep it hidden behind our back until we are literally on top of the relay though.We can't use it or reveal its presence until we are about to attach it to her network and force her to resort to Thinkers-only strategies.
>>42348766The effective radius of an advanced psionic jammer is 50 km.>>42348789Fucking this. If we can capture one of OQ's adavanced psionic relays we can jam her ENTIRE NETWORK whenever we choose to. It's like having your enemies spine in your hands at all times.

>>42348800We know she has Immolator Warheads, since she apparently used those on The Builder's homeworld. Don't know if she thinks this will be worth it though, my guess is that she'll just send a shit ton of battleships at us.
>>42348816>50 kmNot for jamming the entire network, dumbass.You have to literally attach it to the damn relay. Using it at any point before that puts the bitch on high alert and makes payback impossible.

>>42348830No we won't, and nobody else will, because she'll be rolling on the floor of her throne room in unspeakable agony while all of her children have a conniption and die.
>>42348852This counts as over trolling right? As in banable offense level reporting? Just report this and let's move on.
>>42348852Yup, samefag as all those others. Buddy you need to get a life instead of trolling internet forums so thoroughly
>>42348854Technically if we roll well enough that she doesn't successfully destroy this relay before we use it.She'll probably manage to destroy all the other relays and go dark, relying on thinkers for as long as we have her relay in our claws.And of course. Without using a relay and becoming subject to jamming. She won't be able to find where we hide the relay, in deep space or whatever.

>>42348873I also second Ghost Beetle teams.
>>42348904>>42348898Wouldn't that be counter-productive since the hiveship can sense almost everything thats happening inside itself and thus render those moot?
>>42348873Wait isn't it in an unstable orbit meaning it's going to crash into the planet right?
>>42348873>>OtherA psi disruptor.> If grafted to an advanced relay, the signal can be made to propagate along the relay’s own network. Unless it would somehow be more effective to carry the relay out of the ship instead. Which seems unlikely, since whether carrying it out or bringing a disruptor in, it will be clear what the goal is once we reach it.
>>42348873>YPlease give me 1d100, best of 3 for boarding action.>>42348884In the confines of ship boarding, highly doubtful, or at the very least they would have no room to maneuver and be hampered by the confinement.

>>42349064Dude, that's kinda the same thing they've been doing all along. I mean, we could set some of them aside to research our existing tech in ways they haven't attempted before, but that's pretty much the extent of it.
I wonder if the new queen is an aunt, a sister, or a cousin.
>>42349015We're beaming the battle directly to Unity/Heretic right?It would provide them great tactical knowledge of the BQ and her strategies
>>42349015We can finally send pods to all the Valen stars!It's a bit far in terms of roll-free range, but we can put like 20 pods to piggyback on the Clarke, drop them off a lightyear past Aquarius, and let them blink the rest of the way to their destinations.
>>42349064Don't forget space fortresses. Great for securing systems.
>>42349089We can only hope.
>>42349092What if we just sneaked them through their portal system?
>>42349001It's sorta like Naked Snake and Punished Snake. She dabbled with really weird tech that people told her not to mess with, and then she sprouted a big shrapnel horn from her head and went crazy.>>42349033I think we all do. After those rolls I feel like I ran a mile.>>42349041Yes, as I very briefly mentioned, the time I normally spend managing those this week was instead spent on the side of the road after my carburetor died. On the bright side, it is saving you money on upkeep.>>42349064On a side note, the insulators seem to be similar in function to whatever it is the Union is using to "contain" the Mirage's power source. It seems the builder was stumbling down the same research track by chance, which does happen. You unlocked your new shield tech without studying Scavenger shields, for example. All factions have a chance to unlock the same tech from totally different methods, or simply overlook them.
>>42349093I wonder if we could trade the research for spacecities to Heretic (and maybe Unity) since Heretic is devoted to making the Skyl a nomad space-faring race now
>>42349084>the same thing they've been doing all alongThat's like declining to choose a new research subject because it's "the same thing" as existing research.It's an entirely new opportunity for unlocking new things that existing efforts simply don't accomplish. QD said Thinkers don't have a 100% track record for unlocking new tech trees. This fills in those gaps.
>>42349102Their portal system measures the exact amount of mass transported for billing purposes.
>>42349091Seriously stop this trolling bullshit
>>42349129>for billing purposesholy shit these jew squids are so jew that I can feel it from the monitor
>>42349160Definite Navigators Guild
>>42349094I'm hoping for a sister. Maybe Mom made a bunch of kids and sent them out all over, so that some would survive OQ. An aunt or cousin is also ok, but a bit more iffy.
>>42349160Ceph are squids.Valen are big toothy mawed gators, according to Space Florida.
>>42349136> witholding intel about enemy operations from valuable alliesLook, even IF "they may turn on us" held ANY water, we are still going to have joint operations against Obsidian Bitch some day and that will get the two AIs all the tacticalinformationabout our operations.>>42349160Jew whales anon, not squids.
>>42349136you seem blissfully unaware of who the troll really is
>>42349091>It would provide them great tactical knowledge of the BQ and her strategiesWe could just send them that info without having to beam any direct video feeds to them.
>>42349091>greatNo it wouldn't.It would be a marginal bit of additional knowledge at best. They've already seen the OQ and strategies inaction several times. One more is severely diminishing returns.
>>42349136It's not an illegitimate idea, even if you don't agree with it. To count as trolling it has to throw petty insults around like confetti and use a lot of ad hominem attacks. Side's I've seen dumber things posted and got voted for.
>>42349191I think that anon just wants the Queen to show off for her cyber-senpais
>>42349091We don't need to share everything and braid each other's hair just because we have a common enemy.We can do our own thing sometimes. Let Refuge be just ours.
>>42349167>>42349172>>42349173>mfw I was thinking that valens and ceps were the same squid creatures all this timeI'm a bad thinkerI should recycle myself
>>42349195Eh, every bit helps. They may notice something he could miss.Although the battle so far is less tactics and more "reacting to complete annihilation", but the incoming fleet should be more interesting.>>42349197>To count as trolling it has to throw petty insults around like confetti and use a lot of ad hominem attacks.Curiously how the most vocal anti-showing guy went off calling everybody retards and sending them off to random undesirable boards, eh?
>>42349201It's just polite to include them.Though it may be worth it to hold onto the footage for a while and use it in our cheeky banter with Unity just to see the reaction of Zero-One watching the OB forces get obliterated in a matter of seconds. Maybe even heavily doctored or just a few clips
>>42349228No it isn't. You are a goddamn nation-state. You can do your own offenses and battles on your own.
>>42349237But these are ALLIES, you waste of nutrients. Sure we can fight them ourselves... but what about when our allies get rekt? We show them the battle, we let them know how OQ works, and let them do the harrowing on OQ with less casualties. Or are you suggesting we should not be so polite, you antisocialite?
I always find it funny how we get into the most vocal of arguments over the little things.
>>42349290meh, just warn both Theseus and Heretic that shit might go down in the neighborhood because we're doing an offensive and the big nigger bitch is going to have to counterattack soon.
>>42349260There is no politeness or rudeness involved dumbass. Aside from this conversation obviously. There are no rules of social niceties at play that bind your claws when it comes to two other factions who you come to the mutual defense of. Mutual defense does not imply sharing fucking everything about offense being mandatory.
>>42349317We're not saying we have to, you fucking teratomaWhat if we just want to be friendly this one time and show off for one of our very first friends and an ally that HATES this enemyIt's a sign of trust but you are so far up your ass hiding in paranoia you think such a thing is a sign of weakness and should be ridiculed.Fuck you, we're the cheeky friend that likes to show off. Majority seems to support that you're an idiot
>>42349361Exactly. They're our bros
>>42349317Not mandatory, but for diplomatic brownie points. Since sharing what we know of OQ's tactics would make them better prepared to attack or defend against OQ themselves.The end goal is not about whether it's mutual defense or offense, the end goal is the OQ going down. Sharing that intel would speed up this process, albeit for a bit.Do you get the logic of the hive yet?So yeah, I don't understand your point of view in not sharing the intel. Are you too afraid for any one of our ally to backstab us?Let's see. Theseus has obviously been attacked by the OQ, and that hampers his goal of research. So OQ is seen as an obstacle and an enemy to Theseus. We also hate OQ. Thus our goals align.Then we have Heretic, whose race was wiped by OQ. Heretic got beef with OQ. We got beef with OQ. Thus our goals align.So in this OQ hateclub alliance, we're all up for dishing some concentrated hate on OQ. The others will soon know of our fight one way or another. Now, us not sharing means we might have ulterior motives other than OQ, and thus making the alliance unstable with doubt.See what your folly has ferried us to?
You know what i hate? Stomach cramps, i'm having some really bad ones right now while i'm shitting out my intestines
>>42349385My IBS does that to me and I hate it. So much
>>42349385Anon you shouldnt eat bad food.
>>42349385Oh dude that sounds awful, gut aches and nausea are the worst. Did you eat something a Taidaren would go for? Hope that clears up before the next thread man.
>>42349381Hell, even for post-OQ.Heretic wants to remove squid (and de-crystal monkeys) and rebuild Skyl. We are slowly working on tracking down things for the former and have made the latter at all possible, with further offers to help on the table.Theseus wants research and for Union to not bother him, plus some interests in Union manipulation. We're working with him on all that again.And lastly, we're not shortlived humans in which everybody in charge will change in half a century. We are immortal and won't just do a 180 on the past connections.
Should we offer Medium Exosuits to the Commonwealth further on? Like only a select few for elite squads of Commonwealth commandos for use against Scavs?To prevent them reverse engineering it we wouldn't give it to them full time but rather allow them to "rent" it out from us during -joint- operations so if they do fall we can collect the wreckage.
>>42349396Yeah i think it's my IBS acting up because of the stress of moving to another part of the country and college bs with a lot of new people >>42349397i think it might have been the ham i had for breakfast>>42349419it truly is, i got really warm, sweaty and dizzy and it feels like someone has his hand in my stomach twisting around my intestines while someone is kicking me at the same time, i'm just glad that i get small breaks in between the cramps
>>42349015First thing on agenda for the thread better be podsploration after the battle.Although the prospect of finding void shards in human planets by listening for their whispers just got rather less plausible now that we know they perfected psionic insulators.We still need to actually see what the galaxy has to offer.
>>42349558Not really seeing the point, we can use the suits ourselves. And can probably just hog the whole land theatre to ourselves with our swarms.
>>42349594R u me from the past? QUICK PAST ME! AVOID THE 5 CREDIT CALC CLASS ITS NOT WORTH IT AND FAILING TANKS YOUR GPA! ALSO PAST ME YOU HAVE SLEEP APNEA GET THAT CHECKED OUT!!!
You know, if OQ tries to destroy the relay at the last moment by commanding one of her drones to injure it.We could try and revive it with parasites and medical paste, or a Large Bio-tank.Revive it just as it has a disruptor clamp down on it.
Is encryption not in use on radio transmissions or is the hive just breaking all the codes effortlessly.Every single time humans talk to each other over radio we can understand what they're saying.
>>42349819Could be a nice ruse if she thinks that it's dead, but we recover it, hide it with psi-jammers and then turn off the jammers just in time for the disruptor to connect.
>>42349834they aren't aware that we are listning to them yet. hence we can get in easily.
>>42349834We figured their entire LANGAUGE from zero in a couple minutes with ONE thinker.We have thousands of them now.Codes aren't worth shit.
>>42349837If it's dead OQ is already blind, it's hidden already by definition since it was her sole connection to the area.
>>42349858jammers are so that she won't recover a connection with it once we heal it. So that the disruptor will be a surprise.
>>42346712>Valen spaceNow, this is a story all about howOur life got flipped-turned upside downAnd we'd like to take a minuteJust sit right therewe'll tell you how we became princes of the star BalkilareIn west New Tokyo hatched and raisedIn the dumpsters was where we spent most of our daysWallowin' in trash, relaxin' all coolAnd stealin' kids' leftovers outside of the schoolWhen a couple of squids who were up to no goodStarted making trouble in our neighborhoodWe got in one little fight and Matron got scaredShe said 'You're movin' with your auntie out in Balkilare'
>>42349260Stop trying to boast to the ais, its getting old.
>>42350148Boast, my chitinous ass! It shows that the OQ was ill-prepared for that type of attack. That OQ had little planetary defense aside from ground troops. She had no surface-to-orbit weaponry, and relies on her fleet patrols. In the hands of Heretic and Theseus, this is valuable intel.
