    Lack of people doesn't make it less lame.
               My wing tips waltz across naive
                     Wood floors they creak
                  Innocently down the stairs

                          Drag melody
    My percussive feet serve cobweb headaches as a
              Matching set of marching clocks
                The slumbering apparitions
              That they've come to wake up

    LOL We were ganking at the caves because we only had 4 people until Gamon showed up towards the end to make it five. We had like no leaders and it was my first time in a CTF in any game. I was just doing what I could with the others.  :persevere:
    @Jinsun @Melane : If this was 2012 or 2013 and you had told me this would happen, I don't think I could have believed you. Ashtan used to be able to take on everybody at the same time... I remember that one Tanris-with-19-minions bum rush pretty well.

    Such a disappointment to me to see Ashtan score 60 points in a ctf. Gone are the days when Ashtan could field a ctf force designed to take on at least two cities at the same time.
    Meh. We'll have a stronger showing next time. This CTF blindsided us pretty hard 'cause we didn't start preparing for it until less than a day before, and none of our seasoned combatants aside from @Jinsun were able to make it. I mean, I was out there, so we were obviously scraping the bottom of the barrel. Hopefully the next one will be after serenade so that there'll be more of us around
    ctf was announced at the beginning of the month - shouldn't have blind-sided anybody
    Ut Florida announced at beginning of year... Conspiracy v ashtan??? Probably

    edit: and i wonder how many programmers want to work on fixing legacy code re: what makarios said.
    A few brave souls, surely. Or at least one. Er.
    Is it true that you burn it out with napalm?
    It's true. Sometimes Deucalion lets us borrow the really GOOD fire. If it gets on any mortals, all the better!

    Dalinor went from sweet and kind to BURN THE MORTALS. I see someone is growing well. :D

    adding flames to the fire - centaur warfighting - Achaea replicating the bleeding edge of combat.  Thought some of you pkers would find this article interesting. Basically it talks about how combat systems are being used to parse and organize data but the human controller makes the decisions.  As I was reading the article I was struck by the similarities to how pk systems work here - well it's central to this discussion at any rate - that is to say full automation vs man/machine interface (hence centaur) the tl/dr version is that the military strongly favours "centaur warfighting" ( a term coined by gary kasparov of all people (yes that kasparov)).
