Eavesdropping

I just found an interesting conversation on the radio at TLF.

I have to post it, as an example of how rumours are started

//__Incoming radio message 610955 from VVVVV on channel 5: 
"I don't know if i have the drive to start a new game anymore." 
//__Incoming radio message 610956 from VVVVV on channel 5: 
"but I'll keep it in mind for the new round" 
//__Incoming radio message 610957 from AMBER on channel 77: 
"Fair enough." 
//__Incoming radio message 610958 from AMBER on channel 77: 
"The entry game is about 30 days long, and at the moment the main game is set" 
//__Incoming radio message 610959 from AMBER on channel 77: 
"for 6 months. that gives enough time for enough people to actually get through" 
//__Incoming radio message 610960 from AMBER on channel 77: 
"to the main game so it will be fairer." 
//__Incoming radio message 610961 from VVVVV on channel 5: 
"who is KRy anyhow. isee him attacking new players all the tiem" 
//__Incoming radio message 610962 from VVVVV on channel 5: 
"he is just out to stop startups or what?" 
//__Incoming radio message 610963 from AMBER on channel 77: 
"As far as i'm aware, Kry only attacks those who attack him, or wander into his" 
//__Incoming radio message 610964 from AMBER on channel 77: 
"farms." 
//__Incoming radio message 610965 from AMBER on channel 77: 
"I don't believe so, no. " 
//__Incoming radio message 610966 from AMBER on channel 77: 
"there are no startups on this game." 
//__Incoming radio message 610967 from VVVVV on channel 5: 
"alright. i just had a different impression." 
//__Incoming radio message 610968 from AMBER on channel 77: 
"New ships are not allowed on, are they, so he can't be stopping newbies. " 
//__Incoming radio message 610969 from AMBER on channel 77: 
"Like i said, there are no new ships on this game. haven't been for a couple" 
//__Incoming radio message 610970 from AMBER on channel 77: 
"of years now. " 
//__Incoming radio message 610971 from VVVVV on channel 5: 
"My ships are fairly new. I just hadn't used them in some time." 
//__Incoming radio message 610972 from VVVVV on channel 5: 
"so from what i hear of him i may be in danger some day... on his whim." 
//__Incoming radio message 610973 from VVVVV on channel 5: 
"but i could be just hearing biased info" 
//__Incoming radio message 610974 from AMBER on channel 77: 
"Well, if you logged them in when the game was "in full swing" as it were, you " 
//__Incoming radio message 610975 from AMBER on channel 77: 
"can still play them. But you can't actually start a brand new ship." 
//__Incoming radio message 610976 from AMBER on channel 77: 
"I haven't been back here for more than a few weeks either. " 
//__Incoming radio message 610977 from AMBER on channel 77: 
"do you play TLR too?" 
//__Incoming radio message 610978 from VVVVV on channel 5: 
"yes i do"

Now as far as TLF goes, in the last three months I’ve been involved in the following conflicts:

  1. NIMROD :- This ship raided one of my farms on several occasions. They destroyed about a dozen level 9/10 starbases and would warp & nudge planets and ports out of the farm. I was debating whether to retaliate or not, when I found a radio conversation where they were bragging on how good they were at raiding farms. I just HAD to hunt them down and kill them :D

Yep, that’s it… one battle… I guess I’m partially responsible for the removal of the neutral fig cover that FOB/MSS/TCW were parked under. But the removal of those millions of neutral figs was actually performed by an ally of mine, and the only ship that was destroyed in the whole battle was NIMROD (AFAIK).

Can anyone fill me in on all these startup ships that I’ve supposedly destroyed?

Cheers,
KRY
