I voted for the Titan....tried the Kore and it's "ok" but just that......ok. The titan also doesn't have that "look we can B-wing too!" vibe that I can live without. Not a big fan of the rotating frame, serves no purpose.

I also voted against the cutty....so overrated IMO. Ya sure it's good but not that damned good. Fix a few things and I'll be onboard as a fanboy. Or at very least fix the abhorrent visibility in the cockpit.

Voted for the reclaimer because the carrack to me looks like a giant wood grub and I love the idea of the reclaimer's design. It looks and feels more like a realistic ship......even if it's pretty obvious some Sulaco fanboys designed it lol

Original post updated! The Black put the Andromidas lights out, the Drake proving that reliable function and a firm following triumps a longer list of fitted features including a toilet!
Or perhaps you could say that the Cutlass caused the lights of the Andromeda to be Painted Black with some Rolling Stones?

Tried to log in today to see if I could crash a Reliant but it seems the 16 ships are limited to those who have no ships?
Yeah it's not real clear... but you can request them, but you need to go to the website and "apply" even the code
scroll down...

It's working now. Guess I just had to give it time after trying the code and getting an error.
Technology is great when it's working right, but then sometimes for seemingly no reason it goes wrong & will drive you bonkers. Occasionally, I get the feeling that the EMP was initially thought up by somebody having such an issue with technology at the time. If not, it sure would've made sense.

Original post updated! The classic lines of the Avenger helped it roll the Misc over with 9k votes to only 2.6k votes, no amount of high tech articulated wing action is going to take the sting out of that one!

Today, Round 1 bout 7 of 8, battle of the people carriers! Will the Prowler be as popular as SUV's in the suburbs, or will the Valkyrie earn as many votes as mini-vans parked outside the local little-league tournament?

Valk is killing it hard today.
The Valk's shock troops are raiding the Prowler's landing pad presently. Can they hold the position until time runs out on this match or will the Prowler crew manage to fight their way through the carnage to fly to the next round? So far, this is the Valk's round match.

Original post updated! The Prowler slinks back into the shadows as the Valkyrie rides on to Valhalla and the next round!

Today, Round 1 bout 8 of 8, the majestic 890j and the rakish Razor, was there ever a more uneven matching? The Peoples Racer vs The 1%, will the 890j have enough owners to outvote a craft 5.93 times more accessible to the mass market? Only time, and your votes, will tell!

Just remember that last year the 890J was eliminated by the Drake Dragonfly if I'm remembering correctly.

I won't be so shure about the 890j... the Valkyrie is a preatty good ship with a lot of fan base, also both the Cuttlass black and the Titan are preatty solid ship (fan base side) to deal with...
zero doubt on the Carrak instead...
I'm still hoping that somehow the Titan will eliminate the Cutlass Black.

Original post updated! The 890j throws off the misfotune of last year and proves to be too much Moby to the Razors Ahab, rolling through to Round 2!

So, 8 of our fair maidens have already retired to the benches in Round 1, now Round 2 with eight contestants and 4 bouts enters the Arena!

Today, Round 2 bout 1 of 4, the Carrack, newcomer sweeping all in its way finds before it the Caterpillar, last years winner and formidable opponent! Will the Cat loose her crown?! The smart money says... it's all to play for!

.....and of course the Carrack is commiting war crimes on the Caterpillar.
Three and a half hours in and the Carrak has roughtly a two-thirds advantage. From previous bouts when a contender takes a lead, they keep it. Time will tell... but will history?
