Maverix, don't worry about it mate. The
cat is already out of the bag and quite frankly, I'm not too sure why
people didn't catch onto it before. This is how we took out KDS' HQ
before and we might have used it 1-2 other times; however, the log on
has never been at primetime so I guess this was a difference from
previous applications of this tactic.
A lot of accussations were
thrown out about how this was done, but I can seriously understand
where the Imps are coming from. One of your bases just goes poof, you
didn't see any rebels near it (just a bunch fighting a couple hundred
meters away) and some of your friends were near the base for an
extended period of time before it went poof. It would be rather hard to
fathom how the base was taken unless you already have an idea of how to
Raph' thanx for explaining that, I had thought about
putting it out in the open but I knew there would be a time and place
for it and you put it right where it needed to be. I know many rebels
would have loved to come fight with you there as well. I had a hard
time not letting anything about the plan escape to those outside of the
plan. I didn't even let my mayor or lieutenants know what was planned
because the appearance of a purely TSA attack was needed and I know my
mates would have loved to come even if it was just to watch.
I respect your views and it may be classified as an exploit in the
future. I don't think I've ever encountered entering a base with no
turrets and logging back in when one had been placed. I do know that I
have placed a turret when one of our bases was overrun by Imperials.
All the Imps were kicked out of the base (not all at once though, if I
remember correctly, they might have had to try to attack a rebel player
or npc first, don't know for sure).
The team was physically in
the base (and attackable) for probably 6 minutes to hack it and while
they weren't in there for the 9.5min of the countdown, you don't need
them to be in order to stop it. All you need is an overt Imperial (for
5 min I think) to walk up the terminal and select abort. This is where
luck came in: would someone walk in and notice the countdown (even with
2-3 minutes left, there was more than enough overts nearby to get to it
I doubt this tactic will work again or at least not
for a while since people need time to forget about it. However, it's
now time to see what other sort of tricks are hidden in my composite
I don't mean to steal your wind here, but could I at least get an
honourable mention for telling you about this little idea I had while
Remember the night we were on comms and Mojo was well pissed about
losing a base in Sunfall before we all got twatted in Valhall. I think
it was you who was wondering why the hell I was counting to sixty...
Oh yeah - and Eghate... maybe next time the second Rifleman + Jedi won't show up and we can really go toe to toe.

Or did I confuse you with the other one? It wouldn't be the first time...
