Schedule post 2020-12-29

Yesterday the heroic Pilot Bucky took a run at Bogey VENUSAUR along attack vector 16. VENUSAUR deflected the shot, and then routed the energy from Bucky’s impact round to its DEFLECTOR SHIELD, making it harder to hit in future. Oh no!

In the early hours of yesterday morning, IVYSAUR and VENUSAUR both ended preparation for their attacks. IVYSAUR looks likely to complete its attack manoeuvre against Pilot Coderblaze today at 20h47. VENUSAUR’s attack against Bucky is not forecast to make contact today.

Finally, there is movement in the portal.

At 2020-12-30 10:15 UTC I will fire on VENUSAUR, attack vector 23; my Cluster Munitions will also target IVYSAUR.

pokes, did you intend to use an Overcharger Pod or a Bombardier Pod? Your Arsenal says Bombardier, but a Mark I with a Bombardier Pod should have an Attack of 16. An Overcharger Pod would let you hit those attack vectors but your Attack would only be 24.

Yes, Overcharger; my initial comment when changing to Jockeying was right with the right Power deduction but my mental math adding 60% to 15 and also the follow-up tracking it in the Arsenal column were wrong.

SQUIRTLE’s still emerging, so you can’t even attempt to fire on it. See https://blognomic.com/archive/a_hot_welcome#comments

Ok. I’ll probably just self-destruct the mech then since I can’t hit anything.

At 1:00 on December 1 I will attack VENUSAUR on Attack Vector 99 as a Bombardment spending 1 extra power.

(by which time I expect to be deShelled)
