Ups and Downs

Catching you up OOC

Maticore v Prophecy

Being on holiday, I wasn't looking for a fight. My internet connection was rubbish, and I didn't have my gaming mouse (which is a big deal if half your modules are hotkey'd to it). I just wanted to run a few sites, and reset my PI.But sometimes things don't go … [Read more...]

For Sale: Sold

In my USS Texas on the Ring map in domination mode, I'm low tier but do what I can as I spread it around on my way to earning the Confederate award. But it takes a team, and even though I hand out a paddling four times it isn't enough without backup. But wait, … [Read more...]
