Pfff yeah ****ing right. Fed has been so overbalanced to account for the whiners and crappy players that I'm tempted to wipe my ass with that 'paper' after my next chili dinner.

Really? Cannons are the determining factor? Whatever you're smoking, don't bogart that ****. Puff puff pass.

Granted this was premade on premade...but we had four Intrepids vs a carrier, a cruiser, two BoPs, and a raptor. Who needs cannons anyway?

True dat.

We don't need to adapt. We simply glance in the Feds' general direction and they kersplode into space dust. The only adapting we need to do is figure out how to fly sloppy drunk off Bloodwine without puking chunks all over teh Fednoobs.
