great to see some old faces and some new faces... being playing in the tourney, but then when i lost the big cash planet kool_kid took efforts to build it up, i opted for the weak option and self destructed.
on hindsight, i should have not done tt as i merely lost my stealth and still have my endy and razorback. besides, i wuz just inside the top 10. sigh...
i no longer have the resolve to withstand failures in AAT. Is it because I am getting bored or that life has marked itself on me that I want to just see the perfect world, not the dark and ugly side of the world.
This brings me back to my mid year common tests. I nearly gave up when I got pwnzed and owned in my best subject, which I have been the top the year before. During the stupid 2.4 km runs, when I am clocking great passing times in the first 4 laps, I just self destructed and ran 2 disastrous laps and consequently failing. Is tt someone I want to be? Is that the person I used to be?
Maybe a break will just allow me to reflect upon the weakness I have. This is probably the biggest obstacle I have to face so far. As some wise guy said, your greatest enemy is none other than yourself.
Taking a break till 0.30. Probably that is when I have found my true, battling self.

just playing normally in the tourney. quite disappointed with the spat bwt a_blitz and big. anyway, killed once by big, but he said that he tot i wuz a_blitz and he sent me 100 bil in compensation. however, i tot it wuz fair game since i wuz away from the comp at tt time and therefore did not touch the money.
milking money from some planets to get good ships. managed to break into the top 10 (8th now). until kool_kid comes back, i guess i hav to hold the fort for our 2 man team.

The tourney is starting and I am teamed up with Kool Kid in the tourney and we are the only 2-player team around. Looks like we need to work harder to make an impact in the tourney.

Just resigned from the Draft Tourney cos I misread the schedule for my Common Tests. It ends at 6 May instead of 2nd May. Sigh. Looks like I have to give this Tourney a miss. FYI, the subjects I will be having Common Tests include English, Social Studies, Mathematics, Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Geography, Computer Elective Studies (Cisco Networking), Higher Chinese. Luckily I am not taking the GCE O levels this yr, or else I will not even have time to surf AAT.
Nvm. Eagerly awaiting the release of ver 0.30 I will look forward the oppotunity to spar wif Lucky Starr. The best way to counter a crook is to think like him and act like him. Let's form an alliance where we just all hunt down on Lucky Starr. I do not believe that he can escape our dragnet. Else just create a SG and just burrow in there and not coming out like Kwae Zar. Probably tt's one of my priorities in the new game.
Waiting for almost 10 months already. PJ!!!
Wish me luck for my Common Tests.

Now, as I am playing on the main server, I derived 3 conclucions:
1. Playing on an easy server first will make you suffer on the main server.
2. The main server is not as difficult as it used to be.
3. Do not think that you are good and try to impose your "tactics" on others and try to teach others before you can apply those principles correctly yourself.
I have tried both the main server and all those Rougue servers that really give you an easy start and really help you improve nothing except you ability to sort out huge numbers. Having tried the main server at the start, I realised that those Rougue servers will not help you improve at all.
However, the real reason for me writing this blog entry is in my title. For heaven's sake, please, Private Ryan, turn back from the sorrowful land of arrogance. Never try to wear a bigger hat than your head is. Anyway, do not EVER try to act helpful in giving advice to others where you have not even proven yourself. Right now, my score of 633,186 to Private's score of 423,532 even though I started a day later than you. Also, to add, the main server is easy to start now, so I believe you should not have that low of a score given the playing period you have.
So, please, do not act smart if the Rougue servers has boosted your ego into humungous proportion. Prove yourself first, before trying to act arrogant.
BTW, if you hate me now, you can come and kill me on the main server. My alias is Pixar, so come and search me out, else just heed my friendly advice which you may perceive as being offensive.
P.S. Flint is good in exploiting sector settings loopholes. Set up a planet with SDs blocking my access to my planets. If it's not because of my team coordinator's lapse in concentration, I do not think that Flint would have got to put up his SDs there, therby causing me to lose my Razor and plunge 200k in points.
