Version 2.0 of Laser Squad Nemesis (http://www.lasersquadnemesis.com) has just been released. Featuring a new race, The Spawn, 'A fearsome and rapacious alien species who bring another dimension to the tactical melting pot', and many other 'refinements and additions'. Better get that subscription renewed!

1) I think mine hasn’t, so I can still challenge other people.
2) You can get three free challenges.

Cool. The three free challenges thing is new.

distorted at loudmedicine dot net if you want to send me a challenge.

Do you not check the hotmail one, then?

Funkodrom

Own goal?

Of course not, that's just a spam dump. Who'd use hotmail for actual e-mail? You'd have to be a total sadist. Last time I checked it it had actually deleted my account.

Aha... now I see people have been e-mailing me there. D'oh.

I've got all my loudmedicine addresses forwarding to home, I check my web based netscape mail and work mail but I didn't think I'd given the hotmail to anyone. Of course it's in my profile though isn't it.

When I saw this news item at the top of the front page I thought "God, that's the new Unholy name everyone was making a fuss about? How fucking awful."

Funkodrom

Wait 'till you see the real name, you'll hate it much more.

The more you put off telling people the name, the more they're going to be disappointed in it when you finally unveil it. Too much hype...

The new version is pretty cool, they've made some very interesting changes and the Spawn are a very tough new race. Their tactics are very different from the other two and tough to counter.

My subscription runs out next week. I probably won't be renewing it unless some folks here get interested in it again. It's more fun playing against people you know than strangers for a league position. Still, feel free to challenge me or PM me for a challenge up until then.

Hmmm... we're not really trying to hype it, just to get the website ready. It's taking longer than I would have liked.

Guy

I know, I stated that badly. It'll be fine, I'm sure, and I'm interested to see the website. Hopefully sooner than later.

Actually a lot of people already know, we weren't going to keep it a secret until King_Ghidra AKA SATAN started making a fuss about it. :D

I spam-dumped you once. :p
Actually if you avoid signing up for things, hotmail is a very viable mailer. I get little spam outside of colonize type stuff on hotmail.

I have four messages in my Hotmail account, but I keep getting ones about extra storage :confused:.

I'm up for a challenge, though I'll be a bit slow due to downloads and all. But hey, at least it's be easy...

What size are they? You only get like 1-2 Mb of free space. Once you reach a certain percentage of capibility they'll sent you can email saying that you need extra storage. As an added bonus, those messages take up like 1k more space. :)

Yup because I'd need to have like 50-60 undeleted mails before I get that message.

Just got beaten by Sean, Spawn vs Spawn. By the end of the game I'd almost worked out how to use them. :D

Sean

Good comeback, although I had more units to kill than you might have thought, because my queen laid eggs.

Guy is severely beating me, Marines vs Spawn, and is doing well against me, Spawn vs Marines :).

It took me ages to work out how to get the queen to eat corpses. That caused the death of the first queen. I had an egg at the end but apparently it was still game over. How can you tell what's going to come out of the egg?

Sean
15-10-2002, 18:48:31
It’s random. Oh, and one of my Spikers shot the egg :p.

I had trouble with my Queen, too: it seems to only lay eggs when it feels like it.

Ah, but I couldn't see it 'cause it didn't have any vision?

I clicked the L button on the queen and it laid an egg.

No my account died too. You'll have to do an email challenge thingy I think.

PM me if you don't have my mail.
