- Avacar opportunity fires 2 mass driver cannons at Panda (TR 5+), hitting 3 out of 6 times for 9 points of damage

This turn shows how dangerous maneuvers can be if you botch them... I guess we're as good as done here.

- Humungus accelerates to 1, turns 1 right

- QuailPilot fails to perform an Immelman turn (TR 6+), turns 3 left instead

- QuailPilot has left the combat area

- Humungus' shields recharge 4 points

And the winner is: Humungus! With one kill, he is the "last cat standing" in this dogfight. One assist goes to Avacar, and everyone taking part has earned qualifications for their specific fighter.

I'll be off for a seminar from the end of July until the second week of August, so there wouldn't be much use in starting a new game right now. But if Avacar keeps up his fast pace at programming the computer-aided version of WCTO - who knows, we might even tinker around with his game a bit in August.

I'm still curious...would my turning 3 still turn me around?

Yes, it would - but only after moving you forward half of your speed in hexes. And you didn't have any hex to spare there... The only way out of it would have been a full stop. (Or a successful Immelman turn, of course - which you only missed by 2, by the way.)I'm still curious...would my turning 3 still turn me around?
