The second X3: Terran Conflict UPLINK Competition has ended and we have a winner. Congratulations to Ivendar with the winning time of only 19 minutes, 9 seconds!

The runners up are:
2nd: The Q (20 minutes, 40 Seconds)
3rd: AleksMain (25 minutes, 33 seconds)

That was even closer than last time! I hope that everyone enjoyed participating! Keep an eye out for the next competition, sometime in the future.

Impressive!

We already saw the tactics used by AleksMain capping the blastclaw. I would like to see what the others did.

And The Q, you are second again!!

Hi, as you know, I said already about hard, hard :wink: way to 3 place.

Really, that was my second try. During first fight I got Blastclaw Prototype only, so I reloaded my save and started again.

To ask nearby Pirates' patrol about free ship (Blastclaw) with weapon (4 Fragmentation Bomb Launchers) - about 10 minutes.

To repair it, gather cargo from other destroyed pirates' ships (2 Blastclaw Prototypes, 1 Blastclaw, 1 Elite) and wait while capped Blastclaw will be docked at Shipyard yet 5 minutes.

To sell M3 ships and buy D.Raider(M5) - less than 1 minute.

Pretty impressive times the first three got.

Congrats to Ivendar. Well done!
I feel a bit sorry for the Q who was very close again but ended up empty handed again.

Just like the previous posters I am also interested in how you guys did it.

EDIT: The Q and Aleksmain posted their strategies just before my post, so only Ivendars strategy remains at this point.

The Q, I like the way you handle your disappointment and are very much spirited to try and win the next one. That's good sportsmanship and attitude.

You are correct off course that the most important thing, while competing in a competition like this, is to have fun.

I think there are many people enjoying themselves with the special gaming goals in the uplink competition. I certainly do!

My time was a little under 50(!) minutes, but is not really important since I didn't play this round to win. I was just enjoying myself. As I was pretty sure my time wouldn't suffice for a top 3 place I didn't even upload it.

Maybe next round I will play at full strength again. Unfortunately that would leave you with a 2nd place at most again. :wink:

About Ivendar. I saw his profile and think that he is German.

Here qoute of post before moment when he became a winner.
Ivendar wrote:Ohmei bei sowas hat man natürlich schlechte Karten , obwohl ich auch ne extrem niedrige Zeit hab. Naja mal abwarten für welchen Platz es reicht, hatte mir eigentlich schon gute Chancen gegeben. ^^ Sieht man die Ergebnisse dann irgendwo ? Aber Waffen für 5 Millionen Credits is schon übel. Na bleibt zu hoffen, daß er net alle sofort ins Schiff laden konnte. *g*
As I translated (brief translation): "Well time to wait for what the place is enough, I actually already had good opportunities. If you look at the results somewhere?"
And there are no posts after it.

Congratulations
