    Could we maybe speed this up a bit? Like, if there are orders missing after 1 week the corresponding mechs just don't do anything?

    Round 10 Fire (slightly shaken (not stirred))

    This round has Cyan focus firing the Jenner while Orange concentrates their efforts on the Charger. And while a few hits are scored, it's not enough to make either mech stumble. The Charger chose the Hatchetman as the target of his AC/20 and SRMs but fails to score a single hit.

    Is it cyan's game plan to win by making their opponents lose interest in this LP?

    Will it work? Seriously, though, I think we are dealing with a morale issue on our side after all those misses from us and hits from you. Life imitates strategy games.

    When in doubt, charge. What have you got to lose? Maybe you'll rape us with those AC/20s, maybe we'll take you down, at least it'll be better than this constant waiting for updates. It's just an LP ffs.

    Round 11 Movement (Charging the Annihilator)

    :mhd:
    Which might be a most suicidal thing to do. 60 damage alpha strike incoming. To make things worse the Wolverine and Hatchetman will join the 100 ton monstrosity. Will there be anything left of the Charger? Still the Charger packs some firepower himself with his twin SRMs and AC/20.
    Elsewhere on the battlefield the Jenner managed to get around the Mongoose, who himself tried to get behind the Jenner, and Centurion who rushed to the front lines to support the Charger.

    I feel I should clarify: The Mongoose is indeed in the Jenner's rear arc, only his facing prevents him from firing all his lasers at the Jenner's back.

    Round 11 Fire (What's in a name)

    It's the end of the game as we know it: The heaviest mechs on both sides choose to exchange shots, the odds heavily favor Lance Orange though as the Annihilator hits on 6+, while the Charger needs a 8+. And while heavy damage for the Charger was pretty predictable, the amount of damage really was not. 7 out of the 8 shots from the Annihilator hit the Charger, including all 4 ACs. Three shots hit the LT and leave only 1 point of armor. Which is then hit by the Wolverine's SRMs resulting in catastrophic damage as the AC/20 ammo storage is hit. Luckily CGR ejects safely from the wreck that was once a mighty 80 ton battlemech. The Archer scores a solid hit with one of his LRMs on the Wolverine but the missiles scatter and impact all over the fast medium mech. The Mongoose and Jenner also show some great marksmanship as the eklektyk cuts through all of the Jenner rear LT armour and the Jenner hits the Centurions cockpit but Deuce Traveler remains in control of his mech.

    Here are the dice rolls:
