Supernova 37 - PvC

It’s been ages since I played, so I don’t know many of y’all. And of the players I recognize, I don’t know how they play nowadays.

If someone however has the knowledge, and the time, it’d be great to see one of these on SN37!

Especially with things shaken up and stirred around every week.


I’ll judge this PvC on “contender” being a candidate to being one of the 2 one-player-fams that will never get assimilated into another family. Meaning they will stay high ranked all the time and come out on the very top at the end with the influx of players who couldn’t keep up being the pretenders.

At this point I know more players, but for the sake of strat I won’t reveal if they’re not playing under known nick.

1 House Menerva (6258)

Pax_Au_Telemanus, with Wardancers. He’s tucked away in a corner, with no real strong contenders around him. I don’t know who he is, but his gorydamn strong start at the moment plus all the leeway to build up he’ll be getting makes him a contender.

2 PreternaturalGalaxtic MFN PimP (6261)

Kamikaze with a SS attacking race and neg research. He’s ancient in IC terms, active, has some hard ops, leads the ranking after 2 days. Definitely a contender, will gobble up the weaker around him swiftly.

3 (6284)

Reginald Barclay, another Wardancers. Placed just about at the center of the galaxy, with no one particularly strong breathing down his neck. Contender.

4 working hard (6282)

Sloth, unknown to me, with a race with 50 attack, 50 income, no speed , no hard ops. He’s currently surrounded by some smaller, but active players, which could get him into conflict fast. Maaaybe contender, if he survives to pair up or finds a way to overcome the lack of speed.

5 (6250)

Yarty, playing with a compromise income race that can compensate lack of attack with droids and strong research. He’s got 6274, a wardancer as a close neighbour. One of both will make it, likely. My money’s on the wardancer in this SN, unless 50 can out-infra 74. Pretender.

6 (6288)

Savior, playing Quantam. 6275 to the east , 6243 to the south should pose no immediate threath, but especially 6284 closeby could make things difficult for a quantam. Pretender.

7 Hord3ling (6274)

I’d need to flip a coin between this Wardancer and banking Yarty from 50 to come out on top in this piece of the galaxy. Aggression from him or diplomacy from 50 will decide their fate. Pretender.

8 (6266)

StarChild with a race that’s the attacking mirror image of Yarty. He’s in a good position, not too close to stronger fams, can farm weaker fams that aren’t too far. Contender.

9 The Snoggits revival fam! (6286)

Snoggits, a wardancer. Has 64, a partax, as closest enemy, and not much else in his way to being a contender if he’s active, and not a fat, drunk noob.

10 Absolutely barbaric (6267)

AModernMajorGeneral, playing with a SS attack race with some income. He’s not badly positioned, with some smaller fams not too close, except for 82. He will need to make BOR count or run into a strong 82 waiting for him. Pretender.

11 The Northwestern (6251)

Catch, a Wardancer, in a position that will allow him to expand away and build up unimpedly. The only one close is 80, which isn’t really top of this list. Contender, by chance.

12 Smurfin Yo Momma (6264)

Big Bad Smurf, our first Pax! Audacious to go at pax alone with no speed and attack. If he will be able to survive for two weeks (cause let’s face it, the first batch of incoming assimilated will be the useless inactives) , it doesn’t matter if he’s assimilated or assimilates , he can play bank. But I don’t see him as a contender to the end. Pretender.

[ Pretenders all the way down from here. I’m just looking at something to say. Maybe just post a joke.]

13 WOT (6265)

u wot m8

14 insert pun-based name here (6243)

Those custom race estorms will sure come in handy with all them popbankers inhere.

15 Ping Pong (6260)

Where’d the pixels of that fampic go. Did you use Flints compression method?

16 Quantams of Solice (6253)

The bond’s Name. James Name.

Pleased to… what?

Bond Name’s the james

Are you alright?

Bames Nond’s having a stronk, call a Bondulance

17 (6263)

Paytimer, a quantam. Solid bro. Personally, I don’t believe in bros before hoes, or hoes. There needs to be a balance.

A homie-hoe-stasis, if you will.

18 PW9 (6275)

Skyline. He’s a pretty good vet. Why so low, man.

19 TI (6241)

Amok, wardancer, representing TI!. He should get a fampic, the lazy gnome.
You know what you should do, Amok? Have a beer.

20 n00b clowns (6245)

I had to type POC POC into google, and only found POC POC’s urban chicken coops in Montreal. So, yeah.

21 The senate (6244)

Nomination for best fampic and theme.

22 The awesomest family that will (6285)

… will what? What, man? Don’t leave us hanging.

Another partaxian. Good luck, buddy, hope you know what you’re doing.

23 Futile Chances (6259)

Estorms and -10 magic make me unhappy. :confused:

24 I left my other leg in my pant (6272)

My boss: “You’re fired.”

Me: turns in gun and badge

My boss: “You’re a waiter where did you get those”

25 The Devil May Care (6276)

“Son, I found a condom in your room.”

“Gee thanks, Grandpa!”

“Why are you calling me Grandpa?”

“Because I couldn’t find it yesterday.”

26 (6256)

Wife: I have to tell you something. I’m pregnant.

Husband: Hi Pregnant, I’m Dad

Wife: No you’re not.

27 (6248)

I don’t get people who call it a first world problem when they can’t charge their phones

African kids can’t charge their phones either.

28 Odins wolves (6271)

Cybrid. Having never even heard of Dan Simmon’s highly recommended reading epic Hyperion, imma go with this guy having a fetish for eukaryotic cell lines produced by the fusion of a whole cell with a cytoplast.

29 The Music of Legends (6268)

Just walked past an add on a window that said ;Hifi tower for sale: 1$. Sound stuck at maximum;

I thought; I can’t turn that down

30 Flames of Despair (6280)

A third partaxian. Lord Fader, more like Lord see ya lader amirite

31 (6270)

Deathdealer. First one’s a freebie?

32 (6257)

My friend keeps telling me to cheer up…

He said: It could be worse, you could be stuck underground in a hole filled with water.

I know he means well.

33 Be Gentle (6246)

Hells fallen one. Didn’t know my mother in law was playing.

34 Ócó és fínom (6247)

Save you a trip to google: Hungarian for “Oh, and I’m afraid”

35 (6254)

Why was the anti-vaxxer‘s 4 year old child crying?

Midlife crisis

36 jammin (6269)

I hope Elon Musk never gets involved in a scandal

Elongate would be really drawn out.

37 The Golden Hand (6249)

Not inactive, but seems to be a new player who’s struggling to make sense of it. He’s active in chat and trying. Let’s give this guy some leeway to play a game.

38 WAR (6283)

My girlfriend borrowed $100 from me. After 3years, when we separated, she returned exactly $100.

I lost Interest in that relationship.

40 (6252)

Scientist: My findings are meaningless if taken out of context.

Media: Scientist claims: Findings are meaningless.

41 (6262)

What do you call a dinosaur that takes care of its teeth?

A Flossiraptor

42 (6273)

I met a Jewish girl and she asked for my number.

I told her we use names here.

43 (6289)

My grandfather warned people that the Titanic would sink

No one listened, but he kept on warning them nonetheless until they got sick of him and kicked him out the movie theatre.

44 Oh my Gawd He’s back (6287)

A man in an interrogation room says “I’m not saying a word without my lawyer present.”

Cop: You are the lawyer.

Lawyer: Exactly, so where’s my present?

45 The donkies (6279)

Rizzy, late joiner at tick 40. Revalons in a solo hc gal is hard, but he could still reach the top half it if he’s active. Or get assimilated y a good fam, in which case he’s a real asset.


Rizzy and I have an alliance so we are good.

Nice analysis , zoz!

Cool- lol I am terrible at this game but whatevs… hopefully can help or just get eating up by the vets. Cheers!

Pretenders all the way down from here. I’m just looking at something to say. Maybe just post a joke.

Pretty sure, Im real, nice analysis from the “pretenders” and up

Catching up and started 2 days behind everyone

I did lose steam at some point , and ran out of time to look at all 44 fams.

If I do a next edition, It will be easier , with only half or a quarter left.

haha no worries, this universe not bad, except people seem to have better strats!

Made it in the top 10 after starting 2 days late

Hola! Skyline is low because he has two kids, full time job and full time uni :blush: that and I didn’t really read the rules about the galaxy I just joined. Making a small push at the moment though so we will see where this ends.

Oh, and very nice PVC thread. I miss these write ups!

it’s been a week and a half update!!!

Too much work atm X(

Yep, I expect this is totally what’s going to happen to me. :slight_smile: Oh, well, at least I’ll try to go down swingin’.
