Hello BORG,

I want to make sure everyone in BORG, who wants to stay in touch for the fellowship and friendships we've built up, knows the following.

This forum and clan is subject to GR's clan-clean sweeps. With the activity level we have here, it may not be long. One day, these BORG forums will simply vanish.

If you want to keep in touch, no matter what happens to the BORG clan here, please join http://www.chess.com (I am http://www.chess.com/members/view/BorgQueen there) and then join my group called http://www.chess.com/groups/home/borg-collective. That group will not be swept away as there is always going to be activity there.

You don't have to play chess either, but some fun can be had if you do tongue.gif

Please acknowledge this topic once you've read it!

Cheers,

Brad.

Perhaps tongue.gif

I just know how savage they are when doing clan "clean sweeps" happy.gif

Well, I like it since it's much more of a thinking/tactical game than RTS and such imo, which is far too dependant on APM, luck, network lag times and the like. I like a bit more depth to "smart games" than who has the best micro. IMO, mouse/keyboard skills shouldn't really enter into thinking games.

I'm sure many here will disagree, being a predominantly RTS site tongue.gif

I have played you on chess.com.

A full cumulative two moves! xD

Sorry for not moving again, ST. But I was caught up in work and traveling.

Will make it up to you soon. biggrin.gif

Cheers

LOOOOOL

Gaymixer dodges ST, I would do so too at chess tongue.gif Chess, for me, vs. ST would be the same as fishing, within 5 minutes I'm asleep biggrin.gif

Playing with ST is a lot of fun biggrin.gif Haven't won yet but if you don't play the better players you'll never get better yourself happy.gif

Least chess is balanced. Can't start with airforce where every pawn is a queen and instead of moving, they can teleport onto your king.

In 5 minutes you might be checkmated happy.gif

You CAN speed chess games up you know wink.gif

Great fun to be playing fellow Borgarians in something!

Very very true! And imo, you are learning quite fast. It's getting harder and harder for me to find the advantage.... perhaps with the exception of that early queen attack game.

100% agreed there! And being turn based, mouse/keyings skills have zero impact biggrin.gif

Terrific for me happy.gif

Yeah well I've learnt my lesson now biggrin.gif

You find fishing boring Steffy ohmy.gif It's so relaxing.

It is indeed relaxing, one of the best ways for me to fall asleep, other thing I easily sleep at is classical music.

Posted by: StarTrekker Jul 2 2009, 00:40 AM

Like me and soccer or cricket.

Posted by: Flamzypants Jul 2 2009, 01:08 AM

Ditto.

Do you really think that's an appropriate sig for a game admin SD? GR's representative?

Posted by: StefanDeath Jul 3 2009, 06:18 AM

Yes biggrin.gif

It's temporary only, just to bug Basel a bit biggrin.gif Oh well, removed after I made a screenshot of it. People can now laugh at Basel's monthly period again biggrin.gif

from zh clanwar clan, to ffg clan to chess clan.

u guys will end as a pony club i bet.

Posted by: StarTrekker Jul 18 2009, 11:56 AM

You have it all wrong. We are a clan. The game at hand is quite irrelevant. We stick together for the fellowship, not necessarily the games wink.gif

You are more a club then and not a clan.

Posted by: StarTrekker Jul 20 2009, 00:36 AM

What a load!

http://www.google.com.au/search?source=ig&hl=en&rlz=&=&q=define%3A+clan&btnG=Google+Search&meta=lr%3D&aq=f&oq=

I think that 3rd definition fits perfectly.

Do we have club fees? A president and treasurer?? No, clubs are a formal thing... not a bunch'o mates sticking together.

If you would like a better definition, we are a brotherhood more than a clan, and we have always been this way. Friendship comes first, games second. Anybody who thinks otherwise will lose interest in the clan and go inactive or just leave.

Posted by: Flamzypants Jul 20 2009, 06:50 AM

That may be why we're so few in number biggrin.gif It's much better sticking with one group of people, in my CS days I was changing clans every few months, wasn't much fun.

Posted by: xFactor Jul 20 2009, 20:14 PM

Flamzy we should play CS some time, we could get Eternal into it. biggrin.gif

Posted by: StarTrekker Jul 21 2009, 01:17 AM

I would prefer the company of a few closer friends rather than that of many acquaintances.

Posted by: Flamzypants Jul 21 2009, 08:43 AM

Sorry xFactor but America + UK = post-13661-1143531603.gif when it comes to FPS games. It's unbearable in CS. Download S4 league and play that - google - much better at handling lag and I'm on that a lot these days happy.gif

Posted by: Remixer Jul 22 2009, 04:21 AM

What is S4?

^ Me playing for 30 seconds or so, was just testing out xfire's recording ability.

Basically it's a shooter + sworder where you get a power (Anchoring, invisibility, flight etc). Got a touchdown mode and a deathmatch one. You rank up, get money, buy guns/clothes etc. It's a free game but you can spend money to buy slightly better items. Very fun ^^ Been playing it the last few weeks.

Got Remixer on biggrin.gif Who else wants some? Distance lag isn't really an issue.

Posted by: StarTrekker Jul 29 2009, 02:09 AM

Maybe after my system is reformatted....

Posted by: Flamzypants Jul 29 2009, 10:24 AM

If you can spare the time wink.gif Oo, try and get Daniel to play tongue.gif? He's got to be 5 by now right? My step brother always used to beat the crap out of me on a Finding Nemo playstation game, age 6... Granted I wasn't too enthused about playing but still ^^ How's he doing anyway? Been a while since you mentioned him.

Posted by: StarTrekker Jul 30 2009, 01:28 AM

He's 4 but he's finding his way around lots of game rather fast. He can't use a mouse and keys at the same time too well yet, but he's getting there.

He beat an 11 year old at connect-4 twice in a row this week ^^ More the 11 year old's bad play than his good play, but he won!!

Posted by: Flamzypants Jul 30 2009, 11:06 AM

That must have been embarrassing for the other kid o0.

Posted by: StarTrekker Jul 31 2009, 02:13 AM

Yes, I do believe it was ^^
