Ranked Invasion Cube 023 reporting in. our most recent encounter ended in victory and even an assimilation. However, despite our many efforts to assimilate worthy adversaries, namely a troll and a highly skilled ogre, we only managed to secure a lowly unskilled combatant very similar to our own newly created drones. We will clearly have to increase our efforts in future encounters. Drone Four of Fourteen managed to upgrade its combat skills, making it near impossible to take down.

Secret League Invasion Cube 001 returned to the forested planet in the system to restock on supplies and gather materials for expansion. Upon landing the expedition party encountered resistance from the sentient flora and their minions. Eventually the beings were successfully repelled. However, nothing was gained from the encounter.

Drone Six has become an efficient blocker and Drone Eight has been upgraded with a thickened cranium.

Full battle report has been sent to the hive mind for analysis.

After being reminded of this 'collective' by the podcast, I checked it out. Seems up my street Smile

Ranked Invasion Cube 026 drops out of warp and establishes conscious with the collective.

WE ARE BORG.

After 3 encounters with alien species, twice against species 3259 and once against species 5618, an assimilation has yet to occur, although some drone units have received upgrades.

RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.

League Invasion Cube 001 reporting. The fourth encounter of our scheduled invasion was against an interesting mix of specimens. Three varieties of interest for assimilation, Troll, Rat, Goblin.

The enemy was a substantially larger force, but Cube 001's use of Master Support secured 6xRR from the enemy. The underworld were completely overpowered in the first half of the encounter, and very few remained on the battlefield. However, all resisted assimilation. Resistance is Futile.

The enemy regrouped and returned attack with great vigour. Units Nine of Sixteen and Twelve of Sixteen took fatal damage and were transferred to the Body Depot. All Cube units were removed from the battlefield. This would usually mean defeat, but the enemy were held back for another stalemate.

Nine of Sixteen has been replaced with Nine of Sixteen
Twelve of Sixteen has been replaced with Twelve of Sixteen
One of Sixteen has been removed from the next encounter for maintenance.

Ten of Sixteen has been upgraded with Thick Skull.

1-1 (2/1/0 - 4/1/2)

Are Invasion Cubes required to maintain the inital supply of Re-rolls or can they be added and discarded?

After team creation there is no requirement on rerolls. My understanding is that they can be discarded. I now use 3 rerolls.

When one of you manages to assimilate a big guy, you may want to use the custom pics below. They are the best I could find on the web. Here is an Ogre, Minotaur, and Troll respectively.

League Invasion Cube 001 reporting. The fifth encounter of our scheduled invasion was against a much bigger force of hairy faced bare chested savages.

They resisted, Resistance is Futile. And we suffered another defeat. At the end of the battle a large Yeti specimen was downed, then attacked on the ground. The unit was damaged, but was not able to be assimilated.

Four of Sixteen has been upgraded with Block.

0-1 (3/0/0 - 3/0/0)

An absolutely crazy game, where the Borg never gave up.
We lost the ball in the first half, and the Norse had 3 turns to score. They learned a harsh lesson, decided to surf a borg unit on T8 before scoring [SKULL][SKULL]

But it was the second half when things went nuts. The Ball was kicked out and was gifted to a St5 Ulf. Getting it back was going to be near impossible. But rather than give up and go yeti hunting, the Borg went for the ball:
Dodge into cage 6+ [6], -2D [POW][POW/PUSH] !!!
Ball recovered by Norse
Dodge into partial cage 5+ [5], 1D [POW]
Ball recovered by Norse
Dodge 4+, 3+, 1D [POW]
Ball recovered by Norse

Was a tough one to lose with all that help from Nuffle

Well done Ranked Invasion Cube 026. The hive mind has been updated. The impact of your contribution has been significant.

There has been no ruling on Journeyman Borg. It had not yet been an issue.

My recommendation is to not use them.

In an effort to check the accuracy of the collective, I went through this thread. I am unable to verify that everything is 100% accurate as the records in this thread seem to be incomplete. (Some battle reports were likely sent via PM to the Rabe and Freshmn)

However, I did find that the 5 individuals below were all assimilated by the borg. All 5 had guard. Therefore I am updating the hive mind and Guard has moved up the skill list.
