Can we assimilate pie? It would make being a drone so much more comfortable...

Quick rules clarification question: The rules state, "Players may only be retired if they suffer from at least one lasting injury (stat decrease or niggling injury)."

So this means that I can't fire a rookie, 0spp player, and replace him with another in order to reduce my treasury and avoid the expensive mistakes roll for my ranked borg team, correct?

Not that this is a major issue, but I figured I'd confirm this before readying my team

I've never done that on any of my teams. If expensive mistakes hit, you should be able to build up more gold fairly quickly and marauders are cheap.

By the letter of the law laid down by Queen Rabe it should not be done. However, the spirit of the law is meant to keep you from firing players you just don't want any longer.

That's what I figured but I thought I'd double check. As I said, it's not a big deal either way. I'll just risk losing the gold. It replenishes pretty quickly anyway with these guys.

Also, thanks for the player pics! I'll probably assimilate them for my team

League Invasion Cube 001 reporting. There have been three encounters in our scheduled invasion since our last report.

Encounter 6 of 8 was with a squad of skeletons attired in gold. They appeared to be dead, so resistance to assimilation was unnecessary, and futile. Hive sent a large inducement package to assist in the battle. League Invasion Cube 001 was victorious!

Six of Sixteen was upgraded with Block

2-1 (1/1/0 -3/0/0)
Full report has been logged to the Hive Mind


Encounter 7 of 8 was against more dead. Again much bigger opposition, and the Hive send a large inducement package. Unfortunately the package contained unusable dirty goods (which were not used). Communication needs to be improved. The battle ended in a draw.

Eight of Sixteen was upgraded with Thick Skull

1-1 (1/0/0 -1/0/0)
Full report has been logged to the Hive Mind


Encounter 8 of 8 was against a squad full of targets prime for assimilation - Dark Elves. The inducement assistance package from the Hive was so big there was 50k that was unusable. The elves resisted all attempts at assimilation - Resistance is Futile, and we suffered a heavy defeat.

Two of Sixteen was upgraded with Block.
Four of Sixteen has been decommissioned and replaced with Four of Sixteen.
Six of Sixteen and Eight of Sixteen will miss the next encounter due to maintenance.

1-4 (2/0/0 - 2/1/0)
Full report has been logged to the Hive Mind


The regular scheduled invasion is over. Over 8 encounters League Invasion Cube 001 failed to assimilate any units. Victory was only experienced in 1 battle, with 3 stalemates, and 4 defeats. The mission was a failure.

1/4/3 (15/4/0 - 15/5/2)

Only one encounter was against a smaller squad. Average TV difference -494k

Next encounter will be a third tier playoff.

The hive mind has been updated. Frenzy is now in the third slot.

Kzarik had great success and now holds a pair of elf bodies. One can be put into service immediately and the other should be stored in the depot for future use. Welcome to the secret sector 002.

Congratulations to UKMDnick who becomes the first cube to assimilate an orc. That body will be an orc renegade.

Carry on everyone.

RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.

This is going to be fun. My guess is that frenzy is going to be in that third spot for a while. What does a frenzied borg drone look like anyway?

By the way, does anyone have a link to the SL icons? I want to update our assimilation page some time soon.

I just updated the assimilation record for the borg. Thus far 74 specimens have been assimilated.

Take a look under the assimilation tab here:

There are three skills on 5. Frenzy, Guard, Thick Skull. Do we get a free choice, or is there some sort of tiebreaker which puts Frenzy on top?

Sorry. No choice. The most recent skill to be acquired goes to the top of the list. Frenzy is the most recent skill to be assimilated 5 times so it is now ahead of guard and thick skull.
