Despite 11 gang fouls the borg could only manage to remove on opponent from the field of battle and that was simply a miss next game.

Competitive Invasion Cube 002

Third Mission Report:

2022-08-21 Open Competitive Sector
Enemy Force: Underworld
Victory 1-0 via Concession and Retirement of the Team
Subject Assimilated: Image
Request Dodge and Animosity be uploaded to the Hive Mind
Upgrade attained by: One of Fourteen (Block) and Six of Fourteen (Block)
Sustained Injuries: None

Full report has been logged

As a point of interest, even after assimilation the subject still harboured it's innate Animosity. Does this make them more or less suitable for Assimilation? The match Officials seemed to be too scared to penalize our Drones as our arguments caused 2 Sending Off decisions to be reversed by Turn 3...

Hive Mind updated!

No properly integrated Borg can develop or sustain animosity. Behaviour of drone Thirteen of Fourteen, Competitive Invasion Cube 002 will be analysed and evaluated in the future.

(You got yourself a special drone - awesome!! Very Happy )

Views on setting a time period during which we determine which Cube has done the most for the hive?, eg, most skills harvested. Happy to do the admin via a Google spreadsheet sheet with a link on the group page.

Well, feel free to do so. Officially there cannot be any competition between cubes, of course. Wink

Report does not indicate any assimilation.
No captives with the skills Dodge and Animosity registred.
Upload denied.

(Skills will only be counted by the Hive Mind if a player has been killed via block or foul. Welcome to the Competitive sector! Smile )

Competitive Invasion Cube 002

Fourth Mission Report:

2022-08-23 Open Competitive Sector
Enemy Force: Orc
Loss
Subject Assimilated: None
Upgrade attained by: None
Sustained Injuries: Three of Fourteen MNG
Minor Incident caused 10k Damage to our Cube

Full report has been logged

Winning streak came to end in a dramatic way, failing to both score or more importantly inflict even the remotest injury to the green skinned opposition. We will regroup and move on to the next encounter and endeavour to assimilate more drones. First game for the Vermin Drone was less impressive than the rest of team in an all round non-performance game.

Resistance is FUTILE!!

Competitive Invasion Cube 002

Fifth Mission Report:

2022-08-31 Open Competitive Sector
Enemy Force: Khorne
Victory
Subject Assimilated: None
Upgrade attained by: One of Fourteen (Frenzy); Seven of Fourteen (Block)
Sustained Injuries: Ten of Fourteen - Death ; Thirteen of Fourteen - Niggling Injury
Minor Incident caused 10k Damage to our Cube

Full report has been logged

After another lack lustre start to the game, our strange opposition removed the useless Vermin Drone and things took a turn for the better. It appears that Borg Cube have an affinity with only rolling 1d during the game as we rode our luck consistently rolling POWs to knock holes in the defence facing us.

One of Fourteen paid particular close attention to the furious nature of our opposition and has upgraded his skill set with Frenzy after seeing it's potential (ref. maiming the useless Rat!!)

Resistance is FUTILE!!

Yes because we can only acquire skills that have been assimilated.

Competitive Invasion Cube 004

First Mission Report:

2022-09=03 Open Competitive Sector
Enemy Force: Snotling
Victory
Subject Assimilated: None
Upgrade attained by: Six of Sixteen (Block);
Sustained Damage: Two of Sixteen and Eleven of Sixteen will miss the next encounter

Full report has been logged

Cube 004 entered the Competitive Sector in the area known as the Black Box. There it encountered a band of feral sub species that are incompatible and unfit for assimilation. Every effort was made to assimilate skills, or the larger species that accompanied the group. The efforts were in vain.

Still, the encounter was a victory for the cube as it made it's initial push into hostile controlled territory.

Competitive Invasion Cube 004

Second Mission Report:

2022-09-04 Open Competitive Sector
Enemy Force: Orc
Draw
Subject Assimilated: None
Upgrade attained: None
Sustained Damage: Four of Sixteen will miss the next encounter

Venturing further into the Competitive sector, Cube 004 encountered the well known Orc species. Unfortunately, once again no subjects were obtained for assimilation. Hand to hand combat ended in a stalemate with neither side able to land a definitive blow.

Subjects would be valuable for assimilation as they seem to be more sturdy than most species.

Sustained Injuries: Eight of Fourteen - Niggling Injury ; Nine of Fourteen - AG-

Outnumbered early on, team's focus was lacking possible communication issues with the Hive? We are considering the possibility of an error in Assimilation with the Rodent, whilst he missed this game his negative presence was felt...

Resistance is FUTILE!!
