Awesome thread!

I've spent more than a few hours trying to either take key control points in that city or defend them back in my active WW2OL days. Amongst them were some hours-long epic slugfests, there were…  :)

Map looks a bit different than I remember, though. New names.

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

I suspect the people that were already there might have a different view of that ;)  Especially after you started dumping all your criminals on the shore and sailing away.
