I do agree that was probably the least exciting DDD out of the four... I think the problem is that it's just too hard to contest the contruction of the thing. It's way easier to save up and just let it go off and then rebuild everything (unless you get screwed and don't log on and lose everything to overflow *grumble*).
I'm just happy to have been able to regain all my tech levels, my hull, and my monument before you set it off.
I was considering a sudden sneak attack, I had pulled together a ton of EUR... but didn't get going soon enough, I guess....
Congrats, Xade! I did get pretty lucky with the rampage, but you were even luckier with the connection outage during the storm turn on the day before. The Nomen had resolved to land exchange you, and complete and set it off right then and there! We definitely had the resources to do it, but we wouldn't have been able to set it off due to the holiday - which would have made for some really exciting pre-apocalypse fighting as we tried to hold onto the thing. Maybe next time ...
I think people have to start nuking when you get to about 70%. If you're already past 80%, everyone assumes you can make it the rest of the way anyway, and nuking will only provoke you to do it sooner.
