ISC vs. Gorn

**The following is a write up from William for his game with JP**

Here's a writeup of my 1 March 2019 tournament game between myself, flying the ISC cruiser and JP and his Gorn command cruiser.
Turn one: my speed plot was a 15/28 split. JP on the upper hand, started off at speed 14 and then kicked it up to 28 after impulse 16
I started out side slipping to my right for the first eight impulses, then turned left. At range 13 I opened fire with the PPD bidding war for all four pulses; in fact I hit with every PPD pulls I fired this game. After closing the range to 10 I fired my first and Enveloping Plasma torpedo. JP responded by launching a type S at me and then turned away. We spent the rest of turn one running the torpedoes out of energy.
Turn 2: I again plotted a speed split 14/28 This time, I moved quickly at the start of the turn so that I could finish running out JP's first torpedo. Once that hit for minimal damage, I turned back again toward him, right about the time he turned back toward me and fired a second type S. One I reached range 10, I watched my second enveloping torpedo. JP turned away and ran it out for minimal damage to all six shields.
Turn 3: I close to range 13 and fired my PPD again-hitting for four pulses in doing only slight damage to his front shield because of the massive amounts of show reinforcement he put up. About range eight, I proceed to shoot five Phaser I at his front shield, doing enough damage to score 5 internals. When he rushed into attempt to even the score, I turned away and launched one of my rear firings type F torpedoes. Rather than take this on a front shield JP
Decided to empty his phasers into it and taken on one of his flank shields.
Turn 4: as I was still arming torpedoes and PPD, I elected to run like a scared puppy, exchanging long-range phaser fire, turning toward him at the end of the turn recurring the fire of my soon to be reloaded PPD.
Turn 5 JP ran into the tournament barrier attempting to get away from one of my Envelopers. Using reserve warp he was able to begin Tacing toward me as the turn ended.
Turn 6: JP plotted Speed 10 as I approached him. His slow speed allowed me to approach. At range 8 I declared Emergency deceleration and hit him with all six pulses of overloaded PPD, stripping many of his weapons. He fired a Type S from a destroyed launcher and a Type from another. I launched yet another Enveloper and launched a Wild weasel the next impulse - he surrendered after the Enveloper hit.

Pel had a solid game plan of hunting me down and trying to corner me. He got close enough on T2 to knock down my #5 shield and do 3 internals. On T3 he locked a tractor on me that I couldn't fight. He just didn't have enough weapons to really hurt me since I turned a fresh shield to him. He did blast down the #4 and do 8 more internals. I lost 2xph-3, one or two power and mostly hull. I had previously weakened his #1,2 and 3 shields with standard QWT's and phasers.

After he tractored me I performed an HET and launched 5 overloaded QWT's which when through the #6 netting me 20 internals including an F-torp a phaser or two and some power. He dropped the tractor to run which allowed me to WW he SP drones from T1. I held two other drones (type IV's) in tractors to deal with later (with two manned shuttles and some phasers). As he ran I was able to get a shot on his almost gone #3 with 4xph-1's at range 3 which netted another 9 internals. Nick conceded at that point as he was out of plasma with the #3 and #6 shield down and the #1 and #2 about half and a bit of damage on the #5. My next impulse would have been a warp TAC bringing two more PH-1's into arc which I rolled just to see damage and it would have been another 9 points through the downed #3. That would have been 11 internals on me vs. 38 on Nick.

It was a very fun game and I really had a great time. Our buddy Steve was watching the game and wants to learn and play a game so that was a great plus. He, Nick and I are going to get together for a Frigate teaching game in the next couple of weeks.
