I'm the one that hit her---and I got her dead to rights .She had just taken out my buddy's fleet---and I locked her dions on the return . A bad case of she can't take her own medicine---so she tried dodging my attack by getting (s) very cowardly

I would also like to point out the Angle Blue has used a captcha to her advantage before.

:twisted: I seen the Debris Fields and watched this attack unfold from the Galaxy Screen... I watched Angel as she went (s), the subsequent debris field as Domina's ships hit and thought that was a shitty way to try and avoid a trap...

 From talking to Domina and seeing the battle reports... Angel's overall losses ranged about 200mil +/- a few mil... plus what she is going to lose in lost production... So her taking the (s) route to avoid a trap really wasn't in her best interest...

 She should have sucked up the loss... licked her wounds and boogied out of that sector...  :twisted:

Considering captcha's are to catch botters, the process should be amended to hurt only botters.  If someone fails a captcha disable PvE missions and espionage missions only.  Then put an in-game message where the game announcments go stating they failed a captcha and missions won't be re-instated until x time. (or if someone contacts BFG like they would for normally failing a captcha)

That way it keeps botters from mission spamming or people from carpet probing without using (s) as a shield.

:twisted: Called panic and Vanity.. I know some players would throw 100 mil resources to the winds rather then watch you take 10 mil from them..  :twisted: I think this might have been one of those cases..

Both me and Kip just tested it. You need to fail a CAPTCHA 11 times to get suspended.

wiped? 2k dios.... she loses more in 3 days mines (cuz it was a friday) that those dios and res are worth. and it only takes one missed captcha vs 11 failed. if she filled in the first one and didnt see another tab that had one its instant suspension.

there are players like that, victor. but angels pretty level headed.
