You know, you are going to have to put Wanderer's name into your game credits as someone who can beat 10/10 in a fair fight.
We probably do need a list like that but I'd probably miss some names.  Darke did it in the 2.x days I think (it was a pretty specific setup, two Teleporter Turtles, iirc, so doesn't really count but it was possibly the first such victory recorded).  Fruden did it in the 3.x days (http://www.arcengames.com/forums/index.php/topic,6100.0.html , and
http://www.arcengames.com/forums/index.php/topic,7280.0.html against two technologist AIs, for goodness sake; that was when waves were hard-capped at 2000 each, iirc).

Man, seeing those 3.x screenshots made me realize how much I miss the minimap and the score/player list display.
I can sort of understand why the minimap was removed though. It turned out to be a major performance hog, right?

I appreciate the compliment, and thank you.  However, I'm not sure that's warranted until I beat 10/10 after these balance changes.
... and then we'll have cake.

Nah, 10/10 even in its semi-nerfed state was quite a deed.  I'm sure the AI would like to throw a commemorative party.

With Cake.
