And to me the potential this game had is what makes Hexage's shadiness an even greater shame.
What they did in this case is nothing short of pathetic.
I have spent hours playing Robotek, which I suppose is the reason I can really rag on it. I enjoy multi-player, when I am playing other human beings. If I appear to be playing the AI, and it rolls four or five triples in two or three rounds, I just forfeit and start again.
Something even worse than playing the AI, is playing people who actually gave Hexage money. When playing some of those guys, you'd better be braced for multiple unmaker omegas, and a high rate of triple hacks.
Example: I JUST got finished playing a game where I had two maxed out robots, and a maxed out shield. I also had over 400 points. My opponent (whom I suspect was either the AI, or a person who had paid Hexage money) had no robots, no shield and under 30 points. After two triple hacks in a row, he had both of my bots, then acquired a shield. The next round, he rolled triples on the shield, then triples on another robot, then rolled again to get two other robots. That was four triples in two turns. I lost. It's been like this over and over tonight.
