|Woohoo, let's hear it for the Terrans and their scrap metal underdog units. :) I'm still finding it hard to believe you gave the guy an ally vic after he taunted you multiple times though. Perhaps Commander Vegas is getting soft? (j/k) :P |
|What a great story. I never knew that you could have allied vics on ladder games. And I too have a deep dark dirty secret of liking to use valkeries. |
|Crap, it wasnt a ladder game! I will change that. |
|Excellent beginning story. Got me in the mood and all gushy inside. Great battle. I myself was experiencing connection problems this past weekend and disconnected. Nice to know there are people who are understanding. |
|why the hell did you ally with that guy? :)|
If I were Johnny, I NEVER would have allied with him. He was dissen you guys and insulting you.. oh well! I will kill him!

|Kudos! Exemplary report, Johnny. You have officially raised the bar. Being a writer, I'd have to say that this is easily the most well composed and entertaining battle report I've read, ever; nevermind the screenshot bonus points. Excellent work!|
Mark, you're going to have to pick things up a bit to contend with reporting of this caliber. ;)
|Nice, JV, as usual. (: Valkryies may have trouble with equal cost "cheese" corsair squadrons, but they shred through wraiths and mutalisks like they're made of aluminum foil (in fact, I think wraiths ARE made of aluminum foil).|
On a side note, you ever see a nuke and 2 EMP's obliterate a screenful of protoss tech buildings? (:
'Have fun with that last gateway, you're gonna need it!'
|Hey Smoked-Pork thanks for the comments. BTW do you want your bribe money as cash or check? |
|Whoa. A great effort by the master himself. |
|Great report, you didnt make me look to bad. :) |
I just have one question:
Why didnt you use the infested terrans to finish his base???? Thats why i wanted to stay alive, watching infested's crush the winers base would have been great.
|Good job bro! I personally rarely use valks and vultures cuz I can't handle the micro there without losing most of my other attention macroing, teching and expanding. Good read, nice tactics, and good job! |
|Chargon: Well I didn't feel like sitting around waiting for the infested terrans to get built. Besides, when I 12 Battle cruisers at 3/3 little can convince me to not attack with them. =] |
|Johnny: I just like those things |
I even set my own building down so one would run in to it.:)
|#14 Smoked Pork|
|Johnny, I'd prefer money order. Thanks. |
|#15 Templar of doom|
|good report but there were a few places where he could have attacked your base with only 3 marines in it, also early air but he must have never really seen your base too much. |
|Wow! Great report! You have an excellent writing style that makes the game seem so real. Good job. |
|That was like... a campaign from the single player game! I gotta try that! |
|Ahh... finally someone that knows the power of mine containment :) good BR Vegas, as usual. |
|Cool writing style. I really liked it. |
|I didnt finish reading it cause this "SCV's report that" crap. No offense, but this isn't nessecarily a "Narrative" crap site. Next time u make a report say|
he made a cc to the left
A lone SCV reported the apocolypse of a command center under construction on the expansion at waypoint alpha.
|Renegade95: Thanks for the comments. However it appears most people prefer my "narrative" style. I didn't fail to include strategy mixed in with the story. |
|Great report Johnny! Just one question. How do the mines keep terrans contained, when they can just walk out with 12 marines and shoot any mines that pop up? |
|When the mines are closely packed, they poped out at the same time so marines can't shoot all of them down. |
|#24 Bob the Newt|
|Your being way too nice to renegade Johnny. |
|Hey Johnny, did anyone besides you rate the report. You're the only 10!! (Then again, I haven't check ~CB~'s ratings.) You desereved it though! |
|We at Battle Reports Online do not rate our own reports. |
|I think someone should give me a 9. I don't think I deserve a ten for this really. |
|whore = Johnny_Vegas |
good battle report
what were you thinking allying?
keep the BR's coming.
|I laf at renegade becuz he tells johnny wat the site is about =] |
|why am i reading this old report? and why did ducky? |
|same reason as u Krebster, its hella good|
and if i was u, i wouldn't have allied with that whining little...
|who is commenting on anceint reports!|
(its 10/01/00 y2k didn't kill us)
|#34 Carnal XTC|
|Ahhh sexy report. ;) 1/2/00|
And true enough, valks always win against wraith happy terran-bitches.
|nice report, entertaining as always|
but 2 10s?? There wasn't anything special here to deserve 10s...
|wow, it is an ancient report. Oh well, Johnny is my idol and I want to be just like him when I grow up =P|
yay for terran!
|Yeah sleeper, this getting two 10's is pretty funny. But this was a report from another place and another time... Times have changed. =] |
|Gee. . .looks like it's time to recreate this battle into this:|
Grandpa SCV: I want to tell you about the time of the apocolypse of a command center under construction on the expansion at waypoint alpha.
|Hey how did you get a pic of the minimap while you were playing. Unless.....you were cheating! |
|you know, that's an awfully good question! oh wait.. not really. |
|#41 <font color=yellow> |]agomar|
|he must've had shared vision or good recon ;)|
Great battlereport! I love reading those old ones sometimes. Funny to remember those days ;)
Cattle Bruiser owned!
Hey this is your first br I read . . . and I'm going straight to the next one! :oD
|An insight ito the past. It <i>was</i> well-written, even by today's standards. Actually I'm only commenting so I see what the comment number is (today's 3rd December 2000). |
|Excellent BR (BTW today is 19/01/01 =D)|
Agreed with Zumbooruk ;)
|Agreed! Bravo, JV! Today is 3/10/01! :] (Month, day, year) |
Still looks like a 10 report to me.
|I'd probably give it a 7 or an 8 today...|
That's just a testament to how the standards have grown since then.
|Oh yeah, 10/11/01 |
I dunno, it's definately higher than a seven. Probably a 9, maybe an 8. Sure it doesn't have that "special something" that makes a report a 10, but it's still a great report.
|Whoops, my bad on date :). It was actually|
|January 1st, 2002|

|Vegas > all |
|I think i might be the last comment, November 24, 2003 right now|
awesomely written will always compensate for lack of massive photoshop tricks.
todays reporters could learn a lot
|December 1st, 2003|
Although I wasn't around then, I can tell I would of liked the old days. There seems to have been a lot less flaming, and everyone seems to have been so nice. It's unfortunate that the site has gone downhill from there. Sometimes I wish I could recreate the atmosphere of a community as nice as this one used to be.
Johnny Vegas appears to me to have been not only a good writer and battle reporter, but an innovative Starcraft player. He also seems to have been extremely nice (an increasingly rare quality nowadays, only four short years later). A nice bit of work is displayed here, and although by today's standards I'm afraid to say it wouldn't get a ten, back then it surely deserved this high rating and more.
I wonder where Johnny Vegas is now?
13 - May - 'O4
|I love this report. No matter how many times I read it it still is a great battlereport. Mines and valks are killer.|
|wow other people are reading old reports like me? Its the 30th of july 2004 and I thought that I was the only person going through the hall of fame. Good reporting Vegas!|
|the Vegas in his prime!!|
|btw 8/16/04 |
|This comment section is like a living historical account. BTW its 8/18/04, I was 23 when I wrote this, now I'm 28. Wow.|
I'm pretty amazed this got a 10, but that just goes to show you how much the art of battle reporting has grown.
As I write this, we are in the process of revamping the site, so that we stay fresh for another 5 years.
|Last. Oh shit, oh fuck, please let me be last.|
|Too bad man, too fucking bad. |
|Hello, from the WORLD OF TOMORROW(9/6/04) |
