In this puzzle, you played Battleship against Tanis and Jenn.
You were playing Battleship; they were rolling dice to determine where they hit: "The dice roll before I played determined my move. I just rolled a D10 for row and another for column. How nice I was depended entirely on how much the players entertained me. If I was being very entertained, I would play repeat moves (play moves I had already played). If I was only being mildly entertained, I would not repeat moves. If I was not being entertained at all I would play aggressively, not repeating moves and using some basic strategies for eliminating possible moves."
All you had to do was stay alive; you had a single two, they had every other ship, spelling out the word NET.
