The lack of anything to do as an Engineering Tech.

I would like to see random power outages (That need to be fixed and don't just fix them selves), Jammed rail guns, machinery and console break downs, et cetera. This would wonders for the Engineering department.
Those are all really good ideas.

Doctors, researchers, or other civilians running around wearing marine helmets early in the round when we’re on code green. Likewise, marines running around wearing lab coats or other immersion breaking stuff.

People saluting CTs, SLs, and MPs and calling them “sir”

People who open the fire, O2, and marine lockers and don’t close them afterwards.

Oh, I forgot one thing: dying. That shit sucks.

The fact that there's a stupidly high number of MT's who never touch the engines. Most of the time I'm the only guy that keeps them running after the first start up.

I hate never getting my ammo as a sniper. That and braindead marines who just sit in front of me after being told repeatedly not to get in my line of fire. Does my head in. Even worse when you are firing and they walk in front of you and get hit by an incendiary round and act like you did it on purpose after walking in front of your barrel.

Eh. Can be hit and miss with CL if your faxes get answered or not depends on the amount of staff on/active. I think I play when fewer adminis are on though and hardly get fax responses. Doesn't matter though I still love CL for the RP and will play even whilst knowing I won't get responses!

Can you really blame them though, setting up the engines is the most tedious task ever. It’s much more fun to go electrify the brig doors or something.

Bubble Nests: Aka resin nests surrounded by doors. Even when I play xeno it's more fun IMO to have desperate marine escape attempts.
Dying way before the rest of the squad.
Along a similar vein, surviving the squad as the only living original member. This almost sucks worse than the previous thing.
Joining a round in the last 5 minutes only to win a marine victory then watch everyone talk in OOC about how amazing it was and seeing the list of 20 medals and the heartfelt praise of the CO. I get so envious every time :(

Maybe if you stopped speaking russian, muhreens could pay attention to what you are saying.

Obviously you're asking them to say "it", go back to english cryo school.

People that go Doctor late round and have no idea how to play.
Medics that inject you with so much shit you OD before you get back to the ship.
Cowards, like come on man, I love the moments when I can run at a few xenos nade in hand and just blow the shit out of them to save others. That shit is fun.

I love it when I'm being revived by a medic so he takes off my armor, dropping my weapon to the ground which is immediately stolen or scavanged for parts.

Bonus points if it's a flamethrower that's almost empty while I have the extra fuel tanks in my bag.

Best moments are when you're a specialist and someone steals your weapon even though they can't use it and you're right next to it.
