That moment when you...

Post by SPACEpotato1 » 10 Apr 2016, 09:29

Hello. And welcome to what may (MAY) become the most salt filled thread in existence. Basically, moments that make you super salty. As specific as possible, or else we're going to get all the marine players saying, "DAT CRUSHER" and all the alien players saying, "DAT SADAR", so like, one thing that has happened to you. Unless you have more than one. But...C-....Kay.

Here's something that happened to me once.

So it was my first specialist round, I rescued a puppy and 2 guys, we got back to the Sulaco (Puppy included), and I was talking to someone, when suddenly...

I crashed

And then I couldn't re-join for an hour or so.

I blame the 40 players.

...Alright that wasn't a very good example but it made me salty so...There.

That moment you realised that it was a bad idea for making this thread....

Just give it time......

Was bored, had an hour and decided to play CM. Came as a Bridge Officer, aliens board us, etc etc. Server lags out. Being me, I kept attempting to reconnect for good twelve minutes, repeatedly, and then I joined finally. I walk around, seeing aliens everywhere on the floor, it was like my birthday, I finished each one off.

Last night aliens decided it'd be GJ to murder the hell out of every marine in sight just because the Queen was SSD(despite having tons of eggs) They did this VIA 3 crushers, ravagers, hunters, etc. swarming groups of 1-2 marines. Got dedded(despite them hugging me, they didn't feel like waiting for the infect timer). Now see, I would've been fine with that had they left me outside hydro. But no. THis one runner decides they want to take it a step further. THey devour me and bring me to the hive..making me 100% uncloneable simply due to the fact they murderboned 90% of the marines already and a assault wasn't possible.

TL;DR, shitty meta aliens don't know they're supposed to infect. Despite it being a key point in lore. Though....I admire the cohesion they had to pull this off.

-Be a survivor
-have survivor turned off because I hate being meme rushed
-have a metal bat
-1v1ing a runner
-almost winning the fight
-runner starts to go back and forth doing a tackle->slash hit and run tactic when it started losing
-call him a hit and running survivor rushing f****t or something like that in LOOC
-die

This is the sole reason I wait until round starts before joining(I'm a marine main) instead of clicking ready. Nothing made me more saltier, hate xenos, and hate being a survivor than that moment.
