when all the good rines leave at once
Alright, so heres what happened... we were playing Hera 7 VS 7 and I had an amazing marine team... really great group of guys that went out got me all the Res I could possibly want and locked down a hive, then.... my best 3 players leave (one had dinner and the other one's computer crashed.. I'm not sure about the third) and suddenly the table's have turned agaisnt me as my locked down hive is retaken and the rest of the rine team can't hold onto any res.... I had about 300 res in the pool because we were fully upgraded and my heavy train hadn't died yet... so I thought... "hmmm lets relocate to land pand!!!!" and so we did!
this was the base set up for my land pad last stand
1 elected RT on the pad
8 elected TFs surronding the RT
2 IPs built on boxes
1 armory Built next to boxes used as stepping stoll to get onto boxes
1 CC on boxes
1 armslab on boxes
10 or so Turrets surronding Elected TFs
and so the stage was set for me to hold off the alien scum till a rescue ship came to the land pad to save my men...... the first wave of onos was taken by surprised, with 3 hives they all used charge only to ram themselves getting caught in the mess of my Electric Fence of Death! I had 5 or so HMGers that tagged the rest of them as they ran back up the ramp... the taste of victory was in our mouth and another wave or two of onoses hit us hard but we held firm! oh yes we did. after the aliens decided that oni weren't working they went for AR fades, this is where things started to get ugly. I had plenty of R4k res to drop a handfull of GLs that held them at bay while my nilla rines welded the TFs and RT. finally after 45 minutes of holding off the 3 hive aliens with onyl one RT income we surcomed when 3 gorge/lerk combos (lerk list was on this server) bombed my TFs down and we fell apart to the next wave of onos...
even tho I lost this game... it was the funnest time of my life, all my marines were laughing on mics and having a blast, and the aliens thought it was pretty fun to. so I just wanted to share that expierence with you
