The terrifying lows,the dizzying highs..
..the creamy middles!
ahhh, the commander, the one class that probably goes through the most emotions during a game... or even a series of games. you know, you just had 2 or more victories in a row, you are just cruising in happy land, or what i refer to as COMM HIGH
but then the next day, you get in the cc, and can't do anything right. pain all around. rines not listening, strats not working out, aliens getting 3 hives by 10 minutes... this often pushes many commes into COMMOPHOBIA
. ahh, yes. commophobia, who hasn't had a nice bout of this? nothing but the most vet team can push a commander to take the chair of pain after a strong bout of commophobia
so then you do take the cc, renewed vigor to plan like Sun Tzu, strategize like Patton. but... then, for some reason, the rines won't listen!! they demand weapons before going anywhere!! anger.. rising, till you get that wonderful emotion called COMMRAGE
. the state in which yelling and berating is required to get the men to their waypoints. almost every server admin is goes pretty easy on a commander who has been pushed into COMMRAGE!! and it can be surprisingly effective, especially when your entire team is ramboing. and seem to have clan tags on.. but.. not NS clan tags.. :O
any other comm emotions you commanders have gone through? i go through that entire cycle pretty frequently, myself
