<div class="IPBDescription">but what a funny ending it was</div> Well, I'm glad to report that last night there were a really good set of games, only a few were unbalanced.

One on ns_nothing, we'd messed up at the beginning, I can't remember how, probably a relocation to powersilo went wrong (no-one would comm for ages), so we were left in base with a grand total of 0 res, an ip armoury and arms lab (no upgrades) and one res node in base. This is about 3 or 4 mins into the game, so the aliens have cara and lots of the map up already.

Moomin papa managed to get to the vent that joins the ladder section outside powersilo to Ominous Kismet, and we saved up enough to plant a cc there (we were rapidly losing the fight for base (but we'd managed to hold on to a second res node for about 2 minutes, and had by this point got armour 1 and motion tracking, somehow).
We'd told the aliens that we'd messed up with the res, but we carried on playing anyway.

So we got an ip and armoury up in that section near power/ominous, and all of the team (bar one guy.. grr!) huddled into that spot (after losing marine start quite spectacularly when the fades came along) and FILLED it with mines.

We must've had about 5 packs (it's a VERY small space and our res were tight).
We sat there, getting ready for the amusing acid rocket that was surely to come. I was aobut to get the screenshot of all the mines (it was very impressive) when BOOOOMM - 6 deaths on mines to jah (fade).

So maybe I was wrong to always get annoyed when games go horribly wrong, you can still have very amusing fun in ridiculous situations.

Sorry but no screenies <!--emo&:(--><img src='' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='sad.gif'><!--endemo-->

    There's something even funnier than having multi mine kills as a fade : xenociding mines inside a vent relocation... the marines are like WTH ?

    yeah I did that once aswell, but it was on eclipse and we had way too much res (like 250)
    So i hopped in the cc dropped like 20 sets of mines, and we dropped them all in our base, but then when the fades came and opened the doors (I believe one fade even shot once) the server crashed, nobody saw the explosion while we were all in base standing on a mine <!--emo&:(--><img src='' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='sad.gif'><!--endemo-->
