Do you know what grinds my gears?

Do you know what really grinds my gears?


Losing to the flagship when it was at one hull point! One! It was one of my best runs too! :x

You know what really grinds my gears?

A Leto Missile setting Life Support on fire with two flames. Then after you get it extinguished and patched up, they drop another one and set it on fire again with two fires.

Dammit Crystal B, why do you have to have that weakness?

Oh I got a couple of these. Most of mine involve missiles.

Clone Bay getting hit right as your away team dies.
Doors getting hit right after you open a ton of them to space to put out the fire in your busted O2 room.
Your teleporter getting hit right before you were going to pull your away team back to keep the enemy ship from jumping away with them.

How about you attack a Rebel supply ship as the Shrike and you lose your Lanius in the process but that's ok, you have a Level 2 Clone Bay. Shouldn't be a problem, they'll be back in a second or two and oh, enemy is all dead now. Ok, that's good so let's steal these supplies, alright what's the...

WHY WOULD YOU PUT THE GOODS INSIDE THE CLONE BAY GUYS!?

Flying the Steath A and having your first ship have a mini beam and a beam drone. And cloaking is disabled.
Having 4 BL2's and encountering someone who disables your weapons.
Venting the room, turn off oxygen for power and forget to turn it on again.
I do random stuff and surf on the fourms. That's about it.

Looks like you were caught by the Beam Master himself! There's no escape from his superior beam weaponry which has befallen countless foes!
Fire the beams!

How about having 4 Zoltans in the shield room (you ain't ioning ME, Mr. McIonperson). Enemy shoots a breach missile and then mind controls the room. The 3 non-brainwashed Zoltans all take 1 shot at the brainwashed one, taking him down below 60 health, right before the missile hits doing 60 damage to each Zoltan in the room.

Ouch. Talk about Total Party Kill.

I once flew an automated ship with 8 Zoltan onboard (The Gutei! Shameless plugging!) and one of my crew got Mind Controlled during the Last Stand just as I had jumped away from the enemy.
So as soon as I had arrived at the next beacon, my poor temporarily brainwashed for a millisecond Zoltan got a facefull of lasers and died :(

There is a way to stop your crew from firing on their friend as they return to normal and that's to tell them to return to their stations or to move elsewhere but you can't do that during the FTL flash. So yeah, RIP Zoltan Ten-Kai, you put on a show.

But yeah that's horrifying, losing all those Zoltan to one missile strike :cry:

Do you know what else really grinds my gears?


Playing on the laptop your family gave you and having trouble playing at anything more than 5fps and still having problems :evil:


The worst part is that I got it because my old one got destroyed!
