Things that are fun in Critical Mass (poll closed)

Post by Quorad » Tue Sep 27, 2005 6:23 pm

Fun stuff:
1: blasting static defenses from far away and getting 20 or so kills from it.
2: chasing 3 banshees through the darkness and slaughtering them with your own banshee.
3: hyperspacing out of battle with most of your ship messed up, no missles remaining, 3 ships on your tail, and missles coming at you from most directions.
4: buying a really cool ship
5: making a cool mission
6: being promoted
7: getting lots of kills
8: getting a gold cross
9: posting on this forum
10: killing enemy ships

Not fun stuff:
1: getting your defenses killed
2: being chased
3: enemy hyperspacing when they have your missles on their tail
4: getting a low amount of credits
5: failing a mission
6: getting no kills
7: being kiled with one shot
8: having your squadron decimated
9: no one responding on this forum
10: not getting the chance to buy your favorite ship

One thing I would like to add is: exiting out when you die because you were angry, but can't load the game because your commander is dead and you won't be able to see yourself on the ranking list.
(I had around 15 gold crosses)

Fun:
Killing 4 Warriors in a battle (very very satisfying)
Wrecking havoc on civilians
Destroying many ships
Destroying misbehaving allies
When your squadron hyperspaces and the enemy can't locate your freighter/shuttle/etc.

Not Fun:
Destroying the Drone in command of the enemy squadron first
Fighting 3 rings of Super Turrets
Losing wingmates you've had for a long time (I had this one Breeze for like 20 missions; I was unhappy when it died)
Destroying a Hurricane, 2 Anacondas and a Nightmare only to receive a Medal of Conspicuous Barvery

Not Fun:
Having destroyed or seen off the enemy fleet being unable to find the enemy target (freighter, politician, colonizer) and spending ages flying a search grid over the whole sector .... dull.

Fun:
Being the only ship left on attack enemy planet

Not fun:
Being the first to die on defend earth

And of course? FRIENDLY FIRE! The most frustrating way to loose a commander.

Fortune favors the bold, at least we die quickly.
