<rant> Last night, I popped onto the BW server and eventually, round came Scarabae. I jumped in my heavy, ran off to the enemy base, and after battling my way through mutliple nasty people, lots of annoying turrets and mines, I got the flag. I also had virtually no health left, but, I was in a heavy, and I had the flag
I dropped off the enemy base, *crunch* and ended up standing there with the flag, in a heavy underneath the enemy base.
Team> I have the enemy flag, am under nme base, need APC pickup.
This message was repeated in varying modes for a full 10 minutes and nothing turned up.
Eventually, the enemy found out where I was, and I had to battle 5 of the gits, in a heavy with the flag. I killed every last one of them (watching them slide down the hill into a mortar is a defininte plus in my book)...
And then a light (on my side) turns up. "Drop the Flag, Let me Cap it For You" he cries, dancing around me like some sort of buzzing insect. Unfortunately, TD was off so I could but just sit there.
There was no way I was giving him the flag. Dammit, for 10 minutes I'd asked for an APC pickup (and during that time, LOADS of APC's had arrived, but ignored me).. So..
I WALKED BACK
I killed more enemies, their scouts and so on. The light didn't even stick around as my escort...
I have NEVER been inflicted with so much mupptery in my whole life.
I had to get this off my chest. </rant>
