There I was....
Am I a glutton for punishment or what.
I mean, I could be halfway to St George right now on my bike.
I could be in Sturgis checking out the hot chicks.
I choose to set here playing this silly game.
Somewhere along to line today I decided I needed to replace two of my heavy cannons with regular duals.
So I needed a couple prototypes.
I cue up an ISE.
Now Cryptic, in their infinate wisdom, changed the hud. So now when I go into space I get one of two displays. The original with the fire buttons or the new one without the fire buttons.
I get into the PuG and see I have the hud without buttons.
Lucky for me I have my mouse set up to fire but I prefer the buttons on the hud.
I See that the Pug is three oddys and a Galaxy.
Now the Galaxy is the only other ship in the fleet that is comparativily as bad as an oddy.
I say 'Hi' like I usually do.
So everyone is firing away with technicolor rainbow beams. All is going relativily well.
The first set of nodes and generator die properly with a minimum number of spheres spawning.
All is going relitivily well.
But I see that the spheres and nanites are not dying.
So I type my usual 'Please take your weapons off stun.'
I get too close to the gate and get killed.
Now I have the Hud with buttons. Yippee...
So I return to the group and join the kill.
I see the Galaxy and an oddy go boom.
The Spears are finished before the other two get back.
It took an unusually long time to finish the Spheres and I didn't figure we could finish the optional on time.
We all head off to side two,
The Cube dies and I turn to knock down a node.
Three oddys are behind me shooting the nodes and a Galaxy on the other side working on a node.
Boom, the oddys killed both nodes they where working on early.
I kill mine immediatly and try to shoot the one the Gslasxy was working at.
The Galaxy's node is still at 80% so I'm firing away at it.
The three oddys are shooting the generator.
I say 'There's still a node alive.'
They just keep shooting the generator.
The node finally dies but i get killed.
I heal and respawn and head back to the Generator.
Now I have no fire buttons again.
There are sphears and nanites all over.
I start working on them and watch two oddys die.
Now my mouse locks up.
I;me leaving a slowww ugly mouse trail and have a ton of lag in the buttons.
I get killed.
75 seconds later I respawn.
Now I have buttons,
I fly back, mouse still lagging but I can click on the hud fire butons..
We finish the gate and are working on the cube.
Forever later I respawn, No hud buttons.
The oddys all get killed so I try to set 9.5 K out from the cube and keep firing.
It doesn't work and my mouse is so bad I can't do much with my heals.
I get killed.
I come back about a month later and the Cube had actually healled a little.
I have hud firnig buttons again.
I see the Galaxy and two oddys die.
Finally after about three weeks of shooting the cube dies.
Everybody says GG.
Plus, NO PROTOTYPE!
