The only really bad STF experience I had was KASN, I asked if anyone wanted to goalie, got no response but saw a Caitan carrier start heading right. I headed left and covered the probes there while taking out nanites. I kept checking back behind me, and noticed that the kitty carrier was *further* than the gate from me. Uh oh.... I pop Evasive and skedaddle to the transwarp gateway, but one of the probes managed to make it through. Immediately, we see on the team chat

YOU GUYS SUCK, YOU LOST OPTIONAL

from the kitty-carrier. Of course I'm all

Uh, no, YOU lost optional, the probes came from your side.
We saw you heading right and assumed you had it.

to which he responds

I ALWAYS GO RIGHT, PROBES WERE SOMEONE ELSES JOB

and then he proceeded to *quit*. We still finished fine. It boggles me that people would leave a match when the optional is lost, it's only 1/5th of the award, and random, and you still might get nothing. Totally weird.

Durp durp durp. Stunning really. Next time I have a conversation like that I want to record it for posterity.
