I had two bad infected elite space missions today. Both were my fault.
The first I got into a sudden ton of lag which is very rare for my Internet. I couldn't do anything. When the lag quit the first time I'd been killed. That happened right at the beginning. Then it happened a few seconds later and by the time it quit I'd been logged back to sector space. Oddly, I didn't get a leaver penalty.
The second bad was again right at the beginning. I got a VERY important phone call. My ship just drifted off into nothingness. When I came back I just logged out. There were Borg all over the place and I'd been called every noob name in the book.
