ROFLMAO! Love it
Brian and I decided to play a couple rounds of Wake Island, and that's our full round. Yeah I got hatemail. And an epic story of weirdness to boot:Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I started off in Brian's AH as gunner, and we proceeded to kill some things and fly over C. I saw a Flanker, so you know what I just had to do. Hopped out, held down B and landed right in the cockpit. I would find out later that was a mistake. READ ON!
A few dozen kills and no deaths later, there are now 3 jets and 2 choppers in the air. And lots of pissed off Russians. Stinger after stinger until the inevitable - GASP - disabled. I bailed out over the end of the runway, figuring I'd just grab another jet. HOWEVER
I couldn't move my character. All I could do is look left and look right. No guns or RPG showed up. All I could do is walk like a total moron. Basically, I had the same motions available as the gunner in the AH has, and I could also move forward, left, right, and backward, though I couldn't turn my whole body - just my head. After a while, I realized there's no way to properly wait for the jet, so I figured I'd try swimming to see if I could turn in the water. IT WORKED!
So I swam around, angled myself right behind the runway, and as soon as I reached the shore again, I'm once again looking at a 45 degree angle to the runway. But that didn't stop me! I sidestepped my way to the jet and hopped in. Wish I had that on video. Must've been hilarious to

The best part of that match is that we were losing it for at least half the game. Brian was by himself in the chopper (seriously no one wanted to gun for him!). I had their Flanker and whored out Guided Missile for all its spotting and fire 'n'forget goodness. Even when we got two random squadmates, Brian was still alone! They chose to spawn in the F-35s instead. Last 20 tickets we were down by 5 or 6, but capped 4/5 flags. Ticket bleed aaaaannnnnddddd VICTORY!Edited by Lord_Zath - 1/21/13 at 12:59am
