Well that was uh... interesting. A story of some poor Ronin troops...
I had something that I found utterly hilarious happen to me, and I felt the extreme urge to share my experience.
So I was playing campaign, as Ronin. I had about 3000 credits, decided "eh what the hell", and loaded up a dropship with about 8 ronin heavies, with various weapons. Decide to call it in right above the enemy cortex, realizing fully that they will probably die. So they drop in, enemy's anti air drone blows the dropship up, one shot. My guys are hurtling through the sky (at great lulz for me), one is just a head and a jetpack. Anyways, they manage to kill the cortex, and then proceed towards the second cortex. I decide, "eh", call in a second dropship with the same cargo on the second cortex's landing area. They don't have an anti air drone.
So, my dropship starts coming down, everything's going great. All of a sudden, my disembodied head-soldier (the one with just a head and a jetpack) comes hurtling from the side of the screen.
Beeline, straight towards the dropship. Slams into it with his face, blood flies everywhere.
The dropship engine on that side EXPLODES, suddenly my dropship is upside down.
It starts doing flips on the ground, while pooping out soldiers (and then rolling over and immediately crushing them). Then, the dropship explodes, spraying metallic death over the landscape.
EVERY SINGLE ONE of my soldiers was killed. Including the disembodied rocketeer :[
I sat there in silence for a solid 5 seconds, bewildered. I then proceeded to laugh so hard my roommate woke up (he's a very deep sleeper).
Long story short, I had a good lulz tonight. Thank you Cortex Command. Thank you.
