Had to show this one...

Earlier today on Hammers server we were having a little lag. SU, Synack, King John 1st, Bonzo Dog and a couple others that I can't think of right now. You could tell Hammer may have been using the server at the time to print or something, no biggy, anyhoo...

Here is a capture I took of SU depositing an airstrike on me. I could not move because of the lag and the bombs stopped above my tank one at a time until the lag stopped. So as I sat there looking at this, I managed to hit f12 and get this shot.

Try this link, yahoo has that thing about linking images directly, so I made a page for it.

also cannot see the pic. the url doesn't work.

had a great time, except for the laaaaaaaaaaaaaag. wish we knew what the story there was.

I love the smell of toasted Kevlar

of course, there was plenty of skewered synack around too.

Good thing I don't get paid for performance. I just love the game!

So your screen frooze like that then you made the capture?That happens to me all the time,especially with air strikes.The screen freezes and I have the high pitch whine of the air strike nostop and all of the bombletts are hovering a inch or two above my tank.Ahh.....the wonders of dialup lag
On a side note there were a few newbies on the server at the time and Synack was doing a good job welcoming them.I've been seeing quite a few newbies on latley...has LDA been doing some promotional things?

SU, I have a DSL, I haven't noticed air strikes doing that before. That's what made me think to capture it.

And Manray, it seemed like an eternity.

Synack is referring to his heavy flamer I ran into. But I am blaming that on the lag. (Toasted Kevlar remark).

thats almost as bad as having a nuke do that(or worse looping with the nuke almost hitting you then popping back several times)

Thanks Synack,

Hey Rex speaking of Nukes. I added one that I got from hammer the other day, he has the whole series on his site but here is the nuke shot. Scroll to bottom.
