Most annoying power-ups

Postby Greendingbat » Tue Sep 23, 2008 11:30 pm

Post your list of most annoying/helpful power-ups!

Most annoying (in order):
Infection outbreak
Futurewinians
Plauge outbreak
Nuke
Ants

For me the most helpful really depends on what the game type is
and the circs at the time

Ants or Soul Destroyers near a spawn are very irritating, as are Evil/Futurwinians near you and no-one else. Also, I tend to hoard hordes, so meteor showers are the bane of my existence... lost about 500 DGs in 5 seconds of inattention yesterday. >_<

hmm let me think, is it ants or perhaps something else...
...no its ANTS really! Wouldn't be such a problem if they were timed or you could destroy them with lasers though.
But they way they are now? serious gamebreaker...

Agreed about Ants, but what's wrong with Rage? :lol:

Also, I dislike Triffids.

One day, I'll get a better computer, and my least favourite will go back to being goddamned Plague when I have nothing to kill the infected with.

Ants, of course.

I played a game earlier today though, where I completely lost due to getting a plague AT MY SPAWN POINT, infecting the multiwinians controlling the incubator - and subsequently contaminating every single multiwinian spawning from that place.

No matter how good your rig is, ants are still worse than a boot to the head.

A soul destroyer at your trunk port is far worse than ants. Ants are a minor annoyance only.

Also high on the list: retribution in the hands of the wrong people (that is, anyone who fails to see I'm clearly not the one to be targeted :P)

Soul Destroyer and Ants definitely. I'd say Ants are more annoying just because they're guaranteed whereas the Soul Destroyer is luck of the draw and relatively rare. The Ants don't even do that much damage but they completely destroy any semblance of control you have over your Multiwinians who also stubbornly refuse to target the nest. Anything that brings misery to a spawn point basically. Dark Forest is definitely on that list too but at least it's easier to clear up and not quite as lethal.
