Minor things you hate:

Not having customization crosshairs for each weapon
The mortar fires imaginary shells

-Buff engineers that don't buff
-Nobody on the fore guns when I say "MAN THE FORE GUNS"
-Nobody shooting the side guns on the Goldfish when I call for it well in advance
-Nobody fixing engines when we need to burn kero
-Shooting the mines on my Spire of Mobula when we are moving forward
-Not putting out fires when I call for it...."balloon is on fire... yep still on fire... Ok balloon is down help me rebuild it please."

Yep... I like the buff engineers that insist on bringing buff kit instead of standard, for whatever reason and then only buff 1 gun and a turning engine, then forget about it for the rest of the match

That is the signal you give when you ram. Muse! we need a "Brace for impact" signal command.

If I see you on my crew, I'll make a point of bringing a Squid and repeatedly asking you to man the Port gun every time a target gets out of arc.

I won't be using the presets to do it either.

You're welcome.

As for my pet peeves though, I've found one as a gunner, and that's a particular behaviour I've seen from a Pyramidion Captain. "Man the fore guns" - cool, I'm already there. That's my primary position on the ship. We also have an Engineer up here. "Guys, someone to the front guns please?" Uhhhh... YEAH. WE'RE STILL HERE. No word until after ramming "Man the side guns, I'll try to keep them in arc for you". Gunner Engi stays to keep patching up the balloon, while the main deck Engi jumps on a Flamer that the Captain is keeping JUST out of range. When I get to the second gun and am about to fire, the Captain yells "WHY IS NOBODY ON THE FRONT GUNS?" and pulls our shots off target so he can line up the unmanned front of the ship with our target. Maybe we're not there BECAUSE YOU TOLD US TO BE SOMEWHERE ELSE.

Really though, that example highlights a less specific issue - Captains who plan ahead, but don't tell their crew what the plan is until the last second, preferably when it's too late for them to actually help it succeed.

Crew members abandoning their positions with no reason (gunner on pyra going downdeck and doing nothing).

Pilots constantly using kyrosene/moonshine and forgetting that engineers can't constantly repair engines AND other stuff (not even mentioning chem-spraying....).

Engineers following me-engineer (or, going somewhere even when they see I'm there). I mean - you don't trust me? If I'm next to the baloon and waiting it means I'm repairing the freaking baloon and go f*ing repair something else, engines for instance. Gaaawd!

Pilots hitting rebuilded objects with spanner/wrench despite the fact that I'm standing right next to them with mallet.

PEOPLE REPAIRING THINGS WITH SPANNERS (especially engineers.... yup, it happens).

If you tank a pyra hull with a spanner from full health to about half then use a mallet you can survive a gat clip :) normally,



Goldfish pilots who always turn before i fire the manticore messing up the shot,

People who don't reload after firing half a clip

Inpatient captains who spam ready up and charge in before ally

People who blame their team

The spire :P

Mobula engineers who don't stay on there side

That one guy who brings the wrong stuff on purpose for achievments rather than just saying.

The Shee not killing in one clip haha

Flying a Carronade flamer squid with no one on the flamer

Being on blue spawn canyon

Sandstorms

:D Thats all i dare say :P

Not if all shots hit ... Or almost all.
If you fight a gat on a pyra you need to either kill faster, disable the gat or get out of arcs intime.
Gat can kill pyra armor in 4-5 seconds.

Yeah but you can tank half with spanner then mallet hit then you essentionaly have hull and a half normally goes red but doesn't break i was working on a way to tank with spanner and then switch to wrench to negate the clip but if the mortar fires at the same time that thing is going down into the red haha
