That moment when you quickly look at the forum between matches, to see if there's any posts about the new disappearing-chat problems, and return to the game just as the next match starts...
Your captain has suddenly left, and been replaced by someone you don't know, who isn't saying anything... And instead of a normal junker, you're now on a 5-mortar manta ray! But somehow this loadout works pretty well, and the match ends in an easy victory. :o

That moment when you go "Hah, I'm going to change my name to Cpt. Fork and say Hi to Sgt. Spoon.

That moment when I can't change it back.



So, now I'm [Duck] CA Keon. Oh boy.

That moment when you are flying a three-man Junker with a full mortar-loadout and have a remarkably awesome combat with the enemy. The friendly galleon decides to surrender and you don't notice it until the enemy gets a 4-4 situation. Match ends after some hidey-holing and a serious last fight, and the captain says: "Well, that was a good match... WAIT did we WIN?"
One of the more memorable matches. :D

When you come back from a 4-0 deficit in 3v3 after 1 ally disconnects. Your surviving ally keeps meat grinding till they give up and leave. Your Pyra is riddled with more holes than you can count and has literally 1% hull left as you try to use the mostly AI ships as bait. Competent people join midmatch, take up the lost ships. Then you go on and survive till the end on that 1%. Getting the majority of the kills, dodging multiple rams after engines being disabled twice. Then in the end the score reads 7-4.

That moment when you expect Charon to scare away all the new players on the other ship...

...and after the match that whole crew can't stop talking about how amazing Charon is.

Damn, that guy knows how to shoot.

That moment when you and your crew learn how to use mines offensively and spend the next half dozen matches playing pinball with your enemies' ships.

Shhhh....
Don't tell nobody...

In all seriousness, once you get the crazy arcs and arming distances down, mines become a ridiculously satisfying offensive weapon. 

Hawchafish turning his gun to 'ya? Knock his gunner off mark!

Sniper Mobula annoying you? Surround him with mines, and detonate then all!

WARNING: offensive mining requires a good pilot, a good miner, and two good engineers.
Things either go really well, or really poorly.

And LOTS of good humor! You gotta laugh when you run into your own mines...... "accidentally"
