All-Flare-Mobula is a prime example of asymmetric warfare: If your PC crashes, we win.

Also once upon a time there has been a 3v3 all flare pyramidion game, on Dunes. Offered by 404 with my commentary, it lasted about an hour. Even today, if I gently whisper to my computer the word "flare", it shutters and try to switch off.

Ah, as one person said when we took a 4 gunner (with 2 crew members drunk and one, myself, pretty much delerious from lack of sleep) 5 flare mobula and managed to get a kill, "so you used the old Lag them out strategy?" It backfired of course, my FPS dropped like a wingless bird.

I once spectated in a 4v4 match of all flare mobulas on Dunes (one of the grand finale matches before matchmaker). I have screenshots... SPRING GREEN EVERYWHERE.

Is that a threat?!

Maybe. However, as a testament to how amazing flares are, not to mention how delightfully CPU intensive they are, they dropped my FPS to about 15 compared to my usual 60. I'll post pictures when I get home.
