Anyway, it comes down to 20 seconds 2-2 with them having the ball. I see my oppurtunity, and set up for it. The carrier steps out into the open, and I hit him with grapple. Drop him right into the fire trap with 4 seconds left. This is surely GG.

BUT WAIT!

What's this!?

A random sentinel appears! FORCE LEAP INTO THE FLAMES FOR A KILL!

He hits the carrier, and runs out of the flames.

Possession change!

To my horror, my 22k hp tank does not have the ball... the 300 hp sentinel does, with an enemy shadow right there. One smack in the face with a light saber later, and its good night for the sentinel. Literally robbing me of a victory that myself and another sage set up like the first reply set me up.

/facepalm

What about the rest of you? When have you had to just stare into the void wondering just HOW... or even better WHY
First off you are a vanguard tank, which means you can not post in the pvp section of the forum.

Just had one a moment ago.

Lowbie Civil War.

We manage to grab west and mid, but mid starts getting hit hard. Over and over we're stopping a cap, dying, respawning, only to stop a cap just in time again.

I pull up my mini-map and we've got 3 sitting on west. So after calling "Mid, mid, hey, one of you 3 go mid" I finally take a moment to look over and see if maybe their just busy.

All -three- of them are staring into space, while their being capped by a sin.

-.- we won, when I went and ninja' capped the enemy back.

Pulling the enemy Ballcarrier into the fire pits is a good tactic. I tend to use it on my Sin alt, I wait at the fire pit closest to their goal line then BAM, pull the Ballcarrier over to me, stun him, get the ball and get us another point.

Just today I did that several times and managed to bag us the points that won us the match (fairdue the second time another teammate got the ball when the Ballcarrier died and he scored, but if it wasn't for me he wouldn't of got it, so. Infact I think he picked up on what I was doing as I can remember seeing the enemy ballcarrier being pulled into the firepit by someone else )

I hate it when that happens on my Sniper, I'm like "Why the hell did you pass it to me?! I'm a Sniper, not a Marauder!" I'm really just afraid all the enemies will converge on me so I find the nearest friendly and pass it to them.

On another note, this 'Oh for the love of...' moment was more to do with the enemies. Was on my Sin alt yesterday and had the ball. Didn't want to cross the firepit leading to the enemies goalline as there was multiple enemies there and they'd of stunned me, so I waited for my Force Speed to be ready so I could just jump over the fire pit. About 2 seconds left on the cooldown and I get pulled by a Trooper who (I think) was trying to pull me into the fire pit as it was about to go off. However when he pulled me the fire hadn't gone of yet, and I guess he'd forgotten to stun me, as I immediately activated my Force Speed and ran across the goalline

Oh how I'd of loved to see the enemies chat after that happened.

Sometimes the total lack of situational awareness in WZs amazes me.

One time in ACW we had got both Grass and Mid capped (they had Snow) but they were throwing everything they had at mid and with some real heavy hitters (Smash Spec Marauders) it was only a matter of time before they overpowered us. So I took a little trip to Snow, oh should mention I was on my Shadow and was stealthed. I defender at Snow standing on top of the turret control. Obviously he can't see me so I creep behind the control and de-cloak expecting him to panic and jump down so I can stun him with force stun, make him waste his CC breaker and then use Force Cloak to re-stealth and hit him with Mind Maze. Well he didn't move. So for the hell of it I started the cap, a big pillar of light appear right behind his butt and still he did nothing, 6 seconds into the cap I was wondering if he'd gone afk. The the turret changed color and all at once he reacted, I'd love to know exactly how rude the language he used was when he realized that the turret had been capped right under his nose, Oh and we won that WZ with all 3 turrets

Another time in Voidstar (the 2nd room) I had just crossed the right bridge, cloaked (on my Shadow again), and snuck over tot he left door. A lone Vanguard was protecting it, but he was some way from the door, so I slipped in behind him and started the plant, rotating the camera to see when he spotted me. He turned round and I was expecting him to open fire, but he just turned back and kept watch on the left bridge as though I wasn't there, to make it even funnier a Guardian ran up to him and slapped Guard on him then ran away, all while I was planting the bomb. Only when the computer announced that a bomb had been planted did wither the guardian or the Vanguard try to engage me, but far too late.

if was running the ball and i`d be under heavy fire with nobody else to pass to, ofc i`ll pass to the sniper, all u have to do is pass it back to the next guy that shows up full health you don`t even have to move, never just give the ball to ur enemies, if no1 is around and ur in certain death reset the ball, another thing I like to do in premades if we cannot bust pass mid is LURE enemies in our pit then just reset the ball, my team picks it up at mid and has less enemies to deal with=)) on their way to the scoreline
