Ugh.

Load into a battle, instant crash. Relaunch the game, second crash. Relaunch the game a third time, I've been killed by a CV.

0 xp because I was unable to hit even one button.

Only bright side is it wasn't my double today. I had that happen to me once in OBT.

If this truly is the worst in life for you, you have my envy.

You live a charmed life then, if this is the worst.

So I suppose you have a better pithy thread title then?

It would be worse is a low-health DD smashed into your AFK ship and turned you pink for 5 games.

To lose your objectives. See allied DDs driven before you. And to hear the lamentations of your BBs.

Okay that made me laugh, thanks.
 

As to the OP, there's always worse.

Yeah, I haven't seen anything particularly bad yet, except perhaps the job thing.  Unfortunately low-level jobs are that way a lot.  You're just a number.

There are good and bad things about being an anonymous cog in the machine.  I'm an important cog in the machine, and I get paid for it, but, that also means I may get called even when I'm not nominally on-call if something big breaks.  There's a price for everything.

I got stung by a bark scorpion today, on my birthday of all days. If you've never been stung by one that gives you a full load of venom, it's like being simultaneously electrocuted and burned from your head to your toes nonstop for 24-72 hours. I got more severe symptoms including respiratory, vision and motor funtion problems although ttose finally subsided. And feeling won't come back to my leg for a few weeks. Summerlin, NV, scorpion capital of the United States. I could walk outside with a black light (can't really walk right now) and spot easily half a dozen. 

I'd take a couple crashes and a zero xp game if you ask me.

I've only been stung by one once and that was once too many times. Take a large needle, heat it red hot, hook it to an electrical outlet, quickly dip it in battery acid, and then jab yourself in a nerve with it. That's about what it feels like.

You are capping out after crushing a flank in your Alsace. Enemy dd starts capping just before you and your friendly algerie enter, so you have a time crunch. You're on 200k damage and excited for your first win of the day. Algerie then purposely tks you and says he wants to kill the DD. Dd caps out and we lose.

I always thought the worst in life was being crushed by your enemies, being seen driven before them, and hearing the lamentations of your women.

I was starting to think everybody was clueless

 

OP, nowhere near as bad as the Wheel of Pain or the Tree of Woe.

I was going to say something involving existential despair and fire ants, not necessarily in that order.  But then...

Past arguments aside, my sincere condolences on that one.  I am fortunate never to have had the experience - you have my "poison ivy on the eyelids" beat by some distance.  Best on a speedy recovery.

I dunno about that last part. Especially when married, hearing the lamentations of your women is a pretty standard thing, no?
