Re: Your very first dive....
I, like many independently minded people, ignored Snipes and pulled up, burning hard. And like many, stupid, command disobeying ámadans; I died.

Re: Your very first dive....
I vaguely knew what was about to happen from lurking about here, but Snipes screaming that line still got me to jump a good foot or two out of my chair.  Realizing that I had no chance of getting out of the way by that point, I muttered "Screw it" and afterburned right into the Sathanas' windshield.

 
Re: Your very first dive....
now, there was a thread about that somewhere. something about alpha 1 making a good hood ordiment for a sath

Re: Your very first dive....
I have reflexes like a cat...well moreso when I first played the mission when it was...what....17?  Anyways I got the heck out of the way but did that ever get my reflexes going.

I have reflexes like a cat too. Except the cat that my reflexes are like is kind of... dead.

I tried that for fun once... and survived... with 23% hull.  :p

My first "Dive! Dive! Dive! Hit your burners, pilot!" resulted in survival. Unlike most people, when I'm told to "Dive!" I turn... Left. >_>;

Re: Your very first dive....
I was one of those who pulled up. It looked better to pull up than to dive and so I died. I am not sure if this is due to the fact that I was playing SCP that the warp effect obscured the Sathanas and gave the wrong impression. Once, when I switched off SCP, I could see the Sathanas clearly and the obvious path was to dive (as Snipes said).

Re: Your very first dive....
I was absentmindedly sipping coffee when starting the mission.. as usually you have a second or to two take your bearings before action in the mission kicks in.. Well.. almost all the coffee fell to my lap... Go me....

And yeah.. i didnt make it.. got squeezed between sathanas and jump vortex... or something

Quite frankly I **** myself, dropped my cig in my lap, burnt my bollocks, swore profusely and promptly died becoming the said hood ornament. Certainly didn't do it the second time. I wouldn't mind, but I knew it was coming eventually as someone told me about it, I just wasn't expecting it at that point! :mad2:

Dove, no burners, splat.

 
Re: Your very first dive....
it's been stated before... you don't need burners. :rolleyes: Hell, snipes and the rest of the wing don't even use burners, they just fly streight down, without being nicked by the sath.
Fun while it lasted.
