First encounter with the PlanetKiller was Buggy. I had double the points and got -294 Renow after the mission. Explains why the fight was such a joke :D

we wiped the Eldar out, lost most orc ships, the IN opp and i beeing the last players with usefull ships on the map, as the other
IN player complains:

"OMG Chaos is OP!"
his Eldar mentioned "There is no Chaos in this match"

I killed the Terminus Est by ramming it with a tiny widowmaker destroyer whose AAF I forgot to turn off.

I was like, Lol wut?!

That crew got showered in medals. Post-humously.

I've had ships warp out AND explode before, leaving wreckage while another version completes the warp out animation.

I even lost a cruiser clash with this happenening, and neither of us know who won until the text came up (we were both like, did it get out!??).

Then in the post combat screen it was marked with a white skull and counted as destroyed. Turbo sad for me!

Got this one before during a transport mission in sp.
I'll just copy my Steam forum post over 1-1, because lazy:

So there I was, fighting the good fight, serving the empire of mankind, the usual things.

Here's the setting:
Ork convoy vs. my imperial fleet in the campaign.

I'm having a good time, just protected the inquisitor's ship with my powerful battlecruiser and surely destroying a couple transports can't be much harder than obliterating a gigantic chaos fleet with 2 ships.

How wrong I was, because I forgot that this is a transport mission.
So I quickly rush my ships towards the transports, which are obviously sprinkled around the map. (I.e. what we can't really do when defending convoys, due to the all seeing AI, but w/e)

3 Transports later I have to warp out 3 of my 4 cruisers leaving only my Dominator to deal with the last transport.

Luckily the AI in this game is well developed and not just a couple triggers and scripts, so it sails the last transport ship straight through an asteroid field.
10/10, Plasma bomb and torpedoes launched, ship destroyed and defeat.

Wait what?

And that was the point when I realised that the wreckage crossed the finish line.
GG guys, keep up the astonishingly great development work that apparently went into turning someone's pet hamster into a servitor instead of... you know... refining game design and mechanics.

However I'm sure by imperial edict this was declared a feature not a bug and if required will change in the next dlc/addon, 9,99€ or 15 years of duty in the Imperial Guard, please.

My last Chaos line ship, a crippled cruiser, tries to ram the three tightly-packed pursuing Eldar cruisers in a last act of defiance. But the Eldar ships are agile, and manage to avoid a head-on collision. My ship scrapes it side against the central Eldar vessel. But when the engine sections of both ships are next to each other, they stick together. My still-boosting cruiser drags the unfortunate Eldar ship by the tail, spinning out of control while both ships take damage. Finally, my ship dies in unholy fire, setting off an explosion than slingshots the Eldar cruiser towards their escort group, obliterating two small ships and leaving the Eldar cruiser with heavy damage.

11/10 would slingshot Eldar again :lol:
