    I think she was before my time. She went crazy, right?

    She was great, and then the train went off the tracks. I used to have her meltdown in my .sig.

    It would be a little hard to describe the events leading up to it, but here's the payoff.

    Also, I'd un-nominate the Richy/Shinto thing. He didn't out himself as a cultist, he was a cultist who seered clean. It was pretty smart.

    I would, however, nominate Jeffe for giving one of the seers a bad result. :D

    Lady Eri is the only one who deserves the biggest meltdown award (among others in my opinion), everyone else pales in comparison.

    I have to agree. For those who weren't around for it, I'll try to provide a little backstory. It's been a while since it happened, so I'm not sure how accurate I'll be.

    The Communist Phalla was only her second game. In her first one, the name of which I cannot recall, she made at least a couple accusations that ended up being correct. This led to a number of people, including herself, believing that she was this naturally gifted genius Phalla player. So at the start of the Communist Phalla a lot of people just said "I'll go along with whatever Eri says".

    But this time around her accusations weren't quite as accurate. Furthermore, she'd rarely say why she was voting for someone, instead making just a short "!vote for blah" post. When pressed for her reasons, she'd claim to be privy to secret information that, for the safety of the network, only she was allowed to know. To top it all off, people within her network were dropping like flies.

    After a few days, some minor mess happened with the moderators and an ambiguous part of the rules, and she exploded and said some nasty things about them and the way they were running things. By this point, she'd succeeded in alienating almost everyone in the game, so the unanimous reaction to her complaints was "fuck you Eri". Her response was to pick up her ball and go home, FOREVER.

    Seriously, the best part was the expletive-ridden rant she later deleted in favor of the "I quit" post.

    Hey, somebody from SE++ tell them about how she took pictures of herself and posted them in a thread, each picture showing her with less clothing.

    I forget what she wanted, but whatever it was must've been important.

    She's actually pretty cute. I should have PMed her to try to get the "final picture". :winky:

    And I agree with you about the pictures, but I feel that it crosses the fine line between pretty cute and smoking hot. The way her eyes sparkled with a fierce intelligence, and that shy but oh so beckoning smile that brightens my sky, and the way...

    Meltdown, huh? Wouldn't !Drez win that award? The guy got banned for a few weeks over a game. I'd try looking for the angry rants in [chat], but if it isn't in the chat-log then it is probably impossible to find.

    Lady Eri is also a good one, but that was from before my time.

    --

    Also, I haven't been in a phalla in ages, after I found more joy in 3D games. I don't think I'll be very active in this one, cause I found a 16hrs/week job to do next to my ~40hrs/week uni.

    To be fair to Lady Eri, from her perspective it was rather inexplicable how everyone in the network kept dying.

    I have to admit though, as a bady guy her reaction was rather entertaining.

    Right or wrong is besides the point, really. Getting yourself banned over phalla scores a 10/10 on the meltdown scale.

    It appears I'm late to the party. Meltdowns and blunders you say?

    Obviously, Xevo comes to mind, mainly because of his loss of all semblance of logic after Zot and I were playing tug-of-war with him, especially towards the end. But this is a matter that must be given solid consideration.

    Drez is pretty much that way all the time. I think in that case, Phalla just happened to be the subject that set him off. If it hadn't been that, it probably would have been something else further down the line.

    He's mellowed out a bit since then, though.
