I swear to GOD I hate this game.
Fucking Kroot. Fucking Squat AI. Fucking guns.
So yeah. Being hardcore on a desert planet, I got lucky and struck a deep underground water source (had layers of rock and gem all over it, it suddenly became easymode). Eventually, after an uneventful 200 years or so after I had created a few turrets and a cannon entrance a huge pack of Kroot showed up. Just in case you don't understand what huge means, I'm talking about fifty Kroot. Most were taken down by the turrets but a few made it into the cannon tunnel. I was assuming they were going after the rotting corpses of the random critters I had fried with my cannon, of course, so I start charging up my cannon. At around 50% they finish eating what's left of the various desert animals WHEN.
A theta moves from one of the Kroot right onto my trapdoor entrance.
Where the fuck did Kroot get a fucking grenade?
I panic and I send all my guards to the gates preparing for anything else the Kroot decide to pull out of their ass, but luckily they start eating the grenade victims. Eventually, however, after my Squats finally decide to shoot, the Kroot charge in.
First thing that happens is all but two Kroot get mowed down by las fire. Both survivors leap towards the closes Squat and the lead Kroot grabs him and they both leap out trying to escape with their dinner. On their way out however, one of the Kroot dies, leaving the snatcher alive and running as fast as he can to get the fuck out. Squats follow. I just hope they don't accidentally shoot the kid(squat?)napped soldier.
And then. Red. Everywhere.
I fucking forgot about the cannon.
So, there goes all of my army.
Not a huge deal, I guess, at least the game didn't decide to dick me over and send more Kroots at that point... but still.
