    Anyone has any fun experiences to share with certain odd results from using skills?

    The Demo's Look! skill:
    In one game, I got Leto to kill Zeus right from the start of their spawning, and Erobos to kill an Infestor.
    Erobos even ignored the rain of bullets.. casually strolling from airlock to Dome B to punch the festor like a boss.

    To a lesser extent, the rifleman's sonic trap.
    I placed it to ward off a stalker near Erobo's stage entry.
    The cutscene's banelings were repelled by it.
    Gate still exploded though.

    Using technician's right tree allows u to have a ranged crowbar :).
    Engineer mind controlling mutas+gargolies.
    Mind control infestors for mass sheeps.
    Psi ops push allies into enemies.
    Mando grav nade vortex team.
    If u get armadeggon u can make it explode n kill the civs + banes.

    Extifer Stiffy is what Lyanden calls me.

    There was an infamous time (around January - February 2011) where we could use engineer's mind control on infestors and have them hug bosses.

    Insta win every time.

    I need to go look up that screen shot.

    Do you mean huggers Ex, not infestors? Like mind ctrling one of Demeter's huggers in surv to hug Gotb.

    Read my post DOMO, it was around January - February 2011 during NOTD beta. A time when you were not around. Anyone from my time such as Shooz, Arch, and Lyanden can tell you about it.

    Btw the bug you speak of are Demeter's Cocoons (which was late last year 2012), not huggers.

    Learn to read properly next time.

    This was the only thing I could manage to find, which was huggers being bugged with them being mc'able and being able to hug.

    Notice the old UI of NOTD.


    P.S At least I found it origination of your Princess title Osaze. LOL. I also found some funny stuff, I'll PM it to you.

    gravity grenade sucking in vikings from the FO's airstrike causing them to throw the bombs in random messed up directions. (frequently results in TKs)

    I remember that.

    I can't think of any skills that I used for practical effects, but I remember when Freeman was around and had his opening cinematic, I'd play Demo and throw down a fire wall so it looked like he was walking out of hell. Good times.

    Before dropship became unclickable and invulnerable, some people have fun osoking/kmsing dropship before ammo drop. *picture of amms and submandos with trollface*

    Using Shrink on pred skin such as Terra Tron, Hybrid, Brutalisk, and possibly Archon (since its original model size is bigger than one in notd).

    Before PF's Jump and NQ changes, PF used to traverse terrain or jump to 'island' (such as south of SY and west of Death trap/valley).
    Before PF's Booster or whatever (one that increase speed) change, PF used to be a mobile sonic trap as he go through mobs, they get pushed back. It was fun.

    As fortmo, using Look! on team mate, if he/she is rude.

    Holy crap man, overreaction much? I'm pretty new so I had no idea that time was during beta and thought you were talking about huggers too.

    Domo has a history of failing to read things properly, hence why he was banned on the forums for numerous incidents for failing to read.

    Also the reason for my tone to him.

    Using Psi-Ops to Psi-Tempest the Erobos entry zone will not only cause the civilians to die but also Erobos to walk right into the fencing and look like he is bending over ass up.
