[STORY] Longest round ever

Postby Brinelex » Sun Jul 09, 2017 11:38 am

So, I'm a little bit new to this forum, but we're not here to talk about that. I wanted to share with you a story that happened on a round on the ARS-Epic survival server.
I want to share this because I didn't find anyone else talking about their best rounds in Barotrauma, and I think It's a shame, because I find some stories fascinating to read.
I hope I can do that and it's not out of place.

So, the round started, and I was a mechanic. 3 peoples were on the server : Me, Trexdude (captain) and Cordon (engineer). Our mission was fairly simple : "Hunt down and kill a Tiger tresher". Our submarine was medium-sized and had a shuttle. We are activating the reactor, and everything is good to go. We start to go down, everything is fine, some players start to join the round, so we wait for the respawn shuttle. While waiting, the captain asks me to go explore some nearby ruins to find some loot. So I explore the ruins, kill a guardian, and find an alien weapon that I bring back to the sub. The shuttle is here, with 2 players inside (I don't remember their names). So now, we have 5 players on the sub, everything is going well, we take drugs, we play hot potato, the submarine is going to the objective. When suddenly, one of the player that just arrived (I'll call him Traitor) launch a stun grenade on me and Cordon before stealing the shuttle on our sub (a very dangerous shuttle that has one railgun on each outer wall), shooting while going away from us. Of course, we start chasing him, and he manages to crash into a wall. We stop our engines just when we are on top of him, looking through the windows and seeing that Traitor is still alive and is desperately trying to fix his shuttle. We load a nuke shell into a railgun, hoping that it will finish him off. After hearing the explosion, I volunteer to go check if he's still alive and, if he is, finish him off with a harpoon. I go outside, get close to his shuttle, and before I can scream "Help", I receive a railgun shell in the chest. Traitor go outside to get my body inside of the shuttle, but he was apparently bleeding, because he dies moments later. Trexdude, after noticing that I don't answer to his calls, retreive my body and revive me (I was in coma). I thanks him, but Traitor respawns in another shuttle. Trexdude and Cordon stun him, and he get thrown into the command room (with handcuffs on, of course). After all of that trouble, we manage to get to the Tiger Tresher and kill it with ease. Nothing really interesting happened after that.

It took somewhere around 2 hours to finish this mission.

One time I told a guy to go to medical and test out the Alien Weapon on him and promised to revive him immediately after. Just as i revive him the reactor only separated by a few floors explodes and next we see someone outside. Assuming it is someone in danger the person with me opens the door, knowing full well water could be rising and he could be without an oxygen mask. As he opens it a raving mad seaman (this is bte) with a knife charges at my just revived friend and stabs him. Luckily I injected him with auxiliorozine instead of corrigodone so he has enough health to survive. His fortune would be replaced with misfortune soon.

I tell him to wait in the corner, the man I have locked back outside has no perception of the firepower i possess. I open the door, prepared to be the saviour of the sub, I am ready to kill the griefer. The door opens, I blast his face off but not before he stabs me a good 5 times. He is dead but I am bleeding heavily. I fully inject 1 fibrinozine and 1 auxiliorozine I picked up 30 seconds ago but I know it is too late, my health bar is dropping. I realise I will die and close the door to the med-bay to save my friend from the water. I run away but am blasted forward, my limp body falling down 1 floor into shallow water. The seaman must have had a suicide vest. I die knowing that my sacrifice was in vein and my friend in medical was blown to pieces, his remains now scattering the depths of Europa.

The camera zooms out giving telltale signs of my revival, the drugs I injected myself saved me from my own demise and barely saved from oxygen deprivation because of the water began flowing down the stairs. I get up, walk a few steps and the admin ends the round.

And that's how I just found out you can revive yourself from your own death.
