This happened a couple weeks ago, so forgive me for forgetting the names of those involved, and the lack of SS.

I was playing on n00bstories AOW, the game was full, and I was playing as GDI on C&C_Field. After messing around in the tunnels as Gunner, I see a target of opertunity--someone in a light tank had gotten out to repair himself. I get one good headshot rocket in, sneak around the Nod Artillery in the field to steal the now empty tank, and drive it back into my base with about 30 or so health left.

I consider this a huge victory. We were behind by about 100 points and Nod held the field. Now they can make one less vehicle. After flaunting my accomplishment for a few seconds, I park the Light Tank behind GDI's WF, tell nobody to drive it, and I explain how it'll give us an advantage. Everyone agrees except for one guy (Forgot his name, let's call him "n00b #1"), who calls me "Greedy" for not letting him have the tank that I stole myself. I get !noobed, but I really don't care.

As soon as I get out of the tank, some other guy (Let's call him "n00b #2") gets in my tank and trys to drive it out into the field. I tell him to get out repeatadly, but he ignores me. For a couple of teamates manage to block him using an APC while reporting this to the mod on duty. Before the mod can kick him for GTA, n00b #2 manages to get around the APC and drive the light tank directly into the field with me in the gunner seat. n00b #2 manages to almost get close to the barn before getting ripped apart by arty fire. Not once did he even attempt to fire at any Nod unit, much less work with his teamates or wait for a repair crew to help him.

The game ends with GDI losing by a marginal amount of points--surely an amount we could've made up with the tank advantage, or even the proper use of the stolen light tank.

I believe this story deserves a 10 because both n00bs mentioned fit the description on the main page--they insist on doing things that HINDER the team rather than help it, eventually leading to our loss.
