There's been a few Speed crews as of late that have driven me to anger. So far, I've noticed a common connection between them. For your viewing pleasure, I will post them here.

I rarely ever DMS anymore, but now it's usually just with friends and maybe a random or two. I've noticed these problems a lot when I used to join random "speed" crews even late last year around Nov./Dec.
What bothers me the most from that list is when those people try to argue for their unnecessary rings. D8 /strangle mode activated

I KNOW.

The only real reason I still even DMS anymore is to finish my damn Blood Scarf. Thankfully, I'm on the last 1k of Shadow Orbs. Might as well just run my own crews for the last stretch.

Well good luck with your scarf, then! ;o I just DMS occasionally when I feel like having a change in scenery or when Ryan's online.

Leading speed crews is pretty much a joke, as long as whoever you invite doesn't do anything from the list. 8D DMS is way more fun with friends anyway. <3 To me, with smeb it doesn't matter too much since there isn't that much room to talk anyway. With DMS, though, it's pretty chill enough to speak with your friends.

*Spits black coffee everywhere.*

..aha, haha, hahaha, BAHAHAHAHAHA!

YES.

After a year of not playing, I pick the wrong time to come back.
You know what. I was right. ******** this s**t. Speed can go to hell.

>Oh you must think your really slick bringing BANDAGE and MEAT.
Last time I checked that means you are a selfish douchebag.
I'd like to see this, "But I'm healing the crew too!" part.
Do elaborate further please, I have my animation on and I'm waiting
to see this so called mass bandy healing that does more for the crew.

>Oh Captain bitches about healing and is going to kick those not healing.
Crew then takes turn making sure to only heal and satisfy cptn. while others die.
BECUASE IF I HEAL THE CAPTAIN THEY'LL THINK s**t IS JUST FINE AND DANDY.
Yes, because the Captain is the only think that needs to to be kept alive.
This is not a 1700's war or battle between Romans. What kind of stupid military
tactic that would be if you were in charge. Good luck soloing after crew is dazed.
GOD SAVE THE QUEEN, LET THE KINGDOM BURN!!! She'll have a lot to rule then!

>Yes, you in the corner, cl 11.4, soloing on a non Adren'd Wolves. OH YES.
SPAM THAT SC. YOUR DOING SO GOOD MANG. *Claps* Spam R1 that b***h.
Better yet, how about you solo the Vamps instead, I have all day to waste.

>Oh you're so tough, you dropped meat nice, really hardcore, lets do this mang.
*Meatless whore dies 5x the whole run, 2x in a row in one room.*
Oh do tell me how skilled of a ninja you are, go on, run out and agrro the whole damn
cave like a slut that doesn't know better.

>"I love NF, he's like my baby." *Crew agrees* The time for NF comes, dumbass Adrener
R1's it, then it spazzes at 4k health. I R4 the bloody ******** out of the thing while others run
around like chicken with heads off cursing at that they don't like him anymore. OH CHANGE
YOUR MIND? STFU, HEAL, AND FACE THE b***h WITH BALLS.

-Even in BL dear god.When I see Kam, I run on her, I G SO ******** HARD ON THAT b***h I SWEAR SHE MUST ***.
R4R4R4R4R4R4R4R4R4, everyone sui's and runs to the wall and waits to unlock and rebuff.
I rev IN FRONT OF KAM go across and continue to rape her with attacks.
I have no fear in my bones. ******** the buffs, tanks has buffs DPS don't need that s**t, just go.

>I remember when speeding for tuna runs and back in the day. I would not cap cl. Not bring heals.
I never used heals after 4 years of zOmging unless I was tanking. Other wise never.
I'm Wish intolerant and I don't need a Bandage for my boo-boos. I however LOVE Diagnose.
Damn that ring in smob or anywhere. Crew not healing? Okay no problem.
*Runs over to huddle or Solo'r R4's Diag and wipes crew.* There you go,that will teach you.

>Hey some asses like to complain about not healing, here's one thing, the crew needs you.
They don't want to do much but they don't want you to go either.
So okay, I'll blow you bitches real good then. *R4 Wish and gets raped while crew then desperately tries to heal me."
Sorry I don't work for free, if I gotta give then I better get.
I try my best to steal aggro and be the center of attention.
But it never really works, seems I don't deserve to be killed.
What twisted turn of faith has become me.

-Lets not even comment on my GR habits. R4 BD first and Solo the s**t.
Oh wait this isn't Call of Duty where I can go overkill run and gun and dominate like a boss.
Nvm.

>Everyone takes Wish, and doesn't heal

I always have a mix. Usually 3 bandage 3 Wish.
>People still take Meat, and cling to it like a baby's bottle

I only let nubbies take meat. So.. C.L10.4 and under.
>People try to argue that they won't drop Bandage/Meat

I don't force people to drop anything. Usually ends with a RQ.. Or my foot up someones a**.
>People MAP THE ******** YELLOW MAZE

Mental maps FTW. If you can't remember where you've been GTFO my crew.
>People try to take 1-2 attacks and think that that's okay for a Speed Crew

Lol. I require at least 3.. The more the merrier.
>People take 3 attacks but don't use rage at all

Rage dat HWB pls.
>People don't heal when a NF is killing their crewmates

Then don't heal them back.
>People can't seem to r4 Adren to save their lives

OTL I don't carry adren..so I don't know if it gets R4'd or not. lol
>People are split-mobbing instead of killing things together and burning rage

YOLO SOLO. emotion_donotwant
>People are mixing up Speed and Reg, by dropping the Tank, but being just as goddamn slow

Har har har.
>Modern Day Speed Crews are little more than Split Mobbing Crews, without Knife

talk2hand Not my crews.
>People are absolutely ******** retarded, and none of the actually good players even play

AHEM.. emotion_donotwant I STILL PLAY. You're just never around to crew with me.. And when you do, you hijack my crews and don't assign me a BUBU. OTL @ UR LOGIC.
>People have no sense of tactics, or even a brain

123,44444444444444444444444! 5. 123, 44444444444444444444444444444444444444! 5 (mantis[1] slash[2] hwb[3] hack[4], bandage[5])
>People get butthurt when not everyone takes Wish, and yet the ones who do still don't heal enough

That's why I let people take bandage. When I speed, I rarely trust my crew (unless I know them well enough) to heal myself, or my crew.. So by bringing bandage, I can heal myself, and crew when they need it. I do sometimes take wish and bandage. Depends on how I feel and how nubly the crew is.
>People imply that 6 Wishers will be enough

Keyword.. Wish.

4chan style, eh? Oh, right, this is /z/, how could I forget?

Seriously though, this is why I don't like speeding with randoms. Whenever NF begins killing teammates they run and try to kite him instead of healing and killing. People null and insist that they don't "waste revives" in YM (why the ******** are you doing YM then?) and make the crew wait for them to walk back.

I used to make people bring wish but I don't bother anymore because not everyone can use it well and I've found as long as like 3 or 4 people bring heals we're fine, even if someone takes Bandy. And some people take Meat instead of a passive, why would you do that? neutral

and that bullshit that is "I won't drop Bandy/Meat!". okay, have fun getting attuned (oh right, I forgot, there are those "last count" tunas that hand out attunement like candy so you don't have to work for it). If you don't "trust" your crew to heal you then why are you even crewing with them if you don't trust them? And besides Meat won't save you. It'll only prolong your inevitable fate of dazing if your crew doesn't heal. Passives are better because they affect all your stats.

I used to take 3 attacks + Meat in speed but now I take 4. It goes way faster.
Maybe I should play DMS again and see these crews myself.
Oh wait I'm only CL5. emotion_awesome

But Mage we would've never met if you didn't crew with randoms. User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show.

Tho pst you left off of people who bring only ranged attacks.

Or like two attacks and solar.

Or the ppl who yell at you for not bringing meat (tho I guess that's under clinging to it like a baby bottle).
