« on: March 29, 2011, 23:04 »

I always wondered how I could be killed by something and the game cannot tell what did it. Any ideas?

I think it just means you were shot by an enemy that was outside of your line of sight.

If you get killed by an exploding barrel, what does it say ?

Wow, the last sentence makes little sense lol :D

The former sergeant misses you. The imp fires! The missile hits the former
 sergeant. The imp dies. The former sergeant dies. You die!...

So, they like killed eachother, or what happened ?

Here's what I read: Imp fires, hits former sergeant, kills itself with the explosion. The explosion also kills the sergeant. The explosion also kills you. In that order.

So the game then goes, alright, you're dead. What killed you? Umm...well, it appears to be the blast of...something that doesn't exist anymore. So...yeah.

The other time I've seen this message is when something teleports onto your square and kills you.

Hmm... wasn't that counted as a stupid suicide?
