So there’s a bug that makes your teammate spawn as an ebonstar merc right? Today, while having some connectivity issues (the game told me so) we had this bug. But with a twist.
You see, when our first mate died, he came back as an ebonstar, but had the weapons of abe. Immediately the dropship counter started to count again. After two minutes, another merc was dropped. Then again after two minutes time. I wonder how many allies we could have gotten?
Well we won very quickly somehow, despite having no trapper-dome. Worst Kraken ever.
