YMMV: Adeptus Evangelion

  • Broken Base: Pretty much every new version so far has lead to this, especially between v2.5 and vBorderline, as disagreements over v2.5 were the main reason for vBorderline's creation in the first place. Also happened again recently with the release of v3. Gladly, on most occasions the discussion has stayed civil.
  • Memetic Mutation: Along with the standard Evangelion memes, the game has a few of its own.

    • The Sydney-14 Campaign, one of the few known IRL games of Adeptus Evangelion to be run, has some infamy. The players went out of their way to make their pilots the biggest sociopaths humanly possible, most famously one player taking the drawback Compulsion- Remove People's Eyes. Between holding Earth hostage, turning the Geofront into the equivalent of North Korea, and attacking every Angel unprovoked (said Angels at one point were willing to surrender and leave Earth. The debates lead to an Angel committing suicide out of frustration), it's also possibly the only example of an evil campaign of AdEva. It got some reference in the [REDACTED] supplement.
  • Nightmare Fuel: There's a good reason why pilots have a record of the Insanity Points they've accumulated. Some Angels are able to attack pilots' minds or even their souls directly, over-synchronizing with an Eva slowly whittles away your ego and eventually causes you to physically dissolve, and you can feel all the damage your Evangelion takes.
