These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Crowning Moment of Awesome: NVIDIA refused to release a patch to fix the unplayability of Skies on their newer drivers/cards, claiming that it was 'impossible'. The community went to a modder going by the handle 'Timeslip', who came back with a perfectly-working patch/fix in less than twenty-four hours. (The nature of the problem required an ad-hoc solution that likely wasn't possible, or was at the very least difficult to implement, by tinkering with drivers).
Demonic Spiders: Downplayed with the Hoplite gyrocopters. Though their appearance doesn't necessarily mean an automatic defeat and loss of hope, they are the most maneuverable aircraft in the game with good weaponry and armor to boot with only their slow speed preventing them from becoming Game Breaker enemies.
Magnificent Bastard: Johnathan "Genghis" Khan is this in spades. Nathan Zachary has his moments too.
