"You still don't get it, do you? The entire reason you sim troopers were allowed to live this long? It's because you're all losers. Control was confident that you'd do more damage to these people than they could ever do to themselves... Locus and I figure we let you rack up the casualty count, then kill you after a few weeks. But then, you did something special. You gave these people hope. And with that, came a new level of motivation. To fight harder, to die faster. All with the belief that their sacrifice might actually mean something. But you know what, it all means nothing! At the end of the day, if I'm stronger than you, and if I'm faster than you, then I can kill you. And that's better than anything money can buy."
— Felix to Lavernius Tucker, Red vs. Blue, "Fed vs. New"
