After Starscream takes the flag, Thundercracker moves to follow the commander. Maybe now that the flag is out of his possession, Skystrike will stop taking potshots at him...
No such luck. He screams as pain explodes through his sensor network, and diagnostic warnings flash before his optics. He loses control and falls, plowing into another building before he can regain control. Instead of punching through the building and out the other side, this time he's angled in such a way that he smashes through several floors and impacts against the foundation with a sickening crunch.
Searing agony fills his CPU, and his vision fills with system shutdown messages... then static.
Were this a video game, there'd also be a big GAME OVER there...
Which was more likely to be trouble, Skystrike with everyone piling on her, or Starscream running off with the flag, supposedly to Scourge? Hmm... difficult question. Almost as difficult as guessing what would happen if Swindle got the chance to steal Galvatron's fusion cannon.
Dead End turned around and headed back to Scourge's zone, following the carefully mapped route. Privately to Scourge, he sent: // Starscream is headed your way with the flag. Supposedly. //

Skystrike watched Thundercracker's violent exit with an air of dark satisfaction. It was only briefly spoiled by Needlenose's announcement but she didn't otherwise seem too bothered by the fact that she'd lost. There were many things to be learned this day, some new lessons and others reminders of older knowledge.
Transforming into robot mode, the seeker idly ponders going after the retreating members of the other team but decides against it. The virtual world disappears a moment later anyways. It was rather disconcerting to have all the injuries suddenly vanish and all the buildings settle into a flat floor. She hadn't been in anything as fancy as this in... a very long time.
Frowning slightly, the seeker idly worries at the connective joint of an arm cannon. There's a soft click of the joint locking back into place and a slight wince. Well that'd certainly been an interesting experience.
Making absolutely no head-way after Starscream, Sky-Byte stops abruptly in his path as Needlenose's announcement goes out. It's probably a good thing to do as he'd probably plow into a wall as the simulation disappears. Slightly disgruntled by the swift change, Sky-Byte peers around at all the other remaining players.
Perhaps it is time to make a quick exit. Sky-Byte would prefer nothing to spoil his sense of victory.
