(For those who don't know: this is what VS announcer says upon losing a facility.) This phrase encapsulates the problem with PS2 as a team game. If glory for the empire mattered, if facility capture really mattered, then this is what Papa Vanu would say to you: "You did not (only) fail yourself, you failed Vanu". But as it stands, when you lose a facility you have not actually failed your empire because your empire doesn't care about facilities and neither do you. You've only failed yourself because now you have to redeploy and find another fight to grind.
