When one spends a lot of time trying to reach a goal (especially being on a "top 5"etc scoreboard in an MMO), only to be swiftly knocked off the aforesaid scoreboard.

This comes from the XV104 Riptide, which was , wen it was releases, the largest model in the warhammer 40k universe, only to be deprived of this glory less than a month later by a newer model.
