Worst way you ever lost

Postby aldaris » Wed Oct 01, 2008 3:32 pm

As the title says, what is the most infuriating way you ever lost a game?
For me, at this point, it was when the futerewinnians landed at my main spawnpoint and took over my entire territory.

I don't really get angry when I lose, but a game last night where I had a dark forest and plague my main spawn point was a little irritating.

When Chris Delay crashing/rage quitting (I'm sure it was the former :wink: ) while I was in the lead by a statue with 4 minutes on the timer.

Both times in a coop game where I was the only one on my side in DOM on The Holy Tree, with only one spawn:

First time, the host didn't seem to think I liked the idea of running around the map, seeing how long I could delay them, take a new point, and try holding them off from there, so they said "gg" and quit. Some people just can't stand playing a sadistic endgame.

Second time, Futurewinians came and I couldn't be arsed to heed their "OMG STOP THEM OR THEY'LL DOOM US ALL!". And so "gg", quit. One word for that: Pansy.

Capture the Statue - I was in last place with 2 statues, the leader had 4. I then proceeded to dominate the map entirely, and as the round end counter ticked down, I had a good 3 or 4 statues en-route to my base... somewhere I have a lovely screenshot of 3 of them sat RIGHT OUTSIDE THE CAPTURE ZONE as the timer hit zero... 10 more seconds and it would've been a glorious victory :(

The crates are balanced, but you'll still get games like this. In one game I got:
Futurewinians
Deploy Ant Nest
Evilwinians
Dark Forest
Viral Outbreak

and in one Assault the attacker got Nukes, Napalm, Meteors, Subversion, and a Dark Forest. And then I opened an auto ant nest.

The most incredible thing about that game was that I still won. Oh, and ants ignore walls.

Defending DGS against zanzer7... managed to hold him off right to the end. 20 seconds on the clock, I still had the last turret firing... he uses Rage on a large group of darwinians and rushes me. Lost with 3 seconds on the clock. :(

I was on a Demo Version at the time. I joined a multiplayer game and the guys before me teamed up against me. I couldn't get any rocket pannels I had to make defs.

First I was playing against a real-life friend. I rush spawn points as fast as possible, and then send them straight into enemy territory to disrupt their defenses.

On the secondary isle where no spawn points are occupied, I began to rush my friend's recently covered spawn, while their struggling to open crates. The next thing I knew, about THREE FUCKING INFECTION CRATES broke open in my main spawn island, so I had to redirect all my attention to my main island where I started off. Hax. This was from cratemania too.

Most frustrating game for me was one where I get knocked out of the game, and THEN the only retributions I get were Magical Forests. Nothing to set them on fire with. No bugs. Just pretty glowing things to hurl at my enemies! I think I got about four of them in a row and then thankfully the game ended.

A RR game where all the solar panels were overrun with one or more of the following:

-Ant nests
-Evilwinians
-Dark Forests (ones that had grown nearly enough to cover the whole island)

Had to quit because nobody could capture the panels.

Assault. The Baleful Eye. Apparently that map is terribly unbalanced in the attacker's favor. What's more, that was the first time the attacker had played on that map...

Err, umm, no. You just need to stop/slow down the wall busters and keep your gun stations manned. It's actually a quite well balanced map. Sure you mean Baleful Eye and not Dog Green Sector?
