Sounds to me like they launched everything first. Which brought them into first place but your defences worked to soften the blow as they did not do a very tactical attack (basicaly they launched everything and hoped for the best).

here's a little trick I learned some poeple hesitate to join empty games so add 2 AI to your game. This will show up as 3 of 6 poeple ingame on the server list so people will join quicker. And as they join remove the AI players.

ONly bombers on the ground (or ones in the air that are carring nukes) Subs with nukes and siloes with nukes are counted towards the nuke count.

I had a simular problem before. Heres what I do now. Make it so team switching is on. And if you run into this problem again switch teams until you find the one that still has nukes. and fire them off.

As for the game itself it's a great game if you can get past the horrid bugs, and that is an understatment. The copy protection (Starforce is even worse) however there are...
