Always take a victory screenshot for this reason....

Postby kiniki2004 » Mon Sep 29, 2008 12:34 am

Just enjoyed a great game of MW...

I was playing on my aging laptop... Half a gig memory, nasty VIA graphics card. So I knew it was gonna run badly...

Managed, after a hour or two to join a game. Nuevo was running a 4 player Co-Op Domination.. Once he'd got a player on his team, he launched, leaving me with the useless CPU player.

I managed to get a few spawns and build up my forces... Alex the other player was the nearest enemy... So I attacked and nearly wiped him out... Unfortunately he disconnected once he realised that he was losing... Leaving me vs Nuevo..

It took 25 minutes, but eventually I managed to gather enough forces to hammer his last two spawns... with 8 seconds till his elimination, Nuevo quit as well, terminating the connection...

So I didn't get to savor my moment of winning against all odds... However thanks to MW leaving the screen up, I got my little trophy... and felt I had to post it here... If only to let Nuevo know its just Gentlemanly conduct to hang around until game over.

I could be mistaken, but that game's totally over. I see maybe 8 MWs on the green side.

I know...

I just would have liked to have seen the 'Kiniki is the winner' screen as opposed to "Lost Connection To Server".

I make a point of hanging around until the end... the person who has won deserves it.

I don't trust posts that have commercials in them.

Most people quit so early that I'd rather praise the guy for playing it out :p

I was praised for sticking around to the end, even though I was getting my ass handed to me. (I'm not very good at domination, or any map where fighting for spawn points is critical to success)

I believe in fighting to the very last Multiwinian!

I never rage-quit. I've had to drop out once because of a bug where if you're using a laptop touchpad, and ALt-Tab out for longer than about 10 seconds, teh mouse stops responding and just pulls to the top left corner endlessly, but I never rage-quit.
Even when I get hit with Dark Forest, Nuke, and Meteor, all at once, right on my spawn point, in CTS.

I rage-quit once. But I had a good reason. I was pwning that guy on assault as an attacker (it was in the first map, so it's not impossible) and he left as I was about to win. I didn't have much chance to win even then, but he quit anyway. Him being the server I quit too. Then I saw him in a new server, this time in a different assault map. As in most assault levels, the defender kickde ass so as revenge I just quit at the last moment.
