Hmmm, another one I'd have to say, is when I played Diplomacy with computers! call me stupid, but I waited for about maybe 10 minutes, before I left my alliance.

ERRRR!!!

Thats all I heared all over the place. Then,

BOOOM!!!!

All over the place. Then...

AUGH!!!

My people all over the place.

Meh, I just beat Darwinia in about 6 hours. I don't think its all that impressive, but its impressive to ME...

Anyhow: onto mistakes. I constantly send bombers without fighter scouts ahead, my bomber attacks are often complete fiascos.

I've played about 6 games against humans so far, but I've had my fair share of mishaps:

Accidentally left clicking instead of right clicking with armed bombers, resulting in random nuking? Yep.

Theorising on where the enemy would place his navy in the public chat box? Yep.

Forgetting about bombers, and letting them return to base unlaunched? Yep.

I sometimes place 5 silos in close formation and one lonely silo close to a big undefendable city. When comes the time to fire the silos, I sometime forget to fire the lone silo... DUH

Well, that lone silos is completely useless against a normal human player.

Not necessarily - if you're in a 1v1 and want to make him think your silos are somewhere else, it can have a purpose. But then again, look at my mighty losing run in 1v1's for evidence against that! :lol:
