what was the funniest mistake when you played Defcon?

Postby ChileanSuperpower » Tue Sep 25, 2007 1:50 am

In the same day that i downloaded the demo, i started to practice and all. Everything was going OK afher the tutorial thingy. Without watching what i was doing while when i started to increase the volume with one hand and the other i was putting the units and all, but when the first nuke launch alert sound i almost hited the roof and instead i quickly decreased the volumen to normal. :lol: that was the funniest thing that happened to me. Even my old sister sayd sarcastly " When i wanna to blow up my ear drums, i will tell you.Thanks for that!"

thats happened to me dozens of times, with iTunes, i thot i pressed play, so i cranked the volume up (i have monster speakers) and when i found out that i didnt press play, i pressed it, and the freaken bass left me in a freakin hear attach (not really). so yea, i know dozens of other people who can relate to your story.

Mine would be either forgetting to place units, or sending a vital naval group on a round about trip and forgetting about them. Happened more times then I would like to admit.

The funniest mistake I made was right after I figured out you could target an allies military stuff with nukes and right before I figured out that killing their cities gives you collateral penalties.

Or how about sending bombers from one base to another and NOT disarming them. You can lose your bases all to easy that way.

I did a full out launch with all silos subs and bombers in a 1v1, by accident I hadn't selected targets for the subs when they were in launch mode, I aimed the silos and bombers just outside the radius of the city and installations ( I had the map zoomed in and wasnt so easily promted with the target stick highlight thing )

All my subs died, all my bombers returned without making a kill and all silos were empty and I was lost the game something like -2 - 4

bah.

Yeah, I forgot to place subs once (in a ladder game against MikeTheWookiee :shock: ), that's about as extreme as it gets.

another mistake that i did was once a time that i played against a spanish who i understimated, i started to annoy him with a massive bomber attack (everything was going ok, i won 30 points quickly) bombing Europe leaving berlin and barcelona close to the 0 survivors, but when he attacked La Paz in southamerica who knows how, i get distracted to defend southamerica and 5 of my bombers in europe was shoot down
