There seems to be a dearth of posts on the board lately. Let's try to change that, shall we? In this topic, let's all discuss our most epic victories and heartbreaking losses on the battlefield. Unlike the biggest blunders and epic moments threads, this focuses just on wins and losses, not individual combat performance. Which victories are you most proud of? Which defeats are you most embarrassed/frustrated about? Explain why! I'll begin:
-6-person FFA soakfest @ my house - I was the least dry of everyone after it was over, while using an AS Secret Strike, the worst weapon on the field. Near the end everyone tried to gang up on me and I still came out on top!
-3v3 4-flag CTF @ marauder's house, Hydropocalypse day 1 - Just when it looked like we were going to lose 3 flags to 1, we came together and assaulted the enemy base, taking two of the flags back (it's now illegal to take more than one flag per person, haha) and winning the round in the last minute.
-3v3 AP-only 1HS @ Legend Park, MOAB day 1 - This was one of the hardest battles I've ever fought, going up against 300s and a Gorgon with Colossi and a modded MD 6K. The fact that it was so difficult made it quite satisfying to win, even if our only kills came off of Drenchenator who hadn't fought in a community war battle previously.
-4v4 CTF @ Westland Middle School, Soakemore 2013 night 3 - Still probably one of my favorite rounds ever. After a couple failures at getting the flag, I managed to work together with CA99's friend and make off with the flag almost unnoticed. The adrenaline rush from that run was incredible, and I was able to fend off everyone who came after me.
-5v4 1HK @ Dug Hill, Downpour 2011 day 1 - Our whole team was eliminated due to getting ambushed after letting our guard down. Not exactly a desirable outcome for my first community war battle.
-2v1 1HK @ McMillan Creek (local battlefield) - I was on the team of two, and we got shot from behind without even seeing it coming. I don't like it when that happens, haha.
-4v4 CTF @ Long Beach West, Frozen Fury 2012 day 1 - The first rivalry round we lost. Somehow my team let marauder get in to where the flag was, and from there he was able to chuck it out a hole in the back wall of the building and come back for it later. It's not like he killed anyone to get through, it's just that it seemed like my team didn't really try to stop him.
-3v3 1HK @ Sycamore Island, Soakemore 2013 day 1 - Another one where my whole team got ambushed because of not watching the rear.
-4v4 CTF @ Westland Middle School, Soakemore 2013 night 3 - I didn't like this one because I got hit when I shouldn't have, which led to us losing the round.
-3v3 Domination @ Dug Hill, Downpour 2013 day 1 - We were winning up until the point when my team let Drenchenator get through and hit me, completely collapsing our line of defense. Just like the LBW CTF, he didn't hit anyone, my team just somehow let him in.
-5v4 Outpost @ Northgate, Frozen Fury 2013 day 1 - My team had horrible tactics in this battle, which resulted in a rather embarrassing loss. Focusing on defending one measly point with our better players while leaving the rest of the team way out of reach to defend like three points at once is not a good idea. I guess it was our first time playing outpost, but still.
As you can guess, I am more easily frustrated at defeats than I am satisfied at victories. That's 'cause winning is supposed to be routine, haha. Also, it's interesting how all the rounds on my defeats list are 1HK and objective games; no 1HS. I would guess that's because 1HS generally gives you more opportunity to make up for your mistakes.
I don't think there's another thread like this around, but if there is we can merge this into it.
