the very last turn... by complete accident, I made the transfer of 2 come before the super important order I had given which I'd very well wanted to have gone first

The most painful part was that I knew I had first order too... I had actually took the time to try and figure out the turn order during the game (if you had first order last turn, you're opponent's taking the first order this turn)

Everything was right... all of my predictions/estimates/calculations on his income... (I knew his other picks would be for a bonus of 4, because picking in a bonus of 3 would have just been plain stupid)

...and apparently as it turns out, somewhere along the way I accidentally made a habit of clicking the button that makes your order go to the top

sooo... yea most embarrasing way of losing a game ever because I would have won 100% had I not made such a dumb mistake

I think I did something similar in a game I fortunatly won. I had a trap set (a lot of armies waiting the ennemy from coming and moving first move to cover my positions) in the important choke of egypt.

The thing is, I had a lot of other fronts and needed to delay moves everywhere else. So I used a delay card I bumped up as well. Even best, as I had the first order, I deployed my income at the soon to be attacked province in order to make a counterattack as last move after my trap and end the game.

So the worst happened and my first order was covered by a delay card. Not only I lost the province I wanted to defend, but I had the units there dying at a ridiculous rate and my trap units crashing into a wall. The consequence of it was my ennemy getting my safe income of africa out of the equation as we fought for 10 turns there before I could archieve to beat him.

I fucked up pretty bad earlier to Krzychu. 15-1 on ladder now as a result :/

I decided he had 8-9 income after 2 turns because AA had a bad warlord. Didn't take into account the possibility of a combo pick that didn't border, but could 3v2, and then have 1 leftover left to give him turn 2 11.

To be fair, that was also noob knyte who'd just realized that he was in one of the very few clans where his strat skills were above average.

That said, I bet I can still beat you in a 1v1 today. Even with that juicy inflated ranking. ;)

1v1 ladder ranking isn't that predictive, as Chancho could probably tell you

Turn 13. Somehow, I completely forgot Quebec and Nunavut (in Canada) are linked... Thus, I could have predicted an assault and hit West China immediately. Still haven't forgiven myself for such an embarrassing mistake that dealt me my first loss on the 1v1 Ladder. Since that game happened, I'd much rather face criticism for playing slowly and taking my time than rush a single turn and commit such an unforgiving mistake. XP

oh... where do I begin...

suffice it to say that I make a much better team mate or FFA player than I ever did on 1v1...

and if expansion is tricky because I have leftover armies on the first turn, or because of large wastelands... well...
maybe someday I'll have the heart to ask for constructive critique on my 1v1 skills... probably right after CORP's Battle Islands Tourney... :(

I guess it's because when you start to play better, your standarts change too. I bet that if I watched an old 1v1 game, I'd be embarassed as well at my performance and at how noob I was.

Just yesterday I picked a wastelanded bonus in a strategic Ancient Greece 1v1. My only bad excuse is that it was RT and not realising it had started, I rushed the picks a little. I guess when shit just happens once in a while you can't do much about it except laugh it off.

I only felt embarrassed because it was MotD who joined the game and probably thinks I'm a retard now haha. I can live with it more easily knowing I was very likely to have been beaten anyway, regardless of my mistake :)

waiting is the exact opposite thing you'd wanna do if you want to get better at 1v1... because the sooner you or someone else critics on your skill, the sooner you'll improve

the only reason why I've improved at all is that I always take the time to dissect the history of every game I've ever lost after a match has long been over to try and single-out each and every one of my errors...

^ok that and me stalking random games that Krzychu's played in lel

but yea you don't need a tutor for advice or anything... because you'd be suprised at just how much you can learn from staring blankly at an ended game

Several times recently, I have forgotten to make an attack to complete a bonus, or (in SR), with a 2, then a 1, instead of the reverse order, by accident. >_<

came so close to beating Krzychu...

https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=10670430

reason why it's embarrasing is how easily I could have avoided it...

turn 10: I knew he'd attack Japan but I wasn't expecting nearly that many armies... but the part I hate about it is how much turn order mattered

I played Krzychu once, the game was a lot closer than what I thought. His income and stack advantages were too much in the end though for me. The loss wasn't an embarrassing 1v1 for me though

I'm 0-4 vs. Krzychu, only three players have ever beat me the first four times I played them to the best of my knowledge.
