Default ...The worst of times

What were your classic blunders or worst defeats?


In the final game of a tournament...

I used deepstike to drop my stealth team behind the enemy devilfish. I only stunned the 'fish (terrible rolls!) Aun'shi and his honor guard were inside the enemy 'fish and I knew I was about to get assaulted. So I tried to move the Stealth team (with Jet pack move) to block the doors of the 'fish. My opponent remedied me that "you can't move after you deepstrike." I felt like a total dork. At least I finished second place, And I lost to another Tau army.


Tau had just come out and I was winning almost every game, because my friends hadn't figured out Tau yet. Then a friend switched from Black Templar to Alotic Eldar and I killed him several times in a row. I was on a big win streak; so I suggested we play a campaign for the first time. It was miserable I lost 9 out 12 games over the next three months. Obviously I lost the campaign.


In a Cities of Death game against a 'Nidzilla army I got wasted. I conceded by turn 3. I still say monstrous creatures should not be able to use 'Sewer Rats.'

What were your worst losses?

Probably yesterday in a tournament game. One of my regular opponents ( Iron warriors with a few close combat squads and 2 speed characters ) just whooped my 4ss :P

It was a cleanse mission with reserves. This was the first time I encountered it with Tau and didnt knew my battlesuits would be in reserves Plus the line of sight to his quarter was so fecked up that I only could draw 2 lanes to him that where both 5 inches wide. Not nearly enough to target his units. This game was all about him assaulting my troops one by one. The only thing that happened that was nice was me blowing up his lord ( every time we play I manage to do that :P ) and moving my ionhead on one quarter to make it contested. That was all I could do.

It was a 3 way battle, me (tau) vs space marines and necrons. I ended up getting wiped out in the first 2 turns except for 1 crisis suit which was promptly assaulted by 4 squads of scarabs.

I got totaled by korne in two turns.
if you ever have to fight korne take out the troops first pummel every thing you got at them because they get about a million attacks.

i did kill Karn though so not total defeat.

Venom!!

I once (in 3rd edition) faced an Eldar army with a few deepstriking suits and stuff. Well, the striking scorpions took about 15 hits for no deaths and my deepstriking crisis suits scattered to close to the avatar and wraithlord. All I did the entire game was few wounds to that tag team. It was so bad. Then I proceeded to get wiped out to the man.

Cheers!

They can't.


Although Godzilla Nids are still really powerful in CoD. A Tyrant + Tyrant Guard parked on the objective with 4+ cover and Feel No Pain is pretty much impossible to get rid of for Tau.
