What happened to the fun?

Ok, heres the scenario.....

You are playing one of those epic struggle type games where you have been 'heroing' non-stop for 7 hours.  You've built up a level 24 Mephala vs. your opponents high level Malekith (sorcery dude).  The game is drawing to a close near the end of week 7...you are a couple turns away from DD/Flying over to attack but to get there it would be best to attack some creatures and retreat on back to that dungeon to double up your spell points.... You attack some seemingly harmless creatures go to retreat and *Bam* ... you forgot to take off the shackles DUH!.

It's the wee hours of the morning and of course you are tired and make that mistake, you tell your opponent...now I know 80% of you out there (or at least I hope) would immediately say 'oh, ok no prob..lets just re-load auto'.  But I don't begrudge the 20% who say 'oh well, ya lost'...I'll submit TOH loss no problem...but here's the part where I get a bit upset... Aren't you the least bit curious what the outcome of the intended battle would have been?  Submit win/loss....then come back and spend the extra 30min to finish the game.  

Hell, I'll submit the loss TOH-points don't matter at all...game is supposed to be fun.  Let's re-load auto and see what happens...I mean what is the point of building up a huge army, racing to collect arts for 7 hours and then saying "ok, game over on stupid/tired move"?

Just my thoughts...feel free to disagree.

If I wasnt the person who did the mistake I would gladly reload and play on, but...sometimes when I make a huge mistake I don't even want to reload and see outcome. Mostly because Im mad at the time I did it, but then when I cool down and realize finishing might be interesting to see its usually too late..go figure.

but I think people should let others reload on certain mistakes. hard to list exactly what they are, but you can get the feeling when playing. like tryin to retreat from creatures and havin shackles on Id let u reload, but if u tried to hit and run me and forgot shackles on, I would just laugh at you as you died

I will not lose.

what?
posted June 18, 2001 10:31 AM

OK heres the scenario.

I build up a level 24 hero and my opponent builds up a level 21 hero and then I attack a stack of monsters and then all the sudden I barf.

Because I reallize this map sucks or else I couldn't build a hero this high and I have had no contact with my opponent at all.

I barf so much I can't even report the game.

The next day I have to go out and buy a new keyboard.

Where's the fun in that?

One of the best games I have ever had was with Phantom on an XL. It went for 8 weeks or so, maybe even into month 3 lol. Anyway both our heroes were into the 20's easy and we had an epic battle, he with 41 spell power and 1000 spell points, me with a 4200 point implo. The game went for 13 hours, the map rocked, we both had a ball. I got him down to 26 water elementals in the end b4 his 2500 hit point res kicked in. At not one point did I feel like vomiting, or quitting, or saving, it was a hell of a lot of fun

Can someone please tell me what happened to 'Oris looks like' post? Did it get censored?!

Maybe I'm just cockeyed and can't read properly, but I can't find it anywhere anymore!

Crikey!!

Does that mean that rychen had -79 posts before that one? How low did ya go mate?

As for maps making someone barf, i figure there's lots of maps i've played and hated - but never thought much of constantly attacking them whenever i got a chance (or whenever i created a chance cuz i got nothing better to do) the way i figure is if i dont like it, someone else might - and behind the maps someone did actually take their time to make it - so why be so bloody rude whenever your fingers find their way to the keyboard?

eh.. sorry for that, its just nonsense to hear someone who says they're the designated voice of the people making a pointed effort to be hurtful whenever they see fit.  I've talked to lots of the people, and none of them seem so interested in being outright rude when its completely uncalled for.

Yea, Rychen that game was pretty epic . It actually went into month 3 week 2. The final battle was monstrous, and even with seemingly infinite armies we both had, i was left with 23 elementals and one morale on your unicorns was the difference in a fight where i was summoning 160++ elementals and you had implo of 4000++. That was a lot of fun, except for those ba5stards trying to sell me a DVD player at the end of game, hehe. That was what games are supposed to be like

Sorry to write off-topic, but rychenroller's posts show -78, which seems to be some sort of a bug. What was your number of posts and rank before it happened?
