I was paired up one night with Hielco and the game site server started laughing so hard it booted me out of the game, but what was worse is that my computer knew all about Hielco and my gameplay level, that it shut down on me for two days just for being mortified.

 

:(   :(   :(

 

 

Actually, my most devastating loss was to TheOptician. As I lack the skills and experience to follow through a match in all phases with solid technique (opening game, mid-game, and endgame), I was unable to consummate a considerable lead I had gotten on him in the opening and mid-game phase: he was up one major, but I had three captains on him. I lost my concentration, failed to freeze the lanes and then he managed to successfully, patiently, and precisely clip my resources bit by bit until it was too late for me. In spite of the loss, it was a planned friendly match and it was just that–it was friendly, fun, extremely challenging for me, and it is one of the best Stratego matches I have enjoyed playing. (I've only played Fks once, and that was fun getting beat up pretty bad, and I always enjoy losing to UnladenSwallow...he's always full of surprises, and although in our gameplay record I have no wins against him, we have declared a draw twice!!).

 

My only wish for the players on this site, myself included, is that the quality of interaction between opponents will improve to the level that will allow for strong and fierce competition without sacrificing any of the fun that Stratego can afford to anyone who plays this game. There are sadly too many nasty and mean-spirited people who haunt this site...of course, occasionally you will meet up with someone who has a positive energy and is open to sharing a good spirited match.

Years and years ago, I played a guy (I think his name was Urish or something like that). I was about to take his flag with my miner when I got kicked out and lost. 


Yellowhat is the literal translation of my surname.

You know, Yellowhat, that story is so sad and pathetic that I think I need to drown my sorrows in a six pack of root beer.  :(  :(  :(

My most pathetic loss was losing to Hielco with 2 cols and 2 majors up. Don't ask me how that's possible but it happened.

Another pathetic loss was in the live world championships I moved to fast and let a know col take a major and give up my 100% win.

I lost to jookiyaya, still can't look myself in the mirror.

I probably cheated though so I likely deserved it.

Not really a single game, but they were all shamefull...

I remember years back before I had even made my whistler account at metaforge, I used to play ConKord quite regularly. ConKord was always an easy beat...but now he had won 1 or two games against me and his confidence went right up. Suddenly here I am with a record something like 2-0-10 vs him and that continued on for quite some time. I made a new account, and even though he knew who I was I started doing so much better and went from #108 or something on the ranks to #24 :D. Psychology is wierd...

Might be. Might be one of my other opponents at many WC's… Who the player was is not really important. He made a good move and I arguably made a less good setup and probably anticipated badly to the situation. I wasnt very lucky either that game :)
