Re: What players turned a bad mistake (certain defeat) into a victory?

There is no such thing as a stupid mistake turned victory.

If you don't launch battleships on Solomon Islands. YOU LOSE.

If you don't bring the Iowa and New Jersey together on Sibuyan Sea. YOU LOSE.

If you don't have ALL your ships go only North or South on Steel Monsters. YOU LOSE.

If you don't turn on damage control for your ships. YOU LOSE.

Your only hope is that for every stupid player who does something inane on your team, there is an equally stupid player on the other team. Otherwise you're screwed.

Re: What players turned a bad mistake (certain defeat) into a victory?

Teams that don't communicate a a sure way to lose.  No communication = almost certain defeat

In fact, there have been at least a dozen instances were my team was losing because they weren't even attempting to communicate.  In sessions like that, I have no choice but to leave because I can't work with a team that doesn't communicate... it's impossible.

Oh, and another tactical error:

If you don't join up all three Jap CAs in Port Moresby before advancing, you lose

Re: What players turned a bad mistake (certain defeat) into a victory?

I've been playing this game since it first came out--almost four years ago.  I've seen almost every possible way to win when you shouldn't, and loose when you should win easily.  There are very few hard and fast rules.  When great players, average players, and noobs (and team killers) show up everywhere, anything can happen, including splitting bbs on sibuyan and winning (not often...).

Who's the best player at turning a loss into a win?

    My answer:  The kind of player:

    . Who is a great leader
    . Who does not crack under pressure, even when the enemy has more units than him
    . Who is a genius when it comes to WWII naval and air tactics
    . Who knows how to communicate with his team

In Surigao Strait, if you are Jap, and your aren't alone, you'll lose. The key is to kepp fleet literaly together, which a team never does eventhough you scream it lol.

Re: What players turned a bad mistake (certain defeat) into a victory?

The main objective is to keep all your main units together in order to provide mutual assistance. Split them up, and it is almost certain defeat.

  • N_Trainz : Legendary Da: Its now live on Moddb and here is the link, requires a Batlestations Midway game to be installed to work «link» - midway - skinpack/addons/international - bsm - collection - light - version Enjoy
  • Runsva : are we still talikg about the zyy modding pack??
  • N_Trainz : Yeah I wanted to do this, but the installers were being a pain giving me errors about something. I finally got it working, and just figured out how to make the updater now since it'll be two parts with one containing the misc files and the other mostly the mpak files. It'll be a stand - alone DLC mod just like the Bismarck Mission Pack was. Like I said I plan to have it all completed and uploaded by this weekend
  • Legendary Da : No, no, not problem at all; I am already grateful that you were thinking about this subject, I can wait as long as you need to. Thanks for the help (again), and feel no need to rush this subject; we all know that the life comes first. :)
  • N_Trainz : Hope you won't mind the wait, it'll be worth it if you ask me, and yes I do understand that you can't download due to that cap Mege has. I heard the PM was down, but haven't tried it as I been busy helping the BSmodHQ team with things and then those that are life - in - general.
  • N_Trainz : To Legendary Da: I been trying to work on that actually, what I'm experiencing is the pack size> I already made it a light version of the mod, so hopefully this weekend maybe, might be sooner
  • Legendary Da : To N_Trainz: So, um... I can't exactly download from Mega for some reason; so could u upload that mod to Moddb? I am sorry for making extra work for you, and I TOTALLY understand if u can't upload it again; so, do as you want; I just wanted to say somehow I couldn't dl the mod (btw, why isn't the PM working?). U don't have to post the link either; I'll find it from the site if u upload it. Thanks whatever u do, and so sorry for the extra wish. :/
  • Runsva : Anyone there??
  • Runsva : That is on the zyy modding pack v1.0.3 forum.
  • Runsva : If that hepls...
  • Runsva : The link that I donloaded from is the one message before the last one on page 4 on this forum because all the others are for some reason down.
  • YamatoFavor : Zyy eh... doubt I installed successfully and seems like I lost the build
  • Axis_Crusher : Well I am aware of that mod, but I've never installed it. I'll ask around if I can find someone that successfully installed it.
  • Runsva : The zyy modding pack v1.0.3
  • Axis_Crusher : Just so we're on the same page which mod are you trying to install?
  • Runsva : Game*
  • Runsva : Do i need to make a copy of my gamr folder like Battlestations Midway?
  • Runsva : No I didn't install it into a separate directory, it is in steamapps - - > common like any other steam game.
  • Runsva : pls help me fix it i really want to play this mod :D
  • Runsva : and i copied every file to the mpak folder in the bsp directory, and when i try to run it it just crahes onthe main menu screen
