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 : No it was created by multiple authors from around the world. I just made it so its actually a mod instead of a complete game that's about 7GB in size. The readme file that is displayed can give you more info about the mod
  • Runsva : hey ntrainz did u make this mod all by yourself?
  • N_Trainz : If you need any other help, just shout out and I'll try to get back as soon as possible
  • N_Trainz : Its not a problem :D I do thank you for waiting for a long time to get the mod. Again hope you enjoy the mod and the other fun features it comes with
  • Legendary Da : I don't know how many times I said that, but thank you so much for your work. Considering how much time making an installer, making it work and uploading it to different servers, I thank you again for the effort you put in this. :D
  • N_Trainz : Legendary Da: Here it is, installers works this time and Moddb won't accept it as they say its too large to upload, so its on my Google Drive and here is the link, hope you enjoy it «link»
  • Legendary Da : I had guessed it was about the wrong area, though I still wondered why it had been removed. Thanks for taking your time to make something better for the community. Take as much time as you require, though; life still comes first.
  • N_Trainz : Actually it was removed by me for 2 reasons; 1. was it was uploaded in the wrong area and 2. the installer didn't autp - detect the disk version, only the Steam version (since that is what I have). Going to remake it so if you won't mind a but longer wat that'll be appreciated
  • Legendary Da : Thanks soo much for the mod, I couldn't access to the Internet lately so I couldn't write a reply. Btw, the mod is removed from ModDB, is it taken down, or you removed it yourself? Either way, thanks for the awesome work (at least for providing it) :D
  • N_Trainz : What game and mod are you dealing with?
  • Runsva : Can someone PLEASE help me i can't install anything on my game it just keeps crashing!!
  • 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.
