    Here's a Brokeback challenge for my fellow PUGers (part-time included).

    This isn't about ego or winning, every other contest is about winning, this is about losing. Here you can show us screenshots of how you carried your limp team into the jaws of defeat while wondering what on earth they even did.

    Rules:

    Solo queue
    Your team must have lost
    Your score and/or damage must be roughly twice as high as anyone else on team. The sadder the better.

    No winners here, only glorious losers!

    Let us look back and laugh at our former misery together.

    My morning submission:

    I would have the requirement be that your score/damage is best in game but your team lost.

    Well the challenge is about carrying your losing team and when you're the last one alive within a few minutes it's hard to out-score 10-12 enemies.

    Your idea makes this quite a challenge indeed.

    You're one sad customer fx, well done!

    I need to start screenshotting my losses for this challenge, I normally never bother and now I can actually look forward to something if I get smashed.

    And also from just last night but solo queue...

    [​IMG]

    Team includes one afk, one who seemed unable to move his legs and one team killer. Plus the Cat who literally stood behind me as I killed first one Atlas, then the flanking Nova, to die to the Warhawk and Atlas with them as I was unable to retreat at all. Then he died w/o firing a shot....

    Actually I seem to have a lot of defeats but nowhere near FX's. The group queue ones are much more impressive:

    Here's what I could find. Gonna put them in spoiler tags, since it's every screenshot I have on this PC. If I find more on my laptop later, I'll post them too. There's a couple that don't quite qualify, but they are so close or painful that I had to include them ;)

    This one I'm not QUITE double anyone on my team for score/damage, but it's a Nova, so I'm using it :p
    [​IMG]

    I remember raging after this match...how did I get stuck with such a shitty team?

    [​IMG]

    How about a Summoner round! This was the first round ever in a Summoner for me...and I STILL outclassed the entire team! If you took any one lance and added them all together, I still outdamaged them...
    [​IMG]

    This one doesn't quite qualify, but it's so bad that it really should...
    [​IMG]

    Another great match for me, all down the tubes.
    [​IMG]

    The PAIN!
    [​IMG]

    Eh, close enough to qualifying ;)

    The point of this is to show the current sadness of solo queue and the enormous disparity between wins and losses. It's either by the skin of your teeth last man standing or a complete steam roll.

    Also shows how often when you solo queue that you may literally be the only person amoung 12 who can walk and torso twist at the same time.

    I think it's a good social experiment.

    Solo queue only. I want to see your most nerdraging losses playing alone.

    Durandal your miserable games cheer me up even more.

    If anything this thread is where we can come to cry on eachother's shoulders and look back and laugh at our frustration and sadness in the solo game. Winning all the time is overrated.

    A Screenshot from August 2014.

    1300+ damage (3.7 times what the second dealt, 2.3 times what the best enemy dealt)

    The saddest part is it was during a ladder challenge. :cry:

    Well, the happy part is it is my highest damage in Oxide (and one of my highest damages ever). :thumbsup:

    Should have called it the "FML Challenge" instead!
    No screenies, but I have definitely done those 3+ kill 1000 damage club rounds of defeat, then again many of us have done things like that.
    Well, it is both funny and frustrating at the same time, especially when some of them are yelling at each other constantly.
