Misinterpreted a song that's supposed to tell you what to do in this quest, and jumped off a 100ft-high waterfall, intending to slam-attack a specific point with the specific weapon required for the quest. I missed and it probably wouldn't have mattered anyway. Drops from a certain height insta-kill you.

Successfully built the most ambitious fort I've ever created. It had a moat and wall for protection, traps for defebding against and capturing cage creatures (which also helped me acquire pet crundles), actual automation and efficiency and stuff, an above-ground farm, the works. I figured it was time for adamantine, so I found my first vein, dug 2 tiles into it and immediately destroyed everyone. I visited the area as an adventurer later, and was immediately ambushed by one of the demons who destroyed the fort before I could even get close to it.

I donít think youíre entirely telling the truth.

In all my time on the B12 forums Iíve never heard of such a game.

The opposing team had ONE point left before losing. Then they rushed all the Panzers(ALL of them) and even a King Tiger. Never could recover any of the victory objectives, not with their tanks sniping ALL my guys through the ground. My AI teammate could have pulled it back with a flank on the central objective using their half-dozen or so Ranger squads that they've been constantly producing despite the fact they cost 600 manpower when our team had a income rate of ~230mp per minute. But no, they just sit there.

I got eaten by a giant ant. Or webbed by a giant jumping spider. I don't remember. Earth Defense Force 4.1 can dole out really fast deaths where it's hard to keep track of things.

My considerably more experienced teammate (I was going solo), near the end of the game, attempted to wait out his enemy - he had a healing skill and his enemies did not.

However, he did not realize that, unlike in other games of the same genre, the "Safe zone"/"Ring" becomes extremely small, rather than outright disappearing.

When he did realize this, he attempted to quickly rush in and take out the two remaining enemies.

Unfortunately, this didn't go so well.

Now that our benevolent government has passed the "Internet isolation law", I'd ask you to not worry if I disappear for a month: This probably means that the Runet got separated from the Worldwide Web.

Ahh yes, the good ol' "burrowing" tank round. I also liked the ones where you change screen focus to look at them just as they fire, and the less-resource-intensive direct shot realizes it's being looked at and suddenly jolts itself back into an arc, which is clearly visible by the fact that it trails smoke through the whole affair.


And while rangers are all well and fine, I always found the real use of the infantry commander was to lay down as many howitzers as possible and blow up the world... Not necessarily the best use of resources, but I had fun.

Eaten by the alien in Alien: Isolation because of the unskippable and painfully long ending animation to the hacking minigame.

"Hmm, there's this horrible, inhuman screeching coming from the hallway to my left.  And it sounds like a monster weighing a quarter of a ton may be rushing my way, judging by the thunderous footsteps.  I certainly shouldn't hurry up and put down this hacking tool so I can grab my flame-"

That death was actually pretty much unavoidable.  The alien was in the vents and being quiet when I moved up to the door, and I didn't know it was nearby until I heard it exit the vent in the hallway right next to me while inputting the last code.  I was hoping the hacking tool animation would end before it got too close, but no luck.

Actually, I guess if I were paranoid and trying to go for the achievement for not dying I should have tossed a noisemaker in an adjacent room before hacking.  But that's such a hassle.

A body I wanted to loot was in a precarious position, on a steep slope next to some lava. I inched as close as I could to it but couldn't loot it. I took one more step, slid off into the lava and died in seconds.

Try getting Pelinal's armor out of that one, Knights!

Absolute fucker of a Yiga ninja threw my horse off a cliff. It wasn't until after I went back to the stable that I realized that your horse can in fact permanently die.
