This might spark an interesting discussion. Remember when you were running with the VIP and turned that last corner and could see the extraction zone? Victory was just a few yards away and then...

POP! You got eliminated from God knows where. EPIC FAIL!!!

So we ask you this, how close have you come to winning a round, only to lose in the final seconds? Give us the details!

I was the last one alive on Bridge, I had the M16MDR. The last guy was running towards Zulu, and I spent almost an entire round on him but missed, and he made it to Zulu in the NICK of time. I should have thrown a grenade when I had the chance. I had pretty bad cover, but low health and didn't want to risk being seen. He wasn't very cautious but managed to dodge my bullets.

on the alley one time i was escorting a vip.

as a whole team the plan was that we advance to buckets by running through the hotel, fair to say we lost more than a few buddies on the way and rightly they lost a few too.. subsequently we ended up alone, just me and the vip.. you could say the mission was was already doomed, we felt severely outnumbered and holed up in the building next to buckets. i shot a guy who ran through, a rambo.. the vip decided he wanted to make a dash for it in the back alleys, i take point.

heading down toward the meow cat alley we dispatch 2 other enemys, (figured we had to be at least 2v2 by now) but unfortunately i got hit in the encounter and was bleeding out, i didnt have much time left, my real life heart was pounding louder than my ingame one, i thought we were gonna do it! i was convinced.

we notice the road is clear, we could actually see the flare, victory was near, soooooo close! we start to move out..

we come to the part of the road where the road crosses and goes up toward the hotel, i get shot in the head, dont know where from, insta killed, i am confused.. i watch the vip take cover prone behind a car, he waits there a little while, nothing? its quiet.

time was running out so he starts to run full speed toward the flare.. boom headshot.. mission failed.

emotions were high, i rage quit and have not played a vip round since.

I was already dead, but this was just so awesome...
Ranch: Activated Objective. Only one or two guys left. One of them starts running down west ravine into the tunnel. Since I'm dead, I'm looking around in third-person and see two baddies behind him. One of them hits him right before he ducks into the tunnel. He's standing there about halfway down the tunnel. I'm still looking around, and see another bad guy sneaking up behind him trying to melee him. Our guy's about to be melee'd, when the two NME that were chasing him come around the corner. Our guy crouches, the guy behind him melees and misses, and the two outside hit their own guy and TK him, then our guy kills the two NME in front of him, then turns around and secures the one behind him. Unfortunately, he bleeds out and we lose the round...

There was another time, too, where they barely lost. Alley VIP. I'm defending, and have just killed the enemy SDM on their roof. I'm not a good sniper at all, but I figure taking his gun is better than not having it. The only two other guys on my team were just killed far east, so I'm the only one left. I run down the fire escape and around the corner onto the street. I see the VIP coming out of hotel, and try to snipe him. Like I said, I'm a horrible sniper, and I miss. The VIP runs for cover, and I start running down the street. I'm about to our fire escape and I see the VIP and two baddies almost at the flare. The bad guys start shooting, the VIP keeps running, and I just stop. I pull up my DMR and start spraying-and-praying. You know what happens? Lucky headshot less than 10 feet from the flare. I think that's my first, last and only kill with a DMR.

Idea for AA4: Replays!

Good stuff dddddddd207!

Here's an interesting one from one of our Facebook friends:

So i went idle then return back when the bug in CO Stronghold still existed. I threw the briefcase out the match causing a team death match. Why? I was last alive and i knew at least 6 nme remained all camping extraction. I fired some shots before dropping it to make em suspect a tk. Needless to say a group of three came to scout...i had made it to the nearby castle tower roof....pop pop pop. 3 headshots. Unspotted but still i moved positions just in case. Hid in the jail cells for a bit and then popped a smoke outside near the cannons. Drew in one saw gunner. I couldnt get a clear shot so i waited. He started to head back to the bridge stairs and i prepared for him to walk in the opening. but he stopped. his gun moved towards each tower looking at my last position....then another one comes out of nowhere fron the tunnel and i pop three in his chest knocking him down. The saw gunner lights up the doorway and i retreat. I fall back to the clock tower and assume that there is now at least 2 healthy 1 injured. Since i dislike being trapped i dont use the clock tower to scout. Instead i headed to the extraction thinking that i could possibly take out the third man....i find 4. 1 idle...so i melee him then 2 come out of boat house. Pop the first in the neck knocking him down. Then next shoots me in the thigh....im bleeding bad. But i pop him in the head. Then the 4th comes from the coastal alleyway. Shoots my arm but i get him in the chest 3 times fast. At this point i have killed 7 of the 6 i suspected and for sure have 2 remaining. So now im unsure of how many of the 13 were actually alive...and im bleeding out. So i hold up in the boat house and pop a smoke into the courtyard and then one near the castle/ladder tunnel area next to the bridge. The injured guy from the jail cells comes out and down he goes. Next the saw gunner sprays in my direction but then runs dry. Pop him in the face. 9 down. And still didnt win....i have 2 red bars left before i fall over and im getting desperate. I turn around and there is the nme dmr running through the door. Shoot him five times i dont even know where. He goes down. 10 down....how many are left...did my team do anything while i had my bathroom break? I check the extraction and the doorway gets sprayed by a saw. I hate saws . So i flash and the mad man rund through the door firing every which way. I kill him. 11 down. Then i turn to see another body....the blind gunner killed his buddy...saving my life. 12 down. Then i go to secure this poor tk victim only to here clank clank....grenade. pin pulled. no escape. Boom. Was so close to victory ...

Team Fortress 2 already has replays but we can add replays into AA4.
