What's your strangest excuse for losing a match

I think we've all got a story about how come match day everything that could go wrong did go wrong. Try not to call anyone out I just want some good stories!

Back in 2013 I lost a highlander playoff match because our sniper decided to go to the movies instead of playing the match. (this was late 2013 so I suppose it may have been to see The Wolf of Wall Street?) This meant our pyro swapped to sniper, our heavy swapped to pyro, and our backup played heavy. All things considered we put up a good fight, but in retrospect what a sour way to end the season.

in s5 of RGL in main we were playing against Jemond's team, it was must win or else we wouldn't make playoffs.
During the middle of the match, my computer kept turning off. At the time, I still used a regular hard drive for OS so it took like 5 mins to restart. We were in the lead (maybe like 3-2 or something), so after the like 3rd time I just said fuck it and we got a ringer, who ended up doing a little bit of trolling (dropped some ubers) and we lost 5-4 I believe.

In the end, the reason my computer kept turning off was because the power cable wasn't seated properly in the PSU.

I still have not explicitly revealed any of this to my teammates, so if you're reading this, sorry!

We were set to play the first round of playoffs but our demo vanished for over two weeks without telling anyone. As it turns out, he got arrested for possession.

I taunted on the koth_warmtic point at a div1 hl final when it was overtime 0:00vs0:00 because I thought it was a full wipe.

It wasn't.

During an old ESEA season I can't remember, We were up 4-1 on Gullywash and failed a last push to get the 5th cap. I respawned early on spy and tried to backcap.
They had a heavy on last as they pushed to second I came up behind the heavy and easily had the backstab to win the game but I didn't realize my sapper was out instead of my knife and died.
We ended up losing 5-4. All my fault, I've never forgotten.

Our team leader thought our team was too good so during the first week of playoffs we didnt scrim a single time and didnt have a pregame. Needless to say we got rolled.

Bottom barrel of S23 open, it was a newbie mix team. We'd forfeited our first match because we only had four people show up and couldn't find a ringer. The second match looked to be more of the same, and we went through about 20 people before finding a steel engi main to play scout with 180 ping in a 5v6. We lost in under 10 minutes. The team that beat us went 1-13 that season, with their only win being the curbstomp against our team.

to be clear,

DavyCBack in 2013 I lost a highlander playoff match because our sniper decided to go to the movies instead of playing the match. (this was late 2013 so I suppose it may have been to see The Wolf of Wall Street?) This meant our pyro swapped to sniper, our heavy swapped to pyro, and our backup played heavy. All things considered we put up a good fight, but in retrospect what a sour way to end the season.

this was my team and the sniper was axiomatic

so this is definitely my answer too

also our backup playing heavy for the first time turned out to be a savant and became our starting heavy next season, it was sneakypolarbear aka jake

esea s12 there was an update that made you crash when killfeed showed a dom or a revenge that involved you if you had a custom hud. half of my team including my medic didn't update their huds which fixed it so we would just randomly drop a player or two during fights and stalemates and we never paused to fix it lol

I played the week on snakewater last season and my game froze periodically in warmup, I figured it was nothing cause it (mostly) stopped.
I was back capping on last with 14 seconds left and the only thing to stop me was a soldier with 14 hp with the escape plan coming from lower. Getting the cap meant being able to tie it up.

My PC froze...

Remember to restart kids.

back in my first season of ugc our medic had literally dial up internet (not just slow internet, ACTUALLY dial up) and had to go to his university library and rent out a room to play matches. any time he didnt get a room he would either play in complete silence or on his home internet. didnt win that many matches that season.

also related: in season 28 i told my team a couple days in advance that i couldnt play a metalworks match because i was having a girl over that i was interested in at the time. last minute someone messages me that they couldnt find anyone to play, so i fucking played a tf2 match, comms and all, in front of said girl. we ended up winning 5-0 at the (cost of my pride) but at least i hit a cool clip.

I was also on this team. It was his disability money for his bpd and he tried to strangle his mom. Hope he's doing ok now tho, he was a good guy.
