I'm sure there's a lot more embarrasment out there somewhere so I thought I'd get the ball rolling again on this thread, I like it.
I was "leading" one of my teams two squads, my first time doing so. There were three different teams on each side and we're all waiting around for the admins to give us the go. I mumble "so is it game on?" By the time the question makes it to the guy in the back he assumes it's an order and yells "GAME ON!" I didn't realise what happened and figured he had a radio. So we start running in yelling "GAME ON!".
Some guys on the other side see whats happening and start high tailing it for a good position in the bunker we're running toward. I see this and start screaming GERMANY ASSAULT ASSAULT ASSAULT!! and run a one man bunker entry. I hit some cover and look back, NONE of my squad had followed me cause they'd seen the admins waving us off and I hadn't.
The game hadn't started yet, and there I was out in the middle of it by myself screaming for an assault that everybody but me knew (by then) was just a false start.
Nobody would believe me that somebody else had yelled game on and the admins were all just laughing their butts off.
That was my first and last day last day as squad leader.
Ummm...yeah I meant to say that. Didn't I?
