I mean i know why people are using in game but in game of Lemmings (that I played on my amiga 500) there isn't any trains.

People shoud stop using that term becasue there isn't any trains in that game.

Here is example of one level in lemings http://www.youtube.c...h?v=ipl4-SXJlM4

Pleas give me the level where train exist in lemmings?

PS: bring on with neg rep.

the reason why we call them Lemming trains is this:

- they follow the biggest tank to a certain point on the map. (like lemming do)
- While doing it, they form a long train of tanks.
- Also like lemmings they tend to die within 3 minutes of the battle by just 2 tanks.

2/10, mildly trolling with a hint of amusement. You can go better than this.

Well, on RU server they call these formations "deers" because they, um, move in one group.

I'd give 3/10 simply because he said Amiga 500.

Human social behaviours aren't logical. Your argument is invalid :P Good luck with trying to change that.

Oh, now i know where all those guys learned how to play WoT.

They first go all on Left Flank, while only one attacks on right flank. But as soon as right flank is cleared they all move there and leave left flank completly open.

In lemmings there is only one route to victory which every lemming in the end has to follow. That's not the case in WoT.

P.S. I played Lemmings in which they acctualy formed train and you had to quickly save them.

P.S.2 Why do you even care about neg reputation? Does it matter to you? Makes you feel better? I never cared what others think about me, I just express my and only my own opinion.

You do know, that lemmings are not only those small yellow/pink guys with blue shirts and green hair, do you?
Lemmings are animals, which migrate in large numbers, if their current place is overpopulated. On their way they do not act really smart. They jump off cliffs or go into the sea and die, which looks like suicide.

See here for Lemmings.

In this game the term is used because just like lemmings, those players go together in a big group only to die in a very stupid way... train because the long column of tanks they usually form looks like a train.

The referance is for game of lemmings. But my question is why people use word train with word lemings.
In game of lemmings there isnt trains.

Animal lemings don't sit i train and go to suicide (I presume I know more about game then animals)

Not sure if stupid or just excessively literal-minded.

It comes from a myth created by Disney Studio's in which they staged a 'Lemming Suicide', it was believed at the time and they won an Oscar...go figure.



Even thought the myth was exposed as false, it still persists to this day in peoples minds.

Tnx, but ...............

For example if ten people walk in line you dont call them people train becasue they look like train.

If you see 10 cars you dont call them car train becasue they look like train?

Shadrack, truth is what most people say, and most people are stupid. If most people say that 2+2=5 is true, then it must be true, although is false.

The latter quality is usually to be found if the former is in effect.
