* UnfortunateItemSwap: In a competition against a crew from the U.K. in Blackpool, the speaker wiring got mixed up. Since the music CD contained both the time codes (read by the firing system to play the synchronized cues) ''and'' the soundtrack on two different channels, the speakers ended up playing beeps produced by the data instead of music. While it did get fixed, the music operator ended up restarting the CD from the beginning instead of trying to fast forward to when they stopped the show to fix the mix-up, leading to very awkward DeadAir (and a very angry crowd.)

* DramaticIrony: At a competition in Berlin where the GFA crew believes that the other teams aren't playing fair, they end up learning the next day that they misinterpreted a rule stating that shells that do not contain any effect (i.e. ones that just make noise) were forbidden. They had misinterpreted it, believing that they were okay ''if accompanied by visuals.''.
