Humpday Hoopla

This week's Humpday Challenge actually took place on Tuesday night. We were originally planning to play the guys from Halo Babies last week but due to last minute conflicts we had to postpone. And, since their team is unavailable on Wednesdays, we settled for a Tuesday match. Obviously I haven't been in a huge hurry to recount our latest in an ongoing string of defeats... but, to give props to our opponents, it's only fair that we at least acknowledge that the match took place. Here's the quick and concise recap of what happened on Tuesday night.... (check out the Halo Babies website for their take on what happened). [b]Team Bungie[/b] Shishka, Achronos, Evil Otto, New001, Ninja on Fire and myself [b]Team [url=http://www.halobabies.net]Halo Babies[/url][/b] TMC Elite, Gruntsbane, AllMaster D, Milk N Cereal, Live killa and hnbmrsmiley [b]Game One[/b] Team Slayer on Lockout (BR start) [url=http://www.bungie.net/Stats/GameStats.aspx?panel=stats&gameid=198563545&player=Shishka]Game Stats[/url] Duration: 04.53 I actually sat out this match since the Halo Babies team was short a player. I can't speak to the specifics of the match but the score pretty much speaks for itself. Live Killa represented his team with a nice 7 kill spree while Milk N Cereal gained the most amount of overall kills with 14. Achronos was the top scorer for Team Bungie with 11 kills but our top player New001 had a disappointing 5 kills and 9 deaths. Final Score: Halo Babies wins 50 to 37 [b]Game Two[/b] 1 Flag CTF on Burial Mounds (first to 3) [url=http://www.bungie.net/Stats/GameStats.aspx?gameID=198598573&player=ske7ch]Game Stats[/url] Duration: 22:46 Gruntsbane decided to show up for Team HB so I was able to return to even out the teams. CTF on Burial Mounds CAN be fun.. but before the game even started we knew this was going to be a drawn out struggle. As anyone knows, playing the first to 3 scores often results in an insanely long match that could very well take up the entire night. The first round resulted in a stalemate for both sides as each team tried to feel out the other one for any signs of weakness. Halo Babies managed to get our flag outside but a well coordinated defense prevented them from scoring. On our second offensive round we pushed hard and managed to break through their fortifications and get the flag out into the open. As you know, once the flag is outside the base, the chances of scoring increase by approximately 90%. And score we did. Credit for our first (and only score) goes to Shishka. We continued the back and forth push and pull for several more rounds and neither team made any real progress in their effort to score. Finally, after spending over 20 minutes on this game, we decided we were calling it. We gave Halo Babies one last offensive shot and then we ended the match (we had already gone through 4 full rounds and Halo Babies had their 5th shot on offense). This would prove to be a bit controversial but since we ended up losing 2 of the 3 matches nobody made it into a big deal. Kudos to New001 for stepping up and finding his game with a match high 36 kills. (where were you last game??) Final Score: Bungie Wins 1-0 [b]Game Three[/b] Team Snipers on Coagulation [url=http://www.bungie.net/Stats/GameStats.aspx?gameID=198612292&player=ske7ch]Game Stats[/url] Duration: 8:01 This was the game that we picked since New and a few of us are quite fond of sniper games. At least, we used to be. The match started out great with both teams picking one another off at long distance while the lead switched back and forth. It was neck and neck for the first half of the match but then things started to slip away. Yours truly played incredibly horrible (partly due to nearly a 2 week hiatus and the inevitable decay of my reaction time). Acrhonos and I managed to get a mere 2 kills each (compared to 7 and 9 deaths respectively). In the end our entire team became pinned down at the base while Halo Babies took up positions on the ridges and rocks surrounding our spawn points. It was a closely fought battle but in the end we couldn't quite pull it off. Final Score: Halo Babies wins 50 to 46 And there you have it... another humpday, another close defeat for Team Bungie. I can honestly say that the team is starting to feel the effects of loss after loss. I hope the weekly tradition can continue well into the future but losing is only so much fun. : ) Until next week...

  • Posted: 6/18/2005 11:41 AM Subject: DEPLOYING TO AFRICA ONE LAST REQUEST BUNGIE!!!! Hey, I been playing halo a long time since the gamespy days, I couldn't do xbconnect because I my firewall. And continue to go on killing sprees with halo2. But as all my friends know I'm a Marine and June 30 I will be deployed to Dijibouti, Africa for one year. So pretty much I miss xbox 360 launch and more than likely halo 3. So before I deploy I would like to ask the guys at bungie and Frankie if they would do a humpday challenge with my and my clan before I leave. Sort of as a good bye gift and a great memory. This is my last tour of duty before my time is up in the Marine Corps so hopefully I'll make it back, hey if I can do Iraqi twice I think Africa should be easy but who knows. Anyway I sincerely hope that I do get to have a humpday challenge with my clan and the Bungie Team, and that my words aren't just going to be sent to the back of the forum with no replies. But hey, I tried. Thanks for the great memories my friends and for the great game bungie. And if you see me after June 30 online it's probably my fiancee she likes to play ESPN 2k5. Sincerely, MarineRush Sgt B.M. Connors USMC Bump the thread in my signature, or keep this one going. We need Bungie to see this and fulfil this request. So, keep this alive. This isnt for me, this is for MarineRush. Bungie there is a MASSIVE thread about this in Zanzibar. I know i will lose alot of respect for you and so will other people if you dont do this. It will be great PR for you. Tell us why you cant. We really want this for this guy. The link to the Zanzi thread is in my signature. Tell us why you locked the one in this thread. C'mon Bungie!

  • Bungie, I think that you guys should challenge random people, clans or not, and get them to gather a few friends for a match for a while, instead of these people that are all famous and all. It could just be for a morale boost for you guys. What I'm trying to say, is that I would kind of like to have a match with some of my friends and Team Bungie.

  • C'mon Bungie, you can do it! I believe in you! You are the creators of the game, don't let these gamers shut you down at your own game. I'm rooting for you!

  • Well at least your whole team didn't quit on you... ...quitting has doubled since the update was released. And half the time the people quit during the first round. With the game still in doubt, or the 1st time they die. Happily cheating (overall) does seem to be down. [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] SketchFactor losing is only so much fun. : )[/quote] Agreed. However, being relentlessly spawn killed 4 on 1 would likely qualify as less fun. I want to love this game, but it seems like there are some really basic player issues that are making the experience less and less fun. 1. Why no safe spawn points? (sooo many games have this) 2. Temporary health boost or invincibiliy when you first spawn or within a certain distance from your spawn. 3. Quitters shouldn't be able to reenter a matchmaker game until the game they quit from is done... If they try they should be put back into their old game. I would really like to see some of this stuff tackled in future updates! It doesn't make me feel any better if the quitters are on the other team either... If i wanted to play a shuttle run game I'd pull out NES Track and Field. Good luck next week. -g1

  • I really don't understand how bungie can suck so bad. They can't run a game to begin off with. Everyone gets standbyed and mod chipped but that's besides the point. They suck at running halo 2 and the suck at playiong halo 2. My little bro who is a level 15 right now could win against them and that's sad. Bungie, play me and a couple of my friends...You won't get a flag capture, bomb plant, or over 15 kills.

  • A think that Achronos and his team absolutley suck.I loked at their stats and they did horrible. I am better than them and they helped make the game. Got a problem with this talk to Brandyman online. [Edited on 6/13/2005]

  • Yes, it was a good game. However, Bungie seems to be getting beat almost every time. They even admit that they only play on Humpday. It just seems to me that it would get pretty old getting beat almost every week. Yeah, they should have screenshots. I can't wait for the discription of Backwash to come out. [Edited on 6/12/2005]

  • first off, great games by both teams. even tho they designed the game, bungie doesnt automatically have to be the best out there, there is always someone better. secondly, i was wondering if you had to be "famous" or something to play the bungie ppl. i no they probably get a million challenges but are they ever gonna play an everyday clan? it would be great if me and my closest could take them. hopefully not ruining their morale too much ;)

  • Bungie should start to accept challanges from clans or groups of freinds on Halo2 that day.Then we'll really see how good Bungie is at their own game.If you are with me on that one send a reply to it.

  • Good point Jimmychatt. Bungie keeps getting beat 'cause they only play THERE OWN GAME once a week. If they acually tried some team building stuff outside of the Humpday stuff they might acually win most of the time. As it is, if a clan gets beat by Team Bungie it's kinda embarrassing. SO GET WITH IT BUNGIE. It has got to stink gettin' beat at your own game.

  • All team bungie needs to do is practice, as a team. more frequently. other teams cant believe they have a chance to playBungie, the makers of the game, so they of course practice their asses off. come on bungie, what happened to your motto? ;)

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Harbinger187 I really wonder how good the Bungie guys are cause I have never played anyone they have played so i have no clue what to compare them too. I bet my clan would own them though especially with a four on four team i have in mind versus whoever they got.[/quote] Yeah that's why you won 0 out of 16 games in Minor Clanmatch, and 1 out of 7 in Major right?

  • I hate to say it but ever since u Bungie people got real busy on being "popular" with all the maps u guys have been sucking on ur humpday challanges. U guys need to focus ur energy on doing good and showin people whos boss @ Halo instead of gettin laid to boast to ur friends. This is all constructive critisism. U need to focus ur energy on kickin @ss to the lower class Halo players. U guys should be the top dogs. Why not go for being the top people on the leaderboards. Or since ur control them, hack ur way to the top. Nobodys gonna care if u guys r on the top.
