Anyone want a GB-only horde run?

#1 Edited by Pingu44 (117 posts) -

So, I'm fed up of many things on horde mode, which I'm otherwise loving. Such things include dudes leaving inside the first 10 waves, dudes leaving on the very first wipe and dudes leaving FOR NO GODDAMN REASON once you get to about 45 or so. So, with that in mind, I'm trying to round up a bunch of gamers who I know (by virtue of them being here) not to be assholes. Looking for 4 people to get to 50, any map, I really don't care, just all I ask from anyone is they don't bail midway through or after the first death. I imagine I'm not the only person suffering from this, so maybe we could get enough people together so that everyone has potential horde partners? Stick your gamertag down here to sign up I guess - I'm Pingu44666, add me at your leisure!

EDIT: Holy crap, that was a better response than I was expecting... Anyone have any preferences for times/days of the week? I'd love to make this a regular, weekly thing. I've also added everyone on here so if you don't have it in you to add everyone yourself feel free to use my gamertag the same way the GBTNT one is and go by friends of friends.

EDIT 2: Figured it would make sense to collect all the tags in one easy list. Add these people, or, if you're feeling particularly lazy just add me and hijack my friends list, all these guys will be on there!

I jumped into a Horde match with Pingu last night but the host quit or something at 38 and it chucked me out to the menu. Dammit!

Haha. I hear what you're saying, but I don't have any friends that play gears. So, like TC, I've been plagued with quitters. I know the GB peeps will be rad though!

mutators are the only reason i've finished wave 50, game full of randoms, did waves 1-49 and wiped on wave 50 about 10 times in a row, then people quit. Turned on super reload, did wave 50 solo on checkout once i drew a bunch of brumaks.

#13 Posted by Canteu (2863 posts) -

@P00zombie: Yeah, I hear you. We only 2 manned it cos the other 3 people left midway through and we just thought "screw it, we can do this". Was sick of restarting over and over cos of quitters. Anyway GLHB.

Sweet! I'll be adding all y'all once I make It back to the warm glow of my Xbox. Feel free to add me. GT is somewhere up in this thread.

I'm always doing Horde mode so any Giant Bomb brothers are free to add me, gamertag's GolazoDan. Never really done the versus mode, will try more over Christmas when presumably people will be online a lot. Would like to play Horde with guys I know off-game, be it you guys who I can chat to here or whoever. Randomers are a bit of a lottery.

I've finished Horde once. No mutators on Thrashball. Honestly I think most of the difficulty is in finding people with the staying power and ability to do well and stick with it. We had a good team of decent level 20-30 people, all of similar skill. One guy kept dropping in and out but the others stuck with it throughout which was nice.

@AckbarTheGreat:We're friends on live already, I could help you with horde. I've got the achievement long ago but Horde is definitely my favorite mode by far.
