Shouldn't this be in the Halo 3 forum? I played that game and I can honestly say it was one of the most boring experiences of my life. Not bad, not good, just boring.
 
I can say that because this board isn't isolated to praising Halo.

do you need all the mythic maps

bombing runs are usually put in general discussion.

ODST disc is required I believe. Although if there are more people who want to play without maps it could certainly be changed.

I might be there, i'm still suffering from swine flu so maybe i won't be able to handle being up late.

I totally would, but am without a) My ODST Mythic disc and b) my normal halo 3 disc. So therefore, I cannot. I'm annoyed too, I would love too.

I think that Gravity Axe one could've been gold if people didn't have infinite health.

That was some raucous fun... even though I planned to go on to play Brutal Legend.

@Red: WHERE WAS YOUR MIC?!
 
No but really, awesome time folks. I think Lies is taking some awesome screens from the events, and might be posting it here, or in blog post form.

I was just listening to podcasts so I couldn't really talk.

Good times were had by all. Well, most. We started up with some casual slayer on Citadel and Heretic, before moving on to some 4v4 CTF on Orbital

 Where Zell thought it was a good idea to cruise around our base solo on a Mongoose. I taught him his lesson. Of course, when he caught me doing the same thing later in the game, there was a certain amount of celebratory crouching over my corpse


 Red Team learns to dangers of moving in a group
Blue team pulled out and won that first game 3 caps to 2 after stopping the reds from scoring at the very last moment. After that we were just going to play some normal team slayer on Valhalla, but the party demanded shenanigans. So shenanigans we had.

Neutral Assault 400% movement speed. 200% gravity. Gravity Hammer spawns. Secondary weapon random. Bomb moves normal speed. Forced color blue. Indestructible vehicles. 500% shields.


 Indestructible vehicles and grav hammers led to some interesting situations. Seeing a warthog or mongoose go absolutely flying over top-mid was not an uncommon occurrence.
After fourteen minutes of deadlock and lots of confusion due to everybody being blue, red team pulled two last-minute scores to win 3 plants to 1. We headed to Forge ostensibly to set up a map full of aerial vehicles for us to play

 But we really just ended up making elephants fly
After that we went back to some standard gametypes, playing some KOTH, some Rocket Race (still mad fun), and some Assault on High Ground

 Tokyochicken. He didn't make it. Red team did manage to successfully defend their bomb plant though.


 Mad props to Shaun832, who, even though he was eating our bullets most of the night and had no mic, put up with our shenanigans. He's a pretty good Rocket Race driver too.


 My personal favorite moment. After I make fun of Zell's bomb planting technique- which involves running into the base then purposefully avoiding the plant point while getting killed- he has enough. I'm waiting for a Mongoose driver, so he throws a grenade at the goose. It explodes, flies sideways, and splatters jensonb who is running over to drive me.

Just a sampling of the stuff that happened. Great times, I really enjoyed myself. (Except for that last 2v2 where jensonb and zell kept killing themselves so me and TokyoChicken couldn't win. I got my perfection regardless of their shenanigans).
 
We need to have more of these things.

It was also one of my favorite moments of night. Hilarity ensued with the death of JensonB.

Gah - cant believe i missed this! i dont know why but i'd convinced myself it was Sunday that the bombing run took place! so when zell added me at about 1am, i thought he was doing it pre-emptively 
 
(Id gone to bed early, 9 hours of uncharted 2- twinned with ane arly start for football = sleepy) 
 
Looks like y'all had an awesome time tho =D

i.e grifball, only going faster but that's ok because you would have spent most of your time killed by vehicles. Endlessly. And then there was lies' godawful idea of an infection map, meaning that when i got booted  "because i'm UK" so you could all go play forge, i decided not to stick around for the next in a series of terribleness. 
#44 Posted by shaun832 (363 posts) -

I'm so glad I made it. The gravity hammer match was the most insane and crazy things I've done on Halo 3.

#46 Posted by shuyin_meteor (5 posts) -

I definitely agree with big_jon. 
 
If there was to be another, I would partake, and probably bring some friends.
