Make sure you also add in a Rick Roll in there! 
 
Psychological warfare ftw

Perfect. Turn on the voice chat and start playing some Soulja Boy.  "
we can only hope this develops into some sort of voice chat rap battle "
That would make this even better.

I think he can just turn off the volume instead. Alt-Tab could crash the match they're playing (just as what Brad did with his placement match).

it's worth a shot sarge, we have to try at least, there's so much at stake
#63 Posted by ThatFrood (3375 posts) -

this is absolutely hilarious.
I'm rooting for you, dude.

@Rockdalf: actually wait don't we need his battlnet email for that lol
#65 Posted by jim_dandy (891 posts) -

This has to be like the scene from Apollo 13. 
 
We have a length of tubing, a roll of duct tape and a square piece of foam.
 
How do we save these men?!

#68 Posted by ArbitraryWater (11753 posts) -

This is so... great. I am rooting for you sir. If he mutes, just start typing the lyrics of the songs in the chat.

Actually, if you click "Add a character" you can use his Starcraft profile name, but we still need his 3 digit code.

Could probably search for it on the website, seeing how they track stats and all. 
 
Either way, someone needs to assemble the strike team!

This is so awesome! I'm rooting for you!

#72 Posted by Johnny5 (1355 posts) -

This is for the great final placement, we're all rooting for you :P

BREAKING NEWS: The Standoff is over, but not how you think 
 
i went to go get my earforce headset to start phase 2 of the standoff and as i ripped my creative zen dongle out of my front usb port to plug in my headset i hit the reset button on my pc, LOL i nearly cried as my pc started to reboot, i was like Anankin as he became Darth Vader at the end of episode 3 (NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!) so yeah, i ended up in bronze league rank 54 and he ended up bronze league div rank 19 
 
i want to say i am truly sorry to Jeff and the rest of the GiantBomb community for letting you down, as a prize, i present to you a pic of the douchebags profile, i will get my revenge...oh and by the way i was off by an hour LOL , the total time of the match according to my recent games was 6hrs and 24 minutes

I support this.

#75 Edited by Hadoken101 (784 posts) -

I'm going to sleep, but if I wake up and this is still going, this will truly reach a new level of greatness. Also Rick roll is oddly appropriate. NEVER GONNA GIVE YOU UP
Edit: Well that sucks. That may have been the single greatest use of time you will ever encounter for the rest of your life.

@evildeadron: It's okay we still love you, bro hugs all around!
#77 Edited by ArbitraryWater (11753 posts) -
@evildeadron: Well, now we all get revenge. Although it doesn't nearly have the server crashing robot army of death that sites like 4chan has, Giant Bomb users are still capable of much mischief. I'm sure people who own SC2 will find a way to get this douche back for not surrendering.

You are banned from Giant Bomb.

  @evildeadron: Damnit, evildeadron!  You've failed us!
 
 
Edit:  (It's ok though)

#81 Posted by Meteora (5787 posts) -

That was a terrible mistake. Its sad to see it end so soon after this topic was made. X_X

#82 Posted by Sincillian (530 posts) -
@evildeadron: DAMN DAMN DAMN!!!!1 OMG WTF 
 
jk. It lasted a long time. I'm surprised neither one of u gave up.
#83 Posted by evildeadron (830 posts) -

i was about 30 minutes away from going to bed and leaving my pc running all night, checking in on him in the morning, lol i got so jacked up for the next phase i made the most stupid mistake of all time (damn you fingers)
#84 Posted by Levio (1784 posts) -

You call him a "douchebag", when you're really just as bad as him.  You wasted as much of his time as he did to you, yet somehow you feel like the superior one.

The problem was that had the other player not lift up his factory like a jackass, the OP would have won. Instead, the douchebag won in what should have been a victory for the OP.
#87 Posted by evildeadron (830 posts) -

yes because if it was reversed and he had units and i had 1 flying building, i would have gg and surrendered, i always play as a good sport, so yes he was a douche and i was in the right

This is why they should add a "Draw" Button to the game, where if clicked by both players neither one gets a Win or a Loss.  
 
Also, maybe if no one from either side attacks any unit/building for like 2 hours, the game would automatically click the Draw Button for both players... or something :p

right or just say games can't go past 2 hours at all.
#91 Posted by evildeadron (830 posts) -
@Luke:
i agree on the draw button, or if terrans do not have a base or a scv buildings can not fly

Competitive matches, anyways. Some USM can go lasting beyond 2 hours.

or just say that buildings can't fly more than like 10 minutes I mean isn't that reasonable
#94 Posted by evildeadron (830 posts) -

there can be some creative solutions, although what happenned to me tonight was an odd situation coupled with playing with an incredibly bad sport...i should have been tipped off when i did "gl hf" at the start and he never responded

Can't win them all sport.

Guarantee this will be fixed.  I see no reason that buildings should be able to float for more than one continuous hour.

 Letting the opponent destroy your entire base has consequences.  Try not to let that happen.
#99 Posted by Wunder_ (1169 posts) -

Make sure you FOLLOW THAT FACTORY. You don't want to have 50 hellions on your ass after he secretly lands somewhere... Unless you know 100% that he doesn't have sufficient minerals to make a hellion or two. Those would fuck Zealots up bad. Good luck, and post a replay :)
