Sad but well deserved around here.

Honestly seeing how I've taken this break since I have no mic- I just feel right about there as well.

Wonder what the 'next game' will be :P Hope it'll include you lot, as you've all been a real pleasure ;3

But I think IB will be a rare log in for me unless asked by someone.

Yeah, it was it was a bittersweet moment as we left the McKinley...likely for the last time.

I'm perfectly content knowing there's absolutely nothing left for us to do to be "better" at this game. My only hope is that Microsoft gives Double Fine a chance to try to give us another beatdown in the future.

The "next game" for a few of us is Minecraft. We've been in the process of designing a pretty sweet hunter game...so feel free to join us!

You guys are amazing!

Did you take any pics of it? Unfortunately we didn't track the base health % on the leaderboard... I never dreamed that a team could get to wave 100 without taking any base damage!

Even better, CrackaLackN recorded a video!

I'm sure he'll upload it to Youtube in the near future. It won't be like the hour long video from our

run though, because I think his camera stopped recording a couple times.

The important thing is he got the beginning, most of the middle, and the last several waves. We ALMOST got hit by a volt dropper on wave 100. And by almost I mean it came within seconds of getting a drop on us.

So satisfying!

Thanks Mr. Mooear, I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say that means a lot to us coming from you.

Here's some frames from the final wave

The last wave was a bit of a nail biter especially because the VD died right before bombing orange base.

So, I just want to say it was a blast(though, frustrating at times) transforming and perfecting the strategy to accomplish this. I feel like this mission was an attempt to try to squeeze as much fun and playtime out of this game as possible and it truly worked. It really brought the challenge back and kept us communicating constantly. Also, I just can't leave out the past teams of players we've played with, so a shout out to the players that contributed to this end result include(but not limited to) ReverendBeast, REDPHIENX, MakThuumNGatha, Confury, and others.

ps - the video is currently in the making but probably won't be available to watch until next week

Hey guys HB Walrus here! I was very lucky that CrackaLackN asked me to be a part of this even with the fact that we only played together 2 or 3 time before that day and this was only the 2nd time I have been to wave 100 on settlement. He believed in me and even vouched for me saying that "I was good" to BaddestEver and Julica Knegt. For all that id like to thank CrackaLackN and id like to thank all my team mates who insisted that I held my own weight even though I still feel I just road the wave of there greatness for letting me and trusting me be the 4th man for this small bit of gaming history. Thanks guys for an amazing day i wont soon forget!

P.S. Damn that canadian internet!

Will we get special mention in the Award Ceremony at the IB Convention? Maybe a trophy or plaque or something? With our names engraved on it?

As a devoted Trench Marine since day one, I tip my hat to you guys (and gal.) You have truly won the war. I've been playing games for some three decades, and this is one of my couple favorites of all-time. I've spent multiple hundred hours in it, and I'm glad to see there are others who've enjoyed it as much (even more, in a few cases!) I wish I hadn't been so inactive on the forums (or really my 360 in general) over the past three months, as I'd have loved to play with you guys.

The I.B. team should send you guys autographed lithos or something to commemorate. Not that erecting statues in your honor wouldn't be more fitting, but I'd say the prior suggestion is more cost-effective. ^_^

Finally, right?

about time!

Watching this video makes me do two things:

1. miss you guys

2. want to play again

What about a "sniper turret only" challenge? Plus, we never did get around to that "no trench weapons" challenge, did we?

Snipers only would be pretty hard, considering there's no dampeners to stall willies and there's no collectors to collect scrap. In other words, I'm game.
