How to NOT boost on AFKs

Sat Jan 15, 2011 4:22 pm

Playlist: Invasion
Party: HWM Sarge, HWM RJ, HWM BlacKnight, HWM Yozi, Cruckeyee, Oblivion Demon
Link: http://www.bungie.net/stats/reach/gamestats.aspx?guid=13070968083096958134

Prologue: After many unsuccessful, but valiant pushes on territorries Alpha and Bravo, the majority of blue elites (which will be refered to as Blargs for the remainder of the story) have given up on capturing their objective and have decided their K/Ds are more important than the possibilities of winning a credit jackpot. So they all quit, except one. Their AFK brethren who is left defenseless to the incoming swarm of incoming spartans. Upon the discovery of an AFK enemy, the spartans decided not to boost rear admiral commendations, but to help the lonely blarg in his quest for victory. Hilarity ensues.

Spoiler: show
To the territory we go!


Slowly but surely...


SWARM TACTICS!!!


Almost there.....


YES! BROTHERS!!!!


3 minutes of pure shenanigans:


Tier 1 Rendered Video


Spoiler: show
Now that our first objective was complete, we failed to take into account that we needed the blarg to pick up the Bomb himself! ::FP::


So we waited....


Then suddenly, a rogue sticky flew through the air! Our Blarg friend was started by the presence of so many enemies!! ::ahh::


Kaos ensued for a few seconds.


None the less, he eventually figured we were friendly forces and promptly picked up the bomb and armed it.


Flying V!


Escort and all.


And of course BK goes for the assassination because no Blarg escapes our wrath!



Many lolz were had. Just goes to show that it takes a little effort to be nice, and sometimes we make some friends. ::collab:: Just think of how confused that guy must have been when he came back standing on the bomb surrounded by 6 spartans. ::panic::

lol, that was a funny game. Midway through pushing this guy into Bravo, we got hate mail from one of the guys who quit, who told us to "leave their spawns alone" because we'd been picking off the guys spawning their teammates.

*They were leaving their spawn points. They did capture some time on each territory, but they became frustrated that they obviously weren't going to capture with 30 seconds left.

I sent him a message at this point: "Press X".. not sure if that's what made him come back.

Also whoever's laying on the floor in this pic is obviously not dead, just really tired from all the pushing. Those blargs are HEAVY!

Good job posting this, RJ.

While we waited, Cruck and Sarge wanted to listen to the radio. So I blew it up with 2 shots of my magnum and Cruck punched me in the head. ::lol:: ::roll::

I recall a game just a couple days after the Noble maps dropped where I was in a game with Wheels & Oboe... Half the other team quit in a game of stockpile, so we decided to take flags to their base and earned the guys that were left on their team the Stockpile achievement. One of the guys that was left actually decided to shoot at us even though there were 4 of us bringing flags their way. I think he had to finish 1. Good times ::thumbs::

You're invasion game looks like it was a blast!

Just got around to watching the video... really needed the laughs so thanks!

Someone really should post this on the Bungie blog. Is the rest of the game render worthy?
