PMS brought six highly skilled players from various PMS clans.
Smiley PMS- In the yellow most of the game and still beat the crap out of us. I call it, "yellownage."
PMS Peach- You never expect such ownage from such a disarming name.
pms tart- May or may not have been inebriated. Still owned.
Mary Jane PMS- Owns Shishka. Both literally and with a Shotgun.
PMS Gamer Girl- Generic ownage at its finest.
Athena Twin PMS- Pirate or ninja?
Bungie brought six highly skilled men to the fold as well. Unfortunately, none of these skills relate to playing the game.
Frankie- Mad writing skillz.
Ninja 0n Fire- Sick banning skillz.
evil otto- Fly UI art skillz.
Billy77Bones- Wicked interfacing skillz.
KP- Sweet losing skillz.
Shishka- Conveniently timed return to Humpdays skillz.
Game 1: Team Slayer
Lockout, duals only
Game Duration: 11:23
General Tone of Game: Dicey
When we set this challenge up we knew that we'd probably have no chance if we let them have full control over the game settings so we told them that they could only use duals. In light of their awesomeness, we did duals with bonus points on. It almost worked.
Bungie actually had the lead for a few seconds at various points during the first few minutes. After the score got to about 60 though, PMS kept us at a distance of about ten points. We stayed to within ten until the score reached about 120, then they began to pull away, though slowly.
Most of the battle raged under glass. PMS was frequently crowding the room yet somehow didn't get blown to pieces with nades. They stayed up along the edges of the room and waited for us to run in. Being men, we couldn't help but run happily into a dimly lit room full of lovely young ladies. Straight to our doom.
250-208. PMS wins.
Game 2: Team Slayer
Midship, Battle Rifle/SMG
Game Duration: 5:37
General Tone of Game: Despair
Frankie dropped the duals only rule. I will never again blindly trust his decisions as once I had. Naturally, they chose Battle Rifle and SMG start and put us on a symmetrical map. I eyed the power button in a sudden rush of panic. No... now was the time to stand and fight. We must stand up to the oppressors! We would not go quietly into the night!
Our cries for mercy saturated the night. It was five minutes and thirty-seven seconds of pain. Their lowest score was greater than our highest by 25%. Somehow Billy77Bones got a triple kill, Ninja stuck Shishka and we're reasonably sure they BXR'd us. It's all kind of a blur, all that I clearly recall is the line, "Waiting to respawn..."
100-52. PMS wins .
Game 3: Team Slayer
Game Duration: 3:27
General Tone of Game: Renewal
This game was a vast improvement over the last. It was really fun and lighthearted. They still beat us but not as soundly nor in such a soul-crushing fashion as the prior games. It was very quick and no one player or team used a defining strategy, people mostly ran around throwing nades and blasting fools.
50-43. Bungie wins simply for coming within 10 points of PMS' score.
After the dust settled this was quite a fun challenge and it was good times all around. Thanks to PMS for accepting the challenge and for coming out and reminding us how it feels to be skinned and worn as pelts. Pelts o' nubblet.
