The Eight Hour Halo Wars Duel
Yeesh. Talk about an online multiplayer slugfest. While browsing through the Halo Wars forums today, I caught this thread about a particularly epic battle that a poster’s roommate was involved in.
You see, it started out as a 2v2 match, in which the poster was defeated early on. His roommate (scruffalupogus) held his ground however, and proceeded to battle the two opponents to a standstill. This continued for a while. And by “a while”, I mean all night and into the next morning. And the afternoon. Eventually, one of the teammates quit, leaving just two combatants, scruffalupogus and GL0RYSEEKER to duel it out, RTS style, for a grand total of an 8 hour Halo Wars match.
Yes. 8 hours. You can check the match out here. Hit the jump for a few noteworthy statistics…
Total resources collected: 3,930,081
Total infantry killed: 693
Total vehicles lost: 3782
Total playing time: 483.2 min
The funniest part of the whole thing? The game finally ended because GL0RYSEEKER quit. I mean, really? You’d stay in a game for 8 hours and then just quit? And truthfully, it sounds like him and his teammate weren’t all that good at the game, if scruffalupogus could keep them at bay that long. Still kind of awesome though.
This reminds me of a couple of particularly ridiculous bouts I had during my time in Warcraft 3, though none quite so grand as this struggle. What about you guys? Ever had a ridiculous multiplayer match like this?
