Went something like so...

Game Mode: Team Slayer

So we started out and it appeared my team were poo. I checked to see if they were still there, and apparently 2 had quit! In a 4 v 4 Slayer!

Anyway it got to about 10-5 to the other team and then, incredibly, my other teammate left! I thought to myself, 'well I'll look (and possible be) amazing if I win now'.

I found a Sniper Rifle and went to work. As the other team still had all their players, there were plenty of chances to snipe, whether they were in Ghosts or buildings or whatever.

Then, I ran out of sniper ammo. I decided to try and get closer and hope that they would attack me one by one. They did! I moved through the main building (on Zanzibar) shooting and grenading and hitting and whatever. I died a couple of times, but not enough to let their score get too far ahead of mine.

I heard the announcer say "30 seconds remaining" and I was one kill behind. I decided to just go for it. I headed for the gate into the building and someone came out. Duel-wielding my SMG and my Plasma Rifle, he went down, but my shield was badly damaged. "10 seconds remaining", I heard from the announcer. 'A draw!' I thought. But then two more came out from the gate...

I hurled a grenade between the two of them, and dual wielded them down, just before my Plasma Rifle overheated.

The fourth player blew me up just after the "Game Over" announcement.

Final Score: 23-21 to us (me). Yus!

I once hijacked a Banshee on Ascension, had the previous occupant hijack it back because I never boosted away fast enough and then, just as I started plummeting to my death, I managed to hijack it back again. Three hijacks in ten seconds. Oh yes.

Tis True.

(Remove Spaces)

I stood on a pillar in the base on Zanzibar throwing sticky grenades and normal grenades at the defending team. The defenders nicked one of our ghosts so I stuck a grenade on it and watched him fly around the room trying to shake it off.
Thanks to proximity talk I could hear the yanks screaming.

I think the best thing I ever did was jump off a cliff lunge at a Banshee and board it sending the previous ocupant (sp?) flying towards death.

Fiction?! Fiction, you say?!

I promise you, it happened. I got it all set up this morning and have just been playing Team Slayer all day. I'm getting better.

I'll add you to my friends list Biggles (my gamertag = Salted Sadness) and I will hopefully be able to aid you in your attempts to destroy the Yanks.

Oh, and I just want to say thankyou, because your FAQ and general help with LIVE that you offer is the reason why I just had the best gaming day of my life.

Thankee muchee.

Great fiction.

If it's true, I need you for future use. There are a bunch of nasty Americans that keep beating me.
