Ever since the official clan of this blog took on the Webmasters of H.B.O. for a mildly contested evening of fun, the TTL Gunslingers have been busy planning and playing in arranged challenge matches with other clans in the Haloverse. It’s been a busy and educational season of gaming. In summary, we have been getting our asses kicked around some of our favorite maps a fair amount. Our cast of opponents represent the finest in honest clans of Gamers.
I could give you the blow-by-blow, should you be interested, but there is a better way to reap those details. Like it or not, we have committed ourselves to preserving the results of these matches in living, breathing Quicktime. Our Machinima Editor In Chief, a Gunslinger known as El Burritoh, has lended his multimedia talents to the creation of a Clan Challenge playback that allows us to figure out how [and when] everything went wrong. At the same time, our opponents are welcome to watch how they got the best of the Gunslingers.
In cooperation with some of our more techno-savvy opponents, a side-by-side capture of the events of the Clan Challenges has been made available on our Clan’s Media Portal. The viewer can watch that occupants of a Warthog evading a sniper dangerous gaze in one frame, while the other frame depicts that sniper taking aim. At the same time, the audio from each team is split between channels, allowing the viewer to prioritize or mix the team chatter with a volume control balance slider.
Up next, the Gunslingers face off in a marathon challenge of 5 matches against The Winged Warriors, under the ruthless leadership of Night Rider 7. Stay tuned…
If your clan craves the finest in custom matchmaking, the ‘Tied the Leader’ Gunslingers are at the ready to fight and die for you. We could use a few willing clans in our challenge pipeline; and we have found that there is no better way to insure a good game for all involved.
