D0715 T2212 Y2007Open Letter to our Challengers


Thanks for kicking our asses. No, really. Upholding your Roman tradition, you came, you saw, and you conquered. Veni, Vidi, Vici, indeed!

It was a good time. The Gunslingers are not above a solid thrashing. Truth be told, it was refreshing. Steamrolling over unranked, mismatched opponents in Big Team Battles had made us soft. We needed a fierce wake up call, and you rang our bells. You reminded us of how a formidable opponent plays. We were thrilled to simply have you all stay in the game to the end. That was real nice, for a change. Conceding to you the win – again and again – was a small price to pay for good games against good gamers.

We posted a recap, so everyone who came to check out the Gunslingers would know that you sent us running for cover with our hats on our backs. The closest we could come to holding our own against you that night was to Tie a match on Coagulation. I know what you are thinking: “A tie on Coag?” Believe it, people! Otherwise, you outslayed us, controlled that hill, and blew our base to kingdom come. Cheers.

Win, Lose, or Tie, we were grateful to answer your challenge. It is, after all, our favorite way to game. Matchmaking rarely sends us people with character of your caliber with whom to butt heads. We’ll be seeing you. Check your six!

8Bit Brigaders!

Thanks for the rematch. We like you cats. It’s not just because we seem to win when we play.

Don’t get me wrong. Winning is fun, but its not why the TTL Gunslingers are in business. We wanted to seek out the finest citizens of the Halo Nation – and kill them.

A challenge issued by the 8Bit Brigade is a sure thing in a world full of unsafe bets. It’s a good time had by all. Always. We learn a few things about honor and sportsmanship every time we game with you. You are gentlemen – just the sort of digital sportsmen that we hoped to lure to our forum when we built it.

We posted a recap of our matches with you as well. It’s not up there to glorify the scoreboard, but rather to let everyone know where to go calling in search of a good game – after they have challenged us, of course!

The TTL Gunslingers can only hope that this sort of action will keep rocking steady until late September. With a whole staff of Challenge Captains within our ranks, we can only wonder who else is out there – still playing the game as a team. Our doors are still open to the gamers who continue to call Halo 2 their battleground of choice.

Is there anyone else? Tied the Leader is calling you out, one final time. In the twilight days of Halo 2, we need to stick together – now more than ever. Please consult our forum for all of your gaming needs! Suit up and throw down your gauntlet.

    I was lucky enough to participate in both of these challenges, and I can’t say enough great things about the two communities mentioned above…Outstanding communities with outstanding sportsmen who bring an outstanding game.

    I was fortunate enough to play in the 8BB challenge, and want to echo the statements of appreciation made. 8BB is right at the top of my list of friends to game with. They have the best collective attitude/approach to the game – it’s a game, and therefore meant to be fun – which it always is with them!

    I’ve heard such good things about PG that 8BB might have to check them out sometime.

    It’s all about fun and meeting new and interesting people.
