I don't do dancing, mostly because I got no rhythm, but I am one for singing, all be-it-badly and mostly off key, but y'know, I enjoy it, nothing better than singing along to your favourite tracks. I spend a good portion of my day listening to music, so y'know, it's safe to say I'm singing alot. I spare people the earache though and turn off my mic. I'm not the type to go on Live and then sing at the top of my lungs to some obscure track that I barely know the words to and make a fool of myself. That's always the worst... ending up in a room with a random clown who can't sing and can't play and then thinks he's got a gift. But on the flip side, there are worse people you can bump into on Live, the 10year old with the mouth of a sailor anyone? He was totally Gangsta...
So, yesterday I set up myself an account with GameBattles.com. Heard someone mentioning it in a room on COD a week or so ago and figured I'd check it out. Looked around, initially wasn't interested, then I found the league tables if you will, the ladders. Found that you could make a team and set yourself up to show the world (or EU as it would be for us) just what you're made off. Was a little confusing at first and I ended up creating my team on the wrong Ladder, so had to delete it and start again, but then it wouldn't let me use my previous team name, even though it wasn't taken (though it said it was, but I searched for it and there was nothing). So I had to create a new team with a new name for the Double Team games on COD4.
Now, if you've played with me on COD4 then you'll know doubt have noticed that my Clan Tag, is "iWiN" It used to be iWIN, but it was missing something, that flare, so I changed it to "iWiN" and it was magical, fitted me like a glove, mostly because most of the games I played, I litterally WIN at. So what better name to use for my clan than that? Well as I said, I messed up and had to change it, so I came up with iWiN (08), a slight expansion of my original name, but it makes a big difference, in that I don't really like it.
Anyways, I ended up setting both my and my little brother and account up, created my clan at 5am this morning, invited Jake, accepted for him and proceeded to play the waiting game. That would be the waiting of 12hours to pass before you become eligable to play against rival clans. That time came at 5:30pm, and we were quick to jump into a game, after reading carefully the terms and conditions of the game of course.
6:15pm we hit the first game, two guys from elsewhere in the EU. With that I mean not English, nice guys though, spoke english well. We set the game up, played and lost, over in 15minutes. Sabotage was the game type and we just weren't prepared it would seem. To be fair, the game did come as a shock to us as we didn't realise we'd even accepted it until a few minutes before. We got in, played, lost, left and gave the scores to the site.
7:30pm and we were ready for our second game, something a little more down our alley. Search And Destroy, my favourite game type don't ya know? We started on CrossFire. Losing, 3-0, pulled together and won 3straight putting is square. Last round, I armed the bomb, they were nowhere to be seen, we waiting, they killed Jake, I was hiding on the bus, watching, thought I saw one, popped out, got killed. Literally JUST enough time to disarm the bomb, we thought we had it... but nope, they did it. 0.03 seconds on the clock, luckys $%&"*£"
They acknowledge it was luck, moved on to the second map, Overgrown. Personal favourite of mine and Jakes. We lose the first round, and the second, we take the third, fourth and firth quickly. We're up 3-2, we lose one, again 3-3 and riding on the last round. We have the bomb armed, timer counting down, we see one shooting us from the little barn, we shoot back he runs and hides in the crops, I go to find him, manage to get behind him and knife him. Jake is in the house gaurding the bomb, I kneel and watch it, Jake is killed and the guy runs out to disarm the bomb, I sprint across the field at him, manage to knife him before he disarms it and we win the round and the game.
Third Map, Backlot, 1-1 in games, both evenly played, barely winning and losing by a mere second. First round, Jake is killed by a random Grenade, I kill one, but am shot down by the next. Second round, again, Jake is killed quickly, I manage to get upside one and unload my MP5 in his face, seeing the other guy in the process and finishing him off as he tries to escape. Third round and we take it quickly, neither of us dead. The fourth round and my random grenade takes one out, and I come head to head with the other luckily killing him with the last bullet in my magazine. The first and final round, Jake kills one, I arm the bomb at A. We position ourselves to gaurd it, me behind the wall, Jake at another watching the other entrance, claymores laid. Grenades are unleashed on us, don't do a thing, a distraction, he comes through the back, right where I'm at, he shoots at Jake who is hiding behind a small bit of wall, I turn out the door way and keep firing, killing him before he's had a chance to kill Jake.
We Win! 2games to 1. We congratulate the team, and report our results to the website. Gaining enough points to place us 101st on the scoreboards and at Level 2 in personal scoring. Magnificent. I think it's a great way to play the game, adds more excitement to the game when you're playing with people who really know how to play and want to win, especially when there are things at stake.
Next weekend we're going to hit as many other clans as we can, increase our points and experience and get to the top few on the scoreboard, though we know we got a long long way to go.
Anyways that's all I got for y'all. Yesterdays Topic? Didn't bother with it because y'all know I aint' watching no sports, no Olympics, no nothing.
