Though the numbers were fewer, no doubt due to the public holiday revelry, the spirits and competition were still high of those Gears players who did join in for El33tonline’s Gears of War Wednesday action.
The evening started with a casual round of Team Deathmatch, with us against the bots, but we soon learned that you should never underestimate bots. Things started to gather momentum as other players joined and the competition began to heat up considerably.
We continued with Team Deathmatch as the hours ticked by, and despite a few lag problems initially, we played a number of hassle-free rounds that came down to the wire. Most of us were reluctant to call it a night, with cries of ‘One more round’ sounding more than once!
Thanks to everybody for joining in last night, we hope to see you online next week! My deputy, Oliver, couldn’t join due to Xbox LIVE connection problems, so I was madly scribbling down names in between re-loading my Gnasher Shotgun and avoiding frag grenades - please let me know if I spelled your Gamertag incorrectly or left you off the list of players which follows below:
