    I'll be on after midnight tonight.
    Looks like I'll get no sleep tomorrow night, either.

    Believe.

    Bungie seriously needs to add Infection to one of the playlists. If anyone from here plays that day can you please save the map variants so we can run around in them this thursday??

    I had time to sneak in two games before work. I have never played with so many happy people. Both games the other players wouldn’t shut up about how cool everything was. I have saved the two new map variants and game type I have seen so far.

    I wish I had a similar experience.
    Many asshats ruining fun for everyone.

    I was perched on top of a tower in High Ground and was just about to line up two zombies in my sights when the loser behind me pushed me off.

    But that was not nearly as bad as the game before when the King of Asshats (his gamertag is Detha) betrayed everyone the whole game. His score at the end was -12.

    Yeah, I've had a lot of betrayals today. It's getting kind of frustrating. And I've noticed two types of groups playing today as well. People who think that this is "ghey" and don't get why they did it, and those who are totally into the new game types. Been having a lot more fun with the latter group.

    It sounds like fun. Maybe they'll decide to keep it later on.

    I would like to them to keep the game type, but change some of the rules and maps. I have found that it's better to be on the zombie side at the beginning otherwise I end the round with only one or two kills.

    I think it's just me, but I got mad lag while playing that. Not only that, the starting weapon set is mediocre (Shotgun okay, Spartan Laser WTF?) and the fact we couldn't pick up anything was pure shit. What if I wanted a sword instead of my shotgun, or perhaps a sniper rifle if any existed on the maps? Nope. Why we can't just get a starting weapon as the AR and let us pick up other guns is beyond me. A Bubble Shield would have been nice sometimes, and the Flare might have had some use for once. I probably could have done better with a sniper and a sword than shotgun/laser.

    I fear what they'll do for Xmas.

    Yeah I thought the same thing.

    Like in save on bullet I had run out of charge on my laser. The dude in front of me died but I got the zombie that tagged him.

    However, I coouldn't pick up his fully charged laser.
    Why?
    Because the game said I can't.
