    Bungie's weekly humpday challenge read like any other this week. Boring, trite and full of useless text. But maybe not. Take a look at the game stats:


    Game 1: Team Slayer
    Valhalla, normal weapons
    Game Duration: 10:00
    General Tone of Game: Lead-changy

    Score: 50 – 47. Community Team wins.

    If they scored 50, how did the game last the entire 10 minutes?


    Game 2: Team Slayer
    High Ground, normal weapons
    Game Duration: 1:17
    General Tone of Game: Hijinks

    Score: 50 – 37. Multiplayer Team wins.

    87 total kills in 1 minute and 17 seconds???


    Game 3: Team Slayer
    Snowbound, normal weapons
    Game Duration: 8:9:85
    General Tone of Game: Desperation

    What kind of time is that?


    Maybe it's nothing. Maybe it's something. Any ideas?

    Yeah when I read this the other day the last 2 game times did strike me as odd. The first I didn't even think about.

    If they kept the scoring system form Halo, the 2nd game is easily possable. Points for kills can rake up fast on a small map with more than 2 vs 2.
