    Adventures in Ubermode

    Had the most fun ever unlocking uber mode for every map today on the six clan server. Some great moment like Sniper frantically fighting off aliens with a flamethrower to last the 2 minutes alone on salvage (he pulled it off too in some of the best playering I have ever seen) and a mad dash through the barracks. Angel did a miracle dash through the hive in observation with no stims.

    One thing we learned is stims hurt your time. If you use a stim the clock at the end will not match the mission clock. So each stim is effectively adding 10 seconds to your time. While a single stim isn't bad it really adds up fast. Thus you run through most of the maps without stims. I think this is a bug.

    On rescue if 2 people hit the lift at the same time it goes down in turbo mode. However if anyone dies or too many people hit it the lift tends to get stuck and you can't get off the elevator.

    Research is tricky and has to be done by marines splitting up into teams. One team to get the lasers down, then 2 teams of egg hunters. Once you are down to 9 eggs you regroup at the lasers and move fast to finish the mission.

    Time to Beat to unlock ubermode:
    Rescue-4:50
    Salvage-6:00
    Observation-5:30
    Research-2:30
    Barracks-2:30 (I think)
    Uplink-maybe 3:30, very foggy on this one
    Research-can't remember

    Overall it was a riot and brought out some of the best alienswarm playing I have ever seen. It is a blast trying to make best time on these levels.

    Yeah it was some of the best games ever a mad dash every time. Sniper at the end of Salvage was hilarious. Did you do Observation then, the server messed up for me and I couldn't connect. I think Angel is trying to sort it now...

    Yeah, we got observation in 1:47. We left a marine behind because we thought the time would be something like 3 minutes and realized when we saw it was 5:30 we could of pulled it off the normal way.

    i was only there for observation and I still dont beleive how I ran through the hive alone with crash and not shooting a single alien
    It worked though and I am proud of everyone for the great teamwork you showed!
    I am working on getting a 2nd server now for more fun

    Note: Snipr really is one major badass...Whatever char we take we just go point and massacre :]

    Stratigies to play the game under following mode:

    Easy: use the FORCE, you don't need to see to play the game
    Normal: use your ear and some brain, parasite might hurt
    Hard: easy if you have stratigies, aliens are still killable
    Insane: you definately need some good teammate, the ones you can depend on

    DIFFERENT MODES:
    Insane Carnage: yeyey shotgun happy!!! frag on!!
    Insane Uber: how the hell did this clip empty out so quick???
    Insane HardCorel: Autogunner, bring a flashlight... humm wait. OMG NO aim assisstance, not even flashlight. noOoOo, it's time for u to get some skillz
    Tip 1: use sentry as a stair case
    Tip 2: walk on active mines so when alien gets near you, they burn

    The Run

    That three minutes on Salvage was some of the greatest minutes of gameplaying ever. I couldn't have done it without you guys though (GREAT teamwork with the button pushing to get me to the end ASAP). Also, the half-full medic satchel left by Bastille's corpse was invaluable, as well as the flammer ammo left by Wildcat before she went down... You know who you are! I cannot WAIT to play on those new servers, but I've got to shut my computer DOWN to get some RL work done over the next few days. Every time I come home, I can't help but log in... you know, just for a round or two... or ten.

    Yeah, that salvage run was a work of art. I have never seen anyone run that fast and live.

    We couldn't do Uplink on uber just now so no carnage mode on Uplink yet... We were on a roll, unlocked hardcore on Observation, did barracks on uber (unlocked carnage), but no Uplink.

    Killing Uplink Insane

    Yeah... We would have had it if people (... myself included) could have stayed another hour or so. We had JUST gotten into the pit and we nailed the sucker pretty hard... didn't bring the right gear to take him out though. Soon enough.

    We got so fricken sick of the newbies messing us up on Uplink that we finally had to give up after 4 hours or so and just do some other map to get our anger out. We only got to end successfully 5 times, with everyone alive. It then fell appart.
