I noticed Oki's sarcastic challenge... and you know, I love playing as a solo thief and I think I'm fairly good at it.

Now I don't pretend to be an awesome thief thats going to "pwn joo" cause I'm "1337"

I do however think I can take a team of guards, I mean... I have before... while I'm on the last thief life. The question remains, can I do it against an organized guard team whos ready for me? Lets find out.

I want to challenge a guild to a match on Aquatone. I'll solo thief it and you can man the guard team however you see fit.

TCO is a bunch of good guys, I'll humbly extend the challenge to you first. What do you say guys?

It cannot be done. Unless you are 1337 Neo The One, you will just die and die and die against a bunch of human guards. Sorry, but I really dont think anyone will step up to the challenge (if thats what you can call it.... i'd say massacre)

Not true. MasterThief3 had a solo match against CTG (or at least 4 of us) once a while back, on Grange. While he lost, it was hardly a massacre. We never killed him once, winning on time, rather than elimination.

Grank had a solo match against KYO by himself, on DE. He lost that one, dying, I think, only once, and losing on time. If he'd had the extra five minutes he'd requested for the match, there's a good chance he could have won.

I think it can be done. It will require a long time limit though. I don't require that every guard spot be filled, I leave that up to the guild I oppose.

Seriously though... I remember when 1.3 first came out... I wondered into the TCO server right before their practice started. It was aquatone, and I thieved. All the other thieves died in the first minute of the game, leaving me with the last life to get ALL the objectives. Soon a bunch more TCO joined and jumped on the guard team. I can't remember the number... but it was somewhere around 5 or 6 guards(all TCO) vs me the lone thief.

I won.

After the game was over I had to leave so they could practice.

I've done this same kind of thing in aqua more times then I can count. The only time its been all one guild was the above example... but I feel like I've proven my salt enough to get a challenge here.

Yes Yes, LR but your talking about KYO and CTG.... 2 of the worst TUT guilds around

Against a bunch of human guard who have any sense, you will lose.

Perhaps it never occured to you that winning and losing isn't everything? Sure! I'll probably lose.... but the way I see it, I have a chance. Did you not read? I've beaten TCO in Aqua before 1 vs 5-6. It wasn't just beating them either, I only had 1 life to work with, so they didn't even kill me once.

If someone takes me up on this challenge, there might be more human guards, and they will have time to plan... yeah.

But so will I, AND I'll have several lives to work with.


The only point i'm trying to make is:

Sure the odds are against me, but I like that. Thats no reason to deny me the chance to try.

I thieved Bourgeois, without dying, against 6 human guards once. They were all good players, and the loot spawn was shit. For some reason I managed to loot everything in the level (I mean EVERYTHING), except the attic, and I only had 350. I had to get into the attic to win. It took me a long time, and a lot of sweet escapes, but I won. FixXxer watched me, and I think he'll tell you it was an incredible job of thieving. But I don't think that gives me the right to go brag about it and say, "Ooooh, I can take your guild...give it your best shot!"

Sorry, I know you probably aren't trying to be conceited, but that's all I get from these kind of posts.

The games you're the most proud of are the games where your team ghosts (or sneaks through, with one or two knock outs) through the level without anyone dying.

THOSE are the games I'm proud winning.

I don't get that from these posts at all. What I get from them is someone who wants a bigger challenge than they normally get on public servers. You know, the kind you got when you thieved Bourgeois solo.

Some of the funnest games are played with only one thief against multiple guards(ideally 3 to 4).



On a side(scroller) note, daniel need a boot in the ass, but I'll leave that up to FixXxeR.

Dragon... You couldn't be more wrong. Please read what I write. I don't claim to be able to "pwn" TCO with my "1337" skills. However if someone is going to question my chances I will certainly bring up my past victories in my defense.

I like a challenge, just as LR said. Would you rather me try and set up a match with me and a team of thieves against a solo guard, because I'd KNOW I could win.

So allow me to try and challenge myself instead of labeling me arrogant.

No where did I ever say I could beat TCO in a planned match, only that I have a chance.

Fair Enough Jarvis, lets step it down a tone though.

I think a "Master Theif" compitetion might be a good idea, but we need to know if your being serious or just arragantly saying you can 'pwn' us all. I know you havent said that you can 'pwn' us all, so I have taken your offer seriously and if anyone from any guild wishes to join me in a friendly skirmish like this, we can surely arrange it on Brodys Challenge or the TuF public.

Thanx! I've sent you a PM. All I request is a 40 minute time limit. Other than that the normal match settings stated in this forum are fine with me.

I assume, being a lieutenant in CTG, I can plan to have this on our private server... but just incase, LR... can we use the private server?

Or would TCO rather use their server?

Your private server is preferable.
