ThrawnOmega Defeated!

The mighty ThrawnOmega, leader of the Hand of Thrawn and the Hand of Thrawn Boosting Alliance, member of the x360a Review Team, prominent Blogger, and HMFIC (HeadMuthaF*%kerInCharge) of Walmart has been beaten by yours truly.

You see Thrawn and I entered the Survivor Achievement Edition: Season 2 over on the forums. At first I entered the competition to support the community and to use it as extra motivation to score. However, immediately after I joined the gamer known as ThrawnOmega signed up and in his first posted started to trash talk.

I am very competitive by nature so I accepted his side challenge to see who could outlast the other in this community competition.

The rules were simple and straight forward. Score your ass off for 3 days, at the end of the third day the person with the highest achievement score gain wins Immunity and can not be eliminated in the next round. The person with the lowest, well they get the boot. Every 3 days this continues until there is only one gamer standing.

But what makes this "victory" a bit more rewarding is that I have spent the last 2 1/2 days of this round away from home and my 360. I had to go to Louisville, KY over the weekend to observe some Military Training. My flight arrived back home at around 1pm and I was able to get enough points in 5 hours to avoid being eliminated for this round. When I checked the update I was shocked that I wasn't eliminated but that Thrawn was.

Gears 2 laid to rest

Finally hit level 50!

No more Host Glitches!
No more Two Pieces!
No more Bridge Hosting!
No more 12 years olds!
No more Guardian!
No more Security Grinding!
No more being laughed at by Silva and Bishop!

So Im level 50 and finally hanging up my Lancer. I entertained the idea of going after level 100 and Seriously 2.0 for about a full minute before I slapped the shit out of myself for allowing such a stupid thing to cross my mind. I am in no shape or form a completionist so Ill be happy with my 1610gs and move on.

The only way I will play that game again is if I can finally get a friend or two to knock out the last Horde achievement I am missing (1-20 on Sanctuary), but if not its no big deal!

Gears 3, take your time. Im in no rush to play you.
