Epic Moments in PvP

edited December 2007 in MMO Extravaganza
There was a bit of QQing in my guild chat last night about how soulcrushingly boring and mineless the current WoW honor grind is and it turned into Epic PvP Story Time. Here are a couple of mine, mostly from my shaman:

Pre BC one of my favorite places for world PvP was Booty Bay. On this particular day we had just finished a ZG and I was waiting for someone to turn in the Heart of Hakkar, so I went to gank for a while. I killed a couple of lowbies who made the mistake of standing in a guard deadspot, then went out into the water, started water walking and lightning bolting anyone I could. Eventually 3 60s show up, a priest, warrior and mage. The war and mage jump into the water and start swimming after me, I think I'll be able to get away with water walking, but then the priest jumps off the end of the dock with levitate on and throws a SW:Pain on me and knocks off my water walking.

I dive under water and start swimming down and away from them, but the priest mindflays me, which lets the other two catch up. The warrior charges, then for some reason the mage sheeps me, probably thinking that I'll drown, but it gives me a bit of health back. I trinket out of the sheep and start swimming deeper, they follow and hit me some more, I Nature's Swiftness a max rank heal, pop a healing potion and turn on underwater breathing. With that they realize that they aren't going to kill me without drowning and try to head to the surface. All 3 die just under the surface of the water.



I've never been very serious about arena apart from a 3 week peroid were I did about 20 games a week with a lock, but every so often I'd find some random person to do some 2v2 with, just for whatever small amount of points we could squeeze out of it. Some awful mage that just hit 70 in my scrub guild want to 2v2 with our GM hunter who he is absolutly in love with asks if anyone has a team, I say I do and he asks if him and the hunter can join. I say sure, and invite him but when I send a tell to the hunter asking him to join he says no, that the mage sucks. I decide to try to get in enough games to get points for the week, beginning the 5 dumbest games of arena ever. My spec at the time was elemental, with about 8k hp, the mage has about 6.4k hp

Game 1: 8:30 into a 9 minute 2v2 queue mage goes afk to grab a drink, misses queue, I lose solo
Game 2: We're against hunter/rogue in blades edge, I get an EM chain lightning off on the hunter, get focus fired and between hunters pet, hunter and the rogue I can't get another cast off. They then pretty much two shot the mage. After the game we have a very nice strategy conversation

Mage: Why weren't you doing anything?
Me: Spell pushback from 3 dmg sources. Why didn't you frost nova so I could jump off the bridge and heal?
Mage: I was casting pyroblast.
Me: /headdesk

Game 3: We decide that the mage is going to sheep someone. Its MS war/holy pally. Mage sheeps the pally, who trinkets it, mage sheeps him again, pally bubbles, mage tries to sheep bubbled pally, but gets destoryed by MS war, who then kills me, while a pally with almost full mana heals him. Afterwards the mage has this to say:

Mage: WTF that pally wouldn't stay sheeped.

Game 4: Don't really remember, mage trys to sheep someone again and is perplexed when it doesn't last the 45 secs like it does in PvE
game 5: About 7 min into a 9 min queue the mage leaves to go run SV for his Kara frag. I'm solo against a rogue/rogue team. I ride around on my Kodo for about 7 min somehow managing to keep dodging them until they realize its 2v1, break stealth, sprint and gogue me, then start a 2 rogue stunlock

Leave game, teamkick mage, add to ignore list.

A later installment: Proof that warlocks are OP (and any lock that tells you otherwise is lying!)

    The story about a crap 2v2 isnt epic. It's a situation everyone has been in at one time or another, and you should have relized he sucked by the second game when he was not frost specced (casting pyroblast) PoM pyro just doesnt work in a 2v2 as it should in a 3v3. And the little shot at the end at locks isn't really true about them being OP. Locks are easy dead if you just have a priest on the team, which is what you should have had instead of a crap mage, where as you should have gone enhancment. Shamens may be good healers in pve, but for 2v2 and 3v3 that job should be left to the priest so the team has a means of keeping DoT's and pally bubbles from happening.

    Ok, here's a story from my pirate days of lowsec.

    We have an active war declaration against a nearby corporation of a decent size, and we've been getting several even matched fights. We form up one afternoon, when our fleet commander tells us we're going on a joint up, with us, Sanguine Legion pairing up with several battleships from The Black Rabbits. We start off and bait a few ships, and take down a couple cruisers with no losses. Finally the hostiles start showing up and take the field at a stargate. We get a safespot off the gate by 10,000km, not really caring if they decide to use a covops and scan us out, we just want a rally point to gain force.

    Things go into a lull for several minutes, when Black Rabbits start showing up in local, and we're given the order to take the gate. We warp in, the hostiles jump through. We wait for everyone to enter, and we jump in behind them. What follows is the longest running engagement I've ever been in.

    Jumping in, we open fire, my ewar ship choosing the largest ship to try jamming. We lock down a couple battleships, call primaries and take them down, with the rest of their gang warping out to the next gate, falling back towards the direction of their station.

    Again, we give chase, they jump out and we follow. Repeat what just happened, only this time our scout informs us that there's reinforcements, atleast several ready combat ships, a mixed group of cruisers to battleships in the system behind them, with pods going back to their station and trickling back in with ready ships. We say screw it, push forwards until they're wiped.

    The next system we go through, we catch one of them while the rest fall back to the final stargate before their station system. We assemble, and jump in with a dozen of us as a few more of our guys log on, another dozen or so rabbits, and more than equal numbers on the opposing side. We come out of warp in one fleet, call primaries and I begin jamming once more. This time the battle is less organised, and both of our sides have lost the tackling ships, which means battleships and cruisers are constantly warping in and out from the gate, to planets and asteroid belts. At one point the fight moves off the gate and over a planet.

    We're downing more than we're losing, but they've begun bringing out their heavier ships, and while their station is one jump behind them, the legion is several jumps, and the rabbits are over 20 or so jumps from their own territory. We make the best of it, and our guys that get blown apart are making their best speed back in to help us. By the end of it, both our sides are heavily lacking in numbers, but manage to push them back to the other side of the gate, and for the first time we enter their home system.

    And the fighting begins anew as they bring out another several ships to fight us off, to a bit more success this time as they retreat to a control tower. By now over 3/4 of the rabbits have been downed, and the others are more reluctact to jump in as we've all taken heavy losses, and we agree it's best we salvage whatever we can, and get out where we can reinforce. We get jittery as their numbers continue to rise, and we loot several wrecks as quickly as we can, then move back to our side of the gate and continue picking up what we can to cover our losses.

    It's hard to describe, and this was nearly a year ago. The size of it is paltry compared to what we've been doing now in 0.0 space. Even a month later in the Stain region I was in daily fighting that was double the size of this, where I would be primaried repeatedly by several hostiles or even their carrier support at one point, but I'll never forget how fun this fight was because like I said, not since this fight have I ever been in a running engagement that lasted across several systems, asteroid belts and planets.

    Someone should tell the epic tale of the battle for 66-, or 9-9. Now those were some fun fight, it's not often you get to warp out while your battleship is on fire with 0 shields, 0 armour and 15% hull left.

    66-699_ships-1.jpg

    I mean, they wiped out one entire goon fleet of 200+ ships, and we came back with even more numbers within 15 minutes.

    When I played Star Wars Galaxies, we had several multi-day campaigns against opposing Rebel guilds.

    I think in a span of 3 weeks there were about 4-5 major battles where major battles == about 200+ players.

    You know

    Back when SWG as passable as a PVP game.

    Really, all the most fun I had in WoW's PvP was leveling up on a PvP server. That shit gets personal. You don't build fierce grudges like that facing random teams in instances.

    Eye of the Storm. Horde at 1850, Alliance with 1800ish, Alliance has three towers. If the horde caps again we lose.

    So I toss on my tank gear, mount, Crusader aura, and run the hell out to the flag, where I toss up my porcupine buff set - retribution aura, blessing of sanctuary, holy shield, swap in a shield with a spike on it. And I control that flag for, I dunno, five minutes, however long it takes to tick 200 points with 3 towers but it felt forever long. Consecrate every time the cooldown's up. Stunlocked? Can't be crit, so I ride it out until I've got about 200 HP left and bubble before dropping a consecrate and having three healers mend me back to full. Get low again, and my healers are nowhere to be found, so I blow Lay on Hands and heal to full.

    I finally die, and horde (naturally) immediately grabs the flag. They're running back towards the Blood Elf tower, running up the hill, and the game ends. Alliance victory. I was so happy.

    Of course we lost the next five games, but that's par for the course, so.

    This is nowhere near epic, but last night in STV at the hunters camp, myself (35 rogue) and two others were dueling each other (36 and 35 rogue). For some reason we were all flagged. During a point of no duel we three were just sitting around when a Gnome mage runs up, flags Ice Nova, blink and starts running. All 3 of us immediately hit vanish, unvanish spring, and caught up. I've never seen a gnome die faster.

    You probably could have capped it at one point with 3 spots held and won the game.

    I played on Khadgar US for a bit with a shaman alt, back when the BGs had recently started and the entry points were still only in the actual zones, which made for a lot of world PVP in the Barrens/Ashenvale. After one particularly bad defence of Crossroads (a dozen-15 nubs vs half a dozen 60s) we just gave up and formed the Barrens All Star Dancing and Boxing Troupe which defended the Barrens from the evil Alliance through fancy moves, choreographed routines and staying power. In between the dance offs we had Tauren boxing exhibitions for the assembled nubs and evil ganking Alliance. At the height of our glory we had 6 dancing wolves, which iirc managed to slow down the ganking.

    Well uh, there was that time the PAA conducted a 900+ member coordinated assault that slaughtered 17 Horde cities and outposts, three racial leaders, and the entire Eastern Kingdom server.

    On a more personal level, there was one AV among hundreds along my honor grind to Commander that I knew I was doing something right. Somehow my healer buddy and I held Iceblood Tower and Graveyard against two fully-geared Warlords and a BWL-equipped rogue before riding down and tanking Drek'Thar.

    My prot paladin joined a WSG at lvl 45 IIRC, when I joined each side had capped once, and it was a big fucking turtle fest. At the end of it, I was leader in both damage and healing. It made me feel good.

    But to be honest, everyone sucked and 8/10 team members on both sided did nothing but turtle. :\

    an epic moment from early last week.

    The Stage: Arathi Basin
    The Players: my guilds main tank (in prot), a pvp resto druid guildie and myself, an insanely geared holy pally.

    We run straight for stables, and for the next 20 minutes fight off 8-15 alliance. It was like the tank had a tractor beam or something, allies just swarmed to him. Trying, and trying, and trying, and dying.

    They completely ignored all the other flags, they had to kill the warrior.

    86 HKs and a 4 cap later, horde won. Our team was #1 HKs, #1 damage and #1 & 2 on heals.

    2v2 arenas with a Warrior friend the other day. I'm a Paladin with just about everything out of Kara and maybe 120 Resilience, he's in blues and greens. Between his abysmal life pool and my being an absolute fuckup at PvP healing, he goes down inside of 20 seconds half the time. We enter our fourth game with a 1-2 record, and I proceed to fail miserably once again. So I Divine Favor Holy Shock and JoRighteousness the Shaman, whom the Warrior had managed to get down to about 60%, then stun his heal and finish him off with a Hammer of Wrath and a few swings. The hunter is dumb enough to leave his pet on me while I simultaneously dps it down with Seal of Vengeance and LoS him with a pillar. We keep on running in circles for another 30 seconds while I regen mana, then I Blessing of Freedom, bubble out of his trap, and proceed to beat him down, as well.

    It felt good after sucking so much, even if they were pretty bad themselves.

    Neither the whole of truth nor the whole of good is revealed to any single observer, although each observer gains a partial superiority of insight from the peculiar position in which he stands. It is enough to ask of each of us that he should be faithful to his own opportunities and make the most of his own blessings, without presuming to regulate the rest of the vast field.

    I would re-tell the story about where I took on 3 level 70's doing the escort in Skettis all by myself, but I can't find it and don't feel like retyping it.

    It was cool though, just take my word for it.

    Edit: OH HAI GUYZ I FOUND IT

    Happiest moment in my entire WoW career: I'm out in Skettis, trying to get my Daily done before my guild PvP group re-queues for BG fun. So i'm bombing eggs out there, and at the first stop (closest to the camp) I see the escort guy, surrounded by 3 level 70 Alliance. Hunter, Paladin, Druid.

    So I figure I'll just chill on the outskirts and watch the escort, then zoom around looking for his respawn, as I sit there watching, the Druid decides to Moonfire me.

    At that point i'm like whatever bitch, I'm going to die doing it but i'm going to make this escort as hard as possible for all of you now, you could have left me alone and everything would have been fine, but now I'm just going to be a dick.

    So 2 Guards always spawn at the end of the first bridge you cross, so I fly over and stealth behind the side there and wait for the spawn. They Spawn, I sprint in and follow them, cheapshot the Druid, throw up Adrenaline Rush, Blade Flurry, get another Hemo in and then kidney shot her, the Hunter is right next to the druid, so all my hits are hurting her as well. I down the Druid in about 3 more Hemo's and an Arcane torrent, and then turn my attention on the Hunter.

    At this point i'm thinking, okay i'm fucked, paladin is going to heal the hunter as he kites me around, I already burned sprint, but whatever. So I focus on the Hunter, bam, dead in seconds, he didn't even try and get away or bring his pet out. I then vanish, cheapshot the Paladin, Hemo, Kidney Shot, throw up Prep and Adrenaline rush again.

    The Paladin just stood there, I don't know if he was stunned or stupid or just panicking, but he didn't even bubble, so he went down shortly after.

    Three Alliance down and I still had about 70% of my health left, I couldn't believe it. Icing on the cake was that the escort guy respawned immediately in the same spot, so I talked to him, walked him through the entire thing and completed the escort in a few minutes without any interference.

    Most of this was due to the fact they had to be absolutely horrible players, but still, taking down 3 people like that felt so good.

    There was one time in WoW, myself ( a 70 Paladin), and a couple of friends (a 70 mage and a 70 warrior) decided to sneak into the Undercity through the bat flier entrance. Just the three of us. We worked our way through the passage ways and jumped into the green river that the tunnel empties out into. We've killed a few of the abomination guards, so the alarm has obviously rung. But for some reason, we don't run into anybody right away. So we start heading towards the center of the city. Kill a few npcs and the spawned guards. Then we run into a couple of low level players who we quickly wipe out. At this point, since we're taking our time, we've been inside the Undercity (and outside of that flight passage) for about 20 minutes. So we get bold and head towards the bankers. And we start killing the bankers. We start with the bankers that aren't too crowded, or are surrounded by low level players. Then we decide to attack the bankers that are surrounded by a couple of 70s.

    Oops.

    The banker dies, and then this 70 tauren warrior turns around. And he just kinda looks at us. And then all hell breaks loose and he is joined by his rather pissed off guildmates. The three of us are then surrounded by about 20 horde guys from the same guild, and we just get butchered. Managed to take a couple down with us, but that was about it.



    Another time, my guild got together about 10 people and decided to raid Thunder Bluff. Took the elevator up, then proceeded to wipe out every banker, merchant, and trainer before deciding to attack the battlemasters. That proved to be our undoing since we got mobbed by a ridiculous amount of guards and players.


    But my favorite PvP story....it was right after they added that ogre encampment above Shattrath. I had just hit 70 and had gotten my flying mount, so I decided to check it out. Flew up there with my Paladin. Started doing the quests. Unfortunately the place was crawling with Horde, Horde who would only attack you when you were getting beat on by two or more mobs. Well, I managed to finish one of the quests and was gonna head back down to Shatt when this priest and his warrior buddy decide to attack me. At first I start to fight back, but end up aggroing the wandering elite ogre that was up there. Not good.

    So I book it. I decide my best option, if I want to survive, is to get to the cliff. Cuz I haven't popped my bubble yet, so I can jump and get away. So I'm running to the cliff edge, with this priest and warrior in hot pursuit. I get to the edge, pause a moment to look down. Its a loooooong fall. I jump. Land several hundred feet down. I can just barely see the the edge that I jumped from. Then all of a sudden I see the warrior jump off the edge after me. And it takes him a long time to fall. Long enough for me to start to think:

    "What does he think he's doing?"

    Which is followed shortly thereafter by "splat", as the warrior hits the ground right beside me and dies instantly. His priest buddy is standing at the top of the cliff looking down. I thought about going back up to attack, but I was laughing so hard I couldn't concentrate. So I mount up and fly a little ways off the ground so I can mock the warrior endlessly. Oh man, that was great.

    oh man, falling off cliffs to doom is fucking hilarious shit

    I remember jumping off the cliff in AB, and not one but two warriors intercept me as I fall

    I bubble and land, one dies from the fall and one is at 10% HP

    what was even better was when I was on my warrior and that didn't kill me so I would use a pot run back up and kill the preist.



    edit but my fave moment way back before they fixed the Warrior Sword spec/sword trinket thing. Was when I was in a WSG match I just killed a Lock and was at 50% and a shammy in full tier 2 (I was in partail tier 1 with The Untamed Blade) started on me. I swung about 6 times and missed every swing. I was down to about 2% health when my sword spec and the sword trinket thing ( I can't remember what it was called but it gave you a extra 2% chance for an extra swing) both hit off of each other hitting him about 6-7 times in one swing. This brought him down to less then 20% health and me up to full rage. That was defently my cheapest but coolest kill ever.

    back in january about a month into my EvE career I was puttering arround a lowsec system in my brand spanking new myrmidon, I'd just gotten to where I could fit it and I had a salvager 2x med nos a couple of light blasters cause I didn't know any better, MWD stasis web warp scram and a supertank fitted. pretty neat ship for a complete newbie, in total worth about 50m ISK.

    So I'm going from belt to belt, killing battlecruiser rats to test the things DPS, when a cruiser warps into the belt and starts targeting. I'd had a couple of fights in this ship already, having seen off a vexor who didn't know what was good for him, and a caracal that jammed the hell out of me and ran when he couldn't get rid of my drones. So I start targeting this Amarr cruiser and aproaching with MWD. He opens fire, and starts hitting me, hard. It is at this point that I realize I'm not going up against any old cruiser, it's a zealot class heavy assault cruiser, for comparison's sake, this ship is worth 150-200m compared to my myrmidon which as I said is about 50m.

    I think to get the hell out, but he's jamming my warpdrive so no go, so rather than just wait to die, I wade in and start hitting him with my nosfaratu's draining his energy to feed my armor repair systems which are working overdrive and still failing to hold against this thing's whithering firepower.

    At this point I know I'm going to die, but I'm going to give him a run for his money anyway, then a miracle, his lasers go dead, his tank starts to fail, I realize he's out of capacitor, my nosfaratus have depleted his energy entirely and he's dead in the water, it takes about a minute and a half for my drones to beat him to death. I made enough off of that poor bastard to pay for a whole 'nother ship.

    also a good Illustration of the thing I love most about EvE, a 1+ year old char in a ship worth three to four times as much, can still get his ass whooped by a 2m old newbie with a good head on his shoulders.

    Man, EvE PVP stories make everyone elses' look like such lameness

    Anyways, here's mine. (CoX)

    I was hanging out in Bloody Bay on my Thugs/Dark MM, talking with two Hero friends.

    This Tanker just walks up to us and starts trying to beat me up. Needless to say, I quickly dispose of him and he barely scratches me.

    Friends and I continue talking.


    Tanker runs in AGAIN and gets shot by me.

    Rinse, wash, repeat. I issue the occasional "Man, why the hell are you even trying" taunt.

    During the same incident, a friend and I exchanged shots with "OH! There's a fly on you!" "Uh sorry I missed"

    And a fucking epic 5 on 1. Three of my foes defeated, 2 of them forced to flee.

    Hearing shit like that makes me want to try Eve out.

    Is there a free download trial thing somewhere?

    There's a 15 day trial if I remember correctly.

    I might have to go ahead and subscribe. I tried the trial for a short time, but I didn't get into it much. After reading an EVE thread and this one I really want to try it out some more.

    Yeah, not enough EVE stuff

    It was during the opening days of the Great War against BOB. I remember it so clearly because essentially every weekend there were literally hundreds of players pounding any specific system.

    The one I will always specifically remember was when I was with Pandemic Legion and we went out with the goons to take JV1V from the LV alliance.

    We lost contact with goon leadership, and a followed a group of 100 goons to the JV gate, then proceeded to jump in. We got ripped apart before the grid even loaded (six+ bubbles on the gates, snipers in full 360 degree positions, dead end system)

    We later learned that we had jumped in with the suicide fleet that was meant to probe their defensive abilities. Heh


    Before that, when we were forming up, we had about 900 people on a single Goon station. It was amazing watching blobs of ships warping in and just continuing to collect into this larger mother-blob of every type of ship imaginable.

    I had FRAPs of it all but lost it on a comp format :( Will never forgive myself for that

    My lone PvP story.

    Shimmering flats. I'm a nelf warrior. 2 levels away from my first fear immune ability. I'm doing my circut, when a belf lock jumps me , fears, dots me up, and I die.

    Oookay. Lock attempts to camp me. I rez, run, eat, run back, find her at the same spot she was trying to camp me. Charge hammy rend heroic strike slam execute dead.

    I go back about my buisness.

    I spot the lock about ten minutes later. I decided to let bygons be bygons and just /wave and run past, in plain sight. Of course, she looks at me, and then starts to make a move towards me. But she forgot one thing.

    She forgot to target me.

    Shadowmeld.

    I dissapear from sight. Bewildered that a warrior in full mail gear carrying a ginormus axe just fucking dissapeared mid stride, she moves towards my last known location(where I still was) to attempt to find me.

    Plan Success.


    Charge hammy rend(feared)intercept heroic strike execute dead.

    Twas the greatest PvP kill I ever had.

    Well uh, there was that time the PAA conducted a 900+ member coordinated assault that slaughtered 17 Horde cities and outposts, three racial leaders, and the entire Eastern Kingdom server.

    :shock:

    .....that's how PvP *should* be. I hope Warhammer Online is mearly 25% as cool as that must have been.

    The battle of F-R[or something or other]. Where in the goon + Friends lost 50+ capital ships destroying the wrong station. There were 700 in system, with another 2000 trying to get in.

    Unfortunatly the server melted, you couldnt do anything within 3 jumps of the fight.

    edit: every combat in eve feels pretty Epic. I remember the first time I FC'd. Ran our slightly larger but really terribly fit gang into another hostile gang.

    Our scout gets wind of a small tri-gang a jump ahead and i order us to hold on the gate and get ready to jump through into them. But they jump into us instead. Our dictor drops a bubble and the waiting starts. They decloak and descend from 15km out and i start calling primaries[in text!]. I call their two harbingers[battlecruiser] primary first and they call our command ship. The first battlecruiser goes down and then we change to the second, our command ship is still holding strong, slowly failing. The second harbinger drops speedily and the tank on our CS goes from "failing" to "holding" and they change targets to one of our battlecruisers whom they kill fairly easily. We then move between the last of the two battlecruisers[brutixes], and then clean up their command ship. Total kills, 4 battlecruisers, 1 command ship. Total losses, 1 battlecruiser.

    One of the more memorable fights for me because i was commanding. But stuff like this happens every day.

    E.G. the other day we are running a cruiser gang in fix space, we get a raven on a gate but cant break its tank, so we disengage and move on. We run into that same raven when some friendlies have points and as we get on the gate and engage. Two enemy interceptors get in, and we start to get points. I burn towards the crow and he burns away from my crusader[an interceptor]. When im 30km out, i overload my mwd and my 7.3km/s inty becomes a 10.9km/s inty, nearly twice as fast as his crow. Ive got points and he is still running while i keep him at a good range the second hostile inty, which if it gets within about 10-13km from me will kill me[my engagement range is 10km]. Moves away from the gate to get a warp in on the friendly crow[since he also seems to be slower than me] to kill me. We are moving father off the gate and the raven deaggress's so it can jump through and run. Finnaly the crow dies and i start to loot the wreck. The second inty decides it doesnt want to engage me when friendlies can warp to me and bails. The raven jumps and i immediatly warp back to the gate and jump through. It decloaks to try and warp and i have points. It aggresses to get me off of it and but i hold my point for 30 seconds and the rest of the gang jumps through and finishes the job

    Every Monday this summer I went to a bar near my house for free pool, dollar wells and draws night. One monday after closing the bar down I come home and realize that I still hadn't done my 10 2v2 games for the week, but lucky for me my 2v2 partner, and afflic lock is on. He agrees to get our games in and I queue us up. The queues were about 5 minutes, compared to the less than 1 min queues we were used to.

    The first game is against Boomkin/BM Hunter. I'm too drunk to play right at all, we lose. Queue, wait 5 min, lose to warrior pally. Queue, then remember nothing until I wake up on the floor next to my desk the next morning.

    Log in to see how much damage we did to our rating and our record for last week is 1-2. The lock logs on and wants to know what happened, I tell him and then ask about the win.

    "You remember that warrior/pally team we lost to the 2nd game? I soloed them."
