[GC] Ep.2 Challenge Mode

Post by doctor_oran » Fri Jan 22, 2016 11:05 am

Since my keyboard situation's been fixed, and work's gonna be slow for a bit, I'm interested in getting a group together for C-mode in Episode 2. Probably not going to be a time-attack run, just runs to get some s-ranks.

No experience in Ep.2 C-mode necessary, although I'd like it if you've finished a few stages of Ep.1 C-mode at least, if not Ep.2.

If anyone's interested, give me a time when we can meet up, and the character class you wanna use. Either post here or give me a PM. The most convenient times for me are evenings (UTC -5), sometimes afternoons too (especially on weekdays).

Team A - CLEARED! (4'15'01'' except for Ives at 4'37'45'')
  • Crystal (HUnewearl, Ives)
  • Cosine (HUcaseal, me)
  • HotteLunch (HUcast, Otto Baus)
  • delight (FOnewearl, KB)
Team 1 - finished 1 stage
  • Iron Foot (HUcast, me)
  • SKARABIS (HUcast, John Rplca)
  • AnxiousGirl (FOnewearl, Blue World)
  • Riza (RAmarl, Ives)

K.B., Relena, and I may be up for it, although I may need to teach Relena some Episode I stages before we start. Do you have a preferred class for Episode II? I can possibly show Relena the ropes on a class that won't conflict with what you want to use.

I'll probably go HUcast on this run, maybe HUcaseal, but we should have at least 2 HUs and 1 FO for a 4p group.

Since I'll be using HUnewearl and K.B. will probably want to use HUcaseal, I'll see if Relena wants to clear his FOmarl first.

Since you seem to have a squad for this now, I'll sit this one out and maybe join you on another playthrough. I've been focusing more on my old game as of late, anyway. But good to know that this is getting done. :)

I could do multiple teams, since I got a few characters that didn't do ep.2 yet.

Good game last night. The Gol Dragon fight was cutting it close! Ives kind of saved us on that one by relying on Resta himself and dropping all of his mates and scapes. That damned Freeze though. Whew! And too many close calls due to the shitty camera angle, not being able to see the floor to pick up items. Thanks SEGA!

I'm going to study Gal and Flow patterns today, and I'll be back on tonight if Doc and Ives wish to continue with 2c3, maybe 2c4 too? Or not. No rush, really. Challenge is fun but stresses me out.

I have beat Ep. II C-mode on Xbox. Plus my HUmar on GameCube has his S-rank for Ep. II. I wouldn't mind getting my HUcast his S-rank. I should be free later next week. That is when my son is done with his basketball season.

I'll let you know when I'm open near the end of the week. I have sat/sun free, but I don't know after that.


Btw mint if you're reading this I haven't totally given up on our run yet. Me, Ives, and KB tried 2c3 again and got it, but it took even longer (55 minutes).

I guess I should have at least logged on to see what every one else was doing.

I saw your screen name, and immediately put it into a song that was stuck in my head.

Heh, well the origin of the handle is even more nerdy than that. The two trucks I drive the most in the month prior to my winter break are an Auto Car (Cummings M11; quite the beast) and a Road Boss 2 (an ancient Detroit; God I love to hate this truck, but I also won't let anyone else drive it either). So at some point my crew became known as Team Auto Boss as a result. At least we live up to the moniker.

As much as I love TF, I still have not got around to finishing off season 4 of ToS with my son. Anyways, hope to get some Ep. II C mode in with you at some point.

Hope that no one was on last night c-mode-ing, and sorry if I missed you... I stayed up from Thursday, and went to bed around 6pm est. Just got up--it's a little after 4 am est now. Figured I would reverse my schedule, since soon I will be required to be awake during the hours that the sun is out. BOO!

Solid work on 2c4 everybody! My hands were shaking in that fight, it was so tense. Three of the four of us never fought 2c4 Olga before, and we only needed one attempt at him.

That's not to say we got there on the first try (more like the 8th or 9th, lots of cheap deaths can happen along the way, or DCs), but the one run where we got to Olga was a success!

All that remains is 5 now.

Yeah, I'm not going to lie. I had pretty much given up and was just going through the motions, as it were. After getting DC'ed on the first run, and then losing a scape to the early hallway biter's charge, I was just numb. The side battles with the squids were luckily of no consequence... It was just a dry run, after all. Hah!

Agreed on the fight with Flow though. That really was some very good teamwork. Everyone stuck to their required roles and we pulled through as a result.

I really really really hope 2c5 is less stressful.

Good luck. You guys may want to do a Tower run or two before doing Ep. II C5. It will help you get in the right mindset.

We beat Stage5 on the first try. Episode II really has an anticlimactic ending, so here's a screenshot of our epic team at the non-anticlimactic part:
