Congrats. Even though the spawns are consistent, Ep. II C mode is no joke. What S-ranks did you all get, and what special do you all plan on adding?

Yeah, both me and KB chose a needle, and Ives got a J-cutter.

I really want to put Hell on the Needle because I'm completely addicted to Megid now. Funny enough, only a month ago, I thought that Hell/Megid were dumb and I never used either of them. Then Kayak gave me a 40% Hit Hell Laser that dropped in one of our games. So after playing around with it in CCA and Bedz, it quickly became my favorite weapon. Now I also routinely do FOnl Bedz solo just for the thrill of penetrating Megid randomly taking out 2 Sinows or Morfos simultaneously. I literally get high off Megid-ing Biters before they can charge (this rarely happens, and I usually get flattened).

So it goes. We need to do some 1c games now.

Sure enough, we were doing Ep.1 C tonight, taking the edge off of the Ep.2 run. We did 4 stages, with Darwin stepping in for KB.

I can start the next Ep.2 run as well Kevlar, whenever you're ready.

Not even Luck Material is effective enough to cause this to happen. :lol:

Epic Chl-moad run was epic!

Great games, guys! Ep. 1 is a lot of fun. While it was occasionally frustrating, the lows are not quite as despondent as those I experienced while we ran Ep. 2. I wonder if everyone who plays Ep. 2 challenge comes to point where they just want to quit? Probably their first time through anyway.

I am super impressed by our finish time, too. Crushed it!

Our Episode II run confirmed what I suspected all along: Episode II has only a pale imitation of Challenge mode and not the real thing. The balance and stage progression are terrible, especially compared to Episode I. Sadly, you still have to slog through it if you want certain S-Ranks on GC. Oh well. At least most of them are useless, so you only have to spend a minimal amount of time on Episode II. :lol:

Yes I sure do. Gotta play in the nighttime hours though, cause I've been working a lot this month
