So, since, for whatever reason, the user in question is still on ban from these forums, I thought I would post this on his behalf (and yes he is aware that I will be posting this):
So, as I am sure most if not all of you are aware, from Thursday through to early Monday morning was Battleborn’s “Bird Hunt” event.
And @slif_one decided to do something epic, legendary, and I dare say masochistic.
From the beginning of Bird Hunt right up until the bitter end he played all Bird Hunt all weekend being no one but Benedict.
He slept some, not much.
I played with him and some other friends for a good chunk of the weekend and seeing Slif play Benedict was scary.
I left around 1 am Sunday night to sleep and I know the event had probably 7 or 8 hours left to go at that point.
By then, not even at the end of it yet, Slif had racked up 534 (yes, five hundred and thirty four!) kills as a just Benedict in 58 matches.
That works out to 9.2 kills per match!
That’s 1/20th of the way to Angel of Death in 3 days.
I know Slif had previously been completely staying away from Benny because he understood how broken Benny is in the hands of a skilled player.
And I know other people who went on crazy kill streaks with Benny this last weekend, like kill streaks they had never achieved with other characters.
Slif also had another agenda for spending almost 3 and a half non stop days playing no one but Benny in nothing but Bird Hunt: he was trying to demonstrate to Gearbox that if you take a mode where 2 of the selectable characters are 2 of the most broken in the game (Ernest and Benny) AND you can have up to 5 per team, a lot of people are going to get stomped and stop playing the mode.
As much as I respect Slif and his hardcore efforts, I do still enjoy the wackiness of the event, the thought process which inspired it, and the spirit in which it was intended!
Personally, I enjoyed being forced to play out of my comfort zone and brush up on my Toby (oh god I am going to have recurring nightmares about that character Legendary double stun on multiple Tobies in a match or 2 or 3 Tobies synchronizing their Ults and shields and mines and railgun blasts and just dominating lanes), Marquis, Pendles and Benny skills.
Really fun times!
3.5 days of nothing but Benny in Bird Hunt
534 kills (and counting!)
