Day 44 - Gaige seizes Opportunity. To die. Repeatedly. As usual, she completes Statuesque by hanging so far behind the constructor that enemies never spawn to threaten it. Then she proceeds to diefest continually against that 3.0 constructor in the east corner of the map. First time was understandable. The next five times were pure rage. Neverending waves of respawns, including respawns on the way to more respawns on the way to restocking her damn ammo, kicking off even more respawns. Everything from engineers walking around with E-tech (that wouldn’t drop if she killed them) to angelic loaders carrying Vladof snipers for some reason, with 100% hipshot accuracy, tagteaming with WAR loaders that would jump in front, and ION loaders spamming their stupid globes, ensuring nothing actually quite died until she was forced to retreat all the way to the damn entrance. Twice she got that constructor down to 5% health before some dumbass thing would send her into FFYL just as it died. Twice she had to fight the constructor that respawns at the history tour. I swear the timer on that thing is set to once every five minutes. And the only way to get into position to kill it is to kill… yet another respawn wave. I’d damn near had it by the time I finally chewed through the whole thing, like a loaf of pumpernickel you’d found out was stale after you’d paid way too much for it.
Perseverance ultimately won. And with 360 stacks, I decided to leave the game running overnight.
Level 55. 916 AR kills to go.
