The first ever Battle City Gauntlet event took place last night and it was very fun! I logged on around 9pm EST and finished it right on time for 10pm! 😉
I’d like to thank the entire Battle City community for making this event a pleasure to host. There were over 30 players online, yet the Gauntlet was not damaged, sabotaged or attacked all night! In fact, with the exception of ReBeL, nobody tried causing any mischief! Thanks!
The Gauntlet was definitely not easy. Only those with the best tank driving skills were able to reach the end. There were no winners until around 11:30 when Chris finally made it to the end! Chris actually had died on the last turret about 30 minutes earlier, but this time made no mistake!
By the end of the night, CMB, TylerDurden, Knights, mrmcnutz, Iggy and BoC all made it to the end of the Gauntlet! Congrats! There were many spectators gathered at the finish line cheering those who survived that far!
All the winners received 1000pts, though some decided to sponsor a newbie or to share with someone who helped them.
Chris – Gave his 1000pts to lejeune
Iggy – Gave 500pts to Redxkingz
Knights – Gave 200pts to RBG
mrmcnutz – Gave 200pts to SomeAsshole
TylerDurden – Gave 100pts to Wujiamin
BoC – Gave 2pts to Ballsout
CMB – Gave CMB 1000pts
Also, Yoyo won 2pts for jumping over the walls right in front of the finish line!
On another note, my account earned 920 points, which means the Gauntlet claimed 460 lives in a single night. With 7 winners, that means 1.5% of the attempts made at reaching the end of the Gauntlet were successful. Definitely a challenging Gauntlet.
The Gauntlet event was built and hosted by Weebo. Here is a screenshot of the whole Gauntlet put together by Maikeru:
