I was running HA the other day with my guild, I was playing the Sandwarder. We faced a heroway in the first part of Scarred Earth, and they all balled up under the bridge. Echo Sandstorm FTFW. The other teams almost did the same thing. Best scorechart I've ever seen. :)

Ah, a nostalgia thread. I had quite a few great moments.

1. Beating a r10-12 team (http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y48/Zerg0nator2/GW%20screens/gw842.jpg), back when there were only a few r12s in the world and half of them were on that team, that was heavily stacked against rspike... with rspike. (By "heavily" I mean 2x aegis + 2x shields up + Leeloof on his choking gas ranger, before his build became popular. )
Names (http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y48/Zerg0nator2/GW%20screens/gw843.jpg), if anyone knows the HA old-timers.

2. Holding halls for 7 rounds with barrageway during peak hours. Owning both enemy ghosts right after 2 minutes and/or constantly interrupting them. 5 rangers barraging an altar is scary. Awesomest holding run I've ever had.

3. Getting a 1v1 in halls against VIM. (http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y48/Zerg0nator2/gw151.jpg?t=1165425033) Funniest single hold ever. We stood there for 4 minutes, doing nothing.

4. Getting fighter hench her r3. (http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y48/Zerg0nator2/gw892.jpg) Too bad she didn't emote a bambi. (Our caller e7'd after we took the altar and we held 8 rounds with a fighter hench)

5. Getting absolutely wtfpwned by Spearmen running Flesh Golem factory (http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y48/Zerg0nator2/gw859-2.jpg) before the bug that allowed you to control multiple golems was fixed. Nothing quite like seeing 50 flesh golems rushing at your face. :D

Ahahaha! I have a good one for this, lemme find the screenshots.

Here we are in YAY holding. Notice the teams we're up against? Both very good teams with all r9+ players. Suffice to say, Wellz and Marvel were whispering each other and both groups completely avoided each other and ganked us for 10 minutes straight! as hard as they could.... 10 full minutes, two teams attacking us...

The end result speaks for itself.

Thank you, thank you. :cutie:

(Don't mind the cussing, we were all a bit... agitated.)

edit: Oh, and the reason this is my favorite HA moment is cause.. If you were in that YAY group, only you could really understand the **** we went through in that match... It was soooooo hard, and they talked so much ****... Then we beat their *****! hahaha :heart:

This is 2 consecutive wins so it was Underworld--> HOH skip but !!!

It was the most fun...

Back in the day, I was running Edge bomb with some guildies to work off steam. Guess what the first team we ran into was...

Another Edge bomb, lol. Shortest match in history, both teams wiped, no winners. To bad I didn't take any screenies. :(

Amusing score charts have come and gone, but I'd say my favorite HA moment was when my first guild won hoh together. I felt a lot of pride there. Basically we all started out unranked (2 people had just gotten r3), and we got better and better until we started winning hoh a little bit. No fotm crap either, just straight up balanced... and this was back in 2005 when HA was a little more competitive. I mean a lot of guilds have formed out of pvpers and done very well, but having 8+ pve farmers come together, learn HA as a guild, and eventually have success, was a nice feeling :smiley:

Facing a group on Broken Towers who immediately say "You guys are sooo unlucky to face us, we just didn't win HoH because our RoA errored.".

We wait to see what is up. They seem to be running some kind of holding build as they put fertile up and cap at 3.00.

We circle round to their spirits, their monks do not reposition, so we're right in their backlines while the 3rd team obliges us by attacking them frontal.

30 secs later their team has wiped and it's just us and the other team in a interruptfest on each others ghostly.

We lost, but felt so good to defeat the overconfident group :)

Yeah man, I just get all tingly inside when I realize that 2 teams can gank 1. :rolleyes:

Well too be honest we were expecting the 3rd team to totally ignore whoever was holding broken towers, like they do soo many times.

And if they truly were a holding build they should've been able to hold out versus 2 teams, or at least not die in 30 secs.

This one goes way back.

Winning two then skipping to the HoH, beat down the first team to get the bridge to appear. Start heading to the middle to see one hell of a sight. Then and there I suddenly realize what the Millions and Millions of Bone Fiends thread here was all about. LuLu the Monk's team was holding the hall and I was seeing minion factory for the first time.

We running edge bomb too once and we met another eoe in Burial Mounds :rolleyes:

We both run up and kill each other. Of course the priest didn't die... At two minutes we resurrect again, we all die again :laugh: Same at 4 and 6 minutes. Then we all start running crazy over the map and wandspiking people with heavy DP. In the end one of us remained alive, chain rezzed our team and we won :tongue:

I don't want to take the time to find the pictures, but my favorite HA moment (and my proudest one) was when 6v6 just came out (almost no heroway, no fotms, just a lot of balanced builds) and we ran into leeloof in underworld running almost the exact build that we were running ... oh the pride I felt as I flashed my deer after we beat them (even better ... I was monking).

Alleji, dual orders ranger spike, brings back memories.Technically, yes, but it's not the damage-stacking orders. The other necro was OoA/Bonder. :P

I started playing tombs a couple weeks before order stacking was nerfed and didn't get into rspike right away... :(


Lulu holding (http://www.cheatenabled.com/images/lulucheats.jpg)Wouldn't IWAY (or anything with EoE) completely own that in seconds...?

if you manige to survive long enough to kill a few minions, yes

but i think you are dead before you get to kill enough of them, eoe triggering off humans doesnt bomb the minions offcourse since its not same race

Wouldn't IWAY (or anything with EoE) completely own that in seconds...?At the time IWAY hadn't arrived on the scene. It's precursor 8 Wa/Mo were about the only warrior pressure teams and were few and far between. Infact about the only other builds beyond balanced and those already mentioned was air spike (Chain Lightning)

The emergence of MF might be considered the end of the initial balanced builds that were the first flavor of the month. Ever since there has been a string of FoTM builds.

When IWAY emerged and evolved some it didn't really need to be ready. Just drop EoE and wait was all that was needed. If you felt like you needed to hurry seed a warrior and let him lead the charge in. IWAY in a sense kept Minion Factory in check.

I realize that this thread is old...almost 2 years,but I just joined this site and want to share with you all.I actually enjoyed 6v6 back in the day as it made people change up builds,we didn't always run the same build,we were just having fun and enjoying the game.Even though we had a hall skip,we held it for 3 rounds.It's funny how the people just stand there.At the time I was just r4,and I'm still r4...lol.I just lost the interest doing HA and because of rl issues,but I still play it from time to time with my good friend and longtime guild leader Doc Feel Good,some of you may have seen him in HA as Doc Does HA.Good times and memories will always be remembered.

Best memory is with SWAY in HoH.
My team was mostly crap. Most of them spend whole time in the middle, trying to cap. I think.
Well, I solo capped two times. And killed 4 or 5 guys.
Was pretty awesome that one team send things to gank me but I showed them who is capping and who is dying.

In the spirit of thread ressing.

Holding halls 5 times in a row with byob.
Meaning 1 mo/a, 4 different e/mo's 1 r/a and 2 w/a's.

Also ganking the **** out of some HA guild so they cried about it in local. How is it possible to get wiped fully 6 times during a relic run, to 6 people?

the night I was accepted into the spearmen

we were running a zero melee spirit/hex with a fertile bomb during factions. It was a good agression build but terrible at holding halls, but we managed to do it 8 or so times on sheer interrupts alone, including several of my savage shots

So far (I don't play HA much) was in a pug, where we got about 6% morale boost from the zaishen part and went on with 6 players because of two d/c's just before the first round. We went against a full team which ran heroway/minions and we managed to win :cool:.

1) April's fool's stickmen. I had a blast.

2) The time our time went in and I lagged so bad, when I stopped lagging we already won. Without me. That was funny.

Oh and a new one to add.

Winning against the most terrible bund of Rspikers I could ever imagine.
Our monk had to rage as it was late.
We had 2 henchmen, monk and mage. (Mage owns btw)
So we were basically 5 people without a monk and they still managed to lose.
Geegee, the competition in this game is extremely high !

I think my most memorable moment in halls was...

3-way. Us [cow] on one side, pug thumpway on the other side, Wanna Be Gangstas rspike holding. This was old tombs, with the capture the altar objective. We waited for about 5 minutes doing nothing. Nothing's happening, and out of nowhere, I used Aura of Displacement to Wanna Be, pulled my sin combo on him, killed him with his monks completely in range, then ranked his corpse, while everyone was watching. The thumpway team was loling in all chat. I can only imagine what wannabe was screaming to his monks on vent. Not a single one of them tried to save him. I still remember devines voice saying "that was pretty leet shard" after berating me earlier for doing stupid **** on other maps.

And here's my leet sigil h4xX0rz

1. EoE hexway, we are playing against a balanced and they had a flawless victory but everyone on their team is around 30% health because of the degen from disease poison and hexes, they kill out last 2 monks, but i have full health because I am the sparit spammer. 88 damage goes off and BOOOOOOM all 8 of them die. The last words before the left the games were wtf.

2. In halls we were winning on a points cap 4-3-0 and randomly one paragon goes holy **** my arm (he cramped his forearm) then with him afk we begin to lose 6-4-1 I say screw this guys and get really pissed off. Randomly I begin to go on a killing spree tagging 10 kills in 35 seconds. On vent all that you could here was ******** it lets **** these ******* ********!!!!!! as we gave up capping and farmed balth faction.

3. [QuCo] calling my old guild [tls] (We became RiCE later on) noobs and saying that we should go back to the underworld when we lose to them on a relic run. We then go UW-> Halls and meet [QuCo} who had just won. We were running sandstorm spike from an ele ball at the time, and as them and another all get destroyed on the altar we mention- We went back to underworld, now its your turn.
