Gaming’s Ultimate Betrayals Winners!
Speaking of winners, congrats to itismemarkinit for sharing his woeful story of Borderlands farming gone wrong winning him the Grand Prize spot! Read his tale below.
It was a sad day in Pandora, a very sad day.
Me and a “buddy” were farming Hyperius for the elusive Norfleet. I was not bothered with which element the gun was, but I just wanted to own one. My friend at the time already had one and he agreed to help me farm in the hope that Hyperius would make the exclusive drop. Hours went by and as I was getting tired due to it being late and the boredom of repetitive kills, Hyperius finally drops the Norfleet. I was over the moon and didn’t pick it right away; I just sort of looked at it in shock and awe. I hit “y” on my keyboard to type my celebratory message and was half way though my sentence when along comes my buddy and picks it up. He says it is better than his and in a different element and exits the game. I went to Steam chat to rant, but he just said, “first come, first served.” It was the one and only time I have ever removed anyone from my friends list. I hope he stills puts himself in to FFYL every time he uses it. I am reluctant to put his Steam ID here, but he knows who he is and should be ashamed of himself. I wouldn’t mind him getting the gun, but I was hosting the game :(
Further congratulations goes to our five runner-ups:
