PermalinkUHH 3 - Period 9(KO) Summary! Vs QuickMythril
This period was the battle of the top 16! I never anticipated making it this far into the competition, honestly, I thought for sure I'd be gone in Period 6. I'm really getting the most out the UHH this year after being eliminated in Period 5 in the past 2. At this point, it is starting to become draining as I focus all of my effort into these achievements, and even try to get out of real life situations if I can, just to squeeze as much time as I can into the hunt. I will say, that as draining of an experience as it is, it is nice to get my 20 out of the way earlier so I can rest the rest of the period and try to muster back that dedication for the next period. That being said, this week was very different from expected.

PermalinkUHH 3 - Period 8(KO) Summary! Vs Drelzar
Period 8 features the top 32 contestants remaining in the contest, which I am very happy and proud to be a part of. I never thought going into this contest that I'd somehow make it further than the past 2 with more irl responsibilities than before. In the past 2, I didn't have a job, so it shouldn't have been difficult to keep up and try to win matches. I'll say that UHH 1 was moreso the luck of the draw that eliminated me, with 3 achievements being glitched. However UHH 2, was my own fault due to my sleep schedule. I guess that's a nice factor about having the job though, it keeps me on a decent schedule for this contest. On Mondays that I'm off, I'm able to get up an hour before the period starts to wake up, and get ready, then start as soon as the period does. On top of that, I have real friends, who like to hang out now, and while I really like this contest, and would love to keep progressing, I won't push my friends away to do it.

PermalinkUHH 3 - Period 7(KO) Summary! Vs GillesdeRais
At this point in the competition, everyone you face will give you a challenge, because at this point, it is pretty much only the elite players still going. Now I know that a few of the people who would be considered top tier were eliminated by pre-loading or alts, which is unfortunate. I really don't like alts in competitions, and I really don't get the point. It's not like any of that glory will be for your tag anyway, plus if you reveal who you are, everyone will hate you for doing that tactic anyway. Luckily I have managed to avoid alts, mostly due to my collection which doesn't have many easy indies that aren't completed.

To add to that, it is almost impossible for someone to have slid through with easy rounds to this point, so you really know that you are in for some fierce competition. Last period was an extremely close game, with a win for me at 20-17 at the end of the period. I was the second player to hit 20, only behind an alt. I will admit, that our list wasn't too awfully long, and some of the achievements were more skill based than time consuming.

This week that seems to be the opposite, everything on the list takes forever. There were only 3 achievements that took less than an hour, would have been 5, but I was having issues with 2, which I'll get into the daily summaries.

PermalinkUHH 3 - Period 6(KO) Summary! Vs Elde
I can say one thing for sure, I've never had a period quite like this one. I'm happy to have made it this far in, and I'd like to continue going, but that means winning against an opponent who has done quite well against his previous opponents. His overall points in the UHH are much higher than mine, he played strong every round, whereas I've only played as strong as I needed to.

I have no periods to compare this to in the last UHH, like I stated last post, I've always been eliminated in period 5. So I suppose it's time to focus on the now.

PermalinkUHH 3 - Period 5(KO) Summary! Vs ORIGENxGarboMan
Here we are in the knockout rounds. I actually made it into the rounds with quite a few points to spare, I believe I ended up in the top 150. I don't actually remember how many points I had, and there isn't a way to check without doing pointless math. It really didn't matter where you placed anyway, as long as you got into the top 256.

Period 5 has always been my downfall in the past, and I'm hoping I can break the cycle in this UHH. In the UHH 1 Period 5 , I lost my matchup 8-13. Ultimately, I was somewhat salty that my UHH ended this way. The main reason I lost was Minecraft on the Xbox 360. I had 3 achievements that had glitched on me the week before, and of course, they were drawn. I tried many of the suggested methods to get it to unlock, but nothing worked. Being 3 achievements down that I had no way of unlocking, made me give up mid-week and focus on other games. I don't blame my opponent for this though, just my luck. In the UHH 2 Period 5 , I lost 13-19. This one was mainly my fault with my sleep schedule at the time. Because at that point I had no job, I was sleeping during the day and playing at night. This presented a problem because in my time zone, the lists go up at 10am. I wound up falling behind because I was sleeping at the wrong time and couldn't catch up unless I unlocked the Halo 3 achievement, which neither of us got because at that point, no one was playing it anymore, and I couldn't dual-box.

With that very long introduction, lets get started with the current period 5.
