So it's that time again, UHH is upon us again and I'm pretty excited. Granted I will not be making a deep run this time due to an upcoming operation that will get me eliminated but ah well. So i'll once again try to chronicle my last outing in the contest as best as I can remember it. Then I know people love a good power ranking so i'm gonna make some pre contest predictions about who's gonna go far. If you're not in the list then, well step up your game and prove me wrong. ( or I forgot your tag....yeah we'll go with that one ).Week 1: UHH 2 match up: JamP0und32 vs Matty to tha G
So I remember being ridiculously excited about UHH2, I still think it was too soon after the first but give the people what they want and you're good. An easy list but a couple of end game achievements that I needed to get through. Playing through 2/3 of Hot Wheels was dull, getting to act 4 on Call of Juarez Bound in Blood was terrible because that game is just bad. I don't see the appeal, I much preferred the cartel which is totally backwards if you ask any fan of the series. Standard collectable in Burnout but then this:
I hate fighting games so i'm glad I got this on early. Week 2: UHH 2 match up: JamP0und32 vs Oriole2682
I saw the name and thought I was in for a good week, nope. Ori went and pudding'd out on me. Ah well, i'll take the easy 20 again. Literally nothing of note this week, just went through the motions.Week 3: UHH 2 match up: JamP0und32 vs Sammler 360
Another week, another pudding, giving me a triple pudding for the group stage. Set me up nicely for maximum points in the group which was genuinely all I aimed to do. Oh how wrong I was. :P Easy list once again, only long achievement here was playing through the entire Doom 3 campaign which I actually enjoyed so there's that. Week 4: UHH 2 match up: JamP0und32 vs epic fail 1710
First knockout stage and i'd seen epic doing well in the group stage so I was a little nervous. Fortunately he wanted to play a new release half way through the week so I was in the clear, I think it was Battlefield 1? When did that come out, *shrugs. An easy list and we were neck and neck until that midnight when ( insert game name here ) came out. Finished up another 20 and I just wanted to see how many 20's I could get at this point.Week 5: UHH 2 match up: JamP0und32 vs MueKE
I don't remember the reason but I had another easy week with them only scoring 2 achievements. Easy list as usual with the standard Cablea/Doom/pure achievements in there. Only annoying achievement in there was World of Outlaws, that's because that game is just awful. It's all brown, the mud on your screen that you have to wipe of is annoying and it just gives me a headache to play. Gross.Week 6: UHH 2 match up: JamP0und32 vs failurewarning
Here we go, finally I got a one of my friends but it had to be someone who was good at Beijing.
Failure must've spent about 5 minutes on this achievement so I thought, ah cool, I guess it's not as bad as the ratio suggests. Boy was I wrong, I must've spent about 4 hours trying this stupid event nd I still hate you Failure for getting it so damn quickly. Getting 8.95 twice in a row annoyed me immensely. Once that bollocks was out of the way there was mafia posters, completing the whole dark Athena campaign and this:
Now i'm pretty good at this game but this still took me a couple of hours to get. I knew I could get it but it still felt awesome to get it done. Especially when you look at the timestamps of those who have it, must be 75% got it offline because there's a glitch you can do to get it easy. Of course, that was out of the question here as it needed to be online, and i'm happy I got it properly. Week 7: UHH 2 match up: JamP0und32 vs Deacon Vex
Another easy week, nothing of note really. Another set of collectables in Burnout Paradise, collectables in Doom and other nonsense that was easy. Week 8: UHH 2 match up: JamP0und32 vs Ranga Dang Dang
My closes week yet, i'd seen Ranga kicking some ass so knew I was in for a tough week. Achievement wise they were easy so I knew it was a race to 20. I think my previous progress in X-Men and Jericho helped me out a lot. Other than that, some easy minecraft stuff and a fair bit of Disney Infinity.
Week 9: UHH 2 match up: JamP0und32 vs I KICKER I
This was a long list of bollocks. Annex in Gears Ultimate, 100% in GTA4, 500 kills online in Turning Point, every collectable in Batman Arkham Origins, whole campaign on Medal of Honour Airborne. Was a long week and i'm still surprised I managed the 20 here. Onto the quarters.
Week 10: UHH 2 match up: Eric From Cali vs JamP0und32
Anyone who gets this far is going to be competition so I was sort of glad to see a grindy list this week because I knew I could do it. I had to get to level 45 in Forza 3 when I was about 3 when I started. That was 7 hours of driving in a circle, ughhh. The whole of Halo 5 on legendary which I had prepped a few weeks back. I had a few pre loads but I only ever pre loaded during the contest period, anything before i didn't like. 40 waves on plants vs zombies was tricky, all assault ops on Spartan Assault was shit too. The last one was the biggie:
Now, being able to double box was an advantage, i had about 1 million of the 5 required from previous boosting so i still had a lot to do. Luckily, you can idle this with a rubber band so it was alright, just left it doing 1 hour matches overnight. Yes this meant i had to wake up every hour to set up the next match. I was glad when this week was over so i could sleep.Week 11: UHH 2 match up: MattiasAnderson vs JamP0und32
The semi's and i knew it would be rough. Myself and DanielJJ blew our matching games to make this happen as we agreed if the draw went my way i could win. Unfortunately, it did not and it picked, let's be honest some bullshit achievements. There's no way Saw, Steins Gate and Secret service should've come up giving the massive disparity in achievements. Stein gate i had one while he had about 40, ok then. I got all i had been preloading quick but had a doctors appointment that day anyway so probably would've lost even if i had them all ready. So after he got his 20 i just strolled along to get the rest, landing me with 220/220 achievements and top scorer for the whole contest. I'll take it.
So onto UHH3 predictions.MattiasAnderson
This is a given, even with the 10% rule i think he'll win it again. I'd be surprised if he doesn'tDANIELJJ14
Mr runner up, 2 second places makes him a massive competitor. Despite what he says about being more casual i think his competitive nature won't allow him to take it easy.Triple Triad777
Seasoned UHH competitor, i see a semi final here.ChinDocta
As long as he doesn't get complacent again and get knocked out by a dummy tag. :P
Other than that there are a few of the Brazilians that do well in UHH, i forget their tags. Sorry, :) Any of the other top 8 from last year will be up there as well, but lets see some new names do well too. See you all on Monday and go make some friends in the process, i know i did and that's better than going far. :)
