It's Time For Easy Does It 2!!
Posted By: Morpheus <>Date: 4/14/12 11:54 p.m.

Hey guys--Morpheus414 here with a new--okay, well it's old, but revamped--contest for even more players to sink their teeth into!!

If anyone remembers 2010's contest, I had people playing Halo 3 and/or ODST for either ODST or Reach. Absolutely no one went for the sole prize of ODST, which is kind of messed up. Anyway, this year, I'm going even bigger--I'm giving away up to 3 games this time, and I'm going Social!
(I think.)

Anyway, I'm starting up the same contest this year, but with more prizes!

I call it

Easy Does It 2:The-- know, come to think of it, I couldn't figure out what name to give to this sequel of a contest. Meh, don't worry, we'll put a pin in it later.

Back to the matter at hand...these are the prizes I'm giving away this year.

Listen up fellas, this is where things get tricky!!

I'm still keeping my Prepare to Fall(s) option open, in which you play Halo 3 and ODST to earn points for Reach--that seemed to be the most popular(I mean only) option people chose. However, for those who already have Reach, don't worry--I won't leave you out.

Introducing the Coming Full Circle circuit! Yes, from the beginning, you know the end. This is your chance to make a new beginning. For anyone who has the most points across Reach will earn a copy of Halo:Anniversary!! Here, you can retell the tale in glorious high definition, or in 3D! With the touch of a butto--aw, you guys know the deal. Win it so you can experience it yourself!

And finally, the 4 a.m. Wake-Up Call, which is of course the money shot.
Complete Halo 3, Halo 3:ODST, and Halo:Reach with the most points, and you'll earn November's copy of Halo 4!!!!

So hopefully, we'll have even MORE people jumping at the gun for this challenge! But be warned--fighting for your spot on Number 1 will be more and more difficult this time around. Spread across three full blown games and all trying to find just a few more extra points, or beat the level just a bit faster...keeping track of the millions and tiptoeing higher every playthrough...staying at the top will get harder and harder as this contest progresses. In fact, one might call this Easy Does It 2:The Hardening. And I--

....wait. That didn't sound right.


Enough with the formalities, let's get to the rules!

Contest Summary
1. Complete a game(depending on the circuit) on Easy difficulty, with Campaign Scoring On.
2. Submit your best scores, per level, to my e-mail address.
3. Re-submissions can be sent to the same address.

Contest Prizes
*Coming Full Circle(Halo:Reach=Anniversary)
*4 a.m. Wake-Up Call(Halo 3+ODST+Reach=Halo 4, more on edition choice after further announcement)

Contest Rules
1. Must be on Easy Difficulty
2. Campaign Scoring must be ON.
3. No Co-op.
4. Do not run for multiple contests.

Now that that's out of the way, let me ask some questions of you:

The last time I had this contest, I created a leaderboard with the scores of the top 5 qualifying participants. Some had requested this information, so they'd know their goal. Others felt it was a cheap shot and an easy way for a loser to gain the lead at the last second. Both sides made compelling arguments, so I'm going to ask the community.

Should a leaderboard of the scores be posted? If so, when?

Additionally, since Reach and Anniversary are already out, should I just end those contests sooner, or end all three at the same time, what do you think?

Send me a reply and I'll holler!

In the meantime, turn on your 360's, blow the dust off your discs, and let's make this contest even hotter!!
