Yeah since the bonus streak went Individual less interesting. Plus it's really easy to stay in in comparison.

I dunno, I just had a look and I'm actually not that far ahead of the line! Might end up having to drop those points after all. :lol:

Oh you don't have enough now :lol: 3200 minmum, not even sure our team score is quite there yet depends on bonus's available to those in the drop.

Point is if you both score the same TA you can stuck another 500 on that for team survival.

Well that's how it's looked last few weeks anyway. Could change as bonus' get used and fewer people are eliminated.

3,700 points clear of the drop with less than six hours to go. Should be enough, right? :dread:

You'd like to think so. I take it you're not going to be around at cutoff today?

Unfortunately not, I’ll have my hand hovering over the red bonus button come ten to three though. I think that every single time our team has gone out, we’ve gone out with unused bonuses. Not this time!

:lol:

I don't think you're going to need them having done a scouting mission. Of the 15 teams in the elimination zone at the moment 6/7 have no bonus's at all and 2/3 wouldn't catch either of us even if they used all available. And obviously those that could catch us may well be replaced by more teams with no bonus's


I hear you on quick points. When the Game Pass runs out I'll have to go shopping. Have allowed myself £5 a week for this and let it build up to £29 over a few weeks, that's a lora gooseberry fool games :lol:

Pretty glad I stacked up a year's worth of Game Pass when they were doing it for £3 a month. That'll keep me going for a while. :-)

The games in general are awful :lol:

It was good to play Limbo again and Brothers, once I got back into it and up to where I was on the 360 was great but really hard work to get back into.

Aside from that the rest have been crap

There's a few classics in there, but for me they're just bonuses to getting all the MS first party stuff on day one. £36 to play Sea Of Thieves, State Of Decay 2, Original & The Will Of The Wisps and Crackdown 3 seemed like good value. Although naturally I haven't even booted up Sea Of Thieves yet. :fp:

Sounds like you aren't missing too much there to be fair, but the time we get knocked out it might actually be a finished game though maybe a blessing in disguise

Oh I can see, they just aren't games you play when you need to score a couple of thousand gamer points in one week :lol:

Yeah there's actually not that many of those on the service at the moment, I guess they want games that keep you playing and therefore subscribing.

Up to you, you're going out if you don't :lol:

We are looking ok at the moment but if you recall last week I'd not say we are fine just yet.

OK, that's possibly overkill but better to be safe than sorry.

It's more the number of people that's important at this stage. 61 people are not going to scan in and overtake me in 15 minutes.
