Alright, so in a fit of sheer nothing else to do I decided to get back into Halo 3 ranked matches. I got from rank 33 in lone wolves to 42. And then ran headfirst into a brick f***ing wall. It took about 2 and a half hours to get from 33 to 42, and then the next 2 hours were filled with nothing but sheer balls to the wall bulls***tery. In the myriads of matches that occured within those 2 hours, I didn't place better than third at all. Some were even 4th or 5th place.
God. F***ing. Damnit.
