    Default Ironman Challenge

    Anyone else tried this?

    It goes something like this: Play solo, get hit until you are close enough to death (or just take off all your units) so that you will die in a single hit. Proceed to attempt the mission without once using a healing item or resta.

    It gets really hair-raising, especially against the bosses. Serious adrenaline rush, man!

    I've seen challenges like these arise in other MMOs where the challenge provided was too underwhelming.

    Another rule should be that you have to wear the 1 star version of your weapon.
    Oh..and TPS mode everywhere. >:c Play hunter? Too bad real fighters don't have 3rd person view.

    Gonna do this vs Banther/Banshee combo!*

    *and it will take 23 years of trying, but I'll do it!)

    I've thought about doing this a few times though, yeah. I already capped my Hunter and have been looking for other ways to dork around with the game when not leveling my Ranger. Could be fun to mess around with while looking for matter board drops and the like.

    Cold as winter, guns of summer. Point and watch them run.

    Yeah, actually. I tend to keep Fury Stance on at all times, and have my HP below 15% so I can feel like I'm playing Danger Mario. Lulz.

    And don't forget to starve you mag so it doesn't do anynthing. And who needs PB?

    I-I actually find this amusing but I'd faildie so hard if I tried it.

    Reminds me of that age old challenge in MMOs.

    Reach the cap without leveling* your character.
    *Here I suppose it would be not going near the skill trainer or the PA/Tech disks.
    Levels will obviously be gained but you wont benefit from all those skillpoints.


    Quite humorous really in other MMOs. Not sure I would like to try it here...

    That kind of stress-inducing play isn't my idea of fun at all, but I'd be interested in seeing other people do it in uploaded videos and whatnot.

    Did this quite a bit in Monster Hunters. Well the ideas just not to get hit, but since I don't really wanna actually die I'll just play with my normal gear and TRY to not get hit. Just dodging practice I guess.

    To me the block with the sword is kinda clunky right now. Not sure of lag or I just suck (I swear it just refuses to block when I hit Shift sometimes). Maybe I should find a controller to use

    Yeah I kinda feel the same way. I get too relaxed when I play games.

    I did intentionally fight two ragnes in lava for the extra challenge though. It was awesome.
