The following are real comments that were said by real people in GameSpy Tunnel. They are NOT fake. The following comments are reproduced just as they were written to us. Some are direct comments on us and others aren't exactly about us (maybe something we did), but ALL the data on the following table is accurate (dates, scores, etc), but you may notice that the data gets more detailed at a certain point. This is because we didn't really know what we we're doing when we started this and failed to include scores of games that they didn't comment after or neglected to say how many people were in the match. We've also had other comments (such as: -you waxed our asses), but those were before we started writing them down, so you will only find comments that have been accurately written down when they were said. Call us liars, but we know the truth.
Note: For almost all of these games we hosted, but there were games where we didn't (but I think we forgot to say which). Also no one complained about lag (if they did, we mentioned it). Check out our Modes section to see how we play (our rules). Also note that we never said anything to provoke any of the comments that you see.
The following is called stepping up to someone who talks shit about you:
By clicking on the picture to the right you can follow a conversation (pt1 and pt2), between us and sneak425. Normally, we wouldn't take pictures because its just too much work overall, but we decided to do it this time.
The basic breakdown is as follows:
We played a game on their host and lost (cause of bad lag).
We challenged them to the same match, except with us as host.
They talked some shit and we ended up in another match with them hosting.
We bitched them on their own host by shutting them out in a CTF match that had lag (note the last line).
Yet another person who doesn't like us:
"...stop being so full of yourselfs thinking your the best because your not. u play on gamespy, wow what a joke, anyone that hosts WILL win on gamespy because that shits FULL OF LAG. Go to xboxconnect and play on that, u guys think your so good, but really your not, u just been facing a bunch of noobs. ...Ovk=overkillED clan....haha NoOBS!!!" -Taken from a post on the HBO Forum.
An interesting converastion on GameSpy:
Someone named Larcen messaged us out of no where on 1/8/03 and started talking to us. The following are only the lines we have decided to show (but there were others [just like all comments]):
I heard from a friend that overkill has their own chapter in bungie
and that they are the best clan there is
any truth to that?
do you want to play? I want to see what the hype is about
the kid that thinks your good is just some kid
he told us about you cuz we like a challenge
he said you were the best
don't know if its true or what
if you want to send your two best vs mine i guess well see
It should be noted that we found out that the "kid" that told Larcen about how good we were, had never actually played us (so he says). We played them on our host and rules 2vs2 (don't remember who played against them) to 5 captures on HEH. We beat then 5-0. We then played with their crap rules (bad rules + lag = not good) and we lost 3-1. I remember that we beat them quite easily on our host, while they struggled more to win on their host. They did say something after the matches:
yea, you guys are goodBest competition tonight
Someone doesn't like us:
"...the first in probably a series of losers to write their clan name in their gamertag. what a waste. From what i know i heard of them being some halo clan. their rise to fame i am told was shortlived, if you call whatever they had fame. Clans are a waste." -Taken from a post on the HBO Forum.
Referring to us after seeing our Halo videos.
"a talented Halo-abusing team" -Taken from a news post at rampancy.net
-Folks like Linden War Factory and Team Overkill are way better than me, although truth be told I've only played them or seen them play as a team, not solo... but who am I kidding, those guys are good.
Didn't post this until now, but its a great example of proof that every comment here is the truth. The following was taken from the news on HBO where they mentioned our write up of the NYC Halo LAN Fest. Click here to see it or just read the excerpts below:
"Team Overkill, a group of four sharpshooters from Staten Island..."
Another great example comes from Miguel Chavez (Bs.Bungie.Org). Click here or read the excerpt below (NOTE: Anything in parenthesis is something inserted by us):
"Without a doubt, the best players were Team OverKill. These 4 guys (LOGAN, DmAn, BadAzZ and sLiPnOt) from Staten Island play the game with alot of seriousness. And it shows! We were getting creamed by them regularly and even played a 4 vs 12 game of CTF/Blood Gulch and those guys REALLY did well. In some ways, it got a little 'too serious' (Umm...BadAzZ and sLiPnOt) and I started to get bummed that folks were yelling at each other. I'm into competition, but especially when we're all in one giant room, there's no need to yell and get pissed... especially if the people you're getting pissed at are not spectacular players and might not understand the strategy of the game we're playing. Anyway, soon we all calmed down, and the fun continued. But even that 'incident' was really no big deal, everyone had a great time, and I had fun playing with so many different folks. I know some other players, and I would love to see the Team OvK guys play with, for instance, the Linden Factory chapter (This is in the works. Hopefully, we'll see something about this in the Events section in the future), or even some folks from the Halo Junkies over in Connecticut. That would be a real test of skill vs skill. Maybe one day such an event will happen."

The word is spreading. Someone we don't know mentioned us in the HBO Forum. PCDestroyer was talking about the Halo50K team tournament, click here to see the post or just read the excerpt below:
"Oh, and Team OverKill... we'll cya in the Finals... because you guys seem to be the cream of the crop for competition... the same caliber as our team. At least I'm hoping to get to play you guys. If not, we'll have to snag some TVs and go off to play our own games to see who's tops.
Sorry if someone else is part of an "elite" team out there... if so, I haven't heard of yer exploits like I have of Team Overkill's."
"Well, you guys are the one team ours would like to play... Be good to see who is exactly tops around here... the Elite Enforcers or Team Overkill... Come down to sunny FL and we'll provide the room for the rumble." -Taken from this post.
Another comment from Miguel Chavez (BS.Bungie.Org). He was talking about the warm up event for the Nation Halo Tournament. Click here or read the excerpt below (NOTE: Anything in parenthesis is something inserted by us):
"I also got to meet some new faces of fellow Halo nuts... I hope to meet some of them again, and there are definitely 'new' teams on my list of superbly skilled players... folks that I would love to get my other list of 'great teams' like Team Overkill and Linden War Factory to meet at some point. (btw, Team Overkill and Linden War Factory ARE meeting in the next few days, awright!) Because for me it's not just that *I* get to play, but I enjoy seeing skilled players strut their stuff."
Mercenaries for hire (umm...free):
Ok, we know we've been posting a lot of comments from Miguel Chavez, but he's one of the few people we've played in a LAN match with, so bear with us. The following is an email we received from him. We'll let it speak for itself:
"Listen, I'm sure you're all busy training for the tourney, but I have a proposition for you... these guys that I've met a few times over here at Kings Games... there are a group of them that are so full of themselves... they need a good ass-kicking :) I was wondering if you guys would be into coming over and checking it out and maybe I can witness you guys take them on and show them how it's done. :) They really good, but it's mainly cause they play the same damn game over and over again... always team slayer, or iron ctf or something like that. And when they win, they just pick the same game over and over again. It's tough to beat them with just rabble players, know what I mean? Even beyond teaching these guys a lesson, it would be cool to get together and play some rounds of Halo.
So what do you guys think? The game center store is just over the Verrazano over in Brooklyn.
We said we would definitely do it. Hopefully, we'll see something about it in the Events section soon.
