I already figured out how to hate some of you Bitmob community members without ever having to meet you, thanks to last Friday's Bitmob Game Night and Halo: Reach.
If your Gamertag is listed on my "killed most by" screen, you qualify. If you captured a screenshot of me dying in some embarrassing way, you also qualify.
And that's what some of you did for our Halo: Reach screenshot/caption contest. We asked you to take your favorite screens using the in-game tools, then caption and post them to Bitmob. Here they are, with our favorite one all the way at the bottom. That member wins a Halo: Reach briefcase filled with some random swag!
Thanks to everyone who stopped by and to all who participated in this story. We all had a lot of fun. And I hate some of you still.
