    So after talking to my occasional annoying follow medic (kidding night) we came up with the idea for and ungodly kill streak message like...I dunno 50 or something, then the chorus from 3:22-3:37 of Don't Stop Believin' by Journey. We also agreed that if it was too long it could be edited down by a few seconds if need be. So...there ya go, comments, praise, flames, go ahead. :mrgreen:

    Well, since I pitched the idea, I guess I should give some commentary:

    You've killed 50 people, you're on a high... don't stop believin', hold onto that feelin'.

    On the NH servers, there's so many amazing players; I don't think it's out of line to reward them with a special song if they can survive long enough to get a song. I think that the clip that Shade pointed out is a tad bit on the long side, but it flows quite nicely. Since the song will only come up once in a very long while, I'm not sure that the length is really a problem for people who listen (unless it makes for a huge wav file or somesuch; I don't mean to imply that the servers should be pumping out huge files to players).

    Either way, I think it's a nice tribute to our better players to congratulate them if they get a huge kill streak.

    while i'm sure some of the old fogies here like savage and xion and others have a nostalgic appreciation for journey, i'm personally not sure this song is epic enough to capture the ecstatic feeling of going on a 50 kill streak. maybe love will keep us together? that's a pretty badass tune.

    Still Alive would be cool, but only for the people who've played Portal.

    Yeah, I think there needs to be sound achievements that are almost never ever reached just so people can stroke their egos more. Not joking. I think it'd be epic to hear something you never hear, and everybody freaks out and you're like DUDE THAT GUY JUST GOT A 50 KILL STREAK HOLY FUCK.

    I agree... and while I like the Bee-gees' staying alive, the song is not epic enough for the achievement, imho.

    What makes you think they aren't already there? :wink:

    Also, Journey is f'in epic. Just not that version of the song.

    I am a huge fan of the tunes on the servers and would love to see more added after "Who'll Stop the Rain"

    I fully support the addition of Journey - Don't Stop Believing and The Bee Gees - Staying Alive

    Here are my contributions. Links will start specifically where I believe the tune should start.

    Paul Engemann - Push It to the Limit

    Queen - Another One Bites the Dust

    Joe Esposito - You're the Best Around

    Judas Priest - Painkiller
    hard to select a certain part, it's all amazing stuff. 5:01 all the way to "can't stop the painkiller" could be good too.

    Golden Earring - The Devil Made Me Do It
