Why numbers are fun!

More often than not, people pour countless hours into activities they love or work towards bettering themselves personally, or for career based reasons. But today, the League is proud to present an aggregate statistical overview of the activity that we love, and love dearly…fragging online terrorists.

Call of Duty 4’s online stat tracking is pretty comprehensive, and is always a beauty to look at. So how do we stack up in the world of online, competitive shenanigan-ry? Let us take a look and see…

Between the folks here at League of Avatars, (Dangerman64, Longcoitus, Nwpettigrew, Teen Ape) there are some mighty impressive (or pathetic) numbers to be had! In terms of total play time, we have thus far chocked up approximately 9 days and 14 hours of total play time. Or for those of you whole enjoy larger numbers, that’s 230 hours, or 13,800 minutes! Indeed folks, one knows not the meaning of determination until four people have collectively played only a single component of a game for more than 9 days worth of time.

On the lighter side of things, the League is also accountable for 30,822 online kills in COD4. Therefore, roughly 2.23 players online get fragged by us and throw down their controllers in disgust every minute we’re in battle! The total number of kills and time we’ve acquired online in COD4 equate to roughly the annihilation of the Russian city of Karpinsk, whose population is just over 30,800 in under 10 days time! And thats mainly through the use of small arms fire, with the occasional air support via airstrike or attack helicopter.

So the next time you hop online in Call of Duty 4 or any other online FPS, remember, all those stats you are acquiring mean something. Thankfully for some they’re not drafting us geeky/videogame type folks, because we sure know how to rack ‘em up.

Geek Theorist : Indy 4

Leaked images and plot spoilers have become almost commonplace on the internet these days. Almost daily the interwebs are inundated with all kinds of spoilers on flicks like Cloverfield and the Dark Knight. It’s getting to the point where one can pretty much piece together what the movie is going to be about, without ever seeing it. So with that in mind, I have taken it upon myself, as a Geek Theorist, to piece together the plots of these films so that you, the viewer, don’t have to waste your time trying to cobble it all together.

This week I’m going to be taking a look at Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

First, let’s start with all the evidence to date. Aintitcool News has posted a couple of spoiler images like this one of the crystal skull and another pic at MTV.com of Indy in a very familiar looking warehouse. Couple that together with some plot spoilers that indicate Indy is mucking around at Area 51 and a very interesting picture begins to form.

Could Indy ending throwing down with some Alien baddies? Well, considering the past Indy flicks I’d have to say no. So then what is the possible relation between Indy, an alien crystal skull and the warehouse that houses the Ark of the Covenant?

It is all so simple it is almost foolish. Consider if you will that all two Indiana Jones flicks have been about uncovering relics central to the Christian Faith. The Ark of the Covenant and the Holy Grail. I think if we consider all angles of this the answer is so astounding that it is blasphemous.

I believe that the major twist of Indiana Jones 4 is this: The Crystal Skull is that of Jesus Christ!!

That’s it my friend, Jesus was an alien and the Ark of the Covenant was some kind of Alien Death Machine and the Communists want the skull so that they can destroy Christianity and thus America. HA!

No need to thank me. I’ll be vindicated when we all see the new Indy trailer drop with the Spiderwick Chronicles. Until then, stay up to date on all things Indy 4 at the Unofficial Crystal Skull Fan Page.

And just remember, this is only one geek’s theory.
