I'd write a story about my time here at HIH, about how I found this place and started out, how far I've come as a gamer, about all the things I went through in my personal life and how much I've learned and grown, but all I can really say is that I've had a great time. I'm really gonna miss this place, I'm sorry to see it go, but I completely understand, Duke. Thanks for the great ride. It's been a pleasure knowing you all.

That being said, the board isn't going down for another two weeks, so I still have time to throw together one last variety video =)

I've spent a hell of a time here. Mostly lurking and looking at what others did, but sometimes coming up with a (little) something of my own (I'd even have a last one before cyro if Bierwiser shows up in time). Mainly pointless endless internet arguments at the Y&B. But it's thanks to this place my friends know me as "the guy who's always doing some crazy glitch when you join his custom game". It's viral; I try to get out of maps and do stuff in every game I play. To 3 years of not playing the game as it's supposed to be!

Adieu!

I just searched through my site-registration emails:

I'm sitting here staring at the welcome message for the V3 forums, from 6th April 2006! Thats a long time.

Then I remembered I was definitely a part of the V2 forums! Found my profile, 16th January 2005. Wow. Thats 6 years even up to now. I swear I lurked a bit on the V1 forum as well... but anyway.

HIH has been awesome. I will never forget this place. It has lost me many hours of my life; whether it was interacting on the forum, watching videos on Mythica, or trying the tricks for myself.

I never posted a tricking video per-se; I never had a capture card that worked well! But I always followed along, tried some tricks for myself.

Ha! Looking at my old V2 profile, my location is listed as this:
Quote:
Location: Sword Flying Over The Control Room


I consider that to be one of the absolutely defining moments of my time spent tricking, glitching, and otherwise goofing around in Halo. For those who don't recall/don't know, Halo 2 had this awesome glitch where you could be aiming at an enemy with one weapon (say, a rocket launcher), switch weapons, and very quickly lunge with the Plasma Sword, and since the reticle was still red, you'd lunge all the way at the person with your Plasma Sword.

There were ways to extend the distance to obscene degrees. If I'm remembering this right: you could do the trick in the side seat of of a vehicle like the Warthog or Spectre, then move the vehicle far from the original location, get out, and you'd FLY!

I did this trick on (I believe) the level 'The Great Journey,' which featured the Control Room of Delta Halo. The lunge I'd built up was SOO powerful, that it shot me across the level, all the way to the top of the level's invisible barrier, and I sort of hung over the top of the control room for what felt like an age before it final wore off and I fell to the ground and died.

I only did it to that epic degree once, and it was only a very brief event really, but I remember the view from up there perfectly and vividly to this day.

How does this related to HIH? Well, this was the place I found out about sword flying! The people here were the ones that found it, did insane things with it, and replicated some of them myself :)

Oooh! List off some of your favourite tricks to do in Halo!

Grenade Launching stuff!
Grenade Jumping/launching!
Slide Jumping!
Brute Shot jumping!
slipping between doors with the dismount animation! (nightfall & Silent cartographer!)
Vehicle collections! (I did some on AotCR, Delta Halo & Containment Zone :)
Overloading maps!
Breaking spawn sequences! (AotCR bridge fall, Keyes,

WOOO!! Fun!

Its been an awesome 7 years HIH! Keep on trickin'

Hey guys, is anyone interested in a replacement? I could code the forum and MySQL Databases, if anyone is a great designer out there (when I looked at the montages I see many good designers). PM me if interested ;-)

Figured I'd drop in and pay my respects, even though I haven't visited here in like 6 months. Wow it's been a long time, and a lot of fun. Glad to contribute and be a part of it all. I'd say more now but I'm on my phone. Maybe later. I still love (some of) you guys (Termeh!), and I met an awesome chap by the name of Jeremy Hunt through this place. I've already moved on, but I can't forget the good times and people here.

On a related note, I still have the footage on my computer for one last video that I never put together. I think I should finish it.

If he gets his computer soon enough and can remember his password I'm sure he'd want to drop by and shout out to everyone. You guys would be proud of him, he's a marine now.

As for me, can't say I've really been active the past year and a half. I can say that this place got me through my four years of college. This is where I came to put off homework, to vent, to relax after hours of mind numbing classes. I would spend hours with my laptop out at the university cafe just browsing HIH until they finally kicked me out at closing time, lol.

This has been one of the best online communities I have had the honor to be a part of, and I hope that everyone here can find another home on these vast interwebz that is at least half as awesome as HIH.

Walk soft my friends, maybe I'll see you around.

I can't remember exactly how I ended up here but I do remember the very first visit. It was on the V1 forums and Dark Helmet had just made some video (Three towers or something like that) where he would sideseat sword lunge at a phantom's turrent and just fly away. Blew my mind.

My first video was Above and Beyond Relic. Looking back the editing and overall concept of the video was pretty retarded but when Duke put it on front page I almost died from joy.

That video spawned a challenge from him to land a hog on top of the relic tower. That challenge spawned a tricking group the likes of which had never been witnessed throughout history. HimpactRetards...

Swaheeli, Ghost Faction, Shad0wflame, Spnkr Matt, Keasbey, Evlmidget and his bro, causeofdeath15, baseball, NtotheNsane, Crazzy Misfit...I can't even remember everyone in the clan but I'll bet you remember some of the fun times.

Base2Base and Project Mayhem/Chaos were our defining times and the hours logged looking back is pretty ridiculous. I remember not having a mic for so long and they would all laugh at how fast I could type out a text message to my interpreter Swaheeli.

You were all as close to me as my real life friends back then and it's sad that I never got to meet any of you. I have so many memories I could write about HIR but I'll refrain.

Shoutout to Yasha for STILL being leaps and bounds ahead of everyone as far as ridiculous tricks went. CoconutCorp as well for being our bro's in crime.

All the mods, you did what you could to keep the spam at bay and honestly did a fantastic job as well as throwing up some vids of your own (KORHAL on QZ as a shining example).

Ducain, what can I say. We never really talked or responded to eachothers posts or anything really but providing us all with HIH meant you were close to everyone and we all respected the hell out of you.

I could seriously write an essay about HIH but I'll leave you all with my facebook (http://www.facebook.com/#!/profile.php?id=511762050) and some closing words.

To all the HIH'ers I've know and forgotten, it was never about playing some video game or being the first to do something, it was about having friends who truly cared what you had to say and looked forward to the next time you would speak. Good luck in life guys.

Damn, this was one of the few good sites on the internet... Well I guess all good things come to an end. Out of curiosity why are you shutting down the site? Sorry if someone has asked this already, I'm reading this on my phone atm.

I'll make an archive of my videos as well, I think I have enough to make one now.

Wow. I found this site back in the v1 days. This is really a strange idea. HIH was my first home on the internet. I don't even know how to comprehend this. Team called me last night to tell me this... And I'm still in shock... It's been a good ride though. I'm already friends with all my close buddies. But if any of you wish, add me on Facebook! I'm in the HIH page on Facebook. :)

The things I'll always remember(thanks to HIH):

- The credit whoring. Who could forget? lol
- When we(Doubtful, Jakeyboy(I think), and myself) got to the ledge at below Gemini.
- HIR <3
- The warthog on top of the Relic tower challenge.
- The millions of attempts at T2T. Also, HOW AM I SUPPOSE TO KNOW IF SOMEONE ACTUALLY COMPLETED IT WITHOUT HIH?! :(
- My days in Coconutcorp. :)
- My crappy machinimas that I posted here during V2.
- POTS (I'm glad his words of wisdom will be frozen in time.)
- All my tricking inspirations like Yasha, Johnintoit, grumpy, HX2T, CC, HIR, BGT, etc.
- The endless hours online trying to do some seemingly impossible trick or launch.
- Meeting good friends. (Spuff, Kaboom, Shadoh)


I've never said this out loud, and I know it's kinda sad, but this place felt like home the second I joined up. This place gave me somewhere to go where I felt I belonged during my less than amazing teenage years. I will never outgrow my need to glitch, and who knows, maybe this isn't the end... Perhaps this is only the beginning of something new. To Duke, and to everyone who's ever posted here(minus the bots who posted porn that one time), thank you. You're all awesome.

I said I wouldn't cry! :'(
