[TF2] First Hale's Own Strange!

Hi guys! It has been quite a while since my last Team Fortress 2-related blogpost.
Just a few minutes ago, I reached my first Hale's Own Strange weapon!

It's the Grenade Launcher for the Demoman class, that (Strange-variant) one I've been using for several years now. I traded it back when the Salvaged Crate 30 was still available in-game, and it was also my very first Strange-variant weapon I traded for in the game. Shortly after, I got my Ullapool Caber, but that will be for another post to talk about.

Strange-variant weapons in Team Fortress 2 track specific stats while using them. Occassionally they "Rank Up" after a fixed amount of kills (some weapons track different stats in order to Rank Up*), with Hale's Own being the last rank up after defeating 8500 (!) players. Extra counters (such as buildings destroyed, total damage dealt, ect) have been added much later, hence why some of my counters are far behind the kill counter.

The next one that will probably reach Hale's Own will be my Stickybomb Launcher, but that might take a while...
That's it for now guys, until next post!

[YT] 6.000.000 total upload views! First 4.000.000 viewed video!

Sup guys! Recently we have reached a total of 6.000.000 (!) views on our entire Youtube channel. It took roughly only 100 days between this milestone and the previous, which is incredible!

We also reached our first 4.000.000 viewed video. It's Mario Party 7 - All Mini-Games! What a surprise! - No it just isn't. It was expected to happen eventually, especially if this is still our most strongest growing video for nearly two years... Though, talking about growth...

Kirby's Return to Dreamland - All Mini/Main/EX Bosses actually surprised us a lot! We didn't expect it to exceed the growth per month of Donkey Kong 64 - All main bosses and Super Smash Bros Brawl - 100% Subspace Emissary. In addition, it's strong growing started in just a handful of weeks, unlike the latter (which took several months). It's hard to believe that this video has more than twice the growth of both the Donkey Kong 64 and Smash Bros Brawl videos together... and it's still growing every day. If the current growth stays consistent, it will probably reach 100.000 views at the start of May... incredible!

That's it for now, until next post!

[EMS] Inner Ability Progress - 1/3rd Completion

Sup guys! It has been a slight while since my last update about my Inner Ability progress after I obtained the Legendary-ranked Ability last Valentinesday.

Yesterday I managed to obtain one of the first Inner Ability lines which I want to keep - I didn't blog yesterday because Luxatus and I have a strict policy of not posting during April's Fools. It's the only "official" Rayque3-holiday we have the entire year, consider we even have uploaded content on our relatives/own birthdays and during the Winter holidays as well. That aside, let's get back on subject.

[EMS] I just found this from the Elite Boss Bonus Stage...

Woah, that is quite some Additional Options... 90 STR? Dang... Imagine what the Item Levels may wield, so getting to 100 STR is quite plausable! I'll be using this on Zayque, I think.
That's it for now, see you again next post!

[YT] 6000 Subs!

Woah, I've been sleeping. Perhaps I've been playing too much MapleStory Europe for the Night Walker Skill Link and Borderlands 2 with Lux this weekend and not paying enough attention to the subscriber count. It seems we have hit 6000 subscribers two days ago!

This is another great milestone for the Rayque3 Staff! It's great to see that our dedicated time and effort is finally paying off after all those years. It's hard to express how much of an achievement it might feel for us.

On Youtube we all often see huge numbers in views and subscriber counts. It's easy to get spoiled by large numbers on any digital format. But imagine that when we started in the summer of 2008, up to the spring of 2013, we only had four hundred subscribers. Four hundred is a lot, but consider in just two years our growth has been crazy for our standards. Going from 400 to 6000 in just two years? Imaging having six thousand LEGO® minifigures on a table, and you (as a minifigure as well) standing next to that crowd. Add the fact that when we started in 2008 we had no clue how our channel would've become in seven years.

For all the new subscribers on our channel, welcome to the Rayque3 Channel! Thank you for clicking that subscribe button and hopefully you'll enjoy our content. More is always on the way, so stay tuned!
