The Tale of 59

From Guillermo Vilas’ 46 straight matches in 1977, to the 21 games in a row won by the New England Patriots, winning streaks have always drawn the fiercest battles between the ones chasing history and those who wish to end it.

All Stars made their own mark in that immeasurable list of renowned victories and infamous defeats when we triumphed over Alliance Rainbow for our 59 consecutive win. Our mission to conquer commenced on February 15, 2011 and lasted until May 14 of the same year, a period of relentless domination.

In that span we defeated such behemoths as Infected With Skill and Koopa Clan—close encounters and demolitions alike. Our teamwork and Wi-Fi skills reached preternatural levels: we were one flawless and powerful machine moving fearlessly through the castles of our adversaries and claiming their silk-lined thrones, their proud crowns. All Stars finally reached their full potential—the birth of the Crimson King— and we no longer knew how to lose.

Then came the 60th war in our reign. It was for the World Clan League and against a very old rival of ours: Koopa Clan. These great racers had already given us difficult challenges—we had beaten them four times in our streak before this encounter—so we understood the magnitude of the match. We marched in wounded but confident—we did not have our strongest lineup—and the promises were fulfilled as it was a mighty fight until the very end. From bomb snipes and thundercloud struggles, to third lap finishes of heart-wrenching results and significance, the war was the epitome of intensity.

When the dust finally settled we stood defeated.

So our streak met its end, and we simply moved on. We did not dwell on it lest it would lead us into Discordia. But we do take much from this accomplishment as it has allowed All Stars to transcend into a higher plane and become the true sovereign of Mario Kart.

Tiger against Tiger

A clash of preternatural forces; the proud French, the vain Americans. We knew this war might be our primary obstacle in our road to the perfect season, and the omen spoke truth. Nerves plagued the first Grand Prix; we surrendered it with a series of uncharacteristic errors from our part and great strategic plays from Koopa Clan.

On the second Grand Prix, All Stars naturally struck back with our trademark frontrunning and teamwork. I thought we had finally crushed ĸ¢ mentally, but I was utterly wrong: Third Grand Prix clearly illustrated that they are made of steel and proved to be a bloody battle until the very end. We were down thirteen points going into last race, and we felt the gargantuan pressure of our victory streak deep within ourselves—an endeavor of ice. Still, we managed to control the intense tension long enough to triumph over this talented opponent in a finale worthy of television.

A Clichéd War

Sunday, April 3, 2011

An eternal thunderstorm that plagued our every race… This war felt like a tedious and painful chore, the kind of activity saved solely for the punishment of bad-mannered children. We have outgrown the population. No longer do encounters ignite passion within us, or even evoke the lustful competitiveness we used to strive on, crave. Conformity has claimed us.

I feel the passage of time—a savage wind lashing at my face—and it is neither invigorating nor kind. Soon we will turn to stone only to be admired from afar, to be remembered.

All Stars λ★ 488  vs  Meteor M» 144

Notes: Meteor was penalized with 100 points because they trolled us on BC3—Venom, Jerk and I—and on DKJP—Larry, Rage, Jerk and I.

The Return of ßrendan

ßrendan played his first war in his return to Mario Kart Wii last night. He did remarkably well even though he had never voice chatted before—most have problems adjusting to talking and racing at the same time—exhibiting the talent that propelled his name into Olympus. I regrettably could not record the match because I was streaming in the call to Holic.

All Stars looks forward to many more encounters where we can unleash this beast to feast upon the unfortunate opponents that cross our path.
