Has anyone else tried this?

I'm currently tied for 165th position on the 5-6 player map (we did it with 6 players) with a time of 10:03.

With 5 players I've done 5-6 in 11:13.

If anyone is interested in having a game, feel free to send me a tell.

I would really like to go below 8 minutes.

What's the gameplay like?

It's like a puzzle strategy game.

Completing the mission within the time limit is pretty easy and can generally be done after 1 or 2 tries if you're not a complete idiot (I did it on my 4th try because I didn't realise the game doesn't pause when you hit escape).

The real fun is in trying to work out the quickest and most efficient way to acheive the objective.

The top time for the 6 man mission is currenty 7 minutes and 48 seconds I think.

Doing it the way I've been doing it, even if everyone performs perfectly, I doubt you could get below 8 minutes.

So obviously the people who did it in 7m48sec have done something very clever.

It's a game that makes you think more than anything.

Team work and communication is an absolute must.

6 people who go out and do their own thing without communicating are certain to fail (or at least get very poor times), but as little as 2 people working well together on the 6 man mission can complete it within the 25 minutes.
