Lost connection to host ruins world record Shangri La attempt

Yesterday we asked you what round you had managed to reach on the new Shangri La zombies map for Call of Duty: Black Ops, the general feeling seems to be that if you surpass round 30 you are doing pretty well and your strategy seems to be working, but imagine reaching level 60 only for your game to be ruined by your internet connection.

Recently this happened to someone who is regarded as one of the most highly rated zombies players out there, he goes by the name of TheRelaxingEnd and he frequently shares videos on his YouTube account, it is well-worth subscribing to his channel via this link, at the end of this post we have embedded one of his most recent videos which is titled “Shangri-La – Round 60 – High Round Strategy – RelaxingEnd & ChristianR87 – Black Ops Zombies”.

In the video we are told about TheRelaxingEnd’s strategy which he used with another gamer called ChristianR87, here both players are doing very well and The RelaxingEnd tends to gather up the zombies by running around near to where the MPL is whilst the other player attracts more zombies to the herd, once a big enough group gathers you simply shoot your Pack-a-Punched 31-79 JGb215 gun aka “The Fractalizer” to shrink the zombies and then he simply finished them off with the Ray Gun. The embedded video clearly shows that the strategy works pretty well, however just as the round 67 world record was in sight the world record attempt disconnected with an error which read “Lost connection to host”, we are assured that this was caused by TheRelaxingEnd’s ISP and nothing to do with Xbox Live.

To give you can idea of the effort players players went to we are told that they played for between 12 and 15 hours and early in the video you can see that they racked up well over 13,000 kills. We are not sure whether TheRelaxingEnd we will reattempt to break the world record, however it does seem as if he has lost all faith in his internet provider.

Previously we have seen TheRelaxingEnd and ChristianR87 do extremely well on other zombies maps such as Ascension, Shi No Numa, Der Riese and Call of the Dead and times they held world records on these maps, as you can see they like doing well on zombies, therefore we wouldn’t be too surprised if they reattempt to break the Shangri La world record in the future.

If and when they break the world record we will keep you posted, below we have embedded the video which introduces you to a great strategy, did it help you to reach a higher round?
