FoFo had a great idea. It basically is: tell us your story! We want to know how you knew the game, what happened in those first times and some class of history of yourself. I'll quote FoFo for more exactitude:
|I thought it could be funny to see how you discovered this game , and what you did on armagetron in the past until today, what you played, what you won, etc. |
I'll paste here what I wrote in SP forum... you are next!
I think the way I discovered this game is the weirdest.... I did in school! Let me explain it a lil better...
That was in 2006 is my memory doesn't betray me... my school was selected between a big bunch of others to be one of the first ones having 1 computer every two alumns. And guess what game was in there... Armagetron! the first one! wasn't even the advanced one, it was called Armagetron and my friends and I found it very very fun. We started making local net games during our free hours and I became fastly the best of my class. After a while I decided to try it at home... but when I searched it, what a surprise... there was an advanced one! I was like woooot, i downloaded it and started playng in local games until I found out I could actually play online. At start it was unplayable, everyone used weird words like "lag", "slides" and such things I didn't know shit about (it's remarkable that my english skills were even worse than today's...) so I kind of lost interest, but didn't stop playing.
The servers I used to play the first month were hr, mostly ID HR, what was almost infinite rubber and it was almost impossible to die. There I met an spanish guy, I was so freaked out because he made 2 little binds incredibly fast (and he was even saying his hands were frozen! I was like WTF is this guy kidding me, he is binding too fast!!!). He laughed at me for being a noob and told me about double binding... I found it amazing and i started dominating that thing pretty fast.
One day I was navigating in the server list and a colorful server caught my attention... it was chico's brake boost styball!! the best server ever made and the best arma kind. I became pro there (even though P4, schwuli and others [Legionnaire, ULTRA, subzero] does not want to admit it
)... and of course I had my first fight there... guess against who... "nobody"... or as you know today... schwuli
. I was even more hot blooded that time and schwuli called me noob. Wow the rage was huge and he had the honor of being the first player I hated in this game! Sadly he was right, I was a damn nub.
Again searching on the server list I entered in Fortress Café (do you remember that server.. DO YOU!? best fort server, best memories!). And there I met the second one I hated.... SUBZERO. OMG I really hated him. He tked me, he kicked me, he insulted me and he would never answer me what the fuck was I doing wrong, his words were "GRIND NOOB" and "KICK THIS NOOB", nothing else... no one would explain what grind is in that time so i found out alone. Of course the most i got kicked the most i wanted to join and learn. My error was that i tried not to disturb... and as i didnt understand... i just spllitted at start leaving a long tail in the middle of our zone making us lose everyround XD but i kept wondering why they were kicking me if i just moved away from them ... XD
So hanging around in ctwf I caught the attention of Safariskater (he is our tron father as emmy says, along with emmy and k-yo we all joined at the same time and invited by him. And that's where my tron career actually started). I got tested by the top CTers... I managed to win safariskater and got it close agaisnt owned... everyone saw there was some kind of talent on me so I got in. After that (and changing the camera view [thanks P4 ^^], because I was always using smart cam, and P4 told me about custom cam and it's advantages) I started to grow up as player very very fast. I made my place on the sumo and fortress world and everyone started to know me. Ah when i remember first times I started to pwn, they used to call me lagger every single time I killed one (it annoyed me quite a lot) and when it started to become usual (me killing them) their complains about my ping started to fade.
Another "edge" on my tron life was when I asked for leadership rol in CT. Our Squad Leaders were quite inactive at the time so I offered myself to become one. And I did! From then till now I am team leader along with woned in the CTa team and I won 5 ladles (2 or 3 of them i wasn't leader yet). I don't want to count how many ladle finals did i reach, but I will someday.
Well that's all... I hope it isn't too long or difficult to understand
PS: I forgot to mention I was invited to GP by Alien before I joined CT, it was a great clan, but it wasn't really serious.
