My first Lan-Pary was at an invitation of a friend. 'hey, you might like this, check it out'. I don't even remember if I was at the friend's PC or actually bothered having my own brought there... Either way, shortly after it started (most systems hooked up in to the network) I was invited for a friendly UT03 match. My first contact with UT, really. The match starts, and I fiddle around with my one-shot-isnta-death pistol. I was oblivious of what it did. But I ran out in to the open footbal-field, pointed ad the tiny pixel at my screen and shot. Just out of fun. And what do I hear?
Yeah. My first shot in UT03 was a headshot. At a tiny pixel. And it didn't get better. The guy that invited me strted to get frustrated. He could barely land any kills on me. I kept getting him before he could even 'think' of aiming at me. Then he got a friend to join him. But I still pwned them utterly. Then a third friend jumped in to his team. Heh. And ganging up on me, I got frustrated myself... But I left quite an impression. And no one believed I never had played UT03 before that....
