Top-one, Nice-one (LAN)

Just to say Kudos to Rasher and the crew for a gr8 LAN.

I dunno about others but I really liked the Tourney's which were organised, and only wished I could have stayed till Sunday and had more of em.

Highlights for me include, sniping 30 people on DOD with 50 rounds of ammo, then on the next map getting taken out by Glydwr’s heavy each time I try to find a sniping spot :-)… seeing only a bief flash as the bullets surround me. Playing AVP2 for the first time, half tired and with the sound turned full-up…. Woke me up REALLY fast. Finding Hairy’s Burgers almost as good as Lynda’s ;-)

K well see you all online, an maybe for the next one :-)

Sweet lan gents, nice to finally meet Gambiatch0r Bob, Blind, Bona, Gibbon top blokes :]

Thanks to Hairy, Linda and the woman who was laughing at me for holding a conversation with Jess for the food (didnt catch your name, sorry!) i certainly didnt stave.

Also kudos to Rasher, Fish, and Crispy for following Gaza into the toilets and giving him a real lan baptisim by fire

I think thats about it, ill reply later when i remember what i was actually going to say.

Yeah, it was great fun, thank you thank you thank you.

Highlights for me:

Clan Cultiv8 - We spaded out the weeds in dod (our team mates).

On one map, dunno it's name, but it had a central yard area with many sniper sports, I remember neil telling me to follow him to this wikkid spot, so I ran after him for ages, to find a quality sniper spot, apart from, we had spades

I remember coming up behind a prone Blind sniping, and just standing behind him with my spade for ages before ending him

I also remember tking boff accidently (It was I swear) and then changing my name quickly to avoid the wrath.

Also, Verty ended me before I got a chance to spade him

The CS tourney was nice, apart from we only got 1 match, and it was against xVvVx - so that was us out.

Rally masters was great fun, especially the lobby - "A/S/L anyone"?"

and also, Gambit, Neil, Cybex and myself were witness to some 'odd' videos :S

Low points were:

My 40gig hard drive dying on the sunday, and me proceeding to loose a hell of a lot of stuff :/

Oh well, is it a real lan without someone suffering hardware damage?

Clan [S_Club], ph34r our spammy binds...

"Hannah likes it in the ass"
"Rachel says: Don`t pay for sex"
etc...

Wicked LAN, thanks a lot to all the organizers, wp hairy in the kitchen

Good to finally meet Shox in person and to get owned by [xVvVx], almost bought a tear to the eye for the nostalgia.

[Cultiv8]`s uber TKing in DoD, rofl, shame i forgot to demo me TKing Blind in the head with mah spade (sorry Losty)

Kyle, Shox and myself starting HL DM and then getting a full server, now that rocked big ones

And of course daRude and the dunce hat... roflmao.

and Helta actually saying "lol" out loud and then realising how funny it sounded.

Loads more happened but i cant remember atm, so once again thanks alot rash + co for a blinder.

[S_Club]Tina - "not as pretty as Rachel but can shoot a AWP!"

TOP LAN


(as always)


sorry I was a bit late.


A big thank you for the food crew (left a message on the MainBoard)


finally got to see some more faces to Handles. (we should have a post your pick biography thing going on)

I got to abuse Verti and Crispy face to face, which is a laugh.

and Rasher gave me a *hug*.

was that Helta Tk'ing me with a spade?
I assure everyone that was NO accident =)
once okay, maybe.
three times is a bit excessive. PLUS on of third time he tracked me down half the map =) through all these windy routes through broken house accros a battlefield onto a sniper spot with a (whoosh whoosh whoosh) sound behind me.
a whole minute later I stopped when I got to the good sniper spot and the sounds went (whoosh whoosh thud) that one I did laugh at. although quite annoyed but that has to be the most persisant TK with a melee weapon I have ever seen

The SClub crew was like this:


Neilio/Necr0 = Rachel
Me = Hannah
Cybex = Bradders
Gambit = Tina
Bobster = Jo


Bradders abused Rally masters so bad

I've gotta say however, I thorght the best bind was mine - "Hannah Says, Is it REALLY supposed to go in there?"


Oh and boff, the first time was an honest accident, I dont actually remember pressing fire, but you were so verbally annoyed by it, I persisted in following up, you damn weed

And yes, I said lol out loud

"OH GOD, THE QUAD HAS RESPAWNED, OH, I'M GETTING SO HOT, OHHHHH!"

hehe

Best lan i've ever been to by far, and i think it will be hard to beat, shame about your hard drive helta, same thing happened to my 40gb IBM deskstar 60GXP a couple of weeks ago.
You never kno how much stuff u got till u lose it
-Slagging off DaRude in the Flashpoint lobby, quoting things like:
"The hills are alive with the sound of comression"
"Compression, Compression, My kingdom for Compression"
-Cooling Trepkkos's overheating hard-drives with coca-cola cans (hope there were pictures taken of that)

Boff, you should be thankfull you were late, sitting next to DaRude and Brahn, not exactly something to be relished.

I REALLY wouldn't count on it, what happened with mine, was the OS stared getting unstable, then it refused to boot the OS, and even if i tried to read from it, when configured as a slave drive it just made v. quiet noises, instead of its ushual clicks., data came thru VERY slowly, if at all.
All IBM Deskstar 60GXP users, i advise you that you make sure your data is backed up ASAP.
