5. Five WarCraft III games come to mind. First was a 4v4 that turned into a farm hiding game.
- My team was mostly gone, and I mainly had a level 7 Blademaster who ran around the map and we barely won.
- Rolling human in TfT (my worst race) and seeing that I was against two undead players and an orc. I guessed that one of them was going air and did the completely insane Steam Tank (for rockets), Rifles, and Mortars. I demolished this guys Obsidian Destroyer army and won the game almost outright.
- Running int wyvernn (I believe that was his name), one of the highest ranked RT players in WCIII, I don't even remember whether my team beat him or not, but it was pretty incredible.
- I rolled Undead in 3v3 with two of my online buddies. They didn't do too terribly great. Both of them lost their bases, and one of them had lost their army. I ended up getting to Frost Wyrms and recording 27 hero kills in one game.
- I think with the same group of people, I rolled Orc and my base was attacked before one of my allies had teched Frosties. I gave up my base, TPing over to his, my other ally pulled out of his base as well. My friends couldn't believe that this was a good idea, but they listened because I had played more than they had. I had two wands of illusion which I cast on the one Frost Wyrm that my Undead ally had. Two of the opponents quit outright when they saw the army and we came back to win. It was something great about that game, tactically surrendering your base so you would win. Great stuff!
4. Getting my Thunderfury (The epitome of my WoW experience) - I was really lucky on my bindings drop, and we killed Ragnaros. However, my guild sort of sucked and we couldn't get past Vaelestraz so we bought/traded for the Elementium from another guild. I stayed with that guild until it disbanded/was destroyed by my older brother who G kicked all of the people in it. I used that weapon until Prince Malchezaar.
3. StarCraft 1 Battle.net - Two things, one was the first time I ever won a ladder match. I was so nervous going into it, thinking that this was the big kids league. Also, learning the ropes of WWII - D.I.E., if you all remember that custom game.
2. Descent 1 multiplayer with my brothers and friends. The first multiplayer game I ever played on different computers. We would call the house to do the dial up connection and get disconnected when someone called us, or if we did it wrong, they would get a busy signal and my parents would get mad. My brother and I did Co-Op over P2P while blaring Megadeath and Powerman 5000 on every Saturday morning for a few months. My eldest also snuck it onto my school computers, so while my brother was doing his Eagle Scout project, which was a computer library catalogue, we would take breaks and do 8-player multiplayer.
1. The endless hours on World of WarCraft. I didn't have a summer job, my parents were happy that I would be in the house. I logged a good 250 days of that game. I retired multiple times, including when I would go back to college. I would come back in the summer, or when I didn't have evening opera rehearsals. I do not own MoP because I have graduate school applications and I didn't have enough time to justify the monthly fee. I do love the game, though, and I love that I could play it for twelve hours or more a day for months on end and not get bored of it. Killing a boss for the first time, being in a guild that raided like it was your job. It was just an incredible camaraderie. Met these people in real life in Syracuse and Rochester and Baltimore, and just yesterday I ran Infernal Machine with an Australian who I had been playing WoW with for years. It really was a place for me to go when...I can't believe I'm getting emotional over this, yeah. WoW meant a lot to me over the last seven years. I will probably get MoP over Christmas break when I can appreciate it.
Honorable Mention - I am 24 years old, go to parties and do stuff like that. Over the summer, a group of friends, all of us college grads, my best friend from grade through high school included, all meet up in his basement and play StarCraft II. It used to be StarCraft 1, it still includes SSB Melee. Just a great way to reconnect (and for cheap). His mom even still gets us snacks for our gaming.
