    So wait, your first game ever you try to command, without any idea how the game works, what the map is like, or even what gamemode you were in?

    First game was on eclipse one day after release. Brittish server and mad lag, five other people playing. We all followed orders as marine and won the game, and since everyone was new, my crappy aim worked just fine. Ahh, the days when games were decided by the commanders' willingness of dropping RTs.

    first impression: at my friends house sometime in winter 2003. look a bit too strange for my taste, so i never dloaded 1.04. how i regret being so stupid <!--emo&:(--><img src='' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='sad.gif' /><!--endemo-->

    first actual game: about two days after 2.0 release, ns_caged. joined the game when we were turtled up in central processing. i ran off and got killed by a skulk, and been hooked up to the game ever since.

    My first game was eclipse as alien, the very day NS came out. I dont remember much except it being a very large and confusing map and being stuck in CC as a gorge wondering how the marines were shooting really powerful blasts through walls.

    Actually first time i played ns was 98....

    Don`t just yet start flaming because it was q2 mod called "gloom"

    <a href='' target='_blank'></a>

    It had really same idea alines vs marines

    At 2000 gloom started fading and i heard about ns so I was suprisingly familiar with the surround immediatly.

    Quite soon i ended to the chair and started to look the game 90% from up angle...

    My most early memory hmmm....

    Lets say my best....

    I Used the fast hmg/lvl3 wep at 1.04!

    I was so suprised when it came very popular at 2.0

    Aliens could only win by skulk rush at the beginning.

    My first game I played was at my friend's house where I went alien becuase I was like, "cool, aliens, I wanna kill Gordon Freeman." I was such a noob <!--emo&:D--><img src='' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' /><!--endemo--> but I got cloaking as a skulk. I wandered into this room dropping from a ladder to see 3 marines. I stood still ammediately to cloak. I stayed there for like 20 minutes waiting for the best time to move. Another skulk wandered in...the marines missed him and I got killed in the crossfire...he died right after. That room turned out to be Sewer hive of ns_caged. The next game I played was on ns_bast. I was so damn lost I went in a circle 5 times before I ran into a pack of marines and died.

    First few days 2.0 came out I can remember looking at the picture on the armslab and wondering when my pistol was gonna get a scope on it. I kept wondering how the commander was chosen, and WTH was a welder? Most games as alien I would just find some random hallway and begin laming, oblivious to our team being just destroyed.

    My first impression of this game was:


    And then I started playing it religiously, and it has all progressed from there.

    I was walking down a long narrow street when suddenely these dark figures lunged out at me and started to attack me. Very traumatic.

    Wait... No sorry that happened after a night on the town.

    Lets see , when 1.0 was first released... go into the game and joined marines.

    Soon noticed it was point and click like TFC but with aliens ... many kills after that.

    I thought it was a copy of AvP2 at first.

    My first experience of NS was somewhere around 1.04. I were a marine running towards Station Alpha RT, I didn't know locations, but I kept going after anohter marine.

    Suddenly skulks drop from ceiling and waste us in seconds. I gasp in horror at my seat. This isn't like other FPS-games! Angered by incident I rush back looking at the ceiling forgetting to look around corners. Suddenly I am face to face some giant black creature that slashes me to pieces.

    At that moment I realized that this game cannot be won without tactics.
