Have you ever had just a superb moment on the server? One that was etched in to your memory forever? For me there has been one particularly outstanding moment, a month or two ago. Thankfully I stored the experience in my own private journal, and I now have the opportunity to share my overdramatized re-telling of it.

I present to you "I'm Going To My Dad's Place Soon So I can't Play On The Server But I Can Make Some Forum Posts Before I Go" by Me. A true story.

...Acually it's called "An Unreal Moment" by Cloud34. Still a true story. I'll paste my journal entry, just with some slight splaleeeling, (spelling), swear removal (I like swearing ), and general editing modifications.

I must commit a recent event to an electronic medium before it fades too much with memory, else it will be lost forever. Tonight I had a very good moment playing Unreal Tournament 2004.

I was playing on Dru and Shan's server like I usually do. The map was 1on1DM-Serpentine or something like that. I joined the game a bit late, so the game was far in to the waves. The server was packed with about 18ish people. The map was a small map, as all 1 on 1 maps are, so with 18ish people and a dozen monsters it was quite... busy. I grabbed what weapons I could and I headed up to the middle where I thought I could snipe the enemy with some of my team mates in general safety. The plan more or less worked until near the end of the wave, where the monsters caught on and went up to where I was and mutilated me and some of my teammates.

The next wave started and I saught out a nearby hiding place, as I wanted to wait out the next wave. I found a pillar near by and crouched behind it, making sure the enemy couldn't see me. They couldn't, but just barely. I waited, and I could hear the sounds of battle all around me. A couple times someone would duck in behind the pillar with me, but because I was taking up the only good spot, they couldn't hide as well so the enemies would still see them and kill them. Not my fault. But anyways, the numbers of players still alive dwindled and dwindled. Then all of a sudden I was the last one left. I pulled up the player list for the server; everyone was OUT except for me (at the bottom of the scoreboard.) I knew I could wait out the mosnters, due to their ultimately flawed A.I. they would never "find" me, and they should eventually despawn after several minutes. But some umpteen other people were waiting on ME, and I was giving a boring show. The best entertainment I could give was to shake my booty.

I figured that I would instead go out in a blaze of glory, I didn't expect to last more than a couple seconds. I get up, pull out my translocater, take a breath, and I BOLT. Immediatly the monsters honed in on my moving figure and started firing, I heard dozens of BOOM BOOM BOOM sounds sounding all at the same time, almost deafening as I could hear my earphones rattling from the vibrations. My andrenline starts pumping and I call on the skills I hot gotten from the Digital Samurai server, from Hellblazer in particular, and started quickly dodging with my translocater, popping here and there in a zig zag pattern. I know that my translocater has a limited amount of translocations before it runs out and hast to recharge. I was in no position to wait for it to recharge

It was then I remembered my previous refuge from the wave before, in the middle in between the bottom and the top of the map. It's a hallway that goes around the short map, but the wall facing the inside of the map, where all the monsters are, there is a crack that runs along with the entire wall that allows you to snipe the middle, or the middle to snipe you. I figured what the heck, my trans was going to run out of juice and I would be [expletive deleted] anyways. So I hop on the ramp, that was nearby and and I go up to where I knew would be my last stand.

If any monster hadn't seen me and started shooting at me me before, they started right at that moment. BOOM BOOM BOOM, the deafening sound of a dozen brutes firing their dual rocket lauchers at my moving figure reminded me of my mortality. I ran down the hallway, the sound staying constant. I take a quck glance at the chat going on in the bottom left of the screen, and was pleased that the other players were enjoying my plight quite thoroughly. I run around more corners, going in a cricle, missles hitting just behind me. The brutes weren't smart enought to aim ahead to where I was going to be by the time their missles reached me, so as long I kept moving they would be hard pressed to hit me.

I kept running in cricles, too afraid to pause for even an instant. I used my trans to try to stay ahead of the wall of rockets that was slowly gaining on me. After half a dozen laps or so, I realized I could do this indefinatly. But I didn't wan't to keep everyone waiting. I stopped and turned around. I saw the hall compeltely distorted by explosions, a sight that was screenshotted by my brain and has taken up permanent residence in my noggen.

Then I made a snap decision. I would toss my translocater pod across the line of fire, and trans accross at the last second to try to throw off the brutes. This could give my the edge I needed to pick off the brutes one by one. The instant I threw my pod I knew I had made a critical error. It wasn't too late. Knowing would would happen if I pressed the tranlocation key on my mouse, I faced a dilemma. There is a saying that "The show must go on" but I knew the show I put on would get monotnous quickly. Barely a fraction of a second passed; I had made my decision

My avatar exploded in a shower of body parts, the game over. I smiled, looking at the chat. My performance was well recieved.

I think I got out all the swears and the like.

Anyone else got some stories from the server they would like to share?

strange thing is, i remember that one....there were so many rockets you couldnt turn around or stop at all. and man was it loud. but that doesnt make it not weird that you have a diary. or that you write about computer games in it.

I had a fun one recently. It was one of the recent additions (one of the sHoK maps) and someone said player xxxx, quit shield gunning players off of the shelf.

I was nearby the shelf so I transed up there to see what was going on. I hadn't been on the shelf 2 seconds before the player bonked me with the shield gun. Hello clueless!

The fundamental problem is this: The first word we learn as children is NO. From that point forward society teaches women that saying no isn't polite, and society teaches men to respect those who wont take no for an answer.

I remember this one time, I had signed on and was playing late at night. A couple of high level players were online and were kicking trash as always. Wave 14 comes around. rocks are flying every whihc way but loose. Suddenly I was the only one left alive. taking clues from a certain player whose name comes from a lizard that blends in with its environment, I switched to shock rifle and ducked behind cover. After what felt like an eternity of bouncing, rock dodging and near misses, the last titan clutched his chest in agony and fell over.

I pushed back from the keyboard in disbelief. On the high waves, the taco dies, this is the way of things, karma, fate, whatever you want to call it. Yet somehow, the fates had been thwarted, hot sauce and sour cream pulsed through my veins, at least until five warlords had me cornered. Then i became a Chimichanga.

Anyway thats my anti climactic story.
