When and how did you find out about GC? And which game did/do you play on? How long have you been gaming on GC overall? I first made my steam account in early 2015 and my first steam game was L4D2. One of my pals recommended this server to me cause she played on it (*cough* Ramen). I was a non-member for about six months before I bought a membership around November - December 2015 and actually started to play. Share about your very first day on GC or just your first month or so, how did it go? Whether good or bad, let’s hear it from you.
My first month on GC was hectic. I played probably four single player campaign games then joined into versus where it was fast-paced and stressful at times. I played under the name Tinky(didn’t care about my name at the time). I remember one time when I joined incapped and Dixie was like “oh my, tinky is incapped” then she laughed cause she couldn’t take my name serious. Also remember getting yelled at by Maestro a lot, which has subsided since I regularly come on once in a while. Tell me about friends you have made while playing our servers and what roles did they have into making you have fun gaming in general.
Didn’t know many people before I started playing so it was a very new environment for me. For that, I rarely played more than once or twice a week. I entered the server at times and one day, someone started talking to me on their mic and eventually added me on steam, along with another buddy. At the time, I was a noob hunter and I sucked at skeeting. I think I had the potential to become a better player, so my buddy had a server that we practiced hunting/skeeting/leveling chargers/ceiling pouncing on. Little did I know, I would become a player who can actually skeet boomers/hunters and hunter/ceiling pounce. So, big thanks to Shaf and Nieve for reaching out and making me a better player. Over time, I met more people on the server and eventually played long enough to see familiar faces on the server. What keeps you coming back to play GC?
The people for sure. It’s always fun and competitive playing with people you know in the server. How has GC affected you as a person, whether big or small, share about it.
If you make a fool out of yourself, life goes on. Remember this well. What are some fond memories that you can recall on while playing games on GC servers? Any funny ones? Any sad ones?
I’ll give ya guys a lot to remember.
I remember deadstopping Elias on map 3 of Dead Air as my first deadstop in GC. His comment was “Alright, I’ll give you that.” . I also remember people would sit on the car on the final map of Dead Center and wait for hunters, me being one of them, before we couldn’t do it anymore. Same with the final map of Carni. I think there was this one time when Carlos argued with me about me switching to his team on the server. That was when I met, Carlos. I remember when I was a noob at tank and on map 2 of parish, the tank spawned and meng told me to break the glass. I had no idea what he meant but then he showed me after I died as a tank to break the glass whenever a tank spawns. Thanks meng. I remember learning how to use an awp after Shaf telling me how to use it. Days later, Elias told me to put the awp away. On map 3 of center, I did a ceiling pounce on someone and nieve was like “ayy lmao” I remember when Ramen was learning hunter(and still learning) and trying to pounce me off buildings. Nope, not today. I remember when ‘Flower’ was the new person in gc, and I told her that she would become a great player someday after playing a lil bit more. She can skeet boomers now o_O. The list can go on but then you’ll be in all day reading my post.
What song reminds you of GC?
Cause everyone wants to be the very best? What is a goal you want to accomplish next year? And for those who play L4D2, what is something you want to work on getting better at in the game?
My inital goal is teaching/encouraging new players (like soosage and ramen) to skeet better and hunt before I retire.
