Not long ago, I started thinking about all the gaming I did in the past. My first real internet game I started playing was Descent 2 and that was over Kali and Kahn, which were IPX/SPX to TCP/IP conversion software utilities. I had a blast playing these games. When I started playing Descent 2, I played with a person by the name of Aaronb, who happened to be probably the best player I have ever played against. Others such as Scoundrl, Ender, Karash, Pooterman, and the list goes on and on were great people to play against. I was Nightfall but I doubt anyone really remembers me. These players were in the top 25 of the official descent ladder. The highest I ever made it was 26 I believe. I wasn’t good enough to beat the best, but it was still fun to play with all these great players. Every other day, Aaronb would get a group together to play and it would involve just all of us dukeing it out for fun.
I have a lot of fond memories of these games so I sometimes wonder what happened to these players. They were great people to play against and it was a great ladder to be a member of. I had so much fun.
Times change though and so do priorities I suppose. I can still miss it though. 🙂
