I'd just like to take a moment of your time to celebrate a momentous
occasion (for me, anyway).

Last night I scored my first "Godlike" and my first (and probably last)
"Wicked Sick" while playing UT2004 DeathMatch in the Plunge map on a public
server with 19 other fraggers. Ended up with 42 frags and 2 deaths (mostly
with the shock rifle and flak cannon). And STILL got beat by PEE_NUTZ, who
had 50 kills and 40 deaths.

But, in spite of the loss, I found it supremely satisfying.

I know this probably isn't a big deal to a lot of you jokers... but it was
pretty cool for me, since I usually find myself out-gunned, out-dodged, and
out-fragged.

A story of hope for us old folks*...

*Defined, in this context, as fraggers who are 40+.

Good stuff SomeOldDude!
Another player recently asked me what I was doing there, as "computer
games are for young people". I was determined to outscore him after he
said that.... I kicked his arse! Now he says Hi when he sees me :)

I think that godlike and wicked sick comes with age. I dont have any yet and
I am 3 years younger (or so) then you guys.
It must be the expirence that counts.

When you are dead then then I am better :-)

Ohhh boy it's good to hear that will keep my spirit up for some months.....
I was starting to think I am too old for this gaming, and should start
looking at chess or bridge like other oldies...

Thanks for sharing your accomplishment - keep it up.

We're the ol'boys club

"Age will prevail"

Let's show those teens that once in a while they must respect the
experience. Game on for many hours so that it's way past their bed-time -
then we can out frag them :-)))

Us "old folks" usually have an advantage in being able to afford the best

Boys never grow up. They just get better toys. Favourite saying

Nice one 'Dude. I got Wicked Sick against (skilled) bots last night (not
the same thing I know) and took several screenshots. I was looking forward
to viewing them until I realised that my Limited User account had no write
permissions to the UT2004/ScreenShots directory.

Bugger.
