Timeline & History

The following is somewhat a work in progress. I am going to detail my online career to the best of my memory. I’ll have what time frame, which game, and the characters I played. I’ll also try and detail any significant spin offs or events that happened while playing.

1994-1996

DOOM 1 & 2 . Heretic . Hexen . Duke Nukem 3D . Rise of The Triad

Dial-Up was still king, and there were not many internet providers in our area. ID Software had a simulated LAN environment which you could dial-up into. It was called DWANGO and the nearest Dial-up number for me was in Texas, several states away.

I figured I would face my mothers wrath and dial in long distance to try my hand at playing DOOM 2 online. I figured I was pretty good, but when I arrived in the lobby no one was really playing. I asked if anyone wanted to play, a guy named Thresh responded “I will!” We joined in the game while everyone snickered to themselves.

I got in and was summarily destroyed by this person, it was an embarrassing score of something like 40 to 2. I left dejected and didn’t play online there again. However I found out years later that this guy was some sort of legend in the FPS game world. I then felt honored to have been fragged so hard by him.
