That's easy... I fear maps that have lots of stairs and/or projecting thingies that you catch on when running backwards (read as: CTF-Command and others). Man, I absolutely HATE it when I'm running backwards with an attacker in tow, dodging and firing like mad, and then WHAM, I hook up on a stoopid projecting ledge or light. There's nothing worse than that sinking feeling as you try to frantically un-hook yourself as the Rocket or ASMD ball comes drifting your way... :(

When i play UT, and hear the sound of the rocketlauncher loading of someone else, i allway's get extra itchy, ready to dodge a load of 6 incoming missles.
Somehow i hate that sound.

I was wondering do you have more sound like this where you get itchy off, or am i the only geek here ;)

I'm afraid of two things in UT. Both are water-related.

The first water-related UT thing I'm afraid of is the water in Koos Galleon. It's like...gravitationally incorrect. :)

The second water-related UT thing I'm afraid of is the acid water in one of the Inoxx maps (you know which one I'm talking about). It, too, is gravitationally incorrect. :)

Dopefish, WTF are you on about?

I'm scared of

1. the indignity of losing to my brother - he's not bad, just the sibling rivalry thing
2. running backwards trying to get those combos going only to hit a wall and get pulverised by an RL.

the worst sound that scares me is....THE RIPPER, ok, it doesnt seem so bad. But when you are standing somwhere offguard and you hear a realy sharp disc coming at you...and misses..but then riochets and gets you in the neck...nothing beats that sound/feeling..
first relief because it missed, then POW! and you can almost hear the other player saying -fooled you

23rd May 2000, 10:33 AM
Inflictor...notice how those water types I mentioned are...oh, I don't know...a little harder to get out of than normal water? Of course, you can't possibly get out of the Koos Galleon water, but it should be possible to get out of the (Inoxx map metioned) water.

The following sound don't realy scare me, but they put me in the full alert mode with very very itchy fingers!

1) Reedemer whistle
2) Invis. thing (that means someone got it and they are near by
3) Quad amp and shock rifle sound ==> You hear it, you see it, you die!

Ofcourse it does not help to have 4 speaker surround sound! My whole house shakes when the combo goes off!

...when I'm about to cap a flag, and I'm fighting my way through some tough opponents, then suddenly I pass wind and it's really really stinky and I can't get up and move away from the keyboard and I don't know whether I'll just say to hell with it and drop the flag or fight through the smell.

What scares me the most is when your in a clan match and your offense has the flag with the score tied 1vs1. His back up has been killed by the 2 in pursuit of the flag carrier and your his only hope. You shoot a secondary shock ball and watch as it makes its way towards the flag chasers. Will it make it in time? Is my aim off? what if i knock the carrier off the ledge? Things go racing through your head a mile a minute while your heart pounds. You shoot the primary fire and the shock combo explodes.... "Double Kill" and your mind has been soothed.
Im sure others have felt this :).

The Things That Scare Me In UT

* Respawning somewhere on a CTF map and not being able to find my way back to the flag room

* The sight of an opponent charging at me right after I hear the sound of the Keg O Health, Sheild Belt, and Damage Amp.....and I've got an enforcer

*Running over a redeemer spawn spot during a firefight right as it spawns and all of a sudden seeing it appear on my screen and realising I have the fire button pressed

* The Goo Room on Hyperblast

* The sight of Mr Smallberries translocating into my flag room

What scares me is that no matter how low I set the detail, and even in single player games, I can't get more than a maximum of 25fps out of UT.

What pisses me off the most is when my father starts b*tching away at me, because he never does it while I'm IRC chatting, but only in the midst of a game, or sometimes from the very start. Always crap about how I'm destroying the family by doing this, and how I've poisoned my sisters' minds by introducing them to UT, etc., about how PC games are evil and I'm such a dirty bastard for playing them, etc. etc. etc.

The worst part is that he never stops until the game is over. He can talk trash for hours, and he can easily drag it over several games. Really drives me nuts.

I used to have the fear of miniguns, because Voyd would tear me up with 'em. After weeks of running away from anyone with a mini, I realized that most people aren't very good with it. BTW, it now takes Voyd 3-4 seconds to mini me in 1v1, whereas it used to take 1-2 seconds :).

Nearly getting deafened one time. I had got this thing that moves the stuff from the CD onto your hard drive so u can play a game without the CD. Anyhow when I did that the music in UT seemed to stop working but it was because the defualt CD drive for music was not the actual CD drive that had the UT CD in it. I eventually figured it out so I loaded up UT again but I forgot that I had my volume up full so when the music started my head nearly exploded it was so loud.

Also running the tremor mutuator scares me cos it never works!
