    I think they've got most of us INFers' number:

    The Exot: While everyone else is playing Counterstrike, Q3 or UT, this guy tries to get others to play games that they never heard about. Action HL, Codename: Eagle and Battlezone 2 are apparently god's gift to gamers, and must be played and adored by every attendant of the LAN party. If everyone's lucky, there will be multiple exot's on a LAN, because then they'll hole up in a corner and stop bothering everyone because they are too busy playing unknown games and feeling 3l33t.

    This reminded me of the first time we played Blood (deathmatch) and I had 70+ kills while guy on the the second place had ~12. Was fun. :) :lol:

    It was like that at the lans I used to co-host (see my sig which I need to change). There was the few peeps who always had to play cs, Me trying everyone to play some other new game like inf. The leechers/file shareres, I was one of them, At least we had our own private switch which was linked up to the main switch. One of the Hosts lil brother was the lil **** except he always wanted to play TFC. the other host was The smoker, except it was fags not weed (well thats whati think anyway). We had 3 peeps in a cs clan, we did have a pron king that turned up for a few lans. We had an audiofile that was getting on our nevers (our being the hosts) playing hardcore rock or what ever you want to call it, so we (the host) brought in our sound systems and blasted the hall with some good 'ol hardhouse. That was about it all the other peeps where guys who wold play nearly anyother game.

    This sounds like me [except for maybe three or four months every two years, when I have enough money to upgrade]:

    10fps: This guy’s machine was cutting edge, but its not 1998 anymore, and the system requirements have changed. You know you are in bad shape if you are grateful for a loaner TNT card. Characteristics: Grateful for anything that can help him increase his frame-rate or resolution. After LAN party has overwhelming urge to buy a new machine.

    My brother when he's playing Infiltration [against bots, nonetheless]:

    Mister Angry: Upon dying, missing a power up, missing a single shot, getting hit with a shot, hearing any sound or thinking of kittens, Mister Angry will put his hands under the desk and launch it into orbit around Neptune. Headphones can often be found embedded 4 feet into walls. He then proceeds to blame his every shortcoming on every other member of his team, his computer, economic conditions in Bolivia and Orville Redenbacher. Characteristics: Every piece of computer equipment is held together by duct tape. Has not blinked in 10 years. Veins on forehead large enough to ski down.

    His favourite victim of abuse is my mouse.

    I must admit, I am the "makes even a sailor blush" kind of LAN-er...but usually only when I do something REALLY stupid for whatever team I'm on. Naturally, when I play infiltration, I'm swearing a lot ;)

    The only game I swear a lot in is Natural Selection. Especially when some moron skulk stands in front of me (the onos) while I'm trying to escape from 5 heavies with around 100hp.

    I usually don't go to lan party's...
    There is this cyber café nearby with a 17 pc lan meant for gaming where I sometimes meet my friends. But for the rest, the closest lan arena is around 50+KM away...
    Unfortunately, the party's held are always themed tournaments...
    Offcourse around the most low-quality suckage games...
    CS, BF, Q3, Serious Sam :)con: ), UT and UT2k3 (always both at the same time)...
    and never any UT mods. I hate Antwerp! :mad:
    I even prefer playing MOHAA or SeriousSam2 with 5 friends above that!

    Funny, that was what playing against LB in INF 2.6 was always like. I would be sneaking up on his spawn with 3 or 4 others, positive that we had him. All of the sudden the guy next to me would drop. Then the two behind me would die in a spectacular hail of shrapnel. I would be left standing there wondering where the hell the rain of fire and brimstone was coming from... :eek:
