    Favorite UT Moment?

    Hi folks,
    In all the excitement of the announcement, it's hard not to remember my favorite moments playing UT. I figured we could share, whether it was maps, modes, mods, a specific match, or frag. One of mine would be playing seemingly endless matches in CTF-TwinValley with my college roommates. We played it enough that we started developing strategies on a whiteboard for matches against other rival dorm rooms.

      I played UT2004 CTF competitively, and i've just got a million great stories to tell!

      It's mostly the suspense, the suspense I havent experienced in any multiplayer game since. I loved how the competitive scene easily adapted to community made maps. I absolutely loved IRC pickup channels! Had the best matches ever.

        Flying around in Hall of Giants with the Mr Pants Excessive Overkill mod.

        And crushing Xan's winning streak of course.

          A Clanbase (or possibly Jolt...time has passed) 5v5 CTF ladder match, drawing 4-4 with the ten second countdown just starting on LavaGiant and me just breaking through the central wall carrying the flag - cue the greatest piston jump of all time to fling me over the wall of my base from a ridiculous distance. Just as I land on our flag pole, with 2 seconds remaining, my team return our flag allowing us to win 5-4 with literally 1 second remaining.

          Lovely.

              Just this past year discovering that I could play UT99 from a USB flash drive at a public terminal.

                Very generally, my 2 favorite "moments" in any of the Unreal Tournament games(although Unreal is my favorite):

                -The amazement/awe from experiencing UT2003 when it first came out, at my best friend's house; that sleek, sexy sci-fi blue menu screen, that unforgettably in-your-face menu action music, and of course the brand new sound & graphics that put the Dell to it's knees.

                -The experience of UT; that unique, powerful instagib, the infinite list of truly amazing maps, bucketloads of the funnest mutators, hilarious skins & voice packs, incredibly audacious Total Conversions...pretty much *anything* UT; you name it.

                    WOO! The community I played on had this version of the mod. Pretty much all EO weapons except sniper and the game speed with everything else being vanilla. So self damage on (no boosting), original health, etc made the game tons more faster.

                        Everytime when I was playing with my classmates during the breaks + all the planning before we played against the other class...... it was an epic time

                          A recent one in UT99 was me shooting a guy with a pistol at the same time he was shooting a redeemer, resulting in a redeemer exploding in his face . Lol'd hard. The match happened to be a duel in some redeemer arena map (can't remember the name), i was winning but then my connection died. A sad ending.

                            Smacking a Raptor and a Cicada out of the air with a pair of completely random unaimed SPMA direct hits (ONS-Adara). Couldn't convince anyone that I wasn't cheating though, but I was pleased with my "Hahaha, oh Duuuuuude!" moment.

                              20 seconds before the match ended in a very intense 2-1 (we were the ones losing) VCTF-Suspense LAN game, our flag carrier was just reaching the base (right underneath the Manta spawnpoint) when a Raptor, which spawned like 5 seconds beforehand, managed to get to our base and crush him, along with everyone else who came to assist. When the announcer announced "Red flag returned", the entire room was cheering (especially the guy who pulled it off, he nearly tore his headphone cable right out)! 12 players felt like a thousand
