I am currently retired from competitive gaming and entering my 4th year in Electrical Engineering.
I started online PC gaming playing Rainbow Six and R6 Rogue Spear before moving to UT99 when it was released. I then played both for quite a while before hearing about a game called Counter-Strike that was all the rage in online gaming at the time. I went out and bought a copy of HL just for CS and downloaded beta 7.0/7.1 and was a public server hero for about a year before moving on to DoD when it was released. I started playing competitive DoD in early 2001 (beta 1.3b) with TWR. I then moved on to SOE who were the undefeated top UK team, and also top eight in Europe.
The DoD team ruined the game when they released version 1.0 and the only reason I continued to play was because it was fun to play with friends in a top team. After SOE folded there was no reason to continue playing a flawed game and since that coincided with moving into University halls for first year, I quit DoD.
After moving out of halls in my second year I decided to take up competitive CS. It was a large shock going from EuroCup level DoD to newb UK CS to try and get somewhere. The first serious team I joined in CS was M3 where I stayed for a long time. I then moved on to firesomething for the summer and that was great. After fs folded I moved to imagine.
Now Ive retired from competitive CS but I still play Quake 3 Promode for fun.
