So, my first month in Germany and I already met the German AoE2 community! nC, DEAD, alC and RED, the big German clans were all present. I must say the LAN Part exceeded my expectations by a landslide. The party lasted for 5 days, but the majority of our time was filled by just having fun outside AoC. Sure we had our portion of beating up each other on the screens, but with plenty of darts, table football, ping pong, real football and enough beer to make Oktoberfest look like a feast for possies. Not to forget the barbeque+bonfire combo, quite an out-of-the-ordinary LAN 😀
In this picture you can see Tsu_Nilpferd and nC_ps3udo_ beating me and my teammate up in a game of table football. Under the watching eye of Blawas. Needless to say which team won the AoC match we had afterwards 😛
Oh and ofcourse they had the chance to playtest Age of Empires II: Forgotten Empires. The reactions were unanimously positive, some guys even skipped the night playing AoFE. Giving a good load of bug reports too, a bit embarrasing but also very constructive.
Last but not least I would like to thank nC_$kittle/F_aLc_enSchrei for organizing the happening and inviting me over. And of course all the other Germans for making it just a bloody fun weekend.
