  • the time the guy at my LAN cheated

    I say "my LAN" in that "I was there." I didn't host it or anything. I just don't get to LANs a lot, so this was sorta "the" LAN for me.

    It was Million Man LAN last summer. You guys who were there: correct me on any important details I'm screwing up here. My memory sucks.

    Anyway.. I just mentioned this in #tacticalgamer (join us), so I thought I'd share it here, too.

    Man... the visuals from this memory.. I'll never forget them.

    [20060703 16:08] Wyzcrak__: have I ever told you guys about the experience I had with the cheater at MML (millionmanlan) last summer?
    [20060703 16:08] Wyzcrak__: buncha nerds in a warehouse, right? like... 1500 of us

    [20060703 16:11] Wyzcrak__: I'll say 250 post-pubescent males of all ages and demographics surround this 14-year-old and ABSOLUTELY CACOON his ass with duct tape. I mean his two nostrols and eyes were the ONLY PARTS OF HIS BODY which were visible

    [20060703 16:12] Wyzcrak__: I will, no kidding, NEVER forget the look of fear in his eyes (given that's all of his body you could see).
    [20060703 16:12] Wyzcrak__: this child was terrified

    Cheating at a LAN? That's just asking for it. :row__679:

        SWEET! That is how it's done, I wish I could witness that some day. Dam good use of duct tape too, and if they are showing game footage on a very big screen at least leave your obvious hacks at home (always that chance you might show up on screen hacking the crap out of the other team with one clip from your pistol).

        There was a video online a while ago of a kid getting caught cheating at a LAN party and they took him and his computer outside and proceeded to whip his computer at the ground, that would be such an OWNED moment for that silly cheater.

        Thanks for sharing that.

            Best part of the vid is the final quote "that power suply is still good right?". Man the only thing scarier than angry geeks is geeks going over the goods....

              That video has got to be staged...

              And while cheating is pathetic, that is horrible!
              So noone (including you) did anything to prevent this?

                I've heard from LAN-heads that that video is staged. I wouldn't feel that bad for the guy even if it was real though. What kind of idiot cheats at a LAN (or at all)?

                  I was there.. I actually rode down there with Wyz. Great view going down and back.
                  Anyways, to the story.

                  It was awesome. Duct tape + Little hacker = THE PWN.
                  It was awesome, and there is actually a video of it out there somewhere. I'll try to find it!
