True Descent Players

Post by Theftbot » Fri Jul 20, 2007 1:02 pm

A post that shows the addiction to descent(like a extension to moons list), a few:

-You have a recticle and guages burnt into monitor screen
-You attempt to trichord behind a Wal-Mart shopping cart.

When stuck in slow traffic, you start checking object clearance looking for a route to AB above and past.

you flick at least 3 or 4 lighted matches into a dark room before you enter

obviously someone named Sirius never used a flare (I) and relied on their headlight (II)

Now lets finish this cause I have the Orginal Community list from over 10 years ago pfffft!

-----------------------------------------------------
You KNOW you have been playing too much Descent when:

* You become confused if a door does not open after you touch it.

* You wander around your house, after finishing a bag of cheesy poofs, looking for the respawned bag.

* You drive with your headlights off at night so that you won't give away your position to other cars.

* You obtain a schematic of the local supermarket and try to run it through Devil or DMB to look for the switch that triggers the front doors to open.

* You run over several pedestrians, and at your manslaughter trial you roll your eyes and attempt to explain to the newbies on the jury that this is the proper way to "Rescue Hostages".

* Your internet home page is set to Gwar's Descentia, and you become upset if more than a whole day passes without a news update.

* You place a purple filter on your porch light in hopes of attracting "fusion moths" at night.

* You take a dump inside your front door and, when asked about this, you roll your eyes and inform the person that you are "laying mines". When they further complain, you dismiss them as a "whiner" and then point out "that **** is easily avoided if you just look before you go through a door."

* You get stopped by the police for drunken driving while completely sober, and have to explain to the baffled officer that triple chording is hopelessly ingrained into your movement patterns.

* You throw lit firecrackers into closets to "flush out runners, campers and missile boaters."

* You buy parts to fix your car and then run over them, expecting the upgrades to attach themselves.

* You dig a zigzag tunnel under your house just like the one in Minerva in case you need to make a quick escape.

* At your terrorism trial after having blown up a nuclear reactor, you roll your eyes and attempt to explain to the newbies on the jury that "you were ready to go on to the next level."

* You refresh the IDL webpage every ten minutes because you just have to know if someone added a vote to the regulate page or posted the results of a match.

* You refuse to drive around the streets of any town not designed by Spaz.

* You gather a hundred small pebbles and paint them bright yellow, then carry them around in a pouch on your belt so that you will have "flares to open doors with."

* You rig "taunt macros" in your car's rear window and install a control panel with four buttons marked F9 F10 F11 F12.

* Your desktop wallpaper in Windows has a Descent theme.

* You walk around inside buildings dragging your hands along the walls, kicking the floors, and tossing things at the ceilings because you are "looking for secret doors and concealed tunnels."

* You bob up and down rhythmically, nonstop, no matter what else you may be doing.

* You return your new car to the dealer and inform him that it is "defective". You even take the time to show him what's wrong: the slide up and down control on the side of the steering wheel is not functioning. "Um, sir," he says. "That's the turn signal."

* You measure time based on "how many days until the next LAN."

* You avoid opening doors or making sounds because you don't want to give away your position.

* You are sure you got beaten out for a promotion by a competitor because "he has an incredible lag shield" and "needs to get a better ISP."

* When visiting someone's house for the first time, you insist that everyone leave and allow you to give it a thorough investigation, alone, because you "have to get to know a new level" before you will agree to do anything inside it.

* You use headphones even in chat because you are so used to wearing them.

* You can't understand why you are not rejuvenated after merely walking through the kitchen. "This energy center appears to be malfunctioning."

* You open doors you don't intend to go through just to "mislead your opponent."

* You absolutely refuse to visit your inlaws because they have salt and pepper dispensers on their dining room table. "Anyone who uses shakers is lame. Period!"

* You steal all the bandages from your local hospital because you are a "gauze whore."

* You are still posting messages in this forum even after you have withdrawn from the ladder.

I seem to have a better workout dodging your stupidity than attempting to grasp the weight of your intelligence.

Actually, it's just that the video used real matches. I do know the connection, but I usually don't light rooms up for myself except in single-player. Multi levels are almost never dark enough for it to make a difference.

- You stick your hand out in front with your thumb and pinky pointing out and down like the wings of a Pyro, whenever walking through large rooms or going downstairs.

You ask the dealer \"Can the car be ordered in Fusion Purple or Shield Orb Blue?\"

Also that you want to upgrade from TomTom to Guidebot

You open the trunk and say \" WOW, I can fit at least 3 hostages in there!\".

Then you ask the dealer \"are the additional missile mounts are an optional factory upgrade\".
