I quite well remember, it was about mid-February of 2006...
I just had my HW game patched, and was eager to try online play. Having previously played a lot against computers, I already knew how to use all of the ships, and even already knew about the scout afterburners special.
I joined WON for the first time and hopped in a game, there were 4 other people in this game, making a total of 5 including me. I don't remember one, but Chainster, Vicious, and Kila, all presently SF members, were in this game, however they went by different names at the time. Chainster was Halflife, Vicious was War, and Kila was Fleetkila, or something like that. I went by the name of r_u_hi_2, of course nobody recognized me, and so they thought I was a smurf (and of course, I had no idea what a smurf was at the time).
The game we played was a FFA on Hyperspace Arena, with cpus... I was unaware at the time that this didn't represent a typical HW multiplayer game. In the game I built a decent cap fleet, and didn't forget to build scouts. Then Kila came and attacked me, and because I was a noob, I didn't know of the necessity of support frigates, so I was defeated, but not without a fight first. I remember at one point during the game, not knowing how to chat, so I minimized HW, and proceeded to look up the multiplayer controls from the HW quick reference card.
That's what I remember about my first game on WON...

The capacity to learn is a gift.
The ability to learn is a skill.
The willingness to learn is a choice.
The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
A world is supported by four things:
The learning of the wise,
The justice of the great,
The prayers of the righteous, and
The valor of the brave.
But all these are nothing without
The ruler who knows the art of ruling.

I can’t believe how much fun I had. I think playing the game was only half of the fun. Many of my nights were spent chatting on WON. Clan rivalries were in full swing. Daisycutter was annoying the crap out of everyone. The few girls that played were being stalked by everyone else. Ah, the memories.
The most memorable games were the FFA bounty games that CANADA666 ran; minimal starting resources in empty space. You had to kill to get resources. It was a huge challenge. Those games were what drew me to clan666.
