1:337 – 1 man : 337 words


The Beta was cracked and I remember how overpowered fiends and mass ghouls were with double auras. As a committed player I had told myself I would never use another race until I mastered the Undead, my favorite race. Little did I know that my stubborn neuroticism would lead me to playing UD for years to follow. That’s what happens when you’re an obsessive compulsive.  While I don’t remember too much of my experiences with Reign of Chaos, I do recall one specific night playing Frozen Throne. I had been playing for hours on end into the night and I was level 15+ or so in Random Teams (I mainly did 2v2 because I simply thought 3v3 was BS at times). Please take into consideration, and I am not sure if anyone remembers, but early on it was very difficult to gain level experience in Frozen Throne. It was not until after a few patches that it became normal to be higher than level 20. Anyway, back to that night, it was pretty late and I was lucky enough to get one ally that was just 1337. Long story short, we ended up becoming friends and went on 20-0 2v2 streaks as Orc UD. For a while all we did was do a mid tier attack, he would go grunts, FS and if I can recall, a few catapults and I would obviously get DK Lich fiends (the cookie cut army for UD). If that attack did not destroy our opponents, it would cripple them to the point where our next attack would mop the floor.  After I would tech to Dests asap while my ally continued to mass, expand and get wind riders on some occasions. We continued to own newbs and were able to retain top 20 AT ranking on Azeroth. Our highest was rank 12 I believe, which ain’t too shabby. The killjoy became NE ORC… post a few patches that 2′s team became just became Overpowered. Hunts Grunts DH BM, that mix owned…
