I do not remember my first event, but I distinctly remember the Grombie event. I was determined to get my Grombie skin so I was post bombing all high level infectee's threads. I think I got blocked by at least 100 people that week, lol.
I remember when zOMG was still a rumor. I've watched three different 'starter' locations and methods too. In fact, I still want to know the story behind the mystery conductor that was on the train. I think he was a Labtech in disguise.
My first event was Halloween '06.
And since I'd joined on the 18th of the same month, I had no idea what was happening.
I remember beating up cows.
I didn't know why.
I just figured everyone hated cows.
The first event I remember doing was Halloween 2005. That one sucked after a while due to dicks saying that you were not allowed on their threads if you didn't have so many points, many blocked people with lower scores and some even reported.
I joined in January of 2005, and I believe there was an Easter event that year, just don't remember it. All I remember from that year was Halloween.
Despite the fact I joined mid-2006, I oddly don't remember doing the Zurg events. I actually had to go and look on the Gaia Wikia to remember those. What was going on I think was that I was still a newbie and just kinda going with the flow. Not to mention that I was graduating high school right around when I joined Gaia, so RL was more interesting.
The first event I DO remember was Summer 07. biggrin That was so much fun, and I still have my Durem shirt and banners from that year. blaugh I remember working really hard to fill our longbow, and having lots of team spirit. I believe it was also during that time I had my 'original 4' accounts (this one and my three oldest mules) because I wanted to be on every team. XD
My first was Halloween '07. I remember having so much fun with my friends at the time in the forums. That's really all I remember from the events that year though. I don't even remember the Xmas event!
