- 7 years ago I hosted the first Halo combat evolved LAN party is Tanzania, only my friends showed up but it was expected cause no one else knew what Halo was... some people showed up for the free energy drinks then left, Good times. BTW most of the PCs on that picture had 2 Gigs of Ram.
I think the guy on the left is kicking the other three's asses. He's smirking all badass and the other three are all intense.ID: gs33llw
100% correct assessment i thinkID: gs3i3iz
He's using the mouse on his leg to better teabag from the hips.ID: gs3pi0z
"See, that's where you're wrong. Teabagging doesn't come from the wrist, it comes from the hip!"ID: gs322db
Dude is even one-handing it.ID: gs3a6na
Naw, he is using his mouse on his leg.
Good to see that even in Tanzania gamers block out the sun and outside world with curtains.ID: gs30ffd
Give them time, their eyes will atrophy and direct sunlight will be unbearable.ID: gs3f53e
Basically why dark mode was createdID: gs3l2qu
Are we all Falmer?ID: gs3k7f2
Is this actually why I squint basically 24/4 on a sunny day?ID: gs3rdeg
bruh everyone in africa blocks out the sun have you felt that mf around the equator?ID: gs4enhm
Do not touch the sun around the equator or anywhere else, it doesn't like it and it will hurt youID: gs3ydsr
Pretty much this classic memeID: gs36mvu
Those curtains are fantastic tbh
Hey man I don't know if youre still into this sort of thing, but I'm from Tanzania too and we have a small gaming community here where we play games such as csgo and fifa online and occasionally on Lan.Hit me up we are looking for more gamers man!.ID: gs3grka
Message him broID: gs3us3o
Messages aren’t worth karma. This your first day on Reddit? Sheesh. /sID: gs491ri
He is probably more likely to see a top post than a message. A lot of people don’t notice or check their messages, then since this blew up he is probably getting some random/spam messages.ID: gs3r093
Fuck I’d love if latency wasn’t a thing. Playing CSGO with a bunch of Tanzanians would be tight.ID: gs3skad
Yeah man how we wish for that too... Ping is a nightmare here.We play csgo on SA servers where the player base is not that big and ping isn't great.
So we pretty much ended up hosting our own servers where we do scrimmages over the weekend... Pretty fun stuffID: gs3l57b
I would love to be a Tanzanian now.ID: gs3pccv
I'd be worried about all the Tanzanian Devils.ID: gs3przl
What are the odds that any two Tanzanians run into each other in life?
I know nothing about the country, except that it looks quite large on the map.ID: gs3s4ox
Haha random tanzanians meeting.. Odds are decent.
Tanzanian competitive pc gamers on reddit meeting.. Odds are pretty freaking low!
Man, that's really awesome.
I only was able to have a LAN party once (in my college days) but those are memories I'll cherish forever.
I hope you were able to keep it up and the LAN party still goes on.
Game well, my brother.ID: gs3belr
We had a floor in our dorm for engineering students and they would set this up a couple times a month. It was the only time the sports athletes would hang out with them.ID: gs3dq86
As opposed to the non sports athletes?ID: gs50ftc
I started college in 03, so way before esports scholarships were a thing, but I used to organize LANs and even tournaments for the college. From there I formed my own team. It really was interesting how it brought people together. I was in marching band all through college, and our other 3 guys were a punk/emo skater kid, a bodybuilding pothead tech nerd, and the starting fullback for the University football team.ID: gs3is4k
This is what I miss most about college. Our entire residential college (dorm) was on the same network. So we could have giant LAN parties between the whole building. I'm pretty sure my life peaked when I won the Halo 3 tournament within our whole dorm. Had a crowd of people looking in from the hallway. Good times...ID: gs3n7b3
Fun fact about the Halo Combat Evolved PC Demo, for years and years and maybe still is the most played demo ever. It allowed people to LAN or online multiplayer on a small amount of halo maps for free. It is the most downloaded demo because of this. A universal, amazing fun experience anyone who built or got a computer could get into. Probably the most impactful thing Bungie has done was release that demo with those capabilities for free.
Oh man wish I knew. We're you in Dar Es Salaam?ID: gs3f2hj
Yeah, changanyikeni... I think back then it was still unknown but know cause of Uni and that huge super market near by its a very popular place
Even for me this callback seemed full of emotions. Cheers mate.
Nice! Tanzania LAN represent!ID: gs3eh9u
I miss doing stuff like this.ID: gs3ewgq
Seriously! Online isn’t the same.ID: gs3fc6h
Yep. Because every game has online multiplayer and you can play immediately with another person.
Back in the LAN days it was RARE to get to play multiplayer, which made it very special.
Now I’m just complaining about good things in life because I’m old! But for real LAN parties just hit different.
Better get onand get a few more players 🙂
I bet the lil shorty, 2nd from the left waxed everybodyID: gs3f4va
He is still asking for a rematch till this day.ID: gs3jfk6
do it bro, keep the LAN party alive
That's awesome bro
How nice to see that no matter how "different" we are in different parts of the world, the love of gaming is lived in the same way. Greetings from South America! I hope you and your friends continue well.
This is awesome. Halo lans are good times
Is the guy on the left using his leg as mousepad ? Thats hilarious!
What are you all drinking? The bottles look cool as hell!ID: gs3fa9a
The cheapest energy drinks you could find, it was almost poison wity the amount of sugar they pumped into those bottles.ID: gs3g4km
