We all logged on to the internet, and tried it out that very same evening. Prior to this, I had only played quake over an ipx network, in the forms of Qtest1 and the shareware version.

We had played against several members of those few clans that existed in Sweden at the time, and we weren't very scared of any of them (or so we thought)..."
