How did you get into minecraft?

Post by CommanderAJ13 on 6/22/2011, 10:11 am

Warning!
Stupid story ahead!

I started with Half-Life 2.

What happened is, I went out and bought the orange box for Xbox 360 at my friend's recommendation. After about a year of sitting on my tv, I decide to pick it up. I started with Half-Life 2 and played for awhile. Then I got stuck. I went straight to google (yes I know, looking up a walkthru) and searched up HL2. The first youtube video that came up was by Davidr64yt, who I subscribed to. His commentary for HL2 was absolutely hilarious because he took about 3 videos to complete a 5-minute section of the game. One day, he came out with a video on this new, strange game called minecraft. After watching about 100 episodes on it, I had to get it. I bought it but quickly bored of it, until my friend from Delaware turned my towards Oasis. He played here once, then moved on but I stuck. I loved all the sights, the people and the amazing things around the map (the map at the time was the squid spawn). And that is pretty much my story of how I got into minecraft.

So, Oasis, how did you get into playing minecraft? Or more specifically, Oasis SMP?

I played Single-Player for aboot about a day and went on a site that had the best minecraft servers. It was at that time that I scrolled from page 1-10 looking for a server that was Canadian. I didn't find one so from that point I was thinking "Meh, I'll just join the next American Server, granted that they are nice." I joined one and was ridiculed for being Canadian, as I am in most American games/places, so I went back and joined the next one. It was at that time that I joined Oasis-SMP and was a guest. I was greeted by MarviNacho, FinalWorld, Cloudkesh and AtaSky. I saw that most of them tolerated the fact that I was Canadian and were nice to guests so I decided to stay. 3 Days later, I saw Ariley92 say that he was going to add in the 'Member' rank for the members that haven't been here so long. I decided I wanted to be a Trusted and posted my Application on the forums called: "Kevo235 for Trusted or at least Member Rank".

Copy and Pasting is what I do! Either way, that about sums it up.

I seen a lot of videos about it and heard a shit ton of hype, so I checked it out and deemed it possible the stupidest thing I've ever come across in my life. I kept on watching videos though out of curiosity, and some random kid on my XBL friends list sent me a download link to the single player, for free. So I decided to at least give it a chance and then after that it was like crack. Got to the point where single player just wasn't cutting it and finally bought a copy for myself.

Saw a bunch of my friends playing it, and like panda thought it was quite possibly the stupidest thing I had seen in my life. My friend forced me to try it one day for 10 minutes, and I got addicted.

So... Sainteven and I played on a server. This was like last October. It was okay. But we (mainly I :P) had a lot of ideas about how to improve on what this server was doing, and also, we were kind of tired of their ridiculous rules. I mean they had TONS. At least 3x as many as Oasis. So we were like fuck it, let's start a server for ourselves.

So, I researched how to get one off the ground, and I got it working, and Saint and I played on it for about a week. Then I decided to make it public. And Oasis SMP was born!

I saw a seananners video on youtube about minecraft. I said okay, I'll try it. So I bought and downloaded, played it and hated it. I couldn't get anything done, and it just sucked. About 2 weeks later I was really bored, so I thought I'd give it another chance. Been addicted ever since.

I got into it because my sub box was being spammed by Seananners and BadFatPanda playing MineCraft, I think I'm the first person to think it looked amazing right from the start, Although I did get bored of it for a while (Around 3 months) Then Legend told me about this server... Back in April I think, Got on and I haven't looked back since <3

I have to say, X is one of my favorite youtube commentators, how he does even the simplest of things is hilarious!

My buddy cory499299 told me about minecraft, then I saw it on tobuscus. I thought it was quite the coincidence and its probably pretty popular, so I tried out classic. I loved it and eventually bought the full game.

well i to was ranged by a friend, who explained minecraft and i thought it sounded out of date lame and pointless. But what do you know, i played for 10 minutes and havent stopped wasting my life away since. As far as Oasis goes, i played a few hit and miss servers that were just terrible, Oasis let me in and here i am today :)

I was watching some Machinimas, and i suddenly clicked a Minecraft Infdev Video, and i said: ''Wtf is this?'' I watched the video, and i said, BEST GAME EVER
I went to a Pirate Site and downloaded it, but my friend said to me: ''Why dont you buy the real one and then play the Multiplayer?''

I went to Minecraft.net and Bought it, and now im playing it with your guyz ;D

So, I was bored as hell one day. On Google I searched "Sandbox games". A random list of sandbox games came up. Sure enough, there was Minecraft. I clicked it and it sent me to Minecraft.net. I tried the free old version, and thought it was OK. I then tried to get a cracked copy on PirateBay (I know, I know). Being the noob I was, I didn't realize you had to buy an account to get online. So a few days after, I bought the full game. I originally played on DeadMau5's server. It was way to crowded, and there was no real way to get noticed. After trying numerous small, shitty servers, I found the gem that was Oasis. I never looked back since.

okokok...my story...

Back when i was screwing around with flash animation, I was in a chatroom with animators. They would bring up minecraft and playing it. I looked it up and it was a game with blocks. My first reaction "wat...". I decided to look it up on youtube and saw awesome caves and amazing terrain. I tried the classic version, unknowing that there was a difference between classic and survival after i got an account. I figured out that i had to pay for it. I was too cheap to give my money and too lazy to ask my parents. About a year later, I finally bought the game and started playing. I played on a few servers. I realized that they sucked. Commander chair showed me oasis, and then i started playing it. I was suprised how not shitty everything was! I played and...yeah I'm too lazy to think...
