First stupid thing/rookie mistake
When I started playing back in High School, me and my friend rolled characters together.
We were kind amazed by the game, having a blast (just killing leets and doing simple easy missions).
Soon we started to get some implants on mobs and then my friend says to me “OMG THIS IMPLANT HAS A SHOTGUN!” (was just a right hand with a shotgun modifier bonus, he thought his right hand would be some kind of robotic shotgun). We grinded for a several hours so he could equip it (we didn’t know about twinking back then), just to be completely disappointing that his Nanomage NT had no freaking shotgun whatsoever.
Second stupid thing, get ready to cringe.
I was completely outraged back then because I thought you could only sell 3 items at a time in shops (because when you open a shop it just shows 3 spots to put items). I even did a thread on the old forums completely mad that I had to spend several minutes opening and closing the shop 3 items at a time, just to be completely humiliated by people and realizing my mistake.
I quickly deleted the thread out of shame
Third, and last.
My first real organization (after going paid) was Shadow Ops. Shadow Ops was at the time already an old and respected Org, with several rules, lots of fields, awesome people (still miss Drluva and Derroylo <3), etc. We had a forum with a AI City wishlist, where people put up their desired items and when they dropped they had priority on the loot if they were online. One day we did a massive Sunday Afternoon AI CIty with lots of players and it was really challenging back then with that many people. When the ground general died I was curious about the loot (it was my first AI raid), so I just right clicked the body to see it. Then I saw a green’ish strange thing that looked like a scope (never have seen it before and remember, no inspect function back then), I was gonna check the stats and clicked by mistake, looting a QL300 Viral Target Subunit on my 150 ish fixer in 2005. I didn’t got banned from the org, but a player immediately logged off after I did it, I spammed “I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry, is that expensive or rare?? Was totally by mistake!”. The President back then (Drluva) believed me and I spent months apologyzing for that.
The player that logged off was on the wishlist for the VTS for more than 6 months.
Yes, my 220/30/80 Fixer Leite still carries that VTS on the inventory as a reminder of that mistake:
