Without saying that they took up all the space, video games were part of my youth. There was a Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) in the living room, then in my room, which I used when I had nothing else to do. I had a Game Boy Color with the famous Pokemon Blue game. Otherwise, my friends and cousins had various consoles that created memorable moments for us all.
I was first introduced to multiplayer games on the Internet when I was 12 years old in Medal of Honor Allied Assault (2002). My parents had bought our first PC. I created my first clan, the [QC], which recruited about ten members. I lived through the evolution of groups of friends with the same tag to become full-fledged clans. The good old days when having a clan almost required having a website and a forum to survive more than a few months.
The very first structured clan I created was called the RCD around 2004-2005. We had weekly practices, strategies, and regular scrims against other clans. It eventually merged with the Patriotes du Québec (LPQ). It was there that I participated for the first time (2007) in a sugar shack with people I had never met in real life. This experience will remain engraved in my memory for a long time and will be decisive many years later.
I changed my name several times, but at that time I was mainly known under the nickname LightPaladinQc. It was under this name that I participated in my first LAN ETS in 2007, competing in Call of Duty 2.
