That was my first experience with battletech, my dad introduced it to me. Back when he still knew how to use/build computers, at this point i've taken over that job/role.
So far I've played: Mechwarrior 2 +xpacks, Mechwarrior 4 +xpacks, Mechassault 1/2 (it was bad... I cried over the lore and arcade shooter it became, and the fact my friends say "mechwarrior? is that like mechassault or worse? Then i die a little inside). Also played mechcommander 1-2 and have tried tabletop battletech, but havn't played it much.
So yes, i know a good chunk of the series/lore. (yes I played mechwarrior 3, but I couldn't get my controls working right so didn't play it much).

And then Uller in MW 4: Mercenaries.
I sucked for the first time, because I had to get used to mouse/keyboard. Now with Uller, that was a completely different thing.

Oops this is about the table top game. I was talking about the computer game.

I was mad at first and after about 2 hours of MW2 i never looked back. Screw armored core.
First TT match was one of the training matches from 4th edition. It was a Hunchback and some fragile light against an Enforcer and a Hermes II.

Did lot of childish artwork...
A long time doesn't happen anything. I bought some books (3-4 years later) - with some friends we tried to create a self made board game that sucked...but it was fun - two months later I bought MechWarrior 2 and became a true born warrior of JF...
MW 2 GL, MW2 Mercs followed. At the same time with MW3 i got 4th Ed. Box in my hands.
So my first real TT battle was a self made Dragon IIC vs the Nova of a friend. While playing Quick-Start rules and no heat the Nova Prime almost killing my Dragon...won with a maneuver that became one of my hallmarks at the brink of destruction 180° degree turn and show them your back...well there i had another array of laser...crippling the last internal structure of the Nova.

In retrospect I think that that mini was cursed or something... Whoever used it always died within the first two rounds of combat, either by epic head shots or freak criticals...

Head shot and pilot killed in opening shot.
Took some explaining to my oponent that he'd won and let's try again.
He just could not believe that it could be over so quickly.
One of my shortest TT games ever. Did not put me off for a moment.
Our following game took about 2hrs.
