Well, I was thinking of the old games I used to play...and these definitely stick out as epic moments. They involve two separate Age of Empires 2 games I played against other people.
The first one was a really long game...it got to 3 hours long. Most people would be too annoyed these days if someone did that in a RTS game, but back then people didn't really care and was kind of a strategy in itself. A lot of the games lasted 1+ hour, not what you see in RTS's anymore. At least in AOE2 that was the case. Well, we started off with I believe it was either 4 vs 4 or 6 vs 6...one of those two...I think it was the latter. We created a great wall of china across a quarter of the map and all our cities were connected. We had walls between ourselves too. Well, the grand strategy didn't actually work...my five allies got defeated really fast, our defenses failed and the other team just owned us within an hour.
I managed to send off peasants to a new area of the map. I rebuilt, trying to outlast them. Since there was a rating system, I didn't want to lose my rating :P They found me. I sent new npcs off again (did this 5-6 times), and was hidden on a random part of the map. I built up as they tried to search for me. I had NO resources at all, so all I could build were some weak ranged units. I did manage to build a small wall and when they found me...I lasted around 45 minutes as I built new units and repaired the walls. Eventually after a 3 hour or so game, my last guy got killed.
My most epic moment though in AOE 2 was amazing and actually used some skill. In AOE2 if you built trebuchet, you could blast your way through forests. Well, it was me vs someone else and we both had impenetrable defenses. It was pretty much a stand still and no one was winning (or losing). Well, I very slowly made a path through this huge forest (it was a heavy forest map) and created a little clearing area I made with the siege weapons. Built a camp for units, and built up my forces. Made sure my defenses were still defended and all not. Well, eventually I was ready and broke through the forest...which led me right behind his base.
I pretty much made short work of him. He did try to rebuild in another map, but it was pretty much over after that.
That was a pretty epic moment and my two best memories of Age of Empires 2.
Do you have any memories of any game?

PvPers that gank newbies, are carebears. They don't want a challenge (like a carebear), they just want easy mode (like a carebear) and a no challenge combat (like a carebear).
