I got the demo of S1 on a CD in a gaming magazine (Gamestar). I don't know how often I play the seraphim to this cave, where the demo ends. love at first sight!
bought the game at ebay (shame on me, no support for Ascaron at this point), the game only runs with a no-cd-crack on my system. but who cares in that times!
found a community I will probably never find again and thought it wouldn't getting better. well...what a mistake! starting hardcore and it got better.
then Sacred 2 was announced. man, I was excited. and the seraphim was still on duty! and...I was able to participate the beta test. "wet dreams" come true!
Pre-oder the limited edition and never regret it. (ok, elite textures killed my dual graphic cards...again...who cares!)
Remembering all the evenings where I just want to play an hour and never played a minute, but was bounded for hours in the lobby chat.
*pling* "xy is entering your server" - "greetings, is the desert free?"
celebrating a level-200-char!
S1 brought me to Sacred, but the time with Sacred 2 on the HC-Server I will never forget!
