    Back in September 2003 I was deployed to Iraq, and while there was internet available, I'm sure I was one of the few that actually had internet in my room. I would be willing to bet I was the first to play UO in an actual combat zone. Nothing like a mortar attack and I was more concerned with what was going on in game rather than ducking for cover... Indirect fire, it would have got me the first time, no need to run...

    Fast forward some 10 years, and I found myself once again in a combat zone in Afghanistan. I would be willing to double down on that bet and say I am the first to play UO in 2 separate wars.

    Over the years I have known many who played from the battle zone of iraq and afgan. also the dubi and other bases in the area supporting the troops. Con is bad most times for them... But to escape the fighting with uo.... you have to give them points for the try.
