awww this is so wholesome, that is really so cool.So back in like 2013-2014 I got invited to this TeamSpeak for a sub-community of MCSG. Over time it distilled into mainly a group of about 5 of us MCSGers, plus a sibling and a couple others.
When I drove across the country from Florida to British Columbia, Canada, I visited one of my best friends, Zane (Original IGN Zaex30) on his birthday. That was the only time I've ever played on a Wii U. I also gave him a wooden katana as a gift.
Earlier this year, in late March, I flew across the country to see the entire group and spend the weekend at PAX East together. We planned it really suddenly, as tickets were going on sale and we knew they'd sell out online quite fast. Two of us flew in, another friend took a coach bus, and three people lived in the area. We spent ~4 days staying at one friends' house. That was me, Zaex, OnlyMathias (ex-mod), Sarchikani, OptionsFinest (he may have had another username), and Mathias' brother.
These guys have been a big part of my life for the past ~6 some years, and I was really happy to get to spend time with them.
For anyone wondering what it's like to meet your internet friends in real life: It was exactly like spending time with them on TeamSpeak or Discord or in-game, except with 0 ping and face-to-face. We were instantly able to fall into routine, cracking jokes and making fun of each other just like we would through our computers. Can't even begin to recall how many times I was bent over, laughing at someone's stupidity or joke.
