Hey from Portugal :)

Post by wipeout2097 »

Hey there. I'm Paulo from Lisbon, 38 years old

I'm so glad that I found your site and an UT community! I started with UT GOTY offline, since I didn't have flat rate internet (I'd be broke in no-time). But I surely had fun blowing up stuff and I still have some memories about vitrals or a trophy room :D .


I've been an UT2004 and UT3 player, but I guess I'll be into UT again.

Cheers everyone :)

No sh*t! :shock: Damn, welcome :tu:

I am also a portuguese and I live in Lisbon as well. You live where? I live on Benfica/Portas de Benfica...

It's really a surprise since every portuguese that played this UT either are very young (younger than me) or they live outside Lisbon.

So enjoy your stay here in this forum (hope to see you some day in some server for some fragging) :flag3: :tongue:

LOL, did you use google translator? :tongue:

If so, I think in portuguese what you really meant was:
Olá! Bem vindo a este fórum companheiro! Espero que aprecie/aprecies a sua/tua estadia!
So basically google fails once again in translation LOL
Don't worry, you didn't say anything really wrong :)

In english the above means:
Hello! Welcome to this forum mate! I hope you enjoy your stay here!
Also, it's maybe hard to believe to most people that don't know this language, but portuguese is also in fact the 8th most spoken language in the world LOL
