Found someone playing LBA in the wild.

2 weeks ago, 26-29th of november I was at the biggest lan-event in the world called Dreamhack, which is located in Jönköping, Sweden. It was a blast and there was a lot to do, however, I was almost not even going there.

1 week before the event 1 of my 3 friends going there found one free seat three spaces from them. On the 3 seats sat three very nice french guys. We managed to send them a message asking to switch seats and they agreed.

Anyway, we get to the event and during one of the nights I saw the guy sitting next to me playing something on his phone. I looked and to my surprise he was playing something that looked like LBA, sure enough, after asking him he said he was playing the first LBA, he said it was nice to quickly open up and play while waiting for a League of Legends game to start up.

TL;DR
French guy sitting next to me on Dreamhack was playing LBA on his phone while waiting for his League of Legends game to start.

Don't know if this is worth making a thread about but I still find it really awesome, I have never met anyone who played LBA among my friends. And for it to be a french guy on the biggest LAN event in the world in Sweden was surprising. Such a coincidence.

Have you guys ever seen anyone or met someone who plays LBA?

Not IRL, other then MBNers - but sometimes online I see people mention it for one reason or another.

Nice one to share.
It may be very rare to find someone playing LBA this days.

It will be much easier to find Candy Crush

We should get Microsoft to install LBA by default in Windows10 instead!

Besides my cousin, who introduced me to the game (even though he basically gave me the game because he didn't like it), I don't know anyone else who enjoys the game... and everybody that I showed the game disliked it or just didn't even want to try it as well

The game hasn't aged well graphically so I'm not surprised that people don't want to try the game. If LBA 3 ever comes out, then I'm sure alot of people would be interested then (thanks to modern graphics and gameplay).

In terms of phone games, Id argue LBA1 still looks pretty darn good :P

It looks indeed, the only downside is the aspect ratio not being fully adapted.
