Two years ago today, I logged on to a gray looking Tactical Gamer website and registered on these very forums. I had played on the TG 2142 server just once, and I was instantly hooked. I had to get involved, I had to play more.

I began PC gaming after a friend forced me to get Halo. For months, we sat around sniping "n00bs" until he moved onto 2142 and dragged me with him. One day, he found the TG server and convinced me that this "Foxlion" fellow was some sort of squad leading God, and that I had to play with him. Turns out that that server would change the way I would play video games for the next two years.

After joining the forums, just six days later, I would post this thread: I have a Tactical Gamer question or two. I got my SM shortly there after.

Through Battlefield 2142, a bit of PR and PoE2, Counter-Strike Source, Left 4 Dead, Left 4 Dead 2, Team Fortress 2, I have played with a lot of people, and have had a crapton of fun. Now in BC2, I'm still having TG fun.

My first IHS was the 11th, with I stayed with for just over a year. I can't tell you how much fun I had in 2142 with you guys. Unfortunately, we have since disbanded, and I have joined my awesome buddies in the 70th.

I can't wait for TGU to get its foot into BC2, I loved teaching 2142 classes.

Truly, this blog is dedicated to all of you. Without you, I wouldn't be here at TG. I'm not even going to try to name names as there are way to many. Stay classy and have fun! The community and the gameplay is what kept me here the last few years, and may keep me here in the future.
