  • Happy Birthday Natural-Selection

    [ 10/31/03 ]:: Happy Birthday NS!

    Today marks the 1-year anniversary of the first public release of NS! On October 31st, 2002, we released NS v1.0 publically to players around the globe. There were overflows, high server CPU usage, and rampant team-stacking. We've come a long way baby, and we're just getting started.


    We were hoping to release NS v2.1 to the public tonight, to mark this special occasion, but it's not ready yet. Instead, we present to you a small tidbit of things to come. Here is a sneak preview at the Steam desktop artwork, hand-painted by Cory "Squeal Like a Pig" Strader.

    NS Steam background


    If you had your heart set on playing 2.1 tonight, don't forget that all new Constellation members will be given access to the 2.1 beta. I will work extra hard to process applications so that if you submit your donation by 10pm EST tonight, I'll make sure to respond to you shortly thereafter. I'll be working on all applications throughout the weekend as well, so if you want to sign up, you can see Combat for yourself (as long as you don't mind some bugs!). If you choose to sign up, don't forget to include your WONid and SteamID with your application for fastest processing.

    Many thanks to our forum moderators, IRC operators, server operators, league organizers and everyone else that helped make NS' first year a wonderful experience for everyone! As we like to say around here, you ain't seen nothin' yet...

    Aye, today marks the aniversary of my greatest addiction ever. And that background is badass. First time I loaded up Combat I drooled.

      screw combat, if your not out trick or treatin, i wanna see you in that server
      i'm getting sick of these boring ass games, and the only thing that keeps me here waiting and waiting and hoping and hoping that we will have a good night of games is that if i go anywhere else, its either filled with terrible jackass admins, or with no on that can listen or all newbs.
      although, if our servers empty..i guess jackass admins are better than nothing...
      (sorry to make it sound as if i'm yelling at you bentley, i guess i'm just annoyed, i meant it to everyone)

            Hardly "afford" to playtest it. I donated to NS the day the program was announced. I expected no benifits from the program, at the time there was no mention of the Constellation icons either. I donated because I considered it worth it. And if they ask for donations again to help develop NS for another graphics engine (HL2!) then I will gladly do so.

            These recent "benifits" have just been a nice addition to an already great game.
