I miss a lot of people that used to play here. THey come, and they go. I guess that's life.
Someone, a while ago, did a thread asking if people remembered:, then went on to list names of people who used to play here. I miss a lot of them (anyone remember Newbold? He was MY newbie :P).
Heck, I remember when wyz's first game here. Wyz was such a controversy when he started playing...I remember a lot of people wanting him banned for unknown reasons (probably because they thought he was cheating, HAH! CD is on and he's still the best shot I know). A lot of people left from wyz playing here (Adam, Pyro, bebhead (well, he had more of a problem with b), and a few others i can't remember).
And look. Now everyone's happy. And in the words of Pyro:
"Soon enough, people like tempus and wyzcrak are going to be RUNNING that server"
3) Support game play in a near-simulation environment. Where the focus of play would not be solely on doing what it takes to win, but doing so utilizing real-world combat strategy and tactics rather than leveraging exploits provided to players by the design of the game engine.
Darkilla: In short, NS is pretty much really fast chess. With guns. Apophis: I haven't seen anyone say that SM's are better than non-SMs. Nordbomber: This is THE first server I've seen where either side can comeback from out of seemingly nowhere with the right teamwork. en4rcment: I have NEVER experienced the type of gameplay that I have found here. Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent. Zephyr: Apophis is clearly a highly sophisticated self-aware AI construct that runs on a highly modified toaster oven in Wyzcrak's basement.
Well, they have not been playing here for a while now. There were a lot of people that left "because of wyzcrak", but that wasn't their only reason.
Most of them were sore sports. That was why they left.
And I'll admit, I also had a problem with wyzcrak when he first came here. But, instead of leaving the community, i confronted him through a series of PM's expressing my discontent. We settled our differences.
9 months later, wyz is one of my favorite people on this server.
