If yes, how to make it happen // why ?

Never stopped playing.

As to why, well, because nothing better has come along, it's still GOAT video game.

I just came back after 13 years or so, I guess that makes me ready?

...and has the game gotten faster or am I really just getting THAT old? :D

In all seriousness though, I still got some moves left in me and many things
movement wise come from muscle memory, but my aiming *dang* it's gone,
blown away, around the walls. I hope I'll find it soon, somewhere, some day...

Still as fun as it used to.
So maybe I'll play more, maybe I don't.
We'll see.

In that case, I must be very retro.
Not a valuable vintage collectible though :/
In very bad shape too as stated :D
Only played through late 2.x (can't really remember version) to 4.0 or 4.1.

I prolly get flak for this, but 3.7 (or was it 3.3?? Darn, can't remember!)
was and still is my favorite :blink:
Reason being, I mostly played Uptown and Docks (some Turnpike and Casa too),
and on 3.7 (or was it 3.3 still) I think were the best versions of Uptown
and Docks. Not just my opinion, but many of the players that played back then
thought so too. When 4.0 came, Uptown survived, but Docks just was never the
same or even close. Somehow the Docks just didn't port well to the new version.
It didn't have the same feeling. Uptown was a bit same at first, but it wasn't
so bad after some time.

Oh, and it was almost only TS for me with some occasional CTF rounds.
On 4.0 (or possibly 4.1) it changed more to CTF since good TS servers
died out. Remember having botter problems a lot back then? I think I quit
cos of botters.

Was never in any clan, only played on pubs, even if I was asked many times.
Clans and scheduled playing is just not my thing. Prolly get flak for this
too :tongue:

Sorry for blabbering but somehow I just feel like explaining myself :wacko:

Edit: Added the 3.3 notes, cos I started to doubt myself. Oh well, it's so long
ago and I'm a fossile already, so maybe you understand... :unsure:

I've been playing for years - 2.x and onwards. My skills have decreased over the years, but it doesn't matter really. If you like playing - just play :D I started on Chello and Aardvark servers in the day :)

There are servers out there that aren't all that with ratios etc - Monkey's Playground for one :cool:
I am running a lot of the old maps. I even converted some to play with the newest version. The only map I do not have in the cycle is Uptown (gasp! I know). At some point I will sort the bots on that map. They spawn inside and don't move from there. But I have Casa, Sliema, Turnpike, Docks etc.

Just go and play - don't worry about skill set etc - just have fun :) It's what it is all about anyway.

Ooh, Sliema is fun. Multilayered, a bit like Uptown, though Uptown's flow of the game in TS
kicks the floor with Sliema imo.

...and it's a shame I'm european, might still raid your server some day :)

Edit: Uptown is not that good in CTF though, many other maps much better, like Sliema imo.

Server is in the UK. I’m sure your ping would be cool :). I didn’t mind Uptown as CTF the flag points made it interesting. I’d thought about running a CTF server but I’d lose a lot of maps from my cycle so TDM it stays (for now)

As I said you are welcome anytime. Whole range of skills playing. My setup eliminates the ‘ego’ issue some others have

Whoops, I somehow looked at the Union Jack under your avatar and mixed it in
my brain as US flag. Sorry!
Too much work and early mornings - some might call them late nights - I guess.

...and about the ping, I wouldn't be so sure. I'm on 4G and right on the edge
of the cover area. If it rains or snows or sometimes when it's very windy, I'm
screwed :(

CTF or TDM pretty much the same for me, I would prefer TS if I could choose, but
I guess it's not very popular. It never was, compared to other game modes.

Anyways, I feel very welcomed now, I just need to get time to play. Long hours
at work atm :(
