Joined and a few days later got this account...

Dec will be the second year for me.

I am a veteran that lead the team Chaos on GU and lead the team Zerstörende Amseln
(means Black Bird...) current leader of the bzfx.net/league/ league thingy :P


I've been banned four times on purpose, one a viper when I first started, the admin got in trouble cause he handled everything wrong...
Second time was on lasermania by /poll ban, a n00b started it cause he thought I was flag passing, when he didn't understand that if you drop a flag on a slant it passes back...

Third time was on lasermania... I was [nr] and was un-/kick'able so the guy banned me for a couple minutes

Fourth time was on BadgerKings...


Only been kicked once on purpose... again on viper by the same admin, he got in trouble for that as well, The guy kinda skipped the warning part... :P

And... never been /mute'd cause I'm a good boy and don't cuss :P

I joined at 2.0.0 a little after it was released...

*thinks of anything else to say...*

Oh with help from L4m3r and I, JeffM created onCapSw...

Oh yeah! almost forgot, I made the original version Boxy War...

The smallest score i've ever had was -31... the -50 on my profile page was done by a guy who I let borrow my account...

With the help of MACnus I created iBZEdit, MACnus has now started his own ObjC version...

There are a few other things I've done... impressive but not for the forums :P to many flame posts :P

DANG! I thought I won the oldest player war. :( Ive been playing for almost 7 years. The first 3 years, I was young and didnt really want to try and figure the game out. So I just screwed around with it. After that I started getting into it and changed my callsign alot which is why I have only been joined for a short time.

I wish they'd bring back MadCity....
Heh, There are many others, that have been playing alot longer than I have also :)
Beware! I'm going to clone myself and spread those clones all over the world!

How long I've been playing..

Post by Colonel » Thu Dec 28, 2006 8:15 am

Too long.. When it was on the SGI's at work with the basic tanks..

I guess about 1991 or 1992. There were about 20 of us on a network that had BZ, Dogfight, and a few other games to play at lunch..

I've been playing for like 5-6 years. Long time. I dont play to much to often. Usually all in the summer. Every time I play they're spread out in increments. I'll play for 1 hour one day. Next day 1 hour. Then won't play for 1-2 weeks.

kind of ashamed to say ive been playing since 2.0.4, so thats like around april last year i guess?

in my time i have only been muted a couple of times by brad for fun (the mutes lasted like 30 seconds)

i also managed to get banned on 1 server, its a 2.1 server that i ACCIDENTALLY crashed. (the owner knows who i am so dont worry, and no i wont tell you how i crashed it)

atm i am completely obsessed with bzflag, so judging by my previous experiences with obssessions i am likely go start going on and off in about a year.... but who knows... maybe bz will break the tradition

I've been playing since somewhere around 2.0.4... almost 2.0.6 at the time I joined.

I have been muted and yelled at several times, but not so much anymore. Though, I got muted in the last week on a server for arguing with someone... I didn't start it. But don't expect me to be nice when you try to force your religion on me. 8) It doesn't work well.

Oh well. I guess we all have our moments.

Lol true, i was in an argument with some guy (i didnt start it neither) that was saying "show me your......." you get the point :?

This was on Planet Mofo though, so i guess it was allowed? :shock:

Anyway that was off topic but i thought i'd share it with you guys.
