Hi

I started to play TFC early year 2000. Only had a 56K modem back then but I loved it. Remember I found it so cool to be able to frag "real ppl" :P Played mostly for fun on UK servers but then [Dice]SoulReaver kicked my butt about 15 times in a row on cz2 I knew that it would take alot of pratice to become a good TFC player

Played a year and during that time I started to think about joining a clan. I knew I needed a better connection to be able to do my best so when people asked me to join I turned them down. In the beginning of 2001 my ADSL conection finally arrived and it was heaven!

I tried out for a clan called TFT (kinda big euro clan back then) but when they asked me to join I said no for some strange reason. I remember I had my eyes on a swedish clan called VSOP and in my dreams I saw myself playing with them :P It never was more then a dream because soon afterwards I got the best offer ever, to join MsA For some reason they kept bugging me allthough I didnīt think I was good enough to be in that clan (thx Crenshaw). Agreed to join IRC to "talk" and once there I was in and I didnīt mind at all. The only thing I really regret is that I should have joined a clan sooner. Playing TFC in a clan is so much more and I think everyone who have been or are in a clan would agree with me.

Been in MsA since mars 2001 and itīs been so much fun. TFC is still the best online game out there and to be able to play it along with all the nice people in MsA have been a privilege. Now I have stepped down to give room to others in our clan (yes they kick my butt...) but TFC still rocks and Iīm back where it all started, playing for fun on UK servers

The "problem" with cz2 is that you either love it or hate it and I think most people hate the map for some reason. Peronally I love playing this map, at least in clanwars because itīs such a hard map to master.
A shame itīs not played more

It's not my favorite command point map, but it is certainly a classic.

Hey all just found out about this site a few days ago and its looking really nice. For any of you who may remember me from back in the day '99' i am Pbman or pb . i was in prob the most racist clan due to p69 being in it 2sM, i was the 3rd member of 2sM and was in it for 2 and a half years that we were together starting out in ogl open and finishing in the top 10 clan list it sta/pfl/igl all those leagues.2sM was a great venture and we were more then just 15 ppl playing an online game it was like a little family and a big community which is what kept us together for so long. afterwards i started a clan with blink . qp . "quixotic paradigm" i think, heh he choose the name, and did that for acouple more months before retiring and just pubbing here and there because school got to be a hastle and clan/practice all the time

its great to see some names here i recgonize. keep up the great work on the mod i look forward to comming back to tfc ~

Pbman - medic/scout

TF?

Hi everyone, I just had a quick read through of this forum post, and I was not able to find anyone who had played Quake TF!
Sacred Weasel and I used to play TF on QuakeWorld (Well, he did much more than me), and that was fun enough for it's time. Now there's been a TF mod for just about every game! UT, Quake 2 & 3, and of course TFC...
What's cool is that it was made by Aussies, and we're from Australia too (the first TF I mean), just thought I'd let you all know!

Also, I really used to dig the TF/TFC atmosphere, how everyone just got along, but just for fun, but occasionally you get people with huge egos, who just bag you out because you aren't as good as them. I just don't get it. If everyone knew eachother outside of the game, in the real world, there wouldn't be any kind of attitudes.

I like helping the new people out, after all, we were all once new to this game.

you seem to have a somewhat peculiar view of the real world

he has a point though to a certain extent - people when theyre online tend to amplify their personalities, so people with huge egos come out as complete wankers online

All I meant was that if a group of people with real similair interests got together, *usually* the fact that they share a common enjoyment, overshadows the idea of arguing and squabbling. Otherwise there wouldn't be a group.
You been to any clan barbeques? They're usually lot's of fun.

Hey.

I first started playing HLDM online and moved over to TFC as soon as it came out... Have been moving back and forth (a couple of times a year) ever since.... Never really gotten into CS until a month ago or so. But, I just won't ever be good at CS... I've always been good at both HLDM and TFC, so there's gotta be something about CS that just don't works for me.

I've been in only one clan for TFC sad to say (and one with HLDM)... But I can't recall that we even played a game before the cland broke apart. So I'm looking forward to FF and maybe playing with a Swedish clan or something..

I'm 23 and been playing "all" mods on the HL engine since HL came out. I'm one of those that has to be good at everything... (But then again, I never get great at anything ) Other than FPS games I have a real thing for racing games and some hockey games. And in case anyone havn't noticed.... I worship NES!!

Just dropped by and was pleasantly surprised at the development of FF. I saw the site when it first launched, with a few gren pics and so on, and wasn't entirely convinced. Now I can see there's been a lot of thought and effort put into the whole shebang. Keep it simple and as playable as the old one, minus some of Valves famous 'improvements', and you'll defininitely see a lot of oldskool mongs returning to the TF scene - me included!

My online gaming roots started back with playing Doom 2 over a modem with my mate. Then Quake arrived, and my PC/connection couldn't really take it at the time, so online play was canned until Quake 2 arrived, and then my multiplayer gaming life began to take off. In the beginning, this mainly consisted of running around pub servers, with ridiculous aliases, and finding that you could win a lot by ducking and shooting people in the kneecaps because nobody used +mlook back then (apart from those who knew what they were doing). Quake 2 lasted a little while, and then came that relatively unknown FPS that a few people played.

In fact, I might never have played it at all. I bought SiN instead a few weeks before HL was released, and I was really enjoying stuff like hacking into the computers using DOS commands, and getting that powerup in multiplayer that made you run round as an enraged beast. Luckily, working in a games shop at the time had its perks, and my old boss rather excellently let me take a copy of Half-Life home. The single player lasted all of five minutes (I STILL haven't completed HL1 to this day) and thus began the HL DM era, where I played countless hours getting used to the engine and generally having a whale of a time.

Then in early '99, again perhaps a lucky break, my brother simply would not shut up regarding a new teamplay mod he'd read about that was coming out in around a week. Naturally, I checked it out, and was instantly wowed by the thought of being able to operate as a specialised unit within a team. It seemed as if I had discovered a whole new way of gaming, and an exciting step forward from the recently introduced TDM mode for HL DM, which I enjoyed thoroughly.

When TFC was finally released, I was instantly hooked. I began dabbling on American 32 player WON servers, playing Engineer mostly as my 33.6k modem was being utterly reamed, giving me around 200-300 ping. Building SGs above the door on Rock2 was a surefire way to earn a bundle of kills, and soon I was finding (yes, it's hard to believe) even more imaginitive positions to put my faithful lag-dodging frag machine.

Then one day, I was fragging on the WON servers as normal, and a chap approached me about joining a clan. At this point in time, I really had no idea about the whole picture behind clans, apart from looking at a few badly-made websites when I played Quake 2. I agreed to join, and was curtly asked to change my name... the clan was called DBZ, and were all named after Dragonball Z characters. Not knowing much at all about DBZ, apart from it was a Japanese cartoon, I agreed, and so arose KriLLiN[DBZ]!

Albeit, not for long. This lead to me seeing the clan again a whole 3 times, and also discovering that episodes of the said cartoon basically involved lots of shouting about fighting, 10 yards of walking, and a punch thrown if you were lucky, all within a 30 minute period! But that was besides the point - I was now absolutely inspired by the whole business of clans.

Now I had realised, that *shock horror* pings to UK servers were a whole lot better than their American equivalents. And, by a cruel twist of fate, I happened to stumble across the greatest feckwits ever to grace the world of TFC... no, not [VVV]. I had found the server of [IOU].

On asking for a trial, I was greeted with a sharp refusal and sheperded to an equally matched clan in the feckwittery stakes, [AH]. They accepted my trial offer, and I proceeded to play, on a public server, in the ramp room as Engineer and racked up the whopping total of 24/4. This incredible display of record-breaking talent earned me a place in my first 'real' clan, and the beginning of my 5-something-year TFC journey. And I wasn't some Japanese cartoon character any more, oh no, my current name is in fact still the same thing I chose all those years ago.

As this story is getting rather long, here's a quicker account of what happened. [AH] began to dwindle, and we merged with [IOU]. [IOU] continued on strong for a while, but the emergence of Everquest completely killed the clan. Left and joined [RA] with Astraban, but my phonebill became immense and I was somewhat inactive.

Later, I joined =TGC= as [RA] folded, but some [IOU] returned and we merged with ]IB[ (formerly +DK+). This clan became [IOU]/]IB[, and then IAM. I left =TGC= and stuck with IAM. for a while, then left them too as we just couldn't get the members, and were shafted numerous times. Joined 750 with a couple of IAM. members, stayed for a while, played friendlies for [MP] also. Left 750, joined A&I who folded, joined [BCY]. Was invited by USCMr., found out how utterly pointless dual clanning is, left [BCY]. Had some great times with USCMr., sarcy, moaning bastards! Left due to exam inactivity, and joined [ERA] to try playing Soldier instead of Medic. Left [ERA] after some disagreements and joined [-M8-]. Here my TFC clanning ends, finally leaving as a result of the spam and inbalance that had cursed the game for such a long time.

What's my story since TFC? More recently I have been playing CS for a couple of years (even being part of the DW.cs team for a little while :P) and now since moving to France, I have hooked up with some people to play a few clan games. I even tried ETF a couple of months ago, but it just didn't hold the charm of TFC - plus there's no damn handhelds!

Anyway, I'm definitely looking forward to FF, all the best in its creation
