Blast from the past...

Dead Meat is always my favorite "where are they now."  It's been nearly a decade now!  Mith I can't even imagine how old you are!  Old enough to vote?  Crazy.  Is Banana still around too?

 

I'm still on the West Coast.  Boris moved back east years ago.  Anyone know what Zeth, Mika, or MetalXMan are up to these days?

 

Zip, I just reinstalled BF4, you guys have a server up?

Dam, thats alot of post packing..   A bit of the BF crowd has been playing Star Wars!  Theres a few diehard BF players (I just played on New Years eve)

 

Honestly, From what I see the most active game is 7 Days..  We actually have two Servers.  It seems like the 7 days crew is more apt to use coms (hence more active)

 

 

Id 'consider' buying 7daystodie.   Im almost certain that the reason youll be upset w/ me suggesting the game, revolves around the amt of time you will spend achieving progress.

 

fwiw 7Days is in Beta, so its still being /reworked/reskinned..   ie.  I wouldnt get to upset that theres ___  or not.   The game may get an update, and change it.

 

 

Hopefully Frost can get back to ya soon about your post..  Its like I wanna say Bananna hasnt been around for months, but he could be playing TF2 every night for all I know too.

Nice to see you Doc.  I am still kicking here in the East. I seem to remember that Mika always followed me around as a medic.  We had a great system in place: I step around a corner, die, she then steps around the corner after me, kills 4 people and revives me, we go to the next corner and repeat.  I still have one of the highest death:kill ratios you are ever going to see.

It's good to see some familiar faces on here.  Hope everyone is well.  

 

Those were some good times back then!

Ah man, I miss 2142...

Mith!  How old are you now, like 30?

 

It's an absolute travesty that the demise of Gamespy brought down both BF2 and 2142 multiplayer.  As much fun as I had playing BF2 with Delta Squad, I really think 2142 had the game-play honed to the finest edge.  Ever since BF3 I'd been imagining the possibility of BF2143, but after seeing how they (DICE) castrated Battlefront, I don't hold out much hope.

 

I've been playing mostly Rust and Rocket League these days.  Oh ya, and planetside2!  PS2 is the next best thing to 2142 imo, if you miss 2142, you should hop on the PS2 train because even though it's not perfect, it's the closet thing we're going to see in our lifetime.  My Sythe appreciates all the targets you can offer (Connery).

 

Deadmeat!  Mika was an amazing Medic, but the real kicker was how well she and Zeth worked as a team, they were constantly covering one another and rezing the rest of the squad.  A real force for good.  They weren't the best killers in BF2, but together they were the best supporting (by which I mean medic, not actually support) squadmates you could ever ask for.

I like using GameRanger for older stuff that doesn't support online any more - most communities are pretty lively (and I know the old Battlefront has been getting a lot of playtime recently).

 

GameRanger is @ http://www.gameranger.com/

There's a guide for tweaking BF2142 to run well with it at https://www.reddit.com/r/Battlefield/comments/2gs3tt/2142_complete_guide_to_play_bf2142_post_gamespy/

I looked at some 3rd party server support mod for BF2, but there weren't any servers with any players that had pings under 150, seems like most of the remaining crowd is in Europe.  Does GameRanger have a decent playerbase for 2142 in the US?

 

Also, congrats on 3,000 posts!

Hah, thanks on the 3k posts! Didn't even notice it, lol.

 

Not sure about 2142 playerbase on it. Don't see any games offhand, but there are about a dozen BF2 games (some have decent NA ping) and there's even a room up for the BF1942 _demo_.

 

I used it a lot to play Borderlands back when gamespy was still a thing, because it was terrible. It's definitely a great program for older games -- lots of AoE2, Warcraft 3, Diablo 2 (I thought I saw at least) and others.
