 Hey  everyone,  I  figured  I  would  make  this  topic  here  just  because  someone  did  on  an  another  forum  for  the  nQe  Euro  quake  clan  and  it  felt  good  to  reflect  on  the  good  times  Quake  gave  us  all.
 
 Anyone  here  can  feel  free  to  pitch  in.  I  will  start  off  with  what  I  wrote  from  the  other  forum.  I  don't  particularly  remember  much  about  dates,  so  bare  with  me.  xD
 
 
Quote:
I  originally  started  Quake  back  in  roughly  2000  on  the  demo  after  a  friend  from  starcraft  introduced  me  to  the  demo  of  quake  3.  I  ended  up  playing  and  found  freezetag  with  servers  like  oNu  tdm  at  the  time.  Playing  mostly  at  oNu  and  some  other  tdm  server  with  hook,  I  soon  found  myself  topping  scoreboards.  My  perfomance  was  that  good  that  I  kept  up  with  another  oNu  who  eventually  thought  I  was  worthy  of  wearing  the  tag.  Of  course  eventually  another  oNu  comes  along  and  is  like,  wtf  and  all  about  me  not  being  in  the  actual  roster.  oNu  was  getting  disbanded  and  reformed  so  I  moved  on.
 
 After  like  a  number  of  months,  I  found  myself  playing  a  lot  on  the  100mbit  1v1  server  where  I  met  Mr.  Rail  who  invited  me  to  join  Wfx  after  seeing  how  well  I  played.  That  clan  didn't  last  long  as  I  lost  contact  with  the  guy  and  gave  up  on  it  lol.
 
 I  later  met  Chron!c  in  the  1v1  arena  who  was  the  leader  of  Star  with  a  couple  known  members,  including  Damien  who  were  later  pros.  Chron!c  let  me  join  before  the  clan  had  ended  which  led  me  to  joining  the  famous  9mm  clan  which  had  Chon!c,  Key,  Damien,  Ice,  and  some  others  in  it,  though  it  was  a  small  clan.  This  was  the  first  time  I  ever  got  to  do  some  actual  scrimmaging  with  Key  for  I  had  never  done  it  before.
 
 After  9mm's  departure,  I  am  not  sure  if  it  was  Flesh  or  Chron!c  who  ran  K9,  but  I  joined  that  clan.  The  funny  thing  is,  I  never  did  anything  during  this  time  period  and  never  kept  up  with  forums  or  what  not.  After  having  not  seen  K9  members  for  so  long,  someone  from  ITK  was  like  "Hey,  ITK  is  K9  now,  why  don't  you  join?"  I  am  like  whatever  and  was  made  a  part  of  it  without  any  questions.  Never  knew  anyone  after  that  rofl  and  I  wasn't  a  very  smart  person  at  the  time.
 
 I  eventually  joined  uSr  through  the  same  means.  This  time  it  was  a  clan  that  was  well  known  with  previous  members  like  Chron!c,  Damien,  Flesh,  etc..  There  were  two  versions  of  uSr  and  I  was  in  the  second  era.  Of  course  I  was  still  clueless  and  hadn't  bothered  to  look  into  anything  being  as  dumb  as  I  was.
 
 Jumping  forward  in  time  a  bit,  I  joined  up  with  a  1v1  champion  named  Spartan  and  created  an  anime  based  clan  called  Fuma  where  I  created  the  website  and  had  members  reflected  by  characters  of  the  actual  anime.  It  was  a  pretty  fun  experience  and  I  eventually  carried  the  idea  over  to  my  own  clan  EF  or  Elite  Force  by  allowing  my  own  members  to  have  a  picture  of  their  choice  with  a  bio.
 
 At  this  time,  Meganoob  was  looking  to  start  up  a  clan  later  known  as  .o2o.  or  obligated  2  own  which  became  super  popular  and  wanted  me  to  be  a  part  of  it.  I  turned  him  down  at  the  time  because  I  was  still  dealing  with  my  own  clan.
 
 Moving  along  here,  I  eventually  gave  up  on  EF  because  I  felt  like  I  sucked  as  a  leader  and  still  had  a  lot  to  learn  about  scrimmages.  So  pOq  was  my  next  stop  where  I  met  toxic  and  a  few  others.  I  went  through  two  renditions  with  their  clan  and  had  some  good  success  overall.
 
 Next  came  dXa  where  Key  apped  me  in  and  suggested  me  to  the  clan.  I  played  some  scrimmages  but  my  poor  connection  made  it  hard  for  me  to  play  well  at  the  time  and  I  kind  of  just  gave  up  and  took  a  long  break.  During  this  time,  I  found  out  I  became  a  full  member  of  dXa  and  was  kind  of  surprised  because  I  hadn't  hardly  contributed  much.
 
 Months  past  and  dXa  finally  sees  the  end  of  its  time.  I  myself  went  inactive  again  for  like  a  good  half  of  a  year  before  coming  back  to  enlist  with  the  clan  Era.  I  was  so  rusty  that  I  never  made  it  to  full,  but  was  going  to  be  given  another  chance.  While  a  trainee  in  Era,  I  met  a  player  named  Tick  who  was  quitting  because  of  how  bad  Classic  was  as  a  leader.  I  couldn't  have  agreed  more  and  turned  down  the  second  trial  saying  I  was  quitting  Quake,  when  in  reality  I  took  up  the  new  name  of  "Fox"  and  joined  a  clan  called  cD  with  Tick.
 
 It  was  on  that  day  that  I  took  the  name  "Fox"  because  I  resented  the  image  of  Era  and  wanted  to  oppose  it  by  representing  the  "Anti  Era".  It  was  too  amusing  to  resist  and  I  played  through  various  clans.  The  second  clan  being  d0c  where  Era  finally  became  suspicious  about  me,  thinking  I  was  some  sort  of  hacker  and  finally  figured  out  who  I  was.  To  have  that  sort  of  impact  obviously  meant  I  was  doing  the  right  thing  so  I  continued  with  a  bit  of  a  snicker.
 
 My  next  clan  made  an  even  bigger  splash  because  of  one  particular  reason.  The  leader  of  Bm  was  a  hacker  known  as  Nara  and  when  we  played  with  him  against  Era,  he  tore  it  up  so  bad  that  Era  would  always  make  quite  the  fuss,  but  nothing  ever  got  accomplished  over  it  because  of  the  lacking  proof  that  seemed  to  be  apparent.  The  shear  fact  that  Bm  had  Nara  who  was  handing  Era  their  asses  was  enough  to  get  the  clan  known  really  quickly.  Nara's  brother  also  contributed  too  at  the  time.
 
 From  Bm  and  d0c,  Tick  and  I  moved  onto  a  new  clan  called  oBs  which  was  probably  by  far  one  of  the  stronger  clans  out  there  at  the  time.  It  was  also  the  only  clan  to  use  a  number  attached  to  their  name  to  denote  what  member  number  you  were  upon  joining.  We  played  some  seriously  good  scrimmages,  but  the  lack  of  activity  kind  of  just  killed  the  clan  after  awhile.
 
 This  is  when  Tick  wanted  me  to  move  onto  C*.  At  this  point  I  was  kind  of  tired  of  the  whole  following  Tick  from  clan  to  clan  and  after  awhile  in  C*,  I  left  to  apply  to  .o2o.  which  had  been  through  quite  the  assortment  of  years  of  endurance  with  plenty  of  great  players,  even  those  from  the  old  oNu  like  Era  had.  Since  I  knew  Meganoob,  it  was  much  easier  for  me  to  get  apped  in,  so  I  took  the  opportunity  and  ran  with  it.
 
 By  this  time  it  was  somewhere  in  2006.  Boy  do  the  years  sure  fly..  I  proved  myself  as  a  trainee  for  o2o  even  if  I  wasn't  much  of  a  communicator  at  the  time  and  got  into  full.  I  stayed  with  the  clan  for  many  years  until  its  death  in  mid  2010.  Too  much  inactivity  was  starting  to  plaque  the  US  side  of  Quake.
 
 A  number  of  former  members  of  o2o  wanted  to  still  play  though  and  we  all  became  a  part  of  fOq  or  faces  of  quake.  We  literally  dominated.  It  was  East's  clan  and  also  had  Key  in  it  at  the  time.  Not  even  the  reformed  Era  in  the  form  of  [i]  was  a  match  for  us.
 
 fOq  was  probably  the  last  clan  to  ever  have  such  an  elite  cast  of  players  before  it  went  inactive.  After  that,  I  helped  n2p  out  by  joining  them  and  then  moved  to  RB  when  CandyGirl  enticed  me  to  join  for  awhile.  That  woman  was  sure  a  slick  one..  I  actually  met  and  played  with  A$D  or  Ken  in  that  clan  who  was  probably  the  only  other  good  player  lol.
 
 My  last  US  clan  I  joined  was  not  surprisingly,  "end"  which  had  some  still  left  over  Era  players  and  what  not.  We  did  kick  butt  for  as  long  as  the  clan  had  already  at  the  time  heh,  but  like  anything  else,  inactivity  killed  it,  and  with  it,  the  US  side  of  quake  without  clans  was  done,  though  a  few  servers  on  the  US  side  are  still  active,  including  the  Razer  server.  That  is  when  I  joined  the  Euro  clan  nQe,  but  have  found  it  almost  impossible  to  play  with  a  high  ping  on  slow  rail  servers.  So  yeah,  here  is  to  hopeful  and  wishful  thinking  for  something  to  happen.  


 
 Hope  you  all  enjoy  reading  it.  :P

I  started  playing  Q2  with  some  friends  in  grade  8  during  English  class  and  after  school.  I  couldn't  get  it  to  work  at  home  so  I  installed  the  demo  of  Q3A  and  started  playing  in  Texas  Hell  Freeze  (still  the  best  server  ever,  by  the  way).  Started  playing  at  #1  1vs1  and  met  Damien  and  some  other  #1  people.  Joined  some  noob  clan  (BD)  with  somebody  named  Vinny  and  then  started  playing  at  Flash's  1vs1  and  TDM,  oNu  rail  freeze  (after  it's  decline),  SS  Insomnia  and  Desire.  Somewhere  around  there  I  joined  DTP  and  met  Wolf  and  Hater,  Classic,  Birdman,  Elmo,  Archer,  CoW,  the  Shadows,  M16,  etc.  Left  DTP  because  it  was  full  of  hackers  and  realized  I  didn't  want  to  be  a  hacker.  Became  MDK-T  with  Flash,  and  Stacko,  and  Divine  (Old  Skool).  Left  or  was  denied.  Played  solo  and  joined  TK.  TK  was  killed  to  make  oWn.  (Somewhere  before  TK  I  joined  -oSc-  with  Toxic,  Snipr  and  Vortex.)  Went  solo  and  was  invited  to  dXa  then  dXa  retired  and  I  applied  for  o2o.  During  o2o  I  started  to  suck  and  got  more  interested  in  CTF.  I  quit  (technically  I  asked  them  to  kick  me  because  only  an  idiot  quits  o2o)  o2o  and  stopped  playing  Quake  for  a  few  months  (half  a  year  tops,  maybe)  and  then  started  playing  CTF  only  with  eM.  Applied  for  eM  and  was  later  able  to  teach  Damien  the  ropes  of  CTF,  which  was  fun.  eM  went  to  QL  when  it  came  out  and  I  didn't.  About  4  years  later,  here  I  am...


 
 That's  kind  of  abbreviated  but  all  the  main  parts  are  hit.  I  would  have  started  in  2005,  so  I  missed  the  oNu  and  9mm  days.  I  wish  I  didn't  miss  them,  though.  I  used  to  have  2  demos  of  oNu  warring  MDK  but  I  can't  find  them  anymore!  If  anybody  knows  what's  up,  send  them  to  me!!

 Reading  through  that  first  post,  K!kyo.  My  god,  suddenly  so  many  things  flashing  before  my  eyes.  Well  thank  you  for  that  you  numbnut  D:
 
 There's  too  much  to  write  here,  of  my  own  story,  so  perhaps,  I'll  just  write  some  random  things,  that  are  still  on  my  mind  to  this  day,  things  that  left  a  mark.
 
 Like:
 
 
   -  Playing  q3demo,  on  q.maunch.com,  on  Migs's  DM  q3dm17  server,  with  unbelievable  lags  and  11-25  fps.  And  it  felt  fun.  
 
   -  Having  a  name  "M4tr1x",  which,  as  I  later  found  out,  was  a  former  oNu  member.  I  never  knew  until  someone  told  me.  And  everybody  seemed  so  friendly  to  me,  I  had  no  idea  lol.  Had  to  change  to  something  else.
 
   -  Played  in  WFx  as  "L4stm4n".  Lmao,  I  even  remember  why  I  chose  that  name  -  I  found  it  the  most  heroic  thing,  to  play  "all-out",  helping  the  team,  and  still  be  the  last  man  against  something  like  6-9  enemies,  who  have  thawed  all  their  teammates,  and  still  win  the  round.  Happened  rarely,  yet,  it  did,  so  I  made  it  into  a  name.
 
   -  Meeting  oNu  -  bLu-eYz-wHt-dRgn  for  the  first  time.  What  a  bloke  !  Instead  of  typing  long  sentences  into  the  in-game  chat,  he  would  spam  it  like  this:
   --  hi
   --  guys
   --  whats
   --  up  ?
 overall,  was  a  cool  and  friendly  dude,  who  I  made  friends  with.
 
   -  Meeting  other  oNu  members,  who  were  mature  and  cool,  and  understanding  why  everyone  wanted  to  be  in  oNu.  It  was  the  most  desireable  clan  to  be  in,  whenever  an  oNu  would  show  up  on  the  server,  people  would  instantly  start  asking  for  tryouts.  Constantly.  Lmao  !
 
   -  Meeting  original  Supernoob  (who  was  from..spain,  I  think?  What  a  beast  of  a  player  he  was.
 
   -  Meeting  4dd1ct,  hanging  out  a  lot  on  MSN,  chatting  most  of  the  time.  Some  of  the  things  I  remember  from  him,  were  that  when  I  was  creating  o2o's  tag,  I  called  it  "obliged2own",  and  with  my  "knowledge  of  english"  that  seemed  ok,  yet  4dd1ct,  being  British,  with  probalby  perfect  English,  said  nothing  to  it.  Also,  for  some  reason,  when  he  was  making  oNu's  forums  (the  blue  ones),  he  came  to  me  for  a  name.  No  idea  why.  So  I  said  -  g3treal.  It  was  a  ridiculous  name,  yet,  he  made  it  the  forum's  name,  without  asking  Hicap,  Rayden  or  anyone  from  the  council.  Lmao.  onu.g3treal.com  .  A  20-smth  year  old  (4dd1ct),  respecting  and  inviting  an  opinion  of  some  shouty  teenager  (me),  how  cool  and  friendly  is  that  ?  Well,  that's  4dd1ct  for  you.  
 
   -  Meeting  RommY,  who  was  from  Estonia,  I  think.  He  had  the  same  200  ping  as  me,  and  played  nearly  identicly,  sometimes  even  better.  Had  great  chemistry,  so  I  started  thinking  of  making  a  clan.
 
   -  Woke  up  from  a  dream  in  the  middle  in  the  night,  and  somehow  knew  what  the  clantag  should  be  !  True  story  !
      That's  how  .o2o.  was  born.  I  had  no  idea,  at  first,  what  the  letters  and  the  number  2  should  stand  for,  but  I  knew  I  wanted  it  to  be  so.  The  original  colours  were  "^1.^4o^72^4o^1.^4Pr^11^7e^4st"  (along  with  my  name,  Pr1est,  at  that  time).
 
   -  Nearly  the  next  day  after  making  the  clan,  I  invited  4dd1ct  and  RommY.  They  were  the  very  first  members.
 
   -  After  some  time,  when  I  decided  to  end  quake3,  I  got  suddenly  invited  to  oNu.  That  happened  after  4dd1ct  got  invited.  I  thought  -  why  not,  Im  not  gonna  play  the  game  anymore  (boy  oh  boy  was  I  wrong).  I  didn't  want  o2o  to  die,  since  it  had  a  few  really  cool  members  like  Meganoob  and  even  Supernoob  at  some  point,  so  I  left  Mega  in  charge,  and  look  what  he  has  done  with  it  -  wonders  !  So,  no  matter  who  created  o2o,  I  still  hold  the  opinion  that  Mega  is  the  most  important  one  in  o2o,  and  we  all  should  be  thankful  to  him,  for  those  nostalgia  moments  we  get,  when  we  visit  this  place.
 
   -  Remember  talking  with  oNu  -  Bulma  a  lot,  her  calling  me  and  teammates  "hun",  in  like  "Heya,  what  you  been  up  to,  hun  ?".  I  had  no  idea  what  that  meant,  as  english  is  not  my  native  language.  My  god  we  had  a  laugh  when  I  asked  her.  After  all  that  time  of  talking  to  each  other  !
 
   -  Remember  talking  to  oNu  -  RayDen  on  sensitivities...He  used  6,  and  no  mouse  accel.  I  used  mx510,  sensitivity  5  and  accel  set  to  1  or  half  of  that.  His  position  was  that  you  don't  need  that  much,  and  he  was  right,  for  his  own  case  -  he  always  top  fragged.
 
   -  Remember  some  clanwars  with  RayDen,  Chron!c,  Bulma  and  others,  when  we  used  to  railjump  around  q3dm7  almost  perfectly,  synchronised,  going  like  a  train,  entering  rooms  and  immediately  owning  the  opposing  team,  who  would  camp  Rocket  and  Yellow  armor  rooms  (for  some  reason).  Happened  on  many  occasions,  was  hellafun.
 
   -  If  anyone  doesn't  know  what  oNu  means  -  it's  one  Nation  under,  founded   by  Tj  (i  think?),  WFx  -  wicked  freaks,  founded  by...  umm...Corps3  ?
 
   -  I  still  remember  a  guy  called  clownshoes,  a  guy  from  Mig's  oNu  tdm.  Somehow  left  an  impression,  a  french  guy  living  in  USA,  wasn't  he  ?
 
   -  Remember  switching  from  Win98  to  WinXP,  and  having  no  idea  what  happened  to  my  mouse  aim.  It  suddenly  felt  like  going  through  mud,  even  though  the  frame  rate  was  the  same.
 
   -  Remember  1v1  q3dm17  days,  and  how  we  used  to  beast.  Remember  going  50-0  for  the  first  time,  later  increased  that.  Remember  a  guy  called  Gog3ta,  from  those  1v1  days,  was  a  beast  as  well.  Remember  oNu  aMock,  who  amazed  everyone  in  1v1s  @  q3dm17,  just  later  to  be  found  a  cheater.  Didn't  stay  too  long  with  oNu,  no  idea  why  he  hacked  though,  was  a  cool  guy.  So  many  great  days.
 
   -  My  greatest  achievement  was  getting  into  oNu,  I  think,  overall,  from  q3  freezetag  days.  I  was  a  hothead  teenager,  with  a  ping  of  over  200,  yet  I  still  managed  to  overcome  more  fortunate  USA  players,  and  I  did  that  by  hard  work.  Still  remember  those  40-80%  accuracy  games  on  q3dm7,  mashing  WASD  to  go  in  circles,  matching  my  breathing  to  it  and  only  shooting  on  w  a  S!  d,  on  the  S,  which  was  backward,  and  put  the  model  in  a  straight  line.
 
   -  Also  remember  concentrating  so  intensely  on  quite  rare,  yet  regular  oaccasions,  I  got  huge  adrenalline  rushes.  And  in  huge,  I  mean  -  near  death  experience  huge,  I  had  been  in  an  accident,  which  basicly  did  the  same  thing  as  mouse  and  keyboard.  Really  strange  how  the  human  body  works.  
 
 
 There  are  many  more  things  to  remember,  I'm  sure.  Glad  you  all  still  hang  around  here,  and  drop  down  some  lines  from  time  to  time,  still  have  this  page  bookmarked.
 
 Time  to  go  out  for  the  Valentine's  day,  <3  ya'll  !

 Starting  from  the  beginning  will  be  hard  so  I  could  very  well  be  off  on  some  of  the  dates  but  i'll  try  to  remember  to  the  best  of  my  ability.  
 
 I  began  playing  Quake  3  around  2001.  I  saw  friends  from  school  playing  at  a  public  library  after  school  and  decided  to  give  it  a  try.  I  got  addicted  right  away.  My  friends  would  only  play  at  the  library  but  when  I  got  home  that  day  I  decided  to  download  the  demo  on  my  PC.  I  think  eventually  over  time  everyone  from  school  had  stopped  playing  but  I  didn't  care  too  much  since  the  real  multiplayer  was  more  more  enjoyable  than  just  playing  against  friends.
 
 The  first  servers  I  can  remember  playing  in  were  the  [!]  Dinks  rail  server  along  with  another  server  grapple  hook  server  ran  by  GENOCIDE's  brother.  I  can't  remember  his  name  unfortunately.  I  think  at  the  time  this  was  before  the  NoGhost  mod  had  been  fully  developed  by  Maverick.  I  still  remember  people  clipping  through  walls  in  those  games  so  I  can't  imagine  the  NoGhost  mod  being  implemented.  My  memory  of  clans  is  very  vague  at  this  point  since  it  was  so  long  ago.  I  do  remember  PK^  and  [!].  PK^  was  the  clan  I  wanted  to  join.  I  would  see  their  players  all  the  time.  I  don't  think  I  ever  really  had  a  shot  to  get  in  while  the  clan  was  active  but  towards  the  end  I  did  get  in.  I  remember  Radiation/Gangularis  giving  me  shit  all  the  time  for  being  so  noob  at  the  game.  I  don't  know  what  happened  to  PK^  to  make  it  die  but  I  do  know  that  a  few  people  split  off  and  created  the  #1  Clan.  
 
 It's  really  frustrating  for  me  to  unsuccessfully  remember  all  the  cool  people  I  met  at  this  time  but  from  memory  I  can  think  of  a  few  names:
 
 -  Vegetable
 -  Whodat
 -  Kenny
 -  Happyness=)
 -  Hater
 -  Gangularis/Radiation  (obv)
 -  GENOC!DE  (obv)
 
 There  are  way  more  people  I  am  forgetting  at  this  point  but  I  just  can't  think  of  their  names.
 
 
 So  PK^  was  dead  at  this  point.  I  wanted  to  make  my  own  clan  but  didn't  really  care  who  was  in  so  Vegetable  and  I  made  =rX=.  Funny  thing  about  =rX=  is  neither  of  us  knew  what  it  stood  for  we  just  thought  it  looked  cool.  
 
 Even  though  rX  was  my  clan  I  did  get  bored  of  it.  I  specifically  remember  being  a  clanwhore.  I  never  had  any  allegiance  to  one  particular  clan  for  quite  a  while  just  because  I  kept  meeting  new  people  and  really  struggled  to  stay  in  one  place.  I  joined  and  created  many  clans  around  this  time.  With  all  kinds  of  people,  which  again,  I  still  struggle  to  remember  their  names  lol.  
 
 Nonetheless  this  was  when  I  really  got  to  learn  about  the  game  and  started  to  care  about  playing  well.  This  was  also  the  time  I  first  saw  -oNu-.  -oNu-  without  a  doubt  in  my  mind  was  the  most  competitive  clan  in  1.16.  They  rarely  lost  scrims,  their  players  always  topped  any  scoreboard  on  any  server,  and  generally  were  the  players  I  looked  up  to  in  my  goal  to  get  better  at  the  game.  I  met  Rayden  after  watching  a  scrim  and  immediately  noticed  that  he  was  an  another  level  of  play,  even  from  other  members  of  -oNu-.  Trying  not  to  be  too  much  of  an  annoyance  I  started  watching  him  play  more  and  more  over  time  and  asked  for  advice  on  how  to  improve  my  play.  This,  like  what  Godlike  said,  was  when  he  told  me  about  how  important  low  sensitivity  was.  He  also  used  Q  and  E  to  turn  left  and  right  with  a  considerably  low  yaw  speed  to  be  more  efficient  while  turning  and  cut  down  on  his  mouse  movements  even  more.  I'd  like  to  think  this  is  what  really  helped  me  improve.  I  mimicked  everything  he  told  me  and  immediately  noticed  how  much  better  I  could  play.
 
 After  improving  significantly  I  tried  applying  to  -oNu-  but  once  again  the  clan  was  on  it's  last  leg  so  even  if  I  would  have  been  able  to  join,  which  Rayden  said  was  very  likely,  it  wouldn't  have  mattered  because  the  clan  was  dying.  
 
 After  -oNu-  died  I  started  playing  nothing  but  q3dm17  rail  1v1.  I  ran  into  players  like  amoK  (the  cheater),  ka_puT,  and  Ice9.  Since  I  played  against  these  guys  so  much  I  really  started  to  get  better.  The  harder  the  competition,  the  faster  I  improved  as  a  player.  If  I  remember  correctly  the  2  servers  I  played  in  the  most  at  this  time  were  100mbit  and  #1  Clan  1v1  servers.  
 
 Like  I  said  before  Radiation  and  I  didn't  get  along  very  well.  For  instance  he'd  ban  me  constantly  from  the  1v1  server  but  i'd  change  my  IP  and  be  a  complete  nuisance  to  him.  This  is  when  I  decided  to  change  my  name  to  RoNiN  and  I  attempted  to  join  #1.  If  radiation  knew  I  was  RoNiN  there  would  be  absolutely  no  way  I  could  have  gotten  in.  He  was  a  co  leader  so  his  word  was  be  all  end  all.  
 
 As  I  was  playing  in  the  #1  server  under  this  name  I  managed  to  break  a  pretty  insane  1v1  record.  I  went  80-0.  If  the  #1  forums  still  existed  I  know  for  a  fact  that  there  was  a  screenshot  of  it  there.  
 
 Anyways,  I  actually  got  accepted  into  #1  and  once  I  was  accepted  I  changed  my  name  from  RoNiN  back  to  Nick  right  in  front  of  Radiation  on  purpose.  He  was  absolutely  pissed  and  I  found  it  hysterical.
 
 I  joined  plenty  of  clans  throughout  this  time  being  the  clanwhore  I  was.  But  the  most  memorable  clan  to  me  was  .o2o.  I  met  Meganoob  and  Jedi  when  it  was  just  them  in  .o2o.  and  applied  to  join.  
 
 
 I  don't  remember  the  process  but  I  think  eventually  I  got  in.  Only  Meganoob  would  be  able  to  clarify,  if  he  were  to  read  this,  so  who  really  knows.
 
 After  leaving  .o2o.  due  to  it  being  inactive  I  believe  .eRa|  was  resurrected  by  Hater's  brother  Birdman.  Funny  fact  about  eRa.  I  actually  came  up  with  the  clan  name  a  long  long  time  ago.  I  honestly  can't  remember  the  guy's  name  but  he  was  a  leader  of  HR.  Another  old  clan  that  I  forgot  to  mention...  oops
 
 Anyways  being  clanless  I  looked  for  my  next  possible  group  to  play  with  and  that's  when  I  met  x2v.  He  was  the  leader  of  BC,  an  almost  exclusively  European  clan.  Quite  honestly  one  of  my  favorite  clans  to  have  ever  been  in.  The  only  reason  why  I  left  BC  was  again  due  to  inactivity,  at  least  during  my  timezone,  and  consequently  not  having  any  scrims  available.  
 
 This  is  around  the  time  I  joined  eRa.  eRa  was  somewhat  of  a  powerhouse  at  this  point.  It  had  loads  of  good  players  in  it  and  the  always  won  scrims.  Even  beating  my  old  clan  BC  a  few  times.  I  decided  to  rename  to  m0tive!  at  this  time  as  well.  While  playing  Ra3  I  saw  some  guy  named  motive  and  kinda  stole  his  name  :P
 
 I  think  I  ended  up  leaving  eRa  to  join  UE  so  I  could  be  around  people  like  DoomsDay,  AXEL,  and  a  few  others.  I  was  frequenting  their  Teamspeak  often  so  I  just  preferred  hanging  out  with  them  more.  I  think  also  at  this  time  is  when  I  secretly  became  a  ringer,  along  with  Rayden,  for  the  clan  CoC  who  was  lead  by  KaMa.  CoC  was  a  rail  ctf  clan  and  was  the  main  scrim  opponent  for  eM.  eM  had  another  name  before  it  but  I  don't  remember  the  name.  eM  had  players  like  whaz,  soul,  pyro,  etc.  Whaz  actually  turned  professional  in  quake  live  btw.  Not  sure  if  anyone  knew  that.
 
 Anyways...  after  Policestate  found  out  that  I  had  been  ringing  for  CoC  I  was  kicked  from  UE.  I  was  a  clanwhore  so  it  didn't  bother  me  too  much.
 
 
 I  think  this  is  when  I  made  the  switch  to  playing  exclusively  all  weapons.  I  joined  up  with  HaLo  and  made  GoH.  GoH  had  tons  of  players  from  all  kinds  of  clans  and  since  it  was  all  weapons  only  we  didn't  have  to  worry  about  people  getting  kicked  for  ringing  since  scrims  could  never  be  a  rail  clan  vs  GoH.  
 
 
 GoH  was  a  pretty  big  deal.  We  had  a  lot  of  servers.  A  lot  of  players.  I  remember  after  playing  ra3  and  seeing  that  there  was  an  option  to  enable  only  rockets  and  nades  I  decided  to  adopt  that  idea  had  a  Rox  n  Nades  server  set  up  in  1.16  and  thus  the  first  1.16  rox  n  nades  server  came  to  be.  
 
 I'm  sure  most  people  who  are  still  reading  know  about  GoH  so  there  isn't  really  a  whole  lot  I  need  to  delve  into.
 
 So  eventually  I  got  bored  with  quake  all  together  having  explored  all  different  types  of  game  modes  and  game  types.  We  populated  1.16,  1.32,  defrag,  and  ra3  with  the  GoH  tag  and  there  wasn't  really  much  else  to  do.
 
 I  ended  up  quitting  quake  unofficially  to  go  play  a  shitty  game  called  Rappelz.  I'm  not  going  to  even  bother  talking  about  it  since  there's  no  point.
 
 I  would  however  take  breaks  from  Rappelz  and  come  back  to  ring  for  clans  such  as  eRa  and  g0d.  Oh  yeah  I  also  forgot  to  mention  that  I  helped  create  g0d  with  old  skool.  
 
 I  know  that  I'm  forgetting  way  too  many  things  but  my  memory  is  so  vague  that  this  will  just  have  to  do.
 
 Blah  blah  blah.  The  End.  sort  of

 Good  shit,  Nick.  I  hate  forgetting  all  the  cool  people  I've  met,  too.  I  forgot  all  about  GoH  and  the  Rox  'n'  Nades  server!  eM  used  to  be  xA,  btw!

I  started  playing  Q2  with  some  friends  in  grade  8  during  English  class  and  after  school.  I  couldn't  get  it  to  work  at  home  so  I  installed  the  demo  of  Q3A  and  started  playing  in  Texas  Hell  Freeze  (still  the  best  server  ever,  by  the  way).  Started  playing  at  #1  1vs1  and  met  Damien  and  some  other  #1  people.  Joined  some  noob  clan  (BD)  with  somebody  named  Vinny  and  then  started  playing  at  Flash's  1vs1  and  TDM,  oNu  rail  freeze  (after  it's  decline),  SS  Insomnia  and  Desire.  Somewhere  around  there  I  joined  DTP  and  met  Wolf  and  Hater,  Classic,  Birdman,  Elmo,  Archer,  CoW,  the  Shadows,  M16,  etc.  Left  DTP  because  it  was  full  of  hackers  and  realized  I  didn't  want  to  be  a  hacker.  Became  MDK-T  with  Flash,  and  Stacko,  and  Divine  (Old  Skool).  Left  or  was  denied.  Played  solo  and  joined  TK.  TK  was  killed  to  make  oWn.  (Somewhere  before  TK  I  joined  -oSc-  with  Toxic,  Snipr  and  Vortex.)  Went  solo  and  was  invited  to  dXa  then  dXa  retired  and  I  applied  for  o2o.  During  o2o  I  started  to  suck  and  got  more  interested  in  CTF.  I  quit  (technically  I  asked  them  to  kick  me  because  only  an  idiot  quits  o2o)  o2o  and  stopped  playing  Quake  for  a  few  months  (half  a  year  tops,  maybe)  and  then  started  playing  CTF  only  with  eM.  Applied  for  eM  and  was  later  able  to  teach  Damien  the  ropes  of  CTF,  which  was  fun.  eM  went  to  QL  when  it  came  out  and  I  didn't.  About  4  years  later,  here  I  am...STILL  A  NOOB  LIKE  WHEN  I  STARTED  hahahahaha.


 
 That's  kind  of  abbreviated  but  all  the  main  parts  are  hit.  I  would  have  started  in  2005,  so  I  missed  the  oNu  and  9mm  days.  I  wish  I  didn't  miss  them,  though.  I  used  to  have  2  demos  of  oNu  warring  MDK  but  I  can't  find  them  anymore!  If  anybody  knows  what's  up,  send  them  to  me!!


 
 You  forgot  you're  an  applicant  for  end,  riddick.  2  years  since  you  applied  now.  Look  what  I  found

Started  quake  early  2000,  I  think  it  was  2002,  gr.  6.  I  used  to  play  the  demo  version  in  a  server  called  Hook  Line  &  Sink  Em.  Then  I  started  playing  in  Maverick's  other  noghost  servers  SDSL+FastEthernet+Death=Trouble;  10Mb+FastEthernet+Death=Trouble;  Mongolian  Championship  Tournament  with  people  like  serena  and  majorglory,  but  I  played  casually  and  under  random  names.  LaDy  remembers  the  server  names,  i  stole  it  from  her  post  on  end  site  hehehe.
 
 I  joined  random  clans  like  THC,  most  of  them  had  1v1  tryouts.  I  later  joined  Hater  and  M16's  clan  (forgot  the  name  of  the  clan).  I  started  using  the  name  <-eLm0<-  and  met  Lady  who  taught  me  how  to  better  my  gameplay.  I  met  Hater,  Birdman,  m16,  QuikSlyvah,  Reaper  from  gx,  etc.  Around  this  time.  QuiksylvaH  invited  Lady  and  me  to  his  clan  RK.  I  quit  RK  after  a  short  time  to  pursue  other  clans.  Per  lady,  during  a  three  year  span,  RK  changed  to  many  names  from  RK  to  VX  to  GX  (Generation  X)  to  P.<-  (Point  Blank).
 
 I  applied  for  #1  but  withdrew  my  application  and  joined  old  TK  with  Kenny,  Tek,  Cartman,  hater,  baraka  (Robert/oNu  Delerict).  Became  Dallas  Ref.  Later  I  met  Riddick,  Wolf,  Birdman,  Classic,  meva  and  sandwich,  nOa  Kevin,  whodat,  Master,  THK  from  TF  I  think  (their  tags  were  nice),   Vardinio,  voodoo,  UE  panchovilla  etc.  Had  tons  of  fun  scrimming  vs.  Front9,  AK  and  those  clans  as  TK  during  this  time.
 
 I  used  to  play  in  SS  Desire,  SS  Insomnia,  Forgotten  FFA,  Evolution  1v1,  MDK  1v1,  TK  Texas  freeze  and  sometimes  onu  1v1.
 
 TK  died.  I  created  my  own  clan  hF.  Wasn't  very  well  known  but  I  had  awesome  people  join.  hF's  members  included  Suicidal,  m16carrier,  Darthballs,  ArCher,  Vardinio,  red  shadow  when  he  wasn't  a  cumguzzler  and  his  younger  brother  blue  shadow,  CoW,  o2o  twisted,  sandwich,  stickz  and  stonez  and  few  others.
 
 Kenny  revived  TK  and  I  went  back.  Some  of  the  other  hF  members  came  along  (Suicidal,  M16).
 
 I  left  TK  and  joined  oWn.  I  left  oWn  and  was  invited  to  BC  by  x2v  and  Classic.  I  left  BC  when  oWn  became  eRa  after  the  final  few  TK  members  joined  oWn  (Whodat,  Kenny,  hater).  I  joined  as  eRa  council.  I  might  be  wrong  in  timeline  wise  but  I  think  my  clan  hF  was  resurrected  by  archer  at  this  point;  Key21  spoke  to  Archer  about  a  possible  merger.  I  don't  remember  the  details,  but  Archer  and  some  hFs  members  like  Shadow  (pixel),  m16,  CoW  became  dXa.
 
 I  stayed  in  era  from  start  to  end.  I  had  the  honor  of  playing  with  great  players  while  I  was  in  era  like  birdman,  stacko,  zenith,  carlos,  flesh,  tupac,  rob,  halo,  rayden,  bizzy  aka  whore,  etc.  I  really  enjoyed  playing  with  Bulma,  greatvik  and  classic.  I  improved  the  most  during  my  time  in  era.  
 
 I  loved  playing  against  o2o  who  most  of  us  considered  our  rivals  really.  Looking  back,  I  don't  understand  the  reason  for  some  of  the  hate  we  had  against  each  other,  although  I  do  remember  flaming  o2o  boards  once  or  twice.  
 
 When  eRa  retired,  I  joined  UE.  It  was  great  except  we  lost  every  scrim  we  played...  The  glory  days  of  UE  were  gone  but  they  still  had  some  great  players  who  used  to  come  on  every  now  and  then  like  Plague.  I  played  in  LeBron's  tourney  as  UE  with  Birdman,  classic,  hater  against  vT.  I  topped  the  match  heuehueheu  and  UE  won  and  vT  disbanded  right  after  losing.  I  went  inactive  and  then  eventually  came  back  and  left  UE  to  join  inhuman.  I  played  tons  of  AW  at  this  time  and  became  part  of  o5.  I  went  inactive  and  inhuman  and  o5  eventually  disappeared.
 
 I  came  back  and  created  "end"  which  still  exists  but  not  in-game  lel
 
 Since  I  started  I  met  a  lot  of  awesome  players,  most  of  whom  I  forgot  to  mention  here  and  some  not  so  much  (riddick).
 
 list  of  my  clans:  RK,  TK,  hF,  Own,  BC,  eRa,  UE,  [i],  end

 Ohh  yeah  I  remember  now.  I  really  did  leave  out  a  lot  of  information  holy  shit.  And  I  definitely  was  a  cunt.  Looking  back  at  it  now  I  was  just  an  immature  kid  so  I  guess  that  kind  of  behavior  was  to  be  expected.

 I  finally  remembered  the  guy's  name  who  was  in  HR  with  me.  His  name  was  Indy  I  believe  and  he  was  the  one  who  helped  me  create  the  original  eRa.

 Reaper  when  will  you  be  posting  yours??  Smile
 


 
 Here  we  are  again  -  lunch  break  time  yay.
 
 My  details  blurr  at  this  point;  crazy  to  think  it's  2014  and  we're  still  hanging  around  Quake  3  boards  lol.
 
 I  have  no  clue  the  order  of  events  on  some  things  but  will  do  my  best  to  piece  it  together.
 
 My  parents  got  high  speed  internet  my  senior  year  of  high  school  (2002)  and  the  first  thing  I  did  was  pop  onto  Q3.   I  had  it  for  a  few  years,  not  sure  exactly  when  I  got  it  -  but  had  always  played  it  offline  due  to  having  AOL  dial  up.
 
 The  first  server  I  connected  to  was  the  one  that  seemed  most  popular  on  the  filter;  slackX's  Desire.   The  next  2  or  3  months  I  did  nothing  but  get  raped  by  Damien  and  Sharp  -  it  seemed  like  whenever  I  would  connect  they'd  both  be  around.   (on  a  related  note  -  always  liked  the  #1  tag,  a  shame  I  can't  have  it  listed  on  my  clanwhore  resume  lol).
 
 I  honestly  don't  recall  the  circumstances  but  I  came  across  members  of  a  clan  called  *MS*  -  murder  society.   I  started  speaking  with  Zajp  and  Duditum  and  eventually  ended  up  in  the  clan.   There  was  a  guy  I  seemed  to  play  with  a  lot  that  followed  me  to  the  ranks;  named  Stormblast  (no  clue  what  came  of  him  though).   [DR]  Killer  was  pissed  I  joined  -  he  had  spoken  with  em  at  Texas  Freeze  several  times  and  I  had  gained  the  impression  I  was  going  to  be  a  member  of  DR  so  we  had  a  very  short  lived  clan  rivalry.   The  original  DR  died,  as  did  MS.
 
 Killer  vanished  briefly,  but  when  he  returned  he  wanted  to  resume  what  he  had  previously  built.   So  {DR}  was  formed  with  a  slight  variation  to  the  tag  brackets.   We  never  were  nearly  as  good  as  the  previous  version  -  although  I  had  always  heard  the  previous  version  was  also  plagued  with  cheats.   I  can  only  go  by  hearsay  in  this  regard.   Myself,  along  with  Exorc1st  were  co  -leaders  with  Killer  running  the  show.   Other  names  really  have  gotten  lost  in  my  memories.   I  can't  even  picture  anyone  else  if  I  try.   Maybe  I'll  dig  through  photobucket  when  I  get  home  (oh  yes,  zajp  followed  me  from  MS!).
 
 I'm  going  to  stumble  along  and  say,  despite  not  really  being  sure  the  order,  I  ended  up  in  a  bunch  of  clans  with  Fireandice.   uTk  and  aM  stick  out  in  memory.   Before  that  I  ended  up  with  Fox  in  some  of  those  tick-led  clans;  oBs  and  c*  (old  skool  partly  led  c*  I  believe).   
 
 After  Fireandice  spazzed  out  a  lot  of  people  left  aM  ->  sideshow,  aMaze,  and  I  formed  q3p.   It  wasn't  a  flashy  group  by  any  means,  but  we  were  good  enough  to  trickle  out  a  few  wins  against  the  big  clans  (o2o,  eRa,  etc.).   Of  course  we  lost  a  lot  more  games  with  those  top  clans  than  we  won  -  but  it  was  always  nice  to  know  we  were  good  enough  to  at  least  give  ourselves  a  chance  @  victory.   This  was  actually  one  of  the  most  cohesive  clan  environments  I  ever  experienced.   
 
 Regretfully,I  turned  my  back  on  the  project  with  "bigger  goals"  in  mind.   I  don't  know  if  I  only  speak  for  myself,  but  when  I  first  entered  the  community  and  learned  the  ropes  you  quickly  take  note  of  the  "leet"  crews  and  had  always  envisioned  myself  being  a  part  of  one  someday.   In  earlier  years  I  had  applied  for  eRa  after  leaving  DR  but  was  declined  by  cla$$ic.   That  didn't  discourage  me.   After  leaving  q3p  I  app'd  for  UE;  and  with  a  little  help  from  DimensionX28  (who  I  became  good  friends  with  in  oBs  and  c*)  I  gained  membership.   Long  story  short  I  stayed  with  UE  for  about  a  year  and  a  half  and  even  worked  up  the  ranks  to  Co-Leader.   In  general  the  rules  and  structure  of  UE  never  sat  well  with  me,  which  as  a  leader,  put  me  in  a  lot  of  conflicting  situations  (Plague  also  ultimately  had  similar  conflicts).   This  marked  the  first  time  I  left  UE.   I  was  granted  membership  into  -gOd-  by  MegamanX  and  oldskool.   I  recall  using  the  name  sabre,  and  having  a  pretty  sick  forum  sig  lol.
 This  period  must  not  have  last  long  at  all..  I  have  hardly  any  memories  of  it.
 
 Again,  the  sequence  is  blurry  but  I  know  I  ended  up  in  pWp  for  a  while  (multiple  times)  and  H$  (multiple  times,  lol!!).   
 
 Long  story  short  I  ended  up  back  in  UE  and  was  granted  my  leadership  role  back  immediately  by  Policestate.   Jaime  and  Metallicat  flipped  out...  both  quit  due  to  it.   I  never  got  along  with  either  of  them  so  it  was  a  "good  riddance"  situation  to  me.   I  could  sense  there  was  some  others  in  the  clan  who  didn't  really  agree  with  me  regaining  my  title  immediately.   They  all  were  right  to  question  it  though...  I  would  end  up  leaving  again..  but  this  time  not  due  to  my  own  choosing.   There  had  been  a  "drought"  of  sorts  in  the  scrim  world  of  freezetag.   I  was  getting  impatient  so  I  brought  DR  back  as  a  club  to  catch  some  games.   Now,  I  admit,  the  rules  clearly  stated  no  clubs  etc.  etc.  however,  the  rules  were  written  when  the  game  was  very  active  and  there  was  absolutely  no  need  to  seek  scrims  elsewhere.   I  was  warned  about  these  actions  and  asked  to  discontinue  them.   Ultimately,  the  fact  I  ignored  these  warnings  led  to  my  removal  from  UE.   The  overall  situation  left  a  real  bitter  taste  in  my  mouth.   I  had  been  friends  with  shadow/pixel  for  quite  some  time  at  this  point  and  was  also  speaking  with  Jesus  fairly  regularly  in-game.   It  seemed  obviously  to  me  the  logical  next  step  was  to  apply  here  @  o2o.   
 
 I  was  accepted  and  remained  a  member  here  for  (I  want  to  say  6-8  months??).   The  clan  went  extremely  inactive  and  a  few  of  the  guys  who  were  active  left.   I  made  the  decision  that  I  wanted  to  enjoy  what  was  left  of  the  game  and  moved  to  the  most  active  clan  in  the  game  at  the  time,  n2p.   I  was  promoted  to  Council  there.   The  hilarious  part  about  this  is  as  soon  as  ultimate,  rawwwr  and  myself  left  Calie  and  a  few  others  returned  to  activity  and  o2o  was  scrimming  constantly  lol.   You  fuckers...
 
 The  rest  is  a  clusterfuck  even  though  it's  more  recent.   I  ended  up  back  in  UE  at  some  point  with  Shini  leading  the  show...  hmmm..   I  formed  foq  with  a  bunch  of  old  friends  when  all  the  other  clans  seemed  to  die  or  go  inactive.   Then  I  moved  onto  Quake  Live  for  a  while.   A  year  ago  I  joined  end  and  remain  a  member  there.   We're  very  inactive,  but  it's  hard  to  be  active  in  a  game  with  only  one  real  public  server  I  suppose  lol.
 
 Good  times..
 
 In  closing,  I  didn't  re-read/proofread  any  of  this  so  if  any  of  it  has  omitted  words  or  typos..  fuck  you.     Very Happy

 UE  always  did  have  the  most  ridiculous  rules.  Didn't  sit  well  with  a  lot  of  members.  And  OMG  WHERE  HAS  JESUS  BEEN!?????
