Quake / New to the forums.

Hey everyone, I'm new here.  I was wondering where the tastyspleen servers are located at.  I mean, I'm pretty sure they're in Texas, but where at?  Cause I always seem to get pings under 15 to these servers.

I've been playing Quake 2 for years and years now, but I was wondering, how many people still actively play the game.  I mean, when I search for servers now, it seems like only about 10 pop up that have more than 5 people in it.

So I guess I should introduce myself.  I've been playing as [mAd]Dr.Death pretty much forever now.  The first multiplayer game I ever played online was Starcraft, one of my friends got me into it.  Then one day I was over at his house and he was playing Quake 2 online.  The was around the same time that Goldeneye for N64 was pretty popular with my friends.  I was in 7th grade I think.  Anyways, I see him playing Q2 online and I just loved the game.  To me, it was like Goldeneye, except online, and with more than 3 other players.

Anyways, I moved onto Q3 when that came out.  Then I played TFC on halflife for a while, and then I played CounterStrike Beta 4.  I was used to teambased gameplay with CTF and TFC, but that round based gameplay was just something else.  With the realistic looking weapons and whatnot.  Anyways, I played CS daily up until the 1.2 or so release.

Yeah, then I took a break from gaming for a year or two.  And then one of my friends decided to open up one of those lan gaming centers.  And it was there that I saw Battlefield 1942.  Yeah, man, 64 players, tanks, jeeps, planes, giant battleships, maps the size of islands!  Wow, I got hooked real quick on that game.

And so I played the hell out of BF1942, BFV, and then took another break from gaming.  Then later upgraded the rig and got BF2.

And that's about my gaming history.  With any computer I build, I always throw Q2 on it, and I still play Q2 every now and then, especially when I only have 10 to 15 minutes to play.

If anyone wants to add me on xfire, go for it, just let me know who you are.
