Thank you, quadz!
« on: September 02, 2018, 04:37:12 PM »
I'm feeling very appreciative right now. When did the tastyspleen servers originally go online?

I took a break from playing Quake 2 at some point in 2011 or 2012, I believe, and came back for a bit, earlier this year. Around March, I was caught off guard in finding myself somehow interested in playing Q2 again. It was so nice to see that, even after being gone for 6+ years, the tastyspleen servers are still alive, and there still seems to be a reasonably-healthy playerbase playing daily.

I want to say thank you to quadz for everything you do to keep these servers up and running, and for free (to the players) no less. I've gotten so much enjoyment playing Quake 2 over the years, and a huge aspect of that has been the accessibility of the tastyspleen servers. I really can't say thank you enough.

Have you ever thought about making a little blurb on the history of these servers? For a game nearly 21 years old at this point, it would be kinda cool to have just a small bit of info about this server (when it started, if it was thought it would still be around after all these years at that point, where it's located, something about the community, etc.), as it might just be the most-active community in all of Quake 2 that's still around. I'd have to think that's true, at least for non CTF or Action Q2 (if those mods are still alive and well).

Since this corny post was made...

He's very helpful and a decent guy. And as long as you're half-way decent, he'll give you the benefit of the doubt. Quadz's fairness has always stuck out the most to me.

Even now, I can still recall THE GREAT MERGER OF AUGHT FIVE, wherein the TDM/duel community first joined our insular group of FFA enthusiasts.

The ensuing 'cultural enrichment' was a sight to behold.

Yeah, y'all definitely got a culture shock. I played with punk in a time where EMR, 4u2, and FAS were my introduction into competitive play. Probably 2001. I thought punk was the greatest player there was. Then I went to proxima and assassins gxmod and met a guy called pyr3x.

By the way punk I notice you're on top of the leader Boards, good for you man. Ya still got it.

Thanks :) I've been playing like mad lately, since August 25th (iirc), so I think my play time is mostly responsible for the high frag count. I turned 40, and now 41, and somehow I'm playing better than I ever have. That was after such a long break too. I honestly was a little uneasy about starting to play again last March, because I was afraid doing so would reveal that my age was catching up with me. I guess not... not yet anyway. Hopefully it doesn't happen anytime soon.

Edit: Oh, and, Haunted, I remember around the time when I first met you in-game as well. I forget how old you were, maybe a teenager or something, but I recall your ping was horrendous, like hovering around 300, and you were mostly focused on jump maps and jump tricks at that time. I guess times and connections have changed as you're a pretty darn good dueler these days, from what I understand.

I went by ZeRo back then, then pinged. haunted started in 2004. I slowly got better in between years on and off of playing, but I really wasn't any good until 2012-2013. I stopped playing in 2014.

Having a hard time finding people better than you at a video game? What a tremendous bore it must be for you to play against we the lowly peasants of this land. We apologize profusely, mi-lord.

Haha, but nah I'm not that great at dueling.  The guy I did play often recently turned into some aliasing weirdoh and now avoids me because he's afraid I've progressed past him.  supertrololololol

I know who you are ya big idiot. This is my goto place online to chat football even though I haven't played in years. And yeah I'll chime in on other things while I'm here. By the way, you weren't talking about me in the post above, right? There's several people who have called aliases me over the past few years and they're wrong.

I've noticed that people always overestimate how good the alias is. As Dr pain and e ipa I'd get called ah! and naymlis more than anything, two players better than me. Unfortunately there's an even a bigger contrast with some of these aliases people say are "haunted"  :lolsign: :raincloud:
