Re: We've made it to 2015

Of course, after all it is only approximately 25 trillion miles to the nearest star. Very true. But if something like the Alcubierre drive works out, we may travel to the nearest star systems a lot faster than currently even remotely possible. Even if we find that faster than light travel is inhere...

Re: We've made it to 2015

I've always been an optimist when it comes to the future of our species. I know with all the "news" outlets talking about bombings, war, and death it seems like the world is nothing but a depressing meat grinder. But when you step back and really look at the big picture, we are honestly in what migh...

Re: We've made it to 2015

Actually the sun is only about halfway through its life cycle at ~4.5 billion years so we have another ~4.5+ billion years to go. However, unless we advance a LOT more, the Earth will be doomed long before the sun completely burns out and turns into a white dwarf star. As it gets near the end of its...

And thanks! It's good to be back! You should play some yourself too.

Re: New or Old Squads?

Yeah - I play quite a bit of WoT. Have a pretty respectable 54% win rate even. I played a little bit of world of warplanes during the beta. I was really excited for it considering I've always liked planes more than tanks but for some reason, it just never grabbed hold of me. Now, the game I'll event...

I wonder if I should see if I can get admin access on Dirk's server... might be helpful to select good newbie maps or change the number of bots to accommodate new players.

DDayNewbie players?

Occasionally I've seen some people playing with the default DDay name... earlier today, a couple times, there were 2-3 of them on at the same time. I think they might have actually been new(ish) players - one or two had a tendency to TK and they never say anything... Anyone know, if it's even possib...

I'm actually back playing again for reals... Been trying to think of ways to reenergize this community.

Re: New or Old Squads?

Well.. all my real life friends already got an ear full of DDay about a decade ago. None of them are really FPS players anyhow... we'll have to find online ways to advertize it. Too bad none of us have an "in" with one of the bigger YouTube gamer personalities...

Though 1RB really was a machine when it came to matches - especially when it came to Simserhof Bunker... Fafner actually would pull out se...

Re: New or Old Squads?

I've been playing a lot of World of Tanks lately but I haven't had this much fun playing that as I do DDay. Especially earlier today when we had 8 actual peeps playing! Seeing the last talk of a squad match was a couple years ago, I take it there aren't any really active squads now?

Re: New or Old Squads?

Thanks! I did pop in for a game or two about 7 years ago I believe (at least that's when I created this forum profile). I haven't played this much DDay in a decade! (seriously)

While I do technically have a facebook account, I think I'm on it like 1 or 2 times a year! lol

Hey all, I just started playing again after a *very* long absence. I used to be part of 1RB, the orignal SS and one more... possibly SA? I honestly don't even remember it was so long ago but 1RB and SS were the only ones that really mattered. I was wondering if there was any actual squad goings on l...

I actually still play D3 from time to time.... but really, I am disappointed with it. I played a FUCKTON of the original Diablo & a shitton of Diablo 2. With the hundreds (thousands?) of hours I put into the first 2 games, I never actually reached max level with any character. With D3, I'm about to ...

Re: New server Or just some time to play?

Yeah - the more the merrier! We need to get more people playing on the public servers. I've pretty much just been playing on Dirk's server - are there any others I should look for that people play on or is that pretty much it for now?

Re: So.. Yeah, well I missed this?! ..

DDay2 sounds interesting, but honestly I kinda like the old-skool graphics of the current game... I just wish more people could look past and give it a shot.
