New or Old Squads?

Post by Phoenix » Sun Nov 30, 2014 3:40 am

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 lately. I kind of feel naked without a tag on my name. I kinda left 1RB abruptly and in disgrace by joining their arch-rival, SS (which eventually had its final death-throes under my watch) so I doubt I'd be able to use either of those tags again...

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)

Holy crap I feel old!

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?

Then we need to get some new blood in this here game! Start advertizing it far and wide!

I currently hold a perfect squad match record and I'd love to add to it! Though 1RB really was a machine when it came to matches - especially when it came to Simserhof Bunker... Fafner actually would pull out sections of that map as sort of mini maps to practice small sections of it. For example, we learned EXACTLY when to pull the pin on the elevator up to the gun to where it would go off at just the right moment to take out anyone camping at the top.

Well we definitely need to get the word out! While it could be tainted by nostalgia, I haven't had this much fun playing a game in years!

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...

You can use whatever tag you want, I think if we throw all active people together, you might have enough players for 1 clan :)

I think all the humans should join one clan. Call it the Waltzing SS.

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 eventually get into is Star Citizen. I already have access to the game and a basic ship, but I'm holding off on playing it for now until it's a bit more developed & I know that it will just suck the life right out of me when I start.

Star Citizen! YES! I need more HD space.....in the same boat though. Waiting for more stuff. At least we can shoot at shit and it looks cool. WOWP sucked once is went open. Not enough people playing it so the time waiting for a game to drop takes forever.

I've been giving my classic battlecry at the start of most of my WoT games and have yet to run into an old DDayer. ;(

Spoon? I've totally seen that before. I'd usually yell mittens at the start.
