    Bah. You want mobsters around here? You go to Springfield.
    Only half serious. Springfield has had significant problems with organized crime, worse than Boston in fact, but things have improved dramatically in the past decade.

    Oh yeah... several of the old guys I play with were in a clan together years ago when Medal of Honor was popular and we migrated into COD games. We played up tilll modern warfare after that they all went to the crapper. We have three Outlaw servers now that stay full. In the server browser there are at any given time 500-700 servers online still.

    Going to have an old man yells at cloud moment, but I honestly feel like modern arena FPS shooters just don't capture skill like old games used to.

    I honestly feel that being good at Overwatch is not good enough to translate to being good at some older games, namely UT and mostly Tribes.

    This is from Tribes 1, released in 1998, possibly before a lot of youngin's on the site were born. This kind of physics-based skill is just not apparent in games anymore.



    It's the combination of speed, slow projectiles, and remember, this was in 1998. Net code was horrendous, lag and PL was a given.

    Most people who grew up on Quake / UT / Tribes et. al. (that generation) find games like Overwatch, Battlefield 4 / 1, what have you, a bit of a piss take.

    Finished the three Generation Xth (Operation Abyss/Babel) games. Main stories anyway; I'm ignoring the super-grind post-ending content. I figure it's time to kick it old school with Wizardry VI-VII.

    I see. Last time I checked there were basically no populated vanilla (unmodded) CoD2 servers.
