    But there are levels of Veteran.
    There's veteran which is good for the ten percent off all oil chances in Finland level.

    Then there's Veteran's which is good 25% off all Swedish rocking chairs to grouse how much better things were in the old days of FH1

    Then there are Veteran's who remember the "good old days" of BF1942 Vanilla campaign play.

    I don't know about that adder, last time I checked it was still being debated. But I remember the rule being something along the lines of 1 year or 3-4 campaigns.

    I thought the rule was, you're a veteran when you know you're a veteran?

    Yea thats the rule as far as I know.
    And the answer to George question would be then; if you have to ask if you are a vet then you are not one of them.

    There have been several reports of unqualified quacks working as VETS in Finland, reducing the populace's trust to the profession, rather treating their pets' ailments with aspirin suppositories and large oral doses of quinine and operating on them with a steak knife and fork.

    You're not a vet till you hate 100% of the current players.
    So when do I get my title?
    The thoughts and statements of Dr.Tree do not reflect those of the tournament. On top of that, he's not a very nice guy.

    You aren't a vet unless you've been around long enough to know Wonderbread when he was a fun guy to hang around with.

    When you make friends with the admins.

    Edit: Wait I've got a one!

    You aren't a vet unless you remember the old forums.

    Back before the days of the wife, kid, house, Scion (and the Land Rover!), and real job.

    From what I've seen only former Generals/Admins/MT have it because, I believe, it gives access to the Future Development Forum so they can banter their ideas about the tourney even if they haven't been active in it for many years. I suppose that does require being an admin friend as well since plenty of people who held such positions aren't given it because the admins don't value their opinions.

    Veteran status? From my point of view there will be no new veterans. If you weren't around by my second campaign (eight) and have at least some name recognizability still I won't consider you a vet.

    I think he's the only reason I played the first campaign I played.

    **** yeah, MFOTS.

    Anyone remember reverse Omaha in campaign 8? I remember the Axis losing horribly for the first half of the day, then someone decided that every soldier would only use a panzerschrek. We won that round.

    No, I remember Gym-Bo deciding to single-handedly obliterate the five-over rule on Omaha Reverse: dropping to five players, getting Allies to drop to ten, taking a flag whilst Allies couldn't ably defend the two front ones, loading the rest back in, and winning at least a round. Beyond however many that brought in, Axis got trounced every round.

    Doesn't he play 21cw now? Seems like I've seen that name over there recently.

    I remember hating the new forums for a long time. I still prefer the old ones looking back on them.

    Listen Sally, everyone knows Team Turbo ascends to levels of Super Saiyan previously thought unobtainable on a regular basis.

    PS, were the registrations from the old forum carried over to the new forum? I know the new ones weren't around in 2003 like I see some people as registered in, but I'm super curious how 49ers fan registered like four months before me considering Tree and I found his worthless *** while stealing some helicopters in Conflict in Somalia.

    Double PS, I recorded the conversation that dutch, mokum, nemein etcetera had on TS shortly before they all were banned/disappeared to F|H.

Don't know if there are so many supporters to them around here anymore though.


    .Mudi
    I'll back you up on Tg front Wolverines in WaW14 where pretty badass though. It seemed like we could capture or defend any flag on any map against at least 150% our numbers plus tanks.

    As far as tanking goes though, campaign 9 was definitely where it was at. Sure the Guards Tank had all the veteran tankers and thus tried to proclaim very loudly that they were the best, but the Probyn Rifles still had a pretty good tank force and the campaign in general saw some of the best tanking I've ever seen. Plus, I don't think there was ever a time with a tank tryout with at least 10 new players being certed with an opforce of 10 veteran tankers to battle against them.

    And those were the days when it was actually possible to play BF1942 on 56K
