    Question So you made it to campaign 31

    So funny story, I was in the shop today talking about history and stuff and talking about old email addresses. We started talking about old hotmail accounts we abandon years ago. I dug up my old Hotmail account and look at that among the 50,000 spam email messages that a 12 year old email account gets per day is a email notifying me about campaign 31 (Which has already ended).


    Forum activity was what I expected but man this has been a trip down memory lane. Per my private messages I've not visited the forums or talked to anyone here since December 22nd 2011. Seems I had a fight with someone called "Outlaw" about equipment placements back then leading me to resign from Div staff (I remember none of this mind you) then I exchanged messages with Pyrriche about possible maps for campaign 26 and then... four years of nothing.

    My memory are of WaW 8 to 14 of individual battles, I can recall the halfhearted 16 and 17 battles, the full battles of 19 and 20 and then... nothing. I was in WaW from 20-25 in some capacity but I'll be damned if I recall any of it.

    That and the fact I sold Sword my old video card is the only thing I remember from that stretch of time.

    Re: So you made it to campaign 31

    Well hello there.


    I sort of remember things the same way. I can recall every detail from campaigns 12-15, but I barely remember what happened in 16-20.

    I'm digging back through these, I don't see anything earlier than 2010 so it looks like my old blackmail material on Trexer did not make the forum move.

    Here's PM's between Avrojet and I bitching each other out... I sure as heck sound angry about something but since both of us know what we are talking about in a thread no one can read anymore who knows what that was about.

    Here's Quervo's sixteen page manifesto on strategy I do remember that mostly because it was a toss up between me liking on in-depth he was and me sad that no one besides me and maybe Stubby read those (*Nope found a pm saying Stubby had no time to read said manifesto)

    Here's a section about politics in 2010, red zone violations from early 2010 and the PM's stop there. So campaign 21? I don't remember campaign 22 and 21 at all.

    Also I may have been a touch plastered when I wrote the OP, I'm honestly interested in how many of the old hands are even still around. Stubby, Squarebasher, Paasky, and I assume Kommisar checked out years ago. Looks like Aryton and Soldier as well or maybe I'm reading those activity dates wrong.

    So who's left?

    Re: So you made it to campaign 31

    well I'll be...never thought you'd show back up

    campaign 21 you were on map team

    in 22 you were axis with grail etc; axis tanking, iirc

    many people's activity is low lately due to a need for an interesting game platform

    Re: So you made it to campaign 31

    By todays standards around here i'd say im still active.. produced much of the pacific stuff we used last campaign. Square is around, paasky got married and only checks in occasionally. Kommi had a short return a while back (might have been quite a while by now).

    And on the manifesto.. while i do (did) read most of the crap, big walls of text where often left on me, i could never really see the point. Keep it short and to the point is the way to go.

    Can't believe it's that many years since we all had our share of fights with adder.. time flies

    Yeah I found myself in a Battle of Britian video someone posted up on Youtube today. Specifically I saw myself getting blown up over and over again by Stukas. I have no memory of any of that.

    Yeah, you get old, you don't know it, then time tells you but it lets you keep going, cause you won't listen, then later, well you get so old you get owned by every damn body and then you say ****, I have to figure a new way to play to beat the faster trigger fingers.

    Damn I miss the arguments we used to have. Love you man.

    Nice to see you drop by Adder!

    The only real memories I seem to recall are getting yelled at how **** a squadleader I was (but somehow promoting me to Lt that same campaign) and the 26 panzer 2's we once bought in campaign 20 I believe!

    I was so convinced that plan was going to work. I remember getting to the battle a few hours in and was dismayed that it was a spectacular fail.
    I was also convinced adder came allied just to read through the entire private forums so that he could go back axis and know all our secrets. Like George c Scott in patton...."I read (rommels) your book, I read your book you sonofabitch!)"

    Re: So you made it to campaign 31

    Turning 21 basically killed me being active. But good to see you are still breathing Adder, I was a tanker captain 2 campaigns ago? I barely remember. Most of my memories are 13, 14, and 20... Everything else is kinda blurry. I guess drinking does that to you.

    Weird to think its been 8 years since my first battle....

    It was a simple issue of great on paper, good in practice... flawed in battle. The idea of having every solider in a tank equipped with HE worked fine when it was 8 vets VS 8 infantry but when we got the new guys not wanting to drive tanks forward, tanks being abandon and the travel time on that map it fell apart.

    It could have worked with a campaign 10 division but a campaign 20+ division we did not have 15 people for every spot they wanted to play. Fatigue becomes an issue.

    That time issue makes everything odd.

    Re: So you made it to campaign 31

    The 26 P 2's would have worked better, we still wouldn't have won, if we had spawned back in main when we died and kept taking them but we did not. You'd see 10 of them sitting there and the numbers of them were the strats only advantage. Maybe we'd have gotten a round or two and been closer in others.

    Hi Adder nice to see you are still around, I spoke to kommi about 3 months ago he plays a bit of MWO, he was getting on fine at the time.

    I know we had a few tussles in the past on the forums, but on TS we always had good chats, it was great fun.

    How are you doing in RL these days, and do you still game.

    Lol, that 26 P2 battle will never be forgotten, huh? The campaigns I remember are 9 (my first camp), classic (cause it was something new) and 20 (first time as captain so I was motivated again after some mediocre camps).

    Pfff... Young kids these days!
    How's everyone doing? I pop up on the forums now and again, but nothing more past that.
    Adder, you'll always be remembered as one of the most productive and out spoken players in the WaW environment, just not sure if that's a good thing or not...
    Anyway, I decided to revisit the forums again, because a good friend passed away (Shawn Williams, aka Airborne), and that get's you onto one of those moods, checking back on your younger years...

    Re: So you made it to campaign 31

    I always thought about myself as sort of a youngling, with all the longtimers around me talking about camp's before my time...

    Suddenly, when this thread start mentioning battles I recall, and also some ppl I recall show up (Long time no see, Khar!), I realized I am not as new as I thought I was!

    We aggressively disagreed on paper and were the height of curtsey on TS sounds about right. Sounds like some of the later relationships I had between professors and myself and between doctors and I. In person all smiles and happiness but via email the knives came out.
    I still game but about the only place any of you are likely to see me is Bf4 of which I have exactly one friend on the old friend list from BFE and TechX and I have not been in a game together for nine months now.

    I've been checking the thread every few days to see if anything new popped up and I'm sorry to hear about Airborne, I did not know him well but I am sorry for his loss.

    Also good to hear about Kommi I always wondered what besides kids had happened to him after 14.

    Still going strong up here in the cold north!
    Finally started studying (shipping and logistics)after one free year, and one year in the Royal Norwegian Navy.

    Everything well down south?

    Re: So you made it to campaign 31

    As well as it can be, for the time being.
    Was diagnosed with a brain tumor a few months back, but, apparently, the treatment is working, 'cos the docs told me there was a void in my brain... I honestly believe they switched a few words and should've said that there's a brain in my void, but I won't be picky.
    Daughters are fine, and so is the wife, apart from being crazy and staying married to me.
    Cat is totally mental, broke 3 headsets in the year he's been part of the family.
    Computers are going out the window, the laptop is totally messed up, despite cleaning its insides it still heats up too much.
    Desktop just freezes every now and again...
    All in all, no good prospect for gaming

    Re: So you made it to campaign 31

    Wow... A tumor?
    Damn... Good that the treatment is working!

    I actually think that is pretty normal behavior for cats, as the cat of a friend of mine is ALWAYS trying to lay down on his keyboard when he is gaming (and it gets angry when his GF doesn't watch series on the computer either, since it is watching them too).
    Our own cats are just lazy bastards who runs for the kitchen (or lies down in front of the refrigerator) whenever we are just slightly moving in that direction.

    Have you tried to buy external fans for the laptop? That helped for a friend of mine (and myself, before I bought this new stationary PC)!


    Excluding the tumor and such, it's good to hear that it is going well for you!

    Computers are going out the window, the laptop is totally messed up, despite cleaning its insides it still heats up too much.
    Desktop just freezes every now and again...
    All in all, no good prospect for gaming
    I see I'm a bit late to the party and most likely missed you even being back Khar, but I figured I should stop and say hello!

    You were one of my closest internet friends for several years here at WaW and even though that was, holy ****, like 10 years ago, the memories of that time are still pretty deeply ingrained. I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis but if I know you you'll be far too stubborn to let anything slow you down. Best of luck my friend, glad to hear the treatment is going well.

    Wow. I decide to have a look at the forums for the first time in ages, and there is a large collection of old farts discussing memories of a better time, long long ago
    So is this place still "alive"? I use TS to talk to some of you every once in a bit, and it's fun to see that people are still checking in!

    Adder, you always did have a convenient memory. We are all getting older, good Lord willing.

    Glad you are doing okay. Good to see guys posting.
