    Well, I'm not as old as some of the gamers I've read about, but I nearly pass your age limit by 2X! The first game I played "seriously" would probably be Adventure (that text-based 2-word labyrinth thingie) back in the early '80s.
    Now, I'm a BFV junkie (and a nearly-recovering BF42 junkie, formerly known as "Izzy Dedyet"). I'm most commonly playing as "Y.I. Otta", but have also been known as "Ping Thu Hai", "Jess A. Target" or other tongue-in-cheek monikers depending on my mood (or how well my network connection or myself are functioning that night!) I frequent various servers - mostly the air map related ones (love those Hueys and Cobras!), am a devastating gunner/copilot and an improving pilot, and usually am playing around 8-10PM PST.
    Just found this community when trying to use your server (which ASE *said* didn't need a password, but then the server demanded one :roll: ).

    So that's me in a walnut-sized nutshell, I guess! So, do I pass muster, Sarge?

    Sweet! Then I need to start working on getting a more accurate rating than "harmless"...

    We had a match last night, that is most likely the reason you could not get in!

    Welcome!

    Welcome to TOG! Go have a look see in the BF:V forums and read the folder to get ya started.
    Teamspeak is a must as we like to hear each other scream as the trees jump up and take us out one by one or that invisible SA-7 nails you from across the map. :evil:
    The server will no longer be passworded unless either we all are practiceing dieing or have a match. It should be free now though.. 8)
    CornBREAD is the Couger Squads leader so look for him to get ya straighted up or even any one of the TOG members.
    See ya on the battlefield soon... :D

    ContraVersE (and anyone else who's interested): As for where to get that old text-based Adventure game, I know for a fact you can get it for PDA's now (like Palm, Handspring, etc.) - I HAVE a copy! Guess I'm still not quite over it...

    Thanx for all the welcome messages - I like this forum already! I get so tired of those whiny 12-year-old players with more attitude than brainz. See you all at Hastings, Flaming Dart, Khe Sahn, or who knows? I'll be sporting my new "[TOG] Y.I. Otta" dog tags! :wink: Watch out for those attack-trained trees!

    ...As you finish reading it, the scroll vanishes...

    I hate it when that happens! :?

    So... I still don't seem to have access to the BFV forums! Arggh!
    No doubt it's a case of "Patience, Grasshopper", but I thought I'd have been given access since there have been a few moderator follow-ups to this thread!

    There may have been a few Moderator visits, but none of them have the panache to wield the Mighty Admin Weenie Wand of Power! 8)

    /flourish with wrist-flick

    Just made you a member, wilddeej, so welcome to TOG! (officially).

    As has been mentioned, get in touch with Cornbread to get you squared away for BF:V with the US guys.

    This message will not disappear or self-destruct, but will linger in the internet ether forever and ever. Amen.

    ;)

    Most excellent, and thank you, Your Highness! That wrist flick was truly a miracle to behold!

    Looking forward to getting on with it!
