Title: Houston Vehicles elite Tribes 2 Server Returns
Post by: terracon on February 08, 2009, 01:11:59 PM
PRESS RELEASE

For immediate release

Houston Vehicles elite “Where Machines Of War Blaze Paths Of Bloody Fury” The epicenter for team based combat, on an epic scale, returns to the Tribes 2 universe. Houston Vehicles elite would like to invite all |HV| members, friends and cannon fodder to stop by and say Hi! (vgh). Mark your calendars for Friday February 13, 2009. Fly a shrike or drop some bombs, attack those generators, it's up to you. We're in full production and open for business, thanks to our hard working admins. The Houston Vehicles elite server you knew and loved is back. All previous maps and scripts have been re-installed by our scripting guru, Wembly. He even has some ideas for new features. So let's populate the server.

Of course, all this would not be possible without the Tribes Next project. Houston Vehicles elite would like to thank the Tribes Next developers for their hard work and creative approach to finding a solution to the authentication problem after Sierra/Vivendi turned off the master servers.

Houston Vehicles elite, Tribes 2 server, returns with these features.

    * HVadmin mod.
    * No team damage.
    * Vehicle eject/locking.
    * 64 player capabilities.
    * Bandwith pipe the size of.. Well it's big. Remember, it's a series of tubes.
    * Intel Xeon processing power.
    * Vehicle centric map rotation. Many maps modified and built exclusively for Houston Vehicles elite.
    * Crazy Tricon 2 effects, used sparingly of course, muahahahaha!

The grand opening event will be on Friday February 13, 2009. Festivities will be running all day and the evening session should be pretty crazy. We wouldn't have it any other way. This is Houston Vehicles elite.

LoL this is what im talking about that great leet attitude I am so miss from days of comp play. What are you afraid of some of these so called newbs own your ass maybe? were not a comp server were a pub server main reason TD is off is so the admins dont havta deal with people complaining about being tked or having to deal with the people who Team kill people for the fun of it.
         That way the admins have alot less headaches to deal with and can actually
play the game  instead of babysit players the whole time understand. yes it may be newb friendly but you still have to aim where you shoot to kill your enemy.
If you dont like it I am sorry if there enough people to vote TD it will pass and we will play with it on no big deal.Dont wanna start a flame war but I just dont get where the attitude is  from I would think that after eight years of this game that most tribes players would have grown up by now maybe not.
 We are trying to offer something different for people that want to play base nothing more like we did on Houston Vehicles eight years ago.If you dont like it there are plenty of other great servers to play on and enjoy.But dont knock it till you try it these so called newbs  may give you more game than you can handle. We welcome anyone who wants to play what I think is the best online game I have ever played.
can you make it so other teammates satchels won't damage my satchel?
 
sorry cant help you with that one.

Best regards, blindkilla

No, not as long as certain schools of thought which require as a part of their fundamental nature the constant broadcasting of their adherants superiority and the likewise constant insistence of everyone else's inferiority and deliberate persecution of said adherants are allowed to continue harassing the members of these forums without being held accountable for their utter disconnect from rationality.

In short: It's ALL a QiNgSPIRACY ZOMG!

Sounds great, the only thing I would be wary of is fridays, specifically evenings, is when ewo does its FNF deal, which is where a good portion of the base/vehicle lovers will be on fridays, and we all know splitting the community isnt a good idea. Maybe saturday or something would be better for a grand opening?

Maybe this is what we get for playing a game where future humanity has fractured into tribes that bitterly aim to slaughter each other on a regular basis.

Or it could have something to do with us all building enemy bases right next to each other... can't imagine the neighborhood is great...

I'm excited to play some base. Not sure how i feel about no team damage, since it's usually just a headache for the O, but it'll be nice to have a lifespan of more than 20 seconds when the mortars start to fly around home base.

People already have a non-comp server, but with TD on. TD off is great for people that like to sit back and spam or satchel everything, but when the players affected by the spam (like cappers) realize there is a better alternative (servers with TD), they'll leave and then your mortar/satchel spammers will have nothing to do.

So whats wrong with another I say? The reason we did this was because we saw some posts in here asking for a server that ran base like HV and MV did.So that is what we did.Funny I see tons of mortar span and satchel spammers on servers with classic mod and TD on all the time.How do I know well I like to play defense and by trade from my TWL and BEML days war a turret farmer and my turrets get blown up all the time by my own team with spam just a fact of the game.We are just offering a different choice like it or not.

I'm sure the base server will do just fine.  The servers that have had TD off never had a problem in the past, what's different now?

Pretty sure the only difference in HV mod is that more vehicles are available to the team.

Are you also going to kick people who out-shrike your admins constantly just like back in the day?


Title: Re: Houston Vehicles elite Tribes 2 Server Returns
Post by: WiiMote on February 08, 2009, 10:27:41 PM
Only people I ever saw kicked were the players that were caught cheating, or bitched too much at the admins.  I played on HV and MV constantly when they were around.


Title: Re: Houston Vehicles elite Tribes 2 Server Returns
Post by: Kryand on February 09, 2009, 12:04:02 AM
"Caught cheating". Where oh where have I heard that before...


Title: Re: Houston Vehicles elite Tribes 2 Server Returns
Post by: WiiMote on February 09, 2009, 01:35:21 AM
So you cheated?  Sounds fair to me.

I mentioned that I used a custom soundpack once that made hearing cloakers easier, got banned for it.  I removed the sound pack, emailed an admin about it, even stating that I honestly didn't have proof that I had removed said pack, but I saw their side of things and that I was sorry..  I got invited back.

Maybe a bit of humility is all that it takes?  I'm sure you showed plenty of that.  If it wasn't cheating, then look at the second reason.  The admins probably wouldn't take kindly to your attitude.

Really doesn't make a difference in the end anyways, does it?  Why would you care how they run the server now?  It's not classic, it's not worth your time, and you've made that abundantly clear.  So what's the purpose of even posting in a thread about a server that's running a BASE variation?


Title: Re: Houston Vehicles elite Tribes 2 Server Returns
Post by: Kryand on February 09, 2009, 02:18:41 AM
Umm... what are you talking about? The point is: bad servers with bad server admins will kick people for being better than them claiming they were cheating. It happened on HV back in the day, happened on Rebels, and happens on any other server that is run by idiots. I am just doing what I have always done since I started posting here: making sure that this community stays informed of the facts.

PS. I wasn't even the one who was banned from HV. Wildcard was (one of the several). Remember him? He was on this forum being nice in several threads, and has always been that way. He sure as hell wasn't banned for his attitude; he was banned for being better than the admins. Plain and simple.

Im sorry your boyfriend got banned kyrand, it seems to be a serious issue and he is welcome to play. I have been a member of HV since the beggining pretty much, and I will tell you that there were a few admins that I couldnt stand. The admins that put this together were die hard t2 players and they have stuck together this whole time and they are really cool guys.

P.S. - Im not an admin just a player

  I am an admin On HV and I can say that I have never banned anybody for being better than me thats just silly and I am sorry that this happened to your boyfriend really. That being said HV has gone through many changes over the years and the admin group as changed hands a few times over these years.I am pretty sure the admin that kicked your boyfriend and that admin group are not around anymore and we do things much different now then were done back then.
Myself and Terranova are the only admins That are around now that are the same.
I personally have only banned two people the Whole time I was one who just recently posted  on are forums and we are letting back on are server,The other actually was a player  who admitted that he used cheats in are forums.I cant speak for the other admins but now everyone has a clean slate and whats in the past should stay there for the good of the community we have now because things were different back then.
     
   So I am sorry if I take it to heart if you attack the server.I just dont get the attitude of some people The old classic VS.Base debate is getting old and tired I happen to play both . I am just happy to bee playing tribes 2 again with some friends that I have known for years now.So have a good day hope to see you on the battlefield.

Facts?  Sorta like your opinions as well?

I don't see why anyone should believe someone that claims subjectivity as fact.

It's not a classic server, therefore it's part of Qing's conspiracy to kill tribes2 and it's his solemn duty as the only true fan of the one true tribes2 to be as mean as possible to counteract the "coddling" we get from playing base or anything other than classic and it's derivatives.

Read his webpage sometime, it's very enlightening when you get to the paranoid rantings at the end where he starts screaming about how Qing and anyone not playing classic is subhuman.

I've posted quotes of some of the interesting parts before, his behavior shouldn't surprise anyone by now tbh. What we should really find shocking is that he still somehow hasn't been banned yet despite almost every post he makes being just to flame or troll people.

HAI BLIND!!

Anyway, pleasantries aside, I am glad that HV will be back. I will be looking forward to getting back into the swing of things on a server that was one of the most populated (and, near impossible to get into during it's prime) of servers.

Well, given that it will have it's grand re-opening in a few days, I better get to work on a map or 2.

Nothing like making a new map to celebrate the rebirth of a great T2 server!

Speaking as someone who was there when your pal or tribemate was banned from the server, I can say that the head admin at the time was himself removed because of heavy handedness when it came to banning people left and right.

Now things are different, the group of admins that will be running this server don't have broom handles up their asses.

I ask that you give us another look if you're itching to play tribes BASE as an alternative evvery now and then. If you can't stand the thought of doing that then leave the folks that want to play alone.

As one of the Super Admins that you'll be talking to if problems like this come up, I think I'm a pretty level-headed guy, so relax.

I'm here to tell you that we have a clean slate and want people to start over, we welcome you.

QFT.

I've known TerraNova for a long time. We had our little headbuts in the past (Actually, it was me and Mister13 who had the biggest, god rest his soul), but, in the end, it all blew over, and we went on with our lives.

That's the kind of person TerraNova is. He is a "forgive, but never forget, because forgetting means we learn nothing" kind of person.

If ever there is a level-headed admin and person, TerraNova is that person.

Yes.! You've probably seen it in the server list. We've been double checking our maps and going over everything so that it works right. Wembly (http://hvelite.com/gallery/albums/userpics/11038/wembly.jpg), our scripting guru has been going over a couple of things. We're good to go.

Houston Vehicles elite presents.

Every Sunday Night on the |HV| Tribes 2 server will be Chaos Night.

The brainchild of |HV| member Sexy Aphrodite (her artwork gallery here ). Chaos night as she named it, will be dedicated to chaos as only Houston Vehicles elite can do it.

What kind of chaos are you talking about?

I think the best way to describe this is to look back at what we did on some previous “Chaos Nights.” Since Houston Vehicles elite Tribes 2 server has Tricon 2 effects at their disposal the admins could really go in many directions so there will be a lot of variety and a ton of fun fun fun.

    * How about death match mode? Sure. Team Damage turned on. Ok!
    * How about Machinehead's Flag Arena with the huge concussion mortars, or even Shrike mod.
    * How about Death Warrants being issued? No problem!
    * Invisible “Wonder Woman” shrike given to random players.
    * Fireworks?
    * How about shocklance mod where you only have a shocklance. Mortar mod where you only have a mortar.
    * Havoc Wars!
    * Hunters. Yard Sale!

I could go on but I think you'll just have to experience |HV| Chaos Night for yourself. This only happens on Sunday nights at Houston Vehicles Tribes 2 server. “Where Machines Of War Blaze Paths Of Bloody Fury”

Chaos Nights are only on Sunday nights and your regular CTF server will return Monday to Saturday. Bring a friend and enjoy Chaos.

Yours Truly,

Your |HV| admins

 P.S If you need Tribes 2 and the NEXT patch.Get them from the Downloads section . They've done a lot of work on this patch so let's get playing!

is there a reason that HV announcements sound like infomercials, complete with retarded crap like “Where Machines Of War Blaze Paths Of Bloody Fury?”  seriously?

"Where Machines Of War Blaze Paths Of Bloody Fury" has been Houston Vehicles's tag line since 2001. You may want to check out the way back machine RIGHT HERE (http://web.archive.org/web/20020809191354/http://www.houstonvehicles.com/) . As you can see the website is archived and that line has been there since the beginning.
it doesn't keep it from being lame and stupid

Is it possible for these machines of war to blaze paths of lagfree blood fury? Because every time you hit, or kill someone in your server there's a full one second delay before you see your shot hit and their death animation.

Thanks for mentioning this. Wembly, our scripter, added improved vehicle explosions. Although these look really cool we think that they added some lag to vehicle explosions. Wembly said they were processed on the client and in no way affect "lag". Well this conversation went back and forth several times and in the end they were removed. We would rather go for stability , for everyone, than eye candy.

No offense or anything, but I'm going to be candid here--Wembley is right. The only thing the server needs to know for a vehicle explosion is what file to use, it doesn't matter if it's custom or not, the only difference is what you'll visually see on the client's end. I'm willing to wager that the lag is still present on the server, and I'm not sure if it's because there were so many people on the server or not but it's something that definitely needs to get fixed. I even remember this type of odd lag when you guys had Houston Vehicles up before. Everyone in the server swore there was no lag, but that's because they got used to the death animation/shots they shoot at people (that hit) having a one second pause before they actually see it hit or the person actually does die.

Do just the animations lag or is there genuine lag between a kill shot hitting and a kill shot registering with the server?


Title: Re: Houston Vehicles elite Tribes 2 Server Returns
Post by: blindkilla on February 16, 2009, 03:42:17 PM
it might have been due to the explosion script for the vehicles which has been removed,I had no lag issues along with many other but this was the first time the server was actually full so it was sort of a test run.We think we have fixed the problem test it out and let us know what you think.

I perceive it to being lag. It's not just lag for killing blows, either. If you mid-air disc someone, and they don't die from it, you still witness a delay between your disc leaving your spinfusor and the server showing you that you hit the enemy, and that it had an effect on their health.

Next time the server is full I'll join and give it a go. If the lag is still persisting, I'll fraps exactly what I'm talking about, as well as fraps me in another server (like Goon Haven) to show a side-by-side comparison.

Watch the net meter and see if it shows anything interesting. You might also want to watch system resources.

That would help you decide if it is some sort of client-side lag (caused by your explosions) or a server issue (which is what it probably is based on what Anarchy said).

I know blindkilla will probably go into a rage over this post, but hopefully it is useful to the more level-headed and socially-normal posters/Houston Vehicles staff.

  lol my friend you seem to be the only one still in a rage as stated above if you read the posts we already removed the vehicle explosion script and I have talked with a friend of ares  from England who was having problems with the script and  he stated things where fine now.It maybe something else we will have to wait and see when the server fills up because I personally along with many others arent having a lag issue. thanks for suggestion you may want to take some of your own advice and stop being so defensive and aggressive yourself and take a deep breath and let it go.You seem to be in such a big hurry to be hostile with me you havent read some of the above posts actually discussing this issue

I find you can generally tell who to ignore off the bat by looking for a few signs in their screen name:

Any words like assassin, killer, thug, gangster, are classic warnings.  Especially when they replace the -er with an -a.  When two words like these are combined, "thuggangsta, killacriminal", or if they have some sort of adjective attached displaying how great they are, "ExtremeSniper, EliteGangsta, MastaSoldier", you should avoid them at all costs, especially when the words are misspelled in some "street" fashion.

Numbers or symbols exchanged for letters are also a great way to know to avoid someone.  "J0hnnyK1||5" is a great example.

Also, if they feel the need to display the fact that they are a minority in some way, "AznSoulja, Afreakan", you should probably just pretend like they don't exist.

If they add those characters that look like a letter, but have a little tail on it somewhere, or is upside down or something...  you know... the ones that you have no clue how to type....  Yeah, those guys are real bastards, especially in MMO's.  If they ask to be partied, I just tell them that you can't figure out how to type their name.

Shifting back and forth between capital and lowercase letters constantly for no apparent reason is a great sign.  If they don't understand basic concepts like capitalization, they're probably mentally unstable.  "pRiVaTeRyAn" is an example.

Dragon Ball Z names?  Just no.

Finally, anyone that includes extra "cool" characters in their name, especially the letter x, are also players you want to avoid.  If they have these characters at both the beginning and the ends of their names, make them your prime target for death.  "ZZZxXaZnUlTiMaTeSn|p3rElItEGogetaPicolunksXxZZZ" would be a dead give away.

All of the above rules can be ignored depending on how clever the player is being about classic annoying names.  The same extremely exaggerated name above, could be accepted if the player appears relatively sane.

This is a public service announcement.  Thank you for your time.

Originally was ElectricMindFunk from an email addy.  I had trouble getting one, since everything was taken at the time (even ten years ago), so I took my old one at the time, MindShatter, and mixed it with my sister's, ElectricHiigh, then tossed a third word in for good measure.  I used that for a while.

After that, I switched between SultanOfSwing and Mr.SelfDestruct.  Both songs that I enjoyed quite a bit, and they made decent screen names.

Now, I use WiiMote, picked it up almost right after the term was coined.  It's kinda silly, catchy, memorable.  It also helps show my support for the Wii, despite the general dislike for it in certain communities.

If a name that I use is taken already (happens on occasion), I'll either use Torl or Dyre for RPG games, or I'll just use something from pop culture.  Played as SpacemanSpiff for awhile on UT.

everyone crys about spammers and satchels what i cant understand is why anyone would like TD lets take goons for instance. Most of the time you team spamms mortars anyway and just ends up killing there enitre team and its farm and its HOF just to kill some scout dude near the base. My average death per map is 1 to 4 deaths and 3 out of 4 of those are teamkill from some noob with a mortar using it in his own base. Or better yet if your team is even more stupid they put up mortar turrets in a TD server and NUKE there entire team and all its deffences gotta love that one.

 As far as im concerned there is no place for team damage when you are dealing with the collective brain power of a cock roach. You can waste your time arguing this or you can just ADAPT like any good player should. I see people that cap flags they come from the same direction every time in a shrike and never use any other stratagy or tactics then they complain about spamers when in fact it is the complainer that just does the same thing over and over and some good players sees that and adapts and kicks your ass. So the moral of the story is ADPAT dont do the same thing over and over and over and over and over and over and over and OVER (bet you knew i was gona say over LOL my point exactly).

Such hostility...brings back to good ol' days.

And, honestly, Blindkilla's e-rage posts are NOTHING compared to what Pocky does on HV. Him (Pocky) and I got into a spat a few days ago, and there was e-rage spewing from his mouth left and right. Granted, I, too, had some e-rage coming out of me, but it wasn't enough to be compared to him.

So, case-in-point, Blindkilla is just a trainee of "E-Rage 101", where Pocky is the professor and local expert.

Anyway, back on topic.

Honestly, there are many servers out there that players can choose from. What impacts a player's server choice is, normally, one that is run well and where the admins show actual concern from the players on their server. With Tribes 2 getting back on it's feet, it really serves the admins no good to already start alienating people (HVAdmin's satchel explosion spam function on a new player doesn't serve to better the server. Yes, I am looking at you, Terracon, Blindkilla, etc.) who are just getting back in the game.

Taking HV and Goons as examples here (bear with me): Goons is probably getting a lot of it's traffic because it was up and running as one of the very first servers when TribesNext came out. HV came out...a month or so later. Goons running Classic and HV running Base might be factors, but we will put those aside for now.

Because of that one month delay in getting HV up and running, people didn't have much of an interest in it, save for opening day, where the server was nearly capped (I might have been capped out at one point, but you get the idea). Aside from that day, HV has pretty much been dead. Having 15/60 or 20/60 connections during PEAK times, to me, doesn't seem worth the investment in the server rental fees (I am guessing they rent a server, but TwistedColon may actually own it). In contrast, Goons is normally sitting at 50/64 or 55/64 during Peak times. Chaos Night on HV is a good idea, but it's creation hasn't really seen a lot of success (from what I have seen and heard).

To be blunt, unless the HV staff can find a way to get players interested (or, all of the old players come back, which is possible, but doubtful), it will probably die a horrible, horrible death.

I agree with him on the subject of -> Cheats decrease the quality of this game.  Other than that, I really don't know him.

I've never had any problems with The | Sniper. Sure, people get upset over things and all, but that isn't a reason to start jumping down their throat and slashing a sword around until you cut their head off.

Ensign Munro: Goons had such a large crowd from the get-go simply because of it's namesake... the attention that TribesNext got from the Something Awful gaming community. Due to people joining the server, other new people to the game saw that as the most populated server and also joined. I have no idea what the mix is now as I've never kept the server private. It also doesn't hurt that it's on actual server hardware, just about always up (save for maintenance), and hosted on a 20mb up/down connection.

But yes, right place at the right time.

If the TN community keeps going HV will get more attention. As it is, we're fighting the typical war of attrition thanks to Tribes 2 just being so old. People will naturally want to play newer games. Luckily we have this many (new) players as is.

Houston Vehicles did a pretty good job of sucking all the players out of Goon Haven on their launch night. We still got around 30 players after their server filled up, though.


Title: Re: Houston Vehicles elite Tribes 2 Server Returns
Post by: blindkilla on March 12, 2009, 02:17:36 PM
we are not trying to steal players from anyone.People had asked about a base server here that is the reason why we put it up.I myself enjoy a change of pace when it comes to playing tribes,I am glad that we have many servers that offer these different mods and game types simple as that.Unlike some people who like to stick with one thing but to each is own.What I dont get is some of the attitude of people who wish or hope that a server fails.To me any server failure is a loss for the whole tribes 2 community which is still trying to get back on its legs.I am just happy to see more than 2 or 3 servers up and running.I also wanna thank the people who spend there time and money keeping up there servers.

lol thats what you call it. I got a different impression but yeah next time I have a kick vote come up I am gonna call him a moron and kick him from the server instead and see how that works.Then I am gonna write a whole page on how I saw it and post it up instead of the actual logs to prove my point.

Apparently you can't read (the transcripts).
It was a repeat vote-to-kick guy (because he thinks he owns the vehicles/pad).
I stopped the vote, but I didn't kick him or even warn him. I just told him where to file his complaint.

I can't tell if you're being dishonest or can't read...

Although, based on your posts, I wouldn't be surprised to learn that reading comprehension isn't one of your strengths.

I assumed you left because I pointed out that:
* You were a bad player.
* You were a jerk to other people on the server.
* You lied twice.

I didn't realize it was your kind, considerate nature that caused you to leave the thread. I'm sorry that I responded to blindkilla (aka "starting shit again").

I've heard a few intriguing things about the Houston Vehicles server, but the most I gather is that it was a popular server in T2's prime, and now someone's trying to bring it back. A valiant effort, we'll see how it plays out as the TN patch nears finality.

funny this is that the only people I upset are

Actually, it's not the HV boys, it's the goon haven boys.  They stole this thread for their PMSing.

*Edit*  It's not the goon haven boys, it's one goon haven admin who continually instigates these arguments in public rather than taking them to more appropriate channels of communication.  E.g. private message, goon haven forums, email etc...

The only time GH has come up has been when I've talked about the overall TribeNext population. Thanks for your opinion though.

Asking one last time for the next post to be on topic or I'm gassing this thread and blindkilla can start a new one. Anything Goon Haven related (complaints or otherwise) should be sent to GoonHaven.org or the thread on TN.

I suggested something like that while on their vent server a day or 2 after opening, but I was immediately dismissed. It was an idea similar to Friday Night Fights on EWO, however, none of the HV admins wanted to hear it.

Quote from: Ensign Munro
To be blunt, unless the HV staff can find a way to get players interested (or, all of the old players come back, which is possible, but doubtful), it will probably die a horrible, horrible death.

And, therein lies the problem. Aside from 1 or 2 Chaos nights which showed even a small glimmer of a player population, nothing else has been done.

Perhaps it is time to pull the plug on HV?

well no wonder no one heard you since we have no such vent server  and I being one of the admins never heard any such idea from you.So keep living in your magical WoW world and maybe when you stop being so negative and making things up someone might actually listen to you thanks.

just because pocky hurt your feelings when he called you out on TS you have been crying,I think I remember telling you both to stop bitching and you left and have not came back.So please either grow up and get over it and join back up or you can go on pouting about it.HV will be up as long as the server owner wants to stay that way with or with out you.That is your choice.

perhaps you should grow a backbone?

My apologies. Using vent for so long has gotten me use to saying it instead of TS.

But, I digress.

I stopped playing on HV because...well...it died. Simple as that. It's actually quite funny that the admins of another server don't even play on their own server as much as they play on another one. Seems odd to be spending your playing time on another server when you should, as an admin, be helping to increase your own server's population. Perhaps your priorities are mixed up?

And, Pocky? Really, he was just butthurt a lot. Sure, I used the in-game taunts when I got a kill on him. That is what they are there for. Taunts. You taunt people with them. Get the picture? It's not my fault he went into an e-rage over it and started spewing all kinds of shit from his mouth. That's his issue, not mine.

However, I do find it funny that you seem to think that I need to grow a backbone when you are the one who doesn't play on the server you admin for, only to use such a status when you get into a disagreement with someone else to prove some kind of superiority. God complex, much?

And, I am not over here crying about it. I'm actually laughing a lot. It's entertaining to see a good server go down because the owners/admins don't see the need to practice proper PR to get their server populated. One thread about opening day /= proper PR.

Constant community updates about ongoing and upcoming events  = proper PR. Unfortunately, you have failed to realize this.

But, feel free to keep the server going. Tenacity is a good quality to have.

...although foolhardy at times

As for the pocky incident well what I recall is you taunting him after sniping him while he was dueling another player.Wow your awesome then after he begain chasing you down and kicking the crap out of you he called you a pussy for hiding in your base and you had a little hissy fit and left and never came back.

I play and check out HV all the time I cant make anyone play there.we did promote HV and all it did was stir up shit read the first couple pages of the post so we choose not to do it here but on are own website which we did.So yeah I play on another server so what I still play thats all that matters.Do you I havent seen you on at all in months.I know this because I still play tribes everyday do you?

Dont act like you do so much for community when you dont even play anymore ok. Make my day and join up sometimes otherwise go troll The free WoW forums for someone who cares.

You're absolutely right. I shouldn't be sniping him while he is "dueling" with the flag carrier. Doing something like that would completely ruin the equalibrium of the entire game. ::)

And, FYI, I am not on WoW all that much (maybe once a week). I am either too busy with work, school, or beta-testing for various SWG emulator teams. So, yeah. GG on fail assumptions.

Make people play there? Of course not. You try and update your community site? Great for you! At least you are doing something right. Too bad only updating one potential source of players doesn't work well.

And, again, as for the Pocky incident (well, incidents, as there were many), I did keep coming back. Perhaps the problem with it was that you never saw me because you were either not in HV or playing on Goons? Or perhaps doing your own thing in real-life. That, I don't know (just like you don't know what I have been doing recently. Refer to second paragraph). If you spent more time helping HV to build up a player-base, then maybe, just maybe, you would have seen me in there when the server was completely vacant. But, alas, you did not. However, you obviously have time to play on Goons.

So yeah I play on another server so what I still play thats all that matters.

There's dedicated adminship right there. Make sure you let other admins know of this, so that they can copy your example. ;)

otherwise go troll The free WoW forums for someone who cares.

Correct again! Forum trolls normally have well-thought out posts that use factual information to critisize the actions of other people in a way that will ultimtely help them (indirectly) to see their flaws and improve upon them to make their own server a better place to play. ::)

Yup. I am guilty as charged. ;D

But obviously, you do care enough to have made a response. So, I guess my "trolling" is cared for by someone here.

I like how for the first few months of this forum, Abstract constantly bitched at me for being condescending, and now he's trying to act tough as well. At least I was justified.

hey man whats up, been a long time aye? :D
i've been alright, lots of stuff happening lately just trying to find a fun team game like tribes 2 to relax with on my free time
tried bf2142 but it couldn't be compared to tribes 2.. bomber runs or generator raping with a full house havoc of heavy offenses
camping gens... god damn Houston Vehicles was a great server & memory

i just played tribes for abit didnt see the HV, anyways you know any new games that are similar to Tribes 2? (more of a teamwork game, vehicles, classes, big maps etc)
