    Continued.... I enjoyed me some age of empires 2 but there had been alot of time away from the rts genre. Then i discovered war craft 2 and star craft kind of late after their release. I enjoyed both games quite a bit in the single player realm and someone suggested to me to give command and conquer red alert 2 a try, i loved it. Im pretty sure i never played warcraft 2 or starcraft again after that. I rolled from red alert 2 into revenge, then generals, then zero hour, the modern warfare take on rts just had my attention. I initially missed this little game release called warcraft 3 because who needs that fantasy junk..... Boy was i wrong, i dont partake in rts much anymore, so i may be behind in the times, but my favorite rts of all time is warcraft 3 hands down, the addition of hero classes and an rpg-like story was great. Next... Oh your liking rts kid? Why dont you leave the kids table, ever heard of Total War?...

    Business is always open at BRS. Our standards don't waiver tho. Must join our discord and get to know the crew. Must play some games with ducati and myself. We evaluate based on personality on comms and gameplay. All are not accepted but we make a joint, subjective opinion if prospects will fit with the group and help us grow. Look forward to seeing you all on the field.

    Continued... Back to fps's, i dont know if any genre appeals to young men more. As much time and fun i got out of duke nukem, counter strike, etc I dont know if any fps was just flat out more fun than Unreal Tournament, of course you cant thank Unreal Tournament without looking to the original Unreal. Unreal was the first fps that I purchased a good graphics card for and probably the most impressive jump in graphic's engine quality (that water effect tho!) before crisis arrived on the scene. Games today still use the damn unreal engine. Back to unreal tournament, the mods, the announcer, the game modes all of it was awesome and on a good pc it looked great! Still probably the best game to do that Capture the flag game mode. Hell just thinking about unreal tournament makes me want to go get a sound pack of it. Unreal tournament and Unreal would go on to have sequels but for one reason or another their originals are burned into my mind as the most memorable in the series. Next... Oh the RTS genre... There you are my oldfriend...

    Continued... I enjoyed my story driven games in the late 90s but most of them had an action adventure feel to them, tomb raider, metal gear, etc. I grew up in a small town and the idea of playing d&d, magic, or any of those type of games always interestes me but would have surely made me less popular than i already was. Then i played baldurs gate (and later baldurs gate 2), i completed that entire game in marathon sessions and i was extremely engrossed in the world and my character. I could make the story unfold by the choices i made and that was amazing! I realized i would come back time and again to the rpg genre in its various form "to get my fix". Around the same time i heard about this game series called Ultima online... A series told to me by a friend that was a rpg played online and you could be and do whatever you wanted, i sadly never played an ultima online game but that idea of a shared rpg experience with open possibilities haunted my imagination, little did i know this little thing called an mmo was out there waiting to catch my attention, but i would be late to the party on that. Next... "Headshot!" "Killing Spree!"

    Continued.... I grew up on a farm, we didnt have dsl or cable (still my mom doesnt) . The best thing for internet was the 56k modem. So we had 2 phone lines and i would spend evening occupying both of them. Playing counter strike with a friend from school while i held the phone on my shoulder to coordinate our attacks. I never played counterstrike "pro" but i did pretty well on the servers i chose to use, even got good enough at the head shot that i would use the mp5 just to show i could. I was in a clan called SWAT and i cant remember what the hell it stood for lol. Speaking of servers, gamespy was my server browser of choice. It worked really well and i miss the days of getting a reputation on each server and getting to know the people you saw regularly. I also miss the days of text chat only comms, i hate voice comms with random people i dont know in todays fps. Disable that and go back to text chat where i dont have to hear these pre pubescent shitheads. Next.... I get absorbed by my first pc rpg

    Continued... I began to really enjoy Age of Empires 2 also on MSN Gaming Zone, even created a clan over there, I didnt put much time in it, but it kicked off my love of strategy games that exists to this day. You name the strategy series and I have probably played it. In 1998 this game called half life was released and I didnt know it then, but many hours of my life were about to be lost playing some version of this game or another. The single player version of half life and then half life 2 was probably the most intriguing storyline I ever experienced outside of an rpg. Gordon Freeman, a nobody for all intent and purposes stopping an alien invasion and chasing down that slippery little g-man, it was genius! The multiplayer realm of half life would be what captured more of my hours than I could count. The action mod(akimbo!) , day of defeat mod, team fortress classic mod, counter strike mod, and countless others were amazing. All of todays most popular fps can thank half life for getting them to where they are. Next… counter strike on 56k, 2 phone lines at the house, 1 for gaming, 1 for voice comms.

    Continued... Multiplayer gaming was done in lobbies or servers back then so you got to know the people you saw on a regular basis. Tournaments were hosted by clans usually by invite. You could fight for custom made graphics and play people in a bracket format. If you won you got your name on the “trophy” and you saved it to put it on your clans website. I won my share of tournaments and even hosted a few of my own. Clans like VDS (one of mine), IRN, KRT, JCS, Prince, to name a few off my head were always top of the Cases ladder and the difference between the casuals and the competitive was very apparent. Cases Ladder was a constant competitive environment. You played your way up the ladder and the loser had to report the results to the website to keep track, if you won you jumped half the distance towards the person you beat. I climbed to the top 20 and was stuck there for a long [edited]time. A rival of mine was named Nemesis (fitting). He probably cheated and definitely upped his latency for advantage. I made it to #2 on the ladder with Nemesis being stuck at #1. Now the #1 ladder person always intentionally avoided the #2 person. The #1 person could only lose his spot if he was beaten by the #2 person. So after alot of bickering and some complaining to the Cases Ladder, Nemesis was forced to play me. Over my time in JK I lost to Nemesis in teams or solo probably 80% of the time, but this time I could not let that happen and I beat him straight up. #1 on the ladder!! As time moved on JK maintained a small dedicated community but I started getting pulled by other PC games and online environments. Next… I branch out….. This little game called Half Life.

    Continued... The juvenile me realized that the name Supermax was pretty lame, and I had just started reading Romeo and Juliet in school and watched the movie, that is of course when I met the character Tybalt. Tybalt was a master swordsman, a villian to be sure, but he followed a code that did not waiver. Tybalt is so skilled in swordmanship (pistolship in one of the movies) that his enemies know they have lost before they even fight him so they refuse to fight. It fits perfectly with playing a game revolved around lightsaber dueling. AND most these uneducated [edited] have no idea what a Tybalt is so for trash talking purposes its great. I think all that is awesome so I change my name to Tybalt and setup my email as Tybalt. I am completely addicted to JK DF2 and the MSN Gaming Zone organizes its multiplayer games by lobbies so its very personal on who you fight and rivalries (and friendships) are formed. I have continued to use the handle Tybalt in some form or another for every online video game I have played for the past 20 years. Next…. Competitive juices get flowing and enter Cases Ladder!

    Continued... My video gaming world was alot of fun in the mid 90s, dabbling on the consols, LAN partying with the [edited] computer. Duke nukem 3d came out and it was the coolest thing I had ever seen. I will never forget “im gonna rip off your head and crapdown your neck” and then he [edited]did it! Quake was creepy and a blast. Mortal Kombat 1 and 2 was fun with friends. The original Resident Evil is probably still my favorite of that series. I finally bought my own computer with my parents assistance and then a friend let me borrow his Jedi Knight Dark Forces 2 game to install it, and I kept disk 2 so I could run it (you remember). My first real entry into online gaming was under the name Supermax in 1997ish playing Dark Forces 2 on the Zone (later renamed MSN Gaming Zone). I came to love Sabers Only NF (No Force) duels. I joined my first clan, later advanced to co-leader and took that crapover! Now I was just a noob at that game but I quickly learned how fast movements, playing the latency, and planned attack strategies could combine to win the game, and there was nothing better than the tears of the dude I just wipped in a best of 3 match. Console gaming still existed in my life but it would forever take the back seat to the master race of gamers. Next… The creation of Tybalt..

    Of course it all started as a lad. First on the old atari then the normal nintendo. I never did beat mario brothers but duck hunt was my jam. Best of all was Mike Tyson punchout. The 90's rolled around and I continued my nerdom on the various systems, But then, sometime in the early 90's i played wolfenstein 3d on a school computer with friends. Shooting nazi’s never gets old. My family got a pc, this slow as crapmachine didnt do much i can remember but it did run Doom and I understood that pc could offer something in gaming. I then started playing FPS on LAN and learned how much fun it can be to just dunk on folks….

    It looks like its my turn at story time with BRS. Over the coming days I will give a brief history of what got me too World of Warships in online gaming and maybe it will bring up some nostaligia feels for old "back in the day".
