I'm impressed that somehow this popped up on my Google Now.

I think I'm going to go take a shower.

But I won't say what kind of stick, because that'd take all the fun away  ;)

I've started playing again after a few months hiatus and right now it actually seems to be busier than it was back then. I think the community has finally stabilized a bit from the last few sales and gotten to a much better ratio of normal people vs. jerky dota types. I was seriously getting turned off by the community the last few times I played but lately it has been pretty smooth sailing and I've been able to play games every night for a good while.

As for stacking, I do see a problem with it still. Used to be that the best part of playing online was playing against your talented friends for an even match. I think the rise of e-sports and streaming services like Twitch, etc. have people focused on dominating the other side all the time, hah. I'm definitely only a mid-tier player but I recognize that sometimes the skill pool in a server isn't so hot and you need to do what is right to make sure everyone has fun. If the community continues to teach new players the ropes, I think the problem will lessen over time as the majority become more skilled. At least these days you'll see two or three skilled players on each side of an average game as opposed to just one or two on one side stomping newbies. Just the natural end result of playing a skill-based FPS with a small playerbase.

I somehow missed the announcements for the big return! Hope everyone is doing well. I've started playing NS2 again these days and I'd love for any of the gang to add me on steam. Username is Incredulous Dylan. Looking forward to catching up!
Announcements / Server may not be up for long

I might be taking the server down, as it doesn't get much use, and I ended up becoming a regular over at TGNS (tacticalgamer).

The site however, will stay up this time.

it's open sauce now so we can finally fix all those bugs that Flayra never got around to fixing

I'm around, I check up every now & then. It's nice to see a friendlier message on the frontpage instead of one that was so dejected

the 80's tercels are probably pretty bulletproof

I've been working on getting this car rock solid. I also have back 1/2 of a 80's toyota helix long bed that I've constructed into a trailer that I tow with this car

Paint & new tires are up next, as well as exploring the head again (my car whisperer buddy doesn't like the way it sounds) I also need to install the extra gauges I just need sensors for them I'm going to do water temp, Oil pressure & battery. Then I just need to get the tube that the muffler connects to shored up & I'm golden. Got the car for pretty cheap  & it gets decent mileage for being an old V8, Got it tinted & put the subs in it. Also saw a 70% improvement in emissions from when I started attempting to pass smog & when I actually passed. I've driven it down from Sac to LA & back towing 2000 lbs one way, didn't even break a sweat over the grapevine. I was picking up a DDR arcade machine

Getting hard to find any games most nights, good or otherwise. Most of the time servers just end up super stacked.
