Old School Tiberian Sun Players

Recommended Posts

Looking to see if any of the original TON2 players are on here?

 

Me! I'm glad to be back to this. Looking forward to playing this game again and having some good competition!

Good thread and good times! Kudos to those who know what Ton2 even means. If you do, you were probably playing with dial up internet.

Sorry for my long nostalgic rant. Just the mention of Ton2 can trigger this.

 

Now you may commence with the "I never saw you there spo0kycow, your just a modder" replies.

To that I will reply "Go then, there are other nicks than these".

 

Playing Tib Sun on and off since 1999 upon its release, I would sometimes go to Ton2 just for the quiet before it became the hangout. Back then I was shy and did not engage in chatting it up as much as I do now so I sought out quiet rooms.

 

Aside from countless hours of lost sleep, I enjoyed playing games with Seb, Joe, Dan, Mike, Stef, Hileman, getting my ass kicked by Kapa, you sexy beast, and the first game I managed to beat TRZ on Terrace only to have the game recon.

 

I remember one of my first clans, SunGod and meeting abarrat and Lurker90K. My adventures as an admin at the fan created website, Westwood Studios Exposed (WSE) and our direct interactions with Luis and Brett (Westwood Studios founders) and our attempts to get them to patch the game to prevent cheats, which they denied worked.

 

I remember us joking about the patch that supposedly made harvesters smarter requiring less control from the player to maximize their economy that did not work very well. I'm sure there is more than one Forest Fires player that has been top left only to notice their harvester trying to drive all the way around to get to the tiberium it thought was closer despite it being on a cliff, bypassing three other tiberium fields along the way.

 

Remember Sunflight? Ahh the days when a chatroom actually had a live person trying to moderate it before bots and blacklists took over that job. Poor Sunflight and the abuse she endured.

 

I also remember when Westwood would only allow you four nicks per email address. And the system to create a flag emblem for your clan.  Ahh the good ole days. Purchasing Tiberian Sun in Walmart for 50 bucks back when games were sold in big boxes with paper instruction manuals. It did not matter what time of the day or night it was, there was always a scroll bar in the game list lobby window.

 

While I am sure I was not the only one to think of this, the only thing I regret was realizing and sharing with my clan that you could use waypoints to mark buildings before Nod was able to stealth which ended up in the clan newsletter and shortly after it seemed that everyone was doing it. Stealthing became next to useless but that was ok. Back then I was a GDI only player.

 

I wonder if my old friend who gave me the original game, Command & Conquer, back in 1995 realizes the effect he had on my life just because he "was not really into it". After that I put away my Nintendo for PC gaming and everything else changed. The rest is history. And if your still reading this, stop it and go play some Tib Sun!

You have stumbled into the wrong section my friend. Old School Tiberian sun Players cannot supply you with a ranking system or a life.

Yo Spo0ky, long time no see! I don't play any more, but was reading the forums and saw your post. How's it going?

 

Beef - any other logs from the 99-01 era you were using? Not many people on here were around back then, but I remember quite a few old players :)  You weren't 'beefy' were you? Did you play FS?

Yeah, it's funny how FS died out in the end. I think a part of this was because most of the people who moved from TS to FS were the more 'progressive' players, the sorts who are willing to go out and try new things, and as such FS suffered for the fact that most of these same players then went on to other things like Ra2, Dune etc., and various other online games that started to take off around that time.

FS as a game is woefully underappreciated by the majority of the community who have been infected with the mindset that terrace is the only tactical challenge, and TS is the only 'proper' ruleset. I could argue about how flawed this whole way of thinking is, but I guess it's a bit late for that 😛
