All you people who play COD and Battlefield are n003's
Hah. Started to think there wasn't actually anyone who noticed this trend. Yep. Far as I'm concerned, gaming today is sh*t. Insulting to my intelligence, in fact.
I don't think it will ever go back to that level again, to widen the net to bring in more cash, stuff needs to get dumber and dumber. So advancing the gameplay would mean losing profit. I don't remember the last time I played a modern game and: a) Had to figure out how to do something by myself / actually think, and b) Felt a sense of accomplishment after doing so.
Okay? Whatever you call it, you'd still look like a retard if you tried to do that in CS. It's an unrealistic and annoying tactic.
buddy was using toast.net pulling 120-150 ping with a 56k on heat.net, I was always around 200-220 with my 33.6 at the time.
We used to grin at people with the 4-8ms ping who were direct connect, then we'd annihilate them in the da-bomb mod exclusively by heat.net, lol.
Whoa dude that takes me back. Man I remember spending HOURS in the chat rooms, Quake 2 DM, CTF, RA all the time. They even had this point system where you would get free stuff just for playing online. Loved the service. Sega was actually doing OK back then, before Seganet and the Dreamcast. I got a logitech force wheel pro from them, 200$ value at the time. Never seen anything else like Heat.net ever since.....
