Old NetMech/Kali/PPP/Zone/MPlayer People?
« on: August 30, 2008, 11:01:41 AM »
Just curious if anyone here played Mechwarrior 2 competitively on mplayer. At least I believe it was mplayer, its been a lot of years.
I was a member of Clan Phoenix, name was ZulMech. It was my first online game and probably still my favorite. It was also my first introduction to lag, one could only actually aim at another mech if it was either running straight at you, away, or walking backwards. Otherwise, one would have to find the sweet spot which was usually around a second ahead of the other mech. So every shot would appear to be missing on both players screens, but yet would be tearing the mech up. Good times, took some skill, especially with the awesome jumpjet system of Mech 2, with 6 keys dedicated to them.

We had scheduled clan battles, official ranking systems, training sessions, everything. Every rank in the clan corresponded with a mech weight, so for example, lower ranking members could only drive the corresponding light mechs. When a higher rank opened in the guild, two lower ranks would fight it out for the next rank, the first to 5 kills won.

Good players were known and respected within all the clans. Anyway, those were my glory days of online gaming, just thought I'd share and maybe find a few people who used to play there as well.

Some old names I remember: Clearlight, Universe, Luckshire, Schwin, Valor, Kitfox(RIP), Joboo

Sure do. Mw2 on Mplayer was my first introduction to organized clan matches.  I remember my first solo win against Mottdahoop from Clan Jade Wolf.  I was recruited in Silent Dragons by Sabrina, the best female player in the league.  It made such an impact in my gaming career, I helped expand the clan into other games ( all the mw games, counter-strike, wow, guild wars ) and remain semi-active today in Guild Wars. Its hard to believe that was a decade ago. The last few remain mechwarriors in the clan are really looking forward to MWLL so we can relive the glory days again.

SD was one the biggest clans on Mplayer so I'm hoping I'll bump into a few of my former clansmen here.

MPlayer!  Now that's a blast to the 14.4 modem past.  I hadn't discovered 'Mech back then.  Spent all my time playing the original Quake on MPlayer before I found out about QuakeSpy or QSpy or whatever the precursor to GameSpy was called back then.  What about MechCommander on MPlayer?  Any of ya'll do that?

Rumor has it that there may be some "old" MW2 pilots from TKZ around here. I sure would like to hear from them if they are here.

I do see a few names that look familiar, but are they the same pilots?


Khan Tofar
Nite Wing
Clan Mongoose
TKZ

Interesting, I remember you, but I went by Teron for MW2. Although I honestly really don't remember very many of those names at all myself.

Believing is seeing...

Anyone from Kali MW2 DOS Grand Council league?
« Reply #12 on: September 25, 2008, 04:55:47 AM »
Hey everyone,

I've had Crysis for a while, but I haven't played too much because I've been busy..howevever I became really excited when I heard about the potential for this game.  I was just hoping that there'd be some people who used to play in the Grand Council league off of Kali back in the day.  I also played mechwarrior3 and some 4, but I'm not quite sure what league it was.  I think some was in the NBT league.

I played mainly in Steel Viper back in the day..originally the Khan was Swampie, other leaders included Punkrasta, Steelfist, my neighbor Splicer...etc

Same league also had an active HH, JF, Orgasmatron from FM, Verdic from SR, Blondi in NC.

I also played in FWLM, with Marte, Cyberkut, some others..

Edit -  I was also in House Jurai for a while.

Anyhow, sorry if this is random for a lot of you who may have browsed this.  I'd really like to hear from any of you on these forums, (or anyone who knows the people I'm talking about).  I'll be looking for a group of some sorts when the time comes, thanks.

I'd love to hear from ya if you were around during that time period!

Wasn't playing Mechwarrior while I was on Kali, but I do recognise the names of those FWL guys. I haven't seen Marte in ages, but Cyberkut should still be in FWL in NBT-HC. Axen posted a thread for them in the recruiting section.

You should be able to find them through the Netbattletech HC unit listing. House Jurai is still up as well, and should have a website.
