Oi.. So many people.. So long ago.. My name back then was Jono, I was in TNA with Shoyu back in the first version of the clan, some of my all time best memories reside back with that group.

I still remember the first day I ever made the discovery that NZ even *had* a TF community, I had been playing with near 500ms pings on US servers and dialup. The improvement of being able to play on games3 was just incredible.

I hadn't been in the NZTF scene too long, when one day Shoyu asked if I wanted to join the clan he was forming. I have to admit at first, that my reaction was 'no0b'. I'd seen a lot of people wanting to form clans around that time, and just accepting any old person who didn't currently have a tag. (xTreme anyone? They came later.. But still.. heh)

But I happend to be on the opposing side from Shoyu on this map when he asked me, so I made a point of fighting him when I came across him. And holy hell could he send me my ass on a platter. So I chatted with him a bit more, and ultimately joined him in TNA.

Shoyu became the guy that I learnt like 80% of everything I knew about the game from. We spent countless hours dueling together, honing my abilities as a soldier (primarily). I always felt like it was a losing battle fighting him, he was a legend, in every sense of the world. Shoyu could totally own me. I never felt any better while doing the hours long sessions with him, but every time, when I hit the public servers again afterwards, I really saw the difference.

So yeah, Shoyu is way the heck up there on the list of guys I admire, along with everyone else from the original TNA crew, Wuffle / SpiderFly I especially remember as a good guy.

Adunaphel (Pull! Aim! FIIIREE!) whom I still keep in contact with also could own me at will, and put in a lot of hours in training me up when SE2 was in round robin 1v1 mode (my favourite style for quite a while ).

As did Purge. Another really great guy, who owned at TF, whom I really regret losing contact with.


I also really admire and miss:

Shrimp / Slime / Wibbs

DiGriz, Master.. Damn.. There are just so many, was so long ago..

I hope most of all these guys are still around to give a big 'how the hell are ya?' to.

Jonan and bliP I also remember, from the times when I came back for a while to test the waters..

So many good people.. I miss you guys!

Long live TNA! Long live NZTF!

Oh, and one more addition.. I know we never really got it off the ground..

But I also admire all the talented mappers that helped contribute to TFO (Team Fortress Olympics)

We got some great maps off that.. The spy breakdance map.. The Platform dueling thing, that Wuffle and I made, the hieght jump map.. I think I still got a copy of a race course we had made up as well..

A lot of these maps I still have actually.. I wish I had stuck around to really see this take off.. But I think we had quite a bit of fun with it at the time, so yeah.. I admire everyone who really took part in that original whacky thread I made, and then actually contributed with some cool event maps.

omg! Those maps are actually hosted!

Man.. That platform map sure does bring back memories. It was insanely unfair to some classes. rofl. Basically, scout / medic owned it cos they had conc grens, HWGuy could own it cos he was pretty much immobile while firing his main weap. Sol vs Sol duels were fun, but usually pretty short lived..

But ah well.. I think it was a fairly exciting map, one of the first maps I ever worked on. Although most of it was Wuffle's, I did the 'detailing' (if you could really call it that) underneath the platform, and the lighting in it if I recall correctly.

Anywho.. Jonan! Good to see you again man, good to know you're still around.

Theoretically I would agree - but if TF2 comes about - we might get /some/ new interest.... It aint over till the weight challenged lady sings.




But she is warming up.

Hardly. When TF2 comes out - aside from being more than 5 years overdue - it will bring with it a new community of players. I am also willing to bet that 75% of these people will have never played qwtf.

If TF2 ever actually releases, I'll likely be back for it. Geez, I still remember the joke a few of the guys pulled years ago 'bout downloadin the demo, had quite a few in on it too.

Bastards the lot of you! *shakes fist*

Not sure if it is still up now, but I checked TF2 website not all /that/ long ago.. like less tha a year ago, and it still had the '99 / '98 or whenver it was info on it. hehe.

Yeah to both

Married now, been with my lady for about 4 years. Both working and doing degrees while trying to juggle kids. Busy and stressful but awesome all the same. Don't really have a lot of time to play anything much (have bursts) but still frequent the forums a little.

How did England go for you?

Pity we didn't keep a better record of things, duration of clans, game wins, etc...

Be nice to look over an accurate overview of things for old times sake. All I can remember are the comp winners:

SE1 - TFT (go go indy frags and no pm)
SE2 - X-es (SJless)
GS - PnP/HMF (what a screw up that was)
Rejuve - Lah (heh, a lot of noses out of joint in this one)

There were a few other comps like the one Planetquake hosted (Greengods (if that was his name)), SE3 (KG came back) and a few other minor *cough* 'fun' comps that all failed to finish (and in some cases start).

Ah the fun of it all
