HOME HISTORY THOUGHT-OF-THE-DAY PICS
I started playing decent and doom. Then in the fall of 1999 with HL and counter-strike when my brother introduced me to those games. I was accepted into my first clan playing counter strike in the winter of 2000. The Strength and Honor [S/H] counterstrike clan was a group of @Home workers that started their own clan. One hosted the server on a cable connection to his home with the pipe wide open. I maintained the web site http://www.strengthandhonor.com/ till summer of 2010 when I sold that url for $425. That clan competed in CAL, OGL, IGL, & STA starting with CS to Global Operations, Americas Army, & Battlefield 1942. That clan folded in the spring of 2003, and I joined another BF2 clan (Patton's 3rd Army) for a two seasons of CAL till that clan folded in the winter of 2003.
I started playing DoD in winter of 2003 due to being head admin on the Maxiumgamer CS and DoD game servers, and head admin on the forums. I was head admin due to the relationship of Ixian with S/H leaders. With Ixian staring his gaming center business, he dropped the pub servers completely, and revamped the web page/forums to the new business. So, I started playing DoD on other servers. I joined a DoD clan in Fall of 2004 (Let God Sort'em Out, LGSO). I left that clan in spring of 2005 with Stinger, Hambone, and Madcap when we had a dispute when the leaders started making up rules after the fact.
We had already been playing for some time on the StormTroopers server, and played StormTroopers in several matches. I continued to play on the StormTroopers server. I got know the members. Stinger, Hambone, and Madcap had been accepted into StormTroopers about 8 month before I was accepted in Apr 06 and jumped back into league play. I was soon promoted to assistant league captain of the DoD:S CAL team. When CoD4:MW came out, I stepped down from DoD:S and stepped up to CoD4:MW when it was released in Nov 07. We have played leagues and ladder in CAL and TWL. Now that CoD:WaW came out in Nov 08, it has brought us back to WWII. CoD4:MW2 was release in Nov 09 with no servers. A sign the industry that we supported and grew, was abandoning us PC users.
Issues of RL, gaming rig down, and starting Master program, I stopped playing on-line in January 2010. Stormtroopers clan servers and web site closed up shop in October 2010. RIP Stormtroopers Clan 2001-2010.
Finished my Masters in Dec 2011. Bought the new rig in Feb 2014. Starting playing with Titan Fall in Mar 2014. Started playing BF4 in summer of 2014. I played some CoD4:MW, but it was pure enjoyment to play DoD:S again. I found the eGO servers fun to play on and you will find me there..........
