Well Yeah,

It's been a long time. I took a long break after my son was born and maybe that's all you need for now is a break. No matter what happens in the future, I just want to say that it has been an honor and a privilege to have spent as much time together as we have. I wish you all of the best and more. As you had implied, for a game from 2004, Unreal has lasted probably longer than even the original writers had projected. As for me, I will still put in some hours now and then as time permits. Probably until the servers are removed. I hope that one day we might look forward to another match together. Best regards and always best wishes. HM

Thanks howlin! Yeah crazy how that works... meet random people behind screen names and interact for years...

And right back at you with all those nice things! Yeah I remember distinctly thinking "hmm howlin is back from a long break" and glad to see a consistently good dude back in the game.

We'll cross paths again I'm sure. I even found this forum once looking for long lost UMG folks... where there's a will there's a way I guess
https://www.epicgames.com/unrealtour...-you-out-there
I'll still be combing through these forums for a while at least.

Even though I've been awol for years, it always saddens me when, to quote Queen, another one bites the dust in
the )o( community.


This place has always been special and will be (I hope) one of the last servers hanging on by it's tattered fingernails.
You sir, contributed to that specialness, and will be missed.

I've felt that way occasionally as well. But life is also about doing the things you love, and for me UT has been one
of those things. I don't play any other PC games and when (hopefully many many more years) UT2K4 does go the
way of the dodo bird it will be the end of my gaming "career". I commend your resolve to move along, pretty sure
I couldn't do that.


I envy your musical talents. Be well, and best of luck with your walk down the road of life...

Career, lol... hey there are some mind-blowingly awesome games other than UT2k4. Don't be that dodo bird - learn to evolve and adapt!

I could ban you for that comment....




Nah, way too much else in life to enjoy for this old dawg. That being said, I know UT2K4 will live on for at least a decade
(Freon at HoC will anyway). But you're right, never say never.

Thanks carpe! And yeah this has been pretty much the last game I'll ever play aside from an occasional session of dusting off my SNES. New games just don't do it for me, not even FPS ones. Something about the the movement or the way they play seems padded... like you're playing out a movie or something instead of a game.

No way ONS will live that long, if there are no more new maps for it. I won't be playing the same marathon matches forever. We used to have several new maps each year at the beginning of the decade. Last year, there was maybe 1 SLIGHTLY edited map? A doctor could tell you that ONS is having stage 4 cancer now.

There's plenty of maps available the problem is that they don't ever get voted. Honestly, I'd kill to have a stock server to play ONS on but alas those days appear to be gone for good.

Exactly ! UT2K4 is the perfect blend of realism/cartoon imo.

I can't tell you how many times I tried getting "retro" weekends going. Stock ONS maps/vehicles had their issues, but
in the end they were always the most fun maps to play. But hey, I'm and old dawg...

Old dog here too. What I wouldn't give to play in clan matches and pick up games again. Strategy and communication was such a huge part of competitive ONS and really can't be replicated on a public server. The intensity just isn't there for me on these new maps. There's just too much downtime in driving vehicles across the map etc where in stock ONS you could just dive right in. Didn't matter what vehicle you were in or if you were on foot, you always had a chance to win against any player in a vehicle whereas with some of these newer vehicles you have zero chance of winning the battle i.e. goliath vs Mino etc. Don't get me wrong it's still fun and appreciate the server but it's just not "my ons" if ya know what I mean.

Same. Other games I've tried just feel too slow and the movement too boring. Here's to somehow there being a big comeback for 2k4 lol
