I am done with UT99 forever... Pfft, yeah right!

Post by EvilGrins » Wed Jul 09, 2014 10:26 pm

Over the years I've heard people say this who, after a few months, always came back. So far I don't think I've ever heard anyone say they were giving up on the original UT that didn't come back eventually. It's why I'm about 85% positive ferali will pop back in here before 2015.

I knew JackGriffin would be back, and he was/is.

Off the top of your heads, how many people can you think of that said they were done with the game forever that came back before too very long?

I hear a lot of peoples saying this and then I found them playing, even for 1 game or so, under a different nick or whatever community they hang out at.

There is 1 guy that I know since he helped me with modding on my sniper rifle, and he told me that he is moving to USA (from Mexico) and he said "no more ut99"... from previous experience, he said that before and he played UT99 after his words. I am sure he will be back again, regardless of what he said. He just need to find some time to play again or so lol.

It's always endless of what peoples can say, but the game addiction will beat your quitting words. ;)

Heh, I only left until I matured... and here I am now.

I just can't stop working with my beloved horrible Unreal Engine 1.5.

What do you mean with "trailer"??
FF is no modification anymore ...it will become a standalone game.

Off the top of your heads, how many people can you think of that said they were done with the game forever that came back before too very long?
This kind of discussion can get inflammatory and honestly it's much more nuanced than to say someone is 'back' or not. Take me for instance. I answer the occasional question but I can't tell you the last time I played UT. I think I logged into UM's MH server long enough to chat up Hitty but that's all. I feel a certain obligation to share the things I learned if someone wants to take the time to ask a question, but does that put me in the 'back!' category? I'd think that would be someone who plays or runs a server or makes things.

Claudio will never be back, and that's best for him. He was always bigger than what UT could offer. A few years from now you'll read about him running some dot com and enjoying life. He deserves it too. You'd not ever know it but he didn't have the best of opportunities. Everything he is comes from his own hard work and determination. Guys like that usually go on to excel and I fully expect he will do that too.

I'd be careful tossing around any more players. It's easy for this to feel a bit like a "name-and-shame" thing.
So long, and thanks for all the fish

All of Clan [DANISH] except for me, but don't Count me as active because you wont see me on a server I think? Then most of Clan [AMLP] appears to be gone? Then all my friend mappers from back when I was most active at that. The Danish Viking Clan members. The old core of ........... man the list goes on and on and on and on.....

Why do you make this topic? If I count them all I'm sure I will go way past 100 persons I could name?

You see Grins ...this thread has no real purpose ...it just makes people angry or sad.
We all know that UT is dieing, every day a little bit. We are the hard core fans ... but even in our ranks are people leaving and going to other games. That's natural.

I will close this thread tomorrow.

Spur of the moment, random funny thought. Guess just funny in my own head.

My bad.

Question is - who will be the last one standing?
