S!

I started playing sometime in 2009 and went by the name "redmenace".

I primarily played allied(but now I like to mix it up each campaign)and started off in BTZ along with my work colleague(eddie05) who introduced me to the game and for that I will be forever grateful to him.

I did take a break from the game for around 12 months but now I am back and don't intend leaving again any time in the near future.

Last night was the last time I logged in and I will be back in game again tonight, beers are at the ready :).

P.S Can I give a S! to a friend and fallen comrade who passed away a couple of months ago (biglezh), He will be sorely missed.

S! Lez

What year did you start playing? - April 2002 if I remember correctly

When was the last time you played? - Today!

What squad were you in? - Very first squad was TOG (The Old Guard), then I believe I was a member of the 91st before joining the ranks of the DDz (The Dirty Dozenz), since then I formed the Australian and New Zealand Axis squad which grew really fast and did some good things in the first 6 months but unfortunately members left the game or moved on and now its just me :)

What side did you primarily play on? - I've always been mainly Axis, and used to shoot over the the Allies during intermissions and what not, or load up my Allied account and play that during campaigns which was rare.

Love the game, and the people that make it what it is, so many memories that it's hard to think of one that stands out... but probably the countless times that Katonka threw me off the back of an opel to my death :P

Hello gents Hyo here. Been a while since I've played due to health reasons. I will have to start back in slow as I suffered some issues that may require me to play very sparsely at first. I originally started as free guinea pig 6 months before we actually had to start paying then in June of 2001 it became official. Worked my way up to Brigadier General in 4 years Luftwaffe flying the Pig (BF-110) solely. Then ranks readjusted to where I think I was a Colonel or Lt. Colone. And flew for 13 years straight. Unfortunately due to a minor stroke that messed up my vision and a very bad fall down stairs I was wheelchair bound for a year and multiple surgeries later was semi put back together. Body but not mind.  Lol....well ill be in and out for a while.  Any way I have always tried to support this game, ( it's awesome with no other truly like it), even as a hero builder, on disability now limits what I can. Ill do my best to help. I'll check out the rides (air) and see what you all have written about them and maybe pop in from time to time to try one. I don't have Internet ($) so it will be when I can. Steal it or get the Gov to give me access or something.  Salute. Looking forward to seeing you guys in game. 

Salute Hyo.

Year 1 player here.  Got in early to ensure getting my old Airwarrior handle, but didn't start playing until October because I had to bring my rig up to spec.

Been a lonewolf until both my brothers got accounts, now we're our own squad (Volkssturm Geheimwaffe 13) with a couple of college buddies.

I think there might be a blip where I logged in as a beddy once for 10 seconds, but I've never played allied, not even intermission.

 

S!

Well considering that I started also in 2001 I'll consider myself a Vet too.

My originalhandle was Vonkraut but CRS censored it so for awhile I was ID1156 or something like that till they gave me (which I requested ) my  handle dre21

Squads . 502 Schwere Panzerabteilung  (german speaking squad ) , 3rd Panzer, Sturmgrenadier, 1st Fallschirmjäger with Xoom, Afrika Korps ,GAK and now 1st Jäger. There might be one or two I'm missing.

Last time played . Yesterday

Side . 90% Axis  with a here and there a dabble on the Allied side.

S! 

I started back in March of 2002 and have been away for probably 5 years. I haven't been in game yet, but I'm really looking forward to that.

I mostly played Axis, but did play French about a year to prove a point (don't remember what that point was anymore).

I made a lot of good friends here, and am really looking forward to seeing everyone again in-game, and here in the forums.

It looks like a lot has changed in Rat land, I'd love a history lesson.

Awesome seeing these posts.......salute to hyosylvr (I still watch your vids) and to kidd27 and others who shared personal stuff about themselves and their lives. I'll do the same:

i first joined in spring 2002 as "yuba" and joined SG. Wow what a squad! Suppo, I remember you from that, also dre21. OJ was one of the finest tactical commanders this game ever saw. The 501st split off from SG, and I rolled with them for awhile, then decided to switch to allied, and changed game name to sideout.

joined BTZ somewhere along the line, then around 2010, since I mostly fly, created my own squad FFG, and started recruiting pilots and joined AHC in French Air Force. I was 2nd in command of FAF when Jimato was commander. FFG had some awesome pilots, Cnycttr, Jester, sirsnipy, Don Juan, li85, and creeden just to name a few. Played steadily until early 2012 then between poor computer and real life, I had to bail out. I've been back for six months or so with two new computers lol. I'm not in a squad because being newly back I like to go in between, tho with such a smaller player base, I'm doing it a campaign at a time.

personally, I'm an old fart. I'm 63 years old, and I work for the United States Navy based JAx Naval Air station, in Florida. Btw it was my wife who encouraged me to get back into the game, she said she knew how much I loved it and it made me happy. 

Im personally excited about the new rats and what they are doing. I wasn't disgruntled as a prior player although I did think the old team was arrogant and could care less what the player base thought. Xoom has brought transparency to this game which is the only game I have ever played, or am interested in playing.

hope to see some old players comeback........hmmm imagining cnycttr and Sirsnipy in a captured db7 flying Axis makes me smile
