A lot of people got tired of the same ol' same ol'. People frequently take long vacations from the game or even quit entirely until the next release.

Most of them are gone because they have a family to raise...

Yeah...no. Most of us have lives now (College, friends, work, girlfriend/boyfriend) and esf is boring as hell (especially since North America has about 2 servers; 1 for evm and a random server with 32 bots). I mean, I really want to enjoy esf. It's just hard to now =/.

I think I'm pregnant so thats not helping me much either.

Relax Zeo. My new computer is only 4 years late, and I shall save the ESF clan-community with its arrival! I'll... host... 40 servers. Yes.

But seriously, I predict good things once I get it operational. Maybe it's too late for the clan scene in this mod until the release of 1.3. Waiting isn't so bad, and I know I can get people interested in other games to pass the time.

Personally, I'm probably going to play this game right away when I can.



The "Vets" these days are, as I gather, mostly the stragglers from the clan community of yester-year. They're still newbies in their own eyes when compared to long term players that they knew and played against. It happens with many mods- sometimes, the old players end up leaving earlier than expected/wanted, leaving things in a state of panic.

Don't get me wrong- they're mostly great players and a load of fun to play against, with, or even just e-chill around. If you want to see the best North America has to offer, check out pretty much anyone from ~kai~ or Zen, but specificly Gon, DarK, Loki, and Saru.

That's not to say there aren't any good players out of these clans, but in terms of "vet" status the only other people I think qualify are a few mods, and I don't even have any idea how long they've been around being *comparitively* new myself (A little over one year into the community, playing for around 6 months now.)

Once I get my computer operational and am able to play the game again, keep an eye out. I offer help to anyone who asks for it beyond the basics, and I'm usually up for a match. If you want to see the vets, check out the Zen and Kai clan servers when (if?) they go back up.

Heh. Same here dude. But still I beat out the day.


All in all, most of us are gone. I'm rarely around much anymore, though I will be more often once 1.3 is released. Chances are good that they'll need even ME at that point.

I started browsing the forums as a guest in like may 02 then decided to make an account in November. I just realized though that Ive been around for 3 yrs and 3 months lol.

Still play from time to time also, but now my life is more eventful than it was in High School, so I dont play nearly as often as I used to.

I have been browsing the forums since, begin of 2002 if I am right. But only registered later because something wouldn't work with my ESF. After that I stayed around, but I don't play ESF anymore, 1.2 bored the crap about of me, I (as most other people) am waiting for 1.3. When 1.3 is released I probably will start playing again.

I'm still around, though I don't really play the game with the same amount of seriousness in mind that I did when I was into 2.0a, heh.

Still, I hang around to help out in any way I can, particularly in helping to keep this community going =]

However, as was previously mentioned, I don't quite have the same amount of time as I did when I was an ESF newbie at the age of 14 (for reference, I turned 19 last month), so I tend to relegate myself to helping run the forums. University tends to demand most of my time =P

I used to play esf when I was in gr. 5, but I only registered last year and started posting in october, that's why my post count is so low, bt anyways, I think 80% of the vets are gone, they were awesome, but sadly most have left, those few who are still here are either brought down(play less) or just don't like playing that much anymore, most of the guys here's glory days of esf are over, but I'm training now alot, I try as much as possible, but my pc is stuffed up atm, my dad's pc this, as soon as my pc gets fixed then i'll be up and running with my 600 ping, lol.

ah.. god. Now you're making me nostalgic for the good old days. Still in highschool...heh.

I'm surprised I look back at those hated times with a smile.

/me looks at my join date

This would include me right? During the good 'ol days of freiza disk being pure pwnage? Yeah, except that most of the models weren't done, so it looked like a bunch of flying Gordons XD

My life is as busy as it's ever been, and that can be inferred by the lowness of my post count. (It would be higher, but we switched forums once and post count was reset, long long long ago) I used to play alot, but I can't get into it anymore like I used to, maybe because I am not into DBZ anymore. I loved dbz when I was in 5th grade, but now I am in the Air Force, it is kinda.... well.... a stupid cartoon.

Plus, the community had a different feel to it. It used to be a small-community feeling, where people all knew eachother and nothing anyone said was considered offensive or spam, and no one was ever banned and threads were rarely locked. The golden age!

Dangit, now I am feeling the nostalgic emotion. >.<
