I don't think I can stress how excited I was for that day. I was so excited that I still remember the date the game was released (hence this topic).

Discovering ESF is either the worst thing to happen to me or the best. I'm still not sure.

I wonder what Aurum will have to say about this travesty!


That's a mighty long time ago...... I missed 1.2.3 but I wont miss Final! Off and on for a couple years I searched for DBZ mods and the only one I found was bid for power, just found this one in December of 2011 8( Did I mention that this was a mighty long time ago?

Damn, I remember the release party for 1.2... doesn't even feel like it was that long ago. I was begging to be voiced in irc lolol.

I also remember the Half-Life Radio interview where the release date for 1.2 was announced, that was pretty cool. fun fact: i was one of the little kids on that show~

Has it been that long, already?

I remember "training" in 1.1, and spending countless hours practicing the second 1.2 came out. Those were good days.

I wasn't part of the release parties or the exact release days, but I enjoyed the game back then. For me, however, it was just another HL1 mod I played lan with a few friends alongside NS/TS, Sven, Wizards and whatnot. Started playing again once a month or so in 06-08. 2009 I discovered the community for real :cool:

Me and Fire Phoenix used to have training sessions in 1.1 where we'd practice hitting someone, doing the 50 teleports to get in front of the guy, or teleport all the way up, and hit him again. Once you put the work into it, and it actually worked, it was ******* amazing. When 1.2 came out, it felt so sluggish that the second hit was guaranteed, so whatever skill I gained over time was just from playing the game. I didn't spent a lot of time practicing. I do miss the old community, though. By 08 or so, the game was pretty much dead to me, and the forum wasn't doing so hot, either.

Yeah, I stayed in the game but it was never the same after 1.1. I definitely remember that first time I managed to purposefully do a double hit. That shit was ******* magical.

In one month, it'll be 10 years since I signed up on this forum. And I'd been playing the game for at least one year before that point.

I'm expecting a surprise party from you guys. With presents.

That shi* was damn near impossible. Only ever did it maybe just a few times... On accident too.

I remember when the 1.1 linux client was released about a week or two before the windows version, so the servers would get up and running and be ready for 1.1s release.


Then someone found out that the client worked with windows so 1.1s release got messed up. I remember myself and a few others playing on a 1.1 server, the team was all pissed and just like "**** it" and joined the server. Was really awesome when a few pubbies and I were all playing (as Trunks, dat sword yo) then PcJoe, Mastasurf, Valkyrie_Alpha, and a bunch of testers rushed into our server. It was really awesome.
