View Full Version : Any Australians out there?

07-18-2003, 07:30 AM
Hi my name is Kimba & I was wondering if there are any Australians out there. I have been playing SWGB for years & have only just discovered this site!

I play weekly with a group & we are always looking for new players to join us - so if anyone is interested please feel free to check out


which is where the group is based or send me a private message if you would like some more info.



07-18-2003, 02:09 PM
CorranSec, Admiral Vostok and Darth Windu. Our threee aussies:D !

07-19-2003, 07:32 AM
Yep, that's us. Hi. Where in Aus are you?

I am personally in Melbourne (way outer eastern) but other in the group who play SWGB CC group (called Legions of the Eagles) are also from Canberra & Sydney, as well as some others in Melb. Mind you the group that we all play under/in (The Wedge Tailed Eagles) has over 70 members from just about everywhere.

have a look at our web site - I think you may be pleasantly suprised....


07-19-2003, 12:35 PM
got a link?

07-19-2003, 02:45 PM
Im from Perth...

07-19-2003, 02:53 PM
I seen your site, pretty good. Say a big hello to Icarus from skythe, haven't seen him in a while, and also if spartan is who i think it is then hello to him too :)

07-19-2003, 10:34 PM
pbguy1211 - the link is www.wte-anga.com

AU_Skythe - I shall certainly send a hello to "Icarus the Meek" (thats our pet name for him!) for you - would be my pleasure. And Spartan too....

I was kinda hoping you guys might join our group - but if you know Icarus, and are as good as he is well then I am not so sure.... rarely win a game with him around! (he actually runs the Unit) - so maybe not teehee

/me curses under breath

.... but then again, it would be nice to see someone give him a serious run for his money (figuratively of course cos the group is free naturally!)



07-20-2003, 05:14 PM
Hey you could tell them to come here and posts some stuff...we're kinda desperate for new members...

07-20-2003, 09:35 PM
Yes, we are a tad lacking in people. There's... oh... about five major posters here, with about three more people who participate often, but are a bit newer, I think.

07-21-2003, 01:44 AM
I have been playing SWGB for years
Just splitting hairs, but SWGB has been out for less than 2 years:D

Yeah, welcome aboard! Send all the people you want. If I lived in Australia (and still played SWGB regularly;) ) I'd probably join you guys...

07-21-2003, 02:38 AM
lukeiamyourdad - Hey I'm new & i'm posting stuff arent I!

Sithmaster_821 - Less than 2 years you say - truely? well that just goes to show doesnt it.... time really does fly - I would swear it was longer than that but if you say so well youre the expert! & I know that I am a bit vague these days as my memory is not as it was after having kids! (yes i am female - I am definately not a bloke- and there are pictures of me on the web site if you look hard enough to prove it too!)

/me waves


07-21-2003, 03:38 AM
Well, the copyright on my GB box is 2001, though i only got gb after CC came out. So i dont know when in 2001 it came out. so it COULD be 2 years... or it could not...

Admiral Vostok
07-21-2003, 04:49 AM
Yep I'm 'Strailian. If I still regularly played SWGB at regular intervals I might consider joining you, but right now I spend more time posting on this forum than playing the game.

07-21-2003, 07:59 AM
Well then, Kimba, you can be our token female Australian. Unless there's something Vostok or Windu haven't been telling us....

Darth Windu
07-23-2003, 05:55 AM
Hi, and welcome to the boards. I'm an aussie too, as i think luke pointed out. I actually live in Perth but dont play GB online, and never have, although i may reconsider.

Otherwise, ive just been too busy cutting up stormies since i recently got 'Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast'

07-23-2003, 07:06 PM
I guess you're waiting for Jedi Academy to come out now eh Windu?:D

The only problem with JK:JO is the comps AI...

Darth Windu
07-26-2003, 01:16 PM
Well the AI isnt that bad...though quite a bit of the time they should see you and dont. The only thing that annoys me is the way stormies move, its just so unnatural.

Having said that i like the game a lot, especially the 'g_saberrealisticcombat 1' cheat - its fantastic!

Really looking forward to Jedi Academy though, especially being able to create a unique character with a unqiue sabre.

07-26-2003, 04:18 PM
Actually the major blame for this game is the comp's AI...I've seen so many stormies ,officers running off a ledge...it's fun to hear them scream though :D

It's a shame that in Academy you can only have four races of Jedi(Kel Dor, Twilek, Rodian and Human)...it would have been fun to create your own green imp

07-27-2003, 11:53 PM
I wonder why....I mean we're so involving....

07-28-2003, 06:43 AM
Any of you perthies live near rockingham by any chance?

07-28-2003, 08:33 AM
Yes, we are quite involving...
what were we talking about again?

When you consider that mine was the last post that even mentioned Kimba, and that from there we've swiftly moved to discussion of JO, whether we play GB online, locations of Perthies and how we're so involving, I daresay she might have been scared off. By you. Bad Sith. No corruptable Jedi for you today.

07-28-2003, 10:39 AM

No, you havent lost me... I am still here & quite happy to be the token chick!

Actually the problem was that i stopped getting those notices telling me that some one had replied. So being a tad distracted by ACTUALLY PLAYING the game... just took me a while to get back - so here I am :D

Admiral VostoK - has it actually occured to you that if you spent a little time playing (like with us on a friday night) that you might have more stuff to post about? (Yes that was an invitation...)

Darth Windu - Take my word for it - once you have experienced playing on line you will never go back to playing the computer. Imagine the best game you ever had & then multiply it by at least 10 - THATS how much fun we have on fridays (yes thats an invite too...)

and the same goes for you too Lord Siraious - absolutely - give it a try & you wont go back... (3 invitres in one night! /me feels satisfied!)

So here is a story for you....

we played last friday - it was 4 vs icarus (think we'd win right HUH!) - anyway the plan was we had 2 going trade fed to pound him early - I was going Naboo air support & MAddy ( a 10 yo - whose game has got SO good - I am so proud of her tech time etc ) was going to keep us supplied with resources. So, one trade fed guy gets done - the other guys comms go down & I am left to face the might Ic with a bunch of bombers on my own! Well Maddy was so great with resources that I could make heaps but Bloody Icarus surrounded me with anti air & blew me away! Sigh, couldnt even get out of my base! We were on a time limit you see so it was too late for me change tactics... so he won... sigh... he played an amazing game - hats off to him.

so comment away & dont forget to smile because I'm back:p

As if I would forget about you guys!:atat:

hope I get a reminder reply thingie this time....


07-28-2003, 12:20 PM
It's nice to have you back Kimba...we missed ya!

Anyway, go to the user cp (it's just over the Galactic Battles banner). Check your options and see if the replies option box is checked. If it is you should normally receive a reply when someone posts.

By the way what time on friday nights are you guys playing? I'll see if it's possible for me to tag along from over here. If I can Sith will be able too...but we'll get our asses kicked...seriously...

07-29-2003, 07:57 AM
Ah, good to know that our insane topic-switching hasn't driven you away, Kimba.

I don't get an invite? :eek: Oh my. Corran has been left out. He shall now proceed to go and sulk in the corner.
*sulks in the corner*

Right, glad that's over with.

I will most definitely get my ass kicked too. I actually had a go of GB on the weekend for the first time in about three-quarters of a year, and although I made Tech 2 in a great time, I was summarily slaughtered by some comps who actually did something before advancing. Hurrah.

Perhaps we could form an alliance of Really Useless People who Haven't Played the Game in Months! Together, the... four?... of us might just manage to beat a single decent player. Hurrah!

07-29-2003, 09:03 AM
CorrenSec - come out of the corner - you simply have to come.... (you are my favorite - dont tell the others!)

OK so to get you guys onto the team you need to do this....

go to the Wedge Tailed Eagles site (www.wte-anga.com) & create a login name by joining & select "Legions of the Eagle" as the Unit you wish to join.

Usually takes 24hrs or so....

Then I can send you the programme you need to install which is where we all get together.

So on Friday night at 8.30 (EST) you can come into the room where we all are & we organise our game & IP numbers from the host to go & play....

So what is your idea of a great tech 2 time?
While you are on the web site you can have a look at this
Gaming Units > Legions > SWGB statistics table.... shows what our best times are etc.

Feel free to poke around the other legions submenus to see what we're doing.

Cant wait to have you guys on the team


07-29-2003, 10:35 AM
Oh... really?
*Corran comes out of the corner looking hopeful*

*sigh* Honestly, people, look at us... a single female comes in and we're all acting like idiots.
... acting more like idiots that usual.
.... okay, so we're completely normal (on our scale at least). But still! I know what I meant!

Righto, I signed up, I think. I've been needing something to do.
Vostok, Windu, quickly, join me! I don't want to be to only completely useless person! :p

07-29-2003, 11:05 AM

(she decides that yes he deffinately is her favorite!)

You have made my day CorranSec - you really have...

*tries to stop smiling cos cheeks are starting to hurt*

1 down 3 to go....

Keep your eyes on your email box for the email addy confirmation thingie you need to click on ( I am so technical huh - wowing you with my knowledge). Then you should get a welcome letter & the rest as they say is history....

what name did you join under?
...just so I know its you, of course.

hey isnt Sirius from Perth? or didnt you include him cos he isnt an idiot *sounds hopeful lol* ewr um normal I mean.

Please ignore CorranSec, Lord Siraious, as you are most deffinatly included here....



07-29-2003, 04:32 PM
Is it me or do I feel something here;) ?

By the do you guys play on LAN or the zone?

07-29-2003, 09:39 PM
She said exchange IP so I'm thinking that it will be neither a LAN or on the Zone, but via IP.

Yeah, I definitely haven't played online in a while. I've kinda been playing AoM for 9 months so I haven't had the chance. Usually playing AoM on Fridays, but maybe I'll tke a break. And if and when I come, you-know-who-ex-forumer will probably tag along.

07-29-2003, 10:01 PM
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyway Sith forget it. They're 14 hours ahead of us so if they play at 9:00 pm over there we'd have to get up early...(9:00 pm over there 7:00 am over here) I don't know if you're on vacay but I am and I don't think I can get up that early...

07-30-2003, 12:14 PM
I think the group use to play on the zone but hasnt done so for quite sometime - so yes its a LAN connection.

And the time zone factor is exactly why the group doesnt accept overseas members - sorry guys - hence the title of my original post.....

CorrenSec waiting on your confirmation... should have a WTE email there somewhere for you to click on...

and FYI the others havent joined up so youre on your own so far so you better get on their cases. How else are we going to form that "Alliance of Really Useless People who Haven't Played the Game in Months" teehee....

07-30-2003, 12:36 PM
Just to say...

Siraious comes here every once in awhile so you won't hear from him for awhile. Same thing for Skythe.

As for Windu he's so paranoid that he'll never play online(newb bashers, a-holes etc.)

While for Vostok...well...he should be back here and accepting your invitation in awhile...Corran you're on your own.

07-31-2003, 07:30 AM
Hm. I didn't know Skythe was from Australia... although the AU might have clued in everybody else, I'm far too smart to notice the obvious. And I also didn't know Sirius... Siraus... Siraous?... existed.

Simwiz? I haven't heard mention of him in ages. Clearly it's for a good reason.

Ah, yes. Pity Windu wouldn't join. I might enjoy seeing what he's actually like on the battlefield, as such.

I don't seem to have a confirmation email, Kimba. It might have gotten filtered into junk mail but I doubt it. Odd.
Three guesses what name I signed up with, and the first two don't count. That's right: it's CorranSec.

Arr. Vostok, come quick and join. We must form my Alliance! Hurrah!

Darth Windu
07-31-2003, 11:13 AM
Ok, im back. Just been too busy with study and whatnot i havent had a chance to use the net for about a week.

I may join up, ill give it some though. BTW corran, dont worry, you be able to kick my butt pretty easily.

07-31-2003, 12:47 PM
CorranSec I sent you a personal email via the addy you used in your application for WTE - If you havent got it i might cancel your application & get you to re do it (bummer & boring sorry i know) as it seems to be wrong & not working....

let me know....

Hoping you will join us soon Windu

/me bows & winks

Admiral Vostok
08-01-2003, 01:50 AM
Okay, peer pressure has encouraged me to join up. However, as it is Friday today and you said it takes 24 hours, Kimba, I'm not sure I'll be ready by tonight.

Next week though, I'll be there to join Corran in the Alliance of Really Useless People who Haven't Played the Game in Months. I shall go and sign up now in preparation.

EDIT: Kimba, do my Star Wars Trivia in my sig! So far about 100 people have done it and no-one's got a perfect score. And while I'm on this topic, when are you going to do it, Corran?

08-01-2003, 01:55 AM
Fantastic Admiral Vostok - shall look forward to it immensly. :D

Seems to be a slight problem with CorranSecs application as he hasnt got his confirmation notification so he may not have been ready for tonight either unfortunately. :confused:

Still waiting to hear from him......:evanpiel:

08-01-2003, 01:59 AM
:atat: :atat: :atat: :atat: :atat:

The A.R.U.P.W.H.P.T.G.I.M.

....its got a nice ring to it really huh....

:D :D :D :D :D

Lord Siraious
08-01-2003, 02:52 AM
Good Quiz, How did I do? I really should go and visit that site of yours Kimba, maybe I will later today.

08-01-2003, 07:40 AM
I do apologise for my absence. I have a tendency to only visit these forums once a day, due to actually having a life and all that. :p

Arr. I don't appear to have your email, Kimba. Guess you'll have to cancel my application, and I'll do it again ASAP.

Hurrah, Vostok! Long live the ARUPWHPTGIM!
Oh. Um. Quiz. *cough* I'll get around to it someday... the same day I carefully watch all of the SW movies in one sitting. ;)

08-01-2003, 11:46 AM
A life - you have a life.....:mad:

Where can you get them cos i really need one....:D

Anyway... CorranSec your application has been cancelled so feel free to do it again any time from NOW!!...

Hope it works second time round....

So whats theis Quiz everyone is refering too? I like a good quiz!

08-01-2003, 02:27 PM
Click on the ''Star Wars Trivia'' words of Vostok's sig.

You should try it out it's freaking hard.

08-02-2003, 12:30 AM
You can tell who plays this game because it is Star Wars, and who plays because it is a good RTS (I got an 8 out of 25:( )

I got me one of them life things to. They're tons of fun. I highly recommend them...

08-02-2003, 12:34 AM
life? What is life? I have spent so much time indoor...god...


*Hides in the closet to cry

08-02-2003, 03:31 AM
Lives... mmm. They're quite good. Try the deluxe ones in marinade. But don't try the chilli sauce. ;)

Okay, I got the email refusing the app, Kimba. Hmm, you seem to be giving me a slight hint that I should sign up NOW, perhaps? :p
Righto, off I go...

08-02-2003, 08:16 AM
Yeah Vostok - Siraious & I are waiting for our Quiz results!!!
c'mon how'd we do?????:D

CorrenSec - teehee - yep your application has come through so all things being AOK to go, should be fine (fingers crossed).

It was a lousy turn out last night - just Outsider & I vs Icarus. Even let Icarus play unhandycapped as we thought we had huh! HUH!!! Ic took me all out before t3 (I had no anti air - found one worker/built spaceport/ went t3/built troopcentre/not enough minerals to make antiair troops!! couldnt build turret as my only worker was boxed in behind spaceport - DOH) & we had lost the game in under 30mins....

so we did it again....this time Ic took a handicap but alas - as Outsider said it was the Quick & the dead. Ic was too damned quick & he & I were dead....

OH well, there is always next week...

So Siraious - did you have a look at www.wte-anga.com?
thoughts .... comments???

Lord Siraious
08-02-2003, 10:36 AM
Very interesting Kimba. I'll have a think about joinning but as I currently am I do not know if I'll have the time. :yoda:

08-03-2003, 01:48 AM
This Icarus fellow seems pretty scary. When's the last time someone beat him?

And should I be expecting a confirmation email? If so, when do you think it will arrive?

08-03-2003, 03:31 AM
CoranSec - I snuck into the data base (ssshhhh dont tell anyone) & approved you myself as the boses seem to be busy atm.... so by the time you read this you should have it....

...and as for Icarus, well he is so good that he has had to devise a handicap system that he places himself into to give the rest of us a chance at a win. Unhandicapped I have never known him to be beated ever. Occasionally if there are enough of us or his handicap is big enough we get a victory.... Scary isnt quite the word for it - I think awe inspiring is more apt. One doesnt really understand the feeling of humility untill you have been beaten by him unhandicapped....

Lord Siraious - c'mon we want you - couldnt you spare a few hours on a Friday night kinda regularly? surely.... thats not a huge ask is it... not for the HUGE payoffs you will get.... (hopes he reconsiders)

08-03-2003, 03:33 AM
P.S. Admiral Vostok - I didnt see an application for you while I was in there...


08-03-2003, 07:02 AM
Thankyou for bending the rules on my behalf, Kimba. ;)
I've got the confirmation email and am right now completing the whole 'recruitment' thing. Speaking of which, looking around the site, everything seems to be rather rigid and official... are you all really like that?

08-03-2003, 11:42 AM
That's a nice site.

hmmm... you know, I think we non-aussies should get off our butts and start our own lil "social club," and get togther weekly and play. I'd join in on that... even tho I suck... :D

08-03-2003, 03:49 PM
Hey Phreak long time no see here.

I guess we should try...we all suck now Phreak so you don't have to worry about getting your ass kicked by any of us. Except maybe pbguy.

Since Kimba is here I've gotten nostalgic and restarted playing Gb(corran did it as well I believe). Being beaten by comps on moderate is so insulting...

By the way, I'm sure that back in our golden days we could beat Icarus;)

Admiral Vostok
08-03-2003, 09:31 PM
Yes I haven't been on all weekend because I too have one of those "life" thingies... though admittedly not much of one. I have now submitted my application, though I am concerned I won't be available eery Friday... that meddling life again. But I shall do my best.

Kimba and Siraious, your trivia scores are in my sig. If you want more detailed scores, PM me. However I can not give out correct answers due to the fact that you could just go and do it again under a different name...

08-04-2003, 06:26 PM
Does Icarus play on the zone? If so what's his zone name? I bet someone like Skythe or 11th Fool could beat him.

08-05-2003, 06:59 AM
Sorry all for my absence again - no notice again.... & my box is deffinately ticked. sometimes I get them sometimes I dont.. oh well, at least you know I'm here cos i remembered, not because I was reminded.

So to your questions...

CorranSec - The WTE is based on a military structure which is why it appears ridgid. Ranks & respect are given to those mainly as an acknowledgement for the time they spend helping run the association as a volunteer. We do have fun, or else there is no point to being there... teehee... our chats before the game where we kind of socialise can get very silly at times... Oh the ranks etc also help as we give out medals to players for long service, above average attendance, spectacular victories, beating records, all sorts of things depending upon the Unit itself.

StarWarsPhreak - so glad you like it - allot of time has gone into its creation & on going maintainance...

lukeiamyourdad - GOLDEN DAYS.... makes you sound ancient! lol - I am hoping those from here may give him a run for his money with a bit of practice....

Admiral Vostok - great - hope confirmation comes through soon. Not everyone comes EVERY Friday - so thats fine, dont worry about it. They will be glad for another playmate even if irregular... actually just checked - your confirmation email has been sent so you should have it by now. If not let me know & i will cancell so you can re do like CorranSec.

9/24 gees... thought I did better than that - there were so few I felt like I had to guess... sigh... well done Lord Siraious. *tries to take some comfort from the fact that it isnt actually the LOWEST score, even if its uncomfortably close to it teeheee*

saberhagen - nope Icarus doesnt play on the Zone anymore - I believe thats how he know Skythe (who he describes as "good") already. He played under the name Icarus, but these days he has a family so i think he only plays with us on Fridays.

08-06-2003, 02:06 AM
Admiral Vostok - my appologies - your email address disapeared from the data base with your application & i didnt get to it in time - so hence i have to write here....

I know your application was rejected BUT WE STILL WANT YOU!!!!


2 things....

a. The data base cant accept names with spaces in them - so you would have to apply using Admiral_Vostok

b. We cant have ranks in user names because, as I was explaining to CorranSec, everyone in the association is given "ranks" - you would start off as Private Admiral_Vostok which is just plain silly - teehee:D

....so how about just "Vostok" & you work your way up?

Hope to see your appliction again soon...


08-06-2003, 07:37 AM
Okay then. Good to know that it's still fun. And all the military stuff can be fun too- it would be nice to get a reward after playing a bloody difficult game. :rolleyes:

Ah, yes, those golden days when we all actually played the game. Then we came here, and stopped playing it. Kinda defeats the purpose of this being a GB forum, doesn't it...

Rejoin quickly, Vostok! We must battle to victory! Hurrah!

Admiral Vostok
08-07-2003, 01:05 AM
Okay, I've resubmitted my application, but unfortunately it looks like I won't be playing again this week. You see, the Brisbane International Film Festival is on at the moment, so being the good film student that I am I am taking in a few of the films. Maybe next week... then again my friends have sort of informally decided Friday is movie night, so I'll keep you posted...

08-07-2003, 06:36 AM
Great Vostok good news indeed.

You should get your confirmation email VERY soon.

And I am quite sure that a smart bloke like yourself can convince your friends that Saturday night is a far superior night to see films on.... especially if you say you cant come... then they would have to change it huh....

08-07-2003, 08:05 AM
It appears I, too, cannot come. Much as I would like to- especially with it being a Convergence match- I'm in Surfers on Friday. :mad: :rolleyes: Hopefully I'll be able to make it next Friday.

Admiral Vostok
08-07-2003, 10:16 PM
Unfortunately Saturday night is already unofficially "going out and drinking" night.

Corran, you need to do my trivia. You're the only forumite who hasn't. Help me CorranSec, you're my only hope.

While on the trivia subject, I'm going to add more questions so when I do everyone can have a second attempt.

08-12-2003, 09:38 AM
Well you guys have all been so quiet that you have made ME feel forgotten about - c'mon guys spark up!!


Whats happened to you Vostock? - your confirmation was sent but you havent replied...

Windu, Siraious where are you?


arent you going to come & play too?????


CorranSec - still on for Friday night? hope so, last week was a real blast....

Icarus (handicapped) was teamed up with Nighthawk vs 4 of us... it took 3 hrs to wipe them out & then it was still close. At one point 3 of us attacked nighthawk together so Icarus sent troops over to help him, then Ic attacked & wipped out my base (I let him tactically as a distraction you see... very smart move on my part - won us the game teehee!!) meanwhile our 4th guy attacked icarus who was spread very thin.... it was a close game & a real nail bitter, but we got im in the end..

HOORAY for us!!

yes, we gloated alot then too...

SKYTHE - you there... can i talk you into playing with us? or have you got your own group as Icarus thought you might?


write soon - remember I dont have a life & I get lonely...

:D :D

08-12-2003, 10:34 AM
Oh, hi, Lynk. Funny seeing you in our deserted corner of the LF galaxy.
GB... well, imagine a chicken, then imagine a monkey, then superimpose one imagine on top of the other. That's what the game looks like. :)

Hope that didn't hurt. Have a medipack.

Hmm, I seem to have missed the confirmation email. That's bad, isn't it? I must have missed it upon scanning through my junk mail...

Oh and can we not mention any more monkeys again. I've had too many bad experiences with monkeys on this forum...

Hi Vostok - I have cancelled your application so you can reapply - 3rd time lucky:D
hope it works & hope to see you on Friday if it does

Okay, I've signed up again, and so far my Friday night is open.

I should warn you that if I get a better offer concerning how I spend my Friday evening, I may take it over sitting at home on the computer...

But assuming I don't, what is the procedure to play? Do we meet somewhere online or what?

08-14-2003, 06:33 AM
I think we all meet in an IRC chat room at a prearranged time and then proceed to organise games.

Okay, well I just got my confirmation through, so all systems are go.

Hopefully Kimba will tell me what IRC thing to go to. I guess I better download MIRC...

08-14-2003, 07:11 AM
All the channels are on the site, I think. If you can't find them there then I can tell you... I'm just too lazy to go and look at the email that told me about them right now.

:D :D

Mmmmmm... well unfortunately Fridays are one of the nights i go out clubing and what have you. So its a bad night for me how ever I may be able to drop in every now and then, we will see. I just dont have the time to join and be active.

Great Vostok glad to hear it & nice to see your name in the roster

- yep we meet on IRC at 8.30pm
- on the web site everything you need to know is under WTE help center > software set up > IRC
- the room we meet in is


now to both of you - sometimes we use teamspeak2 as a voice comm too in game... if you have the time & inclination to set it up great - if not - dont worry do it another day... info is in same place as IRC on web site.

Well tonight is a big night for Legions - we start with an awards ceremony (fingers crossed) where they will hand out medals & commendations (always LOVE a good medal!) and then we play the last of our convergence matches before resuming normal play...

This just means tonights battle has a particular significance in the WTE story of convergence we write - for a briefing read Convergence > current battle > current briefing. (well you could except it hasnt been posted yet - last nights one for Americas Army is still up but it should be up before the game - so give yourself 5 mins to read it before we start.)

I see Vostock you have not been assigned a faction in convergence yet (you are listed as neutral) so that means you are a mercinary who may choose which side to play on - lucky you!) The rest of us play faction sides & yes CorranSec we will most likely use voice comms tonight....

looking forward to it

see you both in IRC - if you have any problesm grab my email addy off the web site & give us a yell

Kimba - well you see i've been sruck down with one of these things called a 'life' - im still not sure what it is, but the docs tell me its not good. On the serious side - join the serious side, i was told, it'll be fun i was told, bloody onions, ill never listen to one ever again... - i might join this week sometime, of course conversely, i might not.

Anyhow the point of this post is...something, im not too sure but it might be there. Cheers.

That would be great if you did Windu - CorranSec & Vostok seemed to have a good time on Fri night & settled in quite naturally bantering with the regulars ... but thern they havent posted here since so maybe they have disappeared into the void....

Vostok was lucky enough to be paired with icarus, so the lucky b*gg*r scored a win for the night... enough said...

/me goes off stomping & mumbling under breath...

& I suggest if your trying to get rid of your life, I believe not going out the front door can sometimes lead to its removal. It can be tempting sometimes I know - but remember these days most things can be home delivered, and if all else fails lock the door & flush the key... good luck with it all

Yeah, but I managed to destroy CorranSec's base all by myself :D. Also Icarus probably wouldn't have succeeded in invading Cygnus' base if it wasn't for my support. At least I like to think so. I did however have nothing to do with Kimba's destruction.

But yes indeed I did enjoy myself, and will return next week barring any unforseen interferences from my "life".

08-18-2003, 01:49 AM
All this battle talk makes me nostaligic for the good ole days, back when I considered myself a good player (and actually played the game :D)

Maybe we should set up a East coast league...

And Kimba, you came dangerously close to breaking my record of the lowest trivia score of all the forumerites. I take pride in my stupidity. Oh, well, atleast I was the first one to get luke's riddle...

08-18-2003, 05:16 PM
Ah yes an east coast league...we'll probably be overcome by lazyness before finishing setting up the league...

And Sith...no you're not the first guy...Corran actually is the first:p

08-18-2003, 11:43 PM
I thought of the answer the first day I read the riddle, but I wasn't sure it was right (it seemed too obvious) and some of the requirements didn't fit right.

08-20-2003, 02:32 PM
You should have answered earlier then:p

08-22-2003, 08:09 AM
puff puff

finaly make it back to forum...

reads updates....

scratches head not knowing where to start....

"I've been busy - didnt want you all to panic & go crazy thinking I'd gone again... but seems no one notived this time..."

/me realises the novelty of her presence has worn off

Sithmaster I am very glad to not actually beat your record - I am still recovering from the shock of how badly i did! I really didnt guess at that many! lol just goes to show huh...

"I am going to play with the gang tonight... but then I am escaping the southern city of melbourne for the sunny climes of Brisbane for a fortnight with the kids..."

(been busy organising - hence my absence - YES I havent been here for days!!)

so I shant be back until my return Sept 10th or thereabouts....



PS I shall send a postcard....

08-22-2003, 12:58 PM
We'll be waiting for you Kim!

Oh well...

I guess it's just us guys for some time now...

*removes pants*

I guess I can do this huh?

Don't feel too bad Kimba, I designed the trivia to be hard. All the possible answers are actually related to something from the movie, so that people go "Oh yeah I remember that phrase from the movie, that must be it" when it fact that is the case for all possible answers.

While on the topic of my Trivia, I'll be putting everyone's scores up on the webpage, rather than just those people who get them all right. The reason? No-one has got them all right yet, so my score page is empty!

08-23-2003, 09:47 AM
pokes head into room to sneak a peak at Lukesdad....:eek:

08-23-2003, 04:33 PM
*puts pants back on*


I feel so violated...


09-08-2003, 11:19 PM
I'm back!!!!


So what everyone been up to?

Vostock - CorranSec have you played with WTE in my absence?

Windu - Skythe & Siraious why havent you joined us?

Looking forward to fridays game of nail biting tension & strategy

Looking forward to killing more useless mechs as my air force rules supreme

(insert wicked laugh here)

I must go rally the troops...


09-09-2003, 08:03 AM
Actually, er, I've been notoriously absent.
Sorry about this..... currently Friday nights are bad for me. Hopefully my commitments can resolve themselves soon. It's been fun, though (the single match I had).

09-09-2003, 09:44 AM
ok, you guys wanna know something disturbing... I beat 3 people the last time I played GB online with friends from EchoBase... of course they haven't played since.. they got the game... but DAMN.... I beat 3 guys... I scared myself.

of course I'm sure one of you guys can kill me for sure, since I was a n00b kickin' major n00bs' ass :D

Admiral Vostok
09-10-2003, 04:45 AM
Er... pretty much exactly the same Corran said...

This Friday is definitely out for me, we'll just have to see about next Friday...

09-10-2003, 09:23 PM
Kimba- Yay we don't have to feel like this is prison anymore!
Nice to have you back with us. We've missed ya:D

*I'm so good at sucking up, damn*

Phreak-:eek: I guess the zone is now ruled by noobs. OMG!

Wow time to go play on the zone and kick some ass:D
