AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 30 2006 12:50 PM EST

there was a reason to own a Katana...

(keep it going folks)

there was a reason to visit the store...

(these are just examples)

the forge dwarf ate a monkey...

(ok so I made the last one up)

there was a market for rares...

(ok so that one was bitter)

we used to have to type the name of our own chars to xfer money!

The same can be transferred to real life also, it's called evolution and technological revolutions.
there was a reason to visit the store.....
like there is in the real world with internet shopping around?
there are many things which make us all even lazier than we need to be, such as TV remotes and the computer you are sat at to play games and research information, I once knew of outdoor games, board games and a library which we no longer need.
Grow with the evolving world or become a whining old fossil in your ancient world :D

Ah the good old days when i once spent about 200k on a katana which i could now get for 50k lol oh well it's good to see some of these changes.

IRL...

...kids were something more than little adults...

...strangers said hello to each other (even in California)...

...the means may not have been quite so justified, but at least we could see an end...

...Remember when you could bid on an item in auctions and not have a bot auction snipe it from you?

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] January 30 2006 5:50 PM EST

...when CB2 : USD = ~100k : $10

RAMPAGE January 30 2006 6:00 PM EST

...CB1 ruled the universe.

QBRanger January 30 2006 6:07 PM EST

CB1 even existed... sigh

QBOddBird January 30 2006 6:09 PM EST

...it was too early in the game to create a "remember when" thread...

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 January 30 2006 6:49 PM EST

...people went outside because they didn't play CB2

[T]Vestax January 30 2006 7:42 PM EST

...you could get AGs in exchange for BGs. (The best, and only, trade I ever made with Central Bank.)

[Jedi] Danludar January 30 2006 7:56 PM EST

.....a loch was an important item (cb1 what a good memory *tear*)

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 30 2006 8:08 PM EST

QBOddBird January 30 2006 8:10 PM EST

{CB1}Lukeyman January 30 2006 8:19 PM EST

Remember the days when I used to be king?

[T]Vestax January 30 2006 8:20 PM EST

...a gallon of gas was less then a gallon of milk.

jayuu January 30 2006 8:22 PM EST

..... every change in the game was designed to give Todd an unfair advantage.

..... every poll had a "Mushu option".

sssimmo January 30 2006 8:58 PM EST

.....when Monty, that little child, fooled a lot of people and ripped everyone off.

Sorry...but someone had to mention it....

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] January 30 2006 9:39 PM EST

...when compound bows were "rare", mostly in cb1...

sssimmo January 30 2006 9:50 PM EST

....remember when rares were put straight into auctions thus ending camping so idiots started camping compounds.

Maelstrom January 30 2006 9:51 PM EST

...when sssimmo had his full, unabbreviated name ;)

Stephen January 30 2006 10:52 PM EST

...When there were more than 2 changes in a change month...

Undertow January 30 2006 11:21 PM EST

..... When the game was so unbalanced we NEEDED more than 2 changes a month.


..... When you spells could FAIL!

sssimmo January 31 2006 4:32 PM EST

....do you remember when, we used to sing....

[Jedi] Danludar January 31 2006 5:03 PM EST

When Jayuu actually totally dominated all competition instead of nearly dominating it......

When people had 1 billion NW.....

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] January 31 2006 5:10 PM EST

..remember when we all used to get along, and we had one room to rule them all...

Godpanda January 31 2006 5:26 PM EST

... remember when we all just got along? because I dont

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 31 2006 5:37 PM EST

CB was down for almost a day recently, that could have been when...

...A FB was a FB, and a Loch was a Loch.

RAMPAGE January 31 2006 5:43 PM EST

...it was possible to take a single tank to over 3 million PR

sssimmo January 31 2006 6:14 PM EST

....you could fight in wacky money times and get up to $4000 per battle.

{CB1}Lukeyman January 31 2006 9:32 PM EST

you could change your name every 2 days, ahh.. those were good times

Stephen January 31 2006 9:36 PM EST

...We had inexhaustible arrows...
...And you could merge them into bundles of 16...
...And someone paid millions for a bundle the week before they were removed from the game...

[T]Vestax January 31 2006 11:10 PM EST

..."Corn in the Store!" was the best gag in chat.

PirateKing January 31 2006 11:14 PM EST

..."Corn in the Store!" was the best gag in chat.

Which had its roots in the "Loch in the store!" gag back in the primordial ooze of pre-BA CB1. :P

{CB1ate}aupStar January 31 2006 11:48 PM EST

...remember when a monkey attacked the server and Jon caught it with his son's GI Joe training net and sold it on ebay? o_O...

the kidneys went for 1 mil CB1$ each...;) and yes they were very delicious! ^_^

Going further back... When you could change your name a often as you wish before Jon put in the 2 day Mushu rule.

AdminShade February 1 2006 5:29 PM EST
