Can you remember? (in Off-topic)

Finger of Death?
Shield of Mandos?
The supremacy of the Heavy Crossbow?
farming a character required only that you put a rock on the enter key?
Life before forging? clans? Black market? Bot checks? Skills? Buying characters? Unlearning most stats?

I left sooooooo much out, so feel free to add in where i left off.
Just a tribute to the CBers of old...

Buying an ELS from Sutekh without paying for it?

DD34isback(justkidding) [Severswoed Accounting] April 15 2006 1:52 AM EDT

remembered everyone losing chat atleast once a week

Cache Flush was called Crashe Flush because it took 3 days for CB to come back online

Hitting 100k PR (MPR) in a single week, with no NCB or NUB!

I remember preparing to sell about half my stuff to pay my mortgage...Jon announced CB2 two days before I was ready.

Rather harsh reminder that this is a game!

I remember my IAs and when having 1mil PR was thought to be unreachable on CB1.
I remember sending 2 weeks forging my HXB "Phaser Rifle" to X20 +100 ($24mil NW) to tie Todd's "Hellfire" for highest NW bow only to watch him drop $25mil on it in the BS just before I finished.(This was before AXBows EXBows or ELBows were even a glimmer in Jon's eye.)
Ahh good times good times.

RAMPAGE April 15 2006 5:06 AM EDT

BTW that was when forging was still free.

Moddin April 15 2006 5:29 AM EDT

Cause Fear .... every Fight was pure random ;-)
I think it was the same with AMF!
Personally, i did not like the rock on the enter key.
The game got pretty fast boring that way.

Tezmac April 15 2006 5:50 AM EDT

Gosh, about as far back as I can remember is when this guy Newmyco "bought" a huge ELS from Sutekh, but then never paid for it. Then the jerk bothered to show his face on CB2...

Xiaz on Hiatus April 15 2006 6:08 AM EDT

You couldn't buy BA.

Xiaz on Hiatus April 15 2006 6:12 AM EDT

Reading the Help page to learn how to play the game.

Everyone had 15 lochs
Everyone was about 20 people
ProtestBoy
LordBrand
The only interuption to fighting was buying ammo
The retardation that was the ELB
The list goes on for some time ;)

Some of the best times were the constant strat changes Sut and I went through.

/me looks around

Anyone need to change strat anymore, or have we found The One for CB2 yet? ;)

SuiteStuff [C and S Forgery Lmtd.] April 15 2006 11:36 AM EDT

the best part of cb1 and i know this makes me sound like a newb but Lumpbot...when the bot came in fforging was so much easier than going to cbstuff.coma dn looking it up. i remember going to cbstuff.com before lumpbot though adn that was also cool.

DD34isback(justkidding) [Severswoed Accounting] April 15 2006 11:38 AM EDT

Stump!!

QBsutekh137 April 15 2006 11:44 AM EDT

I am backing off now... I am told a money order was sent. I have no idea if it is true or not, and a lost money order is about the easiest way out, but I think I have made my point. All I can say is that I was never paid for the ELS -- that's about as far as I can go...

{CB1}Lukeyman April 15 2006 5:53 PM EDT

I remember..... MrsDi! haha

CB T's

Lots of good things that CB2 will never be able to ammount to
