A 2009 CB T-Shirt?? (in Off-topic)

Newlin [SeeD] January 5 2009 2:36 PM EST

Maybe we could get one of these for all the newer players who joined after 2007...Just a thought.

Andy January 5 2009 3:09 PM EST

Or 1 for the people who weren't on active at that time...

*points at me*

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] January 5 2009 3:24 PM EST

/me seconds that. I was totally not playing when they handed those out. I would pay money to have one available to me again ^_^

Lord Bob January 5 2009 3:51 PM EST

The whole point of the shirts was a trophy for old players. Since newbies already get handouts that vets don't, a new t-shirt that we DON'T get would be a huge slap in the face to those of us who were here from the beginning.

This receives a huge "heck no" vote from me.

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] January 5 2009 3:55 PM EST

I can understand that, Bob. But I was without a computer (mine died) during the time they were released, so I was just saying that I'd pay to have one since I was here but not necessarily active during the release.

Colonel Custard January 5 2009 3:59 PM EST

How about this: Retroactively issue a CB T-shirt for every year since CB2's inception. Then, really old players will have a T-Shirt from 2005, 20006, 2007, 2008, and 2009, while NUBs only have one or two. It will still show how long everyone's been around, and vets would get one free AC for every year they've been around! And, since some players would have 5 shirts and potentially less than 5 minions, make them equippable over each other. I could like junction 4 of 'em to my Jiggy.

j/k. I'm kinda with Bob, here, though, and I sympathize with Hakai.

ooh, oh! how about everyone gets a shirt. your shirt gives you a plus equal to the number of years you have been a member to each minion on your team. vets would get more benefit but more recent members wouldn't be left out. finally, change the shirt into a codpiece. woohoo!

QBOddBird January 5 2009 4:31 PM EST

I'm with dudemus on this one. We've been lacking a codpiece armor slot for far too long.

Define "beginning".

"Define "beginning"."

Of CB2.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] January 5 2009 9:42 PM EST

I haven't even been on CB for long, but I still agree with Dudemus, it sounds like a great idea.

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] January 5 2009 10:22 PM EST

I agree with Hakai (I was in a similar boat, a supporter from the beginning but couldn't play), I honestly would like to have a chance to get something that was available but is now unattainable. Dudemus you are too funny but in an odd way I agree. Maybe a new piece of armor......supporter only item? The way he presented it seems reasonable to me, available to all but vets get more bang for their buck.

Wizard'sFirstRule January 5 2009 10:23 PM EST

yes, I would like extra t-shirts for my minion. 1 AC for a single minion at 2.8m MPR or so is embarassing. 2 AC would be so much better, like twice as good.

Newlin [SeeD] January 5 2009 10:40 PM EST

I like dudemus' idea as well.

QBOddBird January 5 2009 10:51 PM EST

IIRC, those T-shirts were released as a kind of "I was here before CB was on Facebook!" thing just before CB went live on FB. (not that anyone uses CB from facebook.)

So honestly, I don't see why he would release another. I don't think his intention was to start an annual t-shirt trend.

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] January 5 2009 11:03 PM EST

But...I -was- here before facebook *puppy dog eyes*

QBOddBird January 5 2009 11:05 PM EST

But were you active when they were handed out? It would be silly to hand out t-shirts to users who signed up in '05 and quit...then came back in '09. Right? Right? OK, whatever.

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] January 5 2009 11:50 PM EST

Hehehe...Well you do have a point. But I reserve the right to blame OB personally for all my future disappointments in life. *grins*

QBOddBird January 5 2009 11:54 PM EST

But I never told you about your mother and I...

j'bob January 6 2009 12:03 AM EST

oh OB, you naughty naughty pirate. for shame, for shame.
I think Hakai should get YOUR shirt in that case!!!!

QBOddBird January 6 2009 12:05 AM EST

That is quite possibly the best idea ever.

As the web's premier naughty pirate, I hereby propose a trade. I'll rip off my shirt for you, Hakai, if you surrender all yer booty.

j'bob January 6 2009 12:16 AM EST

Buddy Lee quickly pulls off and throws his flannel at Hakai!

then carps the pirate

I dunno Lord Bob, I'd sure like a 2003 CB T-Shirt.

Brakke Bres [Ow man] January 6 2009 2:00 AM EST

yeah me too, DD bonus :)

kevlar January 9 2009 8:04 PM EST

why not just make it easy and have it available to those who have played the game for X amount of time.... and you can add other specials with more time played. Would encourage people to stay around.

A year played CB... you get a shirt.

(A + every year would be too nuts I think, sounds very exponential)

Lady Die January 9 2009 8:16 PM EST

And where exactly is the money coming from for all of these shirts.

Lady Die January 9 2009 8:22 PM EST

Yeah. Ignore me.

TheHatchetman January 9 2009 8:28 PM EST

a + added every year would also be quite unrealistic... I've noticed that the older my T-shirts get, the less they look like they could protect me in battle... I mean, there's a hole in one of my Twiztid shirts from where i snagged it on a bush... What's my shirt going to do to protect me from an arrow? :P

camo. Assuming you don't wash it.
