Wow. Time sure flies. I remember it back in 2003 when things were starting, the community was great, I and a few others had a great blast with the fun that MTA was. I myself only joined "the scene" when MTAVC's first release happened. Boy do I remember people trying to find out who were others, everyone calling everyone else a cheater because of the bad syncronization (that got improved over time), the endless gun fights in Malibu near the only player spawn, joys of the first versions.
I met a few people playing this mod, started my own clan (or gang, lol), SM. Those were fun times. Months later I had the previledge of being seen as trustworthy and got invited into beta testing. Some friendly community faces I knew were testing too. I also talked to some developer team members now and then, watched the developer crew change as both old and new developers came into the scene. I have retained some contacts and we speak seldom. Testing new versions, playing in crowded servers with the great community, the gang activity between names like ULK, SM, VCK, VCP, KFC, the forum drama queens like DeathB and Wheelman, the irc master Robpol86, that all made it very fun and memorable.
Just wanted to say this. Bloody hell, have 5 years really passed?
Those who still remember me may recall I may not be the best to express myself through these sort of posts
I do miss those fun days, but that's the way of life.
