Oh wow, where do i start off. Well let me see.
Ive been playing ra2 at 01, nothing serious. just a game from time to time, my very first account was "tomchrono". i was pretty much, what you would call a "nub".
It all started for me at 02, after YR was just released. I remember my bro (ante - flexocrep/paykohan) would wake up early in the morning before school just to play some YR QM's. The PC was in my room, so i woke up aswell and watched him play everytime. He was pretty good. To that time i still wasnt into CNC that much, atleast not competitive-wise. I used abit of sovs, and a bit of allieds. My brother used Yuri, we had alot of "fights" - conversations. It mainly ended up me saying yuri is for noobs and unfair. He would always say something like "you just dont know how to play yuri".
Well one day i got **** and started to play Yuri myself, thats where everything started. It was somewhere early 02, january or february. We were switching roles, i played yuri that month, and my brother soviets.
The first month ever as Yuri, my account was "Yurikilly" - my brother had the account "Sovkilly" - i copied him
Anyways we both were qming, him as soviets - me as yuri - who would do better. I finished rank 1.
After that month i was so much into yuri, that ive continued playing it, i got famous. i finished one rank 1 after other, T0mislav, live0rdie, Murd3rlnc, just to name a few.
Very soonly i was so into YR and increased my yuri play that ive faced the bests and beaten the bests for a rank 1. ir0nclad, yurisiave, bapor93, darlok45, lwinagain, imsoneone, just to name a few.
Then i met people like Tommi, Lahham, Yak, Ryan. We started to clan together. We finished several clanrank 1's. *Y-Y* was our first famous clan in YR history.
XCL started very soon, since i was anti-cheaters, i straight joined the server. To that time i was pretty "unknown" in the ra2 scene, since I used to be a YR player all the way. I continued my streak getting rank 1's.
RA2 got more famous to that time, more competitive, people like kane/kit/aeg1s would return again. Play competitive.
I was still heading YR and people like babak/willy would spread my success on forums, then it all started from new.
I got blamed, i was a "yuri newb". i couldnt handle a real game like ra2. That was mainly stated from the RA2 legends, all the yr players would try to defend me and put me up, but without success. I was a "Yuri newb", and thats it.
So one day i decided to switch to ra2, lets see if they're really better than the YR oldschoolers, very first month i met people like
I destroyed one after other. People went around saying i "lag", i "cheat", they just didnt understand how a "YR noob" could own the bests his first month of ra2.
To that time i was so into CNC that ive continued playing both games, i successed everywhere. there were a few months in row - or short time of period, where i finished rank 1 in QM and clan - both games.
Later on XWIS started, i keep continued playing. Sadly the game started to get inactive and people left the game due to that. I didnt, i didnt give up hope. Until one day i was in the lobby, just like every other day. It was early october 05.
60 people were online, immediatly it increased to 100, 200, 300, 1000. A dream come true, the redirection happend! on sundays there were almost 2k players online!
The top 100 had 1000pts+, you could go to qm and get insta games until 1100pts. Even after that, you just had to wait some time in qm to get games, or arrange in lobby.
The legends returned, didnt stop me off anything. I keep continued playing and succeeding. The game was bumping, everyone was playing everyone. Clan was active. QM was very active. You had usually 10-20 clangames up to join. FFG's a tons. It was almost like back in the days.
Everyone was so excited and we all had a great time.
I decided its enough for me at middle 06, where i dropped my activity and hardly played until 09, where i returned and straight got rank 1 - four times in a row. But it wasnt the same for me anymore, i missed the competition, the action.
Now 3 years later, march 2012. I returned once again. some people increased hardcore over the years, but thats what happens when u dont compete in 6 years:P
lets see how long it will last this time until im gone .....
