Aw, man, I would love to do this!

You know why I can't- no time. Nope, none at all. Shouldn't even spend the time it takes to type this really.

Cool, man. I want to become smarter than humans. I'm sorry, miyumi, I don't have enough information. Reductionism. How can I help you? Hmm.

Alright, I'm kicking this back up for everyone with a new added feature. I will be running a Ventrillo server for us to use or if you just feel the uncontrollable urge to hear my voice. So, without any further delay...

Ventrillo Server
Host: sin.is-a-geek.net
Port: 3784


I'm still going to be running some CS:S games, if you want to join me for a shot into the clan or just for fun, just message me. Also, if you want to play another tournament style game, let me know and I'll play a few rounds with you. I have and have played most of the big name games so I can try to evaluate your ability for the clan if you'd like.

In Warcraft 3 I have been trying to actually increase my skill with something like a 1 on 1 , ffa and team. Mainly I am good at ele td, wilderness survivor. Midnight Maul, midnight MAul war. Poke the ogre. Any type of maul actually. But I am not even think of going back to DOTA because that game bored me out of my mind.

Expect to see a sincere upswing in activity for this in a month or two, when Sin and I are relieved of school duties, and I attain high-speed internet. ;)

Is this still open?

It seems to have died pretty quickly...

To remain on topic, I'm pretty decent at Counter-Strike Source.

And by decent I'm usually in the top 3 killers on either team, usually running a 3.5:1 ratio.

Awesome, good to see more support coming for this. The biggest issue I had with this was getting people to be available when scheduled for a practice. People have lives and that's always #1, as it should be. However, I'm pretty decent at most of the games that were listed. I'm still willing to play any of the games with you guys, just drop me a message some how and I'll definitely put the pwninat0r to max power. With the announcement of StarCraft 2, I'll soon be adding that to the list when it releases.

Anyway, this is an idea that I've really wanted to accomplish for a long long time. So I'll keep giving this a try every so often until I finally get people to come together. I've been pushing Counter-Strike: Source as the primary game to practice on simply because the cash rewards in tournaments for that game tend to be the highest. If there's another game you guys wanna play instead, just ask and I'll be glad to try other things.

And now that I'm back into World of Warcraft, if there is enough support, we can create new characters on a server and create a Clan Wing guild. I know a bunch of us here have WoW, even if we're not willing to admit it. =P

Yeah, a lot of us actually game together. Of course, that doesn't include the WarCrack addicts. Just remember, guys.

My name is ______, and I'm addicted to World of Warcraft.

It's the first step. Recognizing that you have a problem. ;)

For few reasons, I wont divulge in my ignorant hatred for that MMO - so I'll stay hushed.

I'm mainly a FPS kinda guy, aside from Command & Conquer. <3 It's an intense game. And as for SC2 - it should be amazing.

I play CS: Source regularly. If anyone is interested.

Ah yes, Command and Conquer 3. I have had my tushy thoroughly handed to me on that game in multiplayer... Many times. I am still learning the game, but if anyone is willing to help me learn how to pwn in that game, I would love to figure it out. I'll be adding that game to the list as well.

And I also feel bad because I left out another portion of the MMO community here. I'm also actively part of Guild Wars, and though I would be unable to leave my Guild, I don't see why we can't game together and maybe form Guild Alliances on that game.

So yeah, CC3, WoW, and GW I'll be adding to the list of games to participate in.

As for CS:S, I would love to shoot a few rounds with you. I'll see if I can catch you on in between my addiction to the zillions of other games.

I have UT 2004, though I've never played online and I'mprobably really bad at it... I also have WoW, but I'm only lvl 36.
