    Just been thinking about Neveron, and I have to say, I still miss it. Not the last few years before it shut down, but back when it was really happening. No other game has ever come close to capturing my imagination (or time!!) since.

    When I first started, the old arenas were still in play (lost and died), and I still have fond memories of duelling MG-II jeeps, and a little later the MAN-0AX tanks against light mechs. Could make some serious money off them.

    I agree man. Old Nev, especially between around 2003-2005 was the most hard core community warfare I've ever experienced online. And honestly I don't think we'll ever experience anything like the first week of the 2005 Clan War ever again for sheer intensity.

    No matter what happens or doesn't happen to Nev or gaming down the road, we were fortunate to experience that. Few gamers of any stripe will ever have a similar experience.

    Agreed. I wasn't around for that last clan war. But the MMM and Kizo wars were fun. Cracking the old MMM core was a great time.

    Random memory of the day... Pimpslap was like level 6. He hit MMM which was unheard of at the time. Madman wanted to teach the little upstart a lesson, attacked Pimps empire, and spent millions of $ attacking the lower level empires zones. Pimp ran him around the map all the while talking shit the way only he can do and eventually MMM was forced to withdraw his battallions. Priceless. I'm pretty sure that was still back around the time my emporer was still running around collecting rep in a cicada haha.

    Good stuff, Nev was awesome for things like that. Reminds me of how I got invited to HoC in the first place. I was CapCon and was attacked by HoC. Ended up taking out the LW emp that had dropped on me with a couple of locusts and wasps. lol

    Remember the days of jump INF - HD a bat into a 1ker, set each INF unit into some expensive buildings and tell them to hold place. Was a cruel and mean thing, especially in the days of fatigue!

    hahaha yeah I do remember that. I also remember that being one of Mantis's favorite tactics. =P

    In Gen Prime, I saw that Starfury, a level 4 or 5, was getting raided by one of the DEST DP bastard empires, so I jumped in BP to see the situation. Starfury had already lost 2 or 3 mechs, and 2 or 3 more were getting into mauling range on autopilot before I could organize the defense. In all, I was running a TBT-7K, OTL-4F, GRF-1S, CDA-3C, OSR-2M, and 5 Snipers, all 3 gun or worse. The DESTie brought an upgraded Imp ("Cookie Monster"), a stock HGN-732 ("Käptn Blaubär"), and one Sniper, all 0 gun or better. Things were looking iffy until round 7 after I joined the battle:

    Code:
    Phase #7
    
    Cookie Monster hits GRF-1S with a ML on the right arm for 5 points
    Cookie Monster hits GRF-1S with a ML on the right torso for 5 points
    Cookie Monster hits GRF-1S with a LRM-15 on the right arm for 5 points
    Cookie Monster hits GRF-1S with a LRM-15 on the right arm for 1 points
    Cookie Monster fires a ML-49 at GRF-1S, needing a 6 to hit and rolling a 4. A miss!
    Cookie Monster hits GRF-1S with a ML-50 on the left leg for 5 points
    Cookie Monster hits GRF-1S with a ML-55 on the right leg for 5 points
    Cookie Monster hits GRF-1S with a PPC-94 on the left arm for 10 points
    Cookie Monster hits GRF-1S with a PPC-94 on the left torso for 10 points
    Käptn Blaubär hits TBT-7K with a GR on the left torso for 15 points
    TBT-7K has had its left torso destroyed by Käptn Blaubär!
    TBT-7K loses use of the LA from torso destruction
    12 points of damage transfers to the CT of TBT-7K!
    TBT-7K has been destroyed by Käptn Blaubär!
    CDA-3C hits Käptn Blaubär with a PPC on the head for 10 points
    OSR-2M 1 hits Käptn Blaubär with a LL on the right leg for 8 points
    OSR-2M 1 hits Käptn Blaubär with a LL on the head for 8 points
    Käptn Blaubär has had its head destroyed by OSR-2M 1!
    Käptn Blaubär has been destroyed by OSR-2M 1!
    SNP-1 1 hits Sniper with a IDF-2 on the right side for 2 points
    SNP-1 1 hits Sniper with a IDF-2 on the right side for 2 points
    SNP-1 2 fires a IDF-2 at Sniper, needing a 7 to hit and rolling a 6. A miss!
    SNP-1 2 fires a IDF-2 at Sniper, needing a 7 to hit and rolling a 4. A miss!
    GRF-1S fires a ML at Sniper, needing a 10 to hit and rolling a 8. A miss!
    GRF-1S fires a ML at Sniper, needing a 10 to hit and rolling a 8. A miss!
    GRF-1S fires a LRM-5 at Sniper, needing a 8 to hit and rolling a 7. A miss!
    GRF-1S fires a LL at Sniper, needing a 8 to hit and rolling a 3. A miss!
    SNP-1 3 hits Cookie Monster with a IDF-2 on the right arm for 2 points
    SNP-1 3 hits Cookie Monster with a IDF-2 on the right leg for 2 points
    SNP-1 6 fires a IDF-2 at Käptn Blaubär, needing a 8 to hit and rolling a 4. A miss!
    Sniper hits GRF-1S with a LRM-10 on the right arm for 5 points
    Sniper hits GRF-1S with a LRM-10 on the left torso for 3 points
    After that point, the Imp retreated as fast as it could go, as did the Sniper, lifted out of the AOR, and let the raid time out.

    Hhmm, I loved my elite grf-dest emps, I think I got one down to -4/-6 with a -1/-4 sty. Loved playing with them.

    Griffin / STY lances were fun to fight with at L4-L5. Best empire composition I had was a 5/8/5 lance (GRF's, STY, OSR-2M, etc), 4/6/4 lance (hopper, GLT, etc) and a thug + cyclops spotters for sniper companies. I made sure to have a reasonable market mech (OSR-2M for example) in each lance to take on risky and/or close range jobs if the lances had to fight independently.

    i rember my first real mech on mech fight was a true ass kicking. mr kato 100% handed me my ass. although as he pointed out i sucked so bad i couldnt join hoc at the time i was sent to one of his merc factions called hotpocket cult. from their i learned and adapted cut throat tactics and real life table top tactics that worked very well in neveron. then i was pissed off by the hoc-anti-hoc bs. i went indy with the support of buc, kato, mithrander, veli, dags the list is long. although in the end KOD was still not 100% as feared as HOC i was still 5 factions strong and able to stay in the middle of the bs hoc-anti hoc crap. in the end i was not proud of my ROE but i had to adapt to the sess pool of shit that was left in neveron. you hit one of me 10 hit you back at the same time. although offered time and time again from both sides to pick a side? i refused. in the end myself and gemini built a faction that needed no out side help for money of tanks. i miss neveron the most when i was a noob and even more as a hard ass faction leader. then again my pet name lmfao *salvage whore*? think that one i can thank buc for. well i still have over 300 mechs in salvage. you can never have enough salvage. l8rs DABOSS

    lol I do remember all of that. Good times. May SM burn for refusing to let someone else pick up the pieces. I have little doubt that even broken to hell, if Neveron was owned by someone who cared and listened, people would still login, still try to play from time to time, and probably still donate once in a while.

    I just want to long and take a look, maybe a quick round in the arena. I'd no longer have the time available to play like we used to, but that's ok.
