15 years later...!

Post by bushmanners » Thu Jan 07, 2021 9:21 pm

Good evening and long time no speak...

As most of us are at the moment (if able) I was working from home as per usual today when a friend messaged me about a racing game which is available on Steam. Having not used Steam properly in years (nor do I have a gaming Desktop thesedays like the blingy custom one with surround sound I had in the past), I started reminiscing about my late teens and what games I used to play. Long story short, I remembered I joined |2es when it first started back in 2005 (thereabouts) as a17 year old, completely new to online gaming. I can't remember how I originally came across the clan but I had been nuts about Battlefield 2 and mrix welcomed me into the group after I sent him a "May I join?" email. He, I, Cyrus, Grim, Crewey and others would tear up Gulf of Oman, Strike at Karkland (always a tricky one) and Dalian Plant, working together as a team via TeamSpeak. @Grim, I believe I taught you how to fly under the aircraft carrier in a Heli at one point - we had such a laugh! I loved those times and I just want to say, I had a difficult time at school, with minimal friends at college and it was nice to be playing with some like-minded individuals who were kind to me and actually allowed me to be part of a CLAN! (Even if I was awful!!!). I'm 32 now!

Needless to say, I did some Google searches (this page was hard to find by the way!) and realised 15 years later my profile is still set up! To access this account it required trying to get access to an email address which I hadn't used since to perform the password reset - absolute nightmare 😂

Anyway, enough of my rambling...thought I'd say hi. How are you keeping and how has the clan developed since?

I hope you are all keeping safe and well. Happy New Ye...Lockdown!

Best wishes,

David

Blimey its always brilliant to hear anything back from old |2es-members :D 8)
The |2es- has died as a clan but I keep the forum running as it has so many great memories, you never know when it might get |2esurrected " excuse the pun ", I often read back through topics of years gone by and it does bring so many fond memories flooding back :D
I will always have such fond memories of the |2es-clan and all the characters we had a members over the years!
There are still a few knocking about who post on here from time to time :) Mook, Elgordo, Grim, they are all still gaming.
Once upon a time we all stuck to specific games like Battlefield and Cod but as the years moved on so many different games were being released which pretty much split the clan up, no sooner as a game got released it was on to another game.
I noticed you just commented on one of my videos, give me quite a shock when you quoted Bushmanners 8O
Glad your all good your end and thanks for making the effort to drop by :D

Mrix,

Great to hear back from you! Sorry to hear the clan has died but thanks for keeping my profile active. Glad there's still a few of us knocking about! Do you play any games online? I was considering starting up PC Gaming again this year so would be up for playing an up to the minute shooter with you all again if you would be?! I'll do better at keeping more active and it would be a laugh to perhaps '|2esurrect' us. I don't know what my reason for leaving was before - I looked back through the thread and can't remember! Probably exam related or an old job...

If you play PS4 it would be nice to connect there too. I play Gran Turismo Sport and Tekken 7 regularly...but that's just about it. Should I acquire a new gaming PC then I'd probably look at the Battlefields again. I wonder if anyone plays BF2 still.........🤔

Great to hear from you.

We had a few hundred members go through the place during |2es- but there are those that stand out more like yourself, not sure if you remember Mook ? he was around your age, he is my nephew I think you were mentioned as a past member recently when we spoke, there were always those members that stuck around a bit longer and made more of a impression and you were one of them 8)
There are a few of us gaming, not me personally as getting to old for it, 54 this year! ouch! and the reflexes for headshots are not quite what they were :cry: :lol:
:lol: Hopefully we can get a few oldies to respond to this thread very soon.

That's kind of you to say that Mrix - they were good times! Mook does ring a bell! Hope he's doing well!

I don't do much gaming either to be honest. I'm on PlayStation but ever since I stopped playing BF2 there are so many ways people can hack and cheat in games that it spoilt the fun! That said, I am loving Tekken 7 and Gran Turismo Sport online on PS4 and for single player, Jedi Fallen Order at the mo...but as I said in my first message, I'd love to get a decent gaming rig again sometime 😁

I'll keep checking back here occasionally to see if any of the old lot still do any gaming and what they play. Perhaps someday we can organise something!

The forum is no frequented much these days but generally a few oldies pop in now and again so I suspect they will respond to your topic albeit a little on the delayed side :lol:
