Man, its been a ride. Some of you may not know, but I started playing Legions just under a month after it came out. I played it here and there. It wasnt till a few months later that, On Bladerun, Deathball23 of the 57th Midnight Squadron invited me to IRC and Vent. You see, Legions was my first major online computer game, I played console before that. I had no idea wtf IRC or Vent was. I joined up and played in 4v4s and 5v5s for like 2 weeks. Always hard to get Pugs going back then. Slowly we gained people to play 7v7s over and over, and youre damn right that we did. Then came one fateful game. Frostbyte, Blue (way before alpha/beta team) side, APC as captain. I was picked last, and didnt like it. I wanted to be useful. APC said 4, just 4, little words that changed my Legions experience forever. "Who wants to HoF?" I agreed to after a few seconds as no one spoke up. I wanted to be useful. From there. I grew. I joined Velocitys EXP for a short time before migrating to Team Vorticity also known as Zeta (or the Zeta Boys). Zeta was mediocre at the start. Our standoffs sucked, but we could escort cappers with ease, that was our strength. All the while, I HoFed. actually, I HoFed for a year and a half without stopping. Seriously, Every Comp game, PuG, or Pub, I was playing as a Heavy on the stand. Every. Damn. Game. Apcizzle wanted me to for the team, so I did. As time went on, Zeta gained strength in its standoff defense. Its what we practiced the most. Kryst used to take me into private servers and toss flags towards my general area. and I iODed them. I did this for hours. Ill come clean right here and now with hindsight and truth. I was never the best Heavy. Desk could out duel and move me. But god damnit, I was the best Heavy on Flag in this game at its peak. My stand ability with flag-play was second to none. You could MA me, out duel me, and sometimes get past me, but I learned when you did. Multiple high end cappers during comps biggest days said I was the hardest HoF to get by, and damn if I agree. its all I could do. I played this game for 5 *dancing* years. 5 *dancing* YEARS. This game will always be a highlight of my life. The genre I was introduced to, the people I met, the high points and lows. all of it. Man what a ride. Legions for Life. God speed to all of you.Legions will always be in my heart, and because of that, may it never truely die. what is there else to say? hmm... what do I remember? The specialist classes. The iOD flinging. Misty Mountain Hop. Mabel-han. Cores original death trench. and Moonshines too. Cores old stand. Clothesline of Doom. I was on Mirages first ever Pick up. Legions Player Radio. (Legions Live) bi-weekly patch releases. that shitty old spawn on blue side down low for Frostbyte. APCs ol'faithful cap route on Frostbyte. Stealths first map that had full bases, and 'The_Bots' logo. The shotgun. The Armageddon cannon. One Small Step. My rendition of Canyon Crusade. Outlawls zero ping sniping. the Mornaval.
