    Default So what's everyone been up to lately?

    It seems we've let our community become a birthday reminder forum mostly. lol

    I miss you guys and gals.

    Lately, I've gotten into streaming my gaming sessions on Twitch. Shameless plug here. Feel free to drop by anytime and join in the conversation in the chat. I still play with one of our older members Hamster, despite his mixed feelings about the lair. I don't know the history of it but yeah. Other than that, I've been working for a startup company in vision tech involving your smart devices and smart homes etc. Hopefully the tech takes off and I get my bonus.

    Anywho, I'd love to hear what everyone is up to. Heck maybe someday we can get the band back together and play w/e the game we all want sometime. I'll even broadcast it.

    Not much here for me in the gaming. For some reason i haven't been interested in the current BF series.
    Need something to be really creative. Plus work has gotten ALOT busier.

    Arma 3 is my main game of choice.

    Besides that I play Paradox games (Hearts of Iron 4, Stellaris, Crusader Kings 2).

    Would be nice if a good BF came out that we could all get behind, with dedicated servers ran by the community, but sadly it seems that is not the way the genre is heading.

    I miss all of you!

    Sadly Console gaming has completely crushed PC gaming, and the big Companies either run the servers themselves, or they take away the ability for Communities to run their own servers and enforce their own rules :-(

    I've been doing very, very, very little gaming in fact I can't remember the last time I played any game at all. I started a Company and that keeps me occupied 24/7. When I'm not working in the business I work ON the business - for instance I'm the "IT Guy" at my company as you can imagine, I built all my company machines and run and admin the server.

    I'd love to find a PC game, I see people are playing something called Fortnite I may check that out.

    I also discovered "Twitch" this morning - where people watch other people play games, and they can give them money. It seems to have a lot of crazy hot young chicks, who I imagine can make some real, money taking and playing games, while people watch and listen to them. We had a few over the years who could have done well with Twitch. Fiery, I went to your channel but it was some chick playing some weird game that looked like it was for ten year olds! lol

    What's everyone else up to???

    Anyone playing any game I could perhaps run a server for I'd LOVE to reconnect with all of you....

    Take care my friends!!

    I got a new job growing Semi-conductor crystals a year ago, so lots of learning has been happening while i try to come to grips with that.

    Games wise i've been playing a lot of Rocket League, GTA V and Ghost Recon: Wildlands.

    Really sucks how matchmaking has killed off gaming communities, never felt as close to any other game than i did with UT2004, the community really made that game what it was.
    UT2004, FOREVER!!!!

    Ah, you most likely caught my channel when I was offline and my channel autohosts other channels that are friends of mine. And that game sounds like my friend, Megan who goes by the name Catfu. Lately she's been playing animated story games which are very boring to me but she enjoys them since it allows her more time to communicate with her viewers. She makes bank off them too but never brings it up. And she is one of the "smaller" partnered channels. But yeah, lot of hot girls, flaunting their looks for the money on twitch but no one can really say anything or they come across as sexist, etc. Trust me, people have tried but they've all allied themselves with the right male counterparts on twitch who are some of the biggest channels there so they have "allies" to open the floodgates on those people. Whatever, it is what it is but I do as a hobby. I literally just ran a 24 hour stream where I played PUBG - Player Unknown's Battlegrounds and during it I ended up being in the top 400 ranked players in the world in Squad games which is pretty hard since I am only an okay player at best but it is one of my favorite games to play. Here's a link to the video on demand if you want to scroll through it yourself sometime.

    https://www.twitch.tv/videos/225113701

    That's the cool thing about twitch. Even if you're not live, your viewers can simply check out your VODs to watch your content.

    As for Fortnite, Cain. Great game and the Battle Royale part of it is F2P. Fortnite itself is a tower defense like game vs zombies where you build a base and defend off hordes of zombies etc. What you see on Twitch is just the BR counterpart which has largely taken over the game in the streaming world. You'd be surprised how many games live or die thanks to the streaming world nowadays. If it doesn't keep the broadcasters streaming it, the game dies off very quickly for some.

    I'll try more and more to let you guys know when I go live so you can check out my stream but the best way for that is to follow my twitter as I will ALWAYS post there when I go live on twitch.

    https://twitter.com/Dracontious

    Anywho, I'd like to see what else everyone is doing. It's cool to check up on my OG gaming family from time to time. This is where it ALL BEGAN for me. Love you guys and gals.

    Without a Cains Lair game to play, I've been catching up on older single-player games that I missed. Currently, I'm playing LA Noire, a drive/shoot/interogate game that simulates the career of an LA detective in the late 1940s. It's very different for me.

    Yeah, I hear ya. I've been playing lots of single player RPGs off stream but mostly Battle Royale type games when I go live. I still need to play Mass Effect Andromeda amongst other games.

    Thanks for stopping by. I ended up getting a very generous viewer in chat who donated an overwhelming amount and then subbed to the channel. Caught me way off guard as I wasn't in my best mindset when it happened. I was a little bit upset at the moment b/c my friends who I was playing with were being dummies and I was trying to focus on getting the W. lol

    sup friends! Right now i'm playing PubG, rocket league and fortnite. I'm super looking forward to Sea of Thieves, I'm hoping it's gonna be alot of fun. Other than that, i'm just hanging with the wife and kiddo!

    I absolutely love twitch, I thought about streaming myself, but I just don't have the freaking time.

    Does Battalion 1944 have private servers? It's a day of defeat style game that's fairly popular right now.

    Hello everyone.

    I have joined up with AOD and have become a recruiter with them, they have over 3000 members and in our Battlefield division we have over 400 members. It's a great bunch of guy and the fellow officers remind me of my friends here. Because of the crappy EA server scheme it's impossible to manage the servers but because of the numbers there were are able to populate 4 servers and it keeps me busy.

    I recently started playing PUBG, it has a steep learning curve but it's very addicting.

    I also have tried streaming, at this point I only have one video on there that I put up of a PUBG round where we got a chicken dinner!!

    https://www.twitch.tv/dukeclr

    In real life I have been flying the 757/767 to Europe mostly. The time I met Cain, Mrs Cain, Blackarrow and Minerva in Dublin was one of my best layovers.

    I'm still known as DukeCLR as I will never forget the amazing times.

    I'll follow you guys on twitch.

    Hope to play with you all at some point in the future.

    The Admins at AOD also miss the old days when they could actually do something with the servers.
