Super thread, cool to see some old familiar names :-)

1. What was your first beta?
No idea, never could remember beta numbers, pretty early on though.

2. Who was your first LC?
Probably Zypher, it always seemed to be Zypher, for the first 150 or so turns till the inevitable melt down though :-)

3. Who was your favourite LC?
Zypher and Whykt and Boris... yeah, one those three

4. How did you find to the game?
Urgh, memory really not working, I used to do a flash game and was in a clan on that with Antslayer and he brought me across.

5. Who's your favourite TVS person of all time? (no offense to the rest )
Comes back to Zypher for madcap antics and Whykt for calmly putting the pieces back together again afterwards.

6. What's your favourite TVS nickname of all time?


7. Do you still remember playing without sleep tick and autopilot?
I do. I didn't get much sleep in the early games. Now I get too much sleep that the sleep ticks and autopilot can't stop me from getting killed.

8. Do you still remember scantowers?
Yeah, but only vaguely :?

9. Do you still remember how you had to make sure the LC's ship didn't get destroyed?
I'm not sure that was a feature still when I first started but my memory is way too hazy from far too many late nights staying up to make the last possible tick before turning in. LOVE the new auto-pilot system.

10. What was your first nickname?
Don't think I ever changed from my beloved squiggles ~~

11. What is your favourite taunt?
So many old classics but loving the newer ones too, hard to nail that to just one.

12. And finally... show us your favourite TVS avatar if you still have it somewhere! (I really miss avatars, why were they removed?)

Does it count as a thread necro if it's still on the front page? Figured I'd do this while I was here. ;)

1. What was your first beta?
4c, I think. Pretty sure I missed 4b.

2. Who was your first LC?
Max_Power. I did a minor know-all thing that resulted in him going rogue, so I was my second LC. :P

3. Who was your favourite LC?
Legion I think. Beta 7 was just nuts.

4. How did you find to the game?
Like Hachiman/Suicidesquad, came over from the PCG forums. I don't live there any more either.

5. Who's your favourite TVS person of all time? (no offense to the rest )
Tough one. Maybe Stile? Or Ewokdude? Whoever it was who suggested Holly is a Bad Bad Person. :P

I started on honourable mentions but there's too many and I'll miss people. So I'll restrict myself to just those.

6. What's your favourite TVS nickname of all time?
Eh, dunno. Maybe Shiid. Succinct and kept us all arguing about his/her sex for ages (I don't think I ever worked it out :P ).

7. Do you still remember playing without sleep tick and autopilot?
Yes. That was way better back when I was an undergrad. Now I have a life I prefer things with sleep tick, though I still haven't really gotten used to the autopilot.

8. Do you still remember scantowers?
I invented them, IIRC. So yes. :P

(Disappointed there isn't more love for scan towers out there... ;) )

9. Do you still remember how you had to make sure the LC's ship didn't get destroyed?
Yes - that's why we put the scan towers in!

10. What was your first nickname?
VoxDei. Anonymity is boring. ;)

11. What is your favourite taunt?
Not sure. I have tended to use "SPOOOOOON!" a lot to say hello again. Also always liked "Is that it?" in appropriate situations. ;)

12. And finally... show us your favourite TVS avatar if you still have it somewhere! (I really miss avatars, why were they removed?)
Most of mine suck (I'm no artist) and I can't remember/don't have copies of the ones that weren't mine.
...except on thinking about it I do have some because I've still got all the old UCS files. Anyone want any of those? Anyway, I'm going to go with the 525th Talons, because that squad was just crazy! Special mention to R13. Which I never joined because I very rarely went rogue, but still.

EDIT: Having re-found my UCS files I've been reading some of the old descriptions and accounts of betas. Might post them somewhere, for nostalgia's sake. Not tonight though. ;)

1. What was your first beta?
Hrm, 5A I think?

2. Who was your first LC?
Morgana was actually my first and second LC.

3. Who was your favourite LC?
TumNarDok

4. How did you find to the game?
A player in a different online game recommended it to me.

5. Who's your favourite TVS person of all time?
I don't think I ever had as much fun as I did flying cloakers with Boris. Had a great time flying with Gunhild, Hapiface, and Josephine5 too. And WHY WOULD SOMEONE EVEN MENTION HOLLY?! I made a squad devoted to killing Holly (mostly out of boredom, after I had lost my starting legion) one Beta. Also the only person to ever directly cause me to go Rogue.

6. What's your favourite TVS nickname of all time?
Actually, I always got a kick out of Hapiface's name. Mostly because she'd get so ticked off at me sometimes. :-P

7. Do you still remember playing without sleep tick and autopilot?
Actually, I MOSTLY remember playing without those...

8. Do you still remember scantowers?
Oh yeah. There was a fight between the Bors and Tibs in DH over a tower that still stands out as one of my favorites.

9. Do you still remember how you had to make sure the LC's ship didn't get destroyed?
Yes. I fondly remember the speculation over who the enemy LC was. I unfondly remember getting mowed down trying to protect an inactive LC.

10. What was your first nickname?
I know I used a bunch before, but the first that stuck that I remember was DREAM.

11. What is your favourite taunt?
Dunno, never used them all that much.

12. And finally... show us your favourite TVS avatar if you still have it somewhere! (I really miss avatars, why were they removed?)
I have it somewhere, but can't find it. The 'growly' Boris came up with for the Bor cloaker squad in...whatever beta that was. I think someone else made it, but I just remember Mr. B sending it to me.

Thanks for starting this thread, Scyza!

Holly was the evil TVS needed.
I loved the presence of hate he enticed from everyone.
I remember I campaigned to follow his pick up strategy. Classic.
