Hope everyone is doing well. I was initially part of TEQ back in the original days from day 1 (I believe i was the 27th account or so). I founded what became known as the Dark Knights. I only played for about two years but all my memories from those times were very positive. My memory for autobiographical events is not the best so I'm very cloudy in this area around names and such. I have very little left from those times, no working ICQ to keep in touch and the email I was using is long gone.

I do remember the feelings very well however and excitement of logging in multiple times a day to check the markets, coordinate wars, or just chat with members of my alliance. They were simpler times when I had a lot less responsibilities and freedom. I miss them so much. Its sad to think it's been 20 years... And wow how has the internet changed.

A lot has changed for me since that time. I got heavily involved in online poker in 2005, 4 years later dropped out of my PhD program in the final year, moved to a new city. I never thought I would have kids but I now have a two year old daughter. I suppose my life is pretty good.

I wish I remembered more

It has been so long. I remember playing teq for a long time. Even achieved top 50 occasionally with my techer strat. Lot of good times mixed with the bittersweet memories of not so good RL moments. This community and the game meant the world to me for so long.

My memories are also pretty clouded, and can't remember the players, or even the team in which i played. Glad to see that there are still people who remember. Sad to see that there are no active players. But every good thing comes to an end, like they say.

Northstar, very happy to see that I am not the only one that stumbled upon this gem of a website in 2022. I always thought that I would die alone, unhappy and miserable. Now I have a wife and two wonderful boys. And of course, life really was not that bad and everything worked out ok.

I miss the people, even the aggressive douchebags, who would just missile you out of spite. Every single one of us made the game as addictive and fun as it was. I sure had a blast.

Thank you Northstar, your words made me remember, and I also wish I could remember more. (;

Hey Northstar! I remember you. Didn't you win the first-ever round of TEQ? If not, it was one of the first rounds.

Lots of nostalgia in your post - ICQ, checking markets, coordinating with teammates...
This game certainly had something special considering it still has us coming back and checking the forums 20+ years after we first started playing.

It does. It certainly does.

I have a lot of "old nostalgia" materials on my HD, like old BMSs and saved discussions. Even pictures or photos we exchanged at that time. Would be nice to find a way to share these materials ... like a museum haha!

Hi Pez that is correct. I won the first official round and one other time which I believe was exactly a year later. I used the alliance name "New Monsters" for the first round as it was my alliance on solaria or whatever the game was called. It became dark knights the second round.

I believe you founded/ran the $$$$ or banana alliance or something??? I also believe we may have played a round together when MM poached me for his "all star team".

I founded/ran The Radicals, which was an on-and-off team. I know I helped run another team, but I don't really remember which? The diplomacy of the team server was what really hooked me.

Solaria === Earth2025. That game was so much more populated than TEQ, but didn't have the same appeal, for whatever reason. TEQ's peak was over a thousand players (2k maybe, but ~half that were actually active). Earth2025 had tens of thousands of players, but as it turns out, half of them were HAN (Korean alliance) bots and Res Dogs multis.

Yeah, I played on both iterations of [SWAT] - Star Wars All-Stars Team. MM was a maniac, it was too much fun playing on a team led by him. As I recall, we got in epic wars every time, and still managed to compete/win the team networth title.

Banana was run by Raptor. LMO was a big part of that team.
$$$$ I remember, but don't recall who ran that one. I think Ripper was in that team for a while? I was never on either of those teams. LMO and I had a huge love-hate relationship, we loved to debate/argue on the forums about anything and everything.

And yea, the Dark Knights were one of the longest-running teams in the game. Along with RAGE.

Good times.

RAGE was a always such a nice team. Think maybe I got lucky to be on there once, but they kicked me because I sucked back then.
