    Seems, like the AO team talking about the funnier bugs the most, we like our newb moments the most. Which is ironic considering all the newb bashing that goes on.

    Anywho, the one I remember the most is on my first toon. I'd rolled an adventurer and went Omni having been told they got more money and was the better choice for newbs who were broke. Exited newb island and didn't see Rome, at all. Oh it was there, I just didn't look in that direction, ignoring the crowd that was around the subway I proceeded to run alllll the way down the road and through the fields to the first player city I could find and happened to wander through the Newland wompah.

    Thinking this was the starter city I set about learning the game, discovering the mission terminal and hunting just outside Newland. With my (rl) friend by my side laughing and enjoying the crazy stuff we saw and did it was a great time.

    I remember my first mission. I had pulled it in Bor and the mission itself was in West Athens.

    I had never been outside Bor or Newland and I didnt really know how the whoompah system worked. So i just started running from bor. Didnt have any good map, hadnt even seen the DOVVE's map. Man that was one scary trip. I was so proud when i finally reached Athens. First time around i got killed by a minibull, so second time I took no chances and tried to sneak by every single mob i saw.

    Funniest moments.

    First beast raid with Hellcom, which was a huge raid.

    Logging on to hear "The Unicorns are pink!" was brilliant. Omni-Teks hardest, most feared troops being bright pink and called unicorns.

    Waiting outside the Grind for 4 hours for it to open because i didnt have anything better to do. (I would have liked the AO addict t-shirt for that).

    Keep up the good work you guys and enjoy the celebrations, I'm guessing there wont be much work done on monday...But i think we can let you off there.

    Favorite memory, that's a tricky one. I remember a party at baboons years ago, it was my first time playing the game and I was playing on a level 20ish adventurer (On RK2, I actually didn't find out that it was on RK2 until around 2005 or 2006, I was wondering why the hell no one knew what Evil, Inc. was :P). It was a coop organisation party if I remember correctly, and somehow I got into an argument with another player, I have no idea how, but I remember me saying I would keel him if I could.

    Not knowing that PvP actually existed in the game, it ended up with us heading to the arena with the organisations comming to watch, and then some MA from the other players organisation came in and healed him (I think you had to press a button to enter), I had no idea about it, but apparantly my organisation did and it ended with me seeing my first AO gank :P Then some 200 in the organisation gave me a ql 200 adventurer pistol (can't remember if it was a BBI or a Kaen-Archibald Kolt) because he thought I did a good job

    That's when I for the first time felt that AO was special, and no other game has yet managed to top the encounters I have had in AO, both good and bad ones!

    Did Kintaii sing sweet home Alabama? And if so, did you get video?
    "A whole new place to run around for ages in then die suddenly without warning."

    "I know who coded pet pathing... and when I see him I say "/follow" and I start waling in to walls :P"

    The "Trolls" option is incorrect. The term trolls is not used to describe the gathering of information on the Internet.

    Looking back over almost 9 years of playing AO I found myself smiling, laughing, and even misting up over various memories this game has given me. I could not fathom trying to name a favorite. Instead, I give a sincere thank you to those who have worked toward keeping AO going, and heartfelt hugs to those I’ve had the pleasure of sharing this wonderful journey.

    Happy Birthday AO. May there be many, many more.
    You have not wasted your day if you have laughed at least once and learned at least one new thing. ~Jokzer

    The way I see it, the loot, the levels, all the binary is temporary and can be lost at any time. The only permanent thing in the game are the people and the memories you make with them. ~Silq

    That being said a character part-way (say level 200) might be something I would consider for vets who already have a 220 main.

    This is called "waffling"? 220 just feels offensive...200 a little less.

    haha, same thing happened to me, but on the way from WA to Bor. I didn't have the sense to try and sneak past the mobs, though.

    Thanks FC and all the folks that have worked on it over the years, and to the players that keep it going.

    Can't wait to see what's to come.

    Favourite memories.. Too many to name, and yeah, I know no one knows me.

    Apparently AO has been around longer than we all thought, with pre-alpha starting back when the internet first started!!!

    On a more serious note...

    Thanks Means, that literally brought a tear into my eye. It's such a good feeling to be part of something this grand. Some say people are "wasting their life away" with MMOG's - I say something that gets people involved this much can't be a waste. I am really grateful for all the years, all the happy memories this game brought me.

    Favorite AO memory? That's a tricky one... I really dunno. There are lots of them that I treasure; no single most favorite moment I could point out. Some of the best ones:

    First there were the noobie times, when everything was shiny and new and you were actually exploring the playfields. I loved that. Falling in love with the cyberpunk-ish feel of it all.
    Making money for my first yalm. OMG I can't believe how hard that was (bought it for 5.8m I think).
    My first MP toon. Soloing with an MP is such fun, no other professions can make soloing that interesting.
    Getting involved with my first org. Froobzerging omni towers. Making General.
    Rescuing a poor lil omlet who got stuck in OA, only to have him join our side and our org a few days later.
    Subscribing to SL, getting the first view of the vast landscapes of the Shadowlands.
    My first doc toon. Teaming with a doc is just as fun as soloing with an MP.
    City raiding with my org friends. One team, one purpose. My first mothership tour, I was sooo scared...

    Happy Birthday, AO.

    (Thought i could trick a nooby froob-ark, but got Gannondorph himself. Was surprised that he didn't insta-spot my joke and happy that he didn't insta-kill me after i told him I was really a trader )

    Iriche looks too asian

    My best memory is leading about 30 people, in walk mode from EFP to PW, because someone passed on a Heavy Notum Tank, I marched him, literally, to PW.

    Along the way, guild people joined in, as well as a GM or two, out of the sheer pointless stupidity it all entailed.

    The walk took about 7 hours in the end.. probably the most fun I've had in the game
    Don't be lonely anymore.

    Look at your post, now back at mine. Now back to your post, now back at mine. Sadly, yours isn't mine, but if you stopped trolling and started posting legitimate comments it could look like mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're scrolling through posts, reading the posts your posts could look like. Back at mine, it's a reply saying something you want to hear. Look again, my reply is now diamonds. Anything is possible when you think before you post.

    last year i uploaded a lot of my screenshots (dating back to early '03) there. i guess, most people find them really boring because they didn't make them themselves, but who knows..doesn't hurt to have them

    epic moment... i have to think on that one

    my first kill of aze in totw, that was really cool xD
