Feature: Memoirs of a TDZK Player

Postby Harbinger » September 14th, 2010, 3:15 pm

To tide everyone over until the next installment of his 'History of TDZK' series is complete, this week we're turning to you, our inactive, grumpy audience to regale on past achievements and complain of rounds past.

When did you start playing TDZK? What are your fondest memories? Any fun IRC quotes you would care to share? Alliance histories, politics, etcetera? Forum drama (you know you had some!)? Etcetera. Let us know in this thread.

My fondest memory is leading my alliance, the Orange Soda Stealers, on an epic 37 hour raid of Liz's refrigerator. We used 73 raid teams with 6 RCs. Turns were a huge limitation in this raid, and the final raid teams were nearly out of turns when the fridge finally popped, ejecting 126 cases of orange soda. All the remaining turns were used drinking the loot.

Interesting footnote, FOAM-E's sugar-rush demonstration was not actually caused by halloween candy, but was a result of this raid.

Had to dig quite deep into my not-so-good memory to remember when it actually was that I started playing, but after some inspection it must have been around the final weeks or days of round 1. Heard about this new game from Pete and decided to give it a try. Pete generously transferred me some money, which I though was a pretty big penny (and which was actually just pocket change) and I bought and built this (I think it was) lvl 135 cruiser, which of course was completely rubbish piece of rainbowssss. Some time later Pete arranged the port I was docked to be raided by his friends in CoE, just because he wanted me to be podded. Some friend eh? ;)

For the new round that was about to start I had no plans, just thought to (try to) learn the game a bit and have some fun. At some point I grew tired of numerous "do you wanna join my alliance?"-messages and decided to form my own, which I called Space Merchants. And after a little while there were few members in it, couple of old friends and some new faces.

At this point the aim of the alliance (if there even was one) was just to have some fun. But eventually, more and more old friends and some new faces joined in and soon the purpose of the alliance became dominance. And eventually, the alliance changed its name to something that better described its character and membership: KAOS - Kill Anyone On Site!

My memory is utter and complete rainbowssss sadly, but i remember general feelings and i can say TDZK was one of my best experiences in a game. From my level 275 interceptor, to adrenaling-pumping raidjumps and nuking Bink for 20something rounds just to get in the Bounty leaderboards.. great fun was had. All i have to show for it now is a file called tdzk.txt which contains the quasifunny ircquotes, for better or for worse.. enjoy:

Spoiler:

Fun Quotes:
Crono about wrong pirating after raid:
[23:38:03]@Crono : a huge zallun warrior walks into the port market area, there's flames everywhere and sparks shooting out of every computer panel, and he says to the clerk hiding behind the counter: "hey, i'm looting this port here, but, i seem to have taken a wrong turn and picked up the wrong box, mind if I return this?"

<Zanderif> /me kicks Ryan
<Zanderif> hey!
