the first player i met on the centrin server was [RP]NIGHTMARE, he fragged me several times, i can't use my mouse very well, i thought quake 2 is just like Doom (the FPS game), where we can cheat using iddkfa, iddqd, or whatever commands. I used to play Doom at my Martial Arts Dojo, it's quite easy, no mouse needed, just plain keyboards. well i was wrong, quake 2 is much more complex than that, especially at online multiplayer stuffs. [RP]NIGHTMARE then thought me how to bind the controller so i can play quake more professionally (lol).
Months goes by, i'm becoming more better at fragging people at centrin and indonet servers (indosat was way too lagged for me, bad fuckin ping). I have ICQ, i added some indonesian quakers (quake player), i joined the mailing list at egroups.com (later becomed yahoo!groups), i even bought my first 3D Video Card named Voodoo Banshee! haha and finally i have my permanent quake 2 player name "SilverMan" (taken from the marvel character Silver Surfer, and modified with Spiderman, Batman, Superman thing, never known that it would be Sarah's last name). So i fragged, i fragged, i fragged, and i fragged again. And then i'm starting to get bored with my non-clan status because most of the quake mailing list entry are all about quake clans, clans, and clans. There were only 3 official quake clan from Indonesia suchas |id| (indonesian destroyer), [IQ] (indonesian quaker), and [RP] (reformation peacekeepers). Theres this awesome cool war between clans at Rocket Arena mod. ClanWar! I wanna be a part of it, i gotta be a part of it, i must be a part of it! I gotta have a clan! So i asked Reformation Peackeepers (i choosed them because my idol [RP]NIGHTMARE is also in the clan, he's as good as immortal and d11-thrash, q2 pro player from usa, and the clan didnt contain the word Indonesia hahaha i know i'm so lame) if i could join them, they said that i gotta be tested first. So they tested me twice, first was in q2duel6 map with [RP]CiTyHuNTeR & [RP]ZerenX, which i fail because it was my sleep time and my dad's angry asking me to go to sleep instead of playing computer all day. hahaha, i asked his permission for the second test so i can play at night, and he approved. yay! i got tested the second time with [RP]BadPing and [RP]Zombie and i passed the test! Yeah! I changed my name proudly with the [RP] tag on it
[RP]*SilVeRMaN* , that's my name, i know it sounds like an alay name these days hahaha, but remember, it was around 1997-2000, alays don't exist back then. and then quake 3 arena came, and i'm not really interested because i dont wanna start all over again and too busy with junior high school.
i saved the members section page from the [RP] website (it's on xoom haha rest in peace http://members.xoom.com/clan_RP i still remember!) because i'm proud with it. finally i became a part of something. it's more than just an online game clan, the members are also experts in technology and everything, i learned a lot from them.
so heres a html page that i saved from xoom back then (including gifs, excluding [RP]Joshi, sorry it was before you joined the clan :( )
Reformation Peacekeepers Members Section Page
where are they now? i still saw some of them in nusagames mailing list though. [RP]CiTyHuNTeR is now known as ryosaeba (name taken from the main character of city hunter comics, yes, its that pervert guy lol), he has a famous against-maxgain-or-roy-suryo kind of blog on wordpress. where are the rest?
gosh, let's play quake 2 online again
please? *resurrecting my icq from the dead*
