    Bored today at work & started thinking about how much useless df1 memories/knowledge I have that I'll never be able to discuss with anyone in the real world so I thought it'd be fun to post about here. Feel free to add more!

    - Begone used to only work North and East

    - Spawning mounts underwater and riding across the sea floor was awesome

    - Nexox and Juice wallhacked and ruled over the Center Dungeon

    - Luck could see through blinds somehow

    - Doc made hundreds of thousands off selling people items for real money.

    - You could full heal a red through the towers at sanguine with just 3 blue people.

    - Krisathel was the best place to scam people, with 1 begone you knock them 90 fall damage and into a mob spawn lol

    - Right after the patch that made clans able to piggy back on sieges, cbay got sieged. It was a huge server wide war that was fucking epic.

    - Bugging mobs and macroing was 100% critical to leveling. When bugging out mobs if we got load lag we'd use witches brew to see if we hit an invisible GM in system log

    - Mar Shral duel nights endgame 2012 were dope, lots of fun fights

    - Sword and Shield was 100% ping dependent & used to glitch a ton and wouldn't work half the time.

    - Magnetic Man and itwas Luck had an epic rivalry

    - Jet Boom terrorized noobs 24/7 and late game had fly hacks

    - Kelet (rip <3) was god tier coder and also made some fly hack and gave it to luck on the last day of df1 in 2012, he used a warhulk and flew around with the name 'theflying dutchman' lol

    - A few DF girls nudes leaked and jonah even slept with one lol

    - Beargrim/Gotja were fucking NME noobs who did nothing but zerg 24/7

    - Smurf had a cool 3 phrase name that no one else was able to have. Lord Battle Smurf, too bad when he went to sell his account on Player Auctions he didn't black out the name and it got banned lmao

    - There was no better trio in the game than luck huggies and rex but they all played at least 8+ hours a day

    - There was a huge scandal of someone stealing peoples account info and completely wiping their banks, i think this was 2011 or 2012, super shady shit.

    - All race clans were kinda cool, added a roleplaying element to the game. Battle Saints MVP!

    - Krins Fury, Dartemiss, Dim Mok, Deste Lock were the laughing stock of the df1

    - UDL would roll 20 deep to villages in full Q5 bags and zerg everyone to complete hell and back.

    - Luck introduced a large portion of people to cool music through his vids

    - China farmers were crucial to any big alliance. I remember convincing one of them to come into coms and taught him some english and he'd go out and pvp with us. Semir Fushi I think his name was.

    - Nazrolith was a Sick Bastards nutjob who did nothing but asset damage at 3AM every single night. Probably spent 1000+ hours doing nothing but asset damage.

    - Zag Raid

    - Fizzles were fucking aids, complete RNG mechanic that determined a lot of close fights.

    - Ventrilo / Mumble used to be the standard for comms

    - Having a good keybind setup was crucial, you were at an insane disadvantage if you didn't use AHK scripts

    - Wearing Shoulders made you bunnyhop slower

    - cock lords 2011 and im flower

    - To this day my favorite people to game with are all from DF1, the game created friends for life <3

    There's a lot more but I dont want the first post to take up an entire page so let's keep this going

    8? pfft

    Easily 10+ for Luck and I, Kelet too. Huggies came in much lower at ~6, 'cause he wouldn't solo.

    Most of this time was spent inside geometry watching movies though. We spent almost 0 time practicing lol

    One time Kelet made us sit through this in its entirety:




    I REALLY didn't want to sit through this, but honestly, it turned out to be one of the better movies I've seen lol. On a relative scale, it starts out at a weirdness of about 3/10, it really does get that weird.

    I'm gonna keep posting weird clips of this movie in this thread now.

    - selentine golem on yssam was almost guaranteed fights. Mehatil VS Cbay constantly fought over it, as well as people living out of tolenque.

    - there was at least 1 siege every weekend

    - bunnyhop script was a troll that actually took hold onto some of the dumber players

    - umberto almost scammed someone out of a house (or some other big ticket item), but decided not to

    - center villages always had PVP

    - holdings were actually populated

    - living out of aradoth with vamp, we'd zerg VOTK in robes everytime it went live. Pissed a lot of people off.

    • People glitched inside geometry and killed mobs with their mounts, back when the AI was dog shit
    •Every clan had one person who had ESP
    •Sick Bastards won DF1
    •There was a hacker on cairn that would solo the fire dragon everyday. He would also presurge all of his field aoe attacks and kill giant groups of people, especially those on boats when aoe attacks went through geometry
    •Sethdrone from Blood bought massive amounts of gold to siege and hire mercs
    •Everyone glitched inside of geometry or fell to the bottom of the world to afk macro overnight
    •people had two accounts and a program that would attack and parry to level up skills
    •Blood had the best blood wall
    •all mobs had a leash range that you could stand at and not get attacked by mobs and not have the mob teleport away
    •there was a glitch for awhile where you could leave the bank but still have it open whereever you went
    •people had macros the farm nodes, as you had to manually click each time to get 1 resource
    •you could bug your stamina by riding amount, you could also cast spells while riding your mount
    •before people know how to combat mounts and the mount weight was virtually nothing, people would bring 8+ mounts with them and destroy everyone

    All of Ruby was Alfar Only at EU launch. Dusk Alliance, but there was not the alliance green color yet so we just attacked any and all NonAlfar who came for a visit to our subcontinent. That was fun while it slowly imploded and the remainder merged with Dawn Alliance to form the unfortunately named Twilight Alliance.

    This was just the first of many DFO memorable memories.

    during the first few weeks of EU Launch, we lived out of Aradoth (with The Homeless!). we took about 40 guys and rode north toward where LOD lived and kinda kicked the hornets nest a little.

    About 20 minutes later, LODs alliance rode to aradoth with about 100+ and shit all over the city for 2 hours or so. it was fucking crazy.

    Pretty sure that was Celiah. He found me once in a mountainous region of Yssam, that man always had a ton of mounts on him, it was crazy. :grin:

    Beargrim, you told me it was safe!

    Beargrim, i'm running around in circles!

    HAJAHAHJAJHEHAHAJJAHAHAHA - sacrillegious cackle

    beargrim, val volari, and myself once jumped at the devil and beat the hacker crew (juice nexox ktulu) completely naked because we thought they couldn't see us with their hacks if we were naked. then they trolled us and said they could see beargrims dwarf beard.

    Stop grimtiding me - beargrim

    - Some Kvitstein siege was won because one of the attackers told the defenders where the shard holder was.
    - On that note: Sieges with a shard holder!
    - Arkillion was shard holder for the server Calfardar Siege and somehow disconnected during it. Lots of people thought he did it on purpose for Cairn Alliance.
    - Arkillion had like 8 (?) accounts as he always came back after being banned
    - Some Clans had Razorwax developers in them
    - Presurged Ironskin on a guy in full dragon was a common strategy in sieges
    - Bloodscar & Cbay were the most sought after holdings
    - People had programs that would automatically "macro" spells with anti surges mechanics, auto log off and so on.

    Mag was known as pure pwnage and all he would wear was a purple robe and hit Erinthel 24/7
