Congrats on the 2 years everyone.
There have certainly been some highs and some lows in the 2 year period.
It doesn't seem that long ago that I got recruited by JJ fresh out of ESD. He contacted me in-game only seconds after my first toon stepped out into the big universe. He then took me under his wing for a few months and taught me quite a lot.
In those days there was probably only 20 or 30 of us and I remember very well when we started the recruiting drive. We discussed at what point we should stop recruiting. 50, 100, 150....... This was prior to F2P and prior to the relentless grind that the game has now become. People played the game mostly for the story missions and people like me looked up in awe at a fleet with the Admirals of the time and wondered if it would take forever for me to make Admiral.
They were good times.
Also at that time, as is the case now I guess, the majority played Fed side with one standout exception. Doull. I ventured in to space one night for a PVP with Doull, JJ, and Jirk. I lasted probably about 2.3 nanoseconds before I got blasted. I quickly learned that there was a lot more to the game than I thought.
A big "THANK YOU" to all of those that have assisted in making my game-play enjoyable over the last 2 years. There are too many to list here but you know who you are I'm sure.
'Let the good times roll'.
Feel free to wear out your 'Fireworks' ability today if you have them.
Happy birthday to all.
