    There have been a few threads created recently regarding how the servers/PR used to be, how good it was
    and how we can entice some of the old regs back to the servers. Was 0.75 really a turning point for good or
    bad? Time to step up and prove the point :p

    An idea for a community night I've been playing around with over the last few weeks/months is as follows;

    Anyone who joined PR community at BigD (the BigD forums as a gauge of date) by version 0.75's end is on one team, everyone post 0.80
    on the other. The hope is that being on a team consisting of only players from their era, a few of the old guns
    would be enticed back onto the servers after showing all the young-ins how it should be done :p

    This is primarily to gauge interest before anything is set in stone, but I would say the maps to be played
    would be Qwai, Jabal and one other when I can remember one suitable. These are maps that have stood the
    test of time and have made it through multiple releases without being culled or added in at a later date.

    The date listed in the quote below was the release date for PR 0.80 so members who joined the forums
    prior to this date will be Old Guns, anyone after this date will be Young-ins. Simple.

    Rules would be simple - win at all costs keeping in mind the standard of play expected on the servers at
    all times, particularly at community events.

    Would appreciate any feedback/ideas anyone has regarding this.

    Cheers
    Nuf

    If we can get the numbers I would be very keen, like others have said, it would involve a lot of effort, but if the numbers are there it would be worth it.
    I just realised I'm considered a youngin'.....But....But.....I dun' wanna' be!!

    I'd be keen, but not on god damned qwai! 2 world cups of that garbage in a row is enough. I'd sleep happily if I knew I didn't ever have to play as chinese in a bf2 game ever again.

    How 'bout we have the match on an insurgency map ;)

    i was in and out since 0.4 , only really settled into PR since 0.8

    where does that put me ? :p

    i think PR forum accounts only really matter to determine old timer or newbie IMO ( since 2006 :p )

    Kashan is 90% of what is wrong with PR imo.

    Too many assets
    Infantry not rewarding enough


    The day I never have to play that map again I'll do a pants down happy dance.

    Search members list by date. I'm on the first page with more than a few other old hands who are still playing on and off I think it was 0.35 or something like that. PR was still called a minimod back then.

    end of 0.6x to 0.7 was when I came by. Started on an American server =BW= under an alias that only pmd knows ;)

    Moved on since then and found this place, and it's been home sweet home ever since :)

    Bukkee_Barbie* taught me this game in 2007, one of the best medics you will never see. Version differentiation is not something I consider.

    All I can say is I really mean to donate more to these forums and servers.

    Thank you.

    I love you more than this other dtacs run server that has started up. Amateurs.

    The only maps I can think of that have been around since at least 0.7 are:

    Al Basrah
    Fools Road
    Jabal (would be great to be able to set the AAS cap order for East beach, South Bridge, Dam and Jabal set.)
    Kashan
    Qinling (probably not worth mentioning as no-one else likes this map)
    Qwai

    If anyone can think of any others please bring them to my attention.
