Old school players nostalgia thread


It’s been about 14-15 years since I stopped playing this game, and I seem to come back and check on the game’s status every now and then for nostalgias sake.

I’m making this thread for oldschool players like me to show appreciation to the people we got to know and to remember the good old times, feel free to add names of people you miss, remember, hated or w/e.

For those of you who remember me, I used to play a keeper called Edis. On RK2 I was “neutral”, even though I sided with omni. I loved to PVP and probably spent most of my ingame time doing just that.

I want to give a shout out to the players I remember from back then who I used to play with and who made the game fun for me. Both in PVP and PVM. You might notice that this list is only from RK2, but thats because I stopped playing before the servers were merged.

Onlyman - The agent that loved to pvp, but pretty much never showed up when there was some to be had. :smile:
Aratink - The funny fixer. Always had some witty remark and buffs ready for you. <3
Ivort - The neutral agent that thought me most of the game in the beginning.
Joakimwalker - Neutral advy. I still keep in touch with that guy. Funny guy.
Eevatytar - The only keeper I remember that consistently and annoyingly outdps’d me, be it in a beast raid, alien sectors or w/e.
Equobar - Was always in on going to OA to see if we could find someone flagged that we could kill
Dizzzz - Neutral crat. Died from cancer to young, RIP. Made some insane twinks back in the day
Brucelee2003 - Clan MA, was always doing towers for clans. Seemed to always show up when something was going on.
Toxicmen - Insanely knowledgeable player. Also excelent at pvp.
Shahiz - Excelent ganker. Never managed to get me down alone on a solo gank, though. :wink:

There are so many more, but I can’t seem to remember right now. Thanks for the fun times!

So many more that deserve mention. But wife is sleeping right behind me, need to be quiet. 8p

If I did not mention you it’s not because I forgot. It’s just there are literally hundreds of names I could burp out most of which I had positive experiences with.

Wish you all the best.
Hoping for an AO2.
If not…
See you all in the afterlife.
Have a good day. 8p


I revisit these forums every couple of years and threads like this bring back so many memories.

I love your list, so many names that just bring me back 20 years!

I quit sometime in 2004 or 2005…and I’ve played countless games, but none of them had the same impact.

If I had to make a list of players…and I dont know how the hell I remember these names still, but it goes to show how much of an impact this game had on me growing up!

Im sure I missed so many more names

My closest AO ganking friends:


Orgmates and PvP rivals:


And ofcourse my characters

Memorable Orgs:

Forsaken (my org - I forgot do many names… )
Mercenaries of Kai
Black Dawn Syndicate
Midnight Reveries
Sentinels (I joined this org when I was 16 years old lol)
Synergy Factor

Hello there ! I was lurking around after finding an old installation of AO on my HDD. I’ve been active back in 2005 on RK1 and TestServer, and as Bureaucrat Professional for a while.
My known characters were:

  • Malaxia, Bureaucrat, master of soloing & charming
  • Telbewbs, the sexy doc
  • Telbruk, soldier
  • Sumonia, biomare mp twink

I was president of Cosmic Forklift Inc, a friendly Omni org.

Some of us never really left and are still here.
I remember so many of the names mentioned in previous posts; and the names of people posting them.
So many characters and personalities over the years, but none like the old days, it really was the wild west and we may never see days like that again.


And here is me. best lame at evrything.

It’s been a while since i’ve left AO, but all those emotions are still hot. Unfortunately, I cannot reactivate my accounts because payments from my country are completely unavailable. Is there anyone from RK2 2005-2010ish times still here? Dark Front | Inner Circle fellows and other PVP addicts from both sides?

Not playing but hello from your favourite pvp shit talker. Hope you’re well Arty :slight_smile: and hullo to any of the other OG’s from RK2 prime time. We didn’t know what we had <3

I remember you Arty, and also Intake from various PvM and PvP encounters. And from the old forums. :slightly_smiling_face: Those were simpler times, wish we could go back. Anyways, I hope y’all are doing okay.


On RK3 the members on iNFLICT were infamous.

Also Reids for lowbie PVP twinks and the agent who came up with the idea to hotswap to Piercing Evil for a mean alpha back in the day when there were no duels and you could just sneakgank people w total concentration activated. I forgot his name though.

I still remember guy named Roedran (clan soldier) that was very god guy and well stuited char that was helping me with first twinks.

Andersman. Most hated player in this game. I really, really wanted him to go away. Then I learned tweaking and PVP and destroyed him so many times :smiley:

Zebraman. Legendary 200 doc with zebra print suit that was owning Tir Arena :stuck_out_tongue:

Bishlap, the 110 MP that caused me headache and took me several months to stand a twink vs him.

And many, many others.

But there are still decent players active since years.

Long live AO!

Rk2 was something else, nothing but good memories with “The Untouchables” folks.

Fastshoter here.
Was in Equilibrium for a long time and did a bunch of Pvp.

The people I liked is too many to list… What a wonderful game it was, and how much I miss it.

Yes, Arty, I remember you. Those were the main years I played. I was a member of Core. My main was Liamboru, but had one of of about every prof.

Core took part in PvP, but we were far from a PvP based org. I could hop over to Auno (if that even exists these days) and pull up some names. For now Candle645 and Llowleme might be names you recall.

Ahh good times rolling around on rk2, between DF crew, the Borealis squad, the hunting, banter and stuff.

Amazing times, shout out to the crew.

Waves to Cake, Arty and Edis.
