Oldbies around? 15+ years?

I wonder…

And, any guild for very old players?
Feeling so out of place :slight_smile:

I recently came back to the game, first started playing around 2002 :slight_smile: Loving it now I am back, just need to find an org!

Very Old as in been playing since 200X or as in ""You young whippersnappers!’? pounds cane on the floor :smiley: …never saw or heard of any org for the over 55 players but generally AO’s pop is pretty welcoming to all.

Well … personally since beta
Guild wise Storm is still around, the first guild in AO, created by a GM as org form wasn’t working.
So there’s that.

Played since launch, with many long breaks along the way

Started on December 2005 … still hanging around!

AO is 18+ years old and more or less looks like it. Most players have been playing for a while or on and off since around release. Welcome back, you just need a org.

Oh, and obligatory: “I ban playin thinth pre-pre-alpha” post.

played back in 2006 was with TRB (The Red Brotherhood) then found Midgar played to 2015 and left for 2-3 years and came back 2 weeks ago) xD

Damn AO still going :wink:

Beta tests, then regular paid account since January 2003 - playing still, but had 2 major breaks (longest was 14 months). Now I am here and enjoyingh the game :slight_smile:

Made my first account in 2006, so I just about hit the mark. Yea, we’re still about, where else are we gonna be?

Since Beta, never moved. :slight_smile:

And founded Athen Paladins in June 2003; we’re still here and rocking. 16 years old org with many old-timers playing as well as new ones (yes there are new players).

Joined 10/2003, paid since 12/2003. Unpaid since 3/18 :frowning:

Same here, 15 years away, used to be Tulak of Elite Operations, now Tulax. Joined True Neutral who are a nice bunch of friendly players with 10 and more toons, so their interests are often a bit different then mine. I have been thinking of finding those like me who are back just for the nostalgia, taking it easy, doing stuff together, even a bit of RP. Send me a tell [anyone] if interested of making a [neut] org, starting from scratch, re-learning and re-discovering stuff and so on. :]

Started in late 2004, tailed off slowly between 2008-2010. Came back full time a couple of months ago.

Disodoctor / Tykki / Spdiso on Rimor, Bug Busters (Omni) and Divine Shadow (Newt).

Very pleasingly two other Bug Busters have re-subbed.

Prejudiced sounds like an old enforcer. I bet that is you. I know this thread was necro’ed but still nice to see old players. I am Herkulease, also played way back as Wantsumore. Today I am on Cosmicmayhem/Toba and a few noobs I usually lvl up and delete just to remake and keep things fun. A lot of people still play, but with the friends list being so… underwhelming it’s hard to keep track of people. I would love Funcom to upgrade the Friends list so an added friend would add ALL of that accounts toons unless it was requested not to as an optional setting. This would help keep the community close together and help retain players long term. Nice to see you again.

Started Jan 2005 RK2, became paid Aug 2005 :slight_smile:

Only time I’ve taken a “long” break was for 2 months in 2011 or 2012, been too long to remember which one it specifically was.

Unfortunately I have rare screenshots from 2005-2007 as I was still thinking screenshot for the game was ‘Prnt Scrn’ as it was in America’s Army. Found out it was F12 in 2007 :frowning:
