Title: Anyone remember Ryuma or YellowPanther?
Post by: Ryuma on June 07, 2017, 01:51:59 PM
Hello, anyone here remember me (Ryuma / Ryumha or YellowPanther when I joined the panthers)?
In the case of Yellow Panther, I joined Pannther Clan right when they started. I played on WON only for about 3 months I think (from the end of 97 to the start of 98), wish I could've played more but my parents got mad because of the phone bills (dial up internet).

If someone remember me will also remember that I was some crazy dude asking to go 2x1, 3x2 etc because I got bored of winning on "equal terms" (I designed a very specific construction / tech order with Plymouth on which I could rush enemies, but of course this didnīt work on all maps). I even remember a Saturday night that some people got mad at me, a "random" brazilian with horrible english wrecking havoc on them, surely he was hacking/cheating... it got to a point they asked a guy using the nickname "PINK FLOYD" or something like that to check my IP to see if I was hacking ROFL(at that time I was dumb with computers, couldnīt even fix my computer if something happened, how in the world I was able to hack in an online game in that time is beyond my comprehension).

The other people that I remember, aside from the "PINKFLOYD" the hacker detector, are some of the early Panthers (Red, Cyan or Blue, Green maybe?) I think I only picked Yellow because all the cool "manly" colors got picked before and only Yellow was left. As far as I remember, the initial idea of the Panthers was to mimick Power Rangers and the like, using the colors we could choose from the multiplayer. I don't think someone picked magenta lol but maybe if the clan got a girl. I also remember a guy named "colossus" (he was the only one who could beat me on rush matches so I never forgot his nickname). There was also a "Worg" or "Worf" or something that could rival me too, but I only played 1 or 2 matches against or with him I think.

I will try to check on weekends on IRC to see if I can get some game, but this time on equal terms lol.

Can't say that I do; don't remember too many people from WON.  But someone around here might.  Regardless, welcome aboard.

I remember the Panther clan.

Their website actually still exists: http://panther_clan.tripod.com/index2.html

Welcome to Outpost Universe. Some of the players here are extremely good, so you can certainly find a challenge.

We have published custom multiplayer and single player scenarios that you can try out as well.

I still remember dial-up fondly. Picking up the phone to make a call and hearing the ridiculous crackling sound and know that I just kicked a family member off the internet.

Oh no, 90's web design strikes back!

WON was before my time, I'm afraid.

Hey Ryuma - Welcome to the forums!

I think I remember your name, but seeing from the timeline, that might be from you being listed on the Pather Clan website.
Cyan Panther visited these forums at some point - as well as other Panthers.

I don't think many players like the Rushing games anymore, but the technique has probably been perfected by now - you can try your luck against Leviathan, he used to be one of the 2 fastest players at this (I'd say).

Hope to see you around!
