Tour 11 here, at least that's the first one I can find an earlier ID of mine on.

But I'm a die hard.  I'm still betting the majority don't go back that far.

I tried my hand at Red Baron when it was a DOS game, 1st try of AW was in I think 93, I could not afford it due to being maried, having 2 very young daughters, and 1 income......came back to AW in 94, came back to AW fulltime in 95..and stayed.......then 1999 I infrequently played around with Aces High...think me along with most of the Damned came in or near end of 2000/early2001......( although NB, Lonz and a few other Damned prob alphaed long before that )

during the AW3 & AW3 millienium version I was also in Fighter Ace, Warbirds.......most of the "longtimers" before me could prob say they have tried every sim ever to be multiplay online.....

others I have played are targetware TK/TR (am still CO of our squad there), Jane's multitude of different game genres, wwiionline, IL2, crimson skys.............etc.......

I remember first time I saw Tiff flying, and was thinking I was flying around with a girl, until he informed me otherwise, it was in one of the relaxed realism arenas...... remeber calling CH Products because one of my sticks was acting up, and was 1st time I meet Ack-Ack ( well  met over the phone ), think that was late 95/early 96.......

seen alot come and go, also have seen alot of our friends get their heavenly wings......  1 thing about the WW1/WW2 online gaming communitys is the closeness and the me it is far more than anything you would find in most other multyplayer online games.......

"When one considers just what they should say to a new pilot who is logging in Aces High, the mind becomes confused in the complex maze of info it is necessary for the new player to know. All of it is important; most of it vital; and all of it just too much for one brain to absorb in 1-2 lessons" TC

started out in the aw days using handle  OUTLAW   changed name to MOTBD  and was flying when they pulled the plug on it. Squad "THE MOTLEY ACES"  scattered and a few months later most of us ended up here at htc.  

been off and on since then.

Great part is most of old squadies r still flying and most r in "DAMAGE INC."
and the rest scattered in various other squads.
