#706871 We all have fun, why must we be bitter?

Posted by LeftMouseShoot? on 05 February 2017 - 10:59 AM

Im not entirely sure how long I have played here, I know I didn't have kids when I first started. We are all players here, countless hours of our lives we have chosen to play here. The Core has put in their time day in day out. When one has to take a break, others step up and continue it. Moongamers has done so much to keep this game, this community alive, it is sad to see how people take it for granted. It is extremely sad to see people who bitch that they don't like the way the server is watched over. Even though those same people pay for you to play here more often then not. It is depressing that people can so quickly become bitter when things don't go their way(don't worry I get upset too on occasion boo hoo for me). When people take for granted, the place they come to play, the TS** they are allowed to utilize to insult and completely be ignorant to the people who continue to keep this community afloat. I have choice words for you. Im 29 years old. I come here to relax and have fun, what about you? You might not completely agree with every little decision that is made, but you never take into account how many times things go your way. If you've played here as long as the Core, then you are an adult by now. You should know right from wrong, and know the server rules. It has been that long that you have seen people go down in flames for going against them. We have been here long enough to act like adults, and not have our friends cause a disturbance, long enough to know where to go when something happens to us in game. Start playing the game like we used too. Start remembering that without the Core, you would be playing with Bots, or 50 children who would rather constantly tk their teammates. Remember that when the weekend comes around you and your friends can jump into Moons TS and play together and chat together. Its a privilege to be a part of this community. Remember that. None of this was easy or free for the founders. They are still here, we are still here. Have fun.

#708501 Please use your brains. Thanks in advance.

It's pretty frustrating to see how the same players keep on killing the server population with the same stuff : baserape on low pop.


I guess that almost every player prefers a 15 vs 15 or even more over a 4 vs 4.


How can we build some population when there are 3 tanks and 2 planes raping the enemy main with a server population of 6 vs 6 ? Who likes to stay in the server when there is no other place to spawn and 5 enemy vehicles are killing you constantly 1 second after spawning ? Do you really need to get an ego boost by raping mains ? It's a damn game, why turn it into a beatdown which kills it ?


Almost everytime I join the server on low pop, I have to tag up and enforce the anti-camping rule. Would be quite nice if I wouldn't have to do that, would be nice if more players simply would show a tiny little bit of common sense once in a while. That's not too much asked.


Why do I even have to make that post, is it too hard for some to realize or do you simply do not care ? Are you realizing that your "style" of "gameplay" is killing the place you like to play on ?


And please don't come at me with statements like "Brunn with a medic gun is killing the pop" or "that invincible pilot is killing the fun". It's not the better players fault that others are not as good. No one is unbeatable. If you are getting killed by a player who is better / by a stronger vehicle on the "normal" battlefield (the areas outside of the mains), cope with it. That's the damn game. But sitting behind a spawn point in main with two tanks on a 5 vs 5 round gives you easy kills, but kills the server pop and keeps your skill level where it's atm. Go fight for flags but let the players have a chance to reach the battlefield. And raping mains (killing players with superior weapons 1 second after spawning) is not "payback", it's just cheap and simply cancerous for our server.


Same counts for the more skilled players on maps which can get capped out. Of course you can cap out Caen, Wake or Tobruk in 5 minutes, but every damn quick mapchange lowers the server population (again, is that so hard to realize?). Maybe it gives you an ego boost if you end the map quickly, but for the whole situation, it's the opposite of helpful.


I've said that a thousand times in the server, but mostly those braindead "lol"s are the only thing which comes back. A lot of players just do the opposite of what I say and laugh about it, somehow a very childlike reaction (don't know the psychological term). So before you post an answer or keep on doing the same shit on the server like you usually do, please switch your brain on, just for a second or two.


Would be nice if some people would understand my point. If not, enjoy your 6 vs 6 on primetime.

Max has made a cameo appearance to see if the hip will take sitting for a long period of time. It felt pretty good without pain, so maybe I can get back and play like before. Thanks for the well wishes, getting old makes for a slow recovery, OH WELL THAT'S LIFE. :reap:  Not dead yet.

#705490 Admin Recognition

Posted by Lin on 09 November 2016 - 10:04 PM

Thank you to the admin who has sacrificed his time consistently every Sunday for the last several years to host the expansion maps.

Thank you to the admin who backs up the server files in case of server failure.

Thank you to the admin who watches the server for idlers.

Thank you to the admin who babysits the server for days on end when we're being attacked, watching for and blocking the attackers.

Thank you to the admin who has worked on the server to add more toys for the boys.


If you know who this is, don't spoil it. Let the players try to take guesses. ;)

#717174 My Normandy Visit in 2011

Posted by Wasabi® on 26 January 2020 - 11:37 PM

Link to pictures at the end. I couldn't find my old topic with all the photos in it, I think it got archived.  


This might be of interest to you WW2 buffs. In 2011, when I was in London for job training I took a weekend trip to France and arranged a private tour of the WW2 Memorial at Caen, Pointe du Hoc, Omaha Beach, and the American Cemetery. 


I wanted to go back last year for the 75th anniversary of D-Day, but alas, it didn't happen. This year is the 75th anniversary of the end of WW2 so I may head back there if time permits. 


The photos were taken with a crappy camera (worse than the selfie cam on a modern iPhone) so they aren't the best quality. 


The start is the Caen memorial (inside is a museum) and the remains of the artificial harbor used by the Allies to unload troops off the beach at Arromanches. There were some remains of old cannon batteries here also. 


The next part is the Normandy American Cemetery. This is a very haunting place, you can feel it in the air.


A few MG42 nests and a Sherman tank follow. 


Omaha Beach is next, there were quite a few MG nests and fortified structures like bunkers still remaining. 


The final part was Pointe du Hoc, which is still full of bomb craters. There are some bunkers still standing here too.

#704658 BS !!!!!!!!11!11!11!eleven

Posted by Angerfist on 08 October 2016 - 09:19 AM

Getting tired of the constant direct and indirect accusations. How come that people who play this since 10 years still don't get the physics of this game ?


"Smells hacky in here"


Last week, I had to bail out of my tank while fighting for a flag. A guy came around the corner, so I switched to pistol. He switched to expack (when did "switch to pistol" in close combat turned to "switch to nades / expacks" ???). I was able to shoot 4 bullets into his face before he could throw his lamepack. His comment : "It smells hacky in here". A big surprise that shooting 4 bullets is quicker than expacking. Thank god I have the quick pistol shoot hack. I don't. Just in case some brainiac doesn't get the joke. 


"How did you know I was there ?"


Maybe I simply saw you. Maybe you were too close to the wall, so your name tag was visible. Maybe I saw you earlier, but didn't attack you instantly. Maybe a teammate told me in gamechat or in Teamspeak. Maybe I simply didn't know that you were there, but I simply put a shell there because that's a common spot you were hiding in. In other words, there is a big chance that someone is in that certain spot. No magic involved. A skilled pilot uses the minimap and the different views constantly. They see a lot from up there, and, believe it or not, a lot of moves are very predictable. :afro:


One shot ? I had full health / my tank was at 100 %


Yes. One shot can be enough. One hit with the knife, one single headshot, one treadshot / shot in the back or side of a tank ----> boom. Dead. One shot. No magic involved. While tanking, you rarely can be sure that it was just one guy shooting at you. There can always be a second guy nading or shooting at you from another side too.


I shot a whole clip into him and nothing !!!


Very old game + huge ping differences. Spray and pray doesn't work that well. It's that simple. Hearing guys with low ping whining this way makes me laugh. If it happens to you with a 50 ping, imagine how it is with a 130 ping. 


He hit me while I was in the bunker !!!


A skilled pilot or a skilled tanker will bomb / shoot through the door or the other open areas. Period.


Right, killing a plane with a RIFLE !!!


When the damn plane is already damaged hard, you can finish it off with a bullet. If your K98 was the last weapon which hit the plane (aka taking away the last third of a bar), you will get the kill.


BSing after nading / expacking your feet, killing yourself but not the enemy


Seriously ? I mean you just threw explosives at your feet, don't be surprised when you kill yourself. If your enemy moves in a clever way, he'll get less damage than you. You just threw explosives at your own feet. Surprise, it hurts. Try the pistol. :smiley_369:


That sniper / pilot / whatever is BS! (quote from last night)


Why, because he is better than you ? "Nobody can be that good" ? How do you know that ? Please explain it to me. :confused-smiley-013:


"Now I know why I'm not good here. It's because of all the cheaters." (direct quote from last night)


In case you aren't just a random troll : maybe you're not good here because you simply aren't that good. Get good.  :wasnt-me:


It's no shame that others might be better than you. But that constant BS ! talk is. Keep in mind that people change their names. So, just because you don't know the player name, it doesn't mean that this guy is hacking. It's very often simply a known player using a different name.


And in general : the most hackers (over 90 % if I have to estimate) who get caught by us are not getting good kdrs and usually do not have any significant impact on how the round ends. Believe it or not.

#719487 Making friends and clearing the air

Posted by PitViper on 25 August 2020 - 02:39 PM



What it means in a nutshell is, the days where you could play either server against one another and/or think you can run the narrative on either...are over.


TGE| will support MoonGamers in most every way possible, including much of what Wasabi and Lin said, in addition, both servers will progress in directions thought highly unlikely in the recent past.  This is mainly due to some people in this world that think they have the power over others fun and can dictate what and where that can happen.  We have banded together in an old school type way that can't be broken by anyone except the owners.  This relationship will improve all the Admins and players of both servers.


Healthy competition and freely playing on any "friendly" server, respecting the rules and Admins while all participating in the passion we have for BF1942.

These are the ways of the past...and the future.


We all have the same goals and desires...to play and have fun with family and friends.  Anyone that thinks they can sabotage those goals has severely underestimated these two servers and their owners resolve.  If you are a negative or naysayer...welp,. you can always play checkers.

#710240 A History of Moon

Posted by Enforcer on 10 December 2017 - 01:57 AM



I gotta say, moving on into this new year and through this holiday season, I am so very pleased and humbled by this community.  I was told here recently that someone had posted something negatively about me in the forums.  I responded to the person that told me this, that I had not visited the forums in a very long time.  In fact, I did not even see the negative comment before an admin had hidden it.  I guess that does show the respect of the admin team for me and my role in the history of Moongamers.  So, I decided to come on back, try and remember my password (which I did after several failed attempts), and take a look around. 


Like your elementary school if you ever go back, it seems a bit smaller.  I remember a time when, man, there were hundreds of posts a day it seems.  Why do we have so many categories of forum stuff...well, there was a time when we needed that many categories, and believe me, I fought against every one of them, ask Lin.  Just too complicated I said.  Just too many places for a "founder" to visit.   The number of postings is down.  The number of people probably visiting the site is down.  The number of overall servers is down.  But, the spirit of what it means to be a Moongamer is still very much alive.


I saw that post where Lin was asking for donations as we had less than two hundred dollars in the paypal account to pay for stuff.  And then, all of a sudden, we have just short of eight hundred.  Well, that was great and it paid the bills for that month, but, remember, each month starts anew.  But, for people to come out of the woodwork and send in their hard earned cash, still to this day amazes me.  I mean, I sent in all those times because as a founder of the community, I felt I was obligated to.  If I did not, how could I ask anyone else to put in their money?  And again, some 14 years later, Lin asked and Moongamers received.  Just amazing.


So, I wanted to come on the forums and wish everyone all the best.  We, at Moongamers, have been in the business of offering computer online gaming since February 2004.  We have seen many ups and downs.  We have made friends and lost them.  Some have come, and some have gone.  There are people on these forums, that were young teenagers when they first found Moon and were probably a pain in the ass.  And now they are college educated, young adults, married with a kid and making it on their own.  And to think, we may have had a hand in "how" they were raised.  Not so much the rules of the house, so to speak, but, social interactions.  What is expected?  What is fairplay?  How should you conduct yourself in public.  What is acceptable and what is not?  And over the years the admin team here, were not afraid of calling it what it is, and taking the appropriate action.  Sometimes, that action was harsh and thought to be too much, sometimes it was not enough, but, considering we are all just a bunch of yahoos that like to game, and thought we could offer a good experience, I think we did a pretty decent job of it.


It was a stressful time, back in February 2004.  I can say, honestly, I lost sleep over what I was doing with the Core group and the others that made this leap of faith with me.  I look back on it and wonder if it was all worth it.  I have played so many games with Moongamers, there are just too many to mention.  So many nights..so many hours...  So, was it worth it?  Yea..I think it was.  I think we did a good thing here at Moongamers and have been for almost 14 years.  I could not have not done it without my partners, Dan and Lin.  Without you guys, this would not have been.  You don't see Dan around much anymore, but, he was integral in keeping this place going in the early years.  And Lin..what needs to be said.  She has been the face of Moongamers since its inception and continues to work tirelessly to keep Moongamers going.


For me, I am around still, here and there, most often in the Admiral's channel in teamspeak.  So, poke me if you want..just to say hello.  But, feeling a bit nostalgic and all..I just wanted to come back in and say,


Thanks.  Thanks for making Moongamers what it is.  A damn fine gaming community to belong to.  I am so very proud of what was accomplished such a long time ago.

#721170 To our Donors

Posted by Lin on 10 September 2021 - 08:12 PM

Thank you will never be enough.


When there is more time, we will post an accounting so you all know where the money goes. All of the donations, 100% of them, go to server operations. There are no salaries here. We want you to see where the money is going.


Ideally, our goal right now is to establish an approximate $1000 "reserve", like a savings account, for the server. That will likely happen very slowly, but we need the reserve so that we are not scraping the bottom of the barrel each month and hoping the bills get paid. Keeping a reserve means we have one less thing to worry about, and can concentrate more on keeping the maps fresh, listening to the players, and managing the server. Right now, our goal incorporates a little extra in order to build that reserve up so that we do not have to panic each month, and so that the checking account we keep per Paypal requirements won't keep going into the red. Overdraft fees are not cheap.


Again, in case we haven't said it enough...thank you. You are the reason we can continue to offer BF1942 for everyone.

#719438 Making friends and clearing the air

Posted by Lin on 23 August 2020 - 12:50 PM

Recent events have once again caused server owners and managers to come together in discussion. One of those discussions have led to a friendship between MoonGamers and TGE.
Wasabi and I met with PitViper and MArco recently. The end result of that meeting was that we have gotten past old rumors and have formed a server friendship with TGE. 
There are some differences between our servers. We have a family friendly format, while TGE is more of an 18+ atmosphere. However, we both strongly discourage any players talking crap about other servers so please play with courtesy, check out the rules of any server you play on, and act accordingly. 
Any TGE member not able to play here is welcome to post, let us know your issue, and we will address it. Any Moon member may do the same at TGE. 
We also look forward to holding future events such as scrims with them, so keep building your infantry skills, sharpen those knives, and watch for future announcements!

Hope the music works okay.  I kinda just shoved the three songs in - the lyrics to the first two songs seemed vaguely relevant.  
Probably best to view it in 1080p.
