Not sure why this ancient piece of garbage was sent in, but I'm guessing someone thought it was funny.

Let me break it down for ya.

At the start, Rick (Crippler) and BF start bitching. Actually Rick is sorta interested in winning the game, but doesn't want to help his ally at first. Because BF is being an asshole. They keep bitching while the Rawdawgs keep quiet and play, and gets ahead. When Rick starts to focus on winning the game, BF decides to keep being an asshole and ruins every chance of having an actual game. Then there's that com rush that was popular back then, D-gun opponent and give stuff to ally.

Sounds like a fucking TV soap doesn't it? I'll get back to that.

Rick is left with FU. He D-guns FU's island, chase him away and it's pretty much a 1v1 from that point.

Typical old school TA, little slower, less effective, bad building and UC compared to 2008 and so, on. And on top of that, the game is a failed team game to begin with.

Some people find this hilarious, I'm well aware of that. To me, this is what ruined TA.

See once upon a time, everyone were sorta united by the common interest in the game. Main focus was playing TA, and figuring out stuff like how to beat the rush or master the Sumo creep. Silly, yes, but at least people came to Mplayer/Zone to actually play. There was a reason they didn't join some other game lobby instead. Of course the players were being cocky, talked trash and all that. But it was still a matter of winning games, playing TA.

Then, people started to care more about their social status in a tiny community, and showing off the size of your internet cock was more important then anything. Hence the Age Of Assholes began. The actual game was suddenly an innocent bystander to the Total Annihilation Tele Novela between people living half a planet from each other. Fucking pathetic.

Why even bother with a game if you'r actually into picking internet fights and being a keyboard warrior? There are about a billion chat rooms made for that. I just don't get it. And while I am older then most of you guys, I fail to see how this shit can be fun for anyone above the age of 14.


Rant, rant. Guess I went off topic there. Maybe the guy who uploaded this just thought it was a great old school game. It really wasn't.
