In the beginning, There was only me. Howler, or humorcafe.com, JestaFreak, or Da*Freak as I am now known in the Quake arena.
What follows is a tale of a few good men, and 1 cool chick, with one fatal addiction. The driving need to reduce someone to tiny chunks of meat. And eat those same chunks. They're Gibbylicious!!
Back in the early dayz the Original Gangstas, comprised a list of three. That Being myself, CDTrips, and Spooge. We used to run around long forgotten servers from the Gamespy list, crying out for our respective mothers as we were schooled in Quake 1, 101.
Shortly after the release of Quake 2 (we love you id), Clan [3OD] was formed, the name originally stood for 3oddballz.com which was the first domain name we bought for this mother (of a) website now known as The Humor Cafe.
As a Clan, we started back then with Q2, playing all weapons with hook, Lithium Deathmatch. We did play non-hook games as well but the desire to swing around like spider-man won out with all of us.
We kept our Clan ranked pretty high in Sconfig Mod in the CLQ. But Sconfig kind of died out and then we went strictly Lithium. FUN! FUN! FUN!
Then Came The New Breed
<- gLu ->
Tstorm, now known as Z[3OD] and I were the only ones who still played much and we were still haunting Q2 Lithium servers. Q3 had been out for a minute but neither of us had bought it, having played the demo. No Grapple!! No Fun!!!!
Z and I, first met Cap*n at work. Cap*n was the first person We ever met outside of our clan who loved to Frag as much as I did. Cap*n was a balls to the wall Q3 junkie. Rails Only Capture The Flag. Z wasn't bad with a rail but It wasn't my weapon of choice. And neither of us had had played much in the way of CTF.
Me and Z, already worked with Milan before Cap*n started and I had known him for about a year by then (He sings like an angel, an angel I tell ya.). So Cap*n is always harpin on me to get Q3, and I am always tellin him to install Q2. We are trading Frag stories all the time and Milan gets interested. Milan had never played Quake before. So Cap*n burns us, I mean, we all went out and bought Quake 3.
Then came Mihesauh. He started around the same time that Cap*n did, and he was every bit the gaming aficionado as any of us. For the next few months we gamed almost every night. Cap*n, Z and Mihesauh, all had cable connections while me and Milan had dial up. Milan got cable soon after but it was to be a while before it came to my area. We played Deathmatch style no holds barred. Sometimes all weapons, some times rail only and sometimes we even played with hook. There were a couple of other guys from work who jumped in there but they couldn't cut the cheese with a hot knife, let alone the proverbial mustard.
Throughout the Hiztory of 3OD we have never actually played as a team. We started using the Clan Tag to track stats on the CLQ, back when we were playing Q2. We always fought each other with the same vehemence we showed to others.
It was Cap*n again who finally talked us in to playing Capture The Flag. After a few weeks playing head to head amongst ourselves Cap*n finds this IP address to a really cool CTF server. Storms Rails Only Instagib. And we have been fought there for a long time.
We added Liam to the line up shortly after. Liam, long time friend used to tell us all how we were a bunch of geeks for getting so involved in a little game. We introduced Liam to what we like to call the quake pipe, and he has been a strung out junkie ever since.
Right about then we decided a new clan tag would better represent the new and improved Clan. After a brief stint as the Odd Ball Killin Qrew [OBKQ]
|Cdtrips, and afterbirth both periodically played on my PC. Afterbirth made it back to the new clan in december of 2K1 when he got him his own computer. He now plays from Philly. Mihesauh moved back to oklahoma and we are waiting on his return. Spooge still doesn't have much time to play. We are anxiously awaiting the return of CDTrips to our active roster.|
