IRC What did I miss
15:25:30 Jul 6th 10 - Mr. Ashzala:

Hello there! Perhaps some of you recognize me, but im sure most of you don't!


Anyway, I've been around the VU irc now and then. Decided to join once again today and I noticed... It's almost empty! What happend?


15:31:13 Jul 6th 10 - Sir Butters:

Everyone realized IRC was a technology outdated in the early 90s


15:58:12 Jul 6th 10 - Mr. Petite Penois:

In most games that don't facilitate ingame talking, IRC is still the predominant p2p chat. You'll find huge communities on other servers, i.e for starcraft, counterstrike, etc or shitty games like runescape.

Vets have mostly left VU, particularily the KDs that were based there (like LGC), hence no need to stay. And since there are none about to teach the scrubs and nubs how to use it (plus the 14 y olds fascination with IMAGESLOL), they've gone to intellectually inferior progs.

In terms of gaming communities, IRC is way ahead and has been for some time, it's still the prog of choice and I still have use for it on other servers. VU's vets have failed to pass the baton on though, and there does seem to be an influx of stupidity in VU these days. And unfortunately for them, IRC requires basic knowledge to run.


16:06:22 Jul 6th 10 - Mr. Petite Penois:

Regarding the 90s comment. In terms of functionality, IRC still provides everything required.  Chat, voice chat, webcam interaction, file transfers, private rooms, etc. But it requires effort and intelligence. Something VU sorely lacks.


16:11:13 Jul 6th 10 - Mr. Ashzala:

I do use irc, all the time, 24/7 in fact :). I have just not been idling in the VU chan that much because I havent played in a long time. However last time I was there, like 6 months ago, the vets from years and years back were still there. And now, there is NO ONE :o. I was shocked. Hopefully a few are still idling around there, and I just chose a bad time to log-on... But somehow I doubt that.


Oh well...

Edit: One more thing. The VU irc aint really promoted anywhere on the site. If that was to change maybe it would help, somewhat :).


There is a chat button, but for those of us who'd like to use a stand-alone client there aint any clearly visable instructions on what network it is, nor what chan.


16:14:06 Jul 6th 10 - Mr. Vuggy The Annoying Bastard:

Skype is bettar!


16:14:53 Jul 6th 10 - Mr. Ashzala:

Erh. Using skype instead of irc? Yea right :p


16:21:05 Jul 6th 10 - Mr. Petite Penois:

Well ZeTa did used to promote the VU channel on here. But because he had no control over it, he wasn't happy.And so he removed the link and made his own shoddy replica of it. lol.


Skype is the choice of 16 year olds prepubecents (and I can understand why, if you gave a little kid a choice between the two). Smart peoples still go with IRC.


17:04:06 Jul 6th 10 - Mr. Arthur Zonds Fav:

"Skype is the choice of 16 year olds prepubecents (and I can understand why, if you gave a little kid a choice between the two). Lonely peoples still go with IRC."

Fixed it up for you.  Whether IRC is better than Skype or not, more people use Skype so if you just love IRC and can't possibly convert to Skype then good luck being lonely in that part of your life :P


17:10:30 Jul 6th 10 - Mr. Petite Penois:

More people on VU use Skype than IRC*


Fixed it for you. As I said before, in larger gaming communities IRC has and maintains its position as the p2p chat. And seeing as I don't play VU anymore, I can't say it affects me.


17:51:02 Jul 6th 10 - Mr. Vuggy The Annoying Bastard:

Good thing most people hit puberty at 13 or 14... because if they didn't your statement would be very valid  Petite.


17:51:48 Jul 6th 10 - Mr. Vuggy The Annoying Bastard:

And besides.. this is a strategy game. How freaking nerdy can you get by needing to voice chat over it like it's some tense first person shooter or something like that? Lol.

But not all.


18:38:02 Jul 6th 10 - Mr. Petite Penois:

I can tell IRC isn't suited for you Vuggy by your previous forum posts.


Your stupidity almost parallels that of Bran.


00:38:47 Jul 7th 10 - Mr. Vuggy The Annoying Bastard:

I disagree. It's not stupidity that compels me, but ignorance. 


01:21:57 Jul 7th 10 - Mr. Petite Penois:

No no, you're stupid. One of the new breed of VU'ers. Scrub-nubs who feel compelled to share their inane opinions.

Do something more productive and relative to your skills. Like flipping burgers.


02:10:38 Jul 7th 10 - Mr. Vuggy The Annoying Bastard:

How is that relevant to my skills? And this IS an INTERNET page. So it gives me a right to be whatever I feel like.. an E-thug at times, annoying most of the other times, and times like now where I just say something that sounds smart so you'll shut up.. which really never works.. (reason I do it. I love starting flamers up)


04:51:30 Jul 7th 10 - Dr. Evil Smevil:

Vuggy your not ignorant.  Your an annoying bastard remember.  :P


05:13:06 Jul 7th 10 - Mr. Vuggy The Annoying Bastard:

Oh man I forgot... xD


05:49:51 Jul 7th 10 - Ice Prince Zephyr:

lol Skype for the win!

Someone should create a VU room in Skype.


12:49:36 Jul 7th 10 - Mr. Vuggy The Annoying Bastard:

There are plenty of them.. you're just not invited. xD


13:17:21 Jul 7th 10 - Mr. William The Sneaky Bastard:

I prefer skype, Irc works fine but Skype just works better so why act like a moron and say Irc is better? you might like it more but thats it... and about all vet's just using Irc... thats the biggest BS i have ever heard...


16:18:29 Jul 7th 10 - Mr. Petite Penois:

I feel small.

A nobody, a scrub-nub, is telling me he knows better than I do. Somebody who in all likelyhood who has only played less than 5~ eras and hasn't long since seen his 13th birthday.


Help me. :(


16:20:36 Jul 7th 10 - Mr. Arthur Zonds Fav:

...
You're basing someones ability to choose one chat program over another on how many eras they've played?!  Which is unfathomed.

Someone help him please.


16:21:45 Jul 7th 10 - Dr. Evil Smevil:

and bashing an old VU player at that LOL


16:25:43 Jul 7th 10 - Mr. Petite Penois:

Old VU players are roxbury, elsin, swifty, ez, etc. Players who have been around since the 2001-2004 mark.

William is not an old player. He may be in your little inbred head, but he's a scrub-nub to real old players.


and I'm guessing Arthur-nobody is Arthur Bent? You aren't "stupid", no. Just incredibly gullible.


16:27:53 Jul 7th 10 - Dr. Evil Smevil:

Ah so sweet.  You have no idea how long he has been playing actually.  


16:29:38 Jul 7th 10 - Mr. Petite Penois:

You scrubs are laughable. You think anything around 2007~ constitutes an old player.


17:23:19 Jul 7th 10 - Sir Horus VIII:

I've tried the VU Chat, irc, MSN messenger, and Skype all to no avail. Communication is pretty poor IMO. A few eras ago there was decent (8-10) amounts in VU chat but not anymore.

 

Maybe I should get in a bigger KD?


19:30:31 Jul 7th 10 - Mr. Vuggy The Annoying Bastard:

Christ this is my 10th era, and the last time I saw my 13th birthday was years ago. And could you stop using scrub nub.. I don't scrub anything except the floor of you after I kick your ass on the battlefield.

And you gotta admit.. that was a pretty clever insult. I thought so. ^^


20:07:01 Jul 7th 10 - Mr. Arthur Zonds Fav:

Lol Petite...


Either you're just being a jackass and teasing everyone :P (most likely)

Or you actually think playing this game since it started actually means anything, hehe.


20:10:52 Jul 7th 10 - Mr. Petite Penois:

pls get off my game guys. anybody who didn't play before 2004 isn't allowed to post any longer.

cy@


20:17:42 Jul 7th 10 - Mr. William The Sneaky Bastard:

lawl... just did :-)


20:51:44 Jul 7th 10 - Mr. Arthur Zonds Fav:

Wait... ><  is this revengenoob?  Omg please no! Fuck off you unholy demon!


21:19:46 Jul 7th 10 - Ice Prince Zephyr:

Skype is the new IRC!!


22:52:31 Jul 7th 10 - Mr. Petite Penois:

Don't be so insulting Arthur Bent. I wouldn't wish Rev upon anybody


23:09:08 Jul 7th 10 - Mr. Arthur Zonds Fav:

Oh, then you're a wannabe?  Good *phew*


23:31:10 Jul 7th 10 - Mr. Admirable:

Ice Prince is the new village idiot!!


23:32:52 Jul 7th 10 - Mr. Petite Penois:

I actually do you a diservice, Bent. I think I remember you now. Aren't you one of the BoW scrubs? The KD that LGC (most kds did, infact) raped era, after era?


Still a scrubnub, mind you.


00:07:57 Jul 8th 10 - Mr. Vuggy The Annoying Bastard:

You sure like nubs that scrub things...


00:25:34 Jul 8th 10 - Mr. Arthur Zonds Fav:

LOL, you're a disgrace to flamers everywhere :P  "scrubnub", "Bent", "scrubs"?!?!  LOLOLOL  You a funny man Pet :D

Now go crawl in your hole and stop entertaining yourself by attempting insults.  I'm sure you just love to say stupid things on forums just to see the reactions but seriously... you're a loser.  If this is the best thing you can do with your life then, and I'm giving you great advice here, you might wanna consider getting a life!  Not so hard tbh :/  And don't comment on my life cause you've got no clue :D


02:14:34 Jul 8th 10 - Mr. Admirable:

"you're a disgrace to flamers everywhere"

"You a funny man"

"go crawl in your hole"

"you're a loser"

"you might wanna consider getting a life"


w2g with the cliché "insults" of the 14 year old keyboard warrior, Flame Boi.

Funny how it's the people that never fail to be online at the turn of the hour, every hour, that shout "no life" on forums.


03:27:10 Jul 8th 10 - King Charley The Sprisely Active:

Hai guize, nice sirius discushun heer!


03:54:04 Jul 8th 10 - Mr. Arthur Zonds Fav:

Lol Admirable

<3


04:48:32 Jul 8th 10 - Mr. Vuggy The Annoying Bastard:

What arthur says goes! End of discussion.


04:56:20 Jul 8th 10 - Mr. Arthur Zonds Fav:

Yeah I think we've kind-of gone off topic :/

Irc is dead and Skype is used for now :P


06:29:41 Jul 8th 10 - Dr. Evil Smevil:

Ah Ceiling Cat has been at the liquid pleasure :P


06:52:47 Jul 8th 10 - Mr. Winters:

Wow...after reading all of this, I'm reminded of the M*A*S*H episodes with Winchester, Hawkeye, and Hunnycut lol...

Oh, and I personally think that both programs have their own independent uses - Skype is much more prolific and easier for chatting with friends, but IRC is (usually) much more pointed and somewhat more accessible than Skype is, at least in that it gives access to a much broader community. I guess that means that my vote is to live and let die...I mean, live (CURSE YOU PAUL McCARTNEY!!!)


16:18:33 Jul 8th 10 - Mr. Ashzala:

You know, this is the first time I see skype actually even compared with IRC. VU never cease to amaze me!


Also, I played this game during beta, so I must be a real pro. Roxbury would vouch for me!1!! Or he'd kill me. I'm not sure.


16:38:16 Jul 8th 10 - Mr. Petite Penois:

Skype is more comparable with Vent/TS, than IRC.

IRC is the "gamers" most popular p2p chatting client. VU is a little awkward in that regard.
