I was BoS the whole time, for about 6 years I think. I sunk so much time into that game..
I was James Rhino, reached R6 in the final few years. Trying to get Born to lose back in but he's having none of it. Seen a few familiar faces on here - good to see!

Polls are manipulative. The glorious GIS is missing. I wish to speak to your superior or history teacher.

Until then my vote goes to the LED

Started out as LED because police, then went to VI and EC because colors, but I felt most at home with MotB which is what I voted for. Came in when the game was dying and ran a small little Merc group called Iconoclasti for a few months before life happened and I ended up moving. Played on a laptop way back then, pretty excited for the combat to be back to use an actual mouse and keyboard, and of course to get hired to raid. Those were the best times.

Also, ignore my avi. It was a joke on discord, and I cannot change it. So, sorry.

Had my own little group of just under 200 (not including allied and associated groups) that attempted to secure Terra Venture 1 as a free and independent economic/governmental entity. That plan went down the shitter when the effective head of our movement involved Vode An. It was fun while it lasted though.

Do you know who I wonder who they were during the FOM era, Shakespear.
I was John Spears, Shakespears, shakus spearus, Shakus the Warryar, Beefrich Shaver(DSV name), Swiggity Swooty II, BJ Morris.

I was in motb from 2005 (not as active after 07-12 due to being in the navy and playing second life with FOM folks) till fotd as a freelancer except when I was in ZP and TII. In fotd I was in swag rats, telechubbies, and LED.

I was a random player, nothing fancy.

Started playing in I think 2004 during Open Beta (tall dark models instead of the shinier ones later) in LED (char was named either Lutra Ikaryang or Loden Ikariyang) . I specifically remember being in some patrol mission with Jai when he was R3 where we walked around the Mall (Brooklyn?) and surrounding areas doing very little. Did a lot of DMC defense missions before turrets came out and died all the time. Still remember when turrets first came out and guarding DMC was easier but there was a lot of controversy because some people think it made GD weaker.

I eventually made it to R4 in DPI running training on some sort of space station (Yukon?) because I can't shoot worth a damn. Couldn't go above R3 anywhere else. There was some invasion from Yukon to Ground Zero which was pretty epic, just shittons of GD vorting in. I vorted into the wrong node and got killed by a merc. I think there was a person named DEATHSCYTHE but I didn't know him/her personally, just saw him/her crouching around in Brooklyn Mall.

I got bored so I defected to GoM (character: Songa Ikariyang) and just talked to people on TS/Vent while guarding Aquatica. I only remember Cypher and Alan Quartermaine(sp?). We got steamrolled a lot by random people from BoS.
I got bored from that too and somehow got into DL (char: Odd Gunner) through a guy named Nemesis even though, like I said, I suck at fighting. I was both GoM and MotB for a while until Cypher found out because a whole group of us GoM guys went into my P51 apartment where another GoM guy who was also DL on another account was camping with his buddy. Everyone died and it was obvious how they got into my apartment so Cypher told me I had to quit DL or I'd get booted from GoM.

I left DL for various reasons but mainly cause I liked the GoM guys and I sucked at combat. Toward when MS1 was rolling around I decided to do a bunch of PNS reporting for some reason and walked around interviewing random people. I remember one story specifically in Andromeda.

I made one last defection before MS1 where I went to EC (char: Odd Gunner II). The week before MS1 was chaos. Lots of shooting on Moon Base and TV1 for god knows what reason. I engaged in a lot of those fights and it was fun.
My shitty computer couldn't handle MS1 (sad I know) so basically I didn't play until a bit before that final kick starter campaign (was it with nexeon? I forget). I was mainly GoM and EC. I remember Reefer and that's about it. I think though the fun of Open Beta made it hard for me to get into the 2010 version of FoM, especially with the significantly fewer players. The days of massing in Yukon or DMC or even Aquatica made it pretty sad to walk around Manhattan with like two other guys. Still, I lurked the forums a lot because there's nothing quite like FoM. I started and stopped a lot of games but couldn't really let go of FoM ever since I was 13 years old.

Anyway I was kind've a weird kid and it's been 8-14 years so hopefully people forgot about how I was like during OB/2010. I hope this project succeeds and let me know if yall need any help.

Edit:

Btw does anybody know what happened to Cypher and Alan?

I'm the kind of guy who was a noob FDC then a noob LED during the coup and liked to pass time watching good fighters duel (and getting so close yet so far from their levels, had to git gut and shit). Seeing myself progress both in combat and social kills at a time where I was a weird 16y old kid was pretty a pretty cool experience. I really miss all the crazy shit that happened daily in FoM...

Feels weird to see all those old names, some I even fought with, didn't see much of my old LED colleagues tho (surely there are 2010-2011 DPI or Eurasian Patrol old farts hanging around :p)

Spent 5 seconds in LED and moved to MotB from 05 until the end.

Part of DL, WAR, AoM(or some shit like that with Rand al Thor), ES and lastly NSP.

BC r6 a majority of the time in to eventual joint r7 with Spyke until I got banned for saying no one should give money to duplex/nex until they fix the fucking game during the short time I was a RP forum mod.
Fk off Larry you're not an 05er

More like a 69er iykwim ;) ;)
