By the way, who is the earliest member? Just curious

Also, when did Matrix start? I wonder why I didn't join earlier,???

There is at least one other who has the same membership start date as David Heath.

I've changed signons a couple of times. I think I'm earlier than 2011, but I don't know how much earlier I was. No earlier than probably 2009.

Not to brag, but I was here when this place was just a group of fans of Steel Panthers World at War fanatics.

My actual join date is early 2000.

Oh, the thrill of downloading Steel Panthers over a dial-up modem for 2.5 solid days of download. I couldn't even use the phone to call anyone.

Cool wargamer, so 2000 is earliest. Dial was fun, I used to get a free version of netzero I think, never paid for dialup

First game.. It was either Red devils over Arnhem (was that Matrix), Uncommon Valour or DB Korsun Pocket (all bought from a store! Imagine that). Followed by DB Italy and HTTR.

Games that brought me to the forum where Combat Leader (where art though. The real-time Pacific game aswell) and coming through Wargamer Soldiers at War. This was pre 2003 but had been offline for couple of years and come 2003 had forgot my sign in. Whenever SaW was released and 101st Airborne is when I first joined, if I actually did sign up then, again can't remember.

Don't think Red Devils was - that was the forerunner for Command Ops. Uncommon Valour and Korsun Pocket -certainly were. But you're right - I remember getting Uncommon Valour from a shop -does anyone still really do that ?

It'll be 14 years at the end of this month for me. And only a couple of hundred posts in all that time - but every one a polished gem!

First games were Uncommon ValoUr, COTA and Flashpoint Germany. Still have them all and play them from time to time, especially UV.

Not familiar with the exact month, but I believe Matrix Games (the forums here), dates from 1999.

I missed the beginning by mere months.

I should also mention, some likely will recall, but the 'www' barely predates 2000. Thus a forum any forum, would be challenged to exist in any useful easy fashion much prior to 2000.

I'm guessing the game we know as Steel Panthers World at War would also have trouble originating earlier than 1997, as the release the code is built on was Steel Panthers III Brigade Combat. And that hails from 1997. Allowing for time for the individuals who crafted SPWaW to make it happen, showing up with it before 1999 likely would be a challenge.

It was sure a bear to find methods to get new versions of it in the early days.

Hmm...I would say pre 97. That's the latest I'd go. My mate was online in 97. I was early 98. Some point in 98/99 I was in a Mechcommander campaign which had a forum. I remember Gamespot being around then and I'm sure Amazon. Some point around then I was even on a bidding website as I got a voodoo graphics card dirt cheap.

Think 2000 is abit late as a cut off.
