8 years ago I was playing Half-life and got very board with it and decided to search the Planet Half-life website for something new. I spotted a mod to Half-Life called The Battlegrounds, A Revolutionary War Mod for Half-life. I had just watched the movie The Patriot and wow what a great movie. So I downloaded the mod and gave it a try and was hooked. At that time only 4 servers were up on Won. I cranked up a Intel 3 pc ,started a deticated server and played bg for 24 hours. At that time 1.0 beta was the release and throwing Tomahawks and Firing the muskets at the rebels or the Brits clear across the battlefield and dropping them in there tracks was just the sirg of energy I was waiting for LOL. A few months later already another release and improved maps came out and leagues begin to form. With the help of my good friend Revolver I set up a server threw Infro_services and joined the BGL. Great Clans Like KRR, MM, SOD, SFB, 13th, Diga, Gar, RR, RA, GST, Co2 ,GOW, Paradigma, SS and the 33rd kept the Battlegrounds going Hot everyday. New maps by Predator, Crosshair, Curious George,Grantel and WooHoo help to keep the mod fun. Pugs were not uncommon everynight as clans join together and pick teams and mingled together as friends in a small community. These are just a few thoughts I have about a great and historic mod. Now This is My last post in the BG1 forum and I want to ask all you to post some feedback on your fun times in Battlegrounds 1. See Ya On the Battlefields.

I will tell you what I think, this is horrible. Like all the other remakes of BG1 maps. There is a reason why we do not do that in any form. Do not bother to remake old bg1 maps. BG1 was a totally different game as draco pointed out and the maps are not going to work out on BG2.

Yeah, this was excepted a long time ago, but happened only just now. Battlegrounds 1 was a great game, imo the best game I've ever played with awesome community. I think there aren't many games or at least half-life mods, which have stayed alive this long with such small community. But we did, we stuck together for all these years.

I happened to be lucky one to start playing battlegrounds 1 when bgl was about to start. There were some conflicts with the admins of the EBGL, which caused the end of that league afaik. Anyway since bgl started, community has stuck together very well, if ignoring a few cases (e.g NP). What made bgl astonishing, was the competition which bgl remained till almost very end. Apart from the times of Paradigma, there has been great competition of achieving the title of bgl. Paradigma, Independence and G.o.W(and maybe Be Blue! recently) all had their long streaks in bgl, but no clan remained undefeated.

I also want to thank all clans, like Death did, apart from Paradigma,G.o.W,Independence,G.R.I,TRR,Be Blue!,GoD,SoI,La Familia,Bonse(=SOD),LuF and not to forget the NA clans, but Death already mentioned most of 'em, so I'm not gonna repeat those.

Battlegrounds 1 had its glorious time, and I hope as long duration & fun moments for bg2 too!
GL HF !

I just read this thread now, but there were a couple of teams that remained undefeated in NA bgl at least. I forget which ones, but I was on two of them.

Best game ever, smile.gif Aus/NZ had a good amount of people and even ran own clan matches every week which was exciting.
Never will forget the many great battles using just the bayonet biggrin.gif just aim for the head! HL2 destroyed BG1 and should of never happened BG1 was the best of the best.

i just downloaded BG1(for the 4th time)and installed it. everything went smooth until i clicked "Find Servers" in-game and none appeared. i thought it was just my crap-tastic computer/internet connection combo, but ive found servers for counter strike and DoD. soooo....... what the hell ???
ive just read a few topics. so is it true that nobody plays BG1 anymore? damn its been like 3 years since ive played >.< and im 1 of the unlucky ones with tha infamous computer/internet combo sad.gif i just moved to a horrible country in central america and due to a catastrophic power outage, my good gaming computer doesnt work for jack-shite. so dont blame me for these unforgivable circumstances. blame centrl america >.> anyways im using my father's computer and it cant handle the source engine. too much heavenly goodness for this piece of shi-so plz reply asap. tyvm smile.gif

Best game/modd ever... No game can beat the good oll BG 1.1 and 1.2
still have 3 copy's of the old BG versions, just can't delete them wink.gif
Ive been in the top 10 of BG players... untill the newest versions came out
with the shitty gameplay and aim-bullshit, even n00bs started to own me
that was the reason for me to retire. anyways.. Respect to all the guys
who played BG1! special thanks to [34th]Quincy, [KRR]Hydro and [KRR]Dragunov
for all the good times.


Hairypotter: bg1 isn't dead untill the fans say so!


Regards,

[34th]Johnny_Knoxville
