Hannibal, movies introduced me to dod so hes #1, then I'd say scrimmaging against fr0stbyte would be my second biggest influence. Playing against him really opened up my eyes, and showed me how to play the run and gun style.

I remember downloading a demo back when I was just a pubber of some match where bewton and ackpth played against eachother... I was in awe of both of them. I guess they kind of pushed me to get in to the competitive play. Then I watched a demo of scorch and lost all hope for the game.

And yet you were completely unable to get remotely good at this game despite all this demo-watching. Weird.

The best heavy I've ever seen (even better than Profiction). He somehow found a way to play post-retail heavy like it was early beta, and watching him roll everyone in person at fragmart was incredibly impressive, especially because he ended up being such a nice a personable guy, unlike the rest of mTs which was mostly quiet azn kids and that Unsurreal dude who looked kinda like that Orin guy from Parks and Rec, but a little chubbier and way more insecure.


This is like the 3rd thread I've read where you feel the need to go out of your way to insult me so I think I should say something. Not really sure what did to you man, but after ten years you still gotta single me out and insult what was (and you're right) an insecure and scared kid.. and about my appearance back then? really? I don't know, it's beyond me really why you feel the need to bring any of that up in a thread about remembering the positives of our DoD ancestry. With that off my chest the least I can do is apologize for anything my younger and very immature self may have done to piss you off so much. This is the internet/1911 so i don't really expect much to come from this post but, whatevs.

Also, the ]mTs[ guys were some of the nicest people I played DoD with. Ghostrider was a fantastic player and he took me under his wing while we were at Fragmart. I've always appreciated him for that.

My list:
Hn
Regis
strifetoe

I remember these 3 in particular when I first started playing DoD and I was in awe of what they were able to do and of the frag vids they made. To me, these 3 players were on a completely different level of play than everyone else at the time. I remember watching is movies over and over again, studying his play. I tried to model my sniper play off of him, playing very aggressively and often less like a sniper and more like a Rifleman... which didn't always work out in my favor. Strifetoe was the equivalent of Hn in the NA scene. He had some beautiful streaks and had a kar style like no one else at the time. As for Regis, well I remember watching Moblitque countless times. It was through him that I began to look at the environment of dod maps and how to use them to my advantage.

I never really watched demos or movies of other players. As far as I can remember, I was always involved with small groups of teams who just scrimmed a lot and were ALWAYS online, so I had no need to socialize/pug. As a result, it was always more about teamwork from playing together so much.

First run at dod:
Kungset and Jerkstore - random pubbers from {D.D} that none of you know. They are the ones who got me to play dod, and gave me the config that i still use today. i.e right click crouch, jump with E, spacebar secondary, etc. Don't know how to play any other way.

Art3x - Besides the fact that he was a very good player, more importantly, he is a good dude. Even though he was playing against some of the best, he found the time to hang out in our pub clan's server and vent. I am pretty sure i remember him helping out our leaders with strats and shit even though we were just an open team. You're never too good to help others out.

mexicant and habib - These guys played STA with us around 2005. One or the other would usually fill in a spot and just playing with them definitely helped my team learn a lot of the tricks that we didn't really know as an IM/M team. We improved as a team a lot because of it. Made it to the gold finals, only to lose to those dreaded STR guys. From this I took the lesson that dominate teamwork can be vastly more important than a bunch of fraggers and when I lead a team to this day, I try to make teams with really good teamwork.

Current run at dod:
Ceebz - Mainly for the settings of my game that I use, specifically the black bars.

johndkc - When i first came back after hiding out in the pub servers, me, heineken, 1080p etc, were just proning everywhere like idiots. I think it was John who got it through my head to stop doing it. It definitely has made me a lot better.

That would be Cyan, who I claimed back on the end of page 4. Find a new influence.

seveN- smart player with some sick no recoil

Bewton- just as you think THUNDER will win it all, BOOM comes Bewton and friends to send them packing.
Amazing rifle and chill a hell

Hiphopopotumas- made on of my first 12 man experiences on a real gaming computer funny as hell.
And he could play pretty damn well too.

Nomis- simply Keller.

hXc- it's Taylor. He's pretty fucking good. He's also chill as easy to heavy with

Netherhell- taught me how to snipe and just sit in one spot

Blech!- watched demos of him and eventually got the chance to have him play for me. Great guy an easy going and can damn well ace a team

Jackson and Leroy- they pretty much have to go together. I remember being 10 and watching my big brothers team "soul!" play. These two could damn well play 2v6 and still beat the shit out of some people


Last but not least, Dorito- First starting this game I was told to go watch demos and I'd always reply, of who. I constantly watched Dorito. Not focusing on his rifle skills jut how he plays and use that along with hxc/seveN to become the subpar random frag player I am.


Great thread Jaggon

Decided to randomly contribute although I haven't touched this game in years. It's sad that I still see some people in this community are still bitter individuals with large egos..

Mainly the euro's - Blythe, Animal, Zoanth, etc. In my learning era, euro's had a much faster play style which, I guess, can be aptly described as run and gun. I enjoyed watching their movies for the sake of entertainment and as a result learned from their tendencies. The Body & Slip movie was also one that I quite enjoyed and taught me rifle fragging.

Doesn't mean that other players didn't influence me. But as a pubber, I didn't really care for anything but cool movies and dominating the 'clan tagged' players who came in my regular servers. I think a person I frequently liked playing against who pubbed late at night was dyelife.

Once I got into the CAL scene, a few players I liked watching were Bleargh, ackpth-, Bewton (sad we didn't get to play on a team in my dod tenure), tox, and Damon. Heavies I liked watching were ProFiction, Alex Rubel, Ron Li, oPlaid and Beas (still remember the cal-i Harrington semi-final where oPlaid dropped bombs on allies).

What the hell are you doing here? YOU LOST, BOY? You should come back and show the new cheaters how cheating is really done.

Good ole Jarret Haynes aka Cyan. He was leaps and bounds ahead of everyone back in the day when it came to movie making. He made highball finals from our anzio match with x6 and that was back in04, still to this day one of the best movies out. Short sweet and simple. You know alot of people hated on Cyan back in the day, they call him Cryan 24/7 bc he always whined in vent but he was a damn clutch player, probably one of the most underated players of all time.

Do you ever talk to him? He helped me out a lot when I first started, curious as to what he's up to.

interesting read. <3 u corey

basically i learned a lot very quickly from the rvc guys and dice guys when i first started. we knew a lot of them through cs and it allowed me to play with some really good players very early.

but the 2 most influential are DR and MaX.

i remember the first week gomi came to dod from CS (me, sonik, ko, luk), we were able to frag pretty hard from the first day. we got accused of cheating in scrims we were losing by 500. we didnt know how to play dod yet. we learned it pretty quickly and had a good first season (only lost 1 game in reg season and went to semi finals), but once we got DR on the team for our second season, we took a huge jump with how to really play dod like a really good team. also played a billion 12mans with him and was always drawn to specing him whenever i could. played with him at Socal 4, and Socal 5. very exciting player but very smart.

then, around summer 2005, or maybe fall, max asked me to heavy with him at socal 4. we had a team of max seven DR tofuman miller and x$m that lost in the finals to LLL8. we also played on a team together under the x6 "sponsor" and again together right after wsvg 2006 with spf3000. so i learned a LOT from him on how to play the heavy position while heavying with him on all different teams, especially during the time of socal4 and all throughout the tourny. mainly because i was still only playing less than a year at this point so i was like a sponge at the time and still getting better.

those 2 were 2 of the smartest and best players ive ever played with. i learned a lot about how to lead in game from them, and how it is to play with 6 guys as a team and show us what/how a real invite team is. also, being able to see their thought process as you play multiple cal matches, lan matches and team scrims with them over time. that was probably the most influential thing really because it shapes the kind of player become,it determines the type of in game decisions you make, and it shapes how you think about the game in-game philosophies. and they were the first real elite and experienced players i got to play extended time with in the first year of playing dod. so by my definition of "influential" those 2 were the 2 that influenced me most as a player.

oh and also sonik. we both heavied together for a LOT of matches and a LOT of scrims for a long time. also talked dod quite a bit and watched tons of hltv demos together early on. really great heavy partner and a guy who knew how to play the heavy position.

some other honorable mentions that still influenced me quite a bit are:
scorch
Qu1rkZ
shotgunderek
profiction
luk/sonik/ko

in more recent years, since ive played so long, i've been pretty set in my ways as a player. plus, at this stage in the game, why try so hard? but i have been influenced in a different kind of way. it is almost the opposite as before and it is more skill based. some of you these days are just nuts. a few off the top of my head are ryanemo, taylor, cableguy, tox, bryan, jules, these are all guys that influence me in a more skillbased kind of way by just getting to see the shit they pull off. i guess its influential because those are guys that can be so nuts at times that it influences the way i have to play against them.

<3 you all
