(Start with "I remember when" and add your own bitter vet story)

I remember when... we had to wait for a session change between changing every ship in your hanger. You kids.


EDIT: For the spectators of this thread... click [like] for the one you liked and or hated. Let's see which is most infamous.
EDIT 2: Try to limit to one liners. (for the like sakes)

I remember ....

3 day trials
The most basic of tutorials (shoot this rat, mine this rock, now off you go)
No 'career agents' for new players
ISK had more value
When Battleships and Interceptors were what the cool kids were flying.
A time before BoB.
No Black Rise, or Drone Regions.
Miner IIs on a Thorax were the mining ship of choice.

Ah the good old days. May they always be remembered.

I remember when there weren't any honest isk doublers. It was hard back then for the average Joe to get ahead.

See Bio for isk doubling rules. If you didn't read bio, chances are you funded those who did.

I remember when CCP would not allow scams like yours in the forums.

hint: there are no honest "isk doublers".











There's a million angry citizens looking down their tubes..at me.

Having to setup bookmarks past all the gates so that you could exit warp directly on-top of them. Man, that sure did suck!

Post with your main, like a BOSS!

And no, i don't live in highsec.  As if that would make your opinion any less wrong.

I remember when the forums didnt have 'I remember when' threads.

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?
