WHAT. IS. UP?

I think it is safe to say that is no one more older school than the Underscores. Simply the greatest gaming clan to ever grace the servers of the original [H]|G You could also use us as the litmus test of old-schoolness because if you remember playing with us then you were around during the golden age of [H]|G :)

I believe that at one point a majority of the old CS admins were members of this clan and we're the reason why [H] won every single HardOCP vs Ars Technica tournament. One might say that our bubbly, infectious (yet modest) personalities and our unique style of gameplay was the spiritual heart of the old community.

I can't tell you how happy we all are to see a renaissance of Hard Gaming. It's the community where we all grew up (it honestly had to have begun like 10+ years ago). Now we're all "old" and we have jobs and some of us have wives and kids and stuff (others of us have kickass cats). Hopefully some of the other old regulars will show up, we're totally looking forward to the BF3 servers.

Until then I'll leave you with this collection of random screenshots and images from the good ol' days. Maxius please feel free to praise us publicly since you know firsthand how awesome we are.

side note: I dont have any but Im hoping somebody can dig up some screenshots from the old [H] vs. [Ars]. Beating the crap out of those babies was truly the best :)

Also, for those who may not know.
[ __ ] Underscores - This is the business professional look for times when we must pretend to behave as adults.
[=D] Manhammers - This is our alter ego clan that also serves as a satirical take on gaming culture and is designed to hold a mirror up to society.

So here are a bunch of old schoolers that we still hang out with, hopefully some of the names jog your memory.

I used to hang out in the cs server pretty often.

Same as me. Hell CS: Source is still a better game then most of the crap out now. Does not have the eye candy but at least the game play is still there..

I remember a lot of those names. I used to play a lot on the [H]ardgaming CS servers. I either went by Haven, or HavenIndy which I still go by. I never got into the the CAL stuff or vs. [Ars], well once I think I participated in a vs. [Ars], but it wasn't the main [H] or [Ars] guys, it was all third/fourth stringers.

For the people filled with hate towards me, it's been decades, let it go. Ah, the good old days from the members I was fond of most of [__] and Grendel who is a member of PCPER's staff for a while now, my former hA clansmen and Bulletstorm for his skill was second too few on the server. Most are on my steam's friends list to this day and active to a point. I do miss me playing with server 3 who does not love antigrav knife fights?

i'm too old to remember the hate... but im sure it was justified right? I can however remember [H]G servers/gaming community/tournaments and scrims were some of the most fun I had gaming... that being said can we even still play cs 1.6 anymore?
