Oh my god, yes to all of that.

Remember when the Missile Sling was OP.
Remember when the Rocket Launcher fired dark-coloured projectiles.
Remember when everybody would fall onto the sand after the ship exploded.
Remember when the reload springs were overused as hell.

Remember when ships would spawn inside of each other.
Remember when the carronade was the best weapon to destroy ships armor/health with.
Remember when the Heavy(Medium) Flak did as much damage as the howitzer.

The cycle just wouldn't stop... One day everybody was using them, and the next it was freaking useless.

It started with a discussion about adventure mode, world-building and fast-travel. In the end we agreed upon that the real backstory to GoIO was that giant flying rutabagas had taken over the world. It then established itself as some kind of "meme" on the early forum. One of my fondest memories from the old days :D

Quote from: Zilith
I'm afraid its too late. Flying Rutabagas have already been spotted over the city of Minneapolis...

Didn't they change it from a hammer to a... thing... right at the end of the beta, switch it back to a hammer a few days later, switch it back to a... thing... later on, and then switch it back to a hammer again?

I remember that! To be fair, though, a lot of people used voice changers back then.

I remember when Captain Roy would use a voice changer to sound British one match, then Australian the next, etc.

Remember when Desert Scrap was about digging people out of the hole rather than fighting storms.
