Thread: Old timers (Vow1 players)

So, my first time in the forum in quite some time (year)

While talking about old times in the chat , i though it would be nice to know how many old timers(Vow1) are still around.
My first Nick was

Hooded Star (id not remember)

This thread has just piqued my curiosity, as VOW 1 is something that I was obviously not a part of and during my time here, VOW 2 has changed very little. Would you folks be able to describe what VOW 1 was like back in the old days? :)

A lot better...not as in gameplay, but the people + athmosphere was...

Think of VOW2 but with less moves, no specialized moves, no staff and no stables or tag teams and less tournaments...

Pretty sure that was it.

VOW2 started on 3rd March 2004 (I think), and I started on the 19th March 2004, so sadly I'm not a VOW1 player :P

VOW 1 had:

- 1 style more (amateur wrestler style)
- Less moves (I'd guess around 50)
- No leagues
- Tourneys cost 5000$ (style) 10000$ (rest) and thus would only run once a month
- No Finishers (you got one finisher at the beginning that wasnt based on any move)
- No tag teams
- No fame (was introduced in the last 2 weeks of VOW1)
- No staff
- more injuries
- no LMS and Table matches
- Healing worked a little differently
- You could not see your opponents exp or your own (was changed in the last 2 weeks of VOW1)
- You allways got 5 exp for a win
- Match description was not as detailed as now. Color commentary was missing
- a different forum
- your max-stats didnt grow with exp (changed in the last 2 weeks of VOW1)
- you did not know your max-stats until you reached them
- lots of practical changes that have been made didnt exist back then. For example, there was no "message" or "challenge" link in the playerlist or charsheet - you had to type your opponents id everytime you made a challenge

aside from all the fakers, the ones around in VOW1 were:
Hoodie, Scorp, LM, Cone .... and thats allready it.

So 4 are left (or 4 of those that are left read the forum)

not a lot, but still...

Basically, anybody created around under 4950-5000 mark would be a VOW1 player.

pretty few ones are still around from the old times.

Things keep evolving and life goes on i guess...:P

I think i (Hooded Star) had an Id of something like : 3189 or something.

I still remember the times when I , Thorondor and some other tried to Start Rp-ing in the forums

Jolly good times..

Missed this one, I unfortuantely missed out on VOW1. I joined in the early days of VOW2 when things were still being decided. I remember the crappy start stats and the having to type peoples ID's to challenge them. I also remember reading a hilarious roleplay between Son Of Sam, Masked Avenger (I think that was his name... masked something) and a couple of other guys I can't remember. That old forum rocked :D

Thorondor 2381

and I believe that in VOW1 donators could only have one wrestler :)

It sounds as if VOW2 is a great improvement form VOW1
you cant see m2.(29020)
I joined 2 years ago so i missed out on VOW1 by about half a year... but i have still been around long enough to remeber a vow with only singles, ladder and cage... and i also remeber when there were only about 8 legends in all of vow... and to be a legend was the pinical of this game... however now becoming a legend doesn't mean as much as it once did:(
Post by: FloriZeus(7923)
2007-01-03 03:15:36
Well, Legends were only introduced after about a year or so of VOW2.

It was also 5 exp a win at one point, even for beating 0 exp noobs. LAW was up to 200 exp and there was even a point when it was just LAW and PWO.

There was even a time without any leagues :)

There was a time when you didn't have a "You have a match!" alert..

There was a time when you got a submission win for throwing someone out of a ring.

Yeh it would seen so much more convient to u old timers to have the message n match alerts compared to not having any alerts and having to check all the time
