So Jen was thinking it would be nice to have a running history of CG since I've been around since round 36 I volunteered to write this Article.
I wasn't around for any of the time I am going to talk about in this section and I haven't found anyone I can interview so I don't really know anything besides what the HOF tells me. From what I can tell in the beginning no one really knew how to play (compared to now a days) and the top sub clocked in at 14 million nw with 15 days per round as of round 3. Those are some low numbers Frees have been known to hit that number in the first twenty four hours now. But I digress. Another key difference back then was there was something called a roleplaying round. Again I have no idea what that was sorry. So for a while Priestsoftheemptynothing was running the game similiar to the way PHAD does now. The key difference was they had two full crews in the HOF several rounds in a row. At around round 7 USArmy a crew our older members will surely be familiar with arrived on the scene as a role playing crew (again beats me). Round ten saw the end of the Role Playing rounds, and Priests were still calling the shots. Then round 12 happened and BAM Major upset USArmy took ALL THREE TOP CREWS that's right a group gathered 30 players and beat out priests to OWN the round completely. PHAD has never done that too my knowledge. USArmy dominated all the way to round 15 when NationalGuard finally squeked in a bronze. Another thing worth noting is around round 13 Phil2005 arrived on the scene and started taking medals every single round. Round 16 USArmy's stranglehold finally broke to just gold. On round 18 USArmy disappeared all together. But they came back round 19th with another gold and we saw our first appearence of BritishBullDogs another crew some old players will surely remember. Round 19 was also the first round Barbie won a medal (With the name Barbie anyways). Hyp3rion and Trolleyguy arrived on the medal scene on round 21 pulling in roughly 71 million nw. Man if time travel existed. But I digress again. Priesis made a sudden return in round 22 and UKArmy arrived on the medal scene. At this point in time I'd like to make note of a little known fact. Sc00bs first HOF entry was as a top free in round 23. Round 26 saw the rise of two infamous crews for medals CunningStunts Sc00bs famous crew, and None other than the Crusaders lead by SaintJoanOfArc may she rest in peace (Interesting side note she was a good friend of mine and one time told me a story of how her and a dozen or so other subs all put their funds together into one account: hers then she challenged sc00b in open warfare. She still lost) Trolleyguy got a silver medal with trainwreck arriving on the HOF scene on round 28. Rounds 33 SaintJoan premiered the 100YearsWarriors in bronze and ImmortalSoldiers arrived and took first. Round 35 saw the first "Family crew" with tags to earn a medal in the form of SoldiersOfHeaven. And that concludes our first chapter of things I wasn't around for Stay tuned for further updates as I get into the knitty gritty of my noob years and the things that followed.
