End of an era. I must tell Desmond the last server is gone next time I see him.

Started playing on CS:S on UKCS back in 2007/2008. I was about 11/12 years old, now I'm 23. Basically grown up with the lot of you. Thank you for so many wonderful memories from both the CS:S and the TF2 bunch. It was a blast and wouldn't want to change it. This truly was a second home.

Some of the things I fondly remember most was on CS:S UKCS#4 when Alias started implementing his insane and crazy maps for the Sunday evenings. The server was packed until late night and was just filled with fun and great banter. TF2#2 was also always a constant mess, it probably was the best TF2 server to play on for a long while, glad to have experienced it at its prime.

Cheers for the memories and great experiences, everyone.

To echo everyone else, it really feels like the end of an era.

First found UKCS after buying the orange box, completing Portal and deciding to give TF2 a try (a game which I thought I'd hate!). Suffice to say, I loved it, and I truly believe that was more to do with finding UKCS as a community at the right time.

Had some amazing times here, including several LANs, and made some lifelong friends.

Love you all, hope you are staying safe (and indoors!) and wish you the best in life going forward.

Games have not been a big part of life in the past fair few years but a notification of a private message and to read some comments from people back in the day and to see there has still been activity has been great to see.

Some great memories playing here! Stay safe all!

Bit late to post in this thread, but just needed to say this:

We were great, weren't we? Some awesome times, people I'll never forget. Didn't get to meet up IRL as often as I'd have liked, but made it to one iLAN at least!

Thanks everyone for being awesome.

I was (am) a member of a Q2 CTF forum and a few people on it were playing TF2 and saying how much fun it was, i think someone there pointed me towards UKCS.

I didn't expect to make so many friends here or put just so much time into one game :)

I remember getting kicked for telling people to press F10 to vote for the next map when i first started playing :)

Thanks Nigel for everything and everyone else for helping to make this such a fun place to be for such a long time. Valve killed the community servers and i still think this was a bad idea.

Huge thanks to Xerxes for the sig :)

Wow. Only clicked back here after a loong time away. Sorry to hear this but lovely reading through all the messages. I have some very fond memories of UKCS both on the servers and on the forum. Some of my happiest times online have been spent here and I met a bunch of great people. Thank you to TC and all the mods and admins and the whole community for some top fun times over the years.

Hope you all stay safe and well and I wish you all the best for the future.

A bit late,sorry , cCc (old friend from ncc clan based on UKCS)just told me this.
When i noticed this news i felt have to drop a some words,
Well, i'm trying to remember in 1 minute all the good times,and good friends i have found here,there is a lot of internet gaming history for me here.
Lot of people grew up here,like above comment from Nish ,i remember him when he was a kid.. and yes it's sad to see this happens,but it's normal and i can understand,and even if i dont play css anymore, it's so sad. </3
I'm not good with farewell words,but what i want to say is : Thanks to all that made this posible !!! Stay safe and wish all of you the best in your life !!! But good part is, some of you can be found online in other places,who knows if maybe in the future there is kind a UKCS 2.0 so we can meet again,cyberspace and life could be not that short . <3

All good things come to an end, and this community was a very, very good thing.

All the best everyone - it was a pleasure knowing you all!

CP

edit: forgot to say thanks especially to TC for all your hard work through the years - hugely appreciated. You should be very proud of what you made!

Wow just seen this, gutted that gaming has gone away from great communities like this.

Thanks TC for the hard work over the years and for the opportunity to admin DoD:S.

And of course the great people I have met over the years, I hope you are staying safe in these times.
