harru avinstallert det? :nono:

Min unnskyldning har vært at jeg har kjørt eksklusivt lunix siste 18 mnd. Kanke komme meg unna nå.

En god del ferskinger på serverne denne helga. Langt mellom de gode rundene pga ujevne lag. Går seg forhåpenteligvis til etterhvert, og det blir vel flere som spiller det etter en sånn frihelg. Var visst 12000 som spillte det samtidig i går på et tidspunkt(iflg en UWE tweet).

Husker i "gamle dager", i den gyldne modde tidsalderen på tidlig 00 tallet, da var entusiasmen rundt NS ganske stor. Artig at det har holdt seg levende så lenge.

Kjøpte det via tilbudet, fått spilt et par timer :-) kjempe underholdning. Spesielt vist man får til teamwork og bruker com.

Anbefales å teste :-D
