    Not sure why, but for me, around this time of the year, I tend to get really nostalgic for the good ol' days of Minecraft, especially (Legacy) Mc-War. Went back and watched a few of my old videos, and made me wonder what everyone else gets nostalgic for from War.

    For me, these are the thinks I really think back on and remember:

    Holiday Break - During my Christmas break, every year since I had a card, I'd buy myself a week of Double XP and MVP, and go full tryhard mode. It was always so fun.

    Teamspeak - Back in the good ol' days of staying up late on teamspeak with my soundboard and messing around with friends. Oh, also seeing how long I could go without closing teamspeak.

    Dubstep - Although I still jam out to it these days, I was never playing a round of War without blasting my dubstep. Nonetheless, I have a handful of songs that really remind me of this time.

    Alts - Way back in the days when nobody had alt accounts. It was cool having Snail_5_ as level 150+ and Snail_1_ as level 60+, as well as multiple other accounts level 31+.

    The SnailPack - Who could ever forget that annoyingly-bright blue texturepack we all loved? Making and using that pack was a fun experience.

    Black Clan Tag - Boy do I remember thinking I was so cool for being one of a small amount of players with a black clan tag (150+). Shame I never got to 200+

    Tryharding for Staff - Ooooh wow, I really used to minimod back then. All I cared about was making my way into the staff team, and I'd stop at nothing to get there. Guess it eventually paid off.

    YouTube -
    Though it was absolutely cringey, I loved getting to post Mc-War YouTube videos! My goal back then was to be the most popular YouTuber for Mc-War. Maybe one day.

    Friends - This, is the biggest and most important part to me. I've made so many friends in the past 7 years on War, been through a lot of friend groups, and I wish I could go back to those times and hang out with them again. I'll never forget these people.

    Do any of y'all ever get nostalgic about the good ol' days on War? What are some of the greatest moments that you remember?

    Bruh I got to talk to so many people on mc-war and have fun with all of them. It wasn’t only about tryharding the game it was also about having fun with it with people that you met. And now thinking about it, a lot of those people I’m never gonna talk to again and it makes me sad cause i met a bunch of dope ass people.

    All of the friends I made along the way. Makes me sad to think that I've only stayed in contact with a handful of them ;-;

    Same here, feels like you got to know so many people but never really asked for teamspeak etc.

    First of all Congratz on Smod.
    It's funny really. This server changed my life so much I still get reminded of it almost every day.
    I will never ever forget this server and everyone on it. So many friends, great people and overall so many good memories.
    I feel nothing but love for mc-war, the whole staff, putty and brawl overall. Even tho at the time I think I've been quite the pain in the ass sometimes.
    The music from the time always makes me remember mc-war.
    Missing the server a lot. Would love to see it grow again.

    There’s too much nostalgia to go over but I do think about the glory days now and then.

    Oh yeah, I totally get nostalgic feelings all the time, and especially this time of year. Being right in the midst of a hard semester, and looking forward to all the breaks coming up (Thanksgiving and Christmas) I would always love to get on and play with friends. Here are some of the things I remember from Legacy that are super nostalgic

    Pressing Tab
    No other game in the history of games has made me press tab so many times. I always would press tab while playing War, just to see how many people were on, who was on, and which teams each person was on. Pressing tab and seeing 3-4 rows of players was just the best feeling ever, and I knew I had to be at the top of my game because when more people were on that meant more kill possibilities, and that meant I could get my kdr up higher. Always around this time of year lots more people would get on, and it was always great when so many people were on.

    Clans
    Clans were always so fun to monitor and be a part of. I would always try to get in one of the elite clans, but I never got to 100+ so I was never able to join any of them. Seeing which good players were on which clans was always fun, and the creation of clans and the disbanding of clans and all the drama was so fun. I would always try to make the biggest clan, and it took me forever to do so because WOLF was always huge (like 600+ people). I finally broke WOLF and surpassed it with NIMH (I think I achieved 800 and one point).

    Making a Forum Post
    Whenever I had an idea or a topic I wanted to talk about, I'd always come on here and post my ideas and thoughts. I always had such a fun time seeing how many views my threads would get, and I would always try to get ratings and make people laugh. Making threads was one of my favorite things to do, and talking about mc-war was just fantastic. It was awesome when so many people would actually be on the forums and see your post, and you'd actually have good discussions.

    Try-Harding For Staff
    When I first played War, Brawl was huge, and I didn't even dream of becoming staff on the server. There were like 10 servers of 70 people on war all day every day, not to mention loads of people on Party (even big youtubers would come play). After a few years of simply playing I tried to get staff, and miserably failed because I wasn't allowed on TS, and didn't even have a forums account at the time (I made one to apply). The denial was really good for me though, as whenever I played War, I always would try to be as helpful and mature as I could, and it would even take me away from playing the game if I was trying hard to help someone when a staff member was on so they'd notice me :stuck_out_tongue:

    Brawl (war) was like the best video game I ever played because there was an actual community behind it, and people that were actually there. Mineplex and Hypixel don't even have that, because their servers are so big. Coming on the the forums every now and then is awesome because I know almost everyone, and have seen almost everyone in game or had some sort of interaction with them. If I could go back in time to 2013 I would, just so I could relive all the awesome times on Brawl :smile:
