Officially Retired| 11:00
NIL8 is truly officially retired this time for
real. I have been out of the clan since March so I don't know
the details of what went wrong on the second go 'round. I had
some fun in the 6 months that I played and I will always
remember those first few months after I joined when NIL8 was
still very strong. So many great players were in this clan then
that when I think back its amazing we didn't do better although
we did hold a few titles. Most NIL8 members are either in tF,
FOoM or retired. GG to everyone.
Into Action| 11:00
we go again, 2 months after our last scheduled
match vs. CO we have returned back into action.
Recruiting was annoying and tiresome yet we
prevailed and now we stand strong with a roster
of 13. we are looking for some scrims in the next
couple weeks then returning to league play, see
you on the battlefield soon.

win over CO|8:00
When the word got
out that this was our last match ever, several of
the "inactive" members showed up and
wanted some action. We brought UncleBadass and
hays "King of the Boat" into the D
lineup and their presence was a great morale
boost for the team. We got ruined on every
scrimmage we played on Oppose2k1 and weren't sure
how tonight would go but with those 2 skilled
soldiers in the mix we tried an all-new D setup
and it worked great. CO was very tough on offense
but the mighty NIL8 defense managed to pull a
shutout on its final match ever! They had a
great, tough defense too but our offense was able
to squeeze out 3 caps for the 2 rounds to make
the final score of our final match 3-0. GG
loss to FOoM|11:00
It was another hard
battle but this time FOoM grabbed the win. They
did a great job of breaking down our defense and
getting in for the grab at the right time.
Tonight's action was also covered by gamecast on
their live radio broadcast DJ'd by Gunslinga.
This added an extra feeling of pressure knowing
that "everyone" was listening in live.
You can download the complete mp3 of the
broadcast here. GG FOoM once again.
Final score 40-70
win over FOoM|8:30
We took a hard-earned
win from the MoOF'ers tonight in the IGL. They
fought us hard just like we knew they would but
our team held strong. We knew they were a strong
team and we prepared ourselves for an all-star
match and that's what we got. They pulled out the
[MoOF] tags for round 2 but we countered that
strategy with our own [8LIN] tags and were able
to improve our lead by 2 caps to finish the match
80-30. GG FOoM as always.
win over CO|10:30
We had a match
tonight against our old friends from CO. They had
beaten us the last 2 times we met but this time
we were on a mission. Our mission was to prove
that we are back and as strong as ever. Almost
every predictor for both IGL and STA had said we
would lose our 2 matches this week because we are
"rebuilding" or whatever. We hold no
ill will towards predictors but obviously we had
to prove to them and everyone that we are here to
win. The match tonight was fun for all in spite
of some antics from CO (probably us too) and a
lot of mm1 abuse by both sides. Anyway, we
defeated them without too much trouble and scored
a victory on our 100th recorded match by a score
win over PF|10:30
Wow I have news to
report after all this time. We took our 2 weeks
off, recruited a bit, got ourselves feeling like
a close group again and were ready to face our
first test after our vacation. PF and NIL8 have a
history of very close matches and tonight was no
exception. The end of the first round of Tempest
saw both teams tied at 16. The second round
started off with both clans getting a cap quickly
and then it stood for several minutes. Then each
clan started trading points for flag movements
one point at a time, then the flag would return.
This continued for several more minutes until
each clan had one cap plus 3 or 4 points (about
19 points each). Then finally PF got our flag
moving and it was out by our water exit and they
inched it into the water and everything on our
defense started going crazy trying to stop it. We
held it in the water for what seemed like forever
and mowed down several PF with autocannon and SG.
Finally the flag returned and I checked the
scoreboard. Holy shit! Our offense had brought
home 2 caps while we were fighting to hold the
flag in the water! The defense breathed a sigh of
relief realizing that the match was in hand and
it ended shortly thereafter. Great exciting game
PF, once again it was a nail-biter. Final score:
We would like to
thank everyone who submitted an application. We
are sorry we couldn't recruit everyone because
there were a lot of very nice recruits to be had.
After some intense tryouts we are happy to
announce we have added druidkin to our D lineup.
loss to CO|8:00
Damn, this sucks.
Roster...getting thin....must recruit....need
players...future...unclear...gasp! GG CO you
played great. Final 15-65 (I think)
loss to 404|8:00
404 took care of us
without too much trouble tonight. We fought hard
and tried to keep up but they stayed ahead pretty
much the whole time throughout both rounds. GG 70-115
loss to CSI|8:30
This was a nail-biter
to be sure. First round I think both teams were
settling into a fairly new map and were just
testing their tactics. Ended 30-10 for NIL8.
Second round both clans seemed to gain some
confidence on offense and started breaking
through more consistently with spectacular effect.
This round ended 70-45 for CSI bringing the total
to 80-75 and a win for CSI.
win over ][|9:30
Fun match tonight
with ][. They were unable to field a full 10 man
roster for both rounds so we had a considerable
advantage from the beggining and througout. Once
again our fatties won the day and proved to be
too much for ][ to handle, especially while Pablo
is racking up 147 kills in one round. Phoneman
grabbed the other autocanon and lended a hand by
ONLY getting 74 kills. ;-) Yes we only had 2
fatties....oh and I think some other people were
playing too and they probably did good.
loss to CNBL|8:30
Well, well, well we
are certainly in agreement that tempest_r sucks
just as bad as the previous version. We battled
CNBL tonight for the Platinum title in STA. First
round our D held solid only allowing the one cap
by CNBL's scout rush and then shutting them down
after that. Our offense was having trouble
cracking CNBL's wall of D. Second round we got
more desperate and sent our 2 engies to offense
after they built their guns but that allowed CNBL
to sneak 3 caps out this round while our offense
was shutout again. GG, cya next time.
win over IKK|9:00
We played a mean
match of canalzon last night. Our 2 fatties were
so tough tonight that IKK thought we had 5. It
was a good test of our canalzon skill and we look
forward to playing it again next week.
win over NULL|9:00
We battled Null last
night on Darkness in our first match of the new
STA season. They took round 1 by a score of 6-2
but NIL8 rallied in the second round with a score
of 12-4. GG NULL it was fun.
loss to SD|9:00
Lost a tough match to SD on the Well.
Our offense had a tough time getting into the SD
flag room and their offense was able to steal a
few caps each round. Final score: 0-6.
loss to CNBL|11:00
Lost to Cannibal last night by
some score on cz2; can't seem to find a write-up
anywhere yet but I can tell you that the margin
each round was in their favor by 20-40 points.
Both times it was pretty close throughout until a
late spurt by CNBL totally did us in. All in all
we did play pretty well, just not well enough!
Good game, Cannibals. No more matches until the
year two thousand one, happy holidays to all.
win over PF|11:00
Nifty win last night over PF to
defend our Ironglove TFC title. Map was
scrummage, and just like a couple weeks ago on
pipezone we ended up splitting rounds with the
Flow: 114-178 first, 186-91 second. In the end
it's the boys with calculators who figure
everything out, and I'm told they pegged the
final result as 300-269 in our favor. This is our
fifth consecutive win in IGL, and we hope to
start a similar streak tonight in STA against
CNBL. GL to all!
win over CSI|11:00
we played CSI for the IGL title
on scrummage tonight, and had a good go of it;
final score in our favor 488-194 or so. nice
match everyone! STA bye this week but we jump
back into action next sunday with a title defense
against Pyroclastic Flow. on scrummage. w00t!
loss to SC|10:00
We had our nice little win streak
come to an end against Shadow Company on 2fort
last night; 0-2, 0-5: 0-7. Just couldn't quite
manage to get a good handle on their flag, nice
job on defense SC. cz2 is next in STA, which
should be a much more enjoyable experience.
win over FEAR|11:30
Another nifty win on pipezone in
IGL action, this time a tough game against FEAR.
Total score was around or about 468-395, but
would have been closer if FEAR had been able to
keep nine in for the last 8? or so minutes. Nice
game to all; next week we face off against the
Crowbar Swinging Idiots for the title on
scrummage. Should be interesting. Special props
out to recent birthday boy NightStalker, who
returns to the active lineup in grand fashion.
