Island Defense memories

Postby fdas » Sun Jul 14, 2019 9:13 pm

Let us pretend to be old people and reminisce about our earlier years playing Island Defense.

I remember back when I used to not know what wall walking was. I played dt every game and ended up dying most of the time.

My first game i was playing with a 2v2 friend and we both went marine. We both completely walled our base off and it was terribad.

I remember when I used to write down Titan/Builder concepts in class.

Sen! I haven't seen you in so long.


Remember when Sen used to work on this game?

First ID game was on Warcraft 3 with an IRL friend. There was a map with "hacks" that I would host. Play goblin and max my base early in the game just north of the gold. Goblin needed 1 gold per tower with about 30 total towers and ~20k lumber. Whenever the first person died and a minion would pop I would just use a gold and lumber command for the rest.

That was also my first experience with map hacking. Loved the map hacks so much it managed to stay with me till today. You can call me TerminalHaxer

I just remember trolling, and enjoying the game playing it like thousands of times haha.

This community was also there, and gave me friends that were there during some hard times.

I remember when we were testing a new map and I was like fuck it I'll to titan and did stuff that I considered to be basic like buying wards and putting them at popular base entrances to catch basers in the act. I think I broke a base as it was getting built from that and whoever was the person who was in charge of the testing said wow I'm glad we have a good titan player when really I thought I sucked at it.
I just sorta knew where good spots to scan were etc

Also I loved going marine and woodbasing at a real base near gold and then building like 20 turrets and walling with dropoffs. Even if the titan broke in it never had enough hp to actually kill the turrets and it was usually low enough to die if it tried to recall.

And one game I went ultra and just spawned a bunch of ultra minis and used them to heal me god damn that shit was broken
