    You'll want to take it out of your Favorites list and off your UT Watcher.

    I want to thank the hundreds of players for the thousands (8350 to be exact) of games played on The Roost. I'm glad I could help provide a fun, challenging environment for players.

    May I suggest Blatanizer's PukeStain - 64.52.83.170, or The Web 209.83.223.253 - for a fun game?

    If you're into DM - try Free Beer! 128.208.57.166

    You'll find me on those. :)

    Anyway... as they say - Thanks for the memories.

    Well, I had some great times on that server, and lost a few hours of my life thanks to you.

    Thank you for all you've done.

    May the Roost rest in peace. :(

    Good Memories...

    I still remember when the server opened last year. I remember playing some kickass games with yall on it :). It was there that I first learned of RuffRider's talent...

    PuF and #planetunreal will not be the same without the Roost. I know I didn't play a whole heck of a lot on it (just a few games) but playing there was a big eye opener, when I left Bollwerk with like -4 frags I thought wow. When I got my first cap in Dreary it was a confidence builder.

    And let's not forget the "cleanliness" of the server. Roo tried his best to get rid of tha llamas and idiots who would otherwise just vandalise the server.

    Thanks for the p1mpage for my (ahem, er, your) server The Web, which will always continue to have your name in the MOTD as long as I admin it for all the help you put into getting The Web playable.

    I will not run Carry the Flag as often (only during midday), so PuF'ers can have a decent CTF server in the mid-USA

    how many times have we said it? I'll say it again... "Thanks Roo"

    Try 950 clan official server #1. I'm in Toronto, and I get great pings there. There's usually a good mix of MyU guys and 950 clanners with some cool maps. The server's nice and crisp with compressed re-directed downloads. The competition's not as great as swine for obvious reasons, but I've had some really challenging games there. Great attitudes by the players as well.

    I remember when Ci started out last year and we needed a server for practices and matches. Rooster stepped in to help and lent us The Roost a few times. Thanks :)

    GG Roost.

    Sad, sad.
    When i finally got a decent connection "The Roost" goes down.
    I have often seen in my UT Browser a lot of people from PU playing there but my ping was allways around 350 -400 so I wouldn't join.
    So sad :(

    Nooooo!!!! *sob*

    I have to say thanks for Everything Rooster. The Roost was the very first server in my fave list and will always remain as my fave. I will truly miss my <100 pings there, and the occasional 6000+ ping.

    Thanks again Roo for providing muTTs a server for matches.
