Experts Hard Tribute Tournament 2 years 7 months ago #5298

BTPro team announces a Special Ex's Servers Tribute event: "Old School CB Experts"!

Once upon a time, between Kurt and Luukland servers existence, a community was rocking on popularity and gameplay called: Experts Hard servers! - "City Mania" (not related with similar named community).
Were the first pure CB goal games (that I recall). Only desert... And was awesome!! Until, one day, surprise with an Hard CB: Temperate, with a mix of Desert industries to make it (even) more challenging.

A tryout to get as closer to the original as possible, this tournament is a humble tribute to all the good CB memories Ex's servers left on players all over the world. Thank you.

sign me up, please :)

Edit: Is stealing of other players secondary cargo allowed during the Tournament? The first "What you CAN do" picture of Rule #2 of original "Expert Hard rules" allows it.

Nice initiative,

I think I remember those servers but I will have to train a bit to get back in shape xD.
Count me in!,

Solo

Edit: BTW do you know how to contact any of the oldschoolers? I gave mr Moriarte and some others an email bump, however my mind broke thinking of all the other players. Any way to contact mr. Luukland himself for example?
Could be fun to have gL or Janosik aswell, however I don't have them contacts,

Edit2: Go with the good old feeling of 100k loan ST2. This was imo the best part of the whole server xD
