  1. What up idyntx? They’re still operating, but this place has been a ghost town pretty much as long as Socom has been dead. Some dudes were able to get all the servers back online for all the relevant Socoms (not 4), but there’s not too many that play. Maybe a few hundred players and not many from around these old halls. Without clans, old faces, and tourneys the novelty of playing wears off after a few days or weeks haha. Still get that itch once in a while and boot up confrontation mostly now. There’s rumors of Guerilla Games making a Socom reboot, but we’ve been siphoning Socom rumors for 11 years… I won’t hold my breath. I wonder how fast people would flock here if an announcement were made of a new Socom. Ah one can dream. Anyhow hope all is well, what is it you were hoping to spark interest in? lash/smokeosama
  2. Not sure if news of this has made it here yet, but the Socom Confrontation Server has been brought back online in beta form. I’ll post the link at the bottom how to connect, but it is incredibly easy with a PS3 and confrontation disc. We are even playing cold front maps with specialized weapons again. As it makes the rounds, I’m sure (and hopeful) there will be minor comebacks of some of the great clans and players that used to roam these halls. Spread the word, tell your old clan mates. Maybe we can get a UF socom community on the ground again with tourneys and who knows?!! I miss the glory days on this site, they were gone before any of us ever really expected. Hopefully this revival at minimum keeps the glimmer of socom hope going for at least another few years. Take care and be well all. smokeosama/backlash out ✌🏻 https://socomhq.godaddysites.com/socom-online#172f5c69-5b9d-4097-b150-c088cea65aaa
  3. Hey Tommy I remember you and CTU well. Glad to hear there’s at least a few old school clans sticking together still. THM is just getting started getting on Socom Confrontstion again. Servers are consistently holding 200 players at peak times during the week already and 275 on the weekends. I don’t want to get ahead of myself, but with confrontation playable again for the first time in 7+ years is SOCOM back?!
  4. Wow Ron what’s up man? I remember you and ATR very well. What a throwback. Didn’t you have a co leader who also had a 916 name? I haven’t played Socom in few months, but everyone moved from Xlink to a new program called SVDL. I am always down to clown if you get the itch to play again haha. -smokeosama
  5. Do it!!! It feels like the mid 2000’s all over again and man is it fun! I hope to see some old schoolers make a comeback and come play with us. The Socrack addiction is still alive and well! [THM] smokeosama
  6. My heart really sunk when I heard the news last night. I first met Rage during UF2 or 3 some 10 years ago and though we were never close friends, his impact on the community was always present. What he meant to SHO members, allied clans, and the community is simply immeasurable. I personally can attribute dozens of friendships, memories, and hours of gaming spent to Rage. Be it playing with or against his clan in tournaments, the Madden league he was always a gracious host for, or just gaming in general with SHO, those memories and connections don't exist without his contributions. His legacy will live on through the clan that he built and this community, which he also helped to build. SHO's longevity is a testament to Rage. I speak for not only myself, but the Uprising as a whole when I say he will be deeply missed. Our heartfelt condolences go out to his family both offline and online. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. I do not have a forum account on SHO's site, so could someone please pass this message onto them.
  7. Shane approx how long will you all be in town? If I can't make the tourney, we should all do lunch at a place like Lou's (pizza) or Kuma's (burgers). Sent while dreaming of the duck blind using Tapatalk 2
  8. I am working that day and I will be back on midnights for that period. Maybe I will stop by for a bit when it begins. Sent while dreaming of the duck blind using Tapatalk 2
  9. I am 10 mins from the city, but I have to check my work schedule. Sent while dreaming of the duck blind using Tapatalk 2
  10. This. Check therealsocom.com if you need help getting setup. Sent while dreaming of the duck blind using Tapatalk 2
  11. Thanks for the kind words everyone! Casual gaming is uncharted territory for most of us, but it is a venture we are all entering together. I look forward to what the future holds! Sent while dreaming of the duck blind using Tapatalk 2
  12. Many have speculated, but it is now official: After an illustrious history in which 8 championships and countless victories were achieved, the Uprising has closed it's doors. In recent months we had undergone some cosmetic changes, with MikeJaxon stepping down as leader. Jax remained on as a member, until resigning from competitive clan gaming in January due to the grind therein. The truth is that many of us felt the same as he did. We were just tired of the countless hours of practicing, preparing, and overall strenuous requirements of competitive gaming. We wanted to get back to being a family and just enjoying each other's company online. With Jax's resignation we decided to undergo a change to a new clan. The Uprising was his and it would feel weird to continue on without him. I can say without question that he was the most involved and instrumental leader to a clan's success I have ever been near and later, a part of. With the change, we also decided to become a casual clan. Just fun, family, and friends enjoying being online with each other. Some members were not ready to remove themselves from the competitive realm and we FULLY respect their decision to go another direction. With the change over, myself and Exile decided to promote 3 men to lead with us who have stuck with this family for many years, Arcs, Immersive, and ZTailGunner. I myself remember long ago reading Undertow's retirement post, containing reasons similar to Jax's. I said to myself (a young lad at the time in gaming terms), that'd never be me, very naively thinking I'd be playing tourneys until I was old and brittle. Or basically to Jax's age haha (j/k)! The truth is life happens and you find gaming to be less and less important, though the relationships will never dwindle in that respect. I still treasure the friends, family, and memories I have shared in my 10+ years of online gaming, but I too am just tired of it all competitively speaking. When I have time to game, which will be increasing to normal, I want to just enjoy the company of my guys, shoot the shit, and zombie out online. Without further ado, as I've written far too many long posts lately, I want to announce to the community that [apoX] Apocalypse Gaming has been born! We are a gaming family here with the intent for the foreseeable future of being just a casual clan. That doesn't mean that we won't strive for victory in any objective we face, merely that we will not be partaking in the competitive aspect (tournaments, ladders, etc). We are looking for active players who want to win and are down to earth, good people. Check us out at www.apoxgaming.com. Fill out an application if you are a like-minded individual, who just wants to get back to the roots of gaming to have fun with friends in a family atmosphere.
  13. Played the GRFS beta...wasn't impressed. Socom 4 was a more functional TPS in my opinion than the GRFS beta, which should tell you all you need to know. Also I have never liked the over the shoulder type TPS'.
  14. Awesome episode tonight. Can't wait for the finale next week, it's going to be insane. It truly speaks to the show, when despite the fact that Raylan wasn't on the screen as much the past two weeks, the show has been at it's highest levels of amazing. The acting all around is just impeccable. The producers really do an amazing job casting this show.
