Average age of the "Flashpointer"

Recommended Posts

Hmm I started playing OFP when I was 11 years old, now I'm 16.

Damn I was young, but hey I least I didn't get hooked on CS like most other kids my age when OFP came out.

Well I guess I'm the senior spokesman, am 50 now. I started back in 2001-ish with the demo and was very impressed so I bought CWC. As addons evolved I wanted to keep up so I HAD to get Resistance. Still playing today and with all the missions I've d/l'd I should have endless hours of playing left to do. biggrin_o.gif

I'm 23 right now. Playing since 2003. Was in and out of IDF during that time. I was impressed by how similar the "prone" action was to what I learned in the Army. Been hooked ever since. Can't run Arma so OFP is still my favorite.

39, 40 in August. Been into Flashpoint off and on for 3 years. I always come back to it. It offers so much, that other games can't.

Once i am done building my PC, I will be getting ArmA, but I feel OFP will always be worth a visit.

If I have been playing OFP for 6ish years, how exactly do I answer this question? Now or when I first started?

And I have my thanks to Rainbow 6: Lockdown for being sutch a shitty game. If that game wasn't so crap I wouldn't have traded it in for the Xbox OFP:E and then if I hadn't have got the Xbox OFP:E I wouldn't Have got OFP:GOTY on PC.

36... got interested in operation flashpoint cwc a couple of years ago... got hooked on tactical shooters thru rogue spear and its expansions...

so... flashpoint offered everything i wanted in a game... land combat, vehicles.. big maps smile_o.gif

still my favorite game today. play it a lot more than armed assault...

btw... i read about having to have resistance to use addons... actually it is quite easy to "convert" quite a lot of opf 1.96 addons for opf cwc (1.46)...

some advanced functionality might not work (e.g. event handlers) but quite alot works like a charm... e.g. replacing bis standard units with modern hyk us soldiers, same with russian units. or gettin an armed brdm into opf cwc wink_o.gif

anyway... great game... smile_o.gif

17 years old right now.

First got the Game of the Year edition of Flashpoint in the spring 2004, which would mean I was 13-14 years old.

Didn't get seriously into the game until I incidentally met Mad Max from the Tales of War mod team on a Rise of Nations community website. Sent him a PM asking if the British troops in his signature image were from Flashpoint considering the quite resembling graphics. Later became my reference and mentor for all aspects of Flashpoint. Unfortunately we lost contact a while ago.

I can't believe so much things have been released since I got Flashpoint. It seems that the preview pictures of the first version of the Lost Brothers addon pack was on OFP.info's news page just a few days ago. crazy_o.gif

Since June 2001. Few days after OFP was released.

Im 15.

CS 1.6 i dont see how many got addicted to play it. It was nothing compared to OFP.

One thing thats bugged me is that alot of the new ArmA Clans Require 18. Even though alot of players ive met around 15, are equally or greater skilled that some of the new 18Y players.
