One year ago, on this day, I and a few friends (specifically Nicatus and Trix61) had the idea of creating a DarkRP server. For about an hour we sat down and began thinking of names, revolving around the idea of more or less 'revolutionizing' a DarkRP experience, after a bit of discussion, we decided upon the name we are best known by today.
In our early days (first 3 weeks or so), we were always sitting around 15 - 25 players during peak times, and maybe around 5 on at night time. After this three week or so period, we saw a rather exponential increase in player counts, which to this day I still can not explain nor understand how it occurred. Around game Christmas time where there was a lot of cheer within the community, shortly into this period, on December 19th, 2014 we were hit offline for 24 hours by DerpTrolling (Click here), we were left online for another 24-36 hours, and then hit offline, and then null routed for one full week, and then once that was over, null routed again for a full week. Luckily I was able to contact our provider and have them remove the null route early for new year's. After being down for 2 full weeks, we came back online and saw a full 97/97 player count within 3 hours. I found this, and still find this truly amazing .
Anyways, here we are today, stronger than ever holding our number one spot on our birthday, up from the three thousand or so we sat at when we first started. This would have been not made possible without all of the help and dedication from all of the community, including its members, its donators, its staffing team, and its leaders/developers (zack is bouse).
You are all awesome, I can't thank you enough for being part of this community. I'm looking forward to another year of Reloaded.
