I also lost 3 years of my life on this game 98-2000. Too many Zone memories there was so much drama going on that you reallly get pulled in to playing all night every night. I remember all the top clans like DIK, 435, GI, POS, jots, MD.. I use GQ in my webmail so that I'll never forget MOTS.
I am currently a Graphic designer for Cell phones, and I also create the desktop wallpaper for the San Diego Chargers. I currently post on the Chargers website and create cool signatures art for forums. I no longer am a gamer I would like to maybe get into Starcraft2 someday but not at the level I was playing MOTS.
I also own sirbob.com
If you frequent any other forums and were an old friend of mine just post the forum URL, I'll stop by and make you a sig.
Here are some JOTS_MAX pages still standing.
I vote for MOTS2 with next Generation graphics but same game play! all but the saber battle contact.
