    Was that the place that let you rent TFC servers for free for like an hour at a time? If so, they were awesome, relied on them completely for clan practice sessions in the old days.

    used to play Quakeworld on Barrysworld servers, when they closed that was pretty much the end of the UK Quakeworld scene as far as I know.

    My msn passport is still @barrysworld.com

    I'll raise you.. who remembers wireplay?!

    And I mean the old DOS client, not the windows one that came out about 1 year or so later.

    What was the name of it before Barrysworld, was trying to remember the other day.

    I was sure it was called something else, maybe beginning with C?

    On the subject, whatever happened to the MGON network? Just seemed to disappear without a trace.

    I remember GameSpy as a client before it became some huge gaming network too.

    'Welcome to GameSpy'

    GameSpy and BarrysWorld were my introduction to online gaming.

    I mainly played on Wireplay thanks to a quirk in NTL's billing.

    Our QW TF clan did occassionally slip onto Barrysworld for the odd clan much but the Barrysworld-centric clans were way too good for us. The Spice Girls spanked us about 12-0.

    Barrysworld had good AQ2 servers as well. :)

    Used to play on their CS servers and in their league before it went pay-to-play.

    Barrysworld was excellent - weeks and weeks of tribes playing. The current incarnation is the Freddyshouse forum. You can read why here.

    I remember they used advertise in the back of PC mags.

    Why do you ask? Is it making a comeback?
