I find it a little bit ironic that I'm seeing this on the day that I put up some threads to help us actually fill out the guide sections.

Then again, I will freely admit that I put those up out of boredom more than optimism.

This topic depressed me a little. In a way, it amazes me that this forum is still alive and kicking after all these years and after the majority of the community stopped posting about AW at all. It's sad though, because it does seem to be a community at the end of it's rope. Honestly, I still consider this my main forum. I check here just about every day, and like, for example, I still occasionally get ideas of articles to submit to Olaf's Chair. Mostly because I've never submitted anything of worth to this site, and still feel a little bad about it.

It doesn't surprise me that people move on as our common threads are getting smaller, but it still makes me sad.

I find it funny you claim to be [i]bitter[/i] assholes.

No, you have ALWAYS been assholes, plain and simple. You created a hostile environment with crumpets humor even before getting into stuff like deleting pages that would have been useful because they were "not needed", or simply mocking the likes of Matthew Pyke. And you keep doing it because you know your friends will be equally slimy by supporting you, rather than rightfully call you out, all because you wouldn't so much as welcome it even as a necessity. You are nothing but slimy cowards, and it reflects in how you think Artillery spam is miraculously balanced, because Artillery are totally the Pawns of the game.

Seriously, you think that Artillery should be able to sponge abuse for how spammable it is. It only shows you to be just like Greyfield, in that you're hypocritical darwinists. What next, you're going to order your firing squad to execute you as well?

You are scum, you refuse to [i]even care about that[/i], and you are getting what you deserve. That's all there is to it.

Hi Juigi.

Anyway, it's kinda sad but AWN was unfortunately on the death knell the second they lost their forum database and couldn't get it restored due to madcow not being willing to do it. Still, I feel bad for DeathBerserker, he's a nice guy and he did a ton of work for the site. It was kind of unfortunate that despite his best efforts he couldn't get everything going back around him. :(

lol juigi

But yeah regarding AWN I think PK and Xen summed up my sentiments quite well. It's sad to see all the AW communities fall apart like that one by one. Losing AWN is, whatever anyone's relation with the site may have been, another major blow for the series and its fans. It's true that the previous board wipe was a lethal blow it was not going to recover from, so it comes at no surprise it was gonna kick the bucket. Remember, AWN used to be the biggest community by far when we hardly mattered in comparison.

To be honest, I'm actually more concerned about if its possible to obtain the text dumps from the forums. Even if the site is dead, is doesn't mean that the loads and loads of user content contributed should go down with the ship. I'm actually considering finding a place where all that stuff can be stored myself in order to keep all those hours and hours of custom campaigns and other works in that site attainable by the community.

It is sad. I hope that the tribute to the series we are working on actually still has a community left that'll be able to appreciate it. The forums at AWBW are down as well. That basically leaves here and WC as the two strongest AW forums. CW and BBHQ are still up, but inactive at the moment.

[quote="Everybody else"]stfu juigi we are glad to be hypocritical darwinists[/quote]

The best way to counterargue a point calling out the characters of the clowns pulling stupidity: PROVE THE DAMNED POINT IN QUESTION BY RESPONDING WITH NOTHING BUT INSULTS.

I even enjoy that claim that I'm a "hater." No really, it's funny. You're so desperate to see the game as balanced that you have to resort to claiming that Artillery is balanced through costing only 6000G for how it easily destroys everything that isn't an air unit while easily shrugging off abuse. Never mind that infantry spam, Infantry OR Mechs, would become considerably weaker without how spammable they are. Get it straight: nobody wants to play a game where "you can never have too many Artillery" as you put it.

And you're also claiming to sympathize with Matthew Pyke's death. Too late to try being politically correct, assholes. Especially when you are saying it just to spew crumpets in a sad effort to again be politically correct.

If there's any custom content you'd wish to share with the community you're more than welcome to submit it to us and we'll put it up when we finish the site. The new WordPress site should make it easier to put custom content up anyway.

We only survived because our small size invokes the magic of friendship and bonds/the dreadful curse of Olaf's chair.

Also, how did juigi notice this topic, but yet he does not notice that the majority of the memberhood talks about social stuff without indulging in slimy worship of the golden cal- I mean artillery?

Gip rarely posts here anyway. We did call him out on that offensive poem about Matthew he posted a while back though blamegame.

But yeah, let's please keep this about AWN. Anymore whining about Gip, Matthew Pyke, Artillery or hypocritical darwinists and whatnot and I'll lock the thread. There is no need to dig up all this crumpets again.

Pretty much the same for me. Since I joined late 2007, I seem to have missed most of the dynamic AW era of this place. I like AW casually, and would enjoy a new game/life in this place very much, but... To be honest I'm pretty clueless how the exact dynamics between the major AW forums used to be. I posted a artillery joke of my own this morning mainly because the idea of it being a issue is just so odd.

I'm still impressed that for all of the jokes made about this forum being dead, it's now the most active/last active community left.

I always thought that the AWBW forums had a decent amount of staying power, but that died in like the middle of 2012 or so, and now that there's no sign of the forum coming back it's probably safe to say RIP to that.
