  • The Old TW

    I remember when a lot of the players came on the forums all the time and talked about whatever scandal or event occured. It doesn't seem to happen anymore.

    A lot of the ss sites have become useless and no one really seems to appreciate having a free online game anymore...

    Also, the new players seem to either stay a the very new stage indeffinately, while new players seem to shoot up in ranks due to their "cool" looking name.

    Where were the times when...
    staff would come to just play and not hang out in priv arenas?
    ER's would actually host? wow... I haven't seem a zombie host or bomberman host in ages. (I loved the variety...)

    I'm not posting this to put Subspace or trench wars down in any way, but I just want to know if anyone knows where all the old times went?

    Thanks for your time.

    I think you live in some sort of crazy fantasy world... even more so than the rest of us. Trenchwars and the forums are more active than ever, and who who has been playing longer than 2 weeks would actually want zombies or bomberman hosted? Maybe you just play on the weekends, staff is very busy hosting the league games then.

      Hmmm bomberman was hosted not too long ago. Zombies is hosted just about daily.

        When Zombies was brought to TW, it was an immediate hit. Because of that, we decided to limit it to weekends only, to prevent it from being played/hosted so much that everyone got tired of it. Now we've added a rule that allows it to be hosted during the week, but only if a certain number of people are online. I believe 500 is required now, or something close to that.

          Yes, the current requirement is 500.

            Heheh I remember how long it took me to convince you all that was the right thing to do :P

            TW needs some new games though, the special events are very very stagnant nowadays. I guess 2Dragons has all those new ideas that he posted, hope those turn out :P I have some really great ideas too for games if you want .

                Sure, you may think of them as "newbie" games, but they are very fun.

                      Games that should be hosted in my opinion:

                      Deathmatch (multi teams) ,tourny, base games, dodgeball,gatez,journey, capture, pretty much any jav game,speedball tournaments!!

                      Games that shouldn't be hosted as often as they are

                      Glider,warzone,zombies, hunt

                      Just my opinion.

                        Glider shouldn't be hosted as much. The others are fine. JohnCho, zombies is hosted every weekend. About 10 times. Consecutively. Usual hosts are Matorian and Lefty.

                        Glad to see racing hosted more often. Maybe some shipsets (that are just as cool as Lsd's!) that are only the length of the ship would help x.o

                        Some games that deserve more hosting:
                        Blind/Cloaks
                        Wormhole

                        Less Hosting:
                        Starcon (bleh what a game :/)
                        1:koan> indy is like being skinny and liking weird music
                        1:tRICERATOPS> just a bunhc of faggots is all being indy is
                        1:koan> we cant talk about this infront of castro
                        1:koan> he's going to see this and be like WTFZ im a skinny vegeterian white dude with selective music tastes

                          I'd same the same goes for that too. I've been waiting for new events, yet seen nothing so far.

                          Lots of love,

                            Well, I know that "DeathBall" should be done soon. Probally a couple days. I've been working on DeathBall for 2 days, and wow, its almost done. - And if you have ideas about new games, thats great! You can contact 2dragons about it, and he'll probally post something about events to us (TWDev) so we can probally build it.
