Man this place sure dies out quickly....
After so many energetic games, this place just died again.

Ah, the ebbs and flow of life I guess. Anyway, anyone still around? Anyone up for a new TWG?

    I'd like to join, but looks like there won't be another game for a while ...

    Ah the old days of TWG... how I miss them... back when NS was a popular game and the forums were heavily active.

    I was just reading through some of the older game posts... TWG III hosted by Renegade, now there was a fun one... my first time being a wolf and ironically with my RL friend slackie. I was acting highly suspicious (though at the time I thought I was quite clever) and was completely blindsided by Isamil... clever move there.

    Slackie and I even created a conversation between ourselves to make it look as if I had discovered he was a wolf... oh well it was too little too late.

    I wish these boards were popular once more and the player base for TWG would return. Once that NS2 comes out...

    Also, I wish I could change my name to Jhole... the online name I go by now >_<

    And im_lost, I'm so jelous you got "TWG Rule Guru" title tounge.gif

    pm one of the mods (like comprox, who you can probably convince of it) to change your name tounge.gif

    you can set your own title.

    and I would wager good money that if you offered to host another round people would sign up.

    Well I'm not really up for hosting but if another game was started I may be interested in playing... could even check if any of my RL friends who have played would want to join in (I doubt it but you never know).

    Thanks for the info about the titles! =)

    Oh yeah, I miss those games where it was just wolves, seer, psychic, and guardian... those were always good times.

    I have only been checking in here sporadically. The only thing that kept me attached to this forum was TWG, and with that activity dying off I became more involved with KoL instead.

    We could always go back to wolves/seer/psychic/guardian, I think the signup thread is basically a "we want to play in something" list at this point.

    Last Time I looked, We where unable to get enough people fast enough ( within 2 or 3 days ) to get a game started. Unless something odd happens I do not expect that TWG will not be taking place in here untilll we get a large infusion of people to this site, or at least some here. The only way this is going to happen is some time after NS2 comes out. I would guess that such date is at least a year or two away, based on what the current news of it is. If someone wants to try and get a game started (EMP had to drop out as host) They are welcome to try. If you are still willing to play, I would think the best thing to do would be to sit in the IRC channel that we have, and just look at it every day. Right now I only see around 3 or 4 people who have joined the channel over the last several weeks. However, this is just what I saw, and I did not take much more then a glance every now and then.

    Assuming that nothing changed, I think the best time to start the next TWG is somewhere between a month or so before NS2 to 2 months after NS2, this is when the forums will become very active.

    As for the type of game, I would also enjoy just a nice simple game of wolf, seer, guardian, psychic, with no night 1 kill. However we need what 10-12 people to make it work? There has been only 6 people who responded to this thread, so that is still about half of what we need for a game. Unless we try the one wolf challenge... That need what 8 people?

    Funny, is seem to recall that being said during the last game... Now where where my logs.

    On a more important note. I am trying to get a poll of just how many people we have who are still interested in playing twg right now. Just hop on the channel and send a message that you are still up for the game/ whatever. If we have enough people who speak up: >7 or so. I have a plan for a very simple game of TWG, 1 wolf and however many humans we can get, no night 1 wolfing. I hope that this small game might peek some interest, but if not I should still have this planned out for around the time the NS2 comes out, when ever that this( unless that is yesterday, then we are in trouble ).

    the problem with posting this here is that most of us who are still around never actually look here.

    I only did because some one randomly PMed me asking me about NS twg (with zero posts)

    It's not an easy balance to achieve, but we do want to make a game that will be both the best competitive game since Starcraft and also one that many people can enjoy casually without being in a clan or an experienced or knowledgeable NS player. That's the goal at least!

    OK, I have revived my thread in Off-Topic, and now I am Threadromancing again!!!

    Surely now is the time for a TWG? We must be able to generate enough interest now? Hopefully through the Off-topic thread and this one we should get numbers up :D

    Let's go for it....

    This seems to be the problem in general with this thread/forum.

    Unless it is top of the list and displayed n the main forum page, no-one ever reads it...

    (edit)

    I started this thread, so get notifications when a message is posted, that's why I respond so much.

    OK, time to do some real raising of the dead...

    By the power of TWG, I hereby summon all players who have previously played/shown an interest in TWG to step forward into the light, for I have a plan...

    Don't cast that spell too often, very draining and uses too much Mana!!

    So the Plan,

    Get as many people back here as possible through this post.

    Make an explanatory post about TWG and some of the history in NS2 general and Subnautica general forums, to get more people here.

    Open a sign-up thread in Off-topic.

    Have a load of immensely fun TWG's all over again....
