A brief history of this game....

A few months back a couple of, well to be nice we will call them less experienced players. asked for a 30 truce game of a certain edit. So i agreed to run it and after picking the wrong edit.(Should have been Utl. Borg, instead of AR) We ran a game. Well its pretty common knowledge what happened there
(if you don't know and want to read about See: viewtopic.php?f=14&t=35292
tho one of the people involved edited out his posts you can still get the jest of what happened)

So i closed the game and tried again.(with the correct edit) This time making it a regulated(more Rules) game on my server.

In the two weeks that game ran I received 28 Emails, Pms and ICQ messages(the real number not exaggerated) From every player in the game(Except LoneStar) Complaining about the actions of other players(Except LoneStar).

So I gave up. I closed the game again.(the game has been since reopened and made private for the 3 players who asked for it to begin with)


So long story short(I know to late LOL) There will be NO MORE truce games on my server EVER. So dont ask for one.

I know we have been down the road before But I have run truce games for years with little or no issues.(AND i'm hardheaded and didn't want to give up on them as I see the value in them)

IF/When JP ever returns and adds truce settings I will bring them back, but not until then.

Ahem. I wanted to complain about 'The Borg'... they constantly targetted my Grid, and erased my Base figs... never found time to draft the email. lol.


You run a great Server (x2)

Thanks for all you efforts.

First and foremost you own the Darn server so why explain yourself? You have all of these emails and icq numbers from people who want truce games. It may take a bit to build that list but why not announce it to those individuals and add an account to a closed game? Honestly it probably will be a bit of tideous work but you run a solid twgs and people do FLOCK to your server to play the various types of games.

Also, thank you for unbanning me. For myself it's probably just best if I stay away because I have an issue following the rules for some reason. Also to the players who've i've pissed off on your server by bending the rules into my favor. I apologize. Being a TWGS sysop should not be about baby sitting some bored assholes who want/like to spoil games. Perhaps a new leaf has been turned over on this end? :)

For the record I also never messaged you and complained... I was actually starting to enjoy that game.

How about you take a vote in these games (if you were ever to run one) if there are complaints and if there is a unanimous vote that another player should be removed, they are removed.

Because when we had 10 or so players in that game, I 100% guarantee you Helix would have been voted out of it by unanimous consent.

And yeah, as I admitted, I decided to take justice into my own hands (in violation of your policies) and got temporarily banned for it. But it was far from unprovoked. As your web site says, you poke the bear, sometimes the bear eats you.

I've never run a truce game. Not because I'm against them or anything. It's just that I heard it required me to monitor game activity and I'm not interested in that.

I have almost never had one run smoothly.

Do not try and bend the spoon. That’s impossible.
Instead… only try to realize there is no spoon.

I've been in some that ended badly, but I have played in literally hundreds and the vast majority ran with no problems. It really depends on who shows up.

I have never been in one with Helix that ran smoothly, that I can say for sure.

Ive run dozens over the last few years with little or no issues, until these last few.... but as stated its not something I will repeat.
