Unread post Rebang games/Returning player

I have not played this game in quite a long time, looking to come back.

I saw a post the other day on my FB page about a tournament coming up, I forgot I was on the page for this game. I thought it would be nice to see if the game has changed and what the level of people playing abilities are up too.

It took me a little while to get TWX and swath back up and going. Finding my scripts was the bigger issue. In the end I sorted out it and had found them all.

I went looking for a new game to play. I came to this site and saw a few not many had been rebanged. Great I can get in on a low game day game and try bring my skill level back up.(my thought)

I went to the first site and saw 3 people on line in 3 different games, the next one was the same. I cannot seem to find a game with more than 4 to 8 people playing in it. I guess the community it much smaller than it was.

I then saw a rebang for TW League back up and running again it seems. So I joined in on a game 36 days old with 2 node in use.

Two players Zip and Zep are the player names in this game I thought I would play in. Odd they would be so close to the same name. I started to go about my business and build a little as it was an unlimited game. I wanted this type so I can remember how to use my scripts and so on.

I few hours later a Zip came on to play. I could tell as he was taking out the small grid I had put down. I tried to hail and Pm the player with no luck. Tried to photon the player but my skills are rusty and the grid to small. I thought that might get the player to type to me. I reached out again to try and chat with this person with no luck. Oh well, does not want to type I thought.

To keep this short, the player ended up killing me off with the help of zep who I assume is the same person as one was blue and one red. They happened to be on at the same time and once in an IG field zep podded me, the red player. I guess dupes are okay on this server. Before I was killed the player Zep wrote BYE.

I thought to myself I am trying to relearn this game and it seems like we still have the bullies in the game who want to play by themselves. (WOW!)

The game is not gaining players and with this going on it will never get the players back. This game had 3 players in the game only.

I did try to login into this game today only to find said player had put a block in fed space of 100% debris. Sad just sad!!

This game had no rules kill or be killed I get all that in this game. But really the game is 36 days old you own the world with it been unlimited. You are worried about a small player who tried to reach out for a mentor?

Do we have any games where more than 4 people play on, in Corps who want to teach and up this game grow? Even a game where more than 4 people play on.

Please respond in a respectful way to this post.

Kind regards,

Yeah, your's is a common complaint from returning players.

What you may want to do is to look for the next tournament that has a draft option and sign up to be on the draft team. I guarantee that will knock the rust off. :)

You may want to look at SK's server. SK-TWGS.COM. Try one of the regulated games, even if you join late you are still guaranteed the ability to play and relearn but do read his rules and abide by them. Once you're ready for combat then you can play any of the unregulated games.

Welcome back to the game.
Zip and Zep are assuredly not dupes or anything nefarious. They are 2 people that have been playing together for a really long time. Having played with them I can understand your frustration, they play a very effective game.

The best way to get back into the game is to get in a icq or discord channel where teams hang out and find out where the action is. You can contact people here that you know or simply show up at fresh bangs and chat when everyone is at keys.

You will need to update both your scripts(micro updated TWX and MD released a new bot) and your gameplay, some things have changed drastically and others are exactly as you remember. I'd be happy to help bring you up to speed as would many others, as you noted there are far fewer players in the game today.

Feel free to PM me here! We can have a fresh game banged and walk thru what you can expect. We also often do deathmatches on the weekend.

Glad you made it back man, hang out awhile.

If you want a place to fool around I'm in a unlimited game you can join the corp and get refreshed. Plenty of people willing to help out. I just noticed you were in a turns game I am in. You can join that one if you want to take a look around also.

My site is the best place to look for games:

My game rebangs page always has fresh games on it:

Is sounds like you may have connected to the wrong server for Sultan Bey's TradeWars League. The addrss is port 2002

I am currently showing 3 games that are 6 days old. Bey has changed his IP address, so try doing a "ipconfig /flushdns".

For less agressive play, I highly recommend checking out Star Killer's Ice 9: ... serverid=6

Star Killer has games available for all levels of players. Hop in a builders game, check it out.

Zip and Zep are both real players, who are very agressive.
I am not so sure about this Cruncher character though. She might be a dupe. <Muahahahhaaaaaa>
