Default Gamers from Abandonia, please read and advise

Greetings Abandonians.

Any old timers on the board know me; for you I need no introduction. For those who are rather new, let's just say that I am part of the "old guard" of this site.

I am writing this post as I just received an email from an old internet game I used to play going by the name of "Nexus Clash". That game closed down a few years ago as far as I know and now they seemingly opened up again. As you need to register an email address to play and I still have the same email address since almost 20 years now, they used their database sent me an email to tell me they were live and maybe I'd be interested to play again. Nice of them isn't?

The main point about this is: why would I play alone? I didn't really keep contact with the other players I used to group with and even if I did it was years ago. If I were to seriously consider playing again, I'd like to have many friends or contact I already know so we can band together and have some fun. Then, the real reason why I am writing this struck me: the only real steady and seemingly eternal gaming site I ever knew is Abandonia.com. It been here forever and the main focus of this site always been gaming right?

Second point: this forum seem rather dead. It sure look like it when I compare it to "the good old days" I remember when I was active on the board. The main reason why I lost interest in this forum is because I also lost interest on the main site when the new games being posted on the headlines trickled down to almost nothing. Then of course real life got in the way too...

My proposition is then this: how about we try to revitalize the board by creating groups of people with the direct purpose to all play together as a group on an internet game? I do remember the time when a lot of the regulars were playing that meat game (which I don't remember the name now) which spurred a lot of interest and activity. There is also the prime example of The Abandoned on that zombie game (link in my signature), group and game which still exist to this day. Other browser games like this must exist on the net.

Of course we would need a bare minimum of people to participate so it don't stall down and die. And it is why I need your input: would YOU be interested to do this?

End of File.

-EoF

Good initiative EoF :-)

We now have a subforum for exclusively this purpose. Go ahead and try to revitalize it with a thread for the game you're interested in, or any number of threads/games:

www.abandonia.com/vbullet/forumdisplay.php?f=141

I myself have never been a lot into online multiplayer, and I don't have a lot of time; but I'm not saying no in advance either :-)

Yup, that would be the one.

If I get enough people to agree then I'll ask people for games which might be interesting to play. Then I'll gladly share Nexus Clash info myself.

I know that already. This thread is about me asking if people are interested or not. I'm not willing to try to start something which will die out simply out of interest.

I also dislike the subforums when trying to get the attention of people because subforums don't show as well as the main forums on the main board page.

To be frank, I'm not even sure if there is enough regular left who would be interested in this to bother. I sure hope so tho.

Actually, I am not big fan of MP-games myself, but KoL is one and only browser MP-game that hooked me. I am playing it still, and have a lot of English contacts in my Steam mostly thanks to it. (Abandonia is sole second source of it. I was lucky with clan, I suppose.
