    I'm just gonna drop here and say that my friends and I are totally new to playing PBEM and this forum as pushed me in starting a bunch with them. We use Facebook's group chat function to send the games, works really well.

    I am still struggling to adapt to MP vs Ai play. Also, playing Quick to speed things up is hard for me, I struggle to mount an offense that is not outdated by the time it reaches the opponents' border.

    I've read through quite a few Blog from Krill and some others. Some of you guys are taking this game to a whole other level ;)

    I'm sure it will be available as a DLC or end boss of some sort for World of Battleship...

    Welcome MrGrandiose!

    It's good to see you, we could use some new blood in these sub forums. We have a number of games that seem to be stalling lately, it seems activity is down... so keep an eye out for replacement player requests or even new threads/games which start up. There is still a small but committed group here who turn over turns as quickly as possible and usually pretty fast! We try to add as much color to the world we are entering as possible, it just makes it that much more fun.

    We also tend to play on normal speed.

    Why is this thread still not sticky?

    Anyhow, for those who can't or won't read my signature, I would like to announce that I am more or less discontinuing the use of my ymail.com email address because Yahoo is getting worse every day and at this point I can't even access my account any more. If you are wondering why I haven't replied to a mail of yours or am not playing my turn even though it got sent to me, now you know why that is probably the case. Please send any future mails and resend mails you suspect I have not received to my gmail address. If you don't know what it is, send me a PM about it.

    Thank you for your attention.

    10 games and not a single turn in 3 days, weekend days, mind you :( I feel like PBEM trackers death was the final nail in the active playing's coffin.

    i never understood the need for a tracker, each game had a thread of its own where players could post they've sent the turn on. I mean you physically had to go to the tracker and upload the turn which is no easier than attaching the turn to an email. In each of my game folders I have a few empty folders, one named "gps to Tigranes" (that I copy and paste on the thread) another with the games password I paste in the game and shortcuts to the thread and tracker, I do it all from the games' folder.

    Ps also my laptop got a virus and is at a PC shop getting a new Windows install, so I will not have anyone's email unless it's on my iPhone

    Maybe leftover active players could get together and start a new complex game, something with Global map, for example.
