    Hey Gang

    It's been a while. Just stopping by to say hello. I can't believe this place is a ghost town. Curious if any vets are still around? Hope everyone is safe and well. Aloha!

    Re: Hey Gang

    Hello. It looks like you were active here long before my time. Wow, 17 years since you joined. I feel like we just opened a time capsule. So you played FH1 or BF1942? I only started at WaW when they adopted FH2. Ha. FH2 just had an update... a labor of love, but I expect a few hundred in the world still play it. A mod has put ships back in, and Pacific theatre (many map conversions from FH1).

    Re: Hey Gang

    Hi! Nice to meet you Melvin. I started playing on BF-1942 back in the 2nd campaign. Sergeant in Fox Co. Allied 5th. Omaha beach and Wake Island were memorable battles. Captain of Lancer Company British 12th. Made some great friends with that unit. General Soviet 16th. Great battles against the Axis forces. We opened my "sister" Olga's Tavern back then where the boys would hang out and talk story lol. WaW was hands down the most fun I ever had with a big group online. I have a lot of great memories and made some great friends back then. Then life took a turn, I got married, had kids and started a career and then a business. Now my kids are grown up, my business is meh with all the crap going on, and I have more "time" on my hands so I was inspired to build another gaming rig and get back online. This was a great community and I was hoping to see more people around. Sad to see this place seems to have been forgotten. Wir3tap is one of the old school guys we recently started chatting again. Good to see people are still lurking around.

    So what's going on around here? Is MFOTS still running this joint? Is this community just hanging by a thread? What's going on?

    Re: Hey Gang

    I joined WaW a dozen years ago and everyone was very friendly and helpful to get me started, (as with any new member). The organization and teamwork was why I stayed. I had Pubbied before that, but WaW was what made the game for me. As a gear-head, I really liked that there were smart dudes that made maps and that coded for map features as well as coding tools to support map development and training sessions. And, I couldn't get enough of battle days. We had 12 hour battle days and I lasted the whole day. WaW had the best dedicated members. Great leaders for the game at all levels; squad to division. I missed knowing MFOTS; I joined after he was long gone.

    Re: Hey Gang

    Hi Pounder old friend I started in Campaign 2 with you and we shared a few High Command spots and many mant great battles.
    I tenwmver A5 and B12 and all the great players and people on this tournament greatly.

    I never stopped wargamong and since 2001 have been active on WWIionline the MMORPG that is free and truly amazing. It's kind of an demolition of what we were doing here. I still think of Avro Hiltz Pounder Trexer Idgaf and so many countless hours of fin o this tournament and site where the mods batlles and planning wre great. I remember Wake Usland and the first time we used vou e comms was on Guadalcanal.

    Do get into WWiionline it's great my gamename is Actonman and I'm long serving in the Axis High Command.

    MOFOTS is God.

    I remember you all, some more vaguely than others

    I've been playing Hell Let Loose lately, and this year I even joined a clan for some more serious play.
