Farewell, Twilight Imperium

Recommended Posts

So way back when, I was a very active Twilight Imperium player, active on the forums and a GM for several online games. Some may remember I GMed the "Imperium Gloriosum" game, which pitted the 6 finest players on the internet against each other (I know Mike_Evans was one, I forget the rest I'm afraid).

Some may remember me from the old old TI3 forums (back when it was still FFG-run), my first post was probably in about 2003. I know I joined the same week as SigmaZero13 - how times have changed!

But, now I haven't played a game of TI3 in over a year (maybe even 2), and it seems unlikely I'll ever play again, so this is a fond goodbye to the game I loved. If you recognise me, then it was good posting with you. If you don't recognise me, I'm sure it would have been. Either way, all the best for the future.

Back in the glory days when every player took pride in their post counts and debated every aspect of the twilight 3 game.

When players realized they could only do so many simultaneous online twilight 3 games at once on the wiki.

Where waiting 2 months to get into a game was worth the wait and finishing a game in 6 months was a great achievement.

Where being a replacement player was taking a hopeless position in a game and fighting to the finish meant an invite to new game with some of the best players around.

Then the forum crashed and you lost months of debates,   No one thought to back up the forum.

The several forum crashes and then the wiki site going down really hurt  the online twilight 3 gamer groups.

Sorry to see ya go. But the decision is ultimately yours to make. Hope to see you gravitate back some day. Maybe when (and if) the next expansion lands.

Fare thee well, starfarer. Goodspeed.

As long as you're not selling your copy of the game, there will always be hope of a return!

I haven't been around these forums quite as long as you have, but I do recognize you as one of the more iconic forumites for TI3.  Sorry to see you go, but I wish you all the best in future gaming! =)
