    Is it 2 years for you?

    Hi everyone! I have been chatting with some members of my faction and realized that in some days I will be playing this game for 2 years. Yes, very sad! I tried to quit once but my addiction made me come back and nowadays I spend a lot of time chatting with friends which I made on MW. Sometimes I even forget to play the game and carry on chatting.

    The game changed so much in so short period of time that made many here lose the will to carry on. So before I become one more of retired players I would like to check how many players around forum have been playing for around 2 years. It would be great to say 'hi' to old friends.

    Anyway, be free to say something if you are really a Veteran!

    Does one year playing count as a veteran? Deff not a rookie. So then I'm a crossbreed between the two lol

    Downloaded sometime in Mid-December of 2011. In Reallity though i didn't do much with the game until after the holidays as i didn't get hooked instantly and was focused on getting XP in initially

    Not many 2 year Veterans around it seems (more in the 1-1.5 years) but then again the golden units you use to get back then wouldn't even make it into your top 3000 these days.

    I remember my Strategy back then was to build up my IPH to get 2000 Stealth Bombers and 2000 Aircraft Carrriers. I remember thinking it would take me forever....

    I honestly would have stayed a free player in this game if it wasn't for Factions though. That is what really made the game interesting...

    I will say i hope i don't make it to year 3...as i'm sure the units they will be giving away will be 1 million in stats by then.

    I have been here around 2 years. And I am not going anywhere anytime soon. But I will say that I also tend to start talking to people and forget to play the game occasionally. Either that of one of us disappears for a few mins and its just cause we went in game. Lol

    One of amazing things I remember is that some of us trying to come up with best strategy of how to get enough money for Nano, 20m. It was fun!

    Great to see you around Thief!

    I don't know about 2 years but it is pretty close.

    Remember....
    The first event was the unofficial iPh event with the elite base defense?
    The first unofficial pvp where it was most attacks or raids won.
    The first official event was the case event?
    The pre WD scandal of turning concrete into some gold unit.
    The original pre faction wars with sisters of mercy, Royal Navy, and pun.
    Lurking the forums trying to figure out how those guys got 80k defense.

    Ahh, I was just reminiscing with a friend of mine last night how we were level 170 ish and 40-50k stats back in January.

    And Everson, remember the 400 palm trees?

    I remember first box event. Everyone was so excited to play for such big unit.

    I think my first box event prize can't make my army anymore... Lol

    Well since you've come clean I'll own up as well and admit to 2+ years I was on the verge of deleting the game when factions showed up. I quit for a a while too but here I am again. BSing with faction friends truely is the best part of the game.

    Yes I remember the IPH event. I remember buying a Geo Plant instead of a composites at the time with my Tapjoy because it wasn't clear to me how you would get it and i wanted to make sure i would boost myself. If i remember it was something like 100k for under lvl 100 players and over 200k for over lvl 100. Then Gree botched the whole thing (big suprise) and you had to send in a ticket in a 3 day window if you wanted your EBD. It was my number 1 unit for sooo long.

    I remember the Crate event and getting soooooo frustrated. Why would someone create such a horrible event (*Note to self as i try and open 25 now)

    If i'm not mistaken the Boss Event was the 2nd Official Event (Although it might have been an auction event before that...)

    I Also loved trying to figure out how to get a Nano! That was a blast I think it was a very stressful 5 days for me when i went over vault to purchase. Then i was focused on getting those amazing oil Rigs upgraded.

    I can't purchase Palm Trees ("Can't Purchase...you can only own 200 of those") Yet i should also say i have 0! I Was so pissed with gree way back when i sent multiple tickets...with no avail...
