Wow this game still exists!

I have no idea how this game popped back up in my mind. But it was a fun part of my life for a time. A simple game but hard to master, but once you do...

It was also full of funny people and dramas, which I found probably more fun than the game. It was relatively easy to "smurf" under multiple aliases, and pretend you where new by acting/talking differently. Sounds childish but the laughs and tears were worth it.

I wonder who of the 2008/09 crew is still around?

Maybe you remember me.

I was...

Deboer
Aida
Hubert
Xi
and more.

Never had a chance to tell people this, and looking at the Top 10 thread now in the forums it makes me smile when people had me in a 10 list 3 times!

Nearly a decade ago, I'm sure most of us have married/kids/moved countries.

Anyway thought I'd share. Might play a game, if I remember how...

Hope life has been kind to you old timers!

Nostalgia, can't beat it.

well i haven't played since the tournament last year. This game, while its been fun and such, simply doesn't have high enough priority for me. Also i've always "known" those names to be you or the Adrianno guy or what he was called (I do not remember the exact details anymore)

Welcome back lullo ))

PS if u haven't played that long, who plays as Aida (though occasionally)? Account got hacked?

PPS u should try the new version with boats, lovely, same feeling I had back in 2008 when I found this game. It's the reason I play now once per few days instead of once er months.

Hope to see u around.

Wouldn't be surprised if someone wanted to take over my alias. In fact, that's in the spirit of smurfing, smurf the smurf! Inception smurf!

What's this about boats? What's next, archers and knights? (Those icons where in the 2008 game I remember, just deactivated for ever!)

Next you'll be telling me the map has changed...

Oh you've no idea deBoer, lots of new changes to the game, mostly for the better. The meta game strategy has definitely evolved from a few years back. All of the players now have a higher skill level compared to before. Some of the crucial changes I can think of are:

- Castles reducing upkeep, so everyone does that late game.
- Several maps now have sea fields, with boats so the new mechanics is pretty fun.
- Wonders have been added into the game. Has several effects and pretty game-changing.
- Hex maps: those are great. Completely symmetrical so there's no slight advantage based on land distribution. Thanks to Squeegie for suggesting it.
- New domain at strategymania.com.
- New world maps.
- You can now move your Capital to a land with Castle.
- New titles for a new game mode called Coronation.
- Many other quality of life fixes that I've probably missed.

In the spirit of confession, I've used so mamy aliases that I've forgotten most of them. Here’s the ones I remember:

InXaNity, Whoru, Deimos, Fear, Sirius, juniper, Iamatree, etc.
