The start: well, Urban Dead had serious balance problems. I am at a loss to remember exactly the event that prompted it, but a large portion of the dedicated zombie playerbase decided to go on strike around December 2005; the strike lasted about a month IIRC.
It was Headshots sapping XP, making it goddam impossible to level up a Zombie.

If you want dates, I tried making an In-Character history of the Nexus War with info from forums, but it got too hard to search older stuff.

I seem to remember the day(s) a large enough pethorde caused the tile they were on to crash your NW, the Freemasons and how Eugene (was it him?) maxed a lvl 1 in a day through amphet abuse and of course the Lich faction with mortals grinding deaths and providing quite the pethorde.

I never actually looked at the forums back then.

Xyzzy and zombie factory. Jorm had to 'accidentally' delete a shitton of his zambahs because they were slowing the game down iirc and the new respawn mechanics had given birth to unexpected results

oh yeah, black holes

this is probably gonna turn into a lot of 'oh man, remember shit that was awesome' but w/e

- pre-rebuild glass cannon revs
- new wardbashing/flagcapping mechanics allowing all-new mortal factions to repeatedly grief established factions that didn't bother with infusion and rewarding them with 60-70+ honour per raid
- bug abuse that allowed angels and demons to fuck around in the same faction (but because of the non-competitive agreement, he couldn't fix it, ergo any waaahbulance topics would get instantly locked and deleted)
- those goddamn chains + Way of Lightning in Purg
- BBoE TSO / OS / Pirates triumvirate
- ELITE FIST OF DEATHHAMMER WING

Who could forget Eddo36?

And everything Toben said is pretty much correct. I can't think of anything that everyone else hasn't already mentioned.

Chilling out in the Feathered Foe, deep in the heart of Nifleheim?

Actually, I can't remember Nifleheim too well. I don't know if I quit before Nifleheim showed up.

I mean, as a dev member, I knew about it, but I don't recall playing on it.

The jaws that bite! The claws that catch! I loved that in the Second Breath there was a whole place just for Alice In Wonderland and the Jabberwock got to have a proper lair there.

Miss him.

Awesome. Thanks guys. I loved nw. Great memories. Just joined nc and trying to find my way again. I joined back when Valhalla had no islands. Think I quit in 2008, sometime after straylight?

Missed the forums the most. And don't like that my three letter name in nw won't fly here in nc....

I have no explanation why that restriction even exists.


I can understand disallowing names with 1 character. I can maybe accept disallowing names with 2 characters. But that's it.

eugene was preparing for the lvl 1 to 30 in one day but the game ended before he had gathered enough amps to make it happen.
