This is great. I had a look through the official game site and it looks like AoW3 will a really great game
Possible the best turn based fantasy game ever (I have great faith in Triumph Studios)…
So I guess it is time for me to become active in AoW discussions again. Some of the old-timers here may remember me, and some of you may have played my mods for AoW1 and AoWSM.

Wow... Maybe we can get some of the other old timers to return... I think I was a newbie when Kris "retired"

Enjoyed the AoW1 Lighthawks mod, most excellent!

It has indeed been a long time since I last posted anything outside the roleplaying forum, and even there I have not posted anything for months. I was coming to Heaven Games today in order to try to restart the RPG I am GMing there, when I noticed the AoW3 forum... and now I have used my whole day checking out all the info I could find about AoW3…

I really like what they are doing with the game and I think it has the potential to become the greatest game I have played ever.

That being said there is also a few things I don’t like, such as stacks of only 6 units and the fact that you seems to start so close to the enemy in combat that fast units can close to melee in one turn.

But it is good to be back, especially considering the reason that I am back…

Welcome back! I too remember you, and I too was a newbie when you retired. I heard great many things from you, especially from Jomungur (who is still around, from what I saw).

I'm pretty sure more old timers will return once the game is launched and advertised, for sure.

The stack limit is set in stone from what I understand, but they are still tweaking the starting distances. Make sure you post your concerns and suggestions because they are listening!

Cheers!

Jomungur is still around?

Cool.

Take an old, dirty, hungry, mangy, sick and wet dog and feed him and wash him and nurse him back to health, and he will never turn on you and bite you.

Darn.

If Jomungur is still around I should stop dev'ing and start practicing.
Else I won't stand a chance anymore within a week after release.

Just to clarify, the "still around, from what I saw" refers to me seeing him post a few times in this AoW3 board. So I suppose he's around, lol. Though he seems dormant now or lurking from the shadows (!) *gasps*

<<.<<
>>.>>

And yes, not to sound too fatalistic, but we don't stand a chance. It would be great if, during your balance passes you could, you know, balance him too so that he's not so OP? But anyway, I'm eagerly awaiting to get my behind kicked once again playing this new installment :P

Cheers!

I'm definitely around. I'm really looking forward to the release as well, although now my gaming is compromised by wife and kid. So no need for the damage reduction - it's well covered .

@You3, I don't know if that was a joke, but omg you made me laugh!

He's not a developer, btw, but Triumph should ping him for thoughts on balancing the game.

Jomungur was the top ranked AoW1 player, very few people came close. There were a few very very good players back then who have all vanished, like Jesta, Silverleaf, Der_Waggs (I played my first multiplayer game ever against him, damned near won as well!), Mikail...

He also did a guide for Aow2 when that came out, which is still well worth reading.

It was not meant to be serious even if I didn't know who he was (I mean this thread explained the context but prior to this thread I did not know of him). I started playing with AOW-2 (never played AOW-1) but I never played multi-player though maybe I should have.

Well for aow-2 - I haven't played since 2009; i have to find my disks - i was playing one of the custom senario - it was quite good and quite long but i ran into a fatal bug with one of the triggers and since the game took so many hours i was really er unhappy with the out come - i think i had been playing for 2 or 3 weeks when i ran into the bug.

I heard about AOW3 sometime last year, but didn't look into it too much. I didn't want to dig too deep because it would make the wait seem that much longer!

Now it's 2014, and I'm super excited! I can't wait to dive into the game, and start playing again with new and old friends!

Now if only Kheldar shows up, we could have a real old-timers convention Plus Nojd and Mik, I suppose.

(For those who don't know, Cay, ffbj, Blue, et al were old-timers when I was a newbie.)

I am giddy like a little school girl! Hear me Sqquuuueee!

It has been a long time since I last played Shadow Magic(even though I bought it, again, when it got released on steam. All well and good. I can't find my old disc these days anyways!). Not that I was ever on the forum much, but it is fun to see that many of you guys are still on here!

Edit- Checked my profile. Apparently it has been over half a decade since I logged in. No wonder I had to request my username and get a password reset!

Yes, nice to see you all again.

Think AoW 3 will be what finally forces me to buy a new computer.

Hopefully it will suit my taste better than AoW 2 and SM, which while they are good games failed to charm/seduce me as the original AoW 1 which I recently started playing again.
