Dead?

Postby DraconisMarch » Sat Jul 02, 2011 3:44 pm

How come most of the topics on this board have a last post date that's super old?

Anyway, I'm new to AWBW (but not AW in general). I'm looking for opponents willing to play basically in real time. (The prospect of waiting a matter of hours--or even days--for my opponent(s) to make a move is completely insane to me.) Anyone here the same way?

This boards kinda slowed down in the past year, to answer your question. The sites still fairly alive though, and the irc is very much so, so you shouldn't have problems finding a game or chatting it up with us if you so desire. :)

Wait. There's an AWBW IRC? :shock:
If you know the enemy and know yourself you need not fear the results of a hundred battles.

I'm not concerned with finding a game (I can see that there are a lot of them going). My concern is finding people to play with who want to play in real time (and not against people who'll take God-knows-how-long to do their turn).

Also, what is this so-called chat and how do I get to/use it? I tried going to irc.mzima.net and apparently it doesn't exist. :?

PS: While I'm at it, does the site just... die late at night? Because the last couple nights I tried to get on it super late (about 4-5 AM central time) the page simply wouldn't load. (As in, it would try to, but then just stop after a while and do nothing.)

I perfer to play real time games too. Its hard to plan on being online at the same exact time as someone else though. I usually just go to the IRC to see who's online and ask if anyone wants to play in real time.

If you have an IRC client, its on the efnet server and the room name is #amarriner.com

If you don't have an IRC client, try looking through this tread for help: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=11777

People there are mostly harmless and are willing to help new people.

Figure part of that has to do with the time-zone you're in.

PST over here, but its unlikely I'll do a game real-time what with real-life I have to contend with. But its not 100% out of the question...
