So today i got this achievement Subject Achievement received: Years of Service (Gold - Level 8) Sent Oct 21, 2017 20:22:05 8 Years of Service! Congratulations on joining Tribal Wars 8 years ago! Here's something small to celebrate with: 100 Premium Points! View your achievements Which makes me both a little sad, and a little proud. I remember a time when id boast how long id played this game, asif it were stripes and stars on a generals uniform, just another way for us gamers to wip it out and compare sizes. But as time goes on i tend to be less forthcoming, perhaps im feeling old, i find it intresting either way. i created the d1 account 8 years ago to play with some friends on w4, dunno if anyone rembers it but i played in bi?. At this time i was a acomplished late game player with the whole "start up ppl are noobs" mentality, (think abdo touched on this ideoligy in other thread), anyways, its here i met grant n miggy on the smile acc, and from thier began to assosiate with players better than myself at the start up phases of the game and inturn i embraced the forums and community, beyond the ego's and trolls many of the nasty fuckers you meet in game and on forums are really sound. But then i think back even further, my tw'ing didnt even begin on d1, heck it wasnt even my 1st uk world in actuality, we have to go all the way back to around a year into w4.net for those dusty memories, all things added up and considering the breaks in play i need the "been playing tw for 12-13 years" achievement, which is testiment to both the addictiveness of this game and i suppose my apparent distaste for real hobbies, commited relationships and sleep, alas, still ticking over eh. anywho, just a bit of remanising and a shout out to fellow addicts, how long have other peeps been around? do i have any oap style competition for longest addiction???
