Who actually still plays?
« on: October 10, 2019, 11:57 PM »
I've been jumping onto Wormnet from time to time these past few weeks and I've barely seen ANYONE online. Last night there were 17 people in AG *including* bots and snoopers. I haven't seen many old school names on in a really long time. Does anyone actually still play W:A anymore?

As longest as one panders to old school players and players with high TUS ranking, won't be able to find any activities on Worms Armageddon. But if one is to ignore this, WA is blooming, and no, not just for Russians and mole players. Some of my ZaR games can manage to accumulate up to 6 participants. This sort of activity can last from 17.00 to 00.00 my time. Game is pretty baren around morning and noon for me. Again, if you are looking for old famous people, you won't find much of them, WA have moved on without them. So it is better for you to make new contacts, instead of blaming the lack of activity.

W:A is far from "blooming." At any given time there's hardly anyone online, and most of the people who are on are noobs. Not all, but most. I don't give a crap about TUS rankings but I do like playing with players who I've known for years instead of randoms.

Dear Skunk, people avoid you because of your offensive scent.

I want to play more
Imagine What a Buck Could Do!


I now declare a brand new league (and the successor to the failed Ultra League): WormsRF!

Good times will never comeback ae.

It is rly hard to play with old players nowadays ae, look.. iam 36 family, wife, kid, work..all this made almost old school players leave worms, not cos got bored, but cos no time, if i were bilionary, with no wife and kid id still be playing for sure, ofc if all the others players were around too.

Whats happening now, is the same of when u r rly old, like 95 years, and know theres no much time anymore, same with WA, even if some peoples keep playing forever, kile Kradie playing ZaR the golden era will be unique ae.

Cya ae, cos king!

Does it count if I join Intermediate or Big RR like once in a week?

Sporadically I play online, I tried connecting with ZaR but whenever I messaged them they didn't respond or were playing, the exception was Kradie who I managed to play with a couple of times and he's fun to play with, unfortunaly the community is way smaller for organized play and just playing random with strangers was never that fun for me. After like 2 weeks I stopped trying. Last I played was 22.07.2019 according to Steam.

If you only TURN on WA once a week just to play one of those schemes you mentioned, then it doesn't, you aren't really active. But if you are saying that you can't find any Big RR or Intermediate, then you are gravely mistaken. There's tons of them everyday.

There are married people that have families that plays WA. It's all about moderation and common sense.

Yes I will continue to play ZaR, and show that parachute isn't always essential Already there are people who host big rr with no parachute. The influence of ZaR is strong, resistance is futile.

Most people online doesn't care about ranked games. It is mostly focused on the social interaction online, and the fun people have and share together.

Skunk, if you are going to sit there, hoping for some miracle that old school like IEW, Mablak, avirex, Rambo & franz etc are to return, then you won't find any meaning with WA anymore. There are still competent players, you just happen to miss out,  Try losen up and lose this elitist badge, no one cares.

I received couple of your messages on snooper, and I was about to reply but then suddenly whoosh you were gone. I hope that didn't set you off too soon. I hope to see you again, but if not, it is fine. I won't stop playing just because someone stopped though.

This reminded me one of my old offensive meme post. :D

Sorry, I couldn't resist. ;)

I love the gameplay more than in any other game, so much that I could even play with randoms. I miss old times a lot though...
