If you remember the early days of Planetarion...

From Round 1 to 4.

Do you wish a return those days? Feel any nostalgia? Or is it just my memory cos I was like 12 then?

When the rounds were free, you can have fun without an alliance, a powerful PDS, when the whole galaxy can have an in-fight, when 250k people played and everything was light, fun and games?

Only thing what I really miss is 6h defence, Current pa's time saving stuff like pre-launching is epic fail so long as you have to work your defence 6h's during morning because defence is only 1h long.

Re: If you remember the early days of Planetarion...

I was in T&P!

I only started playing in round 7, but I do miss some of PA and the way it was.

I enjoyed how much more conspiratorial it all was (or just how it seemed?) and how everything was cloak and daggers. Also 7-8 smaller alliances is a lot more fun than a small number of big ones.

Re: If you remember the early days of Planetarion...

I started at the end of rd 2 (my son talked me into it) and in rd 3 got made GC because I was the only one in my gal who had the slightest idea what I was doing. You cld play as a gal without allies and still do well, I did join the Suicide Kings for a while tho - anybody remember them?

I'm definitely nostalgic, but I think things are more interesting now.

I was recruited by a bloke called 'Ten' to play in a wing of SK called TLoG. We had some fun attacks and a nice community but if I remember rightly a big alliance actively destroyed us.
