NorseWars Site Revived
« on: April 26, 2011, 08:07:24 PM »
Sadly I still find myself craving to play Norse/Fort Wars every now and then, so I hope some of you are still out there.  It seems like the nail was put to the coffin after the NorseWars.com site went down, but I hope that isn't the case.

I went ahead and setup Norse Wars under a new domain NorseWars.net, since I wasn't able to obtain the .com version.  Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get in contact with Mike, so I don't have any of the forum/ladder data from the old site - everyone has to re-register again.  If Mike does ever get back to me with the backup though - I'll quickly restore it. :P

If anyone is still up for the occasional game (or even if you're too busy), it'd be nice have you around.  If you have emails of anyone else who used to play, please let them know too. :D

Holy crap.

I remember I used to be a part of the old norsewars  site.

Don't ask me why but I was going through my (very old) favorites list looking for a certain site that had some great concept artists (I'm currently working on a futuristic first person shooter with a group of 40+ and we need to find some more inspiration)  And i stumbled upon the old  norsewars site and with a little extra searching ended up here.

I don't remember what my user name was back then.  It's been so long haha.  The_Hunter? maybe?  Don't know- ever since i started producing music its always been Trauma Hunter.

I am now totally craving some fort wars.  Will have to go see if people still play it (i hope!)

Wow - I definitely remember some annoying dude named The_Hunter - was that you?  ;D (jk about the annoying part :P) Haha, it's been forever.  Nice seeing you again!

Yeah, not too many people online nowadays unfortunately.  I remember trying to get some games going last summer to revive this thing (both AOE3 and AOM) but it's pretty empty now.

Hmm, I was thinking of games I used to play and then, all of the sudden, a thought to check to see if the norsewars site was up came into my head. Well, if any of you remember me, hi!

Unfortunately, the game disks to AOE3 for me are back in Seattle and I am quite a long ways from there. Nice seeing you all again though.

Well, well, well.

I must say I'm both surprised and pleased to stumble across this site, up & running again -- however feeble it might be!  I recognize a couple of the names, and can guess at a few others -
 @pftq - "NW_Q", by chance?
 @coolguy - I assume you are CFC_Coolguy, but then you never know...
 @RA - is this the same "RA" who suffered from sudden, inexplicable connection problems whenever doom was imminent? If you still need tech support for that, let me know!

For those of you who may not remember, I was quite active in 2003/2004 (first as "Ko_in_DK" and later as "HIC_Ko"), and did a bit of everything in the Norse wars world: administered the norsewars site & ladder for about 10 months, did some map modding & balancing with NW_Mike, wrote the "expert guide", and was even ladder champ for a bit -- right up until I got challenged (and stomped) by "Mythod_Alawarz"!!

If there is any serious interest in reviving/playing some classic Norsewars maps, please post here (or email me).  Given the (lack of) activity here, I don't have any great hope that anything will get off the ground, but it could be fun to do some retro Norse wars for a change! (been into WoW the last couple years, but now that I'm Highwarlord, Dragonslayer, Firelord, Savior, "Insane in the Membrance" and have done 99% of all possible achievements, I need a bit of a diversion until MoP hits).

BTW, I still have my CDs, codekeys, and library of *all* the old Norsewars maps (I am pretty sure I have every variation up to and including 7.1x).  So if I get 5 or more people posting here or emailing me, I will try to set up a "revival" weekend where we can play Norsewars, castleblood, mythod, etc.  Would be fun!

P.S. to RA - just fucking with you bud.  I am sure that you've worked out your connection issues by now  ; )   





challenge - that guy was


Ko_in_DK here (aka "HIC_Ko")

-

For those of you who don't remember me, I played under "HIC_Ko" for awhile

Nice to see so many old names coming back.  I still have my game disks as well - would definitely be fun to have some retro events.

No, not NW_Q sorry.  I came a bit later, around the year before AOE3 released.
I remember playing him though. :P
