W16: A year in review

albul

Guest
A year has passed and many (well not so many) things happened in w16.I gathered here some significant maps that should present the w16 history (don't ask me about the early days maps when every map had totally different tribes in it). I don't have that good of a memory or will to search all the threads in w16 , so i will ask your help to write a short description to each map (e.g. x merged with y, x wars z, z disbanded and so on).
This has been made with the courtesy of moomix1 (w9 player) who had the original idea. Many thanks to those who made the maps and to those who contributed with constructive criticism and descriptions.
Here it goes :

"-XXL disbands
-Boe disbands ,Plight arises on it's ashes , with RatedR helping absorbing the players from Boe
-CND&Center vs Hippos continues
-CND war PIEP
-is anyone able to help me with info's on whether there were any other conflicts at this stage?"

- ORC at war with MILK, though very little gain is made because of defensive culture of both tribes.



Oh and great work, hopefully this will cause a "revolution" in the PnP

i don't want this to be seen as pnp..it's just a collection of maps with a little history in them:p. btw, i want to thank everyone who has made a map in the past because otherwise i wouldn't have the maps required for this. i hope that our mapmakers will continue making the maps so that when w16 is 2 years old i can make another thing like this.
keep it coming guys, don't be shy, tell me what's there to be said about each map :)

All those maps made me feel nostalgic. Has W16 been up for a year now?

Edit: Uh, I just noticed it has been.

It was indeed up for a year, those maps bring back so much memory, I sure as hell have gone a long way from Piep to CND.

We were also at war with hippos at the time we were at war with MILK

Guest
is this acceptable?
"-ORC at war with MILK and Hippos, though very little gain is made in both wars." i don't remember Orc having a major impact in vs Hippos (no offense if i am wrong)

Guest
Acceptable? By orc standard I'd say no but if you want to go for the truth yes.

Don't get me wrong Orc is respectable but they sometime claim they did more then they really did.

are you kidding that was more of an enemy status but not a war, but we only took out about 3 players lol


oh and

"Disband and merge time!
-Phail merge with Piep (not sure about this)
-Live merge with IP
-ANH disbands , remains go to Haznog and Center
-LOME, ~300~ and nRu disband (last one merges with Hippos)"

- NSK (or ~WMA~)/-PRO-/REF merged into ORC

QFT....sorry but its true lol, we took 33 villages from Hippos, admitably it did count as more then because of everyones size etc.....but its still not a whopping amount....

Yeah actually in the beggining itslef =HRV= had skirmish with Hippos, they managed to rimm one of our players. But we were really commited to helping our members and at that time we used to sent def units 2 continets away.
That's when Openeye decided to give us NAP. Uff those were times :D.

-Lofs merges with Ni! to form GUNs, shortly after GUNs declares on Plight, helping their ally ORC

pretty sure GUNs was made before the war with Plight, so Plight declares on ORC should be under "Fall of the Hippos" but at the bottom of that list
-Plight Declares war on ORC

XXL - we never fought any major wars, our biggest problem was lack of inactivity in very early stages, most members quit in first few weeks + we were pretty spread over the map so few users sat dozen accounts until we disbanded. i remember axl and some other LOD attacked our sat accounts (jordash and some others) so ppl who sat them dropped it and quit w16, most of them joined Plight while 2-3 of us joined HRV. "war" HRV vs XXL never existed cause XXL didn't have any active players when HRV attacked
