Happy Birthday ETG.

  I come back here regularly for a little nostalgia about the glory days of Wars 8-11.  Shout outs to my previous War team members: Physsion, Cal, Aves, Bacon (Pro and Chrispy, but especially Chrispy), Rapid, Afda, Phoenix, Bas, Hyro, dragon, captain, Rutarete, Drake, and sky!  Those days were a lot of fun. Keep up the great community and I'll likely lurk around until the flash crash swallows everything.

Happy birthday ETG!

A great community has been built here and I think we can all agree that it has bought us happiness in some way. Thanks to all members for being cool, notably war teammates (especially Physs!): Physsion, Calindu, trashduke, Aves, bro, Sera, Zawadx, andretimpa, worldwideweb3, ddevans96 and [A].

Keep being awesome!

Give cake or I start a riot.

Tbh, the game isn't all that wonderful. Sure, it's a nice little game, but can't say it's amazing anymore, since there's not much you can do atm. Arena is broken. PvP is empty. Servers are horrendous. The only thing that keeps it alive is the community. Zanz is an asshole. Yes, I said it. I don't want to hear "he's busy with real life!" kind of excuse, because frankly, nobody believes that anymore.

I'm staying because I literally have nowhere else to go, and the people in this little corner of the internet are amazing. It's also my only contact to Afda. Come back Afda D:

Now for the memories:
- playing BL against Afda and always using my unupped nova poison dials. This deck used to beat almost anything, until Afda started putting purify in every deck :silly:
- beating aether with SoSebow in war. That was an amazing match.
- winning with control SoSebow in trials against Calin's SoBr salvagers. Another amazing match.
- playing antagonbow and grabbix before the immo nerf
- playing the old SoSebows in gold league, when SoSe used to cost 3 :chroma:
- top50
- the old firestall with the old SoG, when you could swarm as much fire quanta as you wanted. That deck sure was a pain to play against.

Elements proved to me that the Internet can be more than just a horrible pit of despair. That small, well moderated communities can be wonderful and that you can forge meaningful friendships over the internet with people you will never really "know" in the traditional sense.

The game was fun at the time, because no other online CCG of a similar quality existed. Today we're spoiled with choice on that front.

But even though I moved on to new things and new communities to be a part of, I will always remember this small corner of the internet where I spent way too much time in my 20s.

What else is left to say? The most important thing has been uttered by others: this community is great and that's what keeps this
simple, but really addictive and fun game alive.

About the game... I like the science behind the game, how the game uses scientific concepts, natural phenomena for cards, like Schrödinger's cat, Mitosis etc.

Good memories, hmm... been here only for 1 year. War was something extraordinary! (But I wrote a lengthy post about it earlier in the 'Fallen' topic.)
I hope the game can survive at least another year to have another War like this! :)

ps: kudos for ian for being straightforward.

The classic question that is always asked on this day is, "Why do you love elements?".

Honestly, I don't know why I love this game as well as its community so much. I tried to set myself free from its clutches but I can't; I have to admit that I am just addicted. I am not that addicted to the game by itself but I am addicted to the occasional PvP event of the game or the occasional competition and the community is so polite and mature in such a good way! Let alone Forum Brawl which I believe it is one of the best inventions ever...

EDIT: So many people coming back for the reunion day. I am so happy! :D

You guys are a wonderful bunch, which is why I keep coming back. Suspect that's the case for several of us. Moreover, I just can't let go of organized PvP yet. The core design of this game is so good, even though it suffers from not being updated and supported.

Everyone, be sure to join us in Blab chat today! A lot of both old and new faces have been hanging around so far.
