    started a topic This Game.

    This Game.

    I am really sick of how dead this game continues to be, how the last update that had any shred of true importance was probably in 2012 when a bunch of skills got tweaked, and how every day I feel this depressing disappointment as I think about how this game just is not going to get better.

    On this day next year I am going to delete all 6 of my characters across 3 accounts. That's one year I am going to subject myself to pointlessly hoping for some speck of light in this bottomless void that is Grendel's Revenge. By then if it isn't there, then it's time to wash my hands of this dead husk.

    This is not an ultimatum to the staff, this is a sad promise from a 13-year veteran of the game who has absolutely no faith left. The worse part is, I don't really believe they care.

    *waves to Chasm*

    I think Wyrhtan was/is working on another client. There's another post out there about it.

    I've tried to login several times over the past year, but I don't use Firefox or IE anymore, so that doesn't help. Chrome or Opera support? Probably never? Oh well.

    Chasm spirit-waves to everyone!

    And I thought I was the only one...!

    But I didn't get drunk. I just got pissed and deleted everyone. On ICO and CM.

    My availability went to pretty much nothing after March. My schedule is stabilizing somewhat, though, so I should be able to spend some more time focusing on GR. I can't promise any sweeping changes, but I'll at least be around to look over @reports and @requests, so, report those bugs and @request any suggestions you have, and we'll see what we can get done.

    1. Log in.
    2. Wait 4 minutes for spawn.
    3. Roll under 50 7 times in a row.
    4. Die.
    5. Start contemplating why I'm a T5.

I gave a full year for some sign that this game could be saved, and we got next to nothing. Not even a reassurance from the staff. That says a lot.

    I just want to say that I have the utmost respect for Ophsidian for trying her hardest to keep her clan--the ONLY active clan in the game--afloat, and could have been successful were it not for the actions of some selfish, malicious, gutter trash that waited until everyone was offline to destroy the entire lair. Not once, but multiple times, to the point she didn't even want to try anymore. Whoever did it, I hope you are extremely proud of your actions, because you cost the game a great deal and contributed to its downfall. Ophsidian, if you don't mind a bit of selfishness of my own, I hope you hang in there just in case that 0.1% chance GR revives becomes a reality. The newbies will need someone as awesome as you to help them.

    I'm glad I was able to be a T7 finally, after being a part of this game for 13 years. Even though there wasn't much to do other than sit in my den or claim an uncontested fane here and there, I was glad to do it as a Rakshasa. Bye folks.
    Wow, thank you Cato. I did wind up sticking around, but the Sanctum eventually fell to inactivity. Then Oph joined Hidaka in a new clan...which also fell to inactivity. I'm still continuing to log in from time to time, for some reason, just not as Ophsidian anymore.

    I just wish we could hear some news, ANY news, even bad news, from the staff. Even if it's an announcement that they're planning to shut the game down, that's better than silence. Sorry that things wound up like this and you had to make good on that threat from a year ago. I can't bring myself to do the same.

    So sad Cato. I gave up several years ago, as you know and only recently decided to log in again and see what was going on. The unfortunate answer is not a damn thing. I will always remember fondly when this game was just getting started and everyone had such high hopes for it. Even when leader bonuses were crazy screwed up and mages basically were only good for cannon fodder and taxi services since we had no offense skills, no defense skills, and no leader bonuses.I'm glad I got to be a T7 back when there were still some players and it meant something. I'm back to T6 now and logging in once and a while and don't see any reason at all to tier back up again.

    This is tough. But maybe the new client Wyrhtan's working on can be emulated on the Firefox/Chrome/Etc Android apps?
    The new client already runs Andorid, at least in Chrome and Firefox browsers tested so far.

    I know the lack of updates has been hurting, but the difficulty in access the game certainly is an issue as well. I'll continue working to get that fixed.

    Don't think you can, GR blocks any clients that aren't the main one when you attempt to use them(Even with the right port and information, probably to prevent botting using triggers)
