Archive only really applies to threads that have become stagnant for a significant period of time or is not productive to the collective welfare of the community. Where there is recent activity that contributes to the base of knowledge the thread attempts to share, it remains open and accessible to all that wish to either glean knowledge, contribute to it or debate it.
As this is a thread that seems to have a regular activity, I do not see it going away anytime soon folks.
If you never had Legacy to begin with, you can not get it now. It is for those players that 'grew up' playing on that format.
Furry, always a pleasure to see you around these parts. We, the old timers, have been through quite a lot since the Java days, and we still hang around. The format changes. The game upgrades. But the dynamics are the same.
I have seen a lot of work going on with the new UI and I find myself playing it now in equal measure to the time I spend on Legacy.
The improvements will continue to come too.
And it is because you folks here have taken the time to try and improve on the improvement of a game we love.
Now, go do, that voo-doo, that you do, so well!
What about me? Do I count? Can I reply and post because I have more than a few?
The quantity of post is not the issue here nor the content, and this is not the place to air grievances in regards to something that you may or may not like.
This is about Legacy and improvements.
As was stated by Slyx, please keep it to the issues dealing with Legacy.
If you wish to start a new thread on the issue, please feel free to do so provided that it remains within the rules and guidelines contained within the ToS.
Once again I find it refreshing to see the exchange of information from player to Developers and back again.
If we want the game to improve, this is a fine step.
Cudos to everyone for their patience and feedback.
Just, wow wutant. Freezy, a game designer who can effect changes, takes the effort to give feedback in here, is here to try and help, who is opening the floor to improvements, and you try to slam the door shut?

I must say, I am both astounded and pleased that those who are or where die harders are at least trying to let time and Bytro prevail. Provided that they get good feedback and patience, as Buddha pointed out in CoW layout, the possibilities are there. I hope for the communities sake, so is the patience.
I would miss seeing the familiar personalities in games, chat and the forums.
Be part of the solution or you are part of the problem I was always told.
Furry, as always, you bring a smile to my face. No horses... too funny. Well done old friend.
Ic3, nothing in life is apples to apples for a comparison, not even apples.
The point I try to make, is that the game remains. Graphics, controls and features change as the player base changes to support their expectations because things in life and technology advance or digress.
I played 'PONG' when it was first introduced. I would not waste the time now to do so, but back in the day, it was amazing.
My expectations have changed drastically from those early days, and simple is not always best, especially when compared to the success of the CoW franchise. You build on success at the expense of established norms at times.
This is one of those times. Legacy, like Java, will be a memory that will rival my recollections of "PONG' as time marches on.
Fun in it's time. But that time has passed.
OMG. You so rock. I may actually appear in some of the old forum discussions, before I did a name change way back when that is..... again, thanks for the info Helgraf.
DoGeeseSeeGod among others. Bet Rage and Godi are still listed in there.....
And tournaments. *sigh* Some good times, along with the old Player League.
Indeed. I did not know such archival photos actually existed anymore. A fine tribute to a award winning game back in the day, and thanks for a fine blast from the past Helgraf.
And, as you can see, the differences are in stark contrast to the Legacy now mourned. Change is inevitable. Life gives few choices, but at least they are choices we get to make: Accept it. Change it if within our power to do so. Get out if the cost is too high.
Again, I enjoy it more than enough to try and relearn a system yet again, knowing that the premise of the game itself provides the same months of enjoyment as it did in the Java years.
Thanks again for the trip down memory lane.
An interesting read so far.
There are a few in here that will recall Java. It went away and the players grabbed their pitchforks and things became a bit 'interesting' for a while.
The player base recovered as they adapted to the changes.
Now, Legacy is gone, as Java has long ago.
And yet again, the pitchforks come out and the discussions are interesting.
I note a few things about this. First, the loyalty of those that play this game. Not to simply kick some rear, not to be smug. We play to have fun. To teach. To learn.
The game is the same as when it was Java. The format changes. So do cars. Phones. Heck, even kids change as time goes by. And we adapt to these changes and still find enjoyment with the changes.
This will be a growing pain. No doubt. But, constructive feedback is what will improve upon the issues. Same as when we went to HTLM from Java, and from Legacy to what is here now.
I for one, will still find enjoyment in the game. It remains intact from a strategic point of view. Just different seats and transmission to deal with is all.
I would ask the vets to find the issues. Report them and be patient to allow for corrections and improvements. We have been here a long time. I for one, intend to be here for a long time yet to come.
Joining a map already running and creating one are two sperate issues. Rank is required to initiate some maps., while joining is limited only by the parameters installed by the one creating it for a minimum rank requirement.
It has been noticed that logging in from a STEAM account can cause delays and/or no log in at all at times. If this happens, a direct log in to the game from the server you use (GOOGLE/Firefox, etc...) to the actual websight may well reduce the issues with this. The STEAM account name created will apply to the direct server log in as well, no need to select a new name.
Agreed Cycle9. Forts above a level 1.5 hide the forces inside them.
A unique perspective there GB. I kind of like the idea.

Agreed. A report of the issue will prompt the Game Operators assigned to the ticket to open the game and review. If violations are noted, actions will be taken for the situation.
I would not have it any other way Hastings. I lament the loss, but understand the way of progress as well. A tight rope to walk, indeed, but the game dynamics remain, so a new paint job on an old house is worth the time to see if the furniture still works with it.
I might suggest that any of the open 'discussions' that may be offensive to anyone, written by anyone find a different place to be written.
If there is a problem with this suggestion, please feel free to PM me and we can discuss possible solutions to the issues.
