Just was wondering who still visits (not necessarily being 'active'). I just came to browse a bit and only recognized a small few. :o

I support the "Save the Vowels" movement. Please, type out your words.

I haven't seen any sign from those, however there should be a moderator who talks with at least one of them, just can't recall the name of that one ;)

I'm here, I remember those times. (Changed my name from ExKing on the forums, maybe that's more recognizable). Good times man. I only come here now and again to update myself on what's going on.
Those days of playing WarRock all day are long gone *sigh*

True, we all poke our heads in to see when that new title they must be working on is leaked, heh.

T'is pretty much the only reason I've still got the G1 Forums in my bookmarks.

As for the members mentioned, Pixel dissapeared what feels like an age ago. Nemico left in the last WR staff swap as well from what I remember. Not sure about Hyperion though, I know one of the last games he was working on got cancelled...

One of them got fired and the other one left because of who know what, not sure which one was doing what though.

Yeah, I thought Neume was gone a while back. I remember Ashley sending me a link of something to that point.

Man I miss the old forums or even the earlier days of the G1 forums after the move. I feel like an alien just poking his head in just check on things once in a while.

I believe he was working for them briefly, something about a single project. He then moved on to another developer, CJ Games I think as that is what it says in his twitter profile.

Guess that comes from playing none of the current titles, once you have a title you play then it becomes more normal to look at the forums.

Indeed, it's dead in most sections as well.

*tumbleweed*

The selection of games looks pretty poor as well, certainly nothing to drag me back in. Anyone any ideas about how successful War Inc. has been? Wasn't expecting a huge following for it?

From the looks of it, then they are somewhat neglecting their player base, I guess it comes from wanting to expand the game engine as they are likely to get more money from those wanting to use it for that big zombie game.

Well just got an email from "The War Z", looked a bit at the background for the game and found that it is the shooter the people behind War Inc. has been working for.

Yes, they have transferred some of their efforts onto War Z, which might I add doesn't look too promising compared to it's counterpart (with ironically almost an identical name) DayZ.
I'm not going too far into it, though it just seems more like a money making scheme, at least compared to DayZ.

Alas, if you don't play APB: Reloaded you're going to have a hard time finding conversations on this forum. It's unfortunate.

Sorry for asking but i'm not up2date with G1, are they developing any new projects? new games?

btw. I've seen Nemico posted something in Nexon WR forums few weeks ago. Seems like few of them still miss WarRock.

I'm not sure if the Admins wanted the game to go away. In my view, it was a corporate decision, purely business based. Obviously the game wasn't getting any better and development on various core chunks where slow, if any development was there to begin with (The clan system and training system as an example). One could sc**** off the responsibility and blame the whole mess on the fact the developers were based in Korea.

Onto your first question. A while ago G1 stated their interest and intentions of developing and publishing their own game, getting rid of any middle man type deal. This would allow them to react faster to customer feedback and provide an overall improved experience. They have begun the task of doing just so with two new games that have been announced for quite a long time, but have only gained grip in the last year or so. Namely Hailan Rising and Taikodom are both projects worked on solely (for the most part) by GamersFirst. If I am correct both are in the beta phase (Taikodom in open beta, Hailan in closed beta). I would love to see them create a F2P FPS with their own unique twist, though I don't see that happening with them.

It would be awesome if they create their own FPS game, but it will probably take some time for them. I really miss this forums, Nexon WR forums aren't even in half interesting, funny and good to view like G1s.

Not to mention it seems as if it's Nexon's Protocol to hire 15 year old's to run the game. The game isn't fun anymore for me, and the forum they have set up there is just god awful.

Well APB is the G1 owned FPS, however it isn't a pure FPS which you most likely already know.

Some of us hope that they have something else up their sleeves for a later revealing, but then again nothing has been mentioned about anything.

I don't think that they own either of those, to my knowledge G1 only own two games: APB and Fallen Earth. However they are going to host those games and some of the old G1 staff do work at the company behind Hailan Raising from what I've heard.

Yea, I don't really like APB, it doesn't fit in my taste. :P To be honest I don't like any of current G1 games.

If I am not mistaken, Taikodom has been developed by the Brazilian company Hoplon Infotainment. Gamersfirst possibly worked on the game before the release on their games portal, similarly to APB : Reloaded. I haven't played to APB : Reloaded but from what I've red on game review websites, Gamersfirst achieved a great work in making the game better in many ways, notably with the vehicles driving. If Taikodom has been modified by G1, it's certainly for the best! :bunny:

Ya, I remembered that right after I posted, too lazy to change it. It was originally developed by a Brazilian company, but if I'm not mistaken they (G1) did the work to convert it to the "standards" for North America, or something along those lines.

Yea, I guess that it needed to be adapted to the North American public. All the written material that have to be translated of course, but possibly also the speeches, the cultural references, the soundtrack...

First one has been answered, the other one is (from my knowledge) developed by some Turkish company, not sure though.

Hey, I was around at the end of the Diva age. Guess that means I'm fairly old now. Ugh.

Anyways, those games in development is news to me. All I knew is that they were developing Hailan Rising and working on Taikodom for a while. Glad that Nemico and Neume are still around, I liked them.

According to some, heroic deaths are admirable things. (Generally those who don't have to do it. Politicians and writers spring to mind.) I've never been convinced by this argument, mainly because, no matter how cool, stylish, composed, unflappable, manly, or defiant you are, at the end of the day you're also dead. Which is a little too permanent for my liking.

Just noticed this thread. Nubby Chakra. I'm older than pretty much all the G1/RP staff now (unless there are behind the scenes guys from that long ago).

Fun fact, I had a giant e-crush on Hyperion. Here he is in all his E3 glory.

Also, K2 Network and Reloaded Productions had a full merger so they're now Gamers First/Reloaded Productions. Thus, APB:Reloaded is developed completely "in-house" by the RP team (which is G1).

With APB:R there is no developer/host mess like there was with War Rock so they can take feedback and apply it much more directly. It's shaping up great so far and honestly this might be a bit weird sounding but I'm fairly proud of K2/G1 as a whole.

They pioneered F2P games based on microtransactions in the NA audience based on the vision that F2P games would be the future. The majority of F2P games at the time were shoddy to say the least and a large part of them were localized versions of Asian market games. Nowadays F2P is a huge industry with many large AAA titles being designed around a F2P basis from the get-go, so they got that right and they've been here from the start.

I love APB:R (maybe not to the extent I loved Chapter 1 War Rock, but there's the possibility of the rose-tinted glasses/nostalgia bias) and it's coming along well so I'll be here with G1 for quite a while to come now. Now that I think about it, I've been "with" this company for about a third of my life and have made a large number of friends through its games. That's a large chunk of time and I don't regret it in the slightest.

When I'm rich and famous I'm going to track down the original dev team behind War Rock and pay them millions to make another.

I'm not sure how much I'd look forward to a second War Rock made by the current or another inexperienced future dev team to be honest.

It would be awesome if they create their own FPS game, but it will probably take some time for them. I really miss this forums, Nexon WR forums aren't even in half interesting, funny and good to view like G1s.

Also Nexon's forums burn holes in my eyes with that white background.

No he's not. I'm pretty sure he's given up on the game, as most of us have.
