I was never around back on TSW1, but I can imagine the impact and changes it brought to the game and community. Thanks to aahz and nomercy for the basis of TSW2 back in the day and as Marco said, good luck to future endeavors for nomercy.

Also.. Friday the 13th. How did I not see that coming for a ladder reset :wall: :wall:

Great news! Unfortunately I will miss the first week of the ladder (Sorry fellow Trouser Snakes), but I can't wait to see what all the chaos is about.

Btw for you WINE users, 'wine regedit The\ Sin\ War.reg' does the trick!

The times when prince albrecht owned d2m and we switched to that bulgarian pvp server wich had insane delay lol.

I remember when nomercy came up with the idea to get server from data center and marco was sceptic about it at first but then realized that BG dream server could not be our home in long term.

TSW2 was born and now we are here :) thx for all nomercy

Memories :-D

Anyway looking forward to another reset :cheers:
