Hi Everyone. I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm an oldschool TradeWars player from back in the BBS days. I used to run a single-line BBS with a 2400 bps modem! It seemed blazingly fast at the time...

I got nostalgic and started googling around for TradeWars games and came across this game, BNT, and several others. After reviewing them all this one looked like the most fun, was still being actively developed, and had the most active players. I was excited to see that the main game is being reset on Sept. 8 and look forward to being able to start on an even footing with everyone. I went ahead and joined the current main game now so I can experiment around and get some of my mistakes out of the way before the reset. So far I'm really enjoying myself.

It's been a LONG time since I've played any TradeWars, and it looks like there are quite a few new things to learn for AAtraders. I can't find any good comprehensive documentation (if I've missed it someone please link me to it), so expect a whole bunch of noobish questions to start popping up on the forum as I try to figure things out!

Welcome aboard ACK. Feel free to post questions here as well as in the Main shouts. Most everyone is willing to help. We have a FAQ but its pretty outdated. Both me and PJ suck at docs so we try and post new stuff in the information port off of sol as well as here in the forum. We've had a few volunteers on the docs side but its pretty rough. Many of oldies came from the original TWars... I played it at 300 baud I think ;)

Thanks, everyone.

Oakman, I'd love some training and will try to find time to get on that server.

Welcome back, Ack.

I never played Tradewars, but since this game is generally based on it, you should not have a problem adapting.
