Hi. I played from 08-10, then again starting last year til now. I'm still enjoying the game. I was surprised when I came back to see there were a couple of changes (changable resources was a big one), but the last year feels like a whirlwind of gameplay changes by comparison.
The political situation has changed just as fast. I joined a TOP stuck between NPO and IRON, wondering how to hold its allies on the same side for that coming war. Then we had some leaks, relocated from the North side of the treaty web and just really threw everyone for a loop with NpO-TOP ties. I left a bit after bi-polar, so it was a bit of a wtf moment for me.
So, Bob is in motion. The physics of the world, and the world's politics. I consider it interesting still. A lot of people bemoan Bob's demise. I think we've got some life left here.
