I'd rather focus our energies on the areas where Seibertron.com excels. I'll leave the game up for the time being, but it will no longer be in the primary navigation of the site.
with all due respect Seibertron, we can't let you do this. heavy metal war is the reason many of us hold this site so dearly and recommend it to others (not to play the game, per se, but just for transformer news period.) if you delete heavy metal war, what would make this site any different from the others? i'm sure every site has areas they're focusing their energies on in order to make them excel. know what they don't, and will never have though? the heavy metal war. on those sites, it's just click, scroll, read, type. rinse, repeat. on seibertron? we have all that and
a place where die hard transformers fans who aren't as social as others can still interact with one another and bond over transformers during some heated friendly rivalries. no site i have ever been on has anything like this to offer, and i don't mean specifically transformers websites; i mean on the internet period
. no other site is set up like this one as far a interaction goes. i mean news, movies, comics, social media, role playing, and an actual game. it's pretty impressive. so what if the game doesn't run smoothly? life in general doesn't run smoothly yet we still love and strive to participate in it though. i, personally, am one of those people who don't really like to play games online like call of duty or any of those other platform games. it's games like heavy metal war that interest me. the statistics, the text, the identities you come associate with each ally and foe you fight with on the battlefield. the battle hardened transformer with less stats that defeats an enemy that by all means should have scrapped them.. it all still excites me. when i was deployed and testing my heavy mettle in a real war, one of the only things that kept me sane was the heavy metal war. no word of a lie, bro. i created transformers that reflected parts of me and people i've come to know and love in my life. i've created trusting friendships in this game without ever having to type or speak a single word to the person on the other side of the keyboard. i love this game, but i don't want to make this all about me, because i'm not even one of the people who have been here since the beginning. i can only imagine how they feel. point is, is that this game means more to a lot of people than you may understand, boss. this has become part of our lives. it requires no money to play, the concept is awesome, and you can never 'beat it'. it's ongoing just as the war between factions is ongoing. it's a living entity in it's own right that many of us have come to call home. i understand how you feel about the lack of players.. but i can honestly say that although there isn't an extravagent number of people playing hmw, the players that do, are here for the long haul. we aren't going anywhere. this is our territory. please don't sent heavy metal war the way of the allspark.
