Throwing this out there: Back in 2008, we had a reset of the game - are we due for another one? Could bring some life back into the game like last time...

I was wondering about that - I thought the missing game link was just a glitch, but it looks like it hasn't been there for a while.

It was removed a few weeks ago. Check the HMW Problem thread for Ryan's explanation.

Just do what I've done, reset a few of your team back down to a lower level with weird stats

There are two things I would like to see:

1) Upgrades like we were supposed to have 6 years ago,

and

2) All my experience back since I've fallen so far behind.

Man I miss that exp so much and trying to get it back at these lower levels is so difficult.

I read Seibs' post about how HMW's days are numbered, but I do think that a reset and the game link being restored would help boost participation in the game. I would go as far as to suggest the old alt classes being reimplemented at some point, the ones we have now were meant for a different game altogether. I do realize that this is probably something that just can't be done right now, but the thought of HMW dying saddens me.

Sad to see this game is so dead. It's so simple but so addictive!! I always thought planned resets every 2ish years would have been a good idea.

Even though I haven't played in years up until this past week, it would be a shame to lose this game as it sounds like it may be on it's way out. :(

Missed you too, Sprockitz. You were one of my old "rivals".

BTW, where is this infamous post that Seibertron/Ryan posted? I can't seem to find it.

Probably best to post that in the Problem Thread in GD.


It's not a problem. I think it's time to put HMW to bed. There's too few of you interested in this game any more. 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.

Well when it's written off after a massive lack of input and work from the people then yeah, people lose interest.

I mean I've visited the site for the first time in months since the announcement on a whim to see if there have been any changes, and since there Isn't I will recede into the void. I really have no draw to the site without HMW, which is sad consider my level of involvement and devotion in the past...and the fact that I owe the game my wife, who I've met 10 years ago come January and have had 7 years of happy marriage to, here.

Likely this will be my last post on the site, unless I get news of things changing. To all my rivals...good game. To all my allies, thanks for the help. And to Burn...I think by now I've upgraded to Empress Petals.

Time to toss my boys into missions for old times sake and fly off into the sunset. If things change for the better HMW...well a good number of the old gang have my facebook.
