I'm surprised that no one noticed this delightful mile stone. AE is 8 years old and still pumping on all boilers. Still have mods of all kinds coming out, latest update was just last year. How many other titles can say that they are as active as AE.....GP

It takes 8 years just to PLAY AE This is not a bad thing, either.

Time sure flies. Maybe we can wish Matrix Games Happy Birthday and they will do a ultra new AE game for us.

However, I think AE was born not now (8 years ago), but much earlier, that is vanilla WitP. I really hope to see some new edition soon !!!

10 years and dreaming about a new version!

or even porting the exact same game into a newer, more user friendly interface

Happy B-Day to AE.

Seven and eight years ago, I predicted this game would hold my interest for at least a decade.

Has it met that expectation?

Oh yeah. And more.

I'm very thankful that the community has remained so vibrant and large, with lots of old timers phasing out and newcomers coming in. Probably 50% of my enjoyment of the game is this community and reading AARs and posting my own AAR.

Thanks Henderson folks. Thanks Matrix. Thanks AE Forumites.

Best game ever. Best gaming community ever.

Once you factor in the time spent figuring out things this is the cheapest form of entertainment I have ever owned. That includes the donation to get michaelm a new laptop! I spend so much time on this that my wife says I work too hard at my play.

There are still a half dozen or so contributors, testers, and programmers that still frequent these boards.

Can you guys figure out who's still around?

Happy Birthday!!!

A well deserved birthday. An incredible game and a good group of forumites to go along with it.

If you count its great grandpa 'Pacific War' I've been playing the same game since 1996 or somewheres thereabout! I just retired to part time work, so my mind is getting a bit sloppy!
