    CARNAGE tournament survivors!

    Who left here used to attend the Carnage tournaments run by Simon Tull back in the heady days of 06-10??
    Been feeling nostalgic about those trips to WHW, staying in the firetrap that was the Gresham, eating in the GW staffers canteen etc.

    I never attended (not being in the UK) but Simon (Lavfluris) and I once did the 2nd and final Portent Roadtrip with Rozonus, Anseur, and.... God I can't remember the other guy's handle, but his name was Jeremy and it was a fun time.

    Yes indeed, happy days. I helped out with judging a couple of times and went to a few of the Portsmouth events when I lived in Southampton.

    The Gresham is being converted into trendy flats now!

    I was about to invite you guys to Edinburgh's Claymore event, then I realised that Nurgle has conspired to have that wee convention cancelled too. Oh well

    I visited the first (?) Portent Tournament once, does that count?

    Feels like ages ago...was there ever another one?
    Or did it transition to Carnage after that?

    It's been some time since I miss things like that. I used to watch all the matches CSGO, Overwatch, but mostly Dota 2. Dota 2 was my favorite game, and I'm starting to play the game again. It's changed a lot, they have new heroes, new skins, etc. It feels like a new game, but I'm getting used to it. I got some skins after I created an account on Tips.GG. I used the 76FCEF code when I registered, and they gave me a bonus. I follow the Dota 2 tournament, it's so interesting because the guys that play in them are pros. Team Liquid was my favorite from the start, and they're still one of the best ones.

    You and me both Olive! I did a couple of throne of skulls, but it wasnt the same. I live in hope of a Carnage reunion.

    God damn it Olive! You come on here, make us think that you are an old grognard returning, then you drop that spammy ****! For the record, Dota 2 is/was rubbish, CSGO was overrun with the haxors and people spamming out their dodgy Chinese site link spam.

    The sad thing is, back in the day you would have been banned within minutes of posting that. I would get a warning for posting this because I swore. It's a long way from the Warseer heyday.

    I still miss Carnage. 5th ed 40k was the one for me, I still look back on those weekends really fondly. Compared to nowadays GW was rubbish back then with no specialist game support and a much smaller range (and virtua cop arcade in bugmans bar) but I still find myself drifting back to 2007 in my mind. If this was Carnage Olive, I would be marking you as a bad sport on my little slip of post game marking paper.

    This thread is almost a year old, thousands of views, a handful of replies. No replies to my last post a month ago, nothing done about the linkspam troll. I'll check back in next month

    Looks like all their posts are deleted.

    Honestly, more than half the discussions on Warseer these days are about how Warseer has no new conversations and content. And they're right. Too many forums. Too many subforums. No movement from the admins.

    Another check in. Olivehudsew and their spammy links still exist in the thread so no action there. Still no replies.

    This really does make me sad. I suppose it's like a product bring cancelled or a show stopping. Warseer is tied into a lot of my past. The tournament's, my old career, old friends, events in my life.

    With the site running with no one at the wheel, how long before it falls over? I hate to recommend Reddit, but could we have a warseer grognards sub?
