    Congrats for getting your forum unbanned. But your honor will not last forever as there are some competitors out there ready to swallow the numbers.

    You're still around 260 posts away from me Axel. You still have some work to do if you want to defeat me.
    And now that Im back, I have the chance to put some extra distance between us. I will not make this easy for you.

    Lol, I am never returning to War Commander Axel. I set all my units on fire a for a reason.
    The forums however... well that's another story. I am quite curious to see if there'll be a reaction from anyone lol.
    (Or if anyone even rememebers me. Its been a long time I've been seen on the War Commander forums.)

    You may still be remembered by few and especially for the famous rulebook. There are at least few members who are still active on the forums since the 3rd generation of Thane disappeared into the shadows.

    Its been about 10 months since I last showed up there, and discounting those couple of posts made in the Battle Pirates forums, I haven't left O_T at all. Crazy, how much time has passed since I isolated myself here ain't it?

    Here, assuming there were no posts deleted, my last post on #3 was on July 1st, and from there I was able to calculate it has been exactly 285 days since I last made an appearance on the War Commander forums. And considering how posts are time-stamped, I could hypothetically calculate the near exact number of minutes it has been since I last appeared.

    EDIT: Just did it. It has been around 413,451 minutes since I last wrote anything on those forums.
    Boring, poorly worded maths below if anyone cares how I worked this pointless number out.
    Converted the days into minutes using Google's Converter. 285 days = 410400 minutes.
    Then I converted 17 hours into minutes which = 1020 minutes to account for the fact that my last post was made at 1:33AM in the morning, British Standard Time. So that 17 hours adjust for the fact that at the time of writing this post, around 17 hours will have passed since this post was written

    410,400 + 1020 = 413,420 minutes. However I wrote this post originally at 7:04 PM British Time, excluding these edits, so I still have to account for that last 31 minutes difference. So 31 minutes + 413,420 minutes = 413,451 minutes total.
    That is how long it has been since I last wrote a post on the War Commander forums at the time I originally started writing this post.

    Man this is a long time ago.

    Appealed. I was perma-banned before, so I doubt there's such a thing as an expiration on that lol.

    I was lol. But the new WC Community Manager, Burny, was kind of enough to re-instate my account when I asked.
    Curiosly enough with no questions lol. But hey, I ain't complaining.

    Yep. Plus I have a new claim to fame on the forums lol. Returned from the grave that being perma'd puts you in. I can think of only one other forum-goer who's managed to pull that off. A guy called Shadow Killer from the WC Forums. So yeah, aside from him, I may be quite unique on the forums having been perma'd and getting my account re-instated.

    Im thinking of giving myself one of those achievements like the ones I make for you guys for a laugh, since I think I've earned one. Thoughts lol.

    Yes, it was actually a while ago I last saw you on any forum forum section. The last post you created was in January the 27th 2018. For those who haven't read the thread, it was about introducing the WC Wiki admin Troy as a forum moderator.

    Thanks for knowing that you have returned to WC. Then, there might be a slim chance that you will become slightly more active on the WC forums in the future. In addition to that, WC has also improved a lot in last year and the current state of the game is probably the best it has been in at least 2 years.

    I can say that most of my complaints for WC has been reduced in the last few months. The game isn't anymore about overflowing the game with content and to release updates which caused the game to be more broken compared to what it already was.

    In addition to that, they have reduced a lot of the grind in game and the event waves does no longer have absolutely terrible xp payouts in regards to difficulty for the monthly events.
