I added three new threads, and found another tidbit in the hunt for Vieil Homme.

Confused

If you're as desperate for them as you sound, it seems like you'd be willing to shell out whatever it took to get them. This thread isn't the right place to post that demand.

Subject: Eras of Miniature Trading   PostPosted: Fri Dec 09, 2016 8:09 pm Reply with quote

This is pretty random, but seems like it should go in this thread.

I feel like there have been distinct phases of the forum:

1. The "in-print" years (2004-2008)
The game was still in production, and the forums were filled with set previews, discussions once a set was released, and general thoughts (sometimes positive, sometimes negative) on the job Wizkids was doing. The fleets and reviews sections were lively, while updated rules and new keywords/game mechanics kept things interesting.

2. The "collector" and false hope years (2008-2012)
After the demise of Wizkids in late 2008, there was tons of uncertainty concerning the game's future, how prices would be affected, and what it meant for the game's base of players and collectors. Then NECA purchased the rights to Pirates in 2009. These years also saw an interesting time period for collectors, with the game being out-of-print for the first time. 2 of the possible 4 mysterious "Ships in a Bottle" found their way into the hands of an old_man, while drama reigned in the world of the Obago Deuces. In 2012 a cards-only "relaunch" was released to much general dismay. Some may consider this the final nail in the coffin, while it could also be considered a positive.

3. The "player" and discussion/reflection years (2013-present)
As the anniversaries of the game's demise passed, many collectors completed their collections or left the game entirely. A new era of battle reports was born, with many epic campaign games being played, mostly by a7xfanben and xerecs. Many fleet challenges have taken place, and some were even played out on the VASSAL module. This is also the era of the "megathread", with many threads reaching massive numbers of pages and replies. The forum offers a great variety of topics on the game, perhaps the most diverse in its history.

4. ????
Likely a continuation of the latest era, with emphasis on keeping the game alive through teaching new players, taking full advantage of the VASSAL module, and keeping the forum active and awesome.

I plan to update this with more Rankings threads at the end of each cycle we have of them (once the SS Top 10 is posted). At that time it will be easy to make a new comprehensive Rankings thread as well, or just update the old one.
