I stopped checking that site years ago.

Same.

Hard to swallow reviews about Slitherine games (and non-slitherine games) from a site thats owned by Slitherine.

I'll go over to Network N daily to get virtually punched in the face by Lava.

+1
I hope a new owner will rejuvenate the website and result in non-partisan reviews.

When there are no mods, or the mods turn to the dark side, there is no return to civility.

Lava originally punched me in the face (virtually) when I was a mod there!

You know it's still me right? :P

But thanks - it's very exciting. If you guys play a lot of PC games then maybe you've heard of PCGamesN? It's like a really big pc gaming website (although they don't do much wargame stuff). Network N is just their corporate identity, but it's all the same people pretty much.

Yeah, I understand why people were uncomfortable with the Slitherine ownership. If it makes you feel better nothing went live on my watch that I fundamentally didn't believe to be true. If push had ever come to that kind of shove I would gladly have died on that hill, because it was important to play this gig as straight as I could, given the context.

You would not have been the first under that ownership

I wonder if this will be like homeworld... the exiles returning... well I don't think so.
But still a bit of nostalgia for that place, back in the close combat days.

Wargamer pretty much died for me when I learned that the previous owner had deleted Longblade's Battlefield Academy review for not being glowing. It's good to know that they likely now belong to someone less underhanded.

Does this mean Curtis Szmania is coming back?

His departure was most memorable...
