Hi all, I played this when I was a kid, and just thought to look it up. So how much do you guys play? And how is it done? See you around.

Hi.

The place is still fairly active; there are usually some people playing in the afternoons, and usually some more playing in the evenings to nights. The best games with the most people are over the weekends though.

Some open games randomly, but mostly strict games.

Join us on the chat, #winbolo on EFnet or tinyurl.com/winboloirc

Just be sure to develop a thick skin. This place has degenerated into a sewer of assholes spewing all this diarrhea everywhere, and it becomes clear quickly that the biggest asshole of them all is John Morrison because he gave birth to this abomination of a game and community. Here is a visual retelling of this event happening: http://winbolo.net/forums/viewtopic.php?p=33522&highlight=#33522

Welcome

Omicron,

Welcome to Winbolo, and please don't let trolls like Sak discourage you - the Winbolo community is very amiable and our IRC channel #winbolo on efnet is full of interesting conversations not just about Winbolo, but about topics ranging from politics to philosophy to art to astrophysics and lately, the dialogue on fluid dynamics has been very spirited and englightening!

We hope you will join us on IRC and share your thoughts on any topics of interest to you, all while enjoying the occasional distraction for a hearty game of Winbolo, the multi-player online tank battle game!

P.S. Even though you have a nigra-sounding name, we're cool with that!

I just jumped onto the IRC channel to see if there had been updates on the WebBolo or perhaps an iPad version. A year or two ago, I found the source code to an OSX version of Bolo and started porting it to iOS.

I immediately got accused of trolling. And got quite a reception. The guys on the IRC channel are real jerks.

It certainly doesn't inspire me to want to help improve the game or the community when it's already rotten to the core. Is this why the community suffers? Is this why no one wants to write improvements any more?
