He was already incredible for managing to juggle leading a mod and being a doctor for so long.

It's awesome to see just how much has been accomplished. Taking part in the first internal beta was a lot of fun and it was nice to be able to help out. I also recall Sizer calling me up when the Demo came out to join his New Republic fleet. That was a hell of a lot of fun as well. All in all I still can't wait for the mod(actually more like a full on new game practically) to be released. Keep up the good work guys :D

It's hard to believe it's been so many years. I was Thirteen years old when I first began to play Tides of War under the development leadership of Dev. I can't believe that was ten years ago.

I had a lot of fun in the early years of this mod; testing and helping to provide feedback with the dev team was a great deal of fun. Good luck you guys! I can't wait to see the fruits of all your labor brought to light.

Kampher! That's a name I haven't seen in a longgggg time. Warbird here. Was just doing a bit of googling about ToW, glad to see FW:ToW is still coming along slowly but surely. Weird to think we played the original ToW some 10 years ago!
