    The Game is awesome i love the game,i had alot fun and stil haveing fun,but the sad part of my memory is that there are not enough with GM's that online in the game,and that they let people get away with bully others and curse at people,and wrong people get permanet banned or chat banned becuse of just GM see what GM want to see and dont care for the 2side story,even when u give proof,any how i meet alot haters and lovers and friends.but wish fw took back the freedom harbour wich everyone love and miss alot,becuse that where all the lovers friend haters meet for the first time.

    We know that these things happen at times. There will be fights because after all we are a large and diverse group of people! It's my aim at least to make sure that everyone is having a safe and good time I wish there were more of me to go around, but I have to make do with the me that I have. Excellent comment my friend.

    Golly you guys, I cant wait until we deploy the anniversary packs... and other surprises... THEY'RE COMING!!!

    my best memories are from the beginning of game, when there was always something new to learn and many things were challenging, leveling was fun and much harder, and i liked it that way, even tho iv been playing on and off since the release of game, i still enjoy it to this day

    Ill share a few different things here:

    - The days of TOK and GOS actually being hard. And by hard i mean people rage quitting parties, liberal uses of the F word and literally begging people to run GOS. OH, and having to do said GOS to break the soul gate :)

    - Getting happy to buy level 3 gems at less than 1D when you spent 2-3 days farming mats to earn the 1D to have that shiny new gem in your gear.

    - GT1 and the massive amounts of mentor points you could get from it. There was never a shortage of players to run mentored.

    - Farming FF once a week for the 100 Wargod points to get the 75 gear to have a standing chance in FF.

    - the Nova Pack and the forum wildfire that ensued from players that were furious. One would have thought the world itself was burning down.

    My best experience way back Freedom harbor was around. I use to have a love partner that time and we are like dating in forsaken world. There was a nice spot at Lunagrant that we use to fish and picnic. Mentors and Apprentice was also fun cause we make new friends. Also before the instance thing that needs cooperation of high level players which gives them benefit it was really a good thing cause lowbie was recognize hope that will be back..

    Too be continue...

    Hey everyone!

    I love to watch old screenies, I kept all of them since 2011 and took this opportunity to look through them again. Here a few highlights of what I loved most in this game.

    One of my first times in Arena of Souls. It was still really difficult and we didn't manage to finish it. But I loved to go explore instances together with my guild, it was just a lot of fun. Fashion is also a major highlight for me, here I already got my first fashion dress! This was in July 2011.

    On the city square in Freedom Harbor were always people around. People were just chatting or duelling, it was a great place to get together! This was in September 2012.

    And also on the square, random party's regularly! For the most part the people on Forsaken World (Nyos server) were a fun community. I do miss this crowded square and random get-together's. This was in July 2013.

    And dang it's already July 2016 now! Time flies by so fast. Unfortunately the game got a lot less crowded, on the Nyos server at least. But I do have a loooot of great memories (and friends) from this game. Thanks for that!

    In my six years with having forsaken the year I was in Chinese. The experience was pleasant. Adelant from 2010, had friends and enemies like everyone else. Having your own guild even a small but faithful to their mission to progress. Make high-risk instances as they were expanding and addressing unique experiences with my friends that I consider almost like my familia.Estando in eryda server already had the first experience of marriage that lasted two years from 2011, after the birth there lionheart in 2012 the pass was hard but satisfying as it would pass a pvE server and would be more relaxed. Turned out to be quite the opposite. The ongoing battle and every day making gold to arm themselves in the case of not being kosher. We helped each other all to progress and become stronger every day. Now being in 2016 almost the goal of all who grew up together and new friends I met progressing on par beside me complete. The kindness of the beyond gms of events that try to make this all right and online. And always naughty they are repeated every year. Because now I find myself married to my real life partner in the game and yet we continue to share experience every day Well I finally earned the 6 years 1 and 5 Chinese international forsaken happened to be a fundamental part of my life

    Been playing this game since january 2012, made so many memories its kinda hard to name them all. Met so many nice people who made this gaming experience a bit less boring, but if I had to choose one of those moments to keep with me, I think it would be the day I joined my current guild. Been in there for over 3 years now and even though we had some ups and downs, I wouldnt change or swap it for any other.
    Its the only place I can call home whenever I'm playing FW, the people in there are amazing, people I can even talk to in real life, and we all helped each other somehow.
    I just wanna thank you all, Sky, for the amazing memories we all made in all these years. For many more (hopefully) to come.

    Some pictures from our last day in FH; some people are no longer with us, but we still had so much fun back then. You're all amazing ~

    Well, I am playing Forsaken World since 2012 and I really love the gameplay and the effects of skills and the pets and the mounts and the fashion and being able to meet new ppl that love the game as much as I do. I have a few memorable moments on FW and I wish all of the FW players and community a HAPPY 5TH ANNIVERSARY. And may this continue like this for many years to come

    I havnt been in game since the beginning, but I feel like I've made alot of memories with lots of fun people ^.^

    I remember getting my first guild invite, while running around Sea of Oblivion trying to figure things out. I was so excited and so many guildies were willing to help me out. And though some of us have parted ways or left game, I still miss and remember those times with a smile.

    Our noobie mm's chillen together in Nightmare Carnival

    I love looking back at old screenshots, and remembering how tiny and nab my toons used to be, how far they've come, and who helped me along the way.

    My very first rift. I thought the crowd around the manager was huge! I was like "lmao whats going on?" Now I rift every week xD I still appreciate Haven for showing me the ropes

    This one might be my favorite, though maybe a little bittersweet. Everyone gathered to say goodbye to Freedom Harbor and dance and chill. Its funny looking back on this one, seeing all the people and friends who've left and all the friends I now have that used to be strangers. I think my favorite thing about the game may be the people and players more so than the game itself!

    I start playing 3/2011. Try - a mistake, because I never learn English. It was difficult for me. When I start playing, know a single word, "hi". Not knowing well even now, but people tolerate me. For such a long time I have a lot of friends here. They not solve it. Who wants to understand. It was a long and hard journey. Every update I have to learn everything, because it is more difficult for someone like me. But I'm still here. My goal was to create awesome healer. I'm online every day and I still have a lot of work. There is still a lot of things I want to improve. Meet good people here, someone to disappoint me, someone to surprise. Cassandra teach me, I can never forget .... if you make me angry, you surely die .... hehe: D Do not forget to BenUng my husband in game, to leave the game and disappoint me. I always appreciate Gini, Gio, Vepigi, CVC, EvilSheep, Woezi, Tyall, vamesul who help me a lot. The game and the people here to help me survive the hard times. When die my parents. I love you all ♥

    Been with Forsaken World since the closed beta days, I have seen lots of changes through the years good and bad. These 5 years have been full of fun people on Storm server. The guild I am with was created the first day FW went live and we are still here. We have lost some people of the years but we are still around. So from all the people in HELLFIRE Happy 5th Anniversary Fprsaken World and keep up the good work.

    I remember all the people who had played with me in the past, all the people who had gone to better places.
    Hours we spent with people trying to clear forgotten prison when it first came out.
    Times when we fought for Eternal Belief Vexxers every week.
    Those 4 hours we took every week just to try and coordinate a raid team to kill komog, when it first came out.
    There is just too much memories, down the 5 year memory lane.

    ahh Beta how sweet u were and the first few months then after that first year things started to side into a bit of a paywall cashgrab. So onward to new things, then the change and the confusion with quest paths etc.
    tried my best to stay interested but paywalls arent my cup of tea. so i log in every few weeks for a few hours for a stroll around.

    Everytime you find a random group that gets its act together intuitively without talking or writing much is a great moment in a game. Being undergeared but stubborn enough, noone letting the others down even if the damn monsters take over 2 hours to go down abd you keep on dying trying to bring the group through is another great experience. This keeps happening every now and then and its those unnamed player heroes that take you over every downside, its these great people it is worth playing and striving for.
    Whatever the game does and whatever is done to the game, as long as there still is a chance to meet great people in this virtual world, it will always be worth going on.

    Who is this "general failure" and why is he reading my disc ?[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]

    theres been a lot of ups and downs these past years but there were always things that i enjoyed. i joined a lot of guilds, participated in a lot of activities and saw a lot of great guilds also die after a long time wich often broke my heart.
    i started playing this game in closed beta and my Bard wasnt actually my first choice. (i thought bards are too complicated and i would never remember thoose cords LOL!) so my reason for playing was actually for the vamp class...wich i played for closed beta and maybe 3 weeks after then i got bored and made a warrior...THEN i got bored and finally made my Bard wich is still my main since may 2011 xD

    as i started playing, my real life sister AlexejRomanov decided to join and so we ended up being married till end of 2015 (she quit there, sad enough q.q) so i was stuck alone unable to quit cause im too attached to my toon, wich is mostly the reason im still around since everyone of my close friends quit ages ago *sigh
    nontheless im still in hope to get more active again. ive had many breaks, tried many mmos but i dont know what it is...FW always pulls me back!

    Back then...when LH was still a challenge O_O

    My sister joined the game with my baby bard!

    First pair of lvl 1 wings achieved!

    lvl2 wings achievement unlocked!

    I was searching for a game to try and a few graphics pushed me to discover Forsaken World and I got acquainted with the game. I also discovered teamwork through the gameplay. This game is awesome, smooth and it's a real pleasure to spend some time on it.

    Thanks for the nice game.

    Forsaken world is maybe not one of the best games but to me it is a great game; I have met some amazing people throughout my time here and i have made life time friends here. - I have had many fantastic moments here which i will cherish. I have achieved so much what i thought i would never do; but i thank that for my amazing friends and guild

    BoobiePandieButts! :D

    The Forsaken World team does a great job for keeping events active like the one what is currently on now; but the only bad thing i would say about this game is that it doesnt respond to bug fixes fast enough if ever but nevermind ay; Still love this game.

    Happy 5th Anniversary
