Once again I'm baffled at how many people are getting turned on by this redesign idea. It's like you're saying you hate the way the site is now.

I say the site is perfect and there's only room for it to get worse.

Hopefully that never happens.

But it's been a long time Tom has done a site redesign. Guess I'll have to come here more often and fuck Facebook up the ass.

Sounds like some big expectations, Tom. But we seem to get better in most ways each update so I'm looking forward to it. :3

Haha fun. A good way to capitalise on the excitement of the userbase. Just hope the countdown isn't a big one...

expect a year of aggressive improvements to NG. We have a big list of features broken into small chunks, allowing for monthly deployments vs years of waiting.

Good news. Looking forward to seeing what's in store. : )

i hope they dont change the requirements for leveling up...
that would be such a pain in the ass if you are a person whos mostly here to level up...
granted if they added new levels that would be interesting to see
or if they tweaked the level icons a bit to change it up a bit

(although expect NG to be down for a while on launch day).
FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Also you forgot that Adventure Story released alongside William and Sly 2 (on most other sites at least) so it technically can be considered apart of the few great series continuations that wrapped up 2011. And yes I know it wasn't sponsored/represented by Newgrounds but boohoo.

Soooo... That about wraps up 2011. I really have to thank EVERYONE who has contributed this year because due to the redesign, we failed to launch a single site enhancement in 2011.

This sets things up for a great year in 2012. Now I need to pull my finger out and offer what help I can.

Yeah, 2011 was a really shitty year for me too because of the many terrible things that happened (and the many attempts of politicians taking away the internet).

Heh, I was quite into this for a brief amount of time. I'm not a big MMO man, although I play a lot of single player RPGs, what really did cause me to have a deep-seated interest in this game was the fact that I'm a huge fan of Tolkien, the world of Arda and the lore behind it. From what I could tell, it was far more accurate in terms of representing the lore than I expected and I can't fault it on that, even if the gameplay is fairly generic. I tried booting it up a while back and on each attempt the client freezes upon picking a server and I cannot find any way to circumvent this, so I haven't touched it since, bar from another unsuccessful attempt fairly recently.
