Here is something to ponder. If you are on a level that requires the use of an external website for a solve, you may not need it.

Information changes, we all know this. Websites come and go and their information may become outdated or irrelevant. Sometimes they even get buried with newer, fancier websites that may not have the exact answer you seek.

If you come to such a level, I do my best to make sure the relevant information is always available. While I cannot promise this, if something is needed in a highly specific manner (chapter heading of a specific book format, or a list that may change next year, etc.) I attempt to make that information available within the level.

As an example, if you need a book/PDF in a specific layout to obtain the answer, that book or PDF is probably available in the same directory as the level. You may have to look for it, if it even exists, of course.

In my attempt to keep ACWoT stand-alone, I want to avoid relying on other sites as much as possible.

If you think you are on such a level, you can always PM myself or a moderator to find out if the resource is locally available.

Quest Name: Rebus... or Picture this??  Meh.. terrible with names
Basic premise of the quest: Each level would have a rebus (with pictures or just words arranged to create a rebus...)
Level of difficulty: Somewhere between Numerics and Alphabets
Type of quest: Inclusive

I feel like there used to be a Rebus-like quest but I don't see any in my CWoT folder (Brain Ticklers and Triple Scoops are there though...).

Levels 31 - 40 / Re: Level 38

got 38, and as much as I hate admitting it... It was easy once you are on the right track with understanding BliZZ hints (damn you!)
I know its not much consolation now, but when you will get it, everything in this level will click into place.

Quest Name: Maze (or Dungeon maybe... I suck at names, so open to suggestions here...)
Basic Premise: The quest would be similar to to a riddle trail but would incorporate a map (think Legend of Zelda style dungeon map). Solving puzzles in each room would open up various paths through the maze, with some paths ultimately being dead ends, and others leading to the end. Maybe with a couple harder hidden paths for bragging rights.
Difficulty: Numerics-Alphabets
Type of Quest: Inclusive

Quest Name: The Arcade
Basic premise of the quest: Similar vein to Triple Scoop Trivia, where three clues lead to the same answer (in this case, a video game or video game character, will be specified which in the specific levels). How many levels? Depends how well this is received!
Level of difficulty: Largely dependant on how much of a gamer the player is, but I'd say Numerics/Alphas level.
Type of quest: Inclusive.

The Original CWoT used this code a lot. Had our own name for it. The image title is a clue for that. Eggs soon follow.

From Admin / Re: Current Known Issues
« on: April 14, 2020, 03:07:23 PM »
Some random members joining will still experience issues with the creation of their Member Portal page.

However, I have made the MP self-diagnose these problems and offers you steps to correct them without needing to do much work or create a new profile. If there is any problem with your MP, you will get the chance to fix it yourself.

If there aren't any problems with your particular MP page, you won't have to do anything. As always, if you still experience any issues, feel free to contact me through PM or email.

Other Riddles / Other Riddles/Game Rules
« on: March 19, 2020, 11:30:30 AM »
ACWoT loves that there are more games and riddles out there for you to play. We know first hand how boring it can be to get stuck on a level and not have any other options.

So, we offer you the chance to post about your favorite riddles, games and other time wasters in this board.

However, there are a few rules.

  • You MUST send a PM to BLiZZ explaining the riddle or game you want to post about with a link to the game.
  • Approval from BLiZZ must come before you can post your introduction post here.
  • The thread is an introduction thread to the games. Help threads will be created, as needed (no asking for level help in this topic).
  • When you add your riddle or game to this thread you must offer a complete introduction to the game, what type it is, a link, even a screenshot of the home page if you like.
  • NEVER post answers to levels for ANY riddle or game anywhere on ACWoT. Even if the other game says it is allowed, is it NOT allowed here.
  • Understand that ACWoT is not responsible for the content, graphics or downloads other sites may have. Visit new sites from these links at your own risk.

Now that those are settled (and may change over time to accommodate certain situations as they arise). Where else do you like to play?

General Chit-Chat / So this is fun
« on: March 17, 2020, 11:24:53 PM »
I recently found out (and I didn't save the articles, so I am looking for them again), that during the height of CWoT Invasion (Invasion 3, if I recall) both MicroSoft and Blizzard Esports attempted to create their own version of the game. (MS claimed they got an idea from a similar game their interns were playing on their break...hmmmm  I wonder which team that was?? :lmmfao: ) Blizzard didn't state where their idea came from.

MicroSoft set up a dedicated server, had team monitors, registrations, sign ups and sponsors. I don't even know what Blizzard had.

Both ran 1 instance of the game. Blizzard thought it was too much work to be worth another go. They did (I think) 10 rounds, with 5 teams and a total of 47 people.

MS ran theirs with 4 teams, each with 10 people. Decided they didn't have the resources to carry on. Both failed miserably and got horrible reviews, trashed on the articles I read and basically said it was too difficult to run and maintain a world-wide game like that.  :conspiracy:

 :lmmfao: :lmmfao: :lmmfao:

CU and I did it by ourselves. In our living room. With more players. Twice as many rounds and NO resources. And we did it 10+ times over.

Yes. Invasion was a LOT of work. It was difficult. But c'mon. The players make it worth it as even through the frustrations and fights and hard times, we loved every second of it.

THIS, is why I love y'all.  and THIS is why I do this.
