How did you find VU
17:22:57 Jul 9th 09 - Mr. Barny:

The population on VU is somewhat stagnant, and I was curious about how you found out about Visual Utopia in the first place. I think I found it through the websites that people vote for for BTs.

17:27:09 Jul 9th 09 - Mr. Fordius:

Utopiatemple long and long ago :P

17:28:19 Jul 9th 09 - Mr. Tyrgalon:

yeah it was a voter site, or one like it.

17:29:17 Jul 9th 09 - Mr. Sandoran:

either an ad or a voter site...

17:30:11 Jul 9th 09 - Mr. Trogdar Liech:

ummm... it was.. 3-4 years ago? some website that reccomended MMORPG's and had reviews etc.  I wanted an empire building game, that has less rules than Ogame, which, frankly, pissed me off... and a game that was more than "just numbers."  VU worked.


VU needs a major overhaul though... its time for one.  Flash Programming needed IMHO.

17:36:01 Jul 9th 09 - Ms. Shadowcat:

cant remember how i found it...but was probably on one of those mmorpg lists.

17:40:11 Jul 9th 09 - Duke Pikachu:

i was bored on teh inernets and wanted to pwn noobs.

so i searched for the game with the most noobs on the internet :)

17:45:24 Jul 9th 09 - Mr. Aloysius:

I play Earth2025 and Swirve Utopia. then got bored and find similar games that have some twist like maps, illustrations and/or micromanaging battles. I found Faith and Tiraen then end up in VU.

17:46:06 Jul 9th 09 - Demonslayer The Confused Demon Farmer:

I was bored a couple years ago and started going through MMORPG lists...tried Travian and some other game before finding VU and sticking with it.

18:34:56 Jul 9th 09 - General Zondervan:

i searched and searched through lists and saw this, gave it a try and here i am

18:46:11 Jul 9th 09 - Mr. Polydeuces:

Ajax showed me this game back in the era of isabel, however that era went terrible and I didn't come back til era 34.

20:13:56 Jul 9th 09 - Lord Bishop:

i was go thought MMORPGs and accidentally click the VU link while i was trying to click some weird game, so i tried it and here i am

20:52:47 Jul 9th 09 - Mr. Travis Leiondon:

Uhh, I forgot how I came here. XD

20:54:56 Jul 9th 09 - Sir Belmont The Avenger:

i think i found VU in a pr0n site! =)

or in a soda anounnce.

21:06:46 Jul 9th 09 - Lady Jasmina:

I was playing another online browser base game, and got bored of it cause the game was basically just click-click-click without any strategy and thinking. So I browsed all the voting sites, checked 5-6 other games and then I came here... In the beginning it was hard but some nice people helped me to get with the basics in the game so I stayed in the game.

21:19:58 Jul 9th 09 - Mr. Mcmax:

An add on, where I'm part of the community still playing CallToPower (strategy-game from 'round 1999).

21:54:45 Jul 9th 09 - Mr. Brainiac:

I was looking for something more than what travian, and other sites like it had to offer.

22:26:07 Jul 9th 09 - Archangel Argyle:

Found it through Dark Lord Ponsa and Prince Marduk :P never play a game that a friend hasn't recomended or forced me to start playing.

22:28:14 Jul 9th 09 - Mr. Tavernwise:

I was voting for Attack Credits (2) on Lords of Legend (which sucks), they are ranked #4..... I looked at higher ranked games and WHAMMO! There she was!

00:01:52 Jul 10th 09 - Mr. Monkeydust:

i had been looking for a MMORPG, and tried a few different ones i found on a voting site, and this one was the one i stuck with. although i almost gave up on it when i couldn't figure out the tutorial :P

00:21:30 Jul 10th 09 - Endless Mystique:

from one of the original 3 players in Dark near the end of era 35

01:02:07 Jul 10th 09 - Mr. Justin:

Spud is my old school pal and he introduced me to it

01:09:02 Jul 10th 09 - Ms. Shadowcat:

i bet Zeta is loving this thread!  Hope he uses it to get more killaz in here!

01:37:45 Jul 10th 09 - Duke Drakos:

I was playing Utopia and Earth2025 on the Swirve site and Cave was in my Utopia Kd. He invited me to play VU and join SE(Saiyan Empire). Never looked back. VU is my main game, but I do play 3 others that you can login just once or twice a day and still do well, Global Conflict, Utopia Kingdoms, and Tribal Warfare.

01:39:09 Jul 10th 09 - Mr. Gawaine:

My good friend Brizen Corbin told me about it. =)

01:59:09 Jul 10th 09 - Mr. Arthion:

bunch of guys from my high school started playing so we made the kingdom Diamonds which merged with luna wolves the next era then we kinda fragmented into different KDs from there.

03:07:06 Jul 10th 09 - Mr. Reddragon Ghost:

18:49:48 Jul 10th 09 - Duke Drakos:

rephrase question: "Who is the jerk who introduced you to VU and is responsible for many sleepless nights, you always trying to be home 5 minutes before the top of the hour, pissing off spouses/mates, planning rl around the tick, etc..." :P

18:55:56 Jul 10th 09 - Mr. Samual:

15:30:00 Aug 12th 09 - Sir Struddle:

I found on pure chance I just was looking for a game to pass the time and i've played a lot of other online games similar to this and I just happened to sit down and take the time to play it. I liked it even though my first few experiences included playing with jerks but I stuck with it and I like the friends I've made. :D

09:58:56 Aug 13th 09 - Mr. Justin:

Spud showed me VU at school and been playing ever since
