Hello everyone

I'm very excited to announce that today marks Revora's 10th anniversary. We're still alive and kicking after all these years!

Revora was introduced at the end of June 2004 by merger of the C&C Guild and the Origin Network. A week later, the process of merging the databases was complete and Revora was officially born. All these years we've supported mods and other creative projects by giving them a home on the world wide web. Some projects have since moved and found new homes, some were cancelled and many are still successful today. All of them have given their creators and user endless hours of joy (and, at times, frustration).

One of our most recent endeavours has been T3A:Online, a re-implementation of the abandoned GameSpy-powered online multiplayer servers for the Battle for Middle-earth series, in September 2013. This marked a new chapter in Revora's history, using our skill to improve the multiplayer experience for all enthusiastic players.
The work on this server has put us in the very fortunate position that we are prepared for the imminent total shutdown of GameSpy and the loss of online multiplayer functionality for the modern Command & Conquer series. Games affected are C&C Generals and Zero Hour, C&C3 Tiberium Wars and Kane's Wrath as well as C&C Red Alert 3. We can proudly say that our C&C:Online server is ready even before GameSpy has gone offline!

But Revora has never just been about our projects: we are very proud of our vibrant and international community and Revora has played an important part in many people's lives. As life goes, many then-teenagers have grown up and left their Revora years behind, becoming working adults. Others remain here until today - like me. I joined Revora in August 2005 at the age of 15, interested in modding BFME. Over the years I've had the pleasure to support Revora in various positions, eventually becoming Network Leader. And I hope to serve this  community of excellent people for many more years, in one way or another.

In the name of the entire Revora staff I want to thank you for your support over the last 10 years and invite old and new members alike to celebrate this anniversary with us and share your Revora stories here.

And to our American friends: happy Fourth of July!


Phil,
Revora Network Leader and
Executive Director of the Revora Association

Congrats!  :mellowthumbsup:

 

Nice page, nice achievement with the servers for BFME (still a great game), to get it running again. Maybe new players will keep this game alive.

Even though I didn't see this topic yesterday, a big happy birthday from my side as well. I was stoked when I discovered T3A Online, infact, I played some BFME1 games earlier tonight on the server. Still getting my ass whooped, but alas, being able to play multiplayer via the game itself instead of using a 3rd party application is the best.

 

Here's hoping to many more server projects in the future supporting even more old and abandoned EA titles :)

Glad to see things are going well Phil! I knew you back in the BFME modding days in '05 through my brother "Master Windu".  Keep up the good work.

Must of been a long time since I've been here. After clicking the link in the email, guessing what the password is, I still don't remember this place.
This morning was the most glorious morning in the history of the earth, peace is upon us, a gift to every man, women and child from the brotherhood of Nod. Victory, not just for our people, but for our species, the time for questioning is over, rising from our trenches, our bunkers, our factories, we must all now partake in the technology of peace. One purpose, one vision, tiberium is the way and the life, today the sun rises on a new world, and a new people, the end is the beginning

I was surprised to even get an email from Revora. I was part of this community a looong time ago (when C&C: Generals was a new game). Revora got me into modding games is where my passion for game design began. To this day I still speak with people that I met here, have met many in real life. Revora has indeed been a huge part of my life, even if I have moved on from here.

 

Happy birthday Revora, may you live forever!

 

edit: took me forever to remember my password. Then I remembered what stupid 12-year-old-me would have used.

Wohl bekommts' :)

"To know what question we may reasonably propose is in itself a strong evidence of sagacity or intelligence. For if a question be in itself incongruous and begs for uncalled-for answers, it holds, sometimes, besides embarrassing the proposer, the disadvantage to seduce the unguarded listener into giving absurd answers, and we are presented with the ridiculous spectacle of one (as the ancients said) milking the he-goat, and the other holding a sieve beneath."

I had an idea a series of "Years of service" badges for signatures.

Like a badge for 10 years, 9 years etc.
