Nicely done review. The reviewer lists things he likes and things he doesnt
like. I have to pretty much agree with all of it.

It would be even nicer if it didn't take 15 minutes to load to get by the
$^%$##^*^ing ad.I guess they don't want anyone with dialup to bother with their
site??

I noticed this when I went to read their Victoria review. Compared to
how the old wargamer used to be, before they got bought out by the
aspiring multi-national, matrix games, it really is graphic intensive.
I hardly ever got there now anyway, mainly cos of poor design, but
also a dislike for matrix buisness practises. I guess Messers Kroll
and Heath have made up now.

once they reach a certain size they all have to do something. No matter
what direction they go some people arent going to like it. As long as they
all choose different things then I guess we can all be happy with at leat
one of the game mags. Forcing me to watch a commercial is one of the least
bothersome

They still have content? I thought they had just become a shill for
some game store. The front page promises to redirect to the content
section, but it never does, just keeps cycling that irritating
animated image. The image is, of course, the only link on the page,
so you can't even force it to redirect to the content. Since they
redesigned the webpage intentionally to accomplish this effect, and
haven't fixed any of what I consider basic yet crippling flaws, I am
forced to assume that this is the image they intend to project -
despite what should be the obvious effect on any claim of editorial
integrity.

If an infinite number of monkeys at an infinite number of keyboards
could eventually generate every web page out there, my verdict on the
redesigned "Wargamer": two monkeys, ten minutes.

I find no fault with the site.
I'm on 64kBit, it loaded reasonably fast (<30s); also, the site does not
require Javascript. (In fact, on my old browser it does not work with
Javascript turned on).

If you wish for the sites you visit to not shower you with graphics, I
would suggest that you use a browswer that allows you to not load them.

I saw no ads.

You can bypass the ad -- press the "wargamer" icon in the corner of
the screen. Bypasses are common on decent sites which use flash ads
-- but not universal, which is a real pain for dialup users.

It's possible I was; I spent 7 months in hell (aka "tech support at an
outsourced call center") and didn't have time for most of the groups I
used to read. I'm just getting back to this one... and had to bite
off about a dozen replies to month old messages.

Given my behaviour elsewhere, I think I'm still working off some of
the bitterness over being fired before I could quit.
