Hi everyone,

Just had a conversation with YOWZA and we've agreed to discontinue the ACME servers as they currently exist. The last day will be Jan 2.  The forum will be migrated to a new web server along with railwarz.com forum which will finally reopen. We will look at alternative game server possibilities, I have full backups of all servers and it will not be an issue to spin up new ones in short order. Please let me know of any questions or comments. As always, please join our discord server (https://discordapp.com/invite/njqWMqE)  for real time interaction.

OK I know it's kinda ugly right now but it will take some time to clean up. If you're reading this you are on the new forum host.

There have been so many over the years to help keep the best video game ever made and modified going.
 Thank you worm, greider and everyone for all the good times at ACME.

Thank you WORM, YOWZA, and Greider for letting us call ACME our Q2 home for so many years. Thank you cleaner for your generous drunken donation to the vent server which probably wouldn't be up still if it wasn't for you. Thank you to all the admin's for your diligent administering of even pub games and (or lack there-of) Wink.

A lot of great times and great shellackings were had. I've made quite a few good friendships here. From betting NHL playoffs for a home team jersey with Fors, talking hockey and how shitty LA is with angry, getting drunk on vent with cleaner (and owning him), playing cs-go with the Canadian targe+, ball busting rick and his tiny micro dick, to repeatedly owning h00ps 1v1 on caco (this guy just can't get enough)... It's been a great run, and there is more to come im sure of it.  For those that I haven't had the pleasure of talking with too much, best of luck to you all. God bless.

Also, shout out to the late ACME players who would surely be rolling over in their grave right now reading this post.
RIP KT - Lefty - Shelly

Take care everyone.

Ditto Stan. Big thanks to YOWZA especially for funding this whole thing, as well as worm, greider, and all the other admins/folks that had a hand in maintaining this community over the years. I was giddy with excitement in 2012 when I got a wild hair to play q2ctf again and stumbled upon the ACME community. I'll never forget early on when Legend was like 'so rust, like, THE rust?' I bought fell out my chair Smiley. Additional kudos to alka for organizing those first two cups and RUSTY for carrying the torch on the third. Target, nice job with the casting, that was cool to see for such a small community. There are a lot of others worthy of praise for their efforts to support the community. I just hope I brought a level headed additional body to the frag fest.

It was great catching up with old friends and making new ones. If you hear pots, pans and glasses clanking in the background on teamspeak, don't frett, it's just me making a sandwich....or a cocktail...or both Smiley. Who wants to play some league of legends with me? Smiley

This makes me sad, but let's be honest.  We've all known this day would come for several years now.

Thanks Yowza and WORM for keeping this thing going as long as possible.

On the bright side, we can always meet up on the Tastyspleen servers for some RA2 or CTF.  You can find h0ps and I on there Sunday nights and random other times.  We'd usually head over after the CTF on ACME was winding down.

Where there is creation, an end to that creation is sure to follow. This is how it has always been, and will continue to be.

Whether that ending lasts forever... well... let's just say that's up to you to decide.
