Comment On This Whenever You Come Back

Hey, I'm Ryan.

This might be the last discussion I ever create.

Many of you have probably seen my videos online like on YouTube as Ryan Smith, but I used to be a hardcore BBR/BBG player from 2012-2015 as well as a forumer here back in late 2013 and throughout 2014.

This place, chatango, palringo, and most importantly, the servers on Battle Bears used to be super alive and provided me tons of memories and friendships which now give me nostalgia whenever I ponder about the good times I had as a 13 year old kid.

I thought this thread could be for old-time users like me who only come on to check in every few months or years or so and basically say we were here. We can all simply comment saying something dumb such as “________ was here” and talk about what we've been up to since the last visit.

Maybe this will serve as a testament of what Battle Bears meant to us random users all across the globe. Although it will never be the same on the forum or on the apps as they once were, and many blame SkyVu for changing their games and making various mistakes, Battle Bears will always have a place within our minds and within our hearts.

Maybe we will show new generations of gamers how amazing the past was when we were younger and less busy. When we had the time to master our craft, join clans, fight wars, and stay up all night in chat rooms discussing the one thing we could all relate to: Battle Bears.

Maybe new users who happen to stumble onto here after playing the games SkyVu currently offers will come across this and be inspired to begin an entirely new era on this site, reviving the activity and having good times like we did long ago.

Maybe the future will be brighter than the past.

Who knows.

But I do know I had a part of my childhood as a tween/early teen dedicated to this place and I will never forget it.

So, whenever the forums pop into my memory, I will return here and not simply see how dead it is and that if I'm lucky there will be one other person online. Instead, I will look through this discussion and see there is a chance that maybe, just maybe, it will come back.

Anyway, I am going to go on with my life like I was since I last came on in June of 2016. I'll start this off with the first reply of how I am doing and if any old-timers or even new-timers find this you can follow suit and we can continually check in with each other.

Other than that, if you used to know me and want to talk you can always find me on social media:

insta- @ryansmithrs
musical.ly- @ryansmithrs (cringey app, barely go on anymore)
twitter- @ryansmithrs17
snapchat- @ryansmithaha
youtube- Ryan Smith
email- ryansmithmgmt@gmail.com

I hope you are having a blast living your lives. See you!

PS: Never did this formally, but I feel like I owe it to SkyVu or someone or something idk. I'll do it right now forumally:

Rest In Peace Battle Bears & your Forums. Someday maybe you will rise from the depths. We will see what happens...

    To begin, I am 16 years old now and on October 17th I will be turning 17 and hopefully passing my Driver's Test to get my license and a car.

    A couple weeks ago my summer began and I left for California the day after my last exam for school. I'm from New Jersey and I've never been there, yet I've always longed to go so it was the best experience.

    I went for a convention called VidCon where people who create videos online meet other creators, their fans, and advertisers.

    This summer I will be busy filming new content as well as doing summer work for my AP English and Biology classes. Next year in school will be the worst probably, as I'll be in 11th grade when your report card really matters for college and you take the SATs.

    I wish I didn't have to go to college and I could instead be on social media and then begin writing books. Maybe I will become really successful by 2019 when I am supposed to enter college in the autumn and I will skip out on being under so much debt. Hopefully it happens.

    I would love to hear how all of you are doing with your lives too!

    Peace.

    Well, I'm ashamed to say my summer will probably be a very boring one. My current situation doesn't allow me to leave the city, and if I can, it cannot be than more than a few hours.

    Still, I plan to perfect my skills anyway in several fields since thankfully they don't require traveling. But yes, it's not that much compared to what many might have in these three months.

    I think it would be fitting to put discord.gg/bb here so any returning player can get right into the community.

    It's been a while. I remember back in the day when there were always things to discuss and forumers to discuss with. Now, it seems that no one has commented in the past three days. I used to always log into the site expecting there to be lots to do, but I guess that isn't the case any longer.
  • PiratePirate Member, MVP Posts: 29,636 Fabled
    @Guyfromanotherplanet It's because they all prefer the Discord servers now, but threads are still good for things that we don't want to be drowned in a constant walls of texts.

    Dang, I totally feel you man. I used to be a hardcore BBG/BBR player myself, and the funny part is, I was 12/13 myself back then, the good'ol days. :( Now I'm 18 years old. I came back after 2 years just because of my nostalgia, that this game used to be a part of my childhood, will never forget these times, miss my Golden times on BBR when Openfient (OF) existed, time changes everything. Any Legends still online these days?
