Hello. I just purchased Excitebots today.

With that said, why is Excitebots always the Game of the Month?

Welcome to the forums, Inferno.  EB has been the game of the month for a long, long time now.  It's supposed to be for whatever game people are talking most about at the time, but around here that's pretty much EB.  It would be nice to have a game get enough chatter going that it could be changed for a while.

Couple things about EB when you get online.  Lots of people are anxious to get online, only to find that they get beat a lot in the races.  Then they get upset and leave before they have a chance to practice and get better.  If you stick around, watch how other people get so many points, and practice, you'll get better and the game will be even more fun.

I go by Grandpa on the tracks, and sometimes GrannyK races with me.  We were just talking about jumping in for a little practice now, hopefully see you in there...
A computer once beat me at chess, but as it turns out it was no match for me at kickboxing... ;)

I'll give you a pass since you just got the game.  You'll understand soon enough. ;)

And welcome to the boards, things have been dying off around here lately, so it's good to see new members. :D
I don't always play videogames, but when I do, I prefer Excitebots.  Keep spinning, my friends.  8)

Dying off? Go to the active user's list (By clicking where it says no. of guests and members online.) I see some people registering for an account. By some, I mean since two hours.

The game itself doesn't seem to be dying off so much, people keep coming back to it or are just getting into it.  But the chatter about it on the forums here has slowed down.

Maybe with new people coming in the interest will pick back up...

Dying off? Go to the active user's list (By clicking where it says no. of guests and members online.) I see some people registering for an account. By some, I mean since two hours.

As Joom said, the chatter and posting around here has slowed down greatly.  It used to be the shoutbox was overflowing with people chatting about racing and hooking up.  There would be new posts daily about someone racing someone else, and FWAL actually happened every Friday (Instead of once every full moon.  ::) (Has BTC turned into a Werewolf?!? :o (I mean, he does like the race the MONSTER truck. 8) (Wait, is he the real Teen Wolf!! :P)))).

Sorry, got distracted there.  Anyways, there's nowhere near that level of chatter around here anymore, nor are people racing as much as they used to.  See, for example, the numerous "I'm Retiring" threads around here.

That said, the game itself isn't necessarily dying off.  There's always new racers coming and going.  Perhaps if you stick around long enough, you can set some records and get into the rankings (it isn't too hard, there's 100 rankings and at least the bottom 50 are just people we collected scores for without there knowledge and they aren't that great of scores).  I'm sure TopStar would love to have a reason to update it again.  He hasn't had reason to for at least 6 months now!!! :o :o :o

Welcome Flash Inferno! I go by the name "Mr.Rios" online. I rarely race still although I said I'm getting back into it...But basketball is getting me really irritated so I'm trying to make varsity by practicing on the weekends now...I'm really trying to make it there...I already for got who said about scores etc...Yea don't leave after you see really high scores compared to everybody else. Hope to see ya soon. As of you seeing "people registering for accounts" I've seen lots of them since I've been here...Then I don't see a single new one that day...Some of them are just spammers etc. But glad you made it here!  ;D
