Briar was asking about this, and rather than necroing a mostly unimportant thread, just going to repost this here. We can probably alter it as so desired anyway. (We are the winners after all)
MAG Season - Mostly dull mainly because EndMaster hadn’t joined the cast yet. Some of the older people liked it though. Most of the original cast from this era are dead now. Still, sometimes original cast member Alex shows up.
Mafia Season - There was a boring ongoing Mafia storyline, but this was about when EndMaster joined the cast so he was pretty much carrying this season all by himself. It was still worth watching just for him alone. This was also when the show changed its name from MAG to the more recognizable CYS.
BHB Season - This was about when Berka and some others like Aman, Tan, Uglick and Bo joined the cast. This injection of new blood helped liven up the show. Some still feel this was one of the best seasons since while there was adult humor, it was still fun for the whole family to enjoy.
Others feel it was a little "bland" but it should be noted that this season did start off with a major conflict known as the Great Penguin vs. Mustache War. Later on, there was another conflict called the Spork vs. Strawberry Pudding War. Silly perhaps, but again fun for the whole family.
During this time a spin off called Forum Games was introduced in an effort to keep the main show on track. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but it soon became filled with several retarded and unlikable characters.
Warrior Cats Season - We don’t talk about this season. Horrible set back after a good previous season. Also there was a rise in shitty subplots involving dumb ass minor characters like Ryder, Honor, Melissa, etc. About the only positive bits were the good characters mocking the shitty ones.
Bad Mods Season - While maybe not as horrible as the WC season, it was horrible in other ways mainly due to corrupt producers fucking around with the format by attempting to copy a different inferior show and censoring things that wouldn’t even have been censored back during the BHB Season and paradoxically allowing other things that were even worse! Thankfully those involved were fired on morals charges involving child sex rings (Pedo Mod Kiel) and embezzlement (Grifter Mod Seth).
Still, the final episodes of this season were considered some of the best of all time and introduced some cast members that would become staples in the next season.
As an added bonus The Forum Games spin off was thankfully canceled, bringing an end to a show that lasted far too long.
Villain Season - Possibly due to all the complaints about last season, the show was completely retooled and went in a different direction. While this seemingly worked out with better storylines and cast members like Steve and Mizal have taken more center stage, there were some who complained about the show becoming too edgy and grimdark.
This season was fairly successful, however it began to become "formulaic" over time. One of the problems is the Villains ended up winning against all potential antagonists with great ease. While watching them generally find new ways to be cruel was entertaining, the end result was usually the same. A couple ideas to combat this were tried with mixed results.
One idea was having the Villains fight each other, but that never quite worked out as planned. Constant script rewrites and problems with the actors resulted in a lot of canceled storylines. So things typically remained status quo.
The other idea, more controversial idea was giving the character EndMaster a daughter. It was assumed with all the grimdark going on, perhaps showing a "softer side" to some of the Villains would appeal to a larger audience.
While there wasn't any problem between the main two actors, the daughter character was HIGHLY annoying to not just the audience but also to the other actors. Reports of conflict behind the scenes were frequent. A few of the actors even quit, in fact the Villain season began to end its run with many of the Villains just unceremoniously written out or in some cases killed off. Long time actor Malk was removed this way, though the actor had been going through a mental break at the time.
Eventually a new actress replaced the old one as a new daughter who seemed to be a better fit, but it was still obvious a new direction was needed, which led to...
Site WAR Season - While it had been hinted at for a long time even all the way back in the BHB season and had only slowly escalated since then, this season finally addressed the relationship between CYStia and their neighbors the CoGites.
While tensions had always been been there, it all finally came to a head due to their insane degenerate leader Jason attempting to RAPE CYStian warrior princess Briar Rose who was there as a diplomatic representative.
Many of his own people were even appalled by such an act and were getting tired of his brand of tyranny for years. The time for rebellion among his own people had arrived.
While Briar managed to fight her way out of hostile CoGite lands and the CYStian forces managed to strike a significant blow against the CoGite government, weakening Chief Jason’s position, the fight still went on for the CoGite rebels who found allies in the unlikeliest of places.
Or at least that looked like how the season was going.
As it turned out, the CoGite rebels began fighting among themselves or otherwise losing complete focus in what their goals were in the first place. The CYStians while having already achieved their own goals uncharacteristically attempted to help them, but to no avail, the CoGite rebels barring a few exceptions proved to be just as big of faggots as the loyal ones.
The storyline was wrapped up quickly with Mizal recruiting a couple of the worthy ones into CYStia and EndMaster setting the CoGite rebel base on fire, having sex with all of their mothers, and generally laughing the whole time before he left.
It wasn’t exactly the ending to the storyline that was expected, but surprises are always welcome in a long running series like this one.
Season is still ongoing, but has certainly been the most exciting one yet. Ratings haven’t been this high since the overthrowing of Pedo Mod Kiel and Grifter Mod Seth.
Thank you for this. It clears up some ignorance I have had about the general timeline of things.
I am thankful that I only came here after you had begun to reign openly. The empty void it must have been before that would have driven me away forever.
Added notes to both.
... I love this. I love you. That is all.
Updated the history.
Agreed. It's also cool to see the EndMaster character again generally being what he was always meant to be, some faceless horror from beyond causing chaos and strife, not having all these "daughters" pop up and then being nice to them.
Though I like how they incorporated the new daughter to work more in line with the whole causing chaos bit. I think the actress they got works better than the old one.
I like it too.
I heard the next episode in the Briar: Warrior Princess show is going to be a musical. I'm cautiously optimistic.
I call it, "Get that game back where it came from, or so help me." ^_^
I'm a warrior princess? ... Cool! ^_^
Sandwich porn and the odd spork vs strawberry pudding war. Don't know how that happened, but it did and it was powerful.
I just remembered I had a warrior cats neko nya :3 story at some point, too! Deleted with the rest of the trash! Nyaahahahhaha >:3c
The spork vs. strawberry pudding war was about the only major conflict during the BHB season.
Sandwich porn started during the end of the (ugh) Warrior Cats to the Bad Mods seasons just like most bad things that occurred during that dark time.
Don't Forget the Great Penguin vs. Mustache War! (which ushered the BHB Season in with a Bang)
Great Moments In Forum History
I dunno how I missed that one. I'll have to update the main post to include both of those conflicts (Pen vs Mus and Straw vs Spork) in the BHB season.
Updated the history to reflect the surprise twist this season!
"Grifter Mod Seth"? Now that you mention i, I don't think I've seen anybody of the Seth sort in quite a long time. I'm only reminded of his existence through the "Seth approves" comments on various older stories. Could somebody tell me what happened with him?
He was making a gay visual novel or something and started a Kickstarter for it, posted various links to it on the site, including editing the link into the description for what was once the most played game on the site, Snow (which also apparently got deleted). Then, once he had enough money, he ended up bolting. The fact that Pedo Mod Kiel got taken down just made sure that he stayed away.
All this led to the old saying "Kiel's a fag, Seth's a cunt", or something to that effect.
>tfw no mention of the Tim and Chris spin-off
