    Howdy!! I'm so curious about how everyone found out about Ember. I was randomly going through my spam founder when I saw I had a message from the Firefall Forums. I checked it out and it had some broken links but just enough working ones to let me know about Ember. It looks like I missed the petition and the crowd funding campaigns, doh! I loved playing Firefall back in the day but when I tried it on Steam I did not enjoy what I found so I stopped playing it.

    So again, how'd everyone happen to find out about Ember? :)

    The Firefall forums(a post, not a message). I feel like that's going to be a pretty common answer.

    I wonder what about people that quit when Firefall was so drastically changed? And thank you! I'm reliving sooo much nostalgia today!!

    I was one of those-I was looking through the forums for a post I had made and found Em8-er. One of the best things I've found.

    Pure luck! Before I had any email, I for a lark peeped at the FF forums and saw references. Luckiest visit the dead old forums ever!

    I was searching for info around the end of july in 2016 about the future of Firefall, and the reason why they simplified it this much after its launch, when I saw the petition for Ember in the google search results.

    I got a pm on the old forum about em-8er quite a while ago, but was busy with other stuff at that time, but I joined at the start of this year or so to just lurk a bit and see what's going on.

    i had a urge to play firefall after a 1 year hiatus due to the game simply not working anymore with my potato pc and since i finally puckered up and bought a high-end pc i decided to see what remained of the game used to loved so much... after seeing its decrepit state i took one last walk through coral forest taking screenshots of every battleframe i owned as well as my old P-39 Cobra LGV and any landmarks i deemed worthy of remembering (most of the map...)
    i rarely ever used the FF forums so i actually happened across it by watching a few Farewell Firefall Vids until i came across one that mentioned Em-8er and all the stuff that went down between Mark Kern and Red5. (like i said, rarely ever used the Forum so this was news to me...)
    After that i happened upon the Teaser Vid for the petition, a Q&A, and the 3D art video for the Thumper. eventually it lead me to this site and here i am today, spouting my life's story in this thread at 12am...

    I've been following Mark's Nostalrius Petition Delivery campaign on twitter. So I saw Ember's inception there :)

    I opened my email and there it was with an artistic image of a lady's behind that could be aero's and the title EM8ER. Strange as it was looking closely i noticed a mech structure in the picture and this got me thinking hmm could it be that this game would have mechs?

    Ever since then my detective skills had paid off thanks a bunch i am looking forward to the bike too :p

    I found Em8er when I was searching the FF forums for news and announcements. It showed me more at Reddit then I cross checked the info by Google then voila, I found it. It didn't took me an hour to find the Em8er website.

    Heard Mark talking about Nostalrius; Crixa & Indigogo and the rest is history.

    Fairly simple on my end, joined on the first couple of weeks after the discord was created by finding a steam forum thread speaking of how firefall was going down for good and there was a link to EM-8ER, so i went there and it started.

    Right after, I made a steam review speaking about Firefall, the old Firefall and EM-8ER, it got a good 145 ratings with 132 upvotes which i'm guessing equates to about 400-500 views, it brought us plenty of people, most likely a decent 40-50, including our great Torgue as he mentioned above.

    I think it was that review by @Terib.Shadow that brought me here...
    I was looking on FF's steam page if it was still up because I had some issues starting it. That's where I found Teribs review and here I am.

    Wow this is fascinating. It seems like everyone found out a little differently though the Firefall forums being the main one.
