Greetings to all fellow blind, or visually impared gamers!
I hope it's not against the rule to recommend games in this forum.
(in case I am still wrong, a Moderator can freely close this thread)
The game I wish to recommend this time is: WBL (The Web Boxing League)
Normally, the main reason of recommending it is not the fact, that this game has become my favorite one round a year ago, and I keep spending the most of my, (vast) spare time with it, but the following reasons:
1. The game is a fully text-based browser MMO, with a very user friendly, and very accessable interface, so it is very easy to play for us, screen-reader users.
There are already a few members of our community playing WBL, but the most successful managers of them are Boombastic and myself, (sorry for the boosting), we both have won quite a lots of regional titles already, (our fighters have become champions in their home region), I have won a world title even already, (so had a world-champion fighter), while Boombastic has managed to win a regional title with an unbeaten fighter, which is also a very impressive achievement.
2. It is a boxing-manager genre game, but one which requires indeed lots of hard brainwork, starting with scouting your fighter's next opponents, creating, editing, adjusting fight-plans for them, deciding for strategies and tactics to apply for them to use, which can include a huge amount of conditions for each single round, then, when the time comes, watch, aka read the commentary of the fight, and find out how your fighter has performed, by learning from your mistakes, constantly correcting, adjusting, upgrading, improving your old fight-plans, and making new, even better, more efficient ones, all depending on your, and opponent's fighter build and strategies used...this grants one an intensive daily brain-excercise, plus a great entertainment of course.
Those who like planning strategies, tactics, and then watch how those have performed...will definitely enjoy this game a lot!
3. The game has a constantly active, moderate size community, (round 60 or so regular players, aka managers), and all of them are very friendly, mature adults, who are always glad to help one out, give him hints, advices, answer his questions and issues, listen to, and consider his ideas and applies, so generally tolerant and helpful people, who more than welcome new managers, and do their very best to help them progress and succeed in the game.
And I don't mean only the Moderators here, but the whole WBL-community.
So, the player-interaction, and communication is constantly very active in WBL, even without a classic chatroom, new topics, discussions keep being started in its forums, comments made in its so called "press-release rooms" quite frequently, so that one can spend just as much time communicating with people there, than playing the game itself.
So all those of you, who like occasional brain-excercise involving lots of planning, strategy, tactics, opponent-estimating, predicting his moves, while trying to pull unexpected ones on them, (yeah, just like in chess), plus, wish to become a part of an constantly active, very friendly, tolerant, and helpful community of mature adults, don't hesitate, try out WBL by all means!
(personally I have become so much addicted to it, that I have almost no time for any other games anymore, ever since I joined WBL)
