It’s a sad time, The Gravity Bong has had a great ten year run but it is time to say adios. The server traffic has been in decline with the removal of Valve’s Quick Play feature so April 23, 2017 will be the day we bid goodbye to an old friend. I spent more time playing here than on probably every other game I’ve ever played combined. I missed the early days but found The Bong around year two of it’s existence and loved the days of a packed server, all day, every day. I couldn’t wait to arrive home in the afternoon and spend the next 10 hours running that intel, talking to my pals, and stepping out to smoke an occasional bowl to create that magical time shift that extended my night.

We have had a lot of regulars, a lot of drop-ins, a lot of drama, and a lot of laughs. There were a handful of players that drew me into the game even if I had other things I needed to do that day but I just couldn’t miss that opportunity. For me, The Gravity Bong created some, what I hope to be, life-long friendships with some of the greatest people I have never met. We all grew to know each other through the HUGE number of pictures, posts, rants, and hilarious threads on the website.

Please pass the word along to anyone you know that has ever played here. Invite them to find the time to return to enjoy the last days for a farewell reunion. The website will stay up indefinitely according to Helix, our great founder and leader. Post your comments and your favorite memories. Long live The Gravity Bong.
