I "found" it when it was first released. I heard that Rob was asking a select few people to test his new game. I was thinking of doing it but decided against it. After quite some time went by, I kept seeing Grid12 threads show up in Social (old forums) so I finally decided that I'd try it. So I got talking to Tarbomb on the old IRC and he gave me a code. That was about a year and a half ago now, I think.
I'm just "israphial" ingame. You can search me on the tank stats search bar to confirm - I main Minotaur (level 60-something). I saw you ingame yesterday, I think. We voyed together for about an hour before you got off.
Edit: "youingameyesterday" is not a word, my dear iPod. Don't do mobile posts, folks.

I asked in the Wildshadow forums what the old devs are doing after leaving the rotmg. Someone told me about Rob's new game project, which had closed beta testing phase coming soon. I emailed him, and 2012-12-05 he answered. "The new game is called Grid 12. We are still in the very early stages of defining what the game will be, and therefore things are very rough, buggy, incomplete, you name it. But this is why we need testers: to help us evaluate what is working and what is not."
One night, as i lay upon my bed, dreaming for a better game experience, I stumble upon a great forum. A forum so great, I could not contain myself. 2 hours of browsing later, i come across somebody named rob. Upon discovering he was a realm of the mad god admin, I quickly took interest in his life.
Fast forward 2 years

One day, I was screwing around, contemplating the butthole that Realm had become, when I decided to see what ROb had been up to after he left WildShadow. I found his LinkedIn or something, and found out that he had a new company called Jetbolt. Upon finding the site, I came across the game forums, coincidentally, the day after the code system went public. I picked up a code from Tarbomb and well, here I am now.
