It’s been a few months of service issues of the IRC server used for WWN, so from this point it’s no longer going to be active. Before the server issues, the number of users in the channel were minimal regardless, so it’s time. The IRC channel information and the mibbit quicklink have now been removed from the frontpage, and the chat category quicklinks at the top of the page have been merged with the forums and news links.
The Discord and Forums are still active (and will continue to be so!) so keep using them as you already do.
Our favourite post-apocalyptic Wars game celebrates a decade! It was released this time, 10 years ago, 21/01/08 in North America and around 25/01/08 for Europe!
Still a number of years till the Japanese 10th anniversary, but I hope everyone’ll still be around in 2023!

User dxdydzd has put together an amazing youtube playlist showing a minimum turn-count S-Rank run of the entire campaign. Each one of the map playthroughs match or beat the current “lowest turn counts” for each of these missions. For some maps with alternative best turn counts (e.g. Snow Hunters with/without the Lab Map), both routes are shown, too!
You can watch it below, or here from this direct link.
