Yesterday’s launch of the Weewar forums went smoothly and we have seen hundreds of new posts in the first 24h alone. Seems like there was a big need and we are very happy to have adressed it.
The new forums are available via the community section from the main navigation. They come with a light weight ranking system, too. You start out as a Trooper (with 9 or less posts) and can achieve the following ranks: Heavy Trooper (10 posts), Raider (50 posts), Tank (200 posts), Heavy tank (500 posts) and Berserker (1000 posts). There are no Raiders yet but they can not be far off considering the current posting rate.
We have also startet testing a new API feature (code name ELIZA) that will allow anybody to create and run artificial Intelligences to participate in Weewar games. The first Bots are already working! They may not be overly clever (yet) but that will change quickly. The very first one (created by our own Bert) was Zapp Brannigan. See him play on the test server and join the AI discussion in the forum to find out more.
