Weewar currently down

Weewar has been down for a couple weeks now. The database is refusing connections from the main server, and I have limited access to fix that. I am working to resolve it but it may take some time.

Temporary Downtime & Zapp

Weewar is currently down for about half an hour as I have Zapp resign from all of his games and delete them from his headquarters. This should relieve some of the bad server stress and slowdowns that you all have been experiencing. Please bear with us. Thanks. Update (17 minutes later): Weewar is back up. […]

Weewar currently down

I’m looking into it. Hope to be back up shortly. Fingers crossed it’s an easy fix. Edit (a few minutes later): All back up and running! Let me know if something is still awry.

Weewar back up from Amazon cloud outage

Our Amazon cloud server went down last night due to heavy storms in the DC area (which also took down a number of other major web services). Weewar is now back up and running. I’m not sure what happened to our blog background though…

Database cleanup

Weewar is back online, but I need to take it down for a few minutes to backup the database and clear out old games that are clogging up the server and Zapp’s cycles. We’ll be back shortly. Game timers will be reset upon return. And we’re back. I deleted 24,000 games that were old and […]

Temporarily down again

Weewar is down again due to another database issue. We’re aware of the problem and are working to solve it. Please bear with us. 2:06pm EST: And we’re back!

Outage Today

We are experiencing some database issues today and are working to resolve them. Please bear with us. Monday: We’re back online! Thanks to Aaron at EA for resolving the issue. I’ve reset all of the game timers.

Downtime to fight spam

Weewar will be taken offline at 2pm EST (UTC-4) tomorrow (Sunday) for a spam-fighting update. See it in your time. Update 2:03pm: We’re back. Players who have not yet ended their turn in a game are no longer allowed to post in the forums. This should help reduce the wave of forum spam we have […]

New downtime

Weewar is experiencing some memory problems, causing the server to go down spontaneously over the last couple days. We’re looking into it. Update Aug. 21, 12:28am: We are still having server issues. Zapp will be turned off while we try to figure out the cause of the memory problems. Update Aug. 22, 2:51am UTC-4: Server […]


Weewar is currently experiencing some issues with its Amazon servers. Please bear with us as we work to address the problems. Update (July 12, 20:16 EST): We are back up and running though Weewar is a bit slow. The Amazon server on which Weewar was hosted seemed to have stalled, so we had to start […]
