Facebook Connect downtime

We have temporarily removed Facebook Connect from Weewar as we sort out some issues regarding it. If you normally log in using Facebook Connect and did not have a Weewar password set, please send us a message on the contact page and we will get back to you with a temporary Weewar password. We’re sorry for the inconvenience and hope to have Facebook Connect back up and running soon.

p.s. we’re aware the blog styling is off and are trying to figure out what happened there.


As some of you have noticed, Weewar is being a bit slow these past couple days. We’re looking into the cause and will be doing quick maintenance today at 4pm EST (UTC-5). See it in your time.

Update 4:05pm: We’re back up and will be monitoring Weewar for slowness issues closely.

Bug fix update

Weewar will go down briefly on Sunday, December 11, 2010 – at 8PM EST to fix a bug regarding invites to new players. See it in your time.

This was originally for Saturday, December 10 at 10PM EST but has been rescheduled.

Minor update

Weewar will go down for a few minutes at 10pm EST today for a security update. See it in your time zone.

Update 10:15pm: And we’re back!

Weewar + EA2D

I am happy to announce that Bert and myself have joined the talented EA2D team at the Electronic Arts headquarters in Redwood Shores, California. We have been looking for a strong partner for a while and I think we could not have done any better than this.

This is a significant step for Weewar and for us personally and so it took us a while to sort out all the details (and to be able to finally tell you all about it).  We very much appreciate the trust you have put into us over the past years and we are committed to live up to it during the exciting times ahead.

Great things are in store for Weewar – and thanks to EA we have the means to realize them, too!

Downtime today

We will be taking down the server for a 20-minute update this evening at 8pm EST. (See it in your time.)

An Update

Hello Weewarriors!

While my internship with the great folks behind Weewar has ended, I am happy to announced that I am now officially here to watch over the community and make sure the site runs smoothly.

In the coming weeks, we will be rolling out a new upgrade page as well as a couple other small changes. The test server will be re-launched again for you to test some new balancing changes to unit stats and gameplay. I will post more details of these changes as we introduce them. We’ve been a bit too silent on our end for the last few weeks, and I apologize and plan on remedying that. Look forward to more posts and communication soon, both here on the blog and in the forums. 

Quick update

We’ll be doing brief maintenance of Weewar at 5pm PST (UTC-7). Please bear with us, we’ll be back shortly.

[Update: 5:08pm: and we're back!]


Weewar will go down today at 11pm PST (UTC-7) for a 30-minute update. We will be pushing live a quick start guide for new players and setting up the framework for adding more guides and exercises in the future. More news on this to come after the update. Thanks for your patience!

[Update: 12:04am: And we're back!]

[Update 8/6: We'll be going down for 5 minutes at 7pm PST (UTC-7) to fix some bugs and update the new quick start guide launched yesterday.]

[Update 8/6 7:02pm: And we're back!]

Unexpected downtime

We’re aware of the server down and are working to get it back up. Stay tuned, we should be back shortly.

[Update 11:28am: And we're back! Sorry about that folks. Our database server ran out of space after trying to do a backup. I cleaned that up a bit and we're back and running.]
