Rolling out Eliza

[Update: Back – now with Eliza]

We will be launching our new Eliza Api on Friday night (around 22 pm CET). This will enable developers to create bots that can act as players on Weewar.

We’ll provide more details on Eliza later on. We expect this update to take several hours.

    I JUST found weewar today, and now I have to wait a few more hours to play. :-( Oh well, bots will be cool to play with.

    Good old Zapp is back:

    Small change: Bot names have to start with ai_ now. And for a few days you might notice the Weewar domain being – that is only until all DNS servers are updated. We’ll switch back to on Monday.

    do you want to know if the zapp bot is stuck? i remember this happening on the test server. are there times when it won’t be “on”?

    It is supposed to be on 24/7 – clearly it got stuck now. We’ll look into it asap!
