AWN is Closing Down

Post by DieselPheonix » Wed Oct 14, 2015 4:50 pm

The site and forums look to be taken down permanently. The DM section will probably be moved.

I'm going to laugh if an AW game comes out and becomes a hit as we'll be the only AW-fansite at all at this rate.

Unfortunately, this is a proper for reals closure, rather than something going horribly wrong with server/hosting and having no way to put it back up for a while.

Didn't IS hint about releasing a new AW sometime last year though? At least it's something they will consider..

Still no word on where the DM section is moving. I suppose I should not have put off trawling it for interesting maps as it is poorly sorted.

On that note, the previous site crashes have been a boon since there is little for me to look over elsewhere.

I appreciate your attempts to misdirect me, Xen, but I stand by Dec. 12, 2015. 12 December 2015 for all you weird date heathens.

It would certainly be ironic if the news of the site's closure caused a surge of activity that postponed it indefinitely. Of course, so far it has been more of a trickle or a few droplets in the rusty, hole-filled bucket.

Good riddance. No one there played the game, and the staff didn't care enough to update their site for AW4. They had 7 years to do it.
