Welcome to Widelands.org
Widelands is a free, open source real-time strategy game with singleplayer campaigns and a multiplayer mode. The game was inspired by Settlers II™ (© Bluebyte) but has significantly more variety and depth to it. Still, it is easy to get started through playable tutorials.
This website is the home of the Widelands community. You are invited to visit the forums: discuss strategies, find partners for multiplayer games, help with translations, voice your opinion on graphics, music and much more.
Widelands is currently (and will always be) under development - you can get a feel for what is worked on by looking at the changelog. Everybody is invited to help out too - we need 2D and 3D artists, sound effect creators, composers, map makers, translators, test players, web programmers and C++ coders. All skill levels are welcome - just start working on something or ask in the forums for pointers.
tournament 2016: second phase
With four people at equal score, the tournament will have a second phase for tie-breaking purposes (not really; it is mostly an excuse to play some more ). The second phase will consist of three games played in teams of 2v2, with teams changing every game, so that everyone will be teamed with everyone else once and against everyone else twice. Individual victories then will decide the winner. In case of tie, the tournament will have many ex-aequo winners.
All the games will be played on the archipelago sea map, and every player will have a different starting position every time. The three games are planned as such
|king of nowhere (blue)||WorldSavior (green)||vs||notabilis (yellow)||Sirver (red)|
|WorldSavior (blue)||notabilis (green)||vs||Sirver (yellow)||king of nowhere (red)|
|notabilis (blue)||king of nowhere (yellow)||vs||Sirver (green)||WorldSavior (red)|
The first game has been agreed for wednesday 18 january at 18:30 UTC.. As always, spectators are welcome. hopefully, putting the strongest players together in one of the most difficult maps will result in some very interesting games.
(if some admin knows how to make writings in actual colors, he can change the names to display the color they will be playing or something like that and then remove this parhentesis)
