Axis and Allies Ultimate Site
Two-and-a-half years in the making, a new A&A site is born.  The following is from its creator, Rommel:

Mission Statement: is a community fansite for the Axis and Allies PC Real Time Strategy game. We hope to provide players, new and old, with a wealth of Axis and Allies related content and information; as well as a friendly place for the entire A&A community to gather and sound off, in a polite way of course. We've done our best to breakdown every relevant aspect of the game, and have related forum threads so that YOU can contribute to this growing online Axis and Allies RTS reference.  Maybe you might even learn something yourself.. If you've played the game the last 5 years, or only the last 5 days, we think we have something to offer everyone...

When I say this is the ultimate in A&A sites...I mean it.  If you haven't already checked it out, what are you still reading this for?!?

Map Links Fixed & Ad Free
Spotter's Guide links for Map downloads have been fixed.  Hopefully I got them all.  Fileplanet links should still work.

Also, I removed the GameSpy banner ads.  No longer being hosted by need to have their ads, eh? ;)

Axis & Allies: RTS, R.I.P.?

On March 3, 2009, Axis & Allies players reported that they could no longer access the online services of GameSpy.  They have since received the following information from GameSpy:

"The game has been officially discontinued with our server database.  This means the game will no longer have servers appearing in the server menu.  The game has been permanently shut down in terms of servers being displayed by GameSpy.

The game makers declined to continue service in December.  They were given a few months and then the service turned off from our end since the bill was no longer being paid."

TGS-Drew of TimeGate Studios has followed up with:

"As stated before, we do not handle the relationship with GameSpy and its Axis and Allies servers.  But we are currently attempting to resolve this issue.  As soon as we know more information, I will let you know right away."

Meanwhile, Zeus over at the GameSpy Forums is looking into creating his own public server.  Head over there for updates and to give support.

New Mod: World at War
Stukoke posted on the TimeGate forums:

"I have created a mod which adds new units as well as models to the game.  Units like the German Stg III, and Flak 18 88mm gun, British Churchills Mk I, and Mk III, as well as the A43 Black Prince. Many additional things to see."

Posted download link.  I cannot confirm the download as the site used was very slow to me (over one hour for 16MB).  Maybe you will have better luck.
