Shame, only received worms world party a week or so ago and was gonna try and make it to some games somehow, despite being on broadband, but it looks like that out now....shame.

Just looks like its gonna keep happening every few weeks doesnt it, they will take something else down and it seems as though they will kepp doing it until we only have left what they take offline.

It really does seem as though DC online is steadily coming to an end.....but at least we should still have quake if nothing else....and 4x4 i believe?

What makes me mad is we get games like Q3 that will be online forever but not the tons of originals, Q3 can be played on the PC but WWP, OT (not even on PC) and OB (same) can't be

I refuse to believe that the mystery is over. Here is an email I just received today from Sega of Europe:
Quote:
Thank you for your email.

Sega has never run these servers. Please contact the developer of Worms
World Party for more information on the servers. The developer is
Titus.

Thank you
Best regards
Edward Ford

All other enquiries 08456 090 090 (local call rate)


Both sides seem rather sure that the other side runs the server. I am pissed. Somebody has to know the fucking answer to this bullshit. Team17 says they sent the servers off to Sega, BUT Sega says they NEVER ran the servers. And besides, we can still connect to the servers, for fuck's sake. If it were truly offline, why does it say "Connected to Server"?! So I found this link at Titus' website:

http://www.titus-interactive.com/index.php?lang=en&pg=support

I'm waiting for a reply.

oh god. thats horrible. the truth is i havn't exactly been around lately. off sdoing other things. the onyl game i have been mainly playing is PSO.

Now i felt like getting bak in to my old routine.. I connected to the servers and got that error. i came here and found that it is offcially down.

that really givs a slap across my face. Same thign happened with UT. Similar circumstances with CCR ( i was in Las Vegas at the time and came back to find the news out).

All i can say is sorry. Especially to the worms players, who were keeping them alive. And HUGE thanks to Wormy. He, mostly by himself, created the worms community. I should have been there those last weeks. But I wasn't. I played like 2 times in the last two minths, and i feel like crap missing out on that. Sad

What are these?... Tears?... Hmm... sometimes life really sucks. Maybe... maybe... Crap! Life really honestly sucks! Always look on the bright side, though, i suppose. Is there a bright side? Well, at least now i can get back to my neglected, real life, but do i really want to? Nooo, i do not. Maybe someday there will be games and systems that aren't left behind when the crowd finds something "better". Since the server is really gone, i have some last goodbyes. Good bye, Good bye Good bye. Well, those are the last of the last goodbyes. Wow... really gone huh... Well it could be worse. Maybe. Somehow. Nope, im wrong. It doesn't get much worse than this. There's no more i can say, i think. Except... For every ending there is a new beginning. For every death, a new birth. Thanks a lot everyone who played. It was fun.

still worth getting great game offline and with friends even better you can have some multiplayer fun still shame, I think Team 17 is making enought money to pay someone to keep the servers running, they were becoming quite popular in the last month or so

OK guess what here is the master server that worms connects to:

master.worms.dream-key.com

So Sega of Europe does manage the server, they just don't know it. Or someone there finally found out it was still on and killed the server....or the server freaked out and needs to be rebooted.

"Hello Steve,

Thank you for your email.

This after telling me Team 17 said they didn't and to contact Sega! I realy wise we could do something but seeing how no one wants to admin shit...
