Your support is needed WWIIOL Community!

We've officially launched the 2019 Funding Campaign for WWII Online, which is designed to provide the game with an entirely new server facility, built from the ground up with all new efficiency in terms of performance and power. It also means we'll be transferring WWIIOL from Dallas TX --> Portland OR, where CRS HQ is located. 

We'll also be renewing some critical game development software, and upgrade our SpeedTree server development kit to the latest version, allowing us to have enhanced graphics for terrain objects.There's a lot more, please check the funding campaign below for a video presentation and a detailed written explanation of what more is to follow.

We're upgrading our Billing System


Attention WWII Online subscribers and supporters:  We are pleased to announce that we will be transitioning our back office billing to a new and modern billing system called, "Braintree."  This system will provide everyone with modern functionality and many more payment options such as Apple Pay and Google Pay in addition to credit cards and PayPal. This is a necessary change that will put our developers focus back onto Game Development as it will offload the need for CRS to maintain its own billing system. Please continue reading as there are important details on how to renew your subscription through our existing PayPal gateway.
