After 7 years in beta, the game finally hits the 1.0 milestone! Go grab the game if you haven't done so already!




Notable changes:

Gameplay:
- Weapons and armour system tuned for improved competitive gameplay.
- Removed weak ammo system.
- Octagon hitboxes for consistent hitbox size from all angles.
- Improved team play with on-screen teammate indicators and improved mumble support.
- New duel and Bomb&Defuse maps (wdm11, wdm16, wdm17, wbomb6).
- All maps have gone through considerable optimizations!

Community features:
- Global statistics together with match result saving, demo downloads and skillrating (completely optional!).
- Improved community features such as built-in IRC client, in-game news and friends lists.

Engine:
- The engine now better utilizes GPU capabilities to render animated skeletal models, allowing massive battles without FPS drops.
- Drasticly improved map loading speeds and performance.
- New "e-sports" gfx features such as r_drawflat to give your own personalized wall and floor colours in any map and possibility to disable all colours from lightmaps.
- New easier and more modern user interface which is fully customizable and scriptable with html/css/js - style syntax!
- Improved shoutcasting abilities like OGG stream support for Warsow TV, chase cameras and support for spectator-only hud.

Ah nice, you guys are still around! I'll try to join irc now and then, but I have to practise first, because my skills were really awful last night. (after a 3y break? how long has it been?)

We aren't so much 'still around', but rather 'respawned' since 1.0 ;-)

I'm with teddy!

Really gotta give the promoters an extra pad on their shoulder(s) for a good job done.

I started playing like half a year into 0.5, so I wouldn't know. But 0.5 was big.

OFC it was bigger. I started back then!

Maybe I'll download this game next week.

i think 1.0 popularity is as impressive as 0.5, counting that many people on servers are new to any quake-like fps.

I'm with tongue: awesome job PR team!

@el_moto : and 0.1 was bigger then ... oh, come on :D

0.21 was the biggest one, because of that german tv that promoted Warsow.

Anyway, this one may be not as good as others in numbers, but it is better on the player reactions to the game.

And that they actually play with weapons, and not that purple thingy ;) (instagib)

Thanks to the FFA servers that were the first server they saw when they joined.

Also consider that There's still ~40 players in the last version playing..
