Game Server Closing

On September 30, the Men of War II: Arena game server was shut down. We thank everyone who actively participated in the project life, who fought bravely on the battlefield, and even those who argued in social networks, without you it would have been too boring. However, the closure of the game server is not a reason to be sad.
