A week or so ago I was asked to make a Facebook post about a few active Wolf:ET communities. I did, and almost 1000 comments later, I realised just how excited you all are still for the game!
So, with the help of =F|A=ScoOfi, we decided it was probably a good idea to try and address a bunch of the questions that came from that Facebook post, and make a clearer guide on how to play W:ET in 2019, how to watch it and highlight some of the communities that are still trucking.
While it’s nice that you’re all still here, chatting about W:ET, there are other forums dedicated solely to the game. If you’ve got any questions about W:ET from a technical or gameplay standpoint feel free to post them here or head over to the Fearless Assassins forum to ask.
“Where can I download Wolf:ET?” was the most prominent question aside from “People still play this?!”, so here’s what to do:
You can also download Return to Castle Wolfenstein here! – which also has a handy FAQ to help out with any tech queries.
So you’ve downloaded the game, now what? You want the best experience, with configs that are already done for you, right? Here we go:
So you’ve downloaded the game, got your config sorted and you’re ready to play. You don’t want to play vs bots, though. You want to test your mettle against real folks.
You’re in. You’ve caught the bug once more. Your spamming V-say commands and racking up the kills. Now what you need is a clan of like-minded folks:
HOW TO CHAT
Sadly, Xfire and MIRC are no more. Replaced by newer, shinier technologies. Three of the bigger communities are on Discord:
There are also still a couple of big Teamspeak 3 servers:
HOW TO WATCH
Watching some really players shine is always a joy, and thankfully there are some brilliant people playing and streaming:
In addition to a thriving community, there are also upcoming events!
Between May 17th and 19th in Krefeld, Germany, ET LAN is taking place. Check out the link for more information.
In addition to the LAN there’s also an active ETPRO cup, with 14 teams competing in 6v6 tournament, and 20 teams competing in a 3v3 tournament.
As you can see, Wolf:ET is still going strong after all these years. A massive thank you to everyone in the community who still both love and play the game, and hopefully this makes it easier for some people to rediscover the game that started it all for Splash Damage.
