Thank you to everyone who participated in the Winter Storm tournament. I’d also like to thank Incos for all the promoting he did!
In the beginning of the story of Braveheart, everyone’s favorite epic hero, the evil tyrants of the time thought it was their right to rape everyone’s new bride.
Braveheart married his beloved in secret to avoid this horrific abuse.
The evil rulers didn’t like that.
What happened to him resulted in the birth of a hero who would fight against oppressive rule and tyranny, for all the people who just wanted to live in peace.
Tupac, likewise, was wrongly treated at RU. He watched others mistreated and abused. Even as a child, he wanted justice. He wanted to fight for a better world.
The grown-up Tupac has created a better world for Warcraft 2, for us. We can now play in peace, and enjoy the game we love, without being harassed, insulted, banned, belittled, and antagonized under tyrannical, indifferent leadership.
Tupac has made Warcraft 2 great again.
Tupac, you’re our Braveheart.

THANK YOU EVERYONE for making War2USA’s Christmas Party Special Event AWESOME!!! Last night was a fantastic success, and we definitely got the record number of users logging into our server to play tonight!! Also would like to thank Moriouce and FrostyInsanity for their new Christmas themed maps “Christmas Time” and “Poinsettia” which we played tonight, some of each. What a great night. SOOOO many players!! Many on voice chat too! And we got a BRAND NEW PLAYER, Baxus, WELCOME!!! =)

Take a look and if you haven’t already, do follow War2USA’s Twitch channel so you don’t miss any of the fun!
Here is a list of the players from last night. There were a bunch of smurfs also but I’m gonna assume they are the players below. But maybe there were even more than we know about.
Snoopy if you weren’t a smurf, sorry for not adding you! I think you were, though!
5 SophieTurners and several Jokers I’m pretty sure were above players smurfing
The night couldn’t have gone better! It was super fun and everyone was just having a great time playing the best game ever made!
Merry Christmas to everyone!!
Kurtz shared tonight (was Dec. 13th, 2019 but I stayed up past midnight!) that he found a receipt dated Dec. 13, 1999 for Warcraft 2!
CaptainKurtz celebrated his 20 year anniversary of playing the best game ever made and shared this sweet picture and note with our community!
I remember CaptainKurtz from half a lifetime when I was a teenager and even back then he hosted “High Seas Rumble”, which he also did a few hours ago on his 20th anniversary of playing Warcraft 2.
Thank you for your kind words and lovely note, Kurtz. It means a lot that you are finding peace and enjoyment with all of us at War2USA.
I’m glad you made War2USA your Warcraft 2 home and look forward to many great games to come! Don’t feel bad about tonight, I purposely stacked the teams for the away team since I know like me, you enjoy a challenge. 🙂
I would like to thank all the players who took part in today’s tournament! The versatility of players was tested as players were met with small maps, big maps, land maps, water maps, high res, low res, hybrid maps, and constantly changing allies! To top it off, an FFA was thrown in at the end!
Not all W2 players are brave enough to play an assortment of brand new maps in a competition, so kudos to those who were! We also met a number of players new to War2USA server, so welcome!
Our 3 remarkably versatile finalists who took 3 points each over the 5 map series were Ragner, Rebelrouser, and Nedro.
Due to time constraints on a player needing to leave soon, rather than 1sing out the finalists, we went with a 3 way FFA (which both added another layer of versatility testing, and added more of a luck element to this fun-level tournament) to determine the winner.
The tournament winner is Nedro. Congratulations, Nedro!
